Pencil Me In *Bonus Tips * Business Trips and the Come Back

Well hello there loves, it’s been a minute…whew! This past month I think I only spent about 9 days actually at home.  The rest of my time I was on the road traveling to trade shows and seeing vendors.  This moment here should be commemorated as I finally have a moment to sip a cup of green tea and get this blogpost out to the world…lol.  I’ve often found when I leave town and come back from business trips or even on vacation it is extremely hard to get back into the swing of things.  The time change has not helped the situation AT ALL.  I’ve now had to jump back into the routine of mom and business woman and I didn’t get a day in between to gather my thoughts. (blah..blah…blah..lol)  I’m sure this has happened to a few of you so I wanted to give you my tips on diving in head first back to the realities of home life.

Tip #1

Plan Ahead: Before my trips I think about what I want to think about on my trip…sounds strange right.  Well a little, lol, but I like to have my head in order there is a lot of idle time while traveling and it’s the perfect time to get your thoughts together about what moves you want to make next.

Tip #2 

Post Trip Brain Dump: So after my trip is over I like to come home and either sit in my office or I go down to my local Starbucks with one of my many whimsical notebooks and I dump everything out of my brain that I’ve been thinking about over the trip.  This allows me to get it all out of my head onto paper so I can see my tasks at hand.

Tip #3

Clear Your Mind: After my brain dump I make a strategic plan looking at everything I wrote down and prioritizing in order.  Some things will need to be done ASAP like follow up from the trip and other things will need to be scheduled out.  Then from here I begin to plan my week ahead off of these goals and my previous business goals and I sprinkle them in with my normal routine of school, kids and work.  Now I’m ready for the world!

Branding Tips 

1. Be innovative and bold!

Being innovative makes you one step ahead of everybody. Coming up with new and original ideas helps your brand stand out. When coming up with new ideas and methods you need to be bold. Being bold and taking risks will set you asides from other brands; making your banding more appealing to others.

2. Define your brand!

What is your brand? Do people know what your brand is and what it stands for? Defining your brand is knowing what you stand for as well as what you offer. Without brand definition people will not know what your brand is. This is the most important step in branding.

 

3. Promote brand awareness!

In order to reach your market you must have promotional initiatives. Anything from social media, business cards, events, etc. Events are a really great way to promote brand awareness. During an event people will get to interact and see first-hand what your brand really is.

4. Build long term relationships!

Building long term relationships is very important because it is networking. Networking keeps your brand in the loop with other people you may need. Building these relationships creates loyalty to your brand.

5. Go against the grain!

Following what others doesn’t make a brand stand out. Originality is key in marketing your brand. People want to see something different not, the same thing everyone else is doing it gets boring. Going against the grain often times means taking some risk.
