If you’ve ever worried about sharing a business idea or waited for a business idea to come to you in a flash of inspiration this blog post is for you.
I’m sharing 4 myths about business ideas that I think will settle any fear of ‘losing’ ideas, your ideas not being special enough or not getting ideas in the first place.
There is an idea circulating out there that if you write a blog you can make big money with it.
This leads people to think they are going to start a business and it’s going to be a blog.
What I want to do today is explain how a blog can be monetized and what the numbers really look like.
So if you are thinking of starting a blog or if you are in business and everyone is telling you you need to be blogging you can make a decision on whether or not it’s the right path for you.
Let’s dig in…
When you are in business or even thinking about starting you are constantly bombarded with what you ‘should’ be doing.
There’s always a latest fad whether it’s Facebook Live, Facebook Lead Ads or Instagram Stories. Then on top of that there’s all the classics that you probably feel you need to be doing too – building your email list, blogging, posting on your Facebook page etc etc.
It’s very easy to become overwhelmed even thinking about all that stuff let along actually doing it! So let me let you in on a big secret:
YOU DON’T NEED TO BE DOING ALL, LOTS OR EVEN 20% OF IT.
Sometimes people really, really want to build a business online but they don’t have a background that is easily marketed online. They really want to move into this Internet world but they can’t figure out what they can do to make money. OR they really want to work in a specific area online (often business coaching) but they don’t have any experience.
So what do you do if that’s you?
I see a similar question pop up a lot in some of the entrepreneurial groups I’m in, when people ask, “Can I be successful online if I don’t serve other business owners?”
While it’s true that in some of these groups, it seems like the business-to-business entrepreneurs have a much easier time because they’re all selling to one another, I don’t think that’s the truth in the real world. So my answer is YES! You absolutely can be successful with a business-to-consumer business online. And here’s why.
