Last week I told you about www.sustainableroutes.co.uk a site which offers small businesses a grant of £1,000 (matched funded) to help with reducing travel and therefore costs to the environment.
Well this week I wanted to let you know that you can get 50% funding for our Business Growth Training (The Business Accelerator Programme)
So if you want a £1,000 grant to help you to grow your business, call me on 0118 930 5700.

If I gave you two options:
The first option was to give you £1,000,000 today
The second option was to give you a penny today and then double that penny every day for a month (31 days).
Which option would you take?
On Day 28 that magical doubling penny would be worth £1,342,177.28.
On Day 31 would be worth £10,737,418.24.

I always find it strange when I do sales training and I ask sales people – what is the number one reason that they lose a sale? They say it is price. When I ask the same sales people if they have bought the cheapest shirt, soes, car, laptop, or just about anything else, they say no! So when they are selling it is about price, when they are buying it is never about price. Mmmmm I wonder!!!
The fact is ‘price is only a factor’. The other fact is ‘if you can offer a premium priced service, at a premium price, then some people will buy it. But the key is value.
The question is – What could you package together and offer at a premium rate to your market?
