Looking at hiring a Business Development Consultant, Revenue Specialist or Growth Specialist? Make sure you hire a person that has actually done it in the real world as an employee in Senior Management or in their own business. Do they truly understand what it takes to make those decisions? Making the wrong choices in business growth can have long lasting effects.
Remember.....Yesterday and today's plan and actions need to be different and a new change is needed to get different results for growth and development. Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. expertise involves developing marketing strategies and advertising programs, consulting on sales processes and business sustainability and training in long term planning for a profitable future. Proven track record building companies, culture, and sales teams.
A few questions to think about. What are a few things you can do to take your business to the next level? What does your business need to do to do this? Is your goal large enough? Are you taking the right steps and actions to get you closer to that target?
First we create a high level plan and then mini plans that get you closer to that ultimate goal. Your high level plan is what you vision your company to be at that larger state. We will then need to start to develop a revenue strategy with the mini-steps needed to achieve smaller goals. The trick is to be disciplined!! We are constantly bombarded with life's daily challenges and that can distract us from our strategy, pulling us away from the smaller goals. We can easily get wrapped up in doing the stuff that keeps our business alive and not focusing on development and growth. The key is knowing which smaller things can wait or not be done at all, without sacrificing customer service and revenue.
Secondly Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. looks at what you are doing now in your business. We look at your marketing, your brand, revenue, profits, staff, support staff etc. Then make the adjustments needed for scaling your business. We then look at how are you measuring these targets or rungs on the ladder? We put timelines in place and try and stick to them. Constantly bearing in mind your ultimate goal.
The Third thing is we discuss to make sure you know what you are venturing into. And start putting the plan into motion. Hiring a professional who can give you advice and will minimize your risk and capitalize on the opportunity. Sometimes the decisions that you think are harmless can sometimes have catastrophic consequences to your business.
Fourth thing is understanding that your business will evolve, this evolution will change your people's roles and responsibilities within the company. We make sure you communicate that to your employees. Because when things change, your staff's feelings can be affected. We pay attention to how the growth is affecting your company and who it is affecting internally and externally.
Going to the “next level” takes courage, risk and confidence. You, your family, your company and staff are stepping out of their comfort zone. Sometimes just getting by isn't good enough..... No risks No rewards!! You have to be confident enough to stay the course all the while making sure you are looking at market intel, opportunities and external factors. We don't only stay focused on the plan and pay attention to what is going on because we might have to change your strategy and plan. We might miss an opportunity if we are focused only on your plan and can't see the forest for the trees. The same thing applies vice-versa, we can’t be busy for the sake of being busy, and we make sure you are making progress towards the plan.
We need to know what that next step is...What is it? Is it bringing in a new product? Is it hiring a certain person in your company? Sales person, marketing person, Customer service rep, is it adding a service to your company? etc., etc., etc.... Again, always making sure we are taking the next step that gets you closer to your larger target and goal.
Finally once we reach the target/goal that you never thought you would reach.... we put a different plan or strategy in place with the same principles. We have the experience in growing start-ups and up to 100 million dollar companies. At Firebird Business Consulting Ltd. we take your business to the “Next Level”.
