As an entrepreneur, you have that gadget, habit, app, or book that makes your work easier, motivates you to do more and that’s what we refer to as a CEO Hack. It helps you achieve maximum productivity and stick to your goals regardless of the hurdles you face as an entrepreneur. For instance, it could be a pro tip on managing employees to make the workplace a conducive environment for everyone. Maybe it’s an app that you have that helps you plan and execute tasks on time. It could also be a book that you read and it brings ideas your way on how to scale your business. The list goes on.
You can check our CEO Hacks and different entrepreneurs’ CEO Hacks below where we have insightful responses.
This year has been the year of AI. Midjourney in particular has revolutionised the way I work; helping me to create better proposals and concept art, streamlining the pre-production process for animations, and in multiple cases, helping us to win new work. As a resource, Midjourney has become part of the process for a lot of our pitching and pre-production work.

These unsung heroes – I think it’s safe to call them that – often overlooked in favor of flashier marketing maneuvers, have proven to be invaluable to my business. Through personal connections and genuine collaborations, we've crafted authentic narratives that resonate with my audience. This year, leveraging these micro-ambassadors has expanded my company’s reach and created a loyal crew of customers who champion our brand with fervor.

Online surveys have become an invaluable strategy for my business lately. It's cost-effective and highly authentic. Our team delves into the audience's needs, preferences, and feedback through these surveys, offering a direct line to understanding market dynamics. We're also able to create insightful blogs and visual content as source magnets for other websites, which is effective for generating organic traffic and backlinks. It's been a powerful strategy, fueling our understanding of the market while boosting our online presence and engagement in a meaningful way.

#6- AI to generate passive leads
This year I used AI to generate leads for my my digital agency literally while I sleep. The Ai chatbot demonstrates to a business owner how Ai can work for their business and then offers to book a meeting with me. I literally wake up to new appointments in my diary with people who are pre-qualified because they have had a great experience with my Ai chatbot. Totally changes the conversations you have with business owners when they have already experienced how you can help their business.

The most used hack/tool that I've used this year is ChatGPT. It has certainly hit the market by storm and saves me hours every day in programming time. The key part of running a SaaS is coding new features and managing the current code base. And while ChatGPT doesn't have all the answers it certainly gets you 80% of the way there. ChatGPT will readily do all the typing for you so you can move from a creation mindset to editing and reviewing what is said.
