Many people think of New Year’s Eve and they are just thinking about which parties they are going to attend, what to wear, how much to drink and whether they’ll be kissing anyone at midnight. But when it comes to work, the truth is that the New Year is a great time to do something new and start afresh.
The first day of January might not seem the best time to start working, after all, most people will be nursing their hangovers well into the afternoon. However, this is the best time for you to set up a type of ‘business plan’ for the coming year.
Even if you don’t see yourself as the business type, if you are selling gigs on Fourerr, you are clearly interested in making money. If your gigs from 2011 haven’t sold very well, then maybe it’s time to come up with some new ones. Think of the types of skills that you have and go from there…
On the other hand, if your gigs sold really well last year then continuing with the reputation you have already created for yourself seems like the sensible option. To develop your work further however, you need to start thinking about how you can offer more.
Think back through the year – have any buyers contacted you and asked you whether you could provide a different service to the ones that you are offering? If you are offering PLR (Private Label Rights) articles and you got more than one message from prospective buyers during the year asking if you write original articles, then create a gig offering original articles!
Similarly, if you are offering to sing songs by a particular artist, offer gigs that opens this up to ANY song in the world! Or if you are an impressionist, offer more impressions than you did in 2011. The more you offer, and the more diverse your gigs are, the more likely you are to get sales and therefore make money.
So get thinking about what the New Year can bring for you; more clients, more contacts, and even more prosperity!
