If you work from home here are the top five time wasters that hurt home business people.  See if you agree:)

#1 – Your family and friends who show up at your door

Since we work from home, our family and friends often think that we are available 24/7, because we haven’t left to go to work. (There are days I really miss leaving to go to work.:)  It could be very innocent, something like, “Hey! Do you want chicken or beef for dinner tonight?” That is all that it takes to steal your focus and get your mind working in the wrong direction.

#2 – Family & Friends (Online)

Social media is great but when you are trying to work, you want to make sure to turn off your notifications. If you have a Facebook button and it says you have even one notification, you may just be tempted to open it up and “just check for a second.” Checking your social media, following, liking and commenting on people’s photos and posts is not going to help your business.

#3 – Get Your Work Done

If you home or business tasks that you have been putting off, these are going to distract you and waste your valuable brain power. If you have to put down whatever you are doing and get those things done, just do it.

#4 – Unqualified Leads

You may have leads to contact, but if they are not truly interested, you are wasting your time. Make them jump through a few hoops to make sure they are serious about learning more or you are just going to waste your time.

#5 – Canceled or Missed Appointments

This has a bit to do with point number four. If you are trying to work with unqualified leads you may be getting a lot of missed or canceled appointments. If you are booking that time and holding that spot for that lead and they do not show up, either in person or on the phone, is going to put you in a bad mood and you’ll waste your time being upset and trying to figure out something else to fill that time slot. (Maybe try email instead:))

Don’t fall into these traps. You want to make sure that you set working hours so your friends and family know, clear up any tabs or notifications, get any undone tasks out of the way and only work with qualified leads.

I’m sure this has just touched the surface. Write down more time wasting stuff and send it to me.

All The Best

Here’s A Fast Look At A Funded Proposal Plan

It’s always very hard to pull in money for an enterprise and one of the toughest Market Business Global Business Marketing Commerce Conceptissues that faces many businesses is advertising. A large amount of folks think that it’s really setting up an enterprise that is the hardest part, but marketing a business is obviously the most complex and challenging factor. In network marketing these complications can actually be over come by embracing a funded proposal idea.

The whole idea behind selling in a network marketing business is to get as many potential prospects as possible, whom you then convert into leads and then sales. This is a long, slow and complex process and naturally the final result is always moderately unpredictable. What occurs with many businesses is they run into money problems before these promotional efforts can be converted into cash flow.

A number of folks decided to go one step beyond the common training offers in the MLM business and embraced the new idea of a funded proposal. In this concept the network marketer gets together as many potential social marketers as they can and takes them through a training program which helps them set up and become future network promoters under their own down line.

The elemental difference between this and standard techniques is the new marketing expert must pay a small amount of money for training.

The lead recruiter then uses these fees to cover any funding gap there could be between their initial promotional efforts and seeing any returns.

By adding this charge you continue to get leverage by training other team members who then become great product movers without using any of your money, when you’re not especially sure of the end result.

This is win-win situation. This way you don’t have to rely on the money that your Win-win partnership strategy concept. Businessman offer win-win scheme with handshake partnership agreement.team mate might or might not make for you in the future. Instead you need to use the money the new person has paid for training which should satisfy your current needs till you can attract future team members.

Funded proposal systems have proven to be a good a very successful method of funding a business as it grows. But it is vital to make certain you don’t charge excessively for training as this may turn away a number of potential new sign ups and jeopardize your attempts.

A funded proposal does work best in the initial stages, but having good product info and training is vital to finding the proper candidates who will convert your wonderful training into potential leads and then sales, which is the only way to grow.

Many team members will become great marketing specialists with high volume sales which will help build both your business and their business; this is why the funded proposal concept is such a success.

The Pros and Cons of Network Marketing

You’d think that after all the years that multi-level or network marketing has been around (it all started circa 1920s), people would by now be clear on what strategy works. Unfortunately, this is not the case; there is still a lot of uncertainty about MLM. Try asking three of your friends what multi-level marketing is, and odds are at least one of them would say it’s a scam. One might say it’s simply another marketing strategy, and that it’s a good venture to go into.

Just a piece of friendly advice: stick with that friend. Because while there are many misconceptions regarding multi-level marketing and companies like Now Lifestyle.com which use network marketing, what is clear is that it works when done properly. The strategy will not last this long if it cannot earn money. There are, however, some pros and cons in joining a network marketing venture, and here are some of them.

Pros

It makes you work smart, not hard. It’s a common saying nowadays—sadly not a multi level marketingcommon practice, however. With network marketing, you are not just simply selling your product. You can create a downline that will help you earn passively. This means as long as the people you recruit are earning, you can also earn via commission based on the company’s structure.

It trains you for success. What is often overlooked is the fact that network marketing trains you for the skills you need in setting up and maintaining your own business. Too many people focus on lengthening their downlines or recruiting more and more salespeople just to get the incentives. If you look more closely, however, you will see that you are being trained to sell, to motivate yourself, to manage your precious time, and create connections—all of which are crucial to any business.

