A Year In Review…

Sierra Ranch front pasture.  Weeds killed and grass mowed. – June 2014

Today marks one year since I have become single again.  I never really thought much about where I would be at this point in the beginning.  I was too busy learning to live a life that I loved and with people that cared about me.

Now that the first year is behind me the “What to do next” bug has bitten.  I have been working on what comes next.  The first order of business what getting the horse herd to a manageable size.  I am still working on selling several of the horses.  If you are looking for a horse or a way to help the horses, then please check out the Sierra Ranch Herd Dispersal Sale.

I have started a side business and will be expanding some.  You can see the  Damsel In Defense site. (Update: Check out Stormy Orchid, LLC)  There is everything there to protect yourself and ideas on how to help others.  I have a demo kit and would love to have some parties to show off what cool products we have. Contact me and we will set something up.

Things I have learned in the last year?  Live the life you love.  Take the time to play and enjoy the people around you.  Let go of the negative folks around you.  I have lost some pretty good fur friends this last year and gained some new ones.  I have found that not all guys are scared by the fact that I shoot, am pretty good at it, and like purple guns. I know it seems I put lots of things up about having a positive attitude, but sometimes that is all you have.  I am blessed to be able to look at any situation and find the good.

Now to go work on my new project and get it ready to hit the streets soon.  Someone buy a horse so that I can get moving on this new venture.  It will be AMAZING!

Five Reasons I LOVE Marketing on the Internet

For day seven of the Post-a-Day Challenge with IM Rockstars.  And since it is for Internet Marketing Rockstars, I get to tell why I like marketing on the internet.

  1. I don’t have to talk to people.  Being an introvert makes selling in person a real challenge.  Constantly being witty and knowledgeable about your product is difficult.  I have done it, and am glad not to have to continue to do it.  Although, I did learn a lot from the real person selling.
  2. I can select the things I want to promote.  And choose things that help make the world better, hopefully.  Check out my renewable energy sites.  Yeah, I need to update them again.
  3. I can do all this on MY time frame.  As I learned over the last month, sometimes real life just gets in the way.  You have to adjust and continue.
  4. I can tie the IM efforts to things I do in real life.  I have a cat site and a neat dog site.  Now I need to build a horse site or add it on to what I am doing with the other horse sites.  (My friends have no idea how many websites I operate.)
  5. Eventually, all these sites properly promoted will create a significant residual income that will make it easier to retire.  And having time to have fun is probably the one of the more important things right now.

So if you are new to internet marketing, and want some tips on how to start check out the link at the top of this page, or contact me.  Internet marketing can be what you make of it.  Whether it promotes your business or sell your talents to folks all over the world.  It’s a great way to develop your skills. Contact me if you need help starting.

7 No Cost Tips to Market Your Business

Marketing your business can be fun, exciting and creative. It can also be very frustrating and expensive if one doesn’t know what outcome they are looking for or how to evaluate cost effective methods of marketing. Below are seven proven strategies sure to increase visibility, leads, and sales.

1. Business Cards

Business cards are often one of the most underutilized tools in one’s marketing. Make sure you use the front and back of your business card to gain full benefit. Depending on your business you can put some valuable information on the back such as a sports schedule, emergency numbers, or  dates people want to remember.

Keep cards in your wallet, your automobile, on your desk, and at home. Be sure to carry them with you wherever you go and be willing to hand them out as an opportunity presents itself.

Creatively distribute your card. I send cards in packages I mail for the business. Hand them to clerks in stores who may know other people who could use your product or service.

2. Send a picture

Keep your name fresh in a customer’s mind is to send them a picture of when they purchased a product or service from you.

Anytime a customer makes a significant purchase, have a picture taken with the shop owner. You can post itto your social media pages.  The customer then can share it with their friends.

3. Associations

Join an association and learn to network market with your colleuges in the group.

A opportunity within many organizations is the chance to network. Additionally, to make presentations. Along with presentations come publications.  Often, when you do a presentation, you will get a mention in the association newsletter, their Ezine and on their website.

4. Committee Involvement

Give back to the associations you join by being on a committee.  It’s a great way to give back and builds visibility for your business. Joining a committee where you have little experience or knowledge will give you an opportunity to stretch yourself, And will allow you to meet and network with new people.

5. Contests and Drawings

Contests are a favorite to build your database of leads quickly. Every entry into the contest is a lead that has visited your business.  The key is to follow up on all the leads and to keep them coming into your business. Think outside the box and create a contest that is unsual. This will generate more free publicity for you.

