Cut costs or increase your income?

Cut costs or increase your income? By Rich Quindry

Many businesses foolishly focus on reducing expenses. Now, it’s true that you need to be wise, but how much can you cut and still stay in business? Probably the most you can add to the bottom line this way and still keep your doors open is 10 or 20%.

If you want to substantially increase your profit, you’ve got to increase your income, and you do that with marketing. Marketing is not an expense, it’s an investment. Paper towels are an expense.

Properly done, marketing returns much more in profits than it costs. If you were at a slot machine that continually paid back $200 for every $100 dollars that you spent would you consider putting in another $100 an expense or an investment? As long as your slot machine called marketing is paying off, you should be putting more money into it, not less. If it’s not paying off then you need to fix your marketing or fix what you’re selling.

By investing in marketing the potential increase in your profits is limitless.

    This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!Katy Home Security, 4410 Huntwood Hills Ln., Katy, TX 77494 – (281) 394-0477
