Are You Efficient

Are You Efficient with Your Marketing?

Are you efficient when it comes to your marketing efforts? Do you try to squeeze in as much work as you can when you have “down” time?

I sort of wondered about this particular question this morning…and even decided to do something about it today when I was driving into the DFW metroplex area. From my home, it normally takes me about an hour and fifteen minutes to get into Fort Worth, TX and I decided that I would be very efficient today. So, what did I do? I took my iPhone5 and dictated the first four chapters of a new eBook into it!

Now, I’m not saying all of this to toot my own horn…although I’m proud of the accomplishment…but I did come to a point where I decided enough was enough and I needed to get busy with something rather than just take in the scenery all the way in.

Are You Efficient with Your Time?

While being efficient with your time on the road is awesome, there are probably a lot of ways that marketers are NOT efficient with their efforts. A lot of times we get stuck in a rut so to speak with our promotions and our overall general techniques.

One of the things I decided to work on this week was a logo for my new site http://millionairemoneymachine.com

I went to fiverr.com to find someone that could make a logo for me, as well as someone to make an eBook cover for me for my eBook 3 Steps to Internet Marketing Success and not only did I find someone to do both, but I was extremely satisfied with the work that they did…here are the results:

For the millionaire money machine logo I went with:

are you being efficientI like this one…it looks really freakin’ cool! Of course, all for $5 bucks!

The eBook cover turned out well too….


I think I also went with someone else to get a 3D version of this for banner ads and other promotional type of images. It looks like this…

Outsource Work for More Efficiency

The point here though is that I’m not a super technical guy. I’m definitely not a graphic designer, but I was able to contact people that are and these folks did a bang up job and helped me look very professional. I didn’t spend any time working on any of this and because of that I was able to work on other things like editing the eBook I was going to use these images with! That is efficient.

Whatever your business, project, idea or product, make sure that what you spend your time doing will end up being time well spent. Time is the only commodity that we can never get back, so spend your time well.
