The Mathematical Model of Business
( The most important Biz Equation )
We have certain equations in Business, which when implemented, can see revenue and profit rise.
Equation 1 Profit = Revenue – ( Fixed Cost + Marketing Exp + Variable Cost* Volume )Equation 2Revenue = Products* VolumeEquation 3Volume = Number of CustomersWe find for every rupee invested in marketing, there will be a 400% rise in revenue and 100% rise in profit. So we have to invest in Marketing. Marketing is the life blood of business !Profit = (P*V)-( Mexp + FC + VC* V ) P = Product V = VolumeMexp = Marketing ExpenditureFC = Fixed CostVC = Variable CostSo for Revenue = (P*V) to rise, we have to increase Marketing Expenditure ( Mexp ), as Volume ( no of customers ) is directly proportional to Marketing Expenditure !
We find that the most important business equation is V = f(M) where V is Volume or the number of customers is a function of Marketing expenditure. Success is verily dependent on Marketing. Well, Marketing can take you from obscurity to omnipresence ! 90% of our time and 70% of our budget should be spent on Marketing, as advertising is the lifeblood of business.
