Time is Precious lighted sign

Do you sometimes feel like you’re spinning out of control, lurching all over the stage like a puppet with a broken string?

Marketing, getting clients, keeping clients, writing, editing, submitting, invoicing, building your business… the list goes on.

Then if you’re a web writer, you can add to the list… creating a website, administering your website, adding content, checking for updates, creating lead magnets, technical issues, managing social media, building an email list. I’m sure you could add many more.

No wonder we sometimes feel overwhelmed!

We’re approaching the time of year when we all take a collective deep breath. It’s a good time to step back and look at how we work, and how we might organize our workflows more efficiently. A good time to start thinking how we can make our work lives simpler next year.

  • Technology had made it so much easier for copywriters, all they need is the time and dedication. The tools and skills are there for the taking, if one is willing to learn how to use and apply them. It makes everything faster and fun. I would not want to dabble into everything at once because I may get distracted or frustrated. It is one skill at a time, and with time I will have enough under my belt to win in this game of copywriting.

    • Hi Paul,
      I agree, technology is a huge help. The only issue is, it’s so easy to be overwhelmed by all the information out there. Still, better too much choice than not enough!
      Regards, Andrew
