• Write an article and submit it to article directories.
• Record a video and upload it to video sites.
• Post useful information in forums to build links.
• Jump onto Facebook and share some interesting information.
• Tweet the latest news on Twitter.
• Pin photos and designs onto Pinterest.
• Blog a keyword-rich post onto my blog.
• Or maybe I should research more keywords and optimize my website for search engines.
The reality is I should probably be doing all of the above and then some. But, as I sit here, I am feeling overwhelmed and unable to move – unable to make a decision let alone do something useful.
If you’ve recently read any website marketing articles, you’ve no doubt felt the same panic. You want to keep up with the latest trends and technologies, but the online world is spinning so fast, you just can’t keep up.
It’s time to let off some steam. (Just remember to close all the doors and windows, so your neighbors can’t hear you scream)
… AAAAAAARRRGHHHHHH! …
Feeling better? I know I am.
I still haven’t decided whether to blog, tweet, Facebook, record, write, post or eat some chocolate, but I definitely feel relieved.
Time to just sit still, turn the phone off, shut down the Internet and just be – preferably outside and in fresh air.
It’s amazing how getting away from the computer can suddenly give you a new perspective. Hopefully now your sanity is starting to return and you can think rationally again.
One step at a time.
Now write a list of everything you would like to achieve in a week.
• Two Facebook posts.
• Four tweets.
• One blog post.
• One article.
• One video.
All of a sudden it doesn’t seem so overwhelming.
If I have learned one thing about Internet marketing or working on a large project it’s this: you just have to take it one step at a time. Set yourself an achievable weekly goal. Work on your marketing for half an hour to one hour a day and, before you know it, you have achieved so much. You will be far ahead of everyone else, because most people are still sitting in front of their computer, overwhelmed and unable to move.
You don’t need to jump into all the latest trends and try to do everything at the same time. You just need to do a little each day … choose several marketing activities, be consistent and you will see the amazing results your actions will bring.
And, what do you know; I’ve just done my article for the week. It’s time to grab a coffee and watch the world go by.
