strategies for Overcoming Procrastination

Smart online incomes - Procrastination

How to stop procrastination

We are many that are having many ideas in our mind but all these ideas have never been implemented and that has been going for long. This is not only once, it has happened that you are so much tired such that you do not even know  what to do because you are already off focus and all your plans are not being implemented. You have tried doing anything but all to no avail.

It has even reached a point where by you are not even been considered someone that will be able to do anything because all your ideas are many people have heard about them but there is nothing that has been implemented till this far.  All these have not been put into action all because you have been postponing this all the time saying “I will do it next time and that time never comes. Some have said tomorrow, next week, next month, next year but all these next have never come till date and you are still the same person no any improvement.

I can assure you that there will not be any development all because there has been procrastination in your life. You are not the only one that is facing this disease, there are many but cannot say it because they do not know that it is defect all they think is that things are not working out in their life. Things will only work out after procrastination has been handled and managed so well. Coming to this point I will be sharing some of the tips that will help you in overcoming procrastination so that you are all able to go ahead after taking this into action:

  1. Note down all your plans, goals or business idea that you might have on a paper keeping them in your mind will not help since they are not written anywhere. Remember if you need a loan from the bank they will ask you for business plan and you will give them a hard copy not ideas in your mind.
  1. After you have listed your ideas it is time to come up with an action plan showing all steps that will be taken to the fulfillment of this mission. You do not have to be a professional no ask yourself how you will professionally do it, do them in the best way that you will understand and it will be easy to read.
  1. Daily action plan in place, there are many that think that we will have to do all these things in a single day but things do not work like that. It is the same like all big trees that you see on the road side they were all planted as small seeds one day and they all grow to what you see today slowly every day. There are also some days that we also did not believe that they will grow big as they are today.
  1. Self-discipline if there is anything that is really a challenge then this is one of them. Because of this we have spent more time at leisure like watching TV, Going for Parties, playing games and many instead of investing that time in doing more constructive things that will lead to achieving our goals.
  1. Examine your life, you will have to reach point that might be once a month or week that you check how much have you achieved and if there is anything that you can change or work on so that you achieve more.

These are some of thing that have helped me personally and I believe they will be able to help you as well. With these actions in place there are many that have been able to achieve more than expected.

Take action today and you will never regret it tomorrow as years go by remember it will come a time when you will not be strong enough.

Thank you for reading till next time.

You might be many that have skill but they do not have any place where they can display their skill for more incomesmartonlineincomes_-_Freelancer apart from cubicle offices where we all have to seat for the all-day so that we can get something at the end of the month. We are all doing this not because we love that but all because there is nothing that we can do. This has been going on for many years now that you felling like you are tired.

There are many reason why we are doing these jobs and some of them are as per the below:

  1. Some of us have looked everywhere possible and we could not get something that we could do and goes in line with what we studied or are good at doing.
  1. Some are doing not what they studied or love doing but they are doing what they are doing now all because there was nothing that they could do that will go in line with their interest so they finally settled for whatever they got  as long we can get end meet from that.
  1. Some of us we managed to get something that goes in line with all that we studied in school or is our interest but even with this we are not being paid enough to cover our leaving cost. This might be all because the market is not all that big.
  1. Another team will be those that are looking at spending more time with our families while doing something that we like and getting a better pay from that as well. Simple said but this has not been that easy for many that is why we are here where we are today looking forward to when will all this come to end. I can assure that this will not come to an end but you will have to end it yourself.

All these are different groups but the questions still remains what will we do to cover all this? Considering that we have tried many things that could give the solution to all the above question but all to no avail.

I can assure that you are not the only one that is going through this right now there are many like you and are looking for a solution. My recommendation will be getting something that will be in line with your interest where you will be paid depending on how hard you work.

