Haven’t really talked here on my blog about some of my dreams that are in good correlation to minimalism.
So what am I actually aspiring to?
One of my passions is to throughly explore the world, travel and do all of that while my worldly belongings are brought to a bare minimum (except my technology, I will never renounce it). Earn digitally, live nomadically. Where every destination makes me a richer person.
Duality of my nature
In the realm of physical I want to have as less as possible, but in the realm of digital I want to have a lot. Lots of online businesses, lots of people employed. But no actual place to call my home, except the hotel room in which I am guest at that particular moment.
Location independence equals freedom
I am not sure how to work on this dream, it would require a lot of moving out of the comfort zone for me. But I know I wanna be liberated, and live my life on my terms.
When the whole world is your home
And than instead of thinking of one location where you are, the entire world is becoming your home. My minimalism is not exactly a minimalism per se, but it is my dream after all.
When having less…
Actually means having more.
There is a huge debate on the web regarding the catchiness of your headlines. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking of great headlines, and I’ve tried using canned ideas out there provided by Copy Blogger and other marketing “gurus”.
My practice showed that when I used “canned” ideas, my click through rate, didn’t go up, in some cases it also went down. It’s a good idea to have premade headlines ready and avaialble, but the fact remains, if you used canned material, you will get the canned results.
What is the solution?
The solution to this problem is actually knowing your niche and being original. If you don’t flow with your headlines, it will be apparent that you are trying hard to impress. Also, more often than not, you won’t be able to attract, because you won’t be able to deliver.
And in this era of overproduction, taking too much time to create content is actually it’s killer.
What am I doing?
I am going to stick to my usual routine that I did so far. I am going to write great things and give them headline later. It might be boring, it might be great. But those people that read you, will focus on what you had to say.
Let’s not forget SEO… And how it can hurt your content, rather than bringing you the benefits. Traffic is not the only metric that you need to monitor.
I would way more love to have 10 qualified visitors to my page, that are actually going to buy something and put money in my pocket, than consistent 1000 visitors monthly, that aren’t going to buy anything.
It’s just a matter of your financial inteligence.
