Facebook for Arising Entrepreneurs  
ima Fri 7 Feb 2014 ima

Facebook is so popular that business owners can simply no longer consider it a site only suitable for game playing and socializing. Facebook has cemented its status on online platforms having being developed at the start of social media boom. The number of active users is nearing the billionth mark thus this social network can be said to serve about a seventh of the world’s population. Despite being developed as a social platform to connect family, friends and acquaintances, Facebook can really help in promoting your entrepreneurship/business. Facebook is a very powerful marketing tool. Several business owners have realized the potential of Facebook and are increasingly using it to advertise their businesses. Almost all popular brands are on Facebook. Do you want your business to join the ranks? The following Facebook tips will help you to create a business presence on Facebook, to increase exposure and reach prospects.
 
What is a Facebook Fan Page?
 
A Facebook fan page is a kind of profile that is created to promote brands, businesses services, and celebrities.
Facebook fan pages have overseers who update content and monitor the page .The overseers can access insights and analytics about their fan base.
 
What is Profile Page?
 
A profile page is a personal page that contains information about a Facebook user or individual. A profile page represents an individual by showing details such as hometown, profile picture, interests, family members, among other things.

What is Edge rank on Facebook?
It is a Facebook algorithm that determines the type of content that shows up on every client’s newsfeed. An edge is simply any piece of information that is posted on Facebook, for example, a like, share, photo, comment, tag, note, or anything else. An edge rank is used to measure the interaction between different pieces of information posted on Facebook. Therefore, if you share information that engages the users through sharing, liking or commenting or if you share information that creates a lot of interaction, you will have a higher edge rank and you will be put in a higher rank on your friends’ and fans’ news feeds. The edge rank algorithm is made up of weight, time and affinity.
Affinity is simply a score based on the number of tags, shares, comments, or likes your content receives. Weight is the average score given to different types of information. For example, photos have a lesser weight than videos.
The time perspective refers to the speed at which Facebook users interact or engage with your content. If users engage or interact very fast with your content, it implies that your content is up to date or is relevant.That is the reason why you, as an entrepreneur, need to make good content.

Due to edge rank, you should do your best to make significant, refreshing and focused content. This content will increase engagement and interaction with Facebook clients. There are many ways of enhancing your edge rank. They include posting content that is refreshing such as trivia, questions, games and contests, creating discussions or forums on your Facebook fan page, and encouraging your Facebook fans to take action by sharing or liking your posts.
You can also share significant information through links and consistently update the content on your Facebook fan page.

 

Facebook Tips for Your Business

 

Establish a Facebook Fan Page

The best way to establish presence on Facebook is by creating a business fan page. Additionally, you can create a personal profile page. A profile or fan page is an online manifestation of the business. How your profile looks like will influence the business image. On the business page, post information about the business and avoid personal information. On the other hand, you can post information about the business on your personal profile to attract friends to like the business page. Always provide relevant, detailed and accurate information that will attract more traffic and visitors. When you provide comprehensive information about your business, you gain trust from potential clients. Trust is a vital element in enhancing customer loyalty and developing long-term relationships with customers.

Post Engaging Content on a Regular Basis

Today’s business environment is competitive and aggressive. As such, it is important to post refreshing content on Facebook about your business and the industry you operate in. Users of social media look for content that is refreshing and engaging. By posting new content on a regular basis, you will actively engage your audience who will provide feedback about your brand. This engagement will make your business more credible thus improving your reputation. Additionally, your fans will share your information on their friends’ timelines and among their social communities. This will create a ripple effect that increases your exposure.

Use Ads, Promoted Posts and Sponsored Stories

Facebook advertising takes three forms- sponsored stories, promoted stories and regular advertisements. By using promoted posts, your business will not only create a new fan base but also reach and seek the attention of Facebook users who do not see your posts. A promoted post can be monitored using certain metrics and has the potential to reach a wider audience. Sponsored stories target your fans’ friends. The stories are built around the concept of word of mouth’ whereby a Facebook user is attracted to a page because some of his/her friends like the page.
Sponsored stories appear on the right side bar and in news feeds, and get preferred positioning. Facebook ads increase likes and drive website clicks if incorporated in your marketing strategy. An increase in likes is very beneficial since it will increase the interaction between Facebook users and your business hence form a strong relationship which may translate to sales conversions in future.

