Time Management – Your Family or Your Home Based Business

Think for a moment…….hmmmmm

What are the two most important things for your future happiness? I hope you didn’t say your collection of music and your car! Pleeeaaase No!

The two most important things for your future happiness are your family (which includes friends) and your business! Without these things you will be unlikely to achieve great financial success, and if you did you wouldn’t have anyone to share it with.

Because these two things are both so important to living a happy and fulfilling life, you want to make certain to give as much attention possible to each of them.

That’s why it’s crucial to understand (Daniel Son, wax on wax off…LOL) how to properly balance your work and family life – so that you get the most from, and give the most to, both of them.

When you think about balance, you might think about trying to keep everything perfect. 50-50. Equal. That’s good, but try to think of this instead (because it will make things easier for you) – balance is a process, and things don’t get into balance and then just stay that way. It’s something you must work at and be willing to make adjustments to.

So I’m NOT going to share with you how to create balance and give you the idea that once you’ve done that you can forget about it. I’m going to share with you how to create balance between your family and business and then how to continually keep that balance in check, knowing that some days might seem a bit out of whack one way or the other. It’s the overall effect of balance you’re striving for, along with making sure that the important things aren’t being forgotten.

While your home based business (that could be MLM, Network Marketing, Direct Sales, Internet Marketing, Real Estate, Financial, Insurance, Public Relations, or whatever) is critical to your future, your happiness and your financial well-being, you’re in business for the benefit of you and your family. You’re doing this so that you can achieve financial freedom, and the freedom to choose how to spend your time.

The two concepts of time management and prioritizing come into play when working to achieve business/family balance. Take time to list your priorities. Which business activities are must-do things? Which ones are things that would be nice to do and certainly helpful, but not vital to your ultimate success? Which can you outsource?

What about your family and friends – your personal life? What things don’t you want to miss out on? Going to your child’s basketball games? Taking your spouse out for a date once a week? Spending an evening with friends? Is it a priority to attend regular religious services, or to participate regularly in a hobby or club with friends. What can be safely set aside? Watching TV? Can you go out one night less per week?

Take a good look at what your priorities are remembering that both business and personal life will suffer without enough attention. There will be places where you’re simply wasting time and energy. Let your family and friends know that this business is something that you must pay close attention to – help them understand what your long term goals are. But keep in mind that without family and friends, your success won’t be worth it. They need your attention to.

Now look at the time you have available to spend on both your personal and home business life. See how you can schedule your time in order to accommodate both aspects. Yep, you may have to cut some things out. You may need to consider outsourcing certain tasks, or getting up an hour early to get some work done.

Remember that balance is like walking a tight rope; you have to constantly be paying attention and making adjustments so that you don’t fall to one side.

Place proper value on both your family and your home based business and let go of the things that just aren’t important. That’s how you’ll achieve balance.

The 80/20 Rule – What the Heck is that?

Many people in the Network Marketing arena loosely use the term 80/20 rule? Well, if you haven’t heard it yet, you are going to now!

The 80/20 rule is better known scientifically as the Pareto principle. Yep here comes my engineering background again. Basically, the principle is a “vital few and trivial many”. That 20 percent of something will be the driving force behind 80 percent of results. This principle or rule can be applied to just about anything.

For example, on a sports team, it’s the star players that are going to be scoring the most points and bringing in the wins. I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s always one player that wins the game, right. Although it’s a TEAM sport, there is always that one player that chalks up the win. The other players, the ones that serve as back up, also contribute to the team’s success, but not nearly as much. There are always a few stars that contribute the most, and several back ups that contribute significantly less. This concept can be pointed directly at your home based Network Marketing or Internet Marketing business!

The 80/20 rule can be applied to your business in a couple of different ways, and you should be aware of and make use of both. The idea here is to run your business like the pulled-together, organized expert that you are. And if you don’t feel quite like an expert yet, keep working at becoming an expert!

First let’s look at the 80/20 rule as it applies to your downline. I bet you can already figure out where I’m going with this. Your downline is a resource. Your downline helps you grow your business. If you have 100 people in your downline, it’s a fairly sure bet that 20 of those people are going to account for about 80 percent of your business. 20% of your downline likely accounts for 80% of your income. And the other 80% accounts for only 20% of your income.

