Putting Profit Tasks First During Time Management
Have you ever followed a successful marketer and heard the advice to ìwork on money tasks first?î Itís a common theme among entrepreneurs, but itís one very few newbies embrace naturally.
Time management issues are hard enough as it is. Youíre juggling so many things in life such as parenting duties, relationships, household chores, your health and maybe even a second offline career.
When you start looking at the sheer number of tasks you have to do to succeed at an online business, it can feel overwhelming at times. For example, you have to conduct niche and keyword research, create content, build relationships as a leader in your niche, seek out and review products, create your own products and more.
So one thing you may have done is enacted a strict time management system to help you balance your work and home life where you can get more done each day. Thatís a good first step – but are you doing it right?
Time management wonít work if youíre working on all the wrong things during the precious minutes or hours you have to contribute toward your business. You have to make sure your list is prioritized.
Profit tasks are at the top of the list for most successful online entrepreneurs. They have other things that have to get done, but profits are first and foremost. This is perfect because when profits are flowing, you can afford to get some of the tasks off your plate through outsourcing.
What would a profit task be compared to a non profit task? A profit task might be to review someone elseís product and notify your list with your affiliate link. Or it might be to create a bonus to help you win a cash prize in a promotion contest.
Other tasks need to get ñ but they may have a direct profit impact, aside from an overall elevation of your online business. This might be something like researching something interesting to post to your social networking pages.
Maybe youíre in the survival niche and a cool gadget is releasing that day. You could spend your first hour reading about and reviewing that product for actual income. Later, as time allows, you might find a cool tip on how do something in the survival and prepping world, so you share that, too. But the profit task is front and center, allowing you a little leeway to relax and be a good leader throughout the day.
