Long before the coronavirus outbreak struck, working from home was introduced in some companies around the world. Nobody expected it to become so quickly a must and a big challenge for a lot of white-collar employees.
When you are home all day, there are many ways to get distracted. The TV stares at you and it is tempting you to have a sneak peek on your favourite Netflix series or movie. The couch looks so inviting to sit down to watch TV maybe only 1 hour or so.
You could do the cleaning and tidy up of your home, or maybe you could do the ironing.
Or you could call a friend and talk a couple of minutes. Working from home has many temptations around the corner.
It is so easy to fall into this trap when you know there is no one around who holds you accountable. Establishing a routine and a schedule on what you should do is essential. Stay on top of all your tasks with these simple tips.
Devote some time to a 15-minute meditation to clear your head and align yourself.
Not everyone is a friend of meditation but there are many ways to get you into the right mindset.
Have a hot cup of coffee to start your day.
Create a mental To-do list for you on what you want to achieve today.
Have a walk
Do some exercise
Do whatever sets the mood for you to get going.
3.Get ready for the day.
Working from home does not mean you can sit around the whole day in your pyjamas with the television on in the background. Take this picture out of your mind. That is not how it works.
It is the same as you would be working from an office. To be successful, you have to set yourself up for success. You have to taste it, see it, feel it, hear it, and of course, want it. ( Free webinar Winning the game of money)
Get dressed and start your day as you would going to an office. It is so much easier being dressed up and talking on the phone to a customer or a team member as when you are in your pyjamas.
Tip of the day.Every day before you start, set an intention for today.
4.It is vital that you get into a routine or rhythm to perform at your best.
One of the most important things you have to do is establish working hours and break times.
Even working from home is flexible, you need rhythm and a routine.
You know procrastination will kick in when you are most vulnerable and that is normally the time when your bio clock is at the lowest. Any distractions that lead to procrastination is bad. Having routine cuts out those little distractions by 60%.
5. Dedicate a space where you can work from home in peace.
It is vital that when you are working from home that you have a place where you work and where you are not disturbed by your kids and other members of the household.
You might be able to work on your kitchen table or work from your balcony when the weather is excellent. Where you work is up to you, but you need to be able to concentrate and be productive, not busy.
7. Sit comfortable and align your back
People can work in many positions. Some people can work in bed or on a sofa for hours. Whenever you do not have a working desk available, make sure you got a small table in reach of you. Even if you do not have to work with a lot of papers and documents around you.
It is always good to have a side table handy for a glass of water and your phone.
You can also use a c-table for the comfort of your neck and posture.
Some people love sitting on the floor than prop yourself with a couple of throw pillows to maintain proper body alignment.
The best way to work is by sitting on a table with a proper chair and back support. Use the kitchen table or whatever is available. It is important that you can work in peace and are not distracted.
8. Track your Time
Be aware of how you spend your time. Answering emails and or getting sidetracked on social media. How many hours do you spend on the phone? Streamlining some of your tasks might be a good idea to keep you productive. Use Rescue Time to track your time and record your productivity.
Work with the 80/20 rule to get most out of your day.
What counts in the end of the day is that you know you accomplished the tasks you set out. Ending the day with being satisfied and happy in crossing off the to-do list is rewarding in itself.
10.Set a Timer for your breaks
Find out what is your attention span, and when you lose focus.
Set your timer for a period of time and get up from your computer to stretch your legs, go to the Restroom or walk around and get fresh air.
It is suitable for your eyes to get off the screen and look into the distance for a while. Getting off the computer screen also means not looking at your phone screen.
You can get a snack too, or get some Vitamin D when you go outside to boost your immune system. When it is rainy weather than turn on all the lights to get you out of that mood, a rainy day brings with it.
11. Don’t Multitasks stay on Monotasking?
When you focus on your work and finish one task at a time, you are much more productive.
Focusing on many tasks all at once will make you busy but not productive.
Get one task done well vs three tasks done poorly.
The Corona Crisis and the message to the world. Is there a hidden message in the outbreak of COVID 19?
Today in the morning, when I was sitting down for meditation, something came into my mind.
What if the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic is a message to us. The Universe wants to tell us something a hidden message to the world.
What is the Corona Virus aka Covid 19 according to WHO?
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
Common signs 0f Covid 19 include…
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
Here is a map of all the countries affected by the Covid 19
When it all started ...
