Benefits of having a positive online reputation.

A positive online reputation is a real entity like each one of us. As we know that our reputation walks two feet ahead of you. It showcases the unified mental conception everyone shares about you. Positive online reputation is hard-won. It takes years to place your brand on to the shore and be notable. Even then a moment of indecisiveness can cause your years of earned reputation to fall in a second. You can build your good name by keeping your promises, going beyond the ordinary, being responsive and trying to resolve the problem as quick as you can.

You can master the art of having a positive online reputation rather than simply leaving it up to the opinions of others. A good reputation can help an organization prosper in their purpose.
In their venture to be successful, business owners constantly rely on only one factor that is their customers. Most of the customers always prefer a company with a good reputation over companies selling the same product or services.

It helps to combat negative criticism and it can come to your rescue when some external factors start to harm you or your business. In addition to this, the loyal network you have built up will be there to cover you without you even asking. It sets a target and acts as a motivator for us to constantly try to improve. It most importantly serves as a powerful marketing tool for the company. When your services outperform those of your competitors, the customer becomes yours forever. It attracts great talent as everybody wants to work for a company whose reputation roars of success. It makes you look like a top hook in the market and this publicity makes others look up to you and separates you from the rest.

Join our community, Developing a positive reputation can be difficult. After all, it takes a lot more than a great idea in order to reach success. And that is where we are to provide mentoring and structural resources for you to prosper.

What to Consider Before Accepting Venture Cash

Turn on the TV these days and you are often inundated with America’s obsession over the big payday and getting rich quick. Whatever happened to the American dream? Let’s look at the data. Over half a million startups get going in the U.S. each month. That’s a lot of competition. Many of them are chasing the big venture capital firm and angel investor dollar.

If you are in the small percentage of companies that actually get VC funded, you are in the minority. Most of the funding for startups comes from personal loans, credit cards and friends and family. Of those that do get funded, only a few of them succeed. So based on the statistics, most likely you’re business will fail. You will be in debt or owe your parents so much money you will be mowing their lawn until you get those AARP mailers.

You might be asking yourself, “Why do I keep hearing about VC firms and how they change the world?” The answer there is that you bought into the hype. VC firms make their money on hype. This is why you should think twice before giving up partial ownership of your business to venture capitalists.

From your idea to your team to your funding, take the power back. Build your business in a vacuum. Don’t concentrate solely on your existential path. In my business, I saw competitors charging too much in the moving industry. There wasn’t a solution for the consumer out there. I did more market research and found cheaper options for the consumer on various platforms, such as Groupon, LivingSocial and other moving companies that didn’t want the hassle with small markups. I stepped in between, charged a referral fee to connect the business and consumer and bridged the commerce gap. I turned that into a business model I could monetize and package. Focus on marketing and selling before you invest in any business to make sure you can make revenue quickly and then build your product. Before I start any business, I make sure if fulfills a need in the marketplace and fund it with money I have made.

Make sure you have just enough to get it going. Focus on revenue; not on getting funded. Roll up your sleeves, build the right team, and keep them close and interested. With this model, I’ve also found that the proof is in the pudding. If you are passionate, you can find a niche that works and makes money. If your team sees the end game and believes in you, investors will reach out to you. Typically, once I reach $25,000 to $50,000 per month in revenue, I either sell my businesses or get an investment in it. Make sure you have the power to make those decisions for your company.

All good things come to those who make money before asking for money. That’s how you do it right. And when you do it right, they always come to you (and you can take them or leave them).

Use your previous mistakes to make you that much more successful.

Who is your hero? (In business, life, or both.)

I don’t necessarily have heroes, but I do like what Elon Musk is doing in Tesla and Space X. He keeps pushing the envelope further in business and innovation.

What’s the single best piece of business advice (unorthodox tips welcome!) that helped shape who you are as an entrepreneur today, and why?

I don’t follow one piece of advice. I like to listen to all advice that has been given to me over the years and form my own plan. I don’t believe that one simple piece of advice can change how you do business. It’s the multitude of situations you face when starting a business that shape who you are as a businessperson and an investor.

What’s the biggest mistake you ever made in your business, and what did you learn from it that others can learn from too?

The biggest mistake I made was when I was first starting out and my company was making lots of money was not realizing that my company’s bank account and my personal account were separate. I thought I could spend money like a drunken sailor. I’ve learned to save and separate the two, and know that a new house and car is not that important, but saving for a rainy day is. You never know when business will slow down and you might need to expect the unexpected. Make sure you have money for payroll. You are as only as good as your employees.

What do you do during the first hour of your business day and why?

I check emails, texts, CRMs and accounts to make sure all employees, clients and partners are satisfied and on the same page. Communication is the most important because that’s how you build trust within your organization.

