The good news is that as a creative person, you’re already accustomed to finding innovative solutions to problems — and if you treat stress as a problem, there is likely a way to beat it that is personal and specific to you. Everyone is different, and triggers of stress are different for each person. It’s helpful to know yourself well enough to combat stressors. I’m a designer, so these are my particular thoughts. Maybe you can relate.
Organize Your Area
If you’re stressed, that probably means you’re busy, and if you’re busy, you probably haven’t had time to clean your workspace recently. It happens to the best of us. A messy or cluttered desk can really make ‘worse’ a feeling of being overwhelmed, so take a ten-minute break to clean up yours space.
Social media has become like another person sitting at the dinner table. It’s everywhere, and if you aren’t on a platform, people look at you funny. Would you disagree? It’s fascinating. Maybe you’ve underestimated social media, maybe you’re active daily. I’ve been thinking about the great possibilities social media can bring, so I encourage you to get the most out of it that you can.
Some of these might be obvious, and that’s fine, let them refresh your social media perspective. If these are new challenges, maybe give them a second look.
Content Matters. Greatly. Be sure your content is relevant to you, but also engaging and interactive. Social media is a great vehicle for sharing content you’ve already written. It helps gain exposure, which is often the desired goal. It also has the power to keep content alive even after it isn’t the newest on the block. Write quality, share quality.
Every brand that has customers needs a social media connection. A website is usually a given, and social media activity can be helpful, but a blog is a diamond in the rough. A blog is a simple and easy tactic to show that you are serious about your brand, your company, or your product. Don’t have one? Aren’t convinced? Here are my thoughts…
Blogs play a vital role in helping your customers feel a personal connection with your company. This might not seem like a big deal, but it could be. With blogging, you can exchange views with your readers and engage in different discussions with them.
A blog, properly written and attended to, with the help of a web developer, can also help raise your company’s level of expertise. Regularly posting articles about topics relevant to your industry will show a passion and true interest in the subject. It can also help alleviate worry or help address a problem, showing integrity to your readers.
