Understanding Settling and Accepting with Generational Differences

October 31, 2011
Identifying the differences in "settling" or "accepting" with noticeable generational differences. Differences that are within businesses can be understood better by learning about these subjects. Looking at the attributes of each one will help with a person learning their job and their life.

Several depictions are available as to describing what settling means. Many aspects of this way of thinking come from feeling that you are stuck in one particular place with no way out. While you may think you have earned more merit, your low self-esteem could be an obstacle. A person being a little too hypercritical or even being negative all the time are other feelings.

Acceptance is nothing at all like this and is the complete opposite. With acceptance comes an open feeling where new ideas and projects are always welcomed with a positive attitude. This perspective is one that will help with understanding profound generational differences. Confidence and an optimistic outlook on life are all part of the acceptance way of thinking, and this is what will work well with a business.

You may feel like you want to switch to acceptance after looking over it and settling. Accomplishing this task may be a lot harder than most people would expect it to be. You will need to boost both your self-esteem and confidence to start making the switch. When you enjoy the many things around you and also have the ability to accept new changes and ideas, this is the point of "taking".

Looking at the many different facets of your life will better help you in deciding where you are at between these two forms of thinking. You can often ask yourself what you have learned from both "settling" and "accepting" and make notes. Once you have looked at the details of both forms of thinking, you will find that "accepting" is the most positive outlook. It is totally normal to be a little unsure of making a final decision about this, and you can easily ask for help when you need it.

So many more aspects of life and business can be active through changing to an "accepting" way of thinking. Faster results can be achieved in the area of all employees through positive thinking and make sure all goals are reachable. Many %%noticeable generational differences can prevail over when you learn to go the route of an "accepting" lifestyle.

The SEO Potential Of APSense Branding Tags

October 29, 2011

Before I get into writing this article, I wish to thank Joseph of JFB Marketing for bringing the value of the branding tags to my notice in a recently published article.

What are branding tags?

Whenever a member submits an Article, a Rev-Page or a Talent at APSense they can include up to 5 "Branding Tags" that other members will be able to choose when they wish to indicate a "like" for that item.

These branding tags then show up in the profile of the user who submitted the Article, Rev-Page or Talent.

It is an interesting little exercise to see what branding tags other members have selected for your contributions to APSense. To do that, go to the Interests and Haves menu item of your APSense profile. Scroll down to see your Branding Tags, where these will be displayed with the number of like for each one. Here is one way to see how other people are providing feedback to you.

Branding Tags and SEO.

Your branding tags act as keywords for search engines to use for returning results to queries with that keywords.

An example of how this works goes something like this. Consider that you want to find an APSense member that is an expert on a topic or subject that you wish to know about. Use a search engine e.g. Google, and type in a query with that subject (keyword) and the word APSense.

Most likely you will find an APSense member's profile, article, etc. high up on the first page of the results.

So what does that mean for you?

When you write an Article, Rev-Page or submit a Talent think carefully about how you would like this item to contribute to your "brand."

When other members of your item at APSense that will then add some more credibility to you in that area, and it will be shown on your profile. That profile, which shows your Interests and Haves, can then be used by search engines to help others find you.

Think carefully about how the tags you submit can help with your branding!

This article was written by one of the senior writers at APSense Neville Dinning I hope your benefit from his talents that he has shared with all of us.

How to Build Credibility With Your Blog within your Niche Market

October 25, 2011

How to Build Credibility With Your Blog within your Niche Market

Here is some information which maybe useful to your business and it's medium to long term success.

Building your online credibility is an important part of your success in internet marketing. It is probably the most important part of ensuring your business is long and fruitful.

Using a blog to build your credibility is one of the best ways to earn respect and at the same time help others by providing them with good content so that they subscribe to your blog and look forward to your next edition or publication.

Content is the key to a good blog, and although it may seem difficult to write a blog with good content especially when you are new to blog writing, there are other ways in which you could provide good content for your blog. If you are unable to write good content which would be useful to your readers, then use other people's own. I am not encouraging plagiarism when you use other people’s content it is always important to say so and to give them credit for their work.

Would made you more reliable and respected both by the writer and by your readers. Let's face it, we don’t know everything about everything. Some people are experts on some things, and other people have a broad knowledge of some things.

If you fall into the latter category, then it is your duty to provide your readers with the most up to date and valuable information which would arm them with the tools they need to compete in their respective markets.

