Small Business Owners seldom have the time to compare their businesses with the competition. They assume they are doing a good job, but are they? In reality, most donÂt know how they might rate with an objective assessment. Empower Business Solutions has just created a Free Online Tool that allows business owners to:
Â quickly establish how they are doing
Â decide which areas of their business require priority attention.
Greg Chapman MBA, Director of Empower Business Solutions, Greg Chapman MBA PhD, explains: ÂThere are three key areas of analysis to the success of a business. At Empower, we first investigate whether the business has good marketing strategies. We then determine if it has good business systems- including people systems. And lastly, we see if the business operates strategically. Empower Business Solutions have developed a free assessment tool for business owners to use online. It only takes a few minutes, and gives immediate feedback. Ideal for the owner who has no time!Â
Empower Business Solutions online ÂBusiness MedicalÂ was designed around the three reasons for almost all business failure, namely: Inadequate Marketing and Operating Systems, Problems with Staff and the Owner acting Tactically rather than Strategically.
The Business Medical can only provide a preliminary evaluation. All of Empower Business SolutionsÂ clients go through a detailed review before a tailored program is designed for their business.
Most business owners actually already know roughly how well they will score before they undertake the assessment. But to see objective results with no punches pulled can still be a shock. Even with this information, most business owners will not act to protect their business. Empower Business Solutions has found three main reasons owners fail to act.
The first is that seeking help can be seen as an admission of failure. Business Owners are justifiably proud of their achievements and are sceptical that anyone knows as much about their business as they do. In many cases they have achieved their success in spite of gratuitous advice. However, anyone in any field of endeavour who has Âmade itÂ, will readily admit that somewhere along the line they have received advice. Empower Business Solutions provides advice over many different business sectors and therefore will see opportunities in an ownerÂs business that they canÂt see themselves. As Dr Chapman says, Âbusiness owners often know the answers, they just donÂt know the questions!Â
The second reason business owners donÂt seek advice is that it is viewed as a cost rather than an investment in their business. Good advice will pay for itself many times over and Empower Business Solutions programs are guaranteed to do just that. And thirdly, they may have had a bad experience from advice they had received previously. Dr Chapman has over 20 years of experience of actually running businesses, not just advising others how to do it.
Empower Business Solutions provides coaching and consultancy services and shows business owners how to dramatically increase their profits by utilising smart Marketing Strategies. They also show owners how to get their businesses to operate without them through Business Planning and Business Systems. These strategies have been proven repeatedly to work for companies, big and small around Australia.
Finding out how a business rates is the first step to developing a business and taking it to the next level. Empower Business SolutionsÂ Free Online ÂBusiness MedicalÂ provides that first step, as well as describing the subsequent steps to business success. This is essential information for any business owner who wishes to take advantage of the economic climate we are currently enjoying in Australia The ÂBusiness MedicalÂ is available at Empower Business Solutions website at http://www.empowersolutions.com.au.
