Online Home Business, Internet Marketing and Network Marketing Success, Just Do It!

You’ve got to be in it…

To win it. I’m wondering if you’ve ever heard that saying before? It’s a saying in an ad campaign by the New York State Lottery. I don’t remember the exact words, but it was something like this; a dollar and a dream N.Y. State Lottery but, you have to be in it to win it!

I love that saying. I just feel that it’s directed to the people with the wrong people. Plus the first part of it (a dollar and a dream.) is so amazingly accurate. Because it’s directed towards the dreamers, that will spend their last dollar on a dream or winning millions of dollars. Nevertheless, this article is defiantly not about playing the lottery. But it is about winning and I would say that it’s about winning whatever it is, that you want.

It’s about winning in your online home based business, it’s about winning in network marketing and it’s about winning in life. It’s about you achieving whatever it is that you desire, just by doing. Taking consistent, positive action daily, towards achieving your desired outcome.

And with that, let me share my life experience with “being in it.” As a young karate student, I didn’t hold back and attended every class my teacher had to offer. Friday nights were fight night, and once a month he would have other karate schools come with their students and we would spare (fight) with the students from the many different schools.

My teacher would tell me; Joe, these guys are all higher ranking students and teachers, are you sure that you want to do this? Being the nut that I was, of course I would answer; yes Sensei. (teacher) Then I would gear up and spare against, green, brown and even black belt instructors and these guys and even the women would literally kick my butt. This went on for the first couple of years. The only thing that saved my neck was the fact that I did have some experience fighting and defending myself from being raised in the ghettos of the Bronx. But that just helped a little, these people were trained and well seasoned martial artist.

However, every lump I received was a gift. By the time I became a brown belt, which is one level before black belt, I was pretty much, untouchable by everybody in my division and many others higher up. Why? Because I did it, I was in it and I was in to win. Not only was I a great fighter, I also became the head instructor of the karate school and found one of the most rewarding roles of my life, I had become and still am Sensei Joe.

Now, back to business.

I’m a martial artist, and a former New York City construction worker. That never finished high school. So, what am I doing here writing articles? Doing It! That’s it. I’m in it, to win. I also am well versed in keyword research, search engine optimization, list building, email marketing social marketing and affiliate marketing just to mention a few of many new skills as an online entrepreneur that I have developed from just, doing it.

You don’t hear me saying; doing perfect. You hear me say; doing it and that’s it. Just do it. Look, I know that I’m not the best writer in the world, but I write. I write for you, but I most importantly I write for me. So I can become a better writer. And I am getting better and better with every article that I write. It’s just the way it is, its law. Can we do more? Yes we can, and yes I do. We can do much more. Many of which are described in my blog. However this is one of the foundations of my success. It can also become a very important part of your success. Now, nobody else can “just do It” for you but you. You have to do it.

I’m just going to finish off with one question for you. What did you do today, to bring you one step closer to achieving your goals?

Because the more you do, the closer you’ll come to achieve your goals. So if you do just a little bit every day, you will definitely achieve most of, if not all of your goals someday.

A little extra.

As I mentioned earlier; I’m not the greatest writer. So here is a quote from someone that is; The law of nature is, Do the thing, and you shall have the power; but they who do not the thing have not the power.

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Why Niche Marketing Is A Great Way To Build Up Your Business

If you want to get customers and get them now, then you need to know the ins and outs of your target market. The only way to do this is by research. But sometimes research can be overlooked especially if you’re selling in a niche that you already know things about and if you have “affinity” in the marketplace.

But for the sake of this article, we’re going to assume that you know nothing about a niche, and that you’re looking for ways to start making money in your business. Well if you’re stuck on ideas, the first thing that you should do is go into a niche. And this is a lot easier than it sounds.

By going into a niche, you allow yourself to do business in a little-to-no competition free zone. This should make you excited, because everywhere you turn in the market that you’re in now, there’s competition all around you. These competitors are eating away at all your sales and profits, and could care less about you.

It’s time for you to reclaim what’s yours. If you can make more money in your business without spending thousands of dollars to do so, then you stand a good chance of making money very quickly now – and far into the future. Just be sure not to tell anyone the niche that you’re in.

It doesn’t matter what business you’re in. You can go into a niche. For example, if you’re a professional marketer, instead of offering your marketing talents to all sorts of business owners, consider solely operating in a niche such as dentists. Dentists don’t know about marketing – all they know how to do is fix teeth. So you can come into this niche and take over immediately.

Plus, the beauty of marketing to dentists is that they have money to spend. So you can easily price a marketing solution to them for around $500. This will pad your pockets nicely while the dentists entire income doubles within a short period of time. This is the power of niche marketing.

But before you go out there and start marketing to dentists, you will want to either run an ad, or rent a mailing list. Both have their pros and cons, but the majority of them will buy from you anyway. If you were going to use the advertising option, lead with a strong headline focused on dentists.

For example you could say, “Attention Dentists! Could Your Practice Use A Constant Stream Of New Patients?”… or something like that. Dentists that are interested will respond, and to get more new dentist leads, run the same ad again.

I know I spent a chunk of time talking about dentists, but I hope you can see the lessons in this article and how they relate to marketing in your business. Follow these tips, and you TOO can have success. They have been proven to work for other businesses, and I’m confident that it can work for your too.

Good luck with using these tips to have the most success as possible in your niche.
