Business ideas to improve profit
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
