JOINT VENTURES…  ENJOYING SUCCESS WITH THE RIGHT COMPANY

JOINT VENTURES… ENJOYING SUCCESS WITH THE RIGHT COMPANY

If you are considering a joint venture with another company, you’re actually thinking WAY beyond yourself and your own goals.  You are thinking BIG.  Strength in numbers, as they say.  Think about it… this goes beyond the whole “I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine” mentality.  This is mutual collaboration.  This is it. This is the real deal. There are many strong reasons behind forming a joint venture, even if your business already has great growth potential and innovative ideas.  Think about it!   Why not if you can expand your business, move into new markets, perhaps even concentrate on overseas ventures?  It is worth undertaking if you are able to grow your business, and the joint venture allows you access to more markets and gives you increased technical knowledge and resources.  Before you jump in with what seems to be a perfect company to join forces with, take time to consider these questions: 1)      Are the objectives of the venture clear?  Make sure that there is constant communication with all parties involved and that nothing is assumed. 2)      Are the objectives the same?  This is important… you need to be working towards the same common goals. 3)      Are the management styles the same?  Different cultures and backgrounds could result in poor outcomes.   Be careful with this.  Discuss management techniques in-depth, and make sure that similarities outweigh the differences. 4)      Do both parties bring the same balance of assets, expertise and investment to the relationship?  If it is too imbalanced there will likely be problems. 5)      Is there an agreement on the type and amount of leadership which will...

Do These Jeans Make My Butt Look Too Big?

Do These Jeans Make My Butt Look Too Big?

– Aka “The Enlightenment of Customer Reviews” NOPE, this is not another BLAH BLAH blog about weight loss, self-image or body shaming.   Actually the title above simply suggests that if you really don’t want to know the truth, then don’t ask the question!  If you are a business owner, however, you can’t bury your head in the sand.  You better want to know if your customers are satisfied, if they would come to you again, and if there are things you could have done better.   The best and most consistent way of achieving this goal is through customer reviews. Keep in mind, although reviews are imperative it’s important for you to understand that your client’s time is valuable and the last thing they are thinking about is the impact this will have on your business.  Most have no clue how (or where) to leave such testimonials so it’s best to develop a system that is efficient and easy… for both of you! If you follow these simple tips, obtaining reviews from your clients will be relatively painless: Streamline the process to keep it fast and simple. They don’t owe you this courtesy, so don’t make it a chore for them. Use links with few and specific instructions. Make sure the process is cell phone/tablet compatible. The entire thing should take no more than a few minutes. Try it yourself to see if it is quick and easy.  Re-do the process if it is not painless. Decide which review sites will have the biggest impact on your business. Ask for the review promptly after you have completed your service to...
