Snow Birds

Written by Bob Osgoodby

Many people who live in a colder climate go south duringrepparttar winter, and are often referred to as "Snow Birds". Others move there permanently after retirement, and some find it's not all "peaches and cream". Their retirement income may not enough to liverepparttar 117771 life style they wish, so they look about for other ways to generate additional earnings.

Many are attracted torepparttar 117772 Internet, and some do very well while others do not. Those that do not may get quickly disenchanted, and writerepparttar 117773 Internet off as just a lot of hype, where you can't earn anything. That's like getting a flat tire in your car, and swearing thatrepparttar 117774 automobile has no future.

Anyone going into business onrepparttar 117775 Internet, must do several things if they hope to achieve success. Probablyrepparttar 117776 first thing is to recognize and avoidrepparttar 117777 "get rich quick" schemes, that promise great earnings in a short period of time, with little if any effort on your part. People quickly find their email overflowing with all kinds of offers like this. Everything from illegal chain letters, torepparttar 117778 Nigerian money laundering scam that promises you 25 percent of 35 million dollars, start arriving and unfortunately a lot of people bite.

Believingrepparttar 117779 hype of some affiliate deals, they join a few and quickly find that they don't have to install a bigger mailbox to hold allrepparttar 117780 payments they thought they would get. Many of these programs require that you pay a monthly fee to be involved, andrepparttar 117781 founders arerepparttar 117782 only ones making money. If someone tells you that you don't have to work, forget about it. Like any other business, if you don't put forth any effort, your chances of success are slim to none.

Even if you do allrepparttar 117783 right things, like your car, you may get a flat tire alongrepparttar 117784 way. That is notrepparttar 117785 time to quit. You may experience several failures before findingrepparttar 117786 right one.

Before "jumping in with both feet" however, examine some ofrepparttar 117787 offers being made onrepparttar 117788 Internet. The very best way to do this is to subscribe to some online publications and reviewrepparttar 117789 ads. Paid ads that appear on a regular basis are a good sign of potentially good opportunities. Ifrepparttar 117790 advertisers were not making any money, they wouldn't be spending their hard earned money for them.

How to BEAT The ODDS!

Written by Bob Fioravante

Today, many people are craving financial freedom and independence. Despite what they've been taught all their lives in school (to conform; do what others tell you to do, prepare for a 40-60 hour-per-week job), these "netpreneurs" are appearing online, "ready" (somewhat) and willing to build their marketing "empires."

Many netpreneurs are choosing to start a network marketing business, since you can begin this type of business without a large capital outlay. Sadly, though, a good percentage of these individuals have very little training in marketing, computers, orrepparttar internet. And guess what? They’re losing their collective "shirt" in repparttar 117770 process!

Before "diving" head first into an online business, there are some important facts and trends to be aware of that can impact your success in network marketing. We will look at some of these rather formidable obstacles to your success, as well as several popular and effective strategies that flourishing networkers are now using to achieve long-term financial security.

In his book, Wave 4 - Network Marketing inrepparttar 117773 21st Century, Richard Poe tells it like this: "... A tough choice lies before you. Hundreds of companies vie for your attention, most of them start-ups. Among those start-ups,repparttar 117774 failure rate is high - over 96 % withinrepparttar 117775 first year ...." Less than 1% of all MLM distributors ever earn a profit!

In 1997, MLMSurvivor wrote,repparttar 117776 "Truth: for almost everyone who invests, MLM turns out to be a losing financial proposition. Less than 1 % of all MLM distributors ever earn a profit...!"

There has been a tremendous increase inrepparttar 117777 number of network marketing opportunities presented onrepparttar 117778 'net, with more companies going into "pre-launch" every day. With allrepparttar 117779 increased competition these companies create, MLM downlines are becoming smaller, and so are your chances for earning a profit!

Usually,repparttar 117780 1% of distributors who become successful are people with exceptional sales skills, advertising skills, andrepparttar 117781 ability to train and motivate others. Very few people are endowed with a combination of these special talents!

All too often, when people begin their online network marketing venture they are under capitalized. They underestimaterepparttar 117782 cost of advertising and promoting their new business properly, especially in today’s highly competitive online environment. Profits often come too late to coverrepparttar 117783 cost of monthly business expenses.

The sad fact remains that there is a frightfully small success rate in network marketing. The majority of distributors are left with nothing more then broken dreams and drained bank accounts. For many distributors, repparttar 117784 prospect of earning a profit online becomes highly doubtful, andrepparttar 117785 internet becomes a risky environment viewed upon with skepticism and negativity.

He/she explained that he creates wealth for his distributors by combining three critical components: residual income, leveraging of time, and duplicatability.

Wow, sounds impressive, doesn't it? But consideringrepparttar 117787 barriers to success explained above, you can see howrepparttar 117788 "synergy" of these 3 "critical elements" might fall far short for many people.

Residual income, leveraging of time, and duplication are repparttar 117789 three traditional components that can make network marketing a powerful business model. Indeed, they do sound effective, but they can be misleading, as evidenced byrepparttar 117790 extremely high failure rate of MLM distributors.
