Your philosophy and company values direct the way business is conducted at your firm. Your planning team charts a game plan. Your marketing efforts are directed to appeal to your target audience. And your product or service is constructed and distributed according to your well-developed strategy. But how do you know what will make your product or service sell?
Your unique product or service is the focal point of your business. But realizing your strengths and weaknesses will give you a strategic advantage and help make your business a success.
Professional sports teams identify their strengths and weaknesses while studying their opponent’s. If it works for them – why not put the same practices into effect for your own business? Study your clients and customers, yourself and your competition.
Only when you identify your strength and weaknesses, can you properly direct your product development and marketing efforts. This time taken in the planning stage will save your business a lot of wasted time and resources in the end.
Know your audience’s needs. And develop your business to suit them.
