15 Minutes To Action - Build Your Sales Process

The key to building and scaling successfully is to structure your business around systems, processes and predictability, and one of the most valuable ones you can build is sales. How can you make sure you’re converting strangers to clients every time? In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, Nick talks you through the importance of having a sales process, and how you can build one from scratch. KEY TAKEAWAYS A sales process are the steps you need in your business whereby you take a stranger and turn them into a customer. The more that you can iterate and improve it, the more revenue you’ll make. It has to be customer-centric. This isn’t about you. It’s about your target audience. What are their needs, and how best can you solve them? Being likeable and competent, and displaying your capacity for empathy, are the cornerstones of building trust and faith between you and your client. Elegant closing is an art form. If you’ve done the work, put in the time, and built the rapport, as well as demonstrated how you can solve your customer’s problem, then closing becomes merely an invitation instead of a hard sell. BEST MOMENTS ‘One of the definitions of scale-up is how you build teams and bring processes into your business’ ‘It’s not about the people you have - it’s about the process’ ‘Lots of business gets done between people who like each other - it’s as simple as that’ ‘Closing is really about asking for the yes' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up Your Business – scaleup.vip/podcast Join the free Scale Up Your Business community:scaleup.vip/community Take the Six Peaks of Value Creation Scorecard, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/sixpeaks ABOUT THE HOST My name is Nick Bradley.

15 Minutes To Action - 5 Proven Ways To Increase Value

In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, Nick talks you through five proven ways in which you can add value by growing your revenue and accelerating your profits by focusing on pricing and leveraging. KEY TAKEAWAYS Growing your business and scaling it successfully is just as much about your mind-set as it is about your skill-set. It is about who you become as a leader. We often find ourselves suffering from impostor syndrome when it comes to clients, but a great way to grow is to play on a bigger pitch. Don’t be afraid to increase your price. If you’re pitching and getting a yes too quickly, then it’s likely that you’re far too cheap. Never undervalue yourself. It’s far easier to retain a client that’s happy, than it is find a new client. Look at the ways in which you can increase your client’s happiness, and make yourself invaluable. BEST MOMENTS ‘A lot of business growth is about who you become as the leader’ ’Sometimes we play too small’ ‘It’s the identity of who we...

A Masterclass In Generating Leads Through LinkedIn - with Matt Clark

In this very special episode, Nick is joined by Matt Clark, founder of The Virtual Edge, and the architect of the ground-breaking “Rainmaker” system, for a masterclass discussion on generating leads using the power of LinkedIn, and the strategies you need to consider in order to scale your business. KEY TAKEAWAYS Context and positioning are key. The mistake that people make is that they lack focus. By accurately targeting your ideal customer, your hit rate will increase. Connection messages should always lay out your intentions clearly. Tell new connections the reason for your interest, and be honest about what you can offer. We should always value our time above all things. Never undersell yourself, and remember that your time is worth something. Conversion is driven mainly by the product-fit itself and the process involved. Leads are easy to obtain, but connections and conversions are entirely different. It is here where the value is found. BEST MOMENTS ‘LinkedIn is a platform that you must master’ ‘I got on there and I realised that I could virtually knock doors’ ‘We have a super-secret formula. It’s called “Ask them what they want and then give it to them”' ‘I’m a major believer in “process”' ‘Connections are not leads' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up Your Business – scaleup.vip/podcast Join the free Scale Up Your Business community:scaleup.vip/community Generate 20 New Leads in 20 Days - download your free 5-step guide to put in place my top-performing customer creation strategies:scaleup.vip/20leads Matt Clark LinkedIn -https://www.linkedin.com/in/mattclarksa/?originalSubdomain=za The Virtual Edge -https://thevirtualedge.com/about-us/ ABOUT THE HOST My name is Nick Bradley.

