Practical Blogging Tips You Need For Colossal Growth

Writing

Being able to create engaging content that serves a purpose is the foundation of any successful blog. As the great Bill Gates once said, ‘Content is King’ Here are 17 tips to help you boost your content strategy. 

1. Stick to what you know

It sounds obvious, but you’ll be amazed at how many people write about topics they have no sincere understanding of. When I published my tutorial on how to create your own blog, I already had four years of experience in web design under my belt as well as a few years of digital marketing experience. Stick to what you know!

2. Use BuzzSumo to see what’s popular

BuzzSumo is a content research and analysis tool that allows you to see which type of content performs the best for a particular topic or competitor. You can actually see how many shares an article has received and who shared it.

If you write about the same topic but make it even better, you could reach out to the people who shared the original article and ask them to give your new and improved article a share. You’d be surprised at how well this works.

3. Research your audience

Before you even start to think about creating a blog, you should have already defined who your audience is and what their problems are. This is going to help craft your future content and will increase the likelihood of your audience engaging with your blog.

4. Make a list of blog post ideas

Coming up with an idea for a blog post is easy. Coming up with an idea for a blog post that’s going to outrank your competitors, on the other hand, is difficult. I like to use SEMrush to find various keywords within my niche, then I create a mindmap about these keywords.

There are many different ways to come up with decent blog post ideas, but this is one of my favourites, it’s also quite fun.

5. Research your competitors 

SEMrush’s competitor analysis tool will allow you to see where your competitors are concentrating their marketing efforts, how effective their SEO tactics are, find the keywords they rank for, analysis their backlinks and much more.

6. Stick to long-form content

There’s a difference in opinions within the digital world as to how many words actually constitute as long-form content. According to Hubspot, articles with a word count of 2,250-2,500 bring in the most search traffic.

Most studies agree that you should aim for at least 1000 words, although for optimal results you should shoot for 2,500. Although content length will probably still divide opinions, one thing we can all agree on is the importance of making sure your content is actually helpful.

7. Include long-tail keywords

The use of long-tail keywords is a must if you want your content to rank highly within search engines. Long-tail keywords are usually 4 words or more and are a lot easier to rank for due to less competition.

Some of the benefits of long-tail keywords include:

  • Better targeted traffic
  • Higher conversion rates
  • Less competition

8. Create a conversation

Make your writing personal and talk to your readers by using words such as ‘I’ and ‘you’. Creating a conversation leads to a more engaged audience.

9. Back up your content with references 

Use references from authoritative sources to back up your points. Not only will it validate the point you are making, but it’s also beneficial for SEO.

10. Find a relevant featured image

We have all heard the saying, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. Well, this is especially true when it comes to creating your blog posts. Your featured image should be relevant to your content and eye-catching to your audience.

11. Try to always include a conclusion or summary

Every good blog post should include a compelling conclusion. Your conclusion is the last thing your audience will read, so really try and end on a high. A really great thing you can do is include a question in your conclusion; this will engage your readers and increase the likelihood of them returning. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I mean.

12. Optimize your layout

Your content is the most important thing on your blog. It’s therefore essential to make sure your readers are able to digest your content quickly and without any distractions.

I recommend making your blog posts full width with narrow sentences like mine is. Studies have shown that this can increase time on page by 10%.

13. Ask your audience questions

Asking your readers questions is a must if you want to build an engaged audience. As I briefly mentioned above, a great place to include a question is within your conclusion.

You can even ask your readers what type of content they want you to create. This is a great way to come up with fresh ideas.

14. Stick to evergreen content

Evergreen content is content that remains relevant despite the time it was published. If you really want to rank highly within search engines and drive traffic to your site, you should try and focus on creating evergreen content for the majority of your blog posts.

Great examples of evergreen content include:

  • How-to-content
  • Tips
  • Product reviews

15. Develop a unique voice

Developing a unique voice within your writing can set your brand apart from your competitors, build trust and could eventually be used to influence and persuade your audience.

16. Use Evernote

I use Evernote for all my writing and blog post ideas. It has many great features, one of my favourites being that it auto-saves your work and you can access your content anywhere. If you are serious about your writing, I highly recommend it.

