The fact that you’re reading this blog post say’s a lot about your character. You’re someone whose willing to do the leg work to get to where you want to be online and I can respect you for that.
Before I unload this amazing list of extremely helpful tips on you, I want you to know and remember something important. Whenever you’re feeling like you can’t succeed digitally please remember this next paragraph…
It is 2018, exactly 20 years ago the world wide web was created and it has advanced into the most powerful tool in the world today. There is NO reason why you should not become successful online. All of the tools for you to succeed exist (& here’s a secret, if you’re willing to dig around long enough, you can find all the tools online for FREE. Anything that anyone is selling online is out there for free if you’re willing to look hard enough for it.)
Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s jump right into these MAJOR tips for your success online:
Have a Purpose
You may not know what your purpose in life is, but as an online business owner what you should know for sure is the purpose of your website/blog. I cannot stress this enough which is why it’s number one on the list.
If you don’t know the purpose of your website/blog and you start to build your audience, it is very likely that majority of the content you present to them wont be tailored specifically for them. If this is the case, your engagement will suffer.
I highly suggest finding the purpose of your website/blog first and the rest will follow.
Have a Strategy
All of the top dogs have a clear strategy. I personally suffered with this for half a year when I first started UYS. Everyday, I would just wake up and wing it and eventually I found myself getting frustrated. I would sit in front of the computer for hours completely uninspired.
With a bomb strategy in place, you hit the ground running! Every single day, I know exactly what I should be working on.
You’ll be much more productive with a strategy than without one.
This is the #1 thing majority of suffering online entrepreneurs are missing. VALUABLE CONSISTENT CONTENT! (I myself still struggle with being consistent from time to time.)
They focus on the sale more often then the value of the actual content.
Have you ever came across an extremely boring looking blog or site and the owner is making a full-time income off their business? I can guarantee you 100% that the content they’re producing is valuable and consistent.
Focus on the value and consistency of your content and the funds will follow.
Most entrepreneurs gain fast success online by being present every-single-day! Remind your audience everyday that you’re still here rooting for them and to help.
Have a Marketing Strategy
This may seem like a no brainer to some, but a lot of digital entrepreneurs (especially beginners) don’t have any kind of marketing strategy in place and even worse, they’re not using SEO.
If you’re someone who has yet to put a marketing strategy in place, I highly encourage you to check out the the Free Sales & Growth Training. It is short, sweet, and to the point. (I myself have used the exact tips in this training to start blogging full-time.)
Focus on the Numbers
Most people don’t like numbers, I used to be like most people until I learned something really cool about numbers that I’m going to share with you today…
If you start to like numbers, they’ll start to like you back. I hated dealing with numbers all the way up until I built UYS. If I wanted UYS to be successful I needed to focus on the facts and there’s no easier way to do that than focusing on analytics.
It doesn’t matter how many platforms you’re using to run your digital business, you need track your analytics to see how you’re doing daily, weekly, and on a monthly basis. The numbers don’t lie!
This is another one that some may think is a no brainer but it’s actually pretty common for online entrepreneurs to give up after the 6 month mark. One of the main reasons is because there’s no more inspiration or creativity left.
When we come up with cool, new and creative idea’s, our brain is pulling it from something that we’ve already seen, read, or tried before.
If you’re not constantly exposing yourself to new cool things, your brain will run out of things to pull from. (In other words, the well will run dry.)
It is said that most successful business owners read about 40 books a year, and most successful bloggers read new articles weekly!
If you haven’t been educating yourself as much lately, I challenge you to learn something new related to your success online daily!