The initial outbreak in Wuhan spread rapidly, affecting other parts of China. Cases were soon detected in several other countries. Outbreaks and clusters of the disease have since been observed in Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa and the Americas. Governments all over the world are working closely together. Source: https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/novel-coronavirus-china
We all know that the Covid 19 epidemic has his good and bad sites. China has done his best to keep the Corona outbreak under control. In this world what we live now diseases spread quicker as everyone has the choice of freedom to travel.
When Mother Nature has enough it will teach the children of the earth a lesson. Is this the lesson we should learn?
Does the Corona Virus bring us closer to each other?
The Italian Nation are singing from Balconies and taking life easy. A feeling of togetherness appears. Everywhere in the world slowing down and reducing the CO2 emission footprint here on earth. Air pollution, CO2 emission has reduced drastically across the globe. COVID19 has made the world look at life differently.
Yes, all this brings fear
there is noise
there is resentment
there is panic buying
it is uncertainness
there is sickness
there is isolation
and yes there is even death
but after all the noise traffic and services slow down, we reduce our footprint globally
You can hear the birds chirping, and you remember the beauty of nature.
You have time to reflect
Air Pollution and CO2 emissions reduced drastically
Rivers, Canals and Ocean clearing up
Dolphins return to the ocean in Italy
In the streets of Italy people singing to each other from the balconies.
People keep their windows open so that those people who are alone may hear the sounds of family around them.
Churches, Synagogues, mosque, and temples preparing to welcome the homeless, the sick and the weary.
All over the world people reflecting on their life. People open their heart and looking at their neighbours in a new way.
In every part of the world people waking up to a new reality… to how big we really are, how little control we really have, shifting priorities and what really matters.
Is there a message hidden in the Covid 19 pandemic.
All over the world people spread love without thinking of it, they give, help, support and show compassion towards each other.
We seem to understand that when there is fear there is no need for hate
When there is isolation but there does not need to be loneliness
Yes, there is panic buying but there does not need to be meanness
There is a sickness but that disease does not take over our soul
Yes, there is death, but there can always be a rebirth of love
Yes, we remember when we practise loving kindness and compassion we are the first ones who profit.
We know love and compassion are necessities and not luxuries without them humanity can not survive.
Today we breathe and listen. Behind the factory noises of your panic, the birds are singing again.
The sky is clearing, Spring is coming and we are encompassed by love. Open the windows of your soul and tough you may not touch across the empty square sing, open your heart and inhale the love of the world. Feel it, with every part of your body… embrace it and let it sink into your heart keep it there and don’t let it go.
We can’t heal the world today, but we can begin with a voice of compassion, a heart of love and an act of kindness.
You can not go through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
We will get through the COVID 19 Pandemic. Together we are strong.
Be grateful for what you have. Bless in silence the people around you.
Be in peace with yourself.
Be blessed with pure love, pure light and pure source energy.
Some great copywriters are Jim Edwards and Gary Halbert. Today you will find a few tips on how to use words that sell and improve your copywriting.
The first Copywriting Excerciseis mental copywriting. Yes, you heard right mental copywriting.
What is mental copywriting… Quickly explained whenever you see an ad, you think to yourself how could you make that ad better.
Example: When you drive down the street, and you see on the street side an Mc Donald Billboard. There is a picture of the Big Mac with French Fries. “It says “Think Big get a Big Mac.” In your head, you should not be thinking how the big Mac will taste with a fresh cold coke, no you will be thinking how could you make this Billboard ad better.
So you are going to rewrite mentally that ad, like “Think Big get a Big Mac at Mc Donalds 2 miles from here. “
Or when you have a doctor’s visit, and you see the magazines lying on the table, grab one and look at the ads. Do mental training.
Maybe you see one of those electric dog water bowls, where the water is flowing. The ad says: “Best electric water bowl for dogs with long ears. “Rethink and rewrite this ad mentally in your mind so that a customer would buy that water bowl immediately.
You could say: The best electric water bowl specially made for dogs with long ears.

Please understand you will save many files. It is important that you go through from time to time and declutter your computer get rid of what you do not need. ( If you do not systemize your swipe file you will be drowning and spend hours in searching for things.
What should be going into a swipe file?
Now, what is supposed to go in a swipe file? Well, I always save things that make me click on them, I say things that make me sign up, I look at my competitor’s sales copies and save some I find appealing.
