The 3 Be’s – How to be Successful in an Online Business

Published

on

Do you want to learn how to be successful in an online business? Today I am going to teach you how with the 3 Be’s. Be Positive, Be Patient, and Be Persistent

The First Be – Be Positive

The first step in any success story is to be positive. You cannot achieve anything in life if you always focus on the negative. Or even if sometimes focus on the negative. Being positive doesn’t come easy for us in today’s world because there is negativity all around us. It is something we always have to work on.

My advice is to use some positive affirmations. Not many just enough to make sure you are in the right mindset. Think about what you want to achieve then phrase your affirmations as if you have already achieved them.

Things like…

  • I am a successful online entrepreneur
  • I am a good salesman
  • Attracting customers is easy for me
  • Building my wealth is easy for me
  • I am making more money every day

You get the idea. I know it sounds ridiculous to say stuff like this when it isn’t true but the point is to make it true. There is a reason why Affirmations should be worded in the present tense like this.

Your mind is a powerful tool, but it cannot be wrong. In other words, if you tell your brain that you are a good salesman then your brain has to be right. So, it will make the statement true. It will tap into all your knowledge and you will start to become better at selling.

I know this sounds far-fetched. Kind of like Sci-Fi but it has been proven to work. Read anything out there on the law of attraction and you will see I am right.

The Second Be – Be Patient

Now that you are being positive, it is time to learn the second Be. You must be patient. Impatience has killed many online businesses before they even get started. I am speaking from personal experience. I failed at quite a few online endeavors before I finally stumbled onto the training that has changed my outlook.

The old saying goes ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day. Neither was any business anywhere. It takes time to build a reputation. It also takes time to execute a good marketing plan. I have an ad up right now that has over 150 clicks with 0 conversions. Now I need to take that down and figure out why so I can increase my conversions.

If I didn’t have patience, I would just quit posting ads altogether figuring they wouldn’t work anyway. But as I continue being patient and trying different strategies eventually, I will succeed and pretty soon I will be spending $10,000 on ads and making $100,000 in returns.

Remember as you move forward and try new things you begin to learn what works and what doesn’t, making you more efficient.

The Third Be – Be Persistent

How are you going to achieve your goals in business? By making sales? By selling memberships? By driving traffic to your blog? All of these options require persistence. You cannot try for a few weeks and then give up. You may have given up right before you discovered the key to closing that sale.

You need to keep pushing through trials. You need to be able to move forward without any sure signs of success. You need to persist until you make it. Then you have to set new higher goals and persist till you get them too.

I think I’ll add a fourth Be – Be Creative

A lot of people online will tell you to follow their system and you will be successful. But that can be very deadly to a new business. The reason why is simple. Let’s say I give you my best funnel that I use to convert thousands. You copy it word for word and start driving traffic. Now suppose that traffic has already seen my page and now they are seeing yours and it is Identical. They will be less likely to click through.

The reason is simple. They will see you as a copycat and won’t trust you. Now if you created your own sales funnel that linked to the same product but was worded differently, then you may trigger that one that wasn’t interested in my pitch. Perhaps you worded it differently or perhaps you changed it altogether. The point is you need to be creative. Too many copies of the same thing will just get you lost in the sea of pages. Now if you stand out from the crowd then you will get noticed and could bring in the traffic that those carbon copies are losing.

Putting it all together

If you are positive, patient, and persistent then you will be successful. If you are creative as well then you can become very successful. It takes time yes. That is where the patience comes in. However, keep persisting and add more creativity, and no matter what you will succeed.

A little personal story before I end this article

I have been searching for the truth about how to be successful in an online business for a long time. I have tried it all from MLM to Blogging to Affiliate Marketing and nothing was working. Until I found a program called Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson have built an incredible training platform and also added an awesome community feature that makes them stand out. Everything I now know about being successful I have learned within the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

I wrote a review about Wealthy Affiliate when I first started this blog. Check it out and you will see what I have known from the beginning. Wealthy Affiliate will give you the tools to succeed and help you every step of the road to achieving success.

Ok, that ends my sales pitch. After all, I am trying to be successful and persistence is one of the 3 Be’s. Anyway, the image below will take you to my review and from there you can click any of the links in my review to sign up for a starter account for free. If you have any questions or would like to share your comments feel free.

Why Growing Too Quickly is Not Necessarily a Good Thing

Why Growing Too Quickly is Not Necessarily a Good Thing

Every business owner strives for growth, but had you considered that growing too quickly could be bad for business? When a company goes through rapid growth, it can create a number of challenges that can be difficult to manage and could cause lasting damage. So, what are a few of the consequences of rapid growth?

