Hustling. Of course you need planning time and break time, but at the end of the day, you have to work hard. Really hard. Hustling is not just an action, but an attitude.
Having written goals. Setting goals and writing them down not only gives you something to aim for, it keeps you on course and helps you measure results.
Listening. Pay attention to what others are doing and saying related to your industry and your business. It is helpful to know what your competitors are doing and what your customers and prospects think. Listening is particularly easy to do on social media and other digital platforms, but don’t underestimate face to face interaction.
Giving without expectations. When you give freely of yourself for the purposes of connecting or sharing knowledge, you will build relationships. You do need to use Calls to Action, but you do not have to be “selling” in every message.
Being responsive. Responsiveness is a mindset. Regardless of how busy you are, it’s critical to respond to people. Even if you can’t solve a problem on the fly, let people know you heard them and let them know what you can do and when.
Never giving up. You must have a commitment to your business and to your marketing. If a particular campaign doesn’t gain the results you hoped for, it’s OK to tweak it, but don’t stop marketing.
