Likes and Friends and Customers

Has anyone seen the new Facebook adverts? Facebook has decided to remove business posts from people’s newsfeeds “in order to improve the customer experience” which it will but it will also force businesses to pay for advertising as they have to with other platforms like google and bing. I imagine there will be panic as the number of likes and views drops like a stone since users will need to click through to visit an advertisers site. However, they will at least be motivated viewers who are more likely to actually buy from you. REMEMBER; it’s not the number of friends or likes that is important, it’s the amount of money they are paying you. In fact it’s actually the amount of profit you are making from them. Friends and likes are for your personal page not your business one. They boost the ego but not necessarily the bank balance. And on that note back to the adverts themselves (Facebook’s own not yours). They depict a bunch of people working all hours to cut hair, make burgers etc, and the advert appears to promise more clients and customers to help them. Why? If you are rushed off your feet already why would you ever want more of the same? Clearly none of these people have looked at their numbers. If they had they would realise that the profit per customer is so small they need oodles of them, and to spend most of their waking lives working. They don’t have businesses, they have jobs, and worse the boss is a slave driver. Even worse still they can’t tell them... read more

Hurrah it’s February

Hello everyone, the madness of January tax return silly season is over and I can relax a bit. I still have lots of things to do that had to be put off and one of them is doing some planning for the new year. Now, whilst January is very hectic at least it is in the middle of Winter so I wasn’t going to be doing much anyway and it does stop me getting sucked into making Resolutions as I really haven’t got the time or the inclination. Plus now the days are getting longer, the first daffodils are out and Spring feels just around the corner (which it is; less than 4 weeks away in fact) and frankly I feel more like doing stuff than just after the Christmas holidays. I do want to start doing a few things though but I shall be making 12 week plans (google the book if you are interested in knowing more) and trying to stick to them. Just making plans doesn’t work! A few guidelines I follow are: Most importantly, before starting I make sure I actually WANT this. It’s too easy to be chasing other people’s ideas and dreams without really realising. Have a goal and divide this into mini goals to keep the enthusiasm up. Near enough is good enough; perfection is unattainable. Work out what is needed to get to the goal and create an easy to follow step by step process. Focus on the process not the goal. I covered this a few weeks ago. Don’t tell anyone, unless you can GUARANTEE they will hold you accountable.... read more

New Year, New You???

Happy New Year Everyone Obviously I haven’t made any new year resolutions as I find they get lost in the January rush to finish tax returns. Anyway, if something is worth doing you should start when you think about it not wait for an arbitrary date. I do have some goals for 2018, but not too many and they are not necessarily defined. Some goals are fixed, all or nothing, (I want to visit Italy this year) so they can be accomplished by simply booking a holiday and remembering to turn up at the airport. The second sort is to to do more of something (painting, hill walking etc) and a third is either improve or get to a certain level of something (money, ability, whatever). Only the last is really quantifiable and even then there are good reasons for not actually putting a target on it. A lot of people get demoralized when things don’t go to plan even though they are improving especially if your results are going up and down. And when you can’t easily quantify a goal. Learning a language for instance. Difficult to measure changes on a small scale and hard to check on ability level. I know I can speak French reasonable well but exactly how well. I can’t just get on a scale every morning like I was checking my weight. I don’t want to put numbers to things in case it all gets a bit anal. I don’t like to have a chart of how close I am to a goal or in fact obsess about it at all. Rather I... read more

Chestnuts roasting….

  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Perry Como memorably sang. But don’t let up on the work. It’s immensely satisfying, I think, to take off the holiday knowing that you have put in a good month’s work and not “goofed off” because it’s the festive season. To be fair, those of you that sell turkeys or toys, trees or tinsel will not need any encouragement to get busy. But the rest of us it is too easy to slow down and lose two weeks of the year to idleness and over indulgence. I’m not saying that we should be noses to the grindstone over Christmas but I like to keep on top of things and even spend some time planning next year whilst everyone else is sleeping off the mince pies and brandy. After all, in late December the light is failing by mid-afternoon and there is almost guaranteed to be a day or so of lousy weather. Why not get some stuff done and hope the next day is sunny and calm and you can get out for a long walk in the fresh air? January is my busiest time of the year so I like to feel rested and refreshed coming into the tax return season, but also without any nagging feeling that there are “things to be done” that I could have got out of the way earlier instead of adding to the headache of dealing with people who could have had their books sorted out months ago but kept putting it off. Newsflash: time doesn’t run more slowly in January even... read more
