Why the Home Based Business Industry (Network Marketing) Is Growing

Every year the home based business industry is growing. More and more people are finding that starting a business from home is the best way to generate an additional income especially in the economy we are facing today. There are many advantages to starting a home based business. Some include: A low overhead (cost), advantage of working anytime a person pleases, and even tax benefits.However, these advantages of owning a home based business have always been a part of home based businesses. So why is there a sudden growth? Why are more and more people starting their own business from their home, and why does network marketing seem the way to go for these people?The first reason people are turning to home based businesses is because of the worldwide economic uncertainty. Currently, here in the U.S., we are in the middle of a recession. Many other economies are also in the middle of a recession or in the midst of one. If one were to turn on the television, read the newspaper, and even listen to the radio, all he/she would hear about is the bad state the economy is in. He/she would also hear about the downsizing of a company and how the unemployment rates are rising. What network marketing and the home based business industry has to offer is the chance to generate a side income.Think of it as insurance for a paycheck. If one loses their job, the home based business can temporarily (or completely, if the entrepreneur wants) supplement their income they lost. The kind of extra income that can be made have been proven to help thousands of families around the globe. It has been proven, time and time again, that many network marketers have made much more than the full time income they were receiving before jumping into network marketing. In fact, some of them have made themselves millionaires. Unfortunately, becoming a millionaire is not what everyone becomes. Only the ones willing to put it the extra effort are the ones that make the millions. Most will find that average network marketers run their business part-time and make a few hundred per month or thousand per month.Network marketing is moving a product and/or service to the end consumer all from personal relationships. Because this is the way network marketing works, it is easier for small businesses to connect with consumers who find themselves “cocooning.” Cocooning is where the consumer shields itself from all kinds of messages from marketers. With network marketing, companies and small businesses find an easier, and much more cost effective way of communicating their message to the consumer.One big reason people start their business ventures in the network marketing industry is because of how great a tool the internet is for network marketers. The internet has made network marketing much easier than it used to be. With the internet, network marketers can inform, train, and even motivate, from home, on the internet. For the more advanced network marketer, the internet is a great tool to automate the marketing part of their business, and ultimately make the internet do all the work.Another reason more and more people are deciding to start a home based business is because home office equipment show a decrease in cost. With just a few hundred dollars, one can have a suitable home office set-up. In fact, most network marketers have three things to run their business: 1.) A computer, 2.) internet connection, and 3.) a phone. As you can see, compared to regular, brick-and-mortar businesses, a home based business, doesn’t cost too much to start. That alone is a big attracting factor in the network marketing industry.A big factor that brings people to start a home based business is because of the lack of job security today. A few years back, people got used to the fact that they have work for life, or at least until they decide to quit. However, because of the economic conditions, job security is only mere hope. Corporate employers can’t guarantee job security anymore. Since job security can’t be guaranteed, people find themselves stepping up to the plate and start a business to keep that income coming in.The main advantage of network marketing is not just the potential income that can be generated, it’s what network marketing can actually do to improve a network marketer’s self. It’s a great way to build leadership skills and ultimately become their own boss. With network marketing, employees do not have to rely on their employers paycheck. Also, the support structures of great network marketing companies offer the best help an individual needs when joining this type of business.Certainly, we will see more home based businesses start and bloom in the future. If one were to look at the economic condition, it would be easy to assume that companies that offer jobs for life are a thing of the past. It is also evident that starting a home based business might be the next best step for anyone suffering because of the economic times.

Starting a Home-Based Business – Tips for Beginners

When looking into starting a home based business many beginners are faced with challenges they never saw coming, and a few well placed tips can be worth their weight in proverbial gold. If you are looking into getting off on the right foot, or making sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew, take a deep breath, relax, and go over the following tips for creating a successful home business.Home-based Business Tip #1: What industries interest you? The saying goes that a person who loves their job never works a day in their life. The inverse is true as well, the person who either hates or even just merely dislikes their job will grind through hours of work and just be thinking about getting it done and going and doing something else. Especially with jobs that have no boss or schedule defined by management goading you on in your work it is important to do something that interests you and keeps you motivated.

