I have been building successful businesses for close to 20 years. Over the past 5 years I have built www.label-land.com from scratch, into a very profitable online label company. The purpose of this last venture was to set the stage to become a business consultant.
As much fun as I have creating my own businesses, I find than I experience greater joy when I can help others get what they want.
To this end I have set a goal to help 20 people achieve a greater level of success in 2008.
Though not limited to it, I have decided to suggest a Direct Marketing business as the platform for this project. The reason for this is that, when you look beyond the negative stigma created by poor marketers, you see a very practical and useful system.
What DM businesses offer is a fully functioning back end. All you have to do is market the product and they do the rest; Automated order taking, billing, shipping, customer service, accounting, etc.
Often when people are introduced with an “Opportunity” they are told how easy it will be, only a few hours a week, no cold calling necessary. It business terms we call this “A Load of Doo Doo (I don’t use fowl language)”
Here is the reality…
If you want to succeed you will have to;
* Work – Expect to work on your success a minimum of 15-20 hrs/week
* You will have to speak to potential customers. – Not necessarily people you know
* You will have to invest money – I will show you how to keep your investment small.
* You will have to think outside the box.
* You will have to expect setbacks.
* Have Fun.
* Be a team player.
* Be willing to share.
* Did I mention WORK.
Over the next 2 weeks we will begin to get things under way.
In the meantime you can look at the DM project that I am currently working on at www.agel.com
and sign up for a free E-book “The 7 Lies of Network Marketing.”
The e-book page is very infomercial style. Look past it and use your thinking cap to take out the wisdom.
