So in my last post, we started our new Series, called,
Your Home Business Success Strategies. 
And today, we are going to dive right into the content,
because you deserve to know the details about what it
takes to run a successful home based internet business.
Since the dawn of the Web, it has become a universal
truth agreed upon by every successful internet marketing
expert around the World, that having a great domain
name is critical to your success.
A domain name is a small group of words that you’ll
purchase from a domain registration company, and then
redirect toward the URL  (Universal Re-Direct Link)
of your Website, Landing Page, Lead Capture Page,
Blog, or any site of your choice.  It can even re-direct
to your Social Media Profiles if you like.
Now, because a URL is the exact online address where
a website is hosted and can contain a combination of
words, letters, numbers and even random, seemingly
meaningless characters like question marks, back-slashes
and dots, it’s a great idea to have a short, targeted domain
name that describes your company, business, marketing
system, product, or service.An example of a long string
URL would be something
like this: http://9nl.org/xjcxTo most people, this would mean nothing but a lot of
gibberish.

So, instead of using that long URL (above), I would use
something like:

www.Workwithcoop.com

I would simple go into my domain register (GoDaddy),
and  forward this domain, to that long URL, so that my
audience would know exactly what the site was about,
before even clicking on my link.

The key is to be creative, therefore, the domain name
you purchase should be short and simple and something
that intrigues a person to click on it when displayed in
an email, online advertisement, or from any website
where your domain is posted, like at Facebook, YouTube,
Twitter, Instagram, etc…

Buying a Domain 

As a rule of thumb, always buy your own name, and
various versions of it.

If your name is John Smith, you might want to buy
JohnSmith dot com, JohnSmith dot net or JohnSmith dot
info, based on what’s available and what the purpose
of the website you are marketing, is. (see below)

If these are not available, you can use variations like
WhoIsJohnSmith dot com, MeetJohnSmith dot com
or PartnerWithJohnSmith dot com.

Even if you don’t use all your purchased domains right
away, you will certainly want your own name for any
personal branding you might create in the future.

Of course, you can use it for your Blog, or YouTube
Channel or Instagram, or whatever you choose, depending
on the market you are displaying your domain to.

As a rule of thumb, it’s a great idea to use your own
name in a domain when marketing to your friends, fans
or followers from a Social Media Market.

People who follow you and are your friends on Facebook,
Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Google
Plus, and/or any Social Media Platform, want to know YOU,
so by using your name or a version of it, this will create
curiosity, perhaps compelling them to click on the link at
your Profile Page and go through your marketing funnel.

When selecting a domain name for online advertising, it’s a
great idea to create what is known as “relevance”, by including
in your domain name, a couple or few words that appear on your
Landing Page (Lead Capture Page), so that when the visitor
lands on your page, they feel that they are getting exactly what
they expected.

And yet because online advertising is not a Social Media
Advertising Campaign, using your name is not the best option
considering that a cold market doesn’t know you, yet.

So, It’s better to go with more ‘Marketing Savvy’ words in
a domain name that are short, sweet and intriguing to your
audience, if the campaign allows you to display a domain
and isn’t just a banner or text link.

Again, curiosity is one of the biggest factors in compelling
people to click on your link.

Your text, or ad copy might even be overlooked, but your
domain name could attract a lot of clicks.

A great way to come up with some ideas, is to build your
Landing Page first, then purchase a domain name that matches
up with some of the more powerful words on the page.

Or, buy your domain name first and then make sure you use
the words in it on your Landing Page at least a few times,
closer to the top of the page in a Pre-Headline or Headline,
or Sub-Headline, where it will catch the attention of anyone
who clicked on your domain name out of curiosity.

This will also help you get a good “Quality Score” with Search
Engines, especially Google, if you are using Google AdWords
to drive traffic to your Landing Page.

If not, and you are relying solely on free & low cost advertising
& marketing, it’s still a good idea to keep your visitors engaged
by being completely congruent between what they expected,
(based on your post and domain name), and what they got when
they landed at your site.

In this regard, when it comes to buying domains for Social
Media engagement, whether it’s for status updates, or profiles,
keep in mind that if one of your Facebook friends, fans, or
followers clicks on your self named domain, but they get whisked
away to a landing page, website or blog that reflects nothing
about you and does not display your name, a picture of you,
a video or anything about you, chances are they might think
they are at the wrong page and feel less interested.

If you are marketing a page that you are not displayed on, then
just make sure that you explain what they are going to see when
they land at your page.

In addition, stay away from any abbreviations or spellings that
are different than its normal spelling as they will confuse people.

For example, for the word “easy”, don’t use “EZ”. (not that I
recommend that word as a part of your domain – just stay away
from abbreviations)

The best domains use short words and phrases that are easy to
spell and easy to remember.

A good domain name should create curiosity and intrigue
people and make them want to see the information at whatever
page they land on.

You can buy inexpensive domain names at Go Daddy dot com,
if you don’t already have a domain registrar that you like.

This is who I use for all my domain registration.

When visiting this website, the first thing you will want to do
is Search for a Domain name, to see if it’s even available.

