5 things to think of when you're pushing a business towards success

If you want to be successful online, or offline, you need to know where to look and find the people who are already successful.  Finding these people and companies, who are already successful, doesn't mean you're going to be browsing niche and industry related blogs.  Sure, some of those niche blogs could be making some money, but they're likely not the bread winners within the niche.  If you want to really see how a business is built, you need to focus on the people and companies who are building their companies from the ground up and not just through blogging.

Anyone in business will tell you that growing a successful business is hard and is backed by thousands of hours of work.  If a business takes off out of nowhere in the beginning of its infancy, it's likely due to a random occurrence of events that won't carry that company for long.  To actually build up a great company, even if you have some random spikes of traffic, you will need to invoke emotions within your community in order for them to help you build over time.  You can't do everything on your own, and your employees can only help so much, so you'll need to call on the vast audience you're targeting to come in and love what you're doing.  On the other hand, you need to be providing them with something of quality in order for them to even want to help you out.

Exponential growth of a company is a great thing, as long as you can handle it and manage all the growing pains in a timely manner.  There are plenty of companies that take off too quick and eventually suffer from it because orders are delayed due to being understaffed and then the bad reviews start to flow.  We all know how much a bad review can hurt a business, right?

In this discussion I'll be going over 5 things to think of when you're pushing your business towards success, and they are:


Build a brand around your products
I'm sure you've heard this many times before, and if you haven't, you MUST build up your own brand name if you want to become the main business within your industry.  Sure, you can make a lot of money without building a brand around your products, but you could be making a lot more if you did 5 things to think of when you

Building a brand isn't the easiest thing to do, it takes a lot of man hours and the brains to back it up.  You'll need to publish quality content to your own blog as well as on 3red party websites and blogs, you'll also need to be on social media a lot in order to get something going viral.  You'll need to establish your brand among all the competition, and then stand out from them.  How you do this exactly is to utilize your following and offer them something that your competitors aren't.  I can't tell you what your competitors aren't offering, since every niche is different, but usually it stands out pretty quick if you've been in the industry for a while and can figure out the problems 5 things to think of when you


As a business owner, you'll need to give
What you'll need to ask yourself is "How am I giving back to my community?" and when you get the answer to that question, amp it up even more so you stand out even more lol 5 things to think of when you  If you're genuinely a good person and giving back to your community, you will see that people will gravitate towards you because of your positive energy.  Not to sound like a Hippy, but if you do good you will receive good, and that's a good way to run a business that is able to help others 5 things to think of when you

Don't look at this as you're giving away resources and wasting money.  Think of it as a marketing tactic that is building brand ambassadors to help you spread the word about your company.  The more people you please, the more likely they will send you some referrals!

A good example of this is when I reached out to 10 different businesses in my town that had blogs which were suffering with little to no content.  I volunteered my services and wrote each of them 10 articles with a minimum of 2,000 words a piece.  That means I wrote up around 200,000 words of content for free across these 10 businesses.  After I wrote up the content, I emailed it over to them so they could upload it to their blogs.  Some didn't know how to do this, so I logged into their websites and did it for them, which they were extremely grateful for.  Why did I help them out with their content?  Because I'm a content writer as well as an SEO company owner that gives away services to build up my own client list 5 things to think of when you  I did this initial work for these 10 potential clients, and didn't charge them a single penny, and after a month I had a few of them coming back to hire me for content writing 5 things to think of when you  They saw their new content bringing in traffic, as well as some additional sales, and they know it's coming in from the content I wrote for them.  I'm not charging them $1,000s a month for content, because they can't really afford that yet, but I am making a few hundreds bucks off of them each month because of the free content I wrote for them in the beginning 5 things to think of when you

I showed these people my brand, gave them something for free, and they came back to hire me for more work.  They also referred plenty of businesses to me and now I have more than the 3 clients just from writing free content for 10 people 5 things to think of when you


Every customer needs to be treated like your only customer
When a company starts to see their customers as sales, they will lose touch with their audience.  You need to treat every customer like they are your only customer, and you can't lose them or you go broke lol.  If you can do this, you can boost your clients customer support experience and that goes a very long way.

I like to tell people to treat each client like they're your mother, unless you don't like your mother, then just treat them like someone you don't want to disappoint lol 5 things to think of when you  Doing this will spread like wildfire and people will be more likely to share their experience with the masses on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.

