‘Go Ahead, Trust Me . . .’

   Posted by: Phil

Go Ahead Trust Me

Hi, thanks for stopping by my Surrey Peanut Butter Cups blog. Today I want to outline some ways to establish credibility with your online blog.

For the past couple of years, I have been following several blogs relevant to the Surrey Peanut Butter Cups industry and have formed some definite opinions about the BC businesses they represent. Some have successfully established credibility in my eyes. When they recommend something, I go check it out. If they make a claim, I believe it.

Even though I have never met these Vancouver business bloggers in person, I trust them. If I was going to do business with another Peanut Butter Cups entrepreneur, I know exactly who it would be.

It is essential for any new Surrey home based business to establish credibility. In the online world, anything goes and often does. Online customers have become suspicious of marketing claims.

Surrey home business bloggers can use excerpts, quotes, and statistics to establish credibility. Here are some tips from ListPipe, the business blogging experts:

‘Some large Surrey companies have well established track records and can support their own claims. For the rest of us Surrey home business bloggers; we need to look to third-party testimony to assure our audience that we know what we’re talking about.’

Including an excerpt or quote is a great way to add credibility to your claim, but make sure the source is credible and watch for quackery. Excerpting an encyclopedia entry or research article is an excellent addition to your blog, as long as you maintain the original context and include enough to assure your readers that you are not cherry-picking.

Statistics can communicate efficacy or some other measurable metric to your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage blog readers. As with the others, the source of the material will ultimately come under scrutiny. Use studies conducted by respected BC universities and established research firms who have a reputation to protect.

With each of these methods, watch for the pitfall of adding someone else’s words to support your own; when we include excerpts, quotes, or statistics we open the door to logical fallacies, and these can work against you if they are not understood.’ http://blog.listpipe.com

Vidoes Can Help Richmond E-Tailers

Vidoes Can Help Richmond E-Tailers

It seems like everyone in Richmond has their own video on YouTube. Whether it is a shaky phone-filmed clip of their daughter’s dance solo or the winning goal in a Richmond soccer game, videos have a huge impact.

The online marketplace is like the newspapers in Harry Potter’s world: the people in the photos actually move and talk! Why should your Richmond home business site be the electronic equivalent of an inert Muggle newspaper?

Savvy Richmond online retailers use the power of video to sell online.

Customer Testimonial Video
Record one of your satisfied Richmond home business customers enthusiastically extolling the virtues of your Richmond online business.

How-To Video
Find a YouTube clip of an expert explaining how to use your product or services. (Make sure you don’t drive potential customers to your competitor’s site.) This type of video works well for Richmond direct marketers. The parent company site usually has professional marketing videos ready to drop into your e-store.

Product Demonstration Video
This is similar to the previous two videos. This video should emphasize how your product or service is superior to your competitors. If you give product demos at Richmond trade shows, simply record one of them. Voila! A perfect video for your website!

Visual Stories
Easy-to-understand graphics and animation can explain complicated products and services. These are more difficult to produce yourself if you are not a professional. However, they can be extremely effective if your product or service is complex.

If you want more ideas for promoting your online store, contact me today.

Podcast Basics For Richmond MLM Business Bloggers

Today’s Richmond direct selling article is for Richmond internet rookies who want to kick up their web marketing a notch by adding a podcast to their Richmond home business blog.

A podcast is a multimedia file that is downloaded for playback on a mobile device such as an iPod or laptop computer. It can be a digital recording of a radio program or, more often, a program produced solely for online distribution. A podcast can be a recording of a webcast: a live Richmond program that is ‘streamed’ or broadcast on the internet in real time. When this is the case, it is similar to a DVD recording of a live program that you store in the database of your playback device.

A related term is the acronym RSS which probably originally stood for Rich Site Summary feed but is sometimes used for Really Simple Syndication. You have probably seen the term RSS on websites. An RSS feed allows digital files to be downloaded in a standard format. Vancouver podcast listeners often subscribe to favorite ongoing podcasts. When new podcasts are produced, they are automatically downloaded by RSS applications.

