RUNNING A SMALL BUSINESS IN THE PHILIPPINES – SERVICE IS KEY

Running a small Business in the Philippines

running a small business in the philippines

Service is the Key to Success

Many foreigners move to this country and for various reasons decide that running a small business in the Philippines is what they want or need to do. Just like any where in the world, but probably even more so here, small business success stories are few and far between. Even back in the western world, start-ups have an astronomical failure rate, and then you throw in the added complications in this third world country of such things as bizarre and excessive red tape, corruption, inexperience with your target market and cultural differences of local employees, and success in the small business world is a daunting task for even the smartest and most experienced entrepreneur. soldes newbalance So how do you beat the odds if you are firmly committed to the idea of running a small business in the Philippines? My experience so far here is that the key to that is customer service. ugg france Anyone that has spent any time in the Philippines knows very well that the average Filipino just does not understand the concept of customer service. How often do you deal with a business establishment where the front line employees do not know anything about the product or service they are selling? If that were not bad enough, they also just don’t seem to care whether you are going to be a satisfied customer or not. asics soldes Then there seems to be the deer in the headlight type reactions if your needs stray anywhere outside the narrow guidelines set out to them by their superiors. In very few instances do the front line staff have any authority to deal with anything and the prevailing attitude is that they better not take any initiative for fear of reprimand from their boss. In the end , most customers are left with such a bad experience that they will never return let alone refer future prospective customers. Unless of course there is nowhere else to go, which is usually the case since the most basic principle, known the world over, that a happy customer is good for business just seems unknown to business managers and owners here in the Philippines. That reality though frustrating to us as consumers, is a huge opportunity for those of us that decide to be on the “other side of the cash register” I will relate a personal experience that can be a classic example. Here in Dumaguete City there is a long established real estate company who it appeared was basically the only “game in town” for years. When my wife decided that she wanted to become a broker I strongly suggested one of the first things to do was check out the competition to see if there was room for another player in the game. puma basket Upon investigation the common reaction when people were asked about their experiences in buying or selling properties was that yes, indeed this potential competitor had most of the market, but the common thread was that their service sucked in every way. Emails were rarely returned, and when they were, there was little attempt to fully understand the needs of the customer. asics soldes More often than not, clients were told that the inquired about listing was no longer available and then the client was then pitched properties that had little in common to what the clients were actually looking for. moncler paris Sometimes, if clients were looking for a house in the 4 mil range, they were then steered towards properties in the 10 million range.hmmm,, don’t you think if some one wanted or could afford a 10 million pesos property, that they would have made inquiries about ones in that scale? When appointments for viewing were arranged, often agents would show up late or not at all, leaving the potential clients standing around for extended periods of time making phone calls that were not answered. The final icing on the cake was usually that the agents were unwilling or incapable of communicating the intricacies of the transactions they were supposed to be guiding along. Lets face it, if some one is dropping millions of pesos on something, they have a right to understand what s going on and any questions they have answered to their satisfaction. More than one client of this company when interviewed by us, complained that if they asked questions , they were treated as “problem” customers. Enter my wife. The first thing she did was spend close to a year studying tirelessly to learn the intricacies of the real estate industry (and getting her board certification) so that when people asked her questions she could answer them in a knowledgeable way. She has also grasped the concept to not use the excuse “its the Filipno way” and do things in a way that customers really want. To be treated like it is fully understood that a customer that walks in the door is the person that keeps the business , “in business”. Without them , the bills do not get paid, the family does not get fed and there is no money for toys, fancy clothes or vacations. The customer is king ! Without him, the business is nothing! She has found that it is not hard. It only means doing some little things like getting out of her chair when a customer enters, looking them in the eye and shaking their hand. Moncler enfant doudoune pas cher Being attentive when they speak, answering their correspondence or phone calls and showing them the respect they deserve by being on time for appointments. Today, only six months after being in business she is successful beyond her wildest dreams and the future is a rosy as it gets. The number of people who approach her through referrals from previous clients is staggering, and it is in large part simply because she has learned to treat customers better than her more established competitor. So to those business people who are willing to change the status-quo of abysmal customer service in the Philippines, I believe there are opportunities beyond anything you will experience in the West. Here in the Philippines, it does not matter what business is chosen, if you can offer it with good customer service , you will always have a competitive edge in your market because in most cases the competition just does not care how the customer feels.

Small Business in the Philippines

Adapting to New Markets

It of course is only logical for any small business that one of the major keys to success is identifying, reaching and then serving members of your target market. If you are like me, and own or considering operating a small business in the Philippines, then odds are, again like me, you are probably just not that knowledgeable about this new market you are trying to make money in. air max homme Personally, I have spent my whole business life in Canada and through years of experience have been able to get a grasp on who my potential customers are, how to reach them and properly service them so that my businesses could grow organically. At some point it became something that I took for granted. Now that in middle age I have decided to run a business in a completely foreign market, I have been rudely reminded how much I need to relearn and during that re-education I have had to be able to put my ego aside and humbly admit to myself that I am a rookie. moncler 2018 Only then could I start to learn the new realities I am faced with and adapt to them in a way that will give me better odds of financial success. A perfect example of this is a surprise I received when starting our now quite successful tour company here in Dumaguete City. During the planning stages of our setup, I originally thought that the vast majority of our potential customers would be European or North American tourists who were in the mid income range. After a few months of struggling operation, I came to the conclusion that I had missed the boat and my projections about my target market were way off the mark. There were in fact very few middle income Western tourists visiting our shores. Quite honestly, during those first few months there were numerous times I lay awake in the middle of the night staring at the ceiling wondering whether I should pull the plug and move on. nike air max flyknit However one of my character traits , which I feel all small businessmen must possess, is the tenacity to not give up, so I instead admitted to myself my miscalculation and set upon the task of trying to identify alternative markets. Through a lot of research, and yes a fair sprinkling of plain luck, I discovered that the key markets I needed to focus on were completely different than what I originally envisioned. Instead of Westerners in the middle income range, I found that there was huge potential in three other segments. The Chinese, low income westerners on a backpacker’s budget and the Filipinos. bottes ugg Once identified, I changed several things. Canada Goose FR The tours we offered were restructured to include low budget options, we hired some Chinese speaking tour guides, and we started to explore marketing channels to reach those three groups more effectively. The results were staggering and today we have a very profitable small business that is growing by leaps and bounds. canada goose In conclusion, I am of the opinion that one of the major keys in the small business world here in the Philippines is accepting how little we know and that as our businesses progress, our ability to adapt to the new knowledge we are gaining along the way, will be essential to success. bottes ugg soldes Again only logical, but sometimes hard for those of us in middle age that have started to believe we knew it all, lol.

