Once Upon a Time…..

ONCE UPON A TIME Pictures, Images and Photos Everyone loves a good story. It doesn’t matter if you are 4, 44 or 104. As soon as you start to hear a story you mentally snuggle down ready to listen and let your mind take you to some far off land.

 

Regardless of your business you need to be a good storyteller. You want your customers to go with you on a journey to the land where your product or service ‘saves the day’ and becomes the hero.

Staying Focussed – The Challenge of Being Your Own Boss

It has been a busy month in the Status office as we continue to establish our business. Since I last blogged on the BBN we have won our first significant contract and we have been making a lot of connections to get our name about. It’s been a great start for us and we’re beginning to see positive results from our efforts.

While getting work in and building up awareness of our business is good, Mark and I have still been mindful to remember to work on ourselves as well as bringing in new business. This past week in particular I have personally been developing my time management skills. While I have been on time management courses in the past when I was employed elsewhere, working for yourself brings new distractions into play.

Do your suppliers listen to you? Do you listen to your clients?

I have been reviewing several new cloud based services with one of my clients recently and it suddenly struck me that we are finding ourselves veering to a particular style of supplier, regardless of the product we are reviewing.  This has shown itself time and again over the last year in the choices that I have made in terms of products for myself and my clients.

The suppliers we are finding ourselves working with are generally new to the market, or at least newcomers in an established field.  This means that they still remember the importance of looking after the customer.

Yes, once again we are talking about customer service.  The reason being is that in the current climate it is more important than ever to listen to what your customers actually want, not just sell them the same old thing.
