Are you serious? 7 business questions for advisors

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Are you serious about growing your business? Ask yourself these seven questions.

1. Do I know precisely who my ideal client is and why?

2. Have I written a strategy to reach my ideal prospect?

3. Have I thought through all of the client “touch points” in my business to ensure they resonate with my ideal prospect?

4. Am I (or is my process/solution) interesting to my ideal prospect?

5. Have I differentiated myself in order to make it impossible for others to offer the same service to my ideal prospect?

6. Once I make my ideal prospect into a client, do I have a plan to keep them ecstatic with my service and solutions?

7. Do I really care enough to spend the time to figure this stuff out, or am I happy enough just selling anything to anybody?

Answer these questions and you can set yourself apart from your once-competitors in many ways.
