When you start out in home business, the first question that probably comes to mind is: “will I ever build my business to earn enough money to become financially free?” It doesn’t matter what the business, financial freedom doesn’t just happen overnight. If your business is selling products from your own warehouse or factory, selling e-books (written by you or reselling), digital download products, or offering a valuable service, there are some definite “musts” for
Whatever your business, I’ll bet you have a local market for your product or service as well as a wider and more intense one. If you have an online business, this is still relevant despite the opportunity to “spread your wings”. You need to build authority into your web presence and there is no better place to start than from a local perspective.
When targeting your market, focusing on local clients can help because you need leads and local leads are more accessible to you. In fact, marketing your website to your locality is an opportunity that you should never miss. People think that having a website, or a web presence on social media is the way
It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”. Instead of just getting on with the job and finding out by taking action, the assumption is enough to stop the person from doing what is necessary.
It’s what you do when nobody is looking that matters. You
Practice is something we all need to get to grips with in our everyday business and life. Learning the skills we use is one thing, but practice is how we perfect them. Many will “shy away” from practice because it may remind you of tasks that were seen as chores when a child. This would be more relevant for someone who learned music as an example, but the practice was something “to be avoided” because it’s “boring”. After all, we just want to play that tune, so why do I need to do scales?
Too many times, we as humans look to get to the gratifying point of what we’re doing, but forget that
None of us like selling, but so many of us have to. The question that is on my mind for this post is one that is relevant for most circumstances. Is it really wise to “convince and sell” or is it better to just sell to people who truly WANT what you have to offer rather than trying to convince them they want it?
This “convincing” is fed by desperation. How often do you see or hear “buy my stuff” or “join this fantastic money maker” or “you NEED this”? So many are DESPERATE for a sale. Too many people have the message you NEED this or that shiny object and this is where to get it. Why is this? Because they have not
“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”.
It’s said these days that one is paid by the value one gives out to the marketplace. The more value you offer to people and the more you can show that you have the solution to problems, the more likely you are to be rewarded.
As online marketers we see and give so much away for free that sometimes the perception is that there is no value to what is being offered. After all, FREE means nothing is being PAID, so how is there any VALUE in it?
A dilemma I’m sure, but one thing is certain
Bold statement, but something I believe in.
Welcome to part two of ten lessons the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. On this subject of perseverance he said: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
When this was discussed and shared in the mentoring group I am a member of, the statement made was that “perseverance is priceless”, which it absolutely is. When you are looking to make improvements in your life and business, you need to persevere towards your goals, but if you can add persistence in taking the right actions
Whatever business you have, it’s important to work in a team. Teamwork skills are important in every business to be able to get the best from your productivity as an individual or as a group of workers.
The importance of teamwork is often underestimated by some people who work in their own business. Take the situation where you have a home business doing network marketing; it’s a key part of your road to success.
Where does a choir come into this? I will explain…
There is one thing that every leader in business has to deal with is the best team building objectives. Building a team that is effective and helps to bring in more business is vital to any business success. This is becoming more apparent in the home business industry. Without an effective team of people who are not only independent business owners, but business people who also recognize the importance of team work to their own business too. Without a good team of other business people who join you in your opportunity, the business is a lot harder to be successful in.
If you have a business website or blog, then one of the key things that you need to take into consideration is that you make sure you’re posting on purpose. Your posts and pages need to have a specific purpose in mind so that you can do one of three important things, to post for leads, post for sales or post to build your reputation and brand.
