Solving problems by growing profitable businesses @neil_lewis

Help for entrepreneurs – great idea, but missing sales?

open signWhat do you call an entrepreneur with a great idea but no sales?

A dreamer? An inventor? Someone who never makes it?

Okay, it is not good to be an entrepreneur without sales. In which case, what do you do?

Firstly, you need to pick up the phone, make sales calls, open your shop or market stall or open your website.

In simplest form, success as an entrepreneur is when you take a great idea AND then turn that idea into revenue (and then into profit too!).

Interestingly, the idea is the easy bit; turning it into a profitable business is much harder!

This is the point where many great inventions fall by the wayside – they just don’t get from the creators lab or back bedroom into the market place, or when they do finally arrive, they are too late or not what customers are willing to pay for.

And that’s why I, Neil Lewis,  am offering to help a select few entrepreneurs who are ready to take this step from idea to commercial business.

If you’d like to get help to commercialise your new products, services or prototypes from from someone who has been there, done that, got the T-shirt, then please get in contact.

I have a small number of places for an initial free programme including advice, access to key people and events.

After the initial free programme, we can discuss terms and decide to whether to proceed further or not with a fee based service.

To find out more, please drop me a line and fill out this questionnaire about your business. This is taken from my Rags to Wreckages site – where you can find more ideas on how to succeed as an entrepreneur.

I do have a few criteria for anyone interested

  1. – must be willing to travel to the NW of England, for events and meetings
  2. – must have a clearly articulated idea and be talking (or getting ready to talk) to customers
  3. – your product or service will be built or at least at least as a prototype
  4. – you own the product or service or  idea
  5. – you are willing to learn from others
  6. – you can work with others
  7. – you can turn up on time and keep to deadlines

If your business is just an idea, then this programme would not be for you.

However, if you are ready to move from the invention phase to the real business building and entrepreneurial phase, then please complete the business survey and then contact me.
