I have always been impressed with those webmasters and others on line who do such a great job of promoting their business.
If two more-or-less equally skilled persons start a business on the internet, how is it that one of them does great and the other fails?
They must have some secret weapon that I haven't discovered yet. At least that is what I used to think, but I was wrong.
Here are 5 characteristics with which I believe anyone can improve their promotional efforts. These are present in most all successful on line workers.
Basically, they have a plan that they use each week to approach the task of promotion of their business.
Something as simple as a checklist of tasks and activities for each day of the week.
A simple system that they use each day, and it keeps them on track...away for distractions.
I had a good friend who used to say, "Plan your work, and work your plan".
She was a very successful business woman that followed her own advice.
They have surveyed lot of on line methods and determined the ones they will use. Once they have selected those methods they stay with them.
They don't jump around each day or so looking for the "magic bullet" with which to promote.
Hard work and consistency are keys in the daily activities of the successful on line worker.
They aren't easily swayed by the latest email offer on line. Although they are open to new changes and software that can improve their efficiency.
They are not distracted to the point they lose momentum in their weekly checklist of activities and tasks.
I'll have to admit that email is a big distracter for me. If I would spend as much time promoting as I do with email, I would do a lot better job.
I think I see this attitude of wanting to share and be helpful to others in most all of the ones who have made it 'big" on line.
Reaching back and giving a hand to someone to help them up the hill seems to come easily to many of them.
I believe it was Zig Ziglar who said, "You can have anything you want as long as your willing to help others get what they want".
It's a good philosophy we might all adopt.
They believe in themselves and what they are selling. They know that their product or service is good and many will benefit from it.
They are never involved in anything that is shady, or illegal. They seem to make a great effort to select and promote legitimate items and services.
I respect that in them.
