When it comes to blogging the internet is littered with tips, tricks, and hacks you can implement to achieve better results. And depending on who wrote or said them, they’re taken as gospel. I wouldn’t begrudge you for thinking this way and/or trying to stay up-to-date on the latest hacks available. That makes perfect sense to stay on the cutting edge of your craft. Because if you’re not getting better you’re getting worse. As a result your competition is eating your lunch as we speak. You don’t want that to happen do you? Of course you don’t.
So, how do you combat that?
It’s very simple. Which will lead us to the secret weapon of blogging.
The Secret Weapon Of Blogging Is CONSISTENCY!
That’s right ladies and gentleman.
That’s the secret.
- 1,000 to 3,000 words.
- Multiple images and screenshots.
Now, to be clear those things I just mentioned don’t hurt, but the secret weapon really is consistency.
Why is Neil Patel so successful at blogging?
He blogs consistently. And by consistently I mean like every day , if not close to it. Not to mention he has more than one blog too.
Does this make sense?
It should, but let me put it another way to demonstrate the power of consistency.
We’re going to talk about money in this example. You can all relate to money.
If you save $10 every day and I mean every day – 7 days a week for one year.
How much money will you have saved? $3,640
Now, if you continue year after year after year that $3,640 snowballs and keeps getting bigger and bigger.
You’re being consistent in your approach by committing to saving $10 every single day.
If you apply the same principle to your blogging efforts imagine the results you’ll achieve.
If it’s that easy, then why do so many people not do it?
It’s hard work. People are lazy, especially in this day and age and do not want to put the work in. They want the results of the work without doing it. Also, they do not have the patience to see the process through. Rome wasn’t built in a day. You may think it was. but it wasn’t.
I am going to go to sports for my next example.
Tom Brady is one of the best football players in the NFL today.
He consistently performs at a very high level every game day.
But in order to play that well in the games he needs to practice and take care of himself on a consistent basis every single day. Not one day here and one day there.
Notice a trend here amongst Neil Patel and Tom Brady?
They’re consistent day in and day out. That’s not only what makes them great at what they do, but better than everyone else.
Are you picking up what I am putting down?
I sure hope so.
