Being Curious Instead of Frustrated and Asking Better Questions

Adventures In Digital Marketing Episode 55

The temptation to get frustrated when stuff isn’t going your way is an easy trap to fall into. I know I’ve been there. But what I’ve learned is that getting frustrated doesn’t help anything and by getting curious instead you can ask better questions and find new solutions to problems. In this episode I’m covering some of the things I’ve been working on and the latest update on the WordPress Website Challenge.

Being Curious Instead of Getting Frustrated

Hey, good morning. Welcome back to the Adventures in Digital Marketing Podcast. My name is Rob Orr. I’m the host here and wanted to catch you up a little bit on what’s been going on.

As you probably have seen, if you’re paying any attention to this podcast or you are paying any attention to what I’m doing online, you’ve noticed that I have been rolling out my WordPress course over the last couple of weeks now to give it away.

I talked about that on the last podcast episode. I’m pretty psyched about that. The videos are starting to pick up a little bit of traction, which is always encouraging. You want to see that the stuff that you’re doing is making a difference.

I remember just as an aside, I was listening to Russell’s podcast a couple weeks back. He talked about being curious instead of getting frustrated and digging in and asking better questions. That really resonated with me for this reason. It’s so easy when you’re trying to build something.

You’re one among thousands and thousands of voices that are out there that are trying to get traction. We’re trying to get their voice heard above all of the noise that is happening online. It becomes a big challenge to stay focused and to be able to make any progress.

Nobody ever said any of this stuff was easy. For me, the big challenge has been over the last few weeks since Funnel Hacking Live has really been to get curious instead of frustrated about my results. That’s what I’ve been doing.

I’ve been trying to analyze and just be curious about what’s happening, what’s working, what’s not working. Why did this particular post work when it comes to content? Why did this one not work?

And just as another example of that, one of the most popular posts on my blog that I wrote a couple years ago still gets tons of traffic and is in the top 10 of search results on Google.

I think it’s like number three or four. It’s one of those things I’m like, “Why did this resonate?” For me, that’s kind of encouraged me to do more of that kind of content.

Anyway, I’ve been trying to stay focused and stay curious and not get frustrated when things don’t work. Because if you’re doing online business for any period of time, it’s some things are going to work and some things aren’t going to work. More stuff isn’t going to work then is going to work.

I believe it was Mark Cuban that said, you can be wrong a million times. You just have to be right once. That’s what I’m focused in on. So I’ve been rolling out these videos and I’ve got a bunch of videos on my channel now on YouTube.  I’m rolling them out to my group in the Digital Marketing Mastery group.

The WordPress Website Challenge

It’s been a trend in the right direction. I’ve been really encouraged by that. What’s the next step in this process? Well, I’ve been telling you guys about the, the WordPress website challenge. I wanted to tell you a little bit more about what’s going on with that and what you can expect with that.

One of the things I’m doing here that I’m excited about that is going to help people to move forward with their online business is this challenge format where you are able to get into a challenge with a bunch of other people. Then be able to get regular, sometimes daily as it is like with the One Funnel Away Challenge. Get daily challenge tasks that you need to complete.

That’s what the WordPress website challenge is going to be. So this is going to be something that is delivered completely via email. It’s going to be in relation to the videos that are already out there that are free on YouTube.

The challenge though is going to be a much tighter, much more focused thing. There’s going to be some additional materials on that. I’m excited about that because I think it’s going to really help people accelerate their online business efforts and start to make a big difference.

What does that mean for you if you’re interested in doing this challenge? Well, over the course of a short period of time, you’ll be able to go through this challenge and build out your website.

Then in addition to that, there are going to be more materials that I’m going to be providing. Like for instance, my WordPress course doesn’t cover anything at all on branding.

The WordPress website challenge is going to cover some stuff on branding. They’ll be stuff on mindset and getting your heart and your mind right so that you can get into it and be successful with it.

You have to come into these challenges with a certain mindset that if you aren’t dialed in and focused on getting to the end of it, it can be overwhelming and you can end up dropping out. I don’t want. Don’t want anybody dropping out. I don’t want anybody not making it all the way through the challenge.

I’m going to have some things that are going to focus in on helping you through that. Then some additional materials. Then what we’re also going to do is give you the opportunity to purchase some additional, supplemental materials.

Like for instance, you can purchase a bundle that is going to be a collection of assets that are going to help you in this entire process. It’s going to be, you’ll be able to get a physical copy of the book, a digital copy of the book, which by the way is no longer free.

The WordPress checklist, the homepage guide, the About Me page guide, the hosting and domain guides and a bunch of stuff like that, where you’ll be able to purchase and do that. Then we’re going to also have an option where you can join a group of other creators and online entrepreneurs who are working on trying to take their efforts to the next level by getting to a small group coaching package where you’ll be able to opt-in for a certain charge per month. I have some ideas, not really quite ready to let that out of the bag yet because I haven’t finished that funnel entirely.

So, you’ll have all of those things. It gives you that level of depth and engagement that you want to have. With the coaching thing, we’re going to have a private Facebook group. We’re going to have weekly calls.

We’re going to have accountability and some things that are going to be supplementary that are only available to those in the coaching group to be able to get that extra level of depth that you need in order to get through from start to finish. Not only just build a website, a website is just one of the pillars of digital marketing.

It’s going to be something that’s going to take you to the next level as a whole. I’m really excited about this. I know I’ve been talking about this WordPress Website Challenge for a while and I’ve hit some delays because of some challenges that I’ve faced in my personal life with my family, and more specifically my mom.

Getting Involved with WordPress Website Challenge

You can go back and couple episodes and listen to that episode, if you’re interested in hearing more about that. We have got life a little bit back in order now. I’m able to spend more time working on this. What does that mean for you?

Well, you can get involved with this. If you go to wpwebsitechallenge.com. Get on the waiting list there for this challenge. You’ll have the opportunity to get in. I’m excited about this. I think as far as a funnel goes, just to kind of talk about the other side of the coin. I think in terms of a funnel and a sales process.

I think this is going to be a much better flow and fit for my target audience and the people that I’m trying to help. It will give them some additional opportunities to get deeper level engagement with me and a deeper level engagement with content and will ultimately help people to get their stuff off the ground much faster. That’s what I’m working on right now.

It’s two things, it’s always producing content. There are new videos. I’ve got two new videos because today is Tuesday.

If you go to my YouTube channel at roborr.tv then you’ll see that the newest Quick Tip Tuesday is up there talking about the three different kinds of traffic. Then I’ve got another video that will be up a little later this morning.

That is about is the third pillar of digital marketing which is creating outstanding offers. That was a Facebook Live that I did for the Digital Marketing Masters Group on Facebook. I’m rolling that out for everybody to be able to take a look at that there.

Join Digital Mastery Facebook group
