Great question! I'm now into my third month online, and I guess like a lot of people, the first month was good, sorting the website out, lots of ideas for articles etc, etc...
Second month comes along and still no leads, but I can see the site getting higher on Google, so I'm happy with that and I continue writing every day
But now it gets harder to get motivated each morning to keep doing the things I have been doing. No, I'm not giving up but it starts to get a little harder each day.
I just keep reminding myself I'm in this for 3-5 years, not 3 months. 'It' will happen
Thank you for your input.
I'm willing to bet there are a lot of people out there feeling the exact same way
and having a very similar experience.
I was in the middle of writing some material for my new course and I happen to be
discussing something that I think may help you here.
Focus and Intention
It's a lengthy bit of writing otherwise I would share it here, but the jist comes down to this:
Get clear on the single most definitive end result you are looking to create.
i.e., a new recruit in your mlm team.
Now work backwards, filling in the blanks of the most logical progression someone would
take leading up to that transaction until you get to the initial point of contact. Freeflow,
what ever comes into your head - don't look to edit right now. But do be aware that each
step should be a stand alone value.
Once you have that drawn out, and you have a chain of events that connect A to B, look for
ways to streamline and condense. How can you shorten the distance between A & B. Work in
modality that opens and closes gaps. Open a gap by asking a question, then close the gap with
an answer and solution. This will help keep your visitor engaged. You are moving them through
a series of tangible micro results in real time.
This process doesn't have to be complicated or mind numbing, let it flow and be quick about it.
The point of the exercise is to have something to start with.
Once you have it now move forward, focused and with intent, to craft the content and
exposure elements that meet the criteria of that blueprint being brought into existence.
Think of it as a stone path...
Everything you do "in a business sense" from that time forward, should add a stone to the path.
You don't go on tangents, you don't buy anything that won't contribute to the path being built,
nothing is prioritized that doesn't help build the path.
This will also give you a clear check list of what's missing.
You mentioned time spent on sorting out your blog etc.
A blueprint like this will help you close the gaps in your infrastructure and identify areas where
you may be giving attention to things that can wait and aren't critical to accomplishing your "A to B" plan.
All of that transferes over to a cohesive, logical, solutions based experience for your visitors, i.e. potential customers. When you get focused, your message and offers become focused. When your offers become focused, your conversions increase when placed in front of a qualified audience.
Focus & Intent
Stay focused and act intentionally.
Hope that helps
