Online Business Success Tips You Can Benefit From

Posted on June 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

So many people come online looking to make an income that will replace their current job. Because of this, they see how easy it is to build a website from television ads, and then automatically assume that it’s as easy as pie. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Truth is, if you’re a newbie, marketing online will more than likely be difficult. And you will probably lose a lot of money in the process.

But this doesn’t have to necessarily happen. There are some people who start off online, get their website, and profit immensely. How are they able to do this? Well the number 1 reason is because they hired a marketing coach/consultant that helped them with their business. And then the less obvious reason is because… they’re simply “hard-wired” for business. They are business geniuses.

But it doesn’t matter if you’re a genius or if you hire someone to help you. You can LEARN – and that’s the most important part. Once you’re making $5,000 a month from your internet business, you’re in good standings. It doesn’t matter how your life was 10 years ago or how much money you used to make. Once you get to an income level where you can retire and live life on your terms… you’re amongst the “gods” lol.

I want to give you a few quick tips for having success in your internet business. I mainly preach “internet marketing techniques”, and not necessarily “business success”. But I think this is something you need to hear. Here’s the first thing you need to know about having online business success:

1) Start off with an easy route

Look you don’t have to prove anything to anybody online. You may hear all of these gurus talk about how they make $20,000 a month with their website, and how $2,000 a month is just chump change. This is nonsense. Do yourself a favor. Go for the easy route to online business income.

What do I mean by the easy route? Well I’m talking about selling and listing products on sites like eBay, Amazon, or Half.com. This will be some of the fastest money that you will make online. You can also have this automated for you too, but you will more than likely have to hire a few staff members. Here’s another tip:

2) Don’t re-invent internet marketing

There’s no reason why you should go out and try to become an instant guru. Follow the proven steps that have already been laid out for you. Marketing online is simple. Simply get targeted traffic, turn this traffic into a lot of leads, market to them via email, and then wait for them to buy. It’s just that simple – and it doesn’t matter what kind of products you sell.

Don’t re-invent the wheel. If you want to make money online in the shortest time possible, this is what you will to do. But more than likely, I’m confident that you will think that YOUR way is better than the PROVEN way. Good luck with this ideology. I’m telling you that it doesn’t make sense.

Good luck with having online business success today.

Great Business Success Tip – “Knowledge Is Power” Is A Crock!

Posted on June 9, 2019 in Uncategorized

An interesting question popped into my mind a couple of days ago while I was driving behind a flatbed truck carrying a brand new Jaguar X-Type. I thought; as it rests now, is that really a car?

Until someone sits in the driver’s seat, turns on the ignition, puts it in gear and actually drives it, is it a car or just an assembly of metal, plastic, glass, rubber, and electronics? Think about this.

No, really. What good is the soft craftsmen-stitched leather until someone actually sinks into the seat? And the hand-crafted bird’s-eye maple veneer trim isn’t real wood until one runs his fingers over it to feel the soft grain. What’s the point of a multi-speaker zillion-watt sound system until someone pops a Pavarotti or ZZ Top CD in the player and makes all the windows shake?

What exactly does “Dynamic Stability Control” mean to an inanimate thing strapped down on a flatbed? And what’s the use for those 231 horses under the bonnet (it’s a British car!) if no one’s giving them a chance to haul the chariot like a bat out of hell?

“Ok, what’s your point Daniel?” I hear you.

My point is that maybe all things are really nothing until something is DONE with them by somebody, somehow, somewhere, somewhen. My point is that desires, ambitions, ideas, plans, projects, dreams and goals are NOTHING-until some ACTIONS are taken, until passionate energy is deployed, elbow grease is used, sparks of electricity are produced.

Just like that Jag is nothing more than an expensive heap of assorted parts-really totally useless-until someone turns on the ignition and starts driving it, using it for what it was meant to DO. Then, and only then, in my opinion, it becomes a CAR!

Here’s another thing that needs ACTION to become something: knowledge. There are a few statements I hear repeated over and over that drive me nuts because they are either fallacies or half-truths. Here’s one of them: “Knowledge is Power”

That’s a crock! It’s not true. Here’s the truth: knowledge is power ONLY when it is combined with ACTION!

Another truth is that much of the information you find in the articles here you know already. A lot of it is common knowledge, but the problem is, it’s NOT common practice. The difference between the two is a simple but powerful six-letter word: A C T I O N.

If you’re reading these articles because you want to flourish on the road to business success (or as I like to spell it, BUSINE$$ SUCCE$$) you must keep in mind at all times that truism from business philosopher Jim Rohn; “Success is a DOING!” Success comes from DOING-not merely knowing!

Here’s a simple example (some would say ‘simplistic’…). Just bear with me.

Let’s say your printer is out of red ink-which means you can’t print your letterhead. You KNOW that a new ink cartridge will fix the problem. And you KNOW you have a coupon in your drawer for a 50% discount at ABC Office Supplies. You KNOW where the store is located. You KNOW how to get there. You KNOW how to ask for it and pay for it. But right this minute you still can’t print your letterhead.

That’s because you can’t stick knowledge in your printer and make it work. All that knowledge has very little power to fix anything. You need the actual cartridge.

Ok, let’s say you ACTED and got the cartridge, got home, and put it on the shelf next to the printer. Well, now you KNOW where it is, and you KNOW you’ll be able to continue with your work after you install it, and you KNOW how to install it, but it won’t do you any good to KNOW all that until you actually perform the ACTION of installing it in the printer … you KNOW that, don’t you?

