Home Business Exposed – A Realistic System That Can Boost Your Income in 90 Days

Joining a home based business in the 21st century can be a very difficult task to complete.
There are thousands of different businesses to choose from, how do you know what will work, who's trying to scam you and who is the real deal. I have been in over 20 different home based business opportunities over the last 5 years. I jumped from company to company trying to find the right one that fits me and my needs. Most of the companies out there work very well, but in my opinion, it just takes too long to make a significant income. I was fed up with corporate America and I wanted out.

The Key to making your home based business work, is finding one with a built in sales and marketing system with a call center included. This allows the new comer who is not ready, to start marketing his / her self to quickly take advantage of the top income earners, and let them take care of all the calling and explaining while you learn how to become a leader and master marketer .

Other things that boost your chances for success are:

-Turn-key marketing solutions where you can just plug in and start advertising.

These take a little more time to see result sometimes, but it gives you the free time to learn how to market on your own, while still having some type of exposure out there.

-Online and offline marketing:

This allows you to maximize your exposure. You can establish a presence online and offline, which most people wont do. Most people are lazy, so they will just stay with the plug in play advertising. IF YOU MAXIMIZE BOTH, you will fly past your competition.

-Must have daily training, company wide, and smaller team training:

This keeps you plugged into the company and keeps you up to date on what's going on. The smaller team training will help you focus in on the areas you need extra assistance on, with out a big crowd involved

-They must know their conversion Ratios:

They will be able to give you a good explanation on

How many visitors = leads, and

How many leads = sales.

That is very good information to know. Knowing that information allows you to be in a position to do your due diligence on what to expect, and keeps your frustration levels down

Once you find your perfect turn-key marketing and sales system, you should follow some of these tips.

-Always set your goals in 90 day increments. That way you give what ever advertising medium you take, sufficient time to circulate and drip on the customers

-When you decide to start learning your own marketing, break down your goals into daily and weekly tasks. Do not overwhelm yourself; Focus on one or two major advertising methods at a time.

Example,

Mon- Complete 5 classified ads and submit them / 5 forum posts

Tue- Email 50 new people with social networks

Wen- Start direct mail campaign

These simple tasks will keep you very organized and on track. Keep that same plan up for 90 days and you will see some incredible results.

By picking a Home Based Business with a Turn-Key Sales and Marketing System, in addition to following some of the tips above will put you hundred are steps in front of your competition.

Why Sell Coaching Instead of eBooks?

Why is it important that you market your coaching program differently than you might market an eBook or an affiliate program?

I believe the biggest reason for that is that with an eBook or an affiliate product, you are looking for either a one time sale, or you are using that sale as the beginning (or part of) a funnel series.

But with coaching, you are not looking for a one-time sale, instead you are looking for a relationship with someone.

Someone who trusts you enough to make more than one one time payment. Someone who will pay you month after month for the coaching you deliver, and will continue to come back to you for advice.

And in my opinion, that is very different than a one time purchase.

So what are some of the things you would do when marketing for the purpose of selling coaching?

1) Your marketing should be focused on presenting you as the expert, not as a seller of books and services. You see, people come to you for help because you are an expert at what they need help with, not because you sell an eBook on the topic. If they want an eBook on the topic, there are plenty of those around. But if they want personal help, they want it from someone who is an expert, not just an author.

2) Your marketing should be done in such a way that you are able to build a long term relationship with someone, starting immediately, not waiting until they become a paying client. One way I do that is I give people an opportunity to download a free eBook or recording from me in exchange for joining an email list. On the email list, I give them opportunities to communicate directly with me via email (basically getting free coaching). This allows me to build trust and rapport with people in my niche, and when some of those individuals is ready for coaching, they come to me instead of going to someone else.

That is critical – because coaching is based on a relationship, not a one time sale.

3) Your marketing must be consistent with the image you want to present to your niche. You see, one of the mistakes I see many coaches making is that they say they teach one thing – but in their own email campaign or sales material they are doing something else. If what you teach is good enough for your client, it should be good enough for you. So do what you say!

I’d like to take a moment here and talk about why it is better to package your knowledge and experience together as a coaching program rather than an eBook.

You see, most people will hardly read your eBook. They might read a chapter or 2, then think, this is good stuff, but I don’t have time for it.

Of course they have the time, just not the patience to read!

The bottom line is, they don’t get the results they are looking for with the eBook, so they end up looking to someone else to coach them.

Because what they really want is results, not an eBook (or a coaching program) – they really want results.

But they aren’t going to get the results from just reading your eBook.

They need your help – real help, you taking them by the hand and working with them personally.

