Market This! Gaining Attention To Your Business

Gaining attention to your business, actually gaining the right attention is the plan.

You have spent your whole life either finding ways to get noticed yourself or watching others figure ways. What kind of attention do you draw as an individual and what sorts of attention do others draw to them that you have witnessed? Marilyn Monroe commanded attention but possibly not the type of attention you would like with your home business, possibly, and if so, study how she attracted this attention and attempt duplication. Harrison Ford gained his attention by perseverance and kept it with his excellent acting abilities. Babe Ruth was attraction all his own. Not only was he an incredible ball player, but he was also outspoken which drew even more attention. Snoopy was a Dolly Madison cakes figure head in the television commercials and his attraction was colorful and happy.

You can choose to market in any style, using multiple mediums, and inspiring different emotions to your potential customers. I have seen the use of negative sales tactics used entirely too much. The ones like “I can’t believe you haven’t joined this yet, Are You Stupid!” or “How serious a marketer are you really? Only serious marketers use ‘THIS'”. I have heard reports that these tactics actually work in the short term for one time sales, but are you chasing one time sales? If you are, then this may work for you. You might also use the highly rated “sexy” marketing techniques if your particular business can be portrayed in that slant. A health and wellness company could possibly as there are usually weight loss products included in the list of items for sale. An excellent example of a well known “sexy” commercial on television is the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” commercial

with Fabio. Butter isn’t inherently sexy, but the commercial uses the style it well. The loud, boisterous attraction also works more for the short term in general, but if you keep it loudly fresh, changing the advertising by tweaking it instead of complete changes, this may continue to show results for many months in a row. “Where’s The Beef” is one commercial that comes to mind here.

There is the sophistication edge of marketing that highlights prestige in ownership of a particular product or service. “The Elite Own a Lexus … Are You Elite?” or the very well known commercial for Obsession by Calvin Kline uses both sexy style and sophistication.

Happy cartoony marketing is also a receptive option for a marketing style for a diverse amount of business types. Caricatures, stick figures, and cartoons are just plain fun. They remind adults about their own children or remind them of being a child themselves provoking warm, carefree memories and emotions. Geico has this style nailed with their Gecko lizard.

The “Harrison Ford” style of marketing is my personal favorite and a definite must for the long term marketer. Perseverance with a great back up of delivering excellence. This is the answer for a main stream long term marketer mixed with sprinklings of happy, cartoony marketing, sophistication marketing, loud marketing, and sexy marketing (if it applies).

This perseverance marketing style is not a “flash in the pan” sparkly style by itself. Adding your personality to this style of marketing gives it the unique cleverness and difference that equates in attraction to your business itself. Set your style to work with your personality and your business. Think for yourself certainly. Letting others dictate what you market and how you market will portray

A business, not Your business. Listening to the media reports on the slumping markets and taking them to heart will also slump your business drive and change your perceptions. Focus your time on your success goals for your business and choose how you react to external forces hammering in that your marketing style is wrong if you believe it to be right. Letting others dictate for you does give you an easy out and allows those others to be blamed when failure happens, but better to be in the drivers seat and adjust your own steering.

