Hire the Smartest - they will grow your business

Hi All

I would just like to share an old business quotation with you because it can have a very real influence on the way you run your business:

When you hire people who are smarter than you are, you prove that you are smarter than they are.

R H Grant

Never be afraid
to hire the smartest people you can. Sure they may not stay long for a long time, but while they are there they will help you to look at things, and do business in a new way. Learn to leverage on the skills of others. This is not hard to do. Not all smart people are good business people and many rather work for a wage than to set up their own business. This gives you are head start. Balance your employees need for security and you can literally pick their brains.

So think big, think smart and grow your business fertilised by the smarts of your employees.

Have Fun

Business is a livelihood but it can also be fun. Look for the fun in your work day.
It may be by joshing with workmates or by sharing a joke with a client. Life is too short to spend the 80 hours you spend at work miserable (and that was a joke).

Run Competitions for your Downlines

One way to keep you downlines active and engaged is to run competitions. I do this for my StartXchange team on a regular basis. We try to beat our previous stats and I throw in the prize credits. It's a win-win situation.

Join me at StartXchange to take part in my team competition where all my active surfers get a daily prize.

Answer your emails

Whenever one of your customers emails or calls you, answer them promptly. This is especially important for online businesses. Only a small number of your downlines in an area such as affiliate programs will contact you. From my experience these are the gems, cultivate them.

Help the Newbies

Do you remember your first tentative steps into online business? I do, it was scary and exciting at the same time. I was very lucky to have some excellent mentors at that time, who patiently answered my emails and queries and provided the way for me to succeed. They didn't try to sell up to me but they really helped and over the years I have spent thousands of dollars with them based upon the relationship they nurtured with me.

I had 2 people this week who asked me some questions and I replied, encouraged them remembering my first foray into this area.

So be kind to newbies, they may become your best clients over time. In fact the fact that they contact you or reply to your welcome emails is a very positive sign that they will end up in the 10% of your team who will contribute.

Hang in there.

Give a Helping hand

A good way of getting a good online presence is to lend a helping hand to your downline members. Downlines are all about nurturing long term relationships. Quality comes from quantity. Around 10% of my downline members perform and they are the ones I work with. That 10% drives 90% of my online business.

There is a temptation to onsell to new downline members but for the long run it is much better to get to know them first. When they trust you, you will get the on sales.

Keep well
