Instagram did me a HUGE favor last week. It went down—AGAIN! Which only solidifies my message that email marketing should be a priority for every business!!! 🤗 There is no other marketing out there that’s less expensive & more effective than email marketing. And—especially when you use my free guide—it can be fun & not terribly time consuming! Listen to my most recent podcast interview with @lora_shipman to get some quick & actionable tips how to incorporate email marketing into your biz. #linkinbio Also, so I’m excited that Lora has asked me back for another interview to go even deeper into some email tactics. P.S. Leave a comment with any email marketing questions you have and I will answer them! 😘 #emailmarketingtips#emailmarketingstrategy#emailmarketing #copywriterlife #contentwriting #copywriter#copywriting#writersoﬁg #marketingadvice #freelancewriter #laptoplifestyleliving #sacramentocalifornia #mominsbusiness #socialmediastrategist #socialmediaguru #copywriter #bossbabemovement #sacramentoca #writingtips #girlsinbusiness #bossladiesmindset #podcastlife#podcastlove#podcastlistening #socialrescue#momhustle
I've updated my 2019 reading list with the last book I finished, "Crushing It!" by @garyvee! The whole list is here: https://rebeccaspelman.com/books-ive-read-in-2019-so-far Have a look if you don't know what to read next! #freelancewriter#bookreview#crushingit#2019readinglist
Being a freelance writer means reaching for the stars without forgetting how to touch down every once in a while. It means taking risks without forgetting to look before you leap. . It means finding the balance between idealism and realism. . Of going out there and seeing what you can do without allowing your own realistic views of your abilities hold you back. . It's one of the reasons I hate SMART goals and have always advised against them. SMART goals hold you hostage in your own comfort zone. QUALITY goals challenge you to grow outside of your comfort zone without losing sight of "reality." . Going after a goal you KNOW you can reach? Where's the fun in that? . Shoot for the goal that's not a sure thing. The view is much better.
🚨 UPDATED SITE IS LIVE 🚨 . Guys, it was time for an update! After being a full-time freelancer for a few months, I realized my website was kinda keeping me in a cage. Although I LOVE memoirs and absolutely want to continue editing them, I don’t want to be known as JUST a memoir editor. . This new website simply introduces me as a freelance writer and editor. Think of it as an online resume! Most of the overall design is still the same, but here are a few significant changes I made: ✨ Newly written “About Me” page! ✨ A portfolio page that lists most of the awesome projects I’ve worked on (with links to clients’ work if I have them) ✨ A NEW SERVICE: Copywriting!!! . Go ahead and check it out! I’ve worked pretty hard over the past few weeks trying to recreate a site that captures my true essence. I hope you like it. . THE LINK IS IN MY BIO!
You’re more than a brilliant business mogul. You’ve overcome adversity and undergone transformation. You’re a story filled with bold moves, limitless dreams, and courage under pressure, but you’ve had your share of fear and self-doubt too. And like all stories, there are so many chapters, so many pages to who you are: the strategist, the trendsetter, the risk taker, the spiritualist, the explorer, the confidant, the best friend, the rule breaker-and it’s important to you that your website and social media marketing reflects every facet of who you are. As a visual marketing expert for commercial, editorial, and corporate executives I work with entrepreneurs and fellow creatives to hone in on their unique story and create powerful words and images around it so they can sell authentically, up-level their confidence, and inspire trust by helping their customers see the real and the relatable story of the person behind the brand. If your current visibility status is basically non-existent and you know showing up online as the powerful, confident boss you are is key to growing your business, attracting your dream clients, and bringing your vision-board fantasies to life, let’s chat about how a branding photoshoot and personality-packed copywriting can transform the daunting task of marketing who you are with ease!
Entrepreneurship doesn’t always look like clients knocking down your door, overnight success, bags of money, or only working a couple of hours a week...from the beach...sipping on a mojito. . You actually have to put in work, often while struggling and uncomfortable. It’s hard to see the qualities that once drew you in - and easy to find signs to quit. But, it doesn’t mean the passion and joy aren’t still there - hidden behind that terrible week, stressful project, or client drought. . This week, 🌗Accept the moments intended for growth and those meant for redirection. 🌖Trust change. 🌕Embrace a different perspective and be open to inspiration and wonder. . Happy Monday!
