True value is something which can be different for many different people. Ultimately, what value comes down to is: Is this product or service improving my life? If so, it’s valuable. If not, it’s not valuable. It’s most commonly as simple as that. Quality of life is a difficult thing to tangibly measure, yet if your business is receiving generally positive feedback from customers, clients, and other businesses; you can bet you’re providing value to their daily life. In this storm, we’ll be discussing the benefits of providing true value to anyone and everyone you choose to conduct business with. We hope you enjoy this post and please feel free to let us know what you thought of it in the comments section below!
Treat Others as You Wish to Be Treated
This is the “Golden Rule” of life. It’s something we’re (ideally) taught at a young age by our parents and teachers, yet it’s often lost somewhere along the way. Most people and businesses would have a vast improvement in overall performance if they were to implement this mantra into their daily routine. Every single person on earth enjoys being treated with respect, dignity, and kindness. If we choose to extend these same principles onto our business model, you can work towards ensuring long-term success.
Treat Your Business Like a Business
Time and time again, we see businesses who come to us and expect us to wave a magic wand where sales are growing month-over-month, customer experience is improving quarter-over-quarter, and bottom line margins have increased year-over-year. Sure, we’ve had many experiences with businesses we’ve chosen to work with here at DASH-SEO. This exact scenario does occur, yet the businesses who have problems will continue to have problems even with excellent SEO strategies. The owner and employees of the businesses we choose to work with need to be committed to operating their business like a business. This means treating your business with the respect it deserves. More often than not, what you put into a decent business model will reciprocate ten-fold over time if you continue to compound said efforts.
Many individuals will sometimes coast on past success and expect the same success for many years to come. Sorry to say this, but that’s not always true. Just as an athlete must continue to work out, train, practice, etc…, a business must do the same to stay ahead of their competitors within their niche. There’s always someone who is waiting to pounce on the opportunity to take your market share. Be the better of your competition and stand tall and proud with the youtube company under your wing. treat your business like a business.
Under Promise, Overdeliver
This piece of advice is often preached, yet rarely practiced. If you follow this advice, you’ll often be seen as very much on top of matters when it comes to the daily operations of your business. Delivering on your promises is hugely important in a world where sometimes businesses will literally ghost their customers. Be the better business and always make good on your promises and if you can, over deliver every chance you can. Many of your customers will remember it and spread the good word of mouth of your business to their colleagues, friends, and family.
Treat Every Client or Customer Equally, Yet Properly Cater to Their Specific Needs Accordingly
This point is obvious, yet many overlook the latter aspect of the advice. Yes, you want to treat every client or customer equal at the baseline, yet those special touches you’re able to impart on the customer experience will really help you stand out in a sea of competitors who are only focus on doing the bare minimum to maintain customer satisfaction.
Zappos is a fantastic example of offering fantastic baseline customer service, yet then extending the customer service experience to custom cater towards the customer needs as they see fit. Many times, customer service operators at Zappos may spend hours on the phone with a customer to help them best identify the right product for their needs. Other times, it may just be a five minute phone call because that’s all the customer wants. Read the room and modify your customer service experience accordingly.
Focus On Positive Action Over Negative Inaction
Being proactive, instead of reactive can be the difference between succeeding and failing with your business. If you ever find yourself sitting around, bored, you’re most likely going to fall into the category of negative inaction. Do better each and every day through the power of positive practice action and you’ll see your problems and issues drop like flies over time. Preparing for the worst, and embracing the best is a quality your company can inherit if you choose to focus on positive action over negative sanction.
Charge the Right Price for Your Product or Service
The right price for your product or service is partially determined by you and partially determined by your customers. If your prices are so high, very few may purchase. If your prices are so low, your business may not be around for much longer. Choose the right balance for both and you’ll find that when you charge the right price, you’ll end up making more money, have less stress, and be able to complete the daily tasks at hand with greater ease and less effort.
Focus On Your Strengths, & Improve Your Weaknesses
We all have strengths, we all have weaknesses. This is a simple fact of life. The sooner we identify our inherent strengths and our inherent weaknesses, the better. Building upon your strengths is easy, You already have the knowledge of what you’re good at. Identifying and eliminating your weaknesses is the difficult part. It may take years to fully eradicate your weaknesses, but let it be known, it’s still very much an achievable undertaking if you strive to improve each and every day. Step out of your comfort zone and push yourself further and further. You may be truly surprised by the results you end up with.
Choose the Right Marketing Strategy
Choosing the right marketing strategy for your business will help you reach the right customer demographic and help your business grow over time. Yes, we’re biased here at DASH-SEO, yet we truly believe SEO is the best marketing strategy for every business.

Social media and PPC campaigns are temporary in their performance (posted one second, gone the next), SEO is seemingly forever as long as the internet still exists and you continue to keep your website up and running.
