Dirty Work, Dirty Word People Don’t Like

Dirty Work

Dirty Work

Over the years I’ve spoken to so many people that want to build a business and become financially free.Yet there is always this one thing that sticks out and strikes me as odd.

See, there are so many people who crave and want success.

They want…

…the dream house…

…the expensive very cool car…

…the freedom to travel where they want, when they want…

…and say almost everytime they want to be their own boss.

However, the big mystery is most really don’t want to do what it takes and put in the dirty work, you know that elbow grease stuff with the determination and drive to succeed no matter what it takes to live a life that only some dream about.

For so many, “work” is a dirty 4-letter word, dirty work.  Isn’t that weird though because you are working somewhere for someone to pay the bills, keep a roof over the head of your family, and food on the table.

So again, people learn a new strategy and get fired up about it, but yet do nothing about it with any action in the learn, follow, and do process.

It will always be the same No Action, No Results without the dirty work up front to set yourself and family up for life.

There’s a famous quote that goes something like this…

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”

If you’re not making the money you want…

If you still can’t quit your job…

If you’re wondering when you’ll be debt free…

If you’re eager to fire your boss…

Just know this:

It’s worth it.  The DIRTY WORK up front is definitely worth it!

The late hours. The dedication you put in after work. The uncertainty.

In the end, the reward is far greater.

And that’s what’s so odd.

Too many people don’t want to spend a few years working really hard so that they can retire early and enjoy life. (I mean that’s one of the big reasons we work in the first place, right?)

If you’ve hit a plateau or are not sure what action to take, just remember to stick to the plan you may have started in building a business.  Learn the ropes with patience and you’ll be glad you did.

Remember, work like no other today, so you can live like no other tomorrow.

Blogging as a Business and 10 Key Reasons

Blogging as a Business – 10 Key Reasons

Blogging as a Business

Blogging as a business is undoubtedly a very valuable option for many people and this is for alot of reasons. Think about it Blogging is not just for businesses. It can be beneficial for you personally, professionally, and financially. I am now writing and posting to my Blog which has become a great way to share what I may know, life stories, interests to me and more. I recommend blogging to almost everyone I meet and here are some of the reasons You should be blogging.

1. Audience Attraction

Blogging as a business enables you to reach the masses globally across the Internet. Blogging allows you to promote yourself and your business. Blogging provides the method to attract an audience which can become a targeted one because it provides something of value for the reader and may be meeting a need.

What would you rather click on, a page titled “How to Promote Your Blog”, or a page titled “Buy My Services”? By creating a blog that is of value, you will attract an audience with a higher potential to convert them into customers, business partners, friends, etc…

2. Establish Yourself as an Authority

Blogging and writing on key subjects or topics that are relevant to your target market or audience establish you as an authority within the space. It will improve you as a professional and a trust factor with others.

3. Build Audience Engagement and Gain Rapport

When you are Blogging as a business and draw your audience in based on sharing added value then you will have traffic and it will flow which turns an audience into leads and they may very well become business partners or customers. Blogging definitely keeps the engine running and kicks it in with traffic even from other sources. So stay steady in providing your added value in your posts.

4. Create Opportunity at Every Turn

Blogging will and can lead to other business opportunities. As an example, recognition and then maybe speaking engagements or press and never know what more may come from your presence and shared value across the Net. Blogging as a business is the enabler for you or anyone with something interesting or of value to share and then become identified as an expert within a given area.

5. Pull the Thoughts Together and Learn

When Blogging you will find it is going to drive you into teaching yourself in many things on what you don’t know and will force you into taking the time to express yourself on the things you do know. When you are completing a blog post, your mind will form up in some organized manner how to lay it all out so the reader will follow what you provide, be drawn in, and get the added value you intended. I am sure you will catch yourself with a few gaps in your subjects here and there and you will need to take the time to learn about it. Writing out and getting your point across with your thoughts is a great way to internalize something you’ve learned or experienced.

6. Bring out Your Story

Blogging as a business is going to allow you to be your own press release or trumpet. You can tell your story straight from the heart exactly the way you want it told and without being dependent on anyone else. Just be yourself and you will be your best. When you are writing on a topic of interest, you can decide how you want the story to be explained and what information is needed or not. Blogging allows you to verify before publishing if it is what you intended and are the facts or details covered for the audience.

