Hi there and welcome to 2010 where a new year should bring a bout of renewed energy and enthusiasm into your blogging and marketing efforts. If last year was a good year for you, that’s great, but why not intend to make this year an even better one!
Far too many people get to a certain level then think to themselves, that they have reached their goal and now its time to take their foot off the gas, sit back with hands folded behind their head and take things easy from hereon. That would be fine if you could guarantee that your business will chug along happily on autopilot and keep pace with inflation while its about it. But what business does that?
What’s more likely is that even if you have websites or blogs sitting firmly rooted to the top of the Google SERPs getting plenty of traffic and converting into some decent coin, there is no guarantee they’ll be there doing that tomorrow. In fact, while making your living online can be one of the most satisfying ways there is, it can also be the most volatile with regards to stability.
So it would be a foolish person indeed who thinks they can sit back and take things easy just because things are going so well right now. You could be looking the other way for a week or so and without any warning, someone else who might have been working their sweet behind off to take their site to the top of your keywords, will come along with their website and take all your traffic. It happens and it will continue to happen, whatever niche you’re working in. Nothing is safe and there is no niche that you can dominate that someone else with better resources might want to come along and take from you.
So prevent that from happening by keeping a wary eye on your business and its websites and blogs and if they’re ranking well, then keep working to make them rank better and make it difficult for anyone else to overtake you.
Here’s to making your own success!