Spammers Will Spam

To have an affect on any type of group, the change
involves a well thought out plan of action. Problems need solutions. But, where
to focus the energy and change?
Spammers will spam, cheaters will cheat, and the
majority of people in that group will end up getting scammed, slighted, or
knowing someone else from the group who has been. Do we as a group, team, or
organization focus our energy, time, and resources on the negative? Do we as a
unit attempt to stop these sorts of behaviors from happening? I say, focus the
groups attention on empowering the group to become aware of exactly how to
discern positivity and quietly dismiss any negativity.
Now, of course, negativity comes in many forms. The
blatant bashing of any business, group, or team member is quite obvious to
everyone and directly in your face and very seldom welcomed with open arms.
Especially, if the team member or business opportunity is not at all the vision
of the painted picture by the basher. But, there are other, more subtle forms of
negative energy that can infect an organization. If that team is working
together toward a common goal and a single member or a few are attempting to
drive the team in multiple directions, this action can break or slow
significantly the momentum of the teams force. Creating confusion is the first
step in losing focus and if your team loses their focus, their goals become
blurry, the get side-tracked, and the team has to then create this momentum yet
Visualize yourself at the bottom of a hill, not a
huge mountain, but a rolling hill in the Highlands of Scotland for instance. You
have a task to push a boulder the size of you up to the top of this hill and
back down the other side. The struggle is great at first, but as you near the
summit, you begin to see your team lending a hand, the boulder slides easily to
the top through the perseverance and team work. Once the momentum has begun,
getting this mass to the other side becomes effortless as you happily guide it
down the other side.
What if you encounter a patch of ruts and rocks,
tree roots or bushes that fall in your path up the first side? Will your task be
as easy with these obstacles? This is the result of group members that attempt
to pull other team members in another direction by taking away the team focus.
Figure a way to go around, over, under or through such things. As a team work
together to fill the ruts, relocate the branches, or chart a new path around the
tree roots. Becoming aware that you can never entirely rid any team of these
trials or challenges or the members that insist on presenting them will benefit
any organization immensely.

Focus on creating awareness. If you have chosen
your business, service, or product wisely and are excited about it, share it,
and network with team members that are collectively marketing the same.
Understand yourself first that there will be included in this group, some who
are not focused on the product, service, or business choices the team members
personally made. These members generally get involved in many opportunities,
never seeming to focus on one or two that work synergistically. If you have
found something brilliant, focus on the brilliance. When you make a choice,
first choose, then make that choice the correct or right one for you. As a team,
focus on what is right with the group, not what is wrong. Alert the right
thinkers in advance that they may be introduced to or happen upon multiple other
ways to produce income. Until we all focus on what we have, we will all end up
like the dog with his bone. A stray dog had found a meaty bone laying alongside
the road he traveled on. He was so excited about it and went to show all of his
friends. The dog held this bone in his mouth proudly strutting down the street.
The cat, bird, and turtle were all happy for him. When he came to the pond to
look for his friend fish, he bent his head down and saw his reflection. He
immediately was started because he saw another dog in the water and not his
friend fish and to top it all off, that dog had a bigger bone than he did! That
wasn't going to happen to dog, no, so he opened his mouth to acquire that other
In the end, the dog lost both bones, the real one
and the visualized one too. Keep this story in mind as you build your teams,
groups, businesses, or organizations and keep focus on what you do have, not
what you think someone else has.

Generic MLM- How To Copy And Paste

A great need is erupting in the generic MLM market. There is an torrent of technologically challenged people who are eager to get started marketing their outstanding business opportunities on the Internet.
Many have become so accustomed to using their home computers that they might have a hard time portraying the steps needed for others to get comfortable. I have found the new and amazing users to the Internet brilliant and refreshing. Here is a basic tool that will get the fresh users started on their journey.
This process is one of the very first to master. Once you are a professional at copy and paste tools, you are more than half way to building and creating any web site, blog, or even posting on a forum. These are ways that the successful Internet marketers advertise their generic mlm business.
There are 2 ways to copy and paste. First way is to click your right mouse and hold it as you drag the cursor over the words or phrases you want to copy. Or, if you want to copy the entire page, then you can right click the mouse anywhere on the page and the drop down menu will appear. Click with the left mouse button while the cursor is over the words "select all". This will highlight the whole page. Sometimes this will also include things that you do not want like the header of an email or other unwanted text, so be sure you look to see what you have highlighted with this method.
Practice with this page, I will space things so you can get the whole page by clicking the right mouse over what beginning letter you want to start with in the sentence and then holding it down as you drag the cursor over the length of the word.
It will turn blue as you drag the mouse. You can let go of the right mouse button after everything you want to copy is highlighted. Don' click the mouse again until the cursor is right on top of some of the highlighted things, then right click the mouse, a drop down menu is presented. Place your cursor arrow over the word copy and left click the word copy. It is now in your mouse and ready to be pasted. While you are practicing, leave the page that you copied from open until you paste in case you need to start over.
Now, go to the email or other page that you want to paste into. Place your cursor in the area you want to paste in, and right click your mouse, another drop down menu will appear. Place the arrow over the word paste and left click paste. Eureka! You have transferred a document, email, or other text or graphic from one place to another!
Second way to copy and paste is to highlight the area with your mouse, same as above, then while the highlight is still on, push the Ctrl key, which is under the shift key, and the c key at the same time. This will copy. To paste, click your cursor so the typing line shows on the page you are pasting to, and push the Ctrl and the v key at the same time. The copied items should appear like magic.
Practice with this page if you want, I have spaced things so you can take a paragraph, a sentence or the whole thing.
This works with text. Graphics and photos are very similar. Use the right click method while your cursor is directly over the graphic or picture you would like and the drop down menu will give you the option of save as, use this option. Make sure it is save "AS". Left click this and type a word or two in the directory box that comes up so you can remember what the picture is. Make sure (the computer usually does this for you) it says that it is saving your photo or image to your pictures file. This is the easiest way to retrieve them later in a file that is easy to find.
Taking some time to actually go through the process before it is essential and needed is a very bright idea. It will give you confidence when you need it most. Learning and being able to use the copy and paste tools quickly and effortlessly will be your goal. After a while, this will be one of the easiest steps for creating web pages, blog's, and even a simple post on a forum. This simple tool and skill will give you the confidence needed for the next steps in your on-line adventure.
Once you have this procedure mastered, you can move on to how to create a successful blog. Any generic MLM marketing strategy must first include these basic learning steps. These will put you well on your way to a successful future and will help you teach others your generic MLM marketing tips.

