Now that we’ve got your attention, we’ll level with you: none of us here at The Sherwood Group had lemonade stands when we were kids, and we don’t know of anyone who did. So. . . we’re pretty sure they’re a myth.

 

The Entrepreneurship of Lemonade Stands

That said, a lot of children run small businesses.

Kids organize syndicates of friends and siblings to do needful tasks around their neighborhoods: mowing lawns, babysitting, walking dogs, selling donuts. If you and your elementary school friends were entrepreneurs, then don’t worry: everything you need to know about running a business, you learned in kindergarten and grade school.

1. Identify a need.

First, think about how businesses like that begin. If it snows where a kid’s from, then the kids notice that people hate getting out into the cold and shoveling their driveways. If there are a lot of busy professionals in the area, then the kids start by thinking about the children and pets who need to be taken care of. A kid understands that people need a service that he or sheo can provide, and being a little capitalist, a kid understands that he or she can make money off of that need.

2. Advertise.

Even then, of course, some businesses succeed where others fail. The successful ones are the ones that build a professional network. They identify potential clients, usually neighbors, and advertise aggressively, often until they stop getting invited over. They build up a base of clients who trust them, which grows by word of mouth. They know other small business owners who occasionally put work their way, and collaborate on large projects.

3. Allocate revenues.

At the end of the day, they negotiate a price. Fortunately, overhead for such ventures is low. Most of the money can go toward salaries – and, ultimately, toward that new computer game the CEO has had his eye on.

A little more than half of the population of the Earth is female, yet only a little more than 14 percent of top executives are female. With a world of statistics against them, these inspirational women are models of global leadership. Taken as a whole, they embody an archetype of business inspiration that would benefit any gender:

 

5 Inspirational Women in Business

The Achiever

Listed as the 30th largest business in America by Forbes, Amway’s success in the United States rests largely on the shoulders of its regional president, Candace Matthews. Before Amway, she served as a marketing leader at SoftSheen for L’Oréal. With a MBA from Stanford, Matthews has been recognized numerous times in the industry, not the least of which is the 2009 Black Enterprise Magazine’s Corporate Executive of the Year. Matthews is known for her dual role as a driven leader and caring mentor. In an article for the Huffington Post, she attributes her determination to her parents and mentors, recommending to young women in business to find an honest mentor of their own.

The Money Maker

Although money is not everything, it is a good indicator of reputation. This puts Marissa Mayer at the head of the pack. The Yahoo! CEO is listed by CNBC as the highest paid female executive. After being hired from Google, Mayer has increased Yahoo!’s stock by 177 percent and its earnings by $9.5 billion. With Mayer there is no magic secret. She is successful because she is smart, driven and passionate, refusing to be made into a stereotype.

The Entrepreneur

Listed as the youngest self-made female billionaire in America by Inc.com, Sara Blakely embodies the American dream. The founder of Spanx, Blakely sees mistakes as being just as important as success. She coaches young entrepreneurs of either gender to be unafraid of making mistakes. She says that the worst case scenario is that you become memorable. Now at the age of 44, Forbes places her net worth at $1.06 billion, which most would consider quite memorable.

The Rags to Riches Story

With only a few dollars in her pocket, Indra Nooyi came to the United States from India to earn a management degree. According to Real Business, she worked as a receptionist during the graveyard shift so she could buy her first business suit for an interview. Her hard work paid off, as Nooyi sits as the CEO of PepsiCo. Her advice to women in the workplace is simple: work twice as hard as your male, and any, counterparts.

The World Changer

Women in leadership roles have the ability to change the world’s beliefs. Global Vice-Chair of Public Policy at EY Beth Brooke-Marciniak understands this better than most. Named as one of the “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women” seven times by Forbes, Brooke-Marciniak is a leader in diversity advocacy. Not only has she changed her own world, but she is committed to ushering in a new world of equality for everyone. Of the female business leader archetype, Brooke-Marciniak is the soul, calling for men and women to work together to eliminate workplace bias. Like many visionaries, she is calling for change now, not in some far-off future. She is looking toward a time when 50 percent of the population holds 50 percent of the leadership jobs.

People are still a little mystified by how well blogging can work. So, whether you’re new to blogging or a veteran blogger, here’s how you can use this online tool to enhance your business:

 

Avoid Keyword Stuffing and Provide Useful Information on Your Blog

When Twitter was introduced, people thought that tweeting would soon replace blogging.  After all, the modern consumer has a short attention span, right?  So they’re likely to prefer snippets of information that come in 140 characters as opposed to a typical blog of 250-300 words.  Still, blogs seem to be gaining in popularity rather than losing ground.  It’s not as though Twitter doesn’t have its market, it does.  It’s just that there’s a market for blogs out there as well.

