Wealth is in the Eyes of the Prospect

Wealth is in the Eyes of the Prospect

by: Craig Friesen

If you do any browsing of online home business sites or Internet marketing, you will surely have seen this message is some shape or form: กquit your job and become wealthy working from home…let us show you how!ก In fact, most of the people who will read this article may have promoted a product or home business opportunity with a similar sales line or a variation.

What many do not understand is that wealth can be defined in different ways. A dictionary definition of wealth is: 1. riches; large amounts of money or worldly possessions; 2. an abundance of anything.

Your typical advertisement promoting an online moneymaking opportunity focuses mostly on the first definition a large bank account and luxury items to your heartกs content.

Home business opportunities, on the other hand, tend to focus more on the 2nd definition. Here are several examples of how wealth is used as กan abundance of everythingก in online marketing:

quit your job / fire your boss (wealth = more independence and control)

work at home / work from home (wealth = more time for family and self, with flexibility of schedule)

earn extra income / need help paying the bills? (wealth = more discretionary income).

The implications of this observation for us marketers are that you can promote the same opportunity in different ways and by doing so expand your market. Letกs say you have a home business opportunity that involves selling a health product. The 2 most obvious ways to market the opportunity is to interest persons who use the product as well as those people just looking for some kind of home business. Your promotional material will be different for the 2 types of recruits one that promotes the opportunity primarily, and the other that says, กyou use the product, why not earn some money selling it to your friends?ก You could also promote the opportunity as a means to luxury the first definition of wealth. Design your promotional material to highlight the possibilities of residual income.

The point is, no matter what the opportunity, you can widen your prospective market by designing variations to your promotional material. Splash pages are a great way to accomplish this. Optimize the keywords and graphics to focus on one segment of your marketing instead of trying to attract them all. You might also want to prepare matching landing pages so tha tyour prospect doesn’t think they ended up in the wrong place.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then wealth is in the eyes of the prospective recruit. Understand what your prospects are looking for and promote your business opportunity accordingly.

Home Based Business Opportunity: Secrets Of Succes

Home Based Business Opportunity: Secrets Of Success In Home Based Business Opportunity, Exposed

by: Ikey Benney, CEO

Do you have a home based business opportunity or program?

Are you doing any affiliate program?

What type of home based business opportunity are you doing?

Are you a shining success in the home business opportunity that you’re doing?

Are you making enough money to feel financially secured?

Most people rush into a home based business opportunity for various reasons.

Some people are tired of working in jobs and desire a home based business opportunity as away to escape from the 95 job rat race.

Some other people desire a home based business opportunity so as to earn extra incomes to supplement the money they make at their jobs.

Other people desire home based business opportunity because of the comfort and freedom of working from their homes and the power it gives them to control their financial destinies.

There are some people who have gone into a home based business opportunity because they are retired and need something to keep them busy.

When the internet gold rush happened about 6 years ago, millions of average people all over the world rushed into different types of home based business opportunities because they bought the internet hype of get rich fast.

Millions of companies were born overnight and they began to offer free affiliate programs.

Millions of people signed up with the mistaken notion that just by signing up and getting a free website to promote a home based business opportunity that they will get rich over night.

This gave birth to various internet promotions and marketing.

One of the most annoying internet promotions was spamming.

This in turn gave birth to antispam activism which has almost wiped out spamming.

After 1 or 2 years, most of these millions of people who rushed into home based business opportunity had to admit failure because they were not making any money.

Their dreams of fast internet wealth were shattered.

As a way to console themselves, they started branding all and every home based business opportunity as scams.

Most will buy a home based business opportunity and after they download or receive it will claim the home based business opportunity is scam (even though they have not tried it yet and have no proof) and apply for a chargeback and a refund so as to eat their cake and have it also.

By so doing, they ripped off the sellers of these home based business opportunities.

While some of the companies that promote home based business opportunity may engage in deceptive advertising, it is not true that all home based business opportunities are scams.

Most home based business opportunities are valid and can make the buyer a lot of money.

The problem is that most people that buy home based business opportunity are not capable of doing them.

Most don’t have a clue about marketing and promotion.

