Are You Standing In Your Own Way?

Jenni here, and over the last couple of weeks, I have heard myself saying a similar phrase to three or four different clients: What is going to be the shortest route to success? My goal in asking this is to stop and perform a simple gut check. Are we standing in our own way? Proposing this question can compel our entire team to re-examine our goals, to identify what success looks like, and to focus on the key components that have impact?

Small Businesses that Rock Instagram

Instagram is the main social media platform we use, as a B2B marketing agency, to build awareness about what we do as business owners and promote our expertise as marketers. Instagram is a great social platform for promoting visual content to sell your products or services, which we do on behalf of our clients on a regular basis. While it is important to capture moments as they happen, you also need the ability to schedule some of your content ahead of time, especially when you will be busy in a client meeting or hosting a workshop (more on that later).  But how do you make life easier by scheduling posts ahead of time rather than dropping everything to post in real time?

Start Your Blog Today: Best Times To Promote Your Blog Post on Social Media

Sophie here: rounding up the final installment of our ‘Start Your Blog Today’ blog series by explaining when and how to promote your blog posts on social media.

So far in this blog series we have covered some ground: Part One was about how to set a plan of attack for your blog by setting clear objectives and deciding on what content will be most valuable to your readers. Part Two we discussed carving out time in your week to write your posts and ways to delegate the work if needed. By now you should have a few blogs written and pre-loaded, and now you are ready to share them with the world. But when and how?

As you have gone through our blogging method so far, we've asked you to think of your type of target market or dream customer and tailor your blogs to them and their lifestyle. The same applies for when you go through the process of deciding when to tell your audience about your blog post.

Start Your Blog Today - How Much Time Should I Spend Blogging?

Start Your Blog Today - How Much Time Should I Spend Blogging?

The major hesitation we hear from business owners about starting a company blog is the time commitment it’s going to take to sit down and create quality content. Jenni here, with our second installment of our blog series: How to Start Your Blog Today (Check out Part One here). Today we're going to talk about how much time you should spend on blogging, and making sure you actually make the time.

As experts, we know the importance of creating quality content for our clients, but we’re also small business owners ourselves: We have to make calls, take meetings, network, balance our bank accounts, and have days where we feel like we’re pulled in 200 directions. So even though we help our clients face these issues, we’re no strangers to them ourselves. We get heart palpitations too when thinking of how much time it can take to keep up with companies that have an entire team of people dedicated to writing articles.
