Sell dreams, not products

What is the first reaction of people when they see you trying to sell you something? Most would reject you but that’s okay – it’s part of sales process.

But what if you come to a person with an idea or a dream of how you can fix his or her life. What if you tell her that you have a solution to our everyday lives?

Your chances of grabbing people’s attention are much higher isn’t it?

People are tired of sales people. Quite frankly, sales often get the bad rep despite of its importance to every company.

But, if you come with a solution, people might perceive you differently and become more accepting of what you have to say.

So, stop selling your products. Sell a dream.

15 money-making strategies That Will Boost Your Productivity

Advertisements

Advertisements

You feel you have the right idea. You know your company can make the difference in the market. Somewhow, you just can’t make that journey to success. You lack the productivity due to little to no motivation.

In today’s article, I’m sharing with you the 15 ways that can help to boost you productivity level.

Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/honestmillionaires

1. Wake up Early (Hear Me Out)

This is the ‘early bird gets the worm’ saying. Many successful people swear by it. My personal favorite would be Mark Wahlberg’s schedule. He wakes up around 2 to 3am and start his day with workouts, and work afterwards. In a nutshell, he gets a lot of things done as people just about to get off bed.

There are numerous studies that point out how your work rate improves tremendously since your brain is fresh in the morning able to perform tasks at optimal level – making it the most ideal time to get many important things done early on.

However, I do also know successful people who get up later. If you’re a night owl, then trying to wake up early means you’re going against your body’s natural rhythm. Some even shared that night time is perfect as most inspiration comes around the hour. No one can argue if it’s the truth. Do whatever that works best for you.

However, I don’t recommend this since it causes a lot of setbacks to your body as multiple clinical researches have found that lack of ‘night’ sleep could potentially lead to a number of chronic diseases.

2. Stay away from distractions when you first wake-up.

You open your eyes first thing in the morning and instinctively grab your phone. This is a mistake according to brain performance expert Jim Kwik, you shouldn’t look at your phone for the first hour of the day.

The main reason is that your brain is highly suggestible during this time. As a result, this trains our minds to become distracted because of the release of dopamine we get from our electronic devices. Your productivity also takes a hit for the rest of the day because we want to keep experiencing those good feelings. So, instead of getting to work, we stay glued to our phones.

3. Eat breakfast.

No surprise here. You need fuel to give you the energy to power through the day. Of course, you shouldn’t devour a doughnut and wash it down with a sugary drink.

Think healthier options that involve high protein like eggs or protein shakes. Add in berries, raisins, avocados into green smoothies too and not to forget a boring cup of coffee.

On top of the energy you’ll receive, these types of foods are good for your brain by improving your concentration and memory.

If breakfast is not your thing, like Elon Musk, be sure to take a heavy brunch or lunch like he does when you get the chance to help fuel you to work for the rest of the day.

Advertisements

4. Exercise

If you exercise when you first wake-up, even before eating breakfast, you can overcome your grogginess. This will make it so much easier to start your day early rather than taking things slowly – which is a big ‘no’.

Remember, physical activity doesn’t just improve your overall health. Any manner of exercise will help you de-stress and clear your head.

5. Meditation and stillness.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve struggled with anxiety. If you’ve ever dealt with this, then you know it can sometimes be almost impossible to be present. It can also make falling asleep a chore or start your day with dread.

Meditating hasn’t wholly erased my anxiety. But it has made an enormous difference. It has helped calm me down and return my focus to what’s going on right now. Best of all? You can meditate whenever and wherever you like, whether if that’s right before bed, first thing when you wake, or when taking a break at work.

Practice meditating with good breathing techniques – it helps.

6. Make your bed.

I think my mom would love this entry, even though I don’t believe that I was a messy kid growing up. Anyway, making your bed is a great way to begin your day productively.

