https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_08_27_6-tips-for-success-online_

The fact that you’re reading this blog post say’s a lot about your character. You’re someone whose willing to do the leg work to get to where you want to be online and I can respect you for that.

Before I unload this amazing list of extremely helpful tips on you, I want you to know and remember something important. Whenever you’re feeling like you can’t succeed digitally please remember this next paragraph…

It is 2018, exactly 20 years ago the world wide web was created and it has advanced into the most powerful tool in the world today. There is NO reason why you should not become successful online. All of the tools for you to succeed exist (& here’s a secret, if you’re willing to dig around long enough, you can find all the tools online for FREE. Anything that anyone is selling online is out there for free if you’re willing to look hard enough for it.) 

Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s jump right into these MAJOR tips for your success online:

Have a Purpose

You may not know what your purpose in life is, but as an online business owner what you should know for sure is the purpose of your website/blog. I cannot stress this enough which is why it’s number one on the list.

If you don’t know the purpose of your website/blog and you start to build your audience, it is very likely that majority of the content you present to them wont be tailored specifically for them. If this is the case, your engagement will suffer.

I highly suggest finding the purpose of your website/blog first and the rest will follow.

Have a Strategy

All of the top dogs have a clear strategy. I personally suffered with this for half a year when I first started UYS. Everyday, I would just wake up and wing it and eventually I found myself getting frustrated. I would sit in front of the computer for hours completely uninspired.

With a bomb strategy in place, you hit the ground running! Every single day, I know exactly what I should be working on.

You’ll be much more productive with a strategy than without one.

This is the #1 thing majority of suffering online entrepreneurs are missing. VALUABLE CONSISTENT CONTENT! (I myself still struggle with being consistent from time to time.)

They focus on the sale more often then the value of the actual content.

Have you ever came across an extremely boring looking blog or site and the owner is making a full-time income off their business? I can guarantee you 100% that the content they’re producing is valuable and consistent.

Focus on the value and consistency of your content and the funds will follow.

Most entrepreneurs gain fast success online by being present every-single-day! Remind your audience everyday that you’re still here rooting for them and to help.

Have a Marketing Strategy

This may seem like a no brainer to some, but a lot of digital entrepreneurs (especially beginners) don’t have any kind of marketing strategy in place and even worse, they’re not using SEO. 

If you’re someone who has yet to put a marketing strategy in place, I highly encourage you to check out the the Free Sales & Growth Training. It is short, sweet, and to the point. (I myself have used the exact tips in this training to start blogging full-time.)

Focus on the Numbers

Most people don’t like numbers, I used to be like most people until I learned something really cool about numbers that I’m going to share with you today…

If you start to like numbers, they’ll start to like you back. I hated dealing with numbers all the way up until I built UYS. If I wanted UYS to be successful I needed to focus on the facts and there’s no easier way to do that than focusing on analytics.

It doesn’t matter how many platforms you’re using to run your digital business, you need track your analytics to see how you’re doing daily, weekly, and on a monthly basis. The numbers don’t lie!

Educate Yourself

This is another one that some may think is a no brainer but it’s actually pretty common for online entrepreneurs to give up after the 6 month mark. One of the main reasons is because there’s no more inspiration or creativity left.

When we come up with cool, new and creative idea’s, our brain is pulling it from something that we’ve already seen, read, or tried before.

If you’re not constantly exposing yourself to new cool things, your brain will run out of things to pull from. (In other words, the well will run dry.)

It is said that most successful business owners read about 40 books a year, and most successful bloggers read new articles weekly!

If you haven’t been educating yourself as much lately, I challenge you to learn something new related to your success online daily!

How To Turn Your Viewers Into Buyers

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_03_24_how-to-turn-viewers-into-buyers_Before I decided to create unlockingyoursuccess.online/ I owned two other websites. They both turned out to be a major fail. The vision was there, I knew exactly where I wanted my business to go and what I wanted it to do. However, I was missing one very important aspect, a marketing strategy.

