This article will open your eyes to an entirely new and revolutionary way to promote your network marketing business - completely online. The truth is that I did not achieve any success with either business model of Internet or network marketing. It was only when I combined both of them together that I found it to be extremely powerful and successful.

With the writing of this article, I hope it will be the same for you.

But what happens when most start a home based internet business? For the masses, the first thing to come to mind is 'easy money' and 'get rich quick schemes'. This is where most people go wrong. All get rich quick schemes and easy money are simply ways for other people to take your money. In the end, you lose. You will fail. There is no easy money. You must work for it. Network marketing online can be easy, but you must treat it as a real business if you want to make money with it. If you do so you will be successful.

Internet network marketing is a real business, in fact - it is the smart man's way to make money. These men persevere and succeed with everything they do in their businesses. They treat it like a real business and that makes money. The work might be easy once you get going, but that doesn't mean that you should ever think of Internet network marketing as anything but a business.

The Leverage of the work done by other partners has paved the way for you to have a wealthy home business with Internet network marketing. The Internet has an incredible scalability aspect. Anyone in the world can view and buy what you are selling. Your products are available all over the world. More and more people are coming online to purchase products and services for the convenience and ease of buying online. AFTER you have built a great team working for you, you will earn passive income. Yes, you will earn money while you are asleep! However, this is only after you have built a strong team for your business, because without a team you will be the only one working on your business. Most people don't even reach this stage, because they think they can do it all on their own. You have to work on it real hard in the first place, because it is a REAL BUSINESS. However, compare the initial work you will have to do with Internet network marketing to opening and running a brick and mortar store. There is no contest.

Why an Internet Network Marketing Business will make you Money:

~ You can run it from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection and a laptop.
~ The downside of the business is minimal and upside is amazingly benefiting.

Internet MLM business is a real, smart, true business of the 21st century. You can get to know people from all parts of the world. You can have a campaign where you sign up people while you are asleep. Tell that to traditional MLM business.

Do read my article on "The 6 Criteria For A Profitable Home-Based, Online Business".
It talks about how to choose a good Internet MLM company. I wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors.

Conference call services for businesses offer one more way of intra-business communication.

Many businesses, like call centers, are investing in state of the art telephone technology and placing their energy into creating elaborate skits designed at capitalizing on outstanding customer service and intra-business communication. But in reality, there's one thing that can make or break a call center-agents, and lots of the them. Without the right number of agents on shift, or even the right types of customer care specialist summoned to duty on particular projects, call centers can fall by the waist side and go floating overseas, where many phone banks have relocated over the past decade. Invest in call center scheduling software for you business. While some software developers are attaching hefty pricetags to such software, managing a more efficient phone bank with the help of call center scheduling software doesn't have to break the bank.

Portage Communications Incorporated is the self-proclaimed producer of "call center software for maximum productivity." It's a title that they hope to hang on to with their latest answer to the call center scheduling software craze, the AgentTime Scheduler. Dubbed as "the affordable agent scheduling solution," Portage's AgentTime Scheduler offers many attractive perks for call center supervisors of small to medium sized call centers. For starters, AgentTime conveniently creates agent schedules by making use of the listing of agents programmed into the database, agent's scheduling preferences, and shift definitions.

The AgentTime Scheduler works as one of the conference call services with the aide of Call Center Designer, and the SimACD Staffing Software. The Call Center Designer component of the call center scheduling software alerts call center managers to the mathematics of just how many agents they will need as well as the number of inbound lines that will be open during the weekday. While the SimACD Software, on the other hand, creates a computer simulated test of how smoothly operations will run with a given number of agents "manning" the estimated number of open inbound lines-this gives supervisors a better idea of what number agents will be needed during the shift in question. Schedules can then be easily modified, and customizing the schedules to accommodate fifteen minute breaks, lunch, and dinner is never a problem. The AgentTime Call Center Scheduling Software starts at just under five thousand dollars for a call center of twenty-five employees or less.

