How to get your groove back

In today’s post I’m going to continue with what I started in my last post you can back go back and read it here: read my last post. Today, I want to discuss one of the first steps of How to get your groove back after you’ve stopped working on your business or you had to quit for whatever reason.

Now, when I mention business, I’m particularly speaking of any type of online or internet market in business. However, what I’m going to be sharing can be applied to just about any kind of business online or offline.

So let’s dive into the first few steps.

Remember when you first got started with that affiliate marketing company?

You were all hyped up and excited about the prospects of making all that money. Buying that Mercedes S550. Quitting your j.ob. (Just Over Broke) And having that time freedom that all those gurus talk about.

But what do you think happened after you got started? Maybe like after a couple of weeks to a few of months after getting started? Most likely you weren’t seeking the type of results you imagined and you just quit.

Hey, it happens to the best of us.

But we all know that failures are a part of the process and an important component to our eventual success. It’s what we do to bounce back in the game and get our our groove back that matters the most.

Let’s talk about some of the things you can do today if you’re restarting your business.

First off go back to of your existing contacts in your email database, all of your social media friends, family and connections. Start reconnecting with them is email and social media. You can begin by sending them a thank you message for sticking around while you were in your hiatus.

Engaging with your list whether they’re in email autoresponder or whatever social media platform you use is absolutely critical. Now that can be a science all by itself. But we’re gonna keep it super simple (remember the K.I.S.S principle)

Start off by sending them emails and posts about valuable content. I mean share ideas, information, tips, tricks, and or tools that people can use or benefit from.

Make sure that it’s original stuff, as best you can, or be sure to credit where you’re getting your knowledge from.

It really helps to have a blog and/or website to drive your people or traffic to. You can pretty much get a WordPress blog/site for a reasonable cost. On the topic of costs, I’m gonna get into that in my next post. That is really an all important topic when you’re getting back into business again after a long absence.

Do the best you can to be consistent and persistent with your emails and postings. I really suggest you invest in an audiobook by Michael Clarke called Email Marketing: That Doesn’t Suck. In fact, any investment you make in yourself to enhance your skills is highly recommended.

If you’re not sure what to talk about, don’t worry about that. Use your experience or the experience of others to connect with your prospects. Again, get a book on copywriting. I recommend any book from Robert Bly. Look for what’s trending in your particular niche. Do a “Top Ten List” breakdown. Or share a story that has a moral to it that can do one of two things for your prospects, 1) help them with solve a problem; or 2) help them achieve a pleasure. Either one is a benefit to the reader of your content.

At the end of all of your emails, posts or messages remember to send them over to your blog, site or squeeze page. More on that later.

In my next post we’ll go over financing your comeback. But for now, send out an email to your list and let them know that your back in business. Always remember to offer value above and beyond what your prospects will be expecting.

How To Get Started Up Again

If you have ever been in business before but you just stopped for whatever reason, I want to share with you How To Get Started Up Again.

Starting a company, whether it’s a brick and mortar business or an e-commerce enterprise can be a daunting process. However, let’s just say you already have started your entrepreneurial path to success but your dream company came to a screeching halt. Recovering from a business collapse or failure can be unsettling and even near depressing. You may feel that you wouldn’t be able to get back into the trenches of rebuilding or maybe starting another venture.

Let me tell you that you are not the first to feel the painful sting of failure nor will you ever be the last. That should give some level of comfort. I think. But don’t hate me for sharing it with you. What I do want you to know is that you can bounce back from the failure(s) by learning from them and by taking action.

You must know that with every failure comes with a valuable lesson and at most times you will realize a new opportunity. Learn to see the positive within the negative. There have been many inventors, entrepreneurs, famous people and superstar athletes who have overcome many failures and setbacks to reveal their true successes.

Read a biography or autobiography of your famous or infamous person and model yourself after him or her.

Social media platforms have made the world feel so small because you’re now able to reach so many more people out there. Marketing doesn’t strictly have to be done around your local neighborhood or city.

Whatever service or product you offer can be offered to anyone no matter where they are.

But if you want to take advantage of this, you have to have yourself or your business easily accessible.

When people look at your social media profiles think about what they’ll see. Everything has to be consistent.

That’s why I am launching a new training program that will help you build your brand and build an audience. Get on my pre-launch list HERE.

I’ve had my fair share of setbacks and failures. I know that I will no doubt have more along the way. However, with each failure I have learned more about myself and what I am capable of accomplishing. And I want to help you to do the same.

Invest in yourself and go out there and fail forward. Never give up on your dreams or aspirations. Don’t stop hustling or grinding for whatever it is you want in your life.

Stay Strong,

Mike Berrios
