What Kind Of Business Pain Do You Solve?

For years we talked about our Skills. We said “I have negotiation skills, administrative skills and strategic skills.” We claimed a whole bunch of skills, but what are skills, really? Who can say whether you have those skills? When someone tells me s/he has great Negotiation Skills, I immediately wonder whether the person I’m talking with negotiated peace accords between warring nations or got the coffee vendor to throw in a few extra creamers with the coffee order. Skills are amorphous, and even if you possess a certain skill, do you know when and how to use it? That is the question.

How to grow your company’s brand

More than product or services - brand is a key factor that determines your relationship with new and existing clients and your ability to bring in new business. Your company’s image to the public holds a strong correlation with your new sales and repeat business opportunities. The tricky thing about brand is that it is not as straight forward as other more tangible assets of your business. Products and services, for example, can be evaluated based on an objective set of criteria relating to the net value they provide to customers, and their effectiveness at achieving your customers’ needs.

Here are a few ways to grow your company’s brand. 1. Fol…
