Create An Activity Management Plan

What is an activity management plan?

When you are constantly juggling between tasks and time, it is now the perfect moment when you know how to manage your activities to give more space and time for doing what you want. Isn’t that we are here for? Our long time credo to help others become financially free through online marketing and blogging (watch this video on what platform we use to do this here) means being 80% productive out of the 20% work we did. And we didn’t do just that by mismanaging our activities.

The 24-hour time you have is just like everyone else’s. What you do with them is the only thing that sets you apart. How then can you create this plan to manage all your activities?

SCHEDULE. Let us go back to the basics. Managing often begins with a layout. Try doing this in Excel or best, your calendar. Maximize your availability. The rich and successful people value their time so much they HIRE people to schedule it. Why not do it also? Finding a layout and formatting it might be the most challenging part because you have to maintain it in the future and it has to be the best one that you can understand and keep track off easily.

Create Activity Management Plan

LIST. Now that you have decided on a format, list down your activity that is as early as one week ahead. Again, this management plan is for your online marketing activities – not your time. The “time” part will follow.

TRACK. When you feel like your days and long and your weeks are short, check back on your calendar and find out where all of your time is going and whether you have managed 80% of the 20% you have devoted to doing your Empower Network duties. Give yourself realistic goals and honest expectations. If you think researching the competition takes 2 hours than the usual, write that down.

PRIORITIZE. After listing your activities and tracking which tasks are the ones that make you productive, prioritize them in order of how they will affect your health, wealth, and relationships. When you constantly address activities that make you rich, healthy, and emotionally stable, then wouldn’t you be leading a complete life then? Isn’t that one of our goals? Watch this video too on how I made myself one of the top 7 Figure earners in the online marketing industry.

Time is constant in our lives but activities are the ones that CHANGE. By giving more significance on activities that bring you success, it is easier then to let go of the ones that don’t. Discipline and perseverance will be your allies and procrastination your enemy.

Manage your activities and plan them in a way that will combat time and the hectic chaos of your life. Who knows, by being religious to such tasks, you might even end up with more time that usual for recreational activities.

Empower Network or Create Your Own Blog

Now we are going to create your own self-hosted blog and start safeguarding your blogs and content for the long haul. Position yourself at the top of your own niche and give your readers a different YOU. How to begin?

Brand Name and Domain. Have you decided on a name to use online? You can use www.fullname.com if its available or perhaps a nickname that you wanted to be known for. I’ve used www.dev.needavasolutions.com/scottsmith because it stands for me helping out everyone to be come 7 figure earners. The surfing part is what I do in between! Remember, once you decided on brand name, it would be hard to switch to something else or your followers will get confused. Seeking and deciding on your brand and domain URL is the hardest part of setting up your own site – its final and it sticks.

Hosting and Domain. Search for a hosting domain that has had several reviews on satisfied customers.  They usually give more discounts when you purchase a hosting plan for more than 1 year. For example, buying a hosting plan that will cost you $8/month for a year is more expensive than buying a hosting plan that will cost you $3/month for a year for 3 years.

Hosting plans already include a free domain for two years the most. Don’t get confused between hosting plan and domain. You can buy a domain anywhere and register for a www.yourbrandname.com but you need a hosting plan to “host” or cater all your files and content that you are going to be publishing online. A domain cannot stand alone without a hosting plan.

WordPress, Blogger or Joomla. Now that you have your www.brandname.com and is now hosted, you will have another choice to make – will you build your website from scratch or install it using WordPress or Blogger (there are others but I’ve just listed the major two)?

My blog is hosted with WordPress and notwithstanding its functionality and form, WordPress seems to be the best content management system online. Blogger, on the other hand, lacks the necessary plugins or functionalities that can make your blogging life easy. [Watch out soon for an in-depth tutorial on setting up WordPress]

Blog. Start putting and publishing content on your blog. Try posting everyday if schedule permits or at least three (3) times a day. Read about more blogging content here.

