Does your online business have a system?
Yes, I know. Even the word “system” conjures up in your mind words like “repetition”, “rules”, “regulations”, and (oh no!) “o.r.d.e.r.”
Many entrepreneurs do not like the idea of systems – a regular routine. I’m here to tell you firsthand that without systems in place your business will stall at the very least and collapse completely at the very worst.
How do astronauts get to the moon?
Checklists. That’s how. And how do pilots get planes in the air and arrive safely at their destination? Same way. How many of you would get into a plane if you thought the pilot had not cleared his checklist and if all the plane’s systems weren’t cleared? I don’t see any hands!
All systems GO!
It’s exactly the same with your online biz! Your system consists of the routine tasks, done daily, weekly, and monthly that push your business into orbit.
For example. . . .
Here are a few on your “must do” checklist:
- Submit fresh content to your site.
- E-mail your clients and prospects regularly.
- Make your product offers frequently.
- Promote your products (there’s a whole system within this one step!)
- Customer service support.
In other words . . . .
The highly successful online business owner has a system in place. Just like an astronaut. Or a pilot. “All systems go” means smooth sailing. Means all the small systems are working together for the good of the whole.
As mundane as it may seem, systems are the key to making your business fly.
Is your business moving forward? If not, you now know why.
Go, work your system!
