If you’re the number one choice in your field, then chances are you’re probably busy. You’re busy with a lot of work and there will be times when you’ll have to turn down client work.
Being the number one choice, the obvious choice in your market, is a beautiful thing. The problem is that you may not be the no.1 choice right now. But that’s okay. We all have to start somewhere. The important thing is that each day, you try harder. That’s all there is to it.
Being number two isn’t so bad either. It’s a starting point. Looking at it in another way, it’s a good place to be because it can get you to number one when you try hard enough and be smart enough with your business strategy.
So if you’re not the no.1 choice right now, what will you do in the meantime? Here are 3 good things for you to consider:
No.1: Find out your strengths and weaknesses – and compare these to your competitors. You’ll discover opportunities that you probably never thought of – and usually, you’ll come out with valuable insights you can use to make your business a lot better.
No.2: Innovate. Never stop innovating your service. Upgrade your skills. Learn new frameworks, platforms and systems. With the continuous influx of knowledge, you’ll be able to come up with a better way to do business and provide immense value to your clients.
No.3: Market strategically. There’s no point in advertising and doing outbound marketing when your marketing message sucks, when your positioning isn’t unique, when the quality of your work isn’t remarkable. Find a way to tell your story in your marketing messages – I promise you’ll get remembered more.
There you have it – 3 things you can do to climb your way to number one. It isn’t easy – but whoever said getting to and being no.1 is a walk in the park. Like all good things, you have to work your ass off to get to the top level. But when you reach it, it will be all worth it.
