A lot of people are surprised that I watched Love Island. I was shown the show by my friend and client Matthew, and after one episode (somewhere in the middle of the series) I decided to “graft” and went onto ITV Hub to do some serious catchup. It took many hours, but I caught up on 23 episodes in one week, and then switched to “maintenance mode” keeping up with one episode a day. If I decide to do something I stick to it.

Make a page for your event
This is the landing page that can describe the event and allows people to sign up. I like Eventbrite, though it takes a commission it’s really easy to use and people can book themselves in. You don’t have to manage a spreadsheet of attendees, it takes care of payment online, and it sends reminders a day before the event to those who have signed up. It also lets you modify the URL of the event so you can use this when sharing the event on social media, in emails, and in your email signature.

What does lucky in marketing mean??
If marketing is about raising awareness, becoming associated with what you want people to think about you, communicating your key messages, being remembered, and attracting the best types of clients and opportunities – then being lucky in marketing means you are getting all that out of your marketing.
Are you though?
If you love what you are doing then you give energy to it. Positive energy. And good things come from that.
Before we start this I feel it’s important to define marketing.
I like to explain it using the 3 Ms fo Marketing – Message, Medium and Market.
- Message – the beliefs you want people to have about you and the business you are in
- Medium- the channels you will be using to get your message across (Social networks, email marketing, direct mail, blogging, content marketing)
- Market – who you want to get your message to – usually your prospects, strategic partners, stakeholders, clients and people who would give you referrals
