One of the most critical elements in your online marketing toolbox is visibility and more visibility. You must be staying in front of your market’s view. You know what they say… “Out of sight… out of mind“.
Let me share an example: Hubby and I had run into a grocery store to pick up some water recently and we always purchase the very small 8 oz bottles because being a dialysis patient he’s limited in the amount of liquid he can drink. Having the smaller bottles limits automatically how much he can have.
We got to the water section and there was one 24 count package on the shelf. We put that one in our basket and as we passed one of the store employees, we asked if they had any more small bottles of water in the back. When he returned he had another 24 count package in his hand.
As we left the store hubby and I were talking and he made a good point. He said, “You know, it doesn’t do any good to have product in the back of the store where it’s not on the shelves to be seen and can’t be sold.”
One BIG problem we all struggle with from time to time is procrastination. Sometimes it’s intentional, but most of the time it’s unintentional, we aren’t even aware.
I can honestly say when I get up in the morning I have the best of intentions to “get a lot of stuff done”!! I even have my list of “To-Do’s”.
But then one thing leads to another and another and then another and before you know it – it’s the end of the work day – and I still didn’t “get my stuff done”.
I can so relate to this short video. See if you can -
So what can we do to eliminate procrastination?
1. Become a list maker – but limit it to your 3 most important items to complete for the day. Too many “to-do” items = overwhelm!
2. Focus- Totally focus on completing 1 item before moving to the next item. When you start another project before completing what you’re working on, you delay the completion of the project you were working on.
3. Schedule your focus time in your most productive time of the day for getting the most done.
