A major factor contributing to the success of your website is staying in focus.

It is very important to stay focused on your business goal, whether your website is well established or you are just starting your subscription web site. Despite all the diversions that you come across on the internet, you need to decide on your goal and stay focused all the time, because your subscribers are paying a subscription fee because they have confidence in your site and the content that you provide them.

How to stay Focused

There are three very simple things you need to do to stay focused on your business and your website goals. These are:

  • Define your focus by defining your site in about 25 words. You can take the help of other websites that have written their mission statement, or about us and develop the mission statement for your site.

  • Review your focus at the start of each day, so that you never get out of focus. A small reminder kept on your table, or c a reminder on your computer could serve the purpose of reminding you to review the focus of your website.

  • Make sure that you develop some content for your website each day, find new ideas on your theme topic and also write articles that can be used.

    After deciding on what your focus is you need to stay tuned to that focus statement. For this you will need to set goals and establish a daily routine for the website related activities.

    Set goals

    Depending on the peak traffic days for your site, decide on the days when you would upload new content on the site. The site statistics will reveal the high and lean traffic days, upload the fresh new content on the busy days for your site.

    Establish a daily routine

    For your subscription website to be a success, you must have a daily routine for the activities you need to perform for your website. A routine will be like a process that must be done each day, and when actions are defined as processes then efficiency increases man fold. You can have a ready checklist of must do activities.

    A suggested daily checklist:

  • Check the news for events relating to the theme of your subscription website. Scan the news for events relating to your theme topic. You might find some interesting clipping that you can introduce as a tip or news for your site content. You could subscribe to some news sites, where you can define your area of interest.

  • Visit your site's discussion forum each day. It helps to know what your subscribers talk about, what their concerns are and what do they want. You could answer the queries posted on your website. This will also help you to mould your content to the subscribers needs.

  • Get new ideas for the list of articles ideas. make sure you add to the list of articles and content ideas each day because the survival of your site is dependant on new ideas. Develop content on topics that the subscribers need information on.

  • Write some content each day to avoid deadline panic stage. Always have fresh content ready to be uploaded, so that there is no panic situation. This you can achieve by writing consistently.

  • Finish at least some loadable portion of an article, feature or any other report each day.

    Once you have established a daily routine and follow it sincerely, there will be less panic on the deadline days. Follow your checklist for the daily to do tasks and you will always have surplus content on your hands on the upload days. Once you have achieved the task of one periodic upload, take a break and reward yourself with a gift of either a relaxing game or a hearty meal with friends or buy yourself something you have been meaning to or anything else that will make you happy. Online publishing and subscription websites give you a better control over your time, therefore you must take advantage of it by making the best use of time available to you.
