Today in this blog I want to talk to you about how to grow your online business. We’re just getting started with the 2020 year. This is something you need to think about if you’re really serious about wanting to grow your online business.
I’m going to give you five actionable items that you can start right now.
Growing Your Online Business – Your “Why”
A lot of people when they first start out really don’t dig deep enough. They don’t dig deep down inside to really send their “why”. When they first start out the excitement and enthusiasm carry them for a short while. You’re highly motivated to make it work.
You work like gangbusters getting everything figured out. But as time passes and you’re not seeing the results you were expecting. This is the point where you end up quitting.
This is because motivation can only take you so far. Motivation is something short-lived. This is how most people react when getting started with their business. They’re highly motivated at the beginning.Then they find themselves having to try and motivate themselves over and over. You think that if you stay motivated going to help make your dreams a reality.
You have to create a desire. The desire to want to have an online business. Your desire is what’s going to drive you and keep you driven every day. Your desire is going to give you the faith to keep going. Having a strong desire is going to help push you through those days when you’re not getting any results.
How is this desire created?
This is where your “why” comes in. Your “why” has to be big enough for you to really want to create your own business. Your “why” is going to give you a sense of purpose. If you’re really clear on your “why”. It is going to make it easier for you to push through every single day.
You will need to go back and think about your “why” from time to time. The more clear that you are with your “why”. The more you are going to be driven by it.
Growing Your Online Business – What’s The Alternative
This is what you start to think about when you’re thinking about quitting. This is going to happen a lot as you’re working on your business. You start to think about if I quit then what. The minute you start doing this you completely forgot about your “why”. For this reason you need to constantly be reminding yourself of your “why”.
Sometimes the alternative can be the thing that keeps you going. If you stop to think about if I quit then what’s going to happen. It will probably take you less than a second to come up with your answer.
Maybe you’re working some long hours, or you hate your job. Maybe it doesn’t pay enough. Your looking to start your online business to get you away from this life and into a much better one. How is that going to happen if you quit. If you choose the alternative.
You’re right back to where you started. Most people end up doing this because it’s comfortable. A lot of people don’t like change or getting uncomfortable.
Being uncomfortable and accepting change are two of the very things that are going to make you successful.

Growing Your Online Business – Develop Your Skills
You need to focus on developing your skills. With an online business there are many hats you’re going to have to wear during the day. You need to master each and every one of these hats. You’re going to need skills in becoming an influencer. You’re going to have to know how to grow your company. You’re going to have to skill up in creating more sales.
One of the best ways to help you do this. You need to get around people that are doing the same thing as you. When you do this you’re going to shorten your learning time when developing your new skill sets.
I’m always amazed when I talk with other people. I’m amazed at the skills they have. Most of the time I’ve never thought of these. Sometimes you can take these skills and apply to your business. If you really want to learn. You have to be a good listener and not a talker. You need to constantly be thinking about how I can take certain skills and get them working in your business.
Just through meeting people I have learned new skills to make things easier. You may learn how to automate a task that you have been doing manually. This alone will save you a lot of time each day.
You never know who you’re going to meet. What video you may watch. What book you’re going to read. What Facebook live you may be attending. You never know when some golden nuggets are going to be dropped in front of you to pick up for the taking.
Growing Your Online Business – Go To Events
Events are a great way to get around successful people. I’ve learned by going to events that I can get what I want from people they’re doing the same thing I’m doing. This is a great way to directly learn from people. This alone can reduce you’re learning time and get up and running much faster.
Growing Your Online Business – Start To Level Up
This has to do with creating content. You need to create way more content than you ever expected that you needed to. If you’re doing one video week. You want to do two. If you’re doing one post on Facebook a day. You want to do two. You definitely need to create more content then probably what you’re doing right now.
This also has to do with training. Training is something crucial for the growth of your business. This is the same thing as your content. If you only learn through training once or twice a week. You need to step it up to two or four times a week.
Training is one of the first things people drop when they are starting to get their business going online. You always need to be learning. This is an ongoing process. It doesn’t matter how good you are. You just need to keep leveling up with the training.
Growing Your Online Business – Start Today
These are the five things you can start today to help grow your business. The first and foremost thing you need to work on is your mindset. You have to believe that this is true. Quite frankly this is where most people fail. They don’t believe it can happen to them they think either it’s a fad or some kind of scam.
And if this is your thinking right now. The first thing you need to do is start working on your mindset. This is something that you need to do on a daily basis. You don’t do it for one week a month or a year then stop. This is an ongoing process.
We all think that creating an online business is going to be a cakewalk. This isn’t your fault. Too many of the ads or content out there make it sound like it’s going to be a breeze. nobody’s going to tell you how hard it is. because they want to keep you in the dark so that you keep spending your money on every new offer that comes out.
The ads and videos that you watch make you believe that you can get rich without doing a damn thing. The so-called laptop lifestyle.
There are so many people that work anywhere from six months to a few years without seeing results. Then one day they find themselves living there “why”.
You create the desire from your “why”.The desire that you have will give you the faith to keep going.
Make this your year. Start right now.