Income Producing Properties in Dumaguete City

Any real estate bought at or below market values is usually a good investment, however if you can add income generating revenue to the equation the net result is usually well above average return on investment. nike air max tavas With rental properties one of the key determining factor to these high ROI’s is vacancy rates. nike air max 1 You just don’t have to have a business degree to understand the logic that the lower the vacancy rate, the higher the revenues and subsequently the higher the returns. moncler pas cher When looking for investment properties, it is important to research carefully the market in which you will be investing. soldes puma chaussure In the case of Dumaguete City, its elevation to prominence on the world stage after being singled out by both Forbes Magazine and Yahoo as one of the top 5 places in the world to retire to, the effect has been dramatic. For years the rental market was stagnant, as the main population influx was seasonal and reflected in the vacancy rates. Timberland Pas Cher During the months of approximately December to April “snowbirds” flocked to the city for temporary stays in warmer climates and at that time it vacancy rates were in the low single digits. However for the remainder of the year it was a tenants market and the rental unit choices abundant. With landlords looking at vacancy rates in the 20-30% for six months of the year, there was little incentive for investors to build new units. With the explosion in popularity of Dumaguete City and surrounding Negros as a retirement destination, the fundamentals of a rental income generating property in the area have changed considerably. Currently, even though we are in what has usually been considerred the slow season, there is a vast shortage of rental units available. Though anything resembling accurate statistics in the Philippines is difficult to obtain, with my wife being in the real estate business, the anecdotel evidence is hard to ignore. On average she will receive upwards of 10-15 concrete inquiries per week and 95% of those she is not able to satisfy. Simply put, the availability of western standard rental units in an afforadable price range is virtually non-existent. timberland soldes As it looks like there will be little slowdown in the exodus to Dumaguete City, the question now becomes, is it a good time and place to be in the rental unit business and the resounding answer is, not a doubt! To those of you who would like to explore this investment option, we can suggest an immediate entry by purchasing an established income property such as those listed below. bottes timberland For others, a second option will be the purchase of a land and the development to custom specifications of a rental units. For those, please feel free to visit our Construction and Development website at NEGROS CONSTRUCTION.COM where we can help you from feasibility study, to design and construction and ultimately rental of your units to responsible tenants.

INVESTING IN PROPERTY

investing in property

Two things to avoid

  1. Being Property Rich and Cash poor

  2. Interest payments that strip away your REAL Return on Investment

investing in propertyWhen thinking about whether investing in property is right for you, I believe the first thing that should be studied is cash reserves. I believe, like many others that if you can get a piece of real estate at a below market price and can afford to sit on it until the time you can sell it for more, it is simply a no brainer, but quite honestly very often I see that simple plan go wrong. asicss neakers pas cher The first case is sometime people do not understand that property is basically a non-liquid asset and the reality is that if you are forced to sell quickly you will almost always not only fail to make a profit, but probably also lose part of your original investment. Being in the Real Estate business , I see first hand every week people who walk in our doors and need a quick sale because they do not have enough cash to meet their obligations. Sometimes they are tragic cases of unexpected illness and medical bills and sometime it is as basic as not having enough money to cover their basic living expenses. doudoune canada goose pas cher Ultimately, if they can even get a buyer, it is for a price reduced to a fraction of what that land would go for in a controlled, non distressed situation. soldes moncler When people do ask my advice about investing in property, the very first thing I tell them is to figure out how much it would cost them to live for a year or two, throw in the costs of an unforeseen incident or two, and what is left is the maximum that they should commit to spending on any non-liquid asset like real estate. soldes timberland The second, but equally important consideration should be whether to buy using credit or installments. This I personally feel is where a lot of people’s logic goes astray. The fact is that when something is bought on credit, the calculation of what is paid for that asset has to include the interest that was spent for servicing the debt on the purchase. Keeping it simple, the cost of that asset is equal to the deposit put down plus all the payments made (which would include interest). To use a very basic example if you were to buy a five million pesos property , put down 25% or 1.25 million and get a mortgage for the remaining at 8% amortized over 10 years, you would end up paying out of pocket approximately 6.7 million. The question becomes whether after 10 years the property has appreciated in value to exceed that amount and more. nike air max 2015 If you were able to get 7 mil (a huge 40% increase in value) you would still only get an ROI of 300,000 for your 6.7 million spent or approximately 1% per annum. timberland Hardly something that would be considered a good investment. moncler 2018 In conclusion I would only like to suggest that if you want to make a good investment in real estate, number 1, always leave enough liquid cash to cover all possible expenditures you will have so you don’t have to sell quickly, and number 2 , the more money of the purchase price you finance, the poorer your return on investment.
