Set A Ridiculous Goal

Setting a ridiculous goal may seem stupid to you but if I tell you this was suggested by one of my mentors, a guy who set the ridiculous goal of creating  a multi million dollar company when he didn’t even have a website or a merchant account.

Reverse Engineer Your Goals

He set an intention for everything he did – every blog, every video, every webinar and every project.  I suggest that you do the same.  When you set your intention, put a date to it.   if it is an income goal put a number on it and work out what your daily output needs to be to achieve it.

If you want to earn $30k a month -that’s $1k a day.  How many sales do you need to make to achieve this income, how much traffic, how many leads?  Figure this out and then take action.

This strategy is known as reverse engineering. Decide to implement it and you will probably find yourself and your business slipping into top gear within months rather than years.

Once you have set your goal you need to find the very best way to get started otherwise you will waste a lot of time unnecessarily.  If your goal is to start an online business or create a presence online for your existing business then this is the best route you can take towards that goal.

Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles 2

Have you discovered how to overcome obstacles in your life?  Ever hit a brick wall?  This can happen in an instant and it can have some unexpected effects.  I really did literally hit a brick wall.  It was a neat recently built wall but when I crashed into it, it crumbled to the ground in an instant.

Unfortunately my car was a write off  and so was the other car that was involved in the accident.  For a few moments, I really thought I was dying because I took the full impact.  Fortunately no-one else was hurt.

I loved that car, it was a brand new Skoda Octavia when I bought it and I had it for eight years.  In all that time it did not have one single problem until it was spun into that wall by the impact with the other car.

I stumbled out of the car bruised and battered.  At first I was afraid that I had internal bleeding and might not make it .  Princess Diana flashed into my mind.  . I was taken to the local hospital in an ambulance as was the other driver.   I was x-rayed and although I was very badly bruised and it was very painful no bones were broken.

My son and  my three adorable grandchildren arrived at the casualty and I was  so glad to see them.  I realised what a very lucky person I am.  To survive the crash and to have such a loving family is more than anyone could wish for. There can be a silver lining when you meet life’s obstacles -it can highlight what is really important to you.  It certainly did for me.  It makes you re-assess your priorities.

We have all faced obstacles in our lives and Internet Marketers usually have to face more than  most.  Most of the top marketers have already discovered  a way to break through these obstacles.

They have learnt about driving  traffic, capturing  leads and converting them into sales.    They were able to access to the most up to date training, marketing strategies, a supportive community and so much more.  The good news is that, even if you are a complete beginner, you too can access all these things if you are are open to it.

How To Get Targeted Followers on Twitter

I have grown my Twitter following from 10,000 to over 19,000 already this year.   If you would like to gain more followers on Twitter, then you may find that the strategies that I have used will help you to increase your followers.  The numbers are not nearly as important as the quality of the followers.

Use Twitter analytics (analytics.twitter.com) to check your profile visits, tweet impressions, mentions and followers.  Keep testing and tweaking your bio and take note of which tweets are getting the most engagement (both your own and other peoples).  The end result will be that you will achieve the desired outcome – more targeted followers.

There are a number of apps you can use to schedule your tweets -status brew is my favourite.  I landed in twitter jail for about a week, so I decided to add my tweets manually for a while.  I am not sure whether this happened because of the automation or whether it was the fact that I un-followed too many people in a 24 hour period.

I am sure that if you use some of these suggestions you will not only grow your following but also improve the quality of your Twitter accounts.

You can cross-promote your business account and personal account if you wish, although I would not recommend it in some cases where your business life and personal life are not in alignment!  You can find out more by clicking the button below.
