20 must-have qualities to be a successful online marketing entrepreneur

OpenThere are certain qualities necessary to insure success. Some of these may be part of your personality, and others will have to be developed with conscious effort.butterfly_tealSlwb

Let’s look at what you need to get you to the top:

  1. Be firm in your decisions and reactions. You have to be able to make rational, logical decisions by using common sense.
  2. You must be able to analyze a situation or issue with ease. For this you will need a sound understanding of how to handle specific situations as well as different people with different needs. Building good relationships is detrimental to your business.
  3. Capitalize on your strengths and change your weaknesses. Never try to be a jack of all trades and master of none. You can always work on developing more strengths.
  4. Be altruistic. In this business, you are very dependent on other people. If you are selfish people will soon feel that you are using them only to better your own situation, with disregard of their situation.
  5.  Perhaps one of the biggest demands for this business is discipline. Only because this business is done in your own time and in your own space. Be cautious of falling back into a false sense of ‘tomorrow is another day’ – by tomorrow you may have missed the bus! Do every day what must be done, and then do something extra. Only then is it time to play.
  6.  Be honest, reliable, supportive and polite. Never give people false information to better yourself. Word will soon spread that you cannot be trusted.
  7. Set yourself some goals and commit to them. Do not downgrade your goals, ever. When you re-evaluate them it must be to set higher goals. However, don’t start with unattainable goals which will be discouraging instead of encouraging.
  8. You must be a good communicator. It is very important to be able to get across exactly what you want to say. Very often it will be a once-only communication opportunity to make a deal.
  9. Stay focused and do not spread your irons to too many fires. In this business it is very easy to become distracted by hype over other platforms.
  10. You have be confident in what you do and feel good about it. Your confidence in the knowledge that you know you will succeed will instantly give people confidence in your abilities.
  11. Creativity will come in very handy. By coming up with fresh ideas can propel your business to new heights.
  12. You need to be a strong leader. In this business where success lies in duplication, a leaderless team heads for doom.
  13. Give other people the respect due to them. Always avoid being arrogant. Being humble will make sure you get other people’s respect in return.
  14. In order not to miss out on opportunities, you must have a positive outlook on life. Negativity will make you stare yourself blind against obstacles and problems. Stay positive and jump those hurdles with ease.
  15. Always avoid delaying tasks. Procrastination is an evil habit which loves to worm itself into our lives, only to spoil our success. Prompt decisive action will serve you better.
  16. Plan your day, every day. Work through it methodically and stick to the plan.
  17. If you don’t have it, develop a habit of reading. Read, read and read some more. Every bit of information out there are little gold nuggets that may just give you that extra little push.
  18. Never miss an opportunity to learn from those people who are already successful. You will be surprised to see how many of them are prepared to share their knowledge.
  19. Follow the example of those and share your knowledge. Remember the starting problems and questions you had, and share the answers with new arrivals.
  20. Last but not least. There is one word in any language that must erased. It does not deserve to be there – that word is QUIT. Erase it from your vocabulary right away and you will never be bothered by the possibility of quitting.butterfly_collage