Good customer service goes a long way with people, so much that they will actually spend more on a website that has top notch support.  They will do product research and figure out where they can get the lowest price, and most of the time people will choose a product that is a little more expensive if it's paired with amazing customer service.  I know that I do this all the time and I know a lot of others do as well.  No one wants a headache when they purchase something online, so they tend to gravitate towards a business that treats them well.


Be transparent, especially when on social media platforms
A company that has real people running it will always profit more than a company run behind a logo or business name.  If someone can see you, hear you, know your name, and contact you directly if they need to, they will be more willing to purchase from you.  There are actually companies that credit their success to bringing their visitors into the inner workings of the business through video streaming or just blog posts with great images.  I'm not telling you to invite everyone to your location, I'm saying you should video tape yourself at the workplace and introduce your viewers to the people that actually work behind the scenes 5 things to think of when you

Transparency goes a long way in terms of online success because people want to see who they're buying from.  A company that is ran behind a logo will still make sales, but I can guarantee that they aren't going to do as well as a company that is showing the inner workings of the company itself 5 things to think of when you


Always post amazing content
Of course, you'll need to be publishing great content in order to keep your visitors coming back as well as get Google to love you even more than they do already 5 things to think of when you  Great content doesn't only convince your visitors to buy from you, it gets shared and liked on social media platforms, which pulls in even more traffic. 

The search engines love high quality content and they will usually rank it higher than something that was just thrown together.  This is why a lot of companies are investing in blogging teams to publish plenty of content to their websites on a daily basis.  The more quality content you publish on your website or blog, the more chances you have at getting thousands of visitors each month who will already be searching for what you have on your pages.



In conclusion
Some of the things I talked about above may be pretty obvious to experienced marketers, but hopefully there is someone that will get that "Aha!" moment when they read through everything I just typed up 5 things to think of when you  These aren't brainbusting techniques to get your 1,000s of new unique visitors overnight, but if you do them long enough, you can definitely achieve that amount of traffic 5 things to think of when you  Treat your customers like family, publish great content, build great relationships, and give away something in order to build your brand as most importantly your trust within the community 5 things to think of when you

Great post. Trying to attain success with one's business needs one thinking of others to help.succeeding in business needs the help of others like the customers, clients and the community the business is the situation.So one has to treat customers like kings to get more sales and the best from them and at the same time give back to the society or community to have a favorable business atmosphere.A business needs good branding and ambassadors and all these needs good thoughts to push it forward.

Good reactions from the community where a business is setup can be a sure way to getting customers partake in the business. I mean that one would do little in the area of casting awareness, if such plan is in place at the end.

I think the adage about customer being right is still an important part of marketing style. As you said it, the customer should be treated like a king. My take on the treatment is not only in the selling procedure but also in the after-sales because that is the most important for a buyer. When I have a problem with the product, the tendency is to contact the dealer and ask about it. If the dealer is not accommodating then that is a turn off.

I think it helps a great deal to have the right intent toward your customers. Many people can spot a phony, and if you are pushing products just to enrich yourself without being of benefit to others I think people can tell that sort of thing. So believe in your product first before selling.

Yea, having a product that solves the need of your customers is as important as the business you setup for that is the only way they go bring more clients to you in the future.

I agree with you on the need to treat every customer as the only customer we've got in the sense that it is not easy to recover, if we keep on losing customers and the bad part is they might go about giving bad reports about our business which will further tarnish the name of our firm.

Building a brand around one's product is definitely tough! I agree with that. It is so hard to stand out in a market that is so saturated like the online market is. Also, I like your point about treating every customer like they are your ONLY customer--have quality REPEAT customers is more successful than having just sporadic ones who are one hit wonders to your site and then just disappear. I think that the best that you treat every individual customer then the more likely they are to refer you to others and to give you good reviews for your products and services--if this happens, suddenly you people and clients out there advertising for you for free!

It is by logic that every businessman wants to be successful that’s why most of them adhere to the slogan that the customer is always right. I agree that treating your customers as the only customer is one good way of establishing not just a connection but a sort of relationship with your clients. Think about it if all your customers would be your friends who can even joke with you or tell them personal matters, that is a great relationship that you can build between you and your client.

