What you do first thing every day in your business online sets the tone for your success or lack there of. If you never listen to another thing I say, please pay attention to this…
What you do at the start of each business day will make or break you. Period.
As a soloperneur, your online home business success is solely dependent upon you. You will single-handedly make it or break it. You’re cringing while you read this, I can feel it. That’s OK, I still cringe at the responsibility sometimes.
Often we internet entrepreneurs get sidetracked. That’s one of the biggest obstacles to a successful business online. It’s so easy to catch Shiny Object Syndrome.
You find yourself in your inbox chasing shiny objects, great offers (in my case – WordPress plugin offers) and going down endless rabbit holes. You are forever doing busywork that needs to get done, but doesn’t necessarily make you any money. That seems to be one of the biggest problems for a solopreneur in business online – getting focused, staying focused and knowing what to do next, then doing it.
So what is that one magical thing? It’s really very simple Perhaps everything you did is necessary for business, but will anything you did result in actual cash?
What are the best things that you can do for your business right out of the gate each and every day. Before you check your email before you go on Facebook, before you tweet, or read your blog comments, or start fiddling around with your website you need to be sure that you do a money making task.
So what are those tasks?
Well, just to name a few:
- Setting up a webinar or Google Hangout which will build your list or can be made into a product
- Recording a podcast
- Researching, then in inviting potential webinar and podcast guests
- Writing an email to your list
- Writing a blog post
- Creating a new opt in and give away
- Writing a sales page
- Setting up a promotion
- Product creation
There are so many ways to get the ball rolling to help make the money come in, but we’re just to wrapped up in busywork, too worried about our email inboxes and who’s on Facebook. Those things don’t create income. Yes they are important and need your attention, but they are not actually what brings in the money. Do this for 90 days and you’ll be able look back at the progress you’ve made in your business.
I promise you will see a difference if you do this daily. I’m looking forward to hearing your stories and wish you much luck and prosperity. Now, go do that money making thing!
