When’s the last time you wrote a blog article for your business’ blog? Does your business even have a blog? If yes, what topics do you cover? If no, why not? If you’re thinking that you don’t need a blog, you’re wrong. Blogs are useful to small business owners looking to attract leads on a shoestring budget. When approached correctly, your blog can position your small business as a thought leader in your industry, help you acquire the exposure your business needs, and enable you to learn more about your target audience. What questions about blogging can we answer for you?

You’ve got this amazing website up with all these nifty features but you’re still getting no traffic. If this describes your situation, don’t be alarmed. It doesn’t matter how awesome your website is, well, it does, but not for the purposes of web traffic. Without getting too technical, here are two quick ways you can increase your likelihood of being found on Google, thus increasing your probability of increasing your web traffic. First, focus on keywords throughout your website. Too often, small business owners take a purely informational approach and toss the value using specific keywords out the window. Second, compress your images. Image sizes impact your page load speeds, which is a Google ranking factor and will determine where your website lands on Google’s results page. What SEO questions can we answer for you?

Are you productive? Are your employees? Do you understand the value of productivity? Not just the part about getting more done in a day. Have you ever considered what increased productivity can do to morale and how it impacts the customer service coming from your small business? If not, you should give it some real thought. Customer service is what’ll differentiate you from your competitors, so start early. How are you increasing productivity in your small business?

Yeah, your business is awesome, and you know it. You sell the hottest products, employ the brightest talent, and release some of the most memorable ad campaigns of our time. But few people know about your business. Even fewer people truly understand the value that your business can add to them over the value added by your competitors. How can you tell them without, well, telling them? The key is webinars. Webinars are a great way for small business owners to demonstrate their industry knowledge while simultaneously attracting new leads. What webinar production questions can we answer for you?

One of the most difficult things for first-time small business owners to understand seems to be that employees are people. Too often, employees are approached in a methodical and calculated manner by small business owners. They are seen as a means to an end because they’re paid to perform services for the business. However, employees offer much more value to small business owners than simply fulfilling the functions of their job. From connecting with customers in meaningful ways to connecting with the community, employees offer many often-unnoticed benefits to small businesses. What types of value do your employees add to your small business?

Often overlooked by small business owners, communication is critical to the success of your business. One of your duties as owner, unless you’ve delegated this task, is to communicate effectively with both your employees and customers. To be an effective leader and steer your business down a path to success, you must not only tell people what to do, but you must also take the time to listen to them. Then, and only then, will you be an effective leader.

What does it mean to be an effective small business leader? What do you think it means to be an effective small business leader? Does it involve tasking employees? Executing tasks yourself? How about personally handling customer complaints? There’s no right answer. To truly become an effective small business leader, you must determine how you want your business to be perceived. The solution is to take those thoughts and determine what you can do to enrich others in a manner that helps you achieve your goals. How are you currently achieving your goals by enriching others?

Are you cheap? Some small business owners are cheap. It’s one thing to be frugal and financially responsible, it’s another to underpay overworked employees and not give back to the community within which you operate. If this sounds like you, you know who you are, consider this: paying employees a fair wage and giving back to the community within which you operate can help your business. Sure, it might set you back in the beginning. That’s undebatable. However, happier employees lead to increased productivity levels and better customer service, further resulting in increased customer satisfaction and loyalty. How are you connecting with the community within which you operate?

To use your personal money to keep your business afloat or not, that is the question. You’ve already invested so much but the future looks bleak. You’re not sure if it’s worth continuing a perceived delusion or if you should throw in the towel. Before deciding, you should take the time to fully consider your actions and the outcome they can have on you. Further, consider how they can impact your family. There’s no right or wrong answer, only the answer you believe is best for you. What are you struggling with as a small business owner?

As a small business owner, one of your key roles involves helping to maintain the relevance of your business over time. Your goal should always be to keep customers coming through your doors because, without them, your business will become irrelevant and fail. How do you keep up with the times, though? The answer is simple: innovation. Innovate processes and technologies both provide you with a competitive advantage and make your business more attractive to quality talent. What innovation questions can we answer for you?

How are you giving back to the community where your business is located? Are you hiring local employees? Are you sponsoring a little league team? Are you attending charitable events? Do you offer discounts for special classes of customers? Giving back doesn’t have to be an expensive or complicated process. In fact, anything is better than nothing. Anything you do to enrich the community surrounding your small business will enrich the people in that community, and they will in turn be motivated to see your business succeed. Not to forget how awesome it feels to do good for others. How are you adding value to the community within which you operate?

Imagine that a business opportunity arises that can help you take your small business to the next level. It aligns with your business’ values and can help you reach a certain goal a lot faster than you otherwise would have. The opportunity is just what you need, but it’s time-sensitive and you need working capital for it to work in your favor. You don’t have the capital necessary, but you need it fast. Merchant cash advances are an excellent way for small businesses to obtain the funds necessary within a short period of time.

One of the key benefits of a merchant cash advance is that your remittances are determined by your revenue. Merchant cash advance providers purchase a percentage of your future receivables in exchange for an upfront lump-sum payment. As revenue changes, remittance amounts change with it because remittances are a percentage of your receivables. What questions do you have about merchant cash advances?

As a small business owner, it is seemingly easier to do the job yourself rather than delegate tasks to one of your employees who might be challenged by the job. According to Forbes, though, “top performers become disengaged when they aren’t being challenged at work.” In order to grow your small business, you need star employees. These individuals are generally top performers with ambitious futures. In order to retain them, you must, in part, challenge them daily. Employees enjoy being challenged because challenges enable them to grow and self-develop. How are you challenging your small business employees?

Have you ever taken a moment to consider your small business from the perspective of your employees? As an employer, your motivations for actions stem from your personal investment in and connection to your business and not because you’re looking for a paycheck. Employees, no matter how motivated they might be to grow within your organization, are motivated by their paychecks, yes, but more importantly by how they spend their time. Employees no longer want to clock in and clock out to collect a few bucks for services rendered. Research shows that employees want to use their time to add value to the world around them. They want to engage in meaningful efforts and make a difference. As an employer, it’s up to you to provide these meaningful opportunities for your employees to make the most of their time. What roadblocks do you face when providing your employees with meaningful opportunities in the workplace?

Nothing says more about your business than the culture you create for your employees. As a small business looking to compete in today’s marketplace, nothing is more important than hiring and retaining star talent. No matter your industry and how large or small your business is, human capital serves as its backbone. According to a 2018 study, over 30% of employees who leave a company within the first 30 days of their employment do so due to the company’s culture. What’s your small business culture like and what questions can we answer for you? 

As a small business owner, spending seemingly unnecessary capital on employee engagement activities can seem like a waste of your resources. Bills must be paid and inventory must be purchased. Let’s not forget your upcoming salary increase and quarterly bonuses. Although it might seem like a waste of resources, employee engagement is one of the most important things you can invest in as a small business owner. According to Gallup, employees who are engaged with their work are 17% more productive AND make their employers 21% more profitable. What employee engagement questions do you have?
