Today is Blue Monday, officially the most depressing day of the year due to factors such as weather, debt, low motivation, post-Christmas blues and failing to stick to our New Year’s Resolutions.
Let’s face it, we were never going to stick to our healthy juice cleanse or early morning gym routine and dry January lasted approximately 2 hours longer than last year’s attempt (it’s all about progress not perfection) but at least we tried and for almost a whole 2 weeks, we’ve achieved our ‘New us’. However, maybe next year we need resolutions that we can actually stick to?
Which is why we’ve created a list of our new year resolutions that you can keep up:
Take a 30 Minute Break
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our work that we forget to take a break, with only one in five office workers taking an actual lunch break away from their desk. Yet taking a break, even a short one, is a proven way to sustain concentration and energy levels throughout the day.
Action: Get up and leave your desk for at least 30 minutes each day.
Keep up with emerging technology
It wasn’t that long ago when Facebook was the new kid on the block, then suddenly Twitter took over, bringing with it Snapchat and Instagram as the next big thing. Technology changes all of the time and it’s important to keep up with the changes to ensure you can meet your customer’s needs.
Market your business better through social media and content
Been thinking about joining the world of bloggers for a while? Or maybe you simply want to get a bit more vocal on social media? Being active online has heaps of benefits, like boosting your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and bringing personality to your brand.
Action: Write three blog posts a week on your company blog and increase your Twitter activity to daily. Don’t have time to dedicate to your online marketing? Check out how Technicweb could help.
Keep up with Keywords
There’s no point having a fantastic website if no one can find it, make sure you’re bringing in those potential customers by keeping up with your keywords. Keywords are 2 to 5 word phrases that customers might write in a search engine to find your business. Use google and search for your keywords, ensure that your site shows up as high as possible on the search results page.
Action: Keep an eye on how your keywords are performing and create a plan of action to improve your SEO. Need help with SEO?