17. Use Grammarly

Another fantastic app I recommend you use is Grammarly. Grammarly will highlight any spelling or grammar mistakes as you’re writing which is very handy. It’s also completely free of charge. 🙂

Getting your content out there

After creating your content the next step is to actually promote it and get your work out there. The internet is jammed packed full of different blogs, so your promotion needs to be on point. Here are 21 ways you can get your content out there.

1. Ensure your content is easy to share

Unfortunately creating great content isn’t enough. If you want people to read your blog posts then you have to up your marketing game. The first step is making sure your content is easy to share.

I highly recommend installing the Social Warfare plugin; I’m using it right now! It’s by far the best social media plugin I’ve used. 

2. Guest post

Guest posting involves writing articles for other websites, usually ones that are already established. Having your content published on an authoritative website will help you establish your own authority, increase brand awareness and will provide your website with backlinks.

3. Start an email list

From the very outset, you should be collecting emails from your readers. One of the most important reasons for growing an email list, in my opinion, is that it protects your business should your website crash.

If you have an email list of dedicated subscribers, you could start a new business tomorrow and you’d already have an audience.

For starting an email list I recommend you check out Mailchimp.

4. Create a lead magnet and give it away for free

This is one of my best practical blogging tips. A lead magnet is essentially an incentive you offer your audience, in exchange for their contact information, usually an email address. Remember how important I said it was to start an email list?

Offering something of value to your audience for free is an effective way of collecting emails. Here are 11 lead magnet examples.

5. Include internal links in your content

Internal links are links that point to another page on the same website. A simple and very effective SEO method.

6. Comment on other blogs

Simply commenting on other blogs can be a great way of building brand awareness and establishing yourself as an authority. Pick a few blogs that are similar to yours and leave your two cents.

7. Join communities

Try joining relevant communities on social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn groups. They’re a great way to network with like-minded people and can be an effective way to get your content out there.

8. Reach out to influential people

Simply reaching out to influential people within your niche can be very effective. Try and build a relationship first, before sending out any links.

9. Invest your time heavily in SEO

Search Engine Optimization is a vital marketing method that’s made up of many different elements, which when learnt and correctly implemented, can increase brand awareness, build relationships and help establish your business as an authority.

If you are serious about your blog, I strongly suggest you invest time into learning at very least, the basics of SEO.

10. Install Rank Math

Rank Math is a Search Engine Optimization plugin for WordPress that makes it easy for anyone to optimise their website. If their was only one tool I could recommend it would be this. Rank Math is very powerful and comes with many essential features that will help your website get ahead of your competition. You can install it for free from the WordPress dashboard but I highly recommend the pro plan as it’s just so much more powerful.

11. Verify your domain with Google Search Console

Once your blog is live and ready to go, you should verify it with
Google Search Console. Here are some of the great benefits of doing so.

12. Use Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a tool that every serious online business should be using, as it tracks specific data about your audience, such as their demographics and how they ended up on your site, as well as data about your search traffic, page views and much more.

13. Develop a Blogger outreach plan

A blogger outreach plan is essentially a process of building relationships with other bloggers. One great way of reaching out to the bloggers within your niche is by using the broken link checker tool.

Identify a few of the most influential bloggers within your niche. If you enter the URL of their blog into the broken link checker tool any links that are broken should come up.

You could now email that blogger and tell them about their broken link and offer a link to your site (if relevant) in exchange for helping them out. Of course, this is just one way you can reach out to other bloggers.
Here are some more!

14. Create Infographics

Not only do infographics give your content a whole different dimension, but they can be great for SEO purposes as well, providing you create your own.

By creating a quality infographic and adding it into your blog post, chances are another blogger may want to use your infographic in their content. Once you create your infographic, you can create an embed code, which will allow readers to share it.

15. Run a contest

Running a contest on your blog or social media can be a very effective way to engage your existing readers and attract new ones.

16. Update or refresh old blog posts

Updating your older content can be an effective way to boost your SEO and increase your traffic. For example, If your blog posts are about technology, it’s likely there will be new content to add, as we know niches such as technology are ever-changing.

17. Optimize your permalink structure

Permalinks are the full URL that your audience and search engines see when navigating through your site, so it’s important they are optimized correctly.

18. Install ‘Broken Link Checker’

Dead links within your website can negatively impact SEO and harm your credibility as an authority, whilst also making it frustrating for your readers. 

Broken link checker is a free google chrome extension that highlights which links are functional and which ones are not.  

Once you’ve got a list of all your broken links, you can use the redirection feature within Rank Math to fix them and improve your SEO.

