Every morning the earth turns and night becomes day. As sure as that is we have to get up and tend to our web sites. If you had a brick and mortar store you would not expect anyone to buy anything from you if you did not open your doors. It is the same with your web site. If you don’t open the door and put out the sign that says “OPEN” no one is going to find you.
Are not doing everything you can to make it work. Are not putting in 100%. These are questions that we have to answer for our-self’s. We are the only ones that know if we are putting in a 100%. Honestly it is not anyone else’s job to tell us. If our business is struggling then it is up to us to make it work. Even if we are doing fine, can we say that we are getting comfortable with what is going on.
Are we ready if we get blind sided in the future? Look back at the 90s. Everything was going great. Then the world changed. Blame who you want but it is up to us to control our lives and make our businesses grow. We are the only ones that we can depend on. The Internet is alive with the minds of everyone on it. Just trying to do what they feel they should. We can make a difference.
How do you fit? Who are you talking to? Where are they? What do they need to know?
What do I want my visitors to do on my site? How can I collect emails? How do I build community around my site?
These are all questions that we need to answer, over and over again. I am going to talk about each of these over the coming days. But even before I do what are the answers for your business?
Take some time have a cup of tea or coffee. Think about what you need your site to do for you. Make a plan and and take it one step at a time. Do it from a mindful place. In other words take each task one at a time. Put 100% of you into each task! This will help you succeed. This will get you where you need to go and you will be proud of the results. Don’t get me wrong this is not an easy thing to do. If it was everyone would already be doing it. But you are special, you are a business owner. As President Obama says “Small business is the back bone of our Country”
Sometimes we need to kick ourself’s in the pants to get going. Do it now! Make a difference in your business today! Keep reading and we will take this journey together. One day at a time. One step at a time. One post at time.
Keep the faith in yourself and have a peaceful day.
