Have you ever been so enthusiastic when starting a new venture to the point that you can’t wait to see the ‘positive’ results in the shortest possible time?
When I started my education in the Online Marketing business, instead of following the expert’s advice to do it methodically, I rushed through the training. As a result, I found myself overwhelmed, with lots of new concepts I had to grasp and to absorb. It was daunting. But, instead of quitting, I committed to finish what I began and to do it to my best of my ability.
I started all over again. This time I am following the training step by step, absorbing information and reinforcing what I learned by writing it down.
According to the experts, if we want to build a successful online business, we need to master the following six tips;
We all know that the critical element when starting a business is to have a clear WHY. In my case, I want to be self-sufficient by building a business that I am passionate about, one that allows me to choose my own hours, and work from anywhere in the world. A business that enables me to live a lifestyle of time freedom to enjoy with my loved ones.
The requirements to start an online marketing business are to have basic computer skills, know the way around the internet browser and an understanding of the internet, that is the easy part.
However, we are told time and time again that to build a successful business, we need to master the following essential attributes:
1. Develop the Right Mental Attitude: This is very important. Maintaining a positive mental attitude will guide you to enhance the efficiency of your business.
We attract into our lives whatever we focus on; it is called the Law of Attraction. The thoughts and beliefs you have, positive or negative, will eventually manifest in your reality. Focusing only on what you want, will enhance your life and business.
2. Self-discipline is vital for success. It nurtures your inner strength and self-assurance. It is one characteristic needed to pursue your dreams successfully.
3. Patience. To create a personal brand, to build trust, to cultivate a loyal relationship with those who are willing to interact with your business, takes time and conscious effort to master.
4. Focus. The ability to pay close attention to what is on hand. Focusing on the one thing at the time is essential for your marketing efforts.
5. A burning desire to succeed. Find your WHY because obstacles are part of the growing process. Always be aware of your purpose of building your business and cultivate your desire to be successful in your endeavour.
6. Identify a Need. Once you have the product/service/item that your target market needs, it is up to you to market it in such a way that people who need it hear about what you are offering.
Your job is to make the buying experience pleasant by giving them great information, going the extra mile, making it fun and easy for them, build rapport and then they will have the confidence to buy it from you. That is the Science of Marketing. It sounds straightforward but not many businesses apply it
The continuous application of mastering the essential attributes and identifying a need with the product or service to fill that need is a sure way to a successful business.
