You start your day with: Working out
You end your day with: Spending time with family and friends
When a problem arises, you approach it by: Being head on, find out everything about the problem, brainstorm possible solutions, pick the one that seems like it would be most effective, and then take action.
How do you promote your business? Explain your worst and best strategies you’ve implemented.
Which channels were the most effective in reaching your customers? Why?
The most effective channels so far have been LinkedIn and In-Person networking, because this provided the right audience, with the shortest amount of time to a face to face or phone/video meeting appointment, which helped to build rapport the quickest. Once rapport was/is established, it becomes much easier to have a conversation with them about their needs and how we may be able to help, whether through something we offer, or one of our referral partners.
Fighting against the clock is a constant battle. We all have 24 hours in a day, but there are some days that those 24 feel like 4.
