The Secret to Your Success?

The goal here is not to make things complicated, but keep them simple. KISS.

There are lots of secrets to your success but I will highlight only 3.

Be very clear and honest about your value. If you aren't clear yourself you will never be able to demonstrate this to potential clients. When you know your worth, when you know your value you will feel much more confident and, the best news? You will be able to charge more because you know you are worth it and you know you can genuinely help your clients get the results they are looking for.

How is your presence? Are you visible enough? Keep in mind there are two kinds of visibility. The first is on-line. If you have your own business and you're not fiercely on-line, you are missing out on a lot of potential business. All those coaches making multiple six figures and 7 figures have a strong on-line presence.

Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter cannot be ignored. Facebook and LinkedIn can fit almost any market or audience. We have checked our statistics and our team knows that our audiences of 'women after 50' are not as drawn to Twitter as many other groups are. You need to know these things. Where does your target market hang out on-line?

The second type of visibility is face-to-face. For obvious reasons this is the best by far. I heard a formula that to get a potential client to have a conversation with you or purchase a product the stats are 16 when done remotely/internet and 84 local face-to-face. Conferences help with this also, with the face-to-face. But unless you attend a great many conferences, it can be hit and miss.

You must invest in yourself and your business. At the beginning you may think you can do everything by yourself. You will figure it out soon enough that this is not going to serve you well.

I tried it, you will try it, I can guarantee you it won't work. I can write up this ezine just fine but then my VA (Virtual Assistant) formats it and sends it to you. I have no desire to learn how to do that. And even if I did know how to do that, it would not be the best use of my time.

You cannot build your successful and money making business by yourself. You cannot go it alone. Don't be a Lone Ranger!

Probably the best investment you can make for yourself and your business is to hire a coach. Choose someone who has the type of business you would like and who is successful in it. Don't hire someone who 'used' to have a business but has retired. I say this only because I knew someone who did this. Things change too quickly, not just on the internet but what is trending now and working well now. If someone doesn't have their fingers in the day to day goings on in the business world, they will not be able to help you as much as you deserve.

Choose someone you know, like and trust. Chose someone who you admire and respect. Remember, Jim Rohn (Motivational Speaker) says you are the 'average of the 5 people you spend the most time with'.

Action Step: If you are not clear on your value and how much you have to offer someone, you need to start here. Be honest to yourself about how you are present. Are you being seen? Are you being relevant? Do people look at you as a 'safe' person?

Before you do that, I want to encourage you to read this complete review so you can be positioned to make a more educated decision about the company. Before proceeding, I want to disclose that I'm not an Initials Inc distributor so you can be sure that you're getting a truly unbiased perspective of the company.

Who Is Initials Inc And What Do They Sell?

First things first, if you're thinking about joining Initials Inc, it's important to get some background information on the company itself. Founded in 2005 by sisters, Britney C. Vickery & Ivy C. Hall, this company is a Personalization Business that offers an extensive product line of garment bags, backpacks, purses, handbags, kitchen products, towels, water bottles, accessories and organizers.

This is just a sample of their product line which offers a wide variety of fun products and gifts for anyone that you can think of. What makes this company unique is their ability to personalize each item in their catalog to be exclusively unique to the customers particular taste and preference.

How Do You Make Money With Initials Inc?

The cost to begin as an Initials Inc Creative Partner will be $139 for your Starter Kit. This will provide you with 11 products with a value of over $400. As a partner, you will qualify to receive a 25% base commission for every product you sell. In addition, you will earn recruiting bonuses, personal sales bonuses and promotional bonuses as you increase your personal sales volume and recruit new Creative Partners into your organization.

Initials Inc- Creative Partner Training & Hostess Rewards

As a Creative Partner, you will be trained to achieve sales and recruit new team members into your organization through the traditional method of Home Parties. You're going to contact all of your friends, family, acquaintances, neighbors and your co-workers to schedule a party in their homes. You will also want the hostess to invite as many guest as possible, to ensure a successful party.

During the party, you will showcase and perform demonstrations of many of the products from your Starter Kit, in addition to, other products that you have purchased.

To incentivize your friends and family for hosting the parties, Initials Inc, has put a Hostess Rewards Program in place. This program will reward your hostess with discounted merchandise and even free products based on the amount of sales you generate in their home. For example,

Is Initials Inc A Good Business Opportunity or A Complete Waste of Time?

In closing, the company looks credible and the business opportunity looks solid. The products look to be of high quality and they are very marketable. While having a good company, good products and a lucrative compensation plan are obviously pluses, those things will not guarantee your success. Ultimately, your success will depend on your ability to sponsor new people into your business.

My advice is to use Attraction Marketing so you can generate leads online for your Initials Inc business. If you can do that, you can very well be on your way to building a prosperous business.

5 Tips for Growing Your Business

Starting a business is tough.. no exaggeration. To start and run a business is both nerve-racking, petrifying.. and a dozen other emotions. It doesn't matter if you are drafting the initial business plan, just opened the doors, or been around for awhile. Planning will alleviate much of the risk, but not all. You can't control everything in life, nor in business.

