Common Business Mistakes

Common business mistakes

We are talking Home based online businesses here. There are many common business mistakes that people make here are a few key ones.

Many people love the idea of working from home running their own home-based business. While it’s a growing field and very lucrative, there are certain things you need to watch out for as you get started. Once you get the idea it’s easy to get carried away and rush into it.

When I started my first online business 10 years ago, I thought I just had to open a shop on a big site and that was it. You know how it goes, display my goods and the sales would pour in. Boy was I mistaken!

Decisions

First off

What are you going to sell? Actual goods that you will buy and sell on or goods you make yourself which is crafting. If crafting it is what you are making and selling.Decisions Common Business Mistakes

Dropshipping is another option. You display a company’s goods of your choice on your website, when a customer orders and pays, you then send that order to the company. They package and post it.

There is affiliate marketing which is a massively growing market.

Buying and selling domains.

Creating websites and managing them for clients …… and the list goes on.

Take your time

Just don’t get too hasty when selecting a product, service, or company to sign up with. You want to make sure you investigate thoroughly and have chosen a good option for you to pursue. Research is very important for any venture.

Once you have decided on a direction you need to decide whether you will hire people to set things up or do it yourself. If doing it yourself do you need training? Is it worth investing in yourself and paying for training which will pay dividends in the future and save on costs in the long run.

Just because you have selected the right company or product doesn’t seal the deal. You’re going to want to in order to make your business a reality. What is it going to take to get things off of the ground. What does your competition look like? Again, it’s research and more research.

Investing

First of all, will be the time investment required to get your business off the ground and make it grow. Businesses need investment of time and moneyHow much time you invest will be the difference in how quickly it grows and how soon it makes money.

You will also have to invest some money into your business opportunity, but you have to operate off of a budget. Have you worked out the costs. Website hosting, domain name buying, maybe a better laptop. If selling goods there will be packaging costs, besides the buying or making costs. A printer for invoices and address labels, with that comes the need for ink, paper, labels etc.

Many people get started and stake too much money from the beginning. This is a mistake.

Still, other people get their business going and decide that they don’t want to invest money when it comes time. This is also a mistake, as it could be what’s holding them back from getting things really going.

It’s great when things get going, but if you don’t have a record of it, you’re going to regret it. All outgoings and incomings must be noted and logged. You must make sure you keep well organised records, both for business purposes and tax purposes. This is extremely important.

Finances

Another common mistake that many people make is not separating their personal finances from your business finances. This is quite a major mistake as you could either end up underpaying or overpaying on tax. Finance Neither is good especially if they decide to randomly check YOUIR business. This has to be done correctly from the start or you’re going to have everything confused and disorganised.

Some people are soft when they start out, and they don’t operate with proper business sense. They are so anxious to get started with customers that guess what? They aren’t charging enough for their products and services. This is quite common especially in the crafting community. By under charging you are doing a disservice to yourself and other craft businesses trying to make a living.

It’s wrong to undercharge for anything as you will struggle to make money and when you realise this and try to put up the prices the customers you have will go elsewhere. You need to work out  proper price and stick with it.

Another mistake is continually having sales. Why? Because your customers that like your products will just wait for the next sale, knowing that once things are slow you will have a sale. How do I know? I made that mistake. Then when I complained on a forum that I only sold things when having a sale, another crafter said, it’s simple,  stop having sales! So I did and put up my prices which were too low and it went upwards from there.

Website

It’s that old favourite again, research. Look at the options, look at what they charge and what you get for your money.Your Website is Important. Build an amazing showcase!

Check around with other website owners. What is the support like, do they respond quickly? Do they actually fix problems? Are they easy to contact? Is the site easy to  use and set up with what you want? So much to know!

Many people fail to employ search engine optimization strategies and techniques as well. No one said you have to do it all yourself. Keep in mind though that it costs money to get someone to do it for you, unless you have a friend that can do it for free or cheaply. It is mandatory in order for people to see your site; it’s just part of the action. Good SEO means Google will index and move your site up the ranks so it gets seen better.

