In a career well-populated by clients and friends who are start-up entrepreneurs, I have come to understand why some succeed, even dramatically, while more than a few fail. However, success or failure, I’ve only met a handful who have a clue about even two or three of the five essential start-up business strategies I’m going to discuss. These strategies also apply to launching new products.
In working directly with 37 companies (17 start-up and 30 existing with new products), launching 82 new products, as well as having recruited for my clients more than 700 superb, self-motivated sales reps, I’ve witnessed companies that struggled out the gate with a business or product launch. I’ve also witnessed those companies that flawlessly executed their launch—nonetheless, still missed the mark, especially during that all-important initial launch phase of capturing brand recognition and market share.
By carefully analyzing start-ups’ varied track records, I have been able to determine the “why” of success or failure, specifically five critical steps every business needs to take in order to succeed. Consider this my “secret sauce”—what I bring to my clients to help ensure success. This is the only path I’ve found that consistently allows a start-up company, or a company’s new product, to “crack the rich code.”