Most of them buy the programs or sign up in free affiliate programs and after they get the website they don’t do any serious marketing.

A lot of these people don’t even know the difference between selling and marketing.

I have known some of these people who don’t even know how to write a simple business letter or email.

They write an email without beginning it with a salutation and at the end of the email, they don’t include their names or phone number or physical address.

When they phone you and leave a message on your answering machine, they don’t even know they have to state their names, the reason why they are calling and their own phone number and the best time you may call them back.

Most of them don’t even know how to create a folder or save a document or upload a file or install a software and yet they have signed up in 100 different affiliate programs and home based business opportunities and dream of making a million bucks overnight!

Is it any surprise that these people fail miserably?

The least that any serious business person should know how to do should be how to write business letter.

Most of the people that fail in home business opportunity have no discipline.

They have the mistaken notion that working from home and doing home based opportunity program means that they can wake up anytime they like and that they can choose whether to work or not and when to work or not.

They fail to realize that doing a home based business opportunity can be more demanding than doing a regular job.

Doing a home based business opportunity requires more discipline and competence than a regular job because you may have to do many different chores all by yourself since at the beginning you probably will be working alone may not be able to hire helpers.

This means that you may have to play many roles and do so many things all at the same time.

You may be forced to become a website designer, a copy editor, a sales person, a customer service, a spokes person, an attorney, a book keeper, an accountant, and a publisher all at the same time.

This is one of the biggest reasons why most people fail in home based business opportunity because they are unable to play all these roles at the same time.

Another reason why most people fail in home based business opportunity is that they don’t spend enough money to promote it.

To attain success in any home based business opportunity may require that you spend thousands of dollars.

It may require that you do different types of marketing.

You may have to do both online and offline marketing.

You may have to do many press releases in order to get free publicity and generate free traffic to buy your home based business opportunity.

Above all, depending on the type of product or service that you’re promoting, it may take time for you to start seeing a return on your investment and to become profitable.

Unfortunately, most people that get into home based business opportunity lack patience because they are looking for quick ways to make money.

For that reason, they don’t do enough marketing and promotion and don’t network and don’t spend enough money to generate traffic and so consequently they fail.

But when they fail, they are unable to admit that they are at fault.

Instead they blame the home based business opportunity and the company who sold it to them and label all home based business opportunities as scams.

I have not done many home based business opportunities or programs or affiliate programs because I had been lucky to discover a very easy way to make money by investing in foreign currencies (Foreign currency trading or forex trading)

Foreign currency trading is the most profitable and attractive home based business opportunity because you can do it from home or office and from any country in the world.

In foreign currency trading, you don’t need to do any marketing or selling or internet promotion to succeed.

In foreign currency trading, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to do any promotion.

In foreign currency trading, you don’t need any stocks or warehousing.

In foreign currency trading , all you’ve to do is open an account with one of the brokers with as little as $300 or $2000.

Then follow simple instructions to buy and sell the currencies.

When the price of the currency is low, you buy.

In a few seconds of minutes, the price will go up, and you sell and make a profit.

By so doing , in a day, you can easily make $500$1000 just buying and selling and trading for about 3 or 4 hrs!

And get this:

You don’t even have to be stuck behind your computer.

You can enter all your buy trades and specify the sell prices you desire and then log off.

Whenever your selling prices reach, the currencies will be automatically sold for you and you make money!

And you can do foreign currency trading and at the same time keep your day job, because in foreign currency trading, there is no work to do.

In the future when you have made hundreds of thousands of dollars, you may then quit your job and just keep doing foreign currency trading forever and go on permanent vacation!

Picture this:

In the morning, you get up from sleep at 6am.

You go to your bathroom and have your shower.

At 7am, you hurry and eat your breakfast.

At 7.20am, you login into your foreign currency trading account on the internet and spend 10 minutes to buy about 3 or 4 different currencies, [for example British Pound, Euro, CHF (Swiss Currency) and Yen (Japanese currency).]

You specify how much you wish to sell each currency.

You log off.

By 9am, you’re at work in your office or business place.

You do your job as usual and by 5pm, you’re finished and heading home.

