With its updated email marketing suggestions list, HubSpot checks in with some very useful content for side hustlers.
Chances are some folks haven’t considered a number of these items, including:
— The 5-Second Test
— Keep your email between 500 and 650 pixels wide
— Optimize the email’s preview text
How to differentiate yourself and your products/services?
Tip #1: There’s too much content. Use steps. Use data. Give a fresh perspective.
Tell your own stories. If you can’t offer a fresh perspective, don’t add the content.
Tip #2: Refresh/update your past content.
Tip #3: Add an influencer. ‘Influence’ is here to stay. It may cost you, but it’s worth exploring.
Tip #4: Add upsells and downsells.
Tip #5: Use multiple channels. “Take an omnichannel approach.”
Here’s hoping your bank accounts in 2022
will be saturated as well.
Best of luck!
Some of my favorites:
“Solving problems means listening.” – Richard Branson [My comment: Sometimes, that includes listening to yourself.]
“There’s no use talking about the problem unless you talk about the solution.” —Betty Williams.
“To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?” —Jim Rohn
Go solve a problem today.
And if you stretch yourself, you might just create one or two others, but what the heck. You’re now armed with these quotes to solve those, as well.
I should show up at my Twitter feed more often than I do.
Otherwise, I miss gems like this from @ApprovedSide.
Make ONE important change today:
Stop waiting for things to happen to you, start making things happen BECAUSE of you.

Most of you probably have most bases covered, but maybe there’s room to grow, customize, or streamline. Thus…this list.

How can you NOT get some valuable and unique ideas from Search Engine Journal‘s list to spice up your blog posts and website offerings?
Some of my favorites include:
— Legit, content-rich clickbait
— ‘Day in the LIfe’
— Fact checks
So the challenge is to narrow down from this list the items that work for you (or a virtual assistant) as a creator and for your audience. Good luck!
The more I worked with it, however, the more I heard ‘the voices’: “You need more updated content! You need more updated content!”
Yeah, welcome to my world, where the voices don’t just talk…they sing. ;->
Anyway, some of the other link categories include: Content Marketing, Inspiration for Side Hustlers, Chris Guillebeau/Side Hustle School, Seth Godin, NIck Loper/Side Hustle Nation, and Blogging.
I hope you find content that hits one of your targets.
