Are You Using The Right Business Tools?

By · January 17, 2009 · Filed in Business Tools

The use of the right business tools are key to any business. This saves on the frustration that can come from using the wrong techniques and tools. It is also important to measure which tactics are working or not working for your business.

Here are 3 Steps to Ensure You Are Using the Right Tools:

1. Don’t Be Araid to Change Your Plan. If one plan of action isn’t working after a substantial testing period, drop that plan and pursue the plan that leads to success. Failure is just another attempt at success. The most successful people in life had a string of failures before their most successful product.

2. Get a Mentor. One of the quickest way to eliminate this trial and error process is mentorship. Why waste time and energy on a trial and error basis when you can have someone show you the most successful business tools? It’s also important to choose a mentor that can make themselves available to you on a consistent basis. This can be via email, skype, webinar but what’s most important is the consistent training to lead you in the right direction.

3. Get a Tracking System. It is also vital to use a tracking software that will show you just what ads or techniques are bringing you the most profit. I’ve talked to several business owners and I have asked them what techniques they’ve seen that has brought them the most success. I am always surprised to hear a lot of them say that they weren’t sure. It’s very important to know which tools are bringing you the most profit so you don’t waste time with those that aren’t bringing any profit.

    I enjoyed reading your blog and agree with you on those are 3 key points.
    As you have me to post my answers on your blog here they are.

    Don’t Be Afraid to Change Your Plan. People do resist change as if it’s the end of the world if they do. Have you ever read, Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson? Recommended if you’re afraid of change

    2. Get a Mentor: or a business coach. Some people are afraid that if they do, they will be seen as failures because they could not do it on their own. Who are the top 3 athletes that come to mind? What do they all have in common? Coaches/Mentors!

    3. Get a Tracking System. I preach this all the time! How can you assess your business if you don’t track where it’s coming from. If your spending $5,000 on a yellow page add and you don’t track the results. Is it paying for itself or costing you more than it’s worth. If you are a member of a networking organization like BNI, are you generating business? Who is referring you. If you don’t know, how do you know who to thank for the new business and how much business are you generating? I could go on but I’ll stop now lol.
