“Trivial at best – I wanted real tips.”
Yesterday I received an email from someone who felt obligated to tell me how trivial these daily doses of vendor success juice newsletters are. He rambled on about how it's all common sense and that he was looking for “real tips and tricks” to make more money.
After I shot a bird at the email displayed on my screen, I realized that Ol Chuck was never going to get it. He's after a quick fix, an insight or tip that makes all the difference in the world.
Although few, they do exist and one in particular is going to be taught in my upcoming live online event. (see below)
BUT armed with the bestest, most awesomest tip – doesn't mean that you can show up in dirty bluejeans and your tobacco stained wife beater at any location and make money. Without these you'd still have nothing.
Sometimes we need to be reminded or encouraged to implement what Chuck calls “trivial” to our routine. Sometimes we learn things that may be considered trivial to one, but are inspiring and hugely beneficial to others.
Each “trivial” tip alone may hold little value, but combined with others – mold you and your business into something better, something that stands out above the rest.
You can wear the sexiest, most expensive tie in the world, but if you wear it over your dingy white, I mowed the lawn in this yesterday t-shirt, you still look like a fucktard.
You look at a successful vendor and want to know his secret. His cart is no prettier than yours, his signs are about the same, his menu almost identical, yet he's enjoying better results.
He/She is doing things you aren't.
1. A daily log and good records has helped him pick out the best times and days to open
2. It's helped him determine the best location.
3. He genuinely cares about his customer service and smiles with each.
4. She has 3 less condiments than you because she knows which ones are used occasionally and which ones are used all the time, thus saving her $300 a month in food waste.
5. She gives samples freely and thanks them for offering an opinion.
6. He found a niche and is catering to it's every need instead of attempting to please the masses.
These added up are huge! They separate the trying hard but still not getting the results they want – from the successful happy vendors.
Simple, easy, “trivial” steps are the best ones. They require little effort and combined make for a successful vendor.
What steps have you recently implemented?