I save things that make me laugh, and I also keep things that make me go wow,
Now the purpose of this swipe file is that later when you’re trying to think of something, and you’re running out of ideas you can go back to your swipe file and start browsing through it and get ideas right away.
For example, if I’m trying to write a sales page.
I’m at the price section, and I am running out of ideas,
In my swipe file, there is a section that is called pricing.
I go there and look through to see how other people structure their pricing pages.
I get some inspiration or copy the idea if it is good. Make sure you keep from your Sales Letter or Advertising campaign a copy too. I could take some inspiration or just flat-out copy some of those, so make sure to keep your swipe file.
Copywriting exercise Number four. Trim, Trim, Trim …
The whole goal of copywriting is to take information from one brain and transmit it to a bunch of other minds.
The point of copywriting is not to hit a specified length on an article or to get fancy.
In short, the point is to get across information from one brain to the other—the more concise, the better. How long a sales copy depends on the product and the audience. Some say at least 500 words some say less than 200 words.
It is up to you, and you have to try to get your message across. One thing is for sure people do not want to read a novel as a sales copy. Think about yourself. How much would you read when you are ready to buy something.
There is NEVER one size fits all.
Secret Tip only for you.
Most Marketers make this mistake and wonder why the sales are slow.
One thing most people make online is that they do not segment their traffic. That means they give the wrong message to the wrong audience.
So instead read your copy out loud, do it at your desktop, speak into a microphone and record it than listen to it. You can also use voice to text, and it will write it out itself.
Sometimes when you dictate your thoughts, it is easier than to write them into an excellent sales copy.
From there you can listen to it and you can decide if it is boring, fantastic or just an article that puts people to sleep. If you find it is an absolute fantastic copy that people get excited over it than use it put it to work and make money with it.
Push some boundaries and see how it sounds, sometimes we have to spice it up a bit to make the text in our sales copy look sexy and sound exciting.
Those are six of the best copywriting tips for you to write a better sales copy that will convert.
Yes, you can outsource it, before you outsource you must know what you want as if you do not understand copywriting than delegate it to others is difficult and might not give you the result you expect.

Neil Patel is always a go-to guy who has lots of information for his readers.
Went looking for some affiliate programs on google. Did the normal thing like searched and came across a wealthy affiliate review from one of the members called Nathaniel.
Curious and excited I signed up I had no idea what I am getting into too. It was a nightmare as first time on the platform I did not know what to look for. I got an email from Kyle and followed his instructions, it was so easy.
Starting the free starter training with the 10+10 free videos was amazing. It felt like heaven, all in one place. I set up my profile and build my website. It was so exciting. For the first time in a long time, I produced results.
After that, I was all keen to join and make a living online, but as always life kicks in and I had to get back to my day job. ( been there right)
So for one month, I did not pay much attention to Wealthy Affiliate even I made myself notes to do that and this but could not get around it. Work and family life became so busy.

How many hours and how many days do you want to waste going through videos and blogs to find the solution you need to start in making money online.
“My advice you can always trade time for money, but Time you can not recover the money you can” Would you rather make money now or waste time and make money a few years later.

Making Money online sounds easy, it isn’t. Making money online is a commitment on your part to give up some of your free time and make this business work.
Why People fail because they are not ready to make a commitment, and take action. You have to give up your spare time to take action to make this online business successful. Most People have the passion to start their own online business, but they lack the commitment to take action.

The Negative Side of Wealthy Affiliate.
What would I say about the negative Side of Wealthy Affiliate ( I am talking here from my personal experience)
Wealthy Affiliate is not for everyone, there are people who love to learn a business from the start and make a paycheck every month on a steady and increasing mode, and there are people who believe they can make money overnight and get rich quick without lifting a finger. This is not with Wealthy Affiliate.
You will need to invest your time and work. If you want to be a Millionaire overnight, please go and play the lottery the chances that you hit the jackpot is 1 to 100.000.000. Good luck.
What can you do when you are overwhelmed?
1. Well Wealthy Affiliate is highly addictive and when you wake up in the morning and you have 50+ emails in your inbox you try to finish them all, you get sidetracked reading all of them responding to them and the time does not stop “2 hours easy gone. ” It took some time to figure it out. How to arrange it. This is one thing that you have to figure out and organize it yourself.
The second part is information overflow. You have to organize your intake yourself. Set your learning pace.
It can be quite overwhelming and it might start to make you feel uncomfortable. Why?