Your experience in writing a blog could be one of the three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. At the beginners level you would want to find valuable content and then share it with others. This content could be articles, videos, links and other information which you have come across during your daily activities.

The intermediate level is little more adventurous, than most. At this level, you find your content and add your flare to it before sharing it with others. You could try to change around the information which you found and also add it as a link to your information making it a part of your document.

At the advanced level, you are then writing your reports. You are an expert at what you do and passing on information to your subscribers about things which are in your field of knowledge.

Let us look at getting started with a video. The first thing you need to do is find your niche market or subject area. That is, what is your interest or business and how can you help your prospects. You then select your target market by deciding what your assets are.

You then need to find videos content which interests you, look for 3rd party credibility, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump  CNN, Yahoo, Google, MSN.

A note of caution is careful about using videos with other people's link with them as you may be sending traffic to other people's sites. Although they may thank you for it, will not earn anything from it.

You could also use this same principle with articles and other forms of advertising.

We have worked hard on many projects all for the better, as we have in the past, always looking for the right formula for success. The formula is the ability never to be satisfied with what you have, always something we can improve, implement or revise, so we all can benefit. Has been the “APSense Formula” regardless how good we look and operate we just have not arrived at our desired level of “Marketing.”

We talked about some new changes coming to “APSense”.  They will be presented shortly to all the members and new members to benefit. The “APSense Rewards” the revision that is being considerate will be tested and fully approved by the APSense Team Marketing Department, IP department, and all members who have contributed to these upcoming implementations.

The key is you will have some of the most creative “Marketing Tools” to share, promote and most of all make you a “Leader in YOUR Field”.  It's not a pipe dream; it will require work on your part also.

Let’s review our current “Rankings with Alexa”, review our stats, keywords, traffic audience, and performance tables will provide you with a very educated outline of our future.  I will leave you with this and Wincer will take over from here.

How effective is your Marketing skills, when writing headlines?

October 22, 2011

How useful is your Marketing skills, when writing headlines?

Marketing is a changing environment, what worked yesterday may not work today; if we keep this in mind, we will adopt and implement current market trends in our niche industry. Understand our market is the most important aspect of becoming a very creative and innovator marketer. We can write the most create articles, but if no one reads them, they are useless and nowhere to be found in cyberspace.

Marketing is not only a skill but an “Art”; we need to multiply our audience, gain their attention and entice them to read more of what we are offering. Once we have accomplished this step, we have an opportunity to make a first-class impression. So let’s be fair the most import line on your ad, would be the headline of your article. What we all read first, the headline also knew as the title of any article, book, etc. If it does not trigger our interest, more than as we click on the next item until we found one we like. Let’s review some ideas to writing real ingenious headlines for your ads, articles or eBooks.

-telegraph the promise of a positive benefit.
-emphasize the best; strongest benefits to your niche market.
-outline two and sometimes three benefits on your title that will entice your reader.
-if you can be attractive a creative a title that stimulates curiosity is an absolute bonus.
-stay away from fancy words; keep it simple and easy to understand.
-review and make sure you have used proper spelling and grammar.
-the last one l like using is to make your headline stand alone.

The Stand Alone Test:

What the independent tests means if how much of response have you gotten or will get. Here is an example of this trial, “Write for More Information’ would this draw attention from your audience if they like what they had read so far. This leaves your reader with a moment of curiosity, in most situations they will provide the information you have requested so they can have that information.

Writing creative headlines is an art and science in all of itself, and well worth spending some time learning and mastering. The best headlines written are the ones you find on tabloids, such as “The National Enquirer” (l would strongly recommend and suggest you studying these ads in the tabloids).

They have some of the best Headlines that gain your immediate curiosity and for unknown reasons you have done exactly what they want you to do. Buy their useless material! Here some examples of some innovative and productive headlines those tabloids like to use. “AMAZING DIET SECRETS OF HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS THAT CAUSES OVERWEIGHT LOSS.”
Now you just how to see how this will work for you, and again you buy their magazine again goal accomplished.

So with a little understand of how important a headline is you should review and change your headline or title until it has some of the key ideas l have listed for you.

October 18, 2011

You have strumbled into a unique site, no other site that you will encounter will provide our "Free Members" with the features, tools, and abilities to promote your "Business links" the way APSene will.