7. New Horizons and New People

The audience you will attract through blogging may not be just be your “audience.” You will become connected with others that have ended up at your blog then they may become your friends, business partners, or who knows. On many occasions people have messaged me after reading a blog post and connected with me through Facebook and have become friends even business colleagues.

8. Work Hard to Stand Out

I hope you catch this part because it is very interesting. Only 1 percent of Internet users out here are actively creating new content, while the other 99 percent of the participants simply view it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1%25_rule_%28Internet_culture%29). By blogging as a business, you now have just separated yourself from the 99 percent of people that don’t blog. Remember, standing out is will be very important to make the difference you may want to make.

9. Expertise Verified

Blogs are quite like your resume. When you choose to blog about a topic you would like to be viewed as an authority or expert and you will need to demonstrate this to the readers and audience that you are knowledgeable in the area you have chosen.

10. Make Money Blogging as a Business

If you have a blog with a lot of readers and growing, there may be opportunities to monetize. So many Today are looking for that extra bit or way to make money so being diversified and having additional sources of income can work out in a great way for you. If you are working the day J.O.B. that doesn’t pay squat for the way you would like it to be, or if you would simply like to earn more income and build wealth then blogging can pave that way for you.

So you can wait around and be that 99 percent who just surf around and lurk or You can actually “Stand Out” and make a difference…

Increase Traffic with Info Products

Increase traffic with info products that you can either use as something FREE to give away or even sell online becomes very useful on creating traffic flow back to you and your business.

Increase Traffic

8 Quick Tips to Increase Traffic

Info products can drive and increase traffic to a website, but only if they possess the appropriate content and they are marketed properly.

Tip #1 Write about what you love. Write about what you know. Readers will better be able to appreciate the info products you have created if they can see that you have got at least a semblance of authority to write such works.

Tip #2 Write for the benefit of the readers. It is not enough to write something you are interested in. You must also write in such a way that will benefit your readers. If creating the info product has been a pleasure for you, that is good, but it is not enough to make readers want it. You need to have a specific goal in mind. You need to think of a way that will make the info product a benefit for your readers.

Tip #3 If the new things that you have to share is not enough to make up one info product then it is time to hit the public domain!

These refer to previously published works that you are legally allowed to use as many times as you wish and in any way you want. Works in the public domain can be great filler for your info product; they can provide excellent background data for the few new topics you have come up with. Of course, make sure that any work you do choose to borrow or include is indeed public domain. When in doubt, the US Copyright office can always help you out. Also, there are several websites which only offer public domain works, if you got your sources from these websites then there is no need for additional verification.

Tip #4 What happens if you have got wisdom to impart but no skills to put it on paper, You hire a ghostwriter. Don’t let your writing skills or lack of it hinder you from creating  to increase traffic generating info products. There are so many ghostwriters in the marketplace offering their services for competitive rates.  Choose any one of them and your plans for the Next Great American Info product is back on track.

Tip #5 They say that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this sensible advice is rarely heeded. Sure, people know it’s the content that matters, but they prefer to buy books which offer excellent content and equally excellent covers. Once you’re done creating your info product, you need to focus perfecting its marketing aspect: choose an attention-grabbing title as well as a visually appealing cover. Work diligently on the back cover teaser, too.

Tip #6 If possible, divide your content into several sections and make one info product out of each. If you release them one by one, you can guarantee a constant flow of traffic to your website. If that’s not possible then consider writing sequels or related works instead.

Tip #7 Choose the right price for your info products. Free is always best, but if you think you can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity to earn as well from your info products then do make sure you attach just the right price on your info products. More importantly, make it convenient for your readers to purchase your info products.

Tip #8 Spread the word in any way you know how. Post entries about your info products on your blog, create podcasts about it, post shoutouts on your social networking accounts, submit entries to social bookmarking sites. Simply put, don’t completely rely on search engines to do the marketing for your info products.

That wraps it up and please share and comment if you enjoyed this article with tips…

Setting Up an Online Video and Social Network Marketing Strategy

Setting up a video and social network marketing strategy is not that different from creating a marketing strategy in general.  However, too many it can seem very intimidating.  Like any basic strategy, you’ll need an objective, a focus on the audience, and a place to promote.

It won’t.  Once you understand who your target audience or avatar and where they hang out, you’ll have a much clearer idea of how and where to promote your video.
