Use Smart Goals for the Next 90 Days
When I first started my online business, my first goal was to focus on developing my email list and gain more subscribers. I provided a free opt-in (freebie) PDF of Brene Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfections book. You can also provide a free eBook, checklist, or free workbooks depending on your niche. This opt-in will give value to your potential customers.
Creating your freebie takes self-discipline. However, it also takes motivation and change to achieve your goals. You must hunker down and do what needs to be done, even when you don’t feel like it. Another skill is to stay visible for you audience. They are the ones who will support you at the end of the day.
Visibility and Consistency is Vital
Take full advantage of Facebook, answer questions, solve problems, get involved. Start a group of your own and invite your friends, associates, and subscribers to join. Post on multiple social channels consistently. Utilize Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn Daily, weekly or bi-weekly. Leave no stones unturned. Just be consistent. Go live on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok, or do Facebook and Instagram reels. Go all out. This is your time to shine. Invest in a dependable computer, tablet or desktop.
Podcasts, Webinars, and Masterclasses
Why not branch out as you expand your outreach. Consider podcasts, masterclasses, and host your own webinars. Stay in the limelight. Go for it. Just start with one or two platforms and build your network from the inside out as you get more comfortable with social media. Set up a Pinterest account and post regularly. Stay motivated.
