You work, sweat, curse, stumble, maybe even cry. Your family thinks you neglect them and you feel like garbage from too many late nights and the saturation of caffeine in your blood from the coffee that you use as a stimulant. Your life is teetering between insanity and stability.
Then you find success.
Sounds like a dream come true right? Well, it is. And it’s not that hard to achieve. Most success stories come from hard work and tenacity, not just dreaming about what could be. Those that do well for themselves do so through hard work and often without even noticing what exactly they are doing. Once they become recognized for what they do, it’s a salute to all their hard times and hard work. This can be you if you work hard enough.
But it can go a step further, too. You might find yourself not only successful, but popular as well. As with anyone who does well, there will be others who seek you out for your secrets. Sometimes they come with checkbooks and very lucrative offers. This is a great position for you to be in. But it can be a bit troublesome as well. You have to know what you can do for them and how to make a solid business arrangement, and deliver those agreed-upon services promptly. In online marketing, and especially helping other businesses with improving their web sites, you have lot of options here and can focus on offering your best services in a variety of ways.
A lot of successful business types in the business world get started in outsourcing their skills in creative fields. If they have the gift of words, they often can contribute content copywriting services to other business web sites. If they have the gift of design strategies, they can do contract work for newsletter and catalogue design. Often they can also introduce new creative functions to web sites like pop-ups or videos. In any case, these could all be things that you are good at and can use when people call on you to make their web sites better. It’s a fun way to help someone else out.
Going a step further, you can actually assist other business pros with their web sites up front. A lot of business people think that a web site is just an easy weekend project that they can put together quickly and expect it to work properly. Likely, you know better. Hence you might be called upon or contracted out to outline and execute some web site design services that can make an existing business’ web site go from pond-sized to ocean-sized. Along with these web site design services, you may be good at certain web site housekeeping to keep your business continually in motion online. Others might note this and offer you a web site maintenance contract where you access their web site and keep it as fortified as your own by updating their web site regularly. This might be a bit more responsibility for you, but it has great dividends in the end.
What really hits home with a lot of peer business groups is seeing how you’ve perfected your own corporate design identity. Through a strong web site and all its associated online mechanisms, you have made a real imprint on the Web with your business and are respected in your field. When others see this, they will want it, too. You can be greatly rewarded for outlining and implementing a corporate design identity strategy for other businesses that, like you, want to achieve something through leaving a strong professional mark with their online business, a strong web site, etc.
You might think of yourself as just an online businessperson, but you might be able to add the title of “consultant” to your resume once you become great at what you do. Having mastered the science of online business and being able to create a strong, professional web site will make you the go-to pro for others. Others who will always make it worth your while.
