Why Do Home Based Businesses Use Attraction Marketing

The concept of owning a home based business either scares people away or embraces people to own one. Owning your own business gives you the freedom of time and money. You are giving you back the quality of life that only people dream of. Most people are afraid of failing because the fact is that a lot of people do fail. Statistics are that 97% of the people who own a home based business fail. Is it because it doesn’t work? No. It is because no one has ever showed them the way or they just gave up.

A home based business requires work. Some of the work that you are expected to do is to listen to your mentor, follow instructions, work every day, be dedicated, consistent, and focused. Now this isn’t easy because we all lose sight of our goals. You must have a positive attitude. Read the rest of this entry »

10 Ways Personal Branding can Save Your Job


Times are tough during this recession. You hear stories all the time of people losing their jobs, companies need to cut back, or jobs are just being eliminated. What can you do about it? Well, personal branding is the solution. Personal branding is the process by which you can market yourself to others.

Marketing yourself today is so different of how it was done just a couple of years ago. Personal branding today is done through social media. It is like having your own television show where the audience is unlimited. You are now empowered to let the world know about you and all you have to invest is your time.

Here are 10 tips of how you can personally brand yourself from Dan Schawbel’s article “10 Ways Personal Branding Can Save You From Getting Fired”:

1. Become an invaluable asset to your colleagues, professional network & clients

The first people who get laid off are the ones that are not needed for business to be conducted. If the business depends on your services and expertise, then you will, more than likely, remain in your current position, despite the economic climate.

As a social networker, you need to keep in touch with your friends, family and business contacts and provide them with any resources or help possible. As a business owner, it’s your job to convince your clients that they are benefiting from your services and are getting good ROI. The best way to keep in touch with your network is to import your contacts into LinkedIn , Facebook and Twitter , so you can provide them with valuable information over time.

Can You Really Join Too Many Social Networks?

You want to start marketing yourself through social media but you are not sure which one you should use. Can there be too many to use? Which one should you choose?

The main problem is that if you join every network there is, you will be spreading yourself too thin. How are you going to be able to manage all the accounts? You can’t, unless you hire someone to help you. Most times, this is not possible. Pick the social network that interests you. The one thing you don’t want to do is to pick a network that feels like another job. Remember they call it “social” media for a reason. Pick one where you are socially comfortable.

Dan Schawbel is the author of Me 2.0: Build a Powerful Brand to Achieve Career Success and publisher of Personal Branding Magazine and the Personal Branding Blog. Here is an article entitled “Twitter, Facebook, Digg: Can You Join Too Many Networks?” where Dan Schawbel best describes how to pick a social network; where it is easy to use and will make your personal brand visible on the web.

A social network is only as strong as the amount of people that are a part of it

Think about it, if a message board has no messages or a blog has no comments, the likelihood that you will be the first to contribute is slim. If there is no one to interact with on a social network, then why join? If people in your location aren’t using it, then it makes no sense to join as well.

Facebook has over 110 million users, MySpace has close to 200 million users, LinkedIn has over 30 million users, and Twitter has over 5 million users. It’s safe to bet that joining a social network with millions of users is the way to go because there will be many people you already know on them. Also, a large volume gives you the ability to share your brand with many people, instead of just a few.

How Social Media Marketers Can Convert Attention Into Action

Guest Blogger – Brian Solis

According to a recent report, while upwards of 70% of businesses are said to operate under a formalized social media strategy, many plans don’t include measurable goals. Gimmicks, viral videos, and creative campaigns aside, social media marketers must learn to introduce “clicks to action” and outcomes that steer consumer experiences toward desirable results.

Engagement through conversation is a start, but reaching people where their attention is focused and compelling them to take an action is powerful. Clearly defined objectives and milestones, combined with a little conversion science, will increase the value of engagement and drive desired outcomes.

Conversion Science: Actions Speak Louder Than “Likes”

As social networks are rooted in conversations and connections, denizens are open to the idea of business participation as long as they do so authentically and transparently. Talk is cheap however, and actions speak louder than words. As such, the opportunity to convert attention into impact is largely untapped. Many of the celebrated examples in commercial social media have yet to define what it is that they hope to accomplish and measure beyond conversations, views, comments, RTs, Likes, and the population of their “tribe.”

How to Build the Perfect Virtual Social Media Resume

The time has come where you need to get your resume together and passed around. Social media is the perfect platform for your resume. More and more executives are turning to the internet to search for applicants to get jobs filled. Why? It’s cheaper for the company than to hire head hunters where they would have to pay a commission.

When you look for a job that is posted online, there is a problem that most of those jobs are already filled or don’t even exist. So doesn’t it make sense that while you are looking for a job on the web, there might be an employer searching the web for the perfect candidate? Think about this, that person could be you if you are branding yourself correctly by using a virtual resume.

In an article “How To: Build the Ultimate Social Media Resume”, written by Dan Schawbel, he wrote the following:

Social media has allowed us to reverse the recruiting process. Instead of submitting our resume, it becomes a billboard that can be shared, distributed to hiring managers, searched and more. In one sense it showcases your talents and what you’re looking for in a job and in the other, recruiters become attracted to it and will approach you with the opportunities that you desire.

Here is the social media resume process: Read the rest of this entry »
