Vital Aspects Of Business Everyone Ignores

November 11, 2017 1:31 pm

With so much advice on how to succeed in the business world, you might be forgiven for thinking that there is no stone unturned when it comes guidance. However, there still seems to be some aspects of being in business that are given more attention than others. Something that means vital elements of a successful business model can be ignored. To prevent this happening in your company, read on to find out which aspects are regularly ignored and how to deal with them in a more constructive way.

Client Relationships

It seems as if businesses spend a fortune on selling techniques training, neuro-linguistic programming courses, and clever way to get customers to click the buy now button. However one of the most essential and basic aspects of any sale is the account manager – customer relationship.

In fact, get this right, and there is almost nothing that can’t be repaired if it goes wrong. However, if this vital dynamic isn’t up to par you can have the best deals in the world and still find your clients going elsewhere to fulfil their companies needs.

Professional and personable is really the key here. Share when prompted but don’t use your client as a therapist. However, if they chose to sound off at you might be better off listening and making soothing noises, as this can help you build up a closer working relationship. One that could be profitable in the future.

Packaging

Something else in Business that it is all too easy to gloss over is the importance of getting the packaging of your product right. In fact, packing is a vital part of the marketing strategy you put in place to sell your product.

Good packaging needs to show off the item to its best advantage, appeal to your customer demographic, and increasingly be convenient to ship directly to individual customers. Packing also needs to be able to protect the product in transit, as well as being eco-friendly. Something that means consulting with a packaging manufacturer that can provide bespoke, recycled boxes and packets is an always a good idea. Remember though, if you do use recycled and eco-friendly packing as a business be sure to let your clients know about it, as it can really help raise their opinion of you. Something that can give you the edge over other competitors in the market.

Management  

Another vital, if not the most important aspect of Business that often doesn’t get the attention it deserves is management. Everyone needs to be managed unless you are the very top of the tree. Unfortunately, though, management positions can be handed out for all the wrong reasons, such as longevity, or as a reward for doing a different role well. The thing is just because you can successfully do a job, does not make you qualified to manage everyone else in that role.

Providing training on management skills are too frequently ignored in business.

What makes you qualified to be a manager is management experience. Where this isn’t possible, at least equip new managers with training that allows them to access some management techniques. Then they will have tools at their disposal that means they can make decisions that benefit the company, rather than leaving all the people under them at the mercy of their personal whims. Something that is never good for business!
