Looking for new customers? Smarten up your hustle.

For small businesses, finding new customers is key. But sometimes it can feel like fishing with only a string and a pole. Thanks to today’s technology, there is an array of strategic ways to not only reach more customers, but to make sure you’re finding the right customer base for your company.

We’ll come up with the right plan of attack for your business–whether it be through advertising, social media, freshening up your image, networking or a little bit of everything.

Meaningful messages go further.

Once you’ve found the right customers, it’s important to have the right messaging. You want to make sure your brand message declares why it matters, what it stands for, and how it is different from everyone else. It makes your customers believe in you, advocate for you and remain loyal. Our experts will help you craft your message and implement it in all your marketing materials.

We’ll also help you develop a step-by-step marketing guide to give you an overview of your branding and advertising material, as well as a budgeting guide for your expenses. With this plan, you’ll know exactly what you’re spending and when.

Finding the right opportunities takes focus.

When it comes to business opportunities–it’s all about leveraging and prioritizing: leveraging your current network for opportunities and prioritizing the right ones. Many business owners forget about the opportunities available in their current network.  By leveraging what you already have, you might be surprised at what you can do.

Prioritizing new opportunities with current tasks is key to growth. Running a small business can sometimes feel like parenting a small child–your day is filled with tackling a million small tasks, leaving you with little opportunity to focus on the big picture. It can be hard to keep those opportunities flowing when everything is getting clogged by the little things.

How do we prevent opportunity backup? By coming up with a business strategy. The development of business strategy requires expertise and analysis that most companies do not possess. Together, with our expertise and analysis and your personal knowledge of your business and values, we’ll figure out your business goals and what you need to do to achieve them. From this strategy, we’ll be able to distinguish “real” opportunities versus what might be a waste of your precious time and resources. By focusing on the RIGHT opportunities that align with your business goals, values and strategy, you’ll get growth quicker and easier.

“Equal parts business advisor, therapist, and cheerleader, Tonya, has deftly guided me through my second year of business. As a retail business located in a revitalizing downtown, my goal was to streamline my focus and efforts, refine my target market and develop a stronger brand, reduce debt, and rapidly move toward becoming a profitable endeavor. We have made marked progress in each of these areas.

Most notably, Tonya has been a treasured sounding board for the myriad of challenges faced by a new business. She shares her wisdom with confidence and humor, which has been very powerful for this sole proprietor. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with tenBiz and excited for the progress we have made in the Hive.” -Merry, The Hive
