Why “Problem | Solution” Strategy is the Key to Your Business’s Success

What problem does your product solve? Many business owners don’t have an answer to this question. And unfortunately, this is one of the reasons why failure rates are so high for new businesses. Here’s why.  The Problem and Solution Buyers make purchase decisions based on their need to resolve specific problems.  They scan the marketplace in search of businesses that offer clear solutions to help them overcome their obstacles – and achieve success.  If your business wasn’t built with using this strategy, connecting with buyers and generating sales is nearly impossible.

Why did some people say “yes!” to your offer, but others declined? The truth is, it can be difficult to put ourselves in our customer’s shoes.  But here’s the good news.

Stop Chasing Leads and Let Your Funnel do the Heavy Lifting For You

Every business owner should have a proven system that converts leads into loyal buyers. A healthy sales funnel delivers three critical things: enough leads, quality leads, and consistent leads.

They are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference between the two. A “funnel” refers to an automated digital marketing funnel that brings leads into your business and converts them over time. A “pipeline” focuses on the actions you take to move prospects through their customer journey in order to make a purchase.

Jeani Ringkob here. I wanted to talk to you about an example of how Fix This Next worked for a client of mine.

And if you think about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, it completely makes sense. The sales is the air our business needs. You really get into the other things up here, legacy, creating continuity and the ability to actually let your business move on beyond you, really doesn’t […]
