It's that time of year, when we all start to feel the pinch. What is it that we want to achieve by the years end and what will 2018 look like.

For many of us, we have kicked some goals in 2017, but didn't quite stick to our New Years' Resolutions. If you are constantly on the improve, and wanting to grow as an individual, and in your careers or business, you know that you have to work out what is stopping you from reaching your full potential.
If you have found yourself on a steep learning curve over the past few years, don't become complacent, because doing just that will make you irrelevant, and I know this first hand.
I've had the month from hell - in a good way. Each morning I wake at 4am and I do social media for a client for the first hour, then connect with the US for the next hour - all before hopping in the shower.

Using your digital footprint to get out a message

The recent victory for Gay Marriage in Australia is a clear cut example of how a 'customers' identity means a lot about customer experience and thoughts. From electorate to electorate, voters had differing opinions. The further North you go, the less likely people are to support Gay Marriage. Areas heavily dominated by religious constituents were firm 'no's' and so on.

What if the world was watching?

A late afternoon flight back from Sydney saw me do something I never do - and that is watch a movie from Sydney to Melbourne. The movie in question was The Circle. Emma Watson, once again excels in her role with a social media company as an intern come celebrity leader, showcasing the fickle, yet real world of social media fame.

Ending 2017 on a high

It came and went like a fast paced, road runner – and now we are left with a mere 9 weeks until the end of what has been a phenomenal year by many accounts.

At Marketing Eye, our client base has increased by more than 30 percent giving our company greater exposure to more industry sectors and new product categories. We have commenced development of the first Robotic Marketer in the world, and are nearing the end of phase one of eskrape, our human resources management platform.

How PR has changed dramatically

The momentus shift from either writing a press release and distributing it to media or doing a pitch, to turning the tables and having the media follow companies and individuals on social media - public relations has been turned on its head.
Being an influencer on social media and owning a magazine with a decent distribution has resulted in our office often being inundated with products that people want us to test.

I am sure having offices full of millenials is also a draw card for many brands, and the fact that everyone is active on social media.
Friday never comes fast enough, not because I don't like my job, but due to the fact that my brain is trained to think that there is an euphoria to do with weekends.

In truth, my weekday brings me more joy than any weekend could, and while I work tirelessly on my many projects, it is the satisfaction I get from each and every project I finish that really has me pumped.

Marketing Eye goes from strength to strength and we will have our biggest year ever in 2017/18. This is especially sweet due to the fact that so much work has been put into getting the company into the position it is now.

As I embark on an ongoing improvement phase in the business, I note that there is one thing that I am doing wrong, that many other companies fall prey to.

How to get a big payrise

With all of this talk on what some people do to reach their career goals in Hollywood, it seems that we have forgotten the 'real' world.

In the real world, to get a big pay rise, you have to work really hard, ensure that the company is profiting from your work at a rate that is commensurate with industry standards.

As you have seen, some people get paid more than other for various reason:
