Inertia kills. In your personal life lack of motion leads to health issues… in your business life lack of motion causes similar issues.
Business owners who say they did the same amount of business this year as last stood still. The reality is they went backwards because some of their competitors added revenue and moved past them.
Movement is healthy.
Business trying new things, buying new equipment, opening new offices or hiring additional salespeople are all examples of business movement. Most important… you cannot expect to grow market share, add profits or expand by sitting still.
As a leader you need to move so that your staff employees can follow. If you sit still they will as well.
As a salesperson you must always be striving for more. Sitting still will doom you to failure.
As a business owner you must always be looking for better ways to do things, studying your competition and be seeking new/better ways to deliver services or products.
Movement keeps you energized and alert, keeps you focused and engaged.
For the record a 5 hour energy drink does not replace movement. Tired, find yourself disengaged or unable to focus?
• Take a walk
• Hit the gym
• Go for a bike ride
• Throw a ball with the kids
• Play with the dog
• Do yoga
• Shoot basketball
Not only is it good for your health but movement is good for your business. It makes you sharper, more engaged and gives you better focus. Need a new idea? Struggling with an issue? Have problems with another employee?
Move and you might be surprised by how you feel and how good your business looks…

Small businesses have struggled to effectively leverage social media
by Andrew C. Belton
Social media is among a variety of tasks that business owners would do well to outsource. The role that social media has played in business has changed significantly in a relatively short period of time. Small businesses have struggled to effectively leverage social media and take advantage of it as an interactive and cost-effective marketing communication tool. As a Digital Marketing Agency we help small businesses to leverage social media marketing to build brand credibility, promote awareness, nurture professional relationships, provide value and promote consistency. Social media marketing requires a fair amount of time and skill, so how should business owners approach it?
As a business owner do you have the time and knowledge to manage your company’s social media accounts? Do you have a team member or intern to handle it? Or will you outsource the task? Let’s consider 4 reasons why social media should be outsourced.
The goal of social media marketing is to drive web traffic. Whether it be to build an email list, prompt visitors to contact you or drive sales, it can all be accomplished by driving traffic to your website. The most efficient (unpaid) way to drive web traffic is to create valuable content. By doing so, it will help you to build brand loyalty and gain social shares which can boost your SEO (search engine optimization) results. Content production is a huge need in the digital marketing industry. Creating content can become extremely time consuming and as a busy entrepreneur, it certainly isn’t atop your to-do list. Fortunately many social media marketing companies produce content for their clients or have partners that can do so.
Hiring an employee can be very expensive. The hiring process, onboarding, training, healthcare, benefits and tax costs can add up. Even though a dedicated social media manager may be ideal for your
How large business is losing its grip on SEO Results
It's true that all technology is a moving target ... and there are no absolutes.
But, as Google® algorithm updates continue to refine location based and local search results it is imperative that your small business make its mark in Local SEO. If you don't, your neighboring competitors are sure to do so. Here are some reasons why Search and Local Search are moving to providing small business the benefits that national and international companies have enjoyed for years.
1. As stated before Google® continues to improve its algorithms to return better local results for a user's search query. Most searches are done on a mobile device today and this trend isn't slowing down. Given that most of these mobile searches also include the user's location (by default), tighter, more refined geographic-based results are being delivered. This without the user having to structure their query to include qualifiers like "near me", "nearby" and "in City Name".
