How to turn an X-Box into $12,000

Posted by Jason On June 14th

Like many of you I have found myself, on occasion, struggling to motivate my employees to sell a little more and do a little more in their work day. A few years ago I took on a new approach to generating some suggestive sales with my window cleaning business and I was blown away by the results.

How to NOT fall off the curb

Posted by Jason On April 5th

As you know from reading my blog, when I read a great story, or something I feel rings true or  just makes good sense,  I like to re-post it on my blog.

A good friend of mine Curt shares his perspective on fear and what he did to overcome it.

Do you remember when you were a little kid, riding your bike all over town? I sure do.

I remember when my bicycle was my key to freedom. I used it to escape the constant hostage of Saturday chores. In fact, sometimes I finished my homework before the sun went down I would sometimes just ride around until I couldn’t see the street anymore because of how dark it was.

Marketing Tip – Pass more referrals

Posted by Jason On February 12th

Did you ever notice how, no matter where you go, there is always at least one person who knows everyone in town and knows exactly what they do? You know who I’m talking about…  that one person that comes to mind when you need to find someone to fix that leaky toilet or when the roof needs repairing. They’re just the person to call when the sprinkler system breaks down or when your pool water turns green. They’re the person whose number is always handy the inevitable need for an accountant or lawyer arises. They’re valuable because they can guide us when we’re lost and don’t know where to turn.

We all need them and we all love them. And guess what, it’s no mistake that this person knows everyone in town. Because it’s most likely from years of networking and getting to know people on a personal level that they have this endless rolodex of useful contacts and connections. Read the rest of this entry »

Small Business Tip – Little gestures go a long way

Posted by Jason On September 23rd

I’ve come to understand that one of the most important things we, as business owners, can do is maintain our current customer base. Every time I come across an exceptionally successful business person I take the time to ask them what their “Key” to success is. I want to know what they continue to do on a regular basis to stay on TOP of their game. Almost every time they say something like; “Jason, if you take care of the clients, the money comes on its own.”

Sadly, I realize that so many people miss that business lesson in a big way. So often I see and hear about companies taking their current customers for granted and later missing out on repeat business and referrals. Read the rest of this entry »

Small Business Tip – Better deal or better price?

Posted by Jason On September 16th

How many times have you heard a prospect utter those dreaded words “Can you give me a better deal? The other quote I had was cheaper”. Or how about the “What’s your lowest price?” line, that always puts a smile on my face! Or not!

Don't be the low price guy!

In the last few years I guarantee you’ve heard it more times than you care to count or remember. Am I right? Now a day’s everyone is trying to save a buck and cut corners, understandably so, but this can’t be good for everyone’s business. Read the rest of this entry »

As business owners we often find ourselves wearing many hats during our daily routine. We might spend some time dealing with a disgruntled employee or discussing our latest accounts receivables with the bookkeeper. Sometimes it’s going over our spending budget or planning next quarter’s sales goals, whatever the case may be we certainly have our hands full.

I know that you at times, much like me, feel overwhelmed and don’t need another thing added to your ever growing “To Do” list. However, I recently learned that I was overlooking a very important part of my business – The Follow Up Phone Call. Read the rest of this entry »

I don’t know about you, but in the last few years my inbox has been inundated with unwanted and impersonal e-mails that somehow miss my spam box. Sometimes it feels like I spend hours just clicking the delete button instead of working on something productive. Most of these emails lack creativity and excitement as they make an effort to invite me to buy this or try that, others explaining why they’re the best… you name it, my inbox has seen it.

If you have ever done any form of mass mailing e-mail marketing then you most likely already know that the hardest thing to accomplish is to get the recipient to actually open the e-mail, right? Read the rest of this entry »
