Apology to All My Friends & Referrals
My fellow WA friends & referrals!
Some of you may have noticed that I'm not very responsive recently and it took me a few days to reply your message.
Just want to let you know that I'm still here, not going anywhere, still care about everyone of you.
I always try to reply all my messages everyday but there are a few reasons why I'm not so responsive recently:
- I'm getting a ton of referrals, which means lots of new messages, questions, notifications...
- I'm settling down in Taiwan with my girlfriend. This is one of my happiest things this year. Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, I'm able to end our 4-year long distance relationship & finally staying together.
- I have multiple projects going on. One of the biggest one is creating my own affiliate marketing course in Chinese for the Chinese market.
So, if you're not getting my reply as fast as before, these are the reasons. Thank you for your understanding. Just know that I still care about you.
If you have urgent questions or inquiry that need my immeidate attention, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is only for very urgent questions. Please fully utilize this awesome community here we have at Wealthy Affiliate. You should be able to get answers to most of your questions unless it's a personal inquiry that needs my immediate attention.
What I have learnt recently...
As always, I want to provide value for you.
There are 2 very important things I learnt recently...
#1 A Much Better Time Management
Here's a very common scenario...
When there's a new message or notification, be it here at WA, or on your social media, you'll stop what you're working on and check that message/notification. That's where you'll most likely to get distracted.
I used to do that as well. Whenever I received a message, I feel a sense of "responsibility" to quicky reply or help that person.
But you're actually wasting a lot of time going back and forth between your work and your notifications.
I figured that out because of the overwhelming messages I'm getting as my business grows.
A much better way to do it is to put your phone and everything else to silent mode when you're working. Don't bother about anything unless there's something urgent or needs your immediate attention.
Set aside some time every morning or every night, depending on your own schedule or preference, to check your notifications and reply your messages.
In other words, FOCUS is still the most important thing.
Like I've said, I used to spend some time everyday to reply all my messages. But because there are really too many of them, I can't reply all by the end of the day. That's why I'm not so responsive recently.
I'm still finding a balance and trying to figure out a way. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
#2 Having a small group of raving fans is very important!
No matter what you're doing, focus on creating that small group of people who trust you and are interested in whatever you're doing/sharing/promoting...
I'm currently in the process of creating a course like I've mentioned. What happened was that because of the interview I had recently and all my marketing efforts, I'm now growing a small group of raving fans who are very interested about my course.
What's even better is that there are people who were asking me about how much will my course be because they want to put aside that money first and wait for my course. This happened when I haven't even started creating the course. I just got started planning.
That's called a small group of raving fans!
They are already "SOLD" when I haven't even started selling anything to them.
Regardless of your niche/business, I believe there's a way to build a small group of raving fans.
That's all for my sharing today and I hope this is helpful to you!
Once again, thanks for your understanding if you're waiting for my reply😅
