In this series of six presentations, Dennis will teach chamber members some of the business strategies he uses with clients, that when success-fully applied, can result in tremendous revenue growth. As a business owner, are you familiar with the 80/20 rule? For business owners, it means that 20% of what you do every day is generating 80% of your total annual revenue. In other words, you’re only doing a few things daily that makes you most of your money. There are 5 areas that make up that 20%... leads, conversions, transactions, pricing and profits. These are the topics that Dennis will be focusing on during the six-presentation series. He will also lead business owners in a live, profit acceleration exercise so they can see first-hand the power of the 80/20 rule in action.
The real key to success in marketing is to offer more value than your competition. Prospects will pay twice the price if they believe they're receiving four times more value. Unfortunately, most businesses… in a vain attempt to increase their value… begin to offer discounts, and that often destroys their margins. Did you know if some businesses discount their price by a mere 10% they now have to sell 50% more just to break even? Join us to learn how to avoid this common pitfall using a bundling strategy.