So you must familiarise yourself with the market, and you might be surprised at just how much you can do on your own.

Your business site needs to be easily navigable and very user-friendly.

I recommend Wealthy Affiliate. I would use them for hosting alone as it is very secure you get the use of ten sites, the support is fast and very good at fixing any problem rapidly. The training provided is top notch and the community is excellent.

Still want a business?

Continue to learn more information about these tips and others you read. Learn everything you can and then get started today setting your home-based business up the right way.

It’s hard work, there is much to learn but there is also a lot of information out there readily available to help you.

There is nothing better than working for yourself, choosing the hours to suit you, loving what you do and discovering that it doesn’t feel like work because you are having so much fun.

And of course you can go and visit friends and relatives, go on holiday and your business can go with you. No need to shut it down, do the minimal amount while you are on holiday but still keep earning.

Tips for a Successful Blog

Tips for a Successful Blog 1

Now this blog post could cover pages and pages if I am not careful. There is nothing more exciting and fun than helping others. Like most people I love to impart the knowledge I have learnt, so I decided to pass on some tips for a successful blog.

The idea that sparked this post

I was reading a blog post about reasons for starting a blog. The writer said it needed to be personal which is correct. I call this the Why (read more HERE!). This is your reason for wanting to blog in the first place. It was reading that blog that gave me the idea for this blog. I started thinking about all the reasons people want a blog to start with.

My first blog

Many years ago I had a blog to showcase crafts, mine and other peoples. My particular ‘thing’ or style I suppose became a poem or ditty. I did a daily blog and always added a verse of some sort, usually related to what I had showcased, the theme. Sometimes it was about world situations or even the weather.

It built up regular viewers very quickly and was popular. Unfortunately people did not tell me until much later that it really helped their sales to be on there.

I also had no idea about monetising a blog in any way. I didn’t have time to read other blogs between family, work, making my own crafts to sell and blogging daily. So I missed an opportunity and gradually stopped blogging so much because it took up a chunk of time I needed for making, then it gradually stopped as life took over.

The trouble with something like writing a blog is, you need to be consistent. If you write regularly, it becomes a habit you do automatically. Miss a few and the habit is disappearing, blog sporadically and the habit disappears altogether.

Create your styleBe a blogger Tips for a Successful Blog

The blog also has to be personal in that you give it your voice which is your style.
That’s why copy and pasting doesn’t work, it looks and sounds impersonal. Plus if you have some or all of your content written for you, your blog won’t reflect your style or voice. Once you have attained success and have many followers then it is easier to let others write for you, a good writer will be able to give the writing at least some of your style and voice.

Many leaders in the blogging industry have a team that does the day to day stuff for them but the team will know how the blogger prefers each post to be.

People have a need to connect with other people. When your writing has your voice, that tone that makes it easily recognisable as yours, they will  feel a connection that brings them back, again and again.

How to give it a Voice

That’s easy, make it about something you are passionate about. Do you have a hobby, an interest, something you do for fun or used to do before life squeezed it out?

Can’t think of anything? What do you talk to others about? Gaming? Crafts, Books, sports, health, wellbeing, keep fit, weightlifting, needlework, embroidery, baking, cars, bikes, motorbikes, gardening?  The list is endless, it could go on for pages and pages. This amount gets the point across though.

It helps to know something about your subject which if it’s something you already love, you will know quite a bit about it.

If you can write as if you were talking to someone in the same room, explaining all about your passion, it makes the writing more personal and interesting to read.

Why do you need a blog?

Mainly because we all like to check something out before we buy. Also we don’t always know what we need so we go in search of answers to a problem.

Say you have a particular niche on …… gardening which is a growing interest not just to look pretty but for growing food. So those that are new to it but really fancy growing organic produce will go looking for information on how to make a start. They want to know what to grow and when and most importantly how to prepare the soil, whether raised beds are better and so on.

So the blog writer will consider all problems growers have, from new gardener to the experienced gardener  and write posts on solutions. Then you will have products, affiliate or otherwise, that you will recommend and they will find useful.

The gardening niche is just an example but it works much the same way in other niches.

How soon will I make money?

