These are really fun strategies! Be careful not getting too caught up holding these sales on holidays and occasions, though. There are unfortunate companies that hold promotions on sensitive issues such as holding sales on 9/11 which are barely even a tribute and more of an offensive approach.

For Content Marketing to be an SEO tactic, you have to “grind” your way through the rankings. But leaving content marketing just the way it is defined, the rewards will come naturally.

A distinctive design is one step closer to a good website atmosphere. It should speak for the company, even without any text, but just through graphics, colors and overall presence.

I agree with your views towards employee behavior, Mark. Sometimes it’s not the employee’s competence that makes them incapable to follow up instructions, but of course it’s not always the case so in order for you to make it all clear there should be proper communication between you and your team. Maybe conducting a meeting about team building can help.

It’s kind of like being physically offline but mentally online. Either we can’t help it or it has become a part of our sub consciousness, which is a funny thing because we our bodies aren’t inherently programmed to use electronics. There’s always a moment when you need to disconnect from the matrix and reconnect back to the real world!

I’m glad to see a more refined segregation of managers being brought up here. An introvert manager can perform just as effective as an extrovert, each have their own style of leadership. It’s important to be aware of what’s in a nutshell! By the way, I’m kind of a “Behind the Scenes” type. :)

Referrals have layers—we mustn’t forget that. In order for conversion to be promising, you need to tap to their inner objectives. Sometimes you think you know what they want, but there is actually more to what you have known.

Thanks for the helpful infographic. We need to utilize the latest web designing techniques and languages to modernize the overall website appearance. There’s hundreds of possibilities of what you can do using CSS and HTML5. Also, the use of flash is decreasing due to HTML5’s compatibility with mobile browsers.

Great post. I think continuing education is a MUST. Even if you run a very successful company, it never hurts to keep up-to-date. Since everything is changing so rapidly, it's almost imperative that we all continue our education through out our entire lives.

I think that finding your target audience is the most important because all of your hard work could go to waste if you don't know who to target. Making sure you are creating engaging content for your targeted audience is big if you want them to keep coming back for more and allow them to share your content with others. Social media marketing is one of the biggest tools for marketers to take advantage of right now and I think you gave some pretty good strategies here Matthew. I really enjoyed reading this!

I mostly agree on micromanaging, this resonates with all the other qualities as this signifies a leader who does not trust his employees to do their job. For instance, cheaping out on equipment does not only give an impression of being conservative but it gives that sense of doubt that you don’t trust them enough to take care of valuable office supplies.

Many say that anyone can be an entrepreneur, which is true, but the harsh reality of pursuing the business industry makes it hard to become a successful one. For beginners, it will be a pain if you have less support, financial aid, solid goals and whatnot. It’s not exactly a fun ride. But of course, it’s always about mind over matter and as what you say, refining your factors on what makes you optimistic.

Beautiful words from Martin Luther King. It is never a withered lifestyle to live through the course of your dreams. We are too distracted racing through time that we forget that what keeps us prisoners is ourselves, and it only takes one big step to take action to what we believe in.

It is also one way to step out of your comfort zone! When opening a door to success, it doesn’t mean you’ll see it right away. There are still numerous other doors to go through, and some won’t even meet to your expectations. But that’s just a part of your challenge, as you will only see your success once you go far enough.

These are really interesting lessons from pop culture. I’d also want to emphasize on The Walking Dead’s philosophy: Fight the dead, fear the living. The “dead” can be the decrease in economy and low ROI, but shouldn’t we be also concerned about our own business culture? What’s important is you must know how to look for ones who have qualified skills and advance the relationship between you and your team.

advice, Rebekah. Social media is not a walk in the park. It is in fact, climbing
a step mountain, and once you get close to the top, you have a bigger chance to
fall far back down and it will hurt. Each platform has its own specialty, and
you’re right that LinkedIn is good for searching for right b2b leads.

Thanks for the informative article. It’s great to see business owners include social media as part of their marketing strategies. One tip I can give is always gather data like number of visitors on a given timeline and know which time of day they are most active. But don’t rely on data alone, because you also need to produce insight.

Thanks for that motivational column, Erika. The only thing that stops us is ourselves. Going out of the comfort zone is never an easy thing to do. Though the first step is the hardest step, it gets you elevated enough to reach out to even higher steps!

This is how we confront our customers. Social media can be a troublesome place but we mustn’t forget that these negative comments are not personal, they only speak of what they think of your service or your product quality. You cannot go beating around the bush because that also reflects to your company’s behavior. We do not want another Amy’s Baking Company.

All these tips are very down to earth! You have to make your personal brand work for you. I can see that some just go way over the top that it shows he’s blatantly full of himself. Honesty really is never old-fashioned, so much more as being humble.
