So let’s talk time-saving hacks, also known as everything you need to know about creating outstanding digital content FAST.

Did you know that the average business owner spends 11,000 hours a week dilly-dallying about online?

I meet a fair few business owners who dream of the day they can have a team to help them out.

Repurposing content is a pretty hot topic and has been for a while. I think it appeals to all of us who consider ourselves BUSY AF.

There’s a danger though, a temptation to regurgitate the same stuff in different places.

Content overwhelm is a very real beast.

It’s like we’re all standing in front of a ball machine, weaving and ducking as we try to escape the must do marketing hacks hurtling our way.

The only thing is, that ball machine will never switch off… and if you don’t take the necessary steps to get out of dodge, you’ll end up covered in bruises and possibly unconscious.

As we hurtle around the New Year, I think it’s time for the ubiquitous goal-setting post. But I hope that mine actually helps you TAKE ACTION.

We all (or at least I) like to have a bit of a overhaul at the end of each year. It’s the ultimate “fresh notebook” feeling, giving you the space for bigger, better plans.

Goodreads.com is one of my favourite-ever places to procrastinate online.  Goodreads is a less well-known social platform that is focused around books, and the haunting ground of many an avid reader. It’s a great way to find literary quotes, it’s a great way to track your reading habits, and it’s a great way to find lots and lots of books you want to read.

Content Conquered is a series of mini-posts designed to ignite content ideas and inspire you to get creative online.

If we’re all truly, brutally, honest, we all spend a lot of time dicking about on Facebook.

When you run your own business, it tends to be all-consuming. We tend to spend a lot of our “free” time working. Drafting blog posts. Checking emails. Filing documents. Chatting with clients and colleagues. Doing biz-related e-courses.

 

We justify it by saying we find those things fun. We enjoy our work, so it counts as a hobby, right?
