Maybe it would be much better to have focused on profit than sales. What if profit had been the focus instead of sales. What if this could have been the result? บꯠꯠ x 2% = 赨ꯠ profit ũꯠꯠ x 25% = 趚ꯠ profit So when using one or more of these 7 ways to increase profit, the first one (adding more customers) might be the one you want to focus on last. It's probably more expensive Now, if you had your plan completed and it showed what your business needed to do over the next 10 years to give you the salary and profit you wanted, the next thought would be how do I make it happen. Well the best way would be to take it one year at a time. Concentrate on next year first and then choose one or more of 2 through 7 to work on before trying to add customers.
So here is how you would do it: Projected sales = fixed exp (足ꯠ) divided by 1_ƖǑ% + 27ǔ% + 12ǔ% + 25% (your new profit margin) = 造같 (new sales) You can do this for as many years out as you want. Obviously this is based on your first year's fixed expenses remaining constant and no consideration of depreciation, inflation, or taxes. But most likely you would need to increase your fixed expenses because you're going to probably have more rent, utilities, or such as your business grows. So, you would simple put in your new fixed expense number in place of the existing one for each of the years you would be planning for. So, you see if you decided you wanted a 35% profit margin at year 5 then you could see how much sales it would take to give you that. Now it's also important to know how many more customers you would need as well so you should always look at that unless you have another way of growing your sales other than with new customers.
