How can you give yourself an immediate Internet Marketing productivity boost?
You need to do things more efficiently.
That is, work out the tasks that you do regularly, and how you can boost your throughout in each one.
It's called developing systems.
Let Me Tell You A Story
I'm an amateur photographer (one of my many hobbies), and I often spend time at weekends taking photos.
Quite aside from the time collecting these, processing the photos afterwards, sorting out the best ones, and publishing them online, can take up a substantial amount of time.
So, I've developed a simple system which (slightly oversimplfied) goes something like this:
- Transfer all the files to the PC.
- Identify a set of image filters that I can apply to all the photos and get 'fairly good' results for.
- Scroll through the photos, identify the best shots.
- Make any minor changes necessary to correct lighting, photo crop etc.
- Batch process them all to get versions for the web, and higher quality versions for my own use.
By using the system, which I've developed over a number of years, I can get my work on a batch of photos done in a couple of hours (the whole process takes longer, but that's mostly the machine whirring along without my presence).
This Works For Internet Marketing
Think of all the time consuming things you do on a regular basis.
Now choose just one of them and work out four or five steps you can take and which will give you 'good enough' results.
Refine the process to take as little time as possible.
You've Got A System. And you're well on the way to getting more things accomplished and either of them done faster.
You've Also Got A Product
Take your System, and write it up as a short ebook.
Break down the four or five steps in a way that is easy for other people to understand apply.
You have a valuable product, that you've put together based around your pre-existing knowledge and can easily sell as a $7 report.
Even better, enhance it with video and audio, and you can have a product which is worth far more.
Do you have any systems? What do you use them for? Do they work?
