What to Consider Before Becoming a 21st-Century Entrepreneur.
And until you become some sort of celebrity, your business will struggle to pay you back. Until you build your reputation, you might not become the magnet for opportunities you wish. It can take years for this to happen, so we've been studying what successful people do to win and here are some of the traits required from 21st-century business persons.
BUILD A PITCH REPERTOIRE
One of the main components of your personal brand is your pitch. Because if you pitch well what you do, people will understand what problem you are solving. If you are reliable and have value to offer, people will buy you first and then you will create partnerships, attract talent and clients to buy your product.
Create a mix of compelling taglines and potent copy in a portfolio of pitches to put you ahead of the game in any conversation. Know them by heart and practice to become natural. Retaining good employees and attracting bright people will require you to use bold words of leadership to inspire them. Whereas existing clients and new buyers must listen to statements of loyalty, and how you wanted them so badly.
Your pitches should be about their pains and determine if they are fit and how they have to behave for the sake of the commercial enterprise with you. Say "Yes" always and have people line-up for your expensive restaurant, your keynote speech or the high-end electronic you are creating.
INNOVATE AND ANTICIPATE
But what else drives this phenomenon of having a higher number of buyers than what you can service?
Innovation builds anticipation and excitement, days, even months before the launch of a product. If it is new and convenient, consumers are likely to queue up. Sell at a competitive yet profitable price and then limit the offer to get people waiting for more. Expose their chase for your product and how you are solving their pains.
Once you are consolidated and in a position to have your business paying you steadily, it's time to turn your offer into recurrent revenue and create passive income.
ADHERE TO SUBSCRIPTION MODELS
Subscription businesses are designed to get the maximum number of people knocking on your door instead of limiting their offer. It's the next step after becoming in demand.
If your business is in need to chase new buyers, loop through the process of proposal, sell and delivery over and over again, you cannot oversee supplies, cash flow and profit as efficiently as subscription model businesses, and there will always be a limit on what you can manage to serve.
Recurring revenue business models are way more attractive to investors than other models. Despite the predictable churn of subscribers every month, clients will buy more and stick longer than walk-in customers.
DON'T COMPETE, CREATE A MONOPOLY
Problem-solving products and innovative ideas have a window of time to work. So what product should you build? Should you productize a service, improve the existing or conceive the original? Should you use the subscription model or the once-off style?
Regardless of how you are going to keep your pipeline flowing and your business profiting, develop a monopoly by innovating and working with micro-niches. Very successful businesses chase the monopoly because, in contrast to the competition of capitalism, that's good for the consumer, a monopoly will mean profits for you, the producer.
CREATE A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF CONTENT
The more original your product is, the better its selling proposition needs to be so you will need to master the original content related to your product.
However, crafting original content is not an easy task. Content must have quality, cause arousal, and you must address what people need, especially if you are working with a micro-niche and building your reputation as an entrepreneur.
Allowing your micro-niche to consume your content freely, subtly mentioning the value proposition of your business, it's an excellent strategy. With time, your audience will associate your company and brand with your writing, and this will involve again your personal brand playing a significant role.