Why would "Wincer Song" our founder do this, he has one goal as his always had, l can say this because l been here since 2007.  His biggest investment is in our members, you will lead us to where APSense wants to go, and that should be a mutual goal, to become one of the best "Social Business Media Sites" in cyberspace.

The implementation we have come is going to shock indeed, perhaps surprise a few loyal members that we are a significant business media site. Yea, we all take the different direction, part of the gamble and experiment, trial and error. We would never of knowing this if we had not gone in the wrong direction.

Wincer is actually on his Honey Moon; please do not tell his wife he has been popping in and out on his business. How he is, very dedicated, hands on owner, with a brilliant mind for the future and the success for all our loyal members, we will all benefit, from our new direction...why l wrote this article.

Like you take some time and read this article, so this post will make even more sense in our direction here is the link.

"New Changes Coming to APSense"

What are Backlinks and What Role will it Provide Your Site with!!

October 17, 2011

Yesterday l wrote an article on, "How important are BackLinks", if you like to review it before you read this next article l am writing on this subject, please take the time and absorb what l wrote on this topic.  Backlinks play a significant role in search engine, they provide them with a vote that someone has actually spent some time and liked your site, so gives you a better score towards "Ranking."

Let's understand how the search engine finds you, you could be the most successful business owner at buying products that are of the highest quality and sell them at the most attractive price.  But yet your competition, which sells less of a quality product and sells it for twice the amount you're asking for yours.  Yours is far better and has a more attractive price than your competition.

His doing something that you are not doing, he has an active marketing campaign that is targeting the actual market of buyers for the same product that your selling, and making many sales. As you sit back, scratch your head, asking why me, why is he getting all the sales, mine is the buyer and cheaper. Very true statements but buyers have no idea you even existing in cyberspace.

Backlinks provided credibility to your site and allows the spiders that crawl all the search engine that your site has been noticed and indexed by the search engines.  Combine your backlinks with "Inbound Links" now you have gathered some attention from the spiders if your sites are compatible with one another.  What this means you want the site that inbound with you to have an interest in your site and products your pitching.

The worse thing you can do when yo are writing any material is have so many links to your article that people click and get lost, or found one of your links more attractive, and also, you get penalized for this by search engines a term called"Linked Farms" another type link spamming.

Taking small steps in understanding some of the techniques and strategies the will make you visible in cyberspace.  You need to try it at your pace learn some of the concepts l have shared with you and just make mistakes and learn from your mistakes.

Beats spending countless amounts of dollars for the same results you can do on your own. All it takes is your dedication to choosing the direction you want to go with all of this.

How Important are Keywords to Your Site!!

October 15, 2011

How Important are Keywords to Your Site!!

In the beginning "Key Words" where the most important factor on how your website got ranked, among the search engines. The better the keywords you used, the higher the score you got for your sites rankings. However, they’re just one of dozens elements that are taken into consideration.

So what are keywords, what role do they play, on our site, blog or articles we submitted to search engines. Keywords are the words the users types in the search boxes when they are looking for a product, advice or anything that they may be looking for. Simply put, keywords are the words that are used to catalog, index and find your website.

So when you're writing an article on your blog, or website, think about who you want to target, who your audience is going to be, what your niche market is. Keeping them important factors in mind, you will select specific words that will be searchable; within your audience. It's an important step, let's face it; you want readers who have an interest in your article, or whatever it is that you are marketing.

Spend some time, and do some research on your competition, and see how their sites rank, and why it ranks higher than yours. What words have they used, that allow search engines to find their place? Understanding your competition is vital to your success, after all, you're competing with them. Why waste your talents, and never have any unique visitors, visiting your site for lack of preparation.

Here is an important element to always remember, when writing your script, make sure you're using the keywords you will use to become searchable in cyberspace. Becomes a good habit if you always remember to use your keywords in your article, you will get noticed and clicked on.

There are two different types of keywords, branding keywords, and generic keywords. If you're not using the branding keywords, you will surely miss out. These are words that are your business name, description of what your company is all about and, of course, the product or topic your marketing.

Generic keywords are words; that are not branded with your business name, for an example if your website is you would use terms such as knives, fishing rods, guns, lures, tackle boxes, accessories, sleeping bags you get the picture.

These are necessary steps for you to get noticed and clicked on the web if no one chooses words that are relevant to your site then you're missing the boat and wasting your time and talents with your original articles.

