Every business, whether it’s just starting out or an established industry Goliath, the proprietors all began with a single thought form. A glimmer of hope, a single idea, a vision, which was infused with drive and passion.
The biggest leaders of commerce, all began with nothing but a momentarily flash of genius. They took this belief and infused it with courage to take action and created something.
Most began humble, usually with nothing but their sweat and determination, originally wondering what to do with their life.
They depended on their devotion, what they loved to do, what made them the happiest, choosing what they wanted to pursue as an occupation, this on their own terms.
With persistence, a bit of luck and good timing, perhaps finding a mentor or two, they dedicated to pour themselves through learning everything they can.
They burned the midnight oil with elbow grease and one focus in mind. They just went for it.
They never forgot their roots, they take one step forward at a time, taking the ascension by getting a little better today than yesterday.
Then they reached a point, a crescendo where their skills and passions intersected, while adding value to themselves and the lives of others.
To Be Of Service
These winners aim to please, to provide whatever service they can to help others. They like to solve problems, to make life easier for everyone, this by pursuing what they’re interested and passionate about.
They began building a business, a personal and corporate brand, a mission statement.
They begin attending networking events spreading their intentions, constantly evolving themselves along the way.
The plan is never perfect as it’s a work in progress.
It’s their passion and strength, the resistance they have, this by getting up again and again once they fail, while adding what they learned to their ideal business.
They realize that it?s not just about the money that drives their passion as an entrepreneur, it’s also about living a fulfilled life.
To Discover Your Passion
You need to discover your passion, so make sure you find what you love to do first, and then dedicate yourself to pursue it.
Think about what it was that excited you as a child, those activities which stole your time and space. The times that you became lost in the moment, and began to go with the flow.
The times when you were the happiest, this when you loved what you were doing, for this is your passion in life.
Realize your occupation is going to be the biggest part of your adult life, and the only way to be happy is to do what you love to do. Believe that what you’re doing is your greatest work.
The only way to achieve this is by becoming passionate in what you do.
Once you find out what you’re good at, found your destiny, then there are steps to take, this when starting your online business from the ground up.
Researching Your Market
You need to research deeper than what your competition is or has currently done. You need to dissect what your competition knows.
You need to research and analyze further, to dive headfirst into your market, this from the viewpoint of your ideal customer.
Begin by searching for the “buyer” keywords which are relevant to your industry.
If the keywords appear saturated don?t get discouraged, for this is a sign that the niche is needed and it’s working for others.
This means it can work for you as well.
Establish Financial Goals
Crunch your numbers hard and do so on a monthly basis. Then macro analyze them every three then six months, constantly stretching and improving on your initial targets.
Calculate backwards to find what you need to earn, and what you need to do on a daily basis to reach where you want to be.
Set goals which may be beyond your current capabilities, and then find ways on what you need to do everyday, to reach and then surpass them.
Create Sharable Content On Your Blog
What’s easy to do is reference or curate information from the leaders of your industry. But if you’re wanting to establish your own brand, what you need is to create your own content.
This content needs to be informative, unique and relevant, which addresses all the questions, the aches, the pain and the hunger of your buying customers.
You need superior information they want to read and apply, share with others and make a purchase.
Build An Email List
Email was one of the original concepts of electronic communication when the Internet was first conceived. It’s just as important today, as it remains the best form of online information delivery and communication.
So diligently collect and build a targeted email list, as it will prove to be your most valuable marketing weapon when building a business.
Start by building a better blog that converts, and then collect emails from those who wants more information.
You can do so by adding in an opt-in form on your site, then find a way to store this email list.
Use one of the various proven online email collection services, and then market strictly and regularly to that list.
Launch A Product Or Service
To reach your financial goals you set out, what you need is something to market. Do the research necessary to find out what the biggest challenges are that your immediate buying customers face.
Find out their biggest fear, what terror they’re currently facing and then create a solution for them.
Build a relationship with them around their issues, and then prove to them you can solve these problems effectively.
This is easier said than done, but it?s a key critical step.
Your warmest buyers will come from your email list. Your task is to convert them into buyers, this by building a product or service, or by becoming an affiliate marketer.
Start Right Now Improve Later
Where most handicap themselves is wasting their time thinking about making every step of their business perfect, this before they even launch it. This includes the site, copy, and capital.
Most procrastinate and fail to take action. They find ways and excuses on what won’t work rather than diving headfirst and solving the issues once they arise.
So make sure you focus on the process, follow it and expect to make mistakes, knowing that things in life are never perfect.
Every successful business is constantly tweaking to make improvements, to get better so it’s an universal issue.
So start small, test, find out what works and always be adjusting without getting discouraged.
Continue to tweak, launch and relaunch your efforts, this by trading time for dollars.
What’s the most important is following the process, knowing it’s more important to take action, rather than trying to be perfect.
Start today because if you don’t, when will you start?
