Do you need some help to stay on track and get stuff done while you’re hanging out on Facebook?
I know so many creatives who lose hours online, searching, scrolling and hoping for inspiration to strike. Facebook is one of those platforms where you tell yourself you are ‘working’ because you are scrolling through your news feed but in reality you need to stay sharp, focused and on track every time you hit Facebook.
Want to know one of my best Facebook habits ever?
Every time I check Facebook I head to one of my business pages with something important – or fun – to say.
It is a habit I have built up over time. As I run Social Media for a number of business pages it is definitely part of my workday, but I do find it is a great habit to get into. I’m not there just to scroll or check out my news feed – I’m there to say something!
Personal Facebook accounts can be distracting – think an hour wasted without even blinking! And business pages can be complete time wasters too if you do not organise yourself right.
Plan out your week and stay on track!

Every day I see small businesses struggling on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
I see lots of complaints about Facebook’s algorithms changing the game and businesses worrying about how to best get customers to receive notifications from their page.
But the single biggest mistake I see small businesses making is not putting the effort into a regular, consistent and content heavy social media schedule.
This is the single biggest way to get seen and shared on Facebook.
As a small business I know you are constantly trying to cut through the piles of paper and emails and general administration to even get to the creative stuff, let alone the marketing and social media. But it can be easy and quick and I want to show you how.

I love Crafternoon Tea markets. Created and designed to be packed full of handmade and crafty talents this market is one of the best in Auckland I reckon. I have designed the last two flyers for the market and while they are quite different in styles I love how both convey what the market is all about in one glance.
See here for more about the markets and here to like their Facebook page.
P.S Love Ideas Ink will be at the next market too!
I have a little something different for you this week!
I have finally sorted out my Love Ideas Creative brand and design business and wanted to show you a few things I’ve been working on! I’ll show you something new every day this week and then show my new website.
Kohekohe NZ Honey is a great small business that I worked with a few months ago. They are a boutique business selling comb honey within New Zealand.
The brief was for something rustic looking and earthy while still conveying the fantastic benefits of honey and the fact the honey was 100% pure and NZ made.
At the moment they are just selling comb honey but hopefully later in the year there will be liquid honey too so I’ll keep you up to date with this growing brand.
For those of you who have never seen comb honey, it is cut straight off the frames that the bees work on – here are a couple of pictures of the frames.
The honeycomb construction is an amazing thing, those bees are so clever!
Oh and for anyone in New Zealand you can buy the comb honey here – apparently it is amazing!
