  4. Maintain a Social Network Presence

Change your Environment

Working from home creates a relaxed atmosphere. There are so many different things you can do at home: watch T.V., eat, sleep, play with your kids and/or walk the dog; if you find that your motivation about working from home is slowly depleting move your workstation. Try working in a different environment outside of your home, say the nearest coffee shop or your neighbor’s house. You will be surprised at how a little change of environment can bring you new motivation and inspiration to help improve your business.

This is the same for an offline business. Ever notice how your house feels like a new home when you remodel it or just simply rearrange the furniture?  If capable, move stuff around in the office, rearrange your desks, throw old things away, or buy a plant! Every little thing you can do to make your environment a more conducive work area the better. You will feel happier and be more productive than you were before.

Keep an Open Rapport with Employees

These people work for you and you for them! Make sure you keep them happy. Happy employees lead to better business. At some point in time there has been an authority figure in your life where you just wanted to make that person proud! This same emotion you felt for that person is the same type of emotions your employees should feel for you. To achieve this feeling you need to talk to them, know whom they are as a person, what they like to do in their free time. Building healthy relationships with your employees not only will make your work environment healthier but it will also improve your business. Whether it is an online business or an offline business, happy employees always work harder and are easier to work with.

Fun Things To does With Your EmployeesWinner

  • Weekly Contest
  • Monthly BBQ’s
  • Friday Feed on the Boss
  • Guess my Baby Picture
  • Team Games

Stay up To Day on New Trainings

Outside of the basic training, what do you have to offer your employees to make their life easier in the work place? Being the head person in charge of your business there is always some knowledge you have to offer to your employees, as well as some knowledge your employees can offer you. Have team building sessions and give your employees the chance to voice concerns they have or things they are lacking. This is not to say that all things mentioned need to be handled but listen to what they say and execute as necessary.  Include them in your business and things you are learning along the way. Send out weekly emails teaching them something new. Make them feel as though they are the business, because in actuality they are the ones running the company for your, or at least the grunt work.

Social Network Presence

If you are not aware of what Facebook is you have already lost. Being active on social networks is a great way to see how your customers interact with your company, the good and the bad. It is important that your company have some type of social network presence. This is one of the key aspects when learning how to improve your business.

Top Company Social Networking Sites

Being active on any one, or all, of these social networking sites will allow you to connect with your followers. You will be able to cater to their needs, as necessary.

Listen, Understand, Execute

Listen to what your followers/audience/customers are saying.

Understand what exactly it is that they are looking for or need.

Execute the proper plan to get them what they want.

People enjoy talking to, buying from and interacting with people! Let’s be honest, how many times do you hit zero on the automated machine? I know I hit zero until someone picks ups. Now if you and I both are hitting zero how many others do you think hit zero? If I had to guess I would say 80% of the population hits zero until they hear a person. So, be human on your social networking sites !

In conclusion, if you able to incorporate at least one tip a month on How to improve your business, I am sure you will see a change for the better. These are simple things you can do for yourself and your employees. If you are your own employee then take these tips as a stepping stone to change your outlook on your life and how to can live better and build a better you!

Paid Adversting Solo Ads

The Name of The Game is Traffic

traffic

The Name of the Game is Traffic !

In order to sell anything or gain followers you need to create traffic to your blog or porduct being offered. This is the only way people will know about what you are offering !

Where does Traffic Come From ?

There are two forms of traffic.

Paid Advertising and Organic Traffic

Paid Advertising Paid advertising

Pay per click (PPC) (also called cost per click) is an internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites, in which advertisers pay the publisher (typically a website owner) when the ad is clicked. Farris et al have defined it simply as “the amount spent to get an advertisement clicked.”[1]

Continue Reading…

There are two main forms of Paid Advertising Online.

  • PPC or CPC
  • Solo Ads

PPC or CPC is the main form of advertising. Pay per click. This benefits you if your are sending traffic to a squeeze page (landing page) to collect an email and name to be marketed products on the back end. Or sending a clicker to the direct offer you have.

A few services that offer PPC advertising are:

  • Facebook
  • Google
  • Bing

* An Impression is how many times your ad is shown on a particular website . Impressions are typically cheaper than clicks and ensure you ad is shown to a bigger audience. Clicks are not guaranteed. 

Solo Ads (email advertising) is a newer form of advertising that is not known by many .

What is a Solo Ad ?

Solo Ads benefit you if you are marketing on a list serve that is interested in your products or blog that you have to offer.

Make sure the list you are marketing on is interested in what you have to offer. It is a waste of time and money to market on a list serve that is not interested in your product.

–>> Click Here For A Premium Solo Ad Provider <<–

Be weary of solo ad providers that offer 40,000 clicks for $60 .

A good Solo Ad provider will charge anywhere from .50 – $3.00 for a premium or  genuine click.

If the offer looks to good to be true it probably is. Most list serves promising an astronomical amount of clicks are probably sending your links to spam bots. These clicks are not genuine but they will most definitely fill the order you provide. So if your sole purpose is to get clicks , then spam bot all you like ! I would not advise this.

Questions To Ask Your Solo Ad Provider (if not already listed on the site)

  • What is your Standard opt in rate ?
  • Average Cost per Click ?
  • Has your list been exposed the product I am offering ?

Organic Traffic Organic Traffic

Web traffic which comes from unpaid listing at search engines or directories is commonly known as “organic” traffic. Organic traffic can be generated or increased by including the web site in directoriessearch engines, guides (such as yellow pages and restaurant guides), and award sites.

