Feeling Good Makes A Huge Difference To Your Business

pointsettiaIf you spent 2013 chasing your tail, joining this program and that
program , unless you became that instant millionaire, then it is time
to rethink your strategy.

There are a few steps to do this and the most important is often
overlooked as just to complicated to do.

YOUR Business Plan

Being tired all the time. Hating to have to do some chores. Not skilled
enough to do the ones you want to do!  Feeling goals are a waste of
time. New Years is coming and here we go again!

These are all signs you do NOT have a business plan.

The biggest sign is money out, sometimes a lot of it, and not enough
coming back in to cover your costs.

Now that is self-defeating! Isn’t it time to make a severe change in
how you perceive your business dealings? Even affiliates need a
business plan. As long as you are online, even if the goal is just to
make enough income to offset pensions or poor paying jobs, you really
need to consider a business plan.

Golden Tip #1:

Goals and a business plan are two separate parts of a whole.

A business plan is what the bank would need to decide you are a good
risk for a loan. That’s offline though not far off the mark for online.
You still have to proof your intentions if that dream is to become a
reality and prospects are to believe in you.

If you do not think a business plan is important, the next time
someone asks you what are you doing online and you falter for the
right response then you know. A business plan better head your
priority list for 2014.

Golden Tip #2:

Keep the business plan and goals distinctly separate in this respect.

Each goal will always be open to change where the business plan is
fairly static. Changes to a business plan will always step you up to
a new level.

A series of goals can cover the income expectations in a given period
of time, or the revolving changes you feel may be needed to reflect goal
attainment, or it might cover cost projections and a ton more.

Golden Tip #3:

One major goal too many marketers overlook is their outsourcing of
what is needed to replace what they do.

Did that one raise red flags?

The fastest route to overwhelm and lost enthusiasm is to be all things
to your business. As you grow, there will come a need to make a
decision. Do you bring in new staff to be trained to take over the load
OR because you are experienced and not so new, but know what you want,
to outsource the daily actions of your business so that you are free to
do the marketing necessary to growing its future?

Depending on your business and how much you can automate, you may need
both.  Again, as you are hopefully beginning to realize, the importance
of having a working business plan.

Enjoy the holiday period with family and friends. It is also a time of
reflection. If you need a business plan, start writing one out. If you
have a business plan, take a hard look at where you are in it and what
you need to do to improve cost vs. income projections for 2014. What
a cool way to get back that feeling good feeling about your business.

Good luck!

How To Successfully Fish For Leads

productive meetingsLead generation is and will always be, one of the hottest topics
online or off for that matter. From affiliate to Enterprise marketer, leads determine success. The need for driving more traffic to create more conversions and sales, says it shall be.

Where the 97 Per Cent Hang Out

Are you a member of FaceBook?  I am, we –ViralHost, are. I
spent an hour or so drifting through the different marketing
groups where I bet I met a good deal of those who will never
make a living worth  a lifestyle change online.

Their ads show me first, they are desperately driving for
sales
going the affiliate route. Nothing wrong with that.
Many a dollar is made from sharp marketing affiliates.
However, those sharp marketers were not what I was finding.

At first it was what they were advertising that made me
think they would never make it. A bit more checking and
the problem rose to the surface. They  throw ads out
there like a fisherman standing on shore with no idea
if he is casting to a dry hole. There is a time you
want to be that shoreline fisherman. Will tell you when
a bit later.

Finding a Responsive Fishing Hole

It’s exciting to continually haul in a load of healthy
sounding prospects. When your ad line brings in the
bites you know you are on to something great!

Making Responsive A Problem

Tons of programs out there will teach you how to bring
in new leads hopefully interested in your offers. However,
they stop there at the point of pure acquisition only.
All that work to lose the majority of possible strong
prospects because you only did the first half of Traffic
and Leads Generation.

Why? Because you did not think strategically, about
nurturing those new people with the intent of creating
lifelong customers.

You Need A Customer Relationship Management System

Getting ONE sign up is not exactly successful lead
generation nor is losing 99 out of every one hundred
for failing to implement a simple strategy that should
allow you to keep at least 56 of them.

Here is where some of the market is getting smarter.
They are encouraging you to take out some new
fangled auto-responder and play the pro game of
instant follow up. Is it enough?  You decide.

Tactics, strategies and software are a good part of
the game but just knowing about them is not enough.
Before you can engage in and use any of the above,
you need to assess how you and your enterprise
(business or business association)currently acquire
and manage those leads.

You need to become a ..

  • brand advocate for your referral program
  • consistently produce content about it
  • STOP sending same email to everyone
  • LEARN something about potential prospects
  • Qualify them in your advertising copy
  • Investigate where they hang out.
  • Use a data management system if only spreadsheet

This list will soon have you keeping the cream of your
lead generation growing and continually buying from you.
It is called following up with your new lead.
It is called giving them the same break you found you
needed to create effective lead generation.
It is called completing the lead generation cycle.

While the rest of the uneducated are out there slamming
the waters, you can now safely stand on the shore and
quietly haul in the catch they drove away.

From Loser to Professional In One Easy Decision

http://newsletters.viralhost.com/?p=194Misinformation hits the net at the speed of sound per second. New or experienced, it is easy enough to fall prey to the wrong advice simply because it sounds good coming from the voice of ‘experience.’

Danger! Tread Lightly!    You need a web site

  1.     You don’t need a website
  2.     Do a blog instead
  3.     Use FREE
  4.     Go Pro

Are you confused yet?  There is a lot more that can be added to that list. Instead of bringing up the headaches of what decision to make, let’s clear the air a wee bit.

It’s said affiliates do not need a website. Affiliates can use the promo materials the owners supply. Let the  the owners  worry about hosting and Disc space and bandwidth.

Sounds logical. Then compare what you get as an affiliate using the owner controlled site promotions. When it comes to dollars and cents, that can be anywhere from 10% to 50% depending on the program and rules.

You are stuck using their promo materials. Which can be pretty good or pretty awful, depending on how you want to market. The only thing you can change is owner/program. You have no control.

Of course, you may be comfortable being a free affiliate. It is just like the J.O. B. but your paycheck is every month IF you qualified.

What other choice do you have? It can be time consuming if you try to build a website yourself. Then again, it can be darned expensive having a web site built for you.

Blogging To Success!

How about using a Blog instead? Many a sorry head has begun a fatal trip thinking this is smart. Even if they had a website, they would need a blog to promote it. Now that part is smart thinking.

Here is where they fall down and hard. Go blog, monetize for adsense. UNLESS you are an established blogger with 100s of entries; unless your blog is set up to meet Search Engine qualifications, unless you are recognized as an authority in some niche, you are dead before you start.

If the only place you are an authority, is in your head, then shake it a few times and settle back down on earth. Reality time has a message for you.

From failed $money dreams back to the Future

Your future will be decided on the first steps you take to put you in control of your marketing, websites, blogs and all forms of promotions for any and all products you own or are offered on the net.

If you are short on the skill side for creating a working website and or blog, then you need to think on this offer.
