This means decisions have to be made.

  • Get current customers to buy more often
  • Get new customers
  • Develop a new product or service

It is worthwhile to list all the options up front because it helps the decision making process with other steps.

What resources does your business have?

One you look at the options and have done some analysis you need to see if you have the resources available to pursue one of the options.

For example if you see an opportunity to develop a new product or service, then this will take more time and money versus getting customers to buy more of your range.

By answering this question allows you to start eliminating those that will take more resources than you have available.

What is the timeline?

The timeline for your business growth opportunity will help you eliminate ones that do not fit.

If you are looking for extra growth in the next few months then selecting one that takes a year is not an option. For example, normally it takes longer to get new customers than it would to get customers to buy more often.

Taking into account the timeline will also help you get into action and not procrastinate.

There are other considerations, however looking at these will simplify the process and help grow your business.

Being proactive with elimination helps you get focus to gain additional revenue.

Over to you: do you use elimination to identify ways to get growth for your business? What other considerations would you add to the three above?
