Instagram is On the Rise! Marketing Trends to Watch Out For!

By Jennie Lyon / April 16, 2019

The funny thing about our social media networks is that we still don’t have any idea of their potential. Do you remember back when Facebook first made the scene? It was thought to be a digital Rolodex. Today, it’s a multimedia sharing hub and one of the premier marketing platforms in the world. Social media networks and other digital services often grow in ways that you can’t expect. Just look at Instagram. From its humble beginnings as a mobile-only Facebook knock-off, it’s emerged as the biggest competitor to Facebook (Well, sort of competitor, seeing as Facebook bought them). And we…

Revamp your Website by Giving It a Face Lift with a Virtual Assistant!

By Jennie Lyon / April 12, 2019

Have you ever heard the phrase, “aging gracefully?” While I personally think that aging gracefully is a virtue, I can tell you one place where age really does matter: your website. After just a few years, even the most cutting-edge, beautiful, and well-designed website starts to look a little dated. And there are many websites out there that look like they haven’t been updated since 2005! Whenever I see one of those websites, I know that there is only one solution: a “facelift!” And believe me, when it comes to websites, I’m the cosmetic surgeon of your dreams! Look at…

Opening Up: How Much Should You Share with your Customers?

By Jennie Lyon / April 2, 2019

As a marketer, I love Instagram. It is arguably one of the best platforms for getting your brand out there. Instagram is also the best-known place where you can meet “influencers.” These are folks who have built a massive following on Instagram and other social media platforms and use them to share their lives (and the products in them). It’s big money! Many of the biggest, like the Kardashians, make millions upon millions of dollars a year from being influencers. But the influencer phenomena has got me wondering, how much is too much? At what point does it stop being…

Writer’s Block? A Virtual Assistant Can Help!

By Jennie Lyon / March 19, 2019

If there are two words that send shivers up my spine, they are “writer’s block.” As a professional writer, you can imagine how important it is for me to be able to write all day long for my clients. Getting writer’s block isn’t an option when I have so many people depending on me to deliver polished blogs, newsletters, copy for websites, sales pages, funnels, nurture sequences, etc. into their inboxes. If you write your own copy, then you probably know exactly what I’m talking about. Suffering from writer’s block can be incredibly frustrating, but I know one method of…

DIY Your Social Media with the Help of a Virtual Assistant!

By Jennie Lyon / March 6, 2019

When you’re a small business owner, your whole life is DIY! I remember as a kid, DIY usually meant fun “arts and crafts!” Boy, those days are long gone. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I’ve learned that DIY means precisely that: do it yourself. Since you are often the only employee at your business, everything falls to you. For a lot of small business owners, that’s more than okay! People like us can be kind of “control freaks.” I know that I love having control over all aspects of my business! Not only does it save on the…

Your Webinar Slidedeck can Make or Break Your Webinar!

By Jennie Lyon / January 15, 2019

What draws our eyes to beauty? When we see a lovely painting, or a sunset, or a stunning view, why do we instinctively think, “Wow, that’s beautiful?” Here is the thing: aesthetics matter, even in places that you wouldn’t expect. For example, when you are reading a big block of text (like this blog), you probably don’t think of it as “visual,” but it is. There is the choice of font, the width of the spaces between words, the length of paragraphs. Attractive visual choices make the process of reading much more enjoyable, even when the reader doesn’t quite realize…
