Attraction Marketing for Architects: The Basic Why’s and How’s

Questions before you start:1. What is your business? This is more in-depth than a simple “I am in the Architectural business” answer. You need to define what area and focus your business has now… and where you see yourself going within the next 5 years or so. The reason for this is you need to focus on specifics, not just generalities. Everyone marketing a design business is in the design business. What do you do, or want to market, that makes you stand out from the others? I specialize in Energy Efficiency. How about you?2. Do you have a website? This is critical to every business in today’s marketplace. If you don’t have a website, you might just as well be conducting your business out of the trunk of your car. If you are operating out of your car trunk, then a website makes you look like your business is much larger than it really is.3. Do you have a Portfolio or Catalogue of your products or services? You need to show off what you can do, based on what you have already done. This builds your credibility as well as becomes a source for samples of what the client can also have done. No matter how many years you have been in business, if you don’t have one put together, you look no different than someone else just starting out. Be proud of your designs.4. Can you make money from the clients that don’t buy your product or service? Strange as this may seem, this is a very important step in developing your credibility. Since your credibility takes time to develop, you need to find a way to pay for that process until you can use your credibility to sell yourself. This will be explained in greater detail in a future article.Now, to get started:Once your website is up and running, you will need to add a few things to it:1. Sign up for Affiliate Programs. These are free links from other businesses that allow you to sell their products or services through your website and they pay you a commission per sale. You just put the coded (in your name) links provided from them on your site. The client clicks on these links and is taken to the affiliate’s site where they buy something, the same way they would have if they went there direct, but since they arrived there from your site… you get paid a commission. How great is that? You don’t deal with the client, the money, delivery, complaints or returns… you just cash the check. Remember when choosing which affiliate sites to promote to pick products and services that compliment yours… and not the competition. Also, remember to buy from yourself. You may say that as an Architect, you don’t see how this applies to you. My answer is for you to be as creative here as you are in design. Look into one of those easy design software packages. No I’m not saying your clients should use them to design, just to put down on paper what their thoughts are. I find this to be an easier way to communicate the client’s desires to me. Not every visitor to your site becomes a client, so provide them with a means to access the products they will need for construction.2. Start and online photo Gallery. There are a number of free and pay sites that will host your portfolio. Start with the free ones and work your way up to the pay ones. The free ones are just that… free. They have a number of great features, but the pay sites have many more. By starting your own portfolio site you can link to it from many different sources including your own website as well as blogs… and even other sites that you don’t own, but give permission to link to your portfolio. The more links you have going to your site, any site, increases relevance in the eyes of the search engines and increases your SEO (search engine optimization). Plus, you only need to change pictures in one place, and it automatically changes them on all linking sites. I know a few designers that sell some basic plans that they can make changes to. Think of it this way, if someone buys a plan from you in digital format, but wants to make some changes, who do you think they will go to for these changes?Education is the Key:Education is the key to success in anything, especially in business… and by extension marketing. Too many prefessionals leave the marketing to referrals. Architects whould get most of their work from them, but they have to have a starting point. Funny, but what I am describing here is actually a form of building a referral base. Using Attraction Marketing as your focus means you will be using an entirely new set of tools and rules to market your business online. The importance of developing a systematic, cohesive strategy to place yourself in the front of everyone you want to as an “expert” in the field you’re business is in cannot be minimized. If you want to be known as the “go to person”, you need to prove you are worth going to… thus the “expert” tag needs to be believed by the client viewing what you are presenting to them. Make it count, and make it organized… cohesive. A sloppy, disjointed approach can do you more harm than good. Think of that presentation to your client. How organized and cohesive is that? Just apply that same end result here.Like I said initially, it all comes down to education, and the first steps to that end is to learn what it is all about and how to use it. There are a number of “social” sites that you will use for different reasons, but they all must link together to complement each other and thus feed off each other so they can all act to capture clients interest, develop that interest, and then lead that