Tips for Making 2019 Your Best Business Year Yet!

Tips on how to make 2019 a great year for your business

“Don’t forget about the people who have supported you at your lowest point. They believe in you so you need to believe in you too!” ~ Marisa Cali

“Make sure you are building a business and not just a job. I.e. don’t get so caught up in the current details that you forget long-term goal revisions at year markers.” ~ Leigh Covington

“Make a plan! Don’t go into the New Year without an idea of what you’re going to promote and what your goals are. It’s very hard to get consistent, predictable results on social media when you just wing it. And, just for the record, “I’ll decide what to post every morning” isn’t a plan.” ~ Ysmay

“Be yourself, your real self. Not the I’m posing for a photo or being fake surprised so I have something that looks ‘authentic’ to post to IG/FB etc self. Your real self because otherwise, we can tell…we can all tell when you’re faking it. You don’t have to cry online or tell us about all your personal junk but, be real. Comb your hair, brush your teeth, put your best self forward but just make sure it’s you.” ~ Tony Iacoviello

“Keep it real! Attract incredible friends and ideal clients by being your authentic self. Anyone who isn’t into it can keep scrolling 😘” ~ Beth Griffin

“Start using video! It’s the easiest way to connect with your customers and it can easily be cross distributed across all platforms” ~ Desiree Martinez

“Engage with your community and understand how best you can serve them.” ~ Alan Hennessy

“Do something original with marketing, connect with people, because you actually care, people are tired of the old tricks, at least I am, feel like they are just trying to manipulate me and then I’m just not even interested and a bit disgusted. Then once you have interest, follow it up with the best customer care possible to show them you actually do care.” ~ Elmarie Hyman

“Don’t keep chasing new social media platforms. Figure out where your tribe is and get good at that platform. Remember that social is about being social and building know, like, and trust.” ~ Jim Fuhs

“Pick one or two social media platforms and focus on those instead of trying to dabble in all of them at once. Get comfortable with those before you start to scale up your strategies to include more services. Be patient, be diligent… have fun!” ~ Karin Boertmann Polak
