The truth about the death of your business

Businesses live and die every day. Thousands upon thousands of businesses complete this cycle.

Some take a few years, some a few decades. How long do you want your business to survive? Are you a flash in the pan, or a slow-cooked masterpiece? While some entrepreneurs are ‘hoping’ for that overnight success, most of the realistic ones understand that it takes years to build an overnight success.

I’ve said it a number of times – digital is the long game, it takes time to build out the infrastructure and get everything in place. Digital business is not just about your website.

You need to look beyond your website, far beyond that, as that will transition out of the digital ecosystem in the future. It’s beyond ‘social media’. How are you creating your pathway to disruption? For those businesses that see the opportunity, who can visualise how they can start to disrupt things, will be the businesses of the next decade.

The ones who will get left behind, will be just that – a has-been; a website that was never finished, a social media program that was never engaging enough, a social selling program that was never actually instituted.

The future is digital.

YOUR future is digital.
