Monday's around here at Tin Shingle are filled with motivation. Sometimes we channel that motivation into the theme of getting money things done - like pitching a new client or advertiser, or designing a financial class with money experts who specialize in working with entrepreneurs and artists (yes, look for that signup opportunity!) It could even mean sending out invoices, paying invoices, or signing on with a new ecommerce tools at your website (yes, that's going on over here!) We call it #MoneyMondays.

This Challenge was issued to Tin Shingle Members the Monday before Valentine's Day - to send their favorite business a Valentine by way of a good review. That's a Valentine that keeps on giving and giving!
Maybe you've been planning to use the Super Bowl as a trending topic to get press around, yet maybe you put it off. Or perhaps you thought it wasn't for you - this sport may have nothing to do with your business. But there is an important factor to the Super Bowl that we did not discuss during February's TuneUp: unpredictability.
A sneak-peek from our new Editorial Calendar Pin-Up Tool coming...Women's History Month is in March. That's a great tie-in to any momentum one is looking for. March is just around the corner, and it doubles with the verb "march". Could pitch your activities to short lead media or digital versions of print magazines, see who bites.
Want to see when other important dates are that you need a leg up on? All of these are in Tin Shingle's Blog Planning and Production Calendar, which you can download from here. All-Access Members of Tin Shingle get it for free!

Happy New Year!
This is the year of your business blog - to educate your clients & customers.
Guys - this is the year you are harnessing the power of Google, and the power of controlling your message to your clients and customers. As Facebook tightens the squeeze on how your reach your people - limiting the views of your posts to bigger dollars - you need to take control now and give your clients and customers the most compelling information about why they should hire you. How do you do that?
This week is our last live TuneUp for 2016, and it is dedicated to setting your 2017 Resolutions for Business and Personal. On it, we will be hearing lifestyle recommendations from Jane Savage of Savage Health, and Galia Gichon of Down to Earth Finance. I will be providing suggestions for resolutions you can make in SEO, Social Media and PR. In addition to this, we want to read and publicize your resolutions on the air and in Tin Shingle's blog.
Filling your Instagram feed with fresh ideas can be challenging at times, which is where Internet trends come in! Such as the currently trending rage, #MannequinChallenge, which is when people pose in interesting actions, and the camera floats between them, giving you a micro-glimpse into an emotion or experience within that setting.
