Why marketing is so important

Marketing is essential for any business, however with the sheer quantity (and quality) of the information available, you can easily get overwhelmed! You can get so bogged down in reading and trying to work out what to do, you don’t actually spend your time wisely implementing thorough marketing strategies.

The May Marketing Challenge is going to cut through the noise and every day you will have a challenge to complete, that won’t take longer than ten minutes!

What you can expect to gain

You can expect to

  • gain genuine social media followers
  • increase engagement
  • boost blog/website traffic

I’m not going to give you crazy promises that you’ll gain 1000 followers in day! I can tell you gaining followers that aren’t engaged or interested in your content is pointless. They offer nothing and are unlikely to convert to readers or customers. You need to stop wasting your time on methods that gain you followers that offer no value!! With my methods, you’ll learn the basics for gaining followers actually interested in your niche or business. We’ll do it on a small scale for the challenge, but you can upscale it to grow your followers as you have time! You can use these strategies ongoing.


We’re taking a “little and often” approach across four platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest. I would advise doing a little every day. We’re going to spread our time over the different platforms to give you a lot of ideas in May, however, once the marketing challenge is complete I would suggest picking one platform and focussing on that, even if that’s for a week at a time. You may even just have a preference for just one platform. But I would advise keeping doing little and often!

Join the challenge!

The challenge officially starts on the 1st May, however, you can join at any time, just get stuck in!! You will find the challenge posts on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter account every morning!

Great first day! Looking forward to the rest of May! One question…would my Instagram business profile be affected if I close my Facebook page and just operate a Facebook group instead? A bit unsure if should have both!
Thanks, Danni

    If your Instagram profile is a business profile it would be affected as it needs to be linked to a business page. If it is a personal Instagram account then you would be fine. You can’t link an Instagram business account to a group, only to a page. So it could be done, you just would have to forsake the business profile on Instagram to do it. It’s common to have both as the system is set up that way, so we all have to do it that way, unfortunately!! Glad you enjoyed day 1!! x
