Profitability over Gross Services: Your Blueprint for Market Success

January 08, 20244 min read

In the bustling corridors of professional service industries, where the clamor for client attention is as intense as the Wall Street trading floor, lies an often overlooked truth: the path to prosperity isn't paved with the volume of services, but with the gold of profitability.

Understanding Your Battlefield: The Competitor Landscape

 

This article was inspired by many business owners asking me the best way to increase their business. As a former president of a venture capital group owning 28 chiropractic practices, the daily plea was to acquire more practices to boost revenues. However, I always redirected focus to the profitability of each individual practice. Profitability, not mere expansion, should be the cornerstone of your strategy.

Ask Yourself: In your business, what do you focus on? Increasing services, income, new clients, a service that has an ROI covering expenses, or creating profits? Or perhaps all three?

Over the years, I've observed a scenario that's a bit scary. The entrepreneurial world seems obsessed with creating a business measured by its gross income. This might be acceptable for some as a crude measurement for production, but many operate with an “elephant in the room: a lack of focus on profitability and only measuring gross service. 

One past client, despite collecting 1.2 million dollars over 12 months, struggled with paying his overhead expenses. His focus was on creating a million-dollar income practice without planning for profit. He only saw his massive income as a way to purchase more equipment or decorate the place… (it was beautiful). However, with few tweaks in his strategy for operations and the implementation with some strategic procedures, this practice's net profit could increase significantly, all without additional marketing or non-revenue-creating expenses.

Reflecting Business statistics

It's essential to know not just where you stand, but where others do too. Has your competitor's market share been a rising tide or a receding wave over the past five years? Such insights are the compass guiding your ship in the vast ocean of market dynamics.

 

Reputation: The Currency of Trust

Building Reputation

What's the word on the street about you and your competitors? Understanding public perception is akin to holding a crystal ball that predicts your future market standing.
