What I will do is not to send traffic to a sales page, but to an opt-in page (like the one in resource box). The reason is because I want to build a subscribers list. If I build a list, I can leverage the traffic my site gets and turn that traffic into repeat traffic. Which means I can turn 100 visitors into 300 or even 500 repeat visits, all because of the email marketing system I have.
Prospecting strangers isn’t worth the hassle (time, energy, sweat, blood, tears and not to mention the headaches). Prospecting these types of people for your business Will take a lot out of you. (Just thinking about it, makes me cringe). Facing rejection from the wrong kinds of people is one of the main “killers” for many new home business owners. Don’t let it happen to you, or anyone in your organization. Don’t prospect strangers.
First of all, a cheat sheet is nothing more than that.a list of tasks for a particular project. The list in itself is not detailed. It’s just a list. But each item on the list should be described in such a manner as to leave no doubt in your mind what has to be done. For each person, that’s going to be different. For example, for one of my tasks, my cheat sheet says “Write articles for Ezine articles.” Now, I know what that means. I don’t have to have a big long explanation as to what the involves. But some people might have it broken down further into, “Write articles on acne, warts, moles and cold sores.” That way they know exactly what articles they’re writing.
This is going to be a “well duh” moment when you read this. Ready? The hot button is Hope! Hope is why people join business opportunities, why they seek them out, and why they’ll sit through your hour long presentation displaying your soaps, lotions, and super powerful vitamins. It’s all because of hope. What are they hoping for? It’s shouldn’t be too hard to figure out because it’s the same stuff you’re hoping for. They’re hoping for a better life. They’re hoping to stop the stress of where the money for the next bill is going to come from. Or worse yet (and more true these days), where the money for the big leaning pile of bills on the counter is going to come from.
The truth is that many people want the instant gratification. Most of the places that advertise get rich quick go back to that need. Instead the merit should be on how much action you are willing to take. Are you willing to put more effort then you would in a k per year job? Most people think they have to put in that amount of effort to make the 0k per year or even a million per year.
If you’ve decided to start a home based business to obtain financial freedom to eventually pursue these dreams of yours, well good for you. You are now on the right path to really put your under utilized capabilities to work and channel all your energies without having someone lurking at your back. Striking out on your own is no easy task though. You must be prepared and willing to make sacrifices. But it will be so worth it! .
We may have missed the WalMart and Microsoft “boats”, but it’s not too late for our “ship” to come in through another business opportunity if we know how to recognize it when we see it!
