Since I haven’t been running my business for almost a year, I have to practically start over. Again.
Over the past decade, I’ve spent thousands on courses to get my business going. Most of them give the highlights and offer extras (for a lot more). Though I've learned a lot, I’m still left with questions.
I know that the first thing I need to setup is my landing page and autoresponder messages. Got it.
After that, what’s most important? I have a very limited budget and seem to only be able to work on my business for 3-4 hours a day, so it is important to me to focus on the most productive things that I can.
I know that social media is a big thing right now and I have created a ton of images to share. But, then, I heard that video is the way to go and I’ve got ideas on that too. The thing about social media is that I never know if my posts are getting to my followers (especially on facebook). I also know that you are supposed to share other’s work to give more interest to what you offer. And provide more than just sell, sell, sell. But, how often to post? Post something original every day? Share every day? Twice a day? I’ve seen some pages posting something six times a day… isn’t that a bit much? Or not?
Another direction I’ve been wondering about… google changed things a bit with blog comments, but there are those that still encourage making comments on blogs. I have made a list of nearly 200 blogs to make comments on. I’ve only managed to get through about 30 on the list, with only 3 that have accepted my comments. Is it worth making comments or is this a complete waste of time?
Forum discussion (like this one) is another direction… is it good for creating backlinks or not? For being sociable? Or are forums really just another way to get side tracked?
Is it still a good idea to post articles on blog accounts like blogger, wordpress and tumblr for back links?
Yeah, I'm going in a hundred directions at once and could really use some advice (am I'm sure there are others wondering the same thing too)!
