As in anything, consistency is key. If you are training to be an Olympic swimmer or run a triathlon, you need to train on a regular basis. If you are learning the piano, the amount of time you practice will determine the speed of your success and so on …you know this right? So, you need to apply that same principle to your internet marketing, your social media, your advertising and marketing, your blog writing, your networking and your SEO. Consistency is Key! Let’s start small:
Step 1: You have a blog, you have a Facebook business page, you have a Twitter account, and you have the keywords you are focusing on to increase business…if not, run out and get those. Or, if the thought overwhelms you, contact us and we can help.
Step 2: Set up a plan for this week. If today is Wednesday, make your plan for Wednesday to Wednesday. If today is Friday, plan your week for Monday or to start with a little blogging on Sunday. Make the decision and then move to step 3.
Step 3: Take out a piece of paper and add the five days of the week down the left-hand side with space in each section. Feel free to do this on your computer. I say write because I am more of a planner on paper (we can get into that later).
Step 4: Write in the articles or posts you are going to write for which day …and I hope you know you can schedule a post you write on your blog to post on a different day of the week. Next, add in which days you are going to write on your Facebook business page and about what. Then, create a quick Tweet for at least once, if not twice a day. All of these need to have your keywords in them.
Step 5: Pick the day you are going to do all of this, the time you are choosing each day or who you are going to hire to help you with your internet marketing!
When you sit down to do this, open all your pages – blog dashboard, Facebook business page and Twitter. As you write your blog, add the post to Facebook and tweet about it on Twitter. Make it a habit by doing this over and over and over and over and over – remember, consistency is key.
