You’ve all heard me preach this time and time again… the key to a successful SEO strategy is content. But knowing your limits is just as important. If you’re like me, you think you can do everything yourself. Update my blog and website every day? Sure, nooooo prooooblem! It’s only like 30 minutes a day right?
Two months later and you’ve done 1 blog post and change a picture on your website.
Not to beat a dead horse, but you can’t put a price on the importance of time management in the Internet marketing industry. If you’re handling multiple clients, multiple issues, multiple sites, it’s almost impossible to actively market yourself and maintain/update your online web presence at the same time.
Tip: outsource to writers and bloggers. Post an ad on Craigslist. Capitalize on the slow economy, plenty of people are looking for extra cash. It’s better to sped a few bucks and stay on top of things than it is to fall behind to your competition because their workload is slow ad they have time to write and develop.
I’ll never hire anyone to write on this blog, this will always be my personal opinions and tips. But when it comes to work for clients, I tell them on a daily basis: don’t try to do everything yourself. Find some help (and make sure whoever you find knows what they’re talking about). Writers don’t grow on trees, but if you take some time to network and find the right person/people, they’ll pay off ten fold in the long run.
