It's been a few weeks since my last blog, so I thought I'd just go with an update of what's been happening in that crazy crazy time!
Today I thought I’d write a little about TidyMedia’s "other" interest - start-ups and small/local business.
At the time of writing, it’s been six months since I was made redundant and decided to set out on my own. In that time, I’ve tried to do the best job I can by getting as much help and support as possible. And trust me, there’s lots out there. Some, admittedly, is only available to me because I was made redundant, but there’s a lot that’s available to every budding entrepreneur with a viable business idea.
Today’s post will have a predominantly Welsh slant, as I’m writing from my own personal experience, and that’s where I’m based. I’d like to hope that wherever you are, there will be similar support available.
As well as being a social media & digital marketer, I’m also, mostly, a home-worker. In the (nearly) six months since I was made redundant and started up TidyMedia, I’ve learned a few home truths about working from home. See what I did there?
I can’t claim to be the utmost authority on the topic, but if you’ll allow me the small indulgence, I’d like to share a few top tips from my own experience that work to boost my producitivity, so probably will for you, too!
We’ve all been there. You’re slogging away, working your fingers to the bone, wondering how your competitors seem to be doing better than you! What is it about their social media ads that draws customers in? You may only have seen one or two of their ads, and either been reeled in or turned off. But that’s rarely the full picture. Are they running more ads that you haven’t seen? What if you could see them all?
