Review: Geru – Online Business Strategy & Planning Tool
Do traditional “Business Plans” confuse the heck out of you? They sure do me. The main reason is because they all want you to “forecast” or “best guess estimate” what your sales and profits will be.
How the heck am I supposed to know that? Besides which, there’s a lot of math involved in coming up with those kinds of numbers .. and math has never been my strongest subject.
Needless to say, I never quite got around to creating a business plan.
Until I discovered Geru.
Geru is an online business planning and strategy tool for growing your online business or starting a new business. It is SaaS (Software As A Service) tool which will walk you step-by-step through setting up a business model & setting financial goals. Simply enter your business details and metrics, and the software will auto update so you know exactly how many units of X you need to sell to reach your financial goal. It also takes into consideration your expenses, so you’re getting real numbers, not just a “best guess.”
There’s also a Blueprint Library which will blow your mind. This is the #1 feature that had me hitting the Buy Button. Say you’re an Affiliate Marketer, and your goal is to reach $100k. There’s a Blueprint to get you $100k as an Affiliate Marketer in the Internet Marketing niche. You enter in your products and their prices. You tell it how much you’re thinking about spending on Facebook (or any other ad platform) and the software will show you how to reach your goal. There’s a Blueprint to get you to $250k in the Dog Training info products niche. Into Business Coaching? There’s a Blueprint to get to you $400k. There are currently 21 full on Blueprints you can model your business on to reach your financial goals.
That’s what sold me. Geru took the guess work (and math) out of the equation. (Pun intended)
My next favorite feature is the To Do Database. I simply pick my business model blueprint, enter in my personal business numbers and then I’m given a complete list of things To Do to build my business. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
There are simply so many exceptional features to this software that I couldn’t possibly do it justice. Modeling, To Do Database, Create Charts and Reports, Set up Split Testing, Simulate a Product Launch, Plan your Traffic Campaigns, Create Multiple Scenarios by Changing Your Metrics .. and so much more.
I could go on for days telling you about the incredible features Geru has to offer .. but I won’t. I will simply very strongly suggest that you see it for yourself. Then come back and comment on how long it took YOU to hit that Buy Button ..
