(Ways to make your business grow)
Buying Raw Materials, in Bulk
Buy the raw material, for your Business in Bulk. But in a much better way, try and produce your raw materials, yourself, if you can. This will help you gain more leverage, from the business you’re doing.
But, if you don’t have the money to be doing that yet, start by buying the raw materials from the farm or from their places of production, and not just from around you or from just any retailer whose own could be relatively, expensive.
Thus, some of us are not growing in business, because we get the resources from very expensive places, or from retailers who as well put too much profit on each unit product, thus making the business become more expensive too, from our end.
To be frank with you, buying the raw materials in bulk, is the only way you can distribute more out of what you have to get more on your profits. Moreover too, the smaller the raw-materials for the business, the lesser your profit-margin from the business you do.
So remember, get the raw materials for yourself; either you get it, from your own farm (in order to even get better leverage), or try, and get the raw materials, from well-produced places, where they have quality, and relatively lower pricings.
This will ensure, that you don’t spend too much, to acquiring raw materials, nor should the business become, too expensive for you to do, nor for others to afford. So then, it also, ensures that, the prices, of your goods and services, would not become too expensive; at the end, of production.
And by far, getting the raw materials, from production places, also, reduces all your production costs. (Sometimes, other businesses may come to you for the raw materials from you, making you become a supplier of end-products, and raw materials at the, same time. Therefore, going for the raw materials, gives you (these), two benefits as well.
Tidy up, and clean-up your business frequently.
The Purpose of tidying up a business is usually to help the business Machines last long. You cannot always be using money to buy equipment, and as well machines each and every time.
So, every now and then, you can do a tidy up of the place. Keep everything in good shape and neat after their use or else some of the machines tools and equipment may begin to rust and will soon begin to lose their effectiveness, or efficiency-affecting our businesses, in both the short and the long-run.
Yes, these would, directly, or indirectly, affect the business. So you see, dirt, sand and dust, with other waste products can enter through the machine, and could in the long or short run, affect the efficiency of your machines or equipment; making them lose value.
Remember that, dirt, sand, or dust inside the raw materials, and as well, inside your produced or finished product, could as well affect the quality nature of the product you’re giving to the public, thus, inducing loses, and will affect how much you will gain, in total.
So, this is why, the business centre, as well as the machines, or the equipment you use, must be clean well tidied up; and arranged.
So, remember, to clean them, whenever you are done, before everyone goes to his house. Yes, there must be a thorough cleaning, dusting, and wiping, after each business, operation.
Indeed, the neglect of these is one reason why many factories resources, especially in terms of machinery, tools and equipment, break down easily; and then they begin to lose so much money. (You may even find these problems, with some of the government institutions!)
In these times of ‘modern’ difficulties, we should try and do these so that we do not be losing or investing amis, into the good and creative business; but rather getting much more from every single try we do, to survive our days that are coming-says the Lord.
Price Your Goods and Services in these modern times well, to earn more
The third point, is to know how to Price Your Goods, or your business Products and Services well too-according to the Lord. I have said a lot about that here in which the Lord showed me how to Price Your Business, usually in a hard economic time.
Apart from getting the raw materials by yourself or going to the farm to get them in bulk, it is also very necessary to know how to price your goods (products) and services, so that you make much more from the business you’re doing.
In other words, don’t price your goods, and services, based on only the rich in the society, putting huge profit margins on just, a single product. So, don’t price your business, only on for the rich in your community in the economy. To get more leverage, don’t do business with the rich class only-because the population, in that margin are indeed few-a key to note.
And besides, not every rich person, will locate you to buy, from you; neither would they like to spend on buying an expensive product always-or all the time. There are still rich people who still don’t still like buying expensive products. Hence, this margin will further go down.
But, according to the Lord, you should rather, price the goods and services in a way, such that:
The average person within, your locality or the economy could afford to buy. In such a way, you’ll get more numbers, waiting for your ‘Bulk,’ products or produce. Usually, you can find that by asking yourself, ‘how much would the average person (being, the average customer) in the locality, or community or economy, which has to do with, both the rich and poor would like to actually buy it, while making sure that, it’s still going to give you your profit at the end- per each sale you make.
(In this case, you’ll get more, of a people-margin; and can even take your business to the international world, where more of a people-margin (who, do not usually earn much), may even see and buy).
