Why You Should Have A Blog If You Are In Business

If you have an online business then it is essential you also have a blog.

Just a few years back blogging was seen as geeky, not now.

bloggingBlogging can become a serious money making tool. In some ways it’s better than a shop front.

With a blog you can define your niche and build on it.

You can have your blog as your shop front.

You can promote sales, competitions and let customers know what is happening in your business. More importantly you can generate leads!

Leads = List= Freedom = Money

Many business people, especially those offline, do not see the benefits of blogging, and maybe it’s time to take a step back and look at how you can generate new customers using a blog.

More and more people are heading online, event if only to check if products are available at stores etc. so this is a great reason to set up a blog.

As you know by guest posting you are putting your blog posts to another audience which will serve to increase your audience and your list. We all want to increase our reach out there in the world wide web.

Look for other marketers in your niche and ask to do guest posts.

Marketing through blogging is another thing entirely and if you don’t have a marketing strategy you may need to be looking at writing to no one!

Blogging helps you to build rapport with customers, and also builds creditability for you also, particularly if you have lots of shares and comments.

You can blog about anything, take examples from around you, thing syou are passionate about, your kids, your experiences, from lessons learned that day or lessons from life itself.

If you market your blog correctly you can earn money from it.

You can earn money advertising space on your blog, if it is a niche area and if you have a high number of visitors each day or month.

You can market your affiliate products on your blog and get additional income.

If you already have a blog you may want to look through getting this reviewed. There are a number of sites that can review your blog and give you a report on how versatile it is for SEO, how you could improve your blog speed, or blog visitors. It is worthwhile the investment if your blog is your key method for generating your online business.
If you want to know how you can generate more income from your blog, why not learn from the man who has made millions of dollars from his own blog. Ray Higdon has taught me some great tips and marketing strategies on how to generate leads, interest into your business and income. You can look at the same programme I did with Ray here

3 Ways You Can Make Money Online

So you are looking at ways you can earn an extra income online, or working from home part time?

Network Marketing, Direct Selling or Multi Level Marketing is a great business concept to help you achieve that.

If you have never had an online business before, or indeed are not aufait with the internet world of marketing, then starting out in online business can be quite daunting.



According to the Direct Selling Association (DSA)

A record 20.5 million people were involved in direct selling in the United States
in 2016, a 1.5% increase from the previous year. These people are affiliated with
direct selling companies, and are eligible to purchase products at a discount,
and resell them at a profit. They are also eligible to sponsor others to do the
5.3 million are building independent businesses as direct sellers,
meaning they are actively managing a customer base and possibly sponsoring
others to do the same. 800,000 of these people are full-time and 4.5 million
are part time.
In addition,15.2 million others receive a discount on products and services that they
personally enjoy and use. Estimated direct retail sales of
$35.54 billion in 2016 is the second most in direct selling history.

Three Ways You Can Make Money Online

There are three ways you can make money on the internet

1.selling products,

2.selling services

3.selling information.

Selling Products:

There is alot of products out there, so you should look at a number of things when consider this area.

Such as

  • What products would YOU be comfortable using / talking about? Note I have not mentioned the SELLING….
  • Are they consumables? How often will customers be re-ordering from you? *(Side note – With Consumables, they may have a limited geographical selling range, as legally you need to obtain agreement from individual countries to allow your consumables to be sold in those countries, this is something that can take months if not years to gain agreement. Some countries have strict controls over chemicals, and consumable products that enter their markets.)
  • Are you expected to ‘store’ products in your living room, or garage?
  • DO they have limited sell by dates?
  • Can you or your family use the products in your normal day to day and will it help save on shopping bills?
  • Are the products ‘unique’

Selling Services

There are a lot of people now selling different types of services online, such as Coaching, personal training, virtual assistant services, financial services and more. This is a very niche market, and you may need qualifications and a required skill set

Selling Information?

If you don’t want a products based or service based business, then look at ‘information’ based business. Training content, business content, technical content, you get the drift.

With the information business it may take time to create the content, but if you do this once you can then sell the information over and over.

What to consider

So where do you ultimately start? First always do your due diligence.

Don’t try to find the ‘best online business’, or home business because there isn’t any one in particular that anyone can recommend. Instead, go with what you would be happy to use, sell, or provide. If the home business connects with you, then look into it further.

Try not to sign up straight away, leave it for a day to mull over the information you have just gone through intensely. Go over it again, and if you have any questions or queries get in touch with the site owner for more detail.

If your home business has a product line, are they consumables, information, or services? Does the DSA (Direct Selling Association), or any other governing body govern them. This is a sign that they have to abide by certain business ethics. Look at the companies policies, ethics and if they have a head office, check out the head office ratings.

