Top Ten Working From Home Tips – November 2014

Top Ten Working From Home Tips 

.

.

I have seen a lot of companies and people come and go in the past eighteen years but some things remain the same no matter what the business is.

.

I currently help over 13,000 people in 150+ countries with their home businesses and many people fail as they don’t know the basics.

.

Learn them with my Top Ten Working From Home Tips

 

 

1. Do not get sucked in by “pre-launches” or the next “Big Thing

If a business is good enough it will last. If a business is good enough there is no advantage in getting in first.  3500+ of these so called pre-launches didn’t last 12 months in 2013.

I could join Amway, Herballife or Organo Gold today and make money because there is a system. Join a business which has a solid history and if you must join a pre-launch be aware it has a 90%+ chance that it will fail!

If a business is free to join, has no monthly fees and free to build like Beepxtra , (Now in its second year), then there is no monetary risk and it shows the company actually has money to begin with.

Timing is nothing! The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese!

2. Do not join a business because of the compensation plan

Join a business because of the product. Join a business because you think it is a good product. Join a business because you think people will want the product.

Do not join a company because the compensation plan promises you will make a fortune! In an established business you can speak to existing affiliates and ask them how they made their money (Past tense)  Overspill and matrix’s are designed to fool you into thinking its easy to make money. Only hard work will make you money.

3. Make A commitment to your business

It doesn’t matter if you are selling Visalus, Amway, Kleeneze, Herballife, Karatbars or any other product… You MUST MAKE A COMMITMENT to doing it for at LEAST 90 days. If you can’t or won’t do that you will fail.

ALL successful person I know have the same thing in common…. They can commit to something!  80% of people will recruit 3 people and then give up!

This always happens for the wrong reasons too!  you don’t know the top reasons why people fail online they are HERE

4. Get into good professional habits

Get out of bed every day and have a shower, get your business clothes on and keep a schedule of your work. If you are sitting in your pajamas then your brain is also sitting in its pajamas! If you opened a shop in the high street you would not go undressed.

5. Learn your product/products

Imagine you worked as a mechanic… would you know how an engine worked? Of course you would so don’t treat a home business any differently. Companies provide websites for training and information. If you do not know your products do NOT attempt to sell them. I see so many people fail just because they don’t take time to learn what they are selling.

Spend one or two weeks learning your website/products inside out before you go telling anyone about them.

6. Find a leader in your business and COPY them

Search the internet for a successful person in your chosen business, call them, join their team and do exactly as they tell you. In direct sales leaders earn from the business you create too so they will want you to do well. The best followers ALWAYS make the best leaders. This is because they listen and can learn.

7. Follow the system exactly.

If the company your are working for has a 90 day plan or a replicated website or system then follow it. It is not up to you to create your own system. Many people I meet online insist on creating their own websites, capture pages and wacky ways of selling when there is a system provided. Its like mixing cement with a shovel when there is a mixer beside you.

Herballife and Amway have a sales system, If I joined them today and followed it I would make money… Fact. I’m not interested in health foods and i’m not overweight hence why i’m not going to. I live in the sun and eat healthy food. 😉

8. Speak to people.

This is my biggest bugbear in 2014. If you don’t like speaking to people become an embalmer or something. Sales, Direct Sales, Network Marketing is about speaking to people. Even if you find people using capture pages you ARE going to have to speak to them.

ONE conversation will be more effective than 10 emails. If you ASK 5 people every day to look at your business 1 will register. Thats 1825 people you have spoken to and a team of 365 personal referrals.

9. Learn your Numbers / Ratios

Many people give up on their home business only because they do not know their numbers or ratios. For example… If you speak to 10 people 1 may register so your sign up ratio is 1 in 10. Out of every 10 people who register maybe one will actually buy…. So your registration to sale ratio is also 1 in 10.

This also means that out of every ten people who register nine do not want to buy. That’s fine, normal, that’s sales!! You do not get upset by nine “No’s” you just celebrate the 1 yes.

N.O simply means Next One

10. Feed your mind every day! 

Working at home can be a solitary business! If you worked in an office you might have a manager to motivate you every day. You need to keep your mind healthy and focused. This is easier to do than you think… Just go to YouTube and type in Eric Worre or Jim Rohn and watch their videos. Spend at least 15 minutes every day watching a video or reading something positive.

Sales is 90% attitude and 10% aptitude

Write that down and stick it to your computer!

The 3 Main Reasons People Give Up On Their Home Business

Why Do People Give Up On Their Home Business? 

.

Whats are you going to do differently in 2014?  Are you going to commit or give up again and again?

home business

 

I have been working with commission only / self employed people for eighteen years and I know 90% of people give up on a new Job/Opportunity/Business in the first month.

 

But WHY give up on a Home Business?

 

These are the top 3 reasons I get and my suggested solutions.

 

1. I don’t have the time.

 

People join a home business because they were feeling optimistic or maybe they got paid and its the end of the month. They think ..why not… i’ll give it a go! Five minutes later they have a dog to take to the vet, car to wash, friends birthday to go to etc..

