What will they lose?

BNZ economist Tony Alexander recently observed too many small business owners were reluctant to attend courses. He suggested the promoters should focus less on the “how to’s” and more on what they’ll lose by not attending. You can apply that principle to your marketing. Focus on the fear of failure or missing out. Fear is a powerful marketing tool. Don’t hesitate to use it. And, by the way, the colour red denotes danger, so use that, too.

Asking for referrals

Don’t hesitate to ask for referrals for your business. How do you like this ONE from Flight Centre? "The highest compliment you can give us is the referral of a new client. Thank you in advance for your thought-ful recommendation."

Ultra fast broadband

Are you surprised when your ultra fast broadband service is not ultra fast? It might be because you have a low-cost computer. These computers can be slow to process modern programs and operating systems. You might also have insufficient ram. Check processing and ram capacity when you buy.
