“Being successful requires being proactive and not waiting for life to come at you. It means you’re on offense, not defence. You’re active, not passive.” – Benjamin P. Hardy, Organizational Psychologist and Author
What does it mean to be proactive? As Benjamin P. Hardy has eloquently put it, it means “[being] on offense” and “not waiting for life to come at you”. This means that instead of waiting for problems to plague your life, you source them out and nip them in the bud before they even become problems.
Day-to-day life is hard, especially in 2021. Aside from ongoing crises around the globe, a lingering pandemic has forced the population into re-evaluating their values and rearranging their lives. More people are quitting their jobs, working from home and starting their own businesses than ever before. Along with the joys of starting a business and being your own boss come great perils and obstacles, online and off. What are some things you can do to make the journey easier?
As many people learn from experience, the best way to get ahead is to stay ahead. To be proactive is to be prepared. In most instances, being reactive to a situation proves costlier and more demoralizing than being proactive. Instead of being reactive and scrambling to solve problems as they arise, you factor in predictable problems into your current plan and avoid associated expenses. Insight into the root cause of potential problems can save one a ton of money and heartache.
However, that is much easier said than done.
Another fact of life is that life itself is extremely difficult. While being proactive in one area is achievable, being proactive in every area of your life will lead you to cowering in a corner with your knees drawn to your chest hyperventilating because you are so overwhelmed.
If you are trying to run your life as well as a business, balancing the two can be tricky enough without constantly thinking of what can go wrong and trying to prevent it. That’s where a dedicated and team can come in to help. As the old saying goes, it takes a whole village. At KEY27, we pride ourselves in being proactive and thorough while helping your business succeed online, as our clients and partners have found throughout the years.
What makes us proactive?
On top of servicing our clients to achieve their unique goals, we also advise them in what areas we foresee turbulence and work on remolding the problem into an advantage.
Our motto is to go above and beyond. Due to our expertise and years in the digital marketing business, we are better equipped to spot and address potential issues than a business owner who is focused on running every other aspect of their store.
Being proactive also means taking initiative. Instead of working strictly within the bounds of a client’s goals, we steer the client and advise them into a direction that will benefit their business in other areas not before considered. There are many things to factor in when it comes to online marketing that people who are not professionals would not know about. Problems can arise from seemingly harmless things like:
– Website not Converting visitors in clients / leads
– Lack of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
– A scattered Brand image
– Inefficient Social Media management
– Lack of content
Those can all negatively impact your business’s online presence. We prevent that by coming in with the knowledge to promote a healthy online presence from the get-go and help you keep your game ahead of everyone else’s. Some of the services we provide include:
– Personalized SEO campaigns
– Improving the Website Conversion
– Brand consulting
– Social Media management
– Content planning and creation
Although it is impossible to predict 100% of problems that could arise, these are all tools that can be used proactively to stave off a myriad of future problems and shine a positive light onto your business. Our job is to look ahead, so you don’t have to. Let us drive your business forward with peace of mind.
