  • Start a Business
  • Open a New Branch

The truth is if you wait for a good time it is always going to be next week or next month.  There is only one good time and ....... that Time is Now.

 

How Millionaires Do It

Many years ago I observed a lot of millionaires, asked a lot of questions and made a significant discovery.

 Every Millionaire I spoke to said that the best time to do anything is NOW.  They don't hang around pondering things for months.  They decide what they want to achieve, plan carefully and quickly execute their plans.

Is Networking a Worthwhile Marketing Strategy?

Figures_colored_teamwork_pass_puzzle_piece_300_clr_9681If Networking Works For YOU .. Go For It

The problem is most people define networking as going to a physical networking event.  It's usually a Breakfast Networking event or an After Hours Networking event or, worse still in terms of the time it takes, a Networking lunch.

I think this is far too narrow a definition of networking.

 

I think networking is about the exchange of information or services between individuals, groups, or institutions.  More specifically it is about the cultivation of productive relationships that lead to things like employment or business.  It needn't take place at a networking event.

 

 

Why Conventional Networking Often Fails

 

Here are some of my reasons why networking events often fail.

Are Your Customers Mind Readers?

Stick_figure_thinking_cap_300_clr_10194Do Your Customers Know About All Your Products or Services?

The easiest sale you'll probably ever make is to an existing customer.  They already know you, , they know your values and they know what you sell.

 

Or do they?

 

Can you honestly say all your customers have a good idea of all the services or products you sell?  If they do then you are truly exceptional, because customers not knowing anything about what you offer beyond what they recently bought is very common.  In fact it is the norm.

What our customers say

What Our Clients Say

As Principal I employed very few consultants but did employ Stefan on the basis of a clear ROI.

I would recommend him to any college, university, business or Government agency as a reliable consultant who will become indispensable.

Ioan Morgan CBE
Latterly FE College Principal & CEO,

He certainly does what he says on the tin...... I've worked with Stefan for many years and he has an uncanny knack of cutting through the ****, focussing on the essentials and coming up with creative and inexpensive marketing ideas that work.

David Morphew

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Stefan was an expert on one of our recent teleseminars speaking about Marketing Secrets Revealed. He gave some fantastic value and gave some great tips that small business owners could use to apply to their businesses straight away. You can get a copy of the recording at http://www.exceptionalthinking.co.uk/previewcall.htm. I have no hesitation recommending Stefan and think he's great at marketing. It's certainly no accident that he's known as the Marketing Magician.

Helen Dowling

“Stefan was our speaker at a memorable CIM course recruitment event a few years ago. In an hour he covered a wide range of EMarketing topics giving the audience both inspiration and actions they could take with them to implement immediately. Even those that had recently completed marketing degrees commented how practical his advice was and how it clarified what they had previously only learnt in an academic way. Stefan's practical background as a marketing practitioner comes to the fore when he explains, not only what EMarketing is, but how to implement it in a practical way where the ROI can be measured.”.

Rosie Phipps, Principal, Oxford College of Marketing

“Apart from being a incredibly friendly and approachable person, Stefan has a wealth of knowledge in how to effectively market small and large businesses and has applied this knowledge with great success. In short Stefan is a real marketing guru!.

Steve Tipson

““Stefan Drew is a true marketing professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Stefan's marketing expertise. My first contact with Stefan was in 2009. The distance of our office locations (U.K. vs. Australia) did not concern me as it was evident from our first international phone call that my company was in good hands. 2010 presented the GFC which brought with it many marketing & financial challenges. By following Stefan's marketing plan to the letter I could never have imagined such a successful outcome for my business. Thank you Stefan.”.
