Caught this great comic today via Twitter (yes, I do lurk on Twitter once in a while, don’t judge me) and I couldn’t help but relate it to the last search conference I was at. Even moreso, as a smaller agency this isn’t just about coming back from a conference and trying to hang onto the great ideas you heard, it’s about every day.
No matter how much time you carve out in your day to implement some great new idea, it seems a million or more things require immediate attention and it’s incredibly hard to get the ball rolling. I guess this is why I manage by day and work at night…thus the reason my former blog was known as “Search Marketing Insomniac”. I wonder how many other solo or small agency SEOs find themselves being more productive either outside the office or after dusk?
