Success Tips

home business1. Set aside a specific place exclusively for work- That does not mean you cannot work from anywhere else but this will help keep you focused and away from distractions. It’s your home business and you can actually deduct certain aspects from your taxes if you have a separate area you work out of most of the time. 

 

2. Create long term and short term goals- Long term goals are those goals that help you see where you want to be in the future. What you want to have completed in 1, 5, 10, even 20 years from now. The short term goals are the easier to reach goals that a. keep you on track b. keep you motivated and c. are the stepping stones to the long-term goals. 

 

3. Create a daily work schedule- Creating a schedule will keep you on track with the tasks you know you need to do because you can check or cross off items as you complete them. This keeps you on track and gives you that sense of accomplishment you need to keep yourself going.

 

4. Increase your tech skills- Outsourcing is good when the job takes too much time, but when you can do the simple things yourself, it will actually save you a lot of time, and money, waiting for someone else to do them for you.

 

5. Be Extroverted- If you work remotely, you already know you need to step it up and talk to your potential customers. Even if you are doing it you probably need to increase your efforts in this area.

Success Can Be Yours

6. Commit- If you have a team, participate, if there are meetings, attend them (live or otherwise), if there is training, do it.success tips If you don’t commit, success is unlikely. If there are steps that your team is taking to prepare, plan or build their business and you have not done them yet then  you are not committed. One of the 1st reasons a person will fail at their business is that they are not committed to making it work and most often they don’t even know it. Commit to succeed.

 

7. Know that you will succeed- If you are only hoping, then you need to have more faith in your abilities. Everyone can succeed. If you are not seeing it then you probably need to be doing more. If you are already doing too much and it’s driving you crazy you’re probably a bit off track. You need to be doing more of the right things. Reading motivational books can help.

8. Network- Make friends everywhere you go. The more friends you make, the more you have, the larger your audience. If you promote on social media the people that follow you are the main people that see your posts. When you “friend” someone and they accept, Facebook is set up so that they automatically follow you and your posts. So you have a built in prospect list as you “friend” others.

9. Create a new zero level of activity- This is not mine, but I loved it when I heard it. Sometimes we don’t feel like working. some days you may just want to hide under covers.  On those days use a zero level list. Create a list of things you will do no matter what. Never settle for doing nothing because you just don’t feel like it. It could be a blog, vlog, Facebook ads or a live video. Make a list of 5 things that are easy for you to do but that will help to keep your business and you on track.

Most people would love to help others but they are always chasing their own tail to catch up themselves. You don’t have to be that person if you stay focused and stay active. Keep moving forward.

Starting a Home Based Business

working from homeIf you’re starting a home based business, this is an extremely exciting time for you. You probably have all kinds of ideas about what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it. Once you start to dig it,  it may get a bit scary if it’s an online business.

All the things to think about and accomplish before you even thinking about actually selling something.  Domains, keywords, hosting, products, layouts, getting traffic to your sites. It’s a lot of work but it can be rewarding and if you take it a step at a time it wont be so daunting.

Your going to definitely need a domain name but you want to put a little thought into it. Eventually with a a little work, you want your site to be found on Google, Bing and Yahoo and you want it to be found under keywords that make sense for the products or services you are offering.

You could get to page one on the search engines for a keyword, but it wont do you much good if you’re offering personalized t-shirts and your website shows up under cat treats.

Make sure what you put out there in the way of your blog posts, advertising and any other media you use is geared toward your offerings.

Before you get there though you need a good targeted domain name that makes sense and that it is a keyword that people are actually searching for.  You can use “Google’s Keyword Planner“. You will need a Gmail account, which is easy enough to set up so get one if you don’t have one.

Once you’re in the keyword planner, you can search different keywords related to your business and see how many searches they each get a month and you can get an idea of how much competition your will have. The competition listed is actually the competition for paid ads but you still get an idea of what you are working with for the organic search results as well.

You will also want to check to see what kind of results pull up when you search the keywords yourself on Google especially. If you are offering vitamins and you see a lot of major sites on page one, the chances of beating them out are pretty slim, so go for keywords that work for your products or services but that don’t have as many sites on them that dominate the internet and will be a little easier to rank.
