Did You Help Someone Today?
When it comes to productivity, I use three simple phrases (or questions) to ensure that work towards my online business gets done each day.
Some days I'm feeling motivated and get lots done, other days, not so much. I'm sure anyone reading this can relate.
It's also important to note that you are in complete control of how much time you devote to the training here at WA and the pace in which you build your own online business.
If you can spend part-time or full-time hours working on your business, that's fine.
If you can only spend an hour or two, this is fine too!
The important thing is how you are using this time and I believe these three quick 'mantras' could help with productivity....or at least keep you motivated to get the slightest work done on days that you feel lazy.
Here's the first one.
Did You Write Today?
As a website owner, content creation is key in terms of growth, engaging with your audience, and even helping your overall rankings in Google.
With this question, (did you write today?), I specifically mean content creation.
Did you publish a new post to your website? If not, have you at least done some research for a new post and created half the article (500 words or so)?
500 words per day beats 0. And by day 2, you should have enough content to publish a new post or page to your website.
And if you're following the WA training and posting regularly, you will see traffic and results.
Did You Help Someone Today?
This is self explanatory but a big one for me personally.
And technically just by writing and publishing a post to your website you could check this off as helping someone, but I always take it a step further.
Helping someone you can be as easy as poking your head into live chat area here WA for a minute or two and assisting anyone with a question.
Another good idea would be visiting a forum related to your niche to see if you can offer your input or expertise there. You'd be surprised by the amount of questions you may know the answer to, not to mention you may learn something new yourself or come up with ideas for content. (Reddit or Quora are two good places to start).
If you're part of any FB groups related to your niche, or even by sending out an email to your subscribers, these are both great ways of helping too.
For me, I try to help at least one referral each day. Of course if there are more questions 'coming in', I answer them ASAP.
The more the merrier, if I invited you to WA, try me!
Don't mind me or the goofy expression, just enjoying some morning tea.
Helping in this way, whether you are sharing through emails, in a forum, or on FB, can be a great way to spread brand awareness (awareness about your website) and build yourself up as an authority.
It's also a great way to maybe learn something new yourself.
Did You Learn Anything New Today?
The final question that I came up with for daily productivity is did you learn anything new today?
If you're a Premium member here at WA, you have unlimited quality business training at your disposal.
IF you're not Premium yet, nows a great time to invest in yourself as WA is holding their annual Black Friday sale. This gives members a chance to save $289. You can learn more here.
Learning something new each day could mean finishing a lesson inside of WA, watching or catching up on a webinar you may have missed, researching something related to your niche and taking noted.
It could be reading a chapter from a book, anything....
These are simple tasks I do each day to ensure that I am being productive in some way. Even on the days I don't necessary feel like doing anything at all.
Building a successful online business requires a commitment of time and effort, if you can manage doing what is shared above, at minimum, you're at least building in the right direction. Which beats doing nothing at all.
