Last week on Better Business Better Life we celebrated wonderful customer service experiences with our linky and in the comments.

Thank you to EVERYONE who joined in!

It just goes to show a lot of businesses are offering fantastic experiences and plenty of customer love.

As Carly Findlay from Tune Into Radio Carly shared:

Often we are quick to use social media to criticise businesses, but we should be just as quick to praise them!

Couldn’t have said it better Carly! Thank you!

Here are a couple of favourites then you’ll find out the linky topic for this week! Continue reading

Are You Wasting Your Business Funds?

Everyone wants to increase business revenue. I’m working hard for it and I’m sure you are too.

There are plenty of ways to increase your income such as:
• Diversify revenue streams
• Sell more to your existing clients
• Increase prices

All perfectly valid ideas and strategies you should consider.

But what if you could increase your profit by $1,200 a year within five minutes?

Really five minutes = extra $1,200 profit per annum?

Not a bad return right? Continue reading

Does Business Planning Make You Have Kittens?

Today’s post is by my gorgeous friend and creative business wizard Elle Roberts from Studio Exsto. After connecting online I was honoured to meet Elle in person last September when I attended her inaugural Artful Business Conference. Enjoy!

Business planning is simple and we all have the skills required to do.

What is not simple is getting over the fear of getting it wrong, getting overwhelmed by the process or getting confused by the incredible amount of mis-information and jargon available out there in the inter-webs.

If you can just make all that noise be quiet and listen your own voice, business planning is simple.

It is about deciding what you want most for your business – you know those crazy pie in the sky dreams. Taking that dream and figuring out what needs to happen to get you there, then taking those things and working out what actions you take can to make sure they happen.


Share Your Customer Love Story – Blog Linky

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll realise I recently launched ‘How To Host A Swingin’ Blog Challenge’ which included an interview with Ultimate Blog Challenge founder Michelle Shaeffer.

Don’t be ashamed of the rock. It mightn’t be such a bad idea with temperatures very frequently over 40 degrees (104 fahrenheit) the last month.

The Ultimate Blog Challenge is running this month and has a really active group on Facebook for sharing posts and supporting each other. A great new idea being trialled is bloggers sharing their posts under a status update created specifically for their niche. This means bloggers within a niche can get to know each other.

A great idea! But why not take it one step further? Continue reading

Press This To Prevent Writer’s Block

First a little announcement. Excited much?!?! I sure am!

I’d been following an awesome blogger for about two years then six months ago I thought it would be amazing to guest post for her. Almost immediately I knew that was a crazy thought. Don’t be dumb. Her blog is too big, your post won’t be good enough, yada yada yada.

Anyway fast forward and along the line I gave myself a kick in the pants.

So today I’d love to share with you a little post I wrote that’s been published on the one, the only Michelle Shaeffer’s blog – Revealed: The Easiest Way To Activate Your Tribe.

Your support and comments on Better Business Better Life mean so much and motivate me to ‘keep havin’ a go.’ I’d love you to show your support to Michelle as well – she is incredibly smart and is brilliant at sharing her expertise. You need to check Michelle’s work out.

Now something to help you! Continue reading
