How successful has your business been over time?
Unless you are a brand new company or have not been around all that long, your business has a track record. The hope is that the record is one you can be happy with and you continue to see progress.
So, is your company’s success something you can be proud of and you continue to strive to make it even better.
Don’t Take Success for Granted Now and Down the Road
In assessing the business model you’ve come up with, is it one that can sustain you for the long haul?
When you look at MVP building, you want a minimum viable product. That is one to have consumers talking about your brand. Having such a product available to them fast and one that serves a purpose is something you must focus on. In a competitive business world, how is your model going to differentiate from others?
As key as your product or products prove to be, do not sleep on the customer service approach to doing business.
Imagine for a second or two if your customer service was mediocre at best. Do you think many customers would stand for such a thing? Odds are a fair number of them would take their dollars elsewhere. If that occurs, your sales and revenue numbers can plummet in no time at all.
So, along with what product you put forth for folks, always make service a prime focus of your business model.
Unless the situation is you are the company’s only employee, you also need to look at how good of a job your employees do.
Keep in mind that your employees more times than not are one of the first impressions folks have of your brand. As such, it is important that they give off a good impression and not want to push away customers.
Have you done a good job with your model in bringing in top-notch talent to man various positions?
Sure, most company owners make a bad hire or two at times. It comes with the territory and is all but unavoidable.
That said, you want to do all you can to make one good hire after another. Those hiring decisions you make can go a long way in deciding your company’s ability to succeed for the long haul.
Also look at what you have to offer employees in return.
Do you provide a good working structure so that most of if not all your workers want to be with you for many years to come?
The right incentives can go a long way in creating stability with your model and mean more success.
Finally, always look at how you can go about improving your model and what it will take to do such.
If you stand pat and do not change with the times, it can be problematic for your business as time goes by.
In doing all you can to come up with and grow the perfect business model for you, is success a foregone conclusion?
