Are Your Days Scripted? It Equals Freedom!

6 replies
What's up fellow Offliners and Consultants!

I know what it's like to get caught up in the daily loop of email, FB, Forum.

Tis' what Eban Pagan calls the OCD Loop.


Great advice is to batch up all of those tasks into a specific time each day.

Success in consulting and local marketing is no secret technique or new hypey trick. It's ALL about having your day scripted out to the tee on exactly what you need to do, and then simply implementing. Knowing what value you offer and knowing 110% in your heart that you can really help businesses.

It's all about systems baby!


You should quickly be able to know your numbers. For instance, for every 20 contacts you make, you'll get at least 10 appointments, and close at least 3 deals.

If you've set a baseline for your deals, say 7k, then you know how much to do and what to do to hit those goals.

So in this instance you could be earning 21k in a month very part time.

Those stats are just for example sake, but are super realistic, and some would even call low numbers.


But it's all about being focused, and having your day scripted out. The more structure you have in your daily business, the more freedom you will have.

    Well yeah... you have to know what you need to be doing - and more importantly, you actually have to do it. But seriously? 10 appointments out of 20 contacts? An overall conversion rate of 15%? It's numbers like these that lead people to believe they can get rich with minimal work, and make them quit after that turns out to not be the case.

      Two things... I stated "these stats are just for example sake."

      And two. They are not unrealistic numbers. I know my numbers and strategy and it is not hard to hit those numbers. Not sure where getting rich, or where little work comes into play.

      To do that takes a LOT of work, strategy, positioning, and experience and newbies aren't expected to do that obviously off the bat.

      And besides that was NOT the point of the post in the first place. It was about having systems and a clear plan that you follow each day. Having a good daily structure and leaving nothing to chance.

    Kemdev, I think those numbers were for illustration purposes, not literal.

    kemdev has a point, it subtly encourages this "easy street" mindset, but yea I don't really think there was any harm done. Thanks for the great post brandon

    It's very easy to piss away half the day in that loop of email, fb, forums. I know, I've conducted the experiment several times and have proven it out each time! haha

    Awesome points Brandon,

    I would love to hear more about what systems you have in place to control your days...a sample would be even sweeter as I am much more of a visual learner.

    I can freely admit that I struggle with that in my days...I am just starting out and find it so easy to get distracted or side tracked that I get nowhere near the number of calls out and therefore am not really moving my business forward.

    Have an awesome day
    Adrian
