Big and small business took a direct hit in the economic hurricane of the last several years.

And unless you were very smart or very lucky, you did not escape the carnage.

And, while the storm may not be completely over, it looks like the worst could be behind us.

So here’s a word to the wise…

Get your sales and marketing act together now – ahead of the upturn – so you can be ready to compete as soon as the music starts up again.

Do the new website you’ve been thinking about.

Create that new logo or ad campaign.

Start a search engine marketing program.

Execute a social media campaign.

Design and deploy a customer email program.

The timing is right to start building your business again.

We will recover. Be ready. Take advantage.

And remember, in business, as in life, luck is 95% preparation.
