Market Your Art Work

So, I started this website to sell my art work and found that just because you build it…doesn’t mean they will come. Well, that’s only in the movies.

There are only a few things left to do. One of them is to build both sides simultaneously. The other thing is to work on one site at a time. Okay, so I decided that it’s time to overhaul the marketing side by hearing it towards one specific thing and that is showing artists or anyone how to use marketing tools to promote their website.

The one thing that most of us want more than anything is to get our products out in front of people. One of the best tools has been social media. I’m not just talking about the social media on the computer. There is social life every time you leave your front door and you interact with the people around you.

I think it’s because we try so hard to make an impression so that people will remember us and share what we have with others. I am an artist and most artists that I know generally would rather be working in a studio. Not that we’re antisocial. It’s just our creative side is so strong and one we are in the flow It’s hard for us to do anything else.

One of the most important things an artist can do is learn how to market their product. We put our heart and soul into each piece of art work. We create and sharing it with the world is easier than ever. The world is an open marketplace with so many places where we can share our works of art.

We went to take our product and getting in front of as many people as we can. So naturally the computer is our friend. As we go through the steps of getting your work out there. Remember that each your work is your business. It’s what you make of it.

Start with the first step is start taking pictures of all your work. Every single piece of art work you have created take a picture of it. Take pictures of your art work as you doing it’s not as hard as you think everyone has a camera phone, and if they don’t take a picture with any camera you can find even if you have to use the one on your laptop.

The goal here is to show your art work or product to as many people as possible. Start by opening up accounts on any social media site that you find will honor you as a person and your work.

Start posting the pictures on the social sites that you have joined. With each picture you post make a comment of whatever is closest to your heart. You want people to know about your product, your art work. Now while you’re doing this it is to be distracted by the web. You’re going to have to look at this more as an opportunity and dedicate a specific amount of time to it.

There are so many ways that you can communicate and be creative on the Internet that is very important to remember why you’re here. The opportunity to express yourself as a person comes out in your artwork and as much time as you are willing to put in.

 Creating a place where people can see your work and buy your work can be done any where you want it to be.

Who Is Taking the Responsibility?

Even when the days are long someone has to take responsibility for your business. Your days are long and you are really thinking about giving up. That’s right you are feeling over whelmed. Starting this internet business is more work than you thought it would be. What are you going to do? Go back to working for someone else is an option and so is moving forward with what you have started and dive in to it like your live depends on it.

Some people lack the discipline it takes to succeed at a business. They start a business because they think they can get rich over night. If you’re a lazy person you will not succeed at a business or anything else. Never under-estimate your own laziness and lack of responsibility. It’s not working the way you think it should, so there for it is someone else’s fault. They hold others accountable for their decisions and look for excuses to why things are not working.

You are not succeeding because you lack responsibility and accountability for your actions. I cannot help those who will not help themselves. This is your life and how do you live it? You can work for others and let your employer control your life. If you are waiting for something great to happen you are not making decisions to change what is not right in your life. Buy not making these decisions you are waiting for someone else to make the decisions for you. Procrastination is not a skill it is a lack of control. It shows others that they are not important, that you don’t care if things get done because you don’t want to do it or someone will come along and do it for you.

Your job as a business owner is to develop skill that you will need to become successful. When you put the responsibility on to someone else you hold them accountable. If you don’t want to do the work it takes, you are better off working for someone else. Let them schedule how much you are going to have off to spend with your family and friends. Go can’t just sit there and wait for things to change.

Does your job take care of you when you are sick or comfort you when you lose someone who you love? I’m not saying that you are lazy because you work for someone else. If that works for you that’s fine, so don’t complain that you don’t get enough money, credit or time because you have given that power to your employer. Take responsibility for your choices. You do what you do, because it makes you feel good when you are doing it. No one twisted your arm to start to start a business.

You may think you’re not in control because of your responsibilities to your family, yet you do nothing to change your situation. This is too hard, is an excuse that most people use. I tell you that you can do what you put your mind to. It is up to you to get the skills you need to enrich your life. It is amazing what you can do if you don’t give up. No one said it would be easy they only said they would show you they way. You have to do your part, you have to take responsibility.

