10 Mistakes That Reduce Profitability
by Dr. Rachna D. Jain
Are you finding it hard to keep your business in the black? Then you might be making one or more of these 10 mistakes that have a negative impact on your bottom line. Find out what they are and get the solutions.
Mistake #1: They fail to market or market inconsistently.
Once you have committed to owning and running a business you must be equally committed to marketing and selling the products and services of that business. It is difficult, if not impossible, to stay and remain profitable without a commitment to ongoing concerted marketing.
Solution: Market all the time, every time.
Mistake #2: They hesitate to "ask for the sale".
Rather than seeming pushy or obnoxious they let profit-producing opportunities pass them by. They worry more about what someone thinks of them than they do about bringing more money into their business. If you find it difficult to "ask for the sale", you can be sure that you're not bringing in as much money as you could be.
Solution: Practice asking for the sale.
Mistake #3: They don't ask for help or assistance in the aspects of the business where they most need it.
Most business owners possess strengths in a particular area but whether by necessity or ignorance they often end up working in areas that aren't part of their strengths. When business is not going as it should they delay or procrastinate in asking for help. Each day that goes by with your business running at less than maximum efficiency means dollars lost from your pocket.
Solution: Get expert advice from an attorney, accountant, or other service professional before you really need it.
Mistake #4: They don't follow up with past customers.
It is usually much easier to reactivate a former customer than it is to attract a new one. If you are not following up with past customers on a regular basis you are reducing your profitability potential.
Solution: Develop and implement a regular method for customer follow up.
Mistake #5: They don't take regular stock of their expenses.
Savvy business owners regularly appraise their business expenses and find ways to reduce costs without sacrificing quality. If you haven't completed a cost analysis lately, you might be paying more than you need to be, which will reduce your profitability.
Solution: At least once per quarter review expenses and negotiate for adjustments as appropriate.
Mistake #6: They spend large amounts on glossy, slick marketing materials and expect business to pour in without any additional effort.
Glossy brochures and slick marketing materials are a nice addition to more active forms of marketing such as meeting people, calling people and speaking to people. Brochures and business cards, no matter how beautiful, do not replace direct contact. If you are spending money on flashy marketing materials rather than marketing directly you will be less profitable than you could be.
Solution: Take those glossy brochures and hand them out directly to people at the next possible opportunity.
Mistake #7: They spend a significant amount of time in low-return activities (as measured by dollars and personal satisfaction).
If you are spending the majority of your day completing tasks which are administrative in nature and/or which can be easily completed by other people you are reducing your profitability.
Solution: Track your time and figure out how much you're making per hour. Hire an assistant if you are spending the bulk of your time in administrative work.
Mistake #8: They charge less than they desire.
This challenge seems to arise especially for consultants, coaches and solo entrepreneurs who sell services. It is often tempting to accept less money than you need - so you get "some money" rather than "no money". After time, working for too little can leave you exhausted and resentful and it takes a deep cut out of your profitability.
Solution: Commit that, at the next opportunity, you will ask for full fee. And then do it.
Mistake #9: They make infrequent or no use of technology which could save them time and effort.
As a business owner, you have a fixed amount of time and energy within which you must maximize your profits. Technology can help you do this in the form of autoresponders, voicemail, wireless internet connections, speech recognition software and the like. All of these tools are designed to save you time and effort. If you are not making consistent use of technology in your business you are likely not as profitable as you could be.
Solution: Look for ways that you can make your business processes more efficient by using inexpensive technology.
Mistake #10: They adhere to outdated business models or plans.
If you do not stay up with the trends in your business you will notice a steady decline in your profitability.
Solution: Attend meetings and conferences that will keep you on target with your market. Implement new means of doing business and update your business plan at least every couple of years.
If you are serious about improving your business' profitability, start by implementing the suggested solutions to these ten common mistakes. Together, these solutions will help you make more money and have more fun in your business. Try them and see.

My love for music began at a very young age. I recall listening to my father's records when only five. My father gave me my first component system. I was 10 then. Dad probably did so because he was tired of me monopolizing his stereo all the time.
Around the age of 11, my father bought me a drum set. As time progressed word of my skills with sticks traveled. After getting pretty good I started playing in a couple of bands with a few friends; one Rock, the other R&B. I loved playing drums to Rock, known as Classic Rock today; R&B and Pop favorites.
I enjoyed music so much, as artists introduced genres, I would consume myself with mastering the top songs. Around 1981 D.C. Go-Go emerged as the hottest sound on the scene. I had those beats down. I could not wait to get to the concerts. Rap-music emerged on to the music scene and quickly grew to popularity.
The next level of music exposure, thus natural transition was spinning the "wheels of steel". I remember being captivated watching Run DMC perform his lyrics while DJ Jam Master Jay worked it out on the turntables. From that point, I was convinced that I wanted to become a DJ. I had found my calling....so I thought.
A few years later, Christmas 1987, I secured my first Gemini turntables complement by my first from Radio Shack mixer. I practiced scratching and mixing every day, hours at a time. I soon began performing at small house parties for friends and family to hone my craft. Igniting the crowd pumped me up. I got off on the dancing, the noise, the excitement...DJ Danny T came to be!
Another one of my early ventures involved starting a rap group with one of the young guys in my neighborhood. Like everyone else with the dream of rap fame and fortune, I traveled back and forth to NYC, buying records, equipment, learning beats and styles from New York. We went on to perform at various talent shows. We were committed to getting into the Hip Hop business. After realizing I may have to put that dream on the shelf, I refocused my energy and love of music to help others.
My new hobby and talent were born. I built a home studio then started producing music for local R&B and Rappers who were trying to get their first break. That's when I started Wheels of Steel Productions. A few years later, I started my mobile DJ business while splitting time DJ'ing in clubs.
Today, many years later, my hobby and love of music has become a business that I share with my wife Sandi. She brings her electric personality as the company's MC at weddings, large parties, cabarets, and corporate events. She leaves the kids' gigs to me. My wife says she's a mom first. Therefore some dances are a little too racy for her. (haha) Overall, we have a great time together and with our clients. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our talents and expertise with your companies, families, and friends.
Thank you for your business and your trust,
