Marketing is crucial for the success of any business, but you’ll want to make sure you are producing something worth marketing. Whether you are offering a service or a product, you will want to make sure what you have to offer is of quality.

      Here is review and revealed are the five best must to do on how to make your business a success and worthwhile… Take your time implement them and the sky will be your limit for success

    3. Hi Casy, I just want to briefly share my opinion on your site content. Well, as a motivator, part of your task is to know how, when, and why you motivate people. You equally have the ability to de-motivate people against unrealistic expectations and faulty thought system.

      Because of how your message appeared in your beginning paragraphs, It seems to me that there were a few contradictions. This is by giving “the percentage of people who have already left your page.” I don’t found that encouraging to me(as a new visitor to your site)!

      Anyway, depending on the reason why that percentage of your visitors left, your aim should be to attract traffic and retain your customers by every means possible and not to lose them so easily. Notwithstanding the theory of consumer psychology. Your job is to provide rich content regularly based on your niche. The reason as you know is to get the conversions that lead to earning the commissions which are the ultimate goal of online business.

      However, I like how you clearly defined your audience” as the average person who is searching for a different path and needs some assistance fiding it. That shows that you have targeted audience that you are pursuing”. Then how to attract them and retain them is where your content creation becomes very important. Personally, I must confess, though still a beginner, it is a challenge for me. But I have to master it.
      And there are many people seeking for that kind of assistance because they don’t want to be drowned. Therefore, presenting yourself as a guide to help such people find a safe landing to a profitable, authentic business opportunity like a wealthy affiliate is an awesome job!

      I want also to comment on how masterfully you introduced the two links, in the middle, by saying I “want to motivate you to learn and earn and that this is your window in time opportunity” then hooked the reader up with appropriate wealthy affiliate links. This is great because often time people don’t read to the end of the article before losing interest.

      How Can we relate?

      Here too, I’m trying to understand what you are trying to communicate to your readers. In most cases judging from your examples, it is not all people that started well, that ended well. I think you must have heard the saying “the first has become the last,” or when people say it is not how well you started but how well you ended” right? I will rather have people believe that irrespective of their particular circumstances in life that nothing is impossible to a life that is motivated enough to take the required actions towards any dream the person has. Because dreams are like pregnancy, meaning that if you can conceive it you can deliver it.

      The starting point is to get the self-awareness of who you are and what your passions, strengths, and weaknesses are, and then work around them with the tools of motivation, inspiration, mentorship or coaching which comes in different ways too by people who have traveled the success road. One thing with life, and even with God is that life uses different ways and tools to transform us… It has never been one size fits all approach. I believe that successful people are made not born.

      Then, in contrast, you stated that you didn’t have such privileges growing up, neither saw yourself as talented as others in your sample group. Well, I think the mission point in that example is to tell your audience how they can become successful. But remember that it is not every Harvard student that turned up to be a success. Motivation wakes your mind up, it inspires you to use what you have to get what you want from life regardless of educational or racial background.

      Most successful didn’t go to the best schools or the best backgrounds growing up. In this case, personally, I will argue that successful people are people who don’t have time to loiter about. Once they become aware of what their purpose is for life is, and they identify their passions, they will sacrifice everything else to pursue after it until they achieve their goals.

      And that is what motivation does to help keep a person and the mind focused on a goal. Having an interest in something is one thing and retaining such interest is quite another. Everybody has an interest in something no doubt, but not many have the motivation to develop such interest to the level you are talking about.

      The Why, and The Goal

      Yes, I liked how motivating the headings were discussed. You provided the reader or site visitor with some thought-provoking questions to consider.
      That will motivate a reader who may be struggling with some self-destructive habits, including procrastination, and laziness, to consider his or her ways. And a little bit of the self-disclosure you provided, will equally motivate the reader to see that there is always hope to know that a person can overcome any kind of addiction, once there is a strong desire and determination for a change. Therefore, you are in summary telling your audience the encouragement to see that regardless of their limitations in life, that they have what it takes to be transformed and to achieve their life dreams.

      Thanks for sharing,  Wishing you good good success!
