Before We Get Started Checklist
The following are some conditions I like to have met before we begin a project together. I have found that these things need to be in place for a project to be successful. My focus and passion are to make your small business as successful as possible and to see you get a maximum return on your investment. The following things will give us the best shot at making that happen.
You Need to Have Goals
This may seem obvious, but if you don’t have a clear & measurable set of goals in place BEFORE we begin this process, than ultimately we may end up just wasting each other’s time. If you don’t know where you are going, how will we will never know when we get there?
You Need to Have an Audience
Again, another seemingly obvious point, but if you don’t have an audience than we need to work on ways to build one. In order to build one, we have to define who your key market is and is not. This is where social media becomes very important to your success.
You are Active on Social Media
You may not be active with your business on social media (yet), but you do need to be active with your personal social media accounts. There are many important reasons for this. You WILL need the experience on social media to promote your business properly online.
You Need to Have a Budget
In order to be successful online, you will need to make a financial investment. Before we begin you will need to determine how much of an investment you are willing to make to get the results you want. Your competitors are already online and we don’t want them to steal more of your potential clients.
You need to Have Passion
In order to build an audience online and translate your small business online you will need to invest lots of time and effort. This will require passion on your part in order to get the results you want. You can bet that your competitors are passionate and they willing to do whatever it takes to get your clients from you.
You Need to Make Time
No one knows your business better than you do. In order for me to absorb your vision for the business and translate that to the web, I will need lots of your time. As we plan content, design & decide layouts to build your brand, be ready to invest the hours needed. We will build you a better business … together.
