What Are You Doing To Shake Things Up in you business? Now here is the catch 22.

So if you are changing things up a lot, you may be losing quite a few customers……but that depends on your customers. There are certain niches that have a whole lot more than of one type than others. The kicker is knowing your customer base.
For instance, most Entrepreneurs are Difference people in that they thrive on difference and change. So, if you are selling to them theb you want to put “New” and “Improved” whereas if the audience is the “Sameness” pattern, then you definitely do not want to use those terms.

There is a lot more to it and I highly recommend it. You will never look at marketing the same way again.
Be that as it may, you still may want to change things up from time to time to make sure that you are not getting stale.