The EDP Software Company created SchedulePro Call Center Scheduling Software especially for all of those call center supervisors really frustrated with slaving over the schedules for their call center agents each week. The folks over at EDP want you to save yourself some time and you can keep your money in your pockets, SchedulePro is an automated call center scheduling software program that's excellence rate is demonstrated in the eighty percent drop in scheduling time that call center managers experience after making the switch to SchedulePro.

SchedulePro keeps a monitor on staffing levels, they want to make sure that you have all of the agent's butts parked in seats that you will need. SchedulePro will even help you find a fill-in when one of your scheduled agents calls out.

· The ability to define different shifts

There are three Monet scheduling systems to choose from.

Any seasoned Internet entrepreneur will tell you that without a target market, your online marketing business will have a difficulty getting off the ground. Marketing and selling your products or services without a well-defined market is like entering unknown territory - you never know what you'll get. You could, for example, sell cookware to a group of hardcore bikers or market high-end skin care to lower-income housewives and not be aware of it. With a target market, your products or services are more likely to sell and you'll also have access to the right reviews and feedback later on.

Advantages of defining a market

There are several benefits for knowing which among the segments that make up the market is truly your target area. Here's why:

- Your product or service will find the right audience. Think about it: would you sell a work-at-home business solution to a home-based mom or to a busy executive?

- A targeted market is much more likely to convert than a general-interest market.

- Your products or services are easier to promote.

- You're less likely to spend more for marketing and promotion because all your attentions are focused in only one area.

- Your products or services are easier to price.

- You get feedback from the segment of the market that matters to you. It's far easier to make related adjustments or improvements on the product or service when the reviews or comments come from the very group of people who actually use it.

Steps in defining a target market

Consider these four factors when defining your target market:

Your product or service

Begin with the type of product or service you have or want to offer. That should be the best basis in defining who your target market will be, regardless of whether the product or service is still an idea in your head or already a tangible product or business. What is it about? What is its purpose? How does it work? What makes it attractive? Can it compete side by side with other products or will it fit best in a niche market?

How much will it take to produce the product? Consider the production and delivery costs, along with the manpower required to process not just production but also distribution. Remember that pricing affects your target market.

Potential customers or clients

To define your target market, ask yourself, who will buy my product? Who will have potential need for it? Who will appreciate it? Who will buy it once and who will continue to buy it? What are the demographics of this group and how long can I do business with them? How much will they be willing to pay for the product or service?

Try to observe people's buying preferences and habits and how often they have bought or paid for similar products and services in the past. If you want a target market that buys from you more frequently, you might want to keep away from groups that tend to be fickle.

Your competition

Conduct some simple research regarding the industry you're involved in and find out who your competitors are. Find out which similar products and services have captured the largest segment of the market. Can your product or service realistically compete with these? If you conduct a search online about products and services related to your own and come up with over 1,500 online or offline businesses that sell the same stuff, consider if it's worth the gamble. Generally, the more saturated the market, the more you'll find big players and known brands. While this doesn't necessarily mean you should back off, it's just a sign that you should be careful about entering the same market. Competition can be very tough, particularly for products and services with high or specialized demand.

Your online marketing business' direction

Another factor that can help you define a target market for your online marketing business is your business goal. Where do you intend to take your business? Targeting twenty-somethings today, for example, may be great for your business but 10 to 20 years from now, will your online marketing still be able to keep this group's attention? Their preferences and priorities will have changed by then and so will their buying capacity. Do you still tap this market? If you don't, will you be missing out on a great opportunity or should you continue targeting the same yet fresh-faced market?

Conference interpreting is usually carried out by a technique called Consecutive Interpreting. In consecutive interpreting, the interpreter will stand beside the speaker. The speaker will stop periodically to allow the consecutive interpreter to translate the speech to the audience. This method will take more time because the speech is always paused to allow consecutive interpreting. Yet, this method is much more cost effective when most audiences understand a common language (e.g. English) while the speaker is the only foreign language speaker (e.g. Japanese).

