As a marketing consultant, I “practice what I preach” for my clients. I force myself to do the same things for my company that I suggest they do for theirs.
My desire for “firsthand” experience also goes beyond just doing what I tell clients to do. I also use my own company as a guinea pig to test resources before using them with my clients.
My latest guinea pig experience has been a very helpful test to evaluate WordPress (known as more of a blogging platform) for use in creating my own company’s website. (It was actually a suggestion of my ex husband, so I owe some thanks to Lee.)
I have learned a tremendous amount in a short period of time, and I have made some mistakes that cost me hours. I plan to write about my mistakes and my a-ha moments.
All in all, I love the ability to update my own content (control freak, that I am), and I am very excited about sharing marketing and public relations tips that might help others.
I hope you check back soon and find some helpful pointers!
Your Guinea Pig,
