Listen to some short clips taken from the first few months...
Why will this programme help me grow my business?
- Because we’ve worked with over 5,200 business leaders, MDs and Business Owners from just about every industry and scale of business to help them grow to the next level and generate profits, our Coaches have significant experience of what it takes to drive profitable growth
- Because our Coaches are highly sought after not only for their ability to help clients generate profit, but also as expert guests to speak on Radio and TV, in Newspapers and at Conferences
- Because each month we’ll address one particular theme and the specific steps you can take that will have massive benefits for your business, all broken down into no-nonsense ‘plain English’!
- You won’t find a more powerful resource for motivating you to take action to grow your Business, or that offers you the breadth and depth of the expertise that you need to differentiate yourself from your competitors.
- We shall make it easy for you to take action and to grow your business. Each month we will focus you on the specific actions to take, that will have massive benefits for you and your business, broken down into simple bite-sized chunks.
So what's in each month's pack?
- An easy-to-listen-to CD full of leading edge insights for your business success, no theory here, just practical ideas and the steps to take to implement them immediately
- Exclusive interviews with Business Experts and successful entrepreneurs sharing their most successful tips and strategies. Again, they’ve been there, so no theory here
- However, because we’re Business Coaches you’ll also find a workbook containing a detailed, step-by-step action plan of how to implement the strategies discussed on the CD within your own business for immediate benefit – there shouldn’t be any reason not to, we’re making it easy (you will have to do the exercise that’s included each month though!!)
- A monthly, business-building Marketing Strategy that you can put into action to secure new customers (members rave about these!)
- Regular emails with additional tips and ideas all designed to support you as you begin to implement these Business Success Strategies into your business
- Advanced notice and ‘early bird’ discounts on our future courses, seminars and materials – so look out for these!
Can I choose which modules I receive?
Yes or No... the choice is yours!
Yes, we understand that there may be a specific issue or help you need right now, perhaps you are about to recruit some additional resources and want to save time and money getting this right first time and would value the content on 'Successful Recruitment Pays'? Or maybe you are under such time pressure that you don't know how you could find time for this programme (even though you like the sound of it..) and would appreciate listening to our 'Maximise Time Leverage' module before you sign up to the monthly programme! So all the monthly modules can be bought individually through our shop.
If you opt for the monthly programme, we will send you a different module every month, and whilst you are not in control of the order, you will get all the available modules if you stay a member of the programme.
Do I have to sign up to a long term programme?
No, you can become a member just for the free trial period of 1 month, or if you choose to receive all the modules, the monthly membership programme will last 18 months. You can of course choose to unsubscribe at any time so you are in complete control of how long your membership lasts.
If you're in a hurry and want to get the information at a faster rate then we have options in the shop to buy anything from individual modules to sets of 6 and 12 modules at a time.
How much does it cost?
Nothing to try it!
We offer a free 1 month trial where we supply the full month 1 programme and 3 bonus CDs for FREE. We only ask you to cover the postage and packaging for the trial. If you like the resources and believe they will help you grow your business, then subsequent months cost from £39.77 + vat depending on the format (MP3 only or CD and MP3) and which programme you choose (Bronze, Silver or Gold)?
What are the Bronze, Silver, and Gold membership levels?
The Bronze level is our main programme - you will receive the audio materials every month plus your Action Sheet (yellow sheet), Marketing Information (blue sheet) and your monthly bonus materials.
However we had feedback from our members saying that whilst they loved the programme they wanted to step it up a gear and start to enjoy some bespoke 1-to-1 coaching too (although weren't quite in a position yet to move onto one of our full face to face business coaching programmes..) so we developed our Silver and Gold memberships to meet your needs and offer you a highly bespoke business coaching programme and access to the UK's top Business Coaches at highly affordable monthly membership fee.
Business Success Strategies Silver Membership combines your Bronze membership of your monthly modules plus a 1-to-1 telephone coaching session with a business coach of your choice, from our team, every 2 months. The business coaching session lasts for 1 hour, and can be based on the content and action plans from the audio programme you have worked through over the previous two months or on any subject of your choice. It is 100% bespoke to your specific business needs, to get you to achieve your goals faster.