Like any business it will take time to build trust, via your blog posts and you will need to have quite a lot of posts on your site for Google to rank them high enough to get seen often. Google and other search engine rankings is what brings organic traffic to your site. These are the people specifically searching for what you are writing about.to blog or not to blog, that is the question

You will research and use keywords to bring those people to you. The keywords are the search terms people are using the most in search of information that they need.

So how long? Months if not a year or more. Though that depends upon how much time you have to research and write your posts and how many posts you can do in a week. If you can write quality posts every day, that will obviously make a difference to the time frame.

However, it is not a fast process, so earning will not be immediate or even in the near future. However once your site builds trust and the search engines decide you are an authority then traffic will build and along with it the chance to start earning sooner.

Mind you, if you have got to the point of asking about blogging or are looking for tips, you probably have the blog set up, if not actually started writing and you will know that it is not a fast solution to earning.

Pro’s and Cons of blogging

It can be hard at first, getting into the habit of writing more than a thousand words but it’s surprising how quickly you get used to it and the words start to flow without having to think too hard.

Many worry that they will run out of things to write about. I did at first but again once you have written several posts you find there are more and more ideas that spring up.

What about the research? That can be time consuming but mainly because you end up finding interesting ideas for more blog posts.

Traffic takes a long time to build up. social mediaNot necessarily. Organic traffic takes time to build but social media induced traffic can be much faster.
Make sure you set up social media business accounts from the start. If you only get a few minutes here and there it will help the followers to increase. The bigger the following the better the traffic.

What do you think?

Does it sound fun, adventurous, exciting, crazy, mad, daft or what? Some of them, all of them?

Me? I absolutely love it. It seemed a chore at first because I was constantly watching the word count but as I really got into it, I forgot all about how many words I was writing.

The amount of words became irrelevant, it was all about the information instead.

Where am I?

I am on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. They host my websites securely, have pretty much instant support and have an amazing amount of training on pretty much every subject you can think of to do with online selling and marketing.Free starter membership

I looked for a long time to find a platform like this. Am I biased. YES, I definitely am. I have been on Wealthy Affiliate for 15 months and loved every minute of it. I still love it and cannot imagine being anywhere else.

I have learnt so much in the 15 months. I can build wordpress websites, I learnt about SEO, plugins and keywords. I can research, write blog posts, know a lot more about social media and the list just goes on.

Nearly forgot another major bonus of the platform. The amazing and brilliant community. There are a lot that have been there many years and pop in and out to help and advise when they get the chance. People write blog posts on the platform itself and they are full of helpful and useful advice. If you ask a question it is generally answered quickly by different people.

The truth about Affiliate Marketing

The truth about Affiliate Marketing

There are so many myths flying around about affiliate marketing ……..

on how to be successful, how hard it is to be successful and what you actually need to have a successful affiliate marketing business.

So lets see the truth about affiliate marketing and show you that you are only a few steps away from creating  a viable home business opportunity.

Size of Email ListGmail. The truth about Affiliate Marketing

The size of your email list is one of the biggest misconceptions out there. People say you need a HUGE list to make money with affiliate marketing. NOT TRUE!

 The quality of the list is more important than the quantity. Mailing to 100,000 subscribers does not mean you will make sales. Having a list of buyers is so much better than having a list of subscribers that have opted in for a free report or ebook.

The free subscribers probably will buy from you but someone that has already bought from you before has trust in you and will be more likely to buy products you have recommended to them.
So the bigger the buyer email list the more likely it is you will get commissions and profits from your efforts to supply quality and value to them.

The general advice is:

  • It’s not just about delivering promotions to them all the time but also giving them advice and showing them results. Sending clickable links in each email is important so they can view your recommendations regularly.
    Emailing daily is a must to keep you and your brand at the top of your subscribers mind and inbox. Don’t let yourself get forgotten.
  • If you are not emailing your list AT LEAST once a day you are leaving money on the table. When people first begin making a new email list and check how many subscribers they have. They tend to see an email list with a huge number of subscribers as a successful one.  It is important but isn’t and shouldn’t be the only measurement of a successful affiliate email campaign.