2. The ranking system inside Wealthy Affiliate is a bit distracting, members do concentrate on ranking, and getting a bit annoyed when their rank is slipping into the thousand.
It depends on each person if it is important to them or not. The one thing is for sure the internal ranking will not get you a paycheck, it will only take your time. The negative side of it is that you might get sidetracked with ranking.
The blogs you write inside Wealthy Affiliate will also rank quickly as Wealthy Affiliate has a high Domain and Page Authority.
3. Sometimes members respond to a question with no answer and that is something I guess Wealthy Affiliatecannot change as it depends on the human input. What I mean is someone post a problem and that people answer with ” Interesting like to know the answer too”. You might stick with your problem for a couple of days, as not every member is an expert and can give expert advice.
In general, the site support and the support is good, but like every system, there are some flaws. If you ask now why Kyle is not answering. He is and I don’t want to make excuses but if you have 1.300.000 members at Wealthy Affiliate it is not possible for Kyle to respond immediately.
Kyle and Carson are very busy and they are upgrading on a continued base the platform. In general, you will get an answer from Kyle just not the same day or immediately.
I would say that Wealthy Affiliate is a great Platform and learning University for Affiliate Marketers. For beginners and advanced marketers. ( Alone for the free website hosting and the weekly webinars.)
In my Review, I would give Wealthy Affiliate a 90 out of 100.
Why 90 out of 100, there is still room to improve but for a work from home business, this is one of the best programs. The updates are continuously and the information and training you receive are 9 stars for me.
If you are exhausted from reading this and don’t want to scroll up again here is the link again with the discount. ( Discount applies to 7 Days when you join)
Learn to earn extra money online, see what over 1.300.000 people are doing right now, that is generating for them some good income online.
All set ready to go …

Say No to Fear and say Yes to Transforming your Fear into the Fuel to success.
Wow, we are already on the 7th of January 2020. Time has gone so fast and 2019 went in a blink of an eye.
The New Year arrived so quick, at least for me. Time flew by and now is the time again to set goals, intentions and resolutions. I am not very good at setting long term goals but I have learned that it is a process that keeps me focused and successful.
How many of us will actually see through to the end? I have friends (and I was for years the same) they set high goals, but by the end of March all is back to square one, and the goals are just to difficult to achieve or as one of my good friends says, when life kicks in we follow and obey.
I was following this trend for a couple of years, and I figured out it is not the life that kicks in it is FEAR. You can argue with me about that but what is the reason you do not achieve your goals?
Fear is in our daily life. What would life be without it?
Fear gets to the best of us, whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, fear of change or even fear of fear.
We all have experienced fear to some point in our lives, and it can be a big block or obstacle that is holding us back to achieve our goals and being truly successful.
No need to panic, there is a solution for everything. You can conquer your fear in simple and easy steps.
As it is a time to change and a new beginning I love to give you a gift.

Celebrities and high achievers are known to use vision boards to achieve their goals. Why vision boards are a powerful tool.
What Exactly is a Vision Board?
A Vision Board is made out of a Board and pictures. You can buy those poster boards in most of the stores like Walmart in the office supply section.
There are different types of vision boards. The poster board is actually the first one what is used by many people like entrepreneurs and celebrities. Later on, it was expanded and digital vision boards became popular.
So you are at a point where you need to see some income? Your blog or website is not doing so well, and you are running slowly out of passion and of cash $$. Let’s make money online.
Yes, you know that you actually can make money online,…
but you have not just yet figured it out how those $$$$$ flow into your life. Right.
What is the best way to make money online? I have asked myself this many times.
What you need is a computer, phone or tablet and of course Internet access. I will show you 9 websites where you can actually make cash, or if you are really serious some real good Money. Are you excited yet, Yes… then let’s get started.
The part I liked most is that you do not need to quit your 9 to 5 Job. You can do it in your Free Time.
Two distinct ways of Making Money on the Internet
The first is an active Income. It is like your regular 9-5 Job. You only get paid for the work you do. If you do not work, you don’t make money it is as simple as that.
The second way is through Passive Income. This is my favourite Method because, with passive Income, all you do is put in the workforce once, and the Money, in theory, should keep rolling in, without you having to do any more work other than maybe promoting what you have made, or in some cases what other people have made. Let’s get rolling ….
With Upwork you are making active income. Businesses and Individuals post services on Upwork that they like to outsource such as article writing, video editing, app development, coding, and so much more.
