Have you ever stepped back and asked yourself what will make your business different? Well Neil and I have and we’re so excited about what we’re building online.
The great day is fast arriving. We found an idea, gathered our resources and are now preparing to open the doors of our new business for the first time, and the really hard work is about to begin.
This doesn’t frighten either Neil or I. In fact we are so excited, as this is what we’ve worked for.
We will be working alongside many talented people. They have all been working online for some time. They have themselves put in a lot of hard work and effort. They have done so much well, but to this point they’ve been unable to generate a sufficient income online.
They have grown restless, frustration has reared its head.
The fact of the matter is, if you are going to build a successful online business, you need to have persistence. If you are going to quit when you try a few things and they don’t create income, you might as well abandon all hope of making money online.
Neil and I have had to overcome many obstacles on our path. But with stuck with it no matter what. We’ve celebrated every victory on our way, and picked ourselves up immediately after every defeat. We’ve always known we would make it through.
Internet success rarely falls in your lap, it will not happen over night. When you get started online, it’s sort of like trying to put together a huge jigsaw puzzle.
It took us time to you fit everything together so it all made sense. We can’t wait to show others the process and the mechanics of how to make it all fit, piece by piece, and bring them the results they’ve long yearned for.
Did we ever believe that we would stumble on a pretty unique blueprint of building a business online. I don’t believe we did. We certainly never set out to do this. I suppose like many others we thought the answers were already all out there, but we were wrong. .
For us it has been like connecting the dots. By doing this we were able to create the framework around which everything we have done has been built. The effort we’ve had to put in has been enormous, but we wouldn’t change anything about the journey we’ve been on.
I often talk about why you have to follow your passions, and build a business round them. Well everything we do is a perfect example of that. For example, Saturday just gone found us together. There I was a pint of Guinness in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other. We weren’t out in the town though, we were at Neil’s sitting at our computers putting some finishing touches to some of our work. We had the opportunity of going out but we declined, what could be more fun than doing this, building a business that is the culmination of everything we’ve been doing for the last two years. Not only that but this is the thing that will enable us to be living in Majorca very soon.
One of the thing s we’ve never lost sight of but that many do, is they forget what makes them and their business special.
Anyone who wants to be successful, the one question they have to ask themselves is “what makes my business special; what makes it different?” If you want to grow your business and get to the next level, defining what makes you and your business special is a good place to start.
One of the keys to your success is identifying what makes your business unique and letting everybody know about it. This helps your potential customers understand why they should buy from you rather than from somebody else and when used successfully makes you the obvious choice. This is often called a USP or Unique Selling Proposition.
Every entrepreneur needs to try and add value by creating products and services that represent their unique selling proposition. Hold a workshop, write an eBook, sell a new product, offer training programs, anything that you’ll be good at and sets you apart from the rest.
Be different in this day and age, make sure you provide value in your products and service, and go above and beyond to make people feel like they are your only customer.
Why do so many forget this so important part? Maybe it’s because it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by the complexity of everything that needs to be done.
I know how tough life can be when you have bills to pay and you have little money coming in. This can put you very much on edge.
Accept that you have to be dedicated, take your business seriously and work at your online business every day. Who knows…you might even end up making more and have more freedom than you ever dreamed of.
But don’t panic, stick with it, and develop your business, so it becomes the best it can be. We’re results-oriented. We know the websites we partner with and help develop are here to make money, but at the same time make the difference to everyone that they touch. We’re not about web solutions that just look good, we’re very focused on helping our partners succeed. Their success is our success. We believe this makes us different to many.
