Social Media in the News and other stuff

Hi, how’s it going? Hope you’ve had a busy and prosperous week. As I write this I’ve already had a busy week – and it’s only Tuesday. Today alone I wrote 28 social media posts for two clients – that’s 14 each. It’s time consuming and draining, but I enjoy doing it.

Frugal tips

This week, for one client who is not back doing what they do best, I’ve been continuing with frugal tips around the home. My client is a cleaning company (but they are way more than just that), but as I can’t promote their business because they are not allowed to currently work in people’s houses, I’ve been trying to give their clients some great advice. This includes how to be more frugal around the home and how to fix things using items you’d never think of using (such as a clean tennis ball to remove shoe marks from your tiled floor). I’ve actually had some great feedback on this tactic, people seem to like the tips.

For my other clients, who have been able to keep their businesses going, it’s been business as usual.

Right, I’m going to finish up here. I have a tonne of work still to do before dinner time. Til next time.
