What works and what doesn't? It's hard to know without trying, but sometimes it's difficult to try if you don't know where to begin.
That's how I used to feel about business. I knew how to fix computers, but thinking strategically about my business was not something I was good at. I feel a lot more confident now than I used to... and that's because I decided to get help with what I didn't know.
I'm very pleased to be co-presenting a talk with my business coach Todd Ihrcke. Todd will be presenting on five key profit generating areas for businesses to focus on. Understanding “the five ways” has certainly helped me get a better handle on what's going on in my business; I feel much more in control instead of always responding to the next crisis.
After Todd's presentation, I'll be talking about Social Media tools and strategies that have helped me connect with people who need my services and, more importantly, connect with people who want to spread the word about Orange Computer Repair. I'll be giving examples of how I use Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook to increase my ability to reach potential customers.
The event will be held at the Hampton Inn in Onalaska on Tuesday, September 4th at 7 in the evening. More details and contact information for registering are on the flyer (PDF download).
There is a $10 charge for the session if you register with Todd ahead of time ($15 at the door if you don't register). I think the how-to information presented will be more than worth the fee.
Do you know anyone (yourself included) who would benefit from this event? If so, please pass this on to them. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