It is fairly simple hardware- and software-wise to product your own podcast for your Richmond online business
. Your laptop may already have recording capability. If not, you can buy any equipment you need in the Vancouver area.

Richmond business owners operating on a shoestring will be happy to know that basic recording and editing software can be downloaded for free. If you want to get fancy, you can always buy more sophisticated software at BC specialty computer stores. I recommend using a headset microphone so the mic is always in the right spot to get a clear and consistent recording.

Now the fun part: what will you podcast? The possibilities are endless for Richmond direct marketers. You can record BC trade show presentations, interviews with founding distributors of your Richmond direct sales company, or create an entertaining pitch about your Vancouver business opportunity. Let your expertise and enthusiasm shine.

Creating a podcast gives you a chance to connect with potential Richmond customers or downline members in a personal way.

I am entrpreneur and investor in human spirit Phil Hoskins, a network marketer representing Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage. I am based in Delta, BC.

Are you interested in owning a Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage online business? My team members are steadily expanding their networks and increasing their direct sales income.

Tweet Your Vancouver Online Business

   Posted by: Phil

Tweet Your Vancouver Online Business Greetings to my Vancouver direct selling blog followers! Today’s article is for Vancouver home business owners who want to use Twitter to promote their businesses.

If you have never used Twitter, here is a quick rundown from the Twitter folks themselves:

‘Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages. People write short updates, often called ‘Tweets’ of 140 characters or fewer. These messages are posted to your profile or your blog, sent to your followers, and are searchable on Twitter search.’ twitter.com

This begs the question, ‘What is a follower?’

Having someone ‘follow’ you means they receive your tweets, or Twitter updates about your Vancouver business. For example, the followers of my Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage business receive my tweets on their Twitter home page in real time.

Even if you are one of the many Vancouver social media newbies, I hope the wheels are turning in your entrepreneurial head. The business promotion possibilities are endless.

How about special limited time Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage discounts for your Twitter followers? How about reposting positive tweets on your home businesses Facebook page or online store? How about having your tweets automatically posted to your Vancouver home based business blog? (You can do this easily by installing a Twitter widget.)

As with other forms of social media, Twitter updates gain speed as more and more people repost them. You can enhance your businesses’ brand by reposting positive online reviews from any source.

As I continue to discover new ways to use Twitter to promote my Vancouver Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage business, I will share them with my network marketing team members. Check back often.

If you are looking for the best home based business opportunity in Vancouver, call me today.

The Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage market has ample growth potential in the Vancouver and absolutely explosive growth potential globally. (Remember, you can sell Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage online to anyone with an internet connection, whether they live in Caracas or Khartoum.)

Future Vancouver MLM blogs will describe additional ways to use social media to sell product and recruit downline members. If you have discovered something new that works, I would love to hear about it.

'How-To' Market Your Delta Home Based Business Some Delta online or MLM business owners don’t understand the power of How-To’s in generating content for their Delta online business blogs or e-stores.

If you are selling Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage (as I am) or selling a financial opportunity like the Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage home based business opportunity (as I am also) you have experience describing the benefits of your product and opportunity to potential customers.

If you have been running your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage online business for a while, perhaps you have personalized your demos to make them more compelling for your target market. If potential Vancouver customers relate to you and your experience, they will be more likely to purchase your product or join your BC network marketing team.

If you can explain how you perform a task with your product or service, or how your product solves a problem, you can document this process to create a How-To article or video.

It’s easy:

  1. Perform the steps in the process, and write them down.
  2. Edit them for clarity and add personal details about how this process has benefited you or your customers.
  3. End with a quick summary.

For example, a How-To article describing how to sign up to own your own Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage home based business opportunity would include:

  1. Call Phil Hoskins at 604.943.8598 or email phil@philhoskins.com.
  2. Pay the low start-up fee with check or credit card.
  3. Receive your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage start-up kit.
  4. Register for your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage online store.
  5. Personalize your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage e-store.
  6. Follow the marketing methods I provide.
  7. Process the Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage orders you receive.
  8. Receive checks for your sales.