And if you present yourself as simply having an eBook that has all the answers – you are actually cutting your clients short, because they aren’t really getting the results they need.

Think about it from your own perspective. Do you learn better by learning it from an eBook, or from working with someone personally that can tell you where you are going wrong, point you in the right direction, even motivate you from time to time if you are discouraged?

Of course you learn better when working with someone personally – so I definitely recommend doing just that for your clients – make it easy for them to work with you personally as the first way they work with you, instead of trying to get them to buy an eBook first.

Book Review of "My Beloved World"

The memoir of Sonia Sotomayor in “My Beloved World” was a refreshing reminder that character is a building block of success.

Sonia’s parents were from Puerto Rico, where they had very humble beginnings on each side of the family. This appreciation formed Sonia’s character from a young age. Although she was naturally smart and determined, it was her character that got her where she is today. I suspect that God has also had His hand over her life.

Sonia had juvenile diabetes and gave herself the insulin injections from the age of eight. She attended Parochial schools which her mother worked long hours to afford, while raising children as a widow, living in the projects. Sonia’s father had been an alcoholic and died when she was in grade school.

Sonia had a marriage for a few years that ended in divorce. She never remarried or had children.

Although discrimination could be a part of life, Sonia never let it get to her. She focused on her education and achieved a college degree, law school, becoming a District Attorney, judge and United States Supreme Court Justice.

I have never paid much attention to or understood politics and the news. I don’t know her stance on various topics. I can tell from her memoir, that she seems to be cool, calm and collected under pressure, which is a characteristic we could all improve on. Even when being discriminated against or insulted by a person with prejudice, she has been the better person by not returning those words. Instead, she uses wisdom to discern the right words to address the situation.

Without knowing her, from this memoir, I respect the grace with which she has used in the course of her life. She is a role model to anyone who is willing to take the road of wisdom, rather than folly. She learned to listen and choose her words wisely. Although she encountered the obstacles of discrimination, she got the attention of people along the way who saw something in her.

You never know who is watching you. You can seek the trappings of material wealth and fame by taking shortcuts, or you can stay steady and focused, grateful for your blessings and work hard and stand for something. Those who seek temporary gratification may get what they are seeking, without even considering that there may be something better out there. Those who appreciate and respect life may be pleasantly surprised when that once in a lifetime opportunity comes along, like being appointed to the Supreme Court. Good for you Sonia. Well deserved.

Superdry Clothing – Sizes Explained

The problem is that Superdry sizes ‘appear to be different’ from other brands in the market (I’ve put that in inverted commas for a reason). That and the internet is plagued of misleading information on this topic. I’ve decided to sort this out once and for all. Or at least until Superdry change things up again. Superdry is actually very accurately sized. I know you weren’t expecting to hear that so I will explain why.

The Problem with Standards

There is an international standard for clothing sizes. The International Standards Organization, also known as ISO. They are the governing body for all sorts of standards, including a standard measure for the sizing of clothes. This should, in theory, give us a reference to be able to accurately choose clothes and convert between US, UK, European and other sizes. But it doesn’t. There are problems with the international standards.

Getting too deep into these standards is beyond the scope of this article so I’m going to cut to the chase. There problem comes in two parts; Using letter codes like Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large and clothing manufacturers taking liberties with the established standards. They aren’t obliged to conform to the standard so there isn’t likely to be any change in the future. When compared to other clothing brands, a good rule of thumb is that Superdry clothing is approximately one size smaller. They are sized to fit properly but as most other clothing manufacturers are getting more and more generous with their sizing, it’s better to go for one size bigger in Superdry clothes. For example, if you are usually a medium then you buy a large in Superdry.

Superdry Size Chart

Superdry clothing complies with the international standards; the problem is that other clothing companies don’t. Superdry also use letter codes, so there must be a look up table to convert a size from Small, to chest size or women’s dress size. If you’ve looked on their website you would have noticed that there isn’t such a helpful table anywhere to be found. I’ve developed a Superdry size chart.

Men’s Superdry Clothing Size Chart

Sizes are chest sizes, measured in inches.

Extra Small = 36″

Small = 38″

Medium = 40″

Large = 42″

Extra Large = 44″

Extra Extra Large = 46″

Men’s waist sizes are pretty straight forward. They are all in inches, the standard measure so you shouldn’t have any problems selecting your size.

Women’s Superdry Size Chart

The UK and US dress sizes are matched to the ISO standards and might not necessarily match up to the size you would normally buy in other clothing brands. It is intended that you go by the actual measurements (in inches).