What’s your best financial/cash-flow related tip for entrepreneurs just getting started?

Stop worrying about failure. If you fail and dont get back up, business is not for you. At least you know that much, and you can keep your 9-to-5 job.

Quick: What’s ONE thing you recommend ALL aspiring or current entrepreneurs do right now to take their biz to the next level?

I invest in talent and let other team members do what I cannot seem to wrap my head around. Once you have tried a certain strategy without making headway, look for talent, partners and mentors who will believe in your product or service. If you cannot afford them, offer equity or something valuable for their help to take you to the next level.

What’s your definition of success? How will you know when you’ve finally “succeeded” in your business?

Success is a theory to me. It’s defined differently from every single person. What my success means will not make sense to anyone but me.

Why You Should Invest Like You Have Nothing to Lose

My approach to business stems from a place of deep insecurity. My single mother raised me to be solvent and self-sufficient. Therefore, I always felt that I had nothing to lose. At age 16, after only being in the United States for a few years, I began my journey as an entrepreneur. I always had an eye for clothing and used to buy them used in bulk. I would go to Melrose Ave., a famous shopping and tourist destination in Los Angeles, and sell to people walking by. I went anywhere I felt I could make a profit.

Know Who to Trust With Your Ambitions 

After a few years, I saved up enough money to start my own label: a high-end men’s clothing line. I hired a full-time pattern maker and seamstresses to turn my dream into a reality. When looking for the right candidates, I made sure to ask for referrals and make connections through friends and family. I usually looked beyond resumes: Identifying passion and reliability is key during the interview process.

I took my samples, crammed them in a suitcase and walked from store to store marketing my clothing line to whoever would listen. I got kicked out of almost all of them. My last hope was MAGIC, the biggest fashion trade show in the U.S. I couldn’t afford a booth so I created a catchy slogan, made a big sign and paraded it throughout the conference. I handed as many of my catalogs to everyone I could before getting kicked out.

I arrived back at LA feeling like a failure. I hadn’t secured any requests for my clothing after approaching every buyer. But within a few days, the phone started to ring. I got sample requests from Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Macy’s. At age 20, I couldn’t keep up with the orders that were coming in. I sold out everything I had at first to Bloomingdales, then to Nordstrom and then to Macy’s. I was shipping nationally and internationally. After three years, I was doing $500,000 in sales and making 30,000 pieces per year at a high markup.

Take Calculated Risks

At 21, my youth showed. I couldn’t hold onto as much money as I needed to accommodate the changing buyers in the industry. The cost of manufacturing increased and I expanded too quickly. Orders were canceled, sales declined and I saw the writing on the wall. I sold my company. Take risks with creative thinking and not working capital. I became more measured and calculating with my risks as time went on, especially with changing market trends and personnel.

I took the proceeds and started a new venture in relocation. I was doing so well selling moving jobs over the phone for other companies that I decided to start my own moving company. I bought moving leads from a lead generator, built a website, bought a truck, opened a warehouse, hired my own sales people and was back in business. I was up to one million in sales by the first year. Once again, I was able to channel my passion for what I was doing and apply it to a market need.

Then, the financial crisis happened. Companies stopped relocating, high-end clients couldn’t pay their storage bills and sales dropped. Once again, I adapted, learned from my experience and switched gears to junk removal and freight, where I was able to secure payment up front. I came out of the recession and sold that company in 2011.

I began to change again. I wanted to be less hands-on. I took the money I had accumulated and started a tech company. This business was all online — something I hadn’t done before. In 2015, I sold that company and became an investor. I now invest in three different applications and provided seed money to grow them into profitable businesses.

Pursue Your Passion

I am fulfilling a lifelong dream of helping others achieve the success I have made. I can now take a break from the hands-on, day-to-day operations of running a company. I have come a long way from selling blue jeans on the street. I have always used that same tenacity as a young, insecure teen to achieve great success as an entrepreneur.

Be passionate about what you do. The drive and excitement are infectious to those around you and will carry you through tough times. Most of my success is due to hard work and perseverance. I gave myself three months to succeed in each endeavor. If I didn’t see progress within three months, I would tweak my approach. If nothing changed, I would move on.

Listen to what the customer is telling you. If you don’t get anything back from them, then it’s not working. I decided what my next move would be usually out of frustration. I was annoyed that the “high” fashion I used to see selling for a lot of money lacked a lot of substance. I decided to change that myself. When I got into the relocation industry, I talked to clients and I carved a niche. Find what works for you, be passionate and always be open minded about where you are going to end up.

Meet John Daniel of InnovatorJohn in Santa Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to John Daniel.

John, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have been in business since I was 16, from designing clothes and selling worldwide department stores like Nordstrom, and Bloomingdales to owning a shipping and freight company which I sold in 2012. I now invest in technology namely on-demand, and real estate. Being an investor, you get to know a lot of innovators in Los Angeles, and happy to provide seed investment. I also help companies with adding revenue, funding, and business consulting

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I failed with a few investments, and always manage to bounce back. In the beginning of my career I got kicked out of a lot of stores, and offices where no one wanted to buy any of my clothes samples. I just let go of the shame, and didn’t really care if I failed. I kept going, and if something didn’t work, I was always willing to change and adapt until it worked.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about InnovatorJohn – what should we know?
InnovatorJohn is a business development firm where we invest in start-ups, as well as help businesses with getting their products and services off the ground and to the next level. We help with funding, marketing, sales and support. We have worldwide clientele, and we’ve helped companies generate millions of dollars in sales, as well as helped them exit.
We have invested in multiple start-ups like sparoll.com and takestar.com who are already nationwide.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
1. Stop making excuses.
2. Get rid of negative people in your life.
3. Embrace failure.

What To Consider Before Working With Business Development Companies

I have been in business for more than 20 years and have launched and successfully sold six companies. That being said, finding talent — and having someone from the outside telling me what I was doing wrong — could have helped me avoid a lot of mistakes along the way.

In today’s business environment, there are so many exciting things happening. This is led primarily by the Silicon Valley sector. Young, innovative and adaptive to the ever-changing technology, these companies drive a trillion-dollar engine that reaches all over the globe in milliseconds, changing the fabric of the way we do business forever. This is a reflection of a public that wants things to be faster, easier, cheaper and user-friendly. However, like all marriages, the relationship between company and client is not perfect. And unfortunately, unlike human relationships, business is a one-way street: The customer is perfect, always right every time, no questions asked. The market adapts to what they want and need or it dies.

As someone who runs a business development company (BDC), I’ve found that finding the right people to hire and connecting with clients and customers are two of the major problems facing companies today. Companies can make or break just on these two aspects. For startups especially — where the focus is on innovation, creativity and adaptability — I’ve observed that the difference between the successful few and the hordes of failures often falls on the less sexy parts of running a business: personnel and customer service.

BDCs aim to solve these problems. A BDC is a partner with experience or a full-time executive officer who will guide, lead or help you out of unforeseen technical or financial issues. BDCs invest in small to mid-size businesses. BDCs are not a new concept — rather, they’re the ones that help businesses do the right thing at the right time with a twist to match each businesses needs.

Let’s say you are a hipster startup and are young, ambitious, idea-driven and business-minded. Or let’s say you are a 10-year-old company with a solid business model but haven’t adapted to a changing demand and are in a slump. The BDC is like a really good friend who hangs around your circle of friends (but not all the time) and you have great talks and a lot of fun. You don’t have to get him a present for the holidays or listen to him yap about family drama, but he always seems to be at the right functions and makes everyone have a good time — you just like having him around. This, in a sense, is how a BDC works.

BDCs already have all the tools and employees to support a startup, as well as a struggling business. A BDC could be the experienced or outside talent to correct or improve your day-to-day operation. In my experience, launching a startup or refreshing a staff with fresh blood is often the most challenging for companies. A BDC will make things easier until you correct or streamline your operation.

Personnel

Let’s take personnel. You have seed money, but not enough time and resources to hire good people. But you need good people, and you need them now. Whether you’re a startup or a struggling business, a BDC will send in their manager to take a look at what you need. They will staff you up with the right pieces in place from marketing to customer service to sales and operations. Where do they come them? They come from all over the world and are good at what they do and are already screened and trained. In some cases, a BDC may provide a virtual workforce that — through e-mail, conference calls, video chat sessions and phone calls — work for the client. There’s also the opportunity to have a workforce in-house working directly alongside your team.

You want to think of the BDC as a nonpermanent solution. It should either help you start your business, complement it or help you scale your operation.

Marketing, Public Relations And Sales

OK, well how about marketing, PR and sales? A lot of companies need an online presence and help with their social media marketing, optimization and sales. BDCs specialize in knowing everything there is to know about the tricks of the trade. Catering your online presence — whether through marketing or PR that’s traditional or social media-driven — is a big headache that can lead nowhere fast and drain your reserves or can shoot your evaluation up in a heartbeat. These days there are algorithms, platforms and trend forecasting that changes by the second. BDCs are on top of every single minutia to give their clients that competitive edge over the other guy and help them better connect with customers.

The BDC is a there to complete your business with tasks or issues you cannot get to yourself. I’ve found in some cases, business owners don’t know where to spend their dollars, most times wasting it, especially on marketing with no return on investment. BDCs can have the experience and manpower that business owners don’t, and for that, they should be considered.
