This Is A Game-Changer!

At some point on your online business journey, there comes a time when reality hits home and you realise you’ve been running around like a head-less chicken.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Let’s face it – there’s so much to take in and learn that it’s virtually impossible to learn everything, let alone keep up with all the changes.

But….all is not lost!

This Is A Game-Changer!

This Is A Game-Changer!

(Kalen Emsley)

You see, what’s actually been happening without you realising it is that you’ve been gaining experience.

Admittedly, the experience is mainly based at this stage on what doesn’t work and what not to do.

It’s the price of your eventual success, if you like.

So anything to speed up the process that gets you on the right track and focused is very much welcomed.

Consider these tasks you can undertake that are efficient uses of your time, as well as great content creators:-
• Interviewing “experts” in your preferred field of endeavour;
• Outsource the writing of a book that you can sell;
• Create an educational course that can be presented online.
• Offer to guest post for someone in your niche with a responsive (and sizeable) audience.

The above is not an exhaustive list, but is merely to give you an idea of what’s possible and to get your creative juices flowing.

Now, if all you’ve been doing up to now is learning about social media, how to build websites and other techie stuff is it really going to provide you with an ongoing and increasing residual income stream for many years to come?

Think about it, seriously.

And if your idea of getting out of the rat race is, or was, to build an online business, are you still exchanging time for money – or building your business in a way that you will continue to exchange time for money?

That’s not a good business model, is it? You’ve tried it for most of your working life, and yet you’ve not quite got the hang of what working for yourself really means.

To help you break out of that employee mentality, here’s a selection of great tips from some canny and successful entrepreneurs that will help you to progress and could be a game-changer.

With thanks to Belinda at http://www.sheinspires.com.au/ for the following:-

• Decide what you want to achieve – and be very clear.

• Develop a simple strategy to help you achieve what you want to achieve – keep it simple.

• Measure progress regularly – so you’re not driving blind!.

• Acknowledge it will take time – to learn, to implement, to see positive results.

• Take action.

• Network – keep opening doors.

• Be consistent in terms of what you do i.e. keeping appointments, posting to the social media platforms etc.

• Give value-added information freely. Think in terms of abundance, and not in terms of finite or limited resources.

• Be persistent and build momentum.

• Embrace change – it ain’t gonna stop!

• You need to give before you can get – focus on providing great value. What comes back will be the rewards.

• Marketing is more important than the techie stuff. Master the marketing – and outsource the techie stuff.

The items listed above may not be game-changers on their own, but combine any number of them and you could create something powerful to give your business a massive boost.

One of the great ways to help you achieve a successful online business is to build a responsive list of subscribers – but first, as already highlighted above, you have to give!

Email marketing is one of the best ways you can give some really great valuable information, especially if it is what your subscribers want.