I hope we all benefit from the information I have shared I will talk more about the elements that will have a real effect on how your site gets ranked and clicked on.

Here is a simple tool you can use to help you with the selection the words you should use on your website, blog or an article you write.

How Alexa Ratings Benefit Your Home Business

October 14, 2011

There are a lot of great tools for the home business owner, such as social media, marketing, Google Webmasters, Wonder Wheel, Analytics, and so many more. But the tool that I want to talk about today is Alexa and the benefits of having a high Alexa rating. Some of those benefits include bringing traffic to your site, bringing you targeted leads, gaining instant credibility and offering you even more earning opportunities.

Alexa Helps Your Credibility

Your Alexa rating shows that you are working every day at your business. It indicates that you don’t treat your business as a hobby; you treat it as your own business with the professionalism that it deserves. How it does this is because, even without your Alexa rating or even Google rating, you are driving traffic to your site just by adding new information consistently. If you are offering respected information that is of value to others they are staying on your site to read it and to look for more details. Alexa sees that and uses it to rate your site. It can tell if you have a poorly kept site that offers little to now value. SO the higher your Alexa rates in respect to your keywords, the better and more valuable Alexa sees your site. Knowing that, it is clear to see why a higher rating in Alexa automatically gives you instant credibility.

Alexa Helps Your Site’s Traffic

A higher Alexa rating helps bring in more traffic to your site because it shows to others that:

1. You are consistently adding new information.

2. You are offering valuable content that people tend actually to stay on your page and read.

3. You value the time that you put into your site.

There are some other reasons that Alexa can bring you more traffic, but these three are the key ones.

By the way, if you are not doing the three things, consistently adding new information, offering valuable content, or value the time that you put into your site, it will show in your ratings.

Alexa Helps You Get Targeted Leads

Chances are if you get a lead from your site, that person already knows quite a bit about your business style, your credibility and already has a sense of trust towards you. They also are already interesting in working with you because they feel that you have the qualities of a leader that they are looking for.

You really can’t get more laser-targeted than that! How your Alexa rating helps you get these leads or prospects is simply by getting that extra flow of traffic to your site of people who, before even visiting your page, have value to offer to them.

Alexa Helps bring you More Earning Opportunities

There are going to be a lot of people looking for your site because of your high rating on Alexa, but it is not only going to be prospects or people interested in your business. Other individuals who use Alexa for their activities are marketers looking for good websites to place their advertisements on. There is a good chance that you will have offers from people or companies, with a product or service that relates to your business, asking you to allow them to pay you to place an advertisement on your site. It also opens the door to other opportunities such as joint ventures.

No matter what your home business or even your product is having striving to achieve a higher rating on Alexa could mean a world of difference to your company. It really can be an excellent source to focus on to help you build your business consistently and successfully.

Some New Changes Coming to APSense soon!

October 13, 2011
A little about myself l been here since September 15, 2007, it was my son's birthday, made sense for me to join this site. I have seen many changes some good some l do not exactly agree with. But l do know and understand one thing about APSense you will never get the freedom you have here as a "Free Member.' Your abilities and talent are at your fingertips; you have it all here.

But like most "Social Media Business Sites". We have our fair share of problems as we all know "Spamming" is a primary concern, it's useless and laziness from the promoter of that link. We have found a way to control this type of "Marketing" here at APSense, more information on this to follow. APSense is about sharing the creative writing of articles that will enhance new babies and seasoned writers, educate each of us to become better at what we do.

I have met, read and learned from many of the members here at APSense on how to be better at what l desire and that is the market on the internet. Tonight l had a long talk with our founder Wincer Song about all that has been going on here since l been away but always kept an eye on what was being streamed out by our members. Read some articles, hardly ever comment on any or give it a like.

I told him what we talked about is how we are going to make this a much more professional business site and attract experts in some areas to provide our audience advise and educate you to lead your company to become more active and fruitful. It's going to take time, but we have a game plan that will provide rewards and most of all; bring us all success to our promotions.

For all the new members who have no idea who Wincer is, l will tell you this. He is the most determine, stubborn owner l have worked with. I can say that cause l know him pretty well. His goal is to grow and become the best "Social Media Business Site" on the internet. We will get there one idea at a time, we currently Ranking on Alexa's at 3,232 that's progress in the right direction.

I will share more information about what we are doing and the direction we will take....

