We all know that it’s important to stay in contact with our current clients, and potential clients & leads. But when we’re busy with work, and life sometimes it just doesn’t happen unless we make a plan to get it done.  And getting it done can be a little overwhelming too, right?  Well, here’s a tool that you can use to quickly brainstorm a list of topics your ideal customer will want to know about, and prepare you for an entire year of content.  (modify this and use it for blog posting, or for your newsletter)

Time: You’ll want to set aside 45 minutes – 1 hour (but it saves so much more time throughout the year)

You'll receive a summary of the tools I share on "Oh! Look What I've Just Found!" with a commentary. Usually I'll have tested them by this stage, so you'll also get a short summary of the ones I tested this week that I probably won't bother using.

Success! You'll receive your first note this weekend.
