What is the biggest online marketing mistake that companies make in your opinion? 

The biggest online marketing mistake a company can do is to not be present. Putting up a website and leaving it is not the way to generate traffic and leads for your organization. The key to online marketing is to be present and in the moment with your customers and future customers. As a retail company, you might be changing your offers on a daily basis, or as a marketing company you might have a blog that you keep up to date. Letting your customers know what is going on with your organization is key to gaining and maintaining customers. 


What is the single most impactful thing companies can do to attract more clients? 

Ask for referrals! If your current customers are willing to recommend your services to one of their customers or colleagues, you are able to start your relationship with that potential client one step further down the road in the “Know, Like and Trust” process. Many of your current customers are happy with your products or services, but they aren’t thinking of making recommendations. It’s your job to put yourself at the top of their mind for professional conversations. 

Marketers like to say that technology is just a tool. But technology (think AdWords or Facebook or even email before that) can significantly change marketing landscape. Are there any emerging disruptive technologies or tools that are on your radar? 

With new tools emerging in the marketplace each day, it’s safe to say that I think tools in general are changing the face of marketing. It’s never been easier to find influencers in your field, manage social media, generate content, build websites, etc. The value that tools offer gives marketing masterminds the opportunity to work with more clients and offer them more capabilities. 

One specific tool to note, RivalIQ is beautifully disruptive to the marketing landscape. RivalIQ gives users access to competitor information like we’ve never had before. The type of data they offer can affect marketing strategy decisions from initial planning to day-by-day updates and adjustments. 

Social is no longer just for customers. Companies are starting to use social collaboration platforms, private social networks, work chat, social task management, etc. inside their organizations to make faster and better decisions. Which of those tools in your experience work best for marketing teams? 

Collaboration is a key benefit of social. Each team takes to different management and collaboration tools differently, but we have found that something as simple as a private Facebook group is highly effective for our network to collaborate. 

What skills should marketers concentrate on developing in order to stay relevant in the next 5-10 years? 

To stay relevant, marketers and any business leader must find, polish and stay true to their core difference. The industry is constantly changing, but you can always learn new skills and utilize other people’s skills. Unless you have something that sets you apart from your competitors, you won’t stay relevant for long. 

What resources can you recommend to those who want to stay on top of their marketing game? Books, blogs, podcasts – anything. 

I definitely recommend the Moz Blog and HubSpot as great resources for marketers. I recently read “Pop!” by Sam Horn,“Fizz – Harness the Power of Word of Mouth Marketing to Drive Brand Growth” by Ted Wright, and “Zombie Loyalists – Using Great Service to Create Rabid Fans.” They were some great outside of the regular marketing box books. 

Thank you for the interview.

Your business is running well, profits are growing, and you feel the urge. You want to push to the next level. How do you know it’s the right time? Check out these five signs it’s time to expand. 




Your Finances Are Organized 

Your financial records are filed. Your accounting system is set up completely and you know how to use it and you do use it. You know where your money is and you keep track of where it’s going. You make sure your bills get paid on time. You pay invoices before they come due. You negotiate with vendors for the best rates. 

You’re either a whiz at accounting yourself, or you’ve hired a company accountant, or you have a great accountant on retainer. You know the numbers, and you watch (and can easily track) your bottom line. 

Your Teams Are Strong 

No matter how great your product is, and how stellar your customer services is, without a unified and strong team, you don’t have a business ready for growth. 

Do team members communicate well? Team meetings run for a purpose, not for socializing. Team members play together nice. Telecommuters check in regularly. In-house people get along. The teams are meshing, and the managers are managing (but not micromanaging). 

If you have the right people in the right positions, you have a solid business. If you’re seeing one people problem, it’s this: everyone’s workload is growing, but everyone is working at maximum output level. 

Your Profits Are Steady 

You have a good profit margin. A track record of profits. Growing profits. And from all financial forecasting and sales figures, you expect to see continued growing profits. 

