You need to create a clear message for your potential customers on what your company and personal brand are about. You need to find your unique selling proposition and communicate it through various brand messages; social media, your website, and business literature. This challenging task will bring in a lot of results, as you can reach people who can emotionally connect with the uniqueness of your business.

Mission and Vision

No matter how big or small your business is, you will have to create a mission and vision statement. If you can communicate your values and give your prospective buyers a good enough reason to buy from you, your job will get much easier. List the things you care about and are passionate about, and your long term goals. Put it in a few sentences, and display it on your site, social media pages, as well as your business communication and internal branding materials for employees.

Market Penetration

You will also have to make a decision about how you will enter the market. For this, you will have to create an analysis. Check out the competition, the threats, the availability of substitute products and services, as well as the price competition before you develop a market entry strategy.

When you start off, you often find yourself facing small business marketing challenges. To overcome these, you will need to identify the things that are holding you back. If you are just doing some marketing here and then, and have no strategy, you might be feeling like you are shooting in the dark. Find a way to stand out from the competition, do your research, and get help with developing a marketing funnel that will automatically turn your visitors to leads and leads to customers.

Outsourcing vs. Solopreneur

If you would like to improve your business, you will need to decide whether or not you will be able to cope with the workload. If you find yourself doing your accounts and creating content at 10 p.m., chances are that you will need help. Accept your limitations and you can find new ways to scale your business.

People often find it hard to make important business decisions that will have a huge impact on the future of their business. If you are struggling with strategy and identifying your strengths and weknesses, take a step back and focus on what’s holding you back from success.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
