I am interested in peoples responses to what they view as the highest priorities to build a successful online business? Or put another way - how would you best utilise the limited time you have in building a successful online business?

Thanks in anticipation!

I'm the type of individual that thrives on helping other people in the way that my mind works. Even that my mind WORKS is a huge confidence booster because I was taught (wrongly) that my mind being different from other people's minds, wasn't working.

There are times that I'll feel burned out because I've been hammering out the Course work and I'll feel like I've got a weight around my neck dragging me down. Then I'll realize, "Hey, I've been here a while, I know a LOT of information about this because I've been at this affiliate stuff for a good 3 years or longer, how can I help somebody else?"

At that point, I go flying into the "Give and Take" thread and just scroll through and pick the ones that catch my eye or haven't had an answer yet. After an hour or two of answering questions, I feel like the heavy weight is removed and I can move forward again.

Enjoy your perspective. One of the things I've already in my short time is how much I learn from answering others questions, reviewing their blogs & pages. I can see what I feel is working well and maybe what I feel is not quite so effective. I can learn various tips or methods etc that has not been covered in the training yet.

And of course, just interacting with others and helping others is wonderful for our soul.

For me, as a real newcomer, it is both classwork and building the site. They go hand-in-hand.

Good comment. Have to agree and that is the power of WA, it gives us the tools for both.

For me, I feel you need to make sure the information you are providing is clear, concise and easily readable. Personally, I make mine sound as if I am speaking directly to the person viewing my site. Don't talk down to the reader, but make them feel involved in the conversation. Yes, you give information, but you should also engage them. The more you engage them, the better your site will do.

Thanks Alison, great comment.
Question - is there anything in particular you use in your writing to try and increase engagement? Questions, examples ...

Hi rwagener. My priority in building a successful online business would be to write in a friendly and convincing way. I think brevity is key, and unless its technical, KISS.

I think I'm the typical website visitor. I have an idea of sorts in mind when I google something. I don't want a tome, yet I want to find my stuff quickly anyway. I get itchy fingers pretty fast if I don't see it in the first few sentences or paragraphs.

I think if I write for my visitors, not at them, and give them a bug free website (as much as possible anyway), I can have a successful online business.

I actually appreciate all the tasks for sure. Even posting a question here as part of the training gets you to understand this aspect of the site and get you more involved at the same time.
