The Digital Side – how often do you review your website? Do all your links work? Is all the content up to date? Put 15 minutes aside each day to check all of your social media and respond, even briefly to those who need responding to.
Be Human – it’s very easy to sit and run your business from home, behind a screen. It’s important that you remember to go out and network, meet people face to face. It’s a great way to help your business grow.
