In Episode 119 of the A Better HR Business show, I share a simple 5-step process you can use to grow your HR business.


It makes sense.

There are so many options out there for people trying to grow their HR business.

These lead to questions such as:

  • Should we be running paid ads somewhere?
  • Do we need a blog?
  • What should we be posting on LinkedIn?
  • Which types of companies should we approach? Why are they ignoring us?
  • Should I write a book?
  • What about Google AdWords?
  • What should we say on our website?
  • Should we be making videos?
  • How should we send emails? Hubspot, Mailchimp, Active Campaign, something else? 
  • How do we decide what to offer?
  • What’s the right angle to take in sales meetings?
  • How do we get more clients?

Again, ‘What should we do next?

People often feel a little overwhelmed.