Responsibility is taking part in the opportunity. You cannot have the spoils without the work. If you know what you have to do and you don’t do it you have no one to blame but yourself. In order to achieve the success you desire you have to attack it as your life depends on it. Get your hands on the training you need and then take action on it.

If you got in to business to get rich quick then you are not going to see the gifts that you get along the way. You will give up before your journey is started. The journey is there for you to experience growing as a person. Learning the skills to help others by showing them the opportunities and giving them the tools they need to succeed. You cannot do it for them you can only show them the path.

How to Use Leverage in Your Marketing Business?

Creating a larger income will take leverage in my marketing business. Why wouldn’t you leverage a network of like minded-people to help each other to get a head? The beauty of network marketing is surrounding yourself with the people you like on your way to the top. They become good friends and mentors that share their tools,tips and tricks so you succeed in building a strong marketing business.

Open communication is the way people can see that you are truly interested in helping them get ahead, even if they just want to make a little extra money. They feel connected to you because your vision for the future is the same. You have no problem keeping the marketing team motivated you are all on the same page. Your skills are contagious the team is infected with the potential to grow strong and all of you will be success. Everyone is going to gain a wealth of knowledge and income. There’s your leverage.

People are the key to keeping each other motivated. Communicating and working towards the same goal is leverage you can’t buy. Your marketing team is working together towards the same goal and is unstoppable. People keep money flowing and the more people you recruit the more financial growth for your team. Everyone has their own dream of the abundant life they want and each person has their own style of doing things. Get to know their strengths and weakness and remember they are your business. Each one of us is at the top of our part of the business all working towards marketing success.

Time is the one leverage that is critical to building a marketing business. So remember that you’re not getting any more off it, your time is priceless so seize the moment. The time you need to do one sale is yours. If you make $10 on every sale you do, and do that 10 times a day that is $100 in your pocket. Now say that you have trained 5 people to do what you do and each one of them makes 10 sales a day and you give each person half of what they sold. You are giving them $5 a sale and they do 1 sales in one day that gives each of them $50 a day and you in turn receive $50 dollars from each person. Do the math you end up with $250 dollars for that day. You are still doing the same amount of work.

Okay here comes the leverage each one of those people your team trains 5 people and in turn they train 5 people who on their team. So on that level instead of you making $10 or $5 per sale you are only making $2 per sale. However you have 25 people on that level who each make 10 sales. Exciting isn’t it now the 5 you started with have 5 teams and the goal in to sell 10- $10 products.

Okay you’re out selling a diet product even better you only worked selling the 10 products, your team sold an extra 50 product and then their teams sold 250 products! Because all of you were working toward the same goal you sold 310 products. Even though you did not make as much per sale by having a team, you made far more than you would have made by yourself. You are just one person. That is the big problem with creating wealth without any help.

You are only given 24 hours in a day. Over half of those 24 hours you spend on activities like sleeping, eating, and doing chores and working towards creating your wealth. However when you have a team that are all working together you have created a leverage point on those hours. So you can just spend 10 hours per week working on creating wealth. You also have a team of 5 who each spend 10 hours a week creating wealth for themselves. Which means you and your team are spending 60 hours per week on creating wealth, and in the example before each of those 5 people have a team of 5. What if they spend 10 hours per week working as well? They work a total of 250 hours per week, plus your team and you work 310 hours per week. That is 310 hours of work put in per week. If you could work 24 hours per day 7 days per week, you by yourself could only work 168 hours in a week.

Your teams joined together are putting in almost double that. If you are only working 30 hours each week you and your team are spending over 300 hours per week building a bigger business. Everyone is working towards the singular goal of creating a successful business.

In fact, this is the way it works at any “regular” business in America. At your local grocery store there are dozens of people working various different shifts all working together to keep the store operating. One person could not run the store. One person could not work all the hours it takes to get everything done. They are leveraging the hours of all those people to create a profitable enterprise. This is an advantage of building a Network Marketing company, you may earn less on other levels, but you have more people working, and more people working means more sales being made, creating more income.

Now you know what the leverage is and how to use it to your advantage. This is the secret of the world of business that is no secret to those who will do what it takes to succeed in marketing. We want a strong marketing team make sure you communicate your goals clearly from the beginning. Your team can grow as large as you want with many teams in place with the same goal in front of them. You’re loyal to the team and the company that supports your goal to become a success.

