REWORK

Rework
by David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried

Probably the best book about business in the times of Corona…

Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. Read it and you’ll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don’t need outside investors, and why you’re better off ignoring the competition. The truth is, you need less than you think. You don’t need to be a workaholic. You don’t need to staff up. You don’t need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don’t even need an office. Those are all just excuses.

What you really need to do is stop talking and start working.

Facebook marketing, perks or pains?

Facebook used to be an essential digital marketing tool, we all know, including the wave of small entrepreneurs promoting solely on their pages having in mind the (newly obsolete) remark, “you don’t exist outside FB”.
Lately, as I am working remotely, I have been completing the digital marketing plans for one of my customers
Well, I have never been into FB marketing as I believe that it is good solely for brand awareness, nevertheless I went with the flow as I intended to make the most of it for my customer.
Previously, I have started two blogs, of course after completing the SEO audit and SEO content strategy for my customer’s website.
Then I started the page… I compelled and pestered my friends and friends of friends to like&follow the page, then I promoted the page for more Likes as everybody knows that a page with few Likes does not sit well in the eyes of possible customers.
I boosted posts, following the content posting strategy for both the blogs and the website and whatnot.
I have kept the shelves of the blogs shiny and sparkling with new stories and new pics…
Nevertheless, I couldn’t help but notice how very few of the page’s fans turned into customers. As if I didn’t know it, that buying publicity on FB is like buying stardust, it is just visual, pertaining to the symmetry of the page…

The other day there came the last straw, as I read in the news about a group promoting small businesses from Romania, I joined it with the identity of the FB page.
Then, within few hours, a lot of posts from the page disappeared without any message or warning, including the cover photo and “Our Story”, which I cannot repost. The page was reported for spam under the circumstances that this was the ONLY FB group I have joined so far. Unbelievable!!!
A lot of blood, sweat and tears that I put into this project have gone to blazes…

I am posting this, too, with a view to our futile attempts to sell more through Facebook:

First and foremost the FB policy is wrong as it allows so may fake profiles in its network and on the other hand, it destroys the work of so many at the report/request of so few. I have written to them in the hope to have info of what I did wrong. No reply. The answer is that more and more small businesses will ditch Fb marketing.

As Twitter and Google have banned political advertising, maybe some politicians would trust the overpowering networking juice of FB…

I am illustrating with this photo in the idea that a surreal ride by a goat-drawn chariot is what I got lately.

They don’t teach you…

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman
