It can be hard to determine where your future revenue will come from. You know there’s a market out there, you just need to find it.

 

Don’t despair – even the big mining companies have similar issues to address. They may not be prospecting for likely people to buy their product or service but they still prospect and they can spend zillions trying to find it and then they have to mine it before they get a return.

 

So how do we find our market when we don’t have unlimited funds to do it?

 

We can reduce the time to market and the associated costs by doing some internal research and asking the following questions;

 

  • – Who buys your product or service now?

 

  • – Break your information down to see if any patterns arise i.e. Is there a gender bias, do they come from similar industry groups, how about locality, is geography an issue?

 

  • – How did they find you?

 

  • – By what method did they order from you i.e. via your website, over the phone, through media advertising?

 

This will form the basis for a customer profile. Knowing who your customer is, where they come from and how they wish to interact with you will give you a very good understanding of how to market to your potential audience, making your business development dollars work harder.

 

One further element you need to keep in mind is the even though you might be ready to sell, your prospect may not be ready to buy. That doesn’t mean they will not buy its just that they’re not ready yet. Be aware that you need to stay top of mind so that when they are ready, its you, that is the first port of call.

 

Its not an art to remind your audience by communicating your message regularly but it does require you to develop a program that over time will turn them into customers. Think about how you can stay top of mind with your customers.

Everyday, someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. From workplace incidences, to road and water accidents or extreme sports, the event of permanent paralysis is always unexpected and frequently preventable.

PBF Australia (The Paraplegic Benefit Fund) was established to create greater awareness of these risks, with the aim of reducing the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia. Quickmail are proud to be members of Paraplegic Benefit Fund Australia.

Yesterday Quickmail had a presentation from Symon and Katie. On behalf of the staff at Quickmail, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Your visit has no doubt left a strong impression with us all and left us thinking of ways to aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.

Some key statistics surrounding spinal cord injuries include the following:
- 3 spinal cord injuries per week in WA
- Approximately 141 spinal cord injuries per year in WA
- 46% of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle related
- 34% of spinal cord injuries are from falls
- 11% of spinal cord injuries is an “other” category (i.e. violence, being hit by objects, jerked off a horse, etc.)
- 9% of spinal cord injuries are Aquatic related
- Average age of a spinal cord injury is 43 primarily due to slips, trips and falls but the common age bracket for young adults is 15-24 particularly in males.
