Note: I’ll be hosting a free, no-strings-attached webinar this Wednesday, May 11 with Adam Baker from Man Vs. Debt. We’ll be answering your questions about building momentum in your online business. Attendance is limited so register now, or read below for full details.
When it comes to growing your online business, momentum is a force that you want on your side.
In the early days, it can seem like you’re running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. You try to do it all to build your online audience: writing content, investing in social media, building outposts, making new relationships, writing guest posts, interviewing people, it all adds up to a LOT of time and effort.
Without that time and effort, your project might never get off the ground. There isn’t really any way to short circuit the process. Yes, producing epic content will make your life easier, but there’s still a ton of effort ahead of you.
The good news is that it does get easier.
I’ve witnessed this myself with a few of my own websites and have seen my online entrepreneurs friends in the same boat. At some point, momentum takes over and your site starts to grow independently of your efforts.
At that point that momentum really kicks in, it no longer makes sense for you to spend time doing the same things you did to grow your site in the early days. Your focus turns to bigger issues like revenue, owning your topic and building a business with staying power.
If you feel now like you’re not sure if you can keep up all the effort, this is the good news. You don’t have to keep pounding the pavement so hard forever. Eventually your efforts will snowball enough to give you a reprieve, at least on some fronts.
Getting to that momentum point should be your goal.
One guy who thinks about momentum a lot is Adam Baker. He and I both started our first blogs in the same month (back in March 2009), and I watched his site Man Vs. Debt take off and become one of the top personal finance sites in less than a year. Baker has a lot to say about momentum and how it can affect your online business.
Baker rolled into the Bay Area this week on his great american road trip with a great idea. “Why don’t we co-host a webinar about building momentum in your online business?” he asked me.
I thought that was a fantastic idea, and so that’s what we’re gonna do.
This Wednesday, May 11 at 6pm Pacific time, Baker and I will be holding a free webinar. This is a no-strings-attached event and we won’t be selling anything. Baker and I just love to rap about building online businesses, and we want to answer questions about finding that “momentum point” for anyone who wants to join.
If you’re interested, sign up now for one of the spots. We’re limited to 100 attendees because I’m a cheap bastard and the webinar software charges a bundle for upgrading to more attendees.
Register for the free webinar with me and Baker from Man Vs. Debt about building momentum in your online business this Wednesday, May 11.
