Are You Serious Enough?

Banner13When it comes to being involved in a business, it doesn’t take much to see if one is or isn’t serious about it. I’m sure most of us have joined a site  for one reason or another, right? Often, just because one colleague asks one if you join mine I will join yours?  Most of us have done that to absolutely not accomplish anything whatsoever, unless its merely a referral contest going on, to collect emails.

Seriously though, what is our goal in joining a business, is it to just check it out to see what its about, or to get a person out of hair to stop asking. I understand for sure that we often do to check it out.But what are we seeking in a business? To be quite honest, if you are looking for a fast way to earn money without any participation , you better look for the lottery or someone leaving you money in a will.   Lets take a moment and read this email I found.

hey folk here is a nice email mess , to use for csa & your team members ..
Forget about the promises of getting rich quick with little or no effort. If you’ve been looking online for a while now, I’m sure you’ve already learned that Google is not going to pay you $389 a day to work from home because you have basic typing skills; there is no secret grant program you can sign up to where the government is just going to hand you money for nothing; there’s no bank in London that has $4 million waiting in a secret account for you; there’s no foreclosed house you can buy for $1 and there are no fully automated get rich quick schemes where you enter your credit card and instantly start making money.

If it was that easy everyone would be doing it, right? The truth is, you have to work to make money in any business. What you can count on here though, is that with the right attitude and the desire to succeed, there is a lot of money that can be made, without having to be a slave to a job – if you’re willing to learn.

We used the word SIMPLE above – and it is! It’s not easy though – being successful requires dedication and commitment. So, do you have what it takes?

This email cuts right thru the chase, the word is Serious enough to work a business.  A true solid business is one that doesn’t promise you millions overnight and one that says you can earn without any effort. Now, let me say this there are honest places you can invest money, not these where you put money in and earn tremendously, because once the cashflow stops , so does your money that you invested and its gone. True investment firms, there are high risk low risk.  involve  which i am speaking about the stock market.

Word of mouth is seeking businesses that has been around and has a great track record. I will do recommend the one I am with, its fun and exciting and you learn a lot, and yes you do have to work at it. If you are serious and want a great business to be involved in, I suggest you check it out.  Click here

One Great Testimony

One wonderful thing I always like to hear is wonderful testimonies that comes in to help encourage you. One such testimony that really made my day was from an old friend and past contact I had and now I have happen to find with SFI. He shared with me one of the most moving testimonies that really made my day.

Several years ago, he was going thru some testing times of his life. One of poverty and homelessness. We have lost contact at that time and had no idea what had come of him. To my utter amazement, he had brought himself out of that predicament and is now doing well earning his masters degree and is a member of SFI for several years. He has given me to freedom to share his story.

First thing that was spoken was this: SFI earned me enough to feed and keep me alive in 2010, that’s a big story of my life. He says this for all those that feel like giving up, when u give up early, u don’t see the beauty of SFI. When you build it early you enjoy its beauty for life. Just imagine something that has paid me since 2010, to date every month whether I am online or not. Which other is there?and FREE?

He told me to share of a man I have known that had limited access to the internet,Who has earned money from SFI, because he understood its basics, to sponsor people, since there’s nothing better he could do. Soon enough, after guiding the affiliates on how SFI works, the team grew and money started coming in. He also won several auctions starting from the FREE Tcredits, and won wave $250 twice in the same month. SFI is big but one can search all around it to find the gold he said, and once everything is set earning is unstoppable!
Someday, he said, I will earn much more from SFI, because the evolution is coming up nice, and I am already in the system! So, I give up never! I hang in there, check my to do list, invite more affiliates whenever I get online and check the store for any thing I may find for myself

MY SFI STORY: By Stuart

Years ago,I tried a lot of online businesses, including joining SFI along the way and not understanding it and keeping on my move, to get a business that will earn me money so fast. In all that, I lost my money to the so called businesses, wasted my money and resources and above all my precious time. Last year in March (2011), I felt tired, and I prayed to God, for a solution to my long lasting lack of money problems, and soon I was redirected back to SFI.
This time I decided to learn about how SFI works. I read the LAUNCHPAD, ‘to do list’ and almost all pages of SFI.
I learnt, understood and finally I knew this would work for me, because I was ready to be REAL. Do you know what? It worked! For the first time I got a commission, and just in one month! I had to review my SFI BASICS and implement them, I invited more friends and family, and since them, I have a steady income.
By the end of the year, I married a beautiful wife and I was sure I am ready to keep her smiling, and I spend a lot of time with her because SFI is now giving me the money I need, better than a job.

