3 Strategies For Getting Faster Results In Your Business
Here are 3 of my best strategies for getting results faster in your business.
You'll notice they don't include tips on which marketing strategy to use or which niche to choose.
That's because when it comes to getting results faster, it's rarely about the niche or marketing strategy.
It's way more basic than that.
1. Decide What To FOCUS On
A huge part of getting results faster in your business is this — knowing which activities to focus on!
This may seem obvious, but it's shocking how many home business owners can't tell me their Income Producing Activities.
And when you need to make every minute count, it just makes sense to focus on those tasks that matter most.
Yet, most spend time on wasteful tasks like checking email or social media incessantly.
I even know one fellow who regularly checks his affiliate accounts, hoping he made a sale.
What a waste of valuable time!
Action Step: List 3 activities in your business that could directly result in making a sale.
Then make these tasks your priority.
2. IMPLEMENT What You Learn… Or Stop Learning
When I first started my business, I knew nothing about sales and marketing.
So I did what I always do when I want to learn something new…
I dive into training.
And that's exactly what I did back in 2008…
I attended a webinar 6 nights/week for over 6 months.
And what did I have to show for it?
Notebooks full of notes. And not much else.
That's because I made a very common and crucial mistake…
I failed to implement what I was learning.
Taking action is scary… but if you're not out there implementing what you learn, nothing will happen.
After all, I know quite a few really smart marketers who aren't making money.
I don't want you to be one of those people.
Bottom Line: If you want to get results faster in your business, you've got to get into the habit of completing what you start (also known as implementing what you learn).
Action Step: Commit to implementing something you've learned recently…
And don't allow yourself to dive into any more training until you do.
3. Identify DISTRACTIONS Before They Become a Distraction
A huge part of getting results faster in your business is to anticipate and minimize distractions.
Distractions are everywhere… in every part of our lives.
But when you're building a business online, distractions can be devastating to your results.
- Notifications dinging
- Too many tabs open
- Phone calls and texts
- Email and social media
- Etc., Etc., Etc.
And that's not even including the distractions that come from working at home…
- Kids and spouse interruptions
- Chores and appointments
- And yes, the refrigerator!
So what can you do?
The first step towards minimizing the damaging effects of distractions on your business is simple AWARENESS.
And then ANTICIPATION.
When you become aware of certain distractions that commonly cut into your productivity, you can begin to anticipate them and take the biggest step…
Learn to counteract these distractions before they become, well… distracting!
Action Step: Identify 3 sources of distractions that often show up in your business.
What are some ways you can prevent them from happening in the first place?
Did You Know?
Did you know that I recently held a One-Hour Training called The Focus and Implementation Challenge?
It was chock full of great tips and strategies on how and where to focus your efforts, ways to implement more, and strategies to minimize distractions so you can get results faster in your business.
And luckily, I recorded the whole session and made it available for you!
I've heard people say there are no shortcuts to success.
There ARE shortcuts if you understand the process of building a business.
The first (and most obvious) one is to find a Coach/Mentor who can show you the ropes and help you avoid mistakes.
But beyond that, I've other shortcuts in leveraging other people's knowledge and most importantly, other people's audiences.
If that interests you, this training is for you.
The Action Accelerator
Some of the people who took the Focus and Implementation Challenge wanted my personal help in dealing with distractions, focus and implementation.
So I decided to offer a 90-minute strategy session I call The Action Accelerator.
During this session, we figured out strategies for
- Dealing with their specific distractions
- What specific activities they should focus on to drive results
- How to structure their limited time for maximum effort
- How best to implement what they learn to get more leads, sales, and signups.