19. Publish your content at the right time

Depending on who your target audience is, you’ll want to make sure that you publish your content at the most optimal time. 

According to Neil Patel, for maximum traffic, the best time to publish a post is on Monday in the late morning around 11 am. The weekend is over and people are looking for something interesting midway through work. 

20. Translate your content into other languages

According to Tech.Co, 70% of the world doesn’t speak English yet 57% of websites contain only English. Furthermore, more than half of all Google searches are not conducted in English. 

If you would like to give your readers the option of translating your content, I recommend you install the GTranslate plugin

21. Word of mouth

Word of mouth can be a great way to kick-start your business and drive traffic to your blog instantaneously. If you have amazing content and think people will benefit from reading it, let the world know about it. 

Telling just a few like-minded people can have a knock-on effect to hundreds, if not thousands.

Building your Brand

If your brand sucks, so will your business. Effective branding is essential for establishing your business as a front-runner within the niche you’re working in. There is so much competition these days that branding is even more important than it use to be. Here are 10 tips that will help you build a professional brand.

1. Make a plan first

You should have a detailed and well thought out plan before attempting to build your brand. Your brand plan should include things such as your vision, your mission, your goals, the strategies you will use to achieve these and what are promotional methods will be.

2. Choose a memorable domain name

Choosing a domain name is one of the first things you need to do when launching a website. It’s essential you spend a lot of time on this to make sure you pick a name that is memorable, isn’t hard to spell and gives the reader an idea on what your website is about.

3. Use an email address that matches your domain name

There are a few reasons why using a custom email address that matches your domain name is so important. 

  • Simplicity – your audience is more likely to remember an email address that matches your domain name.
  • Credibility – a business with a custom email address such as info@nickkeeping.com appears much more credible than a generic one, such as nickkeeping@gmail.com. 
  • Consistency – when it comes to building a brand, consistency is essential. You’ll want to make sure your business name is plastered everywhere that matters. 

4. Get your own professional logo

A professional logo may be the single most effective branding tool to build your business’ brand identity.  A logo will get your brands uniqueness and personality across and can act as an effective visual aid for your audience.

In fact, according to Optimal Targeting, our brain processes visuals 60,000x faster than text, and people remember 80% of images (versus 20% of text and 10% of sound). 

You can get a professional logo designed for next to nothing on platforms such as Fiverr

5. Include a tagline

A good tagline can be a real game-changer when it comes to branding. A tagline should represent the vision and mission of your business and should be easily identifiable with your audience.  

6. Determine your colour palette

According to 99 Designs, colour plays an important role in brand identity—it draws consumers to products, stirs emotions and has a huge impact on brand recognition. 

As we all know, emotions can impact the decisions we make. By using specific colours within your brand, you could subconsciously influence the actions of your audience when they interact with your business, such as purchasing your products or sharing content. 

7. Be consistent

Ensuring you remain consistent across all of your communication channels is essential when it comes to branding. There needs to be an element of visual cohesion, such as sticking with the same colour palette, fonts, sizes of your logo and other forms of content. 

This is a key part of building brand identity and establishing your business as an authority. 

8. Develop a unique tone

Stay away from the generic, corporate gobbledygook. When you write a piece of content you should be as human as possible, which means engaging your reader and using a conversational style method of writing where appropriate. 

9. Learn how to become an authority

Becoming an authority within your niche is difficult and can take many years to accomplish unless you are working in a very small, targeted niche. That being said, it is possible, providing you are willing to put in the work. 

There are a few things you can do to increase your brand’s authority, such as networking with other influencers and effective marketing tactics.

However, I strongly believe the single most important thing you can do to become an authority is simply offering incredible value and actually care about your readers or customers needs. 

10. Create an awesome About page

An about page can really make a difference in your brand’s ability to connect with your audience. 

If you check out my about page, you’ll notice I’ve clearly stated the purpose of my blog and information about myself in a creative way, along with an honest description of how why I started this blog. 

I highly recommend reading Neil Patel’s guide on creating an about page

Design

Designing your website should be a stress-free and enjoyable process. Unfortunately, the actual process can be somewhat different, often leading to a lot of head-scratching, overwhelm, and of course, enormous bags under your eyes. Here are 9 tips that will optimise the design of your site.