There are tons of jobs and services being outsourced on Upwork. The beauty of all that is it is a low barrier of entry, and you just have to be good at something.
If there is something, you are good at maybe graphic design or coding or just about any skill, head over to Upwork and start making some money.
A Tip when you are considering signing up for Upwork.
Have a robust and transparent profile that looks good. That will drastically increase your likelihood of ever receiving job offers, from potential clients. Displaying your best work or highlighting specific experience can and will help you stand out.
Many people know this, but not many take advantage of it. If you are considering getting into YouTube to make money, make sure you understand one thing clearly. Thanks to the new rules, if you are planning on starting a brand-new channel from scratch, you first have to reach the YouTube minimum threshold to get monetized.
Which means you need 4000 watch hours, and 1000 subscribers in the last 12 months.
Once you reached that, you can get monetized.
Want to learn the weird secret to make $2,000 per month on Youtube?
The more views you are getting, the more money you can expect to make, and also you get more subscribers. With YouTube, what you are earning is passive Income, make a few videos, and they should keep making you money consistently. You can also make money with YouTube through paid sponsorship, but with paid sponsorships, you need a large audience, usually 10K subscribers to do that. You can also make money through Affiliates, but we will get to that later.
Although Jeff Bezos did start off the company selling books, Amazon now sells almost anything you can think of. It is not just a site for buying your favourite books though, you can actually make money with Amazon.
There are 3 ways you can do that.
The 1st way is Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Mechanical Turk is kinda like Up works, it’s a place where businesses outsource work that is difficult for a computer program to do.
Such as audio editing, translating audio and video from different languages, testing webpages, writing reviews, and a whole lot of other services.
You can make as much as $20 -$30 an hour, by working on a few different tasks.
You do not have to be an established author or find a publishing company to do this. You can do this from the comfort of your home, with Kindle eBooks you can start earning Passive Income.
Sounds excellent and believe it or not it is free to sign up and to start.

Then once they buy something from you, you will pay the manufacturer, usually for a lot less than what you got it for, and then you have the manufacturer ship it to the customer. All without you ever seeing or touching the product. The best part of dropshipping is that you set your own price of the product you want to sell.

Social Media Marketing An Everchanging Game You Have To Keep Up With If You Want To Stay In The Loop.
Why? Because Social Media is changing and some of the social media networks realize there is a potential financial gain in these Market with the Social Network and Marketing Niche.
6 Tips to make you a better marketer, a better entrepreneur and create more engaging content with your audience.
Social Network and Marketing is a subject that changes far too often. There is secret to Social Network Marketing, and many marketers know it, but only a few using it and execute it.
1.Facebook Ads Platform all you need to know.
Facebook Ads are perhaps the best form of online advertising around today. There is not one marketer who has not heard of Facebook ads. When used efficiently and strategically it is a great tool to use for placing ads.
Facebook has over two billion users around the world and the Facebook platform collects so much data from these users, yes including you and me.
You can leverage that data to your advantage to reach potential customers and clients of your business.
However, the key is to run targeted ads on Facebook, and you can do that by building what is known as a custom audience through the Facebook Ads Manager Platform.
There are a few things you can do here… One of it is if you have a CRM (Customer Relation Management ) of any kind or if you have an email list you can import that data right into Facebook.
Any time you run ads even if your ad budget is as little as five to ten dollars you can ensure that those ads that you run are seen by the right audience.
When you run a Facebook Ad you need to know what is your objective.
Is it to buy clicks,
is it to purchase engagement,
is it to buy views,
is it to buy leads,
make sure that you are targeted with what your objective is in addition to your audience.
Once again when you are spending money on Facebook Ads you should not just throw your money because you want to get more views on a video, or want to get the necessary comment to that video, what you want to get is buyers or conversions. Be clear about your objective, and it is tailored to what your end game is.
The best way to stay in the loop is with Social Media Marketing. Don’t say no to get more leads and more conversions.
You can use more than one social media network but you should know the rules, and you should master them.
2. Use Instagram and Twitter as Search Engines. What?
Let’s face it these social networks nowadays provide end-users with a lot of data and easy access to reach people. You can go on Twitter right now, and type in any search phrase. If you want to work with any business, you can type in their executive and or company name and find what you are looking for.
If you are a creator or an influencer and you want to get their attention say Companies like Nike,Puma or Addidas, you can go on Twitter and type in “at Nike “and click on people that come up with the search term “at Nike” in their profile on Twitter. Try it out…
Ohhh …I know what you are thinking now and you rightly ask isn’t the game to drive people back to your website? The answer is yes and no …. What??