(This rule, goes in-line with God’s rule, (which is The Law of Balance), which states that anything, that’s too high is bad, and that is too low, is as well bad, or too imperfect); but only those ones, that are on average, or that are on, moderate ranges, are perfect, or are right. So then, the business, should not be too high, or too low, than the average cost, per product; or all, would incur you some huge, loses.
Now, just make sure, you strike your goods and services, with quality so that both the rich and poor, would find a good reason to spend their money on your product or service, which is also not too expensive for ordinary people.
In other words, while your ‘bulk’ produce, solves, the issue of availability in business, your good-pricing control mechanism, or system, ensures that, the problem of affordability needed in your business, is also now resolved. And Quality, then controls, the skeptic minds, of customers, on whether your product, should be bought or not or would thus actually satisfy.
Thus, and in other words, these three fields in business, when controlled properly, ensures that there’re sales, no matter what. Yeah, until those three fields, are solved, you’ll not have, so much, from your business product or service.
The fourth which the Lord, had also revealed to me, was, how great, is your customer service: ‘how great you talk to them, how you receive them, too; and it boils down, to after sales, service.’ You’d have to correct all of these.
The fifth, is how neat the place is. It also, talks about, how clean or neat your product or packaging is. You must know that cleanliness, is about our health-and it’s about your customer’s health. No matter how good or quality your business product or service is, if you don’t do this it will cause, many ‘skeptics’ to turn down your offer, or your business. And even, the way your sales girl or boy dresses and also how they keep their daily composure, matters as well, in this area, which include how they talk to all their customers.
(When these are in control, you can actually, take the business, to everywhere); and you’ll succeed- because all your customers will get, satisfied-if they try, to become, skeptics!
But in all of this, don’t start a business, without ever praying-and with thanksgivings, to God!
Yes, open, a prayer-room, in your business location, and do the spiritual one too, as well-it’s called an intercessory prayer, for your business, with your team-members. In such, a modern day of the world, you don’t know what people are doing in business, besides all of the above. And you don’t even know what the near-by shop is doing. You don’t even know what, your customers may bring to your place, or shop. You must, never go, beyond these. (Satan is that smart!). If you’ve ever entered a Hindu shop, you’ll know why they pray to their gods, besides all these too. (Don’t only be interested in the Money, you must pray!, as well. Even the most biggest world-wide companies, are linked to some cults, for ‘spiritual’ assistance).
(The Lord told me that ‘these ‘formulae’ (call it a formulae if you want), can work for any business at all. Apart from individual businesses (sole-proprietorship businesses, joint venture-businesses, and all private sector-businesses, it can also work for all government businesses, as well.
Furthermore, He had also taught me how to achieve ‘quality,’ in your business products, and services; yet, I can’t talk about that now).
Therefore, having your resources in bulk will ensure that more people are also going to get your quality product, or service. Quality, controls ‘skeptics,’ and helps people to spend their money, with enough joy-on your product; and would ever keep coming back for more, since it brings upmost satisfaction.
It helps you get, or build enough good reviews, to further break-down the hard-knocks, of thousand-skeptics.
And having your price in control, will ensure that, the average customer can close his eyes to buy at a go, and much more classes of the economy, or even beyond, will find their way, to come to you, to buy.
Now, I have written extensively on this, regarding price: (How to Price your Good’s and Services, in a Hard Economic Time), which the Lord had also told me. So, you can find about that here. (It is a whole Course, we’re going to study on Edituse (God’s school for the World).
Finally, after you’ve done all these things, launch a mass campaign (or mass marketing) towards your target audience.
A target audience means, the kind of people who would love your products, or your services. (Don’t assume that everyone out there in the Markets would love your products and your services). For example, take your particular kind of food business, to the kind of markets, who love those kind of food you’ve produced. And as well, take your shoe to shoe loving people, for as you know, not many people would love to wear shoe.
Now, when you’re launching your campagin, make sure you go to the Customers; and don’t let or expect them come to you.
(This was what the Lord told me. Do a massive Evangelism toward them).
So, you would have to reach them with your products and your services and do your service for them or to give them your products. And make sure, according to what He said, you take their contacts right then, contacting them, to see whether they may have a need later on.
God bless You.
And thank you, for your time with me.
God bless your Life, your Soul, and your Businesses!
Praise be to God who has shown us this.
