By now youíre probably thinking either of two things: this is a lot to think about and deal with, or alternately, this sounds like a no-brainer and I can handle it all myself.

Well, both scenarios are correct. It IS a lot to think about and tinker with. And YES, you probably could do it all by yourself, or at least with a little help from friends along the way. But thereíd be a lot of trial and error. Moreover, how much is your time worth? Wouldnít it be better spent on that conference call or motivating the sales staff?

Over to you.
