Build Your Bridges and Build Your Business


Think of these business systems as bridges. Bridges that will provide a path for you to cross safely …to financial freedom. . . Let’s take a dentist. A dentist spends years in school learning to become a self-contained system. You, as the client, get a toothache. You go see your dentist. He fixes your tooth. You pay and go home. You’re happy and then tell all of your friends about your great dentist. In most cases, the dentist can do the entire job by himself. The problem is that if the dentist goes on vacation, so does his income. True business owners can go on vacation forever because they own a system, not a job. If the business owner is on vacation, the money still comes in.”

This quotes goes great with what I am currently living.  On Tuesday 5/29 I flew from San Francisco to Miami.  The flight from hell but that is another story.

What I want to lead up to is that even though I was in the air and totally disconnected from my world, my business continued to produce money and leads.

It is just a great feeling; to be able to travel whenever you feel like it and take your business with you.

So I’ll give you the blueprint for making this a reality.

It’s called the Smart Marketing Blueprint and you ought to print this off, and put it next to your computer. marketing strategies

Here it is:

  1. Give people what they want.
  2. Develop or sell products and services that appeal to your specific market.
  3. Make sure those items have the highest profits possible.
  4. Develop marketing systems that help you identify the right prospects and then communicate the right message to them.
  5. Reach and sell to those prospects fast and make the largest profits.
  6. Resell to your customers on a regular basis.
  7. Create sales messages that build strong bonds with your customers.
  8. Position yourself so you have unique selling position (even before you actually do!)
  9. Create offensive marketing strategies that let you control the selling process.
  10. Make specific offers to your customers on an ongoing basis.

Let’s take a closer look.

Number one is to give people what they want. Sounds easy enough, but I have seen marketers in love with a certain product that has lousy conversions but nonetheless they want to sell it and can’t understand why sales are lousy.marketing strategies

Number Two on our list is to develop products and services that are appealing to a specific market. Again, it comes back to knowing and having an intimate understanding of your marketplace.  Most companies are doing “me too” kinds of things – they’re all following the follower. The more you’re aware of that, the more you’ll see it. There are exceptions, but those are the guys who are able to see what their clients really want. You need to become one of them to make the biggest profits.

Number Three is making sure those items have the largest profit margin possible. This is one of the main secrets behind the success of many affiliates.

Number Four is to develop marketing systems that identify the right prospects and communicate the right messages to them. A marketing system is simply a process that automatically attracts and resells customers again and again for you.

Number Five is that you’ve got strive to reach, and sell, to those people fast enough to make the largest profit you possibly can. Again, most businesses don’t have any real strategy for this part.

Ok, I have given 5 of the 10 I have on my list and you should jot down as well.

I will probably continue this post tomorrow unless Miami beach gets in the way.

The Power of Positive Thinking and Hard Work Go Hand In Hand

“People don’t understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that’s been what has gotten me this far.”

                                                                             ~ Tiger Woods

Going against the “something for nothing” crowd, real success does actually require a lot of hard work. In my case, what I have achieved is far more due to working daily, than to intelligence, talent, natural ability, etc.

That doesn’t mean mean I don’t like my work – most top achieving entrepreneurs love their work – but it is usually hard work nonetheless.

Unfortunately, there’s this big movement being taught in success books that all you have to do is think positive thoughts and everything will come to you automatically. Wealth. Happiness. Sunshine. And Rainbows. Everything good in life.  making money online

Being generally optimistic is important.

In addition to having a positive attitude, you have got to work at it.  People will tell you to think positive and you’ll get positive results. This is true to a certain degree.  I most definately employ this idea in my work, But they forget to mention that along with a positive attitude you also need a solid work ethic.

It’s easy to understand why the “easy” message sells much better than the “work hard” one. Who doesn’t want to take the easiest path? We all do.

Henry David Thoreau once said,The cost of anything is measured by the amount of life you’re willing to exchange for it.”

Bottom line, if you want to be successful in your business, you have got to work at it. making money online

The people who have paid the largest price, in terms of the sacrifice, the commitment, the dedication, the hours they’ve put into their enterprises… those entrepreneurs are the people who are likely to ultimately experience the success they are seeking.

There’s a fascinating story about Bill Gates that I think illustrates this point.

He went to a Mercedes dealer to pick up a new Mercedes and one of the first things he told them was, “I want you to take the radio out of it.”

Puzzled as to why Bill Gates would want to remove the radio from his brand new car, they asked him why. He had them remove the radio simply because he didn’t want any distractions. While he would drive to and from his office, he wanted to stay focused on his work.

Now that is an extreme example, but it represents a man who was totally into his vision. He didn’t want anything to get in the way of his focus on his business goals.

Look, if you really want to make a lot of money, you can’t just have a positive attitude.

You’ll have to focus on and work hard in your business, just like Bill Gates. making money online

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln once put it, “Good things come to those who wait, but only what’s left over from those who hustle.”

It’s true. So get out there and hustle to make your business everything you want it to be.

Print These Off and Pin Them Up – The Only 3 Ways To Build Your Business

“Sustaining a successful business is a hell of a lot of work, and staying hungry is half the battle.”

~ Wendy Tan White

We Should keep one thing in mind and ponder it often. That business, despite us entrepreneurs doing everything we can to overcomplicate it, is actually quite simple.

If you can manage to get the correct ducks in a row, you will make a lot of money.

Ponder this, there’s really just 3 basic ways to build your business:

Get more first-time customers to find you.
Get your current customers to come back and spend more money.
Get your customers to spend more money each time they buy.
Nothing more to think about. Those are the 3 basic ways.

Get more new customers.

Do more business with your existing customers. And/or increase your average ticket size.

Whenever you get confused, go back to the basics.

Those 3 things are worth printing off in big letters, and pinning up in your office as a constant reminder.    build your business

We are all guilty of this, as a business owner we get stuck on the first method, constantly chasing after new customers, but never thinking about the other 2 methods of increasing sales.

Unfortunately, getting new customers is like pedaling a bike up a steep hill on a hot day. It’s tough, sweaty work, and you may have to get off the bicycle and walk it up the hill for a while. You have to do it, but it can be a real chore.

On the other hand, reselling to existing customers is like coasting down the opposite slope of that hill.

To be honest many business people including me, fail to realize that all the profits are in the last two business-building methods.

They’re not building long-term relationships with customers, and they’re certainly not making those people enough additional offers. Because of all that, they’re losing money that could be theirs. build your business

Food for thought. I hope you enjoyed reading my ideas about business.