The most essential factor is persistence, – the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come. ”

Marketing with Personality

Personality Marketing: What is it? Actually the name speaks for itself. Its using a very special part of yourself to reach people. Your smile, compassion, friendliness are all wonderful qualities needed to establish customers and prospects.

How many times have you been in a doctors office, or went to a store only to be confronted by rude or  unfriendly individuals waiting on you? I don’t know about you but I have often told myself if that was my employee, that person would be gone in a moment. From my point of view, to hire unfriendly personnel to deal with customers is asking for lost business.   I regard  the personality of a person in customer service very highly in dealing with the public. Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand if a person is having a bad day. But there is a big different between having a bad day, than just totally not being friendly to people. Take for instance individual in a doctors office.  A person comes in for an appointment. The person is already nervous from having to see the doctor. How terrible it is to confront a rude, unfriendly face from a worker checking you in.  Same thing applies to servers at restaurants and anywhere there is customer service. Seems to me, the employers need to do a review on hiring  employees.

These attitudes to me are a big minus when it comes to customer service. In Personality Marketing, I have been in contact with many different types of people online. I am sure you as well have encounter many types along the way. One big turn off in marketing is  meeting a person for the first time, perhaps a new contact on skype. You accept the contact and maybe there is a hi or hello and the very next thing you are hit with is  a url to join up with this and that. Your first impulse is to not even acknowledge it or ignore it completely. Or, maybe your thoughts is, I will help out and just maybe since he or she did that, I will get them to check mine out. Believe it or not, most likely they will say they are not interested or they already joined it, or some excuse.

80% of the time. these types of personality are only after a signup with no interest of your programs. Another type of personality you may encounter is the aggressive type of personality. This particular personality is seen often when a contact puts a demand on you to join this or that. When a no is giving, they often resort to more aggressive means in determining to get a signup. In marketing these means are not acceptable to me.

One particular type of personality that is often see about is one that goes about bashing businesses, rather good or bad, if they have an issue they love to broadcast it wide and broad. Although, I understand when one is a scam that proper information is issued about it. This isn’t what I am speaking about. It’s where a person is upset with an issue, instead of  handling it within a business privately, they go about all over speaking badly about a business.

Then we have those that loves to get in fights on the internet as well as speak nasty things against one another. When others see such actions as above, what kind of thoughts do you think they will be having? Most likely the ones that I know I will not associate with that type of person.  We need to keep our reputation as sound as possible. We definitely do not want to be known as a troublemaker, as such as above. We need to  let our personalities shine representing who we are.

Let us  meet people being friendly, asking our contacts about their lives not about what we are. We need to show we are interested about them, who they are, what they are seeking. When we show interest in others, they will begin to trust us and we will have a new friend.

Building Influence With Free Membership Sites Part 2

Building Influence With Free Membership Sites Part 2

What You Need Before Getting Started

Building a free membership website is just about as easy as falling off a log…well, maybe not quite that easy…but it IS easy. There are so many associated advantages to having a free membership site that the little bit of trouble and expense will be well worth the time and effort that are required.

To get started on building your free membership website you are going to need some tools. The first thing that you will need to secure is a web hosting service. There are actually two web hosting services that are excellent, reasonably priced and effective. You will have choices to make when you visit either of these two websites.

Web Hosting:

Host Gator http://www.hostgator.com/

You will see that there are several choices of servers ranging in price from a measly $6.95 per month to a whopping $174.95 per month. The service that will most likely serve your needs for a very long time can be found under the fist choice of ‘Personal Hosting’. When you click on the ‘learn more’ link, you will see that there are several choices beginning with a ‘hatchling’ account and all the way up to a Semi-dedicated account. The one that will most likely serve your needs is the ‘Swamp’ account. It costs only $14.95 per month and will serve your needs for a very long time.

Net Host

http://www.nethost.ws/

When you get to that site, click on the middle button that says ‘$14.95 more info’. You will see that you are being offered 500MB of disc space and a site builder for $14.95. Larger amounts of disc space are available for more money each month. I’d start with the $14.95 and then add additional disc space as needed. There is a Site Studio offered with all of the plans but it isn’t free with any of them.

Domain Names:

Now you must have a domain name. Domain names are very specific and completely unique. When you type in a domain name, your computer takes you to that website and ONLY to that website. To start with you should think up several possibilities for your domain name. Using your own name in the domain name will make it easier to find one that hasn’t already been taken. You aren’t very likely to find the simplest ones to be available so you are going to have to get a bit creative. There are others, of course, but here are two places that you can register your domain name.

Name Cheap http://www.namecheap.com/

Here you will see that it will cost you only $8.88 to register your domain name. There will be many offers for additional names and products. What you really need here is a domain name for no less than two years. You do not need to pay for anything additional that is offered.

