marketing strategiesIf 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.

Success Is A Journey Through Life, Choose Your Way Wisely

success is a journeyBased on the old saying “success is a journey, not a destination”, it’s something we should all take on board when we are on our journey through life and the experience in our business too.

I know there are so many people who may appear envious of others who achieve success. There are those who believe the successful people are those who manipulate people to get where they are. This is a minority whinging about a minority. How many times have you said “I wish I could have what they have got”? It’s very easy to say that you are different to them, or you haven’t had the luck or you will never be as successful. Continue reading

Persuasion And The Law Of Reciprocation

law of reciprocationYou might ask why persuasion and the law of reciprocation are relevant to a home business in particular (even though it’s relevant to all business really).

Simple answer to this – when you work from home online it’s your job to persuade people to give you their email so you can correspond with them in order to build the relationship and create sales and / or signups for your opportunity. Reciprocation is the person parting with their information and giving their permission for you to contact them. Continue reading

Think Like A Champion – It’s About What You Do When On Your Own!

Think like a champion When you have your own business it’s vital that you get things done and keep your discipline. One of the best things I heard the other day was to think like a champion. Why is that? Because a champion does MORE behind the scenes when nobody is watching than when in front of a crowd. Naturally, they perform BETTER when in front of a crowd, but the self motivation is there to get the success.

It can be a lonely time when you work at home taking the steps you want to so that you can reach your goals, but it’s also very tempting to have a rest sometimes and then you could fail to get something done that may one day be the one thing you should have done that will see you progress towards those goals.

Be Honest, Be Authentic, Be Real, Be YOU!

be authenticI 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

Struggling In Your Home Business? Don’t Panic!

If you're struggling in your business, don't panicIf 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.
