There is NO Plan B

There is No Plan B

I was recently talking to a friend about people having a Plan B.  You are always hearing about having your Plan B.  In fact I think every Network Marketing company talks about having a Plan B.

He pointed out something to me

There is NO Plan B

There is no Plan B if you expect to reach your potential and become an elite player, living an extraordinary life. Plan B is a Backup Plan putting you in perpetual Backup Mode.
You won’t push through the obstacles and challenges when you know you have a Backup Plan. You will never be “All In”, fully committed to The Plan. To fly at your potential altitude, you must scrap all references to Plan B.
Jim Gardner

This really bought something home to me, if you truly want to succeed you need to have your goal in mind and go for it.

Now your goal doesn’t have to be restricted to just one thing.  Your goals and hence your Plan is a mixture of personal and professional goals.

If you have a Plan B or what you are calling a Plan B, see how you can weave that Plan B into your Plan A and create your Master Plan.

Malcolm Gladwell said you need to spend 10,000 hours studying your trade to become an expert,  regardless of your chosen profession.  In his book he gives plenty of examples.  The point being if you are working on something as a “Plan B” and are focusing very little energy on it you will never become an expert.

Work from home opportunities are always sold as “Plan B” when really they are just another part of your Master Plan.  You can learn new skills, earn while you learn and as you become successful you can adapt your Master Plan and maybe your Work from Home Opportunity becomes your primary income.

The reason it is a Plan B is it is another source of income, ideally you don’t want to be dependent on one source of income, if that goes away you have a problem.  Having multiple sources of income is always a good idea, just like when you invest your money you spread it across different investments to reduce the risk of a problem if one investment goes bad.

If you are looking for a way to achieve Multiple Streams of Income as part of your Master Plan you should check out Networking Superstars.

How ever your Master Plan unfolds remember to make sure it is balanced between your work and personal life.  Make sure you spend enough time with the others who are important in your life, your spouse, the kids, the extended family or the dog as examples.

Building Your Home Based Business on a Budget

Everyone starts from the Bottom with Their Business

Everyone when they start their business starts at the bottom, Michael Dell, the owner of Dell computers washed dishes and Sandra Bullock, the actress started as a bartender.

So just remember that as you start your journey on your home based business you are starting like most people at the bottom.  You will hear time and time again the money is in the list.  It is this list you need to build.

 I have No Money to Start A Business

businessNot having money is not a deal breaker it just requires a different approach to your business.  Your cash is a different equity namely your own creativity.  With sites like You Tube, Facebook and Twitter you have something that allows you to generate free traffic like you never had before.  As Mike Dillard said:

The amount of money you make and the people you serve is a direct reflection on your value to the world

This is a good statement to remember if you are going to be truly successful in network marketing. There are some key areas you will need to invest some money in to create your presence on the internet.  Most of these can be built for a very low cost.  These few areas discussed below give you the basics for starting your business online.

A Web Site

First you will need a Web SIte to host your  blog and your capture pages.  You will use your capture pages to capture people’s names and emails for your Business Opportunities. This is how you are going to create your list, when you have 20 plus leads a day your business will transform.  This is the magic number than equates to 2-3 people joining your business each week.

There are many tools and programs out there that allow you to build capture pages for your business.  Please contact me to learn more about these tools and programs that can help you build capture pages and web sites.  The best way is to go to my contact page and fill in the form and put web site in the details box.

To get a Web site you can get a domain with service like Go Daddy.  You can search for domains and register one for about $10. Use a hosting service such as Go Daddy, Hosting Gator etc.  You can even find Free Website Builder services and eventually you can learn how to do Website Optimization, but don’t worry about that to start with.

An Auto-responder

You need an auto-responder as a way of capture those email addresses which is your list!  The auto-responder can be used to send E-mails and  the auto-responder handles all the subscribing and unsubscribing so you don’t have to worry about the Spam laws!

Auto-responders are also low cost in the range of $10-$20 a month.

A Blog

Your own Blog is all important, this is where you are going to deliver value and place calls to action without being overtly sales like. The Blog will also support your Social Media strategy as your articles will be published to your social media sites. Although the articles will disappear down the news feeds they will always be there on your blog.  You should check out Top Blogs by people like ray Higdon for ideas.

Social Media Strategy

You need to pick a social media platform when you start and focus on that.  As you get more experienced you can branch out into multiple platforms.  When you start to use a platform such as Facebook don’t be tempted to go spam everyone otherwise you could end up in Facebook Jail and worse still nobody will be interested in your posts.

You need to build relationships with people on line, talk about different things not your opportunity.  It is just like if you are face to face, you build a relationship and show interest in the other person, just in a digital form.

SEOPressor V5 Product Review

SEOPressor V5 — What’s New about This WordPress SEO Product?

