A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead their business using Biblical Business Principles.

Biblical Business Principles – Last week we looked at Organizational Structures – Is your organizational structure serving your customers, honoring God, helping employees grow, and not wearing you out?

How you let potential and existing customers know about your products or services and the advantages of doing business with your enterprise is marketing. The Business By the Book Workshop doesn’t attempt to cover the various means and methods of marketing, rather it looks behind your marketing program to the core values.

Regardless of your marketing method, the best long term strategy is to confine your marketing promises to the simple truth and then deliver what you promised.

The LORD despises double standards… Proverbs 20:23a NLT

How narrow is the gap between what your enterprise promises and what is delivered?

One of the statements in the Workshop is: God is the One who ultimately provides for and prospers us. Do you believe this? How will this affect your marketing claims?

Praying you have a blessed Independence Day. As you celebrate our national freedom, remember to celebrate our dependence on our Wonderful God.

Bit of Wisdom
Good people are guided by their honesty; treacherous people are destroyed by their dishonesty. Proverbs 11:3 NLT