Although the material benefits are important, even more important is the self-improvement you will be going through; after all, this could even be priceless in the long run.

Cons

It looks a lot like a scam. This is the most common problem with network marketing ventures these days. Since you get to earn more with less effort, it’s a scam, right? Wrong. There are legitimate ways of earning money through MLM, as many who dared have found out. However, it is also true that many scammers pretend to be multi-level marketers, which could make it difficult to find those who operate legitimately, like Now Lifestyle.com.

Too many people focus on the wrong thing. This could be discouraging both for multi-level marketingthose inside and outside the network marketing company. Imagine if you end up in a company that prioritizes recruitment more than selling, when it should be the other way around. This might be contagious; soon, you will be focusing more on trying to evangelize recruits instead of developing your skills and putting it into good use by actually selling.

Remember that all ventures or strategies have their advantages and disadvantages; the key is to be thoroughly informed so that you will have no regrets in the future.

Happy New Year!

An Easy WordPress MLM Solution

One of the first suggestions made to people entering into network marketing is always to build an internet site and by employing Word press, MLM websites or blogs might be made swiftly and easily.

To numerous folks the prospect of building a web site or blog is terrifying. All wordpress just aheadthat technical stuff. But every thing on WordPress is user friendly, you do not must know something about CSS, HTML or any other programming languages. Every little thing is WYSIWYG– what you see is what you get. Should you know just a little about HTML that is even far better.

How to Setup a WordPress MLM Web Site

Let’s take a look on how to build your WordPress MLM internet site.

First you’ll need a domain name. A.com extension is really preferable though it www.?.commight be quite tough to get exactly the name you wish to use. As a word of caution, most multilevel marketing businesses forbid the use of their firm name anyplace inside your domain name. For instance I ‘d be prohibited from using a name like KaratbarsThomasWallace.com. If in any doubt ask.

Expect to spend about $10 to $15 a year to get your. com domain based on which registrar you use as well as the extension you pick. Costs go up and down all of the time.

When you have a your domain name, the next thing on the list is web site hosting account. This can range from as tiny as $5 a month to hundreds of dollars per month according to your demands. In most circumstances it is possible to get precisely what you need to run a full wordpress mlm blog on steroids for less than $10 a month.

You’ve Invested $15 so far.

In most instances you are going to want to buy a UNIX hosting account versus mlm blogWindows hosting. UNIX hosting comes having one-click install program you’ll be able to use to obtain your new wordpress blog installed in much less than five minutes. Most hosting providers will also possess short video tutorial to walk you through this approach.

Go over to the button on the left that says Appearance and start exploring the hundreds of free designs that WordPress.org provides. You could uncover this the most time-consuming a part of developing a WordPress MLM web site.

There are hundreds of free themes and paid themes to select from. So take your time and locate one that best matches what you might be searching for. The moment installed, you’ll be able to then start building out your new wordpress mlm website to function like a true website or like a blog. The option is yours. Usually you’ll use a blog format as this offers you essentially the most freedom to post current info, tips, tricks and inside secrets your internet site guests will be looking for.

Either way, you’ll desire to set up at the very least four “pages” on your new site: digital marketingan “about me” page, privacy, terms plus “contact me: page. It really is essential to add a privacy page and terms of use page because most search engines will rank your web site larger in case you have these pages. The “about me” and “contact us” pages are essential simply because people like to do business with people they have come to know, like and trust. Also, you want to make it simple for people to reach out and connect with by telephone, fax, e-mail, and direct mail.

Now you’ll be able to start adding content. Entering it in to the New page you will see the control panel is equivalent to Microsoft Word. There’s a button for adding video swiftly and graphics and photographs. You can even save your articles in draft form and come back to them later. Should you write a number of posts you can schedule each a single to become published on specified days.

You will soon find out about the hundreds of free plug-ins which might be offered also. These can assist with search engine optimization, and you are able to add social media buttons in the click of a mouse.

It really is time to go setup your first WordPress MLM blog. It is enjoyable, quick and simple to do.

Happy New Year!

Although a select few find true success from spending years in the regular 9 to 5 grind, people are now starting to change with the times. If modern technology can advance into new fields in just a matter of years, then the terms and conditions of success must have advanced as well. This is the reason why MLM companies are gaining substantial ground in providing aspiring people the chance to live the lives they have always wanted.

Also known as multi-level marketing, MLM is a marketing approach that combines the elements of convenience and hard work to create opportunities. Members of an MLM company do not follow a regular shift every workday compared to other organizations. Instead, they earn money when they want to.

Depending on the company joined, members gain a set of a particular item that the company sells. This could range from cosmetics to home care products. For a small investment, an individual can start working and keep a large portion of his sales to himself. There is no need to report to a supervisor who monitors work on a regular basis, but there would be people who serve as helpful guides to help members reach their goals.