When you get back home around 6.30pm, you login into your foreign currency trading account to see how much money you’ve made.

Holy Molly, there in your account it says you have made $750!

ขIs this for real?ข, you wonder…

$750 in a day for just clicking your mouse twice and doing no work?

(Whereas at your job, you work 8 hrs, but make only probably $160..)

This is how easy it is to make money from foreign currency trading.

But before you use real money to open a live foreign currency trading account, you have to open a free trial (demo) account and practice first, to understand how it works and to acquire the right skills.

This free demo (trial) foreign currency trading account will help you to reduce a lot of risks that can lead to loss.

In foreign currency trading, you can choose how much to invest, how much to make and when to make it.

In foreign currency trading, you can choose what type of risk you can manage, when to invest and when not to invest.

When foreign currency trading is compared to other investment programs such as stock trading, bond trading, mutual funds, real estate and regular business, it is evident that foreign currency trading is the fastest and greatest way to make money in the world.

Foreign currency trading is a 2.5 trillion dollars daily business and it is larger than all the stock trading in the world combined.

These are some of the reasons why I believe that foreign currency trading is the best home based business opportunity.

Perhaps from reading this article you’ll now come to know why foreign currency trading is the secret behind the greatest wealth on earth and why it has been kept hidden from the average people of the world and therefore little known by the masses.

May these home based business opportunity insights open your eyes to the possibility of infinite wealth and success that can be yours.

An Opportunity Called Home Business

An Opportunity Called Home Business

by: Arun Pal Singh

Opportunity has strange ways of presentation. While you may search heavily for it everywhere, it will stand there silently, waiting to be found. It will not knock your door or pat on your back to grab your attention.

It will stand there; appear in disguise waiting for you to recognize it and lift the veil from its face. It demands action from you, yet it won’t give the slightest hint of its existence. Why?

A man who seeks opportunity will eventually find one. When, how and where entirely depends on the sharpness of the seeker. Opportunities are already there. If we are not conscious, we don’t see one. Only when we start becoming conscious , we start finding one.

Recently a friend of mine critically asked me ขIf home business on the net can bring so much wealth and freedom to oneself how come everybody is not sitting at home and earningข.

He was trying to negate that money can be earned by online business. I tried to explain him about online earning but he was not ready to accept the reason.

ขI think that is wastage of time.ข He completely rejected me.

He was not conscious of the fact and he could not be subjected to reason.

Well! Then home business is not for him.

First step to find an opportunity is to believe that it exists. One must accept that it is there. Then one must become conscious of home business’ money earning potential.

When you become conscious of something you start noticing that in abundance. If you are not conscious of something you can’t see that even surrounding are full of it.

That is law of nature.

Nature has designed things in this fashion to avoid the revelation to the unprepared and thus unworthy.

The opportunity can only be used by able. One who can recognize the opportunity and acts to tap it is an able man. Other kinds either will not find the chance or let it pass without utilization.

Home business on the net has produced millionaires. Countless people started with limited resources and now earn unlimited wealth. What did they do?

They recognized an opportunity and took action. They had eyes for the opportunity and audacity for taking an action. That is what makes them stand apart in addition to the wealth they have made.

They were able.

Taking an action is second step for tapping the opportunity. Action taking is must if you want to get yields from opportunity. Otherwise the opportunity is as good as no opportunity.

Opportunity for home based business would always remain. With internet expanding at such a fast pace, potential of home business is much more than ever.

But only those seek with conviction and vision would find one.

Moreover, only those who are courageous enough to take action would find their way to enormous wealth.

People who lack conviction, courage or both will not find any wealth in the home business or for that matter anything.

Tsunami Relief Revolution

Tsunami Relief Revolution

by: Scott Riedy

Hello everyone,

I am writing you today to ask if you can take a minute or two to read the following blog. http://go4bucks.blogspot.com. There you will find more info about a new business opportunity that I have personally designed with the relief aid workers, and tsunami survivors in mind. It all boils down to the fact that if we don’t act now, it will become increasingly difficult to save a great deal of people who are now suffering with no hope for survival. The suffering is so wide spread that the relief workers are having an incredibly difficult time coordinating their efforts.

