Brand Image

You need to create a clear message for your potential customers on what your company and personal brand are about. You need to find your unique selling proposition and communicate it through various brand messages; social media, your website, and business literature. This challenging task will bring in a lot of results, as you can reach people who can emotionally connect with the uniqueness of your business.

Mission and Vision

No matter how big or small your business is, you will have to create a mission and vision statement. If you can communicate your values and give your prospective buyers a good enough reason to buy from you, your job will get much easier. List the things you care about and are passionate about, and your long term goals. Put it in a few sentences, and display it on your site, social media pages, as well as your business communication and internal branding materials for employees.

Market Penetration

You will also have to make a decision about how you will enter the market. For this, you will have to create an analysis. Check out the competition, the threats, the availability of substitute products and services, as well as the price competition before you develop a market entry strategy.

When you start off, you often find yourself facing small business marketing challenges. To overcome these, you will need to identify the things that are holding you back. If you are just doing some marketing here and then, and have no strategy, you might be feeling like you are shooting in the dark. Find a way to stand out from the competition, do your research, and get help with developing a marketing funnel that will automatically turn your visitors to leads and leads to customers.

Outsourcing vs. Solopreneur

If you would like to improve your business, you will need to decide whether or not you will be able to cope with the workload. If you find yourself doing your accounts and creating content at 10 p.m., chances are that you will need help. Accept your limitations and you can find new ways to scale your business.

People often find it hard to make important business decisions that will have a huge impact on the future of their business. If you are struggling with strategy and identifying your strengths and weknesses, take a step back and focus on what’s holding you back from success.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
