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.

If you’re taking your business online one of the most important things you should do is to develop a list of abilities and skills that you can use in your business. “I know that” I hear you say, but you would be surprised how many people spend so much time and money going from program to program, or “guru” to guru to try to find the solutions to their problems.
What is required is to combat the FEAR of doing and apply what you learn to find your own formula for success in your business. Before you embark on anything you should research the program or expert to see if there is a “fit” for you. Then, after signing up to the training or program, you need to test each thing you are taught and apply the strategies so you can see whether they work for you. Have confidence in what you learn and believe that you know more than you think you know. Continue reading
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
What DO you hate about…. your job or your life or? Be honest, no matter what you are doing, there will be something you don’t like about what you do in life or as a job. Hate may be a bit severe a term, but there is certainly something you don’t like to do.
Why am I asking you this question? There is a very good reason for this. I have noticed that many people, when confronted with something that they don’t like to do, simply don’t do it. Take my case – Continue reading
