The ultimate goal for every business, obviously, is to be successful and make money.
To create that success, there are three crucial questions that every business owner must ask every day. These three questions will help you optimize your business performance and ensure that you are taking the right actions to increase profits and decrease overhead costs.
The first question you should ask yourself is: How do I generate more profits per sale?
It sounds like a simple question, but there are many ways to answer it. When looking at obtaining more profit per sale, we are talking about optimizing each sale. Logically, the more profits you acquire per sale, the higher your revenues will be.
There are numerous ways that you could go about this. You could:
Raise your prices.
Decrease your costs.
Do both of the above.
Bundle your products, combining separate components, and thereby creating a new composite offering of higher value, which commands a higher price.
Unbundle your products, so you can charge for each separately, and grow your profits that way.
