I've been doing some research lately, trying to find non-obvious marketing tactics and see how I can apply them to my business. Compiling this post took a lot of work, but I'm happy to finally share it with you today.
I don't usually repost stuff. Actually, I never repost stuff. But there's this one short article I stumbled upon at Business Insider that hit a complete home run with me and I knew I had to share it with you guys. The article's so true. It's so accurate. It's so relevant to anyone who's doing anything that can be considered "business."
I decided to follow up on the topic of spam and point out some specific types of unwanted email that we're attacked with on a daily (again, that's daily) basis. I'm publishing this list as a kind of a strange resource just to keep us on our toes when going through our inboxes.
Now, the most important question here is this: What's in it for you and how can you learn from my unfortunate mistakes? Here are the things I'm about to discuss: Why I think that writing a 100% personal blog is very unlikely to stand the test of time. How to find out if you're heading towards failure or not. How to launch a personal blog better. When is a good time to pull the plug on such a site.
Here's a question for today: Are you in a situation where you're waiting for an audience that isn't there? Or providing a product that's simply not attractive to an existing audience? And even if that's the case, how do you find out?
It's funny how easy it is to mess up something that you've been building for months or even years. Although maybe funny is not the word I'm looking for... Peculiar - that's the one! Anyway, today it's all about taking a broader look at our businesses and our personal behavior as online entrepreneurs. All this so we don't have to witness our efforts go down the drain one day.
Not every day is mighty productive ... I'm sure you can relate to this. Sometimes you just don't feel like doing anything valuable even though you know you should. Being able to come to work with the same amount of productivity in you every day is next to impossible...