Why Use Facebook?

Facebook has several benefits that make it an appealing and ideal marketing tool. Facebook offers a two way communication channel that boosts interaction between the business as well as the customers. This interaction creates an effective communication platform and trust for customers to give their experiences about the business and for the business to gather feedback from customers. By using Facebook as a marketing tool, it is easier to leverage online communities to your company marketing practices. Social communities on Facebook are highly networked hence provide a way for entrepreneurs reaching a larger audience. The audience can extend to a national or worldwide scope because influence swells as fans increase. Facebook, just like other social media platforms, is dynamic and flexible. You can update or change the content on a regular basis. Such updates may be inspired by input from fans or customer feedback.

Facebook continues to be the leading social networking site. Many businesses are exploiting its potential as a powerful marketing tool to promote their brands and interact/engage with their customers. Both small and large businesses can use Facebook to keep their customers informed, increase their reach and develop brand identity. The Facebook tips provided above can hopefully help you achieve your business goals.

 
Very best:

Mobile marketing is the way of the future!

Mobile Marketing Trends in 2013

Website traffic coming from mobile devices increased 84% from Q4 2011 to Q4 2012, according to a report from Walker Sands.

1. Users tend to be within a much younger age range:

According to research from Forrester, 24- to 32-year-olds are most likely to own smartphones and use apps.

It is unrealistic to assume that everyone uses smartphones. However if you attend say a marketing event which is traditionally attended by a younger crowd and a speaker asks attendees to raise their hands if they have a smartphone. Usually, over 90% of the audience will raise their hands. With that said, however, not ALL marketers are within that age range and it is safe to assume that marketers lean heavily towards mobile usage.

2. Another interesting point is that although 93% of Americans own mobile phones, only 50% own smartphones.
This is still a sizeable number and more than likely more well to do part of the population.

It is absolutely essential that as a business owner, you understand your audience. If your audience tends to be a bit younger then it is all the more important that you factor in mobile behavior in your marketing program. For example hotels and attractions, if you do not have a mobile website and some mobile marketing strategy in place you are leaving huge money on the table.

3. Users are spending a great deal of time with their devices. More and more every day!

Just go to a restaurant and look around. Are people talking to each other? Or are they glued to their smartphones? Go to the airport? On a train? When a plane lands, everyone starts pulling out their smartphones! This is huge for a marketer who is running mobile campaigns and driving traffic to a fully responsive website!

A study done by Nielsen also shows a significant difference in time spent in mobile Web versus apps. Mobile Web grew 22% but mobile apps grew by 120%.

I think by now you are beginning to see the importance in securing the necessary budget to ensure that you reach mobile customers. Mobile marketing is extremely effective for local businesses. With location targeting extensions in Google Adwords and mobile specific campaigns, with push notifications having an open rate of 95% as opposed to email open rates of as low as 10% this is a no brainer! Add to that QR codes where businesses can incorporate mobile marketing and data base building with their other forms of offline marketing.

 

All the best towards your mobile success,

 

Melanie and Jann

Reasons to Start a Blog  
ima Thu 23 Jun 2011 ima
ima


Blogging is taking the online world by storm. It is the fastest rising new activity on the internet. It is allowing people to post their thoughts not only about personal things but also about the world at large.

Blogs, otherwise known as web logs, is both an online diary and a guestbook. Anyone can set a blog account or function on their website and then post entries on it. As part of the blogging function, it can either be set up as a private journal where people can just read what is posted or it can be set up in such a way where readers can get together and then place their own comments on your entry or to each other.

Blogs can be considered as opinion pieces on a particular topic or field. There are topic specific blogs where entries are limited to the topic set by the blogger. There is also an area specific blog which can be a resource on particular place. There are also blogs that are set up as a source for news on a highly specialized topic of field that would otherwise be ignored by the general media. Blogs can be used by internet marketers and business owners to promote a website or use the internet traffic generated by the blog to promote a product, service or an affiliate program (as a separate source of income).