Of course, many of these steps could be described in more detail, but you get the idea.

I challenge all my Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage MLM network members to create a How-To article or video this month. I am eager to see you express your creativity in your Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage marketing.

Thanks for visiting. Check back often for more information on the Delta Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage entrepreneur opportunity.

Connect With Your Langley Target Market

   Posted by: Phil

Connect With Your Langley Target Market If you are a Langley home based business owner with an online store, you have probably learned some of the basics of mass communication on the web. Today’s article focuses on how to refine your marketing efforts to connect with your core group of potential customers: your niche.

My niche, for example, are people who could benefit from Peanut Butter Cups and would be most likely to buy it from my Peanut Butter Cups home based business. Since this is a fairly broad group, I have broken down my target demographic into smaller sub-categories.

I have a category called ‘New Peanut Butter Cups customers who have never tried a similar product’ and a category called ‘Customers who have used inferior Peanut Butter Cups copycat products.’ I also have a category called ‘People who are interested in the Peanut Butter Cups business opportunity for supplemental income’ and another called ‘People who are interested in a Peanut Butter Cups business as a full time career.’

Anyway, you get the idea. Now let’s talk about connecting with your niche. Here are some suggestions from our helpful social media experts at businessbloggertips.com

Read
Subscribe to three other blogs in your target market industry and read them at least once a week. Remember, these businesses do not have to be Langley home based businesses or Vancouver network marketing businesses. They simply need to be business blogs sponsored by businesses in your industry. In other words, these guys are targeting your market also.

Quote
Quoting other blogs is a great way to establish yourself as a hub in your niche and demonstrate your connection to the industry.

Link
Link to other relevant sites. Don’t let your site become a dead end for visitors.

Comment
Make comments on other blogs in your niche. This establishes yourself as an active participant in your community and will help raise your site in the search engine rankings.

Any Langley internet business owner can follow these simple steps to engage with their niche. I have been doing them for a while and am amazed at the results.

Are you looking for a way to become a new Langley home based business owner? Call me today. I have the product, company, and business plan that will ensure your success.

Mobile Shopping Can Increase Delta Direct SalesYour Delta home business customers shop with their smartphone: is your business iPhone-friendly? Many Delta network marketers are still trying to bring their businesses into the digital age by opening e-stores that cater to internet shoppers who shop from their Vancouver home.

As usually happens, however, BC customers are way ahead of Vancouver entrepreneurs who operate network marketing businesses.

Vancouver internet shoppers are not only buying from their home, they are researching products and comparing prices on the fly with their iPhones, Androids and BlackBerry Curves.

This is good news for Delta network marketers because it allows us to compete even more effectively with traditional BC retail sellers.

Creative Delta direct sellers will use the same methods the big guns use to drive sales. If group bartering, limited-time text sales, and special Facebook deals work for national retailers, why can’t Vancouver network marketers use them to sell products and recruit team members?

Perhaps the next cool mobile selling strategy will come from the BC network marketing community.

I am entrpreneur and investor in human spirit Phil Hoskins. I am currently building my Peanut Butter Cups network with a variety of methods: old school and cutting edge. If you need a mentor for your Delta Peanut Butter Cups home based business, I would love to help you succeed.

Call me today at 604.943.8598 to get started. I will make sure you avoid the common mistakes new Delta direct sellers often make. Don’t waste your time with trial and error, use my proven methods for Vancouver home business success.

BC Million Dollar Chocolate Market As a Delta entrepreneur for Xocai, I use the power of direct marketing to reach BC chocolate buyers.

I believe Vancouver direct marketing is not an MLM secret, but the most straightforward and effective way to sell Xocai antioxidant chocolate to Richmond chocolate lovers and health conscious Surrey folks.

