Are you experiencing any of the following problems?
As owners and/or senior management personnel of an agency, you often tend to get caught up in the day-to-day routine of running your agency. Payroll problems, billing issues, A/R and A/P management, and scheduling issues for assignments and personnel are only a few of the day-to-day issues that tug at your precious time.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, there has been a phenomenon in the security profession that most business owners did not anticipate. In the months immediately following 9/11, most agencies noted a sharp spike in their business, adding to existing security forces, more pre-employment screening and general investigations, etc. However, within the past few years following 9/11 the unexpected occurred that additional business has generally gone away. As they say, "time heals all wounds," and the sense is that many have forgotten the carnage of 9/11. Combined with an unstable economy and war in the Middle East, we are witnessing a time when most businesses are cutting back staff, resources and simply not spending money.
Management, marketing and sales in the security profession is a full-time business, therefore it needs full-time attention to be successful. As noted, most agency owners and senior managers are spending more of their time fighting internal fires than paying attention to growth. All agencies will experience some sort of attrition of existing business for a variety of reasons. It is extremely important in today's economy to stay ahead of the curve by vigorously pursuing new business to maintain and increase your current market share. "If you are not growing, you are falling behind."
