I know whiteboards aren't a technical topic (well unless you're referring to the cool ones that connect to computers or wifi) but sometimes it's best to step away from the computer to let the creativity flooooowwwwww! 🙂
I LOVE whiteboards!!! I do my best planning on them. Sometimes that planning includes post-it notes (another major love) too!
I'm going to do my first sponsorship table next Tuesday and we're limited to a small round cocktail table, nothing on the walls or floors. Which leaves the table top (I've been trying to think of a way to use the FRONT of the table, which will be linen).
You know what … let me step back for a moment …
I don't know if you know but I've finally found my place as an entrepreneur. I have always loved systems and automation. What I found is most entrepreneurs (which I chose to serve) are scared of systems. As a matter of fact that get a bit freaked out when you start talking about them, LOL! So what's the equivalent of systems to an entrepreneur and is a “hot” word right now? FUNNELS! Woo hoo!
So my business now focuses on setting up sales, marketing, & launch funnels and automating as much as we possibly can of each and every process for my clients.
Okay, now that we've got you all caught up. 😉
PROBLEM #1: At my table I want to be able to have the ability to run through some funnels with visitors, so I need something that could fit on the tabletop. Not sure I'll have time but I'll have the stuff if I do! 🙂
SOLUTION #1: NuBoard
Found this amazingly perfect solution, a table top whiteboard measuring 16.7 x 12.2 inches. I can see so many ways to use this handy tool.
- Obviously, I can use this to present information as a dry erase board.
- I can use this for editing pages without actually writing on the page (because of the transparent overlays).
- Great place to put vinyl cling stickers for presentation (I'll explain more next week. If I forget, please ask me!
PROBLEM #2: As much as I love dry erase I get really annoyed when I go to write something and end up smearing or wiping away ink in another place on the board or leaning up against a whiteboard and accidentally wiping away some of the ink off. Do you know what I mean?
SOLUTION #2: Staedtler Lumocolor Correctable Pens
These pens are freakin' FANTASTIC!!! You can touch the ink (gently) and it won't come off!
I still use dry erase markers when I'm working on the big boards but these are so much better for smaller areas, where fine-tip writing is needed, or something you want to keep for a little while.
Just take my word for it!
(I'll be sharing these again soon with another favorite product I use all the time now.)
A couple extra little dry erase tips:
- If the dry erase ink has been on the board for a long time, it takes a bit of “elbow-grease” to get it off. You can simply write over it (I use black) and then erase, works wonderfully.
- (I've heard) if you accidentally use a Sharpie on a whiteboard, write over it with a dry erase marker, then erase the mark. 🙂