This ultimately represents the opportunity to earn residual income in the beginning, which could blossom into massive yet passive income over the years as long as the member keeps on working. These chances to success even increase when members encourage other people they know to join the organization.

This is known as recruitment. By introducing more people into the organization, members can earn a small profit from the sales of the people that they recruit. That means the hard work that they put into convincing other people to be part of the company will pay off as long as the ones they recruit are just as passionate as they are when it comes to making money.

Within a few years, a member can start earning just as much as high-paid individuals passively! Should they have enough recruits who earn their own money, the small cuts that they make from their sales should grow into a formidable source of passive income. That means with the right time and dedication, these people could choose not to work when they do not want to and still earn money while they do the things that they want.

Although this means a lot of interpersonal communication skills and persuasion, the benefits of MLM are all worth the trouble. Instead of toiling away at the regular nine to five wherein every single effort is geared towards a company, a network marketing approach will make sure that each and every effort made is channeled into fueling personal growth that will one day lead to their desired lifestyle.

However, just because the opportunity is there, it is not easy. As mentioned earlier, the art of convincing people to buy the product or join the organization takes some time. Members of MLM companies need to be able to show people how easy it is to duplicate the business and make lots of money.  A better life is quite possible with MLM.  In fact it’s a lot easier than most people believe.

Happy New Year!

Use Your Blog To Help People – Part Three

Since I’m sure you’ve read the first two parts of this series, you already know we’re talking about how your blog should be about free stuff, training, information, you helping the reader in some way, etc, etc, etc,

You also know they’re four factors to a great training blog. The 4 factors to consider for an effective MLM blog site: focus, material, traffic, and updates.

We’ve covered the first two: focus and material so today let’s talk about the last two:  traffic and updates:

GETTING PEOPLE TO YOUR WEBSITE;  (TRAFFIC)
Let me give you some advice.  Which I learned the hard way……..Never advertise for team members. It is a major waste of money, time and energy. Usually it brings you untrained and unqualified prospects, who will take up your time and then quit within a couple of days because they haven’t made a million dollars in that short time. Use your training articles to recruit outstanding team mates.

Place them on web article sites, (Google, 25 top web article sites). The articles will be picked up by the search engines (Google, etc.). When interested people are motivated enough to search the web for MLM training and information, come across your blog and or your articles and click the links to your site, you have a new, quality, lead that really didn’t cost you anything. Take a look at some articles about using web articles to establish traffic…..

UPDATING:
The search engines only pay attention to websites that keep growing with new information. It is really, really important that those search engines (SEO) continue to look at  your MLM blog to keep your latest articles spreading across the web.  To do this, you must keep adding fresh content to your blog at least once or twice a week.   You will get pretty good at this so don’t worry about it! Just go for it!

Finally, the keys to building and maintaining an effective MLM blog are those great free training articles that consistently appear on your blog site and through out the web. If you can be really patient and keep working on your blog you will see your empire grow before your eyes!  YOU CAN DO THIS!

Happy New Year!

Use Your blog to Help People – Part Two

Yesterday, I wrote about using your blog as a recruiting tool by offering free training material for your potential team and existing members.  Your blog is without a doubt, the very best location to start. I listed four factors but only talked about the first one………….focus.
The 4 factors to consider for an effective MLM blog site: focus, material, traffic, and updates.

Let me continue with the second factor: material.

Where the “All About Me” site is all about the MLM program and here it comes……..the offer to join because the owner is making one bzillion dollars and you will too. Your blog site should be loaded with information, tips, strategies, and other approaches for MLM training – all FREE of charge!

Your helpful material should have three varieties – helpful articles, a training program, and links to your offer(s). The best MLM blogs have tons of quality, articles that are both informational and practical,. Learn to write them yourself and use the internet to help you improve your writing skills and find great material to write about.  Cover the topics that are important to new people who are in need of training. Learn the proper use of key words in your articles.

You can also create a simple step-by-step training program to present on your MLM blog if you like. That may need to come later after you gain knowledge and skills that have proven successful for you. You might achieve almost this same effect by organizing your articles grouped by important topics (recruiting, writing, selecting an MLM program, secrets and techniques, and so on). I can also give you a three step training guide.  It’s free and located in my blog.  (Yes, I know, kinda of a shout out for my stuff, but really it came from other people who have been so kind to help me!)

The third type of content will be the links to your business. Since really the purpose of your site is on training, your offer should be made available as your visitors gain confidence in you as an expert teacher and business person.  You could place your links at the end of your articles to pages that talk about your program. This is much less aggressive and still accomplishes the result you’re looking for – new team members. The best part of this is  they are not just new members but they are ‘trained’ new members who can use your blog site to train their new team members if they so choose.  Every MLM experts’ dream is to have a team that has already received great training. Untrained team mates take up huge amounts of a sponsors’ time. Get rid of that problem, by signing those who you have already trained on your free training site.

Tomorrow:  Part Three

Happy New Year!