client to you as the expert that provides what the client is looking for. You need to learn the “why’s and how’s”, and the best sites for this provide the education for everything that I speak of in this article and much more. Plus, they provide the means to implement that education as well as a way to make money while you’re learning. Can’t beat that.One of the best places to use the Social sites is in the discussion groups. Answer questions about design, architecture in general, different aspects of design or presentation, and more.Here are some of those Social Media sites you will be using:1. Facebook and MySpace. Establish your design “business” presence, not your “personal” presence on these sites. These sites will allow you to place what amounts to your business resume’ on the internet for all to see… with pictures, links and all… for free.2. LinkedIn, PartnerUp and MeetUp. These are just a few of the many good business networking sites on the web… and they are free to join. You can put up your “profile” in detail and participate in group discussions on topics that are relevant to your business. This is crucial to developing your credibility on the internet… and all it takes is a few minutes of your time each day. Your name is visible, your answers are visible, and your “expertise” grows with each posting. The key here is you are NOT marketing yourself. Don’t advertise here, just answer the questions with valuable information, and sign your name… with a link to your blog, email and/or website. That signature is how they will contact you to get more information from the “expert”, and that is a very subtle way to advertise… without really doing so. That is very important.3. Blogging. Here you have a great opportunity to keep new information updates coming on a regular basis… or as needed. This is a great tool to use in conjunction with your discussion group participation. When you are ready to answer a question on a group post you can refer to one of your blog posts as a source for added info. Don’t have a post for that info yet? Write it, then answer the group questions and refer to the blog post you just wrote. Can’t be more current and effective than that, can you. Link to your blog from everywhere you can, and make sure that link is in any group postings and in your email signature.4. Group Discussion. This is an extension from the networking sites above. Start your own group and group discussion either on other group sites or start your own group on one or more of the group networking sites. Want to get a point across or a new product/service presented? Start a discussion that you know will lead naturally to you “needing” to present that new product or service in that discussion. Make it natural and it works much more effectively than just saying, “Here is what I’m selling, what do you want to know about it and how many do you want?”… not going to work. You make yourself an “expert” by presenting answers to questions, providing a service of knowledge if you will, and the sales will follow since buyers will buy from people they trust and are knowledgeable rather than someone that is just selling to them.Here are some more advanced Social Media sites you will be using:1. Writing Articles. This is a more advanced form of writing a blog and a great way to express your knowledge and spread that around the internet. There are many directories on the internet that post articles that are free from owners of website to download and add (as is, with NO CHANGES… including links) to their website as content. You get published and your words and knowledge, and linking power for SEO, gets spread all over the internet. Make sure you have links to your affiliate programs where allowed, on your websites and blogs embedded in the articles. Not everyone is a writer, or has the time to keep their websites updated and current, so they rely on this method of adding content to their sites. How cool for you. Write about different design options, using specific materials, styles, anything that makes you stand out in the field of Architecture.2. Write your own eBooks. This can be all new material or just a series of articles put together in book form and made available for free or at a cost to those wanting more info. It also increases your exposure and thus increases your expertise… and your income if you are selling it. Provide the first 2 chapters for free, then have a link on the last page of the last chapter that allows them to buy the rest of that book… and maybe other books or memberships ore whatever you can add to make a sale more appealing. If everything is downloaded by the client instead of printed and mailed by you, the cost is non-existent… and the profits are all yours. You can take this to the next level and turn this into a Private Label Program, which is a combination of the Article Directory concept applied to eBooks, but that is a discussion for another day. Suffice to say, this program has you allowing others to sell your eBook in their name, without changing anything, and they keep all the profits, but you get all the free advertising through the many times this is distributed. Publish using the eReader formats and all of this can be done for you for free. I wrote an eBook, published, on Energy Efficient Design a while back. It works wonders for your cred.3. Video Marketing. The only thing more powerful than the written word, is the video. People love to watch to get their information. Especially when you in provide it in the form of a Power Point presentation, a speaker presentation, a “white board” presentation, or any combination of them. Very, very powerful. Approach it just like you would a blog, but it’s a video instead of just words on paper or screen. In other words, a video blog. Did I mention this was very powerful?Take it to a level above and use Internet Television like I do. For 10 years, I used to be the featured speaker at a national seminar on energy efficient home design and construction. I’ve taken that presentation, and put it on Internet T.V. Education is a big reason for people to use the internet, and education in Architecture, whether you are providing a source for students of Architecture, or potential clients, this is a great way to get yourself into the “limelight”.4. Online Catalogue/Portfolio. This is who you are and what you can do. Put your designs, even your non-built designs, here. There are many different sites to post your portfolio, and many different forms it can take. The photos can be in a simple slide show format, or a very elaborate series of photos with detailed descriptions and even client comments. You can even take the viewer through the design process, from the conceptual stage (tissue paper) through the many changes (explaining the thought processes for making the changes), to the final design. Take your viewers through the budget process as well. I find this to be a great tool to keep my clients “in the ballpark”. You can organize them in one slide show, or in many different “folders” linked to each other… and linked to either in its individual sections or as a whole.Action Plan and Following through:Once you learn what all these sites are about, you need to put them into action… and if you follow the rules laid out in the education, the leads… and the clients, will come. The better you get at implementing the education in the form of a cohesive system, the bigger the quantity of leads you will see… and the quality will improve as well.1. Start with the Social Media Sites… the Facebook and MySpace sites to “register” yourself and your business on the internet. Make sure you set these profiles based on your business and not your family… do that with another profile.2. Start your blogs. Notice that is plural, as in more than one. Don’t try to cram everything into one blog. Why? It is better to separate them based on content, and then link them together as needed. I have separate blogs for design, presentation, and plan conversion.3. Add Groups to these sites. Join the groups that are part of these sites first, then join the specific group sites and network, network, network. Answer and ask questions. Start your own group and post your own topics taking the group in the direction you want to market. This allows you to control the direction of the group which in turn allows you to “soft sell” your product or service in a subtle way… but very effective. Don’t forget to link to your blogs at every opportunity.4. Put together your Portfolio. Link to your portfolio at every opportunity. Remember the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”, imagine what a slide show of pictures, with descriptions, is worth? Set up a PowerPoint presentation showing the construction in action from digging the hole to moving in. It’s actually easier than you think…. and, the Follow Through… What you do with these leads… 5. Email programs. Auto responders and aggressive email are parts of a critical ingredient to any marketing campaign. Why? You can’t possibly follow through on all the leads you get, especially when you come across the one lead that won’t stop asking questions… or talking about how much they know, but in no way intend to buy anything. Auto responders allow you to filter your leads before you make physical contact, or phone contact, with them.6. Cards and other mailers. This may sound like “old school”, and it is, but people still like to “touch and feel” sometimes before they buy. Cards, like thank-you and giveaways, and post card flyers and other “reach out” methods can keep the client feeling important, and get your message out. Make sure all of your printed material has links to your blog, website, portfolio’s and email addresses as well as the usual telephone number. Always give them a way to see more marketing of yours. How about giving your clients a calender using pictures of their house. Put your name and contact info on the calender, and you have a year round marketing piece.7. Paid marketing like SEO programs, professional attraction marketing programs, Pay Per Click programs and List Building programs can cost money and should be reserved for use when you think you are ready to move into, and are able to handle, the budget for these… but they work, and should be a very important part of your marketing programs.Updating your Material:You can’t just post and leave it. You have to keep everything up to date with new posts… especially on your blogs. If you want to keep people coming back, and the more times you can present yourself to them the odds of a sale go up, you have to give them a reason. Provide a membership option that has built in incentives to come back and join. Things like free items, eBooks, discounts on other sites and programs (you can negotiate this with other sites since this is advertising for them as well).If they keep coming back, they will eventually buy, but you have to attract them to your sites the first time… then keep them there. Present yourself as a very knowledgeable source… an expert, and they will… especially if the start of that information is free.

In our current society, people are constantly struggling to attend to their duties and responsibilities and find time for leisure, family and self. In order to handle the demands of life without going crazy, one should learn the ability of management. However, what is time management?Before going into the six essential elements that comprise the time management definition, it is important to know how this skill influences an individual’s overall quality of life. Time is one of the skills that an individual has to learn to be productive. A person’s productivity is measured on how much he can do and achieve at a given period. Personal productivity is one of the vital elements of life management. If one can master life management, one can live life to its fullest.Now that the relationship of time management, personal productivity and life management is made clear, it is time to move on to the six essential elements of the management definition.

Managing Goals: Goals are important in a person’s life. Without goals, one will wander aimlessly through life, haunted by the feeling of not accomplishing anything. Personal goals will steer an individual in the right direction and will help this person focus his strengths in achieving that goal. Thus, at the end of the day, this individual will have a feeling of self-accomplishment.
Managing Tasks: Every person tackles important tasks everyday. Managing these tasks is imperative to make sure that an individual do not end up with too many things to do. In addition, managing tasks will ensure that a person do not forget any important errands or miss any deadlines.
Prioritize: Learning to prioritize is also a good skill to complement managing tasks. Since time is very limited, it is vital that a person completes his priorities first before anything else. That way, a person gets closer to accomplishing his goals every single day. Prioritizing is simply knowing what is necessary to finish a goal and knowing what to do next.
Utilizing the Calendar: A calendar is important to manage one’s time fully. Whether it be a desk calendar or an electronic one, it is critical that a person have one. It is also recommended, if you have multiple calendars (Outlook, mobile phone, PDA, desk calendar), that all calendars be synchronized so as not to miss anything.
Procrastination Management: Everyone has a tendency to procrastinate and, for some, it is a feeling that is very difficult to resist. However, for one to be a successful time manager, one must learn to resist the calls of procrastination.
Reminder Systems: A good follow-up system is necessary so old tasks or projects are not forgotten. There are new things to do each day that might need much attention and a good reminder system will definitely help manage all of these tasks.Time management definition: Overall, time management is a skill to help an individual manage his time to accomplish his tasks, reach his goals, and still make time for himself.

Affiliate Marketing Trending in India 2020!