Make a list of industries that interest you, and make a list of companies within those industries.
Simplicity is important when comparing companies. The simpler the marketing plan, the more attainable it is. Cross off any companies that seem overly complicated in the way they do business.
Home-based Business Tip #2: Know what you are able to give. Many companies publish flashy sales videos with the promise of giving the opportunity to make millions, and while this may be true the real opportunity is IN HOW YOU MANAGE YOURSELF AND THE EFFORT THAT YOU CAN INVEST INTO YOUR BUSINESS. Ultimately financial success comes down to effort. When considering any kind of home based business, remember that the you are everything from the CEO to the delivery boy. While most CEO’s are not fitting in business calls between soccer practice and ballet lessons, you are. So measure your ability to put out effort, and know what you are able to give to your business. This will inform what business you choose to become a part of. Find a business model that you can work with. This means that maybe you pass up the higher activity, higher pay models, and go for an approach that is more laid back.

Write out your daily or weekly schedule, and determine how many hours you can devote to growing your business.
Home-based Business Tip #3: Have realistic goals. Lets be honest, the reason most people get involved with home-based businesses is to make money. “My goal is to be a millionaire.” Awesome. That is a fantastic goal, but that isn’t going to happen in one fell swoop. Have monetary short term (1-3 months), medium (1-3 years) and long term (3-5 years) goals that are realistic based of your level of effort. If you have a short term goal of making a million dollars, but can only invest 2 hours a week into your business you are most likely (notice I said most likely) going to fail and end up becoming discouraged. Setting goals that are realistic will keep you motivated and moving forward. Knowing how much money you are looking to make, with how much effort, will begin to eliminate businesses from your list of options.

Write out your short, medium and long term goals.
Cross any companies off your list that do not leverage your time and effort effectively.
Select 2-3 companies that interest you, have simple marketing plans, and don’t break your time/effort budget.
Home-based Business Tip #4: Look for leadership. The number 1 reason for failure in the home-based business world is poor leadership. It is vitally important to have a sponsor who is able to coach, mentor, and guide you towards success. You should feel comfortable that all the information that your sponsor has gathered is at your disposal. Stay away from companies that tend to have lone-wolf representatives, or that give a lot of focus on moving up the marketing plan without developing leadership skills. These companies are more intent on making money themselves than in helping you make money. Talk to various people within each company, as different personality types work better than others. Do not gamble your success or failure on a personal issue that develops between you and your mentor.

Interview several people to “qualify” your sponsor.
Select a sponsor who you are comfortable with, and who will do what it takes to make you successful.

Investing and Property Management

I have had lots of people over the years ask me, in my opinion, what is the most important thing about investing in real estate? Everybody always assumes its price, location or timing the market correctly. After over 1300 real estate transactions primarily to investors worldwide, I can say without a doubt that property management is the single most important piece of the investing puzzle. In real estate, you can make a mistake on price, pick an iffy neighborhood, or hire a bad contractor and still be profitable. Hire the wrong property manager and you can lose your shirt overnight! Don’t get me wrong, location, price and rehab are huge factors in real estate investing and are very important. With the right property management company in place though you can make a mistake or experience a down turn in a market or neighborhood and still realize a good return on your investment through positive cash flow. A good property manager protects your investment in the long-term.

Obviously, the next question is “how do I find a good property manager”? Here are several tips on picking a good management company. This does not necessarily mean you; someone else will be managing your property.

Get a referral. Typically, when you invest, there are people in your peer group or circle of influence that are investing in the same market you are or know of someone who is also investing in that market. Ask them who they are using, who they used to use, and why they switched. Find out what they like about their management company but more importantly find out what they don’t like about them. The management company may do a great job of placing tenants but are lacking in the communication department; without communication, you’re sunk! Access to your management company is very important for the investor’s peace of mind. There is nothing worse than leaving a message or sending a couple of emails and all you hear are crickets in the background. At first, you assume they are busy and will get to you soon. After a while, though, investors start wondering why no one is responding and that’s when panic sets in. Did the tenant leave? Did the management company run off with my money? DID MY HOUSE BURN DOWN? Generally, none of the above is true but a good property manager will respond within 24 hours of your inquiry.

