Here are some ideas on how to be uber-productive in your next 30 minutes:

  • Listen to this podcast where Tim Ash interviewed me about marketing fundamentals in conversion optimization — while you take a walk
  • Listen to the podcast — while you straighten your desk
  • Listen to the podcast — while doing lunges, squats, and sit ups
  • Listen to the podcast — while you do laundry
  • Listen to the podcast — during your commute

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The biggest mistakes online marketers make — and how to avoid them
  • Why and how your website should repel the wrong people
  • Why you should never claim you have no competitors
  • Why automatically-rotating sliders are lazy marketing that kill conversions
  • How to position yourself as the right solution to the right people at the right time
  • The value of doing a SWOT analysis

Now block off 30 minutes and listen to this podcast. If you knock off something else on your to-do list at the same time, you’ll feel so productive, you might as well call it a day and head over to happy hour. You deserve it.