Would you rather earn one percent of the efforts of 100 people or 100 percent of your own efforts?

This is Seo

What is SEO and how can it help my business? Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a web site or a web page in search engines naturally by using keywords that are woven into your text. It is traffic plus conversion equals successful marketing in cyberspace. The more traffic you can get the more leads you can generate.

Hopeful you are using word press where it is easy to install in the plug-ins section. You just need to click add new under the plug-ins section and type in All in one SEO pack and choose install. Now when you write a post you can fill out the fields in this section with the post title, description and keywords. When you publish your post you will direct the cyber spiders to find you and raise the ranking on the page niche that you are aiming for.

There are two sides to google the left is free traffic the right is paid advertising. Free traffic equals free leads. So when your looking at the search results take a close look at the sites that are at the upper left. As you can see the top is where you want to be.

This is a  big part of branding you and whatever your niche (your product) is .When you google a topic in your niche it will show you the top results. How do keywords work to get you to the top?  You can get there by the search engine spiders finding the keywords you place in and on your site. These words will be recognized by google then ranked for page placement. You are going for the top left ranking on the page(niche) that you want to be ranked on. This will lead to more traffic and with more traffic there will be more leads. This should places you in high standing in your niche. Which will lead to more sales.

Keyword and how you use them for ranking.

  •  Information (People that are looking to start a business are looking for the easiest way to get started and they may want to join you.)
  • The Researcher (The targeting of your customer is often people are just not happy and are looking for something new.)
  • The Shopper (People that are already your customer and are looking for similar solutions.)
  • The Buyer (Looking for you what you have.)

Keywords are great and can launch you to the highest position that google has for your niche. Knowing what your ranking is essential for marketing. Do not over use these words you will get slapped by google and they will shut you down.

You should have full control of your website. Start adding content to your website. This is where copy writing comes to play you need to keep things simple and the placement of keywords can raise your ranks without spamming. Remember that the magic is to make all things work together in a smooth format on your site.

Now you can target the niche with the keywords that buzz around your product. When your primary company is launching a new product is when you need to strike your campaign to increase the traffic. People are looking for the product or looking to start in the business of promoting this product and are is search for you to lead them to success.

Look for keywords that support your niche and you can easily sprinkle them through your content. As you are placing these word you can link them to content on your other pages or sites. The more you attract the spiders to and from your site and your content, the more google sees your site as most relevant in your targeted niche.

So lets say you are selling pond supplies what are the key words associated with this product. Pond are products,fish ponds supplies,buy pond supplies, pond pumps,pond filters,pond skimmers. As you can see all these words can be used in the website,on the website and in all related products and how to tutorials.

Now that you know how it works you can have fun coloring your website, post and pages with keywords.

What’s the Catch

What’s the catch? Is it you? Are you a sponge sucking up everything that can help you get started? You have choices to make? Where do you start? Who do you follow? Who do you trust with your time and energy? More important what about the money? These are questions that are in the back of everyone’s mind when you decide this business is for you.

Research is the only way to find what you need. When you do a search on the net you are lost in a sea of advertising. So what are you suppose to do? Think about what problem you want to solve. If you are not manufacturing you are marketing products or supplying information. One thing to remember is that you are on the net and your name becomes your brand. As you are doing your search you want to find value, you want to find it fast and you don’t want to pay too much for that information. The catch is once you get it you share it.

If you are not at the top you have to find ways to get yourself to the top so that everyone one is seeking your help, you have to gain value it is not handed to you. The niche you decide to market in will decide what you are all about. You have to pick a product to market. I have some that may interest you; the value is in the product and the training that the company has to offer. The timing is always right to join a company that gives you the tools you need at little or no cost.

The amount it cost you in dollars is minimal to your pocket, but the catch here is the time it takes to start earning is up to you. Companies that are making millions with you represent them in promoting, selling and recruiting. They spend their money to supply you with all the tools to succeed. There are many ways and many products if you want to form your business with one of these companies. The better you work at representing the company, the more money you will make and the move valuable you gain to your business. You can start without a product if you have built a brand of your own. Your knowledge is the value your business. can you show others how to duplicate, train, become a brand of someone who is working and making money on their own terms. Now are you willing to move forward?