Top 10 Reasons to Have an Ezine

  1. Establish yourself as a trusted expert. People search online for information and will look to you, as a subject matter expert, to provide it to them. Every week (or whatever schedule works) provides an opportunity to build on this, while reinforcing your brand.smartonlineincomes.com_getresponse
  2. Build a relationship with the people on your list. It’s common knowledge that people like to buy from people they like. By using ezines to connect with readers in their homes, you can develop a relationship of familiarity and trust. Be sure to share a little about yourself or your company in every issue, whether it is an anecdote, event, or employee spotlight.
  3. Keep in touch with prospects and clients. Consideration should be given to eventually developing two ezines: one for prospects and one for clients, as each require different information. This is a great way to notify your readers of weekly specials or upcoming product launches, offer new articles or customer stories, and provide links (or urls) to updated FAQs, blogs and splash pages.
  4. Drive traffic to your website or blog. As noted in #3, remember to call attention to new blog posts or other changes to your website with links directly to those pages. Remind readers of your online newsletter archives. Promote special sales (maybe with discount coupon codes only for subscribers) with a link to the sales page. Use links to turn your ezines and newsletters into ‘silent salespersons’– driving traffic to your website and building your lists around the clock.
  5. Build content on your website. Make a habit to adding your ezines and newsletters to your website in an archive area. This serves a several important purposes:
    • Visitors can read an issue or two to determine if your ezine will be of interest to them, which could help to increase sign-ups and potential sales.
    • If you optimize your article placements, you will not only make your website ‘meatier’, but you’ll also bring new traffic from the search engines.
  6. Get feedback from your readers. Make it easy for you to stay in touch with prospects and customers and vice versa. Ask them to take action and comment on your articles and offers. Conduct polls and surveys. Start a ‘Letters to the Editor’ column in your ezine. Feedback allows you to fine tune your messages, target your marketing, and expand your product line. It’s also great for relationship building!
  7. Develop an information product. If you deliver your newsletter once a week and include two articles, at the end of a year you’ll have 104 well-researched articles in your portfolio! Pick the best-of-the-best and turn them into a bonus ebook for opting-in to your list, submit to download sites to build your list, or sell in PDF-format!
  8. Grow your mailing list. Let your ezine subscribers work for you. Be sure to remind your readers that it’s okay to forward your newsletter to anyone they’d like. In addition, it’s important to include sign-up instructions for those who received your ezine from viral marketing methods. A simple line titled, ‘Get Your Own Copy of XXXXXX’, with a link to your squeeze or opt-in page is all it takes!
  9. Gather demographic data. By offering surveys, feedback forms, and niche reports, you’ll be able to get valuable information about your prospects and customers. Learn what makes your readers tick, how to better serve them, and how to give them what they want. Make sure they become repeat customers!
  10. Save money! All of the above benefits of publishing an ezine are free or almost free. The small cost of a top-rated ezine publishing system is nothing compared to the cost of brochures, business cards, advertising, direct mail, pay-per-click or other means of promotion. Not only that, but someone has to manage that production! Because your newsletter is delivered online, you can grow your list to be as large as you want without worrying about the expense. Bottom line − it’s proven that email marketing is the most cost-effective marketing solution for companies just like yours!

15 Tested and Proven Ways to Build Your Subscriber List

A list of engaged subscribers is one of the most effective and reliable marketing resources. A good list so valuable that getresponse_logoit can’t be bought. Why? Because when subscribers sign up for your list, they’re signing up to hear from you and your company. Subscribers have to be earned. What are the best ways to build a list? We’ve collected the top 15 to share with you today.

The permission model allows you to fill your audience with people who are genuinely interested in your brand and what you have to say

With information collected during sign-up (or later), you can precisely segment your list and design your email communication to suit your reader’s preferences.

As you attract qualified leads, you’ll be able to guide them through the decision-making process by aligning content to specific buying cycle stages.

Take a look at the 15 tips we’ve collected to help you build your email marketing list:

  1. Offer quality content. Nobody gives up their email address for free. If you want to build a valuable relationship and engage your audience, you need to provide content that is worthwhile and interesting.
  2. Put sign-up forms on every web page. Your sign-up form should be everywhere your potential subscribers are. Make sure it’s visible and easy to fill out.
  3. Use social media to collect email addresses. Integrate your sign-up forms with social media platforms. Driving traffic from multiple sources allows you to build a strong email marketing list much faster.
  4. Design your sign-up form carefully. Ask only for information you plan to use. A good rule of thumb is that less is more — the shorter the sign-up form, the higher the conversion rate.
  5. Show your privacy policy. Inform your readers that you will not share their personal information with third parties. A clear privacy policy helps you build trust and convince visitors that it’s safe to subscribe.
  6. Show samples of your content. Let your subscribers know what they are signing up for. Use your older content samples to “sell” the email sign-up.
  7. Include a call to action. Put a call to action in your submit button, e.g. Sign me up! This makes the sign-up process more engaging and improves the conversion ratio.
  8. Give away freebies. Think of a relevant incentive for your audience (e-book, infographic, whitepaper) and provide it for free.
  9. Ask subscribers to share. Take the time to prepare valuable, shareable content. Remember that putting the social share buttons is not enough; you still need to ask your subscribers to use them.
  10. Build a content distribution strategy. Producing great content is only half the battle. Make sure it’s visible to the right audience. Define who your ideal audience is and find out where they like to congregate online. Then choose communication channels accordingly.
  11. Publish landing pages. Create a squeeze page where visitors can download premium content in exchange for their email address. A dedicated web page helps users focus on the call to action and increases conversions.
  12. Include testimonials on your landing page. Social proof helps build trust toward a brand and its products. Use testimonials from satisfied customers to help visitors make a decision.
  13. Blog regularly. Great content brings more traffic. Develop a realistic content publishing schedule and stick to it.
  14. Guest post on popular blogs. Publishing your content on other blogs is a great way to build relationships with other bloggers in your industry and introduce yourself to new people. Include a backlink to your blog, and your blog’s search rankings will go up.
  15. Collect email addresses at offline events. Be ready to collect email addresses at trade shows and conferences. Ask for business cards or use the Forms on the Go app to instantly add people to your list.