Conference interpreting services can also be done in the form of simultaneous interpreting. The United Nations use this approach frequently because they find it time saving and helpful in making the voting process shorter. However, interpreting in this fashion will require the interpreter to be seated with a headphone in another room while doing the interpreting. Depending on the type of conference and circumstance, there can be one or up to ten interpreters providing the conference interpreting service in different languages at the same time.

The Interpreting System

Nowadays, most conference interpreting services make use of the advance telecommunication system. The Microphone Discussion System is one of them, and it is frequently used in conference interpretation. The source speech will first be delivered from the speaker's microphone to the central system. Then the central system will distribute the original speech to the audience that does not require any conference interpreting. At the meantime, the original speech is also relayed to the simultaneous interpreters in separate rooms with their headphones (this will depend on how many languages need to be interpreted). Each interpreter will then articulate the translated speech into the microphone while the speaker is delivering the speech. Therefore, everything is happening in real time. The interpreted speech will now be transmitted back to the central system, where it will be relayed to the earpiece of any audience who is listening to it. This approach to conference interpreting originated from the Nuremberg's war crime tribunal against the Nazis.

Conference Interpreting Process

When a translation company is appointed to provide the conference interpreting, the project manager will first select all the appropriately qualified interpreters from the linguists' database. Then the manager will discuss with the customer on the needs of all communication equipment. The company will also liaise with the equipment technician to ensure that the sound quality is good enough for the interpreter to hear the speech clearly. A meeting with all interpreters will also be called before the conference. In this meeting, they will be given all the conference papers so that they can carry out any pre-conference research to make their interpreting more efficient.


All in all, whether to use the consecutive or simultaneous interpreting method will depend on the needs of the customer. Nevertheless, it is fair to say that conference interpreting remains a crucial tool to bridge the language barriers and facilitates effective business communications.

One of the crucial factors in success of any business is the ability to market your business. This is especially true of a network marketing business where marketing is the core nature of the business. When it comes to marketing your business, you can take either of the two approaches or even choose to divide your efforts between the two methods.

Traditional Method: This is the method that has been used by millions of owners of network marketing businesses to promote their business. This includes following steps:

o Creating a database of your contacts: This means preparing a list of virtually all of your family, relatives, friends, co-workers, neighbors and other acquaintances. Since these are the people you know, you have a reason to believe that they will either buy from you or become your down-liners.
o Call your contacts and market your business: Once your list is ready, you start calling each one of them and invite them to participate in a conference about your network marketing business. After the conference, you follow-up by calling them again.
o Purchase leads or Cold-calling: Once you have exhausted your database, you may ask your up-liner for advice. Your up-liner is likely to recommend that you buy leads or start making cold-calls to unknown people to promote your network marketing business.
o House-meetings and Free Samples: By this time, if you have not achieved success your mentor may say that you use traditional methods like organizing regular house meetings or distributing free samples of your products.
o Outdoor marketing: You may be advised by other knowledgeable friends in the network marketing business to resort to outdoor marketing methods, which include distributing flyers and literature in public places, and distributing business cards.
o Network marketing training: If you are still looking for customers for your business, the company and the top-liners may suggest that you are in need of an mlm training session in a distant city being organized by your network company.

New-Age Method: Traditional method has achieved a lot of success in past decades. However, changes in society have made most of these methods obsolete and anyone resorting to only this method is likely to achieve moderate success in a network marketing business. New-age methods which increase the chances of your success exponentially are:

o Stop Chasing Everyone: The first rule of new-age method of promoting your business is to stop chasing everyone indiscriminately and especially, stop harassing your friends. You may not get business and you may lose your friends too. This is also one of the reasons why people get put-off by network marketing.
o Market Yourself: People like to be associated with a person who is a pleasant personality, who is a leader and who they perceive will help them be successful. People do not care much about the products and company. They are more interested in the person. So instead of promoting your network marketing company and its products aggressively, market yourself as a person who can help fulfill your customer's dreams.
o Use Technology to promote your business: The internet is one of the most-effective tools for your network marketing business. All successful network marketers fully understand the potential of internet and leverage it to their benefit by:
a) Creating a content rich website that helps solves various issues and subtly promotes the product.
b) Using Email and auto-responders as a main tool for communicating as well as following up with your potential customers.
c) Using articles, blogs, forums, advertising and search engine optimization techniques to reach out to their clients.
d) Using social networking websites to connect with customers as well as network marketers.
e) Using the internet to keep you updated on the latest in network marketing businesses to keep ahead of competition.