Business Success Strategies Gold Membership steps it up another gear and combines your Bronze membership of your monthly modules plus a monthly 1-to-1 telephone coaching session with a business coach of your choice, from our team. As with the Silver membership, each business coaching session lasts for 1 hour, and can be based on the content and action plans from the audio programme or any other subject of your choice. It is 100% bespoke to your specific business needs, to get you to achieve your goals faster.
More information on the Bronze, Silver and Gold Business Success Strategies Memberships are available in the shop.
What is the '1 Hour Business Challenge?'
We often call our free 1 month trial the '1 hour Business Challenge' as we believe if you were to spend just 1 hour a week, for the 4 weeks during the trial, working on the materials in the pack (we break the first month's materials down for you into 4 x1 hour chunks to make this even easier!), then we are confident you will get immediate benefit for your business and also have an action plan to immediately improve your revenue.
Can I get it for Free?
Everyone can get the first month trial for free (as we have already said, we only ask you to cover the postage and packaging).
For companies that qualify though there are also options to get a 100% government grant 'Leadership and Management Grant, Train to gain Programme) which could be used to cover 12 months on the Bronze Programme.
Or you could chose to get a 66% grant and get 12 months support made up of 8 months on the Silver Programme plus 4 months of Bronze membership.
To our knowledge, the grant is only available in England and the conditions to qualify vary within each region and are constantly changing. As a minimum though you will need to have:
- 5-249 staff employees (can include part-time but not associates or freelance)
- Have not previously accessed the 'Leadership and Management Grant' (part of the 'Train to Gain' government scheme)
- UK or EU citizen or lived in EU for last 3 years
For more information about the grant, download our report 'How to access your Government Funding'.
I want a fully bespoke programme - How can I have that too without paying the earth?
Both the Silver and Gold Membership levels offer a fully bespoke business coaching programme and are designed to be affordable for every business. They are by far the lowest cost way of enjoying bespoke interactions with some of the country's most experienced business coaches. There is longer a need to compromise and find a less experienced business coach to meet your budget!
To learn more about these programmes either read the section above 'what are the bronze, silver and gold membership levels?' or visit their specific pages in the shop:
- Business Success Strategies Silver Membership
- Business Success Strategies Gold Membership
How do I know it works?
The best way to find out if it works for you is to sign up to the free 1 month membership trial - there is absolutely no risk.
Another way is to read some of the testimonials from our members... so here are a few and there are more at the bottom of the page:
"I think it’s absolutely brilliant and I am going to recommend it to all of my clients" Ben Reynolds, Partner, TGFP
"I have been running a traditional business for nearly 30 years and rarely have time for business books. There’s too much work to do! The pleasure of listening to this CD in my car on the way to work was fantastic. It was like a Radio 4 interview crammed full of ideas to improve my bottom line. I’m now a convert to the Business Success Strategies programme and highly recommend it to any busy business owner who’s seriously interested in improving their business. This is my most successful year by far!"
Claire Garnett, MD, clairegarnett.com
"I like the Business Success Strategies approach - bite sized chunks focusing on specific areas of business strategy at an affordable cost. I always enjoy listening to them and reading the materials...they're a great prompt to look at areas I might not otherwise have considered...and we've had our best year to date!"
Sharron Taylor, Director, Stradia
When do I listen to it?
The format provides 100% flexibility to fit in with your business lifestyle. A lot of our members listen to it in CD format in the car on the way to work or client meetings, often describing 'like listening to a Radio 4 programme' but with actions to help drive their business! Others have it on their ipods, so they can listen to it at the gym, on the train or of course in the office or at home on their computer.
The concept is that the resources should be accessible and easy to revisit. Ideally you would listen to it in otherwise 'dead time', and then revisit it when you are ready to do the coaching exercise and establish your specific business action plan.
How long does each module last?
The Interview lasts for about 30-40minutes and the coaching itself about another 20 minutes.
1 hour of your time every month working on your business that could have a significant impact on your business growth and profits! Plus they are easy and enjoyable to listen to...it's not even hard work... and taken seriously, they could make the biggest difference to your success.
