1. Getting customers to try a product that hasn’t launched yet
is harder than you think is exactly as hard as it sounds.
2. Create value now in order to reap rewards later.
This one is obvious, and should have been even more obvious to someone who considers himself a pretty good gardener, and yet because it feels like a race (as you approach the launch date) you always expect results to come in all the time. But like the seeds you set below the surface, sometimes it seems like nothing is happening at all. If you ignore the seeds you may never see the shoots. Likewise, if you stop creating value (because you haven’t seen any results), you will probably never see any positive results.
Similar to what I’ve learned using social media, there is no easy way to build a following. It is (in some ways) hard work and success is hard won. You only get to where you’re going by having faith that what you’re doing is the right thing to build an audience.
3. Make goals every day.
How do you stay productive? Do you have a system?
4. Create traditions.
What are your traditions?
5. Celebrate your wins, no matter how small.
These keep you going.
A big shout out to Darryl Ohrt of Brand Flakes for Breakfast fame and Bill Green of Make the Logo Bigger – I believe you both put me in touch with the awesome stock photos I have been digging via Awkward Stock Photos.
