[For Business Owners] Investing Back Into the Biz
Hey all, I'm curious to know what other business owners do when it comes to investing profits back into the business (vs. taking it out as revenue). As context, I run a small business (me, my wife, a VA) and we had a really solid year last year (gross revenue north of £500k with a very solid profit margin as we are a lightweight, service-based biz). We use the "Profit First" operating model, meaning we pay ourselves first, so we draw a nice salary and also pay ourselves quarterly bonuses when our "profit" pot has extra money. Now we're winding down the year, trying to think about investments we could make to grow and improve the business (customer research, website development, content strategy, etc.) A quick Google leads me to believe the range is around 2.5% to 5% of profit for B2B and slightly higher, maybe 5-10% for B2C. But I'm much more curious to hear from fellow business owners on a similar path. Anyone out there? Thanks!

@Ömür Yanıkoğlu hope you're enjoying it! I run the "Make Time at Work" at training and consulting business, so I'm quite biased but it's a great read :)

The follow up process - Question after the call yesterday
Dear all, in yesterdays call we had a question around a follow-up process with our clients. As Rebecca mentioned AJ & Smart don't follow up. Their offer is just the workshop, maybe the Who-What-When and that's all. I would like to know if you partner or recommend with agencies or consultants to help your clients with the next steps? How do you handle this in the best case? As I mentioned last week, I want to change my business model a bit and I only want to work in my zone of genius, for example workshops for problem discovery and identification (thanks to Jonathan for the impulse). Since last week I was wondering what to do with the information out of a workshop like this. Will my client be able to handle it by themselves? Looking forward to your ideas and thoughts.

Great question, and not easy to answer :) To preface, I mainly offer 'trainings' to clients, not as many 'workshops' (which I take to be more open-ended and generative). For us, it usually makes sense to have some type of Add-on or Follow-up offer, as it's not only valuable to reinforce the learning aspect of the training, it's also very profitable as you are upselling to an existing client, which is way easier than selling to a new client. So we have various types of these sessions, depending on the training, and usually are a bit of reflection, a bit of consolidation of learning, and a bit of 'advanced' content on the same topic. If I sell a training/workshop for say $4,500, then I'd offer a follow-up type of thing about 4-6 weeks later and price it around $2,250.
