Bugging Friends and Family to be successful
Have you ever considered or been a part of Direct Sales, Party Plans or MLM? Would you consider this as one of the home business ideas you would consider? I ask because up until now both of these have been known as the easiest and most reasonable way to start a home business.
So what sets those who succeed and soar to the top and those who struggle on the bottom of the ladder? I have personally been in both positions and both require a lot of work and dedication. If there was just one thing to grab onto it would be personal excitement and a Goal target to reach.
With your home business ideas, what is it that you hoped to gain from joining this company or your friend? Did you possibly see yourself earning a great income or more time with family and travel? Did you see this as a fun way to earn a living? Or was it just the glamour that surrounds some home business ideas like Direct Sales or M.L.M. The companies are smart and they will portray this to you.
For you to see the success it helps hugely if you know a lot of people or you are a social butterfly! Absolutely without a doubt in today’s market, this stands out as a key factor. Accompany your social skills, we will call them skills, and your excitement you are going to attract others to you like a magnet!
Every one of us wants to be associated with that magnetic personality. Actually, we all secretly wish we could be more like that. Probable? Yeah, I think so. But is this really for you?
Apples to Oranges and No Pressure
So how much does the actual product have to do with your success? Most home business ideas are not built around the products. Not nearly as much as you think anyway. Why can I say that with confidence? Because think about it. If you were in Amway or Herbalife you had a ton of different products to sell. A ton! It is not the product you are selling but the concept or the way of life that is painted for you in the beginning.
If we are comparing, the Apples are the lifestyle and the recognition and the Oranges are the products. And yes, it does help if you believe and use the products yourself. BUT does that make the product the star of the show? No. ⇓You have to be the star of your own show.⇓
Another very strong point I need to make is what happens to you if the company falls? Exactly. You have to find another company to represent. What do you think this does to your reputation? It can hurt you especially if people do not know what happened.
Today with Social Media Advertising and what you do is seen by so many becomes crucial. Another very good reason that you need to be the star of your own show. In other words, brand
You, product, company. In that specific order.
You really need to find a way to stand out from all the thousands of others doing the same thing as you. This comes into play both on and offline. Is Direct Sales or MLM still one of the easiest home business ideas to start? Not anymore.
If you are planning to do your home business both on and offline ( MORE OFF) then I would say yes. This is the route you should take.
If you can answer YES to the following then it is for you.
- You love meeting and talking to new people
- you are a social butterfly and attract people to you
- being a team leader and helping others is something you can see yourself doing
- planning and attending meetings weekly or monthly
- using your products on a regular basis
How did that go? Did you get more Yeses than No’s?
Give Me 5 minutes of your time and I’ll Give you Free!
Yup here comes that Social Media thing again! When you market strictly online this becomes really important. On the other side of the coin to Direct Sales or MLM is Affiliate Marketing. When I first tried to do a business online I still thought the D.S. or M.L.M was the only way to go. Imagine my surprise when I found out differently.
Time to back up a tiny bit. I could no longer have a business outside of working from home due to a rare health issue. I had my own brick and mortar business that I loved and was so sad to have to let go. I may have been confined to my home vs working outside of the home walls, but I was determined to find something that could work.
It was during this time that I looked at many so-called ‘opportunities’ and training sites only to end up with some pretty big shark bites! I seriously could not figure out how people were doing this. I would see these blogs people were writing, and products they were talking about. How I wondered, do you do this?
It turns out it was Affiliate Marketing and could be set up with very little money if any. Eventually, you will need some $$ but in the very beginning, you can get away with none. Funny thing is I still didn’t know what it was called. I just knew I wanted to do something like that. I did a search, perhaps like you did, and what I found turned into my final search.
Passive Marketing! One of the home business ideas loved
I loved the sound of that! No ‘recruiting’, no meetings to attend and no products I was forced to buy every month just so I could get paid. Please don’t misunderstand. I loved MLM and what it was able to offer so many. I just didn’t love how every month I was paying out of pocket.
At some point you have to say, STOP. I am not making any money. I am just spending it. And that does not mean you are a quitter! It just means you took a new direction.
Okay, back to the Passive! What exactly is Affiliate Marketing? It is still you being the star minus the purchase of products. As an affiliate marketer, you are the middleman or women.
Affiliate Marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals. Just as simple as that.
Will you need some help learning how to do this? For some, I do think, Yes. If you are not familiar with WordPress or setting up your own site or blog it is suggested, strongly suggested I might add, to get help with this.
No, you will not moonlight your way to millions as so many want you to believe. It is time to put your big girl/boy panties on. Once you know you are being fooled you have no more excuses. I can help if you are in this category.
How would you like to learn, step by step, taken by the hand and guided, for as little as $0 to $1.60 a day? That is less, far less than a cup of coffee!! If you can answer NO to any of the following then this is for you:
- You know how to set up a website or WordPress theme
- You know how to become an Amazon Affiliate
- You know how to use Social Media to your advantage
- you know what a widget or plugin is
- You know how to get noticed and become the expert
How many No’s did we get? When I first started this journey I had all No’s and there is more that I didn’t know but soon found out I needed to learn it. You can’t just put up a website with some pictures and expect to have any success. It doesn’t work that way.
You can do this on your own and spend a lot of money and lost time and become very frustrated or you can let me help you. Wouldn’t it be nice to find that one place that is honest and straight up about this online marketing business? I can’t guarantee you will be making any money at first but what I can guarantee is the best training platform online today.
Hop in. I want to show you what you can do with Affiliate Marketing compared to Direct Sales or MLM. You will be shown how to set up your own website or Blog. You will be taught how to use WordPress so it becomes easy to navigate. You will be guided to the best Affiliate platforms to find products you would like to sell.