15 Minutes To Action - The Principles Of Success

In this week’s 15 Minutes To Action, Nick covers the three things you need in order to achieve success in business, or indeed life, when it comes to any goal, and the practical ways in which you can implement them immediately! KEY TAKEAWAYS You need to have a clear goal. The more unclear and ambiguous your goal is, the less likely you are to achieve it. A specific plan is crucial in order to achieve your goal. Be as precise as possible. The more detail you have, the easier it will be to stick to. Discipline will allow you to invest time the time, energy and effort into making your journey towards success possible. Success is never really about our education levels, or the experience we have. It is always about how we think about ourselves. BEST MOMENTS ‘Clarity is a super power!’ ‘You need the discipline required to make that goal happen’ ‘Repetition leads to mastery’ ’Anyone who thinks that the adventure is something they’ve done themselves - they’re very misguided' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up Your Business – scaleup.vip/podcast Join the free Scale Up Your Business community:scaleup.vip/community Generate 20 New Leads in 20 Days - download your free 5-step guide to put in place my top-performing customer creation strategies:scaleup.vip/20leads ABOUT THE HOST My name is Nick Bradley.

How To Grow Your Socials And Increase Sales - with Travis Huff, CEO of Real-Time Outsource

Growing your social media reach is one of the most powerful ways to reach your audience, and increase sales! In this episode, Nick talks to Travis Huff, the founder of Real-Time Outsource, about the best way to get results through social media growth, how to wield this phenomenal tool to transform your own empire, and why storytelling should be at the core of your strategy. KEY TAKEAWAYS Social algorithms reward consistency, variety of content, content that forces users to remain on the platform, and ultimately content that encourages engagement and motivation. Businesses today must not focus purely on one outreach program. They must embrace all disciplines, such as social channels and email, establishing reputation, and making sure they add value from the outset. Storytelling is incredibly powerful, and will help to draw in your audience. People love humour, and they love the sense of connection formed when you express your personality. New platforms have a greater potential in terms of turning your content into viral hits. This is because engagement relies on users, and not on advertising. When monetisation begins, engagement usually withers. BEST MOMENTS ’Take the phone out - start telling the story - beyond that, start being funny!' ‘People are holding on to their money right now - banks aren’t making money on late fees’ ’The more value you add, and the bigger the vision, then there is that return that comes from that’ ’Never give up folks!

15 Minutes To Action - Get Disciplined

There are two types of pain in life - the pain of discipline and pain of regret. In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, discipline is the focus, with Nick explaining why although we may find it hard to talk ourselves into better habits now, the rewards down the line will be far greater if we do. KEY TAKEAWAYS Discipline is a short-term pain. Overcoming something difficult now is something we have to talk ourselves into. But it is far better to battle that reluctance now. You may not see the results of your business efforts right now, but it is the discipline that will keep you on that pathway. We should base our disciplines around clarity, goal-setting, managing your time effectively, courage and energy. Disciplining practices into our daily routines force those practices to become habits. Once they become habits, the need for discipline dissipates. BEST MOMENTS ‘Having mentors in life is absolutely one of the secrets of success’ ‘Discipline weighs ounces, while regret weighs tons’ ‘How you do anything in life is how you do everything in life’ ‘How disciplined you are makes the difference between someone who has high amounts of success versus people who don’t' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up Your Business – scaleup.vip/podcast Join the free Scale Up Your Business community:scaleup.vip/community Generate 20 New Leads in 20 Days - download your free 5-step guide to put in place my top-performing customer creation strategies:scaleup.vip/20leads ABOUT THE HOST My name is Nick Bradley.

Chris discusses the transition from sports to business, and the lessons he transferred from the former that have helped him to shoot to success. KEY TAKEAWAYS A work ethic is a vital component in teaching discipline, value and responsibility. By instilling this as early as possible, we maximise out potential for each day. Identifying a need is crucial in developing an idea to take to market. Focus on the needs around you and identify the gap in the market that isn’t serving those needs. Marketing is an art. Having a large audience isn’t a guarantee of business success. Reaching your customers is...

15 Minutes To Action - Preparing Your Business For Sale

In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’ episode, Nick talks you through the process of getting your business ready for sale, and how to achieve “exit readiness”. It’s all about preparation, and in this show, Nick talks you through the best ways of maximising your company’s value along the way. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you want to achieve something amazing, then it’s always preceded by a period of preparation that can sometimes seem unexciting. But it’s absolutely necessary. Always keep your focus on maximising your business’s value. If the long term aim is to sell and exit, then write that into your DNA from the beginning. In the run up to selling your business, allow yourself a period of triage, during which you can optimise it for sale. Generally this period should last between six and eighteen months. Optimisation for sale should always leave a little breathing room for new investors to take it forward. There should always be some potential for development, that new hands can exp...

