If you are used to just dealing with people face to face in an offline business, it’s a little more difficult to make good first impressions over the internet.

Optimizing your content is a good idea to be able to make the content you create evergreen.
This is where a blog post will generate more traffic and leads overtime the higher it ranks in a search engine.
I will use you tube as an example. If you have created 10 videos and 1 of the videos has a lot more views then the others, you can look at the analytics to find out what it was about that specific video that your audience liked.
Then create more content around the same subject to grow your audience.
Knowing how to read the data on a platform can also help with targeting ads too.
This way you will be targeting the correct audience for your content.
The best way to know your user experience it to ask the customer.
How many times have you been asked to complete a short survey after purchasing a product, this is to gather data on user experience.
This will help you improve certain aspects of your business to make it a better experience for future customers.

In any business there are always problems you run into along the way. That’s not a big deal if you handle them properly.
Although there is always someone willing to help you solve that problem for a price, some problems you just have to get stuck in a solve yourself.
This may take time, this make take you some research – But look at it like this, you wont have to ask for help next time that same problem comes about.
I was told by a millionaire once – You don’t need your own idea, just take someone else’s and make it better.
I agree with this, however you need to make it your own and personal to you.
Or your just going to have 100s of the same business doing exactly the same thing – your not going to stick out above the rest.
The most creative minds on the planet are children. They haven’t experienced all the limitations many of us have as an adult.
So go back to your youth and get creative.
Its hard – Trust me I know. Coming from a background where I was taught to respect my elders and the younger generation knows less then you.
Well the tables are turned sometimes. With people half my age building a hugely successful business online, I have to put the stubbornness behind me and listen.
This also goes for the content you create.
If they are rubbish and someone tries to help you by telling you that. Take it on board and keep in in mind going forwards.
Everyone has to learn from the beginning. Constructive criticism can help.
Be able to be self motivated.
Some days – You just cant be asked! When you feel like this it can breed into the next day and before you know it – you haven’t been motivated for over a week.
Learn how to self motivate. Get up early and dance, go to the gym, sing your favorite song…..
Just get your mind and body motivated for the day.
Do it now – Take a deep breath and yell out HELL YEAH.
I hope you smile after that too.
