A client last week told me they didn’t want to do their July eNews because “It’s summer. It’s hot. People are busy. Sales are slow.”… … … I couldn’t convince them to change their decision but I hope I can convince you not to follow their example. Stopping your advertising in slow times whether it’s a Depression, Recession, or July in Arizona is the wrong decision. Of course, have a budget. Watch your costs. Look for good value. But don’t stop advertising your business.
Don’t be fooled by the date. This article and information is as pertinent today as it was in 2016. You need to be using video somehow, some way in your marketing plan. But you have many options.

“I want to give a testimonial to Pamela Bir. I joined her Friday Free For All yesterday and it was just her and I for 50 minutes. She pulled up my website and gave me a professional critique that I have been needing for a long time. She gave me some easy things I could do to make my site work better for my clients and I and she also discovered that I had a Request Information box that was leading to nowhere! She put her info in and sent it and I never got a notification. I realized then that I’d never got a notification in a year!! So who knows how many people wanted to subscribe to my specials and I never responded to them. I am happy to say that I got that all figured out and now I do get the notifications. Thank you so much Pamela for helping me. You are a smart lady who knows her stuff!! 💛”

Just finished this excellent book this morning. I highly recommend it for anyone who has stressful days, difficult situations in their life or who wants to make a change in the world.
There is so much new information coming out now with improved technology about the brain and how it works. Mr. Rock takes the studies and theories and applies them to real life situations.
First he gives us a scenario. Then he discusses the new knowledge. Lastly, he re-writes the scenario using the knowledge so you can see it in action.
So it is easy to understand. Practical advice and application. And he’s funny at times.
