Curious About BizTrek?
Q: What is BizTrek?
A: BizTrek is a 1-1 mentoring firm that helps ambitious professionals leverage 12 Triggers that ALWAYS relaunch growth.
Q: What does BizTrek do?
A: BizTrek uses an efficient combination of private-access seminars and 1-1 mentoring to help you understand each of the 12 Triggers and then establish appropriate marketing strategies and tactics for your firm. Meeting privately at a neutral location or using common virtual meeting platforms, we will address one of the 12 Triggers every other week.
Q: What are the 12 Triggers?
A: The 12 Triggers are a time-tested and reliable marketing flywheel that professionals can use to boost their marketing results by disrupting the status quo in their marketplace. Much like a staircase takes you from one floor to the next, each of the 12 Triggers builds upon the one before to establish a powerful and reliable marketing machine.
Q: What makes the 12 Triggers so important to marketing success?
A: If you look around at your competitors, you’ll see that most professionals are making their marketing decisions based on guesswork rather than science. Sure, some are using helpful tools to manage their marketing campaigns, but very few have a comprehensive and reliable marketing flywheel that guides their decisions from A to Z. As a result, most marketing efforts have a high degree of risk and failure. The 12 Triggers provide a critical framework for all marketing decisions. Once understood and applied, much of the risk is eliminated and the firm can focus their marketing resources more effectively and efficiently.
Q: You talk about "Piñata Marketing." What do you mean by that?
A: “Piñata Marketing” is a term we coined many years ago to describe the erratic approach used by unprepared professionals (and entrepreneurs) who blindly swat their marketing stick at a piñata bag of random tricks and tactics which they hope will spill abundant riches with just the right stroke. Sadly, they often waste energy and completely miss the mark as they flail about. That wild and unfocused tendency causes them to miss key opportunities and fall short of their true potential, resulting in significant loss of wealth (and even failure). BizTrek's 12 Triggers help prevent that from ever happening!
Q: When is the right time for BizTrek?
A: Typically, there are three indicators that highlight a need to rethink your marketing methods.
1) Stagnation - Your growth has slowed to a crawl. You’ve hit a “growth ceiling.”
2) Performance - Your marketing efforts are performing below expectations.
3) Disappointment - You’ve lost one or more major clients, big contracts, or important opportunities.
Q: How do I begin?
A: If you’re frustrated and think we might be a fit, please contact us about your situation. No obligation. No pressure. Just a chat.
Q: Is there anyone else like BizTrek?
A: We don't know of another similar option. There are certainly lots of savvy marketing gurus around the world, but we’re not aware of a similar approach to learning and deploying a proven marketing flywheel. The core difference is that most advisers still fall into the piñata trap of "make it up as you go" thinking based on limited track records across a few ventures. Such folks often cannot consistently replicate past successes. They may be delightful people and have good insights, but they don't have a proven system that delivers reliable results across diverse industries, communities, and scenarios. We do! BizTrek's processes have been applied in hundreds of different places and situations with consistent and reliable success.
Q: How long has BizTrek been around?
