The Cheapest Marketing Tool That You Already Use

Google reviews are more influential than we think.  They act as social proof, attract potential customers and help build trust in your business.  When leveraged the right way, Google reviews can help drive growth and success.

Client Experience

While attracting clients with your words is important, their actual experience holds greater significance. Your business's strategic plan must align with what you communicate and deliver. When there's a disconnect, clients and team members will sense it, impacting engagement and your ability to attract and retain talent.

Strategic Plan Part 1: Building Your Roadmap for Success

 

Your strategic plan is the roadmap for your business.  Without one, teams become stagnant, fail to see opportunities and become disengaged. A well-crafted plan provides everyone with direction, creates the culture the business needs, guides decision-making, and gets everyone moving in the same direction.

 

Strategic Plan Part 2: Refining Your Roadmap for Success

 

Refinement of the strategic plan is needed to ensure that all four perspectives of the balanced scorecard are incorporated and not forgotten. Once completed the strategic objectives can be created to achieve the plan.