Ask the management company that you are considering doing business with for references. Ideally, I believe you want 5 to 10 references from previous clients as well as current clients that have been using the management company longer than 1 year. If they are not willing to provide you with any past clients, pass on them. When you get the references, CALL THEM. Ask them the same questions about what they like and don’t like.

Get a list of policies and procedures from the management company. You need to know how they handle marketing of the properties for tenants, late payments, evictions, maintenance calls, inspections, accounting, owner disbursements, etc. A good management company will have this information readily available.

Find out if the management company is licensed in the state you are investing in. Most states require that the property manager is a licensed real estate broker and are held accountable to their state real estate board. There are many “property managers” out there that are not, but have taken this opportunity to increase their income while investing is hot. Though they may be cheaper, DO NOT USE AN UNLICENSED MANAGEMENT COMPANY! You will have no recourse to police them.

Find out what software program the management company uses. There are a few good property management software programs that are web-based such as Buildium and PropertyWare that give the property owner a portal login so you can access your account via the web 24 hours a day. A good property management company will log all tenant calls, maintenance concerns, payments, late notices etc., into the software program. This is beneficial to both parties as a majority of an investor’s questions or concerns can be addressed by logging into the software program and looking at the info at hand there. This eliminates a lot of phone calls between the property manager and the owner. It also helps the owner to narrow down questions or concerns by addressing specific information found in their portal.

The reason for investing is to get paid. You need to know when the money comes in, where it’s at, what your expenses are, and when you get your payments. Most management companies reconcile accounts 1 month in arrears. Rents collected in 1 month are disbursed the following month for the simple fact that not all expenses come in time to get an accurate accounting to disburse rent proceeds in the same month. Each management company is different but should be able to tell you to the day when to expect payments on a monthly basis. You also need to know when to expect the quarterly or annual accounting needed for your tax man. Again, a good software program makes this much easier for the management company to keep track of and share with you.

To me, the fees that a management company charges are important but not as important as the previous items in this list. I have seen it over and over again where somebody picks one management company over another based solely upon fees. 3-6 months later after dealing with terrible tenants, bad accounting practices and more, the few hundred bucks they saved cost them literally thousands of dollars. Here is a brief run down on the fees you can expect to pay.

Monthly Management fee: usually 7-10% of collected rents depending on the market you are investing in. Higher rental amounts usually equate to lower monthly fee percentages and lower rents are higher percentages. A few companies will have a set monthly fee of somewhere between $50-$100 dollars per month.

Leasing Fee: usually 50-100% of the 1st month’s rent; again depending on average rent amounts. Most property management companies employ commissioned leasing agents that are usually paid a percentage of this fee up to 50%.

Set up Fee: this is charged for the time it takes to set up the new accounts, generate bank accounts etc., usually around $100 dollars.

Vacancy Fee: some management companies will charge a flat fee per month on a vacant unit. Their reasoning is that a vacant unit still requires someone to keep tabs on that property usually on a 1-2 week cycle to verify that the property is secure, yard is in good order, rental signs are in place and visible etc. I have found that only about 50% of property management companies charge for this service. Unfortunately, I have also found that half of the ones who don’t charge for this are not checking the properties periodically and sometimes a small issue turns into a bigger more expensive issue down the road.

Advertising Fees: most good property managers do not charge extra for the marketing of the vacant units to potential renters as they are paid when the properties become occupied and the advertising expense is covered by the leasing fee. Some property managers will give you the option of extra paid advertising if you have a property that is tougher to rent than usual.

