What you give is what you get, give and you will receive or any other analogy of the same thing is completely relevant to where we are today. I don’t know if you’re religious or not, but with it being in the Pentecost Season in UK, it’s all about gifts and giving. The gift that God gave on this day according to all Christian belief is of the Holy Spirit. This made me think about how much online business is based around gifts and giving. It doesn’t matter what your religion, the principle of what I’m going to discuss is the same. That’s to give FREELY. Continue reading
- Customer / Prospect commitment and consistency to buy or join you and…
- Personal commitment and consistency in your own business.
As these are 2 pretty important things to talk about, this will come in 2 parts. I will focus on part 1, which is the way to get the customer / prospect’s commitment to you and consistency to buy from you and maybe join you in your business opportunity. This psychology can be used for almost any business to get more customers or prospects, but I urge you to remain ethical in you approach as you will then be more likely to attract more people to you.

If you’re new to online marketing and have just decided to try to get more leads and customers / signups for your business you need to work out which of several marketing strategies is the best for you. Because of all the types there are, this can lead to overwhelm and many of us get stuck and then the business falters.
Some of us will go back to what we have already been taught and, because there is little to no success, will give up on their dreams and go back to the life they are used to. This is possibly the case with up to 90% of people who take up the mantle to expand out into the online world. Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but I have experienced people coming to me and asking me to endorse them and their skills even when I don’t know them. At least do some research and connect with the person to confirm that what you’re saying is the truth before you endorse them. I don’t feel comfortable if someone endorses me with out knowing me and what I can do for people. Don’t fake things, instead be real, be honest, be authentic and be YOU! Continue reading
This particular subject covers two different areas, That is both questions you ask yourself and questions you ask your prospects.

When we decide to start a home business, most of us are eager to get moving and achieve the success we know we’re capable of.

If you’re in a position that you believe you’re struggling to get leads and grow your home business, the best advice I can give you is Don’t Panic! The tendency to do just that is overwhelming and then all you do is to promote without thinking and then you can be in trouble. Why? Because people will see you coming and run the other way.
What we all so in the situation of panic is to keep pitching our business and our friends get fed up of it and then they distance themselves from you. Sound Familiar? I have experienced this too and so I had to look for another way.
We are all told to work our “warm market” and then expand it out to include referrals and from those people so we can get more sign ups and grow our business. The problem these days is that there are so many ways to promote, we forget about the people who are subject to the constant bombarding of business offer and make money schemes available that are “rammed down our throats” to coin a phrase.

I doesn’t matter what business you are in, if you are required to recruit people or build a healthy client list, you need both communication and connection. Not necessarily in that order, but each of these are vital to be able to develop a successful business, especially where you need to network.
Have you ever noticed how the leaders in your particular organization have a particular “aura” around them? Some of these people have this naturally and some work hard at it, but the confidence they have not only helps them to communicate with ease, they very often connect with people before they even talk to them because of this. Experience over time and their energy, controlled and targeted to their goals have helped them to achieve this.
Communication Versus Connection
In these days of social media, email and many other forms of electronic communication, it’s very easy to communicate and yet still feel isolated and alone.
As home business owners, we need to make a connection to be able to attract people to us so they feel comfortable working with us in order to create the success we are all looking for.
So How Do We Use The Communication Connection Effectively?
Simple really, we should keep in consistent contact with our prospects and build rapport and trust. Connect with them through providing value and showing that we are available to help them at any time. Don’t pitch to them constantly. Do be understanding and have a conversation in you correspondence with them to build that trust.
This doesn’t mean that you don’t provide offers that will make you money. It generally means that what you offer them will be valuable to them should they want to buy. Good consistent communication will lead to a connection if you adopt this kind of technique. Nobody likes to be bombarded with offer after offer just because they have given permission for you to contact them. Be more subtle and respect your prospect and you will build a great following of people who will thank you for what you Do offer them.
I hope this will help you to effectively adopt the communication connection.
To the future
