  • Use Your To-Do List to Take Real Action

    Boosting your level of productivity when you're an Internet Marketer only happens once you've figured out the best possible ways to organize your operation so that you are able to get more done. Keep reading to find out how you can make the best to-do list possible for increasing your productivity.

    Sometimes it seems that you are settling into the groove of business, and then something comes along and upsets the boat. All the old vets of internet marketing who pioneered building lists went through that and know the deal. But that is why people with the financial means choose the outsourcing route. If that is something that gets your attention, and it should, then you will be delighted to find out what is in store for you. It is never a good idea to run straight ahead before you really know the ins and outs of any technique or approach. Outsourcing can be tremendous, but it can be a nightmare if you have never hired before and do not even know the best places to do that.

    Get the Worst Done First: Just about the biggest challenge you'll have when you put together your to-do list is actually taking action and getting things done.

    It is really easy to get distracted when you aren't focused on taking regular action and that means that the majority of your to-do list might be left untouched at the end of your day. If you want to work through this problem you need to keep your motivation levels high if you want to succeed. Taking on the hardest parts of your list first is a good way to find your motivation. That's right - put it on the top of your list and start working on it when you start off your day. Since your energy and productivity levels are higher at the start of your day, it's easier to take on the hard stuff. Knowing that you've already finished the worst stuff helps you feel a lot better and that can give you the motivation you need to work through the rest of the items on your list.

    Set Your Rest Breaks: If you work continuously for long periods of time you'll have a diminished mental and energy reserve. So if you want to be able to move easily from one task to the next on your list, it is important to schedule a "rest break" after finishing each of the tasks (or sets of tasks) so that you can reinvigorate yourself and find the energy to keep working. However be sure to measure out your breaks and don't let them last for too long or else your productivity levels could falter. The main goal in this situation is to "keep your batteries charged" so that you'll have the energy to continue working through your day and actually be able to finish one task after another. Do not lose sight of the type of business environment existing on the internet. Dynamic is often used to describe doing business on the internet and sometimes fluid is mention, as well. Do not ever think anything on the web is guaranteed for life because events have shown otherwise. If , is possibly something you can include with the way you promote, then that is a positive but think about what that could possibly mean in terms of the long term. When you analyze anything new for possible inclusion in your marketing arsenal, you need to be completely objective.

    Anything new to you that seems to be a candidate for your business is worth testing, at least that much.

    Have a Purpose: Knowing how it needs to end is incredibly important when you start writing and working on your to-do list. If you don't know what your over reaching purpose is, it is harder to keep up your gumption for finishing your list. There's no point in tackling a to-do list all day if you don't have a clear vision of what your intentions are because there is more here than just finishing items on your list. So sit down, figure out your ultimate goal and write it down so that you can break it down into tasks for your to-do list.

    Mostly your goal needs to be finishing your daily to-do list but if something comes up and you can't try to remember that tomorrow is another day.

    If you are totally just getting involved in IM for the first time, then just know that a ton has been written about increasing productivity with lists over the years.

    Diversity in your business methods and approaches is truly stunning because you will discover leveraging opportunities that you would otherwise be blind about. You have read about several new approaches, maybe new to you, and that combination is full of incredible new things for your business. It is not necessary to do a full-blown campaign if you liked something you read about, here, and that is the beauty of running limited testing. Right now, if you are a beginner, then you do not have all you need to start because we did not give it to you - not enough room to do that. It can get a little nerve wracking when you want to do something you have never tried before and are really feeling hesitant to squeeze the trigger on it. You will have every reason to be optimistic here, and why should that not be the case, ever?

  • Raising Your RSS Feed Subscriber Numbers More Easily

    If you plan to create a blog, or already have one, then you already know how important it is to keep and add RSS subscribers so you can have repeat visitors. The purpose of this article is to clearly show you what kind of steps you can and how you can work on getting more RSS feed subscribers to your blog in the best possible way ...

    Maybe an obvious point but it is extremely important; your ability to make money and last in your IM business rests squarely on how you put it all together and make it work for you.

    You can rattle off any number of strategies used, adding subscribers - that is a randomly chosen tool many people like. There is also no surprise that any marketing method will produce widely different results.

    If you are extremely confident you are doing everything right, then how about testing that and getting a more experienced opinion? You can look at the most basic type of campaign and is is apparent there is much more going on than meets the untrained eye.

    All the greatest business people on the net who started small eventually realized how critical testing all those small parts are for getting the greatest conversions.

    Bottom of the Post Reader Encouragement: People need to be encouraged and they need to be reminded about the fact that they should and they can subscribe to your blog's RSS feed. One effective way to do this is to post a small message at the end of each of your post specifically telling your readers that they can subscribe to your feed and how they should go about the process. Since your post is already going to be interactive in nature where you commit to communicate your ideas with your readers, your little message is going to come within this flow and it won't look odd. There is nothing wrong in showing your readers the benefit of subscribing to you blogs RSS feed. This is the perfect time to put out that message because if your readers liked your post they will be in a receptive mode. There is no question, by those with experience and success, that , can accomplish a lot for your business. If you found your self nodding your head because it seems all too obvious, then you have to keep in mind all those who do not have your level of expertise. The thing about just starting out is you read something, and you can have the impression that is all there is. Our articles are designed to be an introduction, and of course we cannot go into great detail when presenting multiple methods or ideas in a single article. The very best thing is to maintain an open mind, and look to see if there may be something you can extract and apply it in your business. Don't Overdo: While you do want to follow the recommendation of updating your blog posts several times during a day or week, try not to go overboard with it. You will want to give your readers new and useful content, but it is important to balance the when and how often so they aren't overwhelmed. If your readers aren't able to keep up because there are just too many updates, they will find the blog overwhelming and end up clicking the unsubscribe button. So that your subscriber numbers don't end up decreasing it is just as important to retain your old subscribers as well as focusing on gaining new ones. Some blogs are excluded from this rule because they are in a fast paced niche that requires them to update frequently. So by limiting yourself to the amount of posts per day or week will give you better results.

    Offer Email Subscriptions: Give your readers the alternative option to subscribe to email updates about your blog as well as the option to sign up to your RSS feed. Email is still used widely by the majority of the people and a lot of them prefer receiving their updates in email, instead of an RSS reader. You might already be using Feedburner for your RSS feed, but you can also use their 'publicize' option to manage your email subscriptions as well. FeedBlitz is another service that allows you to do very similar things, as well as helping you find new subscribers too. Your readers will know they have come to the right place and subscribe to your blog for a long time if you focus your effort on providing them with valuable content and a useful experience.

    Even though we know these ideas and approaches have great profit potential, we do not know if they are suitable for your model. Diversity in your marketing should be an ongoing business goal because there is too much for any one business plus it is always there to be used. A lot of people can sometimes slip back into a lazier approach to their businesses if they are making solid profits and maybe begin outsourcing work, etc. Do not ever think that people do not get like that, and maybe you already know about your self and how you are in that kind of situation. Even with a powerful method using blogging tips, you will never get to the point where everything is totally hands-free, nor do you really want to do that. Think about your own competitors; you would be happy if they stopped marketing and promoting while you continued and eventually passed them - that is what you do not want to happen to you.
