Your Brand is you

Now you are branding yourself and ready to launch your business on the internet.You want to be creditable, you want others to see you as a treasure with endless value. Everyone that receives your newsletter, sales letter or reads your blog is there for value. Your reputation it is your brand and it is fragile.

The Leader: The person with the answers.

  • What problem can you solve for these people?
  • Can you put yourself in there shoes?
  • How can you bring more value to their business?

Your brand is your personality, your brand is you. How the world sees you is your opportunity to show off how much you know about your niche.  You are the one with the solutions and that will set you apart from others, you are in the position that you are looking for.Show it off!

Here are some important things you should remember:

  • Design is not your brand. Yet it can reflect parts of your personality. How you dress up and go out is the image you want the world to see.
  • Advertising is not your brand it is world’s perception of how we present ourselves and the products we want to be seen or heard. How you act when you are out.
  • Public Relations is not your brand it is getting people to verify that you deliver on what you have promised in a positive way adding credibility to you.
  • Collateral. Collateral is not your brand. It’s function is to add interest and information to those who have decided to check you out.
  • Concept  is not your brand. A great concept can get someone to talk to you as a salesperson or click onto your link. Examples:  YouTube to do your blogging, a great sales letter, banner or add. Keeping it simple( takes a licking and…) you got the idea. Good concepts surprise, great concepts hold attention, Effective concepts are very specific, and very simplistic, about what they want to achieve.

So now that you can see your brand is fragile it reminds me of the saying “you can dress um up but you can’t take em out.” No one will show interest in you if you spam them with ads that are product related, if you want people to be attracted to you and what you have to offer remember this, people do business with the people they like and trust, not with someone who is just posting ads with no value.

As you are branding yourself come up with a design, advertising, public relations that show off your collateral in a winning well formatted concept. My mother always would say if you are hanging out with the wrong crowd it will only get you in trouble, people will see you as a troublemaker even if you are not. As you can see that branding is very important to who you attract to your business. I will only partner with people that deliver on how they brand themselves. If you deliver on your brand it is good decision for me to do business with you it can only make my brand stronger.

Focused on the idea that the new you is ready to deliver, your content for a specific audiences, and then developed campaigns on that concept with personality and style, your style. Put your twist on delivering what your customers (leads) want.

Today we are all trying to get on the fast tract to earning there are no short cuts if you want to be around for along time and successful while you are here. Dress up and go out into the world as a leader and others will follow you. The greatest complement is when someone want to be like you. We cannot be that person we look up to, we can emulate the charter that we respect and that we were drawn to.

Top companies work for years to establish a brand, today we can do it in such a short time on the internet. Social media is launching people to high positions and it is your responsibility to deliver on every thing that you promise. Do your homework, know your company and any products that you are backing, you don’t want to be with the wrong crowd when it comes to credibility. I back the products that I use or that I believe in. These people have prove to me that they can deliver and they will recommend the people who help them along the way to their success. This gave me the option to work with the best educated minds in the industry.

A recommendation is your ticket on the road to success and more then one is the difference between coach and owning your own jet. You should collect them as your treasures for they are priceless and one of a kind. You are the topic and highly regarded in your niche.

Branding is not as hard as we think, we have already started on the right track just don’t forget who you are and be authentic. Stay true to yourself and let your personality shine.

Mindset Of A Leader

Okay why can’t I seem to get in to the mindset of a leader? This is one of the first questions that I had to asks myself over and over. Imagine your self as the leader, position yourself as the leader and be the leader. So why is it harder for some of us and others seem to be the leader from the start.

Mindset is opening your mind to education and the endless possibilities of sharing that information. If you are reading this you have already gain value and you can start this by teaching what you have read, heard or experience to the people who are in your targeted market. You have chosen marketing and that is why you are here and that is why I am here.

Learn everything about your niche and share your knowledge and experience on the journey that you are going through. So many of us have a story to share. Why have you picked the company and the products they are selling or directing people to? I know the health products and how great they are. If I don’t share why, you will never know. Companies today have great websites with a wealth of knowledge filled with ways to promote the company and their products. Keep in mind these sites are owned by the companies.

By answering the questions your prospect and customers have you are giving value. Share what you know about your company. When you learn and are involved with them on a regular bases it becomes easier to help others make decisions to become a part of your company or a customer of the products you have to offer.

This is one way you can position yourself, as an expert and as you do this you will find that you will develop the mindset of the leader. You will be compelled to share what you are learning about the company and the products to anyone who will listen. Thus taking the roll as a teacher and teachers are leaders.

When looking for a mentor I have found that there are few that I want to follow 100% and so many have special qualities that I am willing to adapt in my profile as a leader. That is why I know the more you learn the more you grow into the mindset of a great leader. By taking the qualities I love about these people I can develop my own leadership skills.

These things will help you in your journey to become a great leader:

Start with some free training you can find on the internet. Keeping in mind most marketers are following the same formula. (Know your company, know your product, introduce your product, give away something for free.)  Masters give you a wealth of value and so much is free. Yet they can not make you into what you want to be. You will have to create a mindset free from fear and ready to act on what they teach you. Doing a search on you tube, ezinearticles, word-press, blogger just to name a few that can help you get started. Then there are always the free training you can get from the company you join. Why not take it up a notch and find mentors and soak in the free value and purchase the programs that will launch you into the leadership roll from the get go. So many of these masters have ways you can earn as you learn so your training can paid for its self. They walk you through the process of building your own site, managing your site and developing your own leads (list of clients or customers that follow you).

