For those who are off until Monday... we got jealous and put your stapler in jello. Don't look in your bottom right desk drawer.

The Neon Goldfish team is just back for a couple of days so we did not have time to scour the internet and find the best marketing news for the week but we did not come empty-handed.

Just in time for the New Year, we have an article from the Neon Goldfish blog that is fitting. Enjoy.

The holidays came and went faster than you expected and now you’re searching for guidance on how you can make this year the best one ever for your business.

You know that marketing plays a key role in the success of any business. The problem is that marketing feather in your hat sometimes gets pushed to the back because of more pressing matters that continue to pop up throughout your day.

Do not worry. We are here to give you a little marketing guidance and help.

In this article, we are going to give you a simple checklist you can use to jumpstart your marketing in the new year. Here's a snapshot of what we cover:

Fish Food: Don't panic if a lot of this seems foreign and maybe just a little bit intimidating. The best thing you can do is just grab a cup of coffee and spend 15 minutes working on something. That's it... just 15 minutes today working on your marketing checklist. Tomorrow, grab another cup of coffee and spend another 15 minutes.
