When you are just starting out, it is very easy to get discouraged and feel that nobody is looking at your stuff. And – I know – every Tom, Dick and Harry has their ideas of what you should do.
Why do the big guys – and ladies – get all the views? Hmmm. Let’s look at a couple of things:
1) The “gurus” have been at it longer and just have more content out there
2) They KNOW they are “THE Dude”
Circumstances are as circumstances are. That is all. There are things out there you can do nothing about.
Someone out on the internet with consistent content for a longer period of time than you is something you cannot go back and change. Now get over it.
You can, however, do something today! Start consistently putting out your content. Google likes consistency. Set a schedule, line it out on a calendar, and stick to it.
If your schedule does not allow you time on a certain day to post on your blog, go ahead and prepare your content, then use WordPress Editorial Calendar to keep you on task.
Just think! Daily writing – and publishing – a piece of content for 90 days puts 90 pieces of your content out on the internet. How many do you have today?
Now you start to stretch and multiply those pieces of content. Easy Peasy.
Once the content is originally written, you can then extend the life of the piece by refreshing it into other forms such as video, audio, blog post, twitter messages, etc. More on that later.
Now on to KNOWING you are THE DUDE!
Mindset comes before motivation in more than the dictionary.
What is your mission?
What is your cause?
Why are you even out there on the internet?
Who are you looking to help – and what are you able to help them with?
If you don’t know – convey that – send out the energy from the tips of your fingers in every word – your audience cannot possibly relate, respond, or will ever even look for you.
Remember, people don’t go looking for you because you have something to say.
People go looking for information – for answers to their questions.
Do you KNOW in your gut – down in the pit of your stomach – you have something that can release others from the shackles holding them hostage?
What kept you up at night, wondering how to solve your problem, crying when nobody else was looking (you hoped), that lead you to the answers you feel the need to share?
You HAVE to know you are THE DUDE with the answers!
Now! Go out there with your 90 Day Plan — Knowing your target audience is looking for your answers.
And on a consistent action plan, attract your target market and give them the answers they are looking for.
I’ve whopped you kinda hard this time. I hope you know that is how much I care.
I am here to help. Just call or drop me a line.