Well you came to a good place to start, I have worked for a year with and researching companies that have training in place or represent top ways you can learn, earn and start your internet business on the right foot.

Companies that help you train and supply you with product information that is current and new and are ready to work with you have to take their companies and your business to the next level. They are not out for just themselves they know the value of the people who help them bring their product to the world and are will to pay you highly for your brand.

Consultants, Reps and Independent Business Owners,  are the titles of the roll you fill and this is a way you can get started with companies that work hand in hand with you to represent their products and help you build your own business. Companies make a point of supporting and practicing being green is important to me and is one way I decide on whether I will do business with them.

If what you put in your body helps you feel better, you will want to tell everyone, so they can feel better to. You can help yourself feel better and share it. You are creating your business and become very successful? These companies all have the best systems in place; they give you the tools you need including a website, support and training. What’s the catch? You do have to put a small amount of money up in the beginning and there is a site fee or product order to full fill. These are very small amounts to pay for great products that support our health and wealth not to mention the training and support.

Building a business on the internet is easy when you have the tools, but most important is that you are going to have to work at it every day just like you would open the doors to a business at the mall, the difference is the world is your mall and you are in control of how well you do and what business choices you make will show everyone who you are. You want it, you have to start now. Who do you know that is doing what you want to do, as marketers you might follow a top person in products and companies in your niche. One way is to search for a product; Successful people are people who are more than willing to show you how to join their team. They will show you how to get started and lead you to success. You will only make money if you take action. Good luck!

The Marketing Truth

Most people you meet do not want to hear you’re in marketing and you’re in business for yourself. Your friends and family probably won’t understand 90% of the population works a job. They make money just fine and are willing to work at a job for forty years, at a company not knowing how their job security will change at the first sign of financial problems. Vacations scheduled for when it is convenient for the company and their sick days limited. While it may take some time and effort to build your business and you will making your own schedule with the funds to do everything you imagined.

A promise of retirement funds keeps them on a string like a puppet not knowing if they will have enough retirement. They see other retiring with funds that don’t match inflation. Medical problems can drain your bank account so fast. A diagnose can reach the most medical coverage that is not included in their retirement package you had picked 40 years before. The great thing about Network Marketing is building residual income, which becomes retirement income. If this is working for you, you are content to do what 90% of the world. Marketing is not for you and that’s okay, this is not a job this is a life style.

Family and friends are not supportive; they don’t understand that you did not fall prey to a scam. You have made a choice to follow a dream to have control over your destiny. Provide a life style for you and your family that is not bound by limits. You thrive on the endless opportunity you have for grow and are willing to share your knowledge with others that have the same goals.

The truth is that 90% of the people you talk to are not going to want what you have to offer and probably never will. Have comfort in knowing that the internet market is like throwing out a net in a galaxy of stars, you want to catch the ones that are going to shine for a long time. Bright enough to shine on everyone they touch, passing knowledge to everyone the meet.

The people who want what you are building are sick of the way things are going, not knowing if they have a job from one day to the next. They are living pay check to pay check and crippled with worry about how they will plan for the future with the way things are today. Then there are those people who look at this as the best opportunity to bring changes for the way they have always seen themselves living and helping others do the same.

You can live with fear everyday and do nothing or you can take that time and put it to work to change your life. This business is not for you if you don’t want to change and grow, if you don’t want to develop skills that will improve your life and the lives of everyone you meet. Not easy yet noting that last a long time is, the marketing truth is that 90% won’t want your business and that’s okay because the people you attract are those that are going to shine like a rare gem or a bright star. Those of us that are in this business take the training and improve our lives and the way they see the world.

Marketing Weight Loss As Your Home Business

Weight loss and business have a lot in common. You tell yourself when you are in doubt; you can’t do this. Who cares about what others think and what gives them the right to judge? This is some of the crap we feed ourselves as we put on the pounds or avoid getting starting at owning your business. We stop looking in full length mirrors knowing you still look good from the neck up and your unemployment hasn’t run out yet. It is also what you think when others put you down for marketing on- line when you don’t make money when you start out.

We think about others judging us and assuming we know what they think. Truth is that no one really cares. You would think your spouse should care, but he or she doesn’t notice. My husband and children don’t have more than one thought at a time and it usually is about them. My health and wealth is my responsibility. My responsibility is to myself and my family. Change the thought change the person from the inside out.

