I’m a marketer, but I personally do not engage on social media in the typical way that all of my peers, professional and personal, do. It’s a personal preference and it works for me.  I’ll put my hand up and say that I don’t personally engage on social media because it’s just downright exhausting. I spend eight to ten hours

I made what most would call a big mistake: I deleted about half of my blog posts from five years ago. I spent months reading into the repercussions of this and how it would affect my Google search rank, and how it would impact the volume of my blog. None of it mattered in the end. I grew as a

One in thirty or forty requests are prepared to spend the kind of money involved with upgrading their business to a more tech-savvy business. These things cost cold hard cash. There are
