Get Out of Your Career Rut

Do you want to take your business to the next level but don’t feel very brave?

Many people think that because the UK is officially still in a recession, it is not the time to take risks or move out of their comfort zone. The media is constantly reminding us that the economy is struggling, there is increasing joblessness, and financial woes.

I am not disputing that it feels like there are challenging times ahead. But I also believe that the way we approach life impacts on the way we project ourselves in both our day to day lives and career.

Let me be blunt, for many people the threat of the recession on jobs is a good excuse for not doing anything about being fed up at work. It is easy to stay with your existing employer, stay in a job you don’t like, or put up excuses like those I have mentioned above. You may think that more companies are making redundancies, fewer organisations are recruiting and more people are applying for the small number of jobs that are being advertised, or it is easier to keep your head down with your current employer to avoid facing redundancy.

In the current economy, it doesn’t stop the brave from making big choices, taking changes, setting up new businesses or facing new employment, it just takes courage, bravery and confidence to take the next step.

How would it be if you could be successful, step out of your comfort zone and live the life you desire?

How would you feel if you could face the next year with the mindset that you know you will be successful?

To kick start your next steps in 2010, here are my top tips.

1. If there are less people applying for jobs that are being advertised, why don’t you become one of them? If you can show how you stand out from the crowd, you will be in great demand for the role.

2. If you want to change your career, take some time to understand your transferrable skills and strengths. Then research the opportunities available to you.

3. Improve your networks. Develop great contacts with people who can help you to source the job or career you desire, or put you in touch with influential people.

4. Find out what organisations are hiring staff at the moment and apply to them direct. If they are attempting to cut costs, you never know, you may be the right person at the right time.

5. Ensure that your CV is up to date as it is a great marketing tool that demonstrates why you are the best person for a job. When you are applying for jobs, make sure it reflects what is required within that role.

Writing Articles to Generate Traffic, Links and Grow Your Online Business

As an Internet marketer article writing is one of the top list building generation and link popularity techniques that you can use because it is providing your target niche audience with valuable keyword rich content. By using techniques like this to attract visitors to your websites you will begin to not only develop opt ins for your list building measures but also be able to work on relationship building with them so they will buy your products.

Writing Articles to Generate Traffic, Links and Grow Your Online Business

If you have been writing articles as he traffic generation techniques, at this point possibly you are writing several articles a day, and not only have a fresh stream of traffic to your web site from the articles you are writing, but you should also have a squeeze page set up for email list opt ins, and you should have created an email campaign.

Like anything with Internet marketing, you must continue to market your business on a daily basis. This is the same for article writing where you must submit at the least 10 articles per day and do all of the other marketing techniques along with them to give them the greatest exposure in order to build your last as much as possible. I submit on average 20 articles per day to the top online article directories. After two weeks of doing this I was attracting about 10 opt ins to my list each day. After one month that was up to 20 per day, and after two months I was up to 30 opt ins per day.

At this point, if you have followed the minimum article submission suggestions I have noted above you have built the foundation for everything else you will do with your marketing. Your link popularity with the top search engines and your niche target audience will have developed also.

One thing that is important is that the process of writing articles must continue. Your traffic will die off if you are not continually writing new articles and submitting them to the article directories, especially the top article directories with a page rank of at least five.

However, everything else that you have created, once it is created, continues to work, which is of course what leverages your time in Internet marketing and allows you to earn greater sums of income from the same amount of time. For example, once you have created a squeeze page, it continues to collect subscribers without being recreated continually.

If you want to attract prospective customers and develop your online presence and exposure, you owe it to yourself and the financial future of your business to learn everything you can about Internet marketing.