My new system will enable individuals to create their own foundations in their own names, and then promote a series of web sites that will cause people to donate to your foundation great deals of money. The stipulation is that you will publicly announce that you will give a vast majority of your profits to a charitable cause…especially the tsunami relief effort. Soon, there will be a series of websites that you will be able to glean information from to assist you in generating a sizable income from the internet. In a few weeks, thebestwaytocash.com will be ready for charities and foundations to post their ads for free, and end users like you and me will be able to find every best resource on the net for making money online.

I have teamed up with some of the best and brightest internet and programming gurus to create this one of a kind system that allows users to get and give at the same time. The end result is a charity driven, fund raising system that will provide an endless stream of support for all of those who are suffering. Almost every ad and newspaper is telling us that the best way to give is cash. That is why I have started thebestwaytocash.com which will be fully functioning by the middle of this month. If you decide to get on board right now, you can position yourself for a once in a lifetime opportunity to generate an unlimited stream of income…which you will then give to Unicef or Red Cross, or whatever charitable foundation you deem appropriate.

This is our chance to take on a task that some say is the biggest humanitarian effort we may ever see. It is time to act, so do not hesitate to discover the way to get and give at the same time. You must remember that this is for charity, and not a get rich quick scheme. If you are honest, you will get rich no matter how much you donate. Because of the multiplying nature of the internet, those who get started now will be in the best position to generate the most income the fastest. Should you wait, there is a chance that in two or three months, youกll start seeing these ads everywhere, and maybe even receive a message from someone you know telling you how much this website helped them out. So go to http://go4bucks.blogspot.com to find out more about how you can get and give all at the same time.

This opportunity is for honest individuals only. Once you join, we can track your earnings, and how much money you give to charity. If we find that you are holding the money for yourself, we will shut your system down by whatever means necessary. That will all be explained further at thebestwaytocash.com here in a few weeks. If you are honest, you will have nothing to worry about.

Those individuals that show interest in helping me personally will have a great deal of free advertising done for them, and their work will be mostly finding enough charities to give the incredible amount of money that is put into their PayPal account to. If you are interested even in the slightest, you should go to http://go4bucks.blogspot.com to learn more about how to get started. If you feel this opportunity is not for you, please help out by sending this message to everyone that you know. They will either feel like signing up, or forward the message along to everyone that they know. Either way, the help will be most appreciated. I know that you will find it in your heart to do the right thing. So many are counting on this, and when it is fully working, everyone involved will benefit. It truly is a win, win, win situation.

Thank you for reading,

Scott E. Riedy

About The Author

Give to the tsunami relief fund in the name of Scott Riedy, and get a website that you can use to make money online. Scott has publicly dedicated at least 60% of his profits to charity and more depending on the size of the response from the American people. There are lots of ways to donate, but this one gives you the opportunity to have your own funding source should you wish to start your own charitable foundation.

You may repost any of my messages as long as the text is unchanged, and the original credit is given to me. This info is for honest people only. Please refrain from spamming, copying, cheating, or lying.

May the next time we meet be in a world with no hate, war, or hunger.

Still กWaitingก In Line For Your Dream Results?

Still กWaitingก In Line For Your Dream Results?

by: Juanita Bellavance

Picture your life as a trip to a global amusement park. The opportunities surrounding you in life are the ขrides.ข At any popular amusement park, there is often a line at almost every ride or event, your learning curve. How do you handle the waiting?

Every ride or opportunity has a fantastic appeal. You ultimately want to ride everything in an amusement park, except rides you may think are too risky or too boring. Imagine yourself in line waiting for the ride you came upon first. In line you have progressed forward some and have a long time more to wait. You look up and see right over there is another ride that looks even more exciting so you go over there and get in line for it. You move forward a little in that line and just outside the que you notice the most exciting show! There’s not too much of a line for it yet so you can be near the front and get in fast, ขground level.ข That is when you notice show time arrives in about 30 minutes. While you’re waiting for show time you have lots of time to think. You realize you have just spent a few hours at the park already and have not ridden even one ride. You decide it was a mistake to leave the first one and change so you go back to the first one. While you are in the first line again, you realize why you changed to the other line in the first place and you really wanted to ride the other ride more so you change ขjust this once more.ข

