I often find myself talking to people about what I do. When I mention helping businesses with their internet presence, blogs and active websites it usually grabs their attention. When I talk about the mistakes that many businesses make with their websites and the steps they could be taking to increase visibility and attract clients they listen intently.
So you’d think that when I ask them if their own sites are working for them, they’d jump at the chance to make changes right? Wrong.
The most common response I get are excuses. Tons and tons of excuses.
I don’t have the time. I don’t have the money. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if I’m ready for changes.
Excuses, excuses, excuses.
I dislike excuses. Because as long as people are using excuses, they are closing the door on possibilities.
The possibility of making a name for themselves in their industry, drawing clients to them rather than having to hunt for clients, and becoming a trusted resource that potential clients are going to think of first when they need what they offer. And ultimately, the possibility of being more successful.
In an effort to get rid of excuses, I’m running a contest. The Excuse Buster Contest.
Really. That’s just how much I dislike excuses.
