Some Very Useful Skills In The Business World

Filed under: Offline Issues,Online Issues,Strategies — manuelcrc @ 1:31 pm

In the business world, success and failure(or near success) are separated by only a few habits repeated CONSISTENTLY over time.This is a two part article series.In this post, I will be telling you three qualities that can determine your success in the business sphere. Here we go.

1. Time Management

Time management is also known by some as life management. If you can manage your time, you will definitely be able to manage your life (which of course includes your business). Knowing how you spend time on specific aspects of your business can tell how productive you are. Basically, spending more time on your most important tasks increases productivity and the other way round also applies-you reduce productivity when you spend more time on less important tasks.

The 80/20 rule explains this a great deal and it applies to almost everything in business. The rule explains that 20 percent of work done accounts for 80 percent of the results.

This can also be put as, 20 percent of the time spent in business accounts for 80 percent of the results achieved. It can also mean, 80 percent of your customers  account for 80 percent of your sales.

The trick here is to decide which task is most important to you at the moment and to do it AT ONCE. The next most important task then comes in and the order goes on.

There is no way around it-focus on your most important “few” and record great results; focus on the less important “many” and record little  results.

2. Knowing When To Say “No”

Many of us have the problem of  saying “no.” We have the feeling that by saying no, we would lose a particular customer. This feeling is of course justified and no one is left out. But insome cases, it would be very unwise to go into a deal or accept an offer. One of such cases is when you and up being the loser. In a business deal, the best situation is a win-win situation.

3. Remaining Innovative

In the world we find ourselves now, innovation rules. The world rewards innovation. Being able to come up with something new frequently is an integral part of building a successful business especially if your niche is a  highly competitive one.

Talking about the online online business world, a person or business that offers the same product over and over again with no special or deluxe version, the same form of packaging, the same advert over and over again has a very high probability of experiencing dwindling sales or losing loyal customers. They’ve purchased it all and there is nothing else to buy. The picture often ends with disillusioned customers or buyers.

The second part of this article will be posted in a couple of days. Stay cool as always.

Amazing Online Profits- Convicing People To Buy (Part Five)

Filed under: Offline Issues,Online Issues,Strategies — manuelcrc @ 12:44 pm

I’m keeping this real short because I just have to. This is the fifth installation in the Amazing Online Profits Series. Happy reading!
As you should remember from the last lesson, the overall concept of your website (and any sales messages) is summed up as A-I-D-A.

A – Attention
I – Interest
D – Desire
A – Action

You want to capture your prospect’s attention, build up his interest level to create desire and convince him to take action…now!

The most important part of the page is your headline. The purpose of the headline is to capture the reader’s attention and get him to read the 1st sentence of your sales message. The purpose of the 1st sentence is get him to read the 2nd sentence. And so on.

You need to keep the reader’s interest and bring him down the page until you’ve created enough desire that he will take action and order.

Other important parts of the sales page are:

  • listing the features and benefits
  • building the value of your product or service
  • developing your credibility
  • providing proof that what you say is true
  • crafting a flow that leads to the inescapable conclusion that your visitor must buy immediately

More posts will be written on these in the near future. But of course, you would have to come frequently to check this site as I don’t have a regular posting schedule yet.

I believe in your success,
