What Are Your Options If You Hate Marketing on The Telephone?

Probably the most popular way of marketing a home based business is calling leads on the telephone. This method works for a ton of network marketers and home based business owners. However, not everybody likes doing business on the telephone and in fact some people hate it. So are there any really good options for people who hate the telephone?

Yes! In fact there are a lot of good options.

To start off there are pretty much two different types of marketing. Online marketing and offline marketing. Online marketing is great because it allows you to work 100% from home. You can literally make money and never get out of your pajamas. Offline marketing or local marketing (belly to belly) is good for people who like to get out there and mix it up. This is for those marketers who like to talk to people in person…you know those blue personalities out there.

Here are a few ideas for both online and offline marketing that really work!

    Online Marketing

1. Article Marketing – This is a great way to draw traffic to your website or blog. It’s also a good way to share any type of knowledge that you may have.

2. Blogging – It’s fun and easy. You can pay for a blog with a domain name or you can start off by using a free blog. Blogging is personal and you can literally write about anything. It’s a great way to talk about your business and again drive traffic to your business website.

3. Social Networking – Social sites like Twitter and Facebook are really popular and once you check them out you’ll see why. They combine fun, and marketing at the same time.

4. Video Marketing – People like video. It’s one of the best ways to get the word out about your business or products. Video marketing is free and you don’t have to have the best equipment to benefit from it. Just a computer and a camera and you’re good to go.

    Offline Marketing

1. Flyers – simple, cheap and if you do enough of them they can be very effective. You can do them door to door or put them up on bulletin boards around your town and local area.

2. Local Meetings – Easily the most popular type of offline marketing. The meeting does all the work for you. Just get the prospects to the meeting and let the meeting pitch the business for you. This is especially great for people who aren’t entirely comfortable pitching the business themselves.

3. Car Signs – You know what I’m talking about. You see them all over don’t you? While car signs can range from cheap to fairly expensive it’s a great way to advertise your business everywhere you go.

4. Talking To People – I know, I know, it’s way too simple and obvious but you would be amazed at how your business can grow if you just strike up a conversation with people you meet at work, at the store, or at your child’s school. Just talk to people, it’s really what the business is all about!

The question is…..what seems comfortable to you?

When all is said and done, it seems quite simple right. Choose a method of operation and just do it, right? Wrong…..most people have no idea what they are doing when it comes to any of the methods shared above. What everyone needs is a system…..something simple and affordable that will allow them to learn and be coached to successfully implement these methods.

Second Income Coach does just that.

Surrounding Yourself With Positive People

This week I took the family to a Lady Gaga concert. Now I must tell you I am not a fan, and that is was AWESOME! Did you know she was told over and over again she would be nothing! She couldn’t sing! She couldn’t play the piano! She was ugly! She shared this story with audience and how she persisted and never gave up to fulfill her dream.

NOW she is one of the top if not the top performer in the world! How’s that for confidence?

Confidence is so very important in anything you do, and when you are first starting out in building your business from home you must have confidence. In many cases confidence can be the one thing that makes or breaks you as far as how much money you’re going to make or if you’re even going to stay in the business for very long. Even if you have a lot of confidence it can be hard to maintain it if you are surrounded by negative people all the time. That’s why it’s so important that you are constantly surrounding yourself with positive uplifting people.

Anytime you do something that is different or off the beaten path people are going to have strong opinions about it. While you might have a lot of people who think what you’re doing is great you will definitely have a few people (sometimes more than a few) who don’t approve of it or don’t believe that you can succeed. You have to learn to ignore the negative people if you want to be truly successful working from home. It only takes one or two really negative people to make you doubt yourself and your business.

That’s why spending time with positive people is so important.

Hopefully the people who are closest to you will be some of the most positive people. However, if they aren’t you can still find comfort in spending time with other people who are in your same business or work from home as well. Chances are that they have gone through the same thing that you are going through. When you have those people that you can talk to and confide in when times get tough you are much less likely to give up on your dream. So find and reach out to people who you can trust to keep you motivated and help build your confidence so that you don’t give up.

Finally, you don’t have to get rid of all the negative people in your life. You just have to learn to ignore them. All home based business owners have dealt with people who don’t believe in them and if you keep going and continue your path to success chances are they will change their minds. Until then ignore the negative comments and always keep a good group of positive people around you at all times.

Happy Marketing,

Announcing The Ultimate Marketing System

Did you know that most people coming online today and a majority of those already online, have no idea how the internet works!

It’s a fact.

So many people struggle with trying to market their business or service, especially those in the Network Marketing arena. You deserve to succeed! You deserve to prosper! You deserve to learn the “Skill Set” to become a “Ten Thousandaire”.

Earning Ten Thousand dollars or more per month in income with all your businesses! What would your life be like? Think about? Can you see yourself doing it?

The only way to get there is to follow a proven system.

Introducing “Second Income Coach” SIC. The ultimate Funded Proposal Funded Sponsoring Marketing System! This system was created to assist you with growing your business … whatever that may be. It doesn’t matter if you are a Network Marketer, MLM’er, Affiliate Marketer, Internet Marketer, or just plain working from home selling stuff. Second Income Coach will assist you to grow your online and offline marketing skills and turn you into a “Ten Thousandaire” if you so desire.

Do you deserve to be a “Ten Thousandaire”?

It will take hard work and dedication! Are you ready for the challenge?

Now you’re probably wondering what the SIC Funded Proposal Funded Sponsoring Marketing System is all about, right? Well, “Funded Proposal” or “Funded Sponsoring” is not a new term in the online industry, although it may be brand new to you. A Funded Proposal is simply completing an initial sale to your prospect before you offer them your main product, service or opportunity. Normally this is done by selling a low cost information product, training product (SIC) or low cost introductory product or service.

Funded proposals work well because they allow your prospect to experience the sales process with you, prior to committing a lot of time or money. Usually the offer and sale happens relatively quickly and in the online world it is always done with an automated sales process.

Once your prospect purchases something of interest, usually information from you, they will begin to trust you as a marketer, mentor, sales person, or even vendor. They will decide if you have provided value for their money, and they will determine if you are someone that they want to do further business with.

This all takes place in the subconscious mind of your prospect or customer.

From the “sellers” prospective ( YOU ), you have been able to generate a small amount of income from the sale of the initial product which is intended to help cover the cost of advertising, building your list to generate the next sale. By re-investing the initial sales revenue, you can then “fund” future customer acquisitions getting you more new customers or potential prospects, without taking more money out of your own pocket.

Let me ask you this….if your advertising was funded by a system and you never had to pay another dime of your own money on advertising, would you be interested in using that system?

Of course you would, and that’s exactly what you have with the Second Income Coach (SIC) Funded Proposal Funded Sponsoring Marketing System. Once you get it up and running, it will generate those “initial sales” for you like clockwork, putting that money in your pocket so that you can pay for more advertising to grow your business or businesses.

Funded Sponsoring is simply a funded proposal used in the online marketing arena. If you have a network marketing business that you want to promote, wouldn’t it be great to have an endless stream of people to talk to that didn’t cost you any money out of your own pocket? That’s why SIC was created! It’s designed to monetize your list, which is making those initial sales for you, so that you can then take that money and invest it back into more advertising. In addition to that, you will have everyone on YOUR list. So you can contact them about your primary businesses. Funded sponsoring….genius isn’t it?
