Business success lessons from Gangnam Style music video
Ask any entrepreneur, they will tell you that there is more to business success than just the business ideas. Business success entails other factors such as business marketing, execution and others. Below are really good business success lessons entrepreneurs can learn from PSY and Gangnam Style music video.
No matter how good, great or profitable your business idea and innovative thinking might seem to be, your business will still need to get your customers engaged in order to be successful.
Just as Gangnam Style music video is catchy and encourage viewers to participate or even do their own parody, businesses need to make their customers participants rather than just customers.
There is the need to make your customers feel like they are part of the business. This can be done through catchy and incentive activities like raffle draws.
#2). Change of environment
At times, location of your business might have a huge impact on how successful it becomes. PSY could not make it happen in America probably because the market is over-crowded and it’s more about who knows who.
But what did he do? He returned home and gave it another attempt which later proved to be a smart move. What your business required to be a successful business could be a change of environment, give it a try!
#). Don’t give up
Yes! Don’t give up even if you failed to record success at the initial stage. PSY was unable to make it happen in several attempts in the US, but that did not put him off either.
Most of the successful entrepreneurs have also gone through the “initial stage problems” but because they did not give up or surrender, they were able to record success eventually.
#4). Business execution
No business idea can turn out to be a success without effective and efficient business marketing and the way it’s executed. What usually makes a business successful is the way the business ideas are executed.
You may have envisioned this great and profitable business idea but what will give you an edge above others in your niche market is the way you execute your business.
PSY’s Gangnam Style music video was executed in a way that it’s fun, trendy, catchy and everyone including the “titans” in music industry wants to see it.
