Happy Bank Holiday!
Are you working today or taking some time off to enjoy your family, and hobbies or just sit back and take a breath?
I've created this week's Monday Nudge so that you still have ideas for the week, but this isn't an endorsement to create content today. We can have a day off you know.
In fact, if you've not heard me say it before, you only need to create one piece of content per week to be better than 99% of LinkedIn users!!
Enjoy your bank holiday and have a great week!
If you want to have more confidence on LinkedIn then I have another LinkedIn Daily Habit Workshop starting next week. See below for details or pass this to someone you know who needs a hand.
Here are ideas for Content this week.
Coming up with 5 new ideas for you every week is sometimes dead easy and at other times a real struggle. But because I also create my own content I know what works and I 'see content everywhere'.
My family get fed up with me at times I'm sure.
The best method for creating content is to think of a theme and stick to that theme once per week. My go-to recommendation is the Tax Tip Tuesday suggestion.
But you can choose anything that works for you. By having just one day and a theme to focus on you'll spend the whole week subconsciously coming up with ideas.
Go on, give it a go.
Meanwhile here are some ideas for you.
Parkinson's Awareness Week (and Day)
Tuesday sees World Parkinsons' Day but the whole week is dedicated to making us more aware of this terrible neurological condition. Everyone has their own set of symptoms and deals with them in different ways. Do you have any stories to share? Are you affected by anyone in your family with the condition? Are you doing any fundraising to support the cause?
The Grand National
On Saturday we have the Grand National. One of the biggest horse racing events in the UK calendar. Do you approve? Do you love horse racing? Do you do an office sweepstakes? What is the largest amount you've won or lost on the horses? Any funny horsey stories that you can share to give us a smile?
Apparently, 13 April is National Scrabble day. Who knew, hey what a great game. Do you play Scrabble? What's your longest word? Who normally wins in your house? Have you tried Banagrams instead? Do you have any go-to words for when you have the Z the X or the Q? What is your highest-ever score? Do you play in a club? Do you allow rude words when you play?
We've been to one already this year and planning another in July so I was wondering if you have any weddings this year. How many? Talk about what you like about weddings. What about the fun you have choosing outfits? What's the furthers you have travelled for a wedding. Do you have any funny stories from a wedding? What's the best thing you've seen at a wedding? I heard of a tattoo van at one wedding!!!
So many people are talking about AI at the moment, where do you stand on this fence? Why not share your thoughts? Have you used any AI recently? What do you use it for? Are you embracing this new technology or running away from it? I bet you've already got some that are already part of your software so share how it's helping you. I use Grammarly to check my spelling and Grammar. That's great AI in action!
Have a great week I am here to help if you have any questions. You know I want you to love I love LinkedIn I hope that these ideas inspire you to create some content this week. Remember........ By creating content you will stand out. People will see you as an expert and you'll get more connections! This Week's Video for you. Have fun! That's what it's about eh?
The next LinkedIn Daily Habit Workshop is next week on Monday 17 April. If you've not heard these sessions are great fun and by the end of the week-long workshop, you'll be getting so much more value from your LinkedIn.
Here's an extract from Ryan Ellis's wonderful testimonial
Ashley has converted me, I've seen the light! He's enabled me to see Linkedin for what it is, the world's largest 24/7 networking event, where being yourself amongst the hordes of corporate avatars is a distinct advantage.
You can read the full version on the recommendation section of my profile on LinkedIn.
It's just £110.00 for 5 x 15-minute sessions. You also get a workbook, access to my training portal and also a 1:1 catch-up session with me to consolidate your learning and get any extra help if needed.
