10 Rules for Small Business Success

by Rahimah Sultan

 

photo from blog

 

As a new entrepreneur you need to follow certain rules for small business success. You need to quell the enthusiasm a bit and focus on starting out right to avoid later disappointment.

 

Here are 10 of the most important rules for small business success:

 

1. Start small and grow. Don’t try to sell to everyone. You need a niche – a specific product or service so that you’re not competing with everyone.

 

2. Concentrate on what will be the bread and butter of your business. Don’t try to implement all your entrepreneurial ideas at once. You can branch out later.

 

3. Make sure you have a product or service that customers really want.

 

4. Develop a business plan that forces you to think through the basic elements of your company, i.e. your market, competition, industry and your position.

 

5. Know your customers. If you have a clear target market you can be much more effective and efficient in both your product development and marketing efforts.

 

6. Build one business at a time. Concentrate on one new direction, product or service, one target market or one distribution channel at a time.

 

7. Don’t re-invent the wheel. Get a piece of an existing market. Creating a market for a brand-new type of product or service is difficult, time-consuming and expensive.

 

8. Double the estimate of the time and money you originally think you’ll need. Things cost more and take longer than planned.

 

9. Keep things short and use lots of photos. People don’t like to read.

 

10. Build strong customer relationships. People like to do business with those they know, like, and trust.

Multi-Level Marketing: Your Approach

by Rahimah Sultan

 

photo from blog

 

Multi-level marketing has gotten a bad reputation, partially due to a lot of confusion about legitimacy. Although structured almost exactly like a pyramid scheme, it is legal. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business that involves the exchange of money, usually in the form of a sign-up fee, and usually has no product or service.

 

Check what the Better Business Bureau has to say about the company and the guide if it’s nutritionals.

 

This business is not for everyone. Is your up-line helpful and caring? Are you team spirited?

 

Another part of the multi-level marketing reputation is due to a marketer’s approach.

 

When promoting your product or service, don’t be pushy. Just be there when someone is ready to try your offer. If you’ve researched the company and are pleased, educate people on the benefits of using the products or services. You can do this in several ways; physical meetings, online webinars, videos, etc., showing how you are benefiting from using the products or services.

 

Do not make outrageous income claims or promise people that you will build their business. That only adds fuel to the fire of the bad reputation.

 

In order to be successful in MLM, you need honesty and integrity; not lies and pushy tactics. And you should care about your team.

No Free Rides in Business

by Rahimah Sultan

photo from blog

 

I think most people realize there are really no free rides in life. This especially applies to business. You cannot get something for nothing. There are so many unscrupulous people trying every way possible to take your hard-earned money by daily touting free websites, automatic money machines, turnkey businesses and systems, your own branded website and on and on. There are no free rides in business. By using one of those sites or systems, you generally have no control. If they disappear so goes the business.

 

When my son was a teen, he pleaded with me to help him get a JVC player for either his Birthday or Christmas. Some of the details have faded from my memory. I do recall saying something like that’s a lot of money for something that probably won’t hold your interest for very long. It was a challenge being a single parent of two children and having to be really careful with my money.

 

My son has always been very industrious and worked part-time jobs as a teen. He offered to help pay for it, but since this was something he wanted so much, more so than anything before, I got it for him. He loved that player, and it was the beginning of a “paying” hobby for him as a DJ before joining the Air Force.

 

Early in his military career he was stationed in Germany, at Ramstein Air Force Base where I spent a month with him, just before the United States became involved in Iraq, in 2002, not knowing if I would see him alive again after that. I am very happy to say, although he went through a lot in his 23 plus years of active duty, he came out alive and well.

 

During that month, mid-December through mid-January, my son was attending school as well as working his base job. It was an unusually bitter winter. He was out in the evenings putting up posters to advertise his upcoming DJing gigs. He had some challenges early on but never gave up. Over the years he has become a major player in the DJ world, playing parties for some of the top hip hop artists around. He still plays today and does his 9-5.

 

Although I did not know it, his DJing dream began before he got that JVC player, which he still has and showed me while I was in Germany that month, and reminded me of what I had said all those years ago about a passing fancy.

 

If you are thinking of starting an Internet business, you must have a plan, be tenacious, and never give up. It will take time and you will see positive results only after doing the work.

 

So, forget about all the shiny objects thrown at you daily and decide what you want to accomplish and plan accordingly, because there are No Free Rides in Business.

4 Tips for Digitally Marketing Your Home Business

by Rahimah Sultan

Digital marketing is the promotion of products or brands by one or more forms of electronic media. Unlike traditional marketing, digital marketing involves channels and methods that enable you to analyze marketing campaigns and understand what is working and what is not, in real time.

 

Building a strong foundation for your marketing is all important. In order to be successful with digital advertising, you must have the essential digital foundations in place before you can be successful with digital advertising. Here are four tips for digitally marketing your home business.

 

Branding

 

Before promotion comes branding. You must know what your niche is or what it is you want to convey to readers. Then you can build a website, social media presence, ad campaign, and other marketing materials to all match and work together to build brand awareness. You will then have a consistent look when you are ready to advertise.

 

Web Site

 

A website is your most important tool. It gives a first impression of what you and your company or home business are all about. It should be well organized and easy to navigate.

 

Prospective clients or customers will expect you to have a social media presence on which you consistently interact and where you share and provide content. You need to make sure you have social media presences on the main social media channels you want/need to be on. You do not need millions of visitors and you only need to be on a few channels.

 

SEO

 

SEO and keyword analysis are important to getting visitors to your site. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) are all about getting your website recognized on the first page of Yahoo!, Bing, or Google search engine results when clients search for relevant keywords or phrases.

 

By optimizing your pages based on the content you are writing, and other key strategies, you leave no doubt as to what you are about to the search engines. For a healthy web presence build your website in a way that promotes positive search rankings, thus building your reputation and establishing your brand as a leader in your industry.

 

Landing Pages

 

Landing pages are a must in your campaigns. They are a way to direct your visitors to the information or product they are seeking. It is like a street sign pointing the way. It is calling them to sign up to check out your offer and buy. If you have no landing page, visitors to your website can become confused and then click away from your page and you lose them forever.

 

Know your niche, have a well-organized website, use SEO and well-designed landing pages, and set up your campaigns. These Four Tips for Digitally Marketing Your Home Business should help bring you marketing success.
