5 Ways To Generate Multiple Income Streams

Most likely you have heard the saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket“. This is truly a sensible saying that can relate to many aspects of your life. Let’s primarily focus on generating Multiple Income Streams.

It’s hard to rely on a 9-5 job for your entire livelihood with layoffs and pay cuts always right around the corner. With multiple streams of income, on the other hand, you can avoid putting all your eggs in one basket – and use multiple streams of income to grow rich.

I am an Online Internet Marketer and can honestly tell you horrible experiences with Network and Affiliate Companies that either were shutdown or did not offer support and training to help you grow a business. You must have the determination and a positive mindset to grow and build your business. There ARE great companies with great products that can help you build a brighter financial future.

After years of experience, and yes, failures that taught me lessons, I was able to find the perfect match of Multiple Income Streams to exceed the income from my traditional 9-5 job.

Here are some Strategies You Must Consider:

1. Brand Yourself!

So what exactly does that mean? Imagine you are driving down the street and see in the distance golden arches. Now most of us know that stands for McDonald’s fast-food restaurant. Those golden arches represent their Brand and are easily recognized worldwide.

So to build your Brand online would mean a photo, logo or image of YOU. Learn more about Branding You in my recent blog post, How to Create Your Personal Brand.

2. Offer a service or sell something

The plain truth is simply started by selling other people’s products through affiliate or network marketing. This is the fastest way to generate an income stream without having to reinvent the wheel. Let’s face it, more and more people are turning to buying online every day.

Let me ask you a simple question? What hobby do you have a passion for? Maybe photography, gardening or financial planning. You can start your online business by sharing your passion, selling your service or products.

Virtual Business education is exploding in the online marketplace. You and many other online business owners simply can’t afford to not have in your arsenal to find success. Learn More on Business Education, Click Here.

3. Invest, Learn and Teach

Invest in yourself by learning best business practices in the online arena. Learn the proper way to use social media outlets and master them one at a time. Share and Teach others through social media to gain leverage and become a credible authority.

The plain truth is, this may sound too hard or overwhelming. And honestly, I will tell you it can be at times. You will learn early on the importance of mindset and setting goals. If you are serious and determined, stick to your goals and your future will change by keeping your eye on that end result.

4. Work With A Coach or Mentor

Working with a Coach or Mentor you get the facts, the cold hard facts. The advantage of their experience of what works and what doesn’t is invaluable. But that is not to say just because it did not work for them it won’t work for you. The time, online environment and individual personalities could make a difference. Remember, YOU are Branding YOU and seeking the experience of someone that is seeing success.

5. Join Social Media Groups

By joining groups you can easily interact with like-minded people. You can share what you have learned and resulted in success. Many top earners are open to sharing and answering questions you may be struggling with. It’s a great place to learn about Multiple Income Streams that may interest you.

Slam Dunk Your Business with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing

Slam Dunk Your Business with Affiliate Marketing

Wouldn’t you like to know how so many online marketers can build a business so quickly? Sometimes you will see marketers share examples of their inbox full of emails “You made a Sale” or “Cha-Ching You earned a Commission”.

Why are you not getting results? You feel you have worked hard doing all the right strategies and nothing is making it happen for you. You are frustrated, on the verge of just shutting down and quitting.

Sound familiar?

I get it, many marketers have had these same emotions along their journey. The plain truth is, standing your ground and remembering “WHY” you started.

[bctt tweet=”If you don’t find a way to make money in your sleep, you’ll work until you die – Warren Buffet” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

If you’ve ever been waiting for the right solution, you don’t have to wait any longer. Are you ready to slam dunk your business with Affiliate Marketing?

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product or system, then promotes that product/system and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.

Doing your research to find an legitimate, powerful, lucrative, and innovative affiliate program is key. There are plenty of affiliate programs out there. By doing your due diligence you can find your perfect fit. You may already have your own products you love and want to promote so make sure the affiliate system allows you to promote those products as well.

Benefits of an Affiliate Program/System:

  • Can offer a source of secondary or primary income
  • You’ll join the ranks of a support community to answer questions, offer solutions
  • Offers consistent access to ongoing training through webinars, podcasts…
  • Continually adding valuable products
  • Wide range of price points of products
  • Easy to understand step by step training
  • You don’t have to be an expert with Affiliate Marketing, just teachable

What should I look for in an Affiliate Product or System?

  • Length of time doing business; you want to know the affiliate has a proven track record for more than 5 years
  • Price Points; are the range of products affordable and offer upsales? Price ranges starting as low as $1 up to $5000 or more
  • Are the Tools and Resources available within the product or system, ie. autoresponder (Aweber)
  • Use caution when researching reviews! Negative reviews often conclude the product is legitimate. Don’t just make a decision by the headline. Read the full review.

