I've implemented something new over the past few weeks, but haven't officially announced the addition. To show appreciation for everyone on my email list I've started including a weekly homework assignment to improve your business + online presence.
How many times have you read a list of "25 ways to XXXX" and then didn't do any of them? Maybe you pinned it for later, but chances are you'll move on to the next list of improvements to make and forget about the last one. I've done this a million times. Probably every week, if not every day.
It can be so easy to get overwhelmed by all the tips out there, so this way you'll at the very least be taking one simple step each week.
By doing this, you'll be able to identify what works and what doesn't for your particular business (because it's different for everyone!) and then you can spend more time on what has helped.
I've identified eight areas in a solopreneur business that we'll focus on improving. Each email from The Growth Notes series will include an action item from one of the eight areas.
8 Solopreneur Business Areas to Improve
Community building includes everything from growing your blog traffic to making more genuine connections (online and in real life).
You could also think of this as building and strengthening your tribe.
Blogging + CONTENT
We'll focus on improving your blog posts, repurposing your most popular posts, and expanding your reach.
Website + Design
Your website is your ultimate home or hub online. It should reflect your personality, clearly express what you do and how you help people, and be easy to navigate.
With the website and design assignments, we'll make improvements in small, manageable steps.
Analytics + Tracking
This is one area that most new solopreneurs struggle with, but they're very important. The right analytics make the difference between working smarter and harder.
We'll work on identifying which metrics matter and use them to improve your business.
PRODUCTIVITY + Administration
How much time are you wasting on admin tasks because your business isn't streamlined? Or because these things just aren't a priority with the 100 other projects you have open?
Some weeks the assignment will be a quick task to help you get organized and clear some of the clutter from your day.
Bigger Picture digital marketing strategy + Goals
Do you have goals in place for your business? Do they make sense for your big picture?
We'll work on everything from your monthly or yearly goals to your pricing.
Gain More ideal Clients
Gaining blog views and social likes isn't enough to keep your business going (obviously). So we'll work on getting clients and keeping them satisfied.
For example, there are a huge percentage of solopreneurs who are missing opportunities because they don't follow up with leads.
Health + Wellness for the entrepreneur lifestyle
As I say, you'll do your best when you feel your best. As you improve your health and wellness, you'll improve your productivity, creativity and overall mood.
