Here at MirrorMePR, we’ve helped businesses of all sizes streamline their workflow by becoming a crucial part of the team, in this blog, our Social Media Marketing & PR team share their experiences.
Your business is growing fast, and you’re struggling to juggle family, life and work. Your family think you work too hard (and are always telling you so) you feel like you missing out on life and fun (who needs sleep anyway, right?) and your email inbox is a sea of red flags, and your desk covered with post-it notes. You’re possibly driving your team mad with late delivery of everything off including some pretty critical decision making (And probably also yourself in the process) and can’t see the wood for the trees (or desk for paperwork)
And it’s not because you are lazy or unmotivated, quite the opposite, because, for the most of your waking hours, you are eating, thinking and breathing your brand and nurturing your passion for your product. You no doubt will have a vision of where you want to be in 6 months, 12 months, 5, 10, 15 years plus time. Being a perfectionist is part of your success so far, but being perfect in everything is impossible. For those of us who have ever started our own business, there is always going to be a point where we need to reach out for support and get help in areas that we can’t invest any more time into, whether that time is spent training or actually doing the role itself.
Well, guess what? You’re not alone!
This is a story that we hear told time and time again from businesses that are growing fast, multi-tasking at a superhero level and attempting to give the impression to all outside of the company that this ‘running a business’ lark is a breeze!
You see the real reason for your success is the fact that you care so much about your business that you’re involved in every aspect of it and THAT’S a good thing, the not so great part is that as your responsibilities grow and change and your work load doubles, triples, your brain also becomes busy and overcrowded, and it’s easy than ever to get lost as to where to start and lost sight of that finish line!
All our clients are perfectionists, but they also know that they need to prioritise their time to do what they do best: concentrating on sales and focus on managing their staff and building their businesses. We also understand that handing over control of certain aspects of your business can be challenging, especially if you have always worked in these areas of the business yourself, personally.
But the truth is that you now need help, and professional support that fits with your vision for the future and your PR and marketing choice will be a big part of that positive future. We understand that growing your business has its challenges, which is why we work really closely with our clients to understand their unique and individual business needs and how we can support them in so many more ways than just a standard PR service. We take the pressure off worrying about what to post on their social media posts and when, creating campaign ideas, sourcing talent for photographic shoots, blog writing or even just imparting some of our 25 years plus worth of industry experience ensuring that’s just a few less things to worry about. With our experience in supporting both growing and globally established businesses, we know what it takes to help build and maintain your brand awareness, every step of the way that you in that journey.
Our clients know that our passion for their products is real and goes beyond our role as ‘just a PR’ and know that their passion is also our passion. Shouldn’t you have someone to share your journey with?
