Is technology holding your back from moving your business to the next level? Are you stuck in a mode where you say to yourself, “I need to learn this on my own because if I don’t I can’t move forward?”
More times than not when you’re trying to learn a new platform, a new social media site or putting together a blog for the first time, technology is like your enemy because they can really work against you.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Technology should not limit you on building your business.
On this article I’m going to give you a couple of ways on which you can deal with technology as well as some ways you can work around it.
Let’s dive in.
As much as we want to avoid technology it is now mandatory to plug in yourself on the latest technology if you want to expand the reach of your business. Not all of them but at least a couple of them: a social media platform of preference, a self-hosted blog and an autoresponder. As you can see here, it can be costly.
You also have to consider the new updates that these tools are going to release which probably the most stressful part of your business.
Let’s face it, whether it’s internet marketing or corporate job or anything, technology can be your biggest frustration.
In order to minimize your stress with technology there’s two ways that you can do really deal with it.
All By Myself, Don’t Wanna Be
The first one is the one that a lot of people do and say, “Just do it yourself.” And the reason a lot of us do it ourselves is because of financial reasons; you don’t want to spend a lot of money and not get the results you’re looking for.
There’s also those people that you can find on the internet who have had bad experiences with web designers and this cause a lot of people to become hesitant to outsource something.
While this is a valid reason a lot of times the reason you’re getting stuck is because you want to do it yourself and by doing that you a creating a lot of stress in your business that leads to frustration and inevitably inaction.
So if you’re the type of person that really wants to it on your own but feels like you’re getting stuck, here’s something that I learned that I want to share with you.
The moment you feel that you’re stuck on something that you’re doing, immediately step away from it. Let your mind process and let the thing that you’re trying to accomplish sink in. Remove yourself from it for a moment. You can go out for a walk or do something that will remove yourself from that particular activity.
Doing it yourself is going to take you twice as long. You have to be patient and be committed on a daily basis in what you’re doing.
Let Me Do It For You
The second thing that you could do is to outsource it. This is really the best thing that you can do. Outsource what you don’t know to somebody else.
You’ve got a couple of options that are fairly inexpensive:
Upwork (Previously oDesk) – this is a great resource if you’re looking to have somebody that can help you build your website.
Fiverr – you can find people here that will do projects for you for as low as $5.
Don’t let technology stop you from taking such work, get messy. Get messy, get dirty, make the stakes, be sloppy because it’s going to allow you to have a better story in a year and two years now, you look back and say, “You know what? My first blog suck.” And that’s okay because that’s part of your learning process.
Now talking about blogging and website building, did you know that you can have both of these “done-for-you” and for FREE when you tap in to the platform that I’m currently using?