All good advice but I am not sure that is entirely true to be honest. The amount of times I have subscribed to something interesting and have then unsubscribed due to the amount of emails is very high. I would say once a day is more than enough as I have heard others voice the opinion that more than one a day is the trigger to make them unsubscribe.

Many marketers do worry and try their best to maintain the overall number of subscribers on their lists. Keeping subscribers is important but it’s just as important to consider the message open rates, clicks through your links and sales conversions too.

Starting Outwebsite

Someone who’s starting to be an affiliate marketer might think about creating their first blog, making a niche website, or establishing an online store because these websites are platforms to generate profits. Whatever direction you go in, affiliate marketing, dropshipping or physical products you make or buy and sell, you will need a blog. Customers now like to read about the products they are thinking of buying or they come looking for solutions to problems you write about.

Setting up your own blog might be simple and easy from the start but it’s not the same story as you go through the process. How to secure a good number of viewers to your articles is the biggest problem for newbie bloggers.
It’s definitely hard to engage enough eyeballs when you are creating your new blog. You have to realize that you are competing in a huge and populated market that makes for very tough competition.

Next step

Having and offering a unique product is good, however you still have to provide satisfying and informative content to answer the never-ending questions. Knowing what your audiences really want is your ultimate goal in promoting your product.blog post, content

It’s important to allow your voice to come through, to have content that’s interesting and holds the readers interest. It’s important that it doesn’t come across as a pushy sales page. Your blog is to answer the questions that customers might ask about your particular niche. They have to learn to trust you before they will be inclined to buy through your affiliate links.Also, don’t forget that you are selling something that is not tangible. Adverts and affiliate links on your blog is what will bring in the money.

Content is king and trust is key to success.

Traffic

If you want to generate real profits you have to create a very big audience. Niche websites are easy to make but  the competition can be greater depending on the niche you choose. To get a large number of visitors to your sites, you need to enhance your Search Engine Optimization skills since search engine traffic eventually contributes to a large part of the total traffic going to a niche site. SEO can be time consuming and is always changing. You can always outsource this to stay in the search engine rankings.

However, regular organic traffic can take a lot of time to build. So in the meantime you build up your social media accounts as they can encourage traffic while you wait for Google to recognise your site.

Are you thinking that technical knowledge, selling skills and other things are the biggest hindrance to start your career in affiliate marketing? Well, these issues can be overcome and solved by a good work ethic and your determination to become a successful affiliate marketer. Don’t let them get in your way to having a business you really want.

Bonusesbonus

Bonuses are purely to persuade the potential customer to buy a particular product through your affiliate link and not from a different affiliate. Customers like to get something that adds value to their product or better still have bonuses that are more valuable than the original product, this makes a customer more likely to buy from you. Bonuses simply add value to the original offer product.

I would say that most of the time the bonuses are worth more than the product. They are needed as an incentive because you are selling the same thing as many other affiliates. The types of bonuses can swing the sale in your favour rather than someone else’s. Customers like getting value for money.

Offer Page

Having a well-written bonus offer page could make the sales flow more easily.

In my opinion more of the offer pages should be honest about their product. They all have a tendency to say the same thing.

  • Up and running in 3 clicks.
  • 5/10 minutes and your site will be earning money.
  • So simple a newbie could do it.
  • Earning within hours.

It’s only when you look closer on the page or in the Frequently Asked Questions, that there is a mention of training videos. I fell for one of those early on in learning affiliate marketing. When I got inside there were 15 sections of videos and the first one had 25 videos in it. The instructions stated that you must watch all the videos first. I was horrified, I just did not have that much time to waste.

Unfortunately, despite many messages sent, I did not get my money back. Really stupid of them because you never trust anything from that person again, the seller (affiliate marketer) or the person who created it. Plus anytime time someone asks if anyone knows what they are like you are going to say, Untrustworthy, don’t buy.

How to create bonuses.

