When people (myself included!) are looking to make more money in their business, our thoughts tend to drift towards doing something new.
New products. New content. New initiatives like Facebook ads, podcasts, joint ventures, list incentives, etc..
Even rebrands are part of the almost automatic reflex towards “new”.
And that’s cool – there’s nothing wrong with doing something new, especially when that’s often a path to stepping up in your business or expanding your offerings.
But you can still make a lot of money with your existing products.
I’m launching a new product on Tuesday, and I’ve been working on it for the past few weeks. The product is all finished, and now I’m just working on writing the sales page.
(What’s the product about? Writing sales pages. How meta.)
Anyway, I’m like every product creator out there, and during the process of creating a new product, there are the inevitable ups and downs.
There are times when I’m all high-energy and excited (Whoo Kris!), and times when I’m staring at the computer, stuck and not knowing what to do next (WTF Kris?!?!).
Being stuck sucks. It makes simple tasks take so much longer than they should.
Sure, making a product involves a lot of steps, and there’s plenty of work involved. That work takes time.
But for me – and I suspect most of you reading this – that time is nothing compared to the amount of time spent feeling stuck, procrastinating and generally feeling anxious AF about the work itself.
If you don’t do something about this, that’s going to cause a multiplier effect that makes your product creation time take between 2 and 10 times longer than it needs to.
So I’m going to tell you a simple trick that I’ve used throughout this project to cut that multiplier effect down and help me build my new course in just a few weeks.
If you do this, every product, blog post or random project will get done so much quicker than usual.
Sometimes you want to write a blog post, but you’re feeling completely stuck on ideas for… well, anything.
It can be a confusing place to be, because you’re a smart person. You know your stuff – so why can’t you think of anything to write?
The reasons for your stuckness don’t really matter – because the solution is the same:
Use something external to stimulate the creative part of your brain so you can get writing again. Once you have a new idea, you’ll be ready to roll.
But where do you find these sources of inspiration to jump-start your brain?
Here are 10 answers that can get your blog moving forward, full speed ahead.
How many new clients can you attract through your blog posts? Plenty – but only if you know what specific kinds of content will appeal to people actively looking for service providers.
Earlier, I previously covered what blog posts work best to sell your products, and today we’ll take a similar angle for clients.
I’ll walk you through 7 types of blog posts that have a higher-than-average chance of getting a potential client to decide to get in touch with you today.
Let’s take a look at them now.
So far we’ve covered a lot of ground on networking – why it’s more important than ever right now, why you need to choose one of the 3 networking camps, and which networking activities are best for each camp.
Today we’re going to look at how your network can grow with two different strategies – networking up and networking out.
I’ll walk you how each of them works, and give you my recommendations for what you should do moving forward.
