Consistency over shiny

I don't feel like I'm that good of a marketer.

The thing I do well is that I'm consistent.

Every day I'm writing my emails and sending them out.

Every day I'm helping customers by answering their questions and trying to make my writing clearer.

Every month I'm scheduling dozens of articles to be published to my website.

None of this is complicated or complex.

But it works.

It works because the consistency reinforces itself.

I've been publishing articles all the way back to 2005.

I've been sending an email every weekday since February 2017.

There's so much more I can do and more that I'd want to do.

But it's become more important to be consistent. Especially as the hype and marketing fad cycle spins faster and faster.