Conclusion

Affiliate marketing is an ideal solution for those just getting started in building a home based business. Those looking to gain control of their own income by focusing on performance-based revenue options.

Working together with a system, a motivated affiliate marketer can achieve a passive income from the comfort of their home without worrying about producing their own product or service. Although the success of the job does depend on the affiliate marketer’s dedication. It can prove to be an effective way to meet your income goals as either a primary career or a profitable second job.

In my experience, attending live events, webinars and being interactive in the support community, improves your chances of staying motivated and meeting your goals.

Author’s Final Review

After completing my research and reviews of affiliate marketing products and systems I was fortunate to find a perfect fit that had all the benefits bundled together. I chose MLSP (My Lead System Pro). I highly recommend you take a look.

How to Effectively Use Attraction Marketing

Attraction Marketing

Are you using Attraction Marketing in your business? Perhaps you are stuck or just getting started and not quite sure where to go from this point. So let’s explore Attraction Marketing to see how to effectively make a difference.

Firstly, What is Attraction Marketing? This strategy is used by almost all successful marketers. Attraction marketing online is becoming the standard in which anyone anywhere can create a lucrative business by using certain strategies. Attraction Marketing is simply marketing to attract people that have an interest in what you have to say and the product or service you have to offer.

When I first learned of online marketing, I wasn’t sure what that meant. But over time, I began to take notice of how successful marketers were implementing strategies to reap huge success in their business.

Attraction marketing online is done a little differently, because you don’t have the face-to-face encounter. In order to have the same level of persuasion, you must learn how to skillfully orchestrate your words to make the connection with your audience. “Magnetic” words have the ability to grab attention at the most subtle subconscious level and the reader doesn’t really know they are pulled into the content until they take action.

[bctt tweet=” “Magnetic” words have the ability to grab attention!” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

As an example, if you are selling Health and Wellness products and you use “Magnetic” words such as “Healthy Lifestyle” or “Essential Oils” readers are apt to be attracted to read what you have to say, as long as your content addresses and solves a problem they have.

Here are a few examples that have proven effective in the Health and Wellness Niche, Expressing the benefits:

Essential Oils

Educate your readers about Essential Oils leaving them with the curiosity to learn more.

Skincare

Educate how you can solve their skincare problems. Help them see the benefits your products offer:

Benefits and Features

  • Minimizes pore appearance
  • Brightens complexion
  • Absorbs excess oils
  • Enhances natural beauty
  • Long-lasting, all-day wear
  • Ideal for sensitive skin
  • Vegan-friendly foundation formula, not tested on animals
  • Formulated without talc, bismuth, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic colorants

Healthy Home Care Products

Thieves essential oil uses:

  • Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
  • Diffuse 6–8 drops of Thieves to help create an environment of peace and security. Customize your Thieves experience by adding a few drops of Orange, Tangerine, or Nutmeg essential oil.
  • Put in a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend in your dishwater or dishwasher to thoroughly clean dishes and eliminate odor.

By sharing the benefits and problem solving issues will attract your audience to want to know more. Opening up door for them to contact you and build a relationship to learn their needs and find the perfect fit for them. Through the process of educating them on your products, they will reach out to you for help with problems they may be experiencing. You have attracted them to you, rather than you having to hunt down customers.

10 Rules To Build Your Business

Here is a share for you of 10 Rules to Build Your Business and become a respected authority so people will follow you and look forward to reading what you have to say. This helps to build your Brand “YOU”. I recently attended the Ray Higdon “Home Business Intensive” Build Your Businessseminar where these rules where discussed thoroughly and can truly build your business professionally. Enjoy!

  1. Role of Leader – Make it easy being a leader for your team. Assist your team in a timely manner and be available to lead them when necessary.
  2. Inspire by Example, Not by Motivation. Imagine if your team sees you taking action consistently, don’t you think that would inspire them to follow your lead?
  3. Everyone has different goals, treat them accordingly. Each individual team member has a different vision. As a leader understand they may use different strategies in their business. Everyone works differently and what works well for one team member may not be as effective with another team member.
  4. Stop pitching “Easy” – Tell the truth. We all know it is not easy. It take hard devoted work to be successful. Ensure that every team member and prospect is serious about building a business. If they are not serious and willing to commit to  investing time and money into learning what it takes, do you really what them on your team?
  5. Celebrate “Slow Wins” too. We all see the posts on Facebook celebrating the top earners. It is important to also celebrate Susie or Bobby’s first sign up. Comparing your business to someone else’s can be conflicting.
  6. Stop Repeating Yourself. Direct questions that are frequently asked to a Blog Post or shoot a video. Then the next time that question is asked you have a detailed resource to share responding to that question. Time is precious. Use it wisely.
  7. Teach to Teach. As you learn new strategies or methods, share them with others. Teach them what you have invested time in to learn. Be proud to say you are an Internet Marketer and you teach others how to build their business.
  8. Best thing to do for your team – Build a New Team. Build a new team of fully engaged committed team members. Guide them to duplicate which ever strategy works best for them. This surely will make a new strong team.
  9. Keep Recruiting. Why would you ever stop recruiting if you have a strong passion and belief in the product or service you promote. When you hit your goal, it is time to reassess and think bigger.
  10. This is the short cut; commit to long term. Most people struggle initially and may even fail. There is no short cut, time and commitment will be long term. Find the core values you want your company to represent and stick to them.

