Is your marketing really working for you? How do you know for sure?
Back in our schools days we got the end-of-year report card to tell us (and mom and dad) how well we were doing, but as entrepreneurs, all we have is our revenue to gauge our success.
But is revenue the only way to measure marketing? Isn't that like looking at GPA but not the whole academic (and activity) picture to measure what you've learned?
Are you ready to find out what's working--and what's not--in your marketing so far this year?
There's still time to make adjustments to your strategies and tactics to make 2013 your best year yet, but if you don't know what's really working, and where to make tweaks, you could miss the opportunity to fine-tune your approach before it's too late to make an impact.
Join Veronika Noize, the Marketing Coach, to get an update on your progress in June's Advanced Strategies teleconference: Your Marketing Report Card.

I hope it is GREAT, but if it could be better, NOW is time to do something different.
Because if you keep doing what you've been doing, you're going to get more of the same results. Is that what you want? No? Well, why not DO SOMETHING different?
If you're ready to figure out what to do that's different, and what will really have a positive impact on your business, I suggest you consider rethinking, redoing, rewriting your marketing plan.
Why? Because according to the research I found at the Small Business Administration, the number one commonality of successful businesses is...wait for it...a written (actually written on real PAPER) marketing plan.
NOT a list of ideas in your head.
NOT a random bunch of activities that aren't being tracked or measured in any way.
A WRITTEN (on a piece of PAPER, not just notes in an electronic file) plan that outlines specifically what you're going to do each day to attract, acquire and retain clients, so that you have a steady flow of income, as well as a steady flow of new prospects knocking at your door and a flood of referrals flowing in from your delighted clients.
The truth is that most small business owners aren't using enough of the right strategies to build their businesses, and/or they aren't tracking what works and making adjustments so that what works can work better.
So if you're ready for a change for the better, please do yourself a favor and consider attending my one-day marketing plan workshop, spending one day working ON your business, instead of just in it.
=> If you're done with earning less than you're worth (or what you want)...
=> If you're feeling disappointed with how things are going now...
=> If you're sick and tired of wasting time and spinning your wheels...
Then now is the time to put together the plan to make your success finally happen.
