Got Writer’s Block? Blogging for Internet Marketing

Writer’s block is probably more about a lack of ideas to write about than the actual inability to write. When someone is new and they can’t really determine how successful they have been yet, some people will feel they have nothing to say or that they could swear is true since they haven’t had the experience. These are just temporary obstacles if a person really wants to write.

 

write ON!
Marketers NEED to be able to write – no matter what. No excuses unless you can afford to pay for Ghostwriters, Blogging is the primary FREE way to promote a domain, website or business. This is not just a ‘file and forget’ fact. To do so would be to waste a valuable strategy that would create an opportunity to have your site(s) indexed by the search engines and get free traffic.

We must force ourselves to write, and it is not only blogging, but writing ads, communicating with our prospects, customers, and peers; trying to convey an issue to a technical or customer service agent when we have a problem or question, and participating in social networks and forums.

Most people starting out in Internet Marketing don’t have a lot of money to spend at first, maybe even for the first several months when you are not yet generating a substantial income. This is one of the reasons that you need to just do it! Sit down and start writing. Write anything.

Pretend you are writing a letter to a friend if that helps.
You do want to write as if you are open and relaxed as you would with a friend. Nobody needs to create a text book or technical specifications here, just be able to clearly convey an idea or concept – even an opinion works. Of course in some cases especially on the technical side, being able to quote statistics and citing specifications is more powerful than just your opinion.

Try to be conscientious of correct spelling and grammar, which only requires proofreading and being as accurate as possible. Very quick and easy to look up a few words on a search engine if you are not sure how it is spelled or what it means.

Most Wordprocessors have spell check so that should help too. (however they are not advanced enough to recognize some things such as words that are spelled correctly but used in the wrong context – for example – ‘Right me a letter’ should be ‘Write me a letter). Just take a few minutes to browse through what you have written before you publish it. Doesn’t need to be perfect, just close!

You can write about what you are learning, and/or your opinion of things that you read. Reading is an excellent way to get ideas for what to write about. Never copy word for word, but you can just rewrite anything in your own words.

Be honest if you have not yet experienced something first-hand or earned a substantial amount of money from it – There is nothing wrong with quoting people who have, as long as you are truthful and give credit to the author. Use “quote” marks to indicate you are quoting, not composing, to make this acceptable. There are tools that people use to check if their writing is being copied by someone else without their permission or not giving credit to the original author, so beware. Write ON!

How to Focus on Your Target Goals

You may not be able to maintain 100% focus when you are planning on building a home business. So just do the best you can and give it everything you have. Many other things constantly demand your attention.

There are naturally other priorities you have. You may suffer a lot of stress if you have a day job, especially with a rough commute, a family, pets, etc. These are important and need to have your attention first. Best to get those things out of the way so you can then focus on your home business.

It sure sounds like your home business will have to take the lowest priority at least as part of all of your number one priorities. As long as you at least see it as more important than watching TV, texting, or hanging out somewhere with friends, your business will have a chance to succeed.

At first there should be research and planning. Actually right down to the foundation as you need to decide what kind of a business you want. This may be determined merely by your desire, or by your skills and other resources you may have or will acquire as you go along.

To keep it straight and organized, it may be a good idea to map it all out. Begin from why you want and need to start a business. Focus on this, because you will need to stay motivated throughout the process. You are likely pretty tired by the time you get to focus on your business and it is always easy to say ‘later’ or ‘tomorrow’. Don’t get in the habit of doing that. Take a cat nap or just rest and close your eyes or get some exercise until you feel new energy to get started.

Your home business development should not be postponed unless something serious gets in the way. You could lose your day job tomorrow. (try to hang on to it as long as you can). Something could happen that requires some extra money right away. Ever think about how much interest you are paying on your credit card or other debt? At any rate you want to be as prepared as possible starting with the money you would need.

It is of major importance to get out from under all the risk that is compounding. Take control of your future now. Go the extra mile to reach your target goal of financial security today. Focus on your target goal of building a home business.
