Hi everyone! I was telling Craig about how I was finally using mind mapping – since he’d recommended it about 2 years ago, if not longer. I told him about how even mind mapping felt overwhelming because the map gets out of control big and he told me to do one map per project.
Well I upgraded to the paid version – just the $49/year version. I can swing it! So I went for it. I started mind mapping all over the place last night. I have personal mind maps and business mind maps. I have a To Do List with days of the week and each day has a Work and a Home block so I can see what all I need to get done that day.
So I asked Craig “Where do I start?” I still felt a little overwhelmed. He said to look at what makes the most (and recurring) money. That’s my PLR store. I haven’t done a fraction of what I need to do to build that store except create content. I have other promo stuff to do.
He made a suggestion. He told me to mind map that store. So I did. I discovered and implemented two things I could do for increased sales and traffic. One he advised me about. One I did on my own.
This mind map stuff isn’t so awful when you break it down. I hadn’t thought of making narrow mind maps. I was looking the zoom in/zoom out feature and really, when you see one circle with dozens of branches and more circles and more branches, it starts to make you feel like shutting down.
So today the PLR Mini Mart got my undivided attention as far as my own work goes. I also worked on ghostwriting for my special customers. And I’m even doing a mind map for that! It’s awesome.
Craig’s right. While I might want to do things like go back and clean up some old, outdated info product – it’s not my prime money maker right this second. I need to maintain focus on money and then go back and massage the sites that need a little polishing up.
