What Are You Avoiding?

Re: What Are You  Avoiding?


Every small business owner during the course of their day, week, month or year avoids doing something in or for their business.

* Some owners do not like confrontation and will avoid it at all costs
* Some avoid angry customers
* Some avoid paying bills on time
* Some avoid firing people

What are you avoiding? What tasks or situations are you not addressing in a timely manner? What causes you stress on a ongoing basis?

The answers to these questions are different for everyone.

However, there is a solution. Maybe not a solutuion for everything you’re avoiding, but a good part of it can be outsourced.

Step 1: Write down ALL the things you hate doing in your business. Everything! Make your list as long as it needs to be. It is what it is…

Step 2:  Then go through your list and check off ALL the things that you can assign or outsource to someone else.

If you hate doing customer service, you NEED to find someone else to do that job. If you are in the habbit of not paying your bills in a timely manner, hire a book keeper or a accounting service to do this for you.

The more things you can get off your plate that you dislike and or causes you stress, the better you can be as an owwner and leader of your business.

Motivating Your Affiliates

Re: Motivating Your Affiliates

Motivating your affiliates is critical to the success of your affiliate program. At first glance, being paid a good commission for a good product is reasonable.

It starts the affiliate relationship with your company. However, money alone  is not neccessarily the only motivating factor for an affiliate to promote your product.

Sometimes an affiliate likes a product but hates the customer service. Other times an affiliate wants more promo tools.

That’s why it is so important that “YOU” stay in touch with your affiliates. Find out what they need. Find out what they want. What excites them? What drives them? To find this kind of information out, you need to communicate with them.

As I stated earlier, money is not the only motivating facotr, it’s a strong one, but not the only one.

For intance we recently started an affiliate contest for Armand Morin’s Brave The Wave, Experience Event coming up June 26,27 in Orlando Flroida.

We decided to have an affiliate contest and the first prize is a Apple iPad! Turns out affiliates just “LOVE” affiliate contests!

Watch the video below. I bumped into Super Affiliate Connie Rageen Green at the airport in Minneapolis today. We were both returning from Armand Morin’s AM2  private event. 

Let Connie tell you in her own words the power of an affiliate contest…