6. Cross-promoting

Fins another company that has products or services that compliment yours and promote each other. Cross-promoting is only limited by your imagination. By joining with another business you will cut the costs of promoting and both companies will get lots of new business.

7. Bonuses

Along the same lines as cross-promoting, offer special offers from businesses related to yours. This allows both companies to be represented to the customer and lets the customer get something extra. This increases the value of their purchase and keeps them returning.

Hope you enjoy these great tips and return tomorrow for another of the Post-a-Day posts.

Things I Learned This Weekend

Ranch

Sierra Ranch on July 25, 2013. Work to be done.

As with any ranch there are always things that need to be done. The work never seems to end, or you can choose what you want to see and just do the thing that needs to be done at that second.

As I have been kinda quickly placed into the status of single person after a 15 year marriage, I tend to look at all this as kinda fun.   I get to mold my ranch, and the businesses attached to it into what I want to do.  This weekend I started doing that by updating some of my websites with new pictures and information.

Here are a few things that I learned over the weekend:

Sharing a house is not fun under even the best of circumstances.  (Note: the ex is gone, but his business remains until he can relocate it.)  I can not find any tools, don’t have any gas for the lawn mowers, or even have one that wants to work.  Get down about it?  Heck no!  Find another of the million things to do.  And keep doing the thing!

Meeting a new guy for the first time you probably should not show him the rifles you think are the best prize from the divorce.  I worked in the gun business for four years and have a hard time remembering that some folks are creeped out about a gun that can hold 30 rounds.  Did it get me down that he kinda left abruptly?  Heck no!  Time to add something to my profile to let guys know I am armed, know how to use them properly, and am a good shot.  The right guy will think that is cool.

And lastly I learned it’s way past time to start doing things for myself.  I didn’t get to ride my Harley this weekend because the battery needs changing.  The ex had said just charge it, you need to ride more, ect.  Whatever!  It needs a new one.  I will go after work and buy it and then install the silly thing.  AND I will ride my freaking bike.  The freedom will be worth it!

And what does this have to do with business?  Well, I updated a few sites.  Still working on how to reword a few others and am slowly getting back to doing the thing.  What is that thing?  Depends on the day, but the most important thing is being happy!  And I am really good at that these days.

5 Ways to Stay Motivated in Your Business

Whether you’re just starting out with your business or you’ve had a business for many years, you’ll need to stay motivated if you’re going to see continual success. Everyone goes through a business slump occasionally, but it’s those who stay motivated who will reach their goals. Here are five simple ways you can stay motivated in your business.

1. Work from a List

Create a daily, weekly and even monthly list of things to do in your business. This sounds so simple, but yet a “to do” list is a powerful tool in helping you accomplish business tasks. Prioritize your list each day so you can do those things that are most important first. If you have tasks that you absolutely dread, then put those tasks at the very top of the list if possible. This will give you a free mind for the remainder of the day to concentrate on the tasks you enjoy.

A list can consist of many things, from promotion steps to phone calls to make, and even a stack of papers that must be organized on your desk. Most successful business people create a list and then check off items as they are completed. This gives a sense of accomplishment throughout the day as you complete tasks.

2. Search for New Opportunities during Slow Business Times

Having a slow time in your business? Don’t despair. And, whatever you do, don’t go apply for a job at the local fast food chain – just yet! Stay motivated by seeking out other business opportunities that may tie into your current business.

Perhaps you offer a product or service that sells very slowly during the spring months. You could seek out related products or services that would be popular during those months to offset the other in profits. This will give you a chance to make money and enjoy multiple streams of income year round!

3. Take an Online Training Course for Better Education

Educate yourself through online training courses related to your field so you can learn how to maximize your skills and profits. There are many training courses available online today in the fields of web design, graphic design, online marketing, real estate, travel, office skills, medical, insurance, and finance.

With online training, you choose only those courses that will benefit you and your work at home business. You can usually take the courses at your own leisure from home, and will pay far less than you would for a college course.

4. Expand Marketing Avenues

Don’t settle for less. Use the wisdom and experience of others who have been in business a while to expand your marketing avenues. You might consider reading after top marketers to get Internet marketing ideas. Also, there are many ways to promote your work at home business off-line.

To stay motivated, always test your efforts to see what results they bring. This is far more exciting than paying for ads and never knowing if they work or not!

5. Network with Others

Another way to stay motivated during a business slump is to network with others. Find others in related fields who can offer advice and encouragement about your business. A work at home business can be lonely at times because you never leave the house! Finding others online and off-line who do the same thing will give you an outlet for those lonely days.

Use these tips to stay motivated in your business. You deserve success, so don’t give up!
