1. Not Listening To Your Customers
This one mistake can damage your business in a moment notice. If you’re not listening to what your customers need and are asking for then they will go to your competitors who will listen to them.

Starting on October 04, 2017 Google has begun making “overdelivery” a policy to help PPC campaigns get more clicks and conversions on days when there is a high amount of traffic. Google is calling it a good thing – I agree. However, what it means for advertisers and our clients is that we will begin to see daily spend double on certain days which our clients may be thrown back by at first. I am writing this post in order to explain it to my clients before I actually explain it to my clients.
What does this mean for our NetSource Inc. clients? This means that your campaigns will perform slightly better, as the Google algorithm will give you more clicks on days that are high in traffic, and show your ad more on those days, thus driving more sales, leads, and conversions. Total monthly spend will remain the same, as Google will average the spend on slower days and they will never bill more than they ever did, which is 30.4 days of the set budget. 30.4 is the average number of days in a month (365 days in a year / 12 months = 30.417). In Google words, “The waves of Internet traffic might make your daily costs go up and down. But at the end of the month, despite those unpredictable waves, you’ll find your costs at right where you expected them to be.”

There’s no arguing that having a website for your business is a must. However, these days there are so many do-it-yourself website creation sites out there that many feel there’s no need to hire a professional. Now while there might be a small fraction of people out there who can do just fine with a homemade site, most people who are running a business for profit will benefit immensely by having a professional do it for them.

In terms of mass media, video is king to consumers. While not all video receives the same amount of attention from consumers, as a whole, Americans spend a combined total of over A BILLION hours a day watching videos. Needless to say, video can be of great use to your business for advertising and marketing efforts. What about a live feed though? Seeing that social media sites don’t seem to be a passing fad, it may be time to consider using live streaming tools for your business.
Everyone talks about the need to have a ‘brand’ for your business, but you might be wondering why having a brand is important in the first place. A brand, simply put, is who you and your business are. It’s the image that you want to project for your products and services. Being unclear about what your business is about will confuse your potential customers, and if they don’t know who you are and what your values and missions are they most likely will move on to some other business that is clear about who they are. Branding is about standing out from the crowd and showing your customers why your business is unique in its solutions to their problems.