Surround Yourself With Positive People They Will Build You Up

October 12, 2011

If you want to grow personally and professionally, you will need to surround yourself with positive people. Active people will keep you motivated when you are feeling down and give you that extra push and support when you need it. Positive people help your self-confidence because they tend to see the potential in you (even when you might not see it in yourself). Active people have a mental attitude that admits into their minds thoughts, words, and images that attract and draw to them growth, expansion, and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. Active people anticipate happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.

Candid, Constructive Criticism

You also need active people who will be candid with you about what you are doing and provide you with constructive criticism that will help you keep going forward. When you are around people who are positive, enthusiastic and supportive, you will feel encouraged and inspired. You will pick up their attitude; you will feel as if you have added strength to pursue your goals vigorously. If you had a choice, wouldn't you rather surround yourself with such mentally and psychologically nourishing people? Well, in fact, you do have a choice. It's up to you to determine who you spend your time with. To begin with, develop friendships and associations with people who are positive and supportive. Also, seek out individuals who are action-oriented and service-oriented. As you spend more and more time in the company of individuals who have these traits, you, too, will develop the same advantageous characteristics and put them to use in your life. Consider who you have been spending your time with. Examine your friendships and relationships at work and during your leisure hours. Those who occupy your time have a significant impact on your most priceless possession: YOUR MIND!

Negative People And How They'll Drain You

Negative people or those who are not well meaning, on the other hand, will hinder your self-confidence because they tend to reinforce your self-doubt and negative beliefs about yourself. These people will drag you down to their level. They hammer away at you with all of the things you can't do and all of the things that are impossible. They barrage you with gloomy statements about the problems in their lives. The lousy economy, the problems soon to be in your life, and the terrible prospects for the future - they might even throw in a few words about their aches and pains, recent illnesses, blah blah blah After listening to such toxic people, you will find yourself feeling listless, depressed and drained. These people are "energy vampires," they suck all the positive energy out of you. These "vampires" have the capacity to wear you down and kill your dreams. Negative people are draining. Try to stay away from them as much as possible.

Bottom Line:
Never underestimate the power of both negative and positive people. Negative people will bring you down whereas active people will build you up. As Mark Twain once said "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that. The great make you feel that you too can become great."

If it's Not a Money Making site, "NO" One reads it, Why? Part 2

October 9, 2011
When l wrote that article, l was not telling you to "STOP" doing whatever it is your doing to make money on the internet. What my main "Objective Here" is to make you "THINK" of how your affiliate program is going to become noticed and clicked on.

How we Market our programs are the most important step in having someone stop and check out your offers. It's called a competitive edge in the internet marketing; you're doing something different from the rest of the members that are promoting your very same affiliate program that you are. How many are pitching the same program on the internet? They got from the same place you do if it was a "Click Bank" offering or from another member.

I have seen them all, joined some and made exactly what you have achieved so far. The ("ROI") return on your investment, is not looking magnificent. You invested mostly your time and perhaps a little money, all for nothing, except "frustration" Now you see the point that your investment was a dud for a lack of a better word. So how do we change all of this, get noticed and get the click you need. If you have a lot of money for your advertising, then you can use "PPC".

Most of us have no idea what "PPC" even means or how the bid system works by your selection of keywords for your campaign. learning an efficient and active process for the seasoned marketer on the internet. I have used it religiously and liked my "ROI" what it is all about making money when that is the direction and mindset you to have.

But most of us have no intention of investing on "PPC", so the other route is "FREE ADVERTISING" l got your attention. A Very sensitive method for the simple reason; many do not know how to do it effectively. Sending your tweet to Twitter is effective if you provide the correct sizzle with your tweet. The sizzle is your "Pitch Line" getting attention from the audience that reads and decides to click on your link.

I want you to read and study these steps if you have a desire to earn an income on the internet. Marketing on the web is an "ART" very learnable, skills. Teachable to all who want to invest in their marketing abilities and seeing results,
With their progress.

Here are some examples of how you can better market your program differently than the rest. Take a little time review my Rev Pages here and learn how l did it and did it. Hope this give you some ideas of what l was trying to teach us all.

I have a group here at APSense called. How can you Earn Income on the Internet" if you have time have a look at all the members, read some their advice as well as what l have written, simple and some complicated steps for you to learn and start earning an income here on the web.

