Firstly if you are new to Internet Marketing, Blogging, or starting out as a lifestyle entrepreneur,
you may need me to explain what a back-link is.
It is a link from another site in the same or similar niche as your own.
Look around a blog, scroll down to the comments, you will see that if you were to click on a commentors name you will end up on that persons blog or website.
are meant to help with SEO and site rankings,
whether they do or not, they actually create traffic between the sites.
So you can comment on a forum and if it is allowed in that particular forum you can have a link to your site there too.
So initially I started blog commenting and forum commenting under the advice of one of my mentors as a way of generating traffic.
I found it hard at first, I got lost in the great information that I was reading on other peoples blog’s,
I found some really good advice on the forum’s too.
For someone who is Goal driven
It can feel like you are going around in Circles because you are spending more time reading than writing any posts on your blog or comments on other peoples.
This leads to frustration. I was spending hours to try and do a task that I wasn’t completing.
Do you ever get frustrated?
How I deal with offline frustration
I go to a quiet place with a pen and paper and write down the reason for my frustration, I write down the cause and effect, then I ask the right questions.
- What do I Want To Achieve?
- Why Do I Want To Achieve This?
- How Can I Solve This Problem?
- How Would An Expert Solve It?
- What Are Smaller Steps I Can Take To Give Me Checkpoints?
- How Long Shall I Give Myself On Each Task?
The answers just appear on paper, away from the distractions of text, whatsapp, skype, twitter and facebook.
I realised the problem!
The original reason that I was trying to comment was to generate traffic.
So I was going onto blogs and forums trying to add comments to things that I was still unsure of myself then getting stuck, big mistake right?
Brian Tracy “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?”
So I started searching for posts that I could actually add value and genuinely help people with the comments I made. This changed everything for me.
Another problem was that I was spending too long in front of a screen.
So I solved that situation by timing my tasks into hour sessions and when the alarm goes off
I stop, go for a WEE, have a WALK, get some WATER. WWW lol!
Then after around 15 minutes I set the alarm for another hour and get back on to the next task refreshed.
So the transformation has been fantastic and I Really look forward to helping people everyday. You will too!
What you will notice next as you start to provide value on other peoples blogs and in forums,
other blog owners start to do the same to yours and before you know it you are making friends and building a network of like minded people.
The advantages to this are:
- You are in contact with people who are like minded and therefore can share ideas and learn from each other.
- You start to increase traffic to your blog and build your following.
- You start learning added information that you can apply and therefore increase your knowledge.
- You are actually building a network of people who could be future JV partners.
- You are creating your very own mastermind group as each one of the friends that make will have different strengths and weaknesses.
It is important that you enjoy what you are doing and that you are doing it for the right reasons. This will increase your production in anything that you do.
Onwards & Upwards To Success