Here are some ways for you to create bonuses. To start with, doing it by yourself is actually the easiest way to create a bonus offer, though a little bit of effort is needed to prepare for it just like doing a little research for your special report. Preparation saves money. You don’t need to spend much in making the bonus available to the customers when you do it yourself.

Another and easier route that is also often used in in affiliate marketing is the use of Private Label Rights. PLR products are created by someone else and you can buy the product and the rights to it, so essentially you own it. That way you can sell the product or offer it as a bonus or as part of a bonus package.

This is a good choice if you don’t have your own items as yet for bonuses offers. It would save you time and effort as well and with many you can edit the product and even put your own name to it.

Some affiliates also get together to share items for bonuses but this would need to be with someone you trust. Plus it would have to be worked out fairly for the benefit of both parties.

Have I put you off?

It does take time to get started, there is a lot to learn. There are also scammers out to take your money without offering anything tangible you can learn from.

BUT if you are keen, prepared to put in the time and effort to learn and do the work, then in time you can earn a full time income. You can work from anywhere including your home, work the hours you choose, though they will be long to start with. Especially if you start off doing this alongside the day job.

However, for the time and effort it will be worth it in the long run because you will have a business that isn’t affected by anything much.  Trends do change of course but as long as you keep that in mind and diversify you will stay ahead of the game.

Travel was affected by the Pandemic but if you have another blog that is a completely different niche such as …. fitness/home gyms/cycling etc, then you push that one more for the duration.

Major blog owners are using the correct ranking process, which is getting ranked by the consistent posting of good quality content.

Here are some Easy Article Writing tips

What is makes a good quality article? A quality article informs, entertains, convinces or converts, and conveys a compelling message in a clear and concise manner.

 Guides in the creation of a quality article.

  • Your article should contain resources that are useful.post Easy Article Writing tips
  • It should contain practical tips that your readers can use and easily apply. Step by step ‘How to’s’ are often popular.
  • If you are writing an article on a topic that encourages discussion, you should give an alternative view and encourage readers to discuss the topic.
  • Your content should have your ‘voice’ that makes it personal to you. Adding your own experiences can help the reader identify with you. Once your readers know the content is consistently good you will have established a degree of trust with them  that will bring them back regularly.
  • When writing your article any facts should be supported with references and links to the original post. That way they can check the original and read  further if they wish.
  • When writing about a topic or idea be sure the information good quality and up to date. It’s no good writing about methods of doing things on the internet from 10 years ago.

Wikipedia has a page on articles HERE

  • This page advises on article layout and style, and on making an article clear, precise and relevant to the reader.

has a page on

What Constitutes Bad Content

If there are quality articles, it means there should be rubbish articles also. Rubbish or bad articles are those that have no relevance, its just writing for writings sake.

Tips to avoid when writing a good article:

  • Affiliate links: Too many affiliate links is not considered a good idea.
  • To many repetitive sentences without substance can put people off. You sometimes see this when people are trying to reach a set word count. It may meet the criteria set but is boring for the reader.words crossed out
  • Too much of a hard sell is very off putting for potential customers and readers. You aren’t there to make a hard sales pitch. What you are there for is to introduce things that your customers will find useful or will solve a problem they may have. If a person makes enquiries and you cannot help with what they seek then you can always send them in the direction of help that is available. You wont get that sale but they will be back because you were so helpful and solved a problem for them.
  • Guest Posting: When writing articles for guest posting check their guidelines and write accordingly. Going off topic will not get it accepted.

Proofread all you write

Most of the time you write and just assume your content is good and it’s ready to publish without checking. That’s not always the case. You should proofread your articles and check the spelling etc. Though there are plug ins that will check spelling and give a reading on the SEO. A good one will also show when your article falls short in the SEO department with advice on what to add where. A good one that I use is Rank Math and its free. The website gives a rundown on all the features. Certainly worthwhile to give it  try. When I added it to my sites I went back over previous posts and discovered that many early ones had a very low score. Those were changed and re added to Google Console.

Programs like Grammarly and so many others can also be useful but even then its a good idea to check the article over just to ensure there isn’t a glaring error that was missed.

Check the word count too if you want it an optimum length to be indexed by Google and moved up the ranks.

