Bill Bartmann Business Resources: Business Consultants

Bill Bartmann advises his students to seek help from other business professionals. When it comes to running a business, many people get it stuck in their heads that they need to be able to make everything work by themselves or they will be a failure. What they often don't realize is that by doing just this they may be dooming their business.

Think about all aspects of life. When you are facing a challenge and you have people who can help you, you ask for help, right? Even back in grade school if you needed help with your homework you could ask a friend, family member or even a teacher to give you a hand.

Running your own business is no different. While you can't expect people to run your business for you, you can be willing to ask them for a little help when you need it.

Bill Bartmann Recommends Networking

Bill Bartmann's tip #1 Network with other business owners and consumers in your market area

Word of mouth is one of the best advertising forms out there, especially if you run a business that is catered to the area where you live. One of the reasons that networking is so positive a form of advertising is that it has a trust factor to it. When someone wants to know a place they can go for a particular product or service and someone you know recommends you, that is much better than seeing an advertisement in a newspaper or on TV. It gives them a recommendation from a person they know. That holds a lot more weight than any advertising you can buy.

Bill Bartmann says Seek Expert Services

Bill Bartmann's tip #2 Utilize the services of the experts around you.

Do you have friends or family members with some sort of special expertise that may be able to help you through or around an obstacle you are facing? Think about all the people you know. Everyone has areas where they are better than others. If some of the people you know have expert skills that can help you and your company, ask them for a helping hand. For example, if you know an accountant who is a good friend, why not talk to them about your company books. There is no use struggling over trying to figure out how to do the books, and possibly messing them up, when someone can help you make sure you do them right the first time.

Practice

Bill Bartmann's tip #3 Rehearse Sales Presentations with Family and Friends

If you have to do sales pitches, presentations or other things that are going to need an audience, why not have your family be that audience? Family and friends are a great testing ground for any new presentation that you need to try out for your company. Ask them to really listen and ask any questions or voice any concerns they have. You can use their feedback to make changes and make your presentation better.