Extra Small = UK Size 8/ US Size 4 = Bust 34″, Waist 25.5″, Hip 36.5″

Small = UK Size 10/ US Size 6 = Bust 34″, Waist 26.5″, Hip 37.5″

Medium = UK Size 12/ US Size 8 = Bust 35″, Waist 27.5″, Hip 38.5″

Large = UK Size 14/ US Size 10 = Bust 36″, Waist 28.5″, Hip 39.5″

Buying Superdry Clothing

Probably the best advice I can give you is try before you buy but what if you don’t have a store near you? Is this case you are left with the only option, to shop online where you can’t try the item on before you buy it. There are exceptions however. Some stores, like Nucleus, offer free return postage on internet orders so in effect you can try the stuff on and send it back if it doesn’t fit. It’s a slight hassle getting to the post office but at least it won’t cost you anything.

4 Ways to Make Money on the Web

Money, money, money. We all LOVE it. To everyone it represents power, freedom and happiness. Money makes the world go around.

For many online marketers, this has become a reality. They all have one thing in common. They claimed their stake in the online world.

The web is now bigger than it ever was. Heck, it's already the fastest, coolest, easiest-to-use way to do online purchases as well as interact with anyone on the globe!

This has opened a massive new world for entrepreneurs to make money from the internet, purely because the internet is filled with activity! The internet is SO interactive that dozens of ways have surfaced for people to make a profit from it.

So how do you claim your piece of Multi Trillion Dollar eCommerce pie?

I'll now outline the several ways in which you can make money on the internet, starting with the lowest paying, to the highest paying. While the lower paying methods will not make you rich, they can add some extra money in your pocket. The highest paying methods will unduly have you smiling all the way to the bank.

Method 1 – Surveys

Surveys typically involve you sitting in front of your PC answering an endless amount of questions. Survey companies do pay money, but not nearly enough to help you pay serious bills. Females are the # 1 target of survey companies, simply because filling out surveys are non-techie. Women like that type of thing. You can start earning money with surveys right off the bat, but please do not make this your sole source of income. Make sure the survey company is legit by Googling their name. You can also ask around in forums.

Method 2 – Data Entry

Pretty much the same as surveys. Data Entry however pays a way better than surveys, but it's difficult to justify it's payment with the amount of work needed to be done. You'll have to fill in hours upon hours of information into online forms. Most people end up being institutionalized because of doing data entry.

Just kidding. If you are someone that loves sitting around the house all day and you love typing, then data entry programs are perfect for you. Just make sure you sign up to reputable programs. Google a bit and find out what other people recommend.

OK so the above methods do make money online, but they have 2 major flaws. One being that the payments are extremely low and secondly, you have to work like a farmer going broke.

So are there any other solutions that can help you make more money online than you thought possible?

Yes there are!

Method 3 – Create your own information product

Info products are what makes internet marketers millionaires. But only a select few internet marketers really make the cut. Developing your own product can be a simple process, or it can be a horrible experience. Are you familiar with the PDF? Most online marketers start out by writing an ebook about something that helps people solve their problems.

Then they join a merchant account as well as an affiliate network and try to promote their product online. Most of them fail because they lack a list of high profile contacts. I'm referring to JV Partners. JV Partners are existing valuable people who can help you successfully launch a product. They can drive thousands of prospects to your product sales page in a few hours because they usually own a HUGE list of prospects which they can email information to.

The trouble is getting them to promote your product. It's not easy and most of them simply ignore you. It was easier a few years ago, but today it is extremely difficult getting a high profile player to help you out.

You'll be left all alone. Do not get me wrong. Having your own product certainly puts money in the bank FAST and by the pile, but making it very BIG is a different story. You'll need to network with some high profile people by visiting forums or even add them on Facebook. Then have a normal conversation with them. Do not ask about product promotions. Always ask if you can do something for them first. Once you have established a good relationship, THEN you can move onto phase 2 where you ask them if they can help you out by asking them if they can promote you.

Method 4 – Affiliate Marketing

This method is my personal favorite and earns me the most. There are hundreds of affiliates who are making more money per year than the highest paid doctors. Top super affiliates earn more than $ 2 Million per year. This just shows you that the power of affiliate marketing is beyond belief.

So what is affiliate marketing? It's very simple, yet deadly effective. It's a simple system where you promote other people's or companies' product on the internet. You do not need to own or stock the products. You simply grab the referral link from the company's free affiliate program and then promote their website / product. If someone clicks through the link and makes a purchase on the other side, you'll make a commission.

