Make Money With Niche Marketing

You can have a good income with niche marketing, but you will have to do a certain amount of work each month to keep the site up to date.

It is interesting that many people try to start their online business by selling products on how to make money online when they are not successful themselves. But there is a lot of money to make online when you start to work in non Internet Marketing niches.

The best way to earn a good income is to have either a website or a blog which you host on your own website. That way you can have total control on what you include.

Once you have decided on your niche, you need to either write your own content or have some written for you. Then you need to have some products to promote.

Now you might think this is harder to do than it actually is. Stop, and think for a moment, if you are careful about your weight, how many diet books you have bought. You may have bought many that you have never read. But anyone with a weight problem will buy every diet book in the hope to find that secret diet tip that will get them slim overnight or in a short time without any work.

When a person is passionate about a subject, they will be ready to buy anything that will further their knowledge in that niche. Time and time again, people are doing this offline, and they will not change their habits because it is now online.

It may take time for them to build up confidence in you and your site, but with good quality information they will soon be aware of how trustworthy you are.

Within your niche you will learn other areas that people want, and will be able to promote those items as well. As you develop your niche site, you will be able to move into more and more products, and you will find that you are able to earn more and more money online.

Once you have a good plan, start created as many niche sites as you can, while maintaining a high quality standard. It's OK to start off small. If you can create one 5-page niche site a week, you will be doing very well.

There is money to be made through niche marketing but like any business online you will need to do some work.

Branding Yourself For Success In Network Marketing

Branding oneself is critical if you are going to be prosperous in network marketing or MLM and more specifically if you wish to stay in this business for the longterm.

A great deal of people are actually asking me this question:

'I would like to enroll individuals into my company, how will branding myself as a leader help me to achieve this'?

People that ask this type of question bought to understand that enrolling individuals into your organization is a process and you can not neglect any steps within the process and anticipate to enroll individuals automatically.

If you decide to leverage the incredible power of the internet and market your business on the internet, you must realize that people do not know you so you will need to position your self as an MLM leader and that's where branding yourself becomes necessary.

When you are branding yourself on the internet, you are presenting yourself as an individual that has value to give and as someone who can provide solutions to other struggling network marketers.

A lot of people are in search of solutions and when they see that you have value to give, they will be naturally drawn to you and will turn out to be your lead which you can prospect and eventually sign up into your company.

If you consider large international companies, they continue to invest millions on marketing and advertising.

Why?

Mainly because they want to reinforce their brand in our minds.

In network advertising, you have to reinvigorate yourself in peoples' minds by branding yourself by means of giving value and supplying solutions to struggling network marketers.

Branding yourself is incredibly vital for these three reasons:

# 1 – People like to do business with people they like, know and trust

This is the main reason why we are taught in traditional network marketing to begin with family and friends.

However, when you have exhausted out your friends and family list, you must figure out how to tap into the market of individuals you do not know by branding yourself and standing out from all the other people pitching their businesses.

If you can invest some time into branding yourself as an MLM leader, you'll find it so much easier to attract leads to you and eventually sign them up into your company.

Always keep this in mind: people today join people, not companies.

# 2 – Regardless of what happens to your MLM company, you still have a business

What if your organization decides to close down for whatever reason, how would that affect your business?

If you have been focusing on marketing your company and not branding yourself, then you would be in a bad situation if your company does shut down for whatever reason.

However, if you have been branding yourself, it would not make a significant difference due to the fact that you would have built up a loyal following of individuals who want to work with you.

Therefore, if anything happened to your MLM company, a great percentage of the people on your list would wish to follow you wherever you go.

# 3 – Multiple income streams

In addition to your primary company, you are able to also make extra money on the internet from affiliate product sales.

Branding your self on the web will enable you to build a list of people that trust you so whenever you recommend a product that can help them, a good number of your list will purchase.

All because they already know you because of your brand and they would rather buy from you than someone they do not know.

So How Do You Begin Branding Yourself?

There are a variety of ways that can start to brand yourself on the web.

Blogging and article marketing and advertising are great ways to give value and brand yourself .

You can also cut videos on topics that will help your target audience.

Social media especially Facebook and twitter are also superb ways to brand yourself and develop your online presence.

Electricity – Ground Fault or Arc Fault

If you were asked, "Who discovered electricity?" What would be your answer? I'm almost positive (a little electric humor) that Benjamin Franklin and his kite flying tale comes to your mind. It was not electricity that Ben discovered in 1752. It was the lightning rod. In 1800, Alessandro Volta manufactured the first battery capable to deliver a constant electric current. It was Volta, not Franklin, to discover electricity.