If you are trying to grow your personal brand as a thought leader in your industry, and if you are trying to get more views on your Content yes you can drive people to your website, and now you are fighting an uphill battle of sending people to a channel that you are responsible for driving traffic to.
What you can do is create Content on established social networks and platforms like say, Medium,Blog Lovin,LinkedIn, you can apply for being a contributor on different blogs that are relevant to your industry.
Understand the game.
By creating Content on this 3rd party platforms now, you are tapping into the benefit of the traffic that visits that websites. For example : Many of you reading this blog right now on Bloglovin, or on Entrepreneur.com where I am an active contributor.
The Entrepreneur.comis an iconic brand with over a million followers and subscribers on social media in addition to visitors that go to their website.
In short, what I am trying to say is as a thought leader in marketing and social media networking you can either try to drive people from say Instagram over to your own website or instead you can contribute Content for an established incredible news media outlet like Entrepreneur.com and tap into the reach that they provide.
A piece of good advice to all of you out there is, start focusing on creating Content on 3rd party platforms. The platforms you choose should be established and give you access and reach to a bigger to a greater audience.
4. Thousands have the same problem as you struggle with getting organic engagement?
If you struggle with getting organic engagement in any social media networks to think, about starting your own Private Mastermind Group.
Can be a Facebook Group that is private like Social Media Masterminds. Does not matter if it is …
a What’s App Chat,
a We Chat group,
a Private Group on Twitter which allows you to Create private DM groups with up to 50 people.
Start a private group so you can bring like-minded professionals and colleagues just like you into your own space.
By creating your own mastermind group, you can control the conversations and steer them in a way where if you have Content that is fresh and relevant for the audience.
You can share directly with those others say group members without coming across as being self-promotional.
You can also look at Content what other people are posting without having to sift through hundreds if not thousands of accounts as well.
Private Mastermind Groups going to be a big trend going forward.
Let’s face it as marketers are losing reach and having to spend money on social media where their mind is racing too, how can I defeat and outwit the system.
Guess what you can’t trick the system but you can within the rules of the system.
I recommend if you are struggling with getting reach then analyze who are your superfans, who are the people that are most interested in your Content.
Guess what …invite them into a private group most recently I did this on Twitter as an experiment.
I went through and just start adding into a group the top 50 people that often Engage with my Content.
People who like my Content,
Share my Content,
Comment on my Content
It was like magic when I invited these 50 people into one group. Doesn’t matter what your branding is it works.
So say we create a group called Lifestylebiz you can create a group and invite people and guess what you can grow this group and sell to them to your own audience.
Recently I went to a Life Style Conference where a fitness sales professional came to my keynote. She walked away and said you know what I am going to run over to Facebook and create a Facebook group for Fitness Enthusiasts.
If I get all these Fitness enthusiasts into a group now guess what I can sell to them without having to run ads.
That is my recommendation to you. Start creating small privatized communities. Important Note of advice.
Stay informed what is happening on other social networks but don’t go chasing new shiny objects. What that means is do not chase the trends. Why because you will hear there is a new social network and don’t just rush to go jump on it.
I know every thought leader, and guru out there says go, land, grab and go get as many people you possibly can on this new social networks. Click Here
Guess what happens when you go to rush over to all these new social networks as we saw in 2018 with Save Arrow or Web Talk what you are doing is you are engaging with probably the same people in your space that already on Instagram, Pinterest, Snap Chat, Facebook and Twitter.
Believe me, these are people that are doing the same thing that you are trying to do.
My recommendations are instead of going to chase that new shiny object work with your existing Infrastructure what exists.
You have access to over 2 billion Facebook users, over 1 billion active Instagram users, Twitter, LinkedIn these are social networks which I can almost assure you, will give you more value and more immediate reach than any new social network that you can jump on.
6. A new trend that brings you more traffic and you more shares
Make sure that as you are going to different places specifically as you are sharing your Content on Instagram, you want to tag where you at.
The reason why is because as you are going to these places and sharing Content, other people are doing the same, or they are looking for Content in these venues.
If you go to a sporting event, for example, I live in Singapore and if I go to the F1 Grand Prix 2019 Night Racing I am going to different places like Marina Bay Sands, and I want my Content to be indexed within the Marina Bay Sands because this is all about discoverability.
