Advertising, marketing and promotion are the life blood of any new or existing enterprise. Even the most well-known, brand recognizable businesses like McDonald’s and Taco Bell advertise on a regular and continuous basis. These companies do not rest on their laurels because they have ‘made it’ and close their ad campaigns because the job is done. Regardless of how successful they are monetarily, they keep the promotional fires going year after year. Given, their advertising budgets are enormous do to their financial success, so they can afford to spend the money. As a small business owner it is doubly important to have an active and ongoing ad campaign in order to attract new business and to keep the old customers interested.

Network Marketing – Building Your Business Online

Network marketing is a very exciting business to build. With the internet it is really easier than ever before. However the same concepts that have always made multilevel marketing a great business to build still apply even when you are building online.

What do I mean by the “concepts”?

Network marketing is a relationship business. Have you ever heard that? It is a very true statement. Even when you are building online it is still a relationship business. So you really need to keep that in mind if you decide to build your business online.

When building your business online how do you develop relationships? Let us begin by laying out a basic formula you need to follow to build your business successfully. The operative word there is YOUR business.

Step one is you need to understand that you must build YOUR business and that means “Branding Yourself”, in other words not build your companies business, build YOUR business. That means building your own list then developing a relationship with that list.

You must posture yourself as the leader in YOUR business. You can do this by using an auto responder and creating a list of subscribers. You need to communicate often with your subscribers and that is easy to do with the use of an auto responder. Offer things of value to your subscribers. Things like tools, training and information that will help them grow in their understanding of the industry.

If you are very new to network marketing it is very important that you educate yourself as much as possible and as quickly as possible. If you do not continue educating yourself about the business you will find it hard to offer anything of value to the people that choose to follow you in the business.

Where do you find this education? Online you will find a tremendous amount of information about any subject you can imagine, especially network marketing. Contrary to what many of the so called “Gurus” online will tell you, your up line is also a very good source of information about your specific business. Always remember that nobody has a more vested interest in your success than your sponsor and your up line.

I have found people online trying to sell their specific course on how to build a business online telling people that they should not listen to their sponsor and their up line, even things like “your up line is lying to you”… say what? That is so misleading and really such a shame. It really does not take a brain surgeon to understand that there is nobody that has a greater interest in your success than your sponsor and your up line.

So my best advice when you are looking for an education about the industry and how to build online is this: take what you find helpful and leave the rest. Realize that many people that offer training on “how to build your business online” are primarily trying to sell their course and put money in their pocket. Some of the information and advice they offer is good and useful and some of it is nothing more than a sales pitch designed to extract money from your pocket and put it in theirs.

I know that sounds like I am contradicting myself a little. So let me try and clarify that a bit. There are some really good network marketing trainers out there offering courses on the subject, there are also many people that have never had any real success in the industry and they just become self proclaimed “experts” or “gurus”. Do a little research before investing money into the educational programs you may be looking at.

I usually hesitate to recommend any specific people for this kind of training because we all learn differently and what some people may find very useful others may find a waste of time. At the same time I think if I did not at least offer one person I have personally learned much from it would be like a big tease and I really do not want to just tease you, I really want to help you succeed with your business. So I will offer a couple of suggestions. People that I have personally learned much from and trainers that offer unbiased training, in other words it is not geared

toward any specific company or generic so to speak. And people that have earned a very good reputation in the industry over the years.

In no particular order is Dani Johnson and the other is Mike Dillard. Again I recommend do your own research and due diligence before deciding where to invest your money for this kind of training.

The bottom line is become a student of the industry. If you plan to build your business online, build your own list of subscribers; offer something of value to your list and build a relationship with those people. Never forget the basics of this industry and you can have great success with your online business and network marketing.

Forex Trading Business – Dispelling the Myths Surrounding the Forex Trading Business

If your are a newbie in the Forex trading business than there are chances that besides being intimidated by the magnitude of the business that is generated in the market, you would also be boggled by some common myths or misconception rather, which assail every new comer with the blinding force. So be prepared to differentiate the myths from the reasonable empirical studies and try to understand and handle these myths with pragmatic approach.

The first myths which is nestled more by the outsider than the actual market trader is that Forex trading is something like an online casino, or is some kind of get rich quickly scheme, Nothing can be far from truth. Even as a newbie you would get to know that Forex trading is heavily reliant on market variations, performance and interaction of different economies to each other. It is only through thorough understanding of the marketplace and by educated calculations one can hope to earn some profit. And we all know that education and training are not acquired overnight. So there can’t be any thing quick or miraculously lucky about earning through Forex business. The other big misconception is that initially you need to invest huge amount of cash. This is also untrue since you can start trading even with 50 USD. That is not much.

Once you step into Forex trading you would also come to know that intraday trading is in fact not the safest way to start. Intraday basically means day trading, where a trader wraps up all trades before the close of business. But the volatile market keeps on fluctuating all day long and investing your money in short game only won’t lead you any where. It is much easier to trail the movements of currency pairs over the long term and it’s safer to opt for than the highly volatile day trading.

Another big myth is that the forex robot system software yields huge amount of profits and lead to very low risks. Just keep in mind the old saying no pain no gain -to earn more you have to work more and that too prudently. This is just a sales promotional bluff. The trader who uses the robot still has to keep track of market trends and act accordingly himself. And the last myth that I want to mention is also sort of related to forex robot software that is the use of demo accounts. Primarily this myth has been incorporated within the structure of forex business belief system just to augment the traders ‘dependency on the Forex Robot. Computer programs do claim to have the ability to trade automatically, but can one really make money by letting his computer do the business for him? To make the good business happen you have to work for it. There can’t be any other way .the software designing companies would ask you to use demo accounts and let the programme run for about one or two month and check the results yourself. In fact the minimum time frame required for gauging the efficiency and reliability of any business programme is at least two years. And while you test and try the programme, rest assured the money back guarantee would not be applied anymore.

Related to forex software is another myth involving the mathematical calculations and algorithmic equations which presumably make the forex robot accurately forecast the market trend? Even though there are some softwares in the market claim that the complex mathematical calculations can actually predict the changes in the market, they do not actually work. Mathematical calculations in the Forex Market are fortunately quite simple and unfortunately, the forex market is random and does not follow any predictable pattern and does not move on any mathematical algorithms as such. The only way to ride it out is to become discerning and intuitive and willing to take risks.

These misconceptions, pre-conceived notions and Myths can be highly dangerous not only to the newcomer but to the veteran as well, but if you take stock of the truth and try to get educated in the word of Foreign Exchange market then you can have the real chance of gaining success and satisfaction from your business.
