media. The more folks that hear them, hopefully the more consider doing
business with you.

Finally, how good are you with social media? Do not be one of those businesses
failing to capitalize on all social media has to offer. That said you should be
active on many social platforms. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram come to mind.

reap the rewards. Last, be sure to engage with current and prospective customers
on social media. When they have relevant questions or comments, you should be
