Is online Success really elusive?
In the online world, it is no different than brick and mortar business. You need to do the work and put effort into it. You need to understand your Customers and their needs. If you can effectively fill their needs with Quality products that will make their lives and those of their loved ones better, you are on the right path. Make sure that you clearly define your Goals for success.
Personally, I am interested in people, so success for me is just as much about helping others to succeed than it is about making money.
An online business is like any other business, persistence is one of the keys – it will pay if you work at it, consistently doing the right things and staying focused on your Goals.
The online success Guiding Principles:
- Be ethical, play by the rules in everything that you do and stay up to date. Protect Customer information. Treat people as you want to be treated. Online business is all about reputation. Develop and maintain a brand that you are proud of.
- Manage your time efficiently and be persistent – Set Goals, have a plan. Don’t be afraid to change course when necessary.
- Do your research and be thorough asking all the right questions. This not only applies to your own business and your offerings, but you need to know your competition. Stay up to date on trends and changes, the online world is constantly changing, quickly and evolving.
- Provide valued Services and some at no cost – Adopt a mindset of solving problems. Deliver inspiring, engaging content. Respond to feedback both positive and negative – always consider alternative points of view, to help get more questions. It is rewarding to give back.
Learn, learn and then learn some more and leverage the acquired knowledge. Learn from people that are and have been successful and then pay it back and share it with others. Move on from mistakes, do not dwell on them, we sometimes learn more from mistakes than we do from our successes.
Running any business comes with risks. The best investment you can make is to take the time to learn and to evolve to help mitigate risks.
