My 3 Favorite Ways To Make Money From Home


There are a lot of scams out there on the internet that promise to make you thousands a day. Well if you have fallen for some, and I sure have, then here is a list of ways to make money from home that I have used and know will generate income. I’m not promising you’ll become a millionaire, just that you can earn some extra money.

  1. Make money from home with eBay
    This was my introduction to make money from home. I started with making my own personal account and bought stuff first, which I recommend you do so you understand the buying process. I then sold digital items to people and made some great relationships with that. Next my dad and I worked at selling flash cards. Ebay now has PayPal that they own to help with buyer protection as well. Test this option out for selling miscellaneous items and getting a feel for internet auctions.
  2. Make money with Craigslist
    Craigslist is great for doing a yard sale without the yard. You can find stuff for sale or for free here and the quality of products is very good. The sales market is broken down by area so if you dont find what your looking for try another area. If selling then just know your selling to your city, though you can post in a larger one if your willing to ship or what have you. No fees to sign up nor any fees to list items.
  3. How to make money with blogging
    Many people enjoy talking with others and letting them know what they are doing. Making a blog lets you do just that. By adding information that others are looking for you can build traffic to your blog and get sales for products you have listed or just earn a commission from things like Google ad-sense.

The Basics Of Sales Training


If you try to search the phrase “sales training” in those popular search engines, you will surely get millions of results. Thousands of organizations, consultants and sales companies have made sales training the core of their business. In an effort to generate more revenue and increase sales productivity, people have tried to use various sales strategies to help win more customers. But how exactly do we find an effective sales training program in Virginia that can really help do the job for us? (click here to find more information about effective sales training.)

As a sales professional, one of the first things you should think about is what would energize you on a day to day basis. With client meetings, tight deadlines and the stresses of work around you, this can surely take its toll on your motivation if you are not able to manage it efficiently. You need to know what drives you every single morning and make sure that you are focused on your goal for the day. Do not let the little hassles in your life bring you down. You are out to make a difference to your team and your organization, so make sure that this becomes your mantra on a daily basis!

While confidence is not necessarily at the top of every sales training handbook, it goes without saying that being able to feel confident about your own skills and abilities is truly a plus. There will be times wherein you will run into some situations that may dampen your spirits. It could be an unanswered question from a potential client, a decrease in productivity or people issues in your team. Whatever the case may be, you should know that being able to speak to your customers is one of the best ways to establish trust and relationship.

While there are a lot of effective sales strategies out there, being able to focus on the basics will help keep you on the right track. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to be an effective salesman. It has to start from within, and the rest will follow suit.

How to Create a Double Sided Business Card


It is often said that first impressions matter a lot in the corporate world and as such it is important to have a double sided business card that not only details your contact information but also a small map on how to locate your business premise. Due to technological advancement in software development, it is now possible to come up with different designs, i.e. clear business cards.

Whereas, a majority of people often contract professional graphics designers to design and print cards on their behalf, unknown to them is that they can save on this expense by creating their own personalized cards from the comfort of their offices or living rooms. All that is needed is to have desktop publishing software such as Microsoft Publisher, Corel Draw or Adobe PageMaker. For the purpose of this article, we’ll look at how to use Microsoft Publisher to design and print business cards.

Load the software by going to start on the taskbar. In the popup menu point to all programs then click on Microsoft Office. In the resultant menu click Microsoft Publisher. From the task pane that appears on the left side of the screen, click on business card. This will display for you a number of templates from which you can select from. Double click on any design you want personalized. To change the background color, font scheme and styles, click format from the menu bar.

Change the contents in the card design to suit your own, i.e. business logo, business name and contact details. This will only form the contents for the front face. To create the contents for the back face, from the menu bar click insert and in the drop down menu click page. Format the page by adding background color and any other details you want to appear there.
