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

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.

How to become an expert? This is what I asked myself about a year ago. I was having some success with my network marketing business especially with the mentors that I’ve been blessed to have, but I wanted to have greater and quicker success. I had been following Ray Higdon for awhile and he had become a friend of mine

From Ray I learned that to achieve what i wanted to achieve, I could follow the same path I was on, or I could leverage the internet to reach more people and grow my business more quickly. I had met with Ray on a couple of occasions and the message was very clear, I knew what I needed to do.

I bought a training product called the “3 Minute Expert”. This product taught me, step by step how to become an expert and be the authority in my niche. You can view my product review here.

In the “The 3 Minute Expert” I learned 3 steps I needed to take to become recognized as an expert and also how to master attraction marketing.

  1. Invest in yourself and Build your Foundation. Through the marketing platform, recommended to me by Ray Higdon, My Lead System Pro I was able to build my foundation in an area, that I had zero experience in, internet marketing.
  2. Create your own blog. Inside of MLSP I was able to follow a system and create my very own blog!
  3. Create Content. Create valuable content to help others. Give, Give, Give, Give, Give, sell. That’s how attraction marketing works.

By utilizing the step by step map that was provided to me from MLSP, I was able to grow my audience from 500 followers a year ago to over 50,000 followers as of today!! And still growing strong.  Now people see me as an authority in my niche thanks to simply following the map provided to me. I now have 3 additional revenue streams(total of 5!). One year ago, I only had 2.

One of the biggest train wrecks about Americans — or really any “first-worlders,” I guess — is their complete inability to understand the need to take a vacation, this significantly affects their happiness. In a given year, Americana leaves about 430 million vacation days on the table. That’s insane. Another word would be “asinine.”

If you go talk to people in American businesses, either informally or via research, the No. 1 reason you always get is “Well, I simply can’t take the time away at work!” That, or some variation on: “If I take a vacation, my boss will think I’m not focused and I’ll lose a shot at a promotion!” No wonder the happiness quotient is so low in many corporate environments.

People take vacations all the time and still get promoted. Promotions are predominantly based on the relationships you’ve built and whether you can make money for the company (and/or tenure). If going away for a week or two is going to jeopardize that, you’re probably working at the wrong place.

Here’s some new research on the value of taking a vacation. To wit:

In The Happiness Advantage, I describe research that shows that when the brain can think positively, productivity improves by 31%, sales increase by 37%, and creativity and revenues can triple. In fact, the conclusion of my HBR magazine article, “Positive Intelligence,” which was based on a decade of research, was that “the greatest competitive advantage in the modern economy is a positive and engaged brain.” To be truly engaged at work, your brain needs periodic breaks to gain fresh perspective and energy.

Very logical. If all you do is grind on deliverables and in-office politics — and believe me, those are there every week in every office, because people ain’t creatures of logic — then how do you even know if you’re doing the work right anymore? At some point, you just become a drone to your office and its culture and politics. If you don’t get out and see something else or experience something else… you’re not really actually helping your office. Bunch of drones chasing the same deliverables in the same way every day, with no breaks? That’s honestly leaving a bunch of money on the table, even if you can’t see it.

Here’s some economic logic, too:

If you’re a salaried employee, and if paid vacation is part of your compensation package, you’re essentially taking a voluntary pay cut when you work instead of taking that vacation time. Why would anyone do that? Four out of 10 employees say that they can’t take their vacation because they have too much work to do. But, think about it this way: Whether or not you take a vacation, you’re still going to have a lot of work to do. Life is finite, and work is infinite.

This is a crucial thing people never seem to understand: the ultimate source of “happiness” isn’t money or work; it’s experiences. You can have experiences in your backyard, yes, but a predominant way to have them is travel. That’s what you should be chasing. The work will always be there.

happiness

Here’s another thing of relevance, right? Sometimes I wonder if the real issue with vacation among Americans is that they don’t have the money and they use the “busy” excuse because they feel bad. Earnings are down, but we’re still around 2.8 kids on average for people that have kids. A five-person vacation to somewhere out of the country, or even a mid-level cruise, can cost thousands, even low tens of thousands. Not everyone has that scratch, and if they do, they might want it for something else (education, a nicer car, a bigger house, more Apple products, whatever). So maybe the real issue is money, but the stated issue is busy. The stated issue is almost always “busy,” so why not here too?

