LET’S TALK ABOUT TRAFFIC LEADS, SALES AND MORE
In this article, I will be talking specifically about the second income generator in the entire home-based business industry. Now, when it comes to traffic and leads, everyone says that. They’re both the bloodline of anyone’s business. However, the shocking truth is that although both traffic and leads are essential. It’s sales that are the specific bloodline of anyone’s business.
Typically most people within this area of work only discuss traffic, leads, and sales. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of education, coaching, and training. Yes, education, coaching as well as training fall into the second income/revenue-generating genre as well.
LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!
Allow me to put you up on game if you will. I got started in the home-based business genre during the summer of 2009. In all honesty, it took me from 2009 to the summer of 2016 for me to learn the ins and outs about this profession. Sadly before that, no-one told me the key elements that are needed for success. The fact of the matter is that you have to become educated, skilled, and prepared.
Therefore, for you to become educated, skilled, and prepared someone that has more skills and experience than yourself. Has to teach as well as provide you with everything that it is that you need to know from the good, bad, ugly, pros, cons, and rewards.
Having access to information such as this will help you. In making the right actions and behaviors that yield results, of course, this requires you utilizing the right tools and resources. All of this is very useful in helping you to become better prepared to know what to do from the beginning.
GETTING INTO TRAFFIC, LEADS, AND SALES
Now depending on where you are in your career when you see this particular article. Meaning you may be an internet/network marketer. Perhaps you may very well be an entrepreneur with a brick and mortar business.
Therefore some of the wording that we use in the networking space. Can become very confusing to someone that’s not directly involved in the home-based business industry. Nonetheless, all businesses need traffic, leads, and sales. Traffic, leads, and sales all coincide with one another, and you cannot have one without the other.
Keep in mind that you can have all the traffic, and leads that you want. However, without sales, your business is in trouble before it can get started. Below you will see how traffic, leads, and sales work for both internet/network marketers, and entrepreneurs.
Let’s Tackle Entrepreneurs (Brick & Mortar)
- Typically this focuses on offline businesses whereas the traffic comes into these places of business. I like to refer to this as foot traffic because it requires having people to walk into your place of business physically. (Offline Traffic)
- Leads for this type of business consists of a consumer knowing what it is that they want to purchase. And exactly where they want to buy said product. (offline leads)
Internet/ Network Marketing
- Typically focuses on online businesses; therefore, this particular traffic can arrive directly. From one website onto another website because the visitor found that website to be of interest. (online traffic)
- Leads for this particular business model put simply. A website visitor that resonates with the information that’s on a specific website. So much, so that visitor preferer to receive constant updates on the subject matter from this website.
Online traffic and online leads require you to have a website — unfortunately, when you do not have a website. There’s no way possible for you to generate any traffic or leads. It does not matter whether you’re the owner of a brick and mortar business or an e-commerce and internet/network marketing business.
They require that you have the right tools and resources in place, such as lead capture and lead generation tools. So that you can, of course, capture leads in addition to using. An autoresponder so that you can follow up with those particular leads.
With that said, the offline way to physically generate leads. Would be for you to have voicemail installed. Or a go super old school with an answering machine so that you can capture the names of those persons that call your place of business. However, it’s your job to call those persons back and follow up with them. Sadly if you’re not willing to do any of these things, then you can forget about generating any sales.
SUCCESS REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE & ACTION
Everyone likes to run with the narrative of knowledge being power. Unfortunately, that isn’t true at all because knowledge doesn’t become power. Until you implement some form of action with the newfound knowledge that you have.
I say that because of the 90% 100% of people that enter into this line of work. Believe that this genre of business is a walk in the park and that success. Is going to fall out of the sky and land onto the lap. All because of the notion that no experience or skills are required to succeed in this particular business model.
Allow me to be the bearer of bad news yet again to generate any amount of success, my friend. Is going to take you having an education and some skills and this exactly why I’m stressing the point. That you seriously need to get that education, coaching, and training as well as. All the tools and resources that are necessary for success.
PUT YOURSELF IN POSITION FOR SUCCESS
The bottom line is that you cannot obtain success by way of wishing on a star. Yes, there is a lot for you to learn in the beginning. Therefore, it’s going to take time for you to learn everything. Such as the good, bad, ugly, pros, cons, rewards, and everything in between. For instance, learning how to create and build your brand and professionally personalized website.
Now to generate traffic, leads, and sales, you need to get yourself a professional and solidified coach, mentor, and trainer. To provide you with adequate education, coaching, and training that’s necessary for success. Along with the tools and other resources that you’ll need. I say this because it’s a lot of fakes and phonies online; therefore, you need to be able to tell the difference between the real and fake.
The fake coach, mentor, and leader will tell you that no experience or skills are needed for success. You just learned the truth here, so when they approach you with anything different. You already know that it’s a straight-up lie. Next, these so-called gurus will also tell you that success is instant; hence, the “overnight success” that a lot of people. Send their entire time in the industry looking for only to quit.
Because they couldn’t attain the instant overnight success that they were indeed promised. I could type for hours on this very topic. Because it’s something that I’m very passionate about, however, my point is you need education, skills, and a website despite what these “fake people” tell you. Hey if you want to position yourself in front of the right information so that you can learn how to market yourself and your business correctly.