So, the (blatantly obvious) point I want to make here is that none of the valuable knowledge you’ll gather from the articles you read will bring you any personal or professional success unless you put it into PRACTICE. Period!

Greeting Card Business Success Tips #1

Posted on June 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

There’s a common theme among those who begin searching for a way to launch their own home based greeting card business – financial freedom. Your current job might not be cutting it for you with the rising cost of living.

Or, it could be that you have a job that pays an amazing salary, but just doesn’t fulfill you as much as starting a greeting card business would. It is hard to have to report to work at a certain time. Do certain tasks that you might not agree with but have to fulfill since they cut your check.

Having your own greeting card business doesn’t just entail sleeping late and working in your pajamas, as many late night infomercials like you to believe. In fact, you may even find there’s more work involved which is usually the case.

There is a huge difference though when it is your greeting card business and not somebody else’s.

The satisfaction level you achieve by pursuing your own goals will far be more enjoyable than the work you are doing at your current job.

I want to share a quote by James Michener:

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which.

He simply pursues his vision of Excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both”.

There’s a solution available to everyone on the spectrum who want to pursue a life on their own terms – and it’s called the greeting card business.

A greeting card business allows you to work the hours you want to work, whether that’s 11 P.M. to 3 o-clock in the morning or keeping in line with a traditional 8-5 approach. You make the decision. You are in full control.

Your greeting card business can involve as much or as little work as you want it to. You can choose when you want to work. For me, it might be at three o’clock in the morning like the other night because I could not sleep. I knocked out two hours of work and went back to bed. It really is whatever floats your boat.

You’ll be able to choose where you work. There is really no need to rent office space out since this is a home based greeting card business. Because overhead costs are kept low anyway, there’s no reason to add to it when all you need is a computer and an Internet connection, which fits nicely in a spare bedroom or right in the corner of an existing room, like the den!

Running your own greeting card business means being in touch with it on a regular basis, however, there are ways to leverage our time as well.

But the good news is that laptops are portable, and you could spend 365 days a year lounging on the beach since you can run a greeting card business from anywhere in the world, provided you have access to the World Wide Web.

Something that will take getting use to is you won’t have to ask to leave work. You won’t have to alert your clients that you’re going on a month long trip so an island. You just pack up and go, logging in once a day or so to see how things are progressing.

Let’s talk money now. Can sending greeting cards make you money? Enough to give you financial freedom?

Financial freedom has a different meaning for everyone. To some, it could be having enough to finally cover all bills. To others, it may mean making plenty to sock away for retirement and live a luxurious lifestyle.

The benefit of running a home based greeting card business is that you have nobody preventing you from earning as much as you want to. And you won’t have to ask anyone to pay you more. You now decide on when you want a raise.

Plus, with our greeting card business opportunity, you have the benefit of making a residual income from mailing greeting cards.

You work more when you want to earn more or cut your hours when money isn’t too tight. You decide when and if you want to branch out and build your greeting card business empire.

Now you know about the benefits. Let’s talk reality of starting a greeting card business.

You’re not going to wake up and start making $400 a day without doing something to reach that goal. Makes sense right? I will tell you that it is possible to make that much money though if you work.

If you’re looking for a turnkey, get rich quick miracle, this greeting card business opportunity isn’t it. Go buy a lottery ticket and pray that your numbers win big.

The reality is though, if you will stay consistent and build up your greeting card clients, you can do extremely well at this home business. I explain it like building an apartment building. It takes time to build but once you start renting out rooms you come into a flood of money each and every month.
There are a lot of people who don’t take the time to educate themselves about this business, and those are the ones who fail to generate any money and continue spinning their wheels until they finally quit out of frustration.

It is so important to have a coach to be right there and walk you through the process of building a successful greeting card business.

Buyer beware – there are a lot of people out there and you’re going to be very disappointed if you join by the seat of your pants and don’t get with someone that can coach you personally when starting a greeting card business.

Some marketers will tell only half the story – others will blatantly lie (or maybe they just mislead because they don’t know what they’re talking about). But a few are very, very reliable and give you exactly what you need to build a blueprint for your online greeting card business success.

I’m going to show you the route many have used to gain the financial and personal freedom you now desire. You’ll be learning the basics first – like boot camp for greeting card marketers.

All of your fundamental questions will be answered, and some rules will be spelled out before we move on to specific strategies like building a list of prospects, generating traffic to your personal branding site, and developing partnerships with other business owners so you can take in a lot of money in a short period of time.

All of the nitty gritty details of our greeting card business opportunity- the elements most sponsors skip over because they assume you know this stuff already, I’m going to share with you.

You will get a ninety day greeting card business plan to help you become successful.

At the end of this introduction to the greeting card business, you should have all of the fundamental knowledge you need to launch a solid business where you’re at the helm, placing one building block on the next until you reach the level of success you’ve always dreamed about.

This isn’t some industry where you can waft in and out from one day to the next. If you’re serious about this, it can become a multi-million dollar empire – a bona fide business you can pass down to your heirs.

If you have the motivation and mindset to become a greeting card entrepreneur, taking on the responsibilities that entails, along with reaping the rewards, then you might be a perfect fit to don a new career hat as a business owner.

If your needs are more pressing, then it’s advisable that you go out and get a job that has a steady paycheck attached to it. Then, work on building your online greeting card business in your spare time until it reaches a level of success where you can afford to turn in your resignation and work toward increasing your earnings over time.

Having your own online greeting card business isn’t a magic bullet. However, it can provide you with the financial security, the lifestyle, and the prestige you want out of your life. If you’re hesitant or need more information, it only means you’re proceeding with caution, and that’s perfectly normal.