Internet marketing professionals highly encourage website and business owners to start their own blogs because they acknowledge that it is a powerful tool for internet marketing.

Here are some reasons why starting a blog is a great business move:

Blogs allow you to stay in touch with the subscribers and clients. A blog allows you to keep communication lines open with so that you can always interact with subscribers or readers. It also helps nurture trust in you as an individual and owner of a business owner.

It’s a great way to get regular feedback. A blog’s feature that enables readers to post comments is a great way of getting feedback from your clients. Clients and readers can comment on what you have posted and these replies can help you determine what they need.

A blog is not labour intensive. You don’t need a knowledge of HTML or other web designing skills to make and post blogs. Most bloggers use  WYSIWYG HTML editors to help in the blogging function. These very easy to use and require very little technical skills, if at all.

A wonderful way to disseminate information. The biggest benefit of blogging is that you can post articles in the form of articles or reviews. These articles can help lift your reputation as an expert in your field.

It is a big help to your page ranking. Blogs are so rich in content that search engines can’t get enough of them. The fact that blogs also offer new content makes it attractive to search engines.

It is a great vehicle for advertising. Blogs can be a great venue for advertising because of the potential for the community to achieve a massive number of participants. It is also a cost effective advertising platform.

Article Marketing – How Articles Help Promote Your Home Business Web Site  
ima Tue 14 Jun 2011 ima
ima



Writing Articles is a great way to promote your home business web site and it’s very easy to do.

You can write articles that are related to your business and submit them to article directories. All it takes is take time to create the article and submit them. The pay off though can be an increase in website traffic and more sales opportunities.


The article process is as follows: You create the article, proof read and correct the article, and submit the article.

One way articles create traffic to your web site is from the reader. The reader can find your web site address from a link in your article resource box. You have to make sure the article resource box contains a link to your website.

Article marketing is also known to be a method of viral marketing. Meaning popularity of your article has the potential to grow. For example, webmasters from other sites can use your articles to use as content on their web site. In return for allowing the webmaster for using your article, your article will include the resource box you created containing a link back to your site.

As you create more articles and more sites keep using them, the total number of links to your site increases also. Search engines are place value on incoming links to your website. This determines the how relevant your web site is. The more relevant your site becomes the higher it may place in the search engine results.

Articles can also build trust between your business and potential customers. For example, with more people buying online, writing articles gives you an opportunity to present yourself as an expert on the product people are looking for.

I consider an article as a warm lead generator. You see, people are actually looking for the information you are writing about.

Article marketing is a great way of having your site on the search engines. When writing articles, you must understand that the propagation of the article takes time. While no marketing method is guaranteed, in time you may see desirable results from this method of marketing.

There are many advantages to marketing your home business on the internet by writing articles. The best part about article writing is that it doesn’t cost anything. It does take time to write the article correctly and submit them to your favorite article directories. When done correctly, the payoff will benefit your home business.


Your Success;

Article Marketing - A Newbies Guide To Article Marketing  
ima Tue 14 Jun 2011 ima
ima




Article Marketing is one of the most important tactics involved in internet marketing. The benefits of article marketing are many and it's not too difficult to make it a part of your internet marketing strategy. Read on to find out about things to take into account when attempting to incorporate article marketing into your overall online strategy.


Article marketing is one of the absolute basics of internet marketing. Having articles all over the internet is a marketing method which enables you to invest some time and effort right now and reap the benefits for years to come. This article will explore some of the advantages of article marketing and its subtleties in order to help internet marketers to use it to their best advantage.

Anyone who's been doing internet marketing for a while knows that writing articles is imperative to the success of one's online campaigns. Having articles in various article directories is a great way of providing links back to your site, thus building your site's popularity. When a page has many links back to it it helps to attain good positioning in the search engines. An article directory which has a high page rank is the best place to submit articles to as this helps to boost your page's rank.

Bear in mind that people take articles they enjoy and publish them in their ezines and on their websites, further providing you, the author, with more back links and publicity.

