Every company should have a digital marketing strategy, especially if you are a small business owner. It’s hard to compete with the bigger companies when you just don’t have as much money to spend on marketing.
The best part about marketing online is that you will be able to track your results. But don’t waste your money. It’s easy to get carried away, when you haven’t created a digital marketing strategy. You will probably land up wasting a lot of money, if you don’t know what you are doing.

Well, this year I decided to learn how to write. And, after 125 articles, I still don’t know if I’m any good at it. Today, is one of those days, that I just don’t know what to write about.
Actually, I have written a few things, in the past few days, but I just couldn’t get anything completed. Somehow, it feels as if I have hit a brick wall, and as I’m writing this, I don’t quite know, where I’m headed with this article.
Somehow, I have let people get to me, emotionally. It’s amazing how many people will criticize you, and tell you that you are wasting your time. This weekend, I had a family member tell me that it’s impossible for me to become a motivational speaker, because I haven’t done anything successful in my life.

Well, it’s almost 2018. There are only a few days left, and it will then be January 2018. Things have been tough in 2017, and petrol just went up today by over 73 cents, and is now close to R14 per litre, which is just crazy at the moment.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the country at the moment, and people are becoming restless. Everyone is battling at the moment. People are just not spending as much as they used too. Most people just don’t have the money to spend on anything, yet alone, on high-end luxury items.

Yesterday, I spent the day chatting to a friend of mine who wants to setup a Hot Dog Stand, in our area. I love a challenge like this, and I enjoy the brainstorming that goes with it.
Being an entrepreneur, he doesn’t have much money to get started. So, at the end of the day, he has to be very careful, as to how he spends his money in the early stages. It’s no use wasting his money on something that wont bring in, a return on his investment.

Well, I have been laughed at. I have had people mock me, insult me, and run me down. Life has not been easy, and I worked hard to get where I am in life, but I have only just begun to go through the tough times. I have had my heart broken on multiple occasions, over and over. I have moments in my life, where I have cried for help, but realized that no one is listening.
But, this is good. Go ahead, mock me, insult me, whatever, I don’t give a fuck. It’s been hard to adopt this attitude, as I have always been such a friendly person. I remember a friend of mine once saying, “Nice Guys Get Nowhere”. And it’s true. It has been the hardest lesson in life to learn.

On Friday, this week, the 24th November 2017, it will be Black Friday. There is a lot of hype happening online. Everywhere you go online, all that you can see is these stupid Black Friday Adverts.
Black Friday, Black Friday, Black Friday. All of a sudden, everyone is trying to offer a Black Friday Special, but to be honest I haven’t come across any amazing specials as yet. Some adverts are mentioning things like “Save R2000”, or Save “R5000”, but the products are still so expensive, that you wouldn’t even notice.

Well, a few weeks ago, I decided to draw my first cartoon character, and I came up with a little robot that I called TANK. During the past few weeks, the little guy has begun to grow on me.
So this weekend, I decided to give it another shot, and I came up with this new lanky, cartoon character. I haven’t named him as yet, so please feel free to make a suggestion below.
When deciding on what to draw, I guess the idea of Laurel & Hardy, came to mind. When I look at the cartoon characters now, I can already imagine their individual personalities.

Have you ever thought about starting a home-based business, and working from home? In today’s world, it’s possible to work from anywhere.

Well, I have been doing web design for over 8 years now. As a web designer, sometimes I think that people just think that I cut and past pictures all day long. It’s so hard to try to explain web design, to some people. Sometimes I just don’t know where to start.
When I first started web design in 2009, things were much easier. Websites were simple, and mostly hand-coded. Most websites were just simple HTML pages. Then you had the websites that combined HTML and CSS. Some of my first websites were built in Microsoft PowerPoint and FrontPage.
