Consistency is extremely important if you want to make it as an entrepreneur. Especially when you just started your business. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you have. If you advertise or are on Facebook pages people will only remember you when or if they see your name on regular basis. Which means you have to be out there. Every day at least once.
If you are not out there, if you are not consistent in bringing your name out, people will forget you. In my case if I am on a Facebook page once in a while to advertise my oils nobody will remember my name. Simply because it is not a common name, which makes it difficult to remember.They will remember my products and as soon as they decide to try an oil or if they like to sign up, they will find someone else.
So post something. Every day, at the same time. Like my blog. And as soon as it is published I have it appear on Twitter and Facebook too. So if I don’t make a post on my facebook page, I still have something. It doesn’t matter if it has anything to do with my business. They will see my name.
I know it is difficult to keep up with that. When I started I just had no clue what to write about. But for some reason I seem to find a subject every day. Or more once a week. Because that is the nice thing of all these social media platforms. You can schedule posts. When I am on a roll I just keep going. And you don’t have to make essays. Just an inspirational quote or something you just did or experienced is enough.
But I am not perfect and like last week I just lacked the motivation to do something. And before you know it a week has passed. Waste of time? Yes. But don’t beat yourself up over it. Pick up yourself and start again. It won’t be the last time something happens like that. It will happen over and over again.The time in between will just be longer and longer. And that is what you need to achieve. That is what you need to keep going. Especially in that dreaded first year.