So what are the other 80 of your downline members up to? They’re working, too. But they may not have mastered what it means to be a top producer yet, so they aren’t bringing in the big results. They may never be star producers, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on them or kick them off the team. That only means that there is work to be done. Plus, these 80 downline members are essential for you to find your key 20!

With your top producers, don’t assume that they are fine and that they can take care of themselves and need no help or coaching. While they may be doing very well, it’s still your job to provide constant support, encouragement and training to them.

And what about the 80 percent that is lagging behind? Well, it’s time for you to kick things into high gear! First of all, remember that some people are going to be slow starters. It’s up to you to keep in touch with them and offer them as much training and support as possible. Remember that a slow starter today could be tomorrow’s star.

Next, you can apply the 80/20 rule to general work practices – of all the work you put in to your business only about 20% will account for 80% of your income. It is your responsibility to figure out and focus on the key 20%.

For both you and your downline, it’s important to take the time to look at work activities and figure out what is working well, what could be working better, and what’s taking up valuable time and producing little, if any good results.

If you find work activities that are necessary, but that are holding you down because you’re not skilled at them, or you dislike doing them, what can you do to work smarter at them? Do you need to hire help? Often, by hiring someone to help you with tasks that should be helping, but aren’t, you can increase the overall productivity in your business and turn that task into one which makes a difference.

Now, when you find a work activity that has turned into a complete waste of time, and is definitely not in the top 20 percent of results-getting business activities, ask yourself why this is and whether you just need to dump the task and focus on things that are working well.

Make it work!

The 80/20 rule can be applied to your downline and your work ethics and tasks.

Focus on that top 20 percent that are producing 80 percent of the results.

With your downline, see if you can help some of your slow-starters get a fire burning inside themselves to become stars. And with your work ethics, take time to learn how to fine tune your tasks and work smarter, not harder.

Fear and Procrastination in Network Marketing and Internet Marketing

Have you ever let Fear stop you from doing something? Fear of failing or even Fear of Success!

This Fear leads to many things and most importantly procrastination.

We have all experienced this at some point in our careers, right? Either in our real job, network marketing and MLM lives, or our Internet Marketing at home businesses. Did you know that this experience of procrastination and related fear go hand in hand and produce pain. Mostly sub-conscious mind pain.

Fear! I’m sure you have heard the definitions before….people have told you Fear is defined as False Expectations Appearing Real or Actually Realized. Speaks for itself don’t you think? Consciously we all know that in our experiences, when we face our fears they are not really as bad as we originally thought; thus, false expectations appearing real or actually realized.

Ok….so you’re probably wondering….What does this have to do with procrastination or even network marketing, MLM or even Internet Marketing?

Procrastination is the putting off of tasks that we don’t really wish to do, that are distasteful, and especially the things we are afraid of attempting. Cold calling, setting appointments or the calling of leads would be a great example.

You know how that phone call involves picking up that one ton receiver, dialling a strange number, with the unknown on the other side? OMG! Do I really know what to say? Maybe no one will answer and I will have dodged that bullet. What if someone does answer and then I will need to actually talk to them? I know I only have two to four seconds to make a positive impression. And only 30 seconds for them to make their decision! How will I posture myself? Can I posture myself? What the heck does that really mean anyway?

What about that face to face meeting? That email I have to right? That website I have to build? That honey do list that’s been waiting on me for weeks? With all that’s involved we just completely put off and procrastinate making any kind of progress!

Now the pain sets in. We’ve just gone through all of this self induced anxiety and decided not to do anything so we procrastinate for just one more day. Oh! And that makes us feel like we’ve once again failed in our personal and business life. Another defeat in working our home based business. OMG! I’m never going to make this business work. My spouse will think I am a loser because I can’t get the work completed she wants me to. Maybe I’ll just go read some more motivational books. Yea! That’s the ticket! Perhaps I must work on my attitude! Make better goals! Develop that dream board! Then I won’t have to think about this failure.

Positive thinking, and not stinkin’ thinkin’! Yea that’s it!

Are you kidding me! Our fear is there because we don’t have the “Skill Set”! Period!

You have no idea what to say or what to do!

Do you see the process here? Very simple but very devastating at the same time, right?