When you have articles of your own posted in article directories you can slowly establish your name as an expert in your niche. People will be more apt to trust your recommendations.

Although it may be tempting to write a bunch of articles in one day and submit them to a few directories, exercise caution with this. Why is that? Because Google is quite sensitive about a sudden surge in traffic to a link. Although we would all love a sudden surge in traffic, it may cause Google to de-index your site in order to look in to the reason for the sudden popularity of your site. It's better to submit articles every couple of days.

In the process of article marketing, don't submit an article that is already on your own website. It may be considered duplicate content and you don't want that! Google would consider the site which is higher ranking to be the originator of the article (the article directory) and your site's page rank may suffer.

Don't submit PLR articles without making changes!! There is so much PLR available today (free and otherwise) and it is very tempting to just grab it and use it. Don't do it. The purpose of these articles is to provide you with a basis for an article. Read it and rewrite it in your own words. Duplicate articles could be rejected by the article directories and the directories may just decide to ban your account.

Try to use good keywords in your article's title and also in the beginning of the first paragraph. Sprinkle your chosen keyword all over the article as well.

Most article directories allow you to use hyperlinks. For sophisticated and efficient article marketing try to use anchor text that relates to the keywords you are targeting. This will help you attain a better position in the SERP's (search engine result pages). If you are targeting the word "gardening tips" make sure to hyperlink to your website from each mention of the term in your article. This will help your gardening site be higher in the search results for the term "gardening tips".

Try to remember that people will be reading your article. Make it readable for them and don't just concentrate on the density of your keywords. If people don't enjoy reading the article, they won't bother reaching the end of it, which is where you will lead them to your site from the ever-important resource box!

In summary, article marketing is a very important, even critical, element of internet marketing. Every internet marketer should be making the effort to become proficient in article maarketing and learning how to write decent quality articles in as little time as possible. It will bring in terrific long term results.

Happy writing!

5 Tips to Choose the Best Home Business Opportunity.  
ima Mon 6 Jun 2011 ima
ima




If you want to make money on line, how do you know what the best home business opportunity is for you? Read on for five tips to help you choose.


With the rise of the Internet, there's never been a better time to launch a home business. Millions of people are choosing to work from home and make money on line, using only their computer and mouse. Millions more are involved in more traditional network marketing, scheduling parties and selling products to their friends, neighbors, and family. If you want to make money on line, how do you know what the best home business opportunity is for you? Read on for five tips to help you choose.

1. Know your options. There are tens of thousands of Internet-based home businesses, if not more. They range from multi level marketing opportunities to ecommerce to intellectual property sales. Your first step should be to find a website that has an overview of the best home business opportunities. This will save you countless hours scouring the Internet in order to find all of the choices available.

2. Know your strengths. Perhaps you're a great writer, and would enjoy - and profit - from taking public domain books and articles and crafting them into books and articles that you could sell on the Internet. Perhaps you're an experience network marketer and would do well selling products or online opportunities to others who want to break into the field of network marketing. When reviewing home business opportunities, narrow your field to those that play to your strengths.

3. Know your weaknesses. If you don't know the first thing about building websites, it doesn't make sense to choose a home business where you'll have to build a bunch of websites. Likewise, if you couldn't sell water to someone in the desert, don't go into direct sales. Even though you might find an incredible home business opportunity, if it doesn't dovetail with your talents, it's not for you. It's like any other job: there are jobs you're automatically qualified for, those that you can learn as you go, and others that are beyond your reach. Again, success lies in playing to your strengths.

4. Diversify your revenue streams. Despite what many opportunities claim, your best chances for success come when you bring in revenue from several sources. You may begin with one home business, but over the course of a few months, you should add several others. By doing this, if one revenue stream goes south in any given month, you'll always have backup sources of revenue.

5. Set goals and meet them. In order to be successful, you need to set goals. The goals you set should include revenue goals, marketing goals, and goals specific to the home businesses you're engaged in. Once you've set your goals, you need to make a plan to reach them. Then, you need to commit to doing whatever it takes to follow your plan.

