8 Crucial Life Skills You Must Enhance to Succeed in Online Marketing

Published on 11/9/2015

We all start out the same. We progress through our primary education, begin and complete our college studies, and then pursue our careers. Throughout this time, we mature both physically and mentally, establish adult relationships, leave the nest, and learn the ways of the world. In spite of this, we realize soon after that we will not get the brass ring unless we have developed certain real world skills to achieve true success. This post will discuss a few of the most basic ones that you must have in order to be amongst the most successful people who have ever walked the globe.

1. Reading Skills
Obviously, we all have to learn how to read in order to survive. However, being a skilled reader goes far beyond knowing how to read words off of a page and interpret a message. The reason for becoming a skilled reader is to become a skilled writer. If you don't read well, and you won't write well. If you don't write well, you will struggle when it's time to deliver your thoughts and ideas verbally. Thus, it'll be extremely difficult to find a job, enroll in an academic program or even send simple broadcast messages to your email subscribers.

2. Writing Skills
Another important reason for reading well is so that you can also write well. No one has ever demonstrated good writing skills without having first developed the ability to read well. If you can think of those times where you’ve come across an essay that was poorly written, it is very likely that you assumed that the writer was a very poor reader. Moreover, poor writing skills is an absolute turn off. If you were to submit a job resume that was littered with poor spelling, grammar, and punctuation; the chances that your resume would even get looked at would be nil. Therefore, practice and improve your writing skills on a daily basis.

3. Cerebral Math Skills
You’ll need to develop your math skills in order to cope with those spur-of-the-moment occurrences where you’ll be asked to do arithmetic in your head. If you were to solely rely on a calculator to solve your math problems for you, you would have very little faith and confidence in your ability to come up with the answers using only your brain. However, leaving the calculator at home would be a great way to force yourself to think; whether it’s to solve a math problem or to solve anything else. In addition, the more confident you are at doing simple math problems in your head, the more you will voluntarily challenge yourself with more complex math problems. In a real world example, you would need to know when you should multiply, divide, and move decimal points in order to figure out your grocery bill. How do you think you would manage this if you had forgotten your calculator? The answer is simple. Make an effort improve your math skills using just your brain power.

4. Critical Thinking Skills
One of the biggest challenges for many people is their ability to do critical thinking. However, this is not to suggest that they don’t think critically. Many individuals are great critics. However, they exercise critical thinking only to the degree that it matches perfectly with their egos and personal comfort zones. Critical thinking involves examining an argument from all sides of the triangle; even if two of those sides refute your own personal philosophy and beliefs. An excellent illustration of this is in how most people describe their work ethic. Instead of using critical thinking skills to get at a truthful response, most people simply respond positively without closely questioning their past work-related office behavior. Nevertheless, they are push-button ready to accuse others for not possessing a good work ethic. You must improve your critical thinking skills.

5. Marketing Skills
If you do any form of business trade, then you know how absolutely important it is to be great at marketing. As an online marketing practitioner, you must know certain detailed demographics about your proposed customers such as their age, occupation, annual income, marital status, spending habits, and some forth. Once, you have gathered those details, you must then know how to reach those customers using effective marketing strategies. The more you do this, the better you will get, and the more success you will enjoy.

6. Sales Skills
Former boxing great George Foreman once said that you won’t become successful if you don’t know how to sell. As true as this statement is, there are still those who just don’t get what it actually means. If you were to ask the average individual to define selling, they would most likely describe an archetype of the vacuum cleaner salesman. However, selling is not strictly an act of knocking on doors to sell encyclopedias. Selling involves educating others on ways to improve the quality of their lives. Your job is to teach people something that will make their lives better. Additionally, selling does not necessarily have to take place at the kitchen table. It can also take place online through a web presence. However, whether you choose to sell at a kitchen table or online, the sales process still involves providing some type of value to others that will improve the way they think, work, and live. In any case, the important point that you must always keep in mind is that wealth creation occurs when you sell something.

7. Leadership Skills
Many people seem to have the mistaken notion that being a leader means bossing others around and berating them for lacking knowledge and achieving good results. In online marketing, leadership does not involve being the boss over your teammates. Instead, it involves training, encouraging and helping your teammates to achieve their dreams of becoming financially secure for the rest of their lives. Leadership is about being available for your teammates and addressing their needs. In a word, being a skilled leader means always setting a great example for those who follow you so that if they were to duplicate you, they would have a fighting chance at reaching their primary goal of lifelong online business success.

8. Organizational Skills
A crucial quality that all of those engaged in online marketing must have is the habit pf organizing their time, activity, daily assignments and financial resources. Organized people are happier than unorganized people, because they make life plans and set realistic goals to keep themselves focused on winning. With that said, if you want to make great gains, you must have good organizational skills.

Conclusion
There are many other skills that you should improve. However, these are probably the most important basic skills that you must possess to at least begin your success journey. If you can think of any other skills, please leave a comment.
