– Ask customers what they like about your company and tell them if they could provide more referrals, it would make you happy.
The first step to scaling your business is understanding what makes you different from your competitors. In order to grow, you need to be proactive and focus on what it is that you’re offering in a way that your customers will find transformative. Once you’ve done this, evaluate your current processes and systems to see how well they are working for you; then scale based on referrals from your existing customers.
Furthermore, identify any gaps or opportunities for improvement and scale the transformative experience by using your first and third party reviews for new products and ideas.