When you see an old friend and they are so glad to see you, they ask about everything except your weight. They are never interested in hearing about the marketing business and they are your friend so they will let you ramble on just don’t throw your pitch at them. They will ask if they want more information. The only one that can make you feel bad about yourself is you. Why beat yourself up on what others may think of you. If you don’t look at yourself in a full length mirror you are the only one that can change it. Don’t be afraid of what you see and you might decide to do something about. Wouldn’t you rather have walked away feeling the pleasure of the visit, feeling comfortable in your own skin and confident in who you are. You are a marketer so offering them a product that you know will help them solve a problem.

I’m fifty-one, I look at myself everyday in a full length mirror, I try to change the things I need work on. Every day I am improving, every day I learn something new about myself and my business. I know what my friends and family think of me. As you get older things that matter change for all of us and everyone’s need are different. Some of us want to age gracefully and others will fight it tooth and nail. Then there are those of us who want to take charge of our wealth and build our own business but are afraid to get started. The fact is you have to do what’s best for you. Take a good long look at yourself from top to bottom, if what you see is working for you, great. If not change it!

You can improve, if you really want to. There are companies that can sell you health in a bottle and have it delivered to your front door. The best part of these companies is the products; they let the science back up the products and the testimony by pleased customers who have found the answers that they are looking for. The opportunities with these companies are great if you are will to work for your future. They supply you with a web site, training by the top earners in the company and compensation plans to support you. Now you are on your way to creating a business.

So many people are looking for products that support their weight loss efforts. I work directly with some of these companies. These companies are great; each has a weight loss program different from the other, they all are great tools to help you with your weight loss efforts, I know that when you find something that you like, you want to share it with everyone you come in contact with. So get paid for your recommendations. There are so many people looking for away to start a home business and companies that put your health first.

I am a marketer and I can tell you this it does not matter what product you use to help support your weight loss. First you must check with your doctor and run the product information by them. Then you must stop making excuses, weight loss and marketing both take a lot of work and your choice to join the marketing community is not something you should do if your heart is not in it. The choices you make in business have to come from the knowledge you gain and the training you apply. Remember if you want it bad enough you will use these products and the weight loss programs as a tool to gain success. You know that there is no magic pill for weight loss and there is no business that becomes successful without working hard at it. Good Luck with both your weight loss and your business choices.

Residual Income Is Worth The Time It Takes Building A Business

Residual income is in your grasp so let paint a picture of how this matters to you. The income you no longer have to work to create. Rock bands, singers and movie stars earn a residual income. The money that they make off the efforts they put in developing a career results in the income that they will make off of movies and CD’s as long as they are selling them. A residual passive income creates retirement income. The best part is you will only have to cash the checks.

The time you spend building your business is equal to the amount of residual income you want for you and your family. So, put a lot of time in now and the money will flow in to your family’s wealth month after month for years and years. The money you invest to start an internet business is nothing compared to opening a restaurant or any other business in your city or town. It doesn’t matter what business you plan on starting they will all have their own set of challenges. Pick a way that will get you to your goals and do it.

You must have access to a great opportunity, a computer and a phone. Now that your business is running you really don’t have to put any more money into it, just your time. Think of it like you were the star of a movie and now you have to make appearances’ on talk shows to advertise. Now the movie is 10 years old and every DVD that sells, you make money; every time your movie plays on TV you make money. You are now the star of your company it is on auto pilot and you are making passive income.

If you were the owner of a business that is in a building you will have the cost of maintaining the business in the city you are in that includes inventory. If there is a fire or if the economy is bad you lose everything and then decide on whether to rebuild or not. You will not experience the risk or have the overhead of a tradition business. The advantage of building a network marketing business is that you train people to build their business, and when they build their business, you make more money. You also encourage them to train their teams, when their teams build everyone makes even more money. As you build and train your team, you will reach the income level you desire. When your team is trained to build, the growth will keep occurring and all you will need to do is make sales when you want but mostly your job will be just to keep encouraging your team.

Searching for ways to achieve your dream can wear you out; seal your spirit and making you feel defeated. Then along the way someone will put their hand out to help you stand up showing you a different way. This is when you find a way to make your dream a reality.
