How do we manage?

Well as women and mothers in business people tend to often ask- how do we manage?

And many of us have our own way of managing, coping, whatever you want to call it! We all have different aged kids and some are at school, whilst others are still babies.

So how do we do it? I must admit, not very elegantly!!! I know sometimes my washing sits on the futon waiting to be folded for a day or two (sometimes 3- eek!!) and the kids just come out take some clothes and go.  But I justify this with ” I’m busy making money!!”

Then it’s the TV- yes unfortunately, I use this contraption way too much.  But how I love Playschool….

At the moment, my kids go to kindy for 2 days a week and it is in this time that I get the bulk of my work done. It’s my quiet time to research and plan my business. The other days I just work in my business, answering emails, writing invoices, organising advertising etc.

It can be challenging at times, when you have a business to run, kids to feed, clothes to wash, floors to clean, hubby that needs attention and don’t forget the dog!!

I have one word that I am growing very fond of…

…outsourcing…

So, how do you do it??

Only 30%??

I was reading some statistics from the ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) and one of recent media releases talks about businesses having a web presence.

 Apparently the figure has grown, but is still only 30%! 

And the statistic incorporates those who have a ‘web presence’- either their own website, or listed on someone elses.

That shows that there are still so many businesses out there who are not on the web as yet. Considering the growth of the internet, and the many capalibities for communication, this spells disaster for business growth!!

I wonder when they will start to realise the potential of the internet and what it can do for their business. For those of us who have an online business, now is the time to shine and charge forward, leaping in bounds ahead of these other businesses who somehow refuse to embrace todays technology!

All the best,

Emma.

Merry Christmas!!

Quick blog to say a merry christmas and a great new year to all Diva Promotions clients and readers.

The office will be closed from Friday 21st through to Monday 7th January, however emails will still be checked at times.

It’s been fantastic working you all this year and I look forward to doing so again in the New Year!

Fantastic Feedback- Again!

Yep, another satisfied client. Kelly from Nuvo Maternity recently ran another advert in the birth.com.au newsletter campaign. And again, it paid for itself plus some and some more newsletter sign ups.

This is not the first feedback like this that we’ve had in regards to our birth.com.au campaign. There have been at least two other businesses that have experienced positive results from this campaign.

Congratulations Kelly and I hope the New Year brings lots more business and growth to you!!

Are we there yet?

Oh, I can just hear it now…”Mum, are we there yet?” and so on….. Car trip- here we come!

Christmas is just around the corner, and we can’t wait!! Business has died down a little and it seems that people have been on holidays whilst at work for well over a week now!! I seem to get the lazy email response, and the no-one in the office when I call response….

It appears that we wait all year just so we can slack off at work and have an excuse!! Well, not entirely at Diva Promotions……

We’ve unfortunately had to say no to a couple of clients this year and one more recently who offered us a very outstanding opportunity to really propel Diva Promotions into the New Year. Why did we say no??

A few reasons- the first is due to the new services that we will be offering in the new year. We are just finalising the research now and will have some exciting news after the holiday break.

The second was due to time. What we were asked to do was terribly time consuming and it meant then that we wouldn’t have the time necessary to see through the growth stages of the above services we will be rolling out.

The third was a combintion of the above- we are just not ready, growth wise yet to take on such projects. So, how do we get ready???

By taking on an employeee(or contractor). Wow!! Big things! But we recognise an area that needs to be fulfilled and it’s incredibly frustrating that we are just not quite there yet.

All I can say is bring on 2008!! Diva Promotions is dusting off the wings (or maybe getting ready to attach some!) and about to fly sky high and I can’t wait!!!

 Have a fantastic holiday to all!!!

Where to begin?

Hmm… I’ve had a few pretty busy weeks lately as you can see from my last posts, however I am finding that I am using my diary- lots more!! Working for Mums in Business has been quite busy as Alison has now gone overseas for 5 weeks to visit her family in the UK. So, what’s happening with MIB?? Um… Me! So we’ve been trying to get a whole list of things done for the website and ready to launch in the new year. pretty exciting stuff!

As for Diva Promotions, well I’ve been madly working in the evenings to get my new services up and running for the new year as well. I won’t elaborate too much here except to say they concern: joint ventures, Ebooks and Newsletters.

I can’t wait to have this xmas break and visit the family again. Dad is doing ok- they’ve stopped his chemo as he was getting too sick and is just giving him a more specialised form- directly targeted at asbestos victims. The inlaws have recently bought a hobby farm and have sheep, ducks and are about to get some cattle on it. Liana will be in her element when we visit!!

Bring on the holidays!!
