Hi, I’m Matt with EWA. Today we are talking about five tips for small business owners. With the great resignation going on, business is becoming more and more difficult to retain good talent. And a lot of clients have given us the feedback that the business is running them versus is them running the business.
So I have narrowed this down to five tips. Where our most highly successful clients, what they’ve done commonalities they have that they’re running the business very successfully. We see growth, we see retention.

And the one commonality we found is that the firm overall, so not just the salesperson, but once the client becomes a client, it’s the client experience, it’s the high level touch point, it’s the concierge feelings that the clients are left with.
This will produce word of mouth, which is ten or sometimes 100 times more powerful than doing advertising or marketing to cold prospects. So making the firm the rainmaker, which really goes back to tip number one, having the right system in place.