This is the biggest, best, and boldest sign but if the other signs don’t accompany it, don’t lean on profits alone to make your company fit for growth. Profits matter, certainly, but without a strong team or a functioning financial system, profits are not enough. 

A diminishing or leveling profit margin doesn’t always mean you are doing something wrong; it could mean, in fact, that growth is necessary. Without growth, your business might not able to meet increasing demand. As a result output will level off, meaning profits will either steady out or, perhaps, slow down as you cease pushing and marketing with the same zeal. 

Your Cash Flow Is Positive 

Your incoming cash exceeds your outgoing cash, even on the lean days and weeks. You understand your sales cycle, and you have a streamlined payment process. You’re not depending on a haphazard “hope the payments come through before the bills come due” methodology. Instead, you are proactive. 

You know how to in get cash in before cash goes out. You see the cycles, the ebbs and flows, that are a natural part of running a business. You’ve learned how to work with those ebbs and flows, not overextend your finances, and not assume a cash-confidence you shouldn’t have. 

You keep the whole financial picture in mind, and that allows you to make good decisions and keep your cash flow positive. 

Your Funding Is Ready 

You know you want to expand, and you have the capital in place (or a sound plan for getting it) to fund that expansion. 

Expanding a small business to the next level can often feel like a leap in the dark for small business owners. And it is, if you don’t have adequate funds to finance it. If you’re ready to expand, you will have a phased-out plan for how that expansion should happen. You will have accurate figures for how much each phase will cost. You might even have a timeline in mind for how long each phase should take to complete. 

Expanding without funding is like jumping without a parachute. It might be exciting at first, but it’s going to end in disaster.

If you’re looking at your healthy business and seeing these signs, congratulations. You’ve done a stellar job of growing a small business that can move onward and upward. If you’re not quite there yet, now you know what to tackle. See you on the next level.

Slow times are part of any small business. Fortunately, you can act to help your business survive, and even thrive, through them. Here’s how.

 

Know That They’re Coming

 

You can’t predict all the slow times, of course. But if your business has trackable trends, such as a summer sales boom and a typical winter lag, stay aware of it.

 

Look at the bigger picture, too. Tracking trends in your industry can help you see when cyclical dips and upticks tend to happen.

 

Keep Tracking Your Cash Flow

 

Tracking your cash flow is good, but a short-term view of cash flow can get you into trouble. Some business owners will see a high sales month as a sign that it’s a good idea to expand their expenses. Additional expenses may be fine as long as your sales are high, but not once you hit that low season.

 

To keep your cash flow consistently healthy, don’t add on expenses just because you have one or two good months. Track your cash flow by quarters and seasons, not week or months.

 

Prioritize All Expenses

 

Reducing expenses, is, of course, an effective way to help your business handle lean times; but how does one do that, exactly? First, make a list of all your expenses. Then arrange those expenses in tiers, or levels of priority, from 1 to 4:

1. Non-negotiable, uninterruptible expenses (rent and utilities and salaries).

2. Non-negotiable but interruptible expenses (inventory purchases).

3. Negotiable but important (marketing, fleet maintenance).

4. Negotiable, less important (supplies, seasonal decor, bonuses, training).

 

Don’t Reduce What Makes You Money

 

The biggest temptation during slow times is to cut out the biggest expenses. Unfortunately, these are usually the expenses that bring you income: salaries, inventory, and marketing.

 

Cutting the things that bring in funds might seem like an answer; at the offset, you will have greatly reduced expenses. You will also soon have even more severely reduced funds.

 

You can’t make money if you cut out the expenses required to make produce and sell. Reduce the expenses that don’t relate directly to sales. Maintain the expenses that drive your sales. Generally those are your employees, your products, and your marketing.

 

Do negotiate with vendors for better terms and deferred payments. If you’ve been a good customer with a good payment history, you should be able to get some wiggle room for a few months.

