7 Tips on How to Build a Saleable Business…

Written beautifully by Kate Johansson of TheNext.com.au, based on the notes she took whilst attending the Ruby Learning Series last week, where yours truly presented. I’m very proud of the calibre of the article as it presumably means I said something worth writing about!

The top 7 tips as Kate notes them in the article are:

  1. A buyer buys PROFIT, not cash
  2. Your Client List.
  3. Believe it or not… Facebook! (= Social Media)
  4. Search Engine Optimisation
  5. IP – Intellectual Property
  6. Sustainability (Survivability)
  7. Create a business, rather than freelancing

To glean more details behind each of these points, go to http://thenext.com.au/productivity/strategy/7-tips-on-how-to-build-saleable-business/

The Next is an exclusive community for passionate Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders. The group believes in making friends not contacts, giving not taking, innovating not imitating. The aim is to motivate, educate and innovate by providing the next leaders with access to the best resources possible. You can read more on the blog here: http://thenext.com.au/blog/

Come to the next Ruby Connection Learning Series event…

Thinking of starting a business or in business and being kept awake at night worrying about cash flow and where your business is headed?

Then this half day workshop is for you!

Whatever your situation or objective, writing a business plan can make a huge difference to your chances of success. It’s like having a map of where you want to go and how you’re going to get there. This seminar will highlight the difference a business plan can make, and then show you how to develop and use your own plan to gain a real competitive advantage.

With the changing economic landscape, an Online Strategy is essential for any business new or old. Hear tips on how to develop an effective Online Strategy to ensure your online presence drives business outcomes.

You’ve heard the saying cash is king.  Lack of cash flow is one of the main reasons businesses fail.  In this session, learn some important tips that will help ensure you have a steady cashflow stream.

You’ll also hear from an inspiring business owner (that will be me in Melbourne!) and have the opportunity to network and meet like-minded women throughout the workshop.