WordPress Websites are  decidedly one of the biggest blogging platforms in the world today. Even though it is not a free platform, the professional manner of this platform is what makes it more popular. And that is the reason why a lot of online business entrepreneurs are using WordPress. As a consequence of that, several plugins have been released in the market today by which people can enhance the prospects of their WordPress blogs, and SEOPressor is one of them. Now at version 5, let’s take a look at what makes this plugin so mandatory.

SEOPressorSEOPressor has been tested before for both performance and efficiency, and it was found to be well worth all the investment made in it. In any case, people are always looking out for the best possible search engine optimization for their business website, and the fact of the matter is that WordPress SEO cannot get any better than what SEOPressor can provide. If used correctly, SEOPressor won’t just bring a WordPress website to the top page of search engines but it will also bring it to the top of the top page. Results can be expected to figure within the top 3 on the first page.

The Upgrade

In the past, people have had some complaints the previous version was a bit slow. At version 5, the most noticeable aspect is ironically — its unnoticeable presence. SEOPressor V5 runs in the background of WordPress without slowing down the speed of the website unlike most other plugins and its predecessor.

Multiple Keyword Analysis and LSI Recommendations

Calculating keyword density, formatting keywords for search engine optimization, calculating the SEO score of a WordPress Page to determine how well it will be ranked on the search engines, management of content such as posts – all become things of the past.

With SEOPressor Version 5, we’re now able to calculate more than just one keyword at a time for an article. We can rank up to three keywords and with its latest LSI Analysis feature, where it provides users a suggested list of related keywords for them to include into their page, we can now easily boos

t page relevance and get higher chances to dominate result pages. SEO should not be neglected and even Google’s Matt Cutts advocated, “Google does not hate SEO”.

Over-Optimization Check

SEOPressor Version 5 also now solves a huge worry that mean SEO Marketers had in the past. When people used SEOPressor they were afraid of over-optimizing and getting penalized by Google for doing so.

Now, SEOPressor alerts us whenever we’re over-optimized, and we can easily remove a few keywords or font decoration to get back to an optimal SEO score.

Rich Structured Data Support

We always wonder how those rich snippet stars and ratings appear on search result pages whenever we search for certain products, services, recipes, events or even profiles. This is known as rich structured data, and the new SEOPressor V5 supports it.

It allows the user to display the most relevant information regarding their post and Google takes into account visitor behaviour when it comes to providing users the best search experience and the structured data tool would prove to come in very useful in optimizing on-page relevancy. Now it’s even easier to get higher click through rates.

OG Tags and Twitter card Integration

Everyone’s involved in social media and thankfully SEOPressor has updated itself to come with Facebook Open Graph tags and Twitter card integration, which helps in social SEO. These play a significant role in the future of Google searches, as mentioned by Google and many SEO gurus – that we should be putting in these tags and twitter microdata into our source codes. But many of us aren’t that html savvy so what SEOPressor V5 does, is that it integrates these codes for us automatically. It’s that simple.

Smart and Automatic Linking

We also know that internal and external links can be a hassle to do, but it’s always essential for on-page SEO. Well, SEOPressor now does it for you pretty much automatically.

Sure, the first time your typical keyword links used would have to be typed in and then saved but when you use the same keyword again, they would automatically be hyperlinked to your saved URL when drafting out newer articles.

Conclusion

SEOPressor has been designed and developed by Daniel Tan, who is one of the greatest search engine optimization gurus in the world today. His products have always been known to over-deliver and for SEOPressor V5 — it’s no different. Not only has the wordpress SEO plugin become more mandatory with its upgrades, its new features definitely sets it apart from any other SEO plugin currently in the market.

Using Facebook for Your Business

Social mediaAnybody who has a business and is using Facebook for your business is bombarded on how to use Facebook.  There are a 1001 Facebook guru’s out there who can explain how you can use Facebook to promote your business.  Don’t get me wrong there is some really good cool stuff  done by very successful people.  As a small business owner you are not a Facebook guru and you probably don’t have the time to sit and do the work required, let alone sit through all the training.

Facebook Basics

On Facebook you have your Facebook Home Page and you have “fan” pages that can be created around anything you  pretty much want. For the small business owner you need to create a “Fan” page so they can use it to promote your business.  After all you don’t want all your Facebook Friends who are normally your friends and family getting bombarded with stuff about your business. You don’t want to be known as the family spammer.

So the easiest thing to do is create your business page and make sure the picture is relevant and is going to help people identify with you and your business.  When you post to your business page don’t post one line status updates, post Facebook Photos and useful content that would help people.

Link Your Website and Facebook Business Page

Find us on FB If you have a Website make sure people can find your Facebook page from your website.  Facebook provides buttons that you easily put on your website and will allow people to easily LIKE your page.

Facebook Pay Per Click

Pay per click on Facebook can be very successful if used write but before you go pushing that button saying get more fans or boost my page find out a little more about it.  Like all advertising you can spend lots of money and not get the results you are looking for.
