Or, Follow One Course Until Successful.
Distractions kill businesses and blogs. Fiddling with sidebars, widgets, plugins, and other temptations pulls your focus off your #1 priority – attracting readers and motivating them to take action. Your weekend assignment is to pick one strategy and make a commitment to FOCUS.
I’ve tested several excellent strategies on Pushing Social and client blogs, my favorites are:
- Create helpful content that entices readers to subscribe to your email list. Growing your email list is essential to long term success.
- Repackaging your content and distributing it on content hubs like iTunes, YouTube, Slideshare, and Scribd. Your content will entice readers to check out your blog and become regular readers.
- Using presell posts to transition readers into a “content funnel” that moves them from free content to paid products and services.
Pick a strategy and create your plan. Get as detailed as you can. Outline every element, and put due dates on a calendar. Decide how you will measure performance and execute.
Temptation to change course will arrive immediately. Ignore the distraction and keep to your course. Keep pounding away until you see success. Once you do, study the success and look for ways to double-down on it.