Conference calls are an integral part of any business. You can stay in India and exchange important information about your office with your counterparts in Dubai. No need of setting up a meeting, or flying to Dubai for the meeting. With conference calls, you can involve people located in different regions of the world. Although conference calls are frequent, many of us are not aware about the advantages of cheap conference calls.

With conference calls, you can manage to save a lot of time and money. Because of cheap calls, you can manage to buy minutes in bulk. The providers are known to offer discounts if you buy minutes in bulk. If you go for monthly minutes, then you will be given a package which has the option of discounted or cheaper per minute rate. If you are willing to buy cheap conference rates, you will need a telephone. With the system of cheap conference calls, you will have the option of arranging conferences for 2 to 200 people.

The package of cheap calls comes with some additional features like the option of call management over Internet, and free instant activation policy. Service providers have their own system of call bridges along with telephone infrastructure. That is the reason they can offer cheap conference calls for the subscribers without increasing the markup prices for covering the overhead costs. When you select a company for conference, you should look for organization which offers more information more than just a website.

Once you check the website, it will be easier for you to ask the organization if you have any queries about the working procedures or the mode of payment. You can ask questions about the staff and if they have a separate customer service available. Before selecting a company, you should always check references. After you have received the references, you can always call them up and ask if you have any questions. If they confirm that their experiences with the company are satisfactory, you can ask them about the specific details. Two things are of primary importance. You can always ask them if the company has an accurate billing system and the second is the quality of customer service. It is better not to fall for any free sites. There will be numerous free conference calling sites. In most cases, it will be seen that services are limited and the customers will have to pay for the long distance calls which should not be the case.

Choosing perfect conference facilities in London makes the difference between a good event and a great conference that delegates remember for years.

Location is important

London conference facilities range from those on the outer peripheries of Greater London to those in the heart of the Square Mile. For many conference organisers, the best locations are those that combine excellent communications by road and rail from being just outside the central area, with being close enough to London's heart for vital after-hours relaxation.

Locations such as Hammersmith or White City are perfect - outside the London congestion zone, on the right side of the city for Heathrow Airport and close to the M25, M40 and M4 motorways.

Selecting your venue involves much more than just finding 'conference rooms' in a convenient location though. Whether you're planning an event in the capital (or looking for conference facilities in the UK), here are some important things to consider.

Rooms and suites - the heart of conference facilities

Imagine what a headache it would be if delegates and speakers at your London conference turned-up at a room that was too small. Avoid this classic 'beginners' error by carefully selecting facilities for your purposes. A London conference facility can range from small rooms to a venue with many different-sized rooms and suites. The most versatile conference and meeting facilities offer 10 or more rooms - ranging in capacity from a few delegates to hundreds and offering a choice of the following:

  • Large halls for plenary sessions

  • Overspill rooms

  • Small rooms for more intimate breakout sessions

  • Specialist facilities (e.g. E-learning suites) - not all conference facilities have these

  • Comfortable break-out and catering areas

For major conferences, look for venues that can mix and match rooms to give exactly what you need - complete with audio-visual equipment, natural light and air-conditioning.

Parking facilities

Will delegates and speakers travel by car or public transport? Top venues make it easy to do the latter, but many delegates still come by car. London isn't always the friendliest place for drivers, but conferencing facilities outside the central congestion zone take some stress out of the journey. If a venue has on-site car parking facilities that's a bonus; you only need to look just outside central London, to areas such as Hammersmith, to find venues with plenty of parking.

