Whatcha’ got going for 2012?

Last year when we surveyed our “circle of friends” we found that social media was becoming more and more important as a substitute for high advertising costs and as a way to reach out to potential clients and customers. We certainly understand this, as it has become a true money saver for us as well and a major networking tool. We therefore implemented the “social media” monthly packages that have been a huge hit with our clients old and new.

We also listened to our associates and found that they truly appreciated and needed the “Healthconsultations we offer, as stress can unfortunately become a daily occurence in the life of a freelancer and entrepreneur. We found that having the knowledge to deal positively with stress was key with many of our clients. I personally found that the verbal support that my health mentors and I offered clients in that area, was even more important than the actual knowledge. I’ve always believed that as my clients grow, we grow, and vice versa. That means, when we learn new things, we share it, and in the field of health, my education has continued just about every day. I’m so excited to share a new venture that we’ll embark on in 2012 regarding health and helping you combat the stressors that we all face.

In addition to that, we always have a few new things to share with you every year and we’ll do so in our 12-26-2011 newsletter; so please stay tuned for that. In the meantime, let us know in the comments below, what you’ve got going on for 2012. We’ll be sure to help you support your positive causes, new products and services! All the best!

  1. 2012 – a whole new year. A year ready for new beginnnings. I have not truly figured out exactly what I am going to do in 2012 but I do know that I want to enhance my freelancer work.

    Thanks

    1. GREAT Barb!

      I’m sure most freelancers would agree with you! Freelancing is truly a blessing, the money you save on transportation costs alone is simply fantastic! We want to continue to support you in your freelancing journey and we’re glad you’re on board.

  2. Well 2011 has been my best business’s best year ever. I have been in business for 12 years so I guess that is saying a lot.

    Over the years we have been evolving with technology. Because of this we use very little paper and pens. We pay bills online and send invoices via email. Envelopes and stamps sit around for awhile now and checks are not used often (mostly for my four kid’s school expenses).

    It seems that the Text Marketing arena that we have been using for over a year is finally taking shape. But the main two areas of our business are web development and social media marketing. These too have evolved,. And of all of the tasks that we do, none is growing as much as the social media marketing!

    And at the end of the day we have fun doing our job. And part of that fun is because of our evolution. I can’t really say too much about next year (plans are hush hush). But we are rolling out a series of free social media training webinars, The series is called Social Media Meatloaf Surprise!

    Aren’t you glad you asked?

    1. Julie I’m truly glad you stopped by and shared and to answer your question: “YES” I’m so glad I asked, as social media was a major part of our growth in 2011! We’ve only been in the social media realm for a bit over a year and I can’t believe the things I’ve been able to accomplish for myself, team and clients with social media and what a savings it is over traditional advertising! Thanks so much for sharing and I’m sure your plans for 2012 are just as juicy as ours. That’s why I thought I’d give everyone a chance to shout themselves out here. 🙂

  3. I’ve only been in business since August so I am still in the early stages, plus a move to France I haven’t had much time to work on my business. 2012 will be filled with promotion and hard work, as well as helping my partner set-up his own business and help him renovate his farmhouse so we can move into it later next year… lots of exciting things!

    1. Jo,

      I’m sure you’re going to do well, we must chat about your move to France and how you find the business climate there. We may also be able to collaborate in the future with our international clients. I’m so glad you stop by our blog! Feel free to do so any time to share your thoughts and ideas on freelancing!

  5. I’ve decided to try to run as many marathons as I can in 2012 to both lose weight and raise money for charities. It will be tiresome work, but no pain no gain!

    1. Claudette, you truly have some worthwhile goals and stay tuned for our announcement regarding helping freelancers & entrepreneurs with their health goals in our 12-26-2011 Newsletter! I’m glad you shared this with us!

  6. 2012 already has a lot of stuff going on for it, like the end of the world. But since I don’t buy into that stuff, I plan to enjoy 2012 with my friends and try to do something new for a change.

  7. I’m excited about saving up enough money to go to Sweden and get a ticket into Dreamhack 2012, the World’s Largest Digital Festival. It will be a fun place to be and I’ll probably meet new people too. Here’s the about page if you want to know more about it.

  8. This year has been a busy year for me. It all just work and work with nothing new. I’m glad that 2012 is just around the corner. I have already planned out my trip to go to the Grand Canyon and explore everything that I can there. Also I hope the road trip there will be just an interesting experience.

    1. Hi John:

      Thanks so much for chiming in! The Grand Canyon is truly beautiful and it’s great to take in wonderful creations to relax. Road trips are also always fun! All the best and thanks again for sharing!