First we have the idea of having to do something to grow our business or personal life. Fear sets in and all of those fearful thoughts run through our head. At the same time the pain of the fear sets in and our imagination exaggerates the consequences, we start feeling the pain of anxiety and then we decide to just put it off for right now. We always tell ourselves we’ll be better off if we do it tomorrow especially after reading more motivational books, working on our attitude, and adjusting our goals.

Look at this! Who are we all fooling? We’re fooling ourselves with this thinking. Isn’t it clear how ridiculous this is? Logically, we all know this is just another part of negative thinking; stinkin’ thinkin’ which then becomes sub-conscious mind deterioration. Then we quit!

Wait a minute, back the boat up!

Quitting is not an option! We all have our aspirations, our dreams and visions are on the line here. We all know what strong financial potential network marketing, MLM and Internet Marketing have to offer. Like no other business model in the world, Network Marketing is gaining huge popularity. And with it, we can better our situation and help others do the same!

Are people in your business getting big monthly checks? So why aren’t you? It’s your “Skill Set”!

So what do we do? Simple! This is where personal growth comes into play. We have all heard your business will only grow as much as you do, right? It’s true….Although it’s your personal “Skill Set” growth that’s important!

Now is the time to get with your sponsor, enroller, upline, coach or mentor. Discuss your situation. Do what successful people are doing, and just listen in on what they say. Take good notes. But if they tell you to have a better attitude, set bigger goals, work on your presentation and just talk to more people….please run the other way! If they tell you this, find a better coach. Look for that mentor who will really share what’s wrong with the marketing training that’s out there today!

Fear, false expectations appearing real or actually realized.

Procrastination, putting off what we don’t want to do and know we should do.

This all leads to feelings of failure, lower self esteem, feelings of not being worthy of our own success………………Bull S&%t! I mean come on and get with it! Bang your head against the wall (ok I’m just kidding about the head thing)! This is something that can and will be overcome by those of us empowered with “what to do and what to say” in all the situations we find ourselves in. It is a temporary challenge or bump in the road.

I know what you’re thinking. People think Network Marketing and Internet Marketing are only for those who know what they are doing. The people with the knowledge and years of experience that become successful! How can I sell the Network Marketing model? Where do we start?

Well, we could start at the fact that you are a part of an awesome profession that literally keeps the world market afloat. Really? Yes, my friend, you are part of a profession that keeps currency and product exchanges happening every day. Amazing isn’t it? That’s the first thought you need to have in order to be successful in this industry. If you are not proud to be a professional marketer, you are in the wrong place. If you don’t have a passion or pride about something, do you really think you will put all your time and energy into growing it? Absolutely not!

This profession is not for the faint of heart. You’re going to hear the word no, lose money or have sign ups fall out at some point. In order to be successful, you have to understand this reality and be able to push yourself and move on. Let’s review why you’re here: You want to live life according to your own terms. You want to be home more often to spend time with family. You want to have funds available to put your family through the highest quality life they can have. Whatever your reason, you have to keep that at the front of your mind, because that is what is going to pull you through the trials you will encounter. You’re not a safe and secure person; quite contrary, you are a free and exciting person.

You need a good mentor and coach. I’ve said it before. Find someone who has had some success in the industry and emulate what they do. Have them teach you the right “Skill Set”, and that is all about what to do and what to say. They’ve already gone through a lot of hardships to get where they are today. Unless you’re in the mood to throw money away and waste time, by all means ignore this. However, if you want to succeed quickly and efficiently, you will be wise to seek out a mentor who will share their strategies to help you reach your goals.

It’s not your opportunity that sells, it’s you. Your product or opportunity is simply the icing on top of the cake. You can have the most life-changing product on the market, but if you are abrasive or incompetent, you are out of luck my friend. Invest in yourself before you invest in a bunch of products that deliver zero results. This means hooking up with the right mentor. Spending some bucks on books, CDs and listening in on webinars learning from the best is also an excellent way to enhance your skill set. Once you have the knowledge, you have the power!

Not all mentors are created equally! Please remember this!

Too many salespeople don’t practice what they want to say either in the camera or on the phone. They think they can simply wing it and be an effective marketer. These are the average people. The top producers practice how to close sales and definitely how to attract more people to them. Imagine if the president didn’t practice his speech. How loyal of a following do you think he would have if he had no conviction in his words simply because he didn’t prepare properly. Be part of the elite producers and practice.

The good news is that we can all get past this fear, procrastination, and anxiety that learning or doing something new brings. I think Nike has nailed it on the head. When faced with personal challenges, “just do it!”

