@daveytjonsey and I been largely quiet about the coronavirus because there’s been SO much noise about what’s going on, and we don’t want to contribute to that in an unproductive way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We've been chatting a lot about how we’re going to handle this season as we expect work will likely slow down for a time. And we’re also chatting about the different ways that we might be able to serve people (stay tuned for a few podcast episodes with experts!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If things have slowed down for you, now is a great time to spend some time working on your business. A few ideas to try (many of these are on our list!): ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Brand and website updates (duh): Maybe that’s finishing a new website, revisiting a particular section, or adding a new page like an affiliate/resources page 📷 (we added a template for that to the shop this week!) 2. Updating images and galleries on your website. 3. Creating systems in your business for when things get busy again: Canned emails, workflows, social media/marketing scheduling, etc. 4. Submit work for publication. 5. Reexamine client experience and gifts. Even if you don't buy the gifts right now, you could have a plan in place for when you are ready to make those purchases. 6. Create your first freebie to start a mailing list. @flodesk has a 30-day free trial and @convertkit has a free plan (so it costs nothing to get started!). 7. Create the product you’ve always wanted to create, but haven’t had the time. 8. Start writing blog posts and educational content for your clients. This is a great time to get ahead so you have content for the rest of the year! 9. Connect digitally with industry peers or people you want to work with in the future. Virtual coffees for the win! 10. Read a business book. A few recent favorites: Give & Take, Deep Work, Built to Sell, The Science of Selling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this season has you working on your business instead of in your business, we would love to know what you're working on! Feel free to post below!
We took a trip down to Lexington to check on our house and it’s amazing to see it coming along! Insulation is going in, the doors should arrive this week and sheet rock begins shortly after. Hopefully we’ll be able to call this place “home” come fall! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @bigspringva for hosting us, for taking this photo and for playing Jack’s favorite game (“I’m gonna get you”) to make him laugh!
We have a new line of products available in the shop today! We're excited to introduce our @showit template Iona, Bondi for WordPress and three semi-custom brands!