1. Choose the right theme

There are thousands of different themes to choose from all over the web, so deciding on which one will be appropriate for your blog or website can be tricky. My recommendation would be the Genesis Framework

The Genesis Framework allows you to build incredible websites, even if you are a novice. It was created by a company called StudioPress who also have an array of professional and responsive themes to choose from, which are all compatible with WordPress.

To get the most bang for your buck, you’ll need to buy the Genesis Framework first, then select a child theme after. 

2. Ensure your blog is mobile friendly

According to Google: 

61% of users are unlikely to return to a mobile site they had trouble accessing and 40% visit a competitor’s site instead.

Making sure your website or blog is mobile friendly is essential; your business will probably fail without it. 

To ensure your site is mobile-friendly, only choose themes that are described as ‘responsive’. If you already have a website and want to check how mobile-friendly it is, you can use Google’s mobile-friendly test.  

3. Make your content width narrow

What’s the most important thing about a blog? The content right? Your primary goal should be to get your audience interested in the first few sentences asap. The problem is, we only have seconds to achieve this, which means the odds are stacked against us.

A great way to get around this is by narrowing the width of your content and decluttering your blog page. Using this simple tip your readers are more likely to take notice of what you have to say and therefore engage with your content more. 

4. Optimise above the fold

Above the fold is content that is placed at the top of your blog which is usually the first thing your visitors will see. As this section will be seen by more people, it’s important you optimise this area by publishing only important information, usually to carry out a certain objective. 

On my homepage, my above the fold features a large and eye-catching image of myself, along with relevant text and a very obvious button. The objective here is to get my readers to click the button and visit my ‘Start Here‘ page. 

5. Declutter your site

You’ll want your blog to be free-flowing, simple and spacious. Don’t overdo it when it comes to content on your homepage; only show what’s important and relevant.

Not only does a cluttered website look crap, but it will confuse and overwhelm your visitors. 

According to Commpro, too much information or too many choices and our brains slow down – like an over-taxed computer – and we are forced to narrow our focus on what’s important.

Use the following prompts to help keep your site simple:

  • Ditch the ads – never use advertisements on your homepage
  • Decide if a sidebar is really necessary
  • Use your above-the-fold for one thing, and one thing only
  • Limit your menu to seven items – the short term memory can only hold seven items. 
  • Use lots of white space – this is the area of your website that doesn’t contain any content. Keeping your website spacious by using white space will draw attention to the important stuff on your site. 
  • Avoid drop-down menus – With too many items, a drop-down menu could cause an added complexity and confuse your readers. Instead, why not use a menu like mine that slides in? It’s more user-friendly.
  • Use minimal colour – I personally wouldn’t use a palette of more than 3 colours on a website. You should have 1 or 2 main colours and then another one for things like buttons and links. 

6. Keep your design goal-driven

Although an aesthetic looking website is important, it’s pretty much useless without a goal or purpose. Your website should provide a user experience that aligns with the needs of your customer and the goals of your business.  

7. Use powerful colours to draw attention to a call to action

If you want your readers to take notice of what you’re promoting then make sure you use colours that will add emphasis. I use yellow on my call to actions as it stands out and aligns with the design of my site. 

8. Use eye-catching images for your content

An eye-catching image will improve your conversion rate and provide a different way for your readers to take in your content. 

Remember…

a picture is worth a thousand words. 

If you want professional-looking images for your blog posts I highly recommend either Storyblocks or Canva Pro

9. It’s never going to be perfect

One thing you will learn whilst designing your blog is how fussy you can become with the way it looks. I spent hours trying to make my own site perfect, before realising it was never going to happen. 

The most important thing is your content.

Practical Blogging Tips Website Speed Icon

Performance and Speed Optimisation

Imagine you go out for dinner at your favourite restaurant and before you’ve even had a chance to be seated you find out there’s an hour wait for food. It’s likely that you’re not going to stick around. Websites are pretty much the same. Your readers won’t appreciate having to wait for ages to read your content and will most likely click on another website for the help they need.

Here are 9 tips that will ensure your website is optimized for both performance and speed.

1. Use Gt-Metric to analyse your site

The first step in optimising the performance and speed of your site is to analyze it so you can see what you need to change. For this, I recommend using Gt-Metrix

2. Use a CDN

CDN stands for Content Delivery Network and is essentially a group of servers that are geographically distributed that work together to provide fast delivery of internet connection. 

