business-empowerment-freedomYou want business empowerment and freedom!

But what does that mean?

  • Business Empowerment increases your freedom to choose and act. 

  • Business Freedom puts you in a position to choose.

You have a sharp entrepreneurial attitude and you want to empower, inspire, use your inner business genius!

You are ready to move forward with your business ideas through the creation of your amazing business planning.

Oh Wait a moment here…

Because of self-imposed limitations, including curbing your own business empowerment and freedom, you may prefer to follow someone else’s game plan, or none at all.

Have you ever wondered how you could be marketing to build email sublists? At this point, I might answer, heck, I don’t even know what that is!

A sublist is a smaller segment of your regular list. It’s a great tactic you can use to make sure you’re giving people exactly what they want to know more about.

Don’t “waste” your main list by keeping the subscribers only on that list they originally subscribed to. Read more

Starting a blog is easy – keeping a blog interesting and fresh is a whole other matter.

While many marketers have no trouble beginning a niche blog, the sheer number of abandoned blogs around the ‘net speaks to the fact that many marketers don’t know what to do to keep a blog going. According to blogging experts, the key to keeping a blog going is to post frequently. This means that you’re going to need a ever present stream of content coming into your blog.

You may be intimidated by the thought of having to come up with lots of topic ideas. Finding topics for your blog posts are easy if you use the following ideas.

1. News in your niche
Your blog should be timely and there’s no better way to attract attention on your blog than to tap into some ongoing news. No matter what your niche is you can find news stories and breaking information that will help fuel timely blog posts. Sign up for Google Alerts (it’s free) and set up alerts on important words in your niche. This way you’ll be able to see the news in your niche and blog about current topics.

2. Comments section
The comments section in your blog can be a great source of writing inspiration. Let’s say you have a post on your marketing blog about keyword research. Within the comments section, a few people start asking about how to use keywords in articles for article marketing. Voila! You have your next blog post. Look through your comments section to identify topics that you can write about or questions you can answer in the form of a blog post. Read more

Newsletters & Emails to Subscribers

What else can you do with them?

Do you have an email list? Are you submitting online articles?


  • When you send emails to your subscribers or send out your regular newsletter, post an article, do you stop at that? Have you heard of re-purposing?

Start posting the updates you send to your subscribers and your newsletters or ezines to your blog as well.

Some of your subscribers may not get a chance to read your emails before they are shuffled down their inbox screen or worse yet, they may have filters that are blocking your emails altogether. This will allow them to still receive the valuable information you have to share AND give you more quality content for your blog.

Friends will ask if I can refer someone for cleaning windows, getting credit repair assistance, and on and on – It’s getting more and more difficult to get new people to buy from you, straight out. Some people simply will not buy from those they’ve never heard of and with whom they don’t have a relationship.

Your prospective clients will probably be asking these questions:
– What is this product/service all about?
– What is the main purpose of this product or service?
– How does it solve my problem? Or, help me?
– Is this merchant someone I can trust?
– How do I feel about this offer?

Consider what your prospective clients are looking for. Knowing your target market will help answer these questions during the pre-selling process; by writing copy that “sells” the way you would like to be sold.

– Pre-selling is done in a variety of ways, including what is referred to as an ethical bribe.

Okay, so you are a Home Based business or an entrepreneur (a businesspreneur) now

Imagine this…

You create your product. You put up your sales page and order button. Then you unleash your advertising skills to get your offer in front of as many people as possible.

And then…

Nothing. No sales. Well, maybe a tiny trickle. But not the flood of PayPal or Clickbank notifications that we you were expecting.

No matter what type of affiliate product or service you’re selling, you’re probably always looking for ways to get your offers in front of more prospects… and you’re looking for ways to get folks to click on your affiliates links. That’s because marketing is a numbers game – the more targeted prospects who see your offers , or communicate to you via email, phone or in person, the more money you make.
