Businesses enter this phase when the owners no longer need to look over their shoulders all the time. This is an exciting time. The business is not just surviving, it is growing, sometimes exponentially.

However, the business owners don’t feel that they are in control. Their results are erratic. It can be great one month then lousy the next.

They know the business of basics that no degree will prepare you for. But now they are impatient. The owners ask:

  • How can we control our growth?
  • How can we receive a predictable level of enquiries and sales?
  • How can I make my business more efficient so things don’t take so much effort?

At this stage of a business’ life, the owner understands not everyone can be their customer. And even more importantly, they don’t want everyone to be their customer! But, how to choose? The answer is to have a Marketing System- not just ads that get the phone to ring.

Owners are now starting to look at how they can improve the operational aspects of their business. In the past this was not an issue, as they weren’t that busy with customers. But it is an issue now!

The business is growing quickly, even if somewhat erratically.

Year on year, business is good, although there seem little consistency and predictability of profit. Marketing efforts may produce good results, but are volatile. What is missing is a systematic approach to producing and managing sales.
