How’s business? Typically speaking this is right in the hotspot of the year. We’re past Christmas, the kids are back to school and the year is well underway. Assuming you’ve got all your marketing in place, business should be cranking – people are looking to get things done!

Now is the perfect time to be listening to your clients and prospects. What are they asking for? What are their biggest problems and how can you solve them?

It’s not enough to build your business and think “ok I’m done – time to coast.” You need to be constantly evolving. You need to create new products, try new marketing methods and continue to improve the customer experience.

Far too often business owners get complacent – they get stuck on one particular traffic tactic or one product – but business changes and the best thing you can do to stay ‘current’ is to listen to your clients.

In fact, I’m working on a new product (right now) in our business based on being repeatedly asked “what’s working in SEO now?” and “What are the strategies you’re applying for your clients?” You see, one of my talents is to skate to where the puck is going to be, rather than where it is now.

So, to answer the questions and document everything, I’ve decided to run a small 1 day workshop here in Melbourne detailing step-by-step what we’re doing.

I hesitate to call it “The SEO Method 4” since SEO has changed and it’s much more than SEO. Anyway, if you’re keen to be in the room, just reply back to this email and say “keep me in the loop about your next workshop” and I’ll let you know when I have more details.

And in the meantime, I’d like to ask you: “What have you been holding onto that you could let go of in your business and what’s something new you could try (based on your customer feedback)?

Responsive businesses win.