When most people see the word marketing, they think of pushy advertisements, and numbers. Trust me when I say that I am not exempt, I was like most people.

I thought marketing would be hard, and expensive so I just didn’t do much of it. I shared my websites on social media a few times and that was it. (big mistake)

Now, I love finding new ways to market my business. No seriously, it’s my definition of fun.

In fact, I love it so much, I’m going to show you exactly how to market your business like a pro.

So, grab your pen and paper. (& possibly coffee) cause it’s going to be a long one.

Personalize your marketing strategy

I can’t even count on two hands how many times I’ve clicked on a great looking pin just to head over to their blog, and everything sounds robotic. Almost like, they’ve copied and pasted a script right off google.

You do not want that to be you, people will run from your website. It’s great to use guides as an example of how your marketing strategy should be, but you always want your readers to feel your personality.

Because your viewers can’t physically see you, there needs to be an indication that there’s actually a real person behind the screen that understands their problems and can actually help them. That indication is your personality. You can never have too much personality in your brand. It’s what makes your business stand out from all the copy-cats.

Spoon feed your viewers | Don’t be a salesman

One major mistake with my first two websites was that it was information overload. It was like I just kind of threw info products and prices at them as soon as they clicked on a link. I had a salesman mindset which came off as pushy. It wasn’t genuine, and my viewers could totally tell.

Treat your viewers as if they’re your babies (new born babies). They’re coming to your site for the first time, or reading your blog post for the first time so, this is all new to them. They’re hoping to learn something that they’ve never been taught before and they’re expecting you to teach it to them.

Here’s a check list that you should swear by:

1.) Build a relationship with your reader within the first few sentences. If you aren’t doing this, 9/10 of your readers are most likely clicking on to the next page without fully reading your content. They need to trust you. An example would be, “I want to help you because…..”

2.) After you’ve built rapport, jump right into the meat of your content. No fluff! I repeat, no fluff. It’s so annoying to read an entire blog post only to realize I didn’t actually take anything valuable away from it, and that it was all just a evil mind trick to get me to click on some pricey info product.

If you do this to your readers, they will most likely never read anything you post again. Which brings me to my next point…..

Give away a ton of free stuff

I know, it sounds crazy but trust me when I say this is a game changer.

There’s a ton of salesy people out there who will tell you “Put a price on everything.” Wrong!

Giving away valuable free content is the key to your success.

(And while I’m at it…Click here to check out this FREE roadmap on building a profitable blogging business.)

Not only will it drive an insane amount of traffic to your site, it will also build trust between you and your viewers. They may not buy the first time around but, after coming to your site for a while they’ll begin to trust that you’re not feeding them a bunch BS. So, when you do decide to present them with a sale, they’ll trust that their investment would help them out in the long run.

Give them proof

When it comes to buying a product or trying out something, nobody like to be first. I know, it’s tragic. Everyone want’s to know that someone else tried it out before them so they know it’s something they can trust.

How to give proof?

  • testimonials
  • analytics
  • reviews

This is not your show

It took me a while to realize that my website is not TheShannonShow.com. Yes, I’m running it but, it’s not about me even in the slightest. Unless you’re running a lifestyle blog (even then it’s tricky) nobody cares about your life. I know it’s sounds mean but it’s true.

Make your website all about them. What did they come to your site for? How can you help them?

Write everything as if you’re speaking directly to them face to face. As if it’s just you and your reader sitting down together for the first time.

Follow your visitors

I know, it sounds creepy right? But seriously, follow them!

When your visitors click off your site, that’s it they’re gone. There’s no way for you to keep in contact with them, like ever again.

Unless………….

You create opt ins for them. This way you will always be connected to them.

There is one major way to create opt ins for your visitors.

An email list. This is the most effective way!

And the last and most important thing is to make sure you place these opt-in EVERYWHERE!
