Ask Effectively to Win in Your Home Based Business

You are running a home based business that is direct sales marketing vehicle. The presentation aspect of your product or service is great. The problem that you are having occurs at the end of the presentation. At the end of the presentation like 60% of the salespeople fails to ask for the sale. You might have we call “lay down” occasionally in your home based business.  The majority of your sales are going to come from asking for the sale.  There are a number of ways to effectively ask your potential business partners to ensure that your asking gets results.

Effective ways to get the best results when you ask for the “sale”:

1. Ask clearly.

Your choice of words is critical because words are very extremely powerful. Your request must be well thought out and coherent. If you are saying thing but you body language is saying something else then the message will be twisted. Your mastermind group would be a great resource if you have someone who is great at asking.

2. Ask with confidence.

You don’t have to speak loudly to project confidence. Confidence comes from being prepared and knowing your product or service well. The quiet strength of your confidence is clear to your potential business partners. The confident person tends to be better off then people who are hesitant and uncertain.

3. Ask consistently.

You have to ask at least three times just worded a different way. My sons ask me again and again when they want something. Kids are probably the best salesperson in the world.  A successful person will ask consistently and will not shy away from the first no.

4. Ask creatively.

You must let your creativity work in your favor to get great results in your asking.  Out of the box thinking is sometimes required to show your product or service to your hard to reach potential business partners. The internet is great for growing your home based business online, but they are still many offline ways to generate leads.

5. Ask sincerely.

The best way to show sincerity is to just be you. When you are being truthful, then your potential business partner will feel it and respond to you in kind. For instance, your video marketing does not have to perfect in your home based business opportunity. Your business partners will open up to you when they know that you are a “real” person.

They are many people who have changed the world simply by asking. Winston Churchill asked the people of the United Kingdom to “never, never, never, never give up” and Great Britain was saved from invasion. Your head down with your hat in your hand is not the proper way to ask.  When you are in a business that truly helps people, then there is no reason for you to hang your head low.  You must boldly ask for what you want. You must ask using the ways that we discussed to achieve success in your home based business.

Mastering With a Mastermind Group Will Help Your Home Business Income Opportunity

A mastermind group is needed  to help you with your home business income opportunity.  Your mastermind group is a sharing of the minds of like minded people.  The main purpose of this group is to support each other professionally, personally and emotionally.  You may also share ideas and information that will help each other in your home  business income opportunity. There are four main actions steps that you need to go through to bring your mastermind group to life.

The 4 Action Steps are listed below:

1:  Select the right people

The importance of the people selected is very essential to the overall success of the mastermind group.  You should limit your group to six people.  The power of 6(yourself+5) is phenomenal and selecting them must not be taken lightly.  You are looking for individuals that are likely to create a synergy and provide positive energy to each discussion.  The negative people who just want to dump negativity are not welcome.

2: Everyone must make a commitment

Your mastermind group is for long term supporter so short timers are not welcomed.  If your meeting is set for once per month then each member must be there on a consistent basis.  You must set up an exit strategy and procedures ahead of time to eject a member who is not working out.

3:  Decide when, where, how often and for how long you want to meet

A good rule of thumb is two to three hours every month.  You should select either a breakfast time frame or one at the end of the business day for meeting time.  You must choose a location that you consistently go to every month.  If is very important that you maximize your time to tackle the issues at hand.  Setting up your rules about turning cell phones and other distractions will help your meeting be more productive.

4:  What will you talk about?

You must elect a chairperson to help keep the conversation going in a positive way.  You should start the meeting off with positive comments about something great that occurs in your life or business since the last meeting.  You must give everyone the chance to talk about what is happening in their personal life and business life.  If a particular member has a crisis or other problem that must be addressed, then reserve time to discuss it.

Your Mastermind Group is not only for helping you keep a positive mindset in your home  business income opportunity, but also in your personal life.  You must not take this group lightly because many successful people have they own power of 6.  Billionaire Warren Buffet donates billions of dollars to Microsoft giant Bill Gates for his charities.  We might from the outside looking in think that is crazy, but who are billionaires going to have in their power of 6.  The rule of thumb is that if you take your 5 closest friends’ income divide total by 5 that your income may be accurate predicted. Your mastermind group will help you make your home  business income opportunity a success, so select the individuals in it very carefully.

Use These 6 Effective Confidence Building Strategies in Your Home Based Business

There are 6 confidence building concepts that are simplistic in nature.  These concepts will give you outstanding results in your home based business.  A lack of confidence can make even the strongest person weak.  Samson’s strength was in the length of his hair, therefore giving him the confidence to lift any object placed before him.  When his hair was cut off, his amazing strength was gone.  He lost his strength even though he had the same physical body structure.  When you look back at this story was the strength in his hair or his mind.  “The Power of Focus” by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt discusses 6 confidence building strategies to implement in your life and business.

These 6 strategies are listed below:

#1:  Focus on your past accomplishments and not your failures. If Samson looked at the things that he lifted in the past, then he would never have had a problem lifting the same items the same day his hair was cut.  You could coach yourself the same way you would if your had a friend with a challenge.

#2: Our personality is formed due to the books that we read and the people who we meet.  You must read inspirational stories in the form of biographies and autobiographies.  You may always find comfort in knowing that you are not the only one that faces challenges.  You will always have ups and downs in your life so accept that fact.  A life without challenges is a life that is not worth living.  The right mindset will allow to win challenges more than you lose.

#3: Gratitude is something that is very difficult to have when the chips are down.  You must be thankful because no matters how badly off you are there is always someone in a worse predicament than you.  If you don’t believe that then go and volunteer in a hospital.  Your issues will pale in comparison to the ill fortune of other people you meet in your life.

