I started my business in 2005. From 2005 to 2014 there was no growth, no success and nothing that would indicate success was coming. It was a miracle I stayed in business!
As a quick side note of FREE advice, don't make the mistake I made and keep doing what isn't working and hasn't worked for years because you are optimistic and hopeful.
In 2015, my average sale grew to between $50 and $150. But the problem was that it was a one-time sale.
In 2016, my average sale jumped to about $600 per month. The real breakthrough was that it was a six-month agreement at an average of $600 per month. In 2018, I am still earning income from clients I acquired in 2016.
In 2017, my focus and capabilities expanded from solo-enterprises alone to include events and larger companies. This allowed me to make sales that ranged from $60 for a ticket to an event to $2,700 to sponsor that event. It also meant that I began to charge $1,088.88 per month for one-on-one clients.
In 2018, my focus and capabilities continue to diversify. I control a private social media platform to deliver my content where I can control the conversation. I charge a minimum of $1,588.88 to work with an organization. My last accepted proposal was to train a large team for $21,000 with a $3,588.88 monthly support package.
My future focus is to expand beyond Rochester and far beyond what I can do myself. I am using technology, systems and people to do more than I could ever do before.
That means that if you knew me and my company as near as 2017 and lost touch with me and heard a description of the content we deliver, the products we offer, our fulfillment capabilities, the size of the clients we work with and the scope of what we are working to accomplish, you would never guess it was us.
