Will You Miss Your Golden Opportunity

Will You Miss Your Golden Opportunity

goose_golden_eggs_400_clr_11116Often in life opportunities come along but we are just too busy to notice.  We have so much going on that we pass over things that could really change our lives.  They go unnoticed and our life goes unchanged.  Our hearts remain closed to new possibilities as well as our minds.

Several times in my life I have looked back and thought if only.  If having your own home business is a desire you have.  If you have tried several things and they have not panned out.  Maybe you have given up the idea all together.  Perhaps you think it is not meant to be for you.  What we failed to see is opportunity knocks often in life.  The problem is we just do not hear it knocking.

There are many quotes about opportunity.  Almost all talk about how it comes along but we miss it because we are not listening.  Most want good things to happen, they want a life changing event to come along and they think they will see it when it comes.  Unfortunately that is not the case for many.  The opportunity has come along and they missed it altogether because they hearts and mind were closed at the time.

We have to remain watchful and mindful.  We also have to work hard once it comes upon us.  Believing that is yours without work and effort is just ridiculous.  Every golden opportunity comes with work of its own to make it shine.  We cannot just join some internet marketing company and believe that is it.  This will bring wealth.  Come on really do you believe it is like scratching off a lotto ticket and boom you will make thousands a week just by joining.golden_nest_egg_400_clr_1484

Here is the real deal.  If you work really hard and bring in a lot of other people you will make a lot of money.  When you fall for those sales pitches that say just join and within a month you will make thousands a week.  Well you get what you get when you fall for these types of statements.  Nothing worth having comes with no price at all.  That is the truth.  Hard work learning the business and understanding that recruiting people is just a small fraction of what it takes.

Learn to do what your sponsor does that duplicating how hard that is how it is done.  Joining under someone who is new to the business may not be the way to go.  On the other hand if you meet the persons sponsor and they are experienced and willing to help you both than it might be the right decision.  The point is to do your due diligence first.  Learn to duplicate what others are doing and you can have your dreams come true.  Internet marketing works, what does not work is falling for just anything.

I enjoy new people you know that best internet marketing is the one not in internet marketing yet.  So I always keep this in mind.  I love to teach and mentor others to success.  I do not believe there is just one opportunity there are many it is what you do with it that counts and who you do it with.  Have a great day.

Video Marketing, One Two Three Cut

Are You Making Yours

videoVideo marketing is a major component of successful marketing online.  I was reminded of this over the weekend while talking with a colleague.  I had been making them rather consistently than because I am not a video master and really dislike doing anything I am not terrific at I became complacent and stop doing them.  Major no no on my part yes.  You see people love videos.  They are captivated and will watch a video more often the read the written word.

Video marketing increase you email opening by 5.6% and click through rate by some 96.38% when compared to emails that contain no video.  Video also increases your SEO ranking so including video on blogs is necessary.

So what that means for us internet marketers which is anyone with a business using the internet to market their business.  Is that we need to be using video if we want to reach our audience.  Naturally reaching is our target is what we are all doing each day.  So if we are not doing videos to leverage ourselves we are missing customers.  Whether you are selling a direct product or needing signups for an MLM we need to use video in our marketing.

Having said that does that mean you have to spending all kinds of money on video?  Well the answer is no.  If you have a mom and pop shop where you are the sole owner of your business you may want to hire someone to do at least one video for you.  If you have an MLM chances are the business has a one or several videos you may use.  Once you have these though you will want to continue to engage your target audience.  Hiring someone a few times a month for fresh and new ideas would be costly.

This is where you creativity comes in.  There is a great video format for free that you really should be looking at.  This is the one I use Animoto there are others and can be found using google or your favorite search engine.  Using Animoto is fun and easy.  While talking to my colleague I went and made a cute little video in less than 5 minutes, quick and easy. http://youtu.be/mMGzb2Yg42M   With just a few pictures from your business and a selection from the video library of templates add some text and you’re ready to produce a video.  It really is just that easy.

So let me just say that no matter what skill level you may be at you can use video marketing.  One you make a few videos you can add them to your blogs and email campaigns and you will reap the benefits with increased sales.

Have a wonderful day