GoDaddy http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/default.asp

Here you will see that you can register your domain name for $8.95 per year. Again…you will be offered many extras but all you really need is to register your domain name for two years. The reason you need to register it for two years is that search engines really don’t like domains that are only registered for one year. Spammers tend to only register for one year at a time because they won’t be at the same location for anywhere near that long.

Membership Software:

If you are going to have a membership website, then you must have the software that will accomplish that. There are basically three sites that you should visit and look over the product offered on each site.

The first site is aMember at http://www.amember.com/. The package is $139.95.

The second site is Launch Formula Marketing at http://www.launchformulamarketing.com/. There is no price available without giving primary email address so check this one out for yourself.

The third site is Butterfly Marketing at http://www.butterflymarketing.com/. This software sells for $1497.00 plus shipping and handling.

Theme and Content:

As with every website, there must be a theme as well as content. There is a saying among Internet marketers that, “Content is King” and that’s pretty accurate. The only way that you can keep members visiting even a free membership site is to keep it constantly updated and loaded with fresh and relevant content that pertains to the theme of your site.

There are many ways to get good content. There are article banks where you can download free articles for reprint. There are sites where you can get PLR material that will provide good website content. You can also hire ghostwriters to write fresh content.

One such ghost writing site Writing and Transcription Service is at:

The Online Lifesaver www.theonlinelifesaver.com

Blogs or Forums:

Most hosting services (both of the ones mentioned above) have included a utility called Fantastico. This feature allows you to set up a blog or forum on your membership site. In addition you can install such things as customer support, content management systems, polls and a host of other things. You really need to poke around in your hosting service to see what all is available.

Help Desk:

Installing a help desk is entirely optional. It is, by no means, a required feature for a free membership site. The software can be found at the HelpDesk website at http://www.perldesk.com/. The cost of the HelpDesk software starts at $99.95. Although this is not required the HelpDesk software can be very beneficial. It will allow you to you to organize your companies customer relations to a database backed browser based help desk.

This can save you a whole ton of headaches particularly if you have multiple businesses.

Okay, that’s about it. You need a hosting service, a domain name registered, membership software, a theme and website content, a blog or forum and maybe a Helpdesk. This will be enough to get your free membership website off of the launch pad.

Building Influence With Free Membership Sites Part 1

Why Build Free Membership Sites?
What’s not to like about a free membership site?

Internet marketers, email marketers, and Internet entrepreneurs of all stripes are quickly finding the many, many advantages to opening a free membership site for their customers and potential customers. Even savvy and well-established Internet marketers who have paid membership sites are jumping on the free membership site bandwagon because they can see the obvious advantages.

Paid membership sites are most usually limited to a specific number of members. This means that marketing is limited to that specific number.

Limiting marketing possibilities is never a positive thing no mater what products or services are being promoted. Of course, there are obvious reasons for limiting paid membership site memberships but the fact remains that a free membership site can be operated right along side a paid membership site and there is never any reason at all to limit the memberships available to a free site.

Three to six months is about the duration of a paid membership to most membership sites according to many paid membership site owners. Three to six months isn’t very long in terms of Internet marketing. Once a paid member drops his membership, the site owner must then replace him and that can get expensive.

On the other hand, membership cancellations at free membership sites are easily and cheaply replaced. Marketing to the members of a free membership website is absolutely unlimited. You can continue to market to free membership site members for as long as you want to. Free membership sites are easy to run and they cost almost nothing and yet the owner is supplied with an almost unlimited number of customers and potential customers to market all kinds of products and services to.

Let’s face it: Every Internet marketer must now have an opt-in mailing list in order to send bulk marketing emails. That’s the law that went into effect with the passage and implementation of the CAN SPAM act. There is nothing anybody can do about it. If you send bulk marketing emails without the express consent of the recipients, you are subject to very heavy fines and the very real possibility of having your Internet business closed down altogether.

So… why limit your mailing list to just a paid membership site? Why not build a free membership site and gain an unlimited number of names and email addresses to which you have the legal right to send marketing emails? There simply is not satisfactory reason for NOT having a free membership site…at least not one that I can see.

Free membership sites are easy to set up and easy to operate. Of course, there must be fresh and timely content but that’s a lot easier (not to mention cheaper) than constantly having to run PPC campaigns or paying for advertising in related E-zines to attract members to your opt-in list and thus gain their permission to market products and services to them.

We all know that visibility on the Internet is one of the basic keys to successful marketing. Getting visibility is one of the hardest tasks that most Internet marketers face from the inception of a marketing idea. All Internet marketers well understand the value of writing and marketing articles and E-Books, posting to blogs and forums that belong to others and doing PPC campaigns, as well as, exchanging links and paying for advertising in E-zines and newsletters.

