For distributors and manufacturers looking to increase dealer network sales in 2012, this post will give you five easy ways to get rolling.
New Year’s Success Tip #1: Take Baby Steps
So many businesses start off the New Year with grand plans only to get stuck in the mud. If you want to avoid this, take small baby steps toward your goal. It may not seem like a lot, but if you take small steps throughout the year, you’re more likely to reach your goal.
New Year’s Success Tip #2: Focus on the Present
Don’t get too caught up thinking about the success and failures of 2011. Learn from your experiences and move on. If you spend too much time thinking about the past, you’ll never achieve success in the future.
New Year’s Success Tip #3: Create Concrete Goals
When you map out your goals for 2012, you want them to be concrete. Set goals with actual numbers. The more specific you are … the better. If one of your goals is to find new channel partners, then aim for a specific number of new channel partners.
New Year’s Success Tip #4: Pay Attention to Data
It’s quite possible some of your business endeavors may fail this year. If the happens, don’t chalk it up to lack of effort or some abstract reason. Look at the raw data and find out the true reason you failed. During success, also look at the data to see why you succeed.
New Year’s Success Tip #5: Stay Focused
Don’t take your eye of the prize in 2012. Many companies fail because they lose sight of what is important. They spread their resources thin and nothing gets accomplished. Don’t let this be you!
