(Guest Post) Effectively Closing Sales Leads

The sales pipeline is one of the most critical components of any business, but the process is often neglected.

Why You Should Decide On One Of These TWO Key Objectives Before Writing Your Blog Post

If you want your blog to work for your business, then you need to have a strategy for publishing content. Too many businesses create a blog without a clear idea in mind about what the purpose is, and that sort of haphazard approach can be really damaging to your business (plus it’s a waste of the time you spend writing your content).

You need to think of blogging as one of your biggest marketing assets for your business. It is a marketing tool that, when done well, can bring you sales. However, in order to use your blog to make sales and grow your business, it’s important that you understand what your big objective is for each blog post. I’ll give you a clue: there are two options. And that’s the subject of this blog post. I’m going to tell you about why you should craft every blog post by deciding on one of two key objectives.

Using Your Facebook Page To Promote Your Product? Here’s Why You Might Be Losing Business

If you’ve been using Facebook for a while to promote your business, then you probably know that Facebook is putting considerable effort into filtering page content to its users, which means you have to be smarter than ever to ensure your followers see your posts. If this is news to you, check out a post I wrote last year on Facebook engagement.

However, what you might not know is that as of January this year, Facebook has rolled out a new change that’s going to make it even tougher for businesses to market to their customers. Here’s what you need to know.

The Fallacy Of Chasing Shadows When Launching An Online Business

Let me ask you a question:

What have you achieved today on your business?

It seems like an innocent question. If entrepreneurs have one thing in common, it’s that we’re dedicated to our cause, so I’m sure your day has been filled with a variety of business tasks.

But working on your business, and achieving something with your business, are two different things. That’s a lesson I learned the hard way, and it’s one I want to share with you in this post.

10 Exciting New Tools On The Market That Make Life Easier For Online Entrepreneurs

The rapid growth of new technology is a real blessing for us entrepreneurs. Running a business online is just getting easier and easier. When I first started working at digital agencies back in 2006 it took months to develop a website, weeks or months to add new features to it, and web design required heavy input from someone hugely skilled in Photoshop. Can you imagine how frustratingly slow it would have been back in those days to adapt your business to an ever-changing marketplace?

I’m always on the lookout for new tools, resources and apps that are designed to make the life of the entrepreneur easier. Here are ten that I’ve been really excited to discover (and no, I’m not affiliated with any of them):

How I Doubled My Email Open Rate Using A Few Simple Tweaks

I see lots of articles about how to increase your email list, and how it can rapidly grow your business. I see the same messages from marketing gurus day in day out, the same promises made (how to grow your list to 1000! 3000! 10000!), many similar statistics quoted. Whilst growing a list is important, much of this discussion seems to overlook a really important factor when it comes to email marketing:

If your subscribers aren’t opening your emails, then your strategy isn’t working

If You’re Getting Visitors To Your Site But No-one Is Buying, Here’s Why

I call it the website launch trap. It’s a problem many entrepreneurs fall into: they spend time and money building their perfect website, fine-tuning their product offering, getting traffic, and then…..wait a minute.

Where are my customers?

It can be so frustrating to an entrepreneur who has put their heart and soul into creating something from scratch. You know you have a fantastic product. You really believe in what they are doing. But people just aren’t buying it. And the longer this goes on, the more you start to doubt yourself:
