This is very true. Squidoo recently flagged some lenses which they believed didn’t have good enough content to remain on Squidoo. I got my warnings yesterday, and if I don’t fix a lens by the 23rd of April, it gets locked. That’s a bummer, but it got me thinking. Yesterday, I got news that 24 of my lenses were flagged. I took a look at the flagged lenses, questioned some, but understood why a majority of them were flagged. I have worked that number down from 24 lenses to only 8 lenses. I still have about 3 weeks to work on all of the other lenses that were given a heads up. The 16 lenses that I worked on to republish all have more content and hadn’t been updated for months. You never really know what you have until it is gone.
Having debates with other entrepreneurs will allow you to get a new perspective on what works and what doesn’t work. Not everyone will agree with your opinion. Some people will say you are wrong while other people will say you are utterly wrong. These are the people who you should listen to because they will offer some of their advice. This advice can either be turned down or considered for your business. When I am skeptical about something, I take time to listen to whoever is convincing me. After the person tells me their side of the story, I will either reject or accept their idea as a tactic to increase revenue for my business. It is important to have debates with fellow entrepreneurs because you never know what you could learn in the process.
If you can perform a quick action in the perfect timing, your business will thrive. Stock investors know this very well. Investing in the right stocks at the right time will lead to a bigger profit. Investing in something too late will result in a smaller profit or no profit at all.
Blogs work the same way. If you find a product that is selling, you keep on talking about that individual product through blog posts. If you find a product that has potential, you can offer a small discount for a limited time. When the price goes back up, more people will buy it since they liked it the first time.
Making eBooks is the same as well. If your eBook is very successful, everyone will want a Part 2. You have to be able to make the eBook quickly if you want to get even more sales on the old and new eBooks alike. Then you have to keep on making them.
How did I get the idea for this post? On one of my track meets, I did the quick action, but I had poor timing. I still had a good time, but it could have been better. Timing is crucial, but the actions that are performed in a specific amount of time are just as crucial.
This is not an April Fool’s joke.
Trees are one of the largest organisms on the planet. However, all trees started out as seeds or something similar to a seed. These trees grew over time. These trees first developed roots so that they would remain sturdy. Then, as the trees grow, they begin to grow leaves that take in sunlight. Then the trees repeat this process and live for many years.
We all have business ideas; that’s the seed. Our business will grow over time just like the tree. Our businesses must have a base income of something desireable; those are the roots. As our businesses succeed, we seek other ways to improve our businesses through Social Media and so on; those are the leaves. A business must continuously repeat the process of growing just like a tree because both of them will die off if they stop growing.
Patience is a virtue, but not everyone has it. We all need it, but not everyone gets it. Patience can be the difference between having a very successful business or working for a low wage. I have done a lot of Lego animations, and they require a lot of patience. A 30 second video could contain over 100 pictures. If you wanted to get a 5 minute Lego animation video, you would need thousands of photos. The photos are also hard to get since you have to move the Lego mini figure in a very slow process. If the mini figures are relocated, you will have to start all over again. On the other hand, these videos have been viewed millions of times on YouTube. We all need patience, but not everyone gets it. If you want to see your business succeed, you do need to have some patience in the beginning.
There are more pages on this blog which have provided more content. However, more is not always better. For my blog, I believe that these extra pages will be better, but it is important not to overcrowd your blog with too many pages. This will result in the blog looking too organized, and your pages will be on top of each other. This will result in posts being hidden from view. It is good to add more pages to your blogs, but be sure not to add too many or leave some of them on the sidebar.
There is also a new layout for the blog which is the picoclean theme. It is a good upgrade from the other theme which allows for a menu on the top and more options for the sidebar. The title also appears bigger than it was in the previous theme.
This blog gets updated so it is a better experience for everyone.
