Knowing Target Audiences and Competitors

— These pros come across as not just looking for a sale.

Your prospect must always be the star of the show. Understanding the feelings, thoughts, and motives and putting yourself into your prospect’s shoes is at the center of target marketing.

How to Find the Art of Clarity and Vision

As someone just starting an online business, home based business, or who is an entrepreneur will discover, time is your greatest currency, so you must utilize it by saying no when it won’t help you grow.

There is so very much being offered out there for free – well, there is the cost of your time and focus. And, it feels like you are living in the fields of negative excitement. Could be a pattern?

For me – I felt like a wiggly worm just trying to get across the road on a rainy day!! It was taking so very long to get anywhere! I was really resisting taking my next focused step and becoming more clear, because I was so undecided. Confusing? It was getting me nowhere! (And, that is why they say the majority of ‘newbie’ online marketers never succeed – staying in your path is a requirement.) Read more

Getting Participation and Comments on Your Blog

Show the Carrot

Instead of threatening to prevent people from commenting, you may want to consider giving them a positive incentive to comment.

For instance, you could put some lower bound on the number of comments you must receive before you will create another post.
Example:
You might say that you will only post after you have received at least 30 comments from readers.

With this said, it is important that you follow the response to this policy over time. Make sure that readers aren’t simply posting “good work” or “nice post,” but instead are actively participating. Otherwise, this system will not work and you may need to switch to something else. Read more
