"Lead by example." It’s a tried and true approach to any leadership role. But just as new parents begin to find their kids picking up on their habits, managers and company leadership can find their employees emulating the behaviors they observe in the workplace. While sometimes this can be positive, there are also times when negative behaviors can develop as well. This then creates a domino effect: Once a few employees begin behaving in a certain way, it impacts the company culture and the entire team.
Today’s consumers don’t want to be marketed to; they want to be educated. They have become accustomed to “instant Internet gratification:” using online searches to find all of the answers they could ever want about products, services, businesses, and industries. That’s where inbound marketing comes in!

Rather than letting the standard two weeks tick by without talking to your new recruit, we suggest you begin onboarding.
It’s well known that consumer behavior changes with the seasons, and your company undoubtedly takes that into account.

In today’s job market, prospective employees have more options than ever when it comes to their next professional venture. And with Millennials now making up the largest percentage of the current workforce, attitudes about job-hopping are shifting as well. That means many employees are keeping their options open for an opportunity where they can feel involved in a greater company vision. This could be setting up your business to lose strong performers as a result.
So how do you retain the new talent you’ve worked so hard to recruit? Look no further than your company culture.
Attention all business owners and marketers! Here’s the honest truth: Investing in digital targeting services, such as geofencing, targeted display, or search engine marketing (SEM), entitles you to a collaborative and transparent relationship with your service provider. This means that your business should know what digital products you purchase, how your budget is being allocated, and most importantly, how those products are performing.
When you think sales, there are sure to be a couple of images that spring to mind: tireless door-to-door travelers, Wall Street types, or the overly-aggressive hovering salesman. Whatever the image might be, the commonality is a high stress, sink-or-swim environment where it’s every man and woman for themselves.

In today’s global economy, approximately two-thirds of businesses survive the first two years, half of all businesses make it to five years, and only a third succeed to 10 years or more. That being said, if your business has survived several years of ongoing success, it’s certainly something to celebrate! However, with your continued business growth, you may start to believe you’ve reached every customer possible and the available leads are slim. As a result, your focus is on retaining current clients rather than hunting for new ones, in order to maintain the status quo.
