Increase Productivity

You need to track a variety of things as an Internet entrepreneur.

This is especially true if you’re building an authority Internet business that deals with a large amount of links, web accounts and content pages.

In a given week, you have to track:

  • Links to promotions and affiliate offers
  • Autoresponder and broadcast email messages
  • Published blog posts and social status updates
  • Ideas to develop into future articles and products
  • Marketing actions you’re currently testing
  • Networking contacts and related websites

Now, most people manage each of these items in a separate document or piece of software.  A simpler solution (in my opinion) is to run your entire business using a simple document.

In this post, I’ll talk about the “master document” that I use to manage my authority site, DevelopGoodHabits.com (DGH).  To start, I’ll talk about why it’s important to create this file.  After that, I’ll provide seven real-world examples of how I use it.  And then we’ll finish off with a simple action plan for implementing this strategy.

Let’s get to it. [click to continue…]

How to Find Time to Write an eBook

We’ve all heard this before:

“One of the best ways to make money online is to write an eBook.”

I think this statement is true.

But I also believe it’s very hard for many entrepreneurs to find time to write an eBook.

We all live busy lives.

This is especially true if you juggle an Internet business with family, work, and other obligations.

So how do you find the time to write an eBook?

I have a simple answer:

You can’t find time to write an eBook, you need to make it.

Update (12/22/11):  I wrote this article last year…but I thought it was funny enough to post again.

Why You Need to Keep Track of your Time
