Happy New Year!
Sharing a great article that discusses the latest in digital trends for businesses. It is worth a read as you navigate through your new 2018 marketing plan. Do your customers want more technology or less?
In my opinion, one of the strongest ways to showcase your personality or company knowledge is blogging. People are constantly looking for advice and if you can provide them with the information they desire on a certain subject, you will become someone they will look to in the future for advice. This is the best way to create followers by consistently providing them information that they can use in their daily lives. Maybe you just want to provide fun, humorous, or personal advice, many people love to escape from reality by reading blogs that are not so serious.
If you are not a writer, find someone to write for you or ask other experts in your field to write for your blog. Just sharing others knowledge in your industry can be helpful to readers.
After going back to school two years ago for my Master’s Degree in Internet Marketing, I realized that my industry had changed 100% since college 24 years ago. With the addition of smart phones and technology, I have to continue to stay on top of the latest marketing trends and skills. I will continue to educate myself, and one of the best ways I have found to do this is reading blogs.
Following experts that have been successful at blogging is a great tool to learn how to grow your brand. Reading about what they have done that works or does not will help you grow your blog even faster. If you would like to learn more about blogging from two experts, Heather and Pete Reese, I have found them invaluable. I am currently enrolled in their blogging class, and it has provided me with tons of valuable resources. My mantra: you are never too old to learn something new.

A new year always prompts people to think about changes they should be making in their business, especially when it comes to social media. I have been asked this question several times recently by clients and found an article by MarketingProfs that provides some great insight to think about. Enjoy!
I never set out be an entrepreneur. However, I have been blessed to spend the last 14 years working remotely and most importantly, spending extra time with my kids while they are young. After leaving the corporate world in 2002, freelancing has truly been one of the best but toughest jobs I have ever held. Yet, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I have worked with some great companies over the years. This summer, I was lucky enough to find Worldwide101. They were recently recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur 360™ List.
I work as a Virtual Assistant specializing in Marketing and Social Media. I thoroughly enjoy working with different clients from around the globe. If you are a small to medium sized business looking for extra help, I encourage you to look at Worldwide101. Virtual Assistants are also available in areas of Executive Administration, Project Management, and Customer Service to name a few.
Clients always have questions about how to create a great profile on LinkedIn. Here are some great tips from MarketingProfs on making your profile stand out from the crowd.
