Free Online Advertising: New Challenges Need New Answers

Posted by 104Inc.com on December 17, 2008

New challenges need new answers; If there’s one truth I’ve learned these past years serving growing companies and helping them explode their business, that’s GOT to be it. And in today’s “slow” economy, the old ways of recruiting new people into your business, the ways we found working in an “easy” economy… well, they just won’t cut it.
 
Like it or not:  You can’t stand still in business. You’re either growing or you’re shrinking. And like a yacht without a rudder, if you’re not putting things to work for you to get your direction clearly set, you’re at the mercy of wind and wave.  But it’s not bad news. In fact, because so many people in your business have just “given up”, this so-called “crunch” could be the best thing for you and your family.
 
Surprised? I bet you are.
 
And in a moment, I’ll share with you how you can prove this to yourself for just FREE… with 0% risk to you. But before I get into that, it seems hard to believe how much things have changed: Years ago when I started sharing with growing companies like yours the secrets to explosive business growth, the Internet was a FRACTION of its size today.  But now there are an estimated 1.133 BILLION people using the Internet regularly: Can you even IMAGINE a larger pool of potential prospects for your business, no matter WHAT it is?  And just as the Internet has grown, the opportunities have grown right along with it.
 
Fact: everyone today seems to be desperately looking for new ways to make those few extra bucks to make ends meet… so could there be a BETTER time for you to be there as their “lucky rabbit’s foot”, with your opportunity?  No.
 
Approach it in the right way, and this could be the best time of all!  And that’s why I created the NEW “Endless Free Online Business Link and Advertising” for you, new thinking, new solutions for a new economy.  These new services are nothing you have ever seen before.   It might seem like a dream right now but I promise and I actually GUARANTEE with my own money — I’ll share with you the “new secrets” to adding a minimum of five new people to your business, each and every week… for a lifetime to come!  And I want YOU to join me, at 104Inc.com for FREE; sounds too good to be true?  I guess it might. But it IS true: I want you to give 104inc a try for free and you can START TODAY.
 
No strings.  They are sharing the secrets that “Pay Per Click” companies like Google don’t want you to know.  I know how tough it seems right now, so I’m sharing my success and good fortune with you and bringing it within EVERYONE’S reach: Register for free and you’re set to go: 104Inc allows you to find what you desire through multiple websites while still being part of our innovative network. With unlimited doors for users to “walk” through to locate your business, everyone within 104Inc automatically promotes for one another.
 
I’m not joking.  See, I KNOW how powerful this is, so I don’t have to worry about it not giving you the results I promise…  and YOU don’t have to decide now, because you can just give it a try for just free.  And, you know, when all this blows over, when the dust settles and things “pick up” again, there will be two groups of people in your organization:
 
  1. Those who made things happen; 
 
  2. And those who just had things
     happen to them.
 
I ask you now: which group do you want to be in? Visit 104inc.com right now and register.  You have nothing to lose and only business to gain.

I Hate My Job and My Boss

Posted by 104Inc.com on December 10, 2008

I here the same complaint over and over again; my manager sucks, I hate my boss, if I was in charge I would be a better boss, the owner of the company never listens to my ideas. I have one thing to say to those people. STOP COMPLAINING!!!

The reason you are in a dead end no where job is because you are not the smartest or the most efficient or the hardest working. Most of you who complain about this are probably reading this from your desk at work instead of being productive. The successful people do not work for anyone but themselves. They
create something new to bring to the marketplace. They are the ones who create opportunities so a lazy dumb ass like you can even have a job.

I want you to conduct an honest evaluation about yourself and your work ethic and ask your self the following questions:

1. How much time do you spend speaking with co-workers about things other then work?

2. How much time in a day do you send on email talking with friends or forwarding jokes rather then doing your job?

3. When was the last time you presented a feasible idea to the company which can help the company to increase sales, profitability, and efficiency?

4. How often do you have to be told what to do in your job rather then you taking the lead to do your job?

5. How often do you send your work up to management without checking the quality of your work?

If you are truly working at least 40 hours per week and the answer to number 1-2 is 0 think about what the owner of the company is doing? That owner is probably working 2-3 time more then you because they want to make sure that the company stays afloat so that you and all the people just like you will still have a job tomorrow.

The reason that you are not moving up is because you have done nothing when it comes to points 3-5. You need to remember something. Most smart and successful entrepreneurs and managers already know what they want and how they want it and it is most likely they will not take your advice or suggestions. So next time they tell you to do something do not say it cannot be done. Try to figure out how to get it done. Do not ask question just do it. As long as you get the end result and it is legitimate and ethical do it. That will show the manager that you are worthy of more and worthy of success.

If you still hate what you are doing, go to 104jobz.com. Find a staffing company that can place you with a firm that you can work with.

OPPORTUNITY APPEARS WHEN YOU ARE READY

Posted by 104Inc.com on November 18, 2008

Chance never helps those who do not help themselves.   Sophocles

Chance is turned into good fortune by successful people.
You are surrounded by all kinds of opportunity.

Luck is being at the right place at the right time.
Taking advantage of an opportunity is always under your control.
When you are mentally prepared the right opportunity will present itself.

Talent alone won’t make you successful.
Neither will being at the right place at the right time unless you are ready.

When the student is ready, the teacher appears

EVERYTHING HAS A PRICE

Posted by 104Inc.com on November 18, 2008

The old road on the southern side of the St.

Image via Wikipedia

No one has a corner on success.
Pay the price for it and it is yours.

