Summary and Conclusion

I use this worksheet as part of a strategy discussion with people who are looking to get started or get moving a bit faster.  I find that the discussion usually leads us to a few immediate action items along with a stronger understanding of strategies that will be most effective.  So that’s what’s in the…

Metrics – Measuring Your Progress

Last thing in the worksheet is metrics.  You need to have a way to measure whether you’re being successful.

Online Directories – Make it easy to be found

Social Media Posting – Stay in front of you audience regularly

Unique Selling Proposition – You need to stand out

Your unique selling proposition is how you present yourself in a way that’s going to be totally different than everyone else.

Your Domain Name – www.domain.com

One of the specific things that Anastasia asked about was a domain name. “Do I need a domain name?” and they’re kind of two answers to that. The simple answer is yes, you need a domain name. I’m not sure when you need a domain name, but you need to have a plan for your…
