I don’t want to scare you, but running a digital business isn’t easy …
What’s the biggest challenge?
There’s a lot that goes into the day-to-day of leading an online business. Every hour, or heck, every second is important. How you manage your time is one of the most difficult things to figure out.
In this episode, Sean Jackson explains the biggest challenge all digital entrepreneurs face. He also gives you an exercise to help eliminate your biggest pain points.

Now here are this week’s five resources to help you create, sell, and grow.
1. Don’t fail with Google Analytics analysis
Don’t be fooled into thinking Google Analytics is straightforward as you’ll surely still hit walls and discover inefficiencies in the system. But hopefully, if you study some hard-fought tips to start, you’ll avoid the most damaging mistakes.
2. No one likes customer churn
If you want persistent growth, customer retention is the most important part of the equation. The problem is most businesses don’t know their customers very well, but if you apply the suggestions in this guide, you can find (and keep) your ideal customer.
3. Secure your business website
Nothing will erode your audience’s trust in you faster than visiting your website and getting a security warning, or having Google flash a “You can’t trust this site” message in your search results.
4. Get the knowledge that you’re missing
The first step to solving most problems is figuring out what you don’t know and then learning it. The key to success is to have the inner drive to always acquire new knowledge.
5. Don’t underestimate the value of video
Helpful video marketing may be exactly what your online business needs to reach customers. Take these tips so you can start using videos for your next ecommerce marketing strategy… even if you have no budget, experience or technical skills.
I hope you find these resources to be useful, and that at least one of them helps you take a meaningful step forward during the course of the next week.
Thanks for your attention, and have a great weekend.
