Cats have taught me a few things…

As some of you may know I am a cat Parent.

Living with four cats has taught me a few things…

Cats love routine…

They like to eat sleep and go for walks at the same time each day…

They even like to sleep in the same spots at the same time of day round the house…

Here’s the weird thing…

As a marketer I’ve always found that routine can massively help my productivity…

It’s very similar to when you get into the flow with something…

When I start something new I find it really hard…

But if I do that same task every day it soon becomes easy…

Even if I stop writing newsletters for a couple of weeks…

I find it really hard to start again….

However if I write every day it becomes easier and easier…

One thing I’ve always been really bad at is social media…

We all know social media works…

But who has the time to take photos of their dinner and post it on Instagram or Facebook?

I guess one of the reasons I’m bad at social media is…

Because I don’t post very often…

So over the next couple of months I making a big effort to post several times a day everyday…

Okay so I will not be posting about what I had for dinner!!

But what I will be doing is posting about,

  • Inspirational stuff…
  • Tutorials…
  • Videos
  • And of course being a marketer I’ll also be posting sales posts…

I started posting yesterday…

The first post was really hard…

But today it’s already getting easier…

You can follow what I’m doing on Facebook,

I would really appreciate it if you would like my page…

I think I’ll probably create a couple of debrief videos explaining a little bit more about my results in a few weeks time…

Adventures In Tiling

Hopefully this weekend I will finally finish tiling one of the bathrooms in our holiday house next door.

I have finished all of the floor-to-ceiling tiles including the grouting…

The only thing left are the mosaic tiles for the floor…

The floor was really uneven…

I had to lay a self levelling compound earlier in the week and it’s only just dried out…

It’s kind of weird…

A couple of months ago I knew nothing about tiling…

But because of the Internet I’ve been able to watch loads of tutorial videos on YouTube…

I love learning new things!!

The next job is tiling bathroom number three…

This is a larger bathroom however I think it will be a quick job as there are less tiles to cut…

How Can This Be ?

Since 2008 my main focus has been on email marketing.

However things are and do change…

Email open and click through rates are down…

However my profits are up?

I’ve made a video explaining why this is…

Click here to watch it 🙂

Have a great weekend whatever you’re doing,
