It’s no secret that technology is advancing faster than we can blink. With technology advancing we are now in a time where if you don’t bring your business online as well as offline there is more likely of a chance you will go extinct. If not extinct you won’t stand a chance to your competitors who get it. So below are 3 things you can do to build your online presence.
Have A Message you’re willing to die for
I know it sounds brutal, but let’s think about it. How do you expect to stand out if you don’t strongly believe in what you are saying and talking about. How do you expect people to believe you if you don’t believe you. You have to believe in your message all the way through if you plan on building something online.
The word consistency is often overlooked unfortunately. In this online space you have to be patient while diligently working toward building it all up. If you have a brick and mortar business or just starting or expanding in the online realm your patience needs to be infinite. It is not a fly by night thing although it may seem that way. Whatever production schedule you choose to have then you need to stick to it. If you say you will publish on your website one time a day or one time a week then you need to be there every single time because the people listening, reading, and watching are sitting there waiting.
You will Work harder than ever
This may be the start of your whole business or you expanding from brick and mortar into the online space. Whatever it is you must be prepared to lay the foundation. What the foundation consists of so much more then you probably know. Especially if you don’t have too much money to start out with. You will be doing tons of research, and the research will consist of watching videos, reading books, articles and so much more. If you aren’t prepared to put in that real work then there’s no point in even starting because you are wasting your time.
These are just a few of the many of things to consider when starting to build your online presence. It is very feasible, but you must be willing to put in a tremendous time investment upfront. If that’s not something you’re willing to do then just stay right where you are.
