Looking to scale up my current business any advice?

by Jimmy Johns 7 replies
So I've been selling over facebook for countless months. I make roughly 1k per month on there but am looking to scale up big time. I sell pretty much everything from facebook likes and follows to explainer videos to done for you ebooks. How can I scale up and say make it to 5k a month? Hell even 10k a month? any suggestions on how to get these services selling like mad?

    1 possible suggestion Jimmy is to start a blog to expand your credibility.

    If you rank for keywords related to that niche - easier to do with a content-rich blog these days - you automatically expand everything, from traffic to targeted readers to income.

    Whenever I think of scaling up I dwell on the direct way to leverage the heck out of my presence. This usually involves search traffic but more than anything, it requires reaching into a new market, or few new markets, to access more folks who trust you and what you are offering. Blogging is a fab way to accomplish that end.

    Blogging is definitely not easy peasy and it would add to your workload but this usually is what scaling is about: doing uncomfortable but freeing things to help more folks and to make more money in the process.

    Happy FBing.

    Pick a specific goal. So lets say its 10k a month.
    Now pick just one of the services you do that is actually scale-able to that level.
    Stop focusing on everything else and do that one thing better than everyone else.

    Successfully scaling is always about focus and eliminating the unnecessary.

      My idea for sclaing up right now is to find a few committed sales reps either part time or full time to do what I do currently so I can scale up what I do 10x times. If you know a good site for finding full time committed sales reps let me know

    You did not say how much of your time goes into creating the deliverables.

    You did not say how much of your time goes into tinkering with your sales funnels.

    If you sold 5 times more of what you now sell, can you deliver (in a timely fashion) and handle customer care?

    If you can produce 5 times more of what you sell, you'd need to create either a new funnel or increase the results of your existing funnels. Or, like Peter said, you'd need to do some thinking, pick one, etc.

    But, to really get good answers, you'd need to provide good info.

    You can get 5 times more money if you get 5 times the traffic to a site/facebook,

    if you can get 5 times more of the existing visitors to contact you,

    if you can convince 5 times of the people who contact you to buy,

    if you can get your current visitors to spend 5 times more on you,

    a combo of the above (and, of course, if you can increase the results by 5 at each step, you'd be increasing gross income by tens of times.

    First, have you analyzed why you're not getting to $5k a month now? Is it your price point, does the audience just not exist, are you getting repeat customers like any good business should?

    Second, if you kept your business model the same as it is now, could you handle a 5x increase in activity? Do you have the logistical capacity to do it? Some businesses don't scale well, especially 1-to-1 service related models.

    If you are looking to expand, you may need to expose your services in other ways:
    • Craigslist
    • Fiverr
    • Freelancer
    • Paid ad campaigns
    • etc.
