Branding - Who Are You?

David Knoble, CPA, PLLC

David Kno­ble, CPA, PLLC

A brand is cer­tainly who you are, but do you know who you are?  As a busi­ness of course!  It is easy to come up with a busi­ness strat­egy to gain more mar­ket share, gen­er­ate more cus­tomers, make more money, etc.  But how much of any of these strate­gies do you actu­ally pub­lish for the pub­lic to see?  My guess is ‘none’.  Here we dis­cuss a lit­tle about try­ing to fig­ure out who you are and how to brand that con­cept for the pub­lic.  » Read more about Brand­ing — Who Are You? »

Networking Strategies

Net­works are strings of wires that con­nect com­put­ers to talk.  Net­work­ing is face-to-face com­mu­ni­ca­tion that con­nects peo­ple.  The key dif­fer­ence is that while there is more com­mu­ni­ca­tion being done on net­works and the inter­net than ever before, Net­working is still a face-to-face busi­ness. Sure, leads can be devel­oped online and you can even gen­er­ate prospects from the inter­net, but true cus­tomer gen­er­a­tion is done in a meet­ing where peo­ple can read body­lan­guage and trade information.

Cus­tomer Fly­pa­per is a new blog I found that has tremen­dous infor­ma­tion on net­work­ing and cus­tomer skills.  If your busi­ness depends on peo­ple, as does mine, you need to spend time look­ing at this blog.  » Read more about Net­work­ing Strategies »

Keeping the Helm On Course

As an entre­pre­neur, you daily wear more hats than the aver­age per­son does in a life­time.  If you are suc­cess­ful, then you can jug­gle the dif­fer­ent direc­tions and still main­tain the course for your com­pany.  You also know the value of a good team to help you keep that course.

Unfor­tu­nately, many small busi­nesses suf­fer in one area, no mat­ter how suc­cess­ful they are.  » Read more about Keep­ing the Helm On Course »