Debt Increase

When a business goes through rapid growth, it often means that they need to spend more to keep pace. This often leads to businesses taking on higher levels of debt, which can cause problems down the line. Taking on higher levels of debt often leads to financial issues, especially if the business is not able to sustain the level of growth and maintain repayments.

Lower Quality Product

One of the biggest problems with growing rapidly due to a high-quality product is that often this level of quality is harder to sustain with higher levels of demand. Those that offer bespoke or handcrafted products may struggle to keep up with demand, which could then negatively affect the business and lead to a drop in sales. Some businesses are not scalable beyond a certain point and it is important to know where your limit is so that you can maintain quality.

Cash Flow Issues

Growth increases the rate that money comes in but also goes out of the business. This makes it harder to manage and increasing expenses puts greater pressure on the business to bring in money, which can tip the scales and put great strain on the company particularly if you have a bad month. This is why it is important to have cash reserves and a business line of credit that you can use if you encounter any cash flow issues. When going through periods of growth, it is smart to work with audit, tax and consulting advisers to help you to manage financially and achieve your goals.

Sustainability

When growth occurs at a manageable rate, it can help to take a business to new heights and bring a range of benefits. This is not always the case, though, and sometimes growth will occur so rapidly that the business no longer becomes sustainable. It can put greater strain on staff, resources and finances and even lead the business to fail.

Growth is seen as a positive in the business world and it should certainly be strived for, but you do need to make sure that your business is in the right position to grow and to try and control this growth otherwise it could lead to serious issues.

Pay Equity Best Practices

Published

Pay Equity Best Practices

The issue of pay equity has nearly become a movement, such is its sweep over the country. Make no mistake: it is going to visit your organization — if it hasn’t already. So why not get ahead of the situation? Here are some pay equity best practices.

The Issue

Women earn 78 cents for every dollar earned by a male. What’s more, women, as well as people of color, are less likely than men to hold high-level, high-paying jobs. The good news is that there are steps your company can take to narrow, if not close, the wage gap.

Clean Up Your Hiring

For one, stop asking candidates about their salary histories. In fact, many states have already put in place laws that bar employers from some inquiries. Other states are planning to do so, and for good reason: what a person made on their last job has nothing to do with whether a person can handle the position for which they’re applying. What’s more, the question perpetuates gender discrimination in pay through de facto wage suppression as employees change jobs.

So, when there’s a job opening, first determine the salary. That salary is what you’ll pay your new hire, regardless of race or gender. If you need help with pay equity best practices, you might want to contact a human resource specialist such as Mercer.  

You should also make your job descriptions and titles neutral by removing gender-specific references and pronouns and focusing instead on work-related requirements and experience. Likewise, it’s also a good idea to remove discrimination from your job screening questions so that women and people from diverse backgrounds have a fair shot at getting the job and at equitable pay.

Assess the Company Culture

Before tackling equal pay issues, you must first attend to any structural issues affecting your organization’s culture. Perhaps the company has an unwitting bias against hiring, promoting, or compensating female or diverse applicants equally. If it does, find an executive sponsor to back you on equal pay and ask them to champion company pay initiatives. You should also provide data to show how equitable pay helps retention, lowers the risk of lawsuits, and improves the bottom line. Further, be sure to include women in your hiring decisions.

Review Your Employees’ Compensation

After you’ve scrapped inequity upon hiring and have secured a sponsor to help with pay issues, it’s time to review your current payroll. You’ll need to gather data, create a spreadsheet or report, study the data for patterns, and highlight trends. Note that patterns or trends don’t necessarily mean something’s wrong – they merely show a finding that’s different than expected. 

Pinpoint Inequities

Coming across some unexpected data or trend will prompt you to look closer. As you do, ask yourself questions like, “Why are our new male IT people getting paid more than the experienced females in IT?” “Why are females making just 72% on average of what males are making?” It’s best to answer these questions yourselves before an employee files a grievance.

Correct Individual Issues

It’s a fact: hiking the pay of underpaid employees can result in a big hit to your payroll. However, two people in the same job within your own company simply must be paid equitably. Get any fixes done quickly and let the company begin to heal from uneven pay practices.

Address Systemic Issues

An effective way to ensure equitable pay is to establish a pay program that’s based on jobs and career levels. Using such a program, you can start to educate your managers about what to offer for salary hikes based on preset criteria. Also, rather than raising salaries based on managerial recommendations, consider providing measurable performance-based raises.

