1 – test your advertising’s true effectiveness (place a different phone or email contact in each publication and record the responses)

2 – develop an offer (when everyone else is trying to sell, do the opposite and buy new business by providing a special offer to open the door and start the relationship)

3 – teach your people how to network (properly) and watch sales grow

4 – conduct research (ask all new callers where they found out about you, record and analyse the results monthly)

5 – Zag, don’t zig (review what your main competitors are doing to promote themselves, identify what would be the complete opposite... then do it)

6 – Review your marketing budget (assess how much was spent on sending messages, generating transactions and developing relationships then ask yourself – is this the way to develop my business or just spend my money)

7 – Ask yourself - “when did we do something new?” “when did we do something different?” “when did we actually do something?” – then do it, but make sure it is new, different and worth doing (IE will it improve your business?)

8 – conduct research (phone 8 of your best customers/clients and ask them what you could do to improve your service)

9 – read a newspaper and count the number of articles you could have provided a comment on or been featured in (then consider commissioning a media plan)

10 – visit a competitors’ store, or website and ask 3 staff members if they would buy from this organisation (and why or why not)

11 – enrol in a training course (but one that will provide you with the skills to gain more business)

12 – review what you did in the last 5 days and ask yourself “how much of my time brought about a return or income?”
