Author: Allison Reilly
Published: April 14, 2013 at 9:26 pm

Websites, blogs, and social media marketing strike the best balance between customer attraction and retention, according to an October 2012 survey from Constant Contact. In its survey of over 1,000 small businesses, thesmall business marketing firm also found that the tactics least effective at striking the balance were daily deals and online ads. This balance is critical as small businesses need to use their marketing dollars wisely, and if certain tactics can do both, then that’s better for the business.

[color-box]Attraction Marketing is the use of marketing techniques specifically designed to teach the customer what you are doing and how a service or product will benefit them well before they purchase it. Reverse Marketing is the same concept of Attraction Marketing. One of the most successful developers of Attraction Marketing techniques for the internet is Ann Sieg. Ann has worked more than 19 years to learn from experience and to now share her knowledge with thosethat are interested. I highly recommend.Ann’s excellent strategy document on this very exciting technology that I believe will revolutionize the network marketing industry! I consider this strategy document to be the most useful approach to internet marketing that I have read since college days! If you are serious about marketing on the internet then in my opinion this is a must read document…along with Ty Tribble‘s Blog Secrets…Ann and Ty have teamed up to bring new, successful horizons to internet marketing…no longer is it necessary to pursue in your face, harassment, do I have an opportunity for you techniques…now you can get prospects to come to you because you are attracting them…with your information, knowledge, and sincere desire to help them.

How to be successful!

Today’s Topic

We have discussed in several posts what elements are necessary to accomplish in the process of “how to be successful” in your small business. Let’s put these all together today in an understandable set of goals, plans, directions and implementations that hopefully will result in our ultimate goal of financial independence…that time when we have sufficient wealth that all our needs are met and we can live and perform wherever we choose…our office can be anywhere…including a nice beach in the Caribbean or on a mountaintop in the Carolina’s. I will start this by saying that giving up on achieving your goals is  not allowed…you may have to make changes in the way that you get there…but giving up is not an option.

First we began with your burning desire to achieve, your willingness to learn and a commitment to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Then we put together a business plan including our strategy of what we want to achieve, by when, how we are going to get there, and what resources we need to accomplish the job. Then we take inventory of our own resources and determine our strengths and weaknesses and decide where we will need mentors and guidance.  Essential to success are good business products or services which will be desired by the marketplace at affordable prices. Then we need an effective marketing plan to take your products to market. Now the execution of your plan, using the resources that you have along with the mentoring and guidance that you receive will lead you to the beginning of success on your plan. The level of success may be frustrating and challenging at first, however, your consistency and never give up attitude, along with analyzing, studying and improving your overall approach every day, will lead you to the level of performance that is acceptable to you.  Just remember, this is being accomplished successfully every day, many times by people much less fortunate and intelligent than you.              You are the master of your fate! Isn’t this a wonderful opportunity that we have?[/color-box]

Keys To Success

Topic of the day…

If you are interested in getting your business started as rapidly as possible and at the lowest cost,  then you need mentors that can share keys to success with you.  You will need key top-level mentors and a team of mentors at varying levels of expertise if you are to be successful and reduce the startup time to a minimum.  The next article by the Small Business Administration of the Federal Government estimates start-up costs of a small business at around $30,000. Frankly I don’t know many people that would even consider starting a business if it were going to cost that much. Consider getting started with  few hundred dollars or more.