Frankly, I wasn’t really an achiever in making my bed. It was until I found I have sensitive skin that forced me to make it a habit. Turns out, bacteria are accummulated in bed if not care for it. I started making bed after knowing this and went the extra mile to spray the bed sheet and pillows with special antiseptic to kill bacteria that irritated my skin.

The importance of making bed is crucial as it sets your mindset to a winning mentality. During his 2014 commencement speech at the University of Texas, US Admiral William H. McRaven said:

“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.”

7. Recite affirmations.

Initially, I was someone can be seen as reserved. I don’t talk much back then. I just had own priorities to work on. This was something I knew had to work on since building a great business requires you to network with people.

This was where I found out about affirmations. Simple affirmations like “Today will be the best day” can make all the difference in the world. They help you focus on what you want to achieve. These affirmations release ‘positive thought’ neurons’ that can help you build you winning mindset.

8. Read.

Advertisements

Except for taking care of your health, reading is the best thing you can do for yourself. It helps you develop new ideas and perspectives. It helps reduce stress, expands your knowledge, and improves brain function such as memory, focus, and concentration.

If you’ve done enough research about Warren Buffett, or the late Steve Jobs, you’d know how much these people love to read. Truth is, no matter how smart or successful you are, you should never stop learning.

When I started running my businesses, reading got me to stay up to date with latest development in my industry. The business I was in changes frequently, so there was a lot of adapting to do from time to time. This is where reading helped me to remain competitive.

9. Schedule your time.

Mark Cuban once said how he’s not bothered much by ROI (Return On Investment) but more concerned about his ROT (Return On Time). This is an indication of how important time is. It is obvious that unlike, money, you can’t make back the time invested – unless it’s worth the effort. This is why scheduling your time is essential.

If you don’t schedule your time, then you’re going to wander aimlessly and having no direction is the last thing you want whilst running your business. Sure. You know that certain things need to get done. But, which ones are your priorities?

When exactly are you going to cross them off your to-do-list? Are there deadlines that you must adhere to? Creating a schedule helps you answer these questions and plan accordingly.

10. Pare down your decisions.

We all have a limited amount of brainpower. If you spend too much energy making low-level decisions, then you’ll experience decision fatigue. You won’t be as productive when you’re mentally drained.

Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Ma, Bill Gates and so many successful people – what do they have in common other than great work ethics? They don’t get bogged down with looking rich. As long as they have proper attire on, they are good to go. Their priorities are ‘parked’ elsewhere.

I suggest that every night, you layout your wardrobe and prep your meals for tomorrow. Or, you could do this for the entire week on a Sunday. The idea here is to reserve your energy and willpower for what truly matters.

Advertisements

11. Put pen to paper.

There’s a routine called Morning Pages practiced by people ranging from journalist Oliver Burkeman and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss.

The idea is that when you first wake, write 750 words to clear your head. For me, this is the time I’d normally write down (or go through) my to-do list for the day. It will keep me focused on getting those tasks done for the day.

And science has also found that handwriting can spark creativity and help us learn.

12. Focus on yourself.

With so much going on in your life, it’s easy to neglect your own self-care and priorities. Over time, you’ll get burned out. No matter how amazing of a person you are, everyone needs time to rest, play, and learn. If you don’t put yourself in your schedule, then it will get filled with other time requests.

13. Practice gratitude.

It’s been found that those who spend five minutes writing down what they’re grateful for have increased their sense of well-being by 10 percent.

And, as you know, when you’re a better mood, you’re more productive.

You can also pray – thanking everything you have and have accomplished if you’re the religious type.

Advertisements

14. Socialize with your teammates.

Advertisements

Socializing with people have been found to have positive effects to your general happiness, and healthier lifestyle.

This certainly does not mean you should be socializing with people all the time – that’s time wasting.

Instead, schedule your time to allow yourself to kick back, relax and meet people to socialize.

Try working in a coworking space or catching up with a friend or colleague for lunch. And, worst-case scenario, schedule a conference call with your team.