#4:  A masterminding group of mentors, friend and family will be instrumental in regaining your confidence.  The people who know you will be able to remind you of the accomplishments that you have achieved in the past.  It is not bragging if someone other than you is giving the praises.  This will even further emphasizes the people who you remain in your inner circle and the ones that you should let go.

#5:  The best way to get back on track is to get things done.  You should start by first setting some short term goals and finishing them.  The one thing that will defeat you is self talk, don’t beat yourself up if everything does not go as planned.  You must continuously focus on the overall picture of success in your home based business opportunity.

#6:  We must celebrate our accomplishment every week to add continuity to gaining our confidence back.  When you accomplish a goal on your goal sheet instead of crossing it off highlight it.

If after going through these 6 steps and your confidence is not fully restored, then go back to step #1 and start all over again.  Life is made of cycles so when you are in the valley you must do whatever it takes to get to the mountains.  When you are working your home based business you will face similar circumstances.  You must have an attitude of a continuous and never ending desire to be successful.

Give and the law of value will multiple your profits automatically amd exponentially.

Marketing List is Necessary To Ensure Success in Your Home Based Business

When I sold a home care system door to door we sold on average only one machine per household. We contacted our customers occasionally if we were in their neighborhood. We fixed minor service issues and sold them supplies. What if we could have had our customers opt in to our list?  How many more additional sales could we have made? The rapport and trust was already established so additional sales would have been much easier. The entry of the World Wide Web years later makes repeat business possible. The capability of the web makes it possible to develop this marketing list.

A marketing list is a database of people who have opted in to your “site” to receive information from you voluntarily. Your marketing list is equity in your business that you can take with you if you are terminated or leave your current home based business company. When I sold this home care system door to door a great relationship was established. I could stop by that home anytime I was in the neighborhood to say hello. Your list offers you the same benefits, because you may contact them anytime through your auto responder. The people on your marketing list will not opt out as long as a win-win relationship exists. They are following you not the company that you are working with.

You must abide by different rules and standards when you work for most home based business companies. For instance using the home based business company’s name in your advertising is prohibited. If you violate these rules the company may strip your rights to market their products without warning. Your company replicated website and all the leads that you had in your funnel would be gone forever. When you are placed in such a precarious position your financial future is very uncertain. Your marketing list is the best way to ensure continued success in your business. It does not matter the home based company you work with because your list allows you portability. Your success in your home based business is dependent on the relationship that you have with your subscribers.

Always remember that we become what we think about most of the time.

Which One do You Prefer to Live With Regret or Discipline?

“The fear of failure is a very powerful thing, but regret is even stronger. We must not give into this fear because our whole life will be filled with regret.” this is a quote from the Discovery series in Life Path Unlimited. Fear of the unknown is an irrational fear that is paralyzing too many people.

This fear could simply be something such as making that first phone call to follow a program that will make your life better. This fear is so crippling that the phone may feel like it is over 200 pounds, therefore you fail before you start. The fact remains that no matter how much other busy work you find instead of picking up the phone to call you will eventually regret your inaction.

Procrastination is a direct result of irrational fear, the ringing of the phone might make you pray to the phone god, hoping nobody answers. The conversations that you have might be so strained that you can’t wait to get off the phone. The beautiful thing about these fears is that the more you pick up the phone, dial the numbers and talk to your prospects the easier it gets.

Habits are a behavior that you keep repeating whether good or bad. If you continue to refuse to pick up the phone then it will become a very bad habit. This bad habit will lead you to closing the door on an opportunity that might be the one thing to make you financially sound.

“Successful people have successful habits and unsuccessful people don’t”, so overcome those fears that inhibits your growth as an individual.  You must not allow the fear of failure phobia to set in; otherwise you will be in dire straits. We will succeed from consistent and persistent actions that are taken on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. If you don’t perform these actions, then you life will be filled with regret, because “failure offer no alibis’.

The results are not always rosy in your home based business opportunity everyday. Your income generating activities does not always equate into riches.  The best athletes in the World have a period where they are unable to hit the ball out of the park.  The main cause during this slump period is normally their mindset.

We will discuss one method for turning things around and getting back to winning ways as soon as possible.

The fundamental thing that you must do first is recognize that you are in a slump.  Your masterminding group of your mentor, friends and family will be needed to help you re-think, re-energize and refocus.  The worse thing you could do is try to get back on track alone without any support.  We tend to be our worse critic so if we keep analyzing the situation in our mind.  We will end up over analyzing and over emphasizing the reasons why.  Visualizing is a great way to overcome the slump.

You must think back to a time when you were hitting the ball out of the park.  You may also look at your past achievement, rewards etc of your most positive memories.  This type of positive reinforcement is necessary to get you back to a level of success in your mind.  Thoughts manifest our destiny so forward thinking into future success is a great way to build your confidence.  Back to the basics is the next step to help overcome a slump in your home based business opportunity.

Doing the fundamentals is the best way to knock the ball out of the park again.  Using the system in your home based business opportunity is the best strategy.  You must do the things that brought you success in the past and not the easy things.  The main ways to succeed in your business are lead generation and making contact with your leads, yet you spend your time learning.  The acquired knowledge is great, but if you don’t apply then it is useless.  When you are mentally and physically drained, then taking a break is one the best way to get re-energized.  You will eventually work your way out of the slump because life is full of cycles that don’t last forever. You must focus on one goal at a time on a consistent basis to get your juices flowing again. You may easily get back on the road to success in your home based business opportunity.
