When I first started my business back in 2015, the initial reason was to start building so I could work from home. Although, sometimes plans don’t go as we expect and sometimes plans will change.
During the building of my business, I started to realize how much I enjoyed helping others with the blogs and websites. I remember back to 2010 when I first started blogging and wish that I had someone to point me in the right direction. However, I didn’t. What I learned was through trial and error. One of the best ways that I can learn.
Fast forward to 2017 and I am ecstatic about helping others. Many of my clientele are new to blogging and WordPress. As I create the vision they want for their website, I’m also creating video to show the step by step how to do certain tasks. I don’t want my client’s to be dependant on someone for the rest of their blogging career. Whatever they can learn to do on their own will make them that much better.
3 Reasons Why I Love Helping Others
Let’s take a look at Why I love helping others.
Having a Client Who is Elated with the Completed Project
Making someone happy because you created what they saw in their head is a great feeling. Although I don’t Skype with my clients, I can feel their enthusiasm via our emails and text conversations. Client Testimonials are key in any business so if you can get them, do it! Just knowing that I put a smile on just one client’s face is definitely worth it.
Teaching a Client
Like I said previously, showing the client how to do something on their website is a huge in my book. If a client asks, I will do it for them, however, I also want them to learn how to do for themselves if they are willing. My client’s don’t always want to know how because they would rather focus on the business side of their blog with content and networking versus the backend stuff. Because of these tedious tasks, I offer a Monthly Blog Management Service which allows the client to not worry about maintenance, customizations, etc. They entrust their blogs/websites with me and simply ask questions along the way.
Doing Something I’m Passionate About
I’m a firm believer in you live a happier life when you are doing something you’re passionate about. I enjoy my side-hustle. I love being creative. It gives me a great sense of achievement knowing that I’m basically 100% self-taught and I’m kicking it! Allowing my passion to flow to someone’s website or blog is in itself, a Win-Win situation.When was the last time you did something you are passionate about?Click To Tweet
