Hey guys and girls. It has definitely been a while since my last post, and there has been a reason for that….. I’ve been super busy!
I am sure you all know the feeling, especially those small business owners out there, you get all caught up doing work for clients and family and next minute, you realise you have run out of time to pay attention to your own business. Shock horror, how did this happen?!
Easy, you set priorities. For me, its simple. When it comes to my family and the clients that are helping my business grow, I know they get my attention first. Anything I get to do later for my business in terms of online marketing, lead building and networking is a bonus.
This is why I believe it is important to have systems in place that keep running even when you cannot pay them attention. Online ad campaigns are great for this, as well as squeeze pages and scheduled social media posts. Do you use automation and processes to keep your business running even when you feel like you have come to a stop?
What has happened?
In the last few months, I have spent a lot of time with a few new clients that have increased their online marketing spends and campaigns to reach more people, and the time needed for research and campaign building can be quite large. I have also been busy organising the house and our routines with my beautiful princess for our new bub due in November. Super excited! My 1 year old and 13 year old are showing signs of excitement, especially now with the baby bump really showing.
As for the business, we have had our best month in June taking on a host of new clients and campaigns, as well as creating some really nice websites. To top it off, the amount of quotes I am doing is growing, especially since launching our new landing pages. Check out the new sites at www.xmediads.rocks and let me know what you think. I have kept the pages simple, with minimal distractions. Would love your feedback, and thank you to everyone who has commented to me so far. Love your positive words!
What to expect…
So with my business growing up into the star I knew it was destined to be, as well as my family about to welcome a new member, you can expect me to be working my butt off. I have been super lucky to have my partner for life and princess Brydie by my side, and she keeps me heading in the right direction and motivated. With her new ventures taking off as well with herbalenergy.com.au and Herbalife, we are focusing on lifestyle changes and the big picture.
For us, the big picture has always been about making our careers streamline with our family and social life, whilst still allowing us the freedom of time and travel. It has taken a while to get to this point, but finally we are starting to notice the changes. No longer are we tied to set work hours during set times, or having to work out of the one location. Both our businesses allow more of a laptop lifestyle. The more time we put in, the more we get out of it. Does this mean we are tied to our electronic devices? Well, sometimes, but we are in the freedom of our own time and adventures. I could be blogging or creating an ad campaign sitting in a cafe in beautiful Newcastle, or closer to home at one of the beautiful Hunter valley vineyards or cellar door eateries.
My love is sharing what I do, how I do it, and how I can help you with your online marketing adventures, so I guess you can expect more helpful posts on here, as well as across our Facebook pages and social media presence. I make a habit of keeping my business pages personal and not all about business. I’m real, my business is real, and I want my social media pages to come across that way.
