Before I go into the usual stuff, I wanted to first thank every single one of The Duck Pond members for the amazing support, reassurance, and general loveliness you were able to provide each other during our recent Friday support thread. What a fantastic group of humans we all get to spend our time with. A few people have contacted me to say how nice it was to be invited to share struggles rather than always feeling like they have to be in “win mode”. So, I’m going to make the last Friday of every month a support thread, to give you a regular outlet for any tough stuff.
Now, onto what else has happened this month…
Here are all of our five-minute wins for August, all of which have a focus on tech & digital marketing:
Five-minute metaphorical junk drawer clear-out. Ditch the metaphorical cables and make some space in your mind.
Five-minute SEO refresh. Create some fresh content without actually creating fresh content.
Five-minute software update. Keep yourself and your business running at optimal levels.
Five-minute Google My Business.