There is no easy road to success.
You’ve got to work a great deal harder than most people to get it.
Nothing worthwhile will come easily to you.
Hard work will accomplish results that last.

No matter what you want from life, you’ve got to give up something to get it.

There is no success at bargain basement prices.
You’ll find that the highway to success is a toll road.

OPPORTUNITY LIES IN THE MIDST OF DIFFICULTY

Posted by 104Inc.com on November 13, 2008

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.  Henry Ford 

Every problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful
that it literally dwarfs the problem.
The greatest success stories were created by people
who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.

You’ll find that every situation properly perceived
offers you opportunity.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it.

Successful people don’t achieve their distinction by having
some new talent or opportunity presented to them.
They developed an opportunity that was at hand.

You must make your own opportunities if you want to be successful.
They are all around you.

IT TAKES PERSISTENCE TO REACH A GOAL

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 29, 2008

Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.   Christopher Morley

Boys, there ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it. It’s called perseverance.    Lee Iacocca

“Keep trying” is the rule that must be followed
to be successful at anything.

Your success will always be connected with your actions.
Just keep moving towards your goal.
You’ll make mistakes but don’t ever quit.
You may even have to hang on after others have let go.

Persistence means taking pains to overcome every obstacle,
to do all that’s necessary to reach your goal.

In the end, the only people who fail are those that do not try.

All great achievement takes time.

YOU HAVE TO THINK BIG TO BE BIG

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 24, 2008

To learn about other people is science, to learn to know yourself is intelligence. Chinese Proverb

High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
You’ll always hit what you aim for in the long run.
So why not aim high?Have the courage to follow your dreams.
It’s the first step towards attaining your destiny.

If you can dream it, you can do it.
If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make it come true?
The empire of your future resides in your mind.

Big thinking precedes big achievement.

To succeed at selling: Questions and probes

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 20, 2008

Seeks information to understand situations, needs, and desired potential benefits.

To succeed at selling, you need to sell to customers’ needs. How do you find out about these needs? Research the industries your customers are in. Then confirm the information you gather by asking questions. Studies show that asking questions is the most powerful way to persuade.

 

 

1. Do your homework.
Know as much as possible about your customer’s industry, the products and services they provide, the challenges they face, and the business needs they’re striving to achieve–before you walk in the door. Locate this information through:

 

 

  • Online or offline databases
  • The Internet or your company’s intranet.
  • Newspapers, magazines, journals, trade publications, annual reports, and other sources of business data.
  • Business directories.
  • Professional organizations.
  • People within the organization who report to the customer. These “gatekeepers” can include receptionists, assistants, or junior people from associated departments.

Think about the information that will help you learn more about your customer’s situation and needs. For example:

  • What is the customer’s buying criteria? (Criteria might include service, price, and quality.)
  • Is there a problem or concern that needs to be addressed? How critical is it? In which area(s) does it have the biggest effect?
  • What are the customer’s time frames for making a purchasing decision?
  • Is the customer considering any of your competitors? Which ones? Why?

Anticipate problems your customer might be experiencing. Before you meet with the customer, identify how your products and services can solve those problems.
2. Ask questions.
Ask questions to clarify the customer’s situation and needs. There are four types of questions that are critical.
 
 
 
Basic Fact Questions. The answers to these questions reveal specific information about the buyer and his or her business.

Examples:

  • How many operations like this does your organization have around the world?
  • How many people are employed at this plant?
  • What are your plans for growth over the next five years?

By doing your homework, you can answer many basic fact questions. Be selective about the number of these questions you ask customers. People are busy and, in many cases, don’t have time to educate you on the basic facts about their business. Seek only clarification of information that is not obvious or readily understood.

Problem Questions. These questions surface problems that the customer is experiencing. Their purpose is to help you:

  • Better understand the customer’s concerns or dissatisfaction with the current product or service.
  • Identify how your products and services might solve the problem.

Examples:

  • What problems are you experiencing with your present system?
  • Why do you think the process is so inefficient?
  • What quality or reliability problems are you experiencing?

Consequence Questions. Often, asking problem questions will get the customer interested in your product or service. Sometimes, however, you need to increase the size of the problem in the customer’s mind to promote interest. Asking about the consequences of problems “builds the pain” of the customer’s current situation.

Examples:

  • How will the problems you’re experiencing with your present system affect productivity?
  • To what extent do your process inefficiencies translate into opportunities for your competition?
  • What kind of turnover or training costs are you incurring because of your situation?

Asking hypothetical questions drives home the need for a solution–especially in the minds of your customers. If they didn’t recognize the extent to which a problem could damage individuals or the organization, they will now.

Benefit Questions. These questions surface the usefulness or benefit of implementing your product or service. By asking questions that let customers tell you the value of your solution, you ultimately allow them to convince themselves of the need for your product or service.

Examples:

  • How would it help to have online diagnostics?
  • What advantages would you gain from a software package that requires very little training to use effectively?
  • Is there any other benefit of eliminating this problem?

The key to successful sales calls is preparation. When planning your next sales call, write down questions that you need to ask your customer. Consider each category–basic fact, problem, consequence, and benefit–and plan your call around asking those types of questions.

 

Keep in mind that when making a purchasing decision, a customer must answer the question, “Is the problem big enough to justify this solution?” Therefore, you must ask several problem and consequence questions. This will raise awareness in the customer’s mind that the current situation and needs are serious enough to warrant buying your solution.
