In marketing, like in business, our actions determine our results.
We can sit and wait for favorable conditions, or go through the clouds or the fog and get to work on what has to be done.
A weak economic situation, for instance could cause problems for businesses however, the doors are there that can be opened. The people who are open to the possibilities of the current situation and time get results quicker than those who do not.
In the field of marketing, inspiration can be an issue. The waiting in the hope of inspiration could be a long wait. lifetime.
Writing content that is of high quality, every week whether it’s for a company newspaper, blog or email series it’s a matter of getting inspiration to show up instead of sitting and waiting.
Poetry is for poets, but not to be used for marketing or sales.
There’s also waiting for an authorization. It’s usually from us. We hold out in the hope of gaining some supernatural approval to pursue an idea for marketing or business venture. So little is accomplished until we finally decide to take action.
Instead of becoming a victim of circumstances Business owners who are successful and marketers are focused on the aspects they can manage and make the best use of all the resources they are able to do with the resources they have at hand.
It transforms you immediately from being reactive to becoming pro-active.
This is a huge advantage both in business and in marketing.
What I’m reading within the World of Work
I’ve been looking through some interesting “work, workspace, and workspace” reports this week. I’m sure you’ll enjoy these as well. These comprise:
The way remote work is quietly changing our lives examines the advantages and disadvantages of remote working and the ways it’s impacting the way we live our lives. Do the notion of working five days a week in a workplace soon become outdated?
The phrase “a quiet revolution” was a thought that came to mind while reading the article. In certain ways, efficient marketing could be described as a quiet revolution, instead of a flashy dance routine that features thousands of trumpets. Blogging for example, is a quiet relationship-building strategy, different to more in-your-face tactics like Facebook advertising or YouTube videos.
There is no absolute truth to any of them however, every one has their placein the world, and that is dependent on your company the products and services you offer and, perhaps most important your customers.
What are the best ways to feel more productive at work? This is the query asked by TED the well-known media company that presents talks given by experts in their fields. The answers to this question are the ability to tailor your job to one that is suited to your needs and relating to your own purpose. In certain ways, they may seem like a lot of nonsense, However, the speeches they are showcasing are fascinating.
Do offices need to be determined by the number of employees in the office? Is it an emerging trend built with the speed and agility required by modern businesses with this in mind? This is discussed in greater depth in the way an modern method of designing offices is changing the definition of property.

Anxiety – or fear – is a very common condition which many suffer. Four out of ten people working in the workplace claim that “persistent anxiety or stress are commonplace in life”. It’s a horrendous thing that can cause havoc in the lives of those who suffer in the most extreme cases. I’ve witnessed its devastating effects in person.
It’s a little thing but, if you think about it, keep an eye out for those who are in your life, be it family, friends or colleagues at work. Perhaps even someone you aren’t always a fan of. If you observe some changes to their habits and behavior, talk to them and ask them if they are fine.
It’s not difficult, however it could be the key to saving the life of a person.
