Do you know the true value of your client?
Do you know what your client is really worth to you?
What do we mean by that? Let me explain.
Do you have clients that provide you once off revenue/ yearly revenue or monthly revenue? Why do we ask? It's because there is a very big difference in the value of them over a 12 month period that's why.
Take for example a tax accountant that just does your end of year tax versus a bookkeeper that does the books on a monthly basis (note that any tax accountant that doesn't have a bookkeeper on the payroll or doesn't do it themselves have rocks in they heads based on the below).
Let's just say that the tax accountant that does your yearly tax and makes $500 profit. Let's also say that the bookke

Create your own reality
Want to bust out of the rat race?
Maybe you feel like you are unappreciated in your current role or maybe you are busy building someone else's dream, whatever the case we hear you loud and clear.
Do you have a passion but just not sure if you can pursue it? We don't want to tell you what to do or give any advise but we can tell you what we did.
We were sick and tired of building wealth for other companies and decided to do it for ourselves by setting up our own niche. We set up an online marketing company focused around SEO for the Gold Coast market.

Looking for more business for your business?
Do you have a business that needs new business to stay in business? It seems like a straight forward question but it isn't. What do we mean by that?
Well, are you a business that has return client business that you generate your income from or do you need to find new business constantly to stay afloat?

At Straight Up Marketing, we are a business that needs new business. We aren't ashamed in any way to admit that, quite the c