I will "ADD" another step to what l have shared so far, you can bookmark these articles, print them and most importantly you learn and perhaps for the first time on the right track for success as an "AFFILIATED MARKETER."

If it's Not a Money Making site, "NO" One reads it, Why?

October 8, 2011

If it's Not a Money Making site, "NO" One reads it, Why?

Been doing some research tonight on what sites get the most attention on the "Social Media Sites"!! I am not at all surprised by what l discovered at all, totally expected it and knew it for a long time. Most members, are to focus on clicking the sites that will actually lead them to the never, never land.

So if l promote useless links from let's say "Click Bank" they have made millions of dollars not knocking them at all, just how many other members are promoting that same product; the same way as all the other affiliated members are doing it. So let's be honest here when you decided to promote that product, your mind said wow, l am going to become rich with this. Forgetting one thing, if you find it, how many others are using it before you find it.

So the point here is if you are up against all the other affiliated members, what competitive edge are you using to make your link different and optimized differently with creative meta tags, keywords and keyword phrases. What makes you stand out. With all due respect, anyone can copy and paste and then click the hit button and send it to cyberspace. But did you get any confirmation in your "INBOX" saying Congratulation you have made a "sale"?

If you do not, believe me, go to your email account and see if you have any....I hope you do, really l do. Not that easy at all, when you have so many people pitching the same items you are. Everything you found on the internet, someone has beaten you to it. How do l know this been doing this since l learned CoBAL, RPG, DOS yes showing my age.

When you fully understand and learn how the search engines crawl your site and perhaps index your site and how it is being ranked by "Alexa's Ranking" then you have a competitive edge. Investing in your abilities, will provide you with an accurate 'ROI" return on your investment.

The internet is the fastest way to make real money and the most frustrating place when your not making money. You say how come l am not getting clicks, how come no one likes my articles, what did l do wrong. Yes, l could go on...but why right you all know the point and the,'WHY FACTOR"....

How to additional back links to your site everyday....So what are you waiting for? Join SocialMonkee now while it's still free!

The Mastermind Behind an Empire, Steve Jobs

October 6, 2011

With the sudden loss of the greatest brains in the world of technology and the mastermind behind the success of "Apple Computers". Built an empire from his parents garage, borrowed the "Apple Label" from the Beatles' record label, in exchange he would not market music on the internet.

Create the first personal computer Apple II, added color to his products, free marketing genies when it came to promoting Apple Computers. He developed Pixar, creator of "Toy Story" and sold it to Walt Disney when he was fired by his company Apple Computers.

He focus and ability to understand what his audience wanted and desire, he would develop the products that sold them self to the public. Iphones, Ipads just to name a couple of them, his vision was extraordinary to see the product even before it was developed.  Creates an entire market that he had all of his own, and took months, years for his competition to catch up even understand what he was doing.

He lost his life to cancer at the age of 56; the world will actually miss Steve Jobs Vision and creative abilities. I will leave you with his favorite quote that he would say each and every day.

"Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful that's what is important to me."

How do you define the word "LUCK"

October 6, 2011

This word is a word that is overused in many fields of life, we have all used it in one way or another. We all wish we had a little more luck in our daily lives. Some of the terms how this word is used.

He has so much luck in life.

Only if l had some luck l too could be like him.

Why can't l have in luck in my life?

We could go on and on and never really understand what it means or how it is defined. Luck to me is defined this way, and l will explain why.





Good Luck to all who read this and you apply the above to make yourself luckier in life; only you are in control of your life.


So when you bring this all own together and apply the meaning of each letter you get the correct definition of the word "LUCK".

So when you use the labor involved and obtain the correct knowledge; then you will see your LUCK increase all of a sudden. There is no such thing as luck you can control and create your luck at work, in business by having the correct knowledge to obtain the success that you deserve....................Except if your buying lottery tickets, then it's a whole new word to me also.............If someone founds the definition of that sort of LUCK, please share it with all of us.

I hope you can all apply a little luck to your day and your life just remember the definition of luck and use it to your advantage, and your luck will change cause you're in control of it.

The Story of The Boy Who Wanted to Buy a Puppy.

October 5, 2011

I came across this short story of the kid who wanted to buy a puppy, but he wanted a special puppy. I found this to be a fascinating and unbelievable lesson to be learned, from this young man. I just had to share it, with all of us here.

