You know you need a blog to support your online business. It’s good for SEO, a great way for potential customers to learn about you, and a way to give back to your community.
But what the HELL are you supposed to blog about??
I see this problem come up with lots of new business owners: We start out strong, writing a few blog posts about what we know best, or even a few months of blog posts, and then we hit a wall. We feel like we’ve talked about everything there is to talk about, or that we’re repeating ourselves.
And we’re supposed to keep doing this – FOREVER?!
I like to have a plan. And a back up plan.
But I’m also a dreamer.
Does that surprise you?
In my experience, people get very practical about business. And I am one of them! But in order to be a successful business owner, you also have to be a dreamer. You have to be both.
You’ve only got 7 seconds to make a first impression – and that’s in person! I’d imagine it’s even less online.
So how do you stand out in a crowded marketplace, when you’re vying for people’s attention in a multi-tasking world?
One of the first and best ways to make a great first impression online is to understand the importance of great design.
In fact, in my opinion, great design that’s built on a strong foundation can be one of the biggest things that can make or break a brand new business. Here’s why.
There are so many coaches out there.
And graphic designers.
In fact, in this amazing Internet age we live in, chances are, whatever your business idea is, someone out there has had it before you.
And that’s terrible, right? Actually, it’s not.
Just because other people do what you want to do, doesn’t mean they do it your way.
Do you sometimes find it hard to come up with ideas? Are you thinking about what new products or services to create or perhaps still wondering about your business idea? Are you considering how to separate yourself in a crowded market?
It’s normal to find it hard to come up with ideas – you are not alone there!
The difficulty in coming up with ideas affects everyone.
Often trying too hard to make it happen is counter-productive and a new approach is needed
There are many techniques used for coming up with ideas. Brainstorming being one of the favourites.
Brainstorming is a great way of bringing up new concepts and ideas that are bubbling under the surface. But how did those thoughts get under the surface in the first place? By what you are putting into your brain of course! And also how you are treating it.
