Creative people that own a business are often flooded with lots of ideas and plans of what they want to implement for their business, website, and marketing. Sometimes when you have so many great ideas you can get so overwhelmed that you end up doing nothing! But I have put together 5 tips of what you can do to move forward.
5 things to do for you and your business
Comparision is the thief of joy! Get confident in defining your own unique business. Whatever you are doing with your creative business, be you. Certainly, you will look at others in your field but when the dust settles, make it your own style and flavor.
Revisit Your Ideal Client and Your Ideal Business
I challenge people to rethink their “ideal client” because their ideal client profile may actually be too narrow in scope.
Do A Small Blog Post
I don’t mean start a blog post and then get distracted and save it in drafts! Take an hour and do a blog post about one the things on your big ideas list.
Take care of the little things in your post:
- Name your image the same as your blog post title for SEO
- Assign a category to your blog post
- Add relevant categories to your post
- Share your post on your social networks
Sign Up For RecurPost To Handle Basic Social Posting
First, I am not a fan of “set it and forget it” social posting because that is not what social media is about. But, if you want your voice to be heard on a daily basis this is a great option when you are busy.
How To Use RecurPost:
This social media scheduling tool is free for up to three accounts. I recommend setting up Twitter, your Facebook Page, and LinkedIn as your three social media accounts. Then load RecurPost with 14-21 snips of your content, your thoughts, pieces of your blog posts, snips of your business and then set it to post daily. You can set the content to expire at a certain date and then go back and reload. Don’t worry, it will save all of your expired content for later use! Check out Recurpost.
Reach out to an old friend to see how they are doing. Send a real Hallmark card to a family member. Touch base with someone in your field and find out if there is a good upcoming conference or workshop coming up.