With a free membership website, you can almost guarantee yourself, not only a long list of customers and potential customers but that others will be willing to pay YOU for advertisements on your free membership sites and advertisements in the newsletters that you send to your very impressively long list.

The shoe will be on the other foot, so to speak. Other marketers will be begging you to download and post articles and E-Books which they have written trying to gain that coveted Internet visibility. Influence is another sought after and enviable facet of Internet marketing. When an Internet marketer gains influence over even a small group of consumers, they have a great deal influence among other Internet marketers, as well. When that pool of consumers is really large, a marketers influence with other marketers increases in direct proportion to the number of consumers that he has influence over.

With a free membership site, an Internet marketer gains access to an unlimited number of potential customers in his niche marketing area. By keeping his content fresh and timely he will gain influence over the purchases that the members of his free membership make and even when they make purchases and from whom. This is commonly known as ‘clout’. Paid membership sites usually have limited memberships. If the membership isn’t limited by the marketer, it is limited by the number of people who are willing to pay an annual membership fee… and that number for any niche market IS a limited number.

On the other hand, a free membership site that allows interaction between the owner, as well as, with other members is affordable by everybody who might even be remotely interested in the products and services that the enterprising Internet marketer will be offering to his list.

The cost to members is a big fat zero and it just can’t get any cheaper than then. Those who might well want to join a paid membership site but either don’t think they can afford it or simply don’t want to spring for the membership fees will certainly be able to join a free membership site. Many Internet marketers who have paid membership sites also have free membership sites. Often those free sites are made up on customers or potential customers who will eventually become members of the paid membership site so it becomes a win/win situation for all concerned.

The bottom line here is that there is simply no reason NOT to build a free membership website no matter what niche market you are in. You will have the potential of building an extensive opt-in list and there simply is no other way that is as easy or as cost effective out there!

What is Article Marketing?

What is Article Marketing?

One way of promoting your website and product can be achieved for FREE. As an additional bonus, this “free” method can boost your sites and sales, doubling and even tripling your income.

Articles. One of the easiest ways to promote your website in order to generate traffic and increase your earnings.

How does this work?

Write articles relating to your website and submit them to “free content” submission sites. Easy to do, takes little time and can increase your website traffic, sales and of course, your income.

How can article writing boost traffic and income?

The article on the free content site contains a link to your own website. Readers, after reading your articles, may choose to click on the link and pay you an unexpected visit. Having them on the free content sites is also making these articles available to other webmasters who may wish to publish that article on their site.

If they do, your article will include a link back to your site. And anyone who reads the article on that site can still click on the link to visit your site.

As the list of your published articles grow larger, and more and more of them are appearing on different websites, the total number of links to your site increases also. Major search engines are placing a lot of significance on incoming links to websites so they can determine the importance of a certain site.

The more incoming links the website has, the more importance search engines attaches to it. This will then increase your website’s placement in the search results.

If you site is into promoting a product or service, the links that your articles have achieved will mean more potential customers for you. Even if visitors only browse through, you never know if they might be in need of what you are offering in the future.

There are also those who already have specific things they need on their mind but cannot decide yet between the many choices online. Chances are, they may stumble upon one of your articles, gets interested by the contents you wrote, go to your site and became enticed by your promotions.

See how easy that is?

Search engines do not just index the websites, they also index published articles. They also index any article that is written about your own website’s topic. So once someone searches for that same topic, the list of results will have your site or may even show the articles that you have written.

And to think, no effort on your part was used to bring them to your site. Just your published articles and the search engines.

It is no wonder why many webmasters are suddenly reviving their old writing styles and taking time to write more articles about their site than doing other means of promotion.

Getting their site known is easier if they have articles increasing their links and traffic and making it accessible for visitors searching the Internet. Since many people are now taking their buying needs online, having your site on the search engines through your articles is one way of letting them know about you and your business.

The good thing with articles is that you can write about things that people would want to know about. This can be achieved in the lightest mood but professional manner, with a little not-so-obvious sales pitch added.

If you think about it, only a few minutes of your time is spent on writing one article and submitting to free content site. In the shortest span of time also, those are distributed to more sites than you can think of. Even before you know what is happening, you are getting more visitors than you previously had.

If you think you are wasting your time writing these articles, fast forward to the time when you will see them printed and wide-spread on the Internet. Not to mention the sudden attention and interest that people are giving your website and your products or services.

Try writing some articles and you will be assured of the sudden surge in site traffic, link popularity and interest. Before you know it, you will be doubling and even tripling your earnings.

Nothing like getting benefits for something you got for free!
