Happy New Year everyone!
Here we are already in the middle of January, when your New Year’s Resolutions and goals should be put to the test. For many business owners, it’s a good time of year to take stock and work out new challenges for the year ahead (read our latest blog). Were you as successful as you aimed for last year? What can you do differently this year to make yourself or your business more productive and profitable?
Over the festive period, we had lots of new members join us in response to our Facebook competition. This has been very positive so we have decided to extend this until 8th March to celebrate International Women’s Day. All those that have entered so far will be entered into the prize draw to win the £100 Amazon voucher.
As a new member, the first step should be to fully update your profile. As with any other social network, it’s important to upload a profile photo and provide as much detail about yourself or your business so that you will get found through the site and through Google search. You can also update your status regularly, chat to other members and post your own blogs or offers. You may even connect with a new business partner! Start a new project today!
The main benefit of the site is time management. We all wish we had more time to get more things done and be a few steps ahead. If you skillshare with other members then you can afford to take a breather or holiday now again. For example, collaborating with someone who is skilled in social media management will save you the time required to engage with your community of followers. As an active member, you have the opportunity to attract potential customers through OM, reaching an immediate audience of over 8 million per annum
Skillsharing is great for exchanging services without the need to part with any cash. A business challenge for 2017 could be for you to focus on collaborative projects to make the most out of skillsharing.
All the best
The OM Team
P.S. We are currently making changes to the site to enhance it further and appreciate your patience during this transition. If you do experience any issues or temporary errors, please contact us at [email protected]
