Why the four step strategy to success?
I created the four step strategy due to my own experience as a start-up sole trader.
Twelve years ago, with two young children, I gave up full time work in accounting to start up a bookkeeping business. I printed up business cards and placed ads in the local papers, but never found enough clients. Fortunately I had a husband bringing in an income. Within a year I returned to full-time work.
Later I found out some horrific statistics:
The Australian Bureau of Statistics state that up to 60% of small businesses fail in the first three years, and 1 in 3 small businesses fold within the first year.
This statistic set me on the path to become a small business marketer. The plan? The Four step strategy for success.
So you ask, what are the four steps to business marketing success and how can I narrow it down to only four?
There are many more elements to ensure any business succeeds. The four steps I am providing ensure that a business will have the right image, tools, mindset and marketing.
