Here are two uncomfortable truths you might not like…

Firstly, if you want a Recruitment or Search Business that stands out in your market instead of blending in, you want to attract the best clients and charge the fee’s that your service actually deserves… If you want your ideal clients to seek you out above all other options.

You have to do things differently to what everyone else in your market is doing…. It’s the only thing that makes logical sense…

This makes most Recruitment and Search Business owners extremely uncomfortable, but you can’t want to be “different” but then act the same…

The second truth is, the very moment you decide to do that,

In fact, the very moment you share the thought of deciding with someone…

You’re going to be criticised… It just comes with the territory.

It could be from peers, friends, sometimes even employees, almost always competitors, occasionally family members too…

Again, this makes most Recruitment and Search Business owners extremely uncomfortable…

But it’s important to remember that every critic has his or her own agenda, whether conscious or subconscious… It’s never about you, it's always about them and how you changing makes them feel…

So you can either care more about their feelings and do nothing, or you care more about your own results and step up to the plate…

There’s no right or wrong, just know there’s no point in you clicking the link below and if care more about being liked than you do about actually seeing significant results in your Recruitment or Search Business…

Occasionally I’ll speak to Recruitment and Search Firm Owners who’ll say thing like…

“I have too many clients; I don’t need any more” OR “I have no problem finding clients, it’s candidates I need.”

I used to be impressed by this…

But I’ve come to realise that 9 times out of 10 when a Recruitment or Search Business Owners (or consultant) says this, what they really mean is, they’re working on lots of contingency job orders…

This will annoy a lot of people… But let’s not kid ourselves…

Winning a contingency assignment is not the same as winning a sale…

Unless it’s exclusive, “clients” you work with on contingency are not really your clients…

In the same way, a guy or girl dating multiple people including you isn’t really your boyfriend/girlfriend…

And even if it is exclusive… There’s no guarantee you’re ever going to get paid…

The only thing you’re guaranteed is more work…

You don’t have “too many clients” you’re just doing too much work…

And unless your fill rate is 100%, often you’re not even being paid for it….

Making a sale involves an exchange….

Usually a service or product in exchange for money…

That’s why the most profitable and cash-rich Recruitment and Search Business Owners work on retainers…

They get paid upfront for any work they do…

And if you want more revenue and profits in your Recruitment or Search business AND for less work. You should be too…

Anyone can win a job order; there’s little skill involved…. That’s why Recruitment and Search Business Owners happy to work on contingency assignments are faced with the most competition…

Are stuck working with “clients” who don’t value their services…

Are forced to lower their fees…

Find themselves overworked and underpaid…

Always worry about cash flow…

Don’t know where their next sale is coming from…

Have a team of consultants who underperform and aren’t as profitable as they should be…

And wonder why they’re not making the revenue they want… Even though they have “too many clients”…

The solution is to work with clients who value your services, are willing to pay your fees upfront, are willing to work with you and only you because they believe you’re the best, are happy to have you guide them through the process rather than boss you around telling you how to do your job…

I was read online recently that only 29.44% of people who attempted to climb Mount Everest between 1922 and 2006 actually made it to the top…

Most failed!

Some even died….

Which might not surprise you, I mean… It is the tallest mountain in the world, so I bet getting to the top is actually quite hard…

But here's something that you may not have considered…

In today's business world, 80 businesses out of 100 go out of business in the first five years (and then in the five years after that, of the 20 survivors you'll have just four left... )

And then five years after that, you're down to just one….

In other words, there's a 99% chance of you going out of business in the first 15 years of operation….

That means only 1% actually get past the 15-year mark… and even then….

Survival doesn't necessarily mean profitable, does it?

So it's statistically easier to climb Mount Everest than it is to run and build a highly profitable business that runs for more than 5 years…

You might be thinking… OK, but what does this have to do with my Recruitment or Search Business specifically…

Well… Most people would never consider climbing Mount Everest alone…

You'd get help, a Sherpa, a guide, someone who knows the fastest route, someone to keep you safe, someone to stop you from freezing to death…

Even if you're an incredibly experienced climber, you're probably going to want to take along a buddy of some sort with you…

Not doing so would significantly increase your chances of failure… And even death!

Or at the very least it would simply take you a lot longer to reach your destination…

Makes sense right?

But here's the thing….

Even though running a highly profitable Recruitment or Search Business is HARDER than climbing Mount Everest (the numbers prove it), most people STILL attempt to do it without the right help and support…

And then they wonder why they can't attract enough of the right clients, struggle to command the fees they want and deserve and fail to take their business to the level they want it to be…

I've seen some of the most skilled recruiters struggle in business for years all because they didn't get help, or didn't get the right help…

On a more personal level, my first Search Business failed, had a negative impact on my marriage and a negative impact on my first son all BECAUSE I didn't seek out the right help…

And the little "help" that I did get was from the wrong people…

I don't want you to make the same mistake…

It doesn't have to be me but get some help and support in the areas your weakest in…

And if you want help with your marketing and sales, so you and all your team members can consistently attract and speak to between 15-25 decision makers every single month (who actually want to buy your services) without cold calling, click the link below and let's talk…

Something that most Recruitment and Search Business Owners aren't aware of… Or are aware of but don't like to admit publicly…

Is that even though we can get great results for our clients, we can sometimes be really bad at employing the right people for our own business…

Almost every week I speak to Recruitment and Search Business Owners who have employed a consultant who promised the world but didn't deliver and actually ended up costing the business money…

Based on the numbers given to me by the people I've spoken to… On average every Recruitment or Search Business has a third or more of the team that's underperforming and haemorrhaging profits for the owner…

Another third doing 'OK' and just about breaking even….

And only the final third actually delivering on a consistent basis and making PROFIT…

So in a team of three fee earners, only ONE is likely to be delivering on a consistent and regular basis…. (that "one" is most likely going to be the owner of the business) …

And even a team of 10 fee earners will only have 3 who are actually profitable …

These numbers, of course, vary massively from business to business… But based on the Recruitment and Search Business Owners I've asked, this is about average…

And it's big problem… And one that needs fixing IF you have dreams or ambitions of building a profitable team…

In my opinion… This problem doesn't happen because the owner is bad a recruiting for his or her own team…. It happens because they bring people in too early...

There are a few vital things you need to have in place BEFORE you even think about hiring your next consultant.

And not having these things in place increases the chances of any new consultants underperforming and costing the business money… I explain what these things are this podcast