Having a home business is incredibly rewarding. If you're a parent, you'll have more time to spend with your children. If you're retired, you'll have additional income. If you're a student, you can pay for your education. If you simply like the idea of giving up the hassles of a nine-to-five job, a home business will give you the freedom you desire. Just do your research, play to your strengths, diversify your revenue streams, and set and meet your goals, and you'll experience the satisfaction that being a successful home business owner can bring.

The Power of Postive thinking and How to Grow Rich!  
ima Sat 19 Mar 2011 ima
ima
You've most likely heard of the book, "Think And Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. Maybe you even read it. Did you apply what it teaches to your life?



To some - It sounds weird and kind of "new age". It's hard to get your head around "thinking a positive thought"
having anything to do with a desired outcome materializing.
But, that book was written long before the "fad" of "new age thinking" made the scene. Thousands of folks who read and applied the techniques in that book have experienced the power that positive thinking can create in their lives.

The truth be told -
action is what really creates change in one's life. What positive thinking does is cause action to be directed in the right direction.

The same as negative thinking stops action from happening or causes the wrong type of action to occur.


So - there really is no magic involved.
Positive thinking works because it creates the right action. But that is not always the case. Caution! Because of that "magical aspect" people mistakenly attribute to positive thinking - some folks do some real dumb things that they wouldn't normally do.

They seem to think that "positive thinking" will get them through anything. So they fail to do due diligence when making choices and rely solely on positive thinking.
There is due diligence you need to do when checking out and offer. It's why we urge you to take all the steps necessary to check things out thoroughly.

 

So - if you are looking for a
substantial online business opportunity - here are a few questions you need to ask yourself:

(1) How will I make money with this business opportunity?

(2) Do I need to get traffic to visit a site and if so - how will I get that traffic to visit?


(3) Will I be able to accomplish what needs to get done? Will there be professional support to help me?

There are a lot more questions you can ask. When you
click the link below - you'll reach a web page that can answer some of your questions ... but not all of them.

When starting an online business - it needs to make sense. Mere hype won't put the
"green in your jeans". We live in a busy world. STOP! Take a relaxing deep breath. Click the link below and promise yourself you'll spend all the time you need to find out everything you need to know - to make an informed intelligent decision.

On a mission to inspire and empower people to Live and Finish Rich  
ima Wed 16 Feb 2011 ima
ima
Many people who earn high incomes are not rich, the authors warn. Most people with high incomes fail to accumulate any lasting wealth.

They live hyperconsumer lifestyles, spending their money as fast as they earn it. In order to accumulate wealth, in order to become rich, one must not only earn a lot but also develop frugal habits. Most books focus on only one side of the wealth equation: spending less or earning more. It’s refreshing to read a book that makes it clear that both are required to succeed.

If you want to understand how millionaires think and how they achieve wealth, read "The Automatic Millionaire: A Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich" by David Bach. He explains the decisions millionaires make and how those decisions lead to building wealth. He asks millionaires to explain and describe their own thought process.

"The Automatic Millionaire" is built on years of research, on a body of statistics and case studies. It doesn’t make hollow promises. Instead, it profiles people who have already become millionaires. This is a subtle but important difference.


Bestselling financial advisor David Bach brings us his proven, revolutionary system that in one hour will make readers--even those not smart about money, not disciplined or  budget-minded--rich. The Automatic Millionaire shows readers how to change financial practices and financial lives, beginning with a powerful story of an average couple--he's a low-level manager, she's a teacher--whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, yet who somehow manages to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire 55 with more than $1 million in savings.

The incredible message Bach delivers is that the key to getting rich is by "automating" the way to wealth "by paying yourself first," using automatic funded retirement accounts and money market accounts to secure the future and pay for the present. In a short book destined for bestseller lists, The Automatic Millionaire introduces readers to a system that is powerfully  simple, and automatically effective, a life-changing system that delivers. Do it once, the rest is automatic.

Why Today's Economy Presents a Perfect Opportunity for You to Finish Rich®  
ima Wed 16 Feb 2011 ima
ima
David Bach has helped millions of people around the world take action to live and finish rich. He is one of the most popular and prolific financial authors of our time with nine consecutive national bestsellers, including two consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, Start Late, Finish Rich and The Automatic Millionaire.