If you’re wondering how to effectively use blogging to enhance your business, here are a few tips, including why you should avoid keyword stuffing:

Avoid Keyword Stuffing

Search engines don’t allow you to indulge in “keyword stuffing” anymore i.e., using the same keyword over and over again in the course of an article just to drive traffic to your site. In fact, websites that continue to do this are now penalized and will show up much later in searches.

Use the Right Keywords and Use Them Well

Just because you’re suppose to avoid keyword stuffing doesn’t mean that you can’t use keywords at all on your website. You can continue to use them 3-4 times in a 3-400 word article or blog post. Your keywords should be simple ones that people will look for when they’re searching for information on a particular topic. For example, common real estate keywords are “real estate,” “house,” “home,” “apartment,” “mortgage,” “rent” etc.

The Internet as a Source of Information

Keep in mind that most people look on the internet for information. For example, if you’ve just started looking for an apartment to rent, you’ll probably look on the internet for tips on how to go about the process, especially if this is the first time you’re renting. You might like tips about finding an apartment, negotiating the rent, managing your finances, decorating your apartment etc.

Giving Your Customers the Information They Need

So the best thing for you to do, as a small business owner, is to think from the point of view of your consumer. What kind of information do you think would appeal to them? What would you have liked to know when you were first looking for an apartment? Then try to write helpful blog posts about those things. Not only will this draw customers, it will also help you to become a thought leader in your field in the long run.

Do you love a good success story? We do too, but we also love using sarcasm to make a serious point. So, without further ado, please enjoy these 8 surefire ways to kill your business.

 

8 Surefire Ways to Kill Your Business

1. Wear rose-colored glasses. There’s a certain way the world should work, so demand that it works that way, and disregard anyone or anything that does not abide by your rules. Ignore criticism, because your critics don’t understand the way the world works either. Trust everyone at their word. No one is untrustworthy behind rose-colored glasses.

2. Slow down and take as much time as you need to make decisions. Be courteous to a fault, and offer second- and third-chances to your suppliers. Nice guys finish last, but at least they finish, right?

3. Do not accept a middle ground between business success and personal fulfillment – never the twain shall meet. Either work yourself into an early grave as a rich man, or as an enlightened business failure.

4. Don’t worry about financial management or accounting. You can pay professionals to take care of your books. They’ll tell you if there’s a problem with cash flow. Or better yet…

5. Be a lone wolf. It’s your business, therefore, you can do it all. Be the accountant, the lawyer, and the salesman. The business can’t really be worth it if you can’t take credit for everything, right?

6. The customer is always right. Yes, they are. Especially the ones who don’t understand what you’re selling. They’re the ones you need to focus all of your attention on.

7. Share your competitive advantage. This can be easily accomplished by avoiding non-disclosure agreements and bragging on social media.

8. Develop a mission statement, then disregard it. In fact, forget every reason you ever had to go into business in the first place. Or, forget about missions and goals altogether, and fly by the seat of your pants. You’ll be able to eliminate your planning department.

Running a terrible marketing campaign is pretty simple. Of course, running a great one doesn’t require much more effort. At the end of the day, you decide whether you’ll learn from the mistakes of others or make the same mistakes all over again.

 

How to Make Sure Your Marketing Fails

There are tons of foolish mistakes you can make to assure your marketing fails. Nokia, McDonalds, Microsoft, Samsung, and even Susan G. Komen have made a wealth of horrific mistakes they needed to recover from, and if you want to experience the same flops as these major companies, these are the mistakes you’ll likely make:

1. Hire All The Wrong People

If you’re trying to run a successful marketing strategy, who should you hire? There are experts on marketing, social media, and outreach waiting to get involved with your job. You can even outsource this work to private firms for an excellent job that doesn’t require hiring permanent staff for that purpose. If you’re really interested in messing things up, you’ll just pass the marketing duties on to other employees and hope that one of them figures out what they’ll doing. You can even take on the burden yourself, and try to juggle marketing along with all of your responsibilities.

2. Have No Direction At All

What are you trying to accomplish through marketing? Do you have a new product or service? Is there an area where you really outshine your competitors? Instead of emphasizing the important parts of what you’re trying to sell, just share funny memes. Samsung used a popular meme character, colloquially known as The Overly Obsessed Girlfriend, to promote a product. What was that product? Nobody knows. The ad never really explained it. They just spent a bunch of money on a humor spot and expected people to understand there was some kind of product involved.

3. Severely Mismanage Your Social Media

Social media is an amazing outreach tool, and is a mainstay of super effective marketing. It’s a way you can share images, videos, and testimonials of the things you’re promoting. It also opens up the content for questions, allowing you an opportunity to provide excellent customer service that will boost your reputation. Alternatively, you can post personal or irrelevant information through your social media, or mindlessly share things that you find interesting. It’s okay, maybe the right people will stumble upon your product without being prompted. Or maybe they’ll never know what exactly it is you do. Either way, right?

