How Can You Make Sure You Are Relevant In The Dynamic And Ever-Changing 21st Century Global Marketplace?
Making money begins with having the right philosophy, but there are other factors involved, among which are finding your market and selling them something that you believe in. One underlying principal is that we get paid for bringing value to the marketplace.
Bring Value To The Marketplace
1) The marketplace is made of people.
Focus on solving their problems and you are ahead of the game. This applies whether you are selling a product or a service, whether you are in business for yourself or you are working for a company.
2) You get paid by what you become.
In other words, be known as the person who can reduce their pain and they will come to you with their business. Why do people buy products and services in the first place? They either want to spend less effort at what they do, save time or to save money.
If you can help them improve their efficiency, be more effective, reduce their operating cost and increase their return on investment, you will be well positioned to capture their business.
Time Is More Precious Than Money
You can always make more money but you can never get more time. Whenever people buy your products or services, they need to feel that they absolutely got amazing value for their money. On top of that, your clients should also feel that their time with you was well spent.