 

Do ferret out those overdue accounts and start collecting. Send a friendly but firm reminder to all past-due. Follow up with a friendly call a few days later to confirm that the reminder was received and the payment has been sent.

 

Do examine your payment process and look for ways to streamline it. The faster you get paid, the better off your cash flow will be. Be sure your invoicing process happens immediately after the sale. And if you can expand your payment gateway to include more options, do so.

 

Focus on What You Can Do

 

Spend time on the projects and improvements that normally get shoved to the back burner.

 

Focus on improving your business. How about organizing your inventory, improving your accounting system, or streamlining your follow-up process? Improve the parts of your business that help you run more efficiently, improve quality, and keep your finances on track.

 

Focus on increasing customer loyalty. Write that email newsletter. Read all the customer feedback you can get. Send out a survey. Talk to the customers who are around. Follow up with the customers who aren’t.

 

Focus on targeted, special promotions. Maximize your social media and content marketing. If you have time (but not money), you can research how to write a blog post, best practices for using Pinterest, and the optimum times to upd ate Facebook. Then you can start implementing what you learn.

 

Focus on training your employees. Spend the time improving your customer service practices, writing scripts and documents needed for daily use, dealing with common clogs in the workflow, and establishing the policies and procedures that you should already have in place.

 

Lean times aren’t fun for small business owners, but they can be productive. And if you use them wisely, they can help you to maximize the busy times when they do come around again.

What you think you know about creativity might just be holding you back. 



The Left-Brain vs. Right-Brain Model Is Just Wrong 

We’ve long used the distinction of being a left-brain or right-brain thinker as a cute little way to show that a) we’re smart about brain stuff and b) we’re either creative or not creative. 
In our neurological model, the left brain was all about decisions and analysis, definitive thinking and action, absolutes and logic. It had nothing to do with the effervescent, visual, expansive, relational right brain of creativity. 

The only problem is that this particular model just isn’t accurate. 

Research shows, in fact, that creative thinking does not belong to any particular side or area of the brain, but can “call up” multiple areas from either side of the brain. It really just depends on what kind of creative problem you might be solving. 

This means, of course, that if you’ve always identified yourself as a logical, left-brained person, you are no longer off the hook when creative problems arise. 

Time Constraints and Stress Hurt Creativity 

Constant deadlines, high-pressure work environments, never-ending urgent emails, and an unending to-do list have a bad effect on creativity. 

Studies show that working under pressure and looming deadlines results in higher anxiety and lowered creative processing. Though we all understand that anxiety thing from experience, we might not realize how time constraints can hinder our creative thinking. 

We actually can come up with ideas or solutions or whatever is needed; it’s a survival response. But while we think we are being creative, what we are actually doing is pumping out mediocre responses in hopes of avoiding the perceived danger of missing that deadline. 

Not Working Really Helps Creative Work 

Taking breaks. Taking a nap or taking a walk. Grabbing a quick coffee and a chat. All of these things don’t look like creative work. They look like the opposite of work. But what they produce in the brain - dopamine - leads to an increase in creativity. 

According to recent research in the field of neuroscience, the more dopamine we have in our brain, the higher our creative drive becomes. So doing those things that release dopamine, like staring out the window at a beautiful sky, fitting in some exercise, or distracting yourself with a pleasant break, do help us in our creative work. It just doesn’t become obvious until the dopamine-inducing activity is over and we settle back into work, feeling strangely refreshed and full of ideas. 

How to Use the Science in Your Life 

How can the science help you to increase your own creativity or encourage creativity in your team? Here are three ways. 

1. Don’t dismiss analytical thinkers as “uncreative” people. 
Subscribing to the left-brain/right-brain stereotype might lead you to doubt your own creative ability, or to cut off creative input from team members who don’t fit a certain creative profile. Retrain yourself to be open to creative input from anyone, because there really is no personality type when it comes to creativity. 