You might be doubful and think that people will not buy, but you will not believe how many really do. Millions of people go online each and every day and more than 50% of them purchase at least one item. It has been estimated that 1 out of every 100 people will usually buy something. Now do you know how easy it is to get thousands of people to read your "pre-sell" and click through your affiliate link? It's very easy.

Affiliate Marketing is honest and legit and you too can make serious money by taking action today. Almost every single online "money making" program will be in the form of an affiliate program. Even Google's contextual advertising system is an affiliate program.

The above 4 methods encompasses all the ways in which you can make money online and so it's up to you to choose which one will fit you the best.

The "Make Money Online" Myth

"What's he talking about? People DO make money online!"

Of course they do. I'm not suggesting in any way that it's not possible to make money online. In fact, I've been making a decent amount of money online myself for the last 4 years, continue to do so today … and hope to continue to do so well into the future.

"So … what's your point?"

Over the past few years, with all the progress in making the internet accessible to the common man (through blogs, cheap web hosting, simple web page creation tools, social networking, etc) … internet marketing gurus have made a ton of money Selling a bill-of-goods to the public. It goes something like this:

"Lost your job due to downsizing? Unhappy in your current job? Eager to make more working from home than you can make slaving 40-60 hours for" the man "?? Buy my ebook and I'll unlock the mysteries of" making Money online "for you, and you'll be independent and wealthy sooner than you dreamed possible. Then you can retire, drive your new Lexus and spend your days on the beach drinking pina coladas …"

Let's face it … that does not sound half bad. But a lot of people have fallen for this hook, line and sinker … and there's now a huge group of people who do not talk about creating or providing products or services that actually help people. Rather, they've fallen in love with the rather generic (and lame) idea of ​​"making money online". But … what does that mean mean, anyway? Not much.

Once again, a qualification: SOME people CAN transfer the kind of work they do to an online marketplace and do quite well with that … and in fact, if you do not do it, you might well be at a competitive disadvantage. As a professional voice talent, I work for clients all over the world who find me through my web site. And, for the most part, voiceover work is one of those jobs that does not suffer from geographical limitations. You may be in a similar situation, and in such a case, you NEED to seriously consider your need for a web presence, and to educate yourself on issues like Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) to reach your potential Client base.

But, that's not what I'm talking about here. The "make money online" gurus tell you that you do not have to know anything about a certain topic to use it to make money online. They'll teach you to "play the edges" via niche marketing … by creating a web site on some "hot" topic or product, loading it with ads, RSS feeds and affiliate links for related products … and Then dragging traffic to your site by hook or by crook: ranking well for long-tail search phrases or buying dirt-cheap ads … making your money back plus more ad clicks or affiliate payouts once the visitors arrive and either purchase a product Or leave in frustration … a system known as "arbitrage".

"Yes, I've heard most of that before. And I still do not know what your point is …"

Well, with that background set … we can finally get down to the point.

The idea of ​​embracing hot topics or products that you do not know much about … cobbling together relevant resources, tossing up web sites or blogs and grabbing traffic wherever you can find it CAN work for awhile. But is it any kind of decent long-term strategy? Hardly. Here are the weaknesses of this as a way of "doing business":

  • You're going to be chasing hot topics and shifting market trends for the rest of your business life … not building a resource with any shelf life. Translation: High burnout factor.
  • The market continues to get more crowded and the sophistication level of the people doing this continues to increase … there are only so many hot topics and products around at any given time … and window for these things can come and go before you Can even respond. Very few of these "niches" hang on for long. I've heard that 3 months is fairly standard.
  • Google and the other search engines are getting better and better at weeding from their search results sites that offer no real added value (and, as if that's not bad enough …) they're providing faster and easier routines for your competitors to report you For being pretty worthless in a gambit to try to get you penalized.
  • For the big commercial entities that already dominate these markets in the real world, there are new tools coming online that they can afford and you can not (try $ 6500 a pop for absolutely EXHAUSTIVE keyword research!) … and soon enough, they Will absolutely OWN all those long-tail keyword breadcrumbs that you're currently using to rake in traffic. They can not afford not to. You can not count on these slumbering guys to stay clueless forever.

I realize that many people do not really care about this kind of appeal. They'll "take what they can get" now … and they figure they'll stay a few steps ahead of the game and can always make a decent living that way. That's fine.

But the point of this article is to challenge those of you who can see the logic of a good long-term strategy in building a business … who can see that there is a certain "scammy" nature to grabbing short-term profits and Disappearing into the night. I'd like to suggest that there's a better way:

We all have areas of knowledge and interest. We may not be top-shelf experts … but we know enough to discuss certain topics intelligently, and some of us have gifts of communication in terms of writing, speaking, translating complex topics into simpler terms, teaching, illustration, etc.

