Chances are, if you’re reading this and thinking about becoming an internet marketer/websmith, you have at least the beginnings of an entrepreneurial mindset. At the heart of an entrepreneurial mindset is a desire to get more from your life, to play by your own rules instead of someone else’s rules. However, it’s also much more than that.
What Is An Entrepreneurial Mindset?
An entrepreneur seeks to find a need and fill it. They strive to add value to the lives of others by providing products, services, or specialized information. As you might expect, it takes a unique person to be an internet entrepreneur.
It takes someone who is willing to dig deep to discover and innovate ways to provide value to others. Entrepreneurs are creative problem solvers as well as skilled strategists and planners. An entrepreneurial mindset also requires passion, patience and perseverance. Finally, it also requires a willingness to accept risk.
An entrepreneur is someone who harnesses their dreams & passions and takes action to make them a reality.
Thinking like an Internet Entrepreneur…
When you think like an internet entrepreneur you:
1.) Visualize the process – You can envision the process your customers might use to find your business website, move through your website to receive the most value, and generate profits.
2.) Understand who your customers are – This is an ongoing process as your customer profile may change and grow. It requires ongoing communication and research.
3.) Respond to changes – The Internet is a constantly evolving entity and as an online marketer your business will change too. It’s essential for the success of your business that you’re able to respond to changes quickly. In fact, it’s great if you can get into the habit of anticipating change and responding to it before your competition.
4.) Connect with your audience – You’ll use a variety of methods to connect with your audience. For example, you might connect via email and social media. However, it all begins and ends with your business website. The language you use on your site needs to connect with your audience.
5.) Know when, or whether, to innovate – You just don’t need to reinvent the wheel. While innovation will be a key part of your success, in many cases the work has been done by others. Entrepreneurs know when to follow the advice and experience of others and when to blaze their own trail.
6.) Reap repeated rewards – The key to passive income is to generate systems that pay off again and again. If you have to bust your butt for each and every sale, then change needs to happen. The goal of online marketing is to make it simple for your customers to receive value and for you to earn money.
The bad news first…
Most people aren’t born with all of these internet entrepreneur skills or characteristics. In fact, generally passion is the only characteristic a person may possess.
The good news is that if there is desire, these characteristics can be learned and strengthened. If you have the passion to own your own online business, you can learn how to be an entrepreneur.
