If you are a Christian and fan of the Law of Attraction (which states that our thoughts control our reality) like myself then I’m sure you are all too familiar with Matthew 7:7 which states:
“Ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.”
Wow. Every time that I read this verse I remember just how good our God is. Jesus literally told us in the Sermon on the Mount that if there is something that we desire, all we have to do is simply ask him for it!
Isn’t that amazing? In Matthew 7:7 the Bible confirms that the Law of Attraction is a Godly mindset.
Our mind controls our life.
If there is purpose that you know God has placed into your life, all you have to do is ask him to show you how to to fulfill it then trust him to follow those steps.
Now obviously this is a lot easier said than done, but being a very intuitive person myself, I truly believe that most of us can just “tell” what step we should take in each of our lives. We just have to follow our gut and actually do it.
With all of us stuck in self-quarantine, why not take this time to self-reflect and spend some alone time asking God what it is he wants to use your life for?
How is it already March of 2020!?
It’s mind-blowing to me to think back on all of the experiences that I’ve had in the last 10 years, both personally and professionally! 😲
As I continue to grow in my professional career, I have come to realize that one of my favorite parts about working in this industry is developing strategies that are catered to each client to help them get the most out of their online presence.
When it comes to marketing your business, a lot has changed in the last decade – and I mean A LOT! What worked 10, 5 or even last year is not guaranteed to work now when it comes to growing your business.
Here are some tips that I recommend anyone looking to market their brand or business online keep in mind:
Content, Content, Contenttttttt 🙌
Since the beginning of marketing times (if that’s a thing 🤣) coming up with a strategic plan for content has always been necessary, the only thing that’s really changed is how people interact and how people consume (which I discuss a little further below). But content must be a first and foremost goal, because how can you begin marketing your business without first developing the messaging?
Do your research and then do it again
It’s pretty common knowledge now that brands and businesses struggle with sharing content online that is both personal and sales-y. No one wants to feel like they are being sold to 24/7 which is why users expect personalized content that speaks to them when visiting a business’s website or social media. Take the time to research your prospects to know what resonates with them and then implement that into your content strategy.
Video and Voice
I’m sure you have heard times and times again that both video and voice is where the future is headed and that’s for a good reason! How people consume content is something every business needs to keep in mind when developing a strategy that increases your ROI.
The numbers, just like Shakira’s hips, don’t lie
Do not underestimate the power of reporting! Though it may not sound fun, looking at the data is crucial to measuring the success of your efforts. Not to mention, with larger platforms like Google and Facebook consistently updating their tools the amount of information we have available for free about your target audiences and performance helps marketers make good decisions.
Bottom line: Put yourself in the shoes of your potential clients and customers. How do you find other businesses online? What do you like seeing on their websites and social media? And always keep in mind: people buy from people, not businesses.
Ironically, graduating college made me fall in love with learning again. I like to think of the phrase “learning something new everyday” tactically. The world is now my school and I’m loving every minute of it.
With that being said, I am so thankful that I work for a company who puts continued education and interdependence first. I recently completed the Complete Digital Marketing Course on Udemy and would highly recommend it to anyone who is passionate about staying up-to-date on digital marketing trends.
