When starting out on the long trail I took to find success on the internet, there were a lot of things I had to discover. Not all the things you see should be bought. That is why you should focus on doing one thing and doing it well. This is a type of Internet Marketers way of minimalism. What do I mean?
Well, some minimalists define this “less is more” practice as owning 100 things or less. Others who enjoy a minimalist lifestyle don’t obey a strict rule that dictates exactly how many items they have, they simply limit the number of virtual and physical possessions they obtain, and practice this ideology on an ongoing basis. However you define minimalism, there are some definite benefits to the idea that you shouldn’t be defined by the number of things you have.
1 – Lower Stress Levels
When you own fewer possessions or things to focus on, you have less stress and anxiety. You don’t have to worry as much about maintaining, protecting, repairing and insuring possessions when you own fewer of them.
2 – Your Wallet Gets Fatter
Monitor all of your purchases for 30 days especially of WSO’s. Strictly judge whether or not you need any and every one of them. You will notice more money in your bank account at the end of that month. When you own fewer things to look at or try, when you find something you have to buy, there is more money available for you to use, or channel into other directions.
3 – You Are Not Cleaning Out as Often
This is a benefit of minimalism not a lot of people think about. Obviously, the more things you own, the more things you have to clean off your digital space to see through the clutter.
4 – More Free Time
Researching, shopping, negotiating and trial periods where you can test out a product for free all require your time. You treat yourself to a ton of productive time when you are engaging in these activities less and just focus on one method of making money online.
5 – You Feel Free
When you have a lot of stuff to try, you feel anchored to those methods to see if they will work for you. People that practice a minimal marketing outlook say that one of the first feelings they enjoy is a sense of freedom, as if a weight has been taken from their back, since they don’t have to worry about so many directions to turn.
6 – You Contribute to a Cleaner Environment
Yes, you help improve the health of the planet when you go minimal. Even digital greedy consumption is leading to unsustainable earth practices. If everyone stopped making needless purchases tomorrow (think shiny object syndrome), the earth would instantly be a healthier and happier planet due to less stress and more peace od mind.
7 – You Leave More for Others
Acquiring any kind of possession can sometimes be a burden. Even if you are not adding “things” to your life for the sheer want of owning them, you are, by the very nature of supply and demand, limiting how many niches are available for other people to specialise in. Minimalism means leaving more for others, including future generations of marketers.
Think before you spend and keep focus on one thing at a time. Time saving is a huge benefit of being minimalist.