Some of the benefits of using a CDN include:

  • Improving website load times
  • Reducing bandwidth costs
  • Increasing content availability and redundancy 
  • Improving website security 

I recommend using Cloudflare as your CDN.

3. Ensure you have reliable website hosting

Before you set up your website you will need to find a reliable web hosting platform. This is where all the files, information and other content on your website live, so choose wisely. 

My personal recommendation is Siteground. I’ve used them for a number of years now and they continue to impress me with their reliable services and excellent 24/7 customer support. 

4. Optimise your images

Correctly optimising your images can have a benefit on the speed and performance of your site. Here are a few best practices to follow: 

  • Choose the right file format – Stick to using JPG for most of your images as the file size is smaller. PNG images can be used for high quality images but they should be compressed.
  • Use an image compressor – These work by reducing the file size without losing image quality. I recommend ImageResize.org
  • Use an image optimisation plugin – Discussed below. 

5. Use a caching plugin

If you want to increase the speed of your website, you should definitely be using a caching plugin. I have tried and tested many and although there are some great options out there, the majority are confusing and can take a while to set up properly. 

For this reason, I highly recommend WP Rocket. It’s recognised by many experts as the best caching plugin on the market. 

6. Install the WP-Optimize plugin

WP-Optimize is a plugin used to clean up your WordPress database so it runs at maximum efficiency. It can be installed for free from your WordPress plugin directory. 

7. Install a Lazy Load plugin

A lazy load plugin works by displaying images to your readers only when they are actually visible to them. This reduces the number of HTTP requests mechanism and improves the loading time. 

I recommend Lazy Load by WP Rocket

8. Enable Gzip compression

Gzip compression is a process of reducing your website’s files so that your web server can load the files faster for your visitors. It sounds complicated but it’s actually quite simple.

To enable Gzip compression you can use this tutorial

9. Consider using the Genesis Framework

Earlier I recommended the Genesis Framework as my go-to theme for creating beautiful websites. I’m also recommending it here because when it comes to performance, It simply can’t be beaten. 

Unlike a lot of other themes, Genesis is coded exceptionally well, which means faster load times with zero bloat. It’s also incredibly reliable.

Practical Blogging Tips Organisation

Planning and Organisation

I think most people don’t realize how much work and dedication it takes to run a blog. Like any business, failure is pretty much inevitable if you aren’t organised. Here are 8 time-saving and actionable tips to help skyrocket your productivity.

1. Use Buffer to manage your Social Media accounts

Social media marketing will play an important role in the success of your blog. To make things easier I highly recommend using Buffer. Buffer allows users to share and schedule content across all of their social media platforms with a single click. 

2. Use Evernote Web-clipper to save important information directly in your Evernote account

Web Clipper is a fantastic tool that allows you to save things like webpages, articles and PDF’s directly to your Evernote account. It’s really handy for conducting research and planning blog post ideas. 

It’s also completely free of charge and can be installed as a google chrome extension. 

3. Use CoSchedule

CoSchedule is an all-in-one platform for planning, organizing, and executing all things content marketing. It features a drag-and-drop calendar so you can plan and organise all of your projects in one place.  

4. Set yourself deadlines

If you are serious about creating an income online through blogging or any other business for that matter, you need to start setting yourself deadlines. 

Deadlines will increase your motivation, will help you prioritize what’s important and prime you for success. According to Brian Tracy, setting deadlines increases the likelihood of success by as much as 11.5 times.

5. Use Google Drive

Google Drive is a free data storage service that allows you to store important files and other types of content using cloud computing technology; meaning you can access your files anywhere. 

6. Use the GMass extension for Gmail

GMass is a tool that allows you to send emails to thousands of people at the same time. All you need is a Gmail account and Google Chrome. 

7. Set yourself goals

Goal setting is a must when it comes to effective planning and organisation. What separates successful blogs from unsuccessful, are the clearly defined goals the author has set themselves, which provides direction and helps prevent overwhelm and confusion. 

8. Always have a notebook on you

I take a notebook with me everywhere. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had a brainwave and thought of a really amazing idea, only to completely forgot it later on. 

Your best ideas hardly ever come when you are sat at your desk in work mode. Creativity and inspiration usually strike when we least expect it, so do yourself a favour and buy a notebook.