Conference room facilities for disabled visitors

Look for facilities with convenient ground floor rooms, disabled toilet facilities and wide doors that make life easier for disabled conference participants. There should be dedicated parking for disabled badge holders too, as well as induction loop equipment in the conference rooms. Tell the venue's conference services manager about your special requirements - their response will speak volumes about how they cater for disabled and able-bodied visitors alike.

Other facilities

When delegates are visiting a conference facility in London for several days they need other facilities so they can manage their lives and get the most out of the conference:

  • On-site shopping and catering

  • Banking facilities

  • Accommodation or help with local hotel bookings

  • Access to central London and nearby shopping malls such as West London's Westfield Shopping Centre

The best venues offer all of these facilities as well as a wonderful selection of rooms, good parking, excellent transport connections and a helpful professional team.

How to shortlist the perfect London conference facilities

Firstly, create a shortlist of required facilities; the foregoing will give you a good starting point. Next, try an internet search, shortlist a few promising looking venues and arrange to visit them. You'll get a good idea about their facilities from their website - but nothing beats seeing their conference facilities for yourself and meeting the team who will run your event or conference.

Many of us would like to be working from home, but we don't know how to do it. Of course, many of us dream of packing up the 9-to-5 grind, moving things on home, and doing exactly as we please. Yet, many us are scared of doing just what we want to do most. Why is that? Because we're scared to leave that secure income, for one. However, if we can get past that fear, there's also the issue of having enough capital to get a business actually up and running.

When you run a home business as a sole proprietor, of course you need to take money in. However, if you want to start a home-based affiliate marketing business, this can be a completely different story. In fact, this can be pretty easy to do. Several things make it an attractive way to go when you want to start your own business.

One of these is that you can work from home. It's pretty comfortable to work from home, if you think about it. Everything is right there where you need it, you can be home for small children if you need to, and there are many other benefits besides.

There's no worry about commuting, no worry about dressing "professionally," no need, for the most part, to work around other commitments. When you work from home, you have many advantages over someone who works in 9-to-5 job.

If you're a home-based affiliate marketer, you can go even further. Most sole proprietorship setups for home-based businesses will need significant startup capital. Even a small business is usually going to need some money. However, to do this, you need to go to banks to get the capital you need. This can put you at even greater risk, because of course you have to pay that money back. However, as an affiliate, your risk when compared to a sole proprietor in an "ordinary" home-based business is only about 10%.

When you become an affiliate, you are either going to be selling goods or services as a representative of another company. You're paid according to how well you perform and you don't have to worry about sales targets or about making a certain number of sales every month. Instead, you just concentrate on selling the goods or services and on increasing your own earnings.

In addition, if you're a sole proprietor, you usually have to worry about competition. It's true that you may hit a niche market whereby you're not going to have a lot of competition, but otherwise you're going to have to attract customers away from businesses that are much more well-established than yours is. This can be quite difficult, because customers tend to trust businesses they've are he worked with. If you do attract new customers away from competitors, you may also create some bad feelings between you and those businesses.

However, if you work as a home-based affiliate, you're going to be selling products that have are established on the market and are proven. In fact, you can actually check and see how salable the products are before you sell them. If you choose well-known and trusted products, then it's likely that you're not going to have a problem attracting customers. This greatly reduces your stress.

When you run a home-based business as a sole proprietorship, it can take you years to get established. In fact, almost 70% of small businesses fail in the first year. Those businesses that make it past the first year still have some struggles to overcome. In fact, it usually takes about five to seven years to establish a significant profit in a sole proprietorship. In that case, business owners have to continually promote their businesses to stay afloat.

If you are a home-based affiliate marketing associate, this can be much easier to manage. Of course, you're going to have to work hard to promote yourself, but most of the startup is going to be done for you. You'll have your line of products or services and you'll have the ways you can advertise them. In addition, a representative from the company you work with can support you. Your mentor can be there to answer any questions you may have. Remember that your mentor once you do succeed, because if you do, he or she does, too.

