Choosing a Niche

I’ve been wrestling with choosing a niche for a while, so I thought I’d write on it. You may find something interesting and relevant to your own struggles. I’m hoping this helps in choosing a niche for yourself.

When you work for yourself, you have the freedom to choose what you do. That freedom is a double edged sword. Since you are “in charge” you can laser target opportunities that work or you can wander in the desert for 40 years.

Choosing a niche

Let’s Make Money Together!”

Opportunity lies Straight Ahead
Opportunity is Straight Ahead – Don’t Turn Now

 

Choosing a Niche

In a previous post I talked about Evaluating Home based Businesses. (Click here to read)

This post looks at a part of the same topic – but from inside you.

 

Let’s start with some basic assumptions.

  • Choosing a niche is critical – targeting everyone means that you don’t appeal to anyone.

  • Choosing a niche involves be profit – spending your “business time” on something that can’t make money is a waste of time. (If this is a hobby, then go for it, but I’m assuming this is a business.)

What else is there?

Well, this is YOUR home business, it should be FUN for YOU!

Let me give you an example. I lost over 90 pounds
on a weight loss program my network marketing company
provides. This is a dynamite program and the only one that
ever worked for me. Weight loss is profitable and it is sure
possible to target sub-groups and create niches within
the group of people who need to lose weight.

But is that what I want to do when I grow up? – Not really!

How Do I go about Choosing a Niche?

So what it fun for me?

  • Reading Science Fiction – probably not a profitable area for me

  • Playing guitar and singing – definitely NOT a a profitable area for me

  • Spending time with my wife – probably not a profitable area for me

  • Working with computers and teaching people – ????

Okay, the last one has some possibilities.

I have already decided to help people in my primary network
marketing company learn how to recruiting on-line. Now I just
need to figure out how to target new people and help them learn
1) the value of network marketing (leverage) and 2) how to do
network marketing recruiting on-line.

As I look at this niche, it is still too broad, but it is a start. I can have fun,
be profitable and define a narrow niche.

Choosing a Niche – One of your most Critical Decisions

How To Evaluate Home Based Businesses

How To Evaluate Home Based Businesses

Evaluating home based businesses can be daunting and just a little scary. After all if you are going to throw part of your life at something you would certainly like to know that you have a good chance to succeed. How To Evaluate Home Based Businesses

Let’s Make Money Together!”

Opportunity lies Straight Ahead

Opportunity is Straight Ahead - Don't Turn Now

 

Evaluating Your Home Based Business

Let’s look at how to evaluate home based businesses.
This is a an important decision and you need to do your due
diligence before you dive into anything.

Let me start by dividing the task into two categories.

Jobs

If you need cash today – you are going to have to find a JOB.
Typically these won’t pay much, since the employers have a
large pool of desperate people, especially now. The income
is immediate, but it is small and will remain small.

Businesses

The title was “Evaluating Home Based Businesses,” but many
people see “working from home” as being an “employee at home.”
When you change this to “Running My Own Business From Home”
the potential for large income is there, but it won’t be
quick.

You can absolutely run a real business – from
home. You just need to find the right one and you will
need some time, energy and money to make it work.

The Cash Flow Quadrant

Robert Kiyosaki (a best selling author and management consultant)
wrote two famous books “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and “The Cashflow Quadrant”
where he divided “how we make money” into four categories.

  • Employees

  • Small Business

  • Large Business

  • Investors

Most people spend their lives in the Employee category.

It is extremely logical to feel that people in the Employee
category should look into move “up” to the Small Business category.

That’s what we are going to talk about here.

And it would see that moving into the Large Business category
is virtually impossible for the “work at home” entrepreneur.

Nothing could be further from the truth. It just isn’t obvious.

Hours for Dollars

One of the main points in Mr. Kiyosaki’s books was that Employees
and Small Business owners have no leverage. They trade hours
for dollars, their income grows linearly (if it grows at all) and
when they stop working the money STOPS.

A Closer Look at Small Business

A Small Business depends heavily on the owner. This person
is critical to the income of the business. For example, if you
are a consultant, you may make good money per hour, but your income
is still limited to the number of hours you can personally get
paid for. And if you are sick or on vacation, your income stops.

Think about a small doctor’s office. It is a brick and mortar
establishment and when you there are several employees. These
employees are EXPENSES, not assets. If the doctor is not there,
the amount of income producing activity that can be done is extremely
limited.

Besides the problem of linear income Small Businesses have several other
inherent weaknesses – most of them have to do with capital and time.

Evaluating Home Based Businesses – Looking at Big Business and Investing?

