If you want to grow a successful business, you have to know the proper steps to take and make them at the right time, and it requires optimal alignment of three key pieces – strategy, a growth system, and growth authority. By following these three steps, in the correct order, you can reach success in building your business.
The first step in building your business is critical; it’s strategy. Without developing a strategic plan for getting from point A to point B, you will wander around, wasting valuable time and energy. When you create a business strategy, you determine the steps you need to take to achieve your business goals. Strategic planning is essential to your success because it breaks your plan down into specific action steps that will lead you to success. Don’t be afraid of strategy – it can be fun, and successful execution leads to results.
To begin this process, know where you are and have a clear vision of where you want to be; then, you can develop an effective strategy to reach your goals.
Design A Growth System
Service providers, coaches, consultants – anyone in the service industry – often get caught in the trap of offering multiple services without designing a cohesive system. You can keep your business moving forward by aligning your systems with your strategies – workflows, blueprints, teams, onboarding, client services, communication, etc. When your services are scattered everywhere, it is overwhelming and keeps your business from the successful alignment that would allow you to reach your target audience. By designing a growth system, you are building an umbrella over your offer so that all your services fit in one place and make sense, bringing continuity to your offer.
Often, this is the step in building a business that many people think is optional and can be overlooked – it can’t. Do not skip this process because it seems overwhelming or something you can do without — you must have systems to grow your business effectively.
Focus on Growing Authority
To improve your expert status and become a dominant force in your industry, you must learn to establish a framework for building authority. The goal is never to be the best-kept secret; the goal is to reveal yourself as an authority and expose your brilliance to the world. I have put together a tool that allows you to evaluate the three elements of success for growing your authority. In my whitepaper, you will learn how to show up in the market right now. Whether you have a long-term brand-building plan or are just getting started, we can help you figure out how to get there quickly, so download the paper, read it, and begin implementing what you learn immediately.
If you need assistance mastering this alignment, I created a Mastermind that will provide you with the blueprints we have created and give you the pieces you need to begin aligning for success. Using what we have created, you can follow a weekly plan that will take you step by step through the process with two pieces of content and 50 touchpoints weekly.