When you run a business as a sole proprietor, of course there are some great rewards. The financial rewards, too, can be substantial as long as you succeed. However, your odds at getting there can be minimal.

There are too many definitions of what network marketing is these days.

Some folks'll say that network marketing >is all about sharing. Some will say that network marketing is a business model that rewards you with a multi-layered form of residual compensation. Still others say (incorrectly I might add) that its an unethical pyramid scheme!

Here's what I say: network marketing is a business that enables you to move products and services through a large network of other distributors and consumers and get paid on an ongoing basis for work you do once. The key components of leverage through others and ongoing revenue are probably two big reasons that Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki both recommend network marketing.

So here, IMHO are the essential elements to a network marketing business:

1. Marketing your business to Generate leads

2. Prospecting (sifting/sorting) the leads for business builders

3. Selling/Moving products and services to customers

4. Training people to train others do the same thing

These elements sound so simple right? But here's the real kicker in all of this: while each of these elements of a network marketing business may seem simple, only a handful of people really understand each element and how to put them together to run a successful business like the pros. And those pros are the folks you keep hearing about jumping pin levels and seeing on stage at your convention.

Generating leads for your business is really all about MARKETING. And marketing is all about crafting an influential and ideally ongoing communication strategy to TARGETED prospects in order to get them to take action. That action could be to download a free ebook, opt into a list, send for a dvd, fill out a survey, buy your product, or join your network marketing business or any combination. The bottom line though is if you don't really understand marketing, you will spend a great deal of time spinning your wheels in your network marketing business.

Prospecting your leads and sifting for the business leaders with them involves understanding what motivates people but also HOW to talk to people answering questions and dealing with objections. With network marketing, once you generate leads you WILL need to talk to them at some point and build a relationship.The nature of that relationship will determine whether they decide to join your business or buy into your service.

Believe it or not, they aren't joining your business, they are joining YOU based on how much they know like and trust you and how influential they see you as a leader and how much they believe you can help them succeed in network marketing. Therefore you need to learn how to talk to people and how to influence people so they see you as solution to their problems. This in my book in part of becoming a LEADER.

Selling products and services forms a core part of network marketing because obviously if no one buys your network marketing products or services you have no business. You need to have some knowledge and comfort level around your product/service what it does and how effective it is and why your target market needs to have it. You don't need to know everything but you need to know enough to be able to represent the product and enough to know where to leverage your time and point people to additional information when they need more detail.

Training others Once someone enters your business - hooray! You've gotten past a big hurdle. Most don't even get THAT far. Here's your next big challenge. You need to train your new distributor to do what you've just done. This is where systems can be extremely helpful. If you have a proven standardized training system then you can and should plug your new distributor right into this program.

There is a tough road ahead for many businesses with the current economic crisis. We have already seen many big businesses struggling to cope and many companies are looking for a way through the recession. There are two ways most businesses can cope with the loss of business due to a reduction in consumer and business spending. Many will choose to cut spending on marketing and other areas where costs can be reduced. This however may not be the best means on improving their financial situation. The other option for a business is to improve their services and advertising to encourage more enquiries and sales. In order to do this many businesses will require the help of outside consultants and agencies as they don't have their own facilities.

One of the best ways to beat the recession is to improve your company's marketing to encourage more enquiries and sales. There are many ways this can be done from increasing your internet marketing, magazine advertising and promotion to company branding, discounts and hosting conferences and seminars. Different types of marketing are suitable for different companies depending on your business model. Hiring the services of a marketing agency or consultant is a good idea as they will be able to analyse where your business should focus their efforts. An example of this would be using a marketing agency in Bournemouth if your business works locally in the Bournemouth or Dorset area. Using a marketing agency in Bournemouth would be an advantage as they will have a good knowledge of the local area and which markets to target. If you were looking to target a much bigger market then you would need to hire a marketing agency that has experience dealing with national advertising and branding campaigns.