Now you know a lot about pay equity best practices. Don’t ignore the situation at your company.

Using presentation boxes will create a trend on the market.

Presentation Boxes

Why don’t you want to find out what most attracts the customer? It does create some mystery! Is there anything one should emphasize about their product? That’s been on my mind for some time! My conclusion is that your product needs to be unique in the industry by following some procedures. As far as I have seen, shoppers prefer products with perfect presentation boxes! You must understand the psychology of the buyers in order to create the most optimal packaging!

Presentation boxes: How are they useful for displaying goods?

Having jewels or gold items on display can be difficult. However, presentation boxes can help you achieve this objective effortlessly. This means they provide both the necessary care for your goods and the opportunity to customize their packaging so that they look great.

Design a presentation box with Prime:

It is imperative that you identify which segment of the target audience you plan to target before you start customizing your packaging. A high quality product such as a gold watch can be out of reach for individuals with low incomes. In order to make sure you are able to entice the elite class of buyers, you must customize your boxes appropriately. Adding design to your presentation box will require that your packaging expert ask you if you would like it. You must provide an eye-catching design on your packaging to make your packaging appealing to your buyers. In this way, you will be able to make your packaging more appealing to new consumers.

When choosing raw materials, make sure you do the following:

It is important to select the right material for your packaging in order to get the best wholesale custom made presentation boxes. Having the ability to customize your product allows you to choose the best material for your needs. In order to make these boxes, many companies use cardboard or corrugated board. Custom containers tailor-made from these materials provide the best durability and characteristics, making them ideal for packaging.

A number of preferences are available for add-ons.

There are many options when creating a custom presentation box, including the lid style, fabric lining, and insert. As well as customizing them to suit your product specifications in depth. Depending on your preferences, you can select from a wide assortment of ornamental accessories for your box. Adding ribbons, tissue papers, tags, and other embellishments will make a package stand out. A detailed description of the box should be provided along with the box’s dimensions and materials. A decision needs to be made regarding what components should be included on the lid as well. Moreover, you should determine your budget.

How to Put Your Thoughts into Packaging

A presentation box makes an ideal way to showcase your goods or ideas. Your item will look great in these packaging solutions, and the presentation packaging will make it stand out. If you’re arranging an event, planning a debut, or setting up an exhibition, the goal is to demonstrate the quality of your product. Presenting it well can make a significant difference in its popularity and sales. A variety of presentation boxes are available with different types of textures, shapes, and designs.

What role can wholesale packaging firms play in helping?

It is crucial to have inexpensive packaging, as I said above in the article. When choosing a presentation box manufacturer, ensure they provide wholesale services as well. You can be cost-effective and also attractive by utilizing those services! Following that statement, let’s discuss how you can receive a rate that is affordable for you. You need to have an order of 300 or more in order to qualify for wholesale! A readily affordable rate is what you will receive once you qualify!

As a bonus, you can also get some free services if you purchase presentation boxes wholesale. They will help you create attractive packaging at an affordable price, while at the same time making your package more affordable.

Graphic Designs:

Your packaging must be attractive to gain your customers’ attention if you intend to sell your goods. Graphic illustrations are one of the most important parts of packaging that makes it appealing to the eye. 

A captivating visual can have nothing to do with your product.

Further, if you choose wholesale packaging solutions, you will receive them for free. Getting free graphic design services when you buy wholesale boxes can make you more attractive and different from your competitors. In addition, they will provide you with a number of templates from which you can choose to emboss them.

Shipping:

Shipping and printing boxes are custom-made for use mainly for shipping. Since shipping and printing require the most durable materials, they use those designed for these purposes. In addition, shipping is well known to be a cost-prohibitive procedure. If you purchase wholesale presentation boxes, you can take advantage of the free shipping. So you won’t have to pay a penny for shipping, our wholesale packaging experts will ship your items for free. As a result, it would be appropriate to say that a custom presentation box can provide you with many benefits, making the packaging you use suitable for attracting and retaining customers. For your business to stand out from your competitors, I recommend you to use presentation packaging.

Several options for printing are available.

As a result of these achievements, you can create packaging for any product. Now, custom made presentation packaging is also available in various shapes and sizes, in addition to color printing. By customizing the packaging, you can create something memorable and unique. To match your favorite presents, you have access to different textures, materials, sizes, and shapes. The presents can also be custom-designed both from the inside and the outside. Inside the boxes can also have an individual design? Choose cardboard, linen satin, or fabric with a decorative border to line your bag if you want it to be sturdy. The addition of features, such as a decorative mold, makes your item more appealing.
