Been a while since I have posted a thread but I do frequent in here a lot and see what is going on.
You know it is interesting when you have been working online for a while and see people at different stages of the journey.
You see threads on "How to get the first sale?", or "How to up sales?" etc...
I just thought I would ask this question and of course there are no 'RIGHT' answers - was just wondering what your opinion is on:
"What is the #1 skill you need for marketing online?"
Here are my thoughts:
Understand it is a journey!
I know this is not specifically about marketing online but when I started I thought if I can just make $200 a day I will be sorted for life! Once you get to $200 you think $500 will do.
Once you hit $1000 a day you think you have it made until you hit $5000 days and so on...
I have hit a few $15000+ days and honestly can tell you that it does not mean you have MADE it - not in my opinion - you will STILL get ups and downs.
Here is the secret:
"If you can treat your DOWN time with the same attitude you have when you are winning you have it made!"
So ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING and understanding you will get your good times, your great times and your not so good times. You will NEVER get to a point, money wise where you think "Ahh i don't have to work so hard now!"
Ok second one and this is more specific to marketing online.
The #1 skill:
Constant Content Creation
As long as you have a market the #1 thing you can do is produce quality content constantly. This has been the number 1 skill for me that has seen some of my greatest pay days and helped me through the slumps.
Not all your content has to be geared toward making money.
If you concentrate on giving, giving, giving you will receive - it says so in the bible.
Focus on solving problems and giving as much help as you can and you will make money.
If there was one SKILL it would be content creation for me.
Let me hear your thoughts guys,
All the best,
