What Makes Your Business Tick?
We are in the middle of the summer movie season and the film industry has a certain way of doing business. They build their industry around what is called tent poles films. If everything else fails the profit that these movies bring in will keep the massive studios going. They are The Avengers, Spiderman, Men in Black, Batman and the Pixar films. These tent pole movies are their go to products.
What are your tent pole items? What are your go to products? What makes your online store tick? What keeps your online business afloat even when everything else is going bad?
Burger King has its Whopper and MacDonald’s has its french fries. Your business has it’s what?
Do you make most of your money from Ebay or Amazon and you just throw a bunch of stuff up for sale and hope for the best or do you go with a plan. I would suggest that if you want to support your family you come up with a plan and find a go to item. Your circus is coming to town and what is the one-act that you know will make the audience scream and gasp? What can you count on?
If you do not have that go to item where can you go to get it?
That is mostly up to you. I have some resources that I use. Some that work for me, but I can only suggest things. You will have to decide for yourself.
If you need help I would suggest business and or trade magazines. Yeah, actual magazines still exist and in this area they can be very useful. You can read about resources and find out about new developments in your niche. Below is a banner for a service where you can order some free business magazines. Sounds like a waste of time? Two years ago I was sitting in a doctor’s office and I picked up a beat up copy of a website magazine. Two years later I have two websites and seven blogs of my own. I wish that someone had told me about websites and the power of SEO years ago. What I am trying to say is that you will never know until you try it what resource will be the right one for you.
Okay that is it for today. Remember to stumble us on stumbleupon, recommend this site to a friend and try something new for your business. If not each day then at least one new thing a week.
