28 – How to Substantially Grow Revenue and Profit

Substantially Grow Revenue and Profit

Today’s guest, Kevin Hargraves, has been a successful business owner for 40+ years.  He has bought many struggling businesses, with the objective of turning them round.  In each case he transformed the operations, marketing and sales, and grew them quickly and sold them on, each one making a nice healthy profit.

He learnt how to do this a long time ago from a gentleman called Michael Gerber (Author of The EMyth).

These days he enjoys helping others. He is now a Business Growth Expert at Best Business Coach, and loves helping other serious business owners to grow their companies exponentially.

He runs a very affordable group coaching service where business owners meet with him every week to work through his 12 strategies to improve revenue and profits.

They help each other with ideas, encourage each other, and share their achievements.

In this chat, Kevin outlines 3 of the 12 strategies, along with several really interesting stories about three trade businesses he has coached. They have each gone from a state of despair to achieving substantial growth in revenue and profits, and are dominating their local markets.

  • Listen to how a plumbing business overcame their fear and substantially increased revenue and profits, without losing any customers
  • Find out how Kevin helped an engine reconditioning business to turn an annual loss into a healthy annual profit
  • Discover the powerful strategy a Gold Coast skip bin business implemented to increase revenue by 400%

About Annette

Hi there. My purpose in life is to help trade business owners to grow a successful business. The purpose of this podcast is to share interviews with business experts that we believe do know what they're talking about, to help our listeners grow their business and achieve more than they ever thought possible. So who am I to want to give help to trade business owners about business? Good question! I’m married to a tradie, addicted to marketing and fascinated by what makes a successful business, well successful. Marketing is certainly on top of the list, but there are other areas of the business to get right - which is why this Tradie Success episodes delve into all areas of running and growing a trade business. In terms of my experience - I have marketing quals, 30+ years marketing experience, and have helped hundreds of small businesses (a lot of them tradies) achieve better results through their marketing.