I like this book. Many others do too. Bach explains the methods in extremely simple terms and includes several calls to action to encourage readers to start using the advice.

Condensing an already short book to a few bullets might be way oversimplifying things, but I’ll try anyway. Here is what I feel are the biggest points in the book:

1. Cutting out a few dollars a day in piddly expenses makes a  big difference.
2. Pay yourself first, then pay everyone else.
3. Buy a house and pay off the mortgage quickly.
4. Automate as much of the investment as you can.


The first point is Bach’s Latte Factor™ — the realization that a latte a day means hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars forfeited in retirement. If it’s not lattes, it’s something else.

The second point involves getting involved in the company retirement plan (for pretax contributions and the matching contributions), and an automatic payroll deduction or some other automated transfer to another investment account, like an IRA or another non-qualified account.

The third point prefers home ownership over renting, and paying down the mortgage faster than required by the minimum payment.

The last point, and probably the centerpiece of the book, relieves us of much of the brain power and discipline
required to carry out a systematic saving plan by setting up the withdrawals and deposits to happen automatically.

I’m leaving out a lot of sub-points, but it’s a very easy read.

We Believe in You Creating Your Own Success!  
ima Mon 14 Feb 2011 ima

We Believe That Anyone With Desire, Regardless of His or Her Circumstances, Can Create a Life of Their Dreams.  

       


Today´s  Economy Presents a Perfect Opportunity for You  to Start Your Own Homebusiness.
 

"Work at Home" entrepreneurs are faced with an alarming uphill battle against cut-throat competition, rising advertising costs, and an average customer/distributor retention rate that's dropped down to an average of less than 3 months.

Building a full-time income, or even a residual income through the networking marketing business model in the internet age is like trying to fill a leaking bucket - with 90% of distributions spending much more money than they'll ever make.


Tired of dealing with downline attrition and tiny commission checks, more and more home business owners are turning away from the traditional "MLM" business model, in favor of the increasingly popular G.P.T. structure.

How can we help YOU find and fulfill your passion?

Every great leader had a mentor....or mentors!

The iProSynergy Marketing Team formed a business partnership with one of the Internet's leading female earners, our dear friend and colleague, Lena :)



We formed
iProSynergy group after many months of intense masterminding, where we discussed all the new and evolving marketing methods.

We soon realised that we had some very fundamental common traits. We are all super determined people and we consistently take steps towards achieving our goals. We all have a hunger for new information and a desire to stay current with marketing trends.

But most of all, we recognise the power of a masterminding with other like-minded people in our industry.

The very best place to establish long lasting and rewarding connections and partnerships is at our marketing events. At these events, we meet and talk "shop" with all the experts in every aspect of our online marketing business.

It is at one such event (and many subsequent ones), that our partnership with Lena was established.

The absolute most common thread that we share among the four of us, is that we all desire as a team to offer our members the utmost in support.


Every great leader had a mentor....or mentors!

We as a team, commit to offering YOU the kind of support that is uncommon in the network marketing world.

If you become a part of our team and plug in to the training and support that we offer, and implement what we share...there can be no excuses!

We continue to remain connected with the leaders in our industry as we move forward, ensuring that our team has access to the latest developments in the industry.



MASTERMINDING...  IT'S POWERFUL!!!

Trends In Marketing;


Earning online is more than a trend. The entrepreneurial spirit which finds home based businesses,is the key hope for recovery in today's economy.If your present economic circumstances are less than favorable, you would be severely remiss to ignore this status.


An Entrepreneurship embodies many key personality traits that are the subject of many business courses today. Yet no one can precisely define what it means.Among some of its most notable characteristics are natural curiosity, initiative and drive.

When you consider entrepreneur ideas now in 2011, you actually mean, using the Internet for marketing in the best possible ways on a highly competitive platform.It demands a real innovative mind and complete self confidence.

Now that 2010 has come and gone, millions of home based entrepreneurs are breathing a great big sigh of relief. The years 2008 through 2010 has been difficult for businesses of all sizes due to customers necessarily tightening their wallets.