Happy Marketing,

Secrets to Dealing with Criticism

Nobody likes to be criticised, but unfortunately, it is something that we are bound to receive one time or another. Some of us respond positively with nobility and detachment, yet many others get offended and keep it in until it leads to unnecessary suffering. Dealing with criticism is an important life skill and through it, we have the opportunity to learn and improve ourselves.

Having what I would like to call….a successful sports background, I got criticized all the time. Coaches would yell at me, all the time, in an effort to push me and get the most they could out of me. I guess early on in my sports background, I didn’t think I had the qualities to be a leader. But thanks to thier persistance I developed those leadership qualities that I am able to teach others to obtain. I see it in my children today when they are playing sports. They don’t like criticism, I mean who does? So what I want to share with you are some tips to better handle any criticism you may encounter.

Tip #1 – Respond to the suggestions, not the tone of the criticism

People may make valuable criticism as suggestions. However, their tone and manner of criticism may appear aggressive or confrontational, and that is what we respond to rather than to the suggestions they are giving right? You must learn to separate the criticism from the style of criticism. Detach your emotions from the useful suggestions that may lie within that aggressive critcism.

Tip #2 – Value criticism

The problem we have quite often is that we don’t value criticism because we only value praise or recognition. You’re happy when people speak kind words, but miserable when they criticize right? But because criticism can be constructive, you can only progress by inviting it rather than expecting praise which might be insincere or non flattering.

Tip #3 – Don’t take it personally

This is the major problem which occurs with regard to criticism. When people criticize us directly, we should feel they are not criticizing our real self but just a misunderstood aspect of ourselves or what we may be trying to get across in conversation.

Tip #4 – Ignore false criticism

Sometimes we are criticized for no reason or justification and this can be painful. In cases like this, ignore it. If we remain silent and detached then the criticism is given no energy. But if we somehow fight it, we are giving it more importance than it deserves. Maintain a dignity that others will come to respect.

Tip #5 – Don’t react immediately

Responding too quickly because of feelings of anger or bruised pride may leave us regretting later on. Wait patiently and you will be able to rationalize and reflect in a calmer way.

Tip #6 – Always SMILE

Smiling, even if it is a fake one, can help us to relax more. It creates a more positive vibe. And if smiling actually aggravates the other person, then at least you know you’ve got one over on them.

How to Gain MLM Success

So why do 95% of Network Marketers spend more money than they make, while others are generating a very good icome? The difference is that beginners sell, while the 5%’ers Market. Once I figured that out, I deserved to understand how to market like a professional.

Here are some tips that I’ll share with you about how the professional Network Marketers do it, and the way to become a success in MLM so you don’t become a statistic.

AND YES… NETWORK MARKETING or MLM IS NOW ONE OF THE TOP BUSINESS STRATAGIES PEOPLE LOOK FOR TO GENERATE ADDITIONAL INCOME FROM HOME.

Why you ask? Join my mailing list and you will obtain the education you deserve!

OK, now you ready for some Success Tips?

Tip #1

Successful Network Marketers utilize online automation tools to work for them twenty-four-seven, while they maintain their daily schedules. With the proper tools in place, a marketing professional will have a never-ending supply of prospects chasing after them.

Newbie’s fail to leverage the power of promoting and advertising. This may be because they haven’t been taught this or they aren’t working with the right people?

Tip #2

Successful Marketers also understand how to publicize to their target audience. They do not have a one way approach to marketing. Professionals use different marketing systems to reach their audience.

This is the complete opposite of the way that amateurs market. Generally Amateurs (I am not talking about you) promote a replicated company website that casts a large net to the general public, expecting to catch a few prospects.

Tip #3

Successful Marketers have a marketing funnel for their prospects, which allows them to only deal with highly qualified leads. The promoting funnel is another tool that saves the professional time, and increases their revenue.

Ask a beginner if they have a marketing funnel. Wha..what what marketing funnel!? Exactly.

Tip #4

Successful Networkers sell the solution to people’s issues, they don’t sell a company. They understand the psychology of people. They know that people are just interested in the benefits that come with what they are offering. They want their Problems solved, they do not want a company.

And here comes the beginner (I’m not talking about you) throwing up all over people with their verbal diarrhea about their company and their products. OMG! And then they wonder why it’s so hard to make any money in this thing.

