I get asked this question all the time, and we've been talking about Generating Web Traffic with Link-Building so here goes.
Here's how I spent my day on Tuesday of this week.
Posted recorded podcast interview with Susanne Myers on this blog.
Posted one other blog post: How to Motivate Affiliates
Sent a note to EasyPLR list and customers about new PLR.
Emailed my affiliates about an EasyPLR.com affiliate contest to get them promoting.
Posted on a private forum that I visit – and my links are in my signature file there.
Asked for feedback on same private forum regarding a blog post of mine.
Hopped on Twitter for about 10 minutes of interaction, twice today.
Wrote an article for David Perdew to include in a project that he's working on – more exposure.
Swung by my Facebook Fan Page to check things out and post updates.
Answered a few questions in a written interview and sent it to an affiliate to post on his blog.
Started my next post for a Cross-Blog Conversation that I'm doing.
Did you notice something? Only the first two items are activities that were done on my own web property. The rest are getting exposure outside my websites. It's called marketing and it's where the money's at. 😉
You'll notice that most of what I focused on involved writing today. I focus on what I do best and on what I actually WILL get done.
Some things you'll probably not see on my to do list.
- Adwords. If you want to make money with Adwords, you're following the wrong lady. At least at this point in time. 🙂
- Writing software. No interest at all.
- Listing items on eBay. Not my specialty.
- Scheduling Interviews for my Podcast. I leave that up to my highly capable Personal Assistant, Tracy Roberts.
- Installing Scripts. I outsource that to save my sanity.
- Designing Graphics. I outsource that because I can't design my way out of a paper bag.
- Recording a webTV show, like iCarly. Uh… no.
Why do I tell you this?
Because there are a million ways to make money online and to market your online business. You do not have to do everything. Choose what you're good at and work to those strengths rather than beating yourself up about all of the things that you are NOT good at.
You won't find me crying in my beer because I'm not a talented graphic artist. You'll see me thanking my lucky stars that I've got talented people in my circles who can keep me looking good.
Have a fabulous day!
PS. I also attended a special Thanksgiving breakfast at my daughter's school, took my son to karate, played with my puppies, cleaned the kitchen, and am about to do my exercises – all before 5pm. You've got to make time to play, too!
