Go International Without Leaving Your Office
Ok, this one is dependant on your current niche. If by chance you do have even the smallest amount of overseas clients, why not expand without actually expanding?
The concept behind this is pretty simple. Firstly you make a few small purchases. One of these being an international virtual address and the other being a VOIP line. A virtual address is an address that exists, you just rent the use of it for digital purposes.
A VOIP is an internet-based phone line, better known as voice over IP. This is controlled online and you can use international numbers and have them divert to a dedicated line in the office, or even more convenient, you can have them diverted to an existing line.
This step alone will give your company the image of international status and you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own desk
Look The Part
This is something that has come hand in hand with success, the image of success. It was Austin Kleon that said, “You have to dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” This has never been truer than now.
With the age we live in having the right image not only for your business but for the faces behind the business is essential in building your company's reputation. Whether you drive around in luxurious cars with a private registration plate or you may just need a few custom made suits. Either way, your image is going to be another front end advertisement for your business.
Do What The Others Don’t
Finally, you should know your enemy. Knowing your competitors inside out is one sure-fire way to get you to the top.
Once you know what you are up against, you can start offering a customer guarantee that you can realistically stand by. You can have an advertising campaign that stands out and isn’t the same old thing everybody else is doing.
To successfully stand out against your competitors you not only need to do what they do, you need to do it better and you also need to do more.
Another key to success is outstanding customer service, having support for before, during and after is what the consumer really wants.
Adding this to the few tips above is a sure-fire way to get you started in boosting your business to the next level. After all your business could be one of the next great empires.
