Insight on Business finishes our first year on Des Moines Local...LIVE this nation's first all live Internet Radio Station. It's been an amazing seven months. But, I'm getting way ahead of myself! Welcome back. We're on today LIVE at 12:30PM Centra. IF you missed the LIVE show, no problem, here is the recording. The TEXT is below.
Today we're going to look back, just a bit, to some of the big topics we've covered over the past several months. Things like:
Everybody Makes Mistakes - Ask Wellmark - When corners are cut all kinds of things start to fly south. The next trick is how do you recover? This comes from our show on October 15, 2009.
10 Things I Wish I Knew BEFORE I Started in Marketing - An "insightful" piece by Mike Thimmesch that we used last fall.
Most Small Business Owners Fail at Internet Marketing - Back in September we talked about this and how local chamber organizations can help...if they really want to serve their membership.
Keeping Things Simple - Several months ago I took on our own Des Moines Local...LIVE website and gave you some solid reasons why you MUST keep your website simple but tasteful. And...changes will happen.
What Can We Learn from a Menu? - Let's say you are going to take a product or service to market. How should you price it? We liked this by Mike Speiser.
5 Things Small Business Owners Should Do Online Today - Chris Brogan is one of our favorites. Here is a quick read that underscores what we've been saying for months. From our show on September 14, 2009. Have you done any of them?
In The Future Your Kids Won't Shop The Way You Do - Time to bang the drum again. Why in the world do you resist selling products online? Are you just waiting to go out of business first? This is from our September 8th show.
Increase Your Marketing During Tough Times - This should have been the tag line for our show all summer long. Here is an article by Elizabeth Walker. We swear she had been listening in.
Finally, something NEW from today. If you accomplish NOTHING else today I want you to FIRE this "employee" before the New Year begins. Don't sugar coat it...write the "pink slip" today and watch business soar.
