Remember math drills? Even though you got a perfect score on the last test, you still had to work those boring worksheets repeatedly. Why? Because the mind tends to think you know exactly what to do, but then when you are in a test situation, you go blank. The drills were a way of making sure you had the math facts in your muscle memory. Now you don't need to think or get out a calculator when you are asked to multiply 8 x 6. You just know it's 48. Repeatedly reviewing the basics helped you learn the necessary information.
Likewise it's always a good idea to review the basics of a marketing strategy, such as lead generation strategy, to make sure you have not gone blank on certain aspects. I found this syndicated article in repost.com when I was looking at ways to create content. I had always read about the idea of syndicating our own work, but I began wondering where the syndicated articles were and what was being done with them. That, however, is an article for another day.--Jaco.
