Home Business Very Rewarding BUT But?

Important tips that will help your E-Commerce business succeed.Working from home is a dream come true for most parents. The idea of being able to stay at home and watch over your children when they are growing up is certainly something that is very attractive indeed. But all of this does not mean that everything would go as smooth as you think it would. Because when you work at home especially on a home business hoping to spend more time with your children so that you can watch them grow would mean that you now have two responsibilities at the same time.

Quite frankly within a home business, these two tasks can be overwhelming. Imagine having to get the job done. Plus at the same time you have to make sure that you have ample attention to your kids. Many times you will find that you will lose focus when working in such an environment especially if multitasking isn’t part of your strength. Besides that… things can get rather stressful at times especially when your kids are acting out of behavior and there will be times when you will have to entertain them or even get angry at them to keep them at bay.

The main home business problem would be how can you get the best of both worlds and at the same time get everything done smoothly? Here are some pointers that could prove to be very useful to those who are working from home and taking care of their kids at the same time.

Be very organized.

The first thing that will help you greatly is to learn to be very home business organized with your work environment and working method. Keep everything is in a neat order so that you will not have a problem locating the things that you need be it a real world item like your paper works or digital data that exists on your personal computer.

Being organized will also mean that you know exactly what you are about to do and how you plan to do it so you will also have a good home business to-do list that will guide you throughout the day. Without a to-do list you will feel almost lost and you might even miss out on some of the important tasks by mistake.

Using a to-do list to help you keep track of your task that needs to be done will show you just how wonderful it is to use a to-do list. The more you use it, the more you will find that the to-do list is very useful. Make sure that you list out your task properly and then try to determine the order and priority in which task needs your attention the most. When you get this right you will find that your life will be so much improved and that you will be able to get most of the task done. Furthermore you will find that you will be in control most of the time and you know exactly how to achieve your goals.

Plan ahead and schedule.

Obviously, planning and scheduling your day every single day can be the most important thing that you do to keep you on track. You will want to plan out your day accordingly and make sure that you split your time properly for both your family and your work. The good thing about working from home is that you can freely shuffle and arrange your time in any manner that you would like. However, you need to make sure that you have allowed enough time to complete your work. And the rest of the time can be used to for your family.

The good news is when you are working from home; you save quite a lot of traveling time. If you decide to cook at home you should make sure that you shop for all the groceries on the weekend so that you don’t have to waste time during the weekdays just to go shopping. For this to work, you must absolutely keep a calendar and a timetable around you so that you know exactly how much time you have for your work and your children each day. Try to finish your work faster by focusing and of course make sure that your work is of quality by doing a double check every time you complete a task. This should free you a lot more time and still get your job done without much error.

Make sure you have activities for your children that do not require your attention.

Your child could potentially be very demanding on your attention an time. But you should easily take care of this if you can think of activities or tasks that your kids can enjoy and at the same time do not require a lot of your own involvement and time. To find these tasks, you can first look at the general interests that your kids have and then think of ways to get them started with their hobbies to spend their time. Of course you will always be there to guide them.

Depending on their age, you could even ask them to help you out in some of your time consuming tasks such as some simple paperwork. Kids just love to help out their parents and feel important. Another great way to get them to help you out is to get them to help out with house chores. Train them to do the chores every day and if you want you could reward them when they do extra chores for you. The home business rewards can be any incentives ranging from the good old praise or a monetary reward. When you get this right, you should be able to get more time and focus on getting your job done fast. Remind your kids, the faster you get off work, the more time you will have to spend with them. Happy parenting while at work!

How to Get More Subscribers to your eMail List!

eMail List building seems to be the core of internet marketing these days. Everywhere you go, people will tell you just how much of an impact a list can do for your business. And this saying is actually an understatement. Perhaps the biggest discovery to modern marketing is the use of an email list to market a product. However, email List marketing in itself is not an easy task. The biggest problem one will have to face when building a list is definitely going to be how can you get more subscribers into your list?

While many will answer this question by saying how much you need to get the right traffic to your landing page that gives away an incentive or gift in exchange for an email list, one must actually look deeper into the fundamentals of list building. And to do that you must learn to think like a potential subscriber. Only when you can understand how a typical subscriber think and full understanding the entire thought process that a potential subscriber has to face before actually deciding to join your email list… will you be able to tweak your campaign for a great improvement.

Less is more.

The first thing that you need to understand when it comes to a landing page is that less is more these days. In the olden days, marketers will try to cram a lot of information into their landing page. You will see countless bullet points and benefits being listed out on a landing page. Not only that you might even see some marketers asking for a lot of information from the visitor in order to get subscribed. It is not surprising to see some old school landing page that has a video and a lot of text on it which almost make it seem like a mini sales letter.

All of that has to change because people are very busy these days and they do not have the time to go through all your materials just to get a freebie. What you need to do is to just place a powerful headline, a call to action, your most important benefit and then a quick opt-in form. The shorter and more precise your landing page is, the more people will start noticing you. Imagine landing on a page that is full of information. Not only is it very overwhelming, it can also frustrate some of your visitors and thus causing them to leave your landing page as soon as they land on it.

However, if your visitor lands on a simple landing page with a nice picture of you or your product and a quick promise to give it to them free, they will not be intimidated and instead if indeed they are interested in your incentive, they will actually give you their contact information in exchange for your gift.

Landing Pages and gifts.

Now when it comes to your landing page, we now know that we should always try to keep things simple. There are however some elements that you will absolutely need to have on your landing page. One of it is the ‘we hate spam as much as you do’ disclaimer and a little logo of the can-spam act should be placed near your opt-in form. Note that this is the industry standard to help the public battle spam and also it will help reduce the fear of getting spammed if they were to join your mailing list.

By telling your subscribers before they actually join and ensure that you will not spam them, you will see a significant increase to your opt-in rate. The next thing you want to do in order to improve your opt-in rate is that you need to make sure that your incentive or gift that you’ve prepared really matter to your target market. A lame or junk product will never get you the kind of response that you hope for. Instead make sure you are giving away gold. You’ll be surprised at just how much more response you will get with the same amount of traffic.

For example, if you are in the fishing niche, you can’t expect a good response if you are giving away an ebook that says ‘A-Z types of fish’. Instead show them your skills in fishing and send them a gift that says ‘How to fish like a pro in 7 days’. Now that is by no means a very strong title yet… but you should get the point.

The more the merrier

One of the psychological tactic you can use to improve your opt-in rate and get more subscribers is to actually get them to think that other people are doing the same thing. Hence you can use a headline that says ‘Thousands of others have downloaded this…’ or use a social button that shows all the likes from people who already downloaded your gift.

Another way to get people to see just how many other people are getting this gift from you is to actually use a download counter to show how many people before them have downloaded your gift. What this do psychologically is to show your subscribers that they are not making a mistake to join your mailing list because other people are doing the same thing as well. Humans hate to be left out so they will try their best to do what others are doing especially if they do not have the time to do all the research for themselves.

Facing objections early.

Lastly but not least, you should always try to think in the shoes of your subscribers. What could be the possible objections that they will be facing when they are on your landing page? List them all out and then address them in a point form on your landing page. But be sure to keep it short because you do not want to place too much stuff on your landing page anyway. If you can clear all their doubts in their mind you should then see a huge surge in your subscribers list very soon.