So, What Exactly Affiliate Marketing Is?Affiliate marketing involves referring other people to purchase the product of a specific company. Whenever any person purchases your referral, the company will give you a commission. Now, this seems to be a simple process or technique of earning money conveniently.Let’s just take an example. Suppose you promote a smartphone brand such as Samsung, you can easily provide a link to the product through your social media handles. When any of your followers click on that referral, and if any of them buys the smartphone, you will be paid a commission by Samsung for every sale.How Affiliate Marketing Works?Note that affiliate marketing is a part of digital marketing. When you do affiliate marketing, you play the role of a marketer.When it comes to affiliate marketing, you act as an online salesperson whosells the products of a certain company. Of course, you are not going to be an employee of that company. The person who owns the product is called a trader or merchant; on the other hand, the person who promotes it is called the affiliate marketer.You might be wondering how you can connect with the trader; then, you need to understand that affiliate networks help you achieve that.Also, whenever anyone purchases the product via your referral, it is a win-win situation for you(the marketer), the merchant and the affiliate network.The reason why affiliate marketing in India is trending nowadays is that many people or businesses have profited a lot from this whole ecosystem. It is worth mentioning here that even an ordinary person can become a millionaire with the help of affiliate marketing.Let’s discuss further in detail about four major players involved in this ecosystem of affiliate marketing. This is highly important if you want to be a successful affiliate marketer.1. Owner of the product-Merchant or Trader
As said earlier, the owner of the product is called a merchant. When we talk about e-commerce giants such as Amazon, Flipkart, etc, these also come in the category of merchants.Brands like Samsung,Apple,Intex,Dell,etc are also merchants.2. The Affiliate
Next comes the affiliate marketers who can also be called as the publisher. The affiliate is the one who receives a commission for every sale via his or her referral. It would help if you understood that you don’t require any significant investment to get a website created. That is why we said earlier that if you are looking for a passive income, nothing can be easier and cheaper than affiliate marketing.Through videos, blogs, and social media posts, you can easily promote the product.One of the most critical pieces of advice for you is that you should promote products that are in accordance with the kinds of blogs you post, the videos you post, etc. If you post educational content on your blogs, it would be inappropriate to promote fashion stuff.3. Affiliate Network
the publisher or the affiliate can connect with the merchant or trader with the help of an affiliate network.An affiliate network can be better understood as the link between the affiliate and the merchant.It’s crucial to understand that the affiliate network provides payment processing tools to the publisher.On the other hand, the affiliate network provides ad tracking tools to the merchants.If you are curious to know how affiliate networks will help you in earning money, then you need to understand that there is something called CPC.Besides, CPC(Cost Per Click), there are other ways like CPI(Cost Per Install) and CPS(Cost Per Sale).4. Customers or Consumers
The last player of the whole ecosystem is the customers. Whether the above three players will be profited only if the consumers buy products, anyone can be a customer. It is the responsibility of the affiliate to influence the customers to buy a particular product. As said earlier, for this content marketing can be used by the affiliate, even YouTube videos can be used to influence the customers. The tracking mechanism works as soon as the customer follows the affiliate link to make a purchase.Where To Begin?
If you want to start affiliate marketing, go through these simple steps.1. Signing up for an Affiliate Program
First and foremost, to become an affiliate marketer, signing up for an affiliate marketer program is required.Some of the options which work best for beginners are Amazon Associates, Flipkart Affiliate, BIGROCK Affiliate, etc.The reason such types of big affiliate programs are recommended is that they already have a wide customer base.2. Affiliate Link
An affiliate link customized specifically for your username related to the product you will promote for them.3. Influencing Potential Customers
Now comes your turn as an affiliate marketer to promote the product through various social media or online platforms. In order to publicize the product, blogs, along with the affiliate link will work best.Even Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram posts,etc can be beneficial.So, this was all about how you can easily set yourself up as an affiliate.How To Be A Successful Affiliate Marketer?
There are a lot of affiliate marketers out there, so it can be quite difficult to be successful as an affiliate. Don’t worry; we will help you to stand out in the crowd.1.Choosing the most profitable niche
You need to understand that the most profitable niches can vary from time to time. So, staying updated is going to help you throughout the journey of affiliate marketing.Besides this, it is very significant to choose a particular niche, so that you can target a particular audience for greater conversion.With your blog posts, you will not only be delivering useful content to your audience but also you can promote them to buy certain products with the help of a referral.Some of the most profitable niches which have a lot of scopes are the beauty industry, health and wellness industry, travel, adventure sports, etc.2.Choosing the right niche for your blog posts
Some of you might be wondering what exactly a niche is? So, let’s say if you have a lot of knowledge about beauty related products or basically if beauty is your industry, then beauty products can be your niche. You should make sure that your interest and expertise in that niche is enough to ensure your audience trusts your recommendations.3.Selecting the product, you will promote
This is the most crucial step; for instance, you have chosen electronics and your niche. Let’s take an example of laptops; then, you can find various brands in the markets.Firstly, you can select a product based on its popularity and brand name, in this case, you will go for big brands.The second technique involves choosing the product to promote based on your individual opinions.If you choose to promote products of big brands, then we all know that these brands already have a good reputation. So, all you need to do is focus on creating quality content that can persuade the customers to buy the product.On the other hand, if you have decided to promote products based on your personal preferences, you need to develop content with extra effort. When you are promoting products about which a customer may or may not have much liking as the brand may or may not be big, you need to develop content that strongly encourages customers to click on the link. Of-course, the level of persuading skills you require is much greater than that required for the first case.Also, remember in digital marketing, relevant stuff will always be valued.These were the three steps that can take your affiliate marketing strategies to the next level.

Short, Intermediate, And Longer – Term Impacts On Home Sales, When Rates Rise!

For many reasons, some, economic, while others, related to the pandemic – related, so – called, fatigue, etc, home prices, in most areas, have gone up, at, or, near, record amounts! Because of the prolonged period of artificially – created, low – interest rates, mortgage rates, have been at historic lows! Since, for most home buyers, using financing is essential to affording a purchase, when a low rate, causes cheap money, and, thus, the ability to afford more home – for – the – buck, prices usually rise! It permits qualified buyers to qualify for more money/ loan, because the ratio of monthly mortgage, to overall income, is artificially – reduced! How long will this trend continue, will it become the new – normal, will previous trends/ cycles return, and how will pricing be affected, in the immediate, intermediate, and longer – run, are, all factors, to consider! With, that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, some possibilities, to consider, and understand.

