Good morning Reader,

This month's quote is not motivational as much as it's a daily reminder as we go back to the daily groove:

"Wake up and smell the routine"
- Unknown

P.S. Not ready to read the full email now? Save it for the weekend and read it with a cuppa 😉

Let us start with an exciting announcement 🥁

We just confirmed the headline keynote speaker for this year's Virtual #CSMDay2021 - it will be none other than the amazing Mark W. Schaefer!

Mark is a globally recognised keynote speaker, educator, business consultant, and author. His blog {grow} is hailed as one of the top marketing blogs in the world.

He is a bestselling author of nine books, but these three are our absolute favourite ones:

  • Cumulative Advantage: How to Build Momentum for your Ideas, Business, and Life Against All Odds — Mark’s latest book explores the art and science of momentum.
  • Marketing Rebellion: The Most Human Company Wins — Visionary book hit number one on Amazon in both “marketing” and “advertising.”
  • KNOWN: How to Build and Unleash Your Personal Brand in the Digital Age — World’s number one book on personal branding.

So what are you waiting for?

From Simon Raybould: Want to get to know more about why to tender and how to do it? (For the UK only!)

Getting work with the public sector can look like a nightmare… and it can be in reality too! But if you know the rules (written and unwritten!) it’s much easier. Why would you want to tender for public sector contracts? Because by the time a tender is open they already know what they want and all you have to do is show them they should get you to do it. Oh, and once you’ve got the contract, it’s work that comes to you for a long, long time.

From Hannah Munby: A new community for young art collectors

Hannah has just launched a new community of young art collectors at Fen Ditton Gallery. It’s for new and early stage collectors who are interested in art, perhaps have thought about collecting but want to gain the confidence to start. It’s all about breaking down the barriers of this illusive ‘art-world’ that for too long has been seen as only for the wealthy and old! Their website link is below or follow them on Instagram.

From Gus Bhandal: Why Clubhouse is better than ever

For business owners, in particular, it is full of free support and industry leaders are imparting their knowledge to everyone in the audience. You get access to people that you wouldn’t talk to anywhere else, and you get to join in the conversation (if you want to) rather than watch from afar.

From Andy Lambert: Is organic content set to make a comeback on Facebook?

Hot off Linkedin: these are the latest quick social media news you need to know this week.

📝 LinkedIn rolls out 'Articles' for Company Pages
🎤 LinkedIn makes live-streaming more accessible
💰 LinkedIn is the latest to roll out their 'Creator Fund.'
📈 Facebook announces 'split testing' of organic posts
😅 Facebook begins rolling out 'work accounts' (to the collective sigh of relief of Social Media Managers worldwide)

Instagram Reels might have been here for over a year but there’s no shame in saying you still haven’t got to grips with them! Whether you just don’t know what button to press, what to film or find them a huge time suck Pip has you covered in her workshop next week.
