Sometimes, things move so fast in a blog that you might not catch the larger story arc. I write a new post every day (sometimes more than one a day), so that doesn’t help you, either. Over the last several days, I put together a lot of posts that I think give you ingredients for your own pursuits. That’s what I do here: give it away so that you can do something with it. I thought I’d go back over a handful of the most recent posts and show you what I mean.
Evaluating Your Business Ideas – I wrote this as a helpful way to think about your new business ideas. I was hoping it would stir up some good counterbalance to your enthusiastic plans. Read the comments for added benefits.
How to Compete – Along with the above-mentioned post, this gives you a chance to think further about how you’ll differentiate your business, and how you can bring your idea to the fore in a busy, attention-starved world.
5 Things Small Business Owners Should Do Today Online – This might help you as a consultant, or it might help you realize what I think has to go in place when you launch a new business today, should you feel a social media footprint is required. I would do these steps for most any business of my own that I launched.
The Building Blocks of Social Media for Business – These are the core elements of what I believe a company might consider before starting into social media, and there are some ideas here not covered by the previous post.
Community Can Be SO Powerful – To me, community is how you can do it all. You might not be able to launch the product or company or service with a built-in community, but you can rely on your community to help the idea launch and grow. Have you built a strong series of relationships and a group of eager participants? If not, start now.
Driving to Sales – Over the coming months and into next year, one of the things I’ll tackle a lot more on my blog and in my writing is sales for the new world. There are many better salespeople out there, and I’ll refer to them frequently (as their advice is definite gold). My thoughts will help frame how I think human business works with regards to sales.
