    Email unsubscribes are inevitable. Every brand that’s into email marketing receives unsubscribe requests from their customers even big players like Amazon and eBay. So don’t panic if you get them, you’re not alone. People unsubscribe for a number of reasons. They could simply be spring cleaning their mailbox and you’re unfortunately one of those who were let go. Or they just don’t like your content anymore, which could be a big blow to your brand. It could also be the reason why you were “spring cleaned.” According to ExactTarget’s Social Breakup Report, 54% of consumers…

    Hi guys, I'm setting up as an online marketing virtual assistant. I plan on promoting services such as social media marketing, seo, content, and web design. Ideally I would like to act as project manager for client work and assign the tasks to experts in specific areas such as web design, conversion optimization etc. I'm a firm believer that no one person can be an expert in all things digital - hence using the skills of others to get the best results. Do you think this is a selling point and how I should portray the business? I.e that although the client will only ever have to deal with me…

    Hi all Not sure if this is the right board for this but fingers crossed, right? So I'm still new in terms of managing myself as a virtual worker. And I'm slowly moving towards standing on my own and depending less on sites like oDesk and Elance. But the main thing keeping me from that (other than my website not being fully built) is my terrible time management skills. It's odd because when it comes to clients, I'm a great project manager and always keep things in order. And I'm great at meeting deadlines so long as they're work-related. My issue lies in the time leading up to those deadlines.

For many others, it is a thrilling prospect of creativity and opportunity. Fear can sap your energy and hold you back from making progress in your business. How though, can you discover whether or not fear has a grip on you? Start by analyzing your habits.
