One Website at a Time - Baby Steps Remember.

Last Update: September 13, 2015

Lets begin!

Just Pace YOURSELF!

If you're just beginning with your website development...why rush through everything?! Why take big steps early in the game? Think about it (Rome wasn't built in a day)! Your training videos aren't going anywhere! Your success isn't going anywhere (especially because you decided to go for a 10 min walk with a few friends)! I mean lets be reasonable. Just think about for a minute!

"...If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over...?"

- John Wooden

1 Website...1 Business:

So you're probably thinking that even though you've created (or you're in the processing) an online business that everything would be smooth sailing after that huh? Well...not necessarily! Let's try an exercise for a sec to prove this. What does a brick and mortar business and online business have in common? Did you get it? You did! Great! And you're right...it's the word business, because that is what they both are - businesses.

===> As with everything, even a business too requires time input (proper time management is everything).

5 Websites...5 Businesses:

With a little inspiration here and there, you've almost finished creating one website (business). But, due to your new found condition, "excitement syndrome", you want to move on to creating another website. Right? Well...to that effect I say >>> Stop right there! You see, here is where the problem comes in. If you are a newbie, then staying extremely focused on one task at a time is very important, especially when one can be easily distracted by all the bells and whistles around you (success stories of others, achievements etc).

But, if you're a seasoned veteran then you may not experience too many difficulties here, if any at all.

===> One website requires a lot of attention and mentoring. So, don't be in so much of a hurry to create 3, 4, 5 or 6, when you haven't even completed one. More details below in social media...

Marketing Strategies:

(Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+...etc.)

Headache, headache, headache and more headache!!! Yep, that's what it would lead to, especially if you didn't have a solid strategy in place from day one.

What do I mean by that? To answer that question. Let's start here - with what we do know! What we do know is this, regardless of the ability to leverage this medium or not, social media offers huge benefits to any one business - whether from customer loyalty to encouraging profitability.

The down side however, is that social media requires A LOT of attention. If you are a loner in your business without any addition parties offering any assistance, then the mentoring aspect of your business where social media is concerned can become a difficult task.

Now, suppose you magnified this by 3 or 4 additional websites that you want to create. Then, this itself would be a headache indeed. Therefore, remember to think carefully about what you're doing before you do it. Train eagerly, but implement what you've learned steadily and properly. Slow and easy does it! So go at your own pace, creating and accomplishing ONE TASK AT A TIME.

Destination Ahead!!!

Sure, you will reach your destination. But, is it not important too how you get there?

Key: "...Everything in life should be made simpler in life, not simple..."

- Albert Einstein

Lesson: Focus on one thing at a time - sticking to your task at hand! Stay organized (don't be in a hurry to rush down the pathway to nowhere, as this too is a destination)! Remember always to go at your own pace, learning the essentials necessary to operate a successful online business. If you can't manage one(1) business plus with the ups and downs that come with it, how will you manage or run ten(10) efficiently? Think about it!

Hey Keane,
I entered into WA already possessing 2 websites with no real clue on how to manage them. The first thing I had to do once I joined WA was to decide which one to focus on....it's been very difficult, yet I still moving ahead but not at the fast pace I had envisioned.

I've come to terms with not putting pressure on myself )
It's not a race...but a journey.

You have given great advice!

Excellent article. I just mentioned in my first blog how I have struggled with time management for the past few years. To solve the problem I have chosen to learn the very crucial basics of how to reach my market through the step by step training offered here at WA. And I intend to pursue it methodically and thoroughly. There is so much to learn from not only the lessons, but from all the articles and tips offered by other members like you. Thanks.

Thanks, Keane, some great advice here I have had my domain for a while on here now. I don't know if I should jump in training, then some site building, then back into training again to fix my mistakes and add more content. Maybe start with affiliate Bootcamp to get things on a faster track, so much to learn! LOL

Best...

I will be reading your other blogs

Sooooo true! I know from experience the reality of making all of these mistakes. I quit for a long time, leaving neglected blogs.

Now I've had to focus my attention on one website, but the downside is the others are in a state of neglect. I am basically starting again as a newbie marketer since recently joining WA.

Please follow this advice.

Thanks Keane!

Sound advice for any business plan, especially one involved online.

It's amazing what can be accomplished with the right drive and effort. Dividing your focus among many different businesses can result in less success, and you could find yourself in over your head, not yielding the results you expect, which can take a direct effect on your motivation.

Thanks for the post, Keane. Good luck to you! :)

Keane - this is excellent advice, both for newbies and seasoned marketers. In our excitement, we often forget 1) we are here to build a "niche" and build a reputation for being an expert at that niche, so how can that happen if our focus is spread all over the place and 2) We are here to build a business, so let's not forget that basic business fundamentals apply, whether we are online or tending to our bricks and mortar business. Thanks for this excellent reminder and the inspiring quotes!

Thanks Lou. I really appreciate your kind words. Thanks for gracing my page with your presence... And yes, I agree with you - when starting out here (even for me it was easy to get caught up and distracted by the bells and whistle), it is easy to get lost.

Therefore, it is important to stay focused on the task at hand...ensuring to accomplish one thing at a time (once done a successful business will be a grasp away)...

Keep shining brightly as always...
we need your light,
Keane:-)

You're most welcome Hosanna. Thanks for the compliment by the way:) And yeah, you have to be organized here, as it is especially important for your business. Thing is...rushing through training to create a website because of the eagerness to achieve an income will only lead down the road to nowhere if you aren't pacing yourself...

This is true... I am a newbie and I most definitely suffer from "excitement syndrome". I have at least 3 more website ideas that I cannot wait to get started on, but I am having enough trouble just getting my first one making money. So I think once I start to see a "regular" income, with "regular" posting on my part, good google rankings and steady, regular visitors, then it will be time to make another site... but not now.
Reply
Keane Premium
Yep. Well said Alexander! That's exactly the point that I was trying to bring across. You can certainly make $10,000,000 from 10 websites. Because as the saying goes: "...If you do not first believe in self, then you are twice defeated in the race of life..."

Start with baby steps 1st...then, if you want to fly later just go right ahead!

I can't stress enough how helpful it was for me to focus on 1 site for the first year. You're going to do a lot of "bonehead" things in the first year. That's just the way it is.
Get em out of the way on the first site and the second site is done right from the beginning and comes together so much faster.
If I had tried to build 2 sites early on, I would have 2 hot messes on my hands now. Waiting is so worth it. Great post my friend:)
