I was recently asked, "What's your number one top tip for new business owners just starting out?"
There's a reason I'm in the business I'm in!
...so it's probably no surprise to learn that my top tip for new business owners is:
You need a website in today's business age. (You're probably thinking, "I already knew that.")
And you want to make sure that it properly represents you, your brand and your message to your audience. People will totally judge your whole company on your website, whether that's fair or not. So you want to make sure it looks professional, operates on the majority of devices, and really speaks to your audience - their wants, needs, abilities, situations and pain points.
But here's the main piece of my tip for you today -- you want to FULLY OWN and CONTROL your website.
I'm SO excited to announce my new FREE Video Series!
Do you use a website for your business? I've got several ideas that not only will help your website, they'll help your whole business!
I created a free on-demand video workshop that walks you through a system guaranteed to help you find some hidden treasure!
You can't ask your friends / audience on Facebook to LIKE, COMMENT or SHARE on your posts and videos any more...!?
If you do, they suppress your posts, and hide them!
Even inside your videos! ...They are listening for those keywords, so you can't even SAY them!
Most business owners don't even realize that their business is being listed on dozens of online website directories... often with information that is WRONG and HURTING their Google rank and SEO!
For 150 years, the yellow pages were the go-to source when you needed a business or service. So when you opened your business, you got yourself into the yellow pages, and you were prepared to pay something a month to do it because that’s where everybody went to find that business or service.
Maybe that's how you feel?
You know you're supposed to do more with social media for your business, but you just don't know where to start? There are so many different channels and you already feel like you're overwhelmed and have no more time for another thing!
...CJ and GilbertStudios are here!
Let me guide you through the jungle of social media one step at a time!
I always tell my clients to have a blog because it's so good for their website and their business!
I guess it's time I should have one!
A blog is the perfect place to get your message out to the world!
The blog has replaced the syndicated column in the local newspaper and allows anyone to have their own publishing platform to share their services, their products, their teaching and their message with the world!
