Are you experiencing a plateau in your business strategy software company’s growth and product strategy? If so, you’re not alone. Many of your competitors have experienced challenges with customer attrition and growth after a previous spike in sales.
The good news is, this is completely normal. Not only is your situation something that nearly every other business software company has dealt with, you can view it as a necessary evil. By leveraging these dips in retention and growth, you can discover some of the holes in your company’s business model and emerge stronger than ever.
Many business software companies find themselves running into similar problems after the first few years in business. Even if you’ve experienced a surge of success during your company’s genesis, you might start to feel that success starting to plateau.If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, you might be too focused on the current state of your company instead of its future successes.
- Do you face a growing challenge to outperform agile startups?
- Do you experience challenges to grow revenue from your most recent SaaS products?
- Are customer attrition numbers going up?
- Is it harder and harder to attract new talent than retain your key people?
- Do you experience diminishing levels of differentiation?
The Problem: Competing Instead of Others Instead of Yourself
One of the largest challenges business software companies face is the race to beat out their biggest competitors. If you find yourself struggling to keep up with both large companies and agile startups, you’re probably too focused on other businesses — when you should be more focused on your company’s future.
Your route to success isn’t going to look the same as anyone else’s. The value your company can offer your clients is unique. What is your company’s point of difference, and how can you leverage your POD to stand out amongst your competitors?
The Solution: Envisioning a Better Version of You
If comparison is the kiss of death, your saving grace will be to create the best possible version of your own company.
What are your company’s strengths? How can you leverage industry trends to stand out? Where do you see your company in the next three years, and how can you leverage your value drivers to reach your goals as soon as possible? Aside from your company’s tech, what core values set you apart from the competition?
By focusing on your company — instead of your competitors — you can unlock the true potential of your business and focus on the future instead of your past success or present plateau.
