This is not a New Year’s Resolution

Hand up who’s ready for another new year, new me blog? No, me neither.

All I know is I need to stop eating crap and start doing more exercise, so I can at least try and get out of these joggers and back into the skinny jeans, that I don’t think have fit me since #lockdown1 started.

That my friends is a promise to myself and putting it out there makes me accountable for my ever-expanding waistline. It’s definitely not a New Year’s Resolution as I don’t subscribe to the New Year, new me brigade, I’m way too long in the tooth for that and at the ripe old age of 45, I don’t think I’ll be changing anytime soon.

What I will carry on doing though, is being grateful for everything I do have, being thankful for my beautiful family, and continuing to be thankful for having a business, when COVID-19 has broken so many.

So, I will be ploughing all my energies into growing the business, adding value to my clients, going out and getting new clients, and spreading the word about the training I do (oh that and on-line work outs, until Bozza says gyms can reopen and then I won’t have an excuse not to go anymore.)

If you’re in the same boat as me and your business aim is to grow bigger and shout about what you do in 2021, here’s a few tips that might help you.

· Review: Is your website up to date? When was the last time you updated your LinkedIn company page or bio, what was the last Instagram post you put out?

· Plan: Have you got a wall planner or calendar with content, tweets, blogs or company updates ready to go? If not, why not?

· Generate Content: Brainstorm with your team. What have you got coming up and when? Is it Carol from account’s 25th year with the company (that’s worth a blog), have you got any new starters, are you rebranding, moving premises or taking on new staff? If you answered yes, that could make the press.

· Don’t Be Shy, Spread The Word – if your clients love you, shout about it, ask them for LinkedIn recommendations, testimonials or Google Reviews.

That’s just a few tips to help you on your way but If you’d like more support, I’m running another FREE PR Is More Than Just A Press Release webinar, via Zoom on Jan 14th at 10am. To book please head to our virtual training section of the website www.legspr.agency and I look forward to seeing you there.