How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy - with Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg

This week, Nick is joined by Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg, the co-authors of ‘Game Changer: How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy’, a work designed to help you "identify, attract, vet, employ, manage, and retain—or become—the game-changing talent that will make a difference in the work world of tomorrow”. Now more than ever, there has never been a more important time to refine the talent we acquire, and to become the valuable talent that others hope to attract. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you are determined enough to succeed and play the long game in any kind of business, then eventually things will lean into your favour, and allow you to be a force for good in your sector. It is not enough for a person to simply add value in terms of revenue. To truly integrate, they must also seek to align with a company’s values. 10x’ers always work best when they are not treated as a simple cog in the machinery. Leaders must strive to treat their organisations as human beings in order to genera...

15 Minutes To Action - Get Disciplined

There are two types of pain in life - the pain of discipline and pain of regret. In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, discipline is the focus, with Nick explaining why although we may find it hard to talk ourselves into better habits now, the rewards down the line will be far greater if we do. KEY TAKEAWAYS Discipline is a short-term pain. Overcoming something difficult now is something we have to talk ourselves into. But it is far better to battle that reluctance now. You may not see the results of your business efforts right now, but it is the discipline that will keep you on that pathway. We should base our disciplines around clarity, goal-setting, managing your time effectively, courage and energy. Disciplining practices into our daily routines force those practices to become habits. Once they become habits, the need for discipline dissipates. BEST MOMENTS ‘Having mentors in life is absolutely one of the secrets of success’ ‘Discipline weighs ounces, while regret weighs tons’ ‘How you do anything in life is how you do everything in life’ ‘How disciplined you are makes the difference between someone who has high amounts of success versus people who don’t' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up Your Business – scaleup.vip/podcast Join the free Scale Up Your Business community:scaleup.vip/community Generate 20 New Leads in 20 Days - download your free 5-step guide to put in place my top-performing customer creation strategies:scaleup.vip/20leads ABOUT THE HOST My name is Nick Bradley.

From Professional Athlete To Successful Entrepreneur - with Chris Gronkowski - Founder Of Ice Shaker

Chris discusses the transition from sports to business, and the lessons he transferred from the former that have helped him to shoot to success. KEY TAKEAWAYS A work ethic is a vital component in teaching discipline, value and responsibility. By instilling this as early as possible, we maximise out potential for each day. Identifying a need is crucial in developing an idea to take to market. Focus on the needs around you and identify the gap in the market that isn’t serving those needs. Marketing is an art.

15 Minutes To Action - Preparing Your Business For Sale

In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’ episode, Nick talks you through the process of getting your business ready for sale, and how to achieve “exit readiness”. It’s all about preparation, and in this show, Nick talks you through the best ways of maximising your company’s value along the way. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you want to achieve something amazing, then it’s always preceded by a period of preparation that can sometimes seem unexciting. But it’s absolutely necessary. Always keep your focus on maximising your business’s value. If the long term aim is to sell and exit, then write that into your DNA from the beginning. In the run up to selling your business, allow yourself a period of triage, during which you can optimise it for sale. Generally this period should last between six and eighteen months. Optimisation for sale should always leave a little breathing room for new investors to take it forward. There should always be some potential for development, that new hands can exp...

How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy - with Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg

This week, Nick is joined by Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg, the co-authors of ‘Game Changer: How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy’, a work designed to help you "identify, attract, vet, employ, manage, and retain—or become—the game-changing talent that will make a difference in the work world of tomorrow”. Now more than ever, there has never been a more important time to refine the talent we acquire, and to become the valuable talent that others hope to attract. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you are determined enough to succeed and play the long game in any kind of business, then eventually things will lean into your favour, and allow you to be a force for good in your sector. It is not enough for a person to simply add value in terms of revenue. To truly integrate, they must also seek to align with a company’s values. 10x’ers always work best when they are not treated as a simple cog in the machinery. Leaders must strive to treat their organisations as human beings in order to genera...
