A 30 day sprint! Are You Ready?
Business success is a marathon… pace yourself…
Intermediate goals however often require a sprint to help us get up the hill!
Whether it is a 90 day focus to a single blog, or a 30 day video challenge, or a 30 day blog post/content challenge…
Sprints, coupled with strong accountability… can help add some much needed fire to your business!
My first introduction to this was the 30 day video challenge I participated in as part of the TMI class I took. I actually can’t say I completed that challenge successfully but it definitely did it kickstart my use of video and get me comfortable with the technology.
It also made serious amounts of traction for my friends Beth Allen and Don Enck who completed it! Those two rockstars really came out of the gate shining by buckling down and sweating through the effort involved in the challenge!
My BFF, the Goddess known as Jacqueline Gates, had been going back and forth with the idea of starting a 30 day blogging challenge to get some extra fire built. Like anything that looks like work, we were both finding ourselves giving in to the temptation to procrastinate and squirm our way out of it till “maybe next week”. I don’t know about you but I have yet to see “next week” ever get here!
So yesterday we decided to bite the bullet and call “GAME ON”!!
The element of challenge must be in the air at the moment, as I saw SEVERAL posts in the last few days regarding people starting similar challenges. One of those is Amanda Marie who has some really awesome prizes shes going to be dishing up too!
Our goal mostly was new business content and to draw some of our traffic from Facebook back onto our blogs. Because our challenge and hers is very similar we may run hers as part of our own or some such. Honestly the mechanics don’t matter as long as the results are the same – new content… blog, ezine, articles, live events… that don’t draw traffic away from our blogs.
Many people that we see struggling to get traffic are blogging at the absolute bare minimum of once a week. Once a week is the amount you blog to not fall off the bicycle on a flat stretch of easy road. If you want to get up the hill, you have to put some muscle behind it and that means regular posting! No Excuses!
This is strictly honor system and we invite you to join us! Come share, participate, syndicate and lets have some fun as we set these blogs on fire over the next 30 days!
PS: Don’t give any worry to a late start, we’re more than happy to have you join us regardless, just bite the bullet and DO IT!