Every Professional needs marketing, whether your a doctor, attorney, hardware store…….etc. So these rules can apply to marketing efforts for any business.

6 Strategies to Overcome the Fear of Failure

6 Strategies to Overcome Your Fear of Failure

Fear of FailureHonestly, is fear of failure in anything we do in our lives, the end of the world. I don’t think so. Failure is a learning experience and odds are with most people they will not fail without getting something out of it. That’s not to say failure may not happen again, but it may manifest in another experience, another learning experience. So don’t sweat the Fear of Failure, it makes you better every time you try.

Here are 6 strategies to help you stop your fear of failure sucking the life out of you, and use it to succeed:

1. Accept yourself

When you fight something you give it power, and trying to control your fear will make it stronger. Instead, when you feel it, close your eyes and look inwards. Use a little acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Stop judging and start feeling and observing what’s happening in your body.

Detach yourself slightly from what’s going on and just observe what you feel and where you feel it. Is it a cold lump in your stomach? Is it pressure in your head? If you do this for a minute or two you’ll feel a sense of calm acceptance, and the power will deflate. With practice, you’ll begin to think “that’s just my fear of failure”, and be able to move on.

2. Control your thoughts

We all have random, crazy thoughts that pop into our minds from time to time but we dismiss them because they’re really wacky. The problem is that we don’t do the same for more reasonable, but unhelpful thoughts.

The next time you get one of those thoughts defuse it so you can let it go. Pretend you’re dealing with an unhelpful teenager and tell it, “Thanks, mind”, then move on to a more positive thought.

This also helps if you start thinking “I can’t do this”. You can simply thank your mind for the thought and then consciously ask yourself “HOW can I do this?” Changing the statement to a question will put your brain into a problem-solving mode so you’re more likely to come up with solutions.

3. Find your triggers

Do certain situations trigger negative thoughts and feelings? Maybe checking your Facebook feed is discouraging because everyone seems so successful. Maybe being around certain people makes you feel inadequate.

If you notice patterns like this then take steps to stop doing those things, or being around those people. If you can’t stop immediately, take steps to withdraw. For example, if your job gets you down and you can’t leave immediately, put an exit strategy in place. Start an active campaign to leave the workplace and begin something new.

Taking the steps to get out of negative situations will give you a feeling of control, and boost your confidence.

4. Believe in yourself

Feeling overwhelmed by your goals? Convinced you’re not good enough to take on the world? Try focusing on the here and now. Pay attention to little things you can achieve today and ignore the big picture for now.

Long-term plans can overwhelm everyone, the trick is to make sure it doesn’t immobilize you. Focus on the piece of the project that you can achieve now. Believe that you’ll be ready for each step as it arrives.

5. Appreciate yourself

Start an appreciation diary. This is similar to a gratitude diary but different. Each day list three or more things that you’re proud of. This is a place to note all the things you’ve done well – a way of congratulating yourself.

Practice patting yourself on the back, to reinforce the things you’re pleased about and you’ll start to feel stronger and more successful.

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

6. Question the ‘signs’

Don’t wonder if the universe is trying to send you a ‘sign’. Things are what they are – we add meaning that’s often not there. The weird thing is that we don’t do it over the day to day stuff. If your favorite coffee shop is closed for renovations you don’t think it’s a sign that you should give up coffee.

You just go somewhere else for coffee. So apply the same mindset to other setbacks you experience. Don’t think of them as a sign from the universe.

There is a plot twist in your story, not a sign you’re on the wrong path. Ignore them and stick to your dreams.

Use these tools and release your fear of failure and start your path to success today. I know that you can do it. I BELIEVE in you, and so do you. Failure is NOT an option, it is a choice. What do you choose?

How has the fear of failure stopped you? How do you get past your fear? Only you can decide your fate, and the rest of the world moves forward……?