If it is, you will see suffixes available for the domain you choose,
i.e..com,.net,.org,.us,.biz,.info, etc…

.Coms are usually associated with a website where a purchase might
be made, ie. the word “commerce”.

.Nets could be used for “commerce” like a dot com, but are usually
associated with a network that the website would represent.

.Info is usually associated with just that, information about someone
or something.

.Org is usually associated with information about an organization.

And the list goes on!

Pick whichever applies to you and your business, however,
remember that dot com domains usually get the highest click
through rates,
 not because you’ll have the best domain name
online, but because.com domains were the first to the marketplace
when the internet was still in its infancy and if people forget
that your domain is a.net or.biz or.info, they will always go
to the.com version of your domain.

Be aware that although it could only take a few minutes, it
could take up to a few hours for a newly registered domain
name to be active, so be sure not to start marketing it or sharing
it with others until you have thoroughly tested it to make sure
that it forwards to your desired website.

Forwarding your domain to your URL is similar to someone
calling your home telephone number, but being “forwarded”
to your cell or mobile phone.

Forwarding a domain name is the same concept – you choose
where your purchased “Domain”, forwards to, in this case, your
website URL.

You can even “mask” your domain name, which simply means
that when a visitor lands on your site, they will not see the URL,
but the domain name which you purchased, forwarded and now
displayed in the address bar of your website.

So this is how to select a high converting domain name for
your business and how to make sure that your Landing Page
and/or Website gets as much traffic as possible when advertising
and marketing online.

Just keep in mind that your domain name marks the beginning
of your Marketing System or Funnel, so make sure that it catches
people’s attention, compels them to want to look at your business,
and is a working link that will take them directly to your website.

 

Next, I’m going to send you Part 3 of Your Home
Business Success Strategies Series.

It’s simple, but it’s so important to start your business out correctly
for the most success, in the shortest amount of time, with the least

So you want to have an online business,
make money from home, and live a fun,
highly profitable “Laptop Lifestyle”?

 You know – where you can come and go
as you please, set your own schedule, and
work from pretty much anywhere in the
World – as long as you have an internet
connection?

 
Sounds great, right? Well, it is!

 Thousands of my friends live this
way. Matter of fact, we can even make money
without using a Laptop.

 That’s right, you can use any device, like
a smart phone or tablet.
 Heck, most of the time, we make money
when we’re not even working at all.
 I’ll explain later on in this series exactly
how we do this, and how you can do it too.

But truly, there is nothing better than being
able to click on our screens, push a few
buttons online, and watch the commission
notifications roll in.

So what makes the Laptop Lifestyle all
possible?

Well, first, the use of technology.

Because technology allows for leverage
and automation that you just cannot get in
most other business models – certainly
not with a job or a business that requires
a face to face presentation or store front.

Then of course, there’s the Internet.

The Internet has brought the World closer
together more than anything in the history
of the modern technology, and it’s at your
fingertips to make money with – 24/7/365.

You can literally make money while you
sleep.

Imagine, as you lay your head down at
night, someone else, halfway around the
World is opening up their eyes, clicking
on your links, and buying whatever you
sell online. Now THAT, is magical!

And then thirdly, a few different tools,
systems & processes that we use to sift
& sort the suspects from real prospects,
do a very powerful sales presentation for
them, make the sale, and process their
order.

That’s right – the Laptop Lifestyle can
even become, hands off – for when you
want to travel, take vacations, or, just
take some time off to spend with family
and friends.

And there are even more resources to help
you succeed – like a strong community of
others helping each other (a Facebook Group
for example), ongoing support, mentorship,
& LIVE training each week.

In other words, with a great opportunity
and offer, everything you need to become
successful should already be in place.

And YES – it can truly be that simple, when
you learn from those who know exactly how
to do it.

We covered the 3 Fatal Flaws that squeeze 99%
of most Home Based Business & Direct Sales
Companies, crippling their members, and leaving
them dazed & confused.

And…

 

And tomorrow, I’m going to send you your first
Strategy for Home Based Business Success.

It’s simple, but it’s so important to start your
business out correctly for the most success,
in the shortest amount of time, with the least
amount of headaches.

If you’re anything like me, you MUST get organized, otherwise you’d get zero accomplished. Between my spending time with my 3 boys, a full time job, 3 businesses, improving my skills, and there’s always plenty to do with my house and year, I have PLENTY to do and little wavelength to remember it all. I’ve always taken organizing seriously. I used to organize and reorganize my baseball cards when I was a kid, my dad was seriously concerned about me. lol. So I decided to share with you my favorite 3 tools to help you get organized in the new year and beyond.

My most used and favorite tool is Evernote. To learn more about Evernote and my other tools that I use to stay organized, watch this short video.

Being a Non “Tech” Person, I often struggle with tech. I recently discovered Fotojet.com

In the past, I’ve used Canva, but today I was having trouble uploading pictures to modify for Instagram. I’d heard of FotoJet and figured I’d give it a shot.

I was pleasantly surprised! My photo’s uploaded easily!

There were many easy to find and use options to edit my photos! Many advanced options.

Watch this video to see how I edit a video quickly and easily. And why I’m switching from Canva.com to Fotojet.com for my photo editing needs.