15. Set hard time limits on certain activities.

This idea is similar to ‘Shooting for the moon. If you missed it, you’ll at least land on one of the stars.’ If you need a grade B, work like you’re an A student. If you need $1 million, work like you’re worth $10 million.

This may sound overwhelmingly difficult at first. However, by constantly setting up tough tasks – your mind and body will get attuned to such conditions. At the end of it, what you thought was impossible, was actually do-able.

Conclusion

If you’ve experienced long enough time as an entrepreneur, you’ve learned that there is no one cure for every disease.

In this case, some methods work perfectly for you while others don’t. Every entrepreneur and his or her business is different. So you need to mix and match what works best for you.

6 Signs You’re Going To Be Successful

Advertisements

1.) You hate average

When you hate being an average person, then, the only way is to go ‘up’. This mentality sets yourself to higher standards in terms of the way you look at life.

It shapes the way you think when faced with adversity. You start to enjoy what life throws at you because you know,

While most would succumb to difficult challenges – like every average person does, you don’t.

Instead,

2. You practice discipline and self control

No matter how smart or brilliant your ideas are, if there is no self-discipline, nothing can be gained.

Discipline is important, but to become a successful entrepreneur, discipline becomes essential to ‘survival’.

Once you’re the owner of a business, there will be no one to tell you what to do, or what you need to get done.

You have to constantly find that motivation and eagerness to get things done; and without discipline, you’ll end up a failure.

It’s all on you now.

3. Failure doesn’t scare you

Let’s be honest, the fear of failure gets to you as an entrepreneur. There’s no denying.

What you do instead is, to manage that fear.

Elon Musk has a great strategy when managing fear. He always create a contingency plan in case things go bad.

When he started SpaceX, Musk set a target of $100 million for the rocket launch. If he fails, he’ll bail out of the space venture.

What’s so great about this move? It sets Musk’s mind that failure is a viable option. This helps managing that fear.

He also knows when to quite, which is also important for every entrepreneur so not to get dragged into much higher debt.

4. You wake up early

Most successful people love to start their days early.

This is because, they find mornings are the best time to get as many difficult tasks done as the brain is fresh and able to perform at higher degree.

If you start in the morning, you’ll also find that you get to get things done earlier – so you can spend the rest of the day doing other activities.

5. You surround yourself with great people

You are who you surround yourself with.

I believe this makes sense just by reading the title.

If your friends like to talk or do things that waste time; you’ll end up like one.

If your friends like to talk about ideas, opportunities, or investment; you’ll end up like one.

Start networking with people who are better than you today to get started.

6. You don’t complain

Complaining or whining is a waste of time and breath.

And yet, people still do it – because some supposedly experts on mental health issues say that it’s actually a good thing to vent your anger or frustration.

Guess what? This makes people who listen to them more of a whiner.

By the way, if these mental health experts are correct, then, how come we’re seeing increase in chronic mental health problems – whereas the mental health experts are at its most advanced stage in human history.

My advise? Stop complaining and carry on with life. You need to do something to take your mind off your worldly problems. Everyone’s got problems – deal with it like every other human being in mankind’s history.

There’s a saying “An idle mind is the devil’s playground.”

How can you learn faster?