It’s time to get started.

Now you know a handful of great ways to build one of the most effective marketing assets — your email marketing list.

Staring a blog – Web hosting

By this time you will already have the domain name in place, if you not have one then you actually know on how you can get one after lesson that we went through last.

Today we will be looking at getting the hosting of your blog that you will be starting.  After this take you will have two major things that you need when it comes to starting a blog.

Like I hard said when we were getting started there are many hosting companies that you might have heard about or are looking forward to hosting. I will be guiding you with one hosting company I myself use and I have been happy with them for all this time. This company is no other than Hostgator. They also offer domain registration but as of now we are going to be looking at hosting since we already have the domain registered with Godaddy.

Many are packages that they offer when it comes to hosting and we are going to look at one that will really suite us while we get started. It will be one of the beginners package since we are just getting started, should we want to add hosting we will go for a bigger package and that will depend on the files that we will be having on the blog.

We are now getting started with illustration like we did on the domain registration section that we have looked at already, By so doing we will be getting something it will be very easy for all of us to follow through easily as we learn together.

We will open Hostgator.com so that we can go on with this web hosting so that we can have the hosting for our website:

Host_gator smartonlineincomes

 

After getting to this page, we are finally there not the end but the beginning of something great that we are looking at building. As indicated you will see many option on this page but  we will go straight to get started so that we can look at the options that are available so that we can make our choice:

Hostgator_Package_selection

 

We are going with this option why because it is very cheap and it will allow us to register one domain name which is what we need as of now till later. by clicking on sign up you will be taken to the payment page so that you can make payment after entering the domain name. If you did not but the domain name you can also get one from Hostgator as well on this page. But since we already have a domain name we are going to put in our domain by selecting I already have domain name.

domain_registration_Hostgator

 

By completing all necessary details on this page you will have completed all steps that are required for web hosting.  You will also have many option that you can choose but we are not going to be selection anything on this page but we will go straight to the the bottom so that we can check out.

At this point you will have finally gotten you web hosting as required.

Thank  you so much for your time should there  be anything that you will need I will be looking forward to hear and assist through your question on the below comment box.

Starting a blog – Godaddy Domain Registration

Thank you so much for being a faithful follower of this great tutorial that I will be sharing with you in these few days that are yet to come.

Now that we have covered what a blog really is we are now going to the first step that we have looked at in the blog explanation section in the beginning and here we are finally on the very first step that is domain registration. Here you will be looking at getting the address of your blog that all who are looking at your blog will have the look for when trying to get to your blog.

As already said there many domain registration companies that you can go for but we suggested that we go for Godaddy. I selected this all because

  • There are longest serving domain Registration Company.
  • For all the period that I have been using them I have not had any issued with them
  • They have one of the best support that you can get online when you have any issues.

That been understood we will be going ahead with domain registration using Godaddy. We will head to godaddy.com for domain search and registration. Before doing this we would have already been done a research and made design the name that we want to register. Taking taking is as an example we will be registering a domain startingablogtoday.com.

Godaddy

Here we will be going ahead with domain name search, since we can only register a domain name that is available and have not been taken. For this reason we will search for this domain name that we have chosen to see if it is still available so that we can have it register. Searching for a domain name if it is available for registration can best be done using domain registration sites. Using this site we will also be bale to tell if it is available or if it has been sold and then we will have to look for another name or add some character to Th current name just to get something that will have those word in it;

domain_name_search

 

If the domain is available you will get the below message which says ” Yes the domain is available as per below . You will also get offers that are available as indicate and it will be your choice to select what will be right for you. Selection will be by clicking select, As shown here the domain price is $0.99 this is the rate because domain names are most of the times not expensive.

Domain_name_available

 

After you finish selection of domain name you will continue to cart as shown below so that you can make payment required for that respective domain name:

selection_of_domain_name

 

To the payment page you will have many options that will come by on the way but you will have to leave them out for now and go straight to final payment page required. the final page will request you to go to check out go ahead with check out.

On checkout page you will be required to enter your full address, Email address and you credit card details is you are paying by credit card or paypal if you will be paying by paypal.

Once payment had gone through all we will need will be a confirmation that will show that the domain has been bought. We will also get log in details that we will also be using at a later stage.

Till this end you would have gotten your domain name, should there be any question that you would like to ask you are more than welcome to do so.

Till later enjoy..
