Q: How do I know if BizTrek's 12 triggers are right for me now?
A: We certainly have a lot of raving fans who have deployed our 12 Triggers system ... but the best way to know when the time is right will be reflected in your revenue growth pattern. If revenues have flatlined (you've hit a growth ceiling), then you might be wise to consider the importance of rethinking your fundamental approach to marketing. If you've been a Piñata Marketer in the past, then perhaps it's time to shift towards a Scientific Marketing mindset. That would be the time you need us!
P.S. There is also one other situation when the 12 Triggers system becomes extremely valuable to entrepreneurs. That time is when they begin thinking of selling their business. Many such entrepreneurs are surprised and disillisioned when their CPA informs them that the company is not worth as much as they hoped for (or need). The reason is that too much of the company is directly connected to the owner ... and any prospective buyer would (and should) be concerned about that. Rather than get trapped in your business, the smartest way to boost value and income quickly is to shift revenue production to a Scientific Marketing process that any potential acquirer would feel confident they could continue ... with or without the prior owner engaged.

Q: What Do You Mean By "Piñata Marketing"?
A: Piñata Marketing is a term we coined many years ago to describe the approach used by unprepared entrepreneurs (and/or their sales managers) 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 means they often miss key opportunities and fall short of true potential, resulting in significant loss of wealth (and even failure). BizTrek's 12 Triggers help prevent that from ever happening!
Q: What is Scientific Marketing so important?
A: We believe that many startups and promising businesses would be worth much more money, and provide much more profit to the owners, if they simply knew how to stop the "Piñata Marketing" guesswork and use Scientific Marketing processes like the 12 Triggers to make better marketing decisions.

Q: Is There Anyone Else Like BizTrek?
A: There are certainly lots of excellent business gurus in this world. Marketing advice, opinions, and options abound! However, most of those experts typically fall into the piñata trap of "make it up as you go" thinking based on their personal experiences across just a few business ventures. These advisers may provide wise counsel, but they really don't have a proven scientific formula that delivers reliable results across diverse industries, scenarios and continents. We do! BizTrek's 12 Triggers have been applied in hundreds of different industries with consistent success. The 12 Triggers put businesses on profitable CRUISE CONTROL quickly and easily. We don't know of another similar option.