Can you see how with a strategy like that you will never get to ride any ride? You could have ridden EVERY ride if you would have just seen the first one through, then had gone to the next one and the next. When you entered the park you were probably handed a map. If you had the patience to sit down and create a plan, connecting the dots for velocity of doing all or in order of favorites and stuck to that plan, you would have had time to do every single thing in the park and with no stress or frustration. You would have certainty that you would get around to each. Then, as you went along, if you did notice one ride taking way too long because of its popularity, you could have skipped it if necessary to get the most variety or you could stay all day in that one line if it were worth it.

Opportunity is like that. You MUST look around you and see the niches available. And you MUST know the niches that match your deepest core passion. If you’re like me, you can see something you like in just about any opportunity. But does that opportunity match your core passion? The first opportunity or ขrideข you take on must be the one that is the most deeply matching you to make sure you are fulfilled by the end of the ขride,ข the results. Having done this first, you will be able to ride the less compelling fun rides as well and with more joy since you are fulfilled in your deepest core of who you are.

There are people who just seem to know themselves well and know what they want very early in life. Most people don’t. They graduate from high school and even go on to college having no idea what they want their lives to be about. Are you one of those people? If so, you could wait in a lot of long lines getting almost to the mark and then falling short because you skipped the basic step of knowing yourself . Then how to move through the line with the most velocity possible to the result. You may not even know for sure what ขrideข or opportunity you even want in the sea of opportunities available.

Find the one key element to who you are first and then find the opportunity that most quickly gives you an access for expressing yourself. Then, you will save many years of ขwaitingข and will live a life of untold joy and wealth if you wish from this point forward. You are your own guarantee.

What to Look For In A Home Based Business

What to Look For In A Home Based Business

by: Nick James

Home Based Businesses are a lot like nutritional products everybody claims they have the best so who do you believe. Well here are 10 tips to guide you through those murky waters.

1. Look for a home based business in the hot areas like nutrition where there is the huge base of baby boomer customers with income to spend on your product. Don’t be fooled by some startup company with some new idea and you think you’re going to get in on a groundfloor opportunity. It ain’t an opportunity if no one wants the product. Analyze what the market is there is a reason why heavy hitters are heavy hitters they are able to accurately judge the market. 2. Check this out the home based business you’re looking at may be in a hot area like nutrition but they may be in a stagnant subarea of nutrition. You want to look for the subareas of nutrition that are the fastest growing the fastest growing is the nutritional drink or health beverage area. Most likely due to the ease of just drinking your nutrition fast and easy. So following this model the company you select in the nutritional field should have a flagship nutritional drink product.

3. Is it as startup, or established home based business company? The problem with startups is they way too often don’t live up to their obligations, go out of business, or both. Often with an established company you may have missed the best timing to get in with them. The opportunity is over so to speak. What to look for is an established reputable company poised for explosive growth.

4. Look for the credibility behind the home based business company lack of established credibility often dooms the company to go under and you’re left holding the bag and also your reputation suffers.

5. Discover a hot product before the masses do This one is big this ingredient is what often establishes the big money earners and allows people who have never made money before to make some nice incomes. Find a hot product destined to be a megaseller before virtually anyone has heard of it. Get in early and ride it for all itกs worth. This one factor alone is how most heavy hitters became to be heavy hitters in this industry. Itกs not that they are much better networkers than others, you could essentially say they were in the right place at the right time and took massive action. However, itกs a little more than that their persistence and determination in the industry has allowed them to make some nice contacts so that when the right opportunity comes along they can pull key players on board and go from there. Also this heavy hitter person usually has a keen sense of the market which allows them to pick the right opportunity and avoid all the pitfalls and fools gold of the startup companies. Nobody follows someone even if they are กกfinally rightกก about something if they have used up all their credibility on programs that never panned out.

