Today I was chatting with a new client about the redesign of her website, theirs is pretty dated so we’re working on a rebrand of their identity and logo as well as adding in a whole lot more marketing strategy into the mix.

We were discussing her home page and what makes a home page effective in today’s fast paced, gimme now, economy.

This is where I came to the realization that I needed to share with you.

When it comes to marketing your business online, we usually recommend that for any campaign you’re running that we create a specific landing page for that ad campaign so that when customers click on your ad, that they’re taken to a page that’s specific to that ad and to their needs.

Presumably they’ve clicked on the link, because there’s something in the ad that has caught their eye and promises a solution to a problem they’re facing. Now a problem can be anything from needing a vegan butter spread, to a marketing overhaul of their business to back pain, or weight loss.

Usually sending them to your home page (which is generic in focus) is not the best marketing move.

My next answer is: What have you done to prove why googl....

There were so many story lines coming together and so many exciting plots.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to spoil anything for anyone, but watching everything unfold made me think of a business / life lesson.

But first…

Any thoughts on what it might be? What would you do if you were in “The Game”, for the throne?

What do you think would be the number one thing that would get you closer to that throne?

What if we thought of the Throne as you business or life goals, your dreams that you want to achieve?

The number one thing that would get you toward that throne would be…

Let's talk about money again... Specifically your rates and why you shouldn't discount them. 

We've all been there, we meet a new client, they seem to have a great project, we give them a quote or a proposal and... they say we're too expensive, but they really want to work with us. 

So what do you do? You know besides telling them to take a hike?

Unfortunately everyone from musicians to writers, designers and plumbers, it's something we all need to tackle. It's a skill you're better off learning now. 

To start, read today's post.

Sometimes to get the things done that we need to do, we need to become someone else. Our current self just isn't in the headspace and motivation space to make choice to GET IT DONE!

So what do you do?

Who do you need to become in order to make things happen and get the very imporant, yet rarely done things completed?

You need to stop putting it off, and you can do that by becoming someone else. Become your alter ego....