1. Short – term: Since, the Federal Reserve Bank, announced, they planned to raise rates, three times in 2022 (of course, this was before the potential implications, and ramifications, from the Omicron variant), many feel pressure, to act quickly, to take advantage of today’s low rates, before they go up! Three increases will probably translate to, at least, a 0.75% higher rate, which will translate, for most mortgages, to hundreds of extra dollars, per month. Some things to consider, and pay attention to, is, this rate of increased home prices, will, probably, not continue, especially, at such a large degree! How longer one, expects to keep a specific house, is, one issue, to consider, thoroughly, and wisely, before proceeding!

2. Intermediate – term: Although, many believe, to – know, the precise timing of any projected rate – hike, is uncertain! The Fed has changed, and/ or, altered its strategies and approaches, in the past, What the intermediate – term, may bring, including potential inflationary pressures, how long the economic conditions, and unknown factors, related to the pandemic, etc, will determine, largely, what this phase, may bring! In addition, the attitude, and perceptions of buyers, and their confidence, etc, largely impact this real estate market!

3. Longer – term: In the longer – run, will things, restore, to what we have seen, so often, in the past, which is, alternating cycles, between, Sellers, Buyers, and Neutral Markets? The possibilities, include: a continued large escalation; a more – gradual, but persistent – one; some leveling; and/ or, will we see, at least, in certain areas, some sort of falling prices, for a period.

Affiliate Marketing Coach – Speed Up Your Affiliate Progress With A Coach

An affiliate marketing coach is someone who can help you lift the invisible ceiling which may be holding your affiliate business back. So much in business it is the limits of our thinking which stop us from achieving the things we set out to achieve.

In affiliate marketing this is very much the case. You don’t know what you don’t know! You may even be running down a rabbit hole in the complete wrong direction. I did this for years before finding an affiliate marketing coach who helped me.

Before this point I was trying to do everything alone. Many affiliates are doing the same but don’t realise their actions aren’t aligned with their desired outcomes. For me, I was focusing only on the things I liked to do, not the things which would drive my business forwards.

A clear perspective from a coach who isn’t so myopic in their thinking can change everything. If you keep doing what you’ve always done as an affiliate, your results will likely be the same. But if you’re prepared to step outside your comfort zone, you can make far greater changes in a small amount of time.

Much of affiliate marketing is about trial and error. You try several things and focus on the things which work. This is Pareto’s principle, or the 80:20 rule. But if you have no results to draw from, you could easily be focusing on strategies which will take years to gain any traction.

A few of the small shifts I made in my affiliate marketing endeavours are: shifting to promoting products which offer recurring commissions, I stopped promoting small value, low commission products, and I started using high ticket digital products instead.

These steps alone hugely helped me start generating tactics in my affiliate business. But I also got coaching and mentoring, and decided to take affiliate marketing more seriously. In the beginning, it was just a hobby, and I treated it like a hobby. But if you look at your affiliate business like a hobby, you’ll earn a hobby wage from it. Treat it more seriously, and focus on building a sustainable income which can replace existing work, and you can achieve much more. You get what you focus on!

Goals are useful signposts for affiliates too. For such a long time I was without a rudder as an affiliate. A goal gives you a specific destination you can measure and work towards. If you don’t have either a goal, or a strategy you can stick to with affiliate marketing, it’s easy to lose purpose and drift off in another direction.

When you’re looking for results and don’t have any, it can become completely demoralising! You need to stoke the fire of your own enthusiasm continually or you’re likely to become disillusioned and drop out. This happens to around 95% of affiliate marketers.

But you need to be in the 5% who stick at it and eventually break through and start making consistent sales. When this occurs will depend on the actions you take and how long you keep going for. If something isn’t working, try something else. Focus on the small wins like a hit on a website, or an email lead. Keep your enthusiasm high and you’ll be able to surmount the obstacles which come with the territory. But if you allow yourself to become dissatisfied, it’s much more difficult to keep going.