2. Set soft deadlines on projects and assignments. 
A soft deadline gives you a time buffer, which is not only useful in case a genuine emergency does arise, but is also extremely helpful for creativity. Even when you are acting as if your soft deadline is the real thing, your brain knows it’s a front. This knowledge lets you relax and settle into creativity instead of tightening up under a deadline that is real and much too soon. 

3. Use a timer method for working and breaks. 
The Pomorodo technique, a popular timer method, is based on doing 25-minute work sessions followed by short (5 or 10 minute) breaks. Do focused work, then take a break. Repeat as needed for a workday routine that allows you to get stuff done while also giving your brain much-needed rest time. Use your breaks wisely (think relaxation and happiness, not cramming in another to-do or listening to people complain) and you can see those work sessions get more creative.

The beginning of a new year is a great time for resolutions. Better than resolutions, however, are simple but specific changes you can make right now that will help you make this a more productive year. 


1. Think small, not big. 
We like to talk about big goals and big dreams. That’s not a bad thing, but when we only look at the big picture, we can miss out on the small actions that we need to take on a daily basis. 

You can work up your energy and motivation, and make a few great big leaps forward. However, it’s far more effective to cultivate the habit of small but consistent progress. 

Think of making regular bits of progress rather than huge surges toward your goal. You can’t maintain the focus and energy required for those all-out effort. You can, however, maintain a tiny, daily habit or a weekly step forward. Break big goals into smaller goals, and then into tiny actions that you build into your daily routine. 

2. Limit your to-do list. 
An overgrown to-do list requires you to spend your valuable time sorting, prioritizing, and shuffling tasks instead of getting important work done. 

It’s okay to admit your limits. The sooner you do, the sooner you can start completing tasks instead of simply moving and managing tasks. 

Limit your daily list to one to three important tasks that you must complete. You will gain immediate clarity. You know what you’re supposed to do, and you can focus on it and let other things fade out. There will always be unplanned tasks and questions that come up in your day. You will have to handle those, but then you can go right back to the important tasks on your list without any hesitation. 

3. Use your calendar, planner, and/or task management system daily. 
Your system can only help you if you use it regularly. All those task lists, scheduled events, meetings, ongoing team projects, work communications and updates should stay in your system, not in your head. 

Multiple daily check-ins allow you to see, review, and upd ate what you need to without giving yourself those mental burdens. Make it a ritual for morning, noon, and night. Let your system do to remembering, organizing and reminding, and free your brain to do the work. 

4. Set up a system for your recurring tasks. 
Whether it’s planning out work schedules or assigning project responsibilities or creating content, every time you complete a recurring task you go through the same steps, and usually in the same order. 

A simple system enables you to get through the task faster and ensures that you don’t miss any important steps. Your system might be as simple as a checklist, or it might be more complex and involve supplies, a schedule, or written steps that remind you what to do and how to do it. 
Bonus: once you systematize a task or event, you can easily train someone else to take it on. 

5. Choose your interruptions. 
We think of interruptions as things we can’t control: invasive people, important phone calls, unavoidable requests. It’s the daily deluge of the urgent, and most of us just handle it as best we can and try to get our work done at the same time. 

Change that, this year, by spending 15 minutes thinking about which interruptions are valid and worthwhile. An important phone call from your boss or client might be a priority no matter what else you have going on; but a schedule change, a product review, or a client email might not. You have to decide, and once you do, put those valid interruptions on a list and keep it in plain sight. 

When the interruptions come, and they will, check them with the list. If an interruption is not on the list, remember that you have opted out of it; all that is left is to convey that message, kindly but clearly, to the source of the interruption. That may mean closing your door, turning off notifications, moving to a quiet space away from other people, excusing yourself from a conversation, or asking to schedule a phone call for a later time. 

When you take control of your interruptions, you also take control of your productivity. Make the simple changes now that will allow you to be at your most productive this year.
