HOW This question also belongs in top 3. How demands a method or a plan.
Examples: How can I improve look of my web site? How can I sharpen that advertising headline? How can I reach $X of sales this month?
WHEN This one is also a heavyweight because it creates urgency, action! It's great antidote for procrastination. It calls for a deadline!
Examples: When will I employ that new business plan? When am I going to optimize my web site? When am I going to research a new product line?
The 3 secondary question devices:
WHO/WHICH Who helps you organize assistance and support! Which helps narrow down choices.
Examples: Who is best person to help me with this project? Which organization or company can give me services/support I require? Who is going to buy this product? Who is going to be attracted by this advert? Which font will look best on this website? Which color best suits my web site theme?
WHERE Where gets us thinking about location and position.
Examples: Where do I want my business to be in 1 month's time? Where can I find best merchant bank on internet? Where are prospective customers going to look for me? Where are most of my hits coming from?
WHAT What challenges brain to come up with facts! This makes analysis much more accurate.
Examples: What marketing methods are my competitors using right now? What is first impression a visitor receives when arriving at my web site? What is percentage click thru rate from my banner ads? What is best price for this product?
If you subject your business to full force of this kind of question blasting, your business will never remain same. Questions provoke thought, change, improvement.
Using above format, take 10 minutes of quiet time today and ignite explosive power of questions under your business!
