How many busy moms have a passion that goes unnoticed even in your own life? Do you know what you desire to accomplish, especially concerning your online business endeavors? Who are you? Are you hiding behind a website?
Although you can choose to hide behind a website it is next to impossible to do in this social market. People want to know who you are and who you are is what will attract other people that will share your passion. In the following I want to share my own passion with you. In essence why I do what I do and what my priorities are for doing them.
My Personal Thoughts
I have been thinking much about who I am in respects to the online world. In all reality I am no difference than who I am already a very passionate individual with a message. The message I desire to communicate is encouraging others to be learners. I do that predominately through my writings and recently teachings on videos.
Yes, I would certainly like to make money but for me I would say that is not my driving force. But with that said, even if I do not desire to make money I still desire to impact lives. These lives will certainly have to put some trust in me and that is why I believe the principles of marketing are essential.
A Challenge to Be Yourself
Busy moms passion can be swamped with endless ideas but I have found that in order to truly become the success I desire I cannot hold back who I really am. Granted in doing so I know that I will lose certain people that do not agree with my desired endeavors.
And you know that is alright. When you understand what I have discovered you will learn to accept the fact that you cannot be everything to everyone. This is something that can overwhelm you especially as a busy mom. The wonderful reality is once you have accepted who you are and are ready to go forward with your passion, in time you will attract people you can resound with your passion.
Who is Ann Marie Moore (Mom Internet)
I would then identify myself in respect to the online world as such:
Follower of Jesus Christ (everything thing that I share ties in to Biblical teaching, I cannot hide it and I certainly cannot deny it – my lack of understanding this has, in a sense hindered the power of my message I desire to convey be it in business or for practical life tips)
Making a difference in the lives of others (here is where I failed to understand who my intended people group or “market” if you will is. I desire to target spiritually interested people who are passionate to use their abilities in such a way they propel the same desire of making a difference in the lives of others).
Writer/Speaker (this is where I get my message across using blogs, authoring books and becoming involved in actual mentoring and teaching. In a sense applying myself to make a difference in the lives of others). Currently I write for a non-listed site for our ministry that is for our supporters. I also write for ScriptureLook.com where I publicly share my meditations, musings and music that God blesses me with.
Marketer (technically a “seller” of my ideas be it for an exchange of name and email, money or an active following through my blogs, books or teachings).
It is pretty much in the order I presented it:
- Follower of Jesus Christ (Love God)
- Making a difference in the lives of others (Love my neighbor)
- Writer/Speaker (Get my message across)
- Marketer (conversions)
On Mom Internet my desire is to be an encourager to busy moms by offering you practical tips to everyday living, business and to encourage you to go forward with your passion.
Now It’s Your Turn
You can take the basic principles I outlined here. For example identify your priorities for why you do what you do. Let’s use the four I mentioned and allow me to generalize them for your personal application.
You are also welcome to use what I have shared with you especially if you have similar passions.
- What is your driving passion (Your big vision that encourages you)?
- Who is your intended market (People you plan to add value to)?
- How will you get your message across (Write/video/speak or a combination)?
- What is your marketing plan and what kind of conversion do you want (name and email, faithful following to spread your message, money, a mix or all the above)?
You are also welcome to use what I have shared with you especially if you have similar passions and tailor to you. Once you have identified what your priorities are, feel free to share them in the comments below.
