I know, a good accountant is essential for any business!

GC Gift Boxes and Hampers - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Being in business, especially small business, can mean that the one person has to wear many "hats." However, unless you are a qualified accountant, this is one hat that I suggest you never attempt to "wear." Read More

GC Gift Boxes and Hampers - Monday, March 20, 2017

A customer once said to me, "How good or bad a business is, is not determined by what they do when things are going well, but by what they do when something goes wrong." Read More

Five Ways to Follow Up from Business Networking

GC Gift Boxes and Hampers - Thursday, August 25, 2016

Attending a networking event takes time and often includes a cost, so after a networking event it is imperative to follow up the contacts that you have met. The following five points will help to ensure that you get the most out of your networking events.

1. Ensure that you take the time to input details from the business cards that you have collected. Even if a person isn't a potential sales prospect, they could still be a good connection to have in your network e.g referral source or industry expert

2. Add a note on your database that is unique about the person that you met, ensuring that when you follow up with them, you will have a personal reminder of what you talked about and any other points that are unique to them.

3. If you want to build a relationship with a person that you have met, follow up with an individual email or telephone call. Don't make the assumption that the person will automatically remember you; remind them of where and when you met and use the unique fact that you noted down when adding the person's details to your database (this could be a personal detail about them or a subject you discussed).

4. Connect with a new contact on Social Media.

5. Share some helpful content with them. Regularly sharing information of value after meeting someone, encourages trust and helps to naturally build a solid relationship.

Three Steps To grow Your Business

GC Gift Boxes and Hampers - Monday, February 01, 2016

Unless you are quite happy for your business to just keep "ticking over," it is likely that you will be looking for ways to develop and grow your business. These three, simple but effective steps can set you off in the right direction.

1. Review your business plan - we know, we know, you all say but many businesses don't do this! A regular assessment of your business plan enables you to measure your progress. Are you achieving your goals? Reconsider where you want to be this time next year and decide how you'll get there. If you have employees, involve them. Set new objectives and growth strategies, if necessary.

2. Penetrate your existing market - many businesses concentrate most of their marketing efforts on attracting new customers. However, looking at the customers that you already have and ways in which you can get people who are already buying from you to buy more, is cheaper and easier than selling to new customers. "The best sales prospect is a prospect that is already converted - in other words, one of your current customers." e.g 

3. Make your customers feel special - customers respond to being recognised, especially in the busy, hustle of bustle of everyday life. Even with a web based business, good customer service is possible. This can be done in a variety of ways - e.g write a thank you note to a customer, letting them know that you appreciate their business or send a gift to a loyal customer on a special occasion.