When I first started freelancing, I struggled with figuring out what services and packages I could offer to clients that actually sold well. And, I made the mistake I see a lot of freelancers make, which is to just guess. When I finally figured out a data-driven process, getting clients became a lot easier because I was offering services they actually wanted. That they could understand and knew exactly what they were getting. In any case, that's what this is. A process for figuring out how to productize and package your services based on real-world data and making selling your services easier. Hope it helps.
Выше! Быстрее! Сильнее!💪 ⠀ Ох, уж эти лозунги, призывающие достигать результатов, превозмогая боль и неудобства. Посещая тренажерный зал и групповые занятия, я заметила тенденцию людей заниматься до полудохлого состояния. 🙄Если тело твое не трясется от бессилия, значит плохо позанимался. И я так тоже делала, а потом приходили срывы и отвращение к тренажёрном залу. ⠀ Сегодня я решила, что с меня хватит. Спорт для меня стал исключительно наслаждением, иначе зачем? 💖 Смысл мучить себя... Хочешь похудеть — урежь калории, а если прийти в тонус и подтянуться, можно выбрать более лёгкие нагрузки, чтобы телу было приятно😌 ⠀ Сегодняшняя моя любовь — йога в гамаках. Единение души и тела, восторг и трепет, но об этом в следующих постах😉 #блог#бодипозитив#body#bodypozitive#blogger#freedom#freelancewriter#freelance#freelancelife#like4likes#liketime#tyumen#фрилансер#фриланс#копирайтинг#копирайтер #продвижениеинстаграм #smm
It's so important that the way we view fathers, in our society, changes. If we are ever to have true equality between men and women in the workplace, the value and status we place upon those providing childcare needs to be transformed. Here’s a piece I wrote for @eastern_daily_press this #fathersday. "As Father's Day swings into view once more, it's essential we recognise that our families have changed. The roles taken by parents are no longer defined by the accident of gender. When it comes to childcare, mums and dads occupy almost identical spaces and its time our culture's narratives caught up. I'm a stay at home father. I'm part of an ever-growing group of men taking a 'hands on' role in raising our children. We are a very necessary part of the workforce - especially in a culture that claims to want gender parity for anyone climbing the career ladder. Essentially, dads looking after children are a necessary by-product of mums taking their rightful place in the workplace." https://chrismcguirewriter.wordpress.com/2019/06/17/eastern-daily-press-fathers-day-column/ #newspaper#newspapercolumn#writer#writing#fathersday#easterndailypress#fatherhood#gender#freelancewriter
🖤 How I Learned To Love Myself Despite Depression 🖤 Depression brings up many negative emotions and can make you do things that you regret. Self-forgiveness was vital for me in recovering. I learned to let go of the past and realize that my actions were a result of my depression. My past actions didn’t say anything about me being a “good” or “bad” person; they merely reflected the nature of mental illness. During my worst bouts of depression, I spoke to no one. I laid in bed nearly all day full of self-pity, lacking the energy to do anything. My therapist was the first person I was able to talk honestly with about my emotions. By learning to be honest about mental illness with others, I was able to find social support from in my life... Read more thethoughtjournal.com
As a Lonely Planet writer I am accountable for the information that is published from my research. I accept the responsibility that entails. That is as it should be. Yet many large organisations refuse accountability for their actions. Instagram, you suck! Not only did Instagram disable my account for no valid reason, but the organisation refuses to answer my queries about their action. Fortunately, I don't rely on Instagram as a marketing tool so I have suffered no financial loss. To me, Instagram is just a bit of frivolous fun on a very weird platform, and that is all it will be since it has proven to be an unreliable, unaccountable and unresponsible company. . . . #instagramsux#responsibility#accountability#accuracy#respect#lonelyplanet#honesty#freelancewriter#writersofinstagram#dicks
