I’m sure that note taking is a big part of what you do on a daily basis; most people can’t trust their memory to remember everything. The challenges you may have could include:

  • Not remembering to do things
  • Not remembering to follow up
  • Not being able to find your notes
  • Not having one handy place to keep all your notes

I have always loved taking notes, making lists, and being organised in general. Also, in recent years I’ve really started to enjoy writing more. I still love my Moleskin notebooks but when it comes to being more efficient, finding a way to take notes electronically has become a big deal for me. Not just for business, but for everything in my life.

I started using Evernote at university in 2009 and I use it for almost everything now. It’s one of only a few applications that is open and on every single day.

If you are thinking about using Evernote (we highly recommend that you do) you can start with this article that details:

  1. What Evernote is
  2. The benefits of using Evernote
  3. How we use Evernote here at Learning Everyday
  4. Some fantastic resources that will help you get started with Evernote

What is content marketing?

“Marketing is telling the world you’re a rock star, content marketing is showing them you’re a rock star” – Robert Rose

  • Are you confused by content marketing?
  • Do you think it’s just another marketing tactic?
  • Would you like to find out more about how you and your business can benefit from understanding content marketing?

We get asked this perfectly valid question A LOT – “What is content marketing?”. We are very aware that there are many business people out there that have never heard of content marketing, and if they have, they don’t really understand what it is, or what it means for their business.

What if you could get your audience to spend more time with your marketing? What if you could get your audience to look forward to receiving your marketing? This is what content marketing can do for you and your business, and it will change everything.

I have prepared for you four key definitions of what content marketing is, along with some related articles, videos and podcasts, to help you get to grips with what content marketing is and how you and your business can benefit from embracing a content marketing philosophy.

Buffer App

In the time that I have been involved with social media (about 5 years or so at the time of writing). I have had many challenges finding a productive and convenient method of sharing content on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

Fast forward to 2015 and the applications available to small business owners and agencies have become quite sophisticated. They are starting to really solve the main problems around making social sharing easier and less time consuming.

One of the applications that I really feel makes sharing curated and owned content really easy is Buffer.
