Time To Make Money When You Sleep…

Making Money While You Sleep

Making Money While You Sleep…

In any career!

I meet 1,000s of business owners & entrepreneurs every single month and what most of us have to realize is that we are all truly self-employed. That means that we work for ourselves, yet if we stopped working tomorrow we would have no income because we truly are our business!

This means that we should start thinking about what we can create that makes us Passive Income. Passive Income is defined by Wikipedia as Earnings from a business that does not require direct involvement from the owner. So, I have put together some ideas and examples for you to really start thinking about this as it’s important that Passive Income becomes part of your business so that you can be working ON your business and not always IN your business.

Here are 25 great ideas of the kind of  things you can do:

  1. Invest your money and earn interest.2. Purchase assets like Real Estate, Equipment, Stocks, Bonds, Etc.3. License your product or service and earn royalties.4. Franchise your idea.5. Write books or e-books.6. Video tape what you do and sell DVDs.7. Video tape what you do and start an online membership site.8. Create CDs or MP3s that people can listen to while mobile.9. Create an online University (training) and create modules that people can join.10. Joint Venture with other companies.11. Create an affiliate program.12.  Referral & Loyalty Programs.13. Well trained Employees.14. Educate your Friends & Family.15. Networking Groups.16. Executive boards.17. Mastermind Groups.18. Website.19. Automated Social Media.20. Autoresponder campaigns.21. Conference calls.22. Webinars.23. Effective Advertising – Print, TV, Radio, Pay-per-click, Editorials, Advetorials, etc.
    24. Educated Vendors & suppliers.25. Automated video email.

The key is to always be thinking of a long term plan to ensure that you are creating products that will grow your passive income.

BLOG posts to e-book to DVD series

You have heard about how good it is for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for you to be blogging about your business, products, services, etc. So, why not think big picture and spend time creating BLOG posts each and every week that you could easily collate into a book after a year. If you were BLOGGING once a week you would have 52 topics and you could launch an e-book or physical book called 52 Ways to ….

Similarly, you could video BLOG and create a DVD series called 52 Ways to….

You should always be thinking along the lines of “How can I turn what I am doing now into long term passive income for my business?”

Record all conference calls, seminars, webinars, etc. even if you do not have a plan today at least you will have the material available when you decide to create passive income in your business in the future.

What about Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Financial Planners, Professional Services, etc.?

One thing that all the above careers have in common is that they are experts in their fields and can create so many different products and services that once they are experienced in their field that they could sell. Selling knowledge is huge and is now called InfoPreneuring and can make massive Passive Income. You can create training DVD, CDs or booklets on how you overcame the challenges in the 1st year, what to do and not to do in your first year, 2nd year and onwards… There are so  many opportunities… you just have to be incredibly creative.

Feel free to ask questions or leave comments as this topic is massive and you should be thinking passive!

Creating Your Sales Force That Never Stop Selling Your Product Or Service!

Sales Vs Account Manager

There is a BIG difference!

Do you know it?

A Salesperson is somebody who can make Cold-Calls (Action Calls as we say at Make Your Mark) and can actively get out there, establish and build relationships and sell. When you are interviewing for a top notch salesperson you should be asking them if they love Action Calling and getting out and meeting people. Many times we hire a salesperson to look after existing accounts that we have in our businesses and wonder why they are not going out and Action Calling? It’s because they are  account managers or executives that only like to look after established accounts or connections – they do not like starting relationships… it’s often just not their thing and that’s okay!

Great salespeople are like hunters looking for the next opportunity and will jump on the internet and look for places where their ideal prospects hangout and go out without any fear to meet them, build relationships and sell their products.

You have to decide when you hire somebody for a sales role if you are hiring an account manager to look after your existing accounts or a salesperson who knows what it takes to establish new accounts. Both are very important to business, yet it fascinates me how many business owners hire what they believe to be a top notch salesperson and they really are only  a glorified account manager.

One can definitely support the other, just make sure you are very clear about the position and role that you are hiring for.

It Maybe Time To Do Surgery On Your Business In 2018! Have You Found The Right Business Mentor That Will Assist You On Your Journey To Success? Follow The Path That Many Canadian Businesses Have Found To Be One Of The Most Powerful Business Guru’s In North America Today…

Small Business Owners Should Not Do Heart Surgery

Small Business Solutions For 2018!

There is a huge reason why many Entrepreneurs and Business Owners FAIL in their first 2 years! It’s because many of them do not have the training or education to operate a business.

You would never take a 1st year medical student and ask them to perform detailed heart surgery, why do business owners and entrepreneurs believe that it is possible?

Doctors, Dentists, Accountants, Chiropractors and many other disciplines all went to school to specialize in their chosen career, but the saddest part is that many of the curriculums do not include entrepreneurial or business training.

An entrepreneur in their 1st year of business is like a 1st year medical student with a scalpel… extremely dangerous!

Finding a system that you can plug into and follow in order to achieve massive success in your business is vitally important!

The more business knowledge, accountability and mentorship you have in the beginning phases of your business, the greater the chance for being a success story and not a casualty.