So once again throughout 2020 make sure that not only are you paying to optimize your content and get additional reach. A great way to schedule your pins is with Tailwind.
You can also do a couple of easy tips and tricks to get more organic traffic, and it starts with tagging the places where you visit and post Content on Instagram or Facebook.
So that is it, thank you for reading this social media network and marketing tutorial. Keep those 6 Tips for Social Network and Marketing in your mind. If you found this Content useful be sure to drop a comment below, and also I appreciate it if you can share with your social network.
Would you love to know, how you could learn Internet Marketing and start your own business?
If you look at it that means that out of 100 online businesses only 10 survive.
The idea of working from home sounds great and looks like an ideal solution for many. Lots of people who are unhappy in their job will fall for the promise of the fast money making scam (also called shiny object syndrome) to get rich overnight and earn thousands of Dollars $$$$$ while you sleep.
Those people quit their job and jump right into the internet marketing business. People fail because they jump into it without knowledge of what they are doing, no prior knowledge of what is expected and one main problem is that they try to do it themselves without help, trying to reinvent the wheel again.
Why is the failure rate so high? There are a number of reasons.
1. Lots of people are not prepared and understand what they get into.
2. Some people are desperate and fall for the online scams.
3. Lot’s of people do not understand the basic quote ” If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail”
4. People are alone and do not realize that there are learning platforms out there who teach all step by step.
Learn Internet marketing step by step with the support of a great community. No promise of becoming rich overnight. 7 Day Free Trial no Credit card required.
Lots of Network Marketers quit before they become successful.
When you are in the online marketing world and you are successful then you understand the struggles you will go through, the ups and downs of emotion.
The only difference is how people handle the ups and downs. That, in fact, determines if you succeed or fail.
Every Network Marketer can confirm that one day you are in the clouds and the next day you are on the bottom … question yourself why you are doing this and does it actually work.
Let me give you a bit of my experience. When I had a real good week of sales and the next week it was so slow that I was wondering what I am doing, doubting myself and having all different thoughts and voices in my head. I felt like the ocean with big waves that throw me up and down. I was working full time and at the same time started the online business.
I struggled for the first six to 9 month, and I thought that should be easy? you must be joking. Whoever told me that should be … I realised around in the 3rd month that I need a system and a proper mindset to keep myself motivated and to go.

Network Marketing requires a Lot of Discipline.Is Discipline the key to success?
It is so easy when working at home getting distracted and do other things. When you start, and you do not set out your goals and hold yourself responsible you are doomed to fail.
Lots of people joining the Online marketing never owned a business before, they have been an employee their whole life and don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that.
When you start a business, you have to be self-disciplined, and you need to manage your time wisely and efficiently. A lot of planning is involved, and that goes from the day to week, to month and 6-month plan.
Changing your mindset is essential to succeed.
Changing an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset is not so easy and needs some training.
The downside is you need to put in the work even you do not feel like it. When others go out for the weekend, you have to stay and work on your business. If you do not make your Business high priority and you treat your side business as a hobby, it will always remain a hobby.
I know this step is hard moving from hobby to business. But if you do not take that step and keep it a high priority life will get in the way and it will take over your time.
You need to work at least 3 hours a day and at least 10 hours on the weekend on your side business if you can not do that you will get bored and after a while, you lose interest and give up.
Can you make a decision that will influence the outcome of your online business?
Making a decision is for many a struggle. But when you follow on a time schedule you need to decide on the priority tasks that will make you the most money. You need to calculate your time wisely and need to get rid of all the distraction that comes into your way every single day. Lots of Network Marketers in the beginner state struggle to work out a system and priorities the tasks into daily and weekly tasks.
Many Network Marketers advanced or beginners can not afford to outsource simple tasks.
I do not like to do, some of the tasks and I do not like to spend to much time on it as I know myself when I do not like that task I will go and procrastinate.
Go into affiliate marketing and monetize your website from the beginning therefore you are able to afford outsourcing different tasks.
Learn how to monetize your site with affiliate marketing with the best affiliate platform that gives you the training you need to succeed.
Get visitors to your website and collect leads is one of the bigger struggles for network marketers.
Getting leads is one of the biggest challenges that people deal with. To succeed in Business, you need leads.
It does not matter if you have a physical business or a digital business. Without people to talk to, sell your products and explore the business opportunity you have no business.
It is like a restaurant without customers to sell your food too, you have no business, and eventually, you get bankrupt.
