8 Points To Keep In Mind When Striving For Online Success
I think there are probably more than 8 points to keep in mind when striving for online success but I thought I would keep it relatively concise, too many and eyes will start to glaze over if they haven't already.
I seem to have taken on board a lot of information of late, mainly in the form of videos, though I haven't watched them, just had the audio coming through my headphones whilst working on other things.
It's a good exercise, not sure what in though, to be writing whilst listening to something completely unrelated. (Currently listening to "I AM" Affirmations For Success, Wealth & Happiness)
So, this is the paraphrased and added to version of a short video by one of the many successful marketers I follow, in a haphazard kind of way.
1) Integrity- As C.S. Lewis once said: "Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching." Sums it up quite nicely methinks.
2) Say it how it is- People will appreciate that more than you know. Honesty together with integrity is a powerful combination.
3) Don't promote bad products- There are enough good ones out there without having to push the bad ones, no matter how appealing the remuneration might be. Remember, you are trying to build a long term business, so you want customers to come back time and time again.
4) Learn how to do 'marketing' properly and correctly. There is an endless supply of knowledge out there, use it.
5) Don't spam- Make sure that you are always providing value.
6) Be yourself- Bottom line, don't copy others, you're selling yourself short. You are unique.
7) "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is."- Once armed with knowledge and understanding, you will see these so-called 'opportunities' coming from a long way off.
8) Concentrate more on your journey and less on the money.- Take your time to build a solid foundation and the money will inevitably come.
There you have it, short and sweet. As previously stated, it's not comprehensive and I am sure you can think of other salient points but it's not a bad place to start.
As I was bouncing from video to video I did come across a most enlightening audio track. The chances are it's only me that didn't know this existed and that when I disclose the title you will all say "Can't believe you've not heard of that"
It was Earl Nightingale's 1956 spoken-word recording "The Strangest Secret in the World". If, you have half an hour to spare then I highly recommend listening to it. There is also a thirty-day challenge built into it which I am trying hard to adhere to.
My radar blipped when I heard the name, having heard part of it within the name of a well-known publishing house 'Nightingale-Conant' of which I have a number of their recorded works. I enjoy finding things like this, it's like you were meant to uncover them.
In other news, I sold a car over the weekend, which was nice. Well, I say that but in all honesty, I no longer enjoy the experience, too 'stressy' for my liking, especially when the buyer has a three and a half-hour drive home.
More pieces of the puzzle are both appearing and falling into place, which is both exciting and at the same time saddening, as the time I have to write and interact here is diminishing. There will be tough choices to be made in the coming weeks as the annual subscription date draws near.
Well now, time's up. Thank you for taking the time to read my offering and I hope that your week is shaping up to be spectacular, I know mine is. Stay safe.
