A-Z Blog Challenge Day 21: U Are the Key To Success

Posted by Cindy on April 25, 2013 at 4:13 am

U Are The Key To Success

Yes you are the key to success in your own online enterprise. We cannot spell success without ‘U’.

Very often, we think that we need this gadget, this tool, and this new piece of information before we can make it online. And we wait till we have all the pieces of information before we begin to take action.

However, nothing is further from the truth. In order to succeed online, you need to to take action instead of waiting for everything to be right.

In fact the Number 1 reason why most people fail online is :Information overload. They are overloaded with non essential information and that is stopping them from achieving their online goals.

Here’ what you need to utilize in order to succeed online.

1Utilize what you have

Scan through your hard disk. See what content you have save or written before and list all these out. Next find out what software you already own and make a list of it. Use these resources first before you purchase anything. If you find any PLR or private label rights content, you can edit it and start sprucing up your blog or set a regular schedule to start posting new content on your blog.

Alternatively, if you have a mailing list, you can also share these information with your subscribers. To more you give, the more you receive.

2Utilize your skills

Everytime, I find myself procrastinating on my goals, I start to create a list that looks something like this

What I Have What I Need
Content on Online Business website
Subscriber list Squeeze page
Traffic methods More subscribers
Blog Payment gateway
Graphicsx 25  
Online friends  
Ebooks and resources  

I list down the things that I have and the things that I need in order to succeed then I get to work on those things that I do not have. If I do not have the skills needed for the things that I lack, then I have a plan to outsource the things that I need to get done.

You can also utilize your skills, if you have writing skills, you can barter with someone with design skills to get your website done. Once you are clear on the skills that you have, you can barter for things that you need online especially if you are starting online.

3Utilize your resources

What resources do you have hiding inside you, your hard disk or your computer?

List the resources that you own that can help you advance your online business.

If you have an excess of stuff lying around in the house, you can convert these into resources by selling them away for money so you can fund your other research or purchases.

4Utilize Your Network

Who do you know who has the skills to help you in your online business? Do you have friends who are excellent writers and who can write a 500-word article without breaking a sweat?

Do you have friends who are very tech savvy who can help you set up web pages or a payment gateway for your products?

These are the people you need to speak to and solicit their help in order to succeed online. Or have you purchased products from another online Guru. Do you think you may have skills or products that you can joint venture with them for a launch?

In Day 21 of the A-Z Blog Challenge,  I hope you will utilize your skills, resources and network before you call it quits in your online business. If you want to put all these together and get started on your own online business or have a location independent business, this is an e-course which you may want to check out. Remote Lifestyle
