I will start by acknowledging my “Peek Behind the IM Curtain” Series – it’s been on ice for a bit, and you can expect a new entry next week! Read it here…
Are you feeling stuck? Need a quick fix to get unstuck?
Tell me if this sounds familiar? You start a new business or find a new opportunity. You get SUPER-EXCITED about it and run like gang-busters… for about a month.
Then you get so frustrated you aren’t getting the same results as some of your teammates, and you start looking for the “next” thing.
Or maybe you even think, “This works for other people, but not for me.” Or worse yet, “This is a scam! My friends were right! I’m so gullible!”
How many times have you been on that Merry-go-round?
Remember George Jetson running crazy on the dog-walking treadmill? “Jane! Get Me Off This Crazy Thing!” I can hear it calling from my childhood.
If you’ve been through that cycle more than two times in your life, and you still struggle with how to get unstuck…
It’s time to look in the mirror, discover what you can do differently & get unstuck for good this time!
You may have friends that joined a network marketing company or affiliate opportunity and starting seeing results right away.
If you’ve been marketing online – or learning how to do so – more than a few months, it’s far more likely that you have several friends who’ve tried several things, and are still looking for the “right” one, or the “one” that will work for them.
You see, that’s the problem…
How to get unstuck starts with you discovering the few actions that really make a difference in your results.
I absolutely speak from experience – I invested heavily when I first got started. I was fairly desperate to find an escape from my seemingly cushy executive sales position. The travel and politics were wearing on me.
So I dove into the deep end and studied my “new” craft every day.
Then, I got stuck in “learner” mode – I was watching webinars and video training and anything else I could point my mouse and find. I joined systems and opportunities and followed them – for a while. Then I would get frustrated and find a new one.
Being a recovering member of Shiny Objects Anonymous, I intimately understand how hard it is to get unstuck when it’s become your way of life!
So, here are a few tips to help you get there faster, and stay on the right track…let’s start with your FOCUS.
#1: FOCUS ON ONE THING TO GET UNSTUCK
“FOCUS – Follow One Course Until Successful.” – Robert Kiyosaki
This is a great place to start!
You must stick to ONE thing for 90 days of consistent action or 60 days of consistent results. If you are following the path of action, be prepared.
Day 61 – day 90 are the hardest. You may or may not be seeing results yet.
You can only improve your results if you continue to day 90.
Quitting is the only way to guarantee failure.
So, pick your ONE THING, and get going.
#2: GET UNSTUCK WITH DAILY CONSISTENT ACTIONS
With just a handful of consistent daily actions, you can start getting results in your business.
While those exact actions depend on your business and your focus, there are some common activities that produce results. Whether you are a network marketer, affiliate marketer or sell physical products, if you have a home business, there are a few common things that will help you build your business faster.
Here are some hints:
TRAFFIC and Lead Generation
You have to get eyeballs on your offers or you cannot make money. Period. I use Facebook PPC and Solo Ads in my business right now, and they are both great methods of generating leads for your business. There is no ‘set and forget’ traffic method out there. Anyone who says otherwise is not to be trusted.
- Facebook PPC – There’s a lot of great training from Facebook. This is my favorite ‘What’s Working Now’ method of Facebook PPC.
- Solo Ads – They really get a bad rep – so many people push these to new marketers. So many people don’t do it the right way. This course shows you how to make a profit with Solo Ads.
Build a relationship with that list
By creating content on a regular basis – if you cannot do daily – pick a schedule and stick to it. Not every piece of content has to be an 800-word blog post. You can do quick videos – 2-5 minute videos work great for sharing tips. Remember, Attraction Marketing is all about Learn – Do – Teach. You learn something new (when you invest in yourself and your business. You Do that thing – Take Action on what you learned. Then you TEACH others what you learned. Teaching is the highest level of learning, so you share value with your audience, and reinforce your newly learned skill – now that’s a win-win!
Connect with 3-5 people every day
Now, these can be new prospects or connections in your network or extended groups. There a too many social media platforms out there to NOT be able to execute this. Answer a question in a group or forum, make a new friend – don’t stalk or lurk – do be a valuable member of the community by contributing to it. Just do it.
Email your list every day
Email at least 5 days a week, even if you just have 5 people on your list (or 1 person). They don’t know how big your list is – email them. Your story, or joke, or memory, may be just what they need today.
Someone out there is waiting for what you have to share – don’t hold back – share with them.
#3 Help People: Your Final Step To Get Unstuck
So, this is the real ‘Pro-Tip’ that made the biggest difference in my life and my business…
“Show People You Can Help Them By Actually Helping Them.” – Frank Kern
So, I own most of the products Frank has produced in the last several years. I got some in re-release, and others new. He talks a lot about communicating with people on a CORE level. Now, you can make this ‘airy-fairy’ or you can just accept it for what it is.
Core Level Communication simply means get to their core problem or desire and help them with that. It’s not about religion or meditation.
It’s about actually caring enough to help others.
When you start communicating this way, your audience can tell – it will make a difference.
In conclusion, it really is this simple to get unstuck and start seeing success in your busines.
It’s not always easy, but it is always simple. Help people solve problems, and live the life of your dreams.
