The truth is every business reaches a plateau at some point. That's just how it is. However, there are things you can do to breathe new life in it. The key is to think out of the box and think differently than the options you have already tried. Getting an outside counsel is one option that can help bring in a fresh perspective. "
Agree with these excellent suggestions. The key to dealing with difficult customers is not to engage with them in the argument match because that is what they are looking for. At the end it will only hurt you and your business. Instead try to take a gentle approach and ensure it doesn't impact the rest of customers and your business. "
These are all excellent ideas. One thing you have to keep in mind - you will not get lot of visitors to your blog overnight. Building an audience is a long-term process. You have to keep at it for some time while working on these ideas in parallel. Also, engaging with your audience in a two-way communication helps build engagement and audience. "
Kosia - Excellent advice and agree with you completely. One point to keep in mind is that your energy level is different at different times of the day. You need to make the best use of your energy when it is, line in the morning, and keep the tasks that do not demand high attention for the time when energy level is low. "
Having a blog definitely helps small business owners with marketing and engaging with customers.

It does need extra effort and time , but it is well worth spent."
Lisa - Thanks for sharing. Excellent advice for any new entrepreneur. I can personally relate to these. The last mistake on networking is very important. You not only have to do it online with social media, but offline networking plays a big role in success as well. "
Karon - Customer journey maps are invaluable tools that any business can develop to get better handle on their target market and develop right approach to communicate to them. Many small business owners fail to spend time to develop the right approach and jump into marketing to anyone and everyone, which ends up in inefficient marketing effort and wasted dollars. "
