How’s Business?

When owners and managers are asked this question, it sends their thoughts in a million directions all at once. Overall, things may be running smoothly and when there’s a profit at the end of the day – even better! Those million thoughts consist of all the nuances that make up the day-to-day business and likely result in questions of your own…

My employees seem busy, but where are all the sales?

The sales are there, but what happened to my profits?

Where do I find more business?

Am I getting the best price and quality from my suppliers?

Is my technology up to date?

Why is productivity down?

Should I advertise more?

Is my employee turnover rate normal?

How do I know if my salespeople are effective?

What does it take to be competitive these days?

First of all, you’re to be congratulated! You started your business because you felt you had something great to offer a customer and you were right! Having an idea and making it sell is an amazing feat … and you made that happen. But, as your business grew, there were more things to think about than just the product or service you sell; that’s when things began to get complicated.

At one time you were only thinking about providing for yourself or your family. Today you may be thinking about 10, 30, 50, or even 100+ families – those of your employees.  Verifying inventory now requires more than a piece of scratch paper. You find yourself choosing between analyzing sales and looking for ways to improve your product or service. Of course, this is what brings on all those questions.

Every business owner and manager knows these burdens. Realistically, you’ll never be completely without them. However, it’s possible to streamline and make sense of them without stumbling through every step. Business consultants bring clarity to the portions of your business that become unclear with growth. They have experience in planning and provide solutions to problems. Most importantly, they put fresh eyes on your business and can easily identify issues, as well as strengths.

It’s hard to know everything. D Barlow Sales Solutions, LLC brings insights and experience to you along with a genuine interest in your business and the keys to make it even better.
