To have a successful blog, grow it in an effective manner, and see profits or great attention we have to rock out in the small parts. Success is very subjective but the true success relies in on how others see you and what you are doing. We see some of the top 50 most influential bloggers having continued success. They certainly haven’t reached this big and influential stage overnight. They have rocked out in all the small areas to get their rocking initial community.
Today we focus on everything small in order to truly go big.
Excellence is in the details. Give attention to the details and excellence will come. -Perry Paxton
I’ve truly struggled with this thought because I just want to go big!
Well, you are not going to get anywhere unless you focus on everything small (more than just simply looking at things like your content and your community). I always ask myself this one question: why do I want to rock out at this particular thing? The answer is typically because I see myself making a true impact on something that is not being done right, correctly, or just not happening.
These reasons are usually the ones that we have in wanting to start something new. But, we need to focus!
Start with Your Overall USP
- Listen to your own voice and look at it from an outside perspective
- Why should people come to you for help, advice, or entertainment?
- Relate back to your initial mission. Let them be aware of your mission in many ways
Rob Rammuny from Robswebtips believes strongly in having a strong USP and from my many failures on the web since 2008 I truly failed because I never really created or focused on my USP. I just wanted to go big. Your USP is just one of many details that you need to have established in order to go big.
Just read what many of these top entrepreneurs wished that would have done here.
Build One Dream
I have a dream. No I’m not Martin Luther King Jr. but I am a geek and blogger that has a dream for creating a network of sites. You’ve got to start somewhere with your USP so I’ve put 110% of my voice and passion into UniqueBlog.net.
Yes, its just one blog and it’s not even my personal blog, where I just tend to write random ideas or thoughts on things. What’s important is that you focus on one dream. As of right now I have three major dreams:
- Be in a relationship with someone special and grow that each and everyday we are together
- Help people understand the aspects of web to embrace for the next culture
- Consult and help people truly brand themselves
I’ve decided to focus on dream number two. Now, that I’ve made my decision I can start rocking out in everything that is small because I’m focused. I know my USP. I know my dream. Now, I just need to do everything small until its “done” and have an initial community behind me.
Build Your Initial Community
I would defiantly say to create and run multiple blogs if you have initial community. For instance, the company of Envato didn’t just make 10 successful sites at once. They were developed overtime and all were established because of one site that they truly focused on.
We need to build our initial community if we truly want to stand out from any crowd or to just rock out in anything currently or in the future.
I’m Not Big Yet. My Day is Coming Though
I’ve decided on my one dream. I’ve decided and continue to work on my unique selling proposition. Now, it’s all a matter of time to continue and create my initial community by interacting with others on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin and putting out quality content.
Yes, everything is truly a matter of time but it can be a rocking time that will push you to be big if you focus on:
- Creating and selling your USP
- Picking and building your one dream
- Building your initial community before you proceed with anything else
Everyone has the opportunity to go big. Begin the right way and expect many failures along the way.
I really want to rock out on the web. I’m making the promise that you’ll be hearing about me next year! Your day is almost here too!
