Episode 2 What Is Your Business Model?
What IS your Business Model?
Welcome to OEP 2
What is your Business Model?
Have to design your business
Optimise resources and maximise profits
How can we do this?
Lets look at a couple of essential frameworks
The Product/Price Pyramid
Range of Products and Services on offer
Range of prices from low to high
The more value, the higher the price
The more time you have to commit, the higher the price
Free – Convert visitors to leads
Low – Convert leads to customers
Med High – Upsell, Cross Sell and create repeat customers
Higher value products require less selling time and offer potential for higher profits
Discussed in my Sales Closing Course with Dr Subayal Khan
Must be built into all Entrepreneur led businesses
Do not sell hours for dollars
Repeat sales, low incremental costs
