How well do you know the character behind your typical customer?

And why is it so important for a smaller business to accurately identify and understand your own target audience?

In today’s new Blog post, I take a look at some of the peculiar results that emerged down at Smokey Joe’s Business Bar when a small group of us attempted to sketch detailed character profiles of our perfect customers.

I also reveal some of the questions you could be considering when researching your own perfect breed of client…
Why failing to accurately identify your target audience is bad for your business.

I’d like to push you for your opinion…

Would you describe yourself as a Pushy Person?
Are pushy business owners more likely to succeed or fail?
And do you need to be more pushy or less pushy?

Well, perhaps it all depends on which way you’re pushing…

(Well, you’ll actually need to click on the link but you know what I mean.)
Do you need to be far more Pushy in business?

Have you ever asked a slightly bizarre question to a potential future employee during the interview process?
Or have you ever been at the receiving end of a seemingly nutty question in the past?

In this week’s new Blog post, I go back into the mists of time and reveal the very first words I ever said to Martin Print’s resident caretaker, Old Bert.
Was my opening question a huge mistake?

I also take a look at the top ten most outlandish interview questions of 2015, along with some of the most interesting answers from the poor confused candidates…

But what’s the most unusual interview question you’ve ever asked or been asked?

Can you give me a bit of feedback?
I’ve been giving a lot of feedback this week to fellow business owners who have been struggling to find the best way of delivering constructive feedback to their own employees.
So I’d appreciate your feedback on my feedback to their feedback issues….

In the business workplace, one of the most valuable traits of strong leadership is the ability to convey genuinely useful feedback in the best possible way for everyone concerned.

Unfortunately, there are so many different ways of getting it wrong and turning a slightly fragile situation into an outright catastrophe…

Here’s my own feedback on where some of these business owners have been taking a wrong turn with their feedback…
How NOT to deliver constructive feedback to your valued business employees.

Are you overlooking the value of Old-School Marketing in the digital age?
And are too many business owners wrongly dismissing certain types of traditional marketing as old-hat and out of date?

Let’s take a trip back to the Old School to discover which classic marketing strategies still have plenty of relevance to your business today.
We may even find a slice of traditional marketing which has somehow become even more powerful in 2015 than ever before…

(Please note that this Blog article will be made obsolete in the year 2525, so please ensure that you find the time to read it before this expiry date.)

Imagine that one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs offered to invest $400,000 into your business on a hit TV show.
Sounds tempting…but what if the deal just wasn’t quite right for you?

That was the dilemma faced by Dean Salakas from The Party People during his TV pitch last week on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank.

Martin Print Blog caught up with Dean after the show for an exclusive chat in which the Chief Party Dude reveals why he has no regrets about turning his back on a $400,000 investment from the TV Sharks…

Which type of Stamp is likely to make the best impression for your business?

Self-Inking. Adjustable Date. Traditional Hand-Style. Multi-Colour. Selectable Phrase. Yellow ones with big red handles.
The huge array of models and options can initially seem a little bewildering to the Stamp newbie.

The good news is that selecting your ideal Custom Stamp is easier than you might think.

Here’s the quick beginner’s guide to choosing your perfect Stamp…

Can it really be true that the good old-fashioned…
Oh hang on a minute, my phone is ringing. I just need to deal with this.

Right, I’m back. Where was I?
Oh yes. Can it really be true that the good old-fashioned telephone conversation is still far more appealing than the emails and tweets and Facebook messages of the modern digital universe?

A new report has revealed just how much a typical consumer is itching to speak to you and your business on the telephone.

But how many businesses are choosing to hang up on this golden opportunity?

Here’s how to make the right call for your business and your customers…
Your customers are ready to talk…but is YOUR business ready to listen?

Hands up who enjoys hassling customers about late payments?
Hmm. It’s all gone very quiet.
It’s perhaps fair to assume that chasing up overdue payments is not exactly one of the biggest pleasures of running your own business.

But here’s a controversial suggestion;
Are small business owners amongst the biggest culprits of all when it comes to failing to pay suppliers on time?

Today’s new article from the Blog reveals the facts and figures which indicates that small business owners are just as likely to be the perpetrators as they are the victims.

I’ll also be taking a look at some quick tips and pointers on how you can increase your chances of actually getting paid on time for your hard work…

But how often do YOU have to deal with late payments for your services?
And do you always pay your bills to fellow businesses on time every time?
But could we business owners be the worst offenders of all?