Advertisements
  1. Stay single. Let’s be honest, you can can get more things done without getting distracted from being in a relationship. Relationships can be emotionally and physically tiring – an energy which you could save and be invested into learning instead. I know this is not for everyone – move on if feel so!
  2. Start your day early. I always find the most productive time to get most things done are in the mornings. Our brains (and body) are fresh from hours of sleep raring to start the day. If you had a good deep sleep, your performance in the morning is going to be much better.
  3. Put your mobile phones on silent mode when working. How often do you check your phone during work? Often. Remove the distraction by putting it on silent mode while at work and you’ll see the level of productivity will improve.
  4. A nice trick I’d use to stay focus is to simply have a pen or pencil in your hand – ready to take notes of what you’re reading. The pen acts as a focus point for you to not easily get distracted by your surroundings. It sounds trivial, but it’s not. Try to give it a shot.
  5. I used to think that I’m able to work well with accompanying music. I was wrong. It started off well, at first. But as years go by, I began to realize some of the things I read did not really materialized. As it turns out, our brain is only able to process limited amount of info at a time. In short, try to minimize the distractions around you to ensure your brain processes what you’re reading or studying.
  6. Don’t rely on video lectures or tutorials completely. Don’t get me wrong. Videos are great – for introductory levelled people. To become a learned person, you still need to go the old fashion way – which is to read books or e-books. In fact, audio books are great too if you prefer it that way. I know I do.
  7. Again, who you associate yourself with plays important part here. Try to avoid or minimize contact with people who you feel demotivate you from studying or working. Peer pressure or their influence can be very dangerous. It’s infectious.
  8. Don’t be discouraged when a person is able to read 30 pages in an hour. Most of these people are able to do so due to constant training of reading. So, start spending more time reading – give it some time.
  9. Visit Quora.com to enhance your knowledge further. Quite frankly, it’s one of the best sites to keep your knowledge up to date. Most people there prefer discussions – not argument which I find very rare these days.

4 Ways to Increase YouTube Watch Time

ANIMATED INFOGRAPHICS 1 (1)

Structure Playlists to Drive a Linear Viewing Experience

Create playlists for your Youtube videos in order to guide future viewers toward more viewings and longer watch time.

Organize your playlists to covers topics of your niche.

First, create a playlist that demonstrates all your top-performing videos. By focusing all your best videos in one playlist, audience retention is more likely to occur and eventually, they will subscribe.

You should also create more playlists that fit well with more specific topics in your niche. For example, let’s say you own a channel that focuses on online marketing. Create playlists that focus on subtopics of ‘online marketing’ such as ‘youtube marketing’, ‘instagram marketing’, ‘twitter marketing’ and so on.

Don’t forget to fully customize each playlist that fit the subtopics; add suitable thumbnail, edit the description focused on keywords etc.

When you organize the videos in such sequences, viewers will more likely to watch other videos to find out what more you have to say. Ultimately, this will boost your watch time, which helps elevate your ranking on Youtube.

Choose Titles and Thumbnails That Accurately Reflect Your Content

The combination of titles and thumbnails can potentially impact your views and rankings on Youtube. Both act as the main trigger for people to click on your videos.

YouTube’s Creator Academy offers these suggestions for creating clickable thumbnails:

  • Choose an image that accurately reflects the content of your video so viewers know what to expect when they click. It’s important not to mislead viewers, because they’ll be more likely to be disappointed and stop watching.
  • Design an image that will compel viewers to click and see more.
  • Use both the thumbnail and title to tell an intriguing story.
  • Make sure your thumbnails will work effectively on both mobile and desktop.
  • Look at the Audience Retention reports for your videos to measure the effectiveness of your thumbnails. If you see a sharp drop off in the first 10-15 seconds, your video may not be delivering on the expectations suggested by the title and thumbnail.
  • Your thumbnail, title, and description should give potential viewers a good reason to watch your video over others in your niche.

Use Cards Throughout Your Videos

Cards are useful to keep viewers engaged by linking to other videos on your Youtube channel that they might be interested in.

For example, you can add cards exactly before the time in the video when viewers are most likely to drop off. You can figure out when exactly viewers drop off using Analytics.

Create Content Based on Long-Tail YouTube Keywords

Focusing on long-tail Youtube keywords can help you gain more viewers to watch your videos.

Initially, you can start researching for keywords by using Youtube’s suggestions feature in their search box. All you need to do is to type in a word your audience is interested, and a list of dropdown suggesting related keywords come up.

Then, take down these keywords so you can add later in your video tags when you upload content.

I wrote more about this here: How To Find The Right Keywords

You can also visit your competitors’ channels and pay attention to their top performing videos. Take note of the keywords and replicate the videos that fit to your audience.
