Being really good at what you do as a business is no guarantee of success

60% of new businesses fail within the first three years.

(Derived data from Office of National Statistics)
You may produce the best products or deliver market beating services, but if your business processes are ill conceived, then the business will underperform, or even fail.

The common reasons for business failure

1 Your business lacks potential customer awareness

  • Your potential customers don’t know about you
  • They don’t understand what you do
  • They don’t understand why they should be dealing with you
  • You can’t persuade them to buy from you.

2 Your business lacks leadership

  • Poor or mis-guided assessment of the market
  • Over-reliance on an individual(s)
  • Poor recruitment
  • Business lacks management structure
  • Roles are ill-defined
  • Internal communication/process is poor
  • Lack of direction
  • Production and shipping processes in-efficient
  • Unaware of external factors affecting trade

3 Your business lacks financial management

  • Ill-conceived pricing model
  • Lack of clarity on revenue
  • Lack of clarity on profit
  • Blurred understanding of true costs
  • Vague or unrealistic forecasting
  • Lack of financing, financing options, finance awareness
  • Poor buying skills.

Any issue in any category above will mean that your business is failing.

The Solution = Strategy Development & Implementation

Business Strategy

"I’ve met lots of budding entrepreneurs and business owners when delivering workshops and seminars who have said to me, “I don’t need a business plan, it’s all in my head.” This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Get it down on paper, show it to people you trust, garner opinion…you will be surprised how useful it can be. It doesn’t need to be a huge tome, short statements and bullets are fine.

And remember, if you need any sort of funding, the finance houses will insist upon it."

A meaningful well thought out business plan is probably the most important process for any business to develop, large or small. When created with realism it will deliver the answers to the problems of a business start-up or growing a business.

This should not be underestimated.

If your business is established, you should re-assess the plan on a quarterly basis at least. This will address factors including:

  • Present position and performance
  • Possibilities for growth
  • Sales & marketing needs
  • Innovation and investment for growth
  • People, structure and management systems
  • Financial management and business systems
This will identify the needs and necessary actions together with the responsibilities, resources, milestones, and targets for measuring success (KPI’s).
Barnaby Smith, managing director of Mediafleet Ltd says,

"We’ve been working with Rob for over three years now. Initially Rob really helped us focus on what we really did well as a business…our ‘critical success factors’ as Rob would describe it. He planned how we could get that message over to our target audience and helped us deliver it.

The business has gone from strength to strength.

Rob now acts as our Head of Development helping us to develop our brand identity in order to differentiate ourselves in our competitive market.

At the time of writing, due to Covid, the market we operate has declined by over 20%, however, this year will be our most successful year to date!

I would not hesitate to recommend Rob and the PVS team for all your business development needs."
