I thought I would show some of you who may be wondering what many of todays established entrepreneurs do online Currently to build the bulk, really, of their businesses and some philosophy. 1. I constantly go over my goals (I always have specific ones -usually deal with short term goals and not long term) and my dreams. You've got to stay positive and focused with them. You have to have passion to accomplish these dreams. Without any real dreams for what a person wants -when they reach their goals, they will stumble, usually quit or everyone else pass them by, and never make it much further than when they started. 2. I find a strong company w/ track record, great product that consumers will always want and need that has real value, and the price hasn't been marked up for the sole purpose of pushing more $ around to distributors. When I have checked out companies, I have always checked out their leaders, and when I can, met them. 3. I make sure the company has an innovative lead tracking system (sometimes called "backoffice") in place, with a good website page that PULLS interested traffic thru and CONVERTS, like nothing else in the industry. 4. I use the internet to market out, not older fashioned "cold calling", buying lead lists, and don't contact friends and family to get my biz up and running. I leave them out of my business, unless I know they can really use what the Product can give them. I use Google ad words, content(extremely important), You Tube, My Space, and Ezines and Forums as the other part of my system to build. 5. I have always consistently and constantly educated myself on what other successful marketers were doing and LEARNED from them. I always remember my mistakes and learn from them as well. Mistakes can be a good thing, as you will never forget their lesson. I keep up on new trends. I still make a point to learn from people and realize every one knows at least some things that I don't. 6. I keep a positive attitude and vibe, and attract people with the same. I You have to realize that every thought, if allowed to go through your mind, will produce some sort of attitude. That attitude will quickly become habitual, happening over and over a few times until it becomes your belief. People don't understand sometimes just how succeptible our minds are to little thoughts, but they WILL become planted, we will perform based on the beliefs that come, whether positively or negatively from that. At this point it's hard to break. Remember what you are thankful for and Say outloud, "I'm happy!" or "Today will be a great day". 7. I am confidence in myself. I have a belief in what I am doing with my business, that its products will help people live a more fulfilled life! 8. I stay focused, buckle down and get my work done that I have planned for that business day. Find an opportunity you're interested in, good at doing, and plan on sticking with it no matter what happens. What marketing techniques do some of you have?
