Oftentimes, businesswomen confuse sales with marketing and think that the two are interchangeable.  However, they are quite different, but dependent upon one another.  Marketing is the system of attracting individuals to your products and/or services through the use of advertisement, social media, landing pages, word-of-mouth and many other strategies. Sales is the process of converting a lead into a customer.  If the prospect purchases your products/services, you have effectively closed the sale. However, remember that sales can only occur after marketing has taken place.  This can include not only all of the marketing you did to generate leads, but follow up and actually talking with or presenting to your prospects as well.

Seven Ways to Grow Your Business

by Trina Newby, Your Success Coach!

Needless to say, managing and operating a small business can be quite challenging at times.  Each year we set new goals of how much revenue we would like to see in our business, how many customers we would like to have and how we will market.  These are just some of the common goals that mostly all small business owners set for the new year.  However, growing a business is more than just setting goals; it’s also about evaluating your business and researching your industry, as well as determining what you need to change from a personal development perspective to move your business to the next level.  Once you have determined where you can make improvements or add new strategies then you must have the skills and know-how to implement them.

Getting Clear On Your Business Priorities

by Trina Newby

Let's face it, many businesswomen live a multi-tasking life and being able to juggle things at a moment's notice has its advantages and disadvantages.  Let's take running a business for example:  If you're a solo-entrepreneur one disadvantage is that you have to manage and complete lots of tasks if you don't have the budget to contract others to help you and for most businesswomen this is the case. 

Day-to-day tasks can include handling correspondence, making prospect calls, marketing the business, bookkeeping, closing the sales and oh yes, providing the service or processing the product order.  What's a businesswoman to do when handling all of this?  Well the answer is not an easy one, but an advantage point is being clear on your business priorities.

I believe the process of questioning is one of the greatest skills a business woman can have when it comes to staying in touch with how your business is performing and how you are doing as the CEO of your company.  Asking yourself the right questions and finding solutions and answers to them will not only help you to stay on the road of being real with yourself, but it will also help you to see the necessary changes that need to be made for business growth.

Business Survival
In A Challenged Economy!

Most businesswomen have concerns about the declining economy and how it will impact their business. Many have already seen a decrease or drastic decline in sales. However, it is these challenging times that businesswomen must learn to deal with and “tough it out.”

No Failures

I Don't Believe In Failures

by Ponn Sabra

I prefer to call the challenges, obstacles, side-tracks, and barriers that prevent me from reaching my goals as “unfavorable outcomes”. If you put Merriam-Webster definition [i] of failure “as the lack of success” into perspective, remembering that “success is a journey and NOT a destination”, then you too will be able to accept and embrace unfavorable outcomes in life rather than demise failures.  If God grants me more, than I’ll be able to give more of myself to others—and that’s pretty darn peachy!
