Business Growth Curve

Without exception, all businesses follow the same growth curve. Okay, it may vary a little between businesses but it is fundamentally the same shape. It is shown above. Short periods of growth are followed by transitional plateaus, before growth gets started again, or the business begins to decline.

Of those business owners who are ever likely to seek help, and many won’t, the most successful ones are those who seek help when things are going well, not when the business is in decline.

In fact, the vast majority of business owners seeking help are those who have already tried everything, at least as far as they are concerned, and seeing their business start to fail look for help in desperation. The longer you leave it the harder it will be and the less help you will be able to afford. If you leave it too long it just might be too late and nothing can be done.

If you are running a successful business that is approaching a level of activity, or a change, that you have little experience of, you will benefit greatly from help NOW. At the very least, you can see it as insurance policy so that you manage the next transition in your business with ease and start growing again quickly.

If your e-commerce business is growing and undergoing change, get in touch and we may be able help you grow more effectively, avoiding long transitions and periods of decline. The sooner you get in touch, the easier it will be.
