What are growth initiatives?

When we talk about growth initiatives at Firestarter, we are talking about putting in place plans and actions that are ultimately going to help your business sell more and drive performance improvements such as increased revenue, customer base, and market share.

Many business owners and leaders have lots of great ideas, and fundamentally know what it takes to drive growth in their business. Often, what they don’t have is the bandwidth or resources to make it happen, which is where the Firestarter team come in.

How does a growth initiatives strategy help your business?

At Firestarter our core focus is to develop comprehensive growth initiative strategies that align with your business’s goals and values. Whether we are conducting market research, identifying target markets and customer segments, or determining the most effective growth tactics, our aim is to start executing tactical actions as soon as possible in order to test and measure different approaches.

A successful growth initiatives strategy requires clear communication and collaboration across the organisation, with our extensive experience working with clients for over 10 years allows us to achieve this and take a strategic, clinical approach to help your business accomplish its goals.

Sales growth initiatives require specific tactics aimed at increasing sales and revenue, these include:

The key components of a Firestarter growth initiatives strategy

It usually starts with a sales role, but we’re open-minded – sometimes to drive more sales, you need to fix something else in your business. We always say that making the initial decision is probably the biggest step, admitting that to drive change forwards you need a “leg-up”.
