Can A Business Really Grow In Today’s Economy?

Written by Jay Abraham and republished with permission

Almost any business can achieve astonishing growth, even in the midst of a severe economic downturn like the one we face today. I’d like to show you how.

Step one: it’s vitally important to take careful stock of all the psychological and transactional changes going on in both the minds and lives of your marketplace and in the minds and lives of your competitors. Look at the attitude and actions of all your suppliers, vendors, and support services.

You’ll probably witness the following predictable reactions: your competitors are feeling battered. Their sales and marketing approaches are generating meager results. They don’t have a tried and tested plan of action. Certainly they don’t have a proactive strategy for capitalizing on all the things going awry.

Joint Venture Dealmaker

I haven’t been updating this blog for a while as I have been busy with a major shift in direction for my work. I also took some time off to smell the roses. More on the roses in another post.

Along the way, this site also got hacked and it took me a bit of effort to restore it.

Going ahead, I think the frequency of my updates will be one post every one or two months.

Anyway, just a quick update of what Jay Abraham is currently offering. In case you haven’t got his email, he’s conducting a course on doing joint ventures. The three classes via teleconference will be held over the next two weeks.

You can find out more details about the joint venture course here.

Referral System

Here’s a question from one of my readers:

I work for a driving school and i am going to start implementing Jay’s teachings

: Referral system

: Risk free guarantee

: And joint ventures

My question is this: I want to give all local business in the area postcards, that endorse us as the best driving school. And for every client we get, we will pay them �10.

The biggest problem i can see is that, business owners may feel that we will rip them off and not pay them the money. How do i get around this hurdle?

Also joint venture partners: finding people who can’t drive but want to learn is not that easy because there isn’t a list you can rent, or clubs or associations..

The only JV Partners i can think of are:

Colleges/ students- who don’t have much money

Estate agents / (Realtors)

Here’s my reply:

Given that your potential customer falls in a very targeted group, it is unclear to me how an untargeted local business would actually give out your postcards. If it’s only to a select group of their clients, will you be helping them to narrow down their list?

And getting them to endorse you as the “best” driving school might be a tall order, since you can’t really quantify that.

Instead of trying to “hit” on all local companies, you might want to narrow down to companies with clients that have a closer profile of people that you are looking for.

You also mentioned your concern about skeptical companies worrying about being paid. Most incentive based referral systems work because both parties have a prior working relationship, e.g. existing customers, etc.

As the �10 referral fee is quite low anyway, why not try this approach?

For example, you identified college students as people who might be interested to learn driving. Are there any local stores at your place that serve mainly this age group?

Approach them and tell them something along this line, “I represent a driving school and would like to give you something of value that most of your customers would find useful. At no cost to you, you can use it to enhance your relationship with your existing customers and also use it to bring in more customers.

Here’s a booklet of driving lesson coupons with values ranging from �10 to �50 that you can use for your promotions. One way of using them is to offer a �10 coupon whenever someone makes a �10 purchase.” And so on…

In this way, there’s absolutely no risk to the local business in doing a joint venture with you. To take it up even further, you can also request them to provide similar coupons to you that you can offer as bonus to the students at your driving school. In this way, you will be driving new customers to them and also giving something of value to your students.

Last point. Does your school offer refresher driving lessons or advance driving lessons (possibly with some defensive driving elements)? If there is, you can also try setting up JVs at places where people buy cars!