 

 

I don’t believe this excuse from anyone. If you want to do anything and be successful you NEED to make the time.  Examine your day.. give up that tv program, organise yourself better.

David Beckham is a great footballer because he spent hours and hours kicking a ball into an empty net while his mates were all doing “more important stuff” like playing a Commodore 64 😉

 

 

If you want to be the best or even good you need to make time. Give the maximum amount of time to your business. If you opened a new restaurant or cafe you would be there from 6am – 9pm every day for the first six months…

 

 

Give your online business the same dedication and respect. 

.

.

Let your husband or wife know that you are going to be sitting at your desk for the next three months working on building a new business. Not to ask for cups of coffee or to go for a drive or get a lift to the shops. You are working. 🙂

2. Program/Opportunity Jumping

.

This is one part of working online that is seriously getting out of hand.

.

People seem to think that because someone sends them an email that they have to register for that opportunity and join it.

.

Say no!  Decide on which business you are in and stick with it. Do not jump from business to business because you will fail. Ever hear of “jack of all trades and master of none” 

.

It is possible to be registered with different businesses that help each other. I am with Karatbars and I use Pure Leverage to promote it. I am also registered with IBO Toolbox which is another tool I use to promote my blog.

.

I enjoy going on holidays so I joined a business called MyFunLife for the product. I have Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Stumbled Upon accounts but again these are promotional tools.

.

If you are in a Healthfood company like Herballife or Foreverliving do not join Visalus just because Herballife didn’t work out.

.

Herballife does work as a business so there is a good chance you are the problem not the company and moving to Visalus won’t fix the problem.

.

Learn your product, watch the training, Become good at one thing, become an expert in that field, give it your time and stick to a three month plan

.

Pre-launches, Matrix, Cyclers.. The “Next Big Thing”

.

Over 3500+ Get rich quick, Hyip’s, cyclers, ponzis, scams… whatever you want to call them,  have disappeared in the past year… www.hyipexplorer.com/blacklist

.

.

Joining the next big thing will only loose you money, friends and time.

3. Loss Of Motivation – Home Business Killer!

.

This is the worst, the killer! When 99% of people start a home business they are in the right frame of mind at that moment. Maybe even too enthusiastic.

.

home business

.

Every day I get people calling me, emailing me, full of beans and ready to get started in their new adventure online.

.

They pay for their subscription or whatever it it to join the business, go out and get one or two referrals… then they disappear off the face of the planet. 

.

I call these people the comets…. burn brightly for a day or two and disappear! 

.

The reason for this is that when you own a home business there is no boss there to motivate you daily, you need to motivate yourself!

.

Unfortunately in 2013… If the the IPHONE generation don’t see results in the first two weeks they give up!

.

.

I would also say that 99% of people have unrealistic targets of what they are going to achieve in their home business

.

This is the 12 week Plan for Karatbars…. Notice how you earn nothing really for the first five to six weeks… That’s the reality of any new business.

.

Karatbars Bronze Plan

.

If people REALLY REALLY got their head around this one fact they wouldn’t give up!  And you won’t ever know until you do it. 

.

It’s only the people who stay focused and committed that get the results…

 

I REPEAT…. Opening an online business is the same as opening an offline business

.

You put your money in, you work hard for three months and you should be in profit.

.

The bit people seem to forget is the three months of hard work in the middle!

.

Open a shop on the high street and do half days, days off, open late close early and you will fail.

.

Open early, close late, train your staff, speak to all your customers, learn your products and you will succeed. 

.

How not to give up on your Home Business!

 

This is actually quite simple if you follow these simple steps. 

 

1. Find a mentor that will be on hand to motivate you daily, who will give you a 90 Day Plan and who has been successful over a number of years.

 

I was always taught in direct sales to find the top seller in the room, pick their brains, ask them how they do it and copy them. 

.

I’ve done this in several companies and its worked every time. I’ve even gone on to beat their earnings and figures myself.

.

 

3. Find a product that is low cost to join, has a solid track record, registered company, easy to understand product, large market, worldwide appeal. (Like Karatbars or Pure Leverage) A product you would happily tell your mother about!

 

Here’s a tip on picking the right business….

 

 

Would you be happy to tell everyone your know including family about it? If not… don’t do it….

4. Find all the training you need to make sure you understand the product. ( Like on www.onlinecompanyreview.com , You Tube, Google. Learn your business inside out, watch every You Tube video ever created about it.

 

 

5. Set your goals, what is your plan… $500 per month, $1000 per month, $10,000 per month? How much do you want to earn and how are you going to do it.

 

 

set and reach goal concept

.

Read EVERY email your mentor sends out, ring him/her if you have a question.

He/She  is your Line manager, boss, supervisor, upline… the terminology is irrelevant…  I/They are here to help.

 

Start, make the decision, make the commitment, If you want to be self employed organise yourself.

 

If you want to go on holiday whenever you like, take a day off whenever you like, buy the car you want, live in whatever house you can have it.

 

 

You just need to start, listen, learn, copy and stay committed – Learn more about how to do this HERE

 

 

If you have any questions about anything in this post or just want to get started get in touch. I am always glad to help.