6. This can be almost as important as a hot product The Marketing or Compensation Plan. Things to look for does the plan provide extra rewards for the upline helping those underneath them? Like with matching enroller bonuses where the upline can enroll people under individuals in their organization and earn a percentage of that persons check in bonuses. This is much better than a forced binary plan, because in a forced binary plan, people that don’t want to work get in the way and drag down others.

A bonus system like this will allow you to help the people who want a successful home based business and bypass those who are lazy and not interested.

More things to look for in the compensation plan. Does the plan pay a number of levels deep or does it stop after a few levels and the levels below this are infinity levels based upon sales volume? Also how many legs are required to maximize the pay plan? Does the plan require you to have numerous legs to earn the maximum bonuses? The point is this, a plan that only pays a few levels before infinity bonuses and/or requires numerous legs really limits the amount of upline help you will receive in other words you’re virtually on your own.

7. Get with the right distributors at the right time Years ago my wife and me sold a house. We had several options but they came down to listing the house with this relatively new agent down the street or the hotshot million dollar sales earner. We went with the latter big mistake he was so busy with his big deals he didn’t have time to mess with our little house. The house sat month after month before selling and we had already moved out of town. The lady down the street would have pushed it to the max. The point is don’t just sign up with some big name distributor because of their name they could be semiretired or too busy to give you the attention you need. The best scenario for you is to find some experienced heavy hitters who because of a hot product have just recently started marketing that product and are rapidly building their organization. This essentially allows you to not only get in on the ground floor with a hot product but also with very experienced people looking to build huge organizations. This is a case of being at the right place at the right time. All that is required of the individual is to take a lot of action.

8. Does the company have an emotional product? the point here is people talk about two things to others things that interest them and things that leave an emotional impression on them.

What Does Success Look Like?

What Does Success Look Like?

by: Rick Mills

While we are well into the 21st century too many are still thinking about their business as they did in the 1990กs.

The face of business has changed and the Internet is a BIG part of that change. Today, anyone with a connection to the Internet and the ability to choose an opportunity wisely can succeed online.

Can you see the vision?

The common thinking about doing business online says กif you have a website people will flock to your site and make you richก. Right?

Not exactly.

The key to success online is to choose the RIGHT opportunity for you. If you don’t, you could be overlooking thousands of unearned dollars and never experience the true joy a successful workfromhome business provides.

In an Internet crowded with opportunity, what does a worldclass opportunity look like?

Whether one offers products, services, or a mix of the two, all worldclass 21st Century opportunities have these five qualities in common.

1. WorldClass Opportunities Offer Products That People Want To Buy.

Notice, I did not say need.

The fact is; people buy what they WANT. If you can make them want your product, you will succeed.

When you offer what people want, your customers will return to buy from you repeatedly. That creates a foundation you can build on.

2. WorldClass Opportunities Offer Products That Reach A Wide Audience.

To succeed in the end your products must have broad appeal.

Take the กbaby boomersก as an example. This group is large, in their peak earning years, and very willing to spend. Offer what they want and the world is your oyster.

So, what do they want? Letกs think that through.

This group is aging and will continue to age. They know that and don’t like it. While the emphasis on youth and antiaging was once radical, the boomers have now made it mainstream. We see commercials on television for cosmetic surgery! Such a thing was unthinkable only 10 years ago.

Health is another passion of the boomers. They want healthy homes, healthy workplaces and a healthy lifestyle.

If you choose products that speak to the กbaby boomersก and their insatiable appetite for youth and health, youกve picked a winner.

Another example is people who work at home. The watchword for this group is convenience. Convenience sells and will continue to sell because this group wants to work on their time schedule and from their own home. They want convenience.

3. WorldClass Opportunities Are Easy To Enter And Maintain.

All too often people enter a business and then can’t maintain their active status.

Since your goal is longterm success, be careful to choose an opportunity that makes it easy to keep on succeeding. Avoid those which draw you in and then fail to support you or make it almost impossible to continue long enough to have a chance to succeed.

4. The Real 21st Century Internet Business Offers You Upward Opportunity, But Doesn’t Push.

If your goals are to throw all of your energy into your Internet business, learn everything there is to know about the product or service you offer and do more volume than anyone else on the world wide web, they will support you in that endeavor.

