Ahern and Associates understands that there is the necessity to have the proper amount of value. However, statistics gathered by Ahern indicates that nine out of ten times, the value that an owner places on the business will not be reached most often. Also, it is noted by Ahern that the same ratio is taken when it comes to the actual sale as most of the sold companies do not turn up the way they are expected to. Conditionally, it is also noted that a business sold is often one that will no longer be an entity of the original seller. Thus, Ahern wants to make sure that letting go of the business will be a smooth and easy process.
Typically, the transport industry is considered to be one of the largest, and probably one of the most workable industries in the United States. Ahern and Associates works with a diverse market, and they offer a larger market base for their clients and customers. Ahern is a business-consulting firm that works for both the seller and the buyer of the accounts. Typically, most transport and logistics companies that are losing will work best with the services offered by Ahern. They limit their costs and expenses, and they get to have this objective review of the services of the company.
There are many considerations that are looked into by Ahern and Associates when it comes to the sale or purchase of a company. First, Ahern helps the business understand the very reasons for the sale, and there are three things that Ahern looks into. Foremost, the reason for the sale will be to help increase the sale of the company, and will eventually lead to the increase in profits. A second reason for the sale might be the filling in of the backhauls for the freight expenses. Third, the merger or the acquisition of the other company could lead to the potential increase in the driver base, which also helps in the increase in market.
Besides the reason for the sale of the company, Ahern and Associates is also looking for other criteria that will be used for the process. Several of the reasons that Ahern has noted for the sale of the company include the need to increase the sales or revenue, the desire to have additional infrastructure to expand the business, and to have diverse locations to other locations and sections of the country. Often, all of the reasons that most will want to acquire the new company is to make sure they will expand to other cities and states where they could do well in the transport and logistics industry.
As companies are driven in the age of networking, computers, wireless technology, and even telecommunications, it should be clear that these aspects of business are taken advantage, as it does not only hasten the work and lessens operational costs, but it also becomes channels of increased cash flow and profit generation for the market. As Ahern and Associates provide their services for auditing, assessment and evaluation, technologies, research, and communications are also checked to see if the said venture is at par with what most companies are utilizing these days.
Known to be the backbone of operations, whether it may be locally within the business vicinity or outside, networking is one of the most essential items being checked by Ahern and Associates, before it is turned over for acquisition or preparing it for selling opportunities. Why is networking and not end-user peripherals considered as a priority in this evaluation? It is understood that placing devices at the end of the network bridge can be easily accomplished, but establishing a stable and reliable network, where all forms of communication rely, such as advanced phone systems, intranet, internet, wireless user-to-user interaction, can be a lot of work and must be created without compromise or reservation.
Once networks have been checked for both outbound and inbound communication, only then will they focus on various peripherals such as computers, devices, operating systems, particular specifications, quality of units, optimal performance, output generation, and others. It may be a lot of work for professionals at Ahern and Associates, but assuring the almost perfect condition of this particular side of the business can make the company stand on the edge of the market, where it can be easily acquired or sold to different companies, either with the same line of industry, or not. With technology, also comes another part of its growth, which is research and development.
Aside from using computers for the sake of processing operations such as generation of reports, accomplishing paperwork, and interacting to different sources, technology is also used in conducting research, opening avenues for innovation, and creation of new products or ideas. Ahern and Associates also need to confirm if the utilization of these advancements are for the sake of, not only maintaining operations and keeping every aspect of the business intact, but also in venturing to new heights, unexplored potentials for growth, and better development. They tap into these specific fields due to its importance of expansion and even dominance in the market.
I’ve talked with many people who get frustrated with the amount of time they are putting into their Twitter account and the minimal results they are getting from their time investment. Part of blog marketing is pushing your blog links out to your Twitter followers but first you need Twitter followers. So the dilemma is, how do you increase your Twitter following? I recently learned how to easily and effectively amp up a twitter following. I’ll share this with you in three easy steps:
1. Twitter Search: Use twitter search to find people who are active in your industry. Click on their list of twitter followers and start following each of their followers. As you probably know, when you start following a twitter user, they will receive a notification telling them that you are now following. If they find that you are someone they would like to follow in return, they will follow you. This is a great way to let more people know about you who might not have found the opportunity to otherwise. The point of building a twitter following isn’t just to have more followers but the main purpose is to find people who would be interested in what you have to offer.
2. Twellow is a great resource to track your twitter followers and those you are following. When you are completing step 1 of this process you need to keep in mind that there is a ratio of follower to following cap. You must have a certain ratio of people who are following you in order to continue following others. Twellow can help you manage this.
1. The “friends” feature on Twellow can show you who you are following and how many of them are mutually following you. After a day or two of following someone who is not a power tweeter, you can un-follow them in order to make room for others you would like to follow. For instance, I follow Peter Cashmore of Mashable who will probably never follow me but I want to keep following him so I wont’ remove him from my list. On the other hand, when I follow someone who only has 29 followers and they don’t follow me back I will probably stop following them.
2. The “Followers” feature on Twellow allows you to see who is more twitter followers following you in Twitter. You can go through this list and start following any one of your followers who you are not currently following already.
3. Repeat the process. Once you have completed these steps and have built a substantial twitter following you can be more selective about who you follow. Continually repeat the process to find fascinating people to follow and to encourage others to find your excellent content.
