Now that you see what you will need to do each day in order to achieve your big goal, ask yourself if each day’s task is reasonable. Be truthful. If you know you can do what is required each day, then you have your plan. If it will be very difficult to meet each day’s requirement, then extend your timeline until you have something you know you can do every day. This way, you are setting yourself up for sure success!
This is a result of the problem of the later syndrome. (Never do today what you can put off for tomorrow. Better yet, never put off ’til tomorrow what you can avoid altogether! ) The later syndrome is a very big hindrance to many home businesses. Does your home business also suffer from this syndrome? What is the later syndrome anyway? This is where a home business owner puts off what he/she should have done today, for a later time. Simply put, the later syndrome is procrastination. Other people prefer to call it the tomorrow syndrome.
Another effective way of building your list is from the traffic that visits your website. This step, which is probably the most effective,does require you to have a website in order to implement an opt-in list form. Of course if your affiliate program does offer a list management service then you can send traffic to the affiliate URL, but I don’t recommend it as you will usually not be able to email the entire list with special offers.
Like any marketing project though you need to do your research. You need to get some books and read up on it. Then you should go out and look in marketing forums, web sites, and blogs to see what others have to say. Just take everything you see outside of books written by professionals with a grain of salt unless it is coming from a reputable name.
Now, suggestion is just as effective when used for a lawful and honorable purpose as for an unlawful and dishonorable one. One sales man succeeds where others fail, largely because of his greater suggestive power. He draws such a vivid description of the product he is selling, makes it seem so very desirable, that his prospect feels he must give him an order. The salesman knows he is selling a good thing that it is to his customer’s advantage to buy. The transaction is therefore of mutual benefit to both parties, the buyer as well as the seller. Suggestion has been defined as “whatever creates or inspires thought.” As a science, suggestion “shows us how to start and steer thought.” The five senses are the channels which bring us impressions from without. “An act of the will or some association of ideas” brings impressions from within; this latter is auto-suggestion.
Use your products regularly. This is Number 1 for a reason, this is the most ignored part of ANY network marketing business. How do you expect your business to succeed if you will not even use your own products? It does seem silly to even have to bring this up, but there are many who are not using their own products, and wonder why they are not making any money. Make a commitment to use your products for a year, and see where your business goes.
The greatest service a teacher can render a student is to train him to depend upon himself, to trust to his own powers. If the youth does not practice self-reliance, he will be a weakling, a failure. One of the greatest delusions that a human being could ever have is that he is permanently benefited by continued assistance from others. Power is the goal of every worthy ambition, and only weakness comes from imitation or dependence on others. Power is self-developed, self-generated. We cannot increase the strength of our muscles by sitting in a gymnasium and letting another exercise for us. Nothing else so destroys the power to stand alone as the habit of leaning upon others. If you lean, you will never be strong or original.
THERE is nothing more important to a human being than to be able not only to earn his living, but also to know how to use his money to the best advantage, for on this depends his power to make himself independent and consequently to do his best work in the life. The money sense, if not inherited, should be cultivated. Every child should be taught how to finance himself; he should know how to handle money, how to save money, how to spend it wisely for personal development and for life enrichment.
Today there are many men and women attracted by the big profits in salesmanship, who would like to become salesmen and saleswomen, but they feel they have not this natural aptitude to insure permanent success. It is true that, just as certain men and women are born with natural gifts for music and for art, so certain men and women have, in a high degree, the natural qualities which enable them to succeed in selling either their brain power or merchandise.
