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.


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

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! 🙂

TWO GOOGLE BASICS FOR YOUR BUSINESS ☑️ . Let me give you an understatement -- Google is important for your business. 📣 . I know most of you already know this fact. But I wanted to repeat it once again. Now, my question: Are you using Google efficiently for your business? ⬇️ . I don't see that happening. All I see is that you are doing your daily Google search and getting on with life and business. ⛔️ . GOOGLE BASIC BENEFITS 🔃 . You need to get your Google basics right urgently, if you intend to compete and win against others in business. . 1⃣ GOOGLE MY BUSINESS (GMB): Go to your GMB listing and check whether you have updated all things properly there. If you don't have a GMB listing for your business,.... then a simple OMG is fine here. ◀️ . Update your phone number, add your website, add relevant pics of your business and get as many reviews as you can there on GMB from your business clients or customers. . 2⃣ GOOGLE MAPS: Add your business on Google Maps. When people search for directions to anywhere in your area, let your business name pop out on the map. ◀️ . Take care of these basics and Google will take care of your business. 🔆 . . (And yes, that's me with my brother after a round of shopping outside a store in Tokyo last year. 🙂) . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #googlemybusiness #googlesearch #google
WHAT'S THE ONLY GOAL THAT'S IN YOUR CONTROL ⚽️ . Do you consider goals as important? If you do, then allow me to share two insights I had related to goals. 🤾 . TWO GOAL TYPES 🛅 . On 1st January of 2019 as I sat down to journal a few thoughts, I started thinking about the importance of goals. In the process, I understood something new about goals. . 1⃣ RESULT GOALS: . All of us read and hear about target-oriented goals. Marketing is all about target-oriented goals. We decide the goal that we want to achieve and then move ahead from there. . I understood that this is what is ‘Result Goals’. The result that we want is put in the form of goals meant to be achieved. . 2⃣ ACTION GOALS: . On thinking about goals, I came to understand that if goals have to be achieved then action steps have to be taken. These action steps can be ‘Action Goals’. . WHAT'S IN MY CONTROL 🔏 . Between Result Goals and Action Goals, I tried to understand what is in my control. The answer was obvious: Action Goals. 📍 . What became clear to me was that Result is not in my hand. I can intend a good result. But Action is definitely in my control. I can take specific action. This action hopefully gets me my intended result. 📋 . So, while I am aware of my Result Goals, I choose to work on my Action Goals. 🔑 . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #content #contentmarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #selfdevelopment #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #dailyaction #personalitydevelopment #actionsspeaklouder #control #intention #goals #goalsetting #results #result
TWO REASONS TO TAKE DAILY ACTION 🕺 . Action gets results. No action equals no result. 🎯 . All of us know this fact. And yet all of us don't really implement it. We don't put it into practice. If we did put it into practice, we would be blown away by the results. 🎳 . (By the way, it is only with daily monitoring and tweaking that results in good digital marketing.) 📣 . THAT DAILY ACTION 🎬 . Here are two reasons to take that daily action. . 1⃣ BETTER PROGRESS: You take action to achieve a goal. Whether big or small, there is always some kind of said or unsaid goal that calls out to you. . When you take that daily action, you ensure better progress towards your goal. You skip a day of action, your progress stumbles a bit. So, act daily. ✔️ . 2⃣ BETTER IDEAS: I think you already know about this. When you start taking action, your brain also starts firing up inside you. It starts presenting you with newer thoughts as you take your action steps. . When you take daily action, you are then assured of much better ideas coming to you on a daily basis. Your mind starts buzzing with good ideas. So get your daily dose of great ideas with daily action towards that goal. ✔️ . . . . . . #digitalraza #instablog #instablogger #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #selfdevelopment #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #dailyaction
HAPPY 🆕 YEAR DEAR INSTAGRAM FAMILY 📣 . Let me wish you my dear Instagram family of digital marketers, business owners and so many well wishers in general a very happy new year. May you have a satisfying and positive 2019 that fills you with hope and happiness throughout the year. 🔑 . Today is Day 1 of the New Year. Allow me to share with you what I did first thing in the morning today. 🗓️ . 1⃣ GOALS: Yes, I opened my laptop and the 1st thing I did was write my goals for January 2019. Not for the whole year, but only for January. I wrote my RESULT GOALS and ACTION GOALS for the month. . I intend to measure how fast I am progressing on my decided actions. I believe actions will bring desired results. 📋 . 2⃣ FOCUS WORDS: I have written down some Focus Words that have meaning for me. Two of them are: SPEED and ULTRA DISCIPLINE. I keep them in mind for efficient action. . This is what I accomplished today on the 1st day of 2019. 📐 . Hope you too set your own goals and work towards achieving them this New Year. 🎉🎇 . Hope you have a solid business year as digital marketers and business owners. 🦄 . Cheers everyone 🙂 🥂 . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #socialmarketing #happynewyear #happynewyear2019
IS YOUR BUSINESS IGNORING SOCIAL MESSAGES 🤔 . I am curious about something. You are running a business and your business also has online social media presence. 👀 . But I find that most of you business owners (big or small) have ignored all those messages left on your social accounts by people. Those messages are just lying there waiting to be answered. Is this some business strategy? I am curious. 👂 . CALL OF SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT 📣 . Fact is: 89% of social media messages to brands go ignored. Why is this so? 🔦 . 1⃣ TOO BUSY? If you are too busy managing your business, then you better hire some digital marketing professional or digital agency. They will manage your social accounts and reply to messages on your behalf. Spend some money, or face negative impression. . 2⃣ LIMITED RESOURCES? If you have limited resources, then stick to one social media account for your business. Now take out 15 mins daily from your hectic schedule and reply to messages personally or get someone to do it. . 3⃣ TIME WASTE? If you think replying to social messages on your accounts is such a waste of time, then think again. You don't reply to critical or positive messages about your business, then you appear inconsiderate and aloof. Bad impression. . THE REPLY ADVANTAGE ✏️ . ▶️BUILD TRUST: Once you reply to messages, people nod their heads and begin to trust you. Good for business. . ▶️APPEAR HUMAN: Once you reply, then you appear human to people who check out your business account on social media. They know you are not some machine bot posting stuff. . Now go ahead and reply to all those messages. ✒️ . . . 🔥 If you like this post and want such digital marketing posts for your own blog, send me a mail.

WHY SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING IS GOOD FOR YOUR BUSINESS ✔️ . If you are posting on your social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram here (or any other social platform), then you are doing social marketing. 💻 . When you post regularly (preferably daily) on your social accounts about your business (service or product), then you find that you begin to develop a following. This is the point where social media marketing begins to positively impact your business. 📈 . SOCIAL MARKETING BENEFITS 📌 . 1⃣ BUSINESS EXPOSURE: Almost 90% of marketers say their social marketing efforts have increased exposure for their business. Now you understand why you see so many brands and new businesses posting regularly on their social accounts. People see their posts and their business makes an entry into their mind space. This is the beginning of a good relationship. ⬅️ . 2⃣ MORE TRAFFIC: About 75% of marketers say they’ve increased traffic with the help of their social marketing initiatives. Whenever you come across brand posts, most of the time you will find that those posts have a link to their business website. This obviously take you to their website, and their traffic increases. Business benefits. ⬅️ . 3⃣ CREDIBILITY BOOST: Naturally, when you are posting about your business regularly on your social accounts, you build credibility.
