Growing your business doesn't take place in a few days you have to work hard and properly optimize your business. You have to fix the areas where you are currently the worse. Make your business attractive to get more traffic and make them attractive. Check your strategies, don't ignore slower momentum as SEO, content marketing, etc. They give results slowly but after some time the impact is big. When you get traffic, then work to tern them on paying customers.

Completely agree! Its about implementing a content marketing and SEO strategy over time - working out what works best for you and your business. You shouldn't expect results straight away - I think this is somewhat a myth among SEO professionals and small business owners, but if you put the work in, create engaging content that is distributed correctly, you'll will an improvement in customer relationships, traffic to your website and brand reputation.

This is absolutely true. Rome wasn't built in a day so they say. Growing a business takes an unbelievably different level of hard work and dedication. You can't also do it alone so it's a team effort, too.

Once you have your business up and running, you don't just stop there. You look for ways to innovate, you identify areas of opportunities and devise the best way to attack those areas. It's difficult but hard work pays off.
