This is Week 43 of a 52-week project/experiment in DIY marketing. Armed with nothing but a copy of the 2009 Grow Your Business Marketing Plan + Calendar
and my bare wits, I'm applying the skills you need to grow a business
in real time, day by day, and reporting on them week by week. See the Project Companion Blog, A Virgo's Guide to Marketing, for in-depth posts, additional links and other marketing-related goodness.
It was one of those chugging-along weeks for me.
I managed to get a lot done, when I looked back at things, but the week didn't feel particularly special. I guess what happens when you make marketing a conscious part of your daily life is that it does feel more natural and less weird. I'll still get a weird twinge when I have to put out a specific marketing message—I definitely enjoy the ongoing/building/organic style of marketing best—but overall, it's starting to feel as normal as brushing my teeth twice daily, and sometimes, as fun as a lunch out or a Netflix treat between jobs!
