Busi­ness ideas to im­prove profit

Waihi Leader - - News -

Profit strate­gist and busi­ness men­tor Gra­ham Hawkes ad­dressed the Septem­ber meet­ing of the Waihi Busi­ness Break­fast Net­work group.

Gra­ham en­cour­aged the busi­ness own­ers at­tend­ing to look at how they could get lever­age from their present cus­tomer base to ex­pand their busi­nesses. Al­most ev­ery day, he says he sees op­por­tu­ni­ties for bet­ter sales per­for­mance wasted.

“There are many strate­gies which cost very lit­tle and can have a ma­jor ef­fect on sales per­for­mance and prof­itabil­ity,” said Gra­ham. “The ideas I have given you to­day if im­ple­mented in full, could in­crease your sales by as much as eight times, but re­al­is­ti­cally not all of them will ap­peal, and you may only be able to try one or two of them. Even do­ing that you could eas­ily dou­ble your turnover.”

One thing Gra­ham guar­an­teed was that if his au­di­ence didn’t try any of the ideas he of­fered, they will never work.

As well as ser­vic­ing the im­me­di­ate Waihi area, Gra­ham has clients in Hamil­ton, Thames, Katikati, Tau­ranga, Pauanui and Auck­land. He can be con­tacted in Waihi on 07 280 3509 or through his web­site www.your­sound­ing­board.co.nz
