The internet has a seductive allure for people (and even businesses) to work anonymously.
If you’re one of those who wants to work anonymously, that’s a mistake.
Don’t get me wrong. I understand wanting or even needing to be or feel anonymous…sometimes. However…online success is so much more difficult when you’re invisible. You just won’t be all that relevant…simply because no one will know who you are even if you’re sharing great stuff.
Nowadays (like always) you gotta be real. You can truly be real, online, and see wonderful results. In fact, not being real can get even your mobile ready website clicked off or tapped off faster than just about anything. And that’s “really” not good.
Of course, if you’re goal with your website is to quietly toil at your daily tasks and eventually fade way…then by all means, work anonymously. Maybe there’s a justifiable reason for doing that, but I’ll be darned if I get it. After all, why would you go to the trouble of finding, buying, registering, and publishing a website, if you just plan to keep it a secret. You certainly don’t need a website to collect your thoughts, ideas, and pictures. Old fashioned notebooks and photo boxes work great for that.
I’m guessing you didn’t decide to be online so you could be invisible. But you may be a little dazed and confused as to how you can build something worthwhile and stay true to your ideas or products or services. Here’s the thing…
…just be real.
If you found yourself a market before you built your website and launched your business (and I hope you did)…then you simply need to put your story out in front of that market on a regular basis. Show them you know what you’re talking about and that you really care about helping them.
That builds credibility. It builds authority. It builds “REAL”.
If you think you might not be putting your best “real side” forward, I may just be the guy you should talk to. Especially if your focus is the Christian market. I write and produce words and music with a Christian focus, and I can probably help you with yours, too. I can’t guarantee I’ll mesh with everyone…no one can. But I can guarantee this…
I’m a real guy who really wants you to succeed. I have some great skills and services to help you.
