Top 5 Online Marketing Tips for Introverted Line Cooks
Are you tired of cooking for someone else? Want to finally transition to online marketing? Here’s the Top 5 Online Marketing Tips for Introverted Line Cooks.
Yes, I’m going off a limb here. . .
“Introverted Line Cooks” is a pretty narrow sub-niche.
But, I need to write this because I was once a Introverted line cook who desperately wanted to escape restaurants and earn income online.
Restaurant work is a funny thing.
It traps you into the politics of it, and a certain way of life.
Most restaurant workers party after work.
This is mainly to escape the fact that they are working their asses off in a hot, stressful environment 12 to 14 hours a day with little respect or a thank you at the end of the day.
This hard work to party harder cycle is vicious.
It led me to have a heart attack at the age of 32.
Of course, I wanted more in my life and it depressed me every time I stepped inside the back door to a kitchen for another grueling shift.
I know for a fact that there are millions of line cooks in the world that feel the same way.
I know, because I used to daydream for a better life with a lot of them.
So, why Introverted Line Cooks?
Most line cooks work “back of the house” because they didn’t want to wait tables and deal with the public.
I guess you can say that one benefit, if only one, for being a line cook is not having to deal with the public.
But, even that benefit doesn’t make it right to pay line cooks $9 to $14 an hour.
There are many line cooks who are lost and have a strong desire to finally earn money online and from home.
I know I was one of them.
I spent years making mistake after mistake on the internet, all the while having to go back to work that day.
Most line cooks work a lot, so trying to figure out how to make money online is nearly impossible.
Then, you have the line cooks who are looking for the “get-rich-quick” schemes online and that’s not what this is about.
What I am wanting to teach is that you can transition out of your restaurant job by taking an extra step each day.
These are the 5 things to do to get out of cooking the rest of your life. (I am only addressing people who are truly motivated, hard working and know that there’s no shortcuts to true success.)
1. Establish a blog
The first way to get noticed around the world for your unique talents and abilities is starting a blog. In order to earn any money online, you need a lot of people seeing your offers.
Get your name as your website’s name, like mine, and have a website redesign plan. Getting a free Blogger or WordPress.com account won’t work.
2. Pick one social media platform and dominate it
Whether you like Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat, pick one social media platform and learn all the tips and tricks about it.
Connect with others on a real level, not spamming them. You will need to gather a following of real people to later become your “tribe” of devoted fans.
3. Choose a network marketing opportunity
Even if you find minimal success with network marketing, it’s the best training and experience you can get as a new Entrepreneur.
The key is to not give up when things are slow. All businesses start out slow and there will be times when you feel like quitting.
In my experience, “breakthroughs” always happen after a period of hardship. Pick up “Go Pro” by Eric Worre once you sign up to a company you like.
4. Content Creation
The key to success in any business online is to create a presence. You want to become a unique authority by posting frequently videos, blog posts, or podcasts about what you’re about and what you plan on becoming.
Be inspiring. It’s contagious. More people will begin to look up to you when they consistently see you online.
Most people fail online because they give up in six months.
It’s more competitive online these days and in order to get some clout, you need to always show up, even if it takes a couple years.
Also, the grass is not greener by starting a new business every two weeks. Find a company or product you love and stay committed for the long haul.
I know what you’re thinking, “I don’t have anytime.”
Well, yes, that’s why you will never escape restaurants.
The key is to create a little content before or after work and post it on your blog and other social media outlets.
I worked 12 hour days, but I still wrote a blog post before work.
By posting content everyday and then working, within a couple years you will be working less at a job and more for yourself.
This transition period might seem slow, but a couple of years to make it full time online is far better than working 30 more years at a dead-end job.
It’s worth it!
