Weekend Crash Course to Inbound Calling


Ok, so it is the weekend. Personally, I like to have weekend flexibility. Sometimes we do have a social life, but if nothing is happening, I save weekends for planning and maybe a little ad posting.

Today I am setting a schedule for next week. I am still growing my Indiana Water Filters Distributorship, I am also learning to market other ways using quite an array of tools. 

This week I dedicated to learning a new, part time business, just to get some extra business building capitol. Every business needs a cash flow, and I have found a very easy one. Funny, this is kind of how I started learning this business. 

So this weekend, I need to organize my time so I can fit everything in!

My plan/tasks for next week:
  • Post 50 ads, daily
  • Make at least 5 calls, daily
  • Post on my top 3 performing blogs, daily
  •  Continue testing current advertising resources

Persistence is key to anything. Taking Inbound Calls from home is a real job. It is also a business. Like any new job or business, there are things to learn. Every job has different skills, every business is built differently. You must learn the skills and apply them to be a success, at any job.

Begin your day like you are going to any other job. Get up, get dressed, eat breakfast, and get ready to work.

Sit down and start marking tasks off of your list. I start with the ones I really don't like to do, posting ads. Really 50 ads can go fast. Just make sure to have a note pad with your ads ready to paste, and you are going to just fly right through and be done before you know it.

Then it is on to blog posting. I can always count on my FaceBook wall to provide some really good, relevant material. Once I find my subject and some information, reading and creating my post commences. This can be very time consuming. But, I love it!

The rest of my day is spent lately testing current resources I have. Cleaning house, so to speak. I log in, check out the site and tools available, use them, then see if I get any results. Lower performing ones, or those I just don't understand, are off my list of tools.

Make sure to take breaks, just like at a job. It is important to step away from the computer screen once in a while.

Taking Incoming Calls Is a real job you can do at home. You should really treat it like one. Be persistent, keep a schedule. Results will follow. The more you learn and do the better you will get.

WAH Direct Selling Option

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Direct Selling is becoming more profitable in a bad economy. A recent report, that you can download here, states:
In 2010, direct selling companies generated over $125 billion in revenue in 150 countries through more than 75 million men and women who are changing lives serving others. This is the story of direct selling.
 Many products and services fall into the Direct Selling category.  Direct selling is a perfect Work at Home option for stay at home moms and dads alike. As it is back to school time. I thought it was a good subject to cover. Many moms and dads alike are looking to becoming their own boss, using a direct selling product or service.

The top 7 on The Wall Street Journal's list of Direct Selling Companies are: Avon, Natura, Herbalife, Tupperware, Oriflame, Nu Skin, and Primerica.

With the droves of people that are among the long term unemployed, direct selling can be the answer to the end of the job search.

The rebound in the stock market has many investors smiling again, especially those who have put their money in direct selling companies. Many of the top 12 public companies that sell direct have outperformed the average stock return by impressive margins since the market dipped to its low in early 2009.
The face of employment is changing for ever. Technology, and the drive to get the middle class family budget back to a place where families can afford to live.

What does it take to market a direct sell product? It takes drive, passion, and the ability to adapt and learn new skills. Just the same as getting and starting a new job.  Direct selling should be treated as a new job. When you find the right company and product to market, the learning begins.

Before you start, you have to find the right company. Do your due diligence on this one. Research any company  thoroughly before signing up. Look up information on the Better Business Bureau, make sure they are a member of the Direct Selling Association, seek out other distributors, new and old, find out what their experience with the company is. Even search some of the scam reporting sites to read any complaints from distributors. 

Study the business model in the PDF above. Set a schedule, stick to it. Learn a new skill every day.  Most direct selling companies offer extensive training to insure the success of their distributors. The person who you join the opportunity will be your coach and mentor. Take their advise to heart and get to really know them.  Build a lasting, mutually profitable relationship with your sponsor.

The right Direct Selling company can end your JOB search and get your budget back on track. Stop looking for someone else to work for, work for you!

I am committed to informing everyone about the quality of their drinking water and the food we eat. Food and water are truly life essential, and we really need to think before we drink or eat processed and GMO foods.

Even President Obama strongly suggests that every American should filter their tap water. If we must filter our water, we should use a quality water filter system. 

There are many studies that are showing how harmful the artificial, processed and genetically modified foods are for the human body.