But 2011 offers a bright ray of sunshine in the form of hope for the small home business owners.Your products or services may be generated offline but your promotion must use social media and internet marketing strategies to develop the stream of income which motivated you to get started in the first place.

Finding ideas for a newhome business involves identifying something someone wants.If a business entrepreneur cannot identify a need in their audience, the next best thing is to find an idea that taps into a passion - a want.Combining a needed product with desired qualities is a sure-fire way to make money.Not simply needed, not only desired. Must-have products are a marketing dream, and this should be the pinnacle for any business entrepreneur.

In the present decade,the ideas 4 reservation of natural resources seems to be the most focused one.Another evergreen area is health and physical fitness,moreover the trends keep on changing,one can get variety of projects to work on.The need is to feel the need at the right time.

Online marketing seems to be what everyone wants to be doing today.Believe it or not there is a lot to learn when it comes to online marketing. Not only will you have to know how to create good content and put it up online, but you will also need to know how to market your content.

You may have to spend a good couple of months just learning the basics of internet marketing to get your business off the ground. But even after that, the learning never stops. You need to keep learning so that you can stay on top of your market, and keep up with new marketing tactics that may have come out, and so on.

The trend towards online marketing has seen enormous growth in the past few years. Social networking will still retain its popularity as one of the effective internet marketing techniques social networking will still retain its popularity as one of the effective internet marketing techniques The social media landscape has forever been changed by the success of sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Most major retailers maintain a presence on both of these social networking sites but in 2011 the mission must continue to define how these sites can work to increase sales revenue.

The popularity of the iPhone and subsequent smart phones has made it possible for companies to reach their customer base just about anywhere.The ads can be delivered directly to the customer no matter where he or she is located. The growth in this medium is expected to continue with mobile websites, email and apps becoming more prevalent as marketing tools.

There might be some interesting internet marketing trends for 2011, but that does not mean that the existing trends will be of no use anymore. In fact, the existing techniques will get even better and produce better results. Search engine optimization is definitely a popular trend and it will continue to grow with new heights.The power of video based marketing,announcing about your latest offers or information about your products and services, will increase in 2011.

As with any type of money-making endeavors, there are pros and cons as well as failures and successes. The important thing is to know the direction to take and get all the help you can get.

Working online is an excellent way to find jobs in this economic drought. When you are looking for work online, or setting up an online home based business, the first thing you'll want to do is gauge the skills,training,and experience you have and decide what job you'd be best suited for. If you are an excellent organizer and promoter, then becoming an affiliate and redirecting sales is a good choice. If you are good at writing, then going into content creation or web marketing might be the right area. If you like graphic design, then there always positions open for creating art and animation for websites. Programmers and other tech-savvy people will be able to easily find employment as web developers.
Finding work online is often a matter of figuring out what you're good at and then applying those skills.

Thus to become a successful entrepreneur and run a successful home based business in 2011, one has to meet the great challanges of this year making the best choices for financial freedom.

Ideas for homebased marketers 2011  
ima Sun 30 Jan 2011 ima
ima

Lets sum up our needs for the new year

If making extra money at home is on your mind right now and the pressure of a reduced income, increased taxes or the added threat of unemployment has forced you to turn to the internet in search of a Plan B, and if you are looking forward to starting a home based business,,give me a few minutes of your time and I'll reward you with a list of good entrepreneur ideas to digest and deliberate upon.

First, you will need to focus more on yourself than perhaps you have ever done, before taking one more step on your journey to becoming a famous entrepreneur and ahead of investing any more of your time and energy into your plan to find the best online business ideas.

Not everyone is suited to building their own home income opportunity, franchise, multi level marketing business or money making business. Many believe they have what it takes and fall into the trap of believing that their desire to leave their day job behind is equal to their desire for personal or a home based business success. The truth however is that running a business and making it successfully is no easy feat.

As for homebased business,with a little direction and a long term vision there is no better time to build your fortune from home than right now. This is the era of internet millionaires and professional online homebased businessowners, who are learning to master the internet and are generating incomes in excess of anything their parents or grandparents ever dreamed of.

