A roaring crowd of 90,000 fans greeted U2 at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on June 30th, 2009. It was the first of the 110 shows of the 360° Tour. The tour was named for a stage configuration that made it possible for the audience to almost completely surround the stage.
Construction of the stage was of gargantuan proportions. The steel structure weighed 220 tons. The four legs were supporting 170 tons of giant screens, audio, and lighting. It would take five days to erect the structure and another two days to dismantle it before transporting it to the next venue.
The challenge involved maintaining the flow of the back-to-back concerts while seamlessly assembling and transporting “The Claw” between tour dates.
Natasha is one of my favorite people.
You can tell by the way she writes, interacts with her audience and through her videos, that she loves helping people make transformations in their business.
She’s just the kind of person that you want to be around, and you’ve no doubt felt that, since you’re here too!
Hi, I’m Rita Barry, an email marketing strategist and conversion focused website designer. In other words, I help entrepreneurs create email automation sequences, traffic strategies for list building and design their websites based on audience needs and actions (using data instead of hunches!)
I’ve been a happy Trello user for years: I use it for my editorial calendar, for keeping track of my business operations, for passion projects, as well as various team projects I run. I’ve converted at least twenty other people to Trello, and they loved it so much, they started using it for their own business, school, and personal projects.
For every entrepreneur, life is a series of events and segments of time.
Copious spare time is scarce (or non-existent) because there is always something else to do or coming up waiting in the wings.
Products to launch, networking events to attend and leads to follow up with, speaking opportunities to line up and prepare for, deadlines to meet, email newsletters to draft, edit, and schedule to release, marketing campaigns to develop, new clients to get acquainted with, trade shows to prepare for, business goals to reach. The list goes on and on.
For many entrepreneurs without a team, it is your sole responsibility to develop and produce new products and services, create and implement your marketing and social media strategies, attend to administrative tasks, serve as the sales force and deal with customer service issues, pay the bills and collect unpaid monies that are owed to you, network, build your brand, and if you are lucky, get a little bit of sleep or try to have a life outside of your business.
Nurturing current customers is easier, less expensive, and more effective than the process of acquiring new ones.
However, we tend to concentrate more on lead generation than on enhancing the experience and happiness of our existing clients.
It’s true, nurturing prospective clients is critical, but how can you make sure there’s a “happily ever after” once you and your client have committed to working together?
If you are just tuning into our Trello series, check out the last week’s post, where we talked about how Trello can help you tame your email overwhelm.
At the end of the post I asked you to share with me the areas of your life and business that you’d want to be able to manage with Trello.
The two areas that received most votes were Managing Content for a Blog and Managing Client work. So, as promised, those are my next two articles.