The Top 2 Grave Errors Of New Internet Marketers

The most important tool to an Internet marketer is his computer. Keeping your computer protected is the top priority of the freshly oriented to the Internet. Before you even get your computer keys warm, you must get some Internet security.
Unfortunately, there are problems in the way of viruses that can and will attack your computer just by browsing the Internet and getting acquainted with your system. Most new computer systems come standard with access to great Internet security programs. If your computer does not come equipped with such a program, my very first recommendation would be to contact the store where you purchased the computer. Find out which security system will work best with your particular set up and either have them install it for you or walk you through the set up process. This is the only way your computer will be kept in working order for you to venture out into the world of the Internet.
There are tutorials with every security system available today. Learning the system and knowing how to utilize this tool is the most important step to Internet success with your chosen generic MLM opportunity. Get a quick visual with this analogy. The duck hunters are waiting patiently for the first duck to get rushed and hurry off the lake. Bam, the first duck to rush out gets hit. Same scenario as the unprotected Internet user rushing off into the vast reaches of the Internet. When you find your selected business, the first thought is how do I market this? Make your first thought is my computer protected to venture forth.
Once you have a protected computer, the next most common mistake of the new Internet marketer is starting a promotional campaign before consulting the team that they are on and making a budget of your time and financial resources. We all get excited about our generic MLM choice and for a good reason. The truly great business systems offer a product or service like no other. They have unique pay plans and systems in place for members to benefit and make a residual income to finance their future. And, they have individuals who have made the system work for them. If that doesn't get you excited and off the couch, you are either doing very well or have not yet been introduced to the business for you.
Make out a time schedule of your daily commitments and see where the holes are. Where do you have a set hour or two every day to work at your chosen opportunity. I wanted to stress the word opportunity to get a clear understanding that this business decision was a choice and what you do with it is also a choice. It is an opportunity to get where you want to be in life. Contacting the members of your team is imperative, as they have been where you are now. They can guide you in the right direction. Learn from their mistakes so you do not have to remake them.
Getting a detailed list of what they did to build their business is key to your success. Plan your time as if you were punching a time clock. Take a sick day only if you are really sick. What would your weekly paycheck at the office look like if you consistently took time off? You actually may not have a check after a few weeks. This is the same. Stay connected to your team and ask questions about how to build your business. Read generic MLM information. Take some time from your busy day or night and enroll in generic MLM 101 by absorbing one marketing technique at a time. Find one that would interest you, purchase leads offered by your company to get visitors coming to your site, and then start learning your chosen new way to market. Put your time and effort into something that is working for others and it will work for you.
