IT IS POSSIBLE TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS

Posted by 104Inc.com on March 12, 2009

Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.  Mary Martin

Your mind is your mental workshop.
You can build anything you want in it.
 
Visualize what you want in your mind.
See it. Feel it. Taste it. Believe in it.
Make your mental blue print
and then begin to build.
 
First, think about
what you want out of life.
The beginning always takes place
in your imagination.
Then organize your thoughts
into definitive plans.
Next, it’s time to transform
your thoughts into reality
by taking some positive action.
 
Visualize then actualize your success.

BEING SUCCESSFUL IS WITHIN YOU

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 27, 2009

How things look on the outside of you always depends
on how things are on the inside of you.
 
Your thoughts have brought you to where you are today.
Your actions always mirror your thoughts.
Take a good look at where you are and what you’re doing,
and you can understand what you’ve been thinking.
Your mind is your true essence.
 
Your behavior is the perpetual revealing of yourself.
What you do, tells everyone who and what you are.
 
Change your thoughts and you can change your position in life.
You can start this process at anytime.
Why not start today?

Poor Or Good Economy, Advertising Can Help You Bring In Customers

I understand that a slow cash flow is hard to cope with and the first inclination is to cut out the overhead. Unfortunately, they think of advertising as overhead. I considered it an extra salesperson that never slept, needed no health benefits, but always worked hard to bring in business. Advertising should be the last thing to go especially if you can cut cost and get more leads in the process. Now doesn’t that sound like a win-win?

Are The Yellow Pages Still Useful In This Internet Age?

I grew up before microwave ovens, fax machines, cell phones and personal computers. I finally got a Mac in 1984. Ten years later, a cell phone. I started working a sales consultant for the Yellow Pages in 1980 and figured that they would be around forever. But look at us now. We are hooked on Google searches and Blackberries as our PDA’s. What a difference a generation has made. So, do I or anyone else I know, still use the old printed directory? Read: Are The Yellow Pages Still Useful In This Internet Age? Read

The theory is based around the phenomenon of exponential growth, and there are numerous examples of people who have experienced it using effective viral marketing on The Internet.

Take Your Ad Out of the Yellowpages and Save a Bundle!

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 25, 2009

Take your ad out of the yellowpages and save a bundle. Actually, there’s a bit more to say, but most of my customers usually did just that before coming to see me. You see, I counsele 1000’s of clients during my years as a marketing consultant. So, during a recession, customers would ask to cut or remove their ads entirely. Hey, it made perfect sense to them. When business is good, advertise. When it’s bad, don’t. They also probably buy high and sell low in the stock market, too.

I understand that a slow cash flow is hard to cope with and the first inclination is to cut out the overhead. Unfortunately, they think of advertising as overhead. I considered it an extra salesperson that never slept, needed no health benefits, but always worked hard to bring in business. It was tough to convince my customers to stop dumping money in the yellowpages and start getting more for less.  Advertising should be the last thing to go especially if you can cut cost and get more leads in the process. Now doesn’t that sound like a win-win?

But invariably some businesses will still remove advertising and hope things would get better on their own. Amazingly, when I see them the following year, things weren’t any better and often, worse. They couldn’t comprehend what was happening, so I tried to explain the situation.

I would start with, “You just made your competitors very happy.” The business owner would look startled. “Why is that?” they might ask. “Because,” I reply, “you aren’t in the yellowpages anymore and that’s great but did you replace it with a lower cost and more effective alternative?  No. So when a consumer’s water heater dies and they go searching for a plumber, the other plumbers are there and you aren’t. They get to benefit from less competition. So, even though they pay for the ad, it works better when there are less ads. You did them a favor. I hoped they thanked you.”

Sure, the poor times might cause you to drop the color or reduce a size, but dropping the ad is not the way to help yourself when every customer becomes even more precious. There are other ways to beef up the results of your ad without spending more. In fact, I’ve had some clients spend less and still maintain a successful advertising program. It’s all about the little things and how they are handled. Haven’t you brought your car into the shop for a tune-up? Well, I bet it’s time to trade in that old and dusty yellowpages ad and 104inc.com is your neighborhood low cost and high impact advertising source. They will show you how to create a headline that works and create a slimmer and trimmer ad that can compete for more business. Also, 104inc.com will help you track the results of the ads so you know exactly how it’s doing.