Maintenance Fees: most management companies use maintenance as a profit center; some more than others! Due to the volume that some management companies do they are able to procure vendors at a much lower rate than what you could get on your own thereby allowing them to make a profit on certain maintenance items. Yard mowings are a great example of this. A large management company may be mowing 100 yards a season and can negotiate a volume deal at $15-$20 per yard to them. They, in return, “sell” this service to you at the market rate of $25-$30 per mowing. It is still a good deal for you as you are hands off and would expect to pay the same price if you were only contracting to have 1-2 yards mowed. On the other hand, some management companies go to excess on other maintenance issues such as repairs after a tenant has moved out. Typically, the security deposit should cover most items necessary to make a property re-rentable unless a bad tenant was placed and they have trashed your property. Some management companies use this as a way to increase their profits by over charging for these repairs. I recommend having a 3rd party inspect and/or bid any repairs that seem excessive to you.

Hiring the Right Real Estate Attorney

Investing in property is a very important decision in one’s life. You are going to invest all your savings, in some cases a hefty loan, into buying a property that you will cherish for the rest of your life. You won’t want to spend that money buying something that’s not worthwhile. Getting cheated is often possible especially when you are involved with investments. Even if you are not really cheated with the property, you can always be cheated while signing an agreement or making that buying decision. You could be asked to agree to clauses that are not legal or, something like that. It is always good to hire a real estate law firm who would give you the perfect legal advice in such cases. After all when you are investing a lot of money buying a property, investing a small amount in an attorney is good idea to protect the legal issues. When hiring a law firm or its attorney, there are some aspects that you should not ignore. Here’s how you select the right real estate attorney for your property related investment.

Referrals or Relationships

A good real estate attorney could be realized with good relations. Probably when you dealt with a law firm in your last dealing, you made good relations with them. This would help you in your current dealing as well. But, if not then try to get some good references. Your neighbour, your relative or, your best friend could have hired a real estate law firm in the past when selling or buying a property. You can ask them about it and, get a real good deal. Hiring a real estate law firm from references or past deals makes sense as you get the right attorney. Remember, its about your property and the legalities of that property. So, you need to make the right choice in here.

From the Bar Association

If you have none of the above mentioned sources, you could probably contact the bar association in your state for help in the same. They can provide you with a list of attorneys who deal with real estate on a daily basis. In fact, you can even come up with listings of law firm dealing in real estate. Both of these together make up for a good research and comparison. You can ask people around you and, do some research before choosing the right attorney.

Consult your List

Once you have come up with a list of attorneys, you can probably consult a few of them personally. These personal meetings can help you understand if they have the right experience and talent to get you through your property dealing. You can even seek some legal advice during these consultations. If you feel the attorney suits you, you can close the deal with him and hire him straight away.

How To Succeed At Online Product Creation The Easy Way

Product creation could be a frightening subject for a lot of Internet marketers to face. Some folks who get in the game with the intention of making a full time income are completely ignorant as to how an online business operates. One of the most profitable ways to create online cash is by creating a product that others are happy to pay for.

Product creation is legitimate method of generating money through internet marketing but many entrepreneurs get it wrong. They start by imitating their Internet marketing gurus by creating information products on Internet marketing in hopes of getting rich the way their heroes did. The problem is that they usually don’t know what they are doing and enter a highly competitive niche with very little marketing experience or connections.

Here are a few tips for effective product creation that may help you get on the right track:
Start by finding a profitable niche with low to moderate competition. If you conduct some rudimentary market research and keyword research, you’ll find many opportunities in areas that will surprise you. Amazon and eBay are two great places to brainstorm for product ideas.

Developing Your Product does not have to be a difficult project. You can find experts in the right field for your niche and pay them to write the material while an artist designs the packaging and website or blog. You can outsource the entire product creation part of the project after you conduct the research and testing to ensure profitability.

Sales and marketing strategies should be created while developing the product and learning about the market. Some experienced marketers use pay per click to drive traffic to their offer page; some folks outsource the entire marketing campaign to affiliates through ClickBank or other affiliate programs.

Product creation does not need to be hard, particularly when the merchandise is electronic. E-books, videos, audio and multi-media products sell very well. They are distributed immediately to customers electronically. Once you have a good feel for a niche market, try to service your customers with associated products and upgrades. If you want to earn money online through product creation, you must understand supply and demand. The majority of new online marketers fail miserably because they go after highly competitive markets or forget to research their chosen niche properly. You have to create your products according to the needs, wants and desires of the prospective customers.

