I had been busy lately working different web designing projects as a part of my freelance.
I enjoy doing what i do, both as an empower network affiliate and as a freelance web designer / developer in Oman.
A couple of months back i have been having a really hard time managing both, as i got some big gigs as a freelancer (not complaining) and i wasn't active as i used to be.
so my fitness was taking a route to the south (i don't know if its even a sensible phrase, i'm Indian and frankly who cares if the route south sentence make any sense...lol)
I always had a plan to start with FocusT25, the latest workout by Shaun T as i crushed Insanity last year. I surely would go for insanity, once again. Its more fun to go back on the "insaniac" track.
One thing i know about fitness is that without nutrition your workout regime is just like a derailed train.
Now getting all workouts, supplements (if any) and all your meals at the right time is insanely harder than the workout unless you pre-plan efficiently.
I know am talking alot about fitness and if you are a couch potato guy, you can learn a thing or two from here....just saying...
So last year when i managed to do insanity, i found out myself slacking off in getting my meals in and since i didnt get the right kind of fuel to get through the workout, my fitness suffered a little bit.
Hold on. i'll come back to how this connects with blogging...
As i did insanity, overtime i experimented a method which would help me get my nutrition at the right time of the day, instead of getting my hands on a pizza or some crap like that...
Pizza lovers...sorry...no offense... 😛
What i did was, over the weekend i did my shopping getting all the stuff i need for my diet and prepared each of my meal for a week before hand...
which means, while you do insanity in one day you will have to eat a minimum 5 meals, which includes 3 main meals and 2 snacks.
The reason they recommend to eat 5 meals a day is because it increases your metabolism rate and help you burn fat off....thats a lil tip for my couch mates.. 😉
The 3 meals includes the good old breakfast, lunch & dinner. The first 2 are manageable but i usually slack off on the 3rd & the 4th meal of the day, the lunch & snack.
so during my weekend i'll be preparing 2 x 7 meals so those 2 meals are taken care of for each day.
I put those meals in separate bowls in which i label the bowl with the day and meal number, so i can just grab each bowl every morning and go to work with zero worry about slacking off on my diet.
It might be hard, but its worth it.
Not to mention my end results are the workout was great too.
Now to the part where it all makes sense with blogging.
Blogging is crucial for you to make money online a.k.a generate leads and convert to sales but blogging could be tedious like meals in the workout example.
If not taken care of, it could derail your marketing efforts. The prime aim of marketing on the internet is to get yourself out there through your blog, your personality (quirks and weirdness included) & your VALUE!!
Blogging daily seems like a hard task but its very simple if you have some spare time. Like lets just say, you have a full time job and you have nothing else to do after work other than prepare dinner and sleep or maybe workout...
You can easily spare 2 hours for both blogging and marketing included.
If you are like me, you might have to use 'kitchen organizing method' on your blogging.
This works seemingly well if you are using the wordpress blogging platform.
In your weekends, you could spend one day jotting down different post titles that will attract your target market and in a bracket write the actual topic on which you will be writing about.
A simple kitchen organizing method which made my blogging efforts easy (Easier Blogging/auto-blogging)
You can jot down a minimum of 5 post titles on various topics, ofcourse based on the niche you choose.
In a wordpress platform,
Open up your wordpress blog and click on posts > Add New Post and blog like a renegade.
In wordpress you have an ability to set the article to go live on a specific date. If you are a typing your first article, set it up to publish the article a specific date and go on doing the same until you finish the articles.
Now you can spend the rest of the days of the week concentrating on your life activities, lets say a job (probably because you want to build your empower network business) or workout or whatever.
It started getting totally badass when you keep posting articles and you get traffic to your blog. We are talking about automated income from your blog, when you were probably spending time with your partner or kids or having fun and living life.
In a blogbeast platform,
sorry to be the barer of bad news, but it ain't that bad....as always i've got your back
in the blogbeast, you do not get the auto-posting feature, instead you could make a slight adjustment to the 'kitchen organization plan'.
In your weekend or whenever you have your creative juices flowing, you could pull out laptop and start writing an article in Word and save it in your hard drive.
Caution: Be careful to save it in a drive where your operating system is not installed. (I'm little bit of an IT geek too....you should be knowing that by now...lol). If your hard drive crashed because of some reason, you want your work to be safe.
So at this point all you have to do is to post each article daily and on the blog beast platform. You are not spending the usual 2 hours like you would have to but instead you are just merely copying and pasting your own content on the platform for the world to see.
I usually use the blogbeast for training my team...its a perfect platform for training my members, which means if you are joining me, am right there in your back office helping you succeed online.
Now if you are an avid reader of my blog, then you could be wondering, what about marketing your blog post?
To those folks, thank you for being such an avid reader. I really appreciate it. For those folks, who are new to FastlaneMLM, welcome and i'm looking forward to seeing you in the avid reader's club.
To answer the possible question of my peeps, on wordpress platform marketing is taken care of all by itself. Thats right, you can save an hour worth of marketing and content sharing just the moment to you hit the publish button on the wordpress article poster.
Your content would just go on all social media accounts you have linked it with and easing your marketing efforts greatly.
For BlogBeast users, sorry buddy. No donuts for you here.
Although as solution for both platforms, you can always rely on a paid service called PostPlanner or OnlyWire to ease your marketing efforts.
Its just an option, not mandatory. I take my business real serious so i wouldn't mind spending some extra time on spreading the word everywhere as much as possible.
Remember, motivation and the sheer willingness to help and be of service as many people as possible will bring you success.
Just finished my double chocolate at costa...hmm..!! Really gets your creative juice flow.
