Building an online business by yourself is the best thing to do if failure is your end game. Indeed, failure is the best teacher. However, some of you don't have the time, money, or patience to fail - you want your online business to be a success on the first go-round. Whether you are launching a new business or trying to reboot an online business that didn't give you the results you expected, Epic Self can help make your enterprise a success!
Why Hire an Online Business Consultant?
A qualified consultant gives you the luxury of having all of the information and resources you need in one go-to place. This means you don't have to waste your time watching endless YouTube videos, scouring the Internet, reading countless blogs, and purchasing ineffective online courses trying to piece together everything you need to know as it comes up.
Have Realistic Expectations
Be careful who you listen to and take advice from in the world of online business. There are many wanna-be coaches and consultants online who want to be leaders but aren't qualified to deliver what they offer. Be highly skeptical of any self-styled guru who tells you that you can get rich quickly, automate your operations, outsource your workload, and sit back while the dough rolls in. Of course, it is possible to get to that level, and many people do. However, it WILL NOT come without long, hard work! Get ready to bootstrap your business from the ground up. Are you ready to put in 16-hour days 5 days a week?
Of course, there are many things you should outsource if for no other reason than you can't possibly have the time or knowledge to do everything yourself. For example, having a successful online business requires having all of the right pieces in place at the opportune time. Consider marketing.
Can You Do it All Yourself?
Marketing is just one component of essential business-building. Yet, there are many aspects of marketing that are incredibly complex. Mastering just one part of digital marketing would take no less than 6 months of relentless study. There is:
- Email marketing
- Social media marketing
- Search engine marketing
- Affiliate marketing
- Traditional marketing (TV, radio, print)
- Brand marketing
- PR marketing
- and much, much more
Do you have the time to learn how to do all of these things at an expert level? Of course not! This is something you want to outsource. But you still need to be closely involved in your marketing campaigns, and there is a strategy to outsourcing that you need to know.
Outsource the Right Way
Other things, like your Home Page, About Page, and other written, video, and picture content should be created by you to reflect your personality. If you're not a talented writer Web designer, you can find an editor for $5-$10 on a freelance platform like Upwork or Fiverr. There is also a strategy for finding quality content creators who will do great work on time and do it cheaply.
