9 Free Tools I Cannot Do Without

There’s nothing quite like getting something you want, need, or can make good use of. That’s especially true when the item is free, absolutely free.

I mean no out-of-pocket cost. Nada bucks. It costs you nothing. That’s free. You don’t have to sit through a boring, lengthy webinar. Or give up your email address and go through numerous up-sell pages. Free is best when you go to a website and get the goods.

Well, here’s my gift to you today. These free tools serve me well. They are useful and I use them often. You can upgrade to paid versions if you wish. I’ve done that when absolutely necessary. Otherwise I go with the free version. Click on the name and go directly to the web site.

Can You Actually Make Money While Sleeping?

You can make money while you sleep.

Sure, you can make money online while you sleep. Many of us do. However, you will not do that immediately by buying some big-promise money-making software or signing up to a money-making program.

Either of those things usually make money only for the people selling them.

Those who make money while sleeping have built businesses that generate income over different time zones all hours of the day. They are affiliate marketers, usually. That’s the easiest method for getting into an Internet business.

Others may be part of an enterprise like MOBE (My Online Business Enterprise). MOBE is a franchise operation. Just like buying a fast food franchise you buy into MOBE and make that a foundation for your Internet business.

I recommend that you learn more about both methods – affiliate marketing and MOBE. Each benefits from a common skill set that’s easy to put into motion.

MOBE is unique and very successful. Learn more by clicking on this link. MOBE guides you through many aspects of making money online with a personal coach, 21-step training program, and many opportunities to meet other members of the MOBE family at local functions and exotic locations.

EASY TRAINING TO INCREASE SALES REVENUE

 

It’s easy to get your sales people beyond product bullet points.  Here’s a simple method I used when Director of Marketing and Sales at a networking division of a major aerospace company.

When creating a telemarketing center with out call people very skilled in selling by phone we quickly learned, the sales prompt sheets did not cover information the customer wanted.  Many businesses fall prey to this trap.  That is telling the customer what we think is important rather than share what the customer wants to know.

We solved the problem and elevated in house-sales morale by having staff record questions they could not answer.  Our engineering Read the rest of this entry

How to Create Content That Works

 

I read an article about creating content ‘people will love’. It’s great if people love your content. But I’d rather have content that works.
 
Content that works for me is content that achieves its purpose. Make sure you understand what you want to achieve with your content. What’s the purpose?
 
Does the content match your ideal customer’s expectations? Are you solving a problem? Does the content solidify your relationship with your ideal customer?
 
I once managed marketing for a technology company driven by an engineering mindset. We tried to sell whatever the engineers dreamed up. Rather than making what we could sell the company tried to sell what it could make.
 
One product was exceptional and spectacular.  We launched at a major trade show and prospective users jammed our booth. Everyone immediately  understood the product and wanted to play with it. They loved it.
 
Very few bought it. It didn’t solve a real problem. The investment in creating and launching a very innovative product was a total waste.

Why People Don’t Make Money Online

start a business I help people make money online. I prefer helping people wanting to start and run an Internet-based business. Sure, I offer assistance to those chasing “the dream” of fast riches and quick returns with little work. However, my goal is developing a sustainable business I can operate anywhere I have an Internet connection.

The wife and I enjoy travel and spend as much time as possible away from our California home base. Wherever we go I have my laptop along and usually put in a few hours a day working online. It’s easy to do because I enjoy working at my online business. I usually awaken earlier than most and put in a couple of productive hours before others are up and about.  There’s always something to do to advance my business position.

The number one reason many people don’t make money online is they don’t ask for the order.
