It Makes Sense to Use the Products You Sell Online

Aside from the fact that as a reseller (affiliate) you may be able to get a ‘discount’ or wholesale rate, why would you support your competition? For the most part you should think in terms that indicate you believe your product to be superior and that is why you chose to use it. That you may make a few extra dollars that way is all good.

to buy is to sell

In addition to possible extra revenue and savings in your business operating budget, using the product yourself will give you the ability to really describe the functionality in your ads. It is so much more convincing to read something written by someone who has actually used the product than just a bland review that may say if you liked it.

You wonder if they even know what the product does or if they were in some way paid to give a favorable rating especially in a ‘check box’ format where you are not allo

Home Biz Entrepreneurs – You Gotta Run

If you are in business at home, whether or not you also have a day job and the usual personal and family obligations, you have to learn how to say that you gotta run! That is because you likely do not have a lot of time on your hands to spare to small talk and chattering.

keep in touch!

Be polite to everyone of course, and even spend some time ‘networking’ when it is a peer or prospective customer you are communicating with. Make arrangements to meet again or whatever is applicable. Make a note to follow-up because there is nothing more shallow than saying you will do something that you don’t do, particularly if someone might be waiting for you to do what you promised.

A built-in escape hatch would be to say something to the effect that if they don’t hear from you by a certain time, to feel free to contact you instead. This really has a nice touch in mor

Developing a Real Home Business – What is Holding You Back?

You may be a creative type with a million ideas all the time. However they rarely get past the idea stage. It could be ‘information overload’ or too much information that keeps you from selecting one idea and running with it. This may be just as bad as not having any ideas or being logical.

get started already

One way to get out of that maze may be to make a list of the ideas that come to mind. Don’t get hung up on the list – just do a ‘brainstorming’ type of list where you write down the ideas as they come. This list is likely very unrefined and should have some space after each idea where you can go back and define what you mean.

Then at a later time you can take ones that you have been able to define which would indicate you have given them some thought. Decide from that ‘top’ list which ideas would be most feasible. Break everything down as far as

HomeBiz Issues: Why Not Get Up an Hour Earlier?

You would be surprised to learn as groggy as it may feel, that you are your most creative when you first wake up. Maybe it is just because of maximum velocity; or maybe stressful situations have not arisen yet so you are better able to focus on what needs to be done.

don't waste time or money!

Whatever you use that extra hour for – to accomplish anything you know you need to do today – get it over with. Getting up earlier will also cause you to be tired earlier and you may start to fall asleep sooner. Many people have trouble sleeping and the sooner you start to try to fall asleep the better. It doesn’t take that much effort when you are really tired.

Sometimes you need to actually train yourself to fall asleep – you can practice with naps which are really good for you, especially if you do not sleep well during the night. If you can’t fall asleep k

Building a New Business – Don’t Ever Lose Your Faith

It is important that you have faith and you keep it in tact no matter what happens. Having faith, like praying or wishing for something, does not guarantee anything. You may or may not receive what you need and want. Yet it shouldn’t have any effect on your level of faith. If you keep it in general, just having a positive mindset about everything, then you can’t lose.

Keep the Faith!,

It is a lot like the opposite meaning of the expression that ‘you can’t fail unless you quit’. Think about it. As long as you are still trying, nobody can say you quit. You don’t need to feel that you failed. Remember we are all individuals and different. We each learn in our own way and take as much time as we need.

The harder you try the more momentum you have, because while you are trying you are actually learning and practicing and someday you will actually achieve your goal

Add Value to Your Existing Products

One way to garner some extra attention to your portfolio of services and products that you include for your customers is to add extra functions from time to time. Spruce them up so as to create a little excitement and give your members something new to promote to their downlines.

add value

If nothing creative comes to mind when you are determining what little extras you might include, you can also look at volume or cost as a way to enhance the value. For example if their membership includes 5 ads a month, or they are paying fees to send out 5 ads a month, create a ‘special’ where they get it cheaper or they get a few free ads included.

There are many little widgets and gadgets that really wouldn’t cost much but which would go a long way to make your offerings more exciting. Lots of times the problem is people are ‘asleep at the wheel’. They recrui

The Importance of Blogging for an Online Home Business

If you have a blog associated with your home business you should be using it frequently – daily if possible or close as you can get. If you do not have a blog associated with your business, get one today.

write on

It is a powerful, FREE way to get free traffic that may become sales or leads (your list). If you can’t even do this much to promote your business, with all due respect, you may not be serious or committed enough to ever succeed with your online business.

Maybe this is the issue and the juncture where you should make a decision. You want a business, or not really that much. Hopefully it won’t be the case here, but maybe you should just quit while you are ahead if it doesn’t mean enough even to do something for free to promote your business.’ It will still require time and effort to compose blogs unless you can pay a ‘ghostwriter’ or

How to Write an Article for Your Home Business Blog

Believe it or not even if you don’t think you have any writing skills – can you hold a conversation? Yes you mostly can. Writing is just like having a one-way conversation. Nobody there to answer but you can. It is pretty sure you can write an email as well. So you take these avenues and consider that YOU CAN write.


Say it Right

Just think of any issue you may have had, positive or negative with your business. Use that as an idea to start and then just keep the conversation going. What happened? Did it work well? What didn’t work about it? What did you learn from it? You may want to provide the solution you found either way.

Another excellent thing to remember is ‘writer’s block’ is usually idea block – you just need to find an idea and write something. You will keep flowing the longer you add information. Although whatever is on your mind and

You’ve Got to Do What You’ve Got to Do

It’s rather a bummer when you realize you really don’t have collaborators or ‘partners’ as much as you thought you did for your business. You realize this when it becomes clear that they are almost never there for you and you really don’t have any support – even when you are trying to support them. You begin to feel like an old shoe.


Keep it Real

The thing is that you still have to take care of your business whether or not there is support. That is if you care about it. I can imagine that realizing nobody is there for you really takes some of the joy out of having a business where you thought you had a partner. So really don’t let it stop you from your progress when this person fails you repeatedly.

You do have to wonder – if this person is spoiled, entitled, or just plain selfish? Maybe he is telling you he is not interested in the business anymore.