One day an eight-year-old boy went to the pet store with his dad to buy a puppy. The store manager showed them to a pen where five little furry balls huddled together.

After a while, the boy notices one of the litter all by itself in an adjacent pen. The boy asked. "Why is that puppy all alone?"

The manager explained, "That puppy was born with a severe leg and would be crippled for life, so we're going to have to put him to sleep,"

"You're going to kill this little puppy?" the boy said sadly while patting it. "You have to realize that this puppy would never be able to run and play with a boy like you."

After a short conversation with his boy, the dad told the manager that they wanted to buy the puppy with the bad leg. "For the same amount of money, you could have one of the 'healthy' ones, Why do you want this one?"

To answer the manager's question, the boy bent over and pulled up the pants on his right leg, exposed the brace underneath and said, "Mister, l want this one because l understand what he's going through."

How many of us would have reacted like this young man, strange that things have to happen to us before we can accept people for who and what they are we do have a lot to learn from one another.

Food For Thought, If you think you can.

October 4, 2011

If you think of yourself as being fat, you will be fat. If you think of yourself as being friendless and of no use to anyone, you can also fulfill those prophecies. The point is that negative imagines are self-destructive and self-fulfilling.

There is no reason for anyone to have a poor self-image on a long term basis, in spite of any excuse that might be offered. The excuse that l heard the most often is that people have been told from early childhood by their parents that they should not strive for individual levels, as they cannot expect ever to be that competent or capable.

It starts at an early age in life, a foundation that can have an everlasting effect on a child and the sad part is we didn't even know that we had something to do with how that child turns out to be. We are all so busy in life that we need to focus and make time to teach our children positive ways and show them encouragement and let them know that you take an interest in all that they do. Whether it's a test result, a picture they just painted or whatever it might be, show real affection to them, and you will see a big difference in your child.

So the next time you see you child sitting all by him or herself, and you walk up to them and ask what the matter is, and they say nothing. Well, we all have heard that statement, you need to stop all your are doing and found the root of why he or she is feeling that way. In most case it only takes a few minutes of your valuable time, but it will be the best few minutes that you invested all day.

How many Managers, understand this concept, the 4-3-2-1 rule?

October 2, 2011

It will provide you with an actual value of what you are getting for your advertised dollar. Simple but very useful tool, to understand and apply it each and every day....If you where a Manager was working for me and you could not provide me these number daily, we would have a problem?

Who has used this rule in Their Dealership?

Part One. This formula allows you and your Sales Manager to see your progress with how you are handling customers. I will tell you how many customers you had for the day, week and the month. Part two it will allow you and your Sales Manager to know what percentage of the customer are taking a demo drive. Part three it allows your Sales Manager to know how many offers you are getting from your walk in traffic as a percentage. Part four it indicates your closing ratio from all of your efforts....When you understand this concept, you will know where you will need additional training. We are all aware you will always have 100 percent customers so the top number will always be 100 percent.

Part Two is the demo drive....when you take the number of clients and divide them by how many demo drives you had it will provide you with a percentage. I good number is 75 percent of customers should be going on a demo drive.....if you're getting let's say 44 percent you will need to work on how to get more demo drives why are your clients not taking more demo rides with you.

Part Three. Is the offer how many customers are you getting an offer from after you have taken them on a demo drive. It's imperative percentage. It is where most sales people get week or do not have the proper training to get a customer to present an offer; no offers no sales... if your only getting 30 percent of the customers to make an offer, then you will need to focus on what you are not doing....Once you learn this, it will increase, and you will have more sales.

Part Four. Is the actual close, when you make a purchase, you have done all the steps in order, and correctly, now you have earned a commission for your efforts. A good closing ratio, depending on how many customer you spoke to is in around the 17 percent.

Let's review the 4-3-2-1 Rule

4 - is the number of how many clients you spoke to today, so it is always a 100%

3 - is the number of how many clients you took on a demo drive, so it is 75%

2 - is the number of how many clients presented you with an offer, so it is 50%

1 - is the number of clients you close using the above steps, so it is 25%

You made a sale, means you made a commission.. so if you want to make two sales, just double the numbers.

Now that you have an understanding of how this works, please feel free to ask any additional questions on this subject. The most competitive formula you should be sharing with your sales staff, as a Sales Manager. Learn this and you keep your job forever, and more than likely get recruited by other dealers who see your value.
