Merry Christmas

Dear Readers,

I want to say Thank You so much for hanging in there with me throughout all these years.

When I started this blog, it was because I thought it would get me “recognized” as a serious writer, blogger, all around information giver. It’s not any of these things.

Seriously, these past months have been hard for me to even sit down and write a blog post, much less the sequel to the book I wrote called Terror In The North Tower.

Between being the caregiver to my husband and other family matters going on, I feel that I’ve neglected all of you.

This has never been my intention!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

5 Daily Methods Of Operation

image

If you’re and entrepreneur then you probably already have a DMO  (Daily Method Of Operation ). Every successful person either in business, or entrepreneurship tells me they us a daily method of operations.

Five  things I found to be very effective and they are easy enough that anyone can use them.  These simple steps will help you to obtain the level of success once you apply them into your daily routine.

Personal Development —  Having a POSITIVE mental attitude changes the way we think as a leader or an entrepreneur;  which in turn leads to change for success.  With so many ways to grab information no one can make the excuse that they don’t have time to do this.

Meditation and Exercise —  Spend at least 15 minutes a day meditating on scriptures,  a quick go to encouragement pocket book.  Exercise daily to increase your body,mind and spirit.  Exercising opens up the mind and make entrepreneurs get their creative juices flowing.  Personally I find Pilates very relaxing and it works my abs off.

Sharing  — Share your business opportunity with at least 10 new people or at the bare minimum 5 people to start building relationships and trust with. Make this a quick less than 2 minute introduction and ask them if they’re interested in watch a video,  listening to a CD, Podcast or by whatever tools you can get in front of them within the a few days.

Creating Content  —  Create content people will want to read, look at and become interested in.  Social media can work to your advantage.   Learn how to leverage the time you spend on Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, Google+,  LinkedIn and whatever other social outlet you’re using.

The Artistic Affiliate otherwise known as Lesly Federici, RN has many helpful tips for creating content. In her article titled, 5 Creative Ways to Keep Visitors Coming Back she shares many ways to make visitors “think outside the box”.   Landing pages, funnels, custom sidebars, and widgets to name a few.

Sales and Marketing Training  —  Essential to any business growth is marketing and sales.   Sales equal income in the pocketbook!!  Marketing drives interest and curiosity which leads to SALES!

The road to success takes time and it takes one step at a time to achieve the end result.

Intellifluence A New Way To Connect Your Businesses With Consumers

**This post may contain affiliate links. In the event of a sale, I get rewarded a small commission, at no extra cost to you. These funds help me keep my blog up and running to provide you with great content so thank you!**

Intellifluence is an easy way to build relationships and increase your blog, or company’s awareness and sales.

A few months ago I was web surfing for “work from home” opportunities and came across this new website opportunity called Intellifluence. After doing my due diligence, I signed up. Companies are always looking for people to review their products and share them with the masses. The internet has changed the way businesses market their products.

How Does It Work?

Using their platform allows your company to communicate directly with interested consumers, acting as the influencer. Most of the companies using this website are small businesses. With the bottom lines being right it makes marketing products even more of a challenge. Their pricing is reasonable with many options. One can cancel at any time without a penalty.

What Companies Work With Intellifluence?

All kinds of companies from Newair, Reedsy, and Simply Earth, to name a few. Any company that needs a little help to announce new products or opportunities should jump on board.

Becoming An Influencer

Once the decision is made to become an influencer click the join button and get started. I’ve made it easy for you by clicking my intellifluence link.

Once you join, you can earn badges to help promote yourself.

Getting Free Stuff and Getting Paid

What? Did I really just read that? Yes, yes you did. The beauty of signing up is some of the free sample items, money, and keeping what a collaborator pays for.

As a blogger, certain companies pitch their ideas along with the payment amount. Should you accept my advice, set up a Zelle Pay or a Venmo account for receiving payments. It’s better to be secure when it comes to your money.

Yes, I have made a few dollars and will continue my journey as an influencer. Whatever your decision I wish you all the success.
