Small Business Failure? Nuts!

Pardon my enthusiasm, but a large part of your small business’ success is somewhere else. Namely, out among the company’s important external audiences.

Failure is Not an Option

I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that online businesses — just like brick and mortar businesses — have a very high failure rate for startups. Ever wonder why that is? There are several business consultants, success gurus, and motivational experts who can tell you. The problem is: Most of us don’t listen.

Public Relations: Antidote for Small Business Failure

When small businesses fail, the wreckage is often assigned to undercapitalization, among other mistakes. Seldom is failure attributed to a lack of effective communications that might have modified the behavior of sales prospects in a positive way, thus averting bankruptcy.

Success Through Failure Don’t Make These Mistakes

Just like any business, automation is the key and the right product is the means. I’ve been running my own businesses for 10 years now and believe me when I say that you must plan first.

Antidote For Small Business Failure

When small businesses fail, the wreckage is often assigned to undercapitalization, among other mistakes. Seldom is failure attributed to a lack of effective communications that might have modified the behavior of sales prospects in a positive way, thus averting bankruptcy.

In my view, raising money for new businesses is a skill best left to others, but smart, aggressive communications is not. As the entrepreneur, you cannot rely on your financing source to create the broad public exposure your business needs if it is to survive. Ideally from Day 1, you must take the lead in this vital effort accepting the fact that good results come only after careful planning and implementation of a realistic and workable public relations strategy.

On the far side of failure.

Failure Is Not Final

Don’t look at failure as final, it’s simply a step in the process – Try to remind yourself that your failures are rarely final as the word failure implies. Rather they are lessons to gain insight into how to do things better the next time around.