Continue Reading …

Organic traffic is the unpaid form of traffic. This traffic is beneficial for the simple fact that the traffic directed to your site is from individuals who are seeking out the information or product you have to offer. Great ! You have individuals who want your stuff ! This is an easier sell if that is what you are looking to do.

Ways to increase your Organic Traffic :

  • Publishing your website on directories
  • Social Syndication
  • Keyword & SEO optimization
  • Providing Valuable related Content to your keywords
  • Providing different forms of media on your website (video, links to other websites on the content provided, quotes , act. )

Continue Reading More about On Page Seo… 

Creating traffic is what is going to get you the results you are looking for ! Directed traffic is the best traffic (traffic specific to your offer). This traffic will yield the best results.

Be sure that the content you are providing is genuine. Search engines keep track of how long individuals spend on your page. If they are coming and leaving quickly this reflects negatively on your site. You have about 10sec to “wow” your audience ! Do so.

Apply the knowledge learn and ask questions when necessary.

Good Luck !

How I’m generating 1,000 TARGETED, FREE, biz op leads A DAY!

The Search For How To Generate Good Leads

Good Leads, How To Generate Leads

Hey guys and gals,

In my never ending quest to find the holy grail of good leads, and how to generate them, I’m always looking for high converting offers to promote on the front end to generate enough money to cover my cost to advertise (aren’t we all) and build my list (again..duh) So far, I’ve done “decently” well.. Usually I’m able to re-coop about 75% of my initial cost to advertise on the front end. In turn lowering my CPL (cost per lead) costs dramatically, with the hopes to recoup the remaining costs, and eventually hit profits on the back end.

How I’m generating good leads 1,000+ TARGETED, FREE, biz op leads A DAY!

This strategy has been working, but to be honest not as fast as I would like. Especially since lets say for instance, I spend $1000 on a solo ad promoting an affiliate offer. I then am averaging making $750 in sales while adding to my list, which is great. But then I have to wait for not only the time it takes to build a relationship with my list, and then make my back-end sales. BUT also the time it takes for the Affiliate company to pay your your affiliate sales (ie. that $750). My affiliate company is awesome, and pays in a timely manner, every time, but that still doesn’t negate the fact that I have to wait a full week to be paid for my sales the week before.

So even though I’m making $750 in sales right away, or even if the offer I’m promoting breaks me even. There is still a long period of time I have to wait in order to receive my commissions, to then re-invest that money into more advertising(Which is something I recommend everyone do).

Good leads and how to generate them–1,000+ TARGETED, FREE, biz op leads A DAY!

Now this is a HUGE PROBLEM when I’ve found a really great converting/high paying affiliate product. *oh woe is me*

How to Generate Leads, Email Processing HomeBiz

How To Generate Leads

When I’m breaking even or in some cases even becoming profitable on my front end sales, I personally want to SCALE UP and re-invest that money back into more advertising immediately. Unfortunately, with the time it takes for networks to process your sales and pay you out, the ship might have already sailed.

I’ve been looking for a solution to this problem. And aside from being personal friends with affiliate company owners and getting them to wire you your money early, most people are stuck in Limbo…

LUCKILY though, I have found the affiliate product that has solved this conundrum……… Good Leads, and how to Generate these Leads???

Email Processing HomeBiz… Yes, Email Processing HomeBiz

You might be wondering what the heck I’m talking about, but here’s the link for you to understand more and how you can get started literally in less than an hour:

Good Leads and How to Generate Leads: Email Processing HomeBiz

Essentially its a High Converting Offer, with immediate payout straight to your account (via PayPal). And has been working amazingly well for me. Not only is the money I’m spending to advertise my site capturing me good leads, It’s also CONVERTING ME SALES, and at an awesome rate as well. So much so that I haven’t ran a paid ad for it yet, and not been in profits, on the front end ALONE! ** I still have my followups :)**

That would be great news in itself, but what is really amazing is that the money paid to me for sales of this program come straight to my PayPal account! So I’m able to immediately use that money earned, into purchasing more ads (or food or clothes or whatever you want, I guess its your money to do with what you choose)! Thus Building my LIST with GOOD LEADS….. FOR FREE…Over 1000+ worth…. EVERY DAY.. I can tell, you like the sound of this email processing homebiz right?

Getting dressed in the morning for your day gets you in the money making mindset. You are a business professional in your own home. We can all agree that when we are fully dressed there is some sort of essence that goes along with it. You feel fresh and ready to work. Versus in our pjs when we are relaxed.

Clear Intentions for 2013

This is a fresh new year, most people take a moment to look at their current situations and make assessments on what things will be different for the new year and what things will remain the same.

All too often this yields a list of resolutions or open ended promises/wishes that we make to ourselves in hopes of having different results as we start a new calendar. Sadly these resolutions evaporate just as quickly as they were created and we are back to square numero uno.

In life and in business it is extremely important to set clear intentions, not resolutions.

Dictionary .com defines intention as:

[in-ten-shuhn] noun

1. an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.

2. the end or object intended; purpose.

3. intentions.

a. purpose or attitude toward the effect of one’s actions or conduct: a bungler with good intentions.

b. purpose or attitude with respect to marriage: Our friends are beginning to ask what our intentions are.

4. the act or fact of intending.

In other words, your intentions set not only a clear goal, but a plan in which to achieve that goal that you can clearly visualize yourself achieving(mouth full I know).

With that Set your Intentsions and make them clear ! No need to be confused by what it is that you want to achieve !
