But you still feel as if your business could be better. You feel as if your audience could be bigger, your relationships stronger, and your profits higher…

The first step to living up to your business potential is to generate more leads. And thanks to the strategies in part one of this series, you’ve got loads more people viewing your website, product, or blog.

Spiral books Tweet it! Wouldn’t it be nice if your customers came with a manual?

Whenever you buy something new, it often comes with a manual. Something that let’s the owner know how to care for it for best results.

Your milk has a label that tells you to keep it refrigerated. Your shirt has a tag that tells you how to keep it looking so fresh and so clean. And your phone comes with an entire pamphlet with instructions on how to operate it.

Strange as it is, the things that are most important, like your customers, don’t come with any manual at all.

That’s a bummer. Especially since it’s resulted in too many failed businesses. In fact, if you think back to your childhood, you’ll realize that your childhood pets often came with some sort of “Proper Care and Feeding” manual.
