People often ask me “Dan, how is it that you don’t have a job yet you have more money and time freedom than anyone I know?” and my direct answer is “I learned the skills of the top marketers online and I took action on what I learned”. Developing real home-based business skills in our current day and age requires use of the internet. Paying marketing companies to do marketing for your business is unnecessary and most likely less effective than what you could easily be doing yourself to generate leads and revenue for you business.
The only way to truly experience time and financial freedom as an “average joe” is via a profitable home-based business. The skill necessary to become completely independent financially are not as out of reach as they were years ago before the rapid growth and development of the internet. Some important skills to develop in order to create and maintain a profitable business online are:
- Attracting your leads instead of chasing them
- Capturing your leads into your own “autoresponder” database
- Building your own list of people to market to (not friends or family)
- Building trusting relationships with your leads
- Positioning yourself as a worthy business partner
- Establishing “posture” in your correspondences with your leads
- Converting your leads into sales
- Marketing affiliate products to your prospect email list
The skills mentioned above have made me more money in last three years than most people make in ten. I went from a hard working construction worker in the carpenters union working 40 hours a week for “the man” to never waking up to an alarm and working whenever I want. Joining a home based business is a great idea and the potential to make boat loads of money is there for the taking but without developing your marketing skills the outcome can and most likely will be mediocre at best. Developing and polishing your home based business skills can be done by seeking out the top income producers in the home based business industry and duplicating the marketing systems they use to build their businesses.
There are countless eBook products and marketing courses online that promise to show you how to make a million bucks overnight but the average consumer like yourself has no idea how to determine what is valuable information from what is bogus hogwash. After spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on top notch marketing courses, ebooks, video tutorials, books, and applying what I learned in multiple home based businesses I have created a dream lifestyle for myself at a young age.
