You’ve likely heard that adding small daily habits is the way to experience success in anything you want to do. This is very true for many aspects of life, including your business. The actions that get results are consistent, directly affect your income, and provide value to your audience.
Doing the right things each day pays off in more than one way. I added the simple, small daily habits of writing and sending an email every day to my subscriber list and that has translated into millions of dollars in revenue over the past decade.
Don’t Make It Too Complicated
Making money is not complicated. Almost anyone can do it. I like to say that building a successful business that generates massive income is simple, but not so easy. Sadly, so many people I encounter in my Mentor program and online courses insist on making it complicated.
Even though it’s nice having awesome technology to help you get things done, it’s not required. A simple funnel will suffice. You can use PLR (private label rights) content to reach your target audience. You don’t need special landing page software, or to worry about complicated algorithms to be successful and to meet your income goals.
Do Your Money-Making Activities First
Your business cannot exist if you do not earn money. Therefore, make a list of activities you do in your business that can directly be credited with earning something. Every morning I work on income producing activities that include emailing my list with two or three offers and recommendations and sharing other offers and recommendations on social media. Then I reach out individually to people to share an offer that I believe will help them in a specific way. Making offers is the fastest way to make money. In my own business I offer my own products, courses, and programs, as well as those of others.
Keeping Up with Your Data
The other daily activity that is important to do is to keep up with your data. If you have a call to action (CTA) for everything you make available, and it’s based on something you can measure – make sure you are measuring. If you don’t track and measure, you’re only working on assumption, and that’s not going to serve you well for the long term.
Always Be Marketing
You’ve probably heard this before, or “ABC” (always be closing), and it’s true. You must spend more time marketing than doing anything else in your business. Of course, thankfully, you can outsource a lot of tasks (like social media marketing and content marketing and syndication) to help you with your marketing. But there isn’t a day that goes by where you will not be marketing. That may consist of the small daily habits of publishing a new article or a white paper, emailing your list, sharing a training video or a podcast, or running a membership push to add members to your sites.
To ensure that you do the things you need to do to grow your business and get smarter about marketing, it’s a good idea to use your calendar to schedule everything you are going to do. I maintain a marketing schedule and calendar that begins with my handwritten notes. I also use a mini legal pad (5 by 7 inches; 12.7 by 18 cm) to begin all of my tasks. That way, when I sit down to work, I simply open my calendar and my mini legal pad and I can pick up where I left off earlier and get started on those tasks. Consistency is the key to success.
Small Daily Habits Must Be Consistent
Focus on developing consistent action when it comes to marketing. If you get stuck somewhere reach out to your coach or mentor for answers and solutions. This is going to help you grow your business, your income, and your bottom line. Running a successful business is also beneficial to your personal development and growth. Believe it or not, you don’t have to do as much as you think you do to succeed. You simply need to work smarter by developing your simple and small daily habits, not any harder or longer.
