22.Jul.2014 Real Life Versus Internet Marketing

As I read my last post I realized that in the last 12 days I had been
on my blog only to answer a few comments… But it’s exactly those
comments that keep a blog going and interesting as well!

Other marketers that get a reminder from what your post was about OR
their comments helping you to get back on track after a vacation or
as in MY CASE becoming quite scattered beforehand.
You see my youngest is getting married in 4 more days and we have the
big trip to make up to where she lives.
It’ll be 16 hours by car, pick up my father and then 4 hours by plane.

Needless to say I have been a LITTLE stressed with all the packing not
just for the road trip but trying to keep things pared down for the
plane part as well as having enough changes to do for 8 days. Sure am
glad it’s summer. 🙂

So what’s all this have to do with internet marketing you ask?
WELL I see it this way. It takes a lot of planning and attention to
detail to get all this arranged so there are no snags even if one
bag is lost for a day or doesn’t arrive for 2 more.
And it is the same for internet marketing…you must have a plan..
you must pay attention to even the smallest of details

And that is where I fell down on my marketing plan.

I have a list of things that I do each day to push my business forward
and to make it more visible on the net.

I have NOT been following my plan. I have NOT been paying attention to
the little details that improve my visibility and add momentum to my
business.

I FORGOT TO TREAT MY BUSINESS LIKE MY BUSINESS!!!

I let my home life fill ALL of my time and allowed none for marketing
other then reading a few emails and deleting a lot!

So now it is my turn to FOCUS and make the time, even if it’s just an
hour a day over the next 9 days to follow my plan.

After all I did it in easy steps just so I could do some or all
everyday depending on my time availability.
And it’ll be short for those 9 days but as I remind myself daily!!!
I am committed! I will do this! Focus! Focus! Focus!

    Hi Lynda,

    First things first.. Congratulations on your youngest getting married! Best of luck to them!

    I know just how you feel about real life getting in the way! About a year ago, I was in the same position, not treating this like a business, but more like a part time hobby. Well as you can imagine, failure came my way…

    I learned that Internet Marketing or anything new takes time. Like you say even one hour over a certain amount of days will make a HUGE difference if you jam pack that hour full of work.

    Sounds like you have the right plan! Good luck and all the best! Can’t wait to see the great things you do, and read your next post

    Have a fantastic day!
    -Jeff
