Duck Pond Monthly Content Roundup – July 2021

Here’s a roundup of all the content Duck Pond members enjoyed in July 2021, along with a preview of what’s to come in August.  If this post gives you a touch of FOMO, head to the Duck Pond home page to find out more and become a member today. 

Five-Minute Wins

Here are our five-minute wins for July:
 
Five Minute Automation. Save yourself time with this quick but effective task.
 
Five Minute Scheduling. Prepare for an upcoming busy period or just get ahead of the game.
 
Five Minute…wins! How often do you really celebrate how much you’ve achieved as a business owner? My guess is probably not enough, so this week’s win is a win-sharing win!
 
We also ran a collaboration thread for members to post what they need and what they can give in return, to help boost each other’s businesses.
 

Resources & Replays

We were joined by “The Systems Alchemist” Jodie Hayward, for a session entitled “Automation Alchemy”. I had a few huge lightbulb moments in this session, so it’s well worth watching the replay.  Jodie also shared her software and automation tracking sheet with members, which is very handy indeed!

The Monthly Quack. As we’re (over) halfway through 2021, we took some time to reflect and celebrate how far we’ve come since January.
 

What’s happening in the Pond in August?

The Monthly Quack. In next month’s Quack, we’re meeting August’s expert in residence, all-round tech genius (also all-round excellent brother), Chris, who will be on hand to answer all your tech questions for the month.
 
We are also bringing back the content ideas discussion we piloted back in April, so if you want the help of the group to come up with some social, blog, podcast, or other content ideas, this is the Quack for you.
 
Guest expert session. It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas. After a resounding ‘yes’ vote, I’m delighted to welcome Pippa Goulden of The PR Set, who will be talking to us about Christmas PR. Pippa will be joining us on Monday 16th August at 1000 BST and will be covering topics for both product and service-based businesses, so tune in for some festive PR tips and intel.
 

More on our guest expert for August. 

I’m very excited to welcome my go-to tech guy (who also happens to be my not-so-little little brother, Chris), to the Pond for August. Rather than running a guest expert session, Chris will be resident in our Facebook community for the whole of August, answering questions on all of the following and more:

  • Business tech, networking, software, email, backups, security.
  • Digital marketing, SEO in particular, but also Facebook/Instagram Advertising and Google Analytics
  • Business generation, cold calling, cold emailing, prospecting for business.