Obviously if we are honestly evaluating home based businesses,
it takes a lot of money to move into the Investor
category, so we will not spend any time looking at this.

When he was evaluating home based businesses, Mr. Kiyosaki defined
Big Business as one where you can walk away for a year and the
business would still generate a significant income for you.

The Big Business and Investing categories are where you have
leverage – other people are working and you benefit from their
efforts in a way that you are NOT the total lynchpin for your
business. Napoleon Hill is famous for his quote: “I’d rather have
1 percent of the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent of my own effort.”

He was talking about a system where people made money for you, even when
you weren’t there.

Incomes on these categories do NOT have to be linear. They can double,
triple or quadruple. This is possible through leverage.

Let’s Look Closer at Big Business

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki co-authored an article in Success Magazine
where the stated that in order to run a leveraged business (Big Business)
you need a SYSTEM. The system allowed the business to run WITHOUT the
owner’s constant attention.

The authors concluded that there are three ways to obtain a viable system.

1. Build your own (most people who do create a system, fail several times before they get
it right.)

2. Buy a system. This is what Franchises are all about. Now the average
decent sized franchise costs $150,000 and you contract to give up a percentage
of you gross. You DO get a proven system and corporate support.

3. Buy INTO a system. This is Network Marketing. These companies
have the same benefits as a Franchise, without the large initial investment
and the requirement to payout a percentage of the gross revenues.

Evaluating Home Based Businesses

Interesting Tidbits – Backlinks, Competitive Pages and More

Here are a collection of interesting and useful tips and tricks if you are marketing on the web and doing keyword research.

Interesting Tidbits - backlinks, Competitive Pages etc.

Let’s Make Money Together!”

Opportunity lies Straight Ahead

Opportunity is Straight Ahead - Don't Turn Now

 

Here are some interesting items – enjoy

How many pages are you actually competing against?

Alright, we all know that when we Google
our keywords, we get hundreds of thousands
(or maybe millions) of pages (the number at
the top of the screen.)

The question is how many of those are real
and how many are duplicates or contain just one
of your keywords?

Try this……

Google for you keywords – in quotes -
lets say “Orlando Travel”

When I ran this I got 2,180,000 pages.

WOW – that’s a LOT of competition. But how
much of it is real?

Here is the address bar after I submitted the search
https://www.google.com/search?q=”Orlando+Travel”&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Go to where it says “Orlando+Travel”&
and replace everything<br>
after the the & with  Start=900

Then press Enter.

When you scroll down the new listing, at the bottom<br>
It will say something like:

In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 758 already displayed.

758 – still a lot of pages, but much
easier to compete against than 2,180,000.

Great Example of Backlinks

If you want to show someone how backlinks work
Google for “Click Here”.

The number one page is the Adobe Reader download
page. Thousands of sites have “If you need
the Adobe PDF reader Click Here” on them.

The page certainly isn’t about “Click Here”, it
just has thousands of backlinks. :)

Do you need some VERY authoritative backlinks?

EDU sites are given a LOT of weight by the search
engines, so a link from one is very good juice.

You can create this juice. Google for this:

site:.edu inurl:blog -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “post a comment” “Key Words”

Replace “Key Words” with your key words. This should give
you a list of somewhat relevant blog posts that are
open to you making a nice comment and putting a
link to your own post as part of your signature.

Bingo – one EDU link.
I hope you find this tidbits useful!

Interesting Tidbits – Backlinks, Competitive Pages and More

Looking at Network Marketing? The ONE Question You MUST ask!

I’m serious, there is one question you MUST ask and I for one missed it for years!If you have looked at network marketing companies in the past (perhaps even been in one) or if you are looking at network marketing for the first time, there are some questions you need answers for. I have expanded my list over time and I still missed the most important question of all.

Network Marketing One Question You Must Ask

Let’s Make Money Together!”

Opportunity lies Straight Ahead

Opportunity is Straight Ahead – Don’t Turn Now

 

Looking at Network Marketing? Due Diligence Questions

Here are some of the standard questions:

  1. Is the company a start up? – they usually fail

  2. Is the Management Team Stable? – instability is a sign of “blowing in the wind”

  3. Is the company debt free? – this is a sign that things are well managed.

  4. Is the compensation plan stable? – Many companies change things and top earners are suddenly making a fraction of what they made before.

  5. Is the company Profitable? – seems like a basic question. So many go under and you have to wonder why.

  6. Is there a system for good and inexpensive training? – some companies make their money selling workshops and training materials – and the distributors foot the bill.

  7. Is the company reputable? – again an obvious question, but there are companies out there right now being sued by the government – not where you want to be.