Information Product Creation: Never Compete on Price Because There Is Only One You

Information product creation requires extensive preparation, no matter which niche you work within and you want to make sure that your information product has a successful launch. That probably sounds scary and intimidating but here’s the thing: this is a one time effort and it will pay off in a foundation that is strong enough to get your ideal clients to invest in your high-end programs and services without the perils of a traditional funnel. This article will teach you a few of the things that you need to remember if you’d like to invest in yourself and start on the information product creation path using your unique talents and abilities. Remember that you never have to worry about anyone ripping off your ideas because if you understand how to properly position yourself around your story.

Understand Both Strengths and Weaknesses: It is good to have an impartial view of your own strengths and weaknesses when lay the foundation of selling yourself within the information product creation process. It helps you figure out where you are, what you lack and how to move forward so that you get as much growth as possible. It is more than important, it is urgent if you want to create fast success for yourself to have personal positive reinforcement and deep belief to provide yourself the support you need so that you can get over your own limitations to ensure that your information product is as valuable as it can be.

You also need to know exactly who your competition is so you can study them and use their methods to help you improve your own standings. Down recreate the wheel, but understand the wheel and position yourself going uphill from the competition. Check out which kinds of opportunities you’ve already got and try to figure out how best to use them while taking care to remember your strengths and weaknesses. This is a great way to figure out where you stand against your competition which helps you figure out how best to grow.

Launch on Time: No matter what, even if you haven’t officially announced your “launch date” you should launch the site when you’ve said you would. This will force you to stick to your goal and actually work on it. Thinking that “I’ll launch it when I think it’s ready to launch” will only hinder your efforts. You’ve got a responsibility that you need to live up to with your launch, and you can’t move back on that one. If you get close to your launch date and you are getting hung up on your self limiting beliefs in your information product creation, don’t worry this about getting it out there and not perfection. As long as it is usable you should launch it. Launching on time is the professional thing to do and it is more important than creating a “wow” effect in your site visitors. You can always update/upgrade your website when you have to, so there shouldn’t be any issue with that.

Analyze Your Own Concept: If you want to make your information product creation successful you need to understand how good your concept is: is it really going to work for your chosen audience or would something else be better? You already know about your competition; how does your concept measure up? If you haven’t come up with your own idea and are trying to work with someone else’s concept, do some more work on your own before your launch. People want original ideas because they’ve seen too many other me-too websites already.

Test Your Concept Before You Commit To The Information Product Creation Process: One of the biggest failures people have with information product creation is not testing an idea before putting a lot of effort into producing an information product. PPC to a small 5 page site with a landing page is a great way to test an offer before you even produce it. If people will sign up to get it, you can be sure that you can create an information product that will target eliminating the pain of your target market. The small amount of money will be invaluable in using crowd sourcing to direct the final outline of the information product creation process.

You’ll have lots of hurdles to clear after the launch of your information product and the only way to truly take care of them is to follow the advice in this article to work smarter. Plenty of people work hard, but it is the ones who work smarter who make real money online with the information product creation business model.

Plan To Succeed With Information Product Creation: Why You Need To Split Your Process Up

One of the keys to succeeding in information product creation is to break the process up into discrete steps. This frequently isn’t an instinctive reaction for the typical information marketer. Especially on the internet where small sized learning products are the norm.

However, it is extremely important to your ultimate success. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if you don’t do this you probably won’t succeed… even when you are starting out let alone as you move forward.

Your product creation system should do this for you if only to help you to understand the overall task.

But why?

In this article, I’m going to ignore chunking and focus on the practical aspects. That’s not to say that chunking isn’t important. It is. It’s important to understanding and to learning the process. But while you can use the same chunks as you move forward, long term your focus needs to be on the operation of the system not the understanding of it. Unless of course you are constantly training new people!