From now on, FotoJet.com will be my editor of choice

Do you have a facebook page for your business? Are you receiving any leads from this page? Would 5-10 leads per day from Facebook make a difference for your business?

This work is simple. To help, I’m going to provide 3 very quick, easy steps you can take to get leads from Facebook, today!

  1. Create a fan or business page. Use this page to build your audience. Invite your friends to start. You can also find related business or social groups. Join them and start making friends and inviting these friends to like our page.
  2. Build your audience. Don’t post links or pictures of your product or company. This page is to brand you, not sell your product. Provide value to your followers. Tips, info, help, and some marketing. Also make your posts engaging. The more engagement you get, the more people see your stuff.
  3. If you want to get leads from Facebook, you will need to speak to your audience. As people comment, like or share your posts, engage with these people. Get to know them. Become friends. They will share their problems with you. You simply offer the solutions to their problems. You know have a lead.

What is “I.L.T”?.. If you study top entrepreneurs, you will often hear this term. But, what is it? How do I do it?

I is short for invest. Invest time or money. But often both! You can’t be cheap on investing in yourself. Short the other areas, but not yourself. You must Invest to start the “I.L.T”

L is short for learn. When you invest your time and money, be sure to take notes, study, do everything you can to apply and make record of what you learn. Me, I keep all of my notes from books,webinars, calls, etc… in Evernote. This is a cloud based filing system that I use in many areas of my life. I love it!

T is what I’m doing right now, Teaching. Every time you learn something, teach others!

What is “I.L.T”? Watch the above video

The topic for today is “Copy Your Way to the Top” and what in the world does that mean?

All through school we are taught copying is wrong and will be punished.  Yet most people don’t stop to think that is all we are ever taught.  Learn the lesson in class, regurgitate for the test and repeat until you graduate.  All you are ever taught is to copy what you learned and you will pass.  And the most successful people in the world use this every day to reach the top of their game.  Whether it’s a professional sports figure who learned to make the perfect shot from a coach, a business professional who learned the tricks of the trade from a mentor boss or a new mother taking tips from her mom and friends.  We all copy ever day because it works!

So the acronym for this post is COPY. C is for company, O is for opportunity, P is for product and Y is for yourself.

Anyone can copy their way to the top and it all starts with you.

You have to believe in the company you work for and more importantly the company you keep.  Seek out a company that you believe in and immerse yourself in the company of positive people who believe in you.

Believe in the opportunity with your company and the abundance that surrounds everyone. There is opportunity to rise to the top of any organization if you copy the ACTIONS of those who already have reached the top.  And the more you look for and seek out opportunity the more you will find.

P for product means you have to trust in, believe and use the produce or service you are selling.  If you don’t believe in the product find one you do.  Then simply copy the actions of the most successful people and you will have the same results. And it is that really that simple.

The most important thing is the Y.  You have to believe in yourself.  You and only you are standing in the way of your success.  Air travel, the light bulb and the computer you are reading this on are all here because the people who created them THOUGHT about it and made it real.  Even when great obstacles where in there way because they believed in themselves and refused to quit.

So find some who is doing what YOU want to do.  Find out exactly what the did to reach the top.

Then COPY there actions and you will find you have copied you way to the top.

So you’ve built a website and worked hard to market yourself or your product and you’ve received Internet leads…. Now what???   Many people are uncomfortable speaking on the phone, and this is often due to lack of communication skills.

Here’s some communication skills to help you through this.

  • Before you call a lead, research the area code. Maybe you’re familiar with this area. “are you from XXXX?” or “where are you originally from?” Or work with Family Occupation Recreation and Motivation to find out how to help the lead.  Building a rapport goes a long way to securing a relationship with the lead. But don’t overdue the building a rapport thing, you can over do it. This gets annoying to the lead
  • “How may I help you? “why did you opt in to my website” “what are you having trouble with?” are all good examples of what to ask an Internet lead.

Bottom Line, not only should you be thinking about how best to serve your leads and team mates, but this should be your waking thought every day, “Whom shall I serve today?” 

I have recorded some of my calls with leads and uploaded them to youtube. However, they are not public. Email me and let me know you want access, and I will gladly give you access.

Do you often wonder how to accomplish everything you want to accomplish? A Planning Process is the Key!

When you have a home business, often times, you have many distractions and forces pulling you in many different ways. For me, I have my family, my job, my pets, and many outdoor activities, pulling me in different directions. I learned years ago, that a planning process is key in helping me accomplish what I need to accomplish

A Proper Planning process, takes into account personal life, your business and your JOB. For me, if I didn’t have a planning process, I’d be much less productive

I have broken down my main business activities into a few key actions. I plan these activities out on Sunday morning. Every week, I plan the next week and review the previous week. I break down my non-negotiable activities into small chunks of time. I then place these activities onto my planner and into my Google Calendar. I keep my planner with me, at all times. This way I have total visibility of all my responsibilities at all times. I hope this helps you Crush every day like a Super Hero! Want a copy of my activity planner? Opt in to my blog and comment on my blog post. I will email you my activity planner FREE .(Please email me and let me know you did this!)
