A R T I C L E:
Business And You Publisher Debbie Solomon What is the Hottest and
Most Achieved Phenomenon going on in the cyberworld today?
YOU GOT IT!.....
Starting your Own Business! It is so much easier to start your own
business these days. You do not need $1,000's of dollars of overhead
just to get started. Most people these days only need a computer
with internet access. There are more home businesses starting everyday.
The percentage rate is increasing faster than Gas prices are rising.
THAT IS BIG!!! So, now you realize the concerns so many people are
now encountering. With Home businesses increasing so rapidly, how
are YOU going to compete with that? That is Keyword...COMPETE! It
is a dog eat dog world out there and everyone is out to get a piece
of that American Dream. How can you beat the competition? Get to
know them. Once you have your business plan layed out, your product
line in order... the next step is to research your competition.
See what they are doing. Get ideas, write them down. Alot of businesses
are giving away FREEBIES. Everyone loves Freebies. Can't go wrong
with that. Look for FREEBIES that NO other competitor has. Look
for specials that will enhance your product line. Be DIFFERENT!
The main reason you research other competitors is to do exactly
the opposite. Sound strange? The last thing you want to do is to
be like your competitors. Why are they going to buy from you when
someone else has the same thing?
A Word Of Warning.....Do NOT be a COPYCAT!!! You will notice alot
of competitors with great graphics, great selling strategies and
a great site. This does NOT mean you will be able just copy what
they do! I see so much of that and it is sad. How will you be DIFFERENT
if you do what everyone else is doing? You can have a very common
product, add some twists to it and have one of the highest traffic
generated sites for that target market. But where do you come up
with these ideas and twists? It is called surfing the NET! You will
be amazed of what you can find out there. Here are some example
of being DIFFERENT:
**FREE E-Books is Great...but very common. The Twist....Write Your
OWN E-Book. Share your experience.
**Give away FREE Vacations. There are tons of company's that are
striving to have businesses market them on their site in exchange
for FREE Vacations. The Twist....Look for a different kind of Vacation
giveaway. Not only an island giveaway. Look for a unique vacation
**Collect helpful Tools that are related to your product or service
and Give them away. The Twist...Create a Members only site with
these tools and offer FREE Access.
**Write your own newsletter. The Twist...ADD Humor!
**Start your own Discussion Forum relating to your product line
or service. Offer help! The Twist....Offer everyone in the forum
a FREEBIE just for joining in on the discussion! Are you getting
the idea? All these ideas are very common. But none of them are
your own. Add those twists. It will keep you energized. It will
excite your prospects. Owning a business online or offline can really
be boring if you let it. SO DON'T LET IT! Use your imagination.
Your business is YOURS! NO one elses. NO one can tell you what you
can and cannot do. Create your dreams! Have the business you love
and most of all just ENJOY IT!