Hosting a seminar or a conference is a good way to attract new business as well as a way to network with other businesses. However the amount of event management skills required when putting together such an event could be beyond most businesses. A conference management consultant will be able to help by choosing a suitable location and organising the running order for the event. Many conference management agencies also provide other services, if you were planning on speaking at the conference and lacked some public speaking skills then a conference management consultant might be able to help. Many provide presentation skills training which will help improve public speaking skills.

Do you really need your own Home Based Information Products Marketing Business?

Hey, if you are among the super rich like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, or if you are a celebrity like Charlie Sheen or Ashton Kutcher, you probably don't need your own home based business in order to survive.

Yes, even though poor Charlie was fired from Two and a Half Men, he was very well paid for a long time at about 2 million dollars per episode and probably has a few bucks tucked away for a rainy day. And how about Charlie Sheen's replacement, Ashton Kutcher? At a reported salary of 700,000 dollars per episode plus incentives, I don't think he needs a home based business in order to stay afloat.

So, if you are a celebrity or among the super rich, you probably don't need to start your own home based information marketing business.

But, how about the rest of us?

I believe we should all be starting and building our own home based information products marketing business. Even if we have a good job right now. Even if you start it just as a sideline to earn extra money.

In this terrible economy, and even before the economy tanked, millions of people found out that a good job can disappear in a minute like a puff of smoke. I found that out myself three times in my career.

Wouldn't you rather be prepared for that, by having your own home based business to fall back on if you need to?

Maybe the job you have now isn't so good, or you really don't like it and you would love to have the freedom to just say goodbye and go do your own thing.

Or, you might be retired, or soon-to-be-retired, and you are wondering how you are going to supplement your meager Social Security Checks.

A good home based information products marketing business can help you do all of that. That's why I believe you do need your own home based information marketing business.

Millions of people dream about starting their own home based business. Are you one of those millions? It's great if you are, but please don't be like many of the dreamers who either chase after every new "opportunity" and never really succeed, or dream and dream, but never start. Or, they do start some kind of home business and then give up too soon. Success doesn't come as fast as they expected so they lose hope, or don't know what to do next.

If you dream of having your own home business, you can finally start a legitimate home business that has the best chance of being successful.

Why wait any longer?

Imagine being able to focus on one good home based business, information products marketing, so you can stop wasting your time and money trying out every new "opportunity" that sounds good. Imagine starting your own info-products marketing home based business and becoming successful in it.

You may be asking "Can I Be Successful With My Own Home Based Information Products Marketing Business?"

I believe you can! But, you have to do it. I can't do it for you. All I can do is help you along the way with articles like this, and to ask you take a look at the many information products marketing related websites and blogs on the internet. Just do a Google search, for example, using the search term "information products marketing home based business". Review the information provided by the websites that result from your search and then get started.

Just listen to a few examples of people very much like you who started with little or nothing and earned a good part-time income, or even mega-bucks marketing information:

I'm a prime example as someone who moonlighted and made some nice part-time extra income with information marketing. I was working for a division of a medium-sized company as their Marketing Manager. I decided I had to do something on the side so I could eventually get out of the corporate rat race.

One of the things I enjoyed doing in my spare time was painting with oil paints or acrylic paint. Over the years, I had found several good ways to save money on art and craft supplies and decided to help other artists and craftspeople do the same. So I wrote and self-published a little 32 page booklet titled "How To Save Up To 60 Percent On Art And Craft Supplies". It cost me 50 cents to print and I sold it for 5 dollars. During a few years I sold almost 8,000 copies and earned 39,213 dollars in revenue. I'm no Charlie Sheen or Ashton Kutcher, so I really enjoyed the extra money.

A classic example of someone who earned a fortune in information marketing (a lot more than I made) is Joe Karbo. Joe was one of the people who inspired me to start my own information marketing side business.

Joe was facing bankruptcy when he lost his high paying job. He talked to several attorneys to see how he could avoid a bankruptcy. In the process he learned how to negotiate with his creditors and decided to write a book, "The Power of Money Management", which he sold using direct response ads in local newspapers and magazines in the Southern California area. The book was a success overnight and Joe avoided bankruptcy.

