#56 – Only The First Million

By | Jerry's Notes

Someone once told me that… ONLY the first million is hard to make. After you made your first million, things will be a lot easier! So when I started my business, I set my eyes on getting that milestone. I didn’t know yet that time how to achieve it, but I believed that it’s possible. […]

By | Jerry's Notes

Last night, I shared with my students in the Startup Blueprint Masterclass the 10 Pricing Strategies that I use in our different businesses… It was a very interesting discussion that changed their perspective about pricing. 🙂 One of the concepts I shared is the “Price Cliff”… I told them that generally, customers perceive value in terms […]

#54 – Use The Power of Free

By | Jerry's Notes

Who wants free products? Everybody! That’s why many marketing books were written solely on the concept of giving away free products and services. One of the books, Predictably Irrational, describes a series of simple experiments that offered chocolates – at a variety of prices. The first experiment offered people a truffle for 15 cents (about […]

#53 – Advertise In Facebook

By | Jerry's Notes

In 2008, I started playing with Facebook. I instantly liked how easy it is to use and how it enables me to connect with my friends and family members. Grabe, walang sinabi si friendster that time, hehehe. 🙂 Little did I know though, that Facebook will soon become one of my favorite tool to promote my […]

#52 – Reprimand Employees in Private

By | Jerry's Notes

One of the common fears of new entrepreneurs is managing employees. How do you motivate them? How do you correct their mistakes without them feeling that you are picking on them? Well, it’s really hard to manage employees and deal with all their emotions… One thing that helped me though, is this simple principle: “Praise […]

Do you want to put your brand in the mall? Yesterday, I posted a photo of our Leapreneur member, Ton, who opened his first-ever branch is SM North Edsa for his company, RedSplash.

#49 – Use Retail Stores as Advertisements

By | Jerry's Notes

It’s a huge investment to open a retail store. We need to pay for the rental deposit, hire people, stock up inventory, and even get a contractor to construct the store or kiosk. Then, operating it is also not an easy task either. We need to monitor the employees and ensure they are making enough […]

#48 – Sell Online

By | Jerry's Notes

Last year, I was looking for a steel cable that I will use to build my own DIY zipline in our farm. But I didn’t know where to get it… So just like what most people do these days when looking for something, I ask Mr. Google. The search led me to OLX, a local […]

#47 – Build the Right Company Culture

By | Jerry's Notes

The easy way to manage your business is to cultivate the company values in your employees and build the right culture. Why? Because when you have established the company values and the right culture, you don’t have to constantly remind your employees to do their responsibilities and deliver their objectives. It’s like the powerful “invisible […]
