11 Dec The ‘‘It’’ Factor?
By Adesola Adegun
Does your business have the IT factor?
Like the chimes of a bell, it is distinct, distinguishable and recognizable?
It sets your business apart without seeming like you are trying
As an entrepreneur, a lot of people will have similar or even same ideas you have, your strategies might even be so similar, it feels ridiculous
It doesn’t come as a surprise then when at certain meetings, you hear someone say the exact things you’ve embedded in your mind or when you see your competitors implement ideas you have crafted in your mind or written down in your personal journal.
No matter how “the same” or similar your ideas are with someone else’s, the execution will always be different
Why? Because of IT
The IT factor in your business is what will differentiate you and distinguish you, it is what will make you stand out and be successful in your business
Your ‘’It’’ Factor is not an illusion or something so dramatic or what you find only in movie stars
Your IT factor is your:
- Added advantage
- Selling point.
- Your uniqueness
- What makes you different?
- What sets you apart?
It could simply be the way you address your clients, your mode of operation, delivery, customer care services.
