Build SYSTEMS to Increase the Value of Your Online Business!
Have you ever found yourself doing the same thing over and over again?
When you are building an online business (or any business), you sometimes catch yourself repeating the same actions.
- Writing similar titles and sub-titles in your articles.
- Writing similar reviews over and over again.
- Adding the same "Like + Subscribe + Share" things to your YouTube video manually.
- Responding the same question 10 times.
- Responding similar emails 20 times.
- Etc. Etc. Etc.
When you are doing new things, you are usually learning fast.
But if you keep in on doing the same thing over and over again, you most likely don't learn anything new. You may also start feeling overwhlemed.
In addition, you may start limiting yourself from learning more advanced things and scaling your business.
That's why I recommend that you build systems. (I learned this concept originally from Patrick Bet-David on Valuetainment YouTube channel.)
Let me explain what does this mean and how you can apply it immediately to increase the value of your online business.
What Is a System?
System is a structure that simplifies the process of doing something.
Let me give you a few examples:
- A template for review articles on your website.
- Step-by-step instructions for a Virtual Assistant to do X task for you.
- List of answers to most commonly asked questions and instructions on how to use them.
- Instructions to explain how to create your YouTube thumbnails.
- Instructions to write an article to your website.
- Videos and texts for a new VA to publish posts on your Facebook page.
The ultimate goal of having a system is to help ANYONE to do the task that you desire without additional time from you.
=> Multiply yourself
That may take a lot of time and it's not even possible to multiply yourself 100% but that's the idea.
3 Benefits of Building Systems
The idea of systems is that you can do things faster and more effectively.
Instead of writing the same response to the exact same question 100 times, you can just create 1 perfect answer and send it to everyone who asks that questions.
So, first of all, building systems frees your own time. You may get more done in 1 hour than another person gets done in 5 hours who tries to do everything manually.
Second, to grow your business, sooner or later it's recommended that you outsource tasks to other people.
When you have built systems, outsourcing becomes easier and faster.
Let's say that you spend 10 hours educating someone to do the task as well as you do but after a while he leaves for some reason.
Then you need to find another person and then you educate him again for 10 hours.
But what if you would have built a system (for example, videos, texts and other instructions) that a new person goes through?
You only need to build the system once and then you can educate as many people with it as you want.
Third, your business becomes more organized and professional.
With whom would you do business with?
Person A who has organized list of processes that he does to build his business. Clear systems that help to get other people to do the same things for him, etc.
Person B who can perhaps tell you what he is doing. If he happens to remembers.
I guess the answer is obvious
As a result of all these factors, by building organized systems and instructions, you immediately increase the value of your business.
In addition, systems will help you to scale faster in the coming days, weeks, months and years.
I must mention that I still have a lot to learn about building systems and make more of them. However, I have already built some systems and that has ALWAYS given me great results so I will do it more and I HIGHLY recommend it to you as well.
Are you already building systems?
What have you built?
Have you created video instructions / Text instrucstions?
What kind of results did you get?

PS. One example of a simple System was my 10-step checklist that got me 100 first page rankings on Google.
However, in order to make that system better, I have made it much more detailed to myself later on.
