Your Free Book: Easy Steps to Organization

Posted by | General | No Comments

coverHere it is. This is by far my best selling book on Amazon Kindle and soon it will be turned into an audio and video series. Now you, and your friends, can have it for free (usually $2.99). Spread the love far and wide. It is my pleasure to gift this to you in exchange for only an email address where I can send it to – just enter your email into the form below.

What’s the catch? – there isn’t one. But, of course, if you have any feedback on ways I can improve it, or things you think I need to add, then this will help me when I deliver my audio and video series. But, you can have the book and do nothing more if it pleases you – just enjoy and act on the contents for a more organized life.

Here is the form and below it you can read the published details of the book.

Why do we often hear of people feeling “stressed”, “disorganized” or “under pressure”? What is it in today’s life that makes us appear to have less time than ever before even though we have machines to do much of our legwork? What makes our time melt away and cause us to feel closed in, agitated and out of control?

The answer often comes when we take a step or two back and look at things from a bird’s eye view. It appears we are so wrapped up in all our minutiae that we forget to look at the bigger picture. We focus on the small parts without considering the wider view.

Today we consume almost 3 times as much information than our peers did 50 years ago. We check more correspondence and visit more websites than ever before and all of this consumes our time and attention. There is even evidence that our IQ reduces the more we become distracted by our activities – even to a greater extent than mild drug use.

“Easy Steps to Organization” will help you to:

– Stay in control at work and at home
– Be less stressed and more in control
– Become more effective and productive
– Do more in less time
– Declutter your work and living space
– Delegate more appropriately

Staying in control of our lives requires us to organize ourselves better and this, in turn, requires us to look at the individual parts of what we do and develop a system to turn them into more effective and efficient processes.

Becoming organized takes much less effort that you might think. Thereafter you can reap the benefits and stay in control of your life. Dr Mark Clayson has witnessed this phenomenon in his daily medical practice and now shares the fundamental principles of successful organization.

Social Media and Business – 19

Posted by | Social Media | No Comments

It is not that the consumers are not buying anything, it is just that they are selecting what to buy and when. We are less likely to make our decisions based on an advert that we haven’t asked for and more likely to make them based upon what our friends and acquaintances have to say and combining that with our own investigations into the products and services concerned.

The consumers are buying based on endorsements from other people. Social media has a large part to play in selecting and acting on these endorsements.

There is evidence also that consumers are performing a lot of investigation into products or services before making purchases. Now the internet is able to give us plenty of information about almost anything you can think of.

Consumers can spend time on an array of websites, finding information of all sorts. Specifications can be found from traditional retailers who are now providing extra information about products or services.

Only recently I bought a refrigerator. Not only did I see it and touch it in the store but I checked it out online. There I found out its size, weight, energy consumption, capacity and features. I was able to see a 3D animation of the product and compare it to other similar refrigerators. I also read reviews from people that had bought the product and used that particular company. The item was rated using a series of stars.

The product looked suitable in the store but my investigations showed me more information about it and told me what the experiences of others were. I bought it based on the latter.

So the volume of activity increases.

This can act in two main ways. First, the product, service or company can be seen to be worthy and efficient. Secondly they can be made out to be worthless and inefficient. The extent of the success or failure of that particular company or service can depend upon what people are saying about them around the world.

A word of warning. Although you may not be a transglobal company, everything said in this book applies to you.

In my home town, we have the normal range of services. There are accountants, solicitors, plumbers, electricians, car dealers, supermarkets and the widest range of product or service providers you can think of. We will discuss later on, but you must immediately realise, that social media is not only global, it is also local. Increasingly people are geotargeting friends and businesses. I could, for instance, just speak to the people that live in my own town and if I did I’d likely be discussing which hairdresser I use, where I would buy shoes from and who is the best provider for my energy needs.

Social Media Helps Recession-Hit Businesses

Posted by | Social Media | One Comment

Can you think of a way to help people in a recession? One way is to offer a discount or special offer. That is pretty obvious – but how is best to get that offer across? Tradiitonal advertizing techniques can costa  lot of money and it appears that firms are shying away from the big buck promotions. But there is a relatively cheap way …

… social media

Coolhaus have done just this. They offer ice cream sandwiches and have utilized social media to promote their wares – check out their site to get a flavor (no pun intended) of this – http://www.eatcoolhaus.com/

Now, we all know (don’t we?) that social media is a viral platform. So, think about the following:

– offer a discount for people that visit your site (you can make it time limited or range limited)

– offer a discount if two or more people come to your business after seeing the site

– play a game – get customers to quote a word or phrase when they visit you to get their discount

People love this sort of interaction and will want to share the experience and tell their friends via social media (as well as other avenues)