So why is chunking important to long term use of the product creation process? (Yes, I know systems design uses a different term for this process but I’m not teaching you systems design. So I’m going to use the word learning content designers use.)

The first reason that having individual discrete tasks is important is one of schedule estimation. Frequently it is very difficult to estimate how long the total task of creating a product will take. After all, the size and type of the products matters as does the number of products in your product funnel. And those are just the most obvious elements. However, estimating a discrete task is often much easier. The total can then be estimated as the total of the discrete tasks.

Secondly, scheduling a large task can be problematic. However, by segmenting the task into a number of discrete tasks, you gain a much greater flexibility in scheduling. Not only that but as your business begins to add people you are able to schedule multiple people to the product creation.

Finally, segmenting a large task into smaller discrete tasks allows you to have much better control over the product creation. This affects two different areas — status and quality.

By segmenting your process into discrete tasks you are able to schedule and record the progress at much more detailed level. As a result you are more in control of the status of the product creation. You know what everyone is doing. When they should complete it. And how much it should cost. You also know exactly what has been done.

You also improve your overall quality. Instead of waiting until everything is done you can check quality as you go. This allows you to immediate react to low quality products without absorbing their costs. This means that you have less rework and your rework costs less. And if the product is not going to meet its quality requirement you will know about it in time to stop the development, change the requirement or fix the product.

A Guide on Successful Product Creation and Internet Marketing

Product creation in Internet marketing is getting stiffer and stiffer nowadays owing to tough competition between Internet-based businesses. Putting up a new product requires plenty of brainpower and finances along with an ability to take risk. With that, even if you have the product well-set already, you have to position it strategically in the Internet landscape for others to notice. You should get the interest of Web users and turn them to actual customers. Aside from the usual physical products, many different products that thrive well on Internet marketing include E-books, membership sites, and video lectures.

The long and difficult process of product creation begins with ideas. They are easy to get – compared to the effort that comes with analyzing the market for that idea. Before the idea turns to a product, businesses often spend money, even amounting to millions of dollars, to ensure the success of the new product that emerges from an idea. Businesses undertake many types of market research and surveys before releasing their products to the public. Now, you may think that because your business is small, you can’t afford research or you don’t have to do research; you can and you should. The Internet allows you to disseminate materials needed for your market study to many people at once without your having to spend a cent.

It is a common maxim in business: Look at your destination first before mapping out your journey. So what are the goals you intend to accomplish with your product creation ventures? The everyday travails of your business may make you forget the end in sight. On the other hand, prepare to entertain new developments that come to your mind in your product creation. Your conception of a product may have started this way, but a few tweaks here and there along with some market research results and it ends up another way. Take it as the result of a creative process, not as a failure to reach your goal. After all, your product creation activities are intertwined with a long-term goal that you should strive to sustain at your utmost: profit generation. So if your less profitable initial idea evolves to a more profitable product, be thankful!

With your product made up already, start doing some aggressive Internet marketing. A product purchase typically comes after more than five times a customer is exposed to an informative call-to-buy message. Thus it is important to get the contact details, like the e-mail address, of potential customers who are on the brink of a sale. Use the results of your market research to determine the demographics to which you should concentrate your marketing efforts.

With consistent product creation, you can make an inventory of your products that you can market in due time. Just keep making products – the moment you succeed in making and marketing a product, customers are surely wanting more from you, so give it to them. Keep them on your side through constant product creation.

Considerable Factors Involved in Product Creation & Marketing

The niche you have chosen should allow creation of more than one product or service. With the technological advancements in the hosting industry, from automated control panels and scripts that simplify creation of accounts, to complete turnkey solutions; there is no need to worry about spending time on the real products sold to the customer. The main ones are keyword selection, sales copy principles, graphics, affiliate programs, product creation, online payment processing, auto responders, and search engine optimization.

Once you’ve earned money from this type of information product business, you can invest in the creation of your own products if you want, or start offering more informational products that allow you to sell your knowledge. But the creation and production costs of a similar big ticket in sequence product, although higher, are still pretty low. A key by-product of this process will be the creation of 3-D, Computer Assisted Design art.
