Building profits through strong relationships
Aberle Enterprises is all about the information you as a small-business owner and managers need to develop a profitable business with sufficient sales from repeat customers to help level out the boom and bust cycles common to all businesses to a greater or lesser degree. The overriding goal of the Aberle Enterprise’s blogs is to help you find the time and the peace of mind to enjoy a lifestyle as well as your business. The way to do this is to develop a profitable business based on strong relationships with your customers and employees that produces sustainable and continuing profits.
When you truly caring about your customers first, you’ll help them come to know like and trust you, which enables them to actually want a long-term relationship as your customers because they know you care about them. Likewise, when you have strong relationships with your employees, you’ll help them reach their personal goals as they help you reach your business goals.
There are four major aspects of a business that you as a small-business owner or manager need to understand so as to provide the proper guidance and make the best decisions in order for your business to thrive. These categories are as follow:
- Business financial systems
- Sales and marketing systems
- Organizational systems
- Operational systems
Operational systems are unique to specific industries; sometimes they’re not unique to specific sub niches within industry. These are the areas where you probably already excel. They’re also the areas that Aberle Enterprises will have little or nothing to offer you.
At present Aberle Enterprises has three blogs and a fourth one planned, as shown in the following diagram:
- Aberle Consulting provides consulting, coaching, and training services on sales and marketing, financial control systems, and organizational structures and systems for small business owners and managers.
- Help Customers Buy provides sales and marketing training focused on skills, knowledge and techniques to Help Customers Buy. This is a heart centered, service oriented approach that some call soft sell. It is definitely proactive sales, not a passive approach.
- How to Make a Profit helps you understand how to make a profit by managing your business to actively produce a pre-designed or pre-engineered profit. You will find articles and recommendations that explain business accounting terms from a small business owner or manager’s viewpoint instead of from an accountant’s.
Note: AberleEnterprises.com is part of my organizational chart as I drew it up on August 15, 2010. It puts my blogging and websites into more of a business mindset which has been my purpose all along. This particular site, AberleEnterprises.com, is my hub for the business. From it, you can go to various other training programs, teleseminars, and physical conferences, some of which are my products and others which I recommend; for most of them, we will be affiliates.
To understand more about how I saw our three main sites, please read “Three Heart centered Sales and Marketing Sites.” I had not published How to Make a Profit yet.
