Successful business owners all have one thing in common, they are never satisfied with sales levels. Whether you are making $10,000 a year or $1 million a year, there is always a possibility for growth.
Growth only comes when you realize it can happen. You will not grow if you are content or can’t see the future possibilities for growth.
Here are three easy ways that you can transform your business from the level it is at, into a profit making machine.
Always track statistics
This may seem obvious, but most people never do it. You should always track and gather as much information as possible. Track walk in customers, track purchases, evaulate marketing, monitor amount of purchases, frequent vistiors, non-buying prospects, etc.
With this knowledge you will be more informed as to how you marketing dollars are doing and where you can increase production.
Find people you can trust
For my websites I have one person that writes nearly full time for me. I can send her topics for articles or websites, and she does the research and writes well thought out articles. I can pay her in advance and know that she is going to be there when I need writing at the last minute.
You definitely need people you can trust as well. These people may be your managers, family members, or just friends who can help in a pinch.
Develop your passion
Sometimes I need to take a drive through the country to remember why I love what I am doing. It is easy to get caught up in the fray of customer service and deadlines, but for me the most productive time is always when I am out of my business element. Use this time away to revive your passion.

3 Real Ways To Make Money Online
You’ve heard all the sales pitches for various books, CD-Roms, DVD’s, and other materials that will supposedly turn you into a genius when it comes to making money online.

Advertisement programs are available all over the internet. How can they help you make money? In this instance, your job is to build a website based on a particular topic, product, or service. Once youíve published the website, you can sign up with any number of pay-per-click services that will then populate your web page with advertisements. Others who are paying for those ads on a pay-per-click basis literally fund your paycheck. Every time they pay their invoice for clicks on their ads, a percentage will come to you.

While there are several avenues down which you can pursue internet sales, there are some ways that are smarter than others. When first beginning your pursuit of internet sales, you will need either a product or service that does not draw too much from your pocketbook. Buying a bulk product for discounted rates and reselling those items individually could be a way to break into the market. You can either set up a website from which to sell your product or services, or you can sell from internet auction sites. Many people have made quite a large sum of money selling products on auction sites. If you take into account the fees you will have to pay, the shipping costs, and the materials cost, setting your price at a level to return a reasonable profit, you can have an internet auction sales business that is highly successful. Another way to attract business is to have a unique offering, whether it is a service or product, that few or no other sellers are offering.

This can be a lucrative business venture because you sell everything as a package, giving you the ability to mark up the price to earn a profit, as well as offering customers the chance to purchase everything they need in one place, meaning greater satisfaction and more return customers.
