If you own a small or medium-sized business in the Milwaukee area, do you consider your business to be successful? Of course, how one defines the term “successful” is somewhat subjective, but most business owners have certain benchmarks they set for themselves to measure their success. It could be a sales figure or a profit margin or even whether or not you feel you are serving your community well. By whatever metric or metrics you have defined, is your business successful?
If you answered, “yes” to the question, we applaud you for building and sustaining your business. Businesses like yours are the backbone of the local economy and vital to the success of the wider Milwaukee community as a whole. But today we’d like to suggest that you not be content with your success.
First, let us be clear that we aren’t suggesting you should be ungrateful for the success that you have achieved or the loyalty of the customers and clients who have helped you achieve that success. We are also not asking you to forget the hard work you put in or to refuse to celebrate your accomplishments – all those things are very good and important. However, at Vertz Marketing, we want to help you push your business beyond simple “success” – however you define it – and make your business as great as it can be.
At Vertz Marketing, our industry expertise and local experience have taught us that good businesses can become great businesses. If you have a business you consider successful, keep building on what you’ve done well. If you know you have some areas where you could improve and reach even more customers and clients, go for it! Don’t be content with “good enough.”
When you strive for excellence in your business, not only does it benefit you, your family, and your employees; you also benefit the community as well. By being able to reach more and more people with your products and services, you help the good people of southeastern Wisconsin by offering them what they want and need.
So take a minute to reflect and celebrate your business’s past success, but don’t stop there. Keep working hard to make your business the best it can be. You owe it to yourself and your community.
