Create Content by Recording Your Problems

…..And Solutions

Each of us solves problems almost on daily basis. Problems are part of life and provide us a chance to get a mental thrill by winning them over.

 

Mostly we come across a problem, look for solutions and either solve them successfully or surrender to them.

In either case we get moving and tend to forget the situation.

I have done that so many times. Next time I have a problem, I again look for solutions again. Until I started to record them.

The drawback of this approach is that we do not document the problem and the solution so that we have a ready reference for the future.

So times later when the problem strikes again, we are still searching for a solution.

Not only the documentation of problem and the solution can help you to build a future reference but also help you to create content.

Just keep reading. So next time you face a problem, just note that in a diary or Word file.

When you have a solution, note the solution in detail underneath the problem.

If you are unable to find a solution, note that too.

It would be a good idea to segregate the solved and unsolved issues.

Just keep adding the matter to your files/diaries whenever you have a problem.

It may be any problem…

Few examples are

  1. Where to get free photos on the net?
  2. How to create dashing logos for free?
  3. How to add a text to WordPress sidebar?
  4. How to edit a photograph?
  5. How to upload a file?
  6. Add your own list

As you expand your file, you might want to categorize your problems further.

You are creating a ready reference.

Plus you have a killer idea file. If you faced a problem, many other people would too have faced the same.

And looking for the answers.

Thus, you have a great content ideas. Just add a little research to ech of your problems and you are on your way to produce killer articles, blog posts, ebooks and videos.

Your unsolved problems also offer a unique advantage. You can create solutions and sell them.

All you need to see first is the demand.

How do you deal with your problems. Do you record them?

Looking for Quick Money- It Does Not Exist

coins

Especially if you are newbie

coinsIt is bit ironical, isn’t it! All the quick cash generation scheme are aimed to entice and trap newbie.

It does not matter who is selling it and it does not matter how automated the system is.

There is no way  to earn quick and lazy bucks. This is especially true if you are just starting.

We often get baffled by the promises of sales letters. Hitherto unknown people discovering more and more cash generating systems that give you almost instant money.

Look! A sales letter is written to woo you. To suit your fancies and make you buy the item.

But remember the underline.

No costly or cheap, automated system can work for you if you are not willing to work.

Instant cash or quick cash or lazy money is only a concept. Do not get into the word trap.

You can not earn sitting in front of your computer doing nothing.

When somebody says that she has made money overnight, she comfortably skips the hard work done on previous nights.

When somebody claims in his sales letter  that there is threefold increase in the subscribers after applying a small trick, she would never say how much work input is required.

By playing with words and tinkering with sentences, you can say a lot of things that do not alter facts and still appear magical.

Let us get straight on this issue.

Do not pour your money on these systems. They are not going to help you if you do not know what are you going to do with them.

Take an example.

Somebody has discovered a new Clickbank cash generating formula that she is willing to share with you because she wants to hep you make money. With that said she also tells you that she was slogging and struggling to make money before she hit upon the formula.

She is willing to let you know the formula so that you can copy her success system.

She may not have said anything wrong in these sentences. It builds  background that attracts the struggling marketers and offers them a solution which they can benefit from.

The biggest question that we fail to ask ourselves is-

Do I need it?

If you are struggling with Clickbank products, you my be benefited from it.

But if you think that you have stumbled upon a great way to make quick cash, you are making wrong choice.

You are eying on the cash, not a solution to your problem.

You leave everything that you had built and start working on Clickbank. You do not see the results because you have just started. You get frustrated.

You see another opportunity and the cycle is repeated.

Stop this, I may plead to you.

Do not waste your money.

There is no quick cash, there is no such system.

Buy the things you need, stop buying hopes and fantasies

You need to build a system yourself. Focus on one money generating method,  be it Adsense or afilliate marketing. Start wirking and improving on it.

Money would take time but it would arrive.

May be you can build a system to sell. :-)

How to Stay Motivated and Blog

empathy can make you better blogger

empathy can make you better bloggerOne of the most difficult things considered in blogging is establishing a blogging routine. Creating and following a routine requires self imposed self discipline and one needs to stay motivated.

Motivation is defined as  the activation or energization of goal-oriented behavior.

In simple terms it is the zeal that makes you work on the activities that would bring good results.

A child working hard to get more marks in the exams because he likes when his peers and parents praise his achievement is getting motivated by the thought of accolades. It pushes him to study extra hour, cut his sleep and avoid temptations like play and television.

Working Against Odds!

It is easy to get motivated when people tell you that you are on right path and success would come to you eventually etc etc.

But online business becomes a different issue altogether. Most of people do not understand the concept. Still that does not stop them from making judgements.

You might be in your job and this extra toil after you come home may be making your family wonder, what is happening.

They would give you some time after listening to your reasons but when they fail to see the results, they question your actions.

I was lucky enough that I started my ventures when I was lived in a hostel alone. I could devote all the time after my hospital works were over to learning the things that I would require. I am not very outgoing person and that helped.

Looking back, I now feel that had I moved on a path rather than exploring things, I would be ahead by a year now.

But it could not have been a different than what it had been. It was more of a hobby. I do not clearly remember when I became so motivated to establish myself  in online world.

But I think it was when I started seeing real money. My first earning was $1.62.

That was quite motivating. All I needed was to shift the decimal to right and add zeroes.

Simple! Isn’t it.

No! Adding zeroes is a tough task.

It involves a lot of hard work. That is where motivation plays a role. It sustains you against all the odds.

Why People Stay Motivated?

Motivation may be rooted in the basic need to minimize physical pain and maximize pleasure. It may also be caused by include specific needs such as eating and resting, or a desired object, hobby, goal, state of being, ideal etc.

Sometimes, it may be attributed to less-apparent reasons such as altruism, morality etc.

What Is The Reason You Are Here?

Why are you in blogging or wanting to start one? There could be plenty of reasons. But all of them can be grouped into one of these causes.e Let us see

  • You do not like your job and want to explore the possibility of making money online and eventually leave your job.
  • You like your job but it is always good to earn extra money
  • You do not have a job/lost job and do not want to get employed/not getting employed, so you thought…

Whatever the reason may be, you need to work and you need to stay motivated.

Types of Motivations

Intrinsic motivation

Intrinsic motivation comes from rewards inherent to a task or activity itself – the enjoyment of a puzzle or the love of playing.

If you like what you do, that becomes a cause for working more. If something gives you enjoyment, you tend to come back more often.

This is the best form of motivation. You need to enjoy your work  to produce more. For example you love writing about gardening and you have a blog which you use to publish articles about gardening.

Because the process of writing itself gives you pleasure, you tend to write often, making your blog stand out.

Extrinsic Motivation

Extrinsic motivation comes from outside of the performer. Money, coercion and threat of punishment, pleasure are few of the causes of extrinsic motivation.

So you have a good blog on gardening and you want to make a lot of money. This motivation would make you to look for ways you can earn money with that blog.

You would try different ways to make money and eventually see the money come.

You share it with your family and friends and they all are in awe. But they take your business seriously now. You are an achiever in their eyes. This becomes another motivation.

So basic rule is enjoy what you do and gear for maximizing revenue. You get motivated enough to win the world.
