You Got This: How to Get Out of a Slump

You Got This: How to Get Out of a Slump

This was originally published in 2016 but it’s so popular that I’ve updated it with some new tips for you all! 🙌

I’m sure I’m not the only one that has phases of being unproductive with no motivation to work.

When you’re ticking things off your to-do list, it feels great - you’re working to the best of your ability, you’re helping your clients or customers, and you’re generally getting shit done.

On the other hand, when you’re feeling a little down about your business, it can have a huge effect on your productivity. It sucks. If I get into a work slump, you’ll find me on the sofa, snuggling the doggo, and playing Dead By Daylight 🎮

I’ve been there before, and I’m sure I’ll be there again, but I always find my way out of it!

Whether it’s business or personal, these tips and tricks will help you beat your blues, find your motivation and get back onto the right track! You'll also be able to grab my free Goal Getter Goodies bundle to help you stay focused when you're out of your slump! 💕 

3 Ways to Plan for Profit in 2019

3 Ways to Plan for Profit in 2019

Generating consistent income is a common goal for online business owners. It doesn’t just mean a constant stream of money (though that IS nice); it also means confidence in knowing what your monthly paycheque could be and feeling secure in your business.

In the world of entrepreneurship, we are often bombarded with phrases like:

  • “10x your income”

  • “double your revenue”

  • “increase your passive income”

  • “make 6-figure launches”

and, whilst monetary success is amazing, it can be really tough to be surrounded by talk like this when you’re a) just starting out or b) having a slow month with your business.

I’m here to tell you that it’s healthy to have some kind of income goal for your business but you don’t NEED to be making 6 or 7 figures a year or quadrupling your revenue as long as you have a strategic profit plan in place 💰

It can be difficult to know where to start with planning for profit, but I’m here to help you out! It’s about striking the balance between big hairy income goals and not selling yourself short with unrealistically low goals. How far into the year do you plan? And how do you make those plans actionable so that you can work towards your income goal week after week?

I’ve put this guide together to help you create your annual profit plan that is built on what’s currently working for your business to help you achieve those income goals!

This blog post talks you through:

  • 📈 how to analyse your current income

  • 🙌 how to set goals for your business to make sure you stay on track (and why they’re so important)

  • 🖥my favourite resources for drawing up a profit plan

I’m so excited to delve deep into this topic with you - and to give you access to my free Goal Getter Goodies bundle!

5 Rookie Influencer Marketing Mistakes To Avoid

I have encountered influencer marketing from all angles. I have been on the side of the brand (from very large to very small) working with influencers to promote their products.

And I have been approached as an influencer to talk about certain things on my blog.

Though I have had many experiences in influencer marketing, I have noticed that brands and business owners are making the same 5 rookie mistakes over and over again.

We've talked about who influencers are and how they can help your biz - now it's time to talk about what NOT to do!

How To Create An Influencer Marketing Strategy For Your Online Business

How To Create An Influencer Marketing Strategy For Your Online Business

Influencer marketing (or ‘strategic word of mouth’ as I like to call it) has grown and grown and grown over the past few years - the stats don’t lie. However, I still think there’s a huge chunk of small and online business owners that aren’t utilising this strategy - or ANY outreach-focused strategy for that matter.

If you’ve clicked on this post, you’re probably *thinking* about creating an influencer marketing strategy for your business this year. Or maybe you’re wondering what ‘influencer marketing’ is all about, or why you should even bother adding it to your to-do list that’s already as long as your frickin’ arm.

I’m not about to tell you that outreach is an essential step on the path of growing your business. I’m all about influencer marketing, affiliate marketing, and guest posting, but I’m also about honesty and sometimes this isn’t the best fit strategy for everyone.
