Do you sometimes wish you could flip a switch and have tons of people knocking down your doors and buying from you? If only it was that easy, right? If you’re struggling in business, the source of the problem can usually be narrowed down to three challenges: not enough customers, not enough traffic, or not closing enough sales. In today’s episode, I’m focusing on identifying your biggest conversion problem so you can break through that barrier and grow your business.

Listen in as I share what our biggest success was at The Draw Shop, why you don’t have an actual business if you don’t have marketing dollars to back it up, and questions you should be asking before you spend a dollar on advertising. Whether you’re a new business owner or a seasoned entrepreneur, this episode will help you identify what your biggest challenge is and how to conquer it.

In this episode, we cover topics such as:

  • Why marketing is crucial to business growth.
  • Things I have learned from owning my business.
  • Why it’s important to know where your marketing dollars are going.
  • The amount you should be spending on advertising.
  • Questions to ask before committing to any dollar spend.