One of the key advantages of Langley Xocai direct marketing (sometimes called niche marketing) is that it allows for flexible targeting. This is an efficient and inexpensive method of selling healthy chocolate to smaller well-defined submarkets in the booming BC, national and global chocolate market.

For example, you may be surprised to learn that one of the most lucrative BC healthy chocolate submarkets for the Xocai Xe Energy Drink is Vancouver males in their twenties and thirties who drink energy drinks daily.

When I explain that Xe provides a constant surge of steady energy by promoting cellular metabolism, my prospects are curious. When they try Xe, Delta’s ultimate energy drink, they give up Red Bull, Rock Star and Monster for good. (Knowing what Xe does is one thing, experiencing what Xe does is something else altogether.)

Xocai Powerhouse cookie sales are brisk in the young mom demographic. Why? Delta mothers with young children want to give their kids healthy snacks. (Okay, some fathers care about healthy snacks, also.) They don’t want their kids to grow up on high-fat, chemically-infused Oreos and Chips Ahoy.

If you would like to learn about other money-making MLM secrets, let’s get together. My name is Phil Hoskins. I can be reached at 604.943.8598 and phil@philhoskins.com.

top home business in Surrey Remember when you bypassed your Surrey travel agent and booked your first airline reservation online? How about ordering your first book from Amazon? Did you enter your credit card number with trepidation? Did you wonder if your purchase would actually arrive at your Surrey home?

Now, most of us in Surrey shop online without worrying about security or shipping times. Well, we might worry, but not enough to actually drive to a Surrey store to make the purchase.

Since online shopping has become a way of life for thousands of people in BC and millions around the world, does that mean that e-commerce is no longer a burgeoning industry? Statistics reveal a resounding ‘No!’

There is plenty of room for growth in online channels and among all customer demographic groups. In fact, some experts call online marketing the New Industrial Revolution.

Surrey entrepreneurs planning to launch an online store should feel confident. Consider the following:

1) Untapped Industries
There is room for growth in all industries (even traditionally strong ones) including weight loss products, nutritional supplements, cosmetics, home decor, and clothing. Even the most commonly purchased online products have not even come close to saturation level.

2) Developing Markets
As more people in developing countries gain access to a computer, online retailers expand their potential customer base; especially the retailers who carry products not available to these new online shoppers in their local brick-and-mortar stores.

China, Brazil, Vietnam and Egypt are currently hot markets for online retailers. Check it out at www.marketingcharts.com

3) Over-70 Shoppers
The age group that didn’t grow up online is quickly becoming computer savvy and are e-shopping in greater numbers every year. Smart Surrey online sellers will cater to the Greatest Generation.

If you are ready to profit on the online marketplace, I invite you to join my Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage sales team. I can show you how to set up your online shop. Contact me at 604.943.8598 today to start building online residual income.

In spite of the cynicism and naysayers, the network marketing industry has boomed over the last two decades, and offers some attractive benefits for those thinking about starting their first small business. It involves little start-up cost, can be incorpororated as a part-time or fulltime career, and is open to all races, ages and backgrounds.

  • More than 13.6 million people in the U.S. participated in network marketing in 2004, and more than 54 million around the globe. The number of people involved in direct marketing has more than doubled in the past ten years; whereas retail numbers have been steady decline over the past decade.
  • As an industry, network marketing is experiencing rapid growth, with 2004 sales in the U.S. close to $30 billion and topping $99 billion worldwide.
  • More than 74 percent of Americans have purchased something through direct person-to-person selling.
  • The direct marketing industry is not affected by the same race, gender, and age biases often found in corporate America. Close to 80 percent of individuals are female, and more than 75 percent are over the age of 34. This diversity also includes a variety of educated backgrounds – from high school to postgraduate level training.
  • More than 85 percent of people in the industry work fewer than 30 hours per week.

America’s greatest fear is they will not have enough money for retirement. A network marketing home based business is a way to not give up the day job and build a nice secondary income.
