The Local Small Business Coach Podcast
Here is what we discuss in today's episode:
Thank You for Your Support on the changes to the podcast and your support of my new podcast over at the Start a Local Small Business Podcast.
Your Questions Answered: We answer a question on how you should set your prices in the beginning stages of your business. You initially want to be competitive with your competitors. Once you build a reputation for service and quality of work, you can start to pull away from the pack but your first goal needs to be getting your foot in the door.
Tammy's Rant: We go over my rant for the week on cold calling. We discussed that if you do any cold calling you must make a personal connection first and not insult your target audience just because they aren’t ready to hear your sales pitch at this time. Insulting them will only cause them to remember your company in a negative way but also in a way that will trickle to their family, friends and neighbors.
Today's Business Tip: Finally, we discussed three words that will help you towards great success. That when you focus on Attitude, Amplify & Action you can take your business to the next level. These words serve as a reminder to take your life and business to the next level.
