Reacting and not taking considered action can hurt your business unnecessarily.
When sales are slipping or leads are not coming in it is easy to get a sense of anxiety.
If this continues then quick fixes are often sought.
But at this time it is essential not to react to the lack of sales. Instead take a step back and look at the situation.
The reason for this is to identify the problems. Then put in place simplicity strategies and tactics to get more customers.
By doing this means you can be more confident of getting the results you desire rather than hoping they will work.
It is not unusual to see businesses offering discounts to get customers to buy. In fact, for savvy customers they know this is a signal that the business needs business now.
However if the cause of the problem is the lack of awareness then the action of offering a discount is not that effective.
Actions to increase awareness online and offline where they are present would produce better results.
Taking a little time to work out the problem and the cause of the issue can save you time and money. This is because you stop reacting and trying things that do not work for your situation.
Most successful businesses have a process in place to get more customers. It isn’t a one size fits all blueprint. It is one that works for them, their business and customers.

If you do not have a process then it is difficult to know what the best action to take is. It doesn’t need a manual instead, it is the mapping of the path customers take and in many ways quite logical.
By knowing the path you can make sure using simplicity in your marketing strategies and tactics match each part of the process.
Reacting rather than taking considered action is not productive and can stall the growth of your business.
