The Women in Your life (International Women’s Day)

You do know that you were brought into this world, on Planet Earth by a woman. You were somewhere else before coming here. Then something changed and you decided to come here on this planet.

woman-and-child

There were so many women living on this planet. You could have chosen any one of them and she would have given birth to you. But you chose this one woman, who you call ‘Mother’ to bring you here. There has to be some deeper beyond-this-planet-and-time connection of some sort between you and your mother. She got you and you got her. I don’t think this is some random coincidence. The first woman stepped in your life.

Open Your Eyes

Once you opened your eyes here, you saw more women. You saw women nurses surrounding you, if you were born in a hospital. You did see more women when you were born, when you saw the world outside your mother’s womb for the first time.

Each of those women looked at you lovingly as you clenched and unclenched your fist and cried out, keeping your eyes tightly shut. Slowly, as time went by, you began opening your eyes more to the world around you. You had a man called ‘Father’ too, who began taking care of you, when he could. But there was this one woman called ‘Mother’ who was there with you most of the time.

Then you noticed that a smaller version of a woman called a ‘girl’ also started giving you company. Your mother said this girl was your sister. You didn’t argue. This sister kept you company, if she had come before you on this planet. If she came after you, then you took care of her, as mother said you should.

Then you remember another woman called ‘Grandmother’ playing an important role in your life. She would even advise your mother on how to take better care of you, if she saw any lapses. You couldn’t understand it then, but your grandmother’s direction to your ‘mom’ seemed to work out right for you. You seemed happy. 🙂

She Held Your Hand

When you started growing up, you saw that besides your sister, you had other young girls called cousins, who would be playing with you and making you happy. They were very young woman who started shaping your world view, as you tried to understand what they said when they were in front of you. You saw there were other women too who loved you personally and were designated as your ‘relatives’.

Your next big step in life was stepping into a school. Here you came across a woman, who seemed to behave like your mother, but didn’t look like your mother. You weren’t sure how to react to this new woman in your life.

You cried a lot those first few days, whenever you were handed to this new woman in school. But you noticed that she was kind to you. Your mother would even ask you this woman’s name after you came from school. You hardly knew her name. Your mother would smile and say that this woman was your teacher. You remembered this fact and it remained embedded in your life for a long time.

For some reason, you did remember this woman teacher for quite some time till you eventually forgot her as you grew older. For a long time in your life, many other woman teachers like her moulded your mind in a certain way, in a certain direction. Your mother and father said these women teachers and even men were the ones who would guide you to do your best in school. You accepted it and kept learning from them.

You Saw Her

It must have started in school or when you reached college, but you started observing something else now. There was this one young woman in your class, who was taking more of your attention than other young women. You began to spend more time with her as you liked the moments spent with her. This woman slowly became either your best friend or your lover.

This young woman began to take a lot of your mind space. You wanted to be with her most of the time. You wanted to share your life’s ups and downs with her. You wanted to be there for her. You could not let go of her.

When life pushed you further, out of your college and into a working society, you began to earn a living. Once that was accomplished, you or your parents decided that you were ready to have a special woman in your life. She would be there for you 24/7 and take care of you. In return, you would provide for her and take care of her to the best of your ability. That special woman came in your life via legal sanction called ‘marriage’ and she was designated as your ‘wife’. She started playing an important role in how your life would shape up from this point.

Work Companions

women in uniform-tile

While in work or business, you saw many more women around you. Most of these women you found smart, ambitious, honest and ready to put in as much effort in the work or business, as you were putting in it. Sometimes you were surprised by this fact, while at other times you simply shrugged your shoulders and accepted this fact.

You also observed that women were to be found in so many different fields. Women were being Politicians, Chief Executive Officers, Presidents, Police officers, Administrative officers, Security officers, Army officers, Navy officers, Air Force officers, Pilots, auto-rickshaw drivers, bus conductors, farmers, teachers, accountants, marketing experts, business owners, writers and more.

You wondered how women were playing so many different roles all around you and impacting your life in their unique manner. Your mother was a home-maker. She remained at home and managed everything at home. But there were so many intelligent women like your mother, working outside home too and at the same time, managing home too.

The Day Came

At times, you wished you could celebrate this multi-tasking, multi-talented member of the human species who gave birth to you and so many of you.

One fine day, one of you decided that enough was enough. You discussed and came upon a solution. There would be one fixed day that would be used to celebrate all women on this planet. That day would be March 8 and it would be called ‘International Women’s Day’.

So, today, you and I, together we convey our best wishes to all women in our life who have made our life as lovely and beautiful as they could.

Thank you dear, wonderful women in our life for being there for us and making life better for us.

