Boost Awareness in 5 Minutes!

Do you have five minutes?


If you have five minutes, you can help boost awareness for your business online!


Here are three quick things you can do in about five minutes. Pick your favorite:


1. Enter information on a forum or blog.

Visit an online forum or blog where your target market hangs out. Then, enter your quick comments about the current subject being discussed.


Provide a valuable statement without pitching your business. Just make sure your name and business name appear in your signature online (also include your website address if appropriate).


2. Change your home page.


Look at the home page of your website and make a change. Add a valuable statement, a link to a good article,  a blog entry, etc.


You can even add some keywords to improve search engine optimization. After all, when was the last time you updated your site?


You need to appear “home” so make a quick change now. And when you have more time, go back later and add new updates.


3. Share a blog entry.


Visit a blog carnival like . Then, review the different carnivals and add your favorite blog entry to the appropriate group.


If you don’t have time for this, send the link to your entry (or a good article) to a new customer, partner or other person as a reminder or networking tool. It only takes a minute to convey a good message.


It Only Takes a Few Minutes

Now, these activities only take me a few minutes to complete, and they may take you a bit longer. But when you feel like you are short on time, and you really need to accomplish something, try to do one small thing.


Think of things that you can do quickly that will make a difference. Then, take a moment to take action.


Not only will you get a small break from whatever you are working on, but you’ll feel more positive. And you’ll be able to return to your other, long-term activities with a better attitude and a new sense of accomplishment!
