Consistency

That one word discussed less often. People talk about Goals, give examples, create noises and vanish. But interestingly nobody talks about play field. Goals when set are not achieved. This happen more than often because then our concentration goes to goal post and bypass everything in between. Let me tell you an incident.
I started a blog, thought let's see if I will get visitor, few visitor happen.
I started running Google adsense, thought let's see if I can get advertisement. It started happening.
I thought let's do more post and see how everything changes. Visitor started increasing.
I thought because I work alone, lets see what will happen if I do quality post. Blog start booming.
I started making Good money, sufficient to live in any Indian City. And here started my bad days.
For few days I was out of work. At this point out of nothing no solid reasons because I was away and blog earnings were less
I thought how to make more money, I shifted my focus from audience to money. Today I am earning zero.
I focused on goal instead of play field, result, blog is broke.
I am sure if I have taken it up from the point where it was left, it may have gained momentum again. But I did mistake. However, let me tell you, this was also my testing part, I was willing to know how it will work. There is huge noise in the world about making money I took risk and found goal is not important than play field. When you are in the field goals will happen.
Consistency is not about never stay out of the play field. At times it happens and we loss hope and become victims of our own frustrations.
If you discontinue a task for some reason but this is your task which is left undone start again from the point at which you have left before. Consistency is to focus on play field, not on goals. If you are in the field goals will happen.
Let me share with you one more story.
I was good learner, if you say super I will love it. Since childhood I was told my uncle was a Gold medalist twice in academics. It become a goal for me to wil Gold medal, I never got one because my focus was medal not the field. Today I know this. And I am pretty sure.  Play field was study but my orientation changes slowly slowly as I grown up, like any other teen I was also too excited and that excitement killed everything.
Heck, nobody told how uncle did at home and playground.
That is a top secret I am not going to tell you anyway.
Because I lost, I lost gold medal, I won't like if another child also loose it.
In business and business of life often we become victim of information overload.
Let not that happen to you.
Forget this article.

Psychology of bargain

In this part of continent 'India' bargain happens around everything. No matter how much you are honest in pricing the customer or how low you quote your price majority of consumers always think if they can get more for much less. Even if you offer a free stuff chances are you will be taken for granted. And you cannot control it. If you are a seller you cannot control the buyers behavior. But yes you can control the sellers behavior. No, not by changing the sellers attitude but by changing yourself.

Why landing page is a must for your blog

Convert … Convert … Convert…

If you are not converting your blog traffic, if your audiences are not asking you to write more and if they are not downloading your ebooks, then you are not blogging it right. Without conversion blogging is purposeless.

Blogging is most popular means of saying your words to public, getting attention and generating leads. Often many bloggers fail in converting traffic; sometimes they do not create a landing page or do it very casually. Result; very low level of conversion or none at all. Half of the bloggers are a fail because of purpose less blogging.
