Guess what? I’m a lucky girl; I’ve just wrapped some intense on-site projects, and I have another 6 weeks before starting another on-site contract for web content. In other words, I’ve got some flexibility to focus on my own business and networking. Here’s what else I’ve been working on:
In the past three years, my business evolved to the point where I rarely used my office for more than a mailing address. When my lease expired in September, I moved into an empty office at SixSpeed – one of my agency clients. It’s a business model I call “plug-and-play independent consultant” – because I tend to work with a lot of agency and in-house marketing teams, but I still need a home base. This allows me to merge freely when and where my clients need me, while still preserving the sanctity of my business headquarters. I just happen to have another agency’s creative team outside my door – and when they need copy, creative, or social media strategy, they just knock on my door.
It was time to update my site, so I made a few changes:
To answer some common questions, I put “What I do” right on the home page.
The blog has moved to a new section called “The Latest“.
I figured it was time to start showcasing some of my published work and appearances.
And I decided to trim down the portfolio while adding direct links to work that’s live and in action right now.
Oh, and just one more thing: how about some Rribbitz reports just to check in and show you the variety of what I do every week – from keeping clients happy to managing my business as an independent consultant? Welcome to the first Rribbitz report, shown below.
Please – explore, review, ponder. Then let me know what you think.
