Have you read the book ‘The 7 habits of highly effective people”?

If not and you want to succeed in online selling then this post is for you.

The highly influential book, written by Stephen R.Covey, reveals the way business owners should think and behave in order to succeed.

So if you are determined to become adept at online selling, listen and learn.

1. Responsibility

The first habit of successful people is that they take full responsibility for their own actions. Every decision you make will determine how effective you are in actualising your goals, so make sure you are proactive and realise you are in control of your future.

2. Always have your end goal in mind

Identify your most important character values and life goals and always keep these in the forefront of your mind, with the end goal always being present in your thoughts.

3. Prioritise

To succeed in online selling, you must put yourself first. Manage yourself and your time properly. Undertake activities and tasks that help you achieve habit number 2.

4. Think Win-Win

Aim for mutually beneficial outcomes and agreements in your relationships. This is the best way to achieve long-term success.

5. Understand, then be understood

Listen carefully to others so that they reciprocate the listening and then are more likely to be influenced by you. 

6. Collaborate

The efforts of a group of people are bound to be more successful than just the effort of one. When it comes to online selling, use the strengths of the people around you to create a strong collaborative team.

7. Keep yourself healthy & mentally alert

Balance your work with replenishing energy stores and sustain good health to create a long-term, effective lifestyle. And if you also give back to society in some way, you will have sound of mind, giving you a well-rounded approach to life.

What do you think of these habits? Are you subconsciously doing any of them whilst you venture into online selling?
