WHAT ARE YOUR THREE THINGS?
Admit it, you can’t take advantage of every strategy, every opportunity, every system.
You must settle on a product or service you’re going to offer, determine how you’re going to market it, and take action.
You need to commit to doing something every day toward your goal.
I have settled on THREE things I do daily in my business to move the ball down the field.
They are not exactly the same every day, but they are consistent. Here are today’s:
1) Write public article for posting in a) 39 Day Challenge Series; b) Infoproreview blog; c) FB Marketing Group; d) LinkedIn, G+, etc…
2) Perform marketing activity for my own products/services (this rotates and could either be working on paid FB advertising–as I did yesterday, coordinating with another website owner or list owner for an ad swap to our lists, contacting JVs to promote my product, etc…)
3) Review a product and post affiliate links via Youtube and/orInfoProReview.com.
This is not to say that I don’t do anything else. Sure I add things to this list. I may research a new technique, or work on a new landing page, or even strategize about a new product I want to launch.
Now, in order to get to these three things, I had to build an entire infrastructure. I had to build websites, lead capture pages, get an e-mail list set up, create a membership site. Create a system for creating videos quickly. Develop a system to get a sales page up quickly.
I had to learn how to integrate all of this stuff. To get to the point where I have just three things to do daily took awhile.
Maybe a year ago, my list was like my 20 things to do…it was a yellow legal pad with an infinite checklist of things to do. So, don’t be discouraged if you’re not there yet, but I’ll still ask you…
WHAT ARE YOUR THREE THINGS?
OR…What do you WANT your three things to be?
Think about this.
If you’re building an online business, consistency is the key. When you’re first starting out, you’re not going to be a John Thornhill or Alex Jeffreys. Well, you might be like them in their early days, starting out in your bedroom or kitchen table, working your regular job, then pouring every waking moment outside your day job into your business, learning the necessary skills as you go.
Success is not immediate in any endeavor. You have to put in the sweat to build “sweat equity.”
Your first product may bomb. Your first attempts at advertising your product will probably bring dismal results. You may invest in courses to learn critical skills. You may come out more dazed and confused than ever with more questions than answers. You may get so frustrated you want to scream or throw your computer through the window.
Getting through those times are what will get you over the hurdle and get you to your first pay check.
