Seven Tenets of a Successful Business Practice

Creating a company whose history is filled with stories of speedy growth has been a businessperson’s dream for centuries. It’s the perfect basis for a rags-to-riches story, and that story has been lived happily by many people. Almost without fail in the modern era, certain tenets have described the trajectory of successful businesses. If you’re trying to create a wealth-based story in your own life, you might check to see if your company has taken the following measures.

Creating Wealth

  1. Create a unique product. Copycats create an environment in which any original idea eventually becomes commoditized. In the space of time between that occurrence and the formative idea, there are typically years of potential profitability. Extending that profitable period often requires new innovations to be added to the product design. However, this is not always the case, as a certain cola beverage manufacturer has demonstrated.
  2. Price your product or service so that a fair profit can be achieved. It’s important to create a perception that your pricing is fair. Unfair pricing, or price gouging, is completely different than brand up-selling, however. If your market is upscale, it’s essential that you price accordingly. Ensure that higher quality matches the elevated price range though, or your higher prices will backfire.

Purchasing Return Customers via Telephone Systems

  1. Online availability is as important as having something for sale in the first place. With a brick-and-mortar store, it’s easy to grab local business, especially if you’ve opened the first and only tire shop in town. But with online shopping the norm, it’s nearly impossible to grow at an expedited rate without online access to your wares, be they physical or intangible.
  2. Vertically scalable phone systems facilitate the growth of the ordering side of the business. As sales numbers increase over time – often a short period of time, depending on the industry – servicing customers becomes more involved than a mere ordering system can handle. Customers need a place to file complaints, to learn about warranty claims, and to transact other account-specific business, as well as to order more products. Using the same three line system that got your company moving along from the garage-based concept to an independent stand-alone building isn’t especially savvy if your phones are ringing off the hook frequently. Missed calls are missed opportunities.
  3. First rate customer service is now a nationally recognized entitlement. It may not be so in other countries, but in America, the vast majority of people have grown up believing that when they’re customers, they are correct. Offering service which accedes this point is essential, not only to profitability, but to longevity and survival.
  4. Standing behind your product is necessary. Whether that’s a lifetime warranty or a three year warranty, it’s essential to the recipe of first-class business practices that your company stand behind its offering 100%. Anything less creates suspicion of either a shoddy product, or bad service.
  5. Rewarding loyal customers is a practice that’s been going on for centuries. Although times may be ‘modern,’ it’s important to recognize the successful habits of the past, and to carry them through to the future. Whether it’s the occasional discount on a large order or a party invite, it’s essential to good business to create a rewarding scenario for loyal customers who return again and again. Without loyal, returning customers, even the most profitable business will wither on the vine.

These seven business tenets should form the cornerstone of your company’s policies. From newer ideas including the internet and telephone systems, to old time practices, these have proven useful in many success stories.

Learn Quick Ways To Make Money Using The Internet

If you are interested to make money online, there are quite a lot of options you can explore depending on your interests and skills.  For the most part, it is imperative to know and understand which opportunities are legitimate so as not to waste any time or money on scams or dead ends.

Here are a few legitimate quick ways to make money:

Selling Products on Ebay

What used to be a simple auction website has become a worldwide phenomenon as well as a lucrative business avenue for both sellers and buyers.  You can sell a wide range of products on Ebay, whether new or used, as long as you present them honestly as far as features and benefits are concerned.  One of the benefits of selling stuff on Ebay is that you can do so from home and during your spare time which means there is no need to give up your day job in order to pursue a good business.

Affiliate Internet Marketing

This is another very lucrative money making opportunity online that pretty much everyone can do.  Earnings are in the form of commissions so the more products you are able to sell on behalf of a business, the more money you get in return.  One of the most important things to remember about being an affiliate is that choosing the right programs and products is essential in achieving success.  In addition, you also would have to learn and master online marketing tools in order to increase sales figures and earn more money in the process.


HubPages allows you to create single pages over nearly any subject. I use as an Affiliate and choose products that Amazon offers. To make money with Hubpages, I write one page reviews over these products and place ads of these products to the corresponding Amazon page. Then Amazon pays me a commission each time someone buys something through that one page review. I have several hundred pages on HubPages that are one page reviews and they provide a nice income month after month.

Building Better Pop Up Displays

Pop up displays have always been pleasing to the eyes. Even without the vibrant graphics, the sleek and modern designs alone can catch the attention of anyone. When used in trade fairs, pop up displays are almost always the queens of the show; they are the show stoppers. However, for the exact same reasons, they can be too overpowering and the other elements of your booth get lost in the crowd. Do not worry though because there are ways to mix the modern feel of pop up displays to the classic theme of your old booth.

Before we discuss how you can come up with a display that will fit your company’s needs, you have to first know the basics of pop up displays. A pop up display can be described in two words – comfortable couture. These displays look very expensive and futuristic, and yet they are very easy to use. All you actually need to do is to prop it open when you need to use it, secure it in place and you are good to go. Also, they are very sturdy as they are made of metal and fabric; basically everything a cardboard (which is usually used in booths) is not.

Regarding our concern about pop up displays outshining the rest of your booth, there are some things that can be done about that. If you really want to incorporate a pop up display in your old booth, maybe choose a display that is not too big. By that I mean the pop up display you choose should not look like it is your entire booth. Also, use colors that are not too “in your face”; the minimalist approach works best for this. Don’t forget that what you want to happen is for your pop up display to blend with the other elements of your booth.

Apart from the color and size of your pop up display, you must also make sure that it follows the same theme as your old booth. You want everything to just flow smoothly from the old to the new such that it will appear like they are conveying the same message. If you already found a system or a strategy that works best for you, don’t mess it up and just add details that will make it perfect. But you don’t want to remain stagnant either; change is good and it shows your customers that you can keep up with the trend.

Needless to say, pop up displays are really effective as a marketing tool for your company; but the problem lies in choosing one that is appropriate. Remember that what you want to do is make sure the pop up display you choose can blend well with the rest of your booth.
