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!

My Top 3 Easy Ways To Build A Downline

Top 3 Easy Ways To Build A Downline

I have been in direct sales for eighteen years and have been working online since 2005. In that time I have tried hundreds of ways to recruit people and spent thousands on things finding out they didn’t work.


I have tried every traffic exchange on the market, solo ad providers, buying lists, leads, systems of every shape and size and have even tried to buy downlines and 99% are a load of rubbish.

I now have over 5000 people in my existing downlines so I know the following methods work… Just test them and you will see they do too.

These are my Top 3 Easy Ways To Build A Downline. 


1. Write a blog….

This is by far the most time consuming option but once you get it up and running it is a great way to give you credibility and show that you are going to be around for the long term. (It takes about 30 minutes per post once you get up and running and takes 1 hour to set up.


People don’t just want to join a business, they want to join someone who knows about the business. A blog is a great way to show you know your business. You can have one exactly like mine for just $25 per month and you can set it up HERE


Most people give up on blogging because they don’t see a result in a week. There must be a reason I keep doing it after all this time?  If you can’t spare or commit to a few hours per week maybe a home business is not for you anyway.


Having nothing to write is also no reason not to do it. I could give you ten blog posts for any business in ten minutes. Once you start you won’t have time to write all the things you want to…. Trust me!!



2. Solo Ads 

What is a solo ad? Some people are professional list builders and they will charge you to send an email out to their list. You just write the short email you want sent and pay them to email it out.

This is a MINEFIELD for new people because there are loads of scam providers.

Good news is that there is one site which has been going for years and you can verify how good the lists are because everyone gets a score!

Just buy clicks to your site from people with high feedback scores. It is called Safe Swaps and even better news is that it only costs from around $17 per 50 clicks… Open your Free account HERE


IBO Toolbox – Facebook but for business owners.

Imagine Facebook but not full of people moaning about their marriage breakup. That’s Independent Business Owner Toolbox. You can join for free and write press releases, talk to people, share links and do lots of things for free.

The secret to IBO Toolbox is that the people on there already have a business, a lot have online businesses so you are talking to warm leads as it were.

I have been using IBO Toolbox for two year and will always use it. It gets ten out of ten from me… Its the first site I open every morning!

Choosing the correct business to promote

If you use these three tools you will never ever have to spend any money anywhere else doing anything else.


It is also important of course to be promoting a business that is actually easy to build, that duplicates easy and that is established. If I could give everyone one piece of advice it is STOP JOINING PRE-LAUNCHES!


Too many people are losing their shirts, wives, homes etc because of the endless churning out of pre-launch businesses. Matrixs, cyclers etc are all just dressed up scams and even if you are making money it is not long term and you are basically stealing it off the people you bring in…. Harsh but fair!





Examples of safe easy businesses to promote….


I promote Karatbars for example which has been around for four years and has over 100,000 affiliates and customers in 114 countries. You could join that today and be making a great income in 3-6 months…. So why jump on some pre-launch? You can find out about Karatbars HERE


I also promote Beepxtra because it is free, it is live and you can make money with it now? I also happen to know the owners very well but thats not the point. the point is I am not risking anything in a free business. Beepxtra information HERE


I also happen to have almost 4000 team members in those tow businesses alone using the three methods I listed above so I do not need to prove they work more than that.


Timing is nothing! Don’t believe all the hype around new businesses…. 3500+ came and went inside 2013 and if you want the list I can send it to you.


Good luck with your downline building…. It’s not as hard as you think when you have the correct tools, products and advice.
