5 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Facebook

Facebook is the number 1 social media network. Everyone has heard of it and everyone should be on it, especially if you have a business.

5 reasons why you need to be on Facebook

1. There are 400 million global users, and counting, on Facebook. That’s 400 million people you can potentially market your product/service to. To put it into perspective, if Facebook was a country, it would be the third-largest country in the world!

2. The average amount of time someone uses Facebook a day is 55 minutes. Nearly 1 hour per day, per user and you only need 1 minute to grab the consumer’s attention.

3. Like Twitter, Facebook is a resource for no cost marketing. Aside the option for paid advertisements, Facebook is 100% free to use no matter how much you use it to gain more traffic, more Likes and more paying customers.

4. Become more visible. If you’re consistently posting, frequently showing up on user’s timeline and uploading relevant and interesting information, you will increase your visibility and credibility – the more you post, the harder it is for people to forget you!

5. Build those key relationships with your customers. The more you interact with your consumers, the more you will learn how to adapt your marketing and business services to meet their needs and the more likely they are to be a repeat customer of yours.

These are just a few reasons from a long list of reasons why you should be on Facebook but we hope you have found this useful.

5 Reasons Why You Should Be Tweeting

5 Reasons Why You Should Be Tweeting

If you’re not on Twitter, you’re definitely missing out! There are many reasons why you and your business should be on one of the most popular social networks.

5 reasons why you should be on Twitter

1. You can connect with your customers. This is one of the main reasons why you should be using Twitter for your business. You can personally talk to customers (or potential customers), create a relationship with consumers and keep tabs on what people are saying about your product and/or service.

2. It’s free marketing! Surely this is reason enough to set up your account right now. You don’t have to pay to be part of the Twitterverse and you can market your product and/or services to your hearts content with the safe knowledge you’re not spending any money.

It’s All About Juggling

It’s All About Juggling

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls — family, health, friends, and spirit — are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”

Brian Dyson, former vice chairman and COO of Coca-Cola

Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You

Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote from the longest-serving First Lady of the United States (b.1894 – d.1962) appeals to me. I’m assuming she isn’t talking about looking at the magnifying side of your vanity mirror, first thing in the morning – although, in my case, it is increasingly terrifying, but more about pushing out of your comfort zone as a matter of form.

Many people have a comfort zone which is cosily small. We are creatures of habit, after all. We may not have approached the time when we would admit to having a favourite chair, but we probably do favour a particular side of the dining table, a preferred spot on the sofa, and like our pillows to be a certain height and width. We know what foods we like, what drinks we can drink with impunity, and which ones we have to avoid before memories of teenage experimentation come back to haunt us. The average Brit has a recipe repertoire of 4.5 dishes – disturbingly limited given the quantity of recipe books available and our collective love for master chefs. If 14.5 million of us sat down to watch the Great British Bake Off finale, then why do we still feel accomplished about turning out our tried and tested Victoria sponge cakes?

Getting The Balance Right

Getting The Balance Right

“Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.” ―First Lady Michelle Obama

Last week I finally made it to a Pilates class. When I say ‘made it’, it was not without a huge amount of planning and luck. My gym has a ‘first come, first served’ policy on booking into classes and somehow I am never first. Or even last. I am always on the waiting list for a call that never comes unless the roads are blocked with a foot of snow, or there has been a ‘flu epidemic that has taken down 20% of the population. Luckily last week there was a heat wave, and the weekly regulars seem to vote, en masse to enjoy the sun in person, not through the window of the gym’s sweltering studio. As usual, I was the un-coordinated one who failed to get my arms swinging in opposite directions in the warm-up and the only one who couldn’t lift her shoulders off the mat in the sit-up section. Still, I don’t get to the gym very often, and I was very, very good at the lying on the floor and breathing bits.