Maintaining Your Health

Running a successful blog takes a lot of work and dedication and could quite easily affect your health if you aren’t careful. No matter what profession you’re in, someone that keeps their body and mind in good health will usually always outperform someone that doesn’t. Here are 9 tips that will ensure you stay in good health and help increase your productivity.

1. Move and stretch often

According to WELCOA, frequent stretching keeps proper blood and nutrient supply to the working muscles and tissues and prevents fatigue and discomfort. I usually stretch for at least 10 minutes every few hours throughout the day.

2. Go for a walk in the morning

If you have the time, try going on a 20-minute brisk walk every morning. I like to use this time to gather my thoughts and plan out my day. It’s also great for cardiovascular fitness.

3. Take short breaks in between tasks

According to a 2014 study, the ideal length of a break should be 17 minutes away from the computer, followed and preceded by 52 minutes of work. Regular breaks will prevent brain fog and increase your productivity when you’re actually working.

4. Practice Meditation

It’s common knowledge that regularly practicing meditation can elicit some pretty incredible health benefits, such as stress and anxiety reduction and an increase in overall happiness. According to a study by J.Schooler, it also improves your ability to be creative and think outside the box, which is what blogging is all about.

5. Get a decent office chair

Did you know that around 81% of UK office workers spend between 4 and 9 hours a day sitting at their desk? That’s a long time to be sat down, especially if you have a crappy chair that doesn’t support you properly. I highly recommend you invest in a decent chair, that enables you to complete your work without wreaking havoc on your back and neck.

6. Maintain a good posture whilst working

Follow this postural checklist and you can’t go wrong:

  • Your eyes should be level with the top of your computer monitor
  • Your shoulders should be relaxed and low, not high and hunched up.
  • Your lower arms should be parallel to the floor.
  • You shouldn’t be reaching too far for your keyboard and mouse, you should be able to control them easily with arms bent at the elbow.
  • Your feet should be flat on the floor.
  • Your upper back should be straight.
  • Your lower back has a natural curve that should be supported by your chair.
  • Your upper legs should be at a 90° angle from your body.
  • You should be sitting up straight and your screen should be a full arm’s length away from you.

7. Keep a bottle of water with you at all times

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that being dehydrated is going to negatively impact your work. Make it easy for yourself and just keep a bottle with you.

8. Optimise screen brightness so you don’t strain your eyes

You want your monitor’s brightness to match your surrounding workspace brightness. To achieve this, look at the white background of this page. If it looks like a light source in the room, it’s too bright. If it seems dull and grey, it’s probably too dark.

9. Have a cold shower in the morning

The thought of taking a cold shower first thing in the morning is terrifying. However, this is something I’ve started to do more often and I can tell you from personal experience that you’ll leave the bathroom feeling on top of the world. You’ll see an increase in endorphins, reduced muscle inflammation, increased alertness, reduced stress and increased productivity. Give it a go!

Productivity and Motivation

Just like with any other business, it’s important that you remain productive and motivated in order to create the best content you can. If your blogging consistency drops, you’ll almost certainly lose a few readers. Here are a few productivity and motivation tips to keep your work flowing.

1. Keep your phone out of sight whilst you’re working

If you want to get some real work done, having your phone on your desk next to you is a serious no-no. Switch your phone off, put it out of sight and focus solely on your work.

2. Be Proactive before being Reactive

Being proactive means focusing on the most important tasks within your business. Being reactive is the things that don’t require a lot of brain power, such as replying to emails. Decide what time of day you’re at your most productive and use this time to work on the tasks that make up the meat of your business.

3. Use your computer for work stuff only

Your computer is for work, and work only! 

4. Determine what time you work best

Everyone gets 24-hours in a day. It’s up to you how you choose to use those precious hours. Figure out what time of day you feel the most productive and creative and make this part of your daily schedule.

5. Use companies like Fiverr to outsource your work

There are always those mundane tasks within a business we just hate doing, but they have to be done regardless. Use freelance services such as Fiverr to outsource the tasks you don’t want to do. Time is money after all.

6. Listen to books on Audible

There’s so much knowledge that can be obtained from reading books. If like me though, you prefer to listen, I recommend checking out Audible, which lets you download 1 book each month for a small fee. It’s 100% worth it.

7. Reward yourself

When you achieve a goal or complete an important task it’s important you reward yourself after. According to Tony Robbins, by rewarding yourself after a task, your brain elicits positive emotions, leading to the realization that your efforts result in a positive reward.
