08/11/2013: Welcome to Fabtastic Friday

Friday is derived from a translation of the Latin 'Veneris Dies', the day of the planet Venus. Venus was the goddess of love and today is a great day to love your business.

Of course we all know the old joke about Robinson Crusoe being the only man who got all his work done by Friday but it isn't necessarily true. The key lies in defining exactly what 'all your work' is. Disappointment is only when reality is not equal to expectation so if your expectation is not achievable, disappointment is the only possible outcome.

By setting realistic goals and learning to stop once they are achieved can bring much more pleasing results. You never know, you may achieve what you set out to achieve before the end of Friday. How good will that feel?

One of the most important things that Gina Gardiner taught me was to identify the difference between what was important and what was urgent. There is always a temptation to give the squeakiest wheel the most grease at the expense of jobs that can make a big difference in your business.

Getting the allocated tasks completed early may well leave a little space for some 'bonus' activities to help drive your business forward. How about a little promotion? Updates to your website keep it looking fresh, give people an additional reason to stay when they visit and help gain search engine attention. Using Webinthebox® from the Village Websmith makes this simple, with updates taking only a few minutes of your time. Show the world why they should love your business as much as you do and keep the news current.

Do you regularly publish case studies of sales and work done? Do you write a 'blog to highlight snippets of news? Do you promote your work fully through social media and the search engines? This is all easily done if you have time yourself. If you don't have the time, tools or inclination do make regular updates, you will find that the Village Websmith can offer easily affordable programmes of regular 'drip-feed' information to keep you in front of your buying public.
