Business Growth Strategies
Business growth strategies start with market insights. While research firms and strategic marketing consultants can bring these insights to bear on an ad-hoc basis, companies committed to growth will develop systems and processes to ensure a continuous flow of market insights into their business. Talk to us about taking your business to the next level.
Perhaps the most obvious source of growth or revenue maintenance is the development of new offerings to your existing customer base. Staying close to emerging customer requirements is straight-forward when there is good communication from sales and support teams. Keeping customers involved in reviewing product roadmaps and helping to prioritize features (as well as confirming value and appeal) are keys to the process.
Market Expansion Strategy
Learning how to expand your target markets – whether by customer type or geographic location – is often the linchpin for sustained growth. This requires a synchronization of operational capabilities and marketing to assure the market expansion strategy is viable and can actually be implemented. New market knowledge is critical to success, and consists of developing insights from target customers, assessing relevance and appeal versus competitive offerings, understanding the sales process and other offering delivery requirements. Maintaining clarity of the strategy just across the executive team, let alone the company, can be a huge task when the expansion strategy requires the company to reposition itself.
Market Opportunity Analysis
Related to a market expansion strategy as well as product diversification, a market opportunity analysis can be used to flesh out potential ideas. The very notion suggests that a company is more interested in a market perspective than its own often-assumptive perspective. The scope of such analysis can range from straight forward and short-term, to expansive and longer term. An initial sense of what’s at stake may call for patience in conducting the more comprehensive study.
