Following on from my post entitled, Eliminate the Fear, today I’d like to share my views on being a perfectionist.
All the gurus say create a free “giveaway” and build your list.
They also say, create your own products.
It’s no surprise, both are great pieces of advice.
To make a blog income, you need a list and to get a list you have to give something away.
To build your own credibility and also make some money from your blog, you want to create and sell your own product.
However, not many bloggers follow-up on one of these pieces of advice let alone both.
Fear of getting something wrong.
Fear of rejection.
Fear of someone asking for a refund.
They create their product but they think it’s not good enough. They think it’s not worthy of selling. They think it won’t sell. They think those who do purchase it, will immediately want a refund.
So they keep tweaking. Keep changing. And never launch their product. They are the perfectionists.
I am certainly NOT saying just create a load of rubbish. That is not what I am saying.
You still need to produce a quality product you are proud of but it doesn’t have to be perfect.
I’m currently receiving feedback on my new product, The Income Blogging Guide. I’m really proud of it but I wanted others to see it and provide feedback. They are. It’s great. They see all the things I didn’t. I’m getting lots of positive and constructive feedback. Once I implement the changes from individuals, will the product be perfect?
But it will be a really great product, I’m proud of.
So quit waiting to launch your next product or giveaway. It will never be perfect.
Being a perfectionist is just an excuse and you are allowing fear to control you.
If this post hits a nerve with you, take action today and get your product out there for all to see.
