Each month, I release several Profit Potential Audits which are interviews with smart business owners who are seeking to find areas in their businesses where they can raise their profits.
Prior to the interview, entrepreneurs complete my GROW Success Calculator which helps us identify their stage of business growth as well as potential profit areas.
In this episode, I interview Carl Richards, founder of Podcast Solutions Made Simple!
Since Carl’s vision is to grow his business into an agency model, he completed the GROW Success Calculator for a small firm, rather than the solopreneur.
We identified that Carl’s business was in the growth phase meaning:
- He is still focusing his efforts on attracting new clients
- He is still doing most of the delivery work himself
- He has very few ‘systems’ in place in his business
One of Carl’s biggest challenges is the long lead time in his sales process.
One action step that he could implement rather shortly would be to create a self-assessment or podcast-readiness audit to help increase the ‘urgency’ of starting their podcast sooner, rather than later.
1. Validation – Testing to see if you have the right offers for the right audience.
2. Growth – Focused on attracting new clients but uncertain what is the right method for you or for the prospect. Often feel like the ‘Unknown Expert’.
3. Messy Middle – Revenue and profit don’t seem to increase no matter what actions are taken; feeling like Chief Everything Officer – overwhelm and heading to burnout.
4. Scale – Revenue increases without a substantial increase in expenditures, foundations are in place, messaging is clear, and business has simplified, systematized and standardized. Become the Undeniable Authority or sought-after expert and clients come to you expecting to pay premium prices.
