As the Gavin Preston team sat down for their months review, they had good news to share with Jane and George…
“You’ve done it!
I’ve just finished the numbers and I’m delighted to tell you your business has not only grown, it’s doubled since we started to work together.
AND it’s only taken you 11 months!”
You should have seen the look on their faces (and mine to be honest).
The sheer delight and sense of pride was palpable!
Yet, it all started less than a year before, when an overworked and frankly demoralised couple called me to ask for help.
Jane and George had taken over a business his mother had set up 20 years previously and in the two years they’d been running it, they’d hit absolute rock bottom.
The poor things were working six days a week (starting at 3 am and often only finishing at gone 9 at night).
The staff were demotivated and obstructive, with very low morale.
Customers were continually complaining and causing trouble.
The business was barely breaking even. In fact, it lost money almost every month.
George was particularly worried about Jane.
She had dark grey bags beneath her eyes, was utterly exhausted from months of struggle and disappointment. She was completely worn out and it was beginning to affect hear health.
George wasn’t much better, though together they just soldiered on.
Together, they had a dream.
They knew deep in their hearts their business had potential. If only they could take the right actions to bring it out.
They wanted to create employment opportunities for local people – as the business was in a close-knit rural area.
They had great products and they wanted to exploit its WOW factor.
They desperately wanted to give their children a great start in life and provide them with the best education possible.
What’s more, they had total clarity on what they wanted to achieve.
Over the next few months we devised a thorough plan of how we could overhaul staff issues, streamline production and sales, boost customer satisfaction to create regular repeat business and most importantly significantly increase profits and personal income.
The result, in under 12 months, Jane and George have a happy and motivated team dedicated to the business.
They regularly take time out and family holidays together.
The children are receiving the education their parents had dreamed they could have.
Jane and George are happy, excited, more relaxed and now highly rewarded.
The business has doubled in turnover and profits.
But that’s not all
We continued to work together. Jane and George have gone on to double their business not once, but twice again
AND, we’re currently working to do this for a FOURTH time
Now, you may be wondering…
What’s the secret?
Are Jane and George exceptional super-humans?
Well, frankly, no. They’re not! They’re just like you.
But they have done a few things differently to most people.
First they’ve used just a few of my strategies and then gone and taken fast, effective and meaningful action.
And to help you do the same I have set up two Double Your Business Business Training Workshops in Bristol and Cardiff for November & December.
To register on to one of our next two Double Your Business Events, in either Bristol or Cardiff in order to find out how this business growth can be achieved, please click the link to the business growth event that’s in the area best for you!
P.S. Important: This proves you can double your business and repeat that success with just two things. The right mind-set and the right tools.

1. Twitter Marketing
Set up a Twitter Account and Follow up to 5,000 of your target audience.
A large proportion will follow you back and those that don’t can be unfollowed so that you can follow some more.
This could be a particular niche or businesses / consumers in a certain geographical location. Whilst you are building followers and when you have thousands of followers, send out information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.
2. Facebook Marketing, Facebook Pages and Facebook Group Marketing
Use your personal Facebook account to connect with potential customers and partners, also create a Facebook Page and get your friends, potential partners and target audience (clients etc) to like and share your page. Whilst you are building likers & followers and when you have thousands of followers, send out information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.
You can also set up groups for your target audiences and get some of those to join your group where you can also share information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.
3. LinkedIn Marketing and LinkedIn Company Pages
Make sure you have a good LinkedIn profile page that covers everything that you do including all of your skills and which links to your company website, blog and Facebook page etc. Also add links to any video that you might have etc.
Also create a Company page on LinkedIn (you need an email address on a registered domain to do this) and regularly post information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience via your LinkedIn company page and your regular posts facility on LinkedIn.
Finally on LinkedIn regularly connect with lots of people in your target audience on LinkedIn (but not to many all at once though as LinkedIn can block you). Also join lots of groups full of your target audience and connect with them via the group (Something linkedin allows you to do more aggressively than just connecting with people).
Create a blog or ideally add a blog to your existing website or get a new website with a blog already included and start blogging regularly about your business, products and services etc.
This can help to improve the Seo of your website and get it associated with more keywords to help you get indexed more regularly the search engines and helping you to appear higher up and more often in the internet page ranks.
5. Keyword Content Marketing via content pages on your website
You should have an existing website or get a new website and create great keyword written landing pages for your business, as well as every single product and service and geographical area covered etc.
This will help to improve the Seo of your website and get it associated with more keywords to help you appear higher up and more often in the internet search engine page ranks helping you to get more enquiries.