This is also the age of competition. Things in 2011 would be changed from those of the past. In order to meet the latest challenges one is required to be eqquipped with much better and innovative strategies.One has to come up with the ideas that make people demand instead of the typical idea of fulfilling the needs.


The Internet has taken marketing business to a whole different level. Traditional marketing just isn't enough in 2011. If you have a business and you are thinking of making it big, then you should widen and weigh all the marketing options available these days. Many distinguished businesses around the world are opting for online marketing. A new year means new trends. Lets's look at some of the many Internet Marketing trends that are "hot" and popular today.


Search enigine optimization. The first and probably most popular trend is search engine optimization. In the New Year, internet web-sites with relevant contents and even credible links will rule the World Wide Web.

Paid search marketing. Even if it is 2011, human nature has not changed dramatically.People are still going to use search engines to look for a particular product or service. People are still going to click on pop-up ads to find solutions to their needs.

E-mail marketing is yet another trend. An important advice would be that you should invest in your e-mail list and in producing valuable substance and content in order to attract repeating potential customers. Therefore, spend more time paying attention to your current e-mail list. This is because many people change their primary e-mail address frequently. So,you should keep a close eye to when those customers change their e-mail addresses.

Sosial Marketing. Another unique trend in online marketing is social network marketing. Twitter or Facebook may not just be a fad.Social network marketing offers a profitable interaction. Social network marketing guarantees to attract many customers your way, well pending on how you maintain and play around with your own sosial sites of course. This is simply because social networks are the "in-thing" right now. Thus, you can reach out to a wider range of demographics in order to promote your home based business.

An entrepreneur really needs to work hard to stay in the fast stream of entrepreneurs. In order to manage that, he/she must be a real genius and able to understand the trends of the time.Or in simple words, he/she should have the traits of becoming the trend setters.

Wishing You Great Success,


Entrepreneural Success

Start Making Real Money Together With The Best Of Marketers  
ima Wed 3 Nov 2010 ima

Start Making Real Money In Co-operation with The best of Marketers.

 

The economy continues to make things difficult on individuals as the recession shows no sign of disappearing any time soon.  As a result, this has led to hundreds of thousands turning to the internet for work. 

 


There are countless programs and systems on the internet to choose from today.  Unfortunately, many are nothing more than a waste of your time and money.  The key is understanding there are legitimate opportunities out there as well that can help you build a better lifestyle.

 

Imagine being able to create your own home based business and work for yourself.  Rather than sitting around dreaming about a certain lifestyle, what if you could turn it into reality?  Instead of constantly falling further into debt and wondering how you will ever make it, think about having all of your bills paid with plenty of extra cash to save. 


You will get the system, the training needed, and outstanding support from this program.  Far too many programs these days sign you up and leave you with little to no guidance whatsoever.  This system is different as you will be given outstanding training tools to truly develop your knowledge and expertise.  In addition, the experts will be there waiting at your beckon call.

There is no reason you should have to deal with downline attrition or minute checks anymore.  Without a doubt you have to be willing to put in the hard work and long hours to succeed online thanks to the constant uphill battle.

 

However, it is more than possible when you have help from a system like the one within CarbonCopyPro.  This will help you learn how to use the concept of CCPRO to make serious money from home.

 

You will learn why residual income through network marketing may not be just what many think it is.  While residual income is the way you want to go, through network marketing is not necessarily the ideal route to take.  Find out how to make real residual income without worrying about your downline attrition or the competition.

 


  

Would you like additional information on how the income opportunity can work for you.


We invite you to visit our website for everything you need to connect safely and securely with cutting edge equipment.

 

 

While  competition is extremely stiff today, it is very much possible to become a successful internet marketer working from home.

About Me
Hello to you all here at IBS. My name is Jann K Thomassen and I'm living here on the windy and rainy north-west coast of Norway with my family. I am a master mariner and nautical lecturer by profession, although today enjoying my life as a full time marketer and entrepreneur. Have had my ups and downs in this industry and have of course picked up a few things along the road. My point with mentioning the ups and down; simply to help others succeed faster and hopefully without most of the downs. "Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning" - Benjamin Franklin
