Increase Your Personal Productivity With 3 Simple Strategies

You can use 3 simple strategies to increase your personal productivity and propel your Internet Marketing Business to the next level. Productivity can be an issue for Internet Marketers, or really anyone who runs their own business. One of the reasons people want to have their own business is to have control over their work schedule. But the freedom this allows, can lead to being non productive. Remember when you want to ‘be your own boss’ you have to BE the BOSS, and hold yourself accountable for getting work done. It is often too easy to get distracted and put off working until ‘later’, and then ‘later’ doesn’t arrive. Avoid this possibility by implementing these strategies.

Time commitment:

Set up specific time commitment to work on your business. It doesn’t have to be 8 hours a day, but it does need to be daily. OK so maybe you could take one day off – it is your business you decide. Write down your schedule and discuss this time commitment with the other members of your household. Make sure they are aware that you are committed to working on your business and request that they refrain from disturbing you furring this time. Use this time to do activities that will advance your business plan, do not spend it reading email, checking your stats, or chatting in forums. (Unless you are marketing on the forums). Focusing on income producing activities will bring the success you seek.

Prepare a business Plan:

You CAN begin without one. The important thing is to begin. However without a business plan, you won’t know which income producing activities to focus on. Most start their business plan with their overall desire (IE make $10,000 a month). But in the beginning stages of Internet Marketing, it may be more beneficial to begin setting goals that are more easily obtainable (IE build your website within a month). Then expand the plan as you become aware of your own marketing strategy strengths. Review and revise the plan as needed. Once you understand the basics and how much time it takes to accomplish the tasks involved you will be able to prepare a more comprehensive and realistic business plan. Then follow your plan.

Hold yourself accountable:

Give yourself a monthly review. (OK some may need a weekly or even daily review!) Remember to treat your business as a business and not a hobby. If you would like the income generated by a business, you must work it as a business. Be professional and give your best effort. If you cannot live up to your own expectations, working from home may not be the best idea for you. Consistent effort over time is the key to success in Internet Marketing as well as in life.

Increasing your personal productivity will be beneficial in your Internet Marketing. Make a business plan, commit to a predetermined work schedule, and hold yourself accountable to sticking with it. This is the kind of common sense advice your Grandmother would have told you, and it is still true. Productivity management could be an important aspect for achieving success.