Want to grow your company? Here are five guidelines to help you do that. Many accomplished business owners wished that someone had told them this at the beginning.. and look at us giving them away to you.

Guidelines to Grow Your Business

1. Realize that you can't do it all

Being your own boss is part of the appeal to start a business. The owner of a small business will have to be contented to wear many hats - that of a sales assistant, bookkeeper, marketing director. However, this does not require that he or she should do it all on his or her own. Now is a good time to consider outsourcing some pieces of your business to a virtual assistant and a bookkeeper.

You will certainly be able to do it alone for a short time and even manage to flourish, but in order for the business to develop, it can't go on like that forever. It is crucial to know when to find capable people with the same vision. You can only do so much and if you want the business to thrive, you will have to accept that you need help.

It should not be necessary to relinquish your new found freedom or your control to get help, but you are only one individual.

2. Don't spread your doubts

Confidence, drive and passion are needed when launching and running a prosperous business. It is, however, normal for doubts about this new undertaking to creep up on you, but essential to know to whom and where to voice these uncertainties.

Don't tell influential people outside the company like a capitalist that might invest in your venture or the local credit union's manager. They will only finance someone who is confident about his or her business. So keep your game face on when you approach investors for much needed money. In the same way the employees must be sure that they can believe in you. Don't when times get tough, don't express your emotions and doubts openly for all to hear.

It would be lying to say that not everyone have fears and uncertainties. A business owner, however, should arouse confidence in his or her employees. So think about how you act when you are with them, especially when things aren't happening like you would like it to.

3. Work towards that business you would want

There's an expression that says that you should fake it until you make it. You should adopt this principle, particularly in the beginning of a business venture.

Don't intentionally deceive clients about the business' scope or what services you can offer them. New clients should be instilled with confidence in your business, until your reputation has been established. So, run the business as if it is already the business you would want, even if it is not there yet.

Apply this concept to all aspects of your business venture - from the way potential clients are greeted to the language used on advertising materials and the company website. If a confident air is projected when new customers are dealt with, a first impression is made that will offset the small size or lack of experience.

It is not necessary to approach all dealings as the president of a worldwide organization, but think big when you want to grow your business. Make sure any material or employee who have direct contact with your clients, represent your business the way you would want to.

4. Deal with the negative answer of no

It is only you who can decide to open your own business, an adventure that you yourself decide to go on. Regrettably, to make your dream come true, you'll have to involve other people whose opinions will have to be heard about the way things happen.

Starting out as the owner of a business you will often hear "no." Potential customers and clients will not be interested, your idea will be passed on by investors, and your banks loan applications will be turned down. Don't feel dejected because rejection is essentially fabulous.

How so? For the reason that every time you hear "no," you must choose to appreciate it as a break. Maybe your bank loan application was turned down, not because of your idea but because of a problem with the business plan. Perhaps a non-interested client could force you into developing your pitch or making your offered services more convincing.

A business owner should look at rejection as inevitable, but it is your choice how to react to it.

5. The business bank account isn't for your personal use

This is a big one, so read it again. And again. Once your business is going strong, the temptation will be there to use your business account for personal use, to borrow money from the business or treat yourself with lavish payments, but don't do it, especially in the beginning.

Even a successful business will admit that to grow cost money. Every time you take from the business' money, the chances of growth diminish. You should be sure to adequately compensate yourself for the work you do, but your salary must be modest and reinvesting in the business must be your main concern.

To grow a business will cost money because everything needed for growth like equipment, talent and space costs money. Therefore the smaller amount you put back, the slower the growth. The more money put back, the faster the operation can be expanded and the more profits can be made.

Stock Vectors Tips


Choosing images for your posters or your flash videos shouldn't at all be difficult. That's because vector graphic are by far, the easiest to manipulate and the most widely available, thanks to stock vectors, which can be downloaded online. Even a bit of knowledge you have about Photoshop can tell you that working with bitmap are incredibly difficult, especially when it comes to resizing and rotating. Changing a bitmap images size can lead you with pixilated, cheap-looking images and designers often rant about how these images have poor resolution. A bitmap is composed of squares that are meshed together to create an image so when these images are reduced in size, some squares are eliminated and thus, lowering the images resolution. When expanded on the other hand, the image can appear blocky, especially if the image doesn't have a high resolution. Detail is not one of the fortes of bitmap images, so free vectors images are created in order to appease designers of their yearning for professional and sleek looking images.

Vector images, on the other hand, are a rich collection of individual objects as opposed to picture elements. If you've never seen a vector image before, try searching for stock vectors online. The internet has various designs and forms of stock vectors available for use. These kinds of images are a lot better because its elements are made to be scalable. You can expand, shrink or rotate a vector image all you want but its quality will always stay the same. This particular trait of stock vectors allows it to rotate, scale, and animate smoothly in flash without jumping pixels.