Give your ad a makeover and take it out for a test run with a 45 Day FREE Trial. In a poor or good economy, your advertising can help you bring in customers, if it’s well thought out and created with your business in mind.

THERE ARE NO EASY ROADS TO SUCCESS

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 25, 2009

No one has a corner on success.
Pay the price for it and it’s yours.
 
No matter what you want from life you’ve got to give up something to get it.
 
Nothing worthwhile will come easily to you.
Hard work will accomplish results that last.
You’ve got to work a great deal harder than most people to get it.
 
There is no success at bargain basement prices.
 
The highway to success is a toll road.
Everything has a price.

REMAIN IN THE GAME IF YOU WANT TO WIN

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 24, 2009

The more you try, the greater your chance of succeeding. The law of averages is on your side. Taking a risk is often your first necessary step toward success. If you don’t take some risks, you won’t get the chance to succeed. While you are trying, you are winning. Never get discouraged. Every wrong attempt is another step forward. People that make no mistakes usually don’t make anything. Make up your mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand defeats. Your mistakes are stepping stones to success and your installment payments to victory. You can’t be a winner and be afraid to lose.

BELIEF MAKES EVERYTHING POSSIBLE

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 23, 2009

If you want to succeed, you must first believe that you can succeed.

The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life,
is the will to try it and the faith to believe that it’s possible.

The only true limit to your realization of tomorrow will be your doubts of today.
The moment you carry the conviction of belief, in that moment your dream will become reality.

If you think you can, you can.

High Quality Prospects For Your Business: Without Spending a Dime on Leads, Marketing or Advertising!

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 20, 2009

Today I wanted to share with you another secret to building a
successful and income producing business.
 
You see, I have met and talked with hundred of frustrated
marketers who are on the verge of calling it quits.
 
They are disenchanted by:
 
     – Their lack of income!
     – Stagnant business growth
     – The never ending attrition of their business!
 
Or worse, all of the above…
 
If this sounds like you – let me ask you this:
 
Are you building a business like a house of cards?
 
You know what I mean, an organization with little or no “real”
substance.
 
Here’s the secret I want to share with you today:
 
Build your business like you would your dream home.
 
What I mean by that is build your business with a solid foundation,
build from the finest materials you can find… and be extremely selective
when choosing who you bring into your business.
 
Now, this might sound challenging, especially if you’re new to the
business. But don’t worry, I tell you precisely how to do this – and
fast.
 
First of all, don’t simply recruit just anyone into your business!
 
Now, this is going to sound contrary to everything that you have heard
before, and goes against the “everyone is a prospect” mantra that has been
drilled into your subconscious.
 
But hear me out here, as this is an extremely important tip.
 
Most marketers will go to just about any length to recruit “suspects”
into their business, occasionally using “pressure” tactics to do so.
 
The result of this is building a business full of low quality recruits,
who will:
     – Complain the most!
     – Struggle the most!
     – Drain your time the most!
     – Quit the most!
 
And, most importantly – produce the least!
 
Instead, recruit only “high quality” people into your business.
 
Look for people who already have:
     – Existing Business savvy
     – A burning desire to succeed
     – A drive to achieve more
     – A willingness to learn
 
And, if they also have a built in “warm” market – that’s a bonus!
 
So where do you find such people?
 
Believe it or not, that’s a whole lot easier than you think –
BUT ONLY if you know where to look.
 
This is why I have taken all the knowledge that I have obtained in the
last 12 years, and compiled it into a simple to learn, surefire system,
that will show you in step-by-step detail how to target the highest
quality prospects for your business – without spending a dime on leads,
marketing or advertising!
 
And, it’s all waiting for you in my NEW “104Inc.com FREE TRIAL”.
 
And, here’s some great news for you:
 
As I mentioned yesterday, you have the chance to purchase it for the
Pre-Launch price of $99 before it goes on sale to the masses for $199.
I would encourage you to do so now.

YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN OPPORTUNITIES

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 20, 2009

Success doesn’t come to you.
You must go to it.
You don’t need more strength or more ability or greater opportunity.
What you need is to use what you have.
 
The golden opportunity you’re seeking is in yourself.
It’s not in your environment.
It’s not in luck or chance or the help of others.
It’s in you.
 
There will always be a new opportunity
where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
 
Open your own door to opportunity.
