It's nice to have the gift of nice days when they come.
I was a bit delayed working on the offer I have been working on for you.

Whose Loves You Baby

I don't know about you but I'm always looking to find my ideal customer. 
Seems there is always room to fine tune.
Take some time, as much time as you need and do so periodically to work on this.
 If your promoting on facebook and social media in general the competition is fierce to be seen and heard. But never give up...just keep going forward!
So here are a few things I believe will help you do just this as they do for me.  Sometimes I don't always seem to be hitting the needs of my ideal customers or finding them. Do I quit...Nope! When others don't respect me because I'm struggling, do I give up...Nope! I'm human and I don't always do it right nor do things consistently. But to go forward and fight for what I want is winning!

All of the following go hand in hand with each other. You could feasibly work on any of them in any given order because they are so related and interconnected.
1. From your customer's point of view, define your product or service. Put yourself in their shoes. If it's a mom, she might be looking for back to school items right now. Or if your customer has pets, they might be looking for wholesome foods or awesome toys for their pets.
Make it clear what your selling and the specifics about the product.
Sometimes when in a hurry we might post a product and not do a lot of details but go back and do those details if you've overlooked doing so.
If you already know those details your customer wants highlight them. 
If your a social media manager be very clear what your client wants. I used to do social media management and it's a fulltime job for certain. No to mention the constantly changing scene and needs of potential clients. 
Your client might need someone who is on top of navigating the social media changes and keep them in the loop and their social media up to par.
So what problem does your product or service solve for you customer?

2. Whose the ideal customer for what you sell?
Is it a mom, a homemaker, a business owner, a wife, persons who want to live and eat healthy, men or women who like clothes, like to eat, etc.
What's his or her age, where do they work or what business do they have? What is their financial situation? What is their situation in life and work like?
Take as much time as you need and do so often over time. The more detailed and the more you get to know those interested in what you off the better.
Of all the benefits of what you offer, what's most important to your ideal customer?
What are the most pressing needs of the customer? And why should they buy from you and not someone else?

3. What are the specific benefits of your products or services that your customer is looking for. What does the customer specifically want if they buy your product or service?

4. Where is the location of your ideal customer? Is it local to you or global?  Where does your ideal customer work?
Where does your ideal customer usually make their  purchases from you or others? At home or while at work? Maybe somewhere else!

5. Determine exactly when your ideal customer or client buys from you or will buy from you.
What has to happen for them in life or work to purchase from you? What time of year, season, month, day, or week does your customer buy from you?

6. What's your customer's buy strategy? How do they buy your product or service? How has your ideal customer made similar purchases in the past? What is their buying strategy? Sometimes a potential client looks for the best quality of an item or service. 
Other times they want dirt cheap. Either way they may shop around looking for certain criteria. What would those criteria be for your customer or client?
So how would they go about making a decision to purchase your product or service?

If you were to run an ad for your perfect customer, how would you describe them? What potential customers are most likely to purchase your product or service immediately? What is your potential customer's best qualities? 

The more time you spend exploring these tidbits the further you make the way clear to succeed in what your passion is in business. 

Let me ask you, how can you find your more perfect customer for your product or service?
How can you create new customers for your product or service?

Define your own unique selling strategy and communicate it in every customer contact!

Perhaps think how in 10-15 words how you'd share with a customer to break the ice.

Now go get to work and delve into defining each detail.

Keep Your Images Safe

Do you have concerns about protecting your images online? I don't always need to do so but want to on occasion.,. It's kind of difficult to do. When someone views a webpage the web browser is downloading a copy of all the content of the page to the computer. So even if you go to great lengths to prevent them from taking an image from the website, the reality is they already have that image on their computer in the temporary internet files. On top of that, anyone can take a screenshot when viewing a website and get the image that way.What you can do is make it more difficult for the average internet user to take the image. One way to make it quite tough for someone to swipe your images is to Shrink Wrap Images: This is the technique of putting a transparent image on top of the image you are protecting so they cannot drag it or right click save since it will save the invisible transparent "shrink wrap" that is on top. You can do it easily without code by adding a border over the image since borders have a transparent center and are essentially like a picture frame with glass.😁 You can also add a watermark on your images. There is software out there if people know how to use it that can remove watermarks but it's still a deterrent for the average user. There are free websites online to add watermarks such as or you could use just about any image editing software to add a watermark to images.
One other way is Resize before uploading: Images on your site If you are uploading high resolution images, it will slow down page loads. If you resize the images to a lower resolution, you can still have a good looking image that isn't as useful to the person that does manage to steal it. I hope this is helpful for you. P.S. this won't work on facebook obviously.

Saturday Funday

I hope your having some fun today and having at least as much fun as these two are.  
A few days ago I talked about we're halfway through the year. 
If you haven't started on the business and life you've dreamed of I hope you'll take a few minutes and have a read at the link below.
And by all means have some fun today and let the weight of the week fall off!

More Than Halfway

As of July 2 we are halfway 2019. 
How many of you made New Year's Resolutions and are still working on them?
Most of us can barely remember our New Year's Resolutions!
It's scary that it will be Christmas and New Years again before we know it. 
We still have 6 months to go. With focus and a bit of work we can make the rest of the year the most productive and rewarding. 

I challenge you to if you haven't already started your online business yet to get with it. 
In the next week,
1. Choose your niche/business
2. Choose your business model
3. Put your plan in place and get that website launched

Stop stumbling around and dreaming and put some action to it!
If your consistent working 30-40 minutes a day, you can have a website up and be generating income.

With 3.2 million people on the internet you have a wide open field to get your piece of the pie!
It's not going to happen if you don't jump in wholeheartedly today.
In a week you'll have forgotten about any of this and soon pushing your goals and plans back to next year.
You don't have to con yourself into thinking of procrastinating and wait till 2020 to pursue what you've dreamed of!

I can't imagine getting another year older, broker, more unhappy, and be depressed.
I can't imagine another year of struggling, hardships, and no freedom to do as I dream about doing.
How about you!!

What Are You Overcoming

Good Morning. How was your weekend?
I hope your Monday is exceptional.
I've been really working on stepping out of my comfort zone. I've been working on a new website and an e-book.
I'm determined to not be working a job outside of what I love doing. What's that require=work and diligent as well as keeping tunnel vision somewhat. What kinds of things are you overcoming and doing to go after whatever it is you want?

Focus on Just One

If you are hitting a brick wall, just slow down and focus on one brick at a time.

What are you up to today? With highs soaring to over a 100 degrees I think I'll appreciate staying in. Sundays are good days to stay in my pj's and chill anyhow 😄
