I have to thank Rich Taylor for slapping me upside the head today! No he didn’t physically slap me, but he mentally did because of something he shared with a private affiliate marketing group we are both in on Skype. It was the perfect message, at the right time 🙂
He shared with me a video from a guy named Roberto Blake. And while I’ve heard of him before, I didn’t ever watch any of his videos until today. In the video he talked about the need for people to stop over thinking actually ‘creating’ things. He discussed that his ‘quality content’ came from consistency putting things out there. As he put it, quantity ended up being his quality.
What a broken record this is right?
How many times have you heard me on a live stream talk about staying the course. Actually showing up every day and crushing it? Heaven forbid, being there as much in a year from now as you are today.
This I believe is the single biggest lesson anyone can learn when it comes to online business or affiliate marketing success. And it’s a huge part of the DNA of the Plus 1 mentality.
Let’s be better at sunset than we were at sunrise. But let’s DO IT AGAIn tomorrow. And then next day.
Here’s the nugget. You can only become ‘better’ when you actually do something. And do it consistently. We are so worried about failure, and putting out something that isn’t top quality we miss the biggest lesson in business and in life…Things don’t HAPPEN or change until you start doing them consistently.
Take a look at my blogs over the years (key point, over the YEARS)…I put stuff out there every week. Sure there are times like the past month that life gets in the way, but the majority of the time I am writing content, or doing a live stream / video…Each and every week. In fact, most weeks here at Plus 1 I do 2-3 pieces of content.
This is the lesson if you haven’t already got it…Consistency is the key to long term success. You need to show up day after day and put good things out there for your audience, regardless of what kind of reaction you are getting. No comments? Still put out content! People aren’t engaging yet with you? Doesn’t matter, keep putting out content! Subscribers aren’t flocking to your mailing lists? Who cares! Keep the content flowing…
Do this and you WILL find success.
Don’t do it, and well…You’ll find another excuse as to why you aren’t a success.