Now that you have your blog set up and ready – it is time to optimize and customize it! More of this soon!

Ciao,

Scott

Why Organize Your Blogging

Why Organize Your Blogging

When blogging at Empower Network is one’s bread and butter, writing and generating content becomes second nature to you especially when blogging and the blogging system is the major product that the Empower Network members are encouraging new members to use. I have been blogging for almost a year now and the list of topics and the stories to blog about just keep getting longer and longer. Watch this video on why you should start your own blog now.

You might think that blogging for Empower Network will have its limitations but the possibilities are endless! As of writing this blog, I already created 3 more topics out of it and listed it down as drafts for future posts.

How do I organize my blogging?

 

I know that since I am going to be blogging for as long as I know how to write and create content that my readers will consider the king of information, I have to organize my blogging and the content that I publish to the public. Some bloggers, although one reason why people went to blogging is because they can freely talk about anything in random, just rant and rave about everything under the sun and completely forget their readers and audience.

Start Blog

Selfish, I might add, but when you get visits as many as 1,000 per day or more than that, there is a reason why readers particularly keep coming back to you – your content is valuable enough for them to keep on going back to your site. They eagerly wait for your next big reveal or next insightful story that they will share to their friends and families, too. Read this post that shows you why I am where I am now because of blogging.

There are days that my head is teeming with ideas and with organization, you can easily identify the areas where you would like to start first then follow through with supporting articles in the future.

How Do You Measure Data?

Internet users today such as entrepreneurs use several devices to access their favourite sites and networking channels. These consumers interact in so many ways with anything and might even stumble upon your business. When you have a blogging support and system that you utilize in Empower Network, this information is highly important especially when you want to know who among your visitors have visited you from their mobile devices or their desktop.

Information like these when collected over time means you can customize your marketing campaigns and even plan your website’s future  content. Curating data will help you target your audience the most on where they are currently active. This method, my friends, will achieve efficacy in advertising, marketing, converting leads and users maximizing your product.

How do you measure data then?  

You will find incredulous opportunities in collecting data but you also need tools that will take care of the challenges of curating hashed data swimming all over the internet. Here are my top 5 Analytics Tools that are part of my Internet Marketing tips that you can also use reading data:

Blogging Content Ideas

Make Money Blogging Empower Network

Just like every news, article and any journalistic medium is expected to inform, educate and entertain their readers, your website and blog should do the same. When your readers visit you, they should be able to stay in your site for as long as 2 minutes. Anything less than that means you might need to write more compelling stories for them to stay longer. (Read about how to capture your audience here).

When you are running and maintaining an online marketing business like Empower Network, content is your bread and butter.  You must reach out to your audience and guide them to the ins and outs of your business so that not only they will be interested to be part of it also but they will gladly share this to their friends and colleagues. Isn’t that hitting two birds with one stone?

Even the most brilliant of bloggers must also have their quiet moments. Can you relate? I sometimes find myself wondering how else to reach out and talk to my readers and engage them in a conversation that will help them achieve their dreams and goals.

Let me share with you some of the things I learned from Chris Record on brainstorming on blogging content ideas.

Talk about what you learned from Empower Network. Although the training and videos are embedded in the system for exclusive use to the members, you can help others who are not members of our team by sharing what you have learned. We have had members who didn’t know the first thing about blogging until they trained with us. It was an hallelujah moment to them! They couldn’t wait to tell others about their new skill – blogging.

Review the business. Review the products. The Empower Network, although it is already the best system I’ve known since birth, also could also some constructive criticism. What do you think needs improvement? What could we do to achieve more balance in your finances? How else can we make more money besides the 7-figure sitting in our banks everyday? Ha.

Comment on Trending News. Did someone just make $3,000 today? Did stocks go up? Did Facebook change their timeline again? Did Twitter announce their new ad platform? Things that matter and relate to your business could be interesting pieces to write about.

