As we approach fall, it marks the beginning of the fourth and final quarter of the year for many entrepreneurs. And fall is a great time to assess your business to find out if it is on the right track to hitting its end of year numbers.
Fall also marks a time for many business owners to revamp or tighten up their business strategy, especially after a relaxing summer. But this year has been different. This year has thrown us many curve balls and unexpected challenges.
This year has been especially challenging for many businesses that have managed to survive the last couple of months. Even with this survival, many businesses do not see a way to achieve their end of year financial target. But don't just accept things as they are.
As an entrepreneur, you’re fully responsible for the growth and success of your business. So if you are approaching the end of the year and you have not hit your financial benchmarks or any other goals for your...
One of the ways that I grew one of my first companies was by self publishing a book, and it was really powerful. As a matter of fact, this book sold copies everywhere.
Still to this day, that company, the secondary business that I own called Baby Planner Inc. leads the industry in business consulting for companies that market to new and expecting families.
And the reason why I still have that reach and notoriety in that space is because I started out by self publishing a book on my expertise in that niche.

But in most cases, these leads may not become customers right away, and they may need more time to get to know your brand and what you have to offer.
This is where a digital marketing funnel will be essential to your company. A marketing funnel is a great way to improve your sales as it will allow you to build some sort of relationship with your customers.
A marketing funnel is a series of online pages and actions that bring new users into your site so that you can capture their information and build a relationship with them for future sales.
A marketing funnel should not be confused with a sales funnel. Even though the structures of both tools are the same, the end results of each are what makes them fundamentally different. A marketing funnel is used to generate leads for future sales and a sales funnel is used as a...
The truth of the matter is that digital marketing is always changing. Can I get an "amen"?
