Looking at last years revenue compared to this year, we are down from last year. It looks like people are very skeptical of the economy. Well maybe if our government, (state or national) make some changes and cuts, we will start to see a better economy…
Wow – the government just spent another $$$ amount for that project and more $$ for another project. Seriously?
Guess what, it looks like money is still being spent.
What should I be doing?
I have played this scenario over and over. Business is still business. I have talked to a number of business professionals and people/companies are holding on a bit to their money, but from what I am learning is that it means I need to have a better game plan and get in the market even more.
The good news is I am seeing more results, especially in the last couple of weeks. The hard work is paying off and it is showing me that I need to do more and in some cases do more with less. The important part is to make sure I am doing the following:
Getting on people’s radar – See Post
Making money with social media – See Post
Connecting locally and more often – See Post – This has been a huge one for me in 2013!
Brand Videos – See Post – Adding videos and sharing them online and at trade shows is a difference maker.
Revisit your clients – See Post – Another difference-maker in 2013.
I share these items with you, because I am convinced that businesses large and small make the difference in this country. We can’t wait for others to see results, we must press forward with proven techniques and be our own difference-makers in 2013.