Happy International Women’s Day! 🙂

GET FEEDBACK FROM YOUR CLIENTS PLEASE 📋 . Are you a professional digital marketer running a digital marketing agency, or working in a digital marketing agency? 💻 . If you are, then I would request you to actively start collecting honest feedback from your current customers/clients. Here’s why: 🔬 . ✴️THEY MAY MOVE: Yes, this is entirely possible. If you assume that your clients are 100% happy with your digital marketing service, then you may be surprised. Get honest feedback from them and take action on it. 🕺 . ✴️ KNOW YOUR WEAKNESS: You need to know what you are not doing right for your clients. Clients are the only ones who can tell you about it. You can’t guess. Take that feedback and become self-aware, then improve. 👥 . ✴️ KNOW YOUR STRENGTHS: You should know your digital marketing strengths. Clients also should testify to it with their honest feedback. Again, don’t assume or guess anything. The word of your client carries more weight than your confidence. 🗣️ . ✴️ GET REFERENCES: Since you are running a digital marketing business or working in one, you already know this golden marketing rule: Get References. Cajole your happy clients in a feedback to give you new business references. 💕 . ✴️ SERVE CLIENTS WELL: You know there is something called CAC - Customer Acquisition Cost. You have to spend more dollars acquiring a new customer/client, than keeping a current customer/client happy. Get that feedback to know that you are serving them well. 🎤 . You may be super-confident of your digital marketing services. But never be super-confident of your clients. 🏋️ . They may decide to leave you and you may not even know about it...till later. 🎳 . That honest client feedback keeps you and your client on the same page. ⛳️ . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #business #client #clientappreciation #customer #customerservice #customerappreciation #feedback #clientfeedback #happyclient #happyclients
HOW GOOGLE ANALYTICS HELPS YOUR BUSINESS 🔎 . You use Google daily. Google Analytics (GA) is a valuable tool from Google to know important details about your website visitors. 📌 . Question is: Are you effectively using Google Analytics (GA) for your business❓ . Your 1st simple step is to connect GA to your business website. 🔌 . Here, if you say that you don’t have even a business website yet….well, I pray that your business succeeds offline. Online you will remain a failure. You deserve that. 👎 . GOOGLE ANALYTICS OPENS YOUR EYES 👁️ . Google Analytics is an eye-opener when it comes to understanding who your prospective customer/consumer is. That guy who decides to click on your website URL and come to your website to check it out, is your prospective consumer. 🖱️ . Here are some things that GA tells you when you connect it to your website: 👈 . ✔️ AUDIENCE OVERVIEW: What is the user flow on your website - Number of Users, New Users, Returning Users, Sessions, Number of Sessions per User, Pageviews, Pages / Session, Avg. Session Duration, Bounce Rate 📠 . ✔️ DEMOGRAPHICS: GA tells which language, country and city your website visitors are from. 📣 . ✔️ SYSTEM + MOBILE: GA tells what browser, operating system and service providers your website visitors are using. 📱 . ✔️ INTERESTS: GA tells Gender, Interest Category and even Age Group of your website visitors. 👫 . There so many different types of Google Analytics Reports you can generate. You can then use those reports to optimise the experience of your website visitors with relevant content and establish trust. 📋 . What you need to do now is login to your website-linked GA and check out all those goodies that are there in the form of valuable data. 🗃️ . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #website #websites #websitedevelopment #google #googleanalytics #googlesearch #business #analytics #analysis #agegroup #dataanalytics #datascience
THREE MAJOR OBJECTIVES OF YOUR BUSINESS WEBSITE 🖥️ . If you have a business website, then you are already way ahead of your competitors. They may still be thinking about merits of having a website, while you own a working website. 👏 . Now, let me refresh how your website is a valuable business tool. . 1⃣ INFORM YOUR AUDIENCE 🔽 . The number one objective of your website is to keep your target customer informed. When you have relevant website content, then each visitor gets good information about your brand and company and how it remains useful to him. 🍎 . This helps the customer to remember you when they are ready to buy. 🙋 . 2⃣ ENGAGE WITH YOUR AUDIENCE 🔽 . The 2nd objective of your website is to get your customer to engage with you and your business. If you can offer a relevant newsletter, a downloadable PowerPoint, case study, a video, a report, or an infographic, she may agree to give you her email to get that content. 📧 . Have touch points where your website visitor can happily engage with your business. 💱 . 3⃣ DRIVE REVENUE 🔽 . The 3rd major objective of your business website is to drive revenue for your business. And revenue comes when that random website visitor decides to come regularly to your website. She begins to trust your business website. 🍍 . When that website visitor decides to give you her email, she decides to give you a chance. She would like to know whether you are really worth what you say on your website. Only when convinced does she decide to give you her hard-earned money for your product or service. 💰 . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaagency #createcontent #socialmediatips #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #websitedesign #websitedesigner #website #websitelaunch #websites #websitedevelopment #revenue #audience #business
