This is actually a very timely article. Truth is, the inspiration for it came from this very blog. I’ll explain shortly. What I hope you will get out of reading this is a clear head and an idea of what to do after you’ve just burnt yourself out on a huge project and feel like you’ve got no wind left in your sales.
If you’ve been following my articles here for some time, you will notice that I just completed a series titled “Top 25 Success Secrets.” If you do the math, that comes out to 25 articles in less than two months. A lot of thought went into them and, quite honestly, took a lot out of my sales.
So here I am now, finished with a major article writing project and trying to figure out where to go from here. If you think it’s easy recharging your batteries after a long project, think again. Sometimes your head is so foggy, you don’t know which end is up. So what do you do?
Well, here is what I did. I sat back, took a breath, and realized that what I just went through is something that a lot of people are going to experience at one time or another. So I came up with the idea to write this article. But that’s only going to buy me a day of time. Where do I go from here?
Where I go from here is simple. I’ll take a look at all the articles that I’ve written for this blog so far. I’ll see which ones promised a next part and start working on the next part. Those are the easy articles to fill as the foundation has already been laid out. But what happens when I’m done with all the multi part articles?
That’s when I go into what I call “think mode.” I’ll brainstorm some ideas for new articles and article series. For example, I came up with the idea for “Top 25 Success Secrets” from a Warrior Forum post and a free report that I put together. So I figured why not turn that info into a series of articles?
What I’ll probably do is look at other free reports that I’ve done and see which one of those I can turn into articles as well. The great thing about this business is that the longer you’ve been doing it, the more info you have to fall back on to write about.
And it’s the same way with product creation. If you really know your niche well, you can come up with a variety of products and never run out of ideas. I can’t even count all the products that I’ve created over the years and still manage to crank out at least two new ones every month.
The key to the whole process is to sit back, relax, take stock of what you’ve already done and see where you can grab new ideas from…even if they’re just offshoots of things you’ve done before.
Sometimes what’s old is new again.
