By: Get2YourBest Fri, 07 Jan 2011 19:39:08 +0000 Stephanie… I would clarify on tip #3 – I know some really smart people, but business can be a different animal. I would use the term “successful” instead – and of course, that’s a subjective term, but hang out with successful people and do what they do.

Nice article. I would add that the business should do a thorough review of the current customers to understand who the favorite or target customer is and what the pain point is. See tip #4 below

Great article!

Good post – thanks.

I think the key is number 5 – measure, measure, measure.

It’s easy for us marketing types to get seduced by shiny new objects and try new things, without considering whether its a good investment of our time and money. Not all measurements need need to be quantitative or based on expensive research; sometimes it’s as simple as taking a little time to consider objectives and results.
