Double your business three years in a row – One secret no one has ever told you about

Double your business three years in a row – One secret no one has ever told you about

In the last 10 years you’ve probably talked to every kind of salesperson out there about every kind of marketing plan possible. My guess is you’ve wasted tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Well there is a better way to grow fast and profitable.

A better way that you have read about every day in the Wall Street Journal and never considered for your own small business.

A way that NO salesman will ever tell you about. Because they don’t get paid for it. Sometimes I think this concept may even be a secret.

You will not waste money on…

✓ Web site gimmicks
✓ Costly advertising with no results
✓ Building a sales teams

OK, here it is….

Start going to lunch, every day with competitors, vendors and customers. Then ask leading questions to discover if the owner may be looking for investors or to sell out.

That is your cue that trouble and distress are keeping them up at night. The competitor may be spiraling down and their looking for a way out.

Then roll those companies up into your current operation in a nothing/low down buy out. Take the clients, take the best employees – and leave the bad parts behind.  We get 2 to 5 companies a year this way in Arizona.

This is the same kind of strategic / leveraged buyout that the big boys use and it will work in a small company, even better. Once you know how to look for them, the deals are everywhere.

Even if you don’t want the business – you can get the ‘off balance sheet’ assets for almost nothing. Keep reading for an example in the next few paragraphs.

Now, every day we read, in the Wall St. Journal how Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, Richard Branson, Carl Icahn and others are building empires, while you and I struggle looking for just one more customer. Why not just buy the customers, that’s what big companies do.

How we find the deals…

We simply meet one vendor a day (EVERY DAY) for lunch. Sometimes it is just a pleasant meeting other times we uncover a troubled business that needs our help. This is a topic we cover in detail at the two day Find-Fix-Sell seminar on distressed companies.

If your sales are $100,000 to $10,000,000 this is the fastest way we know of to double your business. You can see examples of how we are doing it on our web site along with details of our next training class. Click Here for Seminar Show Details
