When you’re building an online business it’s easy to fall in the habit of skipping a few days here or a few days there …
Before you know it, weeks and months have gone by…and so has your dream of building a business – that dream to give you more time with your family or the ability to travel the world or retire comfortably, or whatever your motive is.
Even when your blog is bringing in money it’s easy to get derailed. I found myself this year losing my focus and questioning my ability to make this blog my 6 figure business many times.
But I have an excuse …
I got married 🙂
Yes this is my excuse, and this is me with my wife Adriana on our honeymoon in Positano, Italy.
So now I’m back and it’s time to re-commit.
In the past I was posting to this blog roughly twice a week….slowly build up momentum.
Now it’s time to recommit, power up and crank out 5 posts a week. (for starters)
I’m not going to do this straight away but build up as fast as I can. And at least of 2 of these posts are going to be video posts!
I know a lot of you are not going to want to do video posts but it is vital to your success.
Up until about 2012 you could send people like sheep to a sales page and a good number of them would buy.
But not now the tide has turned for good. I hear stories all time from people saying
“I bought 2000 clicks and sent them to my sales page and only 2 people bought”
Today you’ve got to be social and provide a user experience – aka “Oh no I have to come out from behind the computer”
So let me now lay out a high level plan to show you what I’ll be following in the next six months and what you can do too.
> I will read and listen to business and self-development books, podcasts, blogs and courses.
> Produce 5 pieces of content per week (at least 2 video). SEO optimized if possible.
> Tweet the content and post to my Facebook group.
Post videos to YouTube.
> Reach out to other bloggers in my niche for connections.
> Be active in forums.
My main aim is to solidify my role as a trusted adviser, and increase my optin rate and the traffic to my blog to 10,000 unique visitors a month.
