    I particularly like #3 – get the email addresses! This way you can DIRECTLY market to those consumers who are already “hot” for you. But you have to use them on a regular and consistent basis (i.e. send them a short e-newsletter 2x a month). Don’t just use those email addresses when you’ve cooked up a promotion because you need business. 🙂

    I also totally agree with #6, too. With today’s cheaper and easier technology, there is absolutely no reason why businesses can’t be “tweaking” their website often to continually improve it.

    As always, great tips, Darren! Thanks!

      Thats why paying too much attention to one form of lead source (Google) is detrimental to your business! Thank Chris!

      Google did that exact thing too me. They removed my listing “pending” further investigation. 15 calls per day from that local listing alone.. too zero.
