I don’t know about you, but “business systems” seem to be the next religion on the third rock from the sun. Everywhere I look online, I feel like I see female entrepreneurs shouting with reckless abandon about the wonder of systems, nearly deranged with joy about their recent discoveries.
Systems! they say. YOU NEED SYSTEMS! SO HELP ANYONE WHO DOESN’T HAVE A SYSTEM FOR TWITTER AND BLOGGING AND SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS AND FILING THEIR NAILS!
Okay, that last one is a bit judgmental, since I file my nails every Friday. But still! It’s a little overwhelming.
And to my mind, sometimes a bit backwards. I mean, if you’re starting a copywriting business (or any biz), then it’s great to take a methodical approach, but first you need to make sure the systems you already use are as economical as can be.
Let’s start with one that I use every single day: keyboard shortcuts for word processing and web browsing. I use these two applications (Word and Chrome, specifically) every single day, and honestly, nothing increases my workflow faster than ditching the menu along the top bar and using keys instead.
If you’re a newly fledged copywriter trying to up your daily word count, start here.
See? I’m betting you knew some of those, but not all. Try integrating one or two into your daily workflow until it becomes muscle memory, then starting with another one. Soon enough, you’ll have a finger-ready system that makes creating content so much easier.
Then, when you’re ready for a few more systems to help increase your copywriting and marketing productivity, sign up for the Free Resource Library. You’ll find more than a dozen resources to help you write better, faster and with greater overall effectiveness.
Where do you go wrong?
NOWHERE, THAT’S WHERE.
… and a lovely day to you.