Hopefully, you will even have the chance to teach others your business and share in their earnings as well.

If that is NOT your goal, however, a true worldclass business won’t make you feel like an orphan or pressure you to do more than you want.

5. Support Is The Last Quality Of True 21st Century Success.

No one wants to be convinced to begin, commit their money and their time, and then find that they have no one to go to for advice except themselves.

Having someone to call on, whether by phone or email, who has กbeen thereก and can offer guidance can mean the difference between failure and success.

There is an incredible amount of true opportunity on the Internet today. As you search for your perfect business, be sure to hold your standards high and never compromise when it comes to the quality of the companies with which you associate yourself.

After all, you are loaning them your reputation, and it will be your reputation on the line.

Finding these five qualities in an Internet opportunity is the first step toward achieving 21st Century success!

Make Money In Your Own Coffee Business

Make Money In Your Own Coffee Business

by: C.S. Deam

A 2001 survey by the National Coffee Association indicated that over 100 million people drink coffee on a daily basis and that nearly 60 million more occasionally consume coffee. Based on average drinking habits, the daily coffee drinker will consume multiple cups per day totalling hundreds of millions cups of coffee being consumed every 24 hours.

Such enormous consumer demand coupled with the growing trend toward gourmet coffee presents an opportunity for the enterprising coffee lovers to take their double shots at generating income while working in an industry which makes their coffee passions percolate.

Coffeeloving entrepreneurs can choose from a wide range of opportunities available to find ones that best matches their tastes. Interested in starting small? Start with a couple machines and a cart. More grande ambitions? Consider a coffee shop franchise.

The Specialty Coffee Association of Americaกs กMarket Reportก forecasts that the number of coffeehouses in the U.S. will grow to 15,000 by the year 2006. Will one of those coffeehouses be yours?

You can take a couple different paths can to starting your own coffee themed business. One option is to buy the equipment and supplies yourself, building your own identity and business systems. The other option is to purchase a franchise and benefit from their proven image, proven systems, and established supply chains. Letกs look at some examples of coffee related businesses that you could start for yourself.

If you choose the independent route you can use a wholesaler such as Mr. Churroกs to help get you started. Mr. Churroกs is Miamibased wholesaler of professional grade machines for making espresso, coffee, and hot chocolate. Beyond acquiring equipment from Mr. Churroกs you would need to work out other details of your business details on your own. For example, you would need to find a coffee bean supplier, find a suitable business location, and also learn how to run a coffee business.

For a more turnkey type of operation, The Coffee Beanery, a global franchise based in Michigan, provides franchisees with a wide menu of coffee based drinks as well as an attractive breakfast and lunch menus. The franchisee benefits from a proven image, a proven menu, a fully developed method of operation, and an established supply chain. It might cost more to purchase a franchise, but if you are new to business, the long term benefits might outweigh the short term higher startup costs.

Coffee News USA is a third type of coffee related business opportunity. Unlike the previous two examples, Coffee News USA does not involve making and selling coffee beverages. Instead, Coffee News is publishing opportunity in which the franchisee provides a free local edition of the weekly Coffee News newspaper to restaurants and coffee shops. The franchisor provides most of the content, and the franchisee sells advertisements to generate income.

These three business opportunities a just a few of the coffee related businesses that are available for coffee lovers. Most of the other opportunities are franchises, but not all franchises are created equal. Examining each business opportunity carefully can bring to light some important differences that might lead you to an opportunity that is better suited to you than another.

With over 300 million cups of coffee being consumed daily in the US, a coffeerelated business opportunity should be a strong consideration for the enterprising coffee lover. Contact information for Mr. Churroกs, The Coffee Beanery, Coffee News USA, and more than 400 other specific business opportunities is available in the eBook, กMind Your Business 101: How to Select & Start Your Own Business,ก for only $16.98 USD at www.LinkertonPublishing.com.

An Overlooked Fr~e Advertising Opportunity

An Overlooked Fr~e Advertising Opportunity

by: Terri Seymour

When you have an online business you need to utilize every possible avenue of advertising and promotion. As I sign up for more ezines and discussion groups, I am finding numerous publishers are overlooking a very effective and fr~e advertising opportunity.

