7 Ways to Simply Ask For Help to Improve Your Home Business

There are many advertisements on the internet that states grow your home business on autopilot with a system. These companies seem to be selling a “lazy” way to increase your wealth.  You can grow your home business by using some simple strategies.  You might have a great website, capture page, blog etc. but if you don’t have a call to action.  You must ask your potential business partner to do business with you.  You may ask your potential business partners for their business using seven different methods.

The 7 different ways to ask are listed below:

1. Ask for information.

The best way to find out information is to ask questions, and then listen attentively to the answers.  You must not anticipate what you think the person is going to say and answer as soon as possible.  Listening is a dying art that we must all revive.  The main objective here is to focus on helping the person that you are meeting with and not have dollars signs in your eyes.  The type of questions you asked should begin with who, why, what, where, when and how to acquire the information you need.

2. Ask for business.

There are a vast majority of salespeople who are scared to ask for the order.  The actual number of salespeople is 60% that after doing a complete presentation of their product or service never attempt to “close” the sale.  A kid is the best salesperson that you will ever meet.  When kids want something they will ask you again and again until the end of time to get it.

3. Ask for written endorsements.

Testimonials are one of the best ways to give yourself instant credibility.  These testimonials state that you are a trustworthy person who delivers what you promise.  People always want to feel like the person they are about to enter a partnership with is tried and true.

4. Ask for top-quality referrals

Referrals are automatic testimonial that state that a “friend” have looked at your product or service and they felt that you were worthy enough to give you another “friend” name.  They will look at your product or service more readily, than if you had cold call them.

5. Ask for more business.

You must have different things for sale.  It is always cheaper to keep a client, than it is to go out and acquire a new one.  The Business  Model of people like Tony Robbins is to bring you in at lower level products and then offer you an incremental higher cost seminar on a regular basis.

6. Ask to renegotiate.

When you think you are getting the best deal, you come to realize that it can be better.  For example if you think are paying the best rate on your car insurance for many years does not mean you can’t pick up the phone and ask for a better rate.

7. Ask for feedback.

This is probably the scariest one of them all because people fear criticism.  When you ask for feedback you are trying to find out how you can improve your company.  You may be surprise how many new ideas could come from your clients.

You will improve the revenue of your home business simply by applying the 7 ways above.  People are using the internet to move further away from the selling process but asking is the way that some of the greatest corporations have been built.  No sale is made until someone asks for the order.  If you don’t ask then your potential business partner will continue to do what they have always done.  If you continue to do the same thing you have always done then you will get the same results.

The people who are looking for a get rich quick scheme will continue to do so.  The people who will improve their home business the true and tried ways will continue to strive way ahead of the others.  You may use the above 7 ways to increase your bottom line revenue in your home 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’.
