It’s better to go a mile deep than a mile wide when it comes to your business

Productize your offering

At some point, when you have enjoyed a consistent demand for your training services, the time comes for you to ‘productize’ them and monetise them.

If you are constantly creating new content for new clients, you rapidly wear both yourself and your team out trying to be all things to all people.

“As a training business owner, you are always ‘tinkering’ with your IP (intellectual property), looking for feedback to find out what customers like and don’t like….”

Andrew Tilling – Facilitator and Coach

Sadly, some training businesses build a library of dozens or hundreds of programs or versions of programs which are never used again.

Taking this feedback into consideration, Andrew is glad that today Strategic Team Coach is a very refined product.

“Something which I learned – probably two years later than I could have done – is that it’s better to go a mile deep rather than a mile wide…..”

That’s worth re-reading .