After I sign up for an ezine or email discussion group, I await the welcome letter for guidelines and to learn a bit more about the ezine/website/webmaster. Too often all I get in the welcome letter is the standard default letter. No personal welcome, no introductions, no links to check out and no email.

This disappoints me as I always like to check out the sites of the people I am signing up with. It almost makes me want to unsubscribe…….almost. 😉 But I know that some publishers may just not know that you can take advantage of this advertising opportunity. I also didn’t know of such opportunity when I was first starting.

So, by writing this article, I hope to make publishers and listowners aware of this fr~e advertising.

Whether you use Yahoogroups, Topica or a list manager that you have purchased, you can change the welcome message. Personalize it by introducing yourself and letting the subscriber know about your website/business.

Inform them of any specials you might have.

Tell them your advertising rates and add a testimonial.

Invite them to your site to utilize the fr~e resources.

Let them know your email so they can contact you.

Use some of the space for ad swapping with other publishers and their welcome letters.

Add an affiliate product or program review.

There are numerous things you can promote with your welcome letter. Also, do not overlook your goodbye letter. You have one last chance to get this person back. Make it a good one. 😉

I also have a little message in my goodbye letter that encourages people to let me know why they unsubbed.


Thank you for being a subscriber to My Own Ezine. I am sorry to see you go. If you could take a minute to let me know why you unsubbed, I would appreciate it. Please drop a quick note to mailto:ter02@newnorth.net?subject=unsub Thank you.

You might learn ways to improve your ezine by asking former subs this question. Of course, they do not all answer, but a good many do! Always reply to them with a short but appreciative thank you note!

I also promote many of the same things as I do with my welcome letter. By doing this you just might get this person to think……..กMaybe I will take one last look and see what they have.ก

In this business, you have to utilize every opportunity possible and this FR~E advertising could turn out to be a golden one!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Choosing The Right Affiliate Program

Choosing The Right Affiliate Program

by: Mal Keenan

Choosing the right affiliate program is vital for your success. We don’t want to end up with lemons, right? It is not advisable to invest time and effort into something that will not yield the best return for the energy expended.

In this lesson, we’re going to learn how to distinguish an excellent affiliate program from a rather mediocre one. Yes, indeed. Not all affiliate programs are created equal. Some are simply better than others. Here are some things you need to think about if you are considering entering the affiliate marketing arena:

* How much is the commission rate being offered by the affiliate program? Ideally, you would want a high commission rate. Who wouldn’t, right? But don’t let this mislead you into thinking that a high commission rate is equal to a good home based business opportunity. An affiliate program that offers 80% commission per successful sale, for example, may also ask you to presell products that aren’t really sellable. What good is an 80% commission then when you won’t have any sales to speak of? So this leads us to our next consideration…

* How sellable is the product? You could always ask for statistics from the affiliate program. Don’t forget that. You could demand to see the sales chart for the past few months, so that you’d know that there are people who are actually willing to purchase the product. We can safely say that an affiliate programs offering high commission rates for very sellable products is an excellent opportunity.

* How credible is the affiliate program? There are many things that should be factored into this consideration. Determine how long the program has been operating. If they have been in existence for a long time with nary a complaint that can be seen, then they must be doing something right! Do a search on Google or online forums to check out other affiliates opinions of your prospective business partner.

* How will you get paid? This may be a little too prospective a thought, but you have to ensure the utmost viability of any money making opportunity. What payment method can you accommodate? Will the affiliate program be able to oblige to such method? If the affiliate program pays its affiliates through PayPal exclusively, for example, and you’re living in a nonPayPal territory, then you might encounter some problems. Ask the affiliate merchant if he could make some considerations for your case. More often than not, he will try to accommodate your request. If he can’t, then your time would be better spent with an affiliate program whose payment you would actually receive.

If the above considerations are all favorable for you, then grab the said opportunity as quickly as you can. Start earning money right away, for time is gold in this business!

In the next article, we’re going to discuss the proper steps you should take in starting out with this type of home based business opportunity.
