Scott’s Insights




Many entrepreneurs and small business owners today are looking for the magic bullet to help them grow their business. The reality is, in most cases, there is no such thing as a magic bullet. There are however, proven, tried and true, techniques and strategies that can help virtually any business grow their business with little or no effort. It all starts working from three foundational principles which are WIIFT, What’s in it for them?

The fact is that people do business with those they know, like, and trust. And the realization that customers take action when they’re ready not when you, the vendor is ready. So, let’s take a minute and explore each one of these and help you understand why these are such foundational principles to growing your business and more importantly your revenues!

Before we get into the foundational principles let me set another concept in place for you. Many if not most entrepreneurs and small business owners hamper their own efforts by making the entire presentation process and sales process way too hard! How can I say that? Easy! Years of experience of watching and working with entrepreneurs and small business owners doing that exact thing over and over and over again. So, what does it really come down to you ask?

It’s four simple words. Identify – Problem – Provide – Solution! So, if you first have to identify the problem, whose problem, is it? Well, it’s the customers… Thank you Captain Obvious! This is why the first foundational principle is the first foundational principle.