I found that I was lost is a sea of free training and needed a different approach an that is when I started searching for the people who have the finger on the pulse of what marketing is all about. I am a visual learner and the videos and webinars I found were my ticket. It gave me the confidence to lose the fear and act on my training. So sharing this with you was a no brainier. Get direction and a purpose for what we do. We are marketers that intend to succeed.

Mindset is you having the confidence in yourself and training that you have taken time to learn and want to share with others. Once you start you will see that it was in you from the start.

The way to the future is one step at a time, it is up to us to take the first step.

 

           

Can You Succeed Owning Your Own Business

My friends tell me how lucky I am to be working my business from home. I am very blessed to have a family that supports me, so that I can do what I love. Self management is one of my strengths, sometime I can’t believe what I can get done in one day.

Starting a business is not a walk in the park nor is it going into a wall of fire. As you look over your life evaluate the jobs that done, the education that you have. What skills can you bring to the table. Starting your own business is going to be what you make it. I am the only one who know what I have done up until this point has prepared me for the journey ahead.

The jobs I have chosen have always been around people. Started working at 13 . I have found that it is more rewarding to connect with people then working a machine for eight hours or more. My first job was on orchard I picked peaches, pears, apples and plums. You name it I picked it. Worked at Hersey Park until I graduated. I worked my way through Art school, I sold shoes, waited on tables, worked in a nursing home, I was a bar tending and did freelance art work. I did what I did so I could achieve an education in fine arts and all before I turn 20. I went on to managing restaurants while still was working on my art career. I left the work force after my son was born to concentrate on family and perfecting my Art. Now it is time to take my live to the next level.

Each path that I chose has brought me to this point and by sharing this with you I know that you can see that my life is no different than any of yours. Our past is our strength, we are all driven to succeed whether it is our job, our business, our family, our marriage or our kids we are all driven to succeed.

Okay so let’s get started on living our dream. I did say living, it is education, training and action that will show you the way. I believe the one thing that separating us from the animals is we are not driven only by instinct. By now you should know that discipline and the drive of achieving wealth are at the top of the list. Wealth and income will go hand and hand as you acquire more knowledge you will be compelled to share it with others thus adding to your value and income.

Every Job I worked I gained something of value and I am sure you have too. What do you have to bring to the table? Are you a great manager? Is your thing technology? Do you want to be if the front or behind the scenes? Any one of these qualities is enough to get you started. More than one and you got this down. So our home work for this week is to tap into our strengths and make a list of ways to achieve our goals for the future.

When you think about the past you stay in the past, when you plan for the future you are using the knowledge you acquired from your past to shape the outcome of your life. Live your life with a purpose guiding you to be more than you ever could imagine.

Find a mentor this is a person who has left a positive impact on your life and the exciting choice you have made to market in cyberspace. Follow this person who is getting the results that you can see. A mentor can guild you and educate you at the same time. It is easier when you like and respect the person it becomes a win win for all involved. You will not hurt anyone except yourself if you are running after someone for help especially if you are paying to be on a membership site.I looked for the people that I respect and were up front with how they approach their business.

I am a proud person doing things my way for a long time and I am paying for the information I needed to get things up and running I am determined to succeed. Education is the power source you are look for. I don’t care how hard you think it is going to be, it is going to be ten times harder without someone to show you the way. Things are changing at the speed of light here in cyberspace so finding the best educator for your needs is critical in cyberspace.

 Thank you, Mike for being who you are…Deb

The Big Picture

What is the big picture? The big picture is when you realize that you have so much value to offer the people around you and the world. The big picture is also what drives you? What brings you here to this site? Is it the hope that you have found something priceless (to give you more value than you will find else where)  and not the same old story that you heard over and over.

So here’s the deal: I will share with you my rise to success and I will see you at the top. We all have hurdles to get over. With questions to ask and things to learn. What value can I offer…a question we all have.

I can give you the same thing or I can give you more it really depends on your definition of value. It will also determine where you are in your ability to market. I have the training to launch your business to a new level. We have heard so many sale pitches. If your like me, most sound a like, just more of the same. So here is my question.

 If someone gave you $1 million what would you do with it? What about $2 million?

Before you answer that question take a good look at the big picture here.

When you get the big picture everything becomes clear. It is actually where your value lies as a person and what you intend to do with it. With that said, you need to find your strengths and put them to good use. You need to know your weaknesses, Start taking better look at yourself you will see why this is the perfect opportunity to find if this is truly your hearts desire.  

What skills do you have to back up your decisions on what to do with your millions?

Let’s focus on the strengths that you have. Are you an optimist? Are you friendly? Do you want to improve your life? How about educating yourself? What about others?

  • Optimism is seeing the glass half full, looking on the bright side, positive thinking.
  • Friendly, greeting people with the hello, hi or how are you?
  • Outgoing, ready to take the world.
  • Great Organization skills.
  •  Willing to learn.
  • Discipline

 I am going to live my dream with my millions.

Okay so get started on living your dream. I did say living, it is education, training and action that will show you the way. I believe the one thing that separating us from the animals is that we can take the thought process and turn it into action, we are not driven only by instinct. You are enough, you always have been. Any of the skills above will guide you into making the right decision when it come to money. I am one person that believes you pay it forward whether it is money or knowledge. The joy that comes from loving life and sharing it with others is what brings value to my life.

Money will not last so what value will you achieve by having millions? I know that no amount of money could replace or buy the life I have. It is priceless (not replaceable at any cost). Get ready it’s going to be a bumpy ride my friends. Along with this adventure I will be creating fine pieces of art, taking care of my family, and running my businesses with all the ups and downs that my lifestyle is about. Never boring as I have been juggling for years and love every minute.

The big picture here is mine this is my blog with all that I have to offer, so I want you to know that you are welcome here!