Ideally, what you should seek in an attorney is someone who is highly specialized in immigration law, has a solid grasp of the latest changes and revisions, and knows the law inside out in the area your company needs help.

Before you hire the services of a top notch immigration lawyer, do some research on the type of employee needed for your organization; then try to determine which type of Green Card or Visa may be required to accomplish your goals. Don't worry if you don't figure it out, that is what your attorney is for.

Specific areas in which you may need Green Card expertise are the H-1B Visa; the L-1 Visa; PERM or PERM Labor Certificate; B-1 Business Visa; E-1, 2, or 3 Visas; P and O Visas; O-1 Visa; or the R-1 Visa. If you're confused now it will get even more convoluted if you are planning to hire a foreign national through an H-1B Visa. Smart employers will look specifically for an immigration lawyer specializing in this area. This saves a lot of time and monumental hassle.

Just because a lawyer offers immigration services doesn't mean s/he necessarily meets the legal requirements for practicing that type of law in your state. For example, in North Carolina, California, Texas, and in the state of Florida, you'll find programs that specifically recognize immigration law as a certified legal specialty.

Most attorneys who practice in these states have a battery of exams and courses to tackle to become certified in immigration law. Make no mistake about it, these individuals know their stuff and are necessary in assisting you with your hiring requirements.

While hiring an immigration lawyer may seem too expensive, the alternative may wind up being running afoul of the U.S. immigration laws. Why take the chance when consulting with an attorney may save you time, money, and hundreds of hours of grief dealing with a myriad of red tape?

Everyone wants something for nothing. It's true. In a Network Marketing business, it is no different. Why is it, then, that we still think we have to pay out loads of money, particularly when it comes to business leads, to make money? Well, there are a lot of business opportunities out there that would like you to think you must pay to play. You can get plenty of things for free if you just take the time to look around.

We all want to believe that because we think our Network Marketing opportunity is great, so will everyone else that sees it. That belief alone will not help us generate Network Marketing business leads. That still doesn't mean we can't learn how to market our Network Marketing opportunity for free. That reminds me...your prospects have to be able to find you on the Internet in order to become your business leads!

So, before I get off on a tangent, I want to state that you CAN expect to get tons of business leads and traffic to find you on the Internet, without spending any money at all!

Start Getting Free Business Leads with Social Marketing.

Social Marketing is a form of Internet marketing that attempts to reach marketing goals by communication and participation in various Social Media markets such as MySpace,Facebook, YouTube; and bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Squidoo, and others, like Blogs.

What this means is that you can change the way you obtain business leads for your Network Marketing business opportunity, and remove some stress from your life. Be more social; take time to learn new Internet Network Marketing training concepts, and spend less money by learning free methods of attracting business leads to you, instead of paying for them, or hounding them. Think about what a unique tool this could be for your Network Marketing business!

How to start Attracting Free Business Leads:

By using Social Marketing methods, and socializing on social media sites to attract leads to you instead in hunting for them, you can enter the Social Media Sites and set up house with this new Internet Network Marketing style. This is a form of Attraction Marketing, which is the practice of attracting pre-qualified prospects, or business leads, to find what it is that you are offering on the Internet. So get started on setting up some new social marketing sites and make some friends! Try those listed above, or there are tons of other sites to choose from.

How Does Social Marketing Bring You Business Leads?

Just think of the extremely successful people you know in Network Marketing...what is different about them? In most cases, they are extremely likable and charismatic; some may say...lucky. People are drawn to them like a moth to a flame. Business leads just seem to appear. I think that's the leads come to them! They've established themselves as a "likable leader". I doubt they chase any prospects, or pay for them.

That's the way I want you to think...that success comes easily to you by just being yourself. You are already a leader. Your prospects just need to know "who" you are...without your "sales hat" on. You can do all this with Social Marketing; on sites like FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube, StumbleUpon, and others. Work on being a friend and sharing your knowledge, but in a giving way, and not selling.
