Inspiration…all in a days work

Where do you get your inspiration from? Do you have a ‘zone’ you go into at work that allows you to dig deep, find creative ideas and then it all flows. Or do you have strategic meetings with co workers and that is where you get your inspiration from.

Well, I work for myself, so inspiration is a HUGE thing on my checklist. Today i was fortunate enough to meet with Jazskimo Creative (http://www.jazskimocreative.com) who works in similar field that I do, however Jazskimo is located in Singapore. It was enlightening to meet with her and we bounced ideas off each other in respect to marketing and self employment ideas…also we discussed the self inspiration tools.

This week has been a huge week of inspiration for my business. I have met with new and existing clients, shared marketing ideas with people who have huge potential to grow their business, and kicked some personal goals also.

But when I don’t have scheduled meetings, or clients to phone and inspire, where do i find it. Ill tell you…

I research….head down and all systems go. I read articles, I find potential companies I know I can help, I make appointments with people and discuss the huge benefits that Social Media can have for their business, more importantly, how Popfizzle can help their business. Right there, I have found my own little blue sky, my very own pocket rocket of inspiration. And I can tell you right now…it works!

Tell me what works for you…perhaps this already has? 🙂

Happy New Year – 2014

Happy New Year everyone. I know I haven’t posted for months now, But I have been snowed under with work and need to make a conscious effort to keep my cyber/blogging network updated on all events. Once a month, at least, it will happen. There is a very legit reason though, I have been soaring businesses into the cyber world, so there is more and more people joining us. Which reminds me, I must update my portfolio…very soon for you all to see what i have been working on.

So I’m sure your busting for some new fun facts and also more reason for me to convince you to join Social Media for your business and more importantly, hire me as your Social Media Manager…..really, you didn’t think i’d plug my own business, well a new year, new me 🙂

Think its not important to have your website user friendly? Think again, Smartphones is what we use most of the time now, look at this; Mobile now makes up the majority of email opens at 51%.

Not an apple fan? Still not convinced…check this out..25% of all emails are opened on an iPhone. The iPhone is still king.

Do you find yourself shutting down your email, then walking away with your phone only to check your emails on there again? I do. Clearly I make up some of 61% of webmail users open email on a mobile device.

I have said it so many times before. Use more pictures. Design flyers with statistics and adverts and make them vibrant and appealing to the eye, give your reader what they want. They want to see what you are selling, what you are discussing….With Outlook and Android securing the second and third spots in market share, upwards of one-third of your emails are likely opened with images disabled. That makes defensive design techniques like HTML text and alt text a must.

That should keep your mind ticking over for now, this should make you look through your website, see how you are going with whats ‘stale’ and what is appealing to the eye. Check your Social Media, have you crossed all your T’s and dotted the I’s? You know Popfizzle can give your Social Media Networks a once over Summer clean prepping you for the year, you never know, I may just have some sharp marketing ideas for you too 🙂

Happy New Year Everyone 🙂

Social Media

Social Media, what is it? Why do you need it? Why does my Friday night consist of talking to friends around the dinner table about Facebook, twitter, Flickr, blogging and so on: does this sound like common questions you ask yourself? Our everyday lives now are about Social Media, who’s on it, what can we do on it, and most importantly…how does it work?

Popfizzle can manage your Social Media Accounts. We offer two different types of platforms; we offer a set up of your Social Media Accounts, and 2 hours training to show you how they all tie in together and how to drive them yourself in the future.

The second option we have, which seems more common, is we will manage your social networks for you. Social Media can be time consuming, especially if you are unaware of how to find your way around it, or how to repair it, how to create more avenues for your business.

Send popfizzle an email today to discuss the options further and take the pressure off yourself and allow us to send your business soaring through the Social Media Networks for you.
