“So, are you in sales?” Some say Business development is sales, some say it’s a partnership, and the startup folks say its hustling. Ever wondered what Business development exactly is? It reminds one of the ways physicists seek to explain what exactly is the “universe”?
To put it in simple terms Business Development is the ideas, initiatives and activities business owners implement to make their businesses better and more fruitful. It is the creation of long-term values for a prestigious organization. The question asked, in the beginning, is not exactly wrong, but it is very vague. Business development is all about sales, business growth, business expansion, strategic partnerships, and increased profitability.

- People cannot buy or recommend your services if you are not there, right? This brings us to building networks online and offline. Building a strong network is particularly important in this generation where everything happens with the click of a mouse on social media.
- Be consistent and do something related to your business every single day. For instance, take a look at our real estate business. Dubai is a hub for beautiful estates and properties undertaken by world-renowned developers. Our real estate agents focus on new business efforts every day and make sure that your home-buying process is a blissful experience.
- The pace at which the world and technology are evolving is rapid and it is imperative to stay up to date with the latest developments and trends. It is ideal to keep ahead of the competition.
- Gaining knowledge is the first step to sharing it. Sharing knowledge is equally important in a professional sphere. Creating content is great but sharing it on as many platforms as possible is the key to attracting prospective customers.
- Make an effective full-proof plan for your business. Any business whether big or small needs to understand and plot out the main task to generate a new construction business.

- Understand the demographics revolving around your sales audience. Get to know the benchmark of your market and focus your sales strategies around it.
- Setting a budget is really a challenge but if the financial plan of your business development is greater than the expected return, you will know in advance before you overspend and actually slow down your business.
- Develop a commendable social media presence. Build trust and brand awareness through Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube etc. You can use this to get a better idea of your target audience.
- Lastly, keep your expectations realistic. We all want to reach great heights and become successful, but this requires years of purposeful initiatives and growth plans.
