Today I talk about how success online really is more simple than people try to make out. It's actually about Building Relationships Online.
I always find life is simple - but not easy. Succeeding online seems to be no different. And really, it's just an extension of the real world - just in a grander scale. You can connect with people all over the world which is fantastic because it means you can be super fussy about who you want to spend your time with. So I've already told you, the true secret of success is building relationships online, but why is that?
Let me explain.
You Can't Do It Alone With No Money
I've been at this game for about 18 months at the time of writing this article, and I'll be real with you - I don't have a massive budget to sink into my online business. I'm a mum with a family and I have my responsibilities, so if you aren't paying for traffic, you have to learn how to be creative.
And even if you do have a big budget, you are going to want to learn from the masters rather than find things out for yourself and take 10 times as long (which is why I love my coaches and their education - I wouldn't still be here if it wasn't for their wisdom!).
Influencers Know Best
So these are the bigger names in a niche who already have a large following. They know what it's like to be a newbie, and if you're willing to scratch their back FIRST, they are usually willing to give you a shout out. A lot of websites will accept guest blogs or promoted posts.
If you come to them and offer to help them in some way, they put you in front of their audience - and that's gold! It's about getting your name out there all over the place so that people become interested in you and want to learn more about you. I've loved "Wellness Mama" for years (her name is Katie) and I think she's very savvy, a great mum and a sincere business woman.
She was one person who inspired me to start my own website "Women Seeking Wisdom" which is more geared towards my passion in Personal Growth and Awareness.
Here's a video of me having a muse in the car. I go into more details about how you can connect with even just individuals who are your target market, and how that can grow your online business, create connection and get you going online.
