Marketing Questions To Ask If You Want More Customers Or Clients For Your HR-Related Business

Every week I receive at least one email from a podcast listener or newsletter reader where the person asks me this question:

However, there’s a problem . . .

  • What are we doing to convert website visitors into sales leads?
  • What are we doing to nurture our sales leads?
  • What unpaid marketing channels are we using and how are they performing?
  • What paid marketing channels are we using and how are they performing?
  • What are we doing to improve our conversion rates?
  • How do we scale up?