One of the most appalling characteristic of bitmap images is that they are limited to being square or rectangular in shape. If you put a bitmap image on top of another bitmap image, you'll see a square covering parts of the image underneath. Bitmap images are damned to do this because they are composed entirely of square pixels. Vector images, on the other hand, are very ideal for creating hi-res graphics, maps, and even company logos.

If you have no idea how to create vector images, you can check out the internet for stock vectors. Vectors come in various designs available for download for all your advertisement or flash-video needs. Most websites that offer vectors are free, but some images are available rather cheaply. If you've got a business project, a presentation, a school report, or if you're just printing out fliers, then grab an image from the stock vectors available online.

Many different variables will affect the cost your next homeowners insurance policy. The following is a list of items to remember when shopping for home insurance.

Insurance companies pay very close attention to the electrical system within your home, as they are a leading cause of home fires.

The Best Of News Aggregator 2014



Here are other options on the webfor RSS feeds that are integrated within social networking sites. Facebook, for example, has it's own version of that that with a news page that puts in all kinds of information on what people in your circle of friends are doing online. This can be exploited to post links to your site, talk about your latest venture, and generally hog the limelight. So, while the majority of people are referring to RSS feeds when they talk about news feeds, there are other ways that term is used in different social networking sites.


Educate
As we discussed earlier, the two ways of using RSS feeds is to get subscribers or to use them to provide fresh content to your site. The first way involves an action that has to be taken by the person visiting your site. It isn't something automatic, so that you have encourage people visiting your site to subscribe. Since the mechanics of RSS feeds are still not that well known by the average Internet user, you have to educate your visitors to how to get the latest content using your RSS feeds. The truth is that they may actually be using a news outlet like Yahoo! but not even realize that the content is coming through an RSS feed. So, to get subscribers you must first educate them to what's available.



Create Buttons
You don't have to get too technical about it, but you do want to give them a brief overview of why they want to become a subscriber to your RSS feed. They can get updates more quickly and be notified of when new content is up on the site. They can even set up email to receive it in a format that is easy for them to access. However, you have to educate them on how to do that, otherwise, they will take the path of least resistance, which is to ignore your RSS feed.


There are a number of ways to make it easy for them to sign up. You can provide buttons for numerous news reader outlets, like Yahoo! Or Bloglines. You will have to get the URL for your news feed and use that to create a button that allows people who are familiar with these larger online news feeds to subscribe to your content. For that you have to have the RSS feed module installed and have it available. It will typically look like this: [http://yoursitename/feed] . Some places like Wordpress automatically install RSS feeds and you can use the address provided to create those subscriber buttons.
Offer A Targetedbie With Your Feed

Promote It To Various Outlets
If you're still having problems getting subscribers, try offering a small targetedbie to get them to sign up. It can be a report of some fantastic tips to save or make money, or it can be a targeted video download. Try to make it something you can deliver instantaneously over the web with autoresponders. That makes this feature very easy. Of course, realize that they may sign up and get your product and leave easily too. So, you want to continue to provide content that will keep them interested and subscribed.
Package Your Own RSS feed

If you have various websites and content and you want to get the word out fast with minimal duplication, you want to package your own RSS feed and promote that with other website owners. You will want to split up your content by categories that others may want to subscribe to. You wouldn't put any recipes on a site you have along with how to get hired on another site, even if they are both blog posts. You have to be clear that whatever you package in the RSS feed package is one topic or focal point of interest for specific news outlets. A way to do that is to separate the categories into feeds for the mainstream media, a feed for your customers, some for potential customers, and even your competition. Or, you can split up the feeds into discrete industries that you can market to specific news outlets.

 Featured Aggregators
After you've packaged your own feed, you want to make sure it is available for others to use. Whether that is by agreement to purchase the feed or whether you merely post it on website newsreaders, it's up to you. You can submit your feeds to search engines and directories, just like they were their own pages. They are actually web pages, but they are in XML format which needs the newsreader to decipher and read. Once you're syndicated on a variety of other sites, traffic will pour in non-stop as long as you keep providing content.


My.Yahoo.com
To view the RSS feeds, people use aggregators. Some are programs you add to your browser or install on your desktop. Others are websites that allow you to set up an account and use them to read news feeds. Some you can even integrate into you email to get RSS feeds through email format. It doesn't matter what you use, but here are a few that you can find online that you can check out. 

Newsgator.com
This is a great way to see how easy it is to use an RSS reader through a website. Many people set up a page here and have no clue they are actually using an RSS reader because it's not that technical. You just search for categories of news that area available as RSS feeds and then choose to see them. They put in all the headlines in the various choices you made and you can easily check multiple sites and headlines in the category that you want.

News Collector
This is  the news aggregator website like google news. We collect headlines from different news websites in one place and give pure information to our users.
what different between news-collector.com and other servises? We collect national, world and local news and other sites collect only national and world news.
