5 Business Blog Posts You Can Write This Week

Making time for your business blog is important to carve out. If you can’t block out time on a weekly basis, consider setting one day a month aside to knock out 4-5 blog posts for the month.

Here are five compelling blog posts to create:

  1. Meet the Staff: If you have not shared an update recently this is a nice one to kick off the year. Include a photo. Highlight loyalty, expertise, fun facts so the overall post conveys a tone of smarts and approachability of you and your staff.
  2. Client Story: Case studies are a great way to show the value your product or service. Highlight details in their use that aren’t a may have not been shared in a brochure or guide. Be sure to ask for a quote form the client and their permission to share their post. With a link to their site, it’s a good promotional opportunity for their business too.
  3. Company Outlook: Give an update on what’s happening in your company over the next 60 days. Trade shows or conferences you’ll be attending, new product lines, any sales events to keep an eye out for, etc. If you do this kind of post, add to your schedule now to do this every two months for the remainder of the year.
  4. 5 Steps to a Better ____: Share your industry expertise by providing tips on one of the issues that often plagues your clients.
  5. Showcase a new feature or update: Part of having a blog is to keep customers updated on key aspects of your business and its offerings. When you have good news or exciting developments, share them!

4 Tips when You Get Sidetracked

4 Tips when You Get Sidetracked

We distract ourselves. Others interrupt us. Losing focus is a part of the daily business grind. But there are ways we can get back into the zone.

This past week I’ve been developing a business plan, conducting research and creating a brand identity for a retail gift store. The problem? I created this store out of thin air!

This is how I become sidetracked – I “google” something, get interested and suddenly I’m down a rabbit hole of brainstorming and idea generating.

I love the concept I created and it may very well come to fruition but the fact is I currently have a company I could be focusing on when existing client work is complete. That company is my own.

Does this happen to you? Do you find yourself suddenly obsessed with inventory counts when really you should be reviewing last month’s sales? Or worried about the cleanliness of baseboards when sales calls are begging to be made.

When we become sidetracked the only one we hurt, is, yep, that face in the mirror. So how do we avoid losing focus? Try one of these (hey, I AM blogging right now so they do work).

Give the interruption an appointment. It is okay to say “Thanks for your call/visit. I am not able speak with you right now but can we talk/meet at 3pm instead?” You just postponed a distraction.

Plan for distractions and interruptions. If you work in an interruption-rich culture or much of your actual job is putting out “fires”, avoiding interruptions will provide difficult. So plan them into your schedule by blocking time, usually in the morning or at shift changes for interruptions. During this time, float through the office or work on lighter tasks like checking emails, blogs, etc.

Conversely, create do-not-disturb, office hours. Get strict about your time and make it known to friends, family and work colleagues when you cannot be disturbed. Use an actual “do not disturb” sign on your door, physically close your door, hunch down, hide and get to work. Sometimes in the zany, often loud, ad agency, I escaped to another location when writing an important brief. Feel guilty? You can place a sign-up sheet for people that stop by and share when you’ll re-surface for air.

Have a post-it note brainstorm. When tasks seem huge or overly abundant, I take a blank wall, a pad of post-its and pen in hand. I start jotting down actions – one to every post-it. What will be the next action, and the next, and the next. Seeing it all before me keeps me focused. And when an action gets accomplished, that post-it gets pulled down. Making my progress tangible.
