Resources for Businesses
There are tools and resources available to business owners that will help them bring more sales and profits. The downside is that most business owners are not aware of the tools and resources, or they are not using them. And the research is clear, when businesses are not using these tools, they are losing money.
Not taking advantage of using email, for example. Or not claiming their listings in online directories like Google+ Local and others. Not having a mobile-friendly website. These are now ‘basic’ marketing mistakes that definitely lose money and are considered “profit leaks” for a business. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that the solutions are very doable and are clearly explained in this guide: 20 Potential Profit Leaks Every Business Should Know About. There isn’t a bunch of “geek-speak” in this brief how-to guide. Most of the solutions can be done by the business owners themselves.
I’m sure that small business owners will find the information in the guide very useful, practical and profit generating.
