How to grow in business online – be disciplined
If you wonder how to grow in business online, it’s important that you are disciplined in your approach and most of all consistent.
One of the first things you need to do is to plan a daily routine and stick to it. Write down your plan, put it front of you and take action every day. It doesn’t matter what marketing system you want to adopt to generate leads, whether you use paid marketing techniques or free or a mixture of both, a daily plan is vital to progress.
This is where self discipline comes to the forefront of the strategy and the mindset you need to adopt to work towards your success. If you are disciplined in your approach and are consistent in your actions, you are more likely to see success because your content will be noticed and you will get people to want to know you more.
You can use social networking, such as Twitter and Facebook, but remember that you still need this discipline and consistency to progress and generate targeted leads for you to build a relationship with. One thing to remember in these cases is to lead with value and provide valuable information. Don’t just wade in with a pitch to join you in your business. A lot of the time you will be ignored and blocked. It’s much better to provide value and get to know the person you want to connect with by asking questions and building rapport with them on a personal level and build trust. You can ask pertinent questions that lead to you finding out what type of help they may need or what solution you have for their problems. This will generally lead to a better relationship and a better chance of them joining you in your business or becoming your customer.
Discipline and Consistency = Growth
If you carry out your daily routine no matter where you are, how you feel or whatever you have to do then your success will be quicker. Don’t think that there is not hard work required – nothing comes to those who wait. Every business, on or offline requires effort to be successful. The main difference between offline business to online is that you can put in anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours daily concentrated effort into your online business based on your plan to create a growing online presence. Traditional offline business takes a lot more time and concentrated effort over a longer period to achieve what is possible online.
Discipline and consistency will help you to succeed. Don’t expect to get rich quickly, but you can expect riches over time. It’s wholly possible to replace your income and earn a full time income online without being “rich” as you may perceive the meaning of rich. Where you are rich in this instance is that you have more freedom. You have freedom to spend more time with your family and do things that others in a regular job never have time to do.
Discipline and consistency carrying out your daily plan will lead to such rewards for you. Yes, some do achieve wonderful success and riches quickly, but these people are driven and have been lucky in some ways to have been “in the right place at the right time” to quote the old cliché. They have one thing in common with the theme of this article though, they are all disciplined in their approach and consistent in their work towards the success they now enjoy.
