What Are The Keys To Success With An At Home Business ?

Keys To  SuccessWhen I talk to six and seven figure earners or doing masterminds the one question that always intrigues me is, What are the Keys To Success with your business ?

The the answer might surprise you but one thing is for sure, the answer is always the same.

There are many elements that are in place to achieve success with an at home business. And I would like to elaborate more on exactly what these are.

On the surface there are three parts you must have to succeed:

  1. You must have a product that people need and are looking for. This is where market research comes into play. First you must have a hungry market with a problem and then have or create a product to give to them the solution. Surprisingly enough, many people try to do it the other way around and it is one of the reasons why they fail. 
  2. As mentioned above, You need a Market looking for your product! For example: If you want to catch Salmon you don’t go to the middle of the ocean and throw a net and hope to catch Salmon. No,You go to a river or stream where the Salmons are and then you will have a much better chance of catching some Salmon. In other words you need to know where your market is and what are they looking for.
  3. Now that you have a product and know who your market is you need a way to catch the Salmon, Right ? Now you need traffic to buy your products. This is the number one reason 95% of entrepreneurs fail with an at home business. You need to have a proven marketing strategy that not only gets people to buy your product but do it in a cost effective manner. If it costs you $1.00 to get a customer then you need to be making hopefully $2.00 or more to continue doing business.

The keys to success are having all of these pieces of the puzzle in place but also the true keys to success is having a complete system that streamlines the process for you so you can work more efficiently and more productively.

What do I mean by a system ?

Lead Funnel System

All successful entrepreneurs have a lead funnel system like:

  • Having a website to funnel your prospects and convert them into buyers for you. If your doing affiliate marketing than you need a capture page to collect people’s information so you don’t have to pay for marketing two times for the same customer.
  • You need an effective lead sales funnel which once your prospect or customer enters their email details they are forwarded automatically to the sales page to monetize your leads into sales and if they don’t buy the first time the system can follow up with them to convert them into sales further in the process.
  • You need a follow up system to collect email information. Let me give you an example: When the Temper.pudic mattress came out they collected the email information to stay in touch with their potential customers and many did not buy the first time they received their DVD and Sample in the mail but because they collected their email information they stayed in touch with prospects and some bought even a year or later after their initial contact with them. Emails are free after initially capturing their information.
  • You also need a payment processing system if you have your own product. If you are doing affiliate marketing than this is done for you by the product owner.

Remember at the beginning I said, That all successful entrepreneurs keys to success with their at home business were the same!

Why Write an eBook ?

Do you have an idea you would like to share with others and don’t know if writing an ebook is the answer ?

Writing An EbbokIt’s not true that everything that has been said has already been written. Since that unfortunate axiom came into use, the whole universe has changed.

Technology has changed, ideas have changed, and the mindsets of entire nations have changed.

The fact is that this is the perfect time to write an ebook. What the publishing industry needs are people who can tap into the world as it is today – innovative thinkers who can make the leap into the new millennium and figure out how to solve old problems in a new way.

Ebooks are a new and powerful tool for original thinkers with fresh ideas to disseminate information to the millions of people who are struggling to figure out how to do a plethora of different things.

Let’s say you already have a brilliant idea, and the knowledge to back it up that will enable you to write an exceptional ebook. You may be sitting at your computer staring at a blank screen wondering, “Why? Why should I go through all the trouble of writing my ebook when it’s so impossible to get anything published these days?

Well, let me assure you that publishing an ebook is entirely different than publishing a book in print. Let’s look at the specifics of how the print and cyber publishing industry differ, and the many reasons why you should take the plunge and get your fingers tapping across those keyboards!

Submitting a print book to conventional publishing houses or to agents is similar to wearing a hair shirt 24/7. No matter how good your book actually is, or how many critique services and mentor writers have told you that “you’ve got what it takes,” your submitted manuscript keeps coming back to you as if it is a boomerang instead of a valuable mine of information.

Perhaps, in desperation, you’ve checked out self-publishing and found out just how expensive a venture it can be. Most “vanity presses” require minimal print runs of at least 500 copies, and even that amount will cost you thousands of dollars. Some presses’ minimal run starts at 1,000 to 2,000 copies.

And that’s just for the printing and binding. Add in distribution, shipping, and promotional costs and – well, you do the math. Even if you wanted to go this route, you may not have that kind of money to risk.

Let’s say you already have an Internet business with a quality website and a quality product. An ebook is one of the most powerful ways to promote your business while educating people with the knowledge you already possess as a business owner of a specific product or service.

For example, let’s say that you’ve spent the last twenty-five years growing and training bonsai trees, and now you’re ready to share your knowledge and experience. An ebook is the perfect way to reach the largest audience of bonsai enthusiasts.

Ebooks will not only promote your business – they will help you make a name for yourself and your company, and establish you as an expert in your field. You may even find that you have enough to say to warrant a series of ebooks. Specific businesses are complicated and often require the different aspects to be divided in order for the reader to get the full story.

Perhaps your goals are more finely tuned in terms of the ebook scene. You may want to build a whole business around writing and publishing ebooks. Essentially, you want to start an e-business. You are thinking of setting up a website to promote and market your ebooks. Maybe you’re even thinking of producing an ezine.

One of the most prevalent reasons people read ebooks is to find information about how to turn their Internet businesses into a profit-making machine. And these people are looking to the writers of ebooks to provide them with new ideas and strategies because writers of ebooks are usually people who understand the new cyberspace world we now live in.

Ebook writers are experts in Internet marketing campaigns and the strategies of promoting and distributing ebooks. The cyberspace community needs its ebooks to be successful so that more and more ebooks will be written.

You may want to create affiliate programs that will also market your ebook. Affiliates can be people or businesses worldwide that will all be working to sell your ebooks. Think about this? Do you see a formula for success here?

Figure out what your subject matter is, and then narrow it down. Your goal is to aim for specificity. Research what’s out there already, and try to find a void that your ebook might fill.

What about an ebook about a wedding cake business? Or write an ebook about caring for elderly pets? How about the fine points of collecting ancient pottery?

You don’t have to have three masters degrees to write an ebook about your subject. People need advice that is easy to read and easily understood. Parents need advice for dealing with their teenagers. College students need to learn good study skills – quickly. The possibilities are endless.

After you’ve writtten your ebook Getting your ebook out is going to be your focus once you’ve finished writing it, just as it is with print books. People will hesitate to buy any book from an author they’ve never heard of. Wouldn’t you?

The answer is simple: give it away! You will see profits in the form of promoting your own business and getting your name out. You will find affiliates who will ask you to place their links within your ebook, and these affiliates will in turn go out and make your name known. Almost every single famous ebook author has started out this way.

Another powerful tool to attract people to your ebook is to make it interactive. Invent something for them to do within the book rather than just producing pages that contain static text. Let your readers fill out questionnaires, forms, even crossword puzzles geared to testing their knowledge on a particular subject.

Have your readers hit a link that will allow them to recommend your book to their friends and associates. Or include an actual order form so at the end of their reading journey, they can eagerly buy your product.

When people interact with books, they become a part of the world of that book. The fact is just as true for books in print as it is for ebooks.

That’s why ebooks are so essential. Not only do they provide a forum for people to learn and make sense of their own thoughts, but they can also serve to promote your business at the same time.

If you don’t know where to get started on writing your own ebook then read my post on, ” How To Write An Ebook ” and some tips on overcoming writers block.