Hobbies and Pastime. Did you recently take up surfing? Did your parents buy you a new racing car? Your blog, even if this is something that helps you make more money even if you just writing and working at home, is also a personal journal of your everyday life. Break the habit by talking about this new pet you have, a new crochet design you created or the paint and canvass haul you hoarded the other day. Be human and interact and engage with your readers like one.

Internet Marketing Tips. This is what your readers keep coming back to read about – you and your expert advice, tips and guidance on internet marketing.

Hope this helps! I can always do another part II of this in detailed format but again – no duplicates and never plagiarize. Always create your own unique content and the rest will follow.

The Weekends are Too Short

If you are reading this from the other side of the world, it is either your weekend is over or your weekend is going to be over in a matter of hours. What comes next after the weekend? Yes – slaving away again to your corporate life.

I used to remember what it was like to get up every Monday and go work. During the winter season does not alleviate such feeling also especially when you look outside the window and see it is still dark and snowing. It certainly makes you wish for longer weekends – or for every day to be a weekend!

What could certainly motivate you to just work at home and build your business there instead? When it is a Monday and your body just couldn’t will itself to move because you are not happy with your job? Or when it is a great day outside and you can just jump right into the beach with your dogs?

SunMon

I’ve been building my business and working at home at the same for quite some time now. I fly out to places I want to go, I jump right into the beach and surf, I do not set an alarm and get up when the kids do. The last $625 I made overnight seems something other people are unlikely to achieve while surfing or doing their hobbies during the day.

How about we stop getting up every Monday and start planning right now how to live the life you wish you could while generating $$$ at the same time?

Here at Empower Network Australia, our team will singlehandedly direct you to that path. The choice to whether you will enjoy the weekend because of the two days off only or enjoy the entire week because you have all the time of the your life to make money and enjoy the free time will no longer creep up once you get out of that nightmare.

So which day of the week do you like: Saturday and Sunday because it is the weekend or Friday because of the advent of a weekend? Or how about liking all days of the week instead and no longer dreading Mondays? Join us today and witness how our team is now enjoying the luxury of having to eliminate Monday blues every week. Check out how we all can do it and so can you too!7 Figure Surfer Make Money Blogging | Empower Network Australia

More Ways to Capture Audience

Since the internet is a vital channel in almost every sector and not just constrained to the young, its reach grew in the last three years since 2009. There are a lot of studies in different countries show how the internet and shoppers have succumbed to this new form of retail and progressed to a development not really expected by marketers especially when the factors that contribute its growth are convenience and more choices to the consumer.

But can they stay interested for so long?

[pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”]Learn all about internet marketing here[/pullquote]

The sheer volume of noise people created online, activities of competitors and well, recession, might be the challenges that marketers are faced with when it comes to advertising online.

Here in Empower Network Australia, we ensure that most of our online marketing campaigns capture a captive audience. Besides the training that we conduct to help our team, here in my 7 Figure Surfer, I also want to help out and perhaps push you to the right track in executing the 3rd C in Marketing – capturing the audience.

Try to keep your customer interested with your business and product. Just because you have already explained to them how your business works does not mean your education stops. They may not buy now but maybe a few weeks from now they will already start whipping out their credit cards. Constantly keep your audience in the loop and they will surely remember you when they finally decide.ListenToMusic

Go for the Big Fish. Focusing your efforts at the bottom of the hierarchy might be easy for you to reach and convert compared to those at the top. But would you rather talk to the “just considering” group than those already at the brand awareness stage?

Employ humor and inject opinions to your business page. Our Empower Network business page is cemented with the significant credo to inform and educate our audience with our system, policies and procedures  on how to get people to be on board. Entertainment is very important to make the user experience fun and engaging. Joke about current events. Tell a funny story about how your day went today. Show an objective comment in your page on recent events. As long as your news has personality, it makes connections to your audience easier and results to repeat visits or best, recommendations to new visitors.