Tip #5

Successful Network Marketers have a step by step system in place that prepares the new person to make money. They also coach and produce new independent leaders in their business.

Amateurs don’t have a simple system or a professional training forum for their new partners to plug into. Let’s not mention the adult day-care that they created (Remember I’m not talking about you)

Tip #6

Successful Network Marketers are continually training and improving themselves. They attend promotion trainings, and personal development meetings. They spend thousands a month on new ideas and concepts. Some may even turn their cars into a traveling varsity. Go to any Successful Network Marketers home and have a peek at their library. You sometimes will find tons of books about their craft and books about mindset.

Newbie’s customarily attend one event or training, and think that’s it. One event or training is not about to make them a success. This is a continuing process. This is not a 30 day, wait and see kind of industry. This industry deserves a long term commitment, not a ‘let me try my luck’ lottery ticket.

So those are my six tips. Be sure that the person you work with uses systems, practices what they preach, and that they have an interest in your success.

Recruiting in Network Marketing

There really are many ways to recruit or prospect in Network Marketing. What I want to share with you in the post, is the right way to do it. The professional way. That will allow you to develop a long lasting partnership in your business.

When I first started in my Network Marketing career, I would let anyone join me in my mission to become successful. Was I right, or was I wrong?

WRONG!

In Network Marketing there really are two factors that are important. The company you select to work with and the products or services they have for you to market. You can’t change either of them. You have selected a specific company for a reason, and that is the company you will be building your Network Marketing business with, right? Of course you can have multiple income streams, or in other words multiple companies to work with (I suggest a maximum of 2 or 3). You can also have maybe only one company and perhaps a marketing system that allows you to generate income to grow your primary business. These are called funded marketing systems, or funnel systems.

Actually I am working on a complete system with some top marketers, so watch for it. Second Income Coach (SIC) will be turning some serious heads when it comes to funded proposals or so called funnel systems.

Now there is another important point that most newcomers and even the veteran Network Marketer forgets. You get to decide who you want to work with. Stop trying to sign up everyone you talk to. Find out who you are, and what kind of culture you want to develop in your business and in the people you want to work with. Develop an interview process that steps people through the right hoops and out the end as a qualified partner.

So let me get you started on some top ways to recruit or prospect for MLM!

Should you lie and tell people how easy it is to build a downline? All they have to do is to get 3 people…right? Should you continue to chase down friends and family and harass them to join your business, when they are totally disinterested?

There are many methods and techniques for recruiting and prospecting, and some of them really turn me off. But regardless of what you see the amateur marketers do, there are better ways to recruit and it can actually be fun.

First, the primary thing that you should keep in mind is to find individuals who are actively seeking the answers to a problem that you or your product solves. These people are called your target market. For you to get them, you must focus on a certain area called a niche. After you find out what they want, you place yourself in front of them as an expert using either online or offline methods.

The second consideration is to prepare your offer to your target market. Why should they buy from you? Your offer must be attention-grabbing and have the “what’s in it for me” factor so they will be so interested, that they will want to know more of what you have to offer. This will give them the incentive to take action, which in turn increases the bottom line….your income!

Third, have an effective follow-up system so that you can educate them more about your business or product. The more information that they possess, the less objections you will have when it’s time to close them on the sale.

Fourth, give the prospect social proof. This can come in any form, but the bottom line is that you must have an action plan that will secure their well being. Nothing in the world is better than showing someone the HOW TO. This demonstrates that you are an expert and will lead them to success. It will also answer any fear that they may have
about falling through the cracks and being left alone to struggle.

These are some of the top ways to recruit for your Network Marketing business. Keep them in mind and apply them for a more successful recruitment process.

Consistently recruiting hungry prospects into your business can be challenging at times. Everyone deserves to follow a mentor who has left a clear success path. Join my newsletter for strategies and training classes, that will take your income to the next level.

Network Marketing, MLM, and Internet Marketing – Getting in First

So…Who makes all the money in Network Marketing, MLM, and Internet Marketing? The person who gets in first right? What you are about to watch just may shock you!

I couldn’t have summed it up better than this. Tim Sales shares the truth about getting in first and who makes all the money in the home based business industry.

You see…everyone does Network Marketing…but not everyone gets paid for it!