Many of the ways we use and deliver electricity today are still the same as in the days of Franklin and Volta. Differences in electrical potential between materials cause current to flow between them. Charges can be produced by rubbing fur or cloth over a non metallic surface. Metal wires are used to transmit electrons over long distances; but one property stands out the most. Electricity can kill!

Today, we have developed many ways to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of exposure to electric current. We use circuit breakers, surge protectors, arch fault, ground fault, and equipment grounding to safely control the flow of electrons from one place to another. Two of these safely systems generate a lot of questions. What is the difference between ground fault and arc fault?

Ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI) protection has been around for a few decades. It is most commonly seen in areas where water is present. For instance, in modern homes, you will find GFCI protection in the kitchen near the sink, in the bathroom near the water sources, in garages, and any receptacles outside of your home. This type of protection guards against injury by monitoring how much current is flowing through it. If the GFCI detects a difference between the amounts of current leaving as opposed to returning, it shuts off. The missing current has to be going somewhere other than its intended destination. It's going to ground. A horrible place if you happened to be in the middle of the current as it's headed to ground.

Arc fault circuit interrupt (AFCI) protection has only been available to consumers for a few years. Like its parent GFCI, AFCI is designed to detect when electricity is not traveling to its intended destination. Unlike GFCI, AFCI is not protecting against the loss of current to ground. It is guarding against a broken conductor. These broken conductors are the primary cause of home fires in America today.

Primarily, AFCI is required in bedrooms. Bedrooms are notorious for having corded appliances, such as computers, alarm clocks, and desk or floor lamps in them. Many times the cords of these appliances are routed under beds, dressers, or carpets. This is not as safe as it looks. Cords are often cut by the items placed on them. Once severed, the broken conductor will arc. This arcing will continue until the metal is burned through or a circuit breaker trips. Often, the time between the initial cutting of the conductor and the tripping of the breaker is not quick enough and a fire breaks out. AFCI was designed to detect the initial arc caused by the severed conductor and immediately turn the power off.

In conclusion, electricity is the flow of electrons between items with differenting potential. If not properly controlled, this difference can have horrible repercussions, when people or property is in the way. Modern industry has taken great measures to protect us while using one of the most fundamental properties of nature – electricity.

Squishies – The Latest Craze Sweeping Middle Schools and Beyond

Kids are natural born collectors. They also love fads. Enter: the Squishy. These Japanese imports are the newest craze and are causing quite a stir. Not only are they hard to find, as they are not sold in your average store, most adults have never heard of them.

Today we will answer all of the common questions we receive about squishies. What are they? Squishies are soft “bread like” mascots, shaped as either a type of baked good, a character, or a combination of the two. They are the newest version of the stress ball, yet softer and more “kawaii” (the Japanese word for “cute”). Squishies are usually scented, cake or bread being the most common choice. Typically, squishies are attached to a cell phone strap or a lanyard.

Why do kids love them? Well, of course they are cute. Squishies are tactile and fun for kids to “squish” over and over, hence the name. Add in the sweet scent and you have a multiple sensory toy that can be quite irresistible.

Where did this fad come from? Like many great fads, this is another one of those fun and wacky imports from Japan. Japanese teens (and adults!) love to decorate their cell phones with fake treats, fruits and gems. This is called deco-den. You have probably seen someone with a Hello Kitty cell phone “blinged out” in this manner. In addition to making their cell phone covers as kawaii as can be, they also love to hang cute or funny straps from them. Cell phone straps are a huge trend in Japan, and have been for several years.

In trying to pin down how kids in the US have become obsessed with squishies, we seem to have narrowed it down one powerful source: YouTube. Search the word “squishies” in YouTube and you will find hundreds upon hundreds of videos all about them. On YouTube, kids, and even adults, trade squishies, show off their squishy collection and even attempt to make home made squishies. Two things are quite clear in watching these videos. A. these kids are absolutely obsessed with squishies. B. they want a lot of them, and the more “rare” the better.

Where can you find rare squishies, or even squishies in general? You will find the best variety in Japan. Of course, most parents are not willing to travel around the world for a five dollar trinket. Another place they seem to show up from time to time is in Japan Towns and even China Towns that exist in a handful of cities across the country. The easiest place to find them is right at your finger tips.