Wolf Pack Leadership

The first 3 wolves are omega wolves (the older or sick so they set the pace of the group).

The following are the 5 strongest wolves of the group.

In the middle remaining members of the pack, and at the end of the pack the other 5 stronger.

Yet the last, alone, follows the alpha wolf. It controls everything from the back. That position allows alpha to lead the pack, decide the direction to follow and anticipate the attacks of opponents.

The pack follows the rhythm and the pace of the elders and the head of command that creates the environment of mutual

Help, Share, Give Back….

Good morning, as I sit here at my desk not aching too much after completing a 5.5 mile walk yesterday in aid of Dementia Care, here in the UK.  I also rode to the event which is a 4 mile round trip!

One of the things that has always appealed to me has been to be able to give back to society.  Now giving back to society does not always mean in a monetary way, you can give your time, raise money through a charity event, or raise awareness in however way you can. It can be rewarding to give back to the community who has supported you in some way shape or form.   Most people dont have the spare money or time to be able to give back to society, this is why I love network marketing because it gives you the additional income that is expendable.  I gave up my gym time for this walk, but did I miss the gym, no, instead of a workout  I did a walk, met so many peope who have had the challenge of living through and are still going through the journey of a relative with dementia, it truly was delightful to have completed this walk in my mother’s memory and for those all ar

It is more blessed to give than to receive – Acts 20.35

Dementia has a special place in my heart, because my mother suffered from ‘vascular dementia’ and sadly passed away in 2016. I know first hand what it is like to live with Dementia and how it affects those around you, including the one you love who has the illness.

Dementia affects everyone in the family, even close friends.  It is a horrible illness and there are many types of illnesses associated with Dementia which you can see below.











If you have been affected and are beginning to go through the journey of Dementia you can get more advice from this site:

And if you wish to donate to the Alzheimers Society and help fight Dementia you can do so here  https://www.justgiving.com/alzheimerssoc

Mindset, Changes and Challenges

I am definitely all about sharing experiences.  It’s a way of helping others who are in a similar position to you.  We don’t know what is going on in each others lives, but by talking, it opens gateways.

Today I want to share how a shy mother of two young boys, found herself in the most daunting position in her life.  What was that you may ask? We all have ups and downs in life.  Each of us think we are all going through a unique situation, and are the only ones experiencing it.


You are not the only one going through changes in circumstance in your life! There are tons of self help books on every imaginable circumstance you can google……

I went from happily married mother with a lovely family to becoming a single parent with two young boys.  By the government standards my kids were in a family unit that did not stand a chance to progress in life, and even more so they were boys!!

My marriage broke down due to infidelity, and with that came mistrust.  Nothing new here. But to me it was my world crashing around me.

So, being my proud independent self, I didn’t want to be seen as a failure, even though I really felt like one, with a failed marriage behind me.  I won’t tell you here about what it did for my self esteem, that is another blog post!  My logical head kicked in, and I had to find a way to replace the salary that just walked out of the door.

So I had to find something that I could do while still doing a full time job…. I wanted to be around my kids, they needed me more now than ever being a single parent.


So I researched companies and things I could do online to work from home in the evenings when the kids were in bed.  That was the start of my Network Marketing Journey!!!

That was over 12  years ago now.  Working in the Network Marketing Industry has helped me to develop myself personally, I have had so many great mentors and teachers along the way such as the late great Jim Rohn, John C Maxwell (met them both in person), Tony Robbins, Eric Worre, Diane Hochman, Ray Higdon, Jordan Schultz, Abdul Waheed and many more.   This is a world I would never have entered if it were not for my circumstances of a failed marriage back then.  So I guess I should thank my lucky stars that things happened they way they did.

Often we do not realise that we are being held back from our path of greatness, life gets in the way and distracts us as to the reason that we are here.  Circumstance or fate whatever you wish to call it, brings you towards your path of greatness sometimes through tragedy, sometimes through ways which do not seem favourable at the time.

Destiny-QuoteI truly believe this.  Karma, the Universe, Law of Attraction, God, The Higher Being, what ever you refer to, you will be guided towards your greatness, but you have to learn how to listen, learn how to be guided, it is called your intuition.  Some of us are more intuned to this than others.  I will go through how you can improve your intuition through meditation in another blog post.

So, in closing my experience of developing one’s self, through reading recommended books such as

Jim Rohn – The Twelve Pillars

George Classon – The Richest Man in Babylon

Lynn Grabhorn – Excuse me Your Life is Waiting

Oprah Winfrey – What I know For Sure

More suggestions will be coming through in further blog posts, but these are the ones that helped improve my confidence, and set me on the path to where I am now!
