Our Method Works Because It's Built Around Three Simple Rules Of Profitability.
Before SellerVue: You’re just figuring things out as you go along, wondering where that darn money is. Lots of uncertainty, lots of unknowns, a whole lot more uncertainty and certainly lots of stress. After SellerVue: You know exactly where your business is making money and where it is not. You're cool, calm and collected, as certainty and confidence makes things happen fast... and profitably.
First things first, we need to teach you a little bit about our Three Rules. The magic happens when you combine our three-simple-rules and our custom built app.
Turn As Many Of Your Earned Dollars Into Profit As You Can.
When you are keeping more of the ‘dollar pie’, you spend less time wondering where the money went and more time wondering what to do with it. The goal is to keep more cents out of every dollar earned.
When you know exactly where your business is losing money, it is much easier to plug the holes. It is when you don’t track and identify the ‘margin-suckers’ is when you lose more and more of the pie. Instead, identify what ‘Slurpie-the-Margin-Sucker’ is sucking up your profits.
You're no longer hoping for a good payout, you know it is going to be good, well the best it can be. You have already squashed ‘Slurpy-the-margin-sucker’ and mapped out a plan, so instead of stressing or guessing, you’re just working your growth plan. No big lending payments, no borrowing from mommy and daddy, or inheritance required. (Just cold hard cash in the bank, but an inheritance would be nice)
Revenue looks solid poised for a nice deposit into your bank account. You believe you’re flush with cash, so begin sourcing new products, collecting purchase orders. (And you decide to go big…) But a few days later along comes comes ‘Slurpy’ and sucks up all that profit and you don’t have the extra money for big baller growth. You’re officially stressed. (and annoyed)
Revenue looks solid and in position for a nice deposit into your bank account. And, it is true. You are flush with cash. You already had some ideas for hot new products, and you have the purchase orders. A few days later, the deposit appears in your bank account you're locked and loaded for big baller growth. You’re officially excited. And ready to do it all over again.
Becoming a Dollar Drill Sergeant is not easy. When your business earns money, we tend to think of it as an limitless ATM. You need you prioritize how and where you use its money, and then simply follow your growth plan. Knowing where each piece of the 'dollar pie' goes - makes it easier to plan ahead.
The majority of us think as soon as the money hits the account we will decide what to do with it. (Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.) It should already be spent - 'Spoken for'. Remember, if you followed Rule #1 should have more money in the bank. Increasing inflow and increasing outflow. Yes, you heard that Correctly - more about that with Rule #3. It is how the game is won. But please don’t buy a Ferrari, just yet.
You’re looked back to look ahead. You know what your percentage of outflow is, and you have prepared the inflow to meet your needs - Because you have big dreams and bigger goals! You have follow Rule #1 and #2 and as a result, you’re following your growth plan (Remember Rule #1 - more cash is a game changer)checking all the boxes along the way making fully informed business choices and managing your current spending, based on specific business needs and future obligations for growing successfully.
You did well in the last 2 weeks, you exceeded your expectations and sold a whopping $50,000 worth of products. After some quick magical math, you tally up your outflow, restock what has being on your to do list, make a few payments and send a couple wires. You’re no longer flush with cash... you forgot about XYZ. You had no plan and no idea what percentages went where! You looking a little stressed. (You went from baller to blah). To grow and scale you need a legit plan.
You followed Rule #2 and planned ahead. You already know the ins and outs for that deposit. You’ve ordered ahead, no more no less. Bills are paid, ahead of schedule. And, because you followed Rule #1, you now have extra cash to stash, maybe for growth or maybe for that Ferrari (wink-wink). The point is that you are cash strong. When you follow Rule #2 and start giving every dollar spent a percentage - you'll know exactly what you have to put in to get out. It lines itself up with your business priorities. It’s not voodoo, though it feels that way.
Measuring data gives you the information you need to make sure you actually achieving growth. If you cannot measure - you cannot grow. Data is not about throwing numbers on a page to get some warm and fuzzies, but more about accountability. The trick is to measure what you need, understand what you are looking at, and then make sensible informed decisions.
When you are running a business, it is important that you know that you are on the right track. The first thing you got to do is figure out what you want to know before you start measuring things. Once the right data is captured and measured, the eye-catching information leads you to the most important points. Remember, growth does not magically happen. It is measured and duplicated. (Over and over again.)
You don’t need to be perfect! But, research shows that , and the simple act of measuring something sparks that sense of rivalry in many people. And, rivalry doesn’t need to be with others, it can be with just you as a“mini competition” to see whether you can beat a goal. Without measuring, there is no way to determine whether you have won, and therefore, less motivation to get something done. Rinse and repeat and win. Winning isn’t everything, but sure feels better than losing.
You see the revenue, but just cant feel the profit. You've been staring at a fancy dashboard, or maybe an elaborate Excel spreadsheet! In between the columns and rows of data and highlighted boxes - you think you've found the issue but really you have no idea where to look? Or what to do next. You want to grow - And, be that big baller you were destined to be. But damn running a business is hard work. Unless you are really familiar with the information, you’re probably going to file that report in the folder called ‘never-to-be-looked at again’.
You're flush with cash and ready to invest, hopefully back into the business - or something fancy. Now that we actually have real useful data that shows us what we did or did not do, what that impact was, and what we need to do differently. That is what we call Accountability. Without accountability we have nothing to nudge us in the right direction - whop whop. Even something did not go according to plan - you don’t feel like a failure or have that mini-tantrum because you have the tools to make change happen. Rule #3 is where the magic begins.
Keep more what you earn, plan your costs and grow with the surplus... easy enough!
