Internal Environment

Target Market

  • Look at the sales trend you have -
  • Who are you currently selling to
  • Is this what you expected
  • Does this segment still have opportunities to grow
  • Are there better segments offering a better profit margin
  • Look for data to help you see which segments are growing or shrinking

 

Map out your Internal Processes

Be a customer yourself – see how easy, or hard it is to do business with yourself, experience the frustrations, understand what was important to you as a customer

Monitoring complaints - this is a really good way of seeing where you are falling short and maybe not getting a client in the first place or losing one
