Business owners spend enormous amounts of time trying to please their most difficult customers. But is that actually where you’re making the most money?
Perry Marshall believes that 80% of your company’s profits come from 20% of your clients — and not the hard-to-please ones. Rather than trying to make every customer happy or spending hours recruiting new clients, Perry suggests that you instead redouble your efforts on the existing customers that are more likely to buy your services. When you hyper-focus on your smaller but more valuable opportunities, you can start making better use of your time, energy, and money. So, how do you figure out which customers to focus on?
