Business Mindset Women: Tips and Tricks

I’ve always been business driven, we’ve all heard that “in order to be successful, you have to put in the work”. These tips business can assist women and men achieve their business goals. Although it’s focused to encourage women, men can certainly use these tips as well. Whether you’re a stay at home mom trying to make extra cash for your family, or maybe you work a 9am-5pm job and aren’t happy at your workplace. Everyone dreams of success!

I got my first job at the age of 16, working at a lemonade stand at my local Six Flag’s Magic Mountain theme park. Of course, at that age all I ever thought of was saving my money for a cute outfit, movie dates with my friends or even just to splurge on a refreshing drink, like my favorite; Cool Lime Refreshers from Starbucks! Now that I’m a young momma who helps my husband provide for my family, there are a few business tips that I’d like share.

Open a Shop, Etsy!
If you love creating hair bows, jewelry, cute invitations, crafty nic-nacs or hunt around for vintage items, you can list your homemade goods on Etsy. A great book to read and pick through is: “Etsy Empire!”, it shares pricing tips, shop building and much more. There’s a few great small businesses who simply make a living off selling their handmade items on a site that already has a great reputation.

Returning Customers, treat them with love!
If you love what you do, of course you’ll be kind to your regular customers. It’s great customer service ethics, but most importantly, those returning customers are the reason why your still open.

    It’s Cheaper to Keep Returning Customers Happy!

Social Media Presence.
You need to make noise, whether you’re on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or google+, your target market needs to be connected to your business. I found a great article on Entrepreneur.com, which informs the time periods to post on the most popular social sites to reach your audience in that platform. If you’re like me, I’m always on social media, I stay connected through my iPhone.

Enjoy Your Family.
Entrepreneurs tend to stay extremely focused on their projects, ideas and business plans that they forget to take a breather and enjoy their family time. Take a few hours of your day and take your kids on a hike, or go have lunch with your in-laws, drink a refreshing lemonade with a high school friend. Cherish your family and friendships, they’re the ones who listen when you speak business.

Set Goals, Long Term and Short Term 🙂
My husband and I always set family goals, financial goals, and business goals. We are business mindset people, we work well with goals. It gives us a reason to exceed and become the over achievers. You make your goal time period, it can be a few days, weeks, months and years. Write it, read it, most importantly…believe it!

How to earn money by Blogging

d28fb8da19ccb913cd55f46e827d086c

 

Wouldn’t everyone love to make money from home? There are great blogs that generate income and support their families simply…by blogging. It’s simple! Anyone with rich content and engaging articles and write ups can definitely make a few bucks, or a living off of their blog. Where do we begin? The basics…

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.

To break it down in an easier simple form of understanding

  • Blog, write rich and engaging content
    (be sure to have keywords for natural organic search traffic)
  • Use Social Media Network sites to engage with your viewers/readers
  • Have a Strategy, build a relationship and join an affiliate network
    (Cj.com, ShareASale, etc)
  • Market and inform your viewers/readers on the products you support
    (through your commission affiliate links)
  • Once your readers click your link, you can redirect them to your sponsors’ site and once they make a purchase, you make a sale, you’ll receive commission!
  • Make money with a click.

It’s definitely not as easy as it may seem. You can also place advertisement banners on your website which also can help you generate sales. You always want to cater to your audience, therefore you have a high click-through-rate and will achieve success. It definitely doesn’t take off over night, some blogs write for two-years until they begin to see a small commission check. If blogging is a hobby, hey! Why Not Try?!?!

App Review: PicLab

If you love creating cool pictures for your Instagram, Blogging and Pinterest account…this is the App for you! Most teenage girls and women, we love beauty and color. PicLab app allows you to add groovy text on top of your images, new textures, filters and so much more. It lets you share the finish product of your creation. Typically just like its other competitor apps, but this is yet…so far the best.

With technology advancing so quickly in the palm of our hands, literally…this app is a great way to help your blog and business boost without investing too much. What I love about it, is since we are attracted to beauty, you can literally get more readers to visit your site because of a beautiful featured image. With all of the new social media outlets that are available, PicLab did a great job at allowing so many sharing options. It’s easy to learn and very creative. The best part, it’s completely free and the it’s not disappointing. It’s highly rated, I would gladly pay the $0.99 or $1.99 upgrade to unlock all features. This could really help social media Entrepreneurs.

Kudos to this app. Love it!