My challenge is this: Instead of falling into the "make money online" trap, why not try this?

  • Sit down with a blank piece of paper and brainstorm. Take an inventory of your interests and your own personal gifting.
  • Invest some or all of your energy in building valuable resources that will build an audience because you're providing something that they can not get anywhere else.
  • Learn to stay current on industry news in your niche.
  • Interview the thought leaders in the field.
  • Create a resource directory to make searching for related online resources easier.
  • Share your opinions (usually done through articles or blog posts).
  • Write articles and advocate for change where needed.
  • Build an audience.
  • Use your audience's feedback to continuously improve your product and presentation.
  • Become an authority of texts on your chosen topic.
  • And use your position as a thought leader to gain additional info and bring it back to your audience.

Bottom line: ADD VALUE. STRIVE FOR UNIQUENESS.

And when you've done that … you've got something of actual value for yourself as well. People who care when you speak. A great outlet for info that your visitors will link to naturally and share with their friends. And NOW … FINALLY … you've also got yourself an opportunity to make money. And THAT'S when ads, affiliate links and the rest start to make real sense.

Summary: The "make money online" game is not immoral or illegal … but it IS short-sighted. Most people who get involved come to that realization once they've been in it for awhile … but their response it to ratchet their efforts to a fever pitch in hopes of "making a killing" and getting out. Some succeed … but most will not. And, it's not in anyone's best interest to tell you this, because so many have a financial interest in your attention and loyalty. Not me … I'm not selling a book, or a monthly subscription service, or trying to get you to my seminar. I do not have a dog in this fight.

I do, however, have a conscience …. and I think it's only fair that someone share this with you before you've sunk thousands of dollars and thousands of hours into pursuing a strategy that does not bode well for the long term .

Instead, consider doing something of real, long-term value. It's a win-win for you and your web site's visitors!

Newbie Guide to Making Money Online

Nowadays, everyone has been talking on how to make money online. The term of "making money online" has been so familiar to some that they could easily rake in the unclaimed money on the internet at their fingertips and yet for most of the people, they would not know what or how to do it, even They see a goldmine in front of them.

A myth that I've often heard people saying that, "Making money online is easy". Wrong. Making money online was never easy and most of the time it's just as tough as making money offline. Many have started online money making with the wrong approach expecting that they could make some good 'quick buck' online in just days. Unfortunately, this statement is yet to be materialized. Without someone revamps the world of internet marketing that allows you to do so. Until then, this statement remains a myth.

So what do you actually need to make money online?

In general nature, people loves free stuffs, people have been searching online accumulating up to millions of searches per day looking for FREE ways to make money online. It's not that FREE ways are not going to work for you … But whatever comes free has to come with extra SUPER effort and steel-hard persistent. Plus normally, free guidelines do not come with complete guide. You must learn the rest on your own.

Let's face it, online money making is business. So in order for you to start making money online, you have to start treating it like a real business. In any business, there has to be a start-up capital investment depending on your scope of budget. It could be as cheap as $ 50 or it could be as expensive as you possibly imagine. In this business, creating an online business allows you to create your internet empire with small capital. I've got some junkies asking me to test my product reviews and if it really works then he would profit share it with me. This is the type of attitude that would NEVER succeed. Whatever comes free or effortless for you, 9 out of 10 people would not treasure it, not to mention put some good effort in it. So, if I let this guy 'free-trial' my product, do you think he would put real effort in it? I do not think so.

What should you sell?

No one was born with any skills. Put your thinking cap on and start thinking of what can you offer to your customers. It could be your experience in marketing or your experience in real estate, it could worth something and unless you put it out on market, you will not know how much it'll worth. Everyone is an expert in something. Even your little cousin playing that PlayStation 3 or Nintendo Wii day and night could be an expert in gaming. Think of what you can offer that could possibly have a demand. The key is niche. Focus and your niche and do some research on the popularity search and demands. It could give you some potential insight how demanding your service or product is.

What kind of skills do you need?

You will need some very basic HTML skills. You will need to know some internet jargon that you probably have not heard of and you have to get this on the back of your head. Memorize and understand it well and you will have no problems learning any manuals you get your hands on later in your internet business venture.

What kind of tools do you need?

To start your business, you'll need to use all the tools you can use and work it to your advantage. Some are free and some you have to pay for it. There are a lot of free tools like Google Keywords, blogging, article marketing, and others.

As my aid to enthusiast online money makers, I have collected a few eBooks that could potentially help you in your online money making venture. All for FREE.
