Happy Wednesday! Hope everybody is having a wonderful week. I have a simple topic this week for our Wednesday’s Online Business Mistake. I would like to talk about feedback. Yes this is very important and I know I took feedback the wrong way when I first started. This can be for business, blogging, working online or just about anybody.
Feedback is when the customer or reader leaves you their opinions. I get a lot of people leaving me their opinions. Many people leave nice opinions, some people leave their opinions that do not agree with me, and some people leave nasty opinions. I used to take the nasty opinions way too harsh. Learning that you can’t always please everybody, but to try to please the majority, will help you succeed with your online business or any business.
When I say nasty opinions, let me be clear, I am not talking about people who do not agree with me. We all have opinions and it would be boring if we all agreed. So when I say nasty I mean that they would be downright mean to me. I do not let them bother now tho.
On the other hand, when you are working online or offline with your business, you should take all feedback into some consideration. Some people have opinions that are really awesome ideas that would really help you in your work at home adventures! Some opinions may not help, but are honest opinions whether you agree or not. Now I always value all feedback from my readers. If it is too negative (as in nasty) it will be deleted, I won’t tolerate any disrespect toward me or anybody else. But most often you guys and gals all leave me helpful comments and emails. At least they are friendly, and I do take all feedback into consideration. I do not take nasty feedback personally anymore.
Just remember that while working at home or running any business, you will see good, bad and ugly feedback. Don’t let anybody get to you personally and please do consider everybody’s feedback. You never know, they may give you the best advice to take your business further. Feedback can also help you get to know your readers and customers needs, wants and likes!