We have created a system for people to plug into that combines education and accountability to directly guide business owners and entrepreneurs to achieve success no matter what level you are at.

Most Entrepreneurs are massive locomotives with tons of energy and no solid success rails to run on, we lay the rails of success for you!

Create And Maximize Your Sale & Profit Within Your Business…

How To Be The Expert in Your Small Business!

Be the EXPERT is really getting YOU to realize that you need to sell your products and/or services with confidence and RIGHTSELL the customer.

What’s RIGHT-SELLING?

Some people call this upselling, at Make Your Mark Training, we call it right-selling – making sure you sell your customer the right products and/or services to ensure they get the results or the solution that they want.

At Make Your Mark we say, “When you have a great product or service, you owe it to your customer to sell it to them well!”

In many instances we do not think about the opposite of not selling somebody the most appropriate combination of products and/or services that best suits their needs, and have clients returning or going somewhere else disgruntled because you did not deliver the RESULTS or SOLUTIONS they were looking for!

A few good examples to get your creative juices flowing:

A SERVICE: Chiropractor

When you go to see a Chiropractor and they do their evaluation and give you only the one treatment you are looking for and then let you leave their rooms, knowing that according to the injury you had, that 5 treatments would be ideal to get you back on track, they are doing you a disservice by allowing you to leave their practice. If you ask the Chiropractor WHEN should I book next and they say… maybe 1 – 2 weeks from now… they have done you a disservice.

They know what is ideal for you and should be informing you that according to your injury and after the initial treatment  that you need to return each week for the next 5 weeks to ensure the injury is easily overcome and that no further damage is done.

If they demand only one treatment and that’s it. It’s your choice to treat them knowing that it’s your reputation on the line. You may turn them away or convince them otherwise, but if you do just a single treatment and let them go… you have done them a disservice that could hurt your businesses reputation.

Of course this has to be done with integrity and heart – you only sell a package when you know it’s the RIGHT thing to sell your clients!

What packages can you sell in your business?

A PRODUCT: Migraine Product

If you sell a migraine product and only sell customers what they ask for, you are not right-selling them, especially if you know that people that suffer from migraines often suffer from insomnia and lethargy. By packaging products in groups you can let them know you are the expert by selling them the Migraine Relief Package that consists of 3 products; Migraine, Sleep and Energy – this is truly being the EXPERT and RIGHT-SELLING the clients.

A SERVICE: Bookkeeper/Accountant

As a bookkeeper you know that it’s best for a client to have their books done weekly or monthly or daily dependent on the size and type of business. If you ask a client how frequently they would like their books checked and updated, and you know it should be weekly, you are doing them a disservice.

What are some of the KEY things to focus on – starting NOW!

  1. What can you do to RIGHT-SELL your clients?
  2. What packages can you create that you believe you can sell? Remember to keep your packages simple, create VALUE and make them a better price than individual units, sessions, etc.
  3. It’s also recommended to keep the number of packages to 3 – too many creates confusion.
  4. Think about what your product or service does for the customer in terms of days/weeks/months after they have used it. What could they be experiencing that you could call and check-in with them about? Example: If you start a body cleanse and you drink a lot of coffee you will possibly experience headaches – you can call 48 hours after the start of the program and check-in with the client. Let them know you are the expert and what they may be experiencing. It’s amazing.

What can you do to increase your CONFIDENCE in what you sell?

  1. You are an EXPERTS in your own right – own it!

Finally, remember that packages, programs, etc. do not sell themselves… FOLLOW-UP is critical!

Learn To Unlock Your Inner Potential!! It Maybe Time To Let Go Of Your Limiting Beliefs, That Are Stopping You From Achieving Your Success…

How Beliefs Are Impacting Your Business

What are foundational beliefs?

They are BELIEFS that make up who we are as human-beings, because what you have to realize is that BELIEFS are what drive us forward or hold us back. We can draw so many conclusions from our belief systems – simply, we can leave a voice mail for a client and they do not return the call – our belief around the situation might be that the client is not interested or does not want to talk with us!

Yet, until you clarify and verify the belief, it is just a belief! That you consider to be right! In fact, you may even defend the belief not even knowing the truth… we sure are complicated beings!

Many people are busy and often forget to call back, maybe somebody takes the message and does not give it to them or possibly technology fails (yes, it does sometimes) and they just don’t get the message – how do you know the truth? When you finally connect and ask, which is verifying and clarifying your belief.

Are your beliefs holding you back in your business? Hopefully, that will get you thinking about all areas of your business and how your beliefs could be impacting your profitability and growth.

Now lets bring in the next level of understanding of beliefs. You cannot think success and feel failure! You have to have the feelings in your body in line with your thoughts. This is why some people never get what they want, because they are thinking positive and wanting huge success, yet deep down their foundational beliefs never believe it will happen or that once they obtain success they will become an ugly person or arrogant or even lose everything.

You have to have your feelings in line with your thoughts to maximize results!

This is in every area of your life… not just in business.

You cannot feel broke and think rich… sadly, you will always be broke!

Bottom line is… you have to change your programming to change your feelings to change your thoughts to achieve massive abundance in all areas of your LIFE!