4. Copy Everyone Else

Wow, that marketing campaign worked out amazingly for your competitor. They really tried their best to set themselves apart, and used every opportunity they could to showcase their strengths. They shared the things that were unique to them, and that’s what drew in a much larger customer base. If you copy the exact same thing they did, shouldn’t that work for you? After all, you’re showcasing how unique you are by duplicating the way someone else was unique. That can happen, or you can make yourself seem completely indistinguishable from your already-more-successful competitor. Whichever!

5. Skip Branding Entirely

Statements about things that are important always seem worth sharing. If you run a private internet security firm, creating an infographic about what services like yours do for people is an excellent testimonial to how valuable your work is. Just make sure your leave your logo, statement, links, and information off of that infographic. You wouldn’t want anyone to accidentally stumble upon your business, would you?

It can be hard to start and grow a business. Many people give up before they even get started. It takes dedication, motivation, and a lot of hard work to grow AND invigorate your business. However, it IS possible with the right attitude and enough will to succeed.

 

Four Tips To Invigorate Your Business

Here are 4 tips to help you to grow a successful business:

  • Dream big (or small). Think about where you want your business to be in a year, two years, and even five years. Are you still going to want to be running it all by yourself? Are you going to want to be able to hire a full-time employee?
  • Set short-term and long-term goals. Once you have dreamed about how big you want your business to be, it is time to make goals for yourself. Set some that are easy to reach and some that feel a little out of reach. Then, write down steps to help you achieve those goals.
  • Don’t give up. Many people give up before they even get started. You need to remember that it takes time to start and grow a business. It takes time to get a profit. If you don’t persevere, you don’t achieve greatness in your business.
  • Get help. Just because you started a business does not mean that you have to do it by yourself. Maybe you want to focus all of your energy on your
    business so you should hire someone to help with your housework so you have more time to devote to your business. Maybe you hate the paperwork part of your business so it would be a wise idea to hire someone to help with that.
  • Have a professional website designer refresh your site. If your website is even just a few years old, especially if it isn’t responsive (meaning it automatically resizes for smart phones and tablets for easy viewing and readability), it may be time to give your website a face lift. Many professional designers know how to create a modern looking site, AND how to help you convert the visitors you DO get into customers and clients!

Starting a business can be tough, no matter who you are. You need to dream big so you know where you want your business to be in a few years. You should also think long-term and include where you want to be in five years. Then, set goals to help you reach your goals and dreams. But be prepared to work hard for your business and don’t give up!

According to Forrester Research, the next generation customers want more than just a great deal, they want the ability to break down barriers between consumer and business for a more transparent transaction.

 

Next Generation Customers: Does Your Business Appeal to Them?

That transparency can lead to a more authentic relationship with consumers and help turn them into loyal fans. Business trends in 2015 have indeed focused on more proactive engagement with chat, offers, and content delivered at the right time in a customer’s pre-purchase journey. Here’s a look at how to gear up for next generation customers and succeed:

Embrace extreme personalization

Demanding extreme personalization goes beyond getting on the phone and calling a customer by name. Today’s customers want omnichannel, self-service channels. Voice is still a top priority, but chat and email also rank on the list. Providing that technology is only part of the equation.

The other part to the equation is making the consumer experience consistent across all channels whether on the phone or chat. Customers want to pick up where they left off when switching channels without having to start over from scratch. Providing that type of consistency and service is not often something a company can put together on its own and expect efficiency and a seamless experience. Instead, employ a dedicated cloud contact center like Aspect to simplify the experience with inbound, outbound and multi-channel capabilities.

Get ready to pivot

Are you ready to abandon everything you know about customer service and pivot? The next generation customer isn’t shy about taking to social media to post a litany of complaints and grievances about your brand. Instead of ignoring it, taking a week to respond or sugar coating it with a PR campaign, get to the root of the issue. Publicly resolve the problem as quickly as possible, take accountability and turn the experience into a positive one. You can turn a seething customer into a brand advocate just by acknowledging the issue and resolving it thoroughly and on a human level.

Listen closely and respond

Do you know what your customers are actually saying about you? A survey might tell you what customers want, or possibly when they’re upset, but it won’t capture the nuances of what’s going on in their day-to-day conversation. Listen closely on social media and relevant online platforms to find out what your customers are saying. Join the conversation without sounding like you’re reading from a script and put a personal touch to their experience with you. Staying on the pulse of a conversation can help drive awareness and sales without spending additional marketing and advertising dollars.

Give customers more control

Whether you’re selling furniture or utilities, customers want to be in more control over their experience. Research from Opower’s Consumer Insights team discovered that four in five customers want billing alerts from their utilities and billing is the primary driver behind call center calls. By giving the consumer more resources like automatic billing, text reminders or automatic payments, customer retention can soar while poor experiences and feedback wanes.
