How is THAT possible?

How is it possible that smack in the middle of a booming economy and a raging stock market that 93% of the advisors we recently surveyed said they want, or NEED, to make more money?

 

Wouldn’t you think that of all problems you could have right now, money would NOT be one of them?

 

Here are few key questions to consider as you prepare for 2018:

 

  1. If you exclude asset growth, would your revenue in 2017 have grown, shrunk or stayed the same?
  2. What would the consequences be for your business and your personal life if, or when, the market corrects 10 – 20%?
  3. How many new clients did you sign in 2017? Are you happy with that number?
  4. How recently did you sign your last new client? More than a month ago?
  5. How many IDEAL Clients did you sign in 2017? When was the last one?

 

If you are anything other than ecstatic with your answers to all of these questions, what you need for 2018 is a better plan. A good place to start is to register right now for Bill Bachrach’s Dec. 14 “How to Make 2018 Your Best Year Ever” web class by going to http://insurancewebx.com/tips-to-make-2018-your-best-year-ever.

 

If you’re not crushing it in this environment… what are you going to do if when it turns bad or returns to “normal?”

How to Improve an Already Successful Business

You already have a successful business and you have good repeat clients and word-of-mouth clients. You are successful at making a profit. Have you ever thought of improving your already successful business so that you can be number one or in the top 10 or 20 firms in your niche? There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your business strategies in order to have your already successful business even more successful.

 

The 80/20 Rule

The 80/20 rule in marketing puts into motion that 80% of your profits are coming from 20% of your products or services. With your top products or services being the focal point of your sales and profits, how can you make these products or services even better? So, how do you make them stand out more than they are? Take into consideration what is making you the most sales is what people are looking for most. You have created something that is in demand. So how do you create even more demand for it?

 

Start Focusing

Start to focus on these successful products or services that are making your business successful and start improving on them. Ask your clients for feedback on your website: Is there anything that we can do better and improve upon?   What is it that you like about our product or service? Did you choose us over someone else? If so, what did you like better? Clients love to give feedback, and whether it is good or bad feedback from your clients it is an important part of your business success. You want to keep your clients coming back and you want them to tell their friends about how wonderful your products or services are. People like the personalized interaction. Offer to include them in a drawing for a prize for their feedback (for example, an iPad, tablet, etc.).

 

If your top sellers are different than the other products or services are, why not focus on that certain niche? By focusing more on what the best sales items are you will increase your profits. Add more products or services that support the top sellers or improve on them.

 

Believe in Yourself and Set Goals

Your clients certainly believe in you and your company so why don’t you believe in yourself even more? We all know that by believing in yourself you are more self-confident and self-reliant. When you are confident with what you are doing you are going to be successful in what ever goals you want to achieve.

 

Goal setting should be taken in baby steps. Short term goals turn into long term goals. You already had goals set when you started your business and what you need to do now is upgrade those goals for a more successful business. Write down your new goals on how you are going to improve your business and outline how you are going to go about reaching those goals. Goals need to be modified from time to time to ensure your business grows successfully and doesn’t just stay stagnant. Ideally, you would create a business plan with key business metrics that you execute every year – all year long.

 

Balancing Work and Home

When you are a business owner it can be difficult to find an equal balance between home life with your family and life with your business. You don’t want to end up spending more time at work than at home as this will put more unwanted stress on your life. Stress can negatively impact your work and your home life. Stress causes mistakes, lack in productivity, and can even ruin your business reputation.

 

You don’t want to be married to your work, you want to be married to your wife or husband. As a business owner your family is the most important part of your business as they are part of your support group.  

 

Make sure you always take the time for your family and friends. This not only strengthens your family bonds and affirmations, it also helps you find that balance between work and home life that will make you an even more productive business owner. When you are happy at home and happy at your business, you will be able to achieve your goals quicker and more efficiently.

 

Remember, believe in yourself, believe in your product or service, believe in you team, make goals that are attainable, and balance your home and work life. Following theses simple steps will turn your already successful business into an even more successful business so you can be even happier than you are today.

“Stop trying to be different.” says Bill Bachrach

Bill recently wrote the following and I think it certainly gives you something to think about….

 

How often have you heard the advice that in order to be successful you have to be different? You have to stand out from the crowd, right?

 

At the recent FA Magazine Inside Retirement Conference, Gail Graham, the highly respected industry marketing expert from Fidelity and United Capital, described FA websites as the “sea of sameness.” Every advisor claims to be different because they have a better process, provide better service, and cares more. By trying to be different you all look the same.

 

Perhaps being different is the wrong goal.

 

Bruce Springsteen, the long-time Rock-and-Roll Hall-of-Famer and hit record-maker puts it this way, “More than rich. More than famous. More than even being happy. I wanted to be GREAT.”

 

Did Steve Jobs inspire his team and the world by saying, “At Apple we want to make products that are different?” Of course not!! Jobs, and the products his team designed, are renowned for being “insanely GREAT.”

 

Have you ever heard a superstar athlete talk about how they want to be different? Nope. They profess their desire to be one of the best who ever played the game.

 

Mohammad Ali didn’t shout, “I am the most different!” No, no, no! “I am the GREATEST.”

 

Being “different” is not a goal. It’s a by-product of a bigger goal.

 

You don’t want to be a different FA. You want to be a GREAT FA. Since most FAs have made a conscious decision to under-serve their clients and not be great, by being great you will be different.

 

What do you think about this?

Business Opportunity Planner Worksheet – SAMPLE – Free Download

When working with business professionals, I find that they sometimes need to have a good idea of where they are at against their goals so they know if they are on track or off track. If they are off track, they have to figure out ways to fill the gap so they achieve their goals. In an effort to help them stay focused on what they need to do to ensure they are in the highest probability position to achieve their goals – or even exceed them – I created the Business Opportunity Planner Worksheet. This spreadsheet can easily be modified to fit your industry and how you track opportunities.

The Values Clarification Exercise for Even Greater Success – Free 6-page Document Download

InfoGraphic-ValuesClarificationExercise-Download-SampleDefine Core Values to Align Successful Behavior and Goals

In order to successfully apply the principles and systems to help you experience even greater success, it is vital that you first identify your values so you can then create behaviors that support your values. When there is conflict or a discrepancy between your values and behavior or goals, success is impossible. Your values are basically the “why” behind your goals.

 

Values, Goals, and Behaviors must all be focused in the same direction for successful goal achievement, and when any one of them is out of alignment with the other, you will find yourself spinning your wheels. Your values will lead you in one direction, while your behavior leads you in a completely different direction, never allowing for your energies to complement each other. Download and complete this exercise to help you align your goals and behavior with your values so that everything is heading in the same direction. When goals and behavior are aligned with core values, you have the winning formula for success.