  8. Is the company growing? – again these are very basic and obvious questions.

Is the company dynamic? – some companies are not changing with the times.

I could go on, but you get the picture.

None of these are THE Critical question

Here are some second level questions

  1. Why should I work with the person sharing the business? What do they do for their team? – After all most people join a person – not a company

Or

  1. Is the compensation plan designed to encourage partners to help each other since they make a larger profit when they do?

Neither of these are THE CRITICAL Question

In this video I talk about THE CRITICAL Question

 

 

HERE IT IS

What do you do to get your prospects to find you?

If the company is teaching 1) build you list, 2) learn to contact your warm market, 3) add people to your list every day…… they are old school.

You really need to be working on-line. THERE ARE PEOPLE LOOKING EVERY DAY! Our chances of success are MUCH higher when we work with them. Rather than weeding through hundreds to find one of them – let them find you. If you want to see how Click Here

Looking at Network Marketing? The ONE Question You MUST ask!

Market America – Isotonic Delivery of Supplements – What’s the Big Deal?

Why is “Isotonic Delivery” of a nutritional supplement important to you? Isotonic Delivery OPC-3

Let’s Make Money Together!”

Opportunity lies Straight Ahead

Opportunity is Straight Ahead - Don't Turn Now

 

Isotonic Delivery

When we stop to think about it, we all know
that when we take a nutritional supplement
or a medicine for that matter, there are a
couple of important things.

  • The substance must do what it is supposed to do

  • The particular bottle we take must
    contain what the bottle says it contains

  • Sometimes we even get technical enough to
    consider that amount we are taking is enough
    to be effective.

I could use the fancy words, but you get the drift.

We don’t usually think about the “delivery system.”

Doctors DO! They give us shots because that is
the most effective method of getting a substance
into our blood stream.

Short of getting a shot, we usually take pills,
capsules, caplets and sometime liquids.

Lets start with the various forms of pills.

We all know that there is acid in our
stomachs. What do you think that acid does
to the supplement we are taking?

I’ll tell you…

It destroys a portion of it. That’s what!

IF THE ACID EVEN GETS TO THE SUPPLEMENT

For many people, their stomach acid is not
strong enough to get through the coating of
the capsules. The pills pass right through you
and the only one who benefits are the people
who got you money. There is a picture of an x-ray
going around (you can find it on Google) that shows
three vitamin pills in a person’s digestive system.
One from today, one from yesterday and one from the
day before. None of them were dissolved.

You can also find stories about sewage systems being
clogged with undissolved pills.

In addition to dissolving problems, there are
issues with the contents of pills and capsules.
There are fillers and binders, many of which
you might not want. Check the labels. You will
find Talc listed more often than not.

Last, but certainly not least when you are not
working with Isotonic Delivery, you are automatically
forced to wait for the pill or capsule to dissolve.
Even when they do dissolve, you may be waiting
up to four hours to the relief you want NOW!

Being Liquid does NOT mean Isotonic Delivery

What about liquids? you may ask.

There are mechanisms in the stomach
that test any substance that reaches the stomach.
If the substance has the right ph and the right
osmotic pressure to pass into the blood stream
it is passed on to the lower intestine, when it
is absorbed.

Isotonic delivery means substances
that meet all the criteria to leave the stomach
immediately. Just being liquid does NOT mean
that a substance will be allowed to leave the
stomach immediately. And if it stays in the
stomach, acid will deteriorate it.

Market America’s Isotonic Delivery

Isotonix products come in powder form and,
when mixed with water, become isotonic solutions.

The result is the nutrients are delivered efficiently
and rapidly. There are no fillers or capsules,
so the time and work necessary to absorb Isotonix
nutraceuticals is greatly decreased. There are
studies that show as much as 95% of the effective
ingredients are in the blood stream within seven
minutes.*

*Just to be safe I’ll include the standard phrase
These statements have not been evaluated by the
Food and Drug Administration. This product is not
intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Not that the Food and Drug Administration
evaluate any statements about supplements.

Why is a formula with Isotonic Delivery better than a standard multivitamin?

Isotonix formulas are more effective than standard
multivitamin formulas because they offer the best way
to get the maximum delivery of vitamins and minerals
into the bloodstream.

Market America’s Isotonix formulas are also the fastest
and most effective ways to receive multivitamins. The
stomach has very little work to do because the pH and
tonicity are carefully designed to allow the stomach to
quickly release all the nutrients into the small intestine.

With the Isotonix formula, this process takes about five
minutes, where a standard tablet can take up to four hours.
