Taking Judo Classes – If you fancy taking up a new hobby, need something to increase your level of fitness or fancy improving your self defence capabilities, you might want to consider signing up for local Judo classes. Most major towns are home to a number of Judo clubs or schools and apart from gaining the aforementioned benefits you can also use these to meet with new people and make new friends. Now Judo is one of the more modern of the martial arts and was in fact only formulated in 1882 by one Kano Jigoro from Japan. It is now practised worldwide and is even a sport in the Olympic Games, so it has come a long way since the 1880s.

The first world champion of Judo was Shokichi Natsui who won the title in 1956.

This gentle system of unarmed combat has now become mostly a sport with complex rules and scoring methods, bit don’t let this put you off because it is a fun thing to do with plenty of health and wellbeing benefits. Maybe if you stick to it you will one day be a Black Belt!

Finding a Childminder – In these modern times when we all lead busy lives and both parents have to work, finding a childminder is a common problem for many of us. Now of course when it comes to our kids, it is not just a case of finding a childminder but identifying a decent one who we can trust to look after our kids properly. This is not a simple objective but is made easier if you ensure that any prospective childminder that you interview is properly registered with Ofsted, meaning they and their premises have been checked out and okayed but the relevant authorities.

After scouring through local rags, the internet, Yellow Pages etc you should have a short list that you can check out. Head down to their premises (take the kids too) and check them out for yourself, you often get a “feeling” when you find the right person. Make sure they can cover the times that you need covering and make sure they are aware of all your child’s needs before they begin. Fingers crossed, all should go well if you have found the right childminder.

What are the other digital assets that you might have? A mobile website, You Tube channel, a Facebook page, maybe a linkedin profile, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, some of electronic direct mail like a newsletters and more, do you have a blog, do you have a forum? All of these digital assets need to be assessed. When it comes to looking at your website in particular you can look at the numbers.

Firstly look at the your website conversions, are you attracting enough quality leads, are you make enough sales, if that number is not right then you should perhaps look at the traffic, where does it come from, they they come back again and again and are they buying anything? How many unique visitors per month are you getting, and what is the percentage of new and repeat visitors. What is behind these numbers, what’s the percentage of hits on those particular pages which are performing well, and then what can be done to improve things.

What’s the competition getting up to and what digital marketing initiatives should you be undertaking, these are the sort of things that we want to look into to make sure that we’ve got the strategy right and then we’re building the digital assets that are going to support the business plan to help you move forward with your digital marketing program. Good Luck
