iCal for time blocking, events, and meetings.
Evernote for in depth weekly planning, writing blog posts, travel planning, long term projects, and note taking. If you’re interested in my initial set up you can watch my YouTube video here, but I actually need to update the vid. I made a few tweaks. Stay tuned for that! You can also see how I use it for travel planning here.
Todoist for daily tasks and reminders. I have a YouTube video on my set up, you can view it here.
Goodnotes for brain dumping, digital planner, and bible study.
Trello for Blog Scheduling. Trello has been my most recent addition to the work flow. I posted about my current set up this past week, you can read it here.
Apple Mail for email. This one doesn’t need much explanation except for 2 things. One, I archive my inbox every week that way it’s at zero when the new work week starts. Having messages (read or unread) in my inbox has always given me anxiety. Two, if it’s an email that needs to be saved like a flight confirmation I’ll forward it to my Evernote inbox using my Evernote account email. This will send that email to my default notebook. Comes in really handy!
Forbes defines conversion rates as the percentage of prospective customers who take a specific action you want.
Having a brick and mortar store, we have the privilege to be face to face with our customers on a regular basis. We get to learn more about them, what piqued their interest to come visit us, and how they heard about us. Majority of the time they’ll say, “I found you online, my friend posted about you.”
I think a lot of people really underestimate the power of social media. I’d say that half of the people I encounter don’t know how full wrap their head around the idea of social media, how to use it in a a realisttic way, and be authentic. And the other half has never known life without it so they do nothing but post, watch, and share 24/7. To most people, social media it’s a promoting tool. You’re either trying to promote a product or service or you’re showing off all the great highlights of your life. Either way, business or professional, you’re promoting something. But at its core, this isn’t what social media should be about. In my opinion social media should be a tool to communicate with others. I view it like phone calls or texting, just on a different scale. Instead of communicating with 1 or 2 people, you have this opportunity to communicate with the world at the same time!
Maybe it’s just me, but this is amazing!
Social media is a great place to share, ask questions, help people, and talk to each other. I find more and more people looking to the internet to get recommendations from friends and family.
If you own a business this is something to think about. If you talk and give freely instead of posting expecting a return I firmly believe this approach will get you the results you’re hoping for!
