I came across the story of Obvious Adams back in the early 1990s, that pre-internet era where people like the fictional Gordon Gekko were the business demigods and the popular mantra was “[...] greed, for lack of a better word, is good [as] greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of evolutionary spirit”!
But the Obvious Adams' message was not about corporate greed nor demonstrating wealth at all costs, instead, it had something a lot simpler to offer. It claimed that achieving success by looking at things in a less complicated and more obvious way would be beneficial, and if it worked then, it will work now.
Whilst the story takes you through the rise of an American Ad-man from the early 20th century, the principles applied by Adams are timeless and, although we now live life at a zillion miles per hour with an ever-shorter attention span, quicker news cycle and entrepreneurs everywhere you turn, the story of Obvious Adams will help you ‘take a breath’ and start to actually see what is going on with your business or even your life.
You may have heard those popularised sayings such as ‘you can’t see the forest for the trees’ or ‘it’s as obvious as the nose on your face’. Well, these only highlight the fact that we are all becoming guilty of missing the obvious and, more often than not, the answers we are looking for are within the ‘obvious’; we only do not give ourselves the appropriate amount of time to see it.
And that is why we offer some ‘obvious’ digital tactics that we firmly believe every business owner should be evaluating when it comes to their digital footprint. As such, you will find eleven (11) points of ‘digital obviousness’, which we hope you will act on after having a read.
We appreciate you taking the time to download the '11 Obvious Ways To Get More Success From Your Digital Footprint' ebook and sincerely hope that you get something out of it.
