On every corner of the globe, individuals, organizations and communities are gathering in digital spaces in profound, new ways. They are meeting, gathering and sharing. They are offering reflections on the things they care about and the lives they aspire to. The world is becoming a much more cohesive place as high speed internet is becoming more and more the accepted norm. Connection is driving the social revolution and creating immense opportunities for the businesses and brands which are able to seize the moment, extend their reach and meet their audiences where they are.
Social media is changing the world as we know it. Every day, people around the world, are utilizing the advanced modern telecommunications infrastructure and the power of their smart phones, tablets and computers to create a new landscape of connection, insight and meaning. Today, social media doesn’t refer to a single platform, tool or app but instead refers to a vast global constellation of connected products, services and opportunities. In essence, social media is a new paradigm of experience which is bringing people closer to the things they love. This is great for all the citizens of the world and it might even be even better for all the global businesses seeking to reach them.
Social media is driving a revolution in the business world which is as useful for small startup endeavors as it is for the largest of enterprise level corporations. All around the world, companies are learning that by connecting with social media meaningfully, they are better able to meet, understand and influence the behaviors of their customers. By creating high quality content, brands are able to tell their stories and the people that enjoy it are able to learn more about the things that are meaningful to them.
In this way, social media is built on reciprocity. That is, it opens a channel between businesses and their target audiences. Both groups receive tangible and intangible benefits from interacting meaningfully with social media content. The absolute best data around this behavior illustrates a very conclusive point: social media marketing campaigns, when wielded effectively, can boost sales, engagement and reputation in clear and increasingly measurable ways which offer clear advantages over other traditional marketing and advertising approaches.There is a tremendously lucrative market which you may not have tapped into yet. It’s being driven by the internet, and the increasingly globalized world. The best part about this constantly evolving, and exponentially growing market is that you can access it from anywhere in the world. That’s right, without even leaving your bed, you can develop what you could scale to nearly passive income streams that will take your earning potential to the next level!
As long as you have steady and reliable access to the world wide web, you too, can begin to sell services online.
Wait a minute, do you mean to tell me that you haven’t thought of this before?

If you are willing to put your doubts aside and open your mind, you just might be a few moments away from the breakthrough you have been so desperately searching for. The bottom line is internet based service businesses are transforming the world as we know it.

The best part about this arrangement is that your business does not need to be bound to any singular geographic location, target market or single skill. It is highly possible and even advantageous to design multiple service based businesses to connect you with a vast network of prospective customers. In many ways, after you design the websites in which these businesses operate, they are largely self-contained, which means that you will not need to invest a lot of time, or money to keep these ventures running and yet, everyday your website is online, prospective leads can track you down.
In a service based business, you are selling your time. You are meeting customers who need a service performed and in exchange for a fee, you are providing what your customer needs. Now you could design a service based business around skills you already have such as copywriting, web design, athletic training, and the list goes on, or you could design one based on skills that you are able to access.
You might be asking yourself, how is it possible to design a service based business providing services which you, yourself do not possess?
This is a a great question. Have you ever heard the saying: “It’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know?”
Well to be entirely honest, the internet has by virtue of its design made the world one giant sandbox.
The team of experts you need is out there waiting for you.
The Talent You Called On Has Arrived
If you don’t know where to find them, you might want to check out a professional services marketplace such as Freelancer, or Upwork. With these platforms, you can connect to a vast world of talent. If you are savvy about how you go about acquiring contacts on platforms like this, you can have a much larger global staff. One of the best things about addressing hiring through websites like this, is you will not need to waste money on salaries and many of the other traditional aspects of hiring talent.
You can charge your customers an hourly or per project fee and pass that pricing on to the experts your work with. Whether you are seeking to employ graphic designers, copywriters or basketball instructors, you will be able to set a price which works for everyone. Talent marketplaces of these types are frequented by talented workers at all ends of the spectrum from the grizzled vets to the still in college geniuses. There is also a wide array of difference in the prices charged by freelancers in different parts of the world.
In India, an English educated but non native speaker may not command the same prices as someone from America, Canada, England or Australia. When it comes to english professional services, people from these countries are able to command better rates. That however does not mean that an Indian writer who is talented but inexpensive couldn’t be useful to your operations.
You can also feel good about what you are doing.
An Indian writer may struggle to find clients who are willing to pay in Western currencies which can be exchanged into the Indian Rupee at an amazing gain of value. Little benefits like this might just be the positive side of globalization. Businesses from around the world are able to access the talent they need. Skilled workers are able to earn money beyond the limits of their local economies. It is truly a win for everyone and it’s nuances like this that make it easier than ever before to build an online business selling services.
The Triangle of Victory
If you want it, you will do anything and everything to get it.
You will take the time to learn any new skills that are necessary for your success.
You will devote yourself to constant personal and professional development.
You will dive headfirst into your dreams, not because I or anyone else told you to, but because they are your truest passions!
You might be asking yourself what passion has to do with business and success.
Isn’t it possible to be successful selling and doing things that you are not passionate about?
It might be possible but that doesn’t mean it is advantageous.
At the end of the day, the surest way to ensure your future innovation and fulfillment, is to be engaged with something that matters to you.
When I started Treadstone Performance, it was a natural fit for me. I had been a gearhead obsessed with cars since my earliest youth. Though building an online store was much harder then and I had to spend many sleepless nights trying to figure out the logistics of navigating supply chains and keeping customers on the other side of the country and world happy; I poured myself into it.
I became a success because I followed my dreams and dedicated myself to something that was meaningful. I looked to the advice of those who had came before me and I was constantly willing to do whatever it took to get ahead.
If you are willing to do the same well then you are ready to lay the capstone in your Triangle of Success.
You might be asking yourself what in the heck that is and for good reason.
I care about you so I am happy to explain:
When you take passion, add expertise and mix with technology, incredible things happen. This is the story of my life and it can be yours too.
Another way to look at this, if you define your target market, know their motivations, doubts and emotions and then present exactly what you they need in an attractive way, you are on your way to engagement, reputation and sales.
A third way to think about the Triangle of Success is to think about the things you have, the things you need and the things you want.
With Shopify, you can move those three aspects of your business persona in greater sync with each other.
You can create a game changing service based business. I can help you. Stay tuned for more insight into how to cash in on your sweat equity and unlock the lifestyle you always wanted.
Remember, in 2017, success is not about working harder. It’s about working smarter.
Few ventures are smarter in 2017 then opening your own online service provider.
Not knowing is the pathway to knowing.
Curiosity and passion can take you a lot further than you think.
My life is the proof.
Until next time.
To your success,
