So I have 7 weeks before my little princess is due! 7 weeks to enjoy a full night’s sleep & 7 weeks to get everything with Bizmums functioning well so that I can hand over the reigns to my lovely support team (although I don’t plan to be very far away from things 😉 :
Amanda Wynne Evans – Website Manager & Wrexham Host
Sue Miller – Copy writing & Website content
Joanna Pritchard – Admin & Shrewsbury Host
Maddi Walker – Telford Host
So the plan for the next 7 weeks is to get organised & set up systems to ensure that the lovely Bizmums still have access to all the support they need to keep growing their businesses over the summer.
I’ve started to use a number of tools to help with this the main one being ‘Hootsuite’ which allows me to access all of my social media accounts in one place and also to schedule posts in advance.
Mailchimp is another great ‘free’ online application for emailing newsletters to keep in touch with your customers & prospects. Joanna & myself have been working hard on creating Newsletters to keep you informed & inspired throughout the next few months. Again it’s easy to use templates & scheduling options make it a great tool to get organised in advance.
Having a theme for each month is a great way to create focus & makes it a lot easier to plan content for the website & blogs, this month the theme is Marketing, May’s theme is Time Management & Planning, June’s theme is Pinterest & July & August is all about feeling good & looking after YOU!
I feel that getting organised will be the key to keeping my sanity! Although I am very open to your ideas & suggestions as I know that many of you have walked this path before me so any advice you have to share on second babies & getting prepared would be very much appreciated. You can comment below or drop me an email to email@example.com.