Well, I am not certain the customer is always right, but the customer certainly always has a point. I think learning to listen to your customer's feedback and concerns is one of the important aspects of doing business.

I also agree that customer is not always right. If businesses believe that customer is always right , it will make them let the customers control the business or leave unnecessary reviews just because they have more power.

I am thinking that success can be really relative. And we have to be really concerned in such case for the work. And that is what going to set up things in the right motion. You can see that some of the time it'd be really understanding that it may work out in such case. You can't fix things all the time in life. But some of the time success requires some level of understanding and fixing from what I have seen. So take few steps at a time. And see where it takes you.

That's true. Success is a relative term. If I manage to earn $500 in a month, I will call myself successful because this is the minimum amount I need every month in my home country Nepal to manage my expenses. However, this amount is barely enough to manage weekly expenses for someone in the US. I write in English as a second language, if I get $10 for 1000 word article, I will call myself successful, however, for a British, this is still low payment.

I think for me success is earning monthly spending that can get me to pay bills. And from there onwards earning enough so that I don't have to worry about the money. I guess it can be hard with up and down earning these days. And so I don't call myself successful as of yet. Things have not changed that much for me. I am going to stabilize the earning this year though.

I don't think I am a successful blogger. I am yet to earn substantially from my blogs. Currently, I m focusing on earning at least $50 every month from my blogs and websites so that I will make $600 at the end of the year. I need this amount for domain renewals and web hosting renewal. Once I reach break-even point I will consider on earning profits.

I think for me the amount is 1000$ a month. And reaching even half of that is not possible for me at this stage. I have to find out other means for the traffic. Also there seems to be not much of options for the traffic. So just learning things along the way. You can earn 50$ passively on hubpages. I find it a bit harder due to lack of content there.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

For me also earning from hubpages is easier than earning from my own blogs. I have around 150 articles on hubpages and I get around 2000 views every day. half of that views come from on site visitors and the rest from Google. If you are active on hubpages, you will always see a rise on your earning. When I was publishing regularly, I used to earn around $100 every month.

I have only 15 articles so far. I guess I have to take time and write something about it. This way I can manage to get things properly working in terms of the earning. That being said, it can be really things that may not work all the time. That's what I have learn from observing other writers.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Quantity is important when it comes to generating traffic and revenue. For instance, you will receive more traffic if you have 50 articles instead of just 15. Having quantity does not mean you can substitute with quality. You need articles in volume and you need quality articles. Hubpages want longer articles, some of my articles on HubPages are around 2000 words.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I see. I have not written that many big word articles. I guess I have to plan out. And see if I can get the things properly setup. I am sure that way things would be lot more easier too. It may not always work out but if properly planned. I am assuming hubpages is doable for earning passive income.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

The key to success on hubpages is to publish long articles, build followers, comment on fellow writers' hubs. Hubpages community is very supportive. They will always support the writers. Follow the like-minded people and read their works. They will surely get back to you.
You can earn a good income from hubpages. However, the key to success is active participation. You should not only publish regularly but also remain active on commenting.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I am not sure if the followers help or not. Because followers don't see the ads. And that means there is no benefit from the followers to be honest. But the links need to be there. I guess that's the point.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

vinaya

On hubpages you earn from ad clicks, product purchase (amazon products), as well as ad impression. If you are getting a lot of traffic and still no ad clicks, there will be a lot of ad impression. Ad impression will also earn you money. By having more followers, your chances of getting traffic from followers increases.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I like the impression based earning. Though it can be tricky. As many ads and the owners don't like it. But I like it as the earning gets quicker with it. And for that reason alone I'd prefer it as well.

I like the point where every customer should be treated as your only customer. I feel being able to retain customers and attract more, will definitely lead a business to success. Customers are supportive and you need them to keep the business running.

I have a couple of affiliate websites where I promote affiliate products from amazon, commission junction and linkshare. I also have a blog section for these websites where I publish related articles. Since I am not selling too many affiliate products, I have decided to change the business model to dropshipping. I don't know whether I will succeed or not, however, I will try to implement these tips when I relaunch my ecommerce site.

Transparency and treating your customer like they are the only customers bears repeating. People love honesty and integrity AND respect and courtesy.