There are different ways to get leads, and the possibilities are endless.
A simple and efficient way is to find a good and suitable lead generation possibility and you need to decide and fine-tune what works for you.
How to get more Leads.
You can use classified ads, local events, solo ads, blogging, youtube videos, sales funnel, or opt-in pages where your visitor to your site signs up for a newsletter or receives a gift.

The next struggle for Network Marketers is Duplication.
What means Duplication? It means that when something works like an ad that you want to duplicate it over and over again.
For example: If you have an affiliate business and you run an ad and that ad works well and makes you the good income you need to know what you did and run your analytics so that you can use it over and over again.
If you have an MLM business for example: When you sign someone up you, want them to be able to go out and find a few customers or sponsors a few distributors to teach train and support their team and duplicate that over and over.
It sounds simple in the real world; it doesn’t work out that way. Do you believe that almost three out of four people who join your team going to end up quitting in less than 90 days?
They are not going to sponsor anyone, and they’re not going to find any customers they are not going on auto-ship no matter what you do to help them. It is hard to accept that, but the sooner you accept that fact and embrace that the better off you are going to be.
What is the key to duplication?
The Key to duplication is to have a simple system people can easily follow and a strong team culture that people love to be part of.
Besides, you use a simple system that is called tap- rooting, where you build depth quickly under the people you enrol, and you give them something to lose when people have something to lose then they are less likely to leave the business.
The invisible struggle of outsourcing and finding quality people.
It is hard for network marketers to find people that are leaders and doers. The truth is there are not many leaders and doers out there.
Have a look in the cooperate world most people stay in their job for years without a promotion or go as far where they do not need to make important decisions. Leaders and doers make decisions all the time and making decisions on a daily base is for a lot of people a struggle.
But that is ok we need the diversity in the people that what makes our world go around. We need all different types of people in the world to make the economy run.
The sooner you realise that the best people in network marketing typically show up in-depth rather than the people you sponsor. As you sponsor people whatever they are good or not they can lead you to quality people.
One other thing you should do is recruit up, and that means look at the people who are at the same level as you in the areas of success, knowledge and motivation. Most people they hire or recruit down as they look for the unemployed person broke a person, or someone who is struggling their whole life, that is not really who you want to recruit into your business.
They might be a great and well-educated person they are just not a prospect, and they just do not have the spark what it takes to be successful. You want people who have the same view of things as you and works as hard and determined as you.
The person you recruit should have contacts, credibility and some influence. Look for those prospects and your business will grow.
I usually look at people, and I look at people who owned a business before, or have done network marketing before, sales professionals, or know how to work on a commission base.
Use quality people in your team, when you have to say 30 people in your team, and you sponsored 5 or 6 of them you can look at the other 23 people and find the two or three who want to do something with the business and start working with them.
Attrition is a Killer in Network Marketing.
What is Attrition? It is a process of reducing something’s strength or effectiveness through sustained attack or pressure.
That is a killer in our business. It is the fact that around 65 to 70 per cent of your team is quitting the business every single year and the truth is all businesses in the real world they lose customers, and they lose employees, and online marketing is no different.
The problem with most people is that they start something but don’t finish anything. Most people give up on diets, give up on fitness and exercise. Most businesses in the real world don’t succeed; it is a fact of the real world. Network Marketing is easy to quit as you usually invest less than a $100 investment.
If you would invest one million dollars in starting a traditional franchise, you would never quit when times get tough, but you would do the opposite, and you would do everything and anything in your power to make this franchise business succeed.
That is why I say you want to build depth you give people something to lose. If they have a small team and a small check they are more likely to stay in the game.
Final thoughts from my experience that are the most common obstacles you have to overcome when you are in the online marketing world.
The Struggle for Network Marketers in the online world is real.
You have to deal with this struggles day by day until you found your way through this. Check out the winning the game of money it is a mindset program and helps you get focus and grow above yourself. Implementing a system together with the right mindset is very important to succeed in the online marketing world.
If you are thinking of making a career as a Network Marketer, then you have to learn how to overcome each one of the challenges, and there will be more challenges coming your way the higher you climb the ladder of success.
A small piece of advice
My Advice for any Network Marketer out there who are struggling in creating a system and get clarity. Understand what you sell and who you market too. Be convinced about the product you sell.
When you choose online marketing, then join a community with like-minded people as being an entrepreneur can be a lonely place.
