We know it. You are extremely busy. You work your business day in and day out and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to do it all. On the surface it all looks good. You are taking care of the normal things-marketing, client work, speaking engagements, networking, paying bills, and so forth. But, is it really going as smoothly as you think? What about the things lurking in the back-end which might not be as obvious? Is there anything happening behind the scenes costing you clients and money? Look for things you might not be aware of or just don’t have enough time to manage. It’s time to take a few minutes and do a “business check” to see if everything in your business is working as it should.

There are loads of snake oil gurus trying to tell you that social media is the be-all and end-all for business, and you need to spend hours each week participating. But there is no point in having a wonderfully active social media presence if you have loads of friends, none of which spend money or refer customers to your Business profiles. Having a community of friends around you feels great – but they don’t necessarily pay the bills.
Keyword-rich, that is. Blogs are a great way to generate keyword-rich content, especially if you update your blogs each day. In fact, for some smaller businesses, blogs make more sense than hard-to-create web pages. Blog software makes creating a blog almost automatic while the spiders on search engines seem to favour high-quality and often updated keyword-rich blogs.
Visit different sites. Check out the sites for yourself. Decide what you like and don’t like. Some will feel really right to you and others not so much.
Web 2.0 websites are also toting a new sense of web design style! Those hues of blues and oranges, shiny reflective, yet simple buttons, and CSS driven templates, give the web new standards. Your website should definitely implement these new trends, and if they don’t OUTSOURCE a project to a programmer. Ask him to style your website with CSS 2.0! It shouldn’t be very expensive at all.
Lies are bad for business. Your age will be discovered sooner or later. Many people think they look younger than they are – some do – many don’t. Let your pictures and profile speak for themselves. Research has shown that milestone birthdays (40, 50 & 60) have many more users saying they are younger. Some claim this is for searches, but this never works. First you are letting other people search for you where you should be searching for others. Second, when they find out it will not go well and possibly end a relationship.