Writers Block

fuzzy focus

It happens to us all at some point or other. You sit down to write but words just won’t flow and you lose your focus. You try a bit of  brainstorming but that comes up blank too. Then you try reading a few blogs for inspiration, playing around with keywords but still the words aren’t there.

What do you do?

Talk to Someone

When you experience writers block, it  can be good to talk to someone.  To a friend or a family member maybe. Whoever is supportive of your work. Tell them  you are looking for inspiration and see what happens.

Do Some Exercises

Sometimes a block can be due to stress from an event or situation. In that case walk away from your work and focus on something else. Go for a walk or a run, if you like running, do yoga or some other form of exercise for a while.

More Ideas

Meditation can be an excellent way to set the mind free and bring new ideas.add new

Something I do is every time I get an idea for a post I write it as a post title. Then I will start writing a few lines that came with the idea. After coming to a natural halt, I will save the new post as a draft to add to later. I do this quite often as when the idea appears I might not have the time to research and write the piece there and then but I don’t want to forget about it.

That way there are often several blogs posts waiting to be fleshed out. If you have no ideas you can look through those waiting until one sparks interest. Or try adding a few more lines to each and one will have you writing more.

Sometimes we subconsciously sabotage ourselves. Read about limiting beliefs in this post. HERE!

The Variety of Article Styles

What sort of articles would be best for you to write?  So what sort are there?

  • Articles about tips (as this one)
  • Comparison articles ( comparing products)
  • Articles about personal experiences (depending upon the blog niche)
  • Review Articles
  • How to articles

There are of course more but this gives you the general idea.

In conclusion

So there are many variations to focus upon. The articles or posts you write will of course depend upon the niche you have chosen and that will determine your topics.

Whatever you focus upon, if you have personal experience the reader will often like to hear about it. It gives them a connection with you and helps build the trust.

The main thing is to fill your website/blog with good quality content that will be interesting enough to bring people back and rank well with Google. The more you rise up Googles ranks, the more traffic you are likely to get to your website.

Simple Affiliate Marketing tips

123 lets go

It doesn’t matter whether you are new to this or been doing it for years, it is an ongoing learning process. Everyone, it seems, is always interested in simple affiliate marketing tips. Knowledge is power and the more we know the better our businesses are.

Tips for Affiliate marketing.

Every, or maybe that should be, most affiliate marketers are always looking for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck.

Some think there is a magic formula that is readily available for them if only they could find it.

Actually, it is both more complicated than that and easier than that. The magic formula is good marketing practices that have been proven over many years and of course, hard work and dedication.

There are basic formula’s that have worked before with online marketing and are continuing to work in the growing online affiliate marketing world of today. With these 3 simple affiliate marketing tips, you will be able to able to increase your sales and survive in the affiliate marketing online.

What are the basic formula’s?marketing Simple Affiliate Marketing tips

1. Using unique web pages

to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save time, effort or  money. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every separate niche and nothing more.

Always have product reviews on your website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the products can do to and for those who buy them. Include testimonials from those who have already tried the product if you can. Check that your customers are willing to allow you to use their names and/or photos on the site of the product you are marketing.

You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive, compelling and include calls to action on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

2. Offer free downloadable ebooks

to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.b;og

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospective customer leaving the page and never returning again. By placing useful information into their email inboxes at certain specified times, you will remind them of the product they thought they wanted to buy and hopefully will return later. Be sure that your content gives them specific reasons to buy the product. Don’t make it sound like a sales pitch because that can be off putting. The hard sell approach no longer works, people tend to back away.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life easier and more enjoyable and or solve a problem they may have. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those who signed up for your free ebook that they will be missing something big if they do not avail of your products and services.

3. Get the right kind of traffic

that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 800-1500 words in length, preferably more. By continuously writing good content you can generate more targeted readers to your site per day.
Always remember that only a small percentage of the people visiting your site are likely to buy your product or your services. Which is why we try to generate as much traffic as possible to our websites each day.

The tips given above are not difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires time and action on your part, especially with writing content. The saying is: ‘Content is king’.
