- Startups and small businesses all face the same problems - no matter where they are, whether the startup is located in Australia or in South Africa, all startups face the same challenges: how to find the best people to work for them, which lead generation marketing campaigns to implement, where to get initial funding and perhaps even where to set up shop.
- Consult a mentor - because of the above, it is always a good idea to find a mentor. One who has gone through and survived the startup stage of his business. These people can help startups decide whether outsourcing processes to an offshore telemarketing company is a good idea, and how to prepare for their first successful appointments.
- Gather ideas from other employees - when lead generation campaign ideas seem to become increasingly redundant, startup owners should try to ask the help of their employees. They will never know when they have an innovator on board unless they ask.
- Breakdowns are followed by breakthroughs - when things seem like they can’t get any worse than they already are (which, of course, they can and will), startup owners should remember that pressure helps bring about spectacular breakthroughs. The loss of a high-performing salesman might just push a sales and marketing team to formulate a revolutionary marketing plan that will attract hot sales leads like flies to honey.
