Results Are Worth A Thousand Words…

social media case study

In my last post I shared an easy way to create social graphics, and shared an infographic I created for my low carb blog. I used these templates to create both graphics I shared as an example in that post. Cool enough as is, but I thought you'd be interested in seeing the results & statistics :D ...

(EASY) Create Stunning Social Media Graphics

creating graphicsI'm having tons of fun creating social media graphics!

Let me start by saying... I stink at graphics. :P It is definitely NOT my strong suit. That being the case, I'm inclined to outsource creative graphics for my social media channels.

Why? Quality graphics, images & Infographics are great for "share bait"! They also get a much higher rate of engagement than other types of social media updates (such as text updates or links) across all platforms.

Outsourcing graphics is a great idea, but that can get REALLY expensive if you're putting out the amount of image content you really need to be across the web - consistently.

My solution: Graphic Templates!

Better yet, CHEAP Graphic Templates! :D

And unlike outsourcing, it's a one time low-cost investment instead of an ongoing expense. I'll show you some live examples, and where you can get these graphics packages super cheap...

2015 Weekly Challenge: BIG Ambitious Goals!

In my post with the fun Goal Setting Exercise I challenged you to do ONE BIG THING in your business every single week for the rest of the year.

This weekly "mini-goal task" should be something outside your usual tasks, outside your comfort zone even, and specifically a money task or a business-building task.

What ONE big thing are you going to tackle in YOUR business this week? :D

The goal is to set aside 30, 60 or 90 minutes at the same time every week and challenge yourself to do something seriously ambitious in your business...

Outlining Your Priorities, Goals & Tasks

I had an interesting discussion in a recent Brainstorming Hour session about the difference between priorities, goals and tasks. This is an important distinction as you set out to create the life you want, or the success you desire in your business...

  • A priority is something you consider more important than other things, it takes precedence over other things in your life.
  • A goal is the object of your ambition, the desired end result.
  • Tasks of course are the steps you take, the things you do, to reach that goal.

This may seem obvious, but the distinction is key when you sit down with a head full of thoughts & ideas to brainstorm the direction you want to take your life.

See the "Evernote Productivity Tips" at the end of this post. You'll learn my simple system to "gamify" your priorities and stay on task! ;-)

Listia: Trade Your Old Stuff for New Stuff – Free!

ListiaIn my ongoing effort to organize and "get my home and work space in order" I came across Listia. It's similar to eBay... except everything on Listia is totally free!

The site runs on credits, so there is no exchange of money. You simply "trade" items you no longer want, for items you do want. How cool is that?! :D

As a bonus, you'll get 1000 credits when you sign up and another 500 credits when you list your first item - so you can go ahead and start shopping right away.

You can find everything from books to antiques, computers and electronics, basically anything you can imagine! You buy/sell through credits. So you can get rid of things you're not using, and get things you want - without spending a dime!
