Ecommerce fundamentals

The basics to have in place for your online store and brand. What not to miss in your daily tasks. What activities to make an indispensable part of your strategy.

Influencer marketing, promo codes and referral links

Despite being an influencer is the dream of almost everyone on Instagram, influencer marketing is facing challenges. Trust in influencer posts on social media is declining sharply, with only 4% of people believing what they say.

But we don’t discourage you to use influencer marketing in your marketing mix. It makes perfect sense for consumer brands because of its precise targeting and lifestyle fit.

We only remind you to track the performance of influencer ROI closely in order to have your budget under control and generating the results you want.

So let’s go over the basics of influencer marketing from your point of view and how you can stay on top of it.

Tasks brand founders should delegate from the start

Tim Ferris was only able to become successful and famous for his 4-hour work week because he delegates his daily tasks to subordinates who handle everything for him. He doesn’t do the nitty-gritty of everyday operations himself and you don’t have to, either.

In fact, the sooner you delegate those time-consuming tasks, the better manager you will be because you’ll free up brain capacity for more long-term strategic thinking and creativity for building your brand.

What you gain when delegating:

  • Time
  • Efficiency
  • Brain power for the bigger picture
  • Employees specialize in the delegated activities and quality of work goes up (better than you doing it absent-mindedly)