Affiliate marketing isn’t easy. It’s performance related which means that if you don’t make a sale, you don’t make any money. This is tough in the beginning because you can do a lot of activity which is unrewarded. But once you make a sale, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel. This is the goal of many new affiliate marketers – to make their first sale.

Once you have some positive feedback in terms of success, you can focus on the activities which brought it about. But until this happens, you very much need to trust the process. If you’re also paying a membership fee while this is happening, there can come a point where you decide it’s simply not working! This is common, and people drop out. But if you have a coach you can trust, things are so much more sustainable.

An affiliate marketing coach can help you overcome negativity, indecision, hesitancy and self belief issues. A coach can help you see things in a different light and to notice limitations in your thinking.

For me this has been a complete game changer, and not just for affiliate marketing. When you notice your own self talk is talking away your success and happiness, you realise you are the creator of your own outcomes. As you remember to change your self talk and thinking habits, you realise without belief there is no action. So belief is everything.

The person we listen to more than anyone else in life is ourselves. We talk to ourselves in our head constantly. Re reaffirm what we think and believe about ourselves continually. If we can learn to tap into this power, and start giving ourselves more positive commands, then we can grow both personally and professionally in a much more congruent way than simply through thinking, planning and attempting things in only the physical aspect of our affiliate business.

Why Business Owners Seek to Enter Foreign Markets

It is no longer news that business investors from around the world look at entering foreign markets in order to expand their local business operations or diversify their investments and establish new operations in the international market.

Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial and growing companies consider international expansion as a marketing and growth strategy.

If you have been successful in your business for some time and you have already mastered everything about running a business, overseas expansion may just be the logical next move you have to make.

On the flip side, for a majority of others, just having an overseas registered company and business address makes more sense to them than moving over to these foreign countries to establish a brick-and-mortar office.

Whichever the case is, there are at least 7 reasons entrepreneurs incorporate an overseas company, subsidiary or a representative office.

1. EXPANSION. About 95% of the world’s consumer’s reside outside Nigeria. Entrepreneurs whose vision and target market is a global one would consider to enter new markets abroad thus increasing their company’s overall market share and growth potentials.

2. POSSIBLE UNTAPPED MARKET. The possibility of an untapped market in foreign jurisdictions may motivate a Nigerian entrepreneur to incorporate an overseas company, subsidiary or representative office of his/her local company. Nigerian entrepreneurs who produce and package local foodstuffs for sale abroad fall into this category.

3. PROXIMITY TO INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS/CUSTOMERS. Truth be told, the Internet hs done enough to bring businesses closer to buyers. However, for some reasons, several business transactions may still warrant a traditional business presence in the city or country of operation. An overseas office of a local company need not be that big, and may be a home business address, a paid virtual office, or a small/liaison office just for the sake of getting customer feedback and linking back to the Nigerian office.

4. CORPORATE IMAGE. In order to boost their corporate image in the eyes of customers, suppliers, investors and businesses, some entrepreneurs just register an overseas subsidiary of their Nigerian company. This gives their target audience an impression that they are a company with international networks. In situations like this, the “international entrepreneur” need not set up a brick-and-mortar office abroad, he/she only pays for a virtual registered office in such country plus a mailing and telephone forwarding service.

5. COMPETITION. The fact that competing businesses or brands are entering the overseas market and are doing well motivates entrepreneurs in similar businesses to follow suit.

6. INTERNATIONAL PAYMENT. There are quite a number of international banking options available to companies registered in overseas jurisdictions – whether you are currently established in the overseas country or operating the overseas company from Nigeria. Having a corporate checking account abroad makes international payment much more easier by direct deposits, cheque or international wire transfers.

7. MIGRATION. Entrepreneurs considering a migration or move to an overseas country may incorporate a company in the destination country pending the time of their travel.

The United Kingdom, for instance, grants an Entrepreneur Visa to persons outside the European Union to gain entry to the UK for business reasons.
