Not a Time to relax

Summer … it brings thoughts of hammocks, Bar-B-Q’s, getting together with friends, and outside adventures.  If you are a business owner, it can also take on a feeling of ease; distributors are updating with new products, people are on vacation putting meetings and progress on hold, and yourself, feeling a bit of the lazy days with excuses to ‘do it tomorrow’ and enjoy a bit of downtime.

With the slowing of outside contenders, however, a bit of anxiety can emerge along with the idleness.  Perhaps it is a good time to review your marketing tactics and update your website with a fresh look and current copy.

A newsletter sent to your established customers will give you a sense of connection. Initializing one in the summer will also put you on a more social and personal level. 

If you haven’t ventured into social media for your business yet, this might be a good time to discuss the advantages and find out exactly what all the ‘talk’ is about.  Is your business selling to younger generations, the famous millennials?  It is a must you establish a presence in social media.

Just a few ideas to get you started:


  • Post a blog on your site
  • Create a Facebook page for your business
  • Take some pictures for Instagram
  • Find interests or new ideas on Pinterest
  • Tell about your latest achievement on Twitter
  • Write an article for LinkedIn which excites you

AND create business growth – 25% of all online users connect through their mobile devices only.  Not having this presence will eventually, hand all your business to your competitors.

Because these mobile devices are the way of now and the future, make sure your website functions with accurate speed and information display on the smaller screens.  As everyone moves to more convenient and reliable sources for their information, if yours isn’t loading properly or quickly, they will move on to someone’s site which does! 

Summertime does bring a certain amount of sublime ease to our lives. Give your business a bit of a check-up while you have a few extra minutes on your hands and update the necessities.  Come September when everyone hits the ground running again, you’ll be thankful you are already ahead of the game with your business plan and image.

  1. I simply could not leave your site prior to suggesting that I really loved the standard info an individual provide in your guests? Is going to be again regularly in order to check out new posts

    • I will, thank you! You have no idea how wonderful your comments are … So nice to know someone is enjoying the same things I do. I’m hoping this site will join some of us who need a site to read about similar experiences and share in the beautiful, and sometimes not so beautiful, times in our life. I’m thinking of beginning a brief ‘thought of the day’ emailing. What do you think? Or maybe have a notice sent out when new content gets posted? Your thoughts? Thank you so much for visiting!!!

  2. An added important issue is that if you are an older person, travel insurance pertaining to pensioners is something you need to really look at. The more mature you are, a lot more at risk you happen to be for getting something undesirable happen to you while in most foreign countries. If you are not necessarily covered by some comprehensive insurance policy, you could have a number of serious troubles. Thanks for expressing your guidelines on this web blog.

    • Great point! Yes, I couldn’t agree more. Something I found while I was in Italy – as I was so intrigued with the surrounding s, architechture, museum pieces, people, etc., rarely would I watch where I was walking. It being Europe, I found cobble stone roads and multi-century old churches and museums rarely had smooth walkways. One could turn an ankle easily. Thanks again for your insight!!!

  3. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    • Hi! Actually, I haven’t had much trouble with plagorism. I can see where it could be a horrid problem though, especially in Google and other search engine rankings, labeling you with repetitive and unoriginal content. Let me check a couple resources and see if I can get you any suggestions …

    • My web hosting has a plugin I can subscribe to which reduces spamming, which is directly linked to the plagiarism stuff. Also, if you put a password on the writing (in the code, something along the same lines as a PDF), you can avoid this also. But at some point, people will copy … take it as a compliment; they only copy the good stuff!!!

  4. I have come across that right now, more and more people are being attracted to video cameras and the industry of photography. However, really being a photographer, you need to first commit so much time deciding which model of photographic camera to buy as well as moving store to store just so you can buy the most affordable camera of the trademark you have decided to pick. But it does not end now there. You also have to take into consideration whether you should buy a digital camera extended warranty. Thanks a bunch for the good guidelines I acquired from your web site.

  5. I do not even know the way I ended up here, however I believed this post was great. I do not understand who you’re but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger in the event you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  6. Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

    • Hi Short Hairstyles … I’m not sure what post you are referring to. If you would like to respond at the bottom of the post you are referring to, I’ll get the URL from it and be able to answer your questions … Thanks so much!!!

  7. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading
    very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a
    issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  8. I simply want to mention I’m new to blogging and seriously loved you’re blog site. Most likely I’m want to bookmark your site . You definitely have perfect posts. Regards for revealing your web-site.

  9. Write from the heart … writing is an art and needs to be expressed individually. It’s also a good idea to hae your spellcheck or background program to check grammar and spelling, mistakes detract the reader from the content.
    I hope that helped!!
