This is a typical scenario: You decide to start a home business and suddenly everyone knows your nose in your business, literally. What do you say to them? And how do you answer your own questions? What can the company expect from stability, longevity, vitality, trust, income, etc.? From the perspective? First the bad news: no guarantee. Then the good news is that there is plenty of information available to draw your own conclusions. The internet is huge and every good company offers free marketing tools and training.
But he returned to the business plan. Small, slow and boy! a lot to learn. What is the point of actually sitting down and writing a business plan? You're not Bill Gates, it's not Microsoft, just a few hours a week at your home office, slowly creating an online business presence, not really understanding what you're doing.
Relax and breathe. Unlike Mt. Rushmore, your plan is not designed to withstand weather conditions. You can expect it to change and turn with the flow of real experience that will be entirely yours, not the same as anyone else.
What writes the plan is to take a break, thinking, dreaming, studying and focusing. A written document, whether a page or twelve, provides you with the framework to work. The Internet is huge and seemingly endless. Every day you can easily lose focus and leave for another whim or idea. Understand where you are today, what tools you need to work with, what your goals are, and how to get the most out of them, and measure your success, help you stay on the target, and don't waste the few hours you invest in your business startup.
When you feel lost or confused, you can return to written things. When you analyze the situation and decide to change it, rewrite this part of the plan. Understand that you are a living document that aims to grow with you and your business. Your business plan is your friend.
Starting a Business Plan
First you need to study the company and its management. You must read and learn the products, the compensation plan and the network structure. See you next month. Just kidding.
Plan to read SOME every working day in the next few months, if not for an infinite period. Keep up with company forum entries every day; read training reports every day. Education continues. Plan it.
When you're ready, open the Notepad window and answer these questions:
What service / products does your business offer and what needs do you have?
Who are the potential buyers of a product or service and why are they buying from you?
How do you reach potential customers?
Where do you get the financial resources you need for your business?
Ok. Perhaps the company offers many products and services. What do you want to focus on? I suggest you concentrate on one or two products and / or affiliate first. In other words, keeping is simple. Once you get what you do, you will know when to expand. Just do what you feel well, every step of the way. It's your business, your right and privilege to decide on your approach.
Internet marketing is based on building trust. How will you do this?
Customer Access to Marketing. Your decision again. Again, the options must be in the company's training materials.
That's how we talk about developing a reading / study schedule. Here's a list, after reading your own decisions to answer the above questions, start writing. Writing can be a list of words and phrases, free-form brainstorming, outlines, mind maps, whatever works for you. Just write it down and don't forget to save it often. If your home office is linked to cats or toddlers, they tend to use random key combinations. Documents sometimes disappear. Saving will prevent a complete disaster.
- Study the products.
- Read the tutorials.
- Read about decisions, bonuses, etc.
- Study marketing tools and strategies
- Learn what free tools are available.
- Visit the forums regularly. Read everything about getting started.
The final written business plan consists of at least four parts:
Introduction / Background: The history of the company and its founder, internet marketing trends, why this company and why now and so on.
Objectives: I suggest you think about what you want to study in two years, but mainly focus on your first year goals. Realistic goals can be designed based on the company's website, newsletters, forum searches, and other issues focused on other affiliates.
Marketing Plan: Based on the answers to the first three questions above and the study of marketing tools and tools.
Action Plans: Monthly, weekly and / or daily features for the following year.
I can't tell you what your answers are because you have to decide how much money to invest. It is up to you to decide how many hours per day, per week, or per month for your business. What products I feel are the most appropriate, and those they choose to target as a customer are all decisions. If you get stuck and you don't understand a question, you don't know where to find information, or you don't know how to ask a question, contact your sponsor or someone you find on your top line. If they can't help you, they must be able to send you to someone.
NEVER feel alone. Work FUN! …
