✅Pick a niche & Select the product/service within
The biggest mistake I made when I first started my business was the “shining object syndrome (SOS)”, a form of distraction. I picked one business, ran it for a while, and one day found another business that seems can get me more profit and I stopped the first one and then start the second one. And same for the third, fourth, and the fifth one. My results finally started to show after I focus on this one.
Focus and do the one thing at a time. You’ll be amazed by the compound effect you created. Scale up or expand to new business only if your current one has functioned well and you can outsource some works and leverage your time and money to the utmost.
✅✅Plan the Strategy & Create valuable contents
Get to know who you really are first. Now you probably have 100 question marks in your head wondering what am I talking about. Seriously, you need to know what do you feel comfortable with when putting yourself out there for audiences.
Are you a written word person? Audio person? Or you’re really comfortable talking in front of camera? Think carefully what makes you feel the most comfortable when you’re sharing values and knowledge to your audiences.
Pick one and get familiar about the situation at the time you decide to start. For instance, Personal blogging websites, LinkedIn, Medium, etc. if you’re a writer. More like a video person? Youtube, facebook, Instagram, etc. Suck at writing, not comfortable in front of camera, and are pretty sure you’re an audio person? Podcast, Anchor, Alexa Briefing, etc.
Decide and then start massively create contents.
✅✅✅Build relationship & Create leads/emails list
Why this is so important? According to Campaign Monitor, that brings you 4,400% ROI. Meaning you earn $44 USD by spending $1USD. You earn $44,000 USD by spending $1,000USD.
If you already got the email address coming from people who are interested in your contents, products or service. Why not taking one more step forward and leverage what you have and get you closer to reach the 4,400% ROI?
Start accumulating your email list and build relationship with your leads. A great way that works really well is providing free values way often then promoting your products or service. Build the relationship first. 100 people who trust you is better than 1000 people that’s interested in your contents.
