Then I invite feedback or questions and we point the conversation, and it is a dialogue, seeking the eureka moment. The client can then choose how to act on the findings, knowing the inputs were not simply somebody...

16 ways to get more subscribers SusanDay 2 1 yearBelew (10924): Add these up and they will take a lot more than 5 minutes. 8-( Most of them require you to give something in order to get the reader/visitor to subscribe. That 'something' takes a lot of good effort to create and make available. Ultimately, if you want people to follow you, you have to give them a really good reason to do so.