Think about this statement for a moment. Have you ever recommended something as simple as a good book, or movie to a friend or relative? And if you have I’m sure the cinema owner sent you a referral check for your friend’s entry fee and concession stand purchases right? What about a restaurant? Have you ever shared with someone your last
experience at a restaurant that was a good experience?

DUH….light bulb just went off right?

Network Marketing, MLM, Direct Sales, Internet Marketing or whatever you want to call it is something we have been doing all our lives. It’s about promoting and recommending something good to other people. The only difference is Network Marketing pays us. I have been getting paid from my efforts in Network Marketing for over 15 years. I see it all the time though…..time and time again! People get started and have a little success and think they have arrived…they made it….now they only have to sit back and cash those checks that will keep getting bigger and bigger right.

Wrong!

These are the people that go around saying it doesn’t work. They should be going around saying….I tried it for a couple months, put in 2.5 hrs of effort and it only paid me a couple hundred dollars. Hmmmmm, that would be almost one hundred dollars an hour. Who do you know makes that kind of money at a job? Instead they bad mouth the whole work at home industry. I mean look around…..are you an NBA or WNBA star? Are there guys and gals making it to the NBA or WNBA? What about the NHL? Do you play in the NHL? Are there guys still being drafted into the NHL yearly? What about the NFL…….? Are you getting it?

With Network Marketing, you don’t need to be a genetically perfect subject to make it to the top of this industry. You must however be willing work. Yes you will fail. As with all successful people there will be some challenges. But with this wonderful industry of building relationships and friendships, you can learn the skills to reduce so many of the challenges. It’s time to learn the “Right Way” to do this business. Join my mailing list and be on my first alert for my trainings.

Remember, as in life…..you do nothing…..you get nothing. PERIOD!

Where do you want to be in 5 years?

Getting up out of bed to rush off to work, stressed out and just plain sick and tired?

OR

Getting up with your children putting on one of your many favorite baseball caps then making them breakfast, and talking with them about how their day is going to be and what you’ll be doing with them on the weekend.

It’s really your choice. Anyone can have this lifestyle. You only need the skills and daily consistent and persistent effort, towards your goal.

You decide!

Happy Marketing,

Social Network Marketing Rules for Newbies

OK, be honest with yourself here. How often have you felt like a total dork when people start talking about “getting on” Social Network marketing sites like Facebook, Twitter, Direct Matches or in the old days MySpace?

I’ll have to admit, for the longest time, I myself never really “got it” and how to conduct yourself on those kinds of sites.

What I always saw on there people “friending” each other, using automation tools to add masses of friends, spamming the he** out of each others inboxes saying things like “This is a can’t miss opportunity” or “Go here to learn how to get 100,000 Twitter followers” or such nonsense like that.

But really, thats not the purpose of it all, nor the best use of it by any means.

Personally, I’m a pretty straight forward guy, ex corporate guy who saw things as kind of black and white. Do this, test and tweak it and either it works, or you improve on it.

Anyway, what you see here are 3 rules for “Us” Social Network Marketing Newbies to live by.

  • Rule #1 Spam unto others…..and people will hate you
  • Don’t go out and endlessly tweet or post on peoples walls or email them about how you are offering “mentorship” or ” a great system” or anything like that.

    Your main objective is to connect with others and interact with them, and let them know how cool you are. It’s all about “Relationshipping and Friendshipping”.

  • Rule #2 Give first, before you receive
  • Social Network Marketing is all about interaction and sharing. But how do you start off interacting with others? You can comment about their “stuff” or content that they promote. Better yet, go ahead and “re-tweet” other peoples information and help promote THEM first.

    This will help get you noticed as someone who is helping them get what they want and makes them much more likely to check out what you have.

  • Rule #3 Be a part of the conversation….because it’s going on right now
  • An old adage in marketing is to “get inside the customers head and talk to what they are thinking and what their problems are”.

    On places like Twitter or Facebook, people are ALWAYS talking about their problems and what is on their mind right.

    – “My kids are sick”
    – “I can’t get any leads for my business”
    – “I feel so tired”
    – “I hate pestering my family and friends in my business”

    And silly little things like that.

    If your business or product can help them alleviate any pain, or achieve any kind of pleasure that they are going on about, and you are present there with information to help them out (again, do not spam them), you have found yourself a very eager customer or business partner.

    Happy Marketing,