THREE CATEGORIES OF DIGITAL MARKETERS 👶👷🤴 . Let me introduce you today to three broad categories of digital marketers. . ▶️Professional digital marketer . ▶️Trainee digital marketer . ▶️Could-be digital marketer . I am introducing you to these three digital marketers so that you recognise the broad variety of people in the digital marketing field. 🌻 . 1⃣ PROFESSIONAL DIGITAL MARKETER 🦅 . He has digital marketing experience. She has digital knowledge. Both are expert professional digital marketers. 🍁 . He may be running his own digital marketing agency, or working in one. She may be working as an independent consultant. 📯 . 2⃣ TRAINEE DIGITAL MARKETER 🐦 . He has decided to take up digital marketing as a career. He pays money to study and train for his career. She studies to gain knowledge through online or offline courses. 📚 . They know that after their course they would join a digital marketing agency to gain important work experience.💡 . They could also move into taking up a digital marketing responsibility in the company they are already working in. ✏️ . 3⃣ COULD-BE DIGITAL MARKETER 🐤 . These are college students, office employees or even work at home or retired moms and dads. They have been coming across digital marketing news and articles online and offline. They find this field interesting. It could be a career, a hobby or even a source of some extra income. 💸 . They could be digital marketers if they become more serious about it. 🤔 . How each of these three categories views digital marketing would be different. 😺 . Your persistence in gaining top digital knowledge and implementing it for successful results will make you a valuable professional digital marketer. 👌 . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaagency #createcontent #socialmediatips #brand #career #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #professional #professionals #employee #employees #collegestudent #collegestudents #consulting #consultant
FACEBOOK SEEMS LIKE A GHOST TOWN TO ME 👻 . I know this is a bit extreme. But this is just how I feel when I post anything on my business Facebook page now. 😾 . I have only 81 Likes on my page, but had there been even 8100 likes there, I would still feel the same way. 💀 . Why? I have my reasons. 🐇 . ↔️ NO ENGAGEMENT 🐦 . As everyone knows there is close to nil organic engagement on business Facebook page now. You post on your biz FB and the organic reach is close to 1-2%. Ridiculous and laughable. 😰 . You may have a page with 50,000 Likes, but average number of Likes for each of your post would be around 200-300. And you can forget about any Shares. That’s what the situation is. 📲 . ↔️ PAY TO PLAY 🐦 . As you know, you need to buy Facebook ads to get any Likes or engagement now. When you buy their ad and run it, you will get so many Likes that you will smile and smile. 😄 . You can either Boost your Post or Boost your FB page. They will get a boost alright. But what happens once the ad runs out. Nothing. So, it is pay-to-play on Facebook. Nothing more. 🚷 . ↔️ FORGOTTEN LIKES 🐦 . What do you do once you get so many Likes from your Boost Post and Boost Page campaigns? I mean, how do you handle the Likers? 🚥 . If you are not serious about those Likes you got and you are just happy with the number of Likes, then obviously your Facebook campaign had nothing to do with digital marketing. 🚧 . Value what you get when you pay to use Facebook platform to get leads that convert for your business. 🛩️ . Marketers say Facebook is a a good lead generation platform. But some people like me still consider it as nothing more than a virtual ghost town. ⛄️ . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaagency #createcontent #socialmediatips #brand #brandmarketing #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #facebookmarketing #business #facebooktips #leadgeneration #leads #ghosttown
HAVE YOU EVER CREATED VIRAL CONTENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA? ⏩📣 . ➡️This post has gone viral . ➡️ This video has gone viral . ➡️ This photo has gone viral . You must have come across these statements often on social media and even TV news. You must have thought: Can I also create a viral post/video/photo? 🤔 . You might have read a few blog posts and articles talking about viral content with click-bait headlines like -- “Here's the secret.../ “This is the secret sauce.../ “Now you too can create...viral content.” 🕺 . When you read that post you knew that the writer too had no idea how to create viral content. You must have mentally slapped that writer for wasting your time. 😠 . VIRAL FACT ✔️ . Thing is, even the smartest digital marketer alive today cannot claim that they can create an organic (not paid) post, photo or video that can go viral at will on social media. ♉️ . Clients and businesses of course do request their digital marketing agency to create viral content. But any self-respecting agency quickly puts down any such silly demand of their client and ignores it. 🚮 . MY VIRAL FACEBOOK POST ✔️ . Luckily, three years back, I created and published one viral Facebook post in August 2015. It just happened on its own. ✴️ . Iranian film director Majid Majidi had released his film 'Muhammad - The Messenger of God’ in Iran on August 26, 2015. I saw the news on a website on Aug 27 morning. I thought this would be an interesting post. 🎬 . I collected 6-7 film pics together in one post, wrote a few lines about the film and added a link to film trailer. My FB post was ready the same morning. I published it on my business FB page and then shared it on my personal FB profile page. 🖱️ . I was shaking my head when I saw the number of shares it had received by that evening. In one week that FB organic post received 700+ shares and a Post Reach of 60,000+. 😱 . I felt so important for one week. 😋 . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #viral #viralvideos #viralpost #viralposts #viralcontent #viralphoto #film #muhammad
