7 Items For Your Business Holiday List

BusinessHolidayList1

We make our “to-do” lists, our grocery lists, and even our Christmas lists – but what about our business? Have you created your Business Holiday List for next year?

Studies have shown list makers stay on track and are more organized with their day and with their time.

Here are 7 Holiday Business List items to consider:

1. Schedule Time for You and Your Family
This is extremely important and why it’s #1. When you start your planning and strategizing for next year, make sure you schedule time in your planner time for you and time for the family. Go ahead and block out your vacation time, holiday time, special events….even possible day trips. Get it on the planner. Then work your schedule around your planned time off. Work your business, don’t let your business work you.

2. Implementing Time Saving Tools
Social Media and Online Marketing can really be a time drain if you’re not careful. There are many time saving tools available for keeping you on track. Try using a kitchen timer for setting a specific amount of time to a project and when the buzzer goes off…move to the next project. Also using a scheduling dashboard like Hootsuite can make posting and interacting much easier on your social platforms.

3. Hire a Coach
Starting and even running a business requires so much. There’s the business things to do, the planning, the implementing, the seeing the big picture…

Surprise! Facebook Is Changing…Again!

Facebookchange-again

Surprise Surprise…. Facebook is changing….again! Facebook announced they are making changes to be effective January 2015.

Facebook already limited the organic posts reach (any thing posted that’s not a paid Facebook Ad) so only about 6% or even less…sometimes as little as 2% -3% of your posts were showing up in your viewers newsfeeds.

Now they are going to be limiting posts they (Facebook) thinks are “too promotional”!

So just what does this mean to us as a small business owner and how does it affect our ability to sell our products and services on our Facebook Business pages since we can’t be “too promotional”?

With Facebook’s announcement , starting January 2015 posts they find that are “too promotional” will be limited by Facebook.

Facebook’s found through their surveys that people want more story type posts and less promotional type posts.

Note this is NOT about Facebook Paid advertising or Promoted Posts. It is referring to and involves your organic posts (non- paid Facebook advertising) .

According to Facebooks announcement, there are some consistent traits that make organic posts feel too promotional:

  1. Posts that solely push people to buy a product or install an app. Example would be posts that direct you to specifically purchase of a service, product, or program and have the “Click the link to buy now”..or “Click here to purchase now.”
  2. Posts that push people to enter promotions and sweepstakes with no real context  This…

I met Livvie Matthews online a few years ago. I was following her on Facebook. We would comment and like each other’s posts. She would post social media tips that I began using for my business page. I reached out to Livvie and she encouraged me to do a little at a time and said I was on the right track with how I was doing my online marketing. She provided me with so much information. I was so excited to use what she shared with me. Livvie is very knowledgeable in helping businesses grow their online presence using social media and online marketing. Her programs teach businesses how to leverage their appearance and connections on social media for client attraction and more online visibility. I encourage all business owners to listen and learn from Livvie Matthews. www.JillCoonInc.com