What if, though …. what if there’s a path through all this? A better way! I think there is. And I have an angle on it. Start by watching this video about a new product we’re rolling out (slowly) called Travel Light. You’ll save money, earn money (yep, at the same time), and take cooler trips. Interested? Check this video and let’s talk.

Having a clear, powerful mindset is absolutely KEY to having a successful business. I’m going to share 3 things that I do on a daily basis, to create my mindset.

  1. Meditation. Taking some time to clear your mind of all distractions, is proven to help you both physically and mentally. Dr. Joe Dispenza  has books and research that backs this up. He has a variety of resources that I strongly recommend. I personally, meditate for 15 minutes every morning, using an app on my phone called Headspace. I’ve struggled with concentrating on mediation and using this app and guided meditation, it’s allowed me to meditate more effectively.

For numbers 2 and 3(the BEST methods)… Be sure to check out my video below!

 

3 Other posts in which I discuss Mindset are below.

Are you like millions of other business owners and struggle with attrition in business? The fact is, 8 out of every 10 people who join your business will quit. This is difficult for EVERYONE that has a business and this also happens to everyone, even the rockstars out there, like Bob Quintana, Ray Higdon and Eric Worre.

I also struggle with this and I was excited to catch a webinar by Eric Worre covering struggling with attrition in business.

With low barriers of entry, home businesses often struggle the most with this. To open your own low overhead, home based business, the cost is only $49 to start the process. So, if someone is struggling, it’s as easy to walk away as it was to start your business. Traditional businesses struggle less with this, due to the amount of investment. If someone invests $200,000 into a business franchise, they’re probably going to stick it out and struggle for awhile longer before they call it quits. Or maybe  you have to sign a 5 year lease, either way, you’re committed!

I’ve been in a spot, where I had a $250,000 credit line maxed out, equipment and truck loans for the next 5 years and other marketing commitments, on a struggling business! With EVERYTHING personally guaranteed. I WISHED I could just walk away… Like many people do with a home business.

Some factors to cut down on attrition in business are

  1. Proclaim yourself. Meaning, announce to your friends and family that you have a business and you’re going to be successful at it. State who you are and where you are headed. This puts a little more pressure on you to get into the game and step up to the plate.
  2. Be friends with your teammates. People join your business for you. So nurture those relationships. I’ve made many great, long lasting friends, through business, both online and offline.
  3. Great product experience. If someone lost a lot of weight or improved their health, this is an example of a great product experience.  If someone likes the products of their business, they’re more likely to stick in the business.
  4. Earn MONEY!! When someone joins you in business, make it your personal goal to earn them as much money as you can as quickly as possible! If someone is making money, they’re more likely to continue.
  5. Rank Advance. IF you someone ranks up and has something to be proud of, guess what? They’re more likely to feel like they need to continue.
  6. Build a Team! If someone has a team, they now have something they may regret walking away from. Their team needs them!
  7. Attend an event. When someone goes to an event, magic happens! They become believers.

Do you Go For No ? IF not, you should be. Without No’s, you can’t get to where you want to get to.

Picture a spectrum, with Yes being on the far right. Most people picture themselves in the middle, with left being No and right being yes. That’s absolutely the wrong way to look at it. On the spectrum, you are on the far left and you must make it through the No’s to get to the Yes’s.

This book by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz is likely the best $10 you EVER spend. This book will teach you how to make a fundamental paradigm shift, from one of being disappointed by No’s, to one of looking for No’s and receiving Yes’s.

Go For No

Watch my video below for help on making this paradigm shift.

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

Why Blog? I used to ask myself that question…

Then I knew why and I still didn’t blog…

But after meeting with Ray Higdon one day, I decided to jump in. I started with one of Ray’s products, and the rest is history..
