MUST READ! Turn your business into a tech firm

Image
Hey Entrepreneurs! 
 Do you know? The most successful businesses today (big or small) are those that see themselves as “technology” companies, irrespective of what business they are in! Confused? Imagine an entrepreneur who’s running a small supermarket at a busy business center. 
Her business seems simple enough: she buys fast-moving goods like bread and meat, and sells them to her community, and perhaps to people who travel through it, like tourists or visitors.  How can we turn her business into a “technology business”?

Hello Entrepreneurs,

Let me ask you something: How much time do you spend THINKING about making money online, starting your online business or growing your existing business through digital tools, techniques and strategies?

And how much time do you actually spend actually DOING something to make it a reality?

If you are like most new online marketing enthusiast that I have met, you'll spend a lot of time researching and reading up on it by going through our website, but the truth is, you probably haven't actually DONE much yet.

This is incredibly common.

In fact, I'd say 90% of all people who spend their time reading about making money online, affiliate marketing, online marketing, and search engine optimization never actually get started.

Does that surprise you?

One of the biggest problems that you're going to face as a digital marketer or an online business owner is this thing called "analysis paralysis".

It's such a common problem, it even has its own…

What is network marketing and how is it the business of the 21st century???


Whenever people here the phrase network marketing they get all skeptical and over protective because of one or two previous bad experience in which they lost or made no money.

Network Marketing is a form of marketing that involves referrals through the word of mouth or often called 'word of mouth advertisement'. For further understanding, imagine going to a store to get a nice pair of jeans, when you wear them and they look good on you, many people will compliment you and probably a few of your Friends might ask where you got them so they could acquire theirs too. When you do that you have indirectly advertised for that particular store unknowingly and you will never get even a thank you note not to talk of getting paid from that store but with a network marketing model, you get paid for every referral you make in the form of commission and in most cases, you also get paid for the referrals you team me…

Looking back 150 years ago, if a young man wanted to make a fortune, he had to go to the goldfields of California or Johannesburg. It was called the “gold rush.” About 100 years ago, it was all about being in the oil sector somewhere. And 25 years ago, it was about getting into telecoms (GSM).
Now there’s a new “gold rush” which started since the telecoms revolution gave birth to the rapid expansion of the Internet. Every single day, entrepreneurs across the world, including Africa, are launching tens of thousands of businesses on the Internet!

Take for example, the issue of smoking, there are many people who smokes and will want to quit smoking and it’s not that they can’t just stop themselves from smoking but the problem is they are so use to doing it that leaving it will look like they are giving up a very big part of their lives.
