How to Create More Abundance in Your Life and Business

abundance
Would you like more abundance in your life and business? I think most people would. I can always use more! 🙂

I’m going to share some strategies on how to do just that in this article. But first, let’s define what abundance is, so we’re on the same page.

Merriam-Webster has 3 definitions for abundance:
1) an ample quantity
2) affluence; wealth
3) relative degree of plentifulness

I think many people equate abundance with wealth. But money alone won’t make you happy. (Even though some people think so!) I believe having an abundance of peace, love and joy along with that money makes for a full, rich life.

I’ve been helping business owners create a profitable online presence through SEO copywriting and other online marketing strategies for nearly 10 years now. In that time, I’ve struggled with abundance, and have seen many of clients do the same. I’ve come to believe that one of the reasons for this is that many people have some unconscious limiting beliefs that are holding them back.

The Hidden Costs of Running a Home-Based Business

home business costs
By Kevin Conner

Starting a home-based business can be a great endeavor that changes your life for the better, but setup can be a massive effort that will require proper planning, some investment, and a lot of your time.

Part of that is budgeting and determining your costs, and we know you’re doing your research. That being said, there are some hidden costs that you might not immediately consider. In this article, we want to point out some of the most common hidden costs you should be planning for sooner or later, so a minor issue doesn’t become a business-breaking dilemma.

Home Office Space

You’ve probably already factored this cost in, but what level of dedication have you already put into it? Do you have a clean, clear and well-lit room to work in, or a corner of a living room where you are prone to distractions? We promise that you won’t be able to easily bear with the latter for too long, at least not in a way that allows you to live up to your potential.

Be Inspired to Make a Positive Difference in Life

What inspires you? I’ve been inspired for the last several months to record Facebook Lives that focus on the Daily Word from Unity.

What is Unity?

According to their website, Unity is the world’s premier resource for spiritual support. Their mission is to help and serve millions through publishing and media, events and retreats, a 24/7 prayer line, and spiritual centers around the world.

One of the things they publish is the Daily Word magazine, which is something my mother subscribed to when I was a child, and I rediscovered last year when I visited a Unity church for the first time.

I know this blog normally talks about social media and marketing and SEO. And I will still share articles on those subjects from time to time.

Getting Your Start in the Gig Economy with 7 Simple Tips

Gig Economy

By Lucy Reed

As the cost of living keeps rising, more and more people are turning to gig jobs to generate income. A gig can be temporary, short-term work or a long-term financial solution. Whether you want to earn a little extra money on the side or find more permanent freelance work, there are a few pieces of advice you’ll want to keep in mind to get started and be successful in setting up your own gig-based business venture. 

Build a Budget You Can Live With

If you’re working a gig simply to earn some extra cash, you may not need to worry about a budget. But if freelancing is your sole source of income or you need to pay off bills, you’ll want to set some pretty strict budget rules. Unlike those weekly paychecks, gig income can be inconsistent, and clients may not always pay on time. Exercise caution when spending and be sure to tuck some funds away for slow periods.

To stay within your means, take advantage of the many free online business tools that will help you launch and promote your business. For example, Oberlo offers a business name and slogan generator, logo maker website calculator that can help give your new company a professional look and show you how many people are visiting your website. You can also create a free website via services like Wix and Weebly, or simply create a Facebook business page to get your name out to your social circles and beyond.

How to be a Local Hero on Google

Local SEO

Local SEO has become something of a buzzword over the last couple of years. And that’s not surprising. After all, there is little point in your local grocer ranking in first place in a national search – she needs locals to support her business after all.

SEO experts agree that it makes a lot more sense to focus on local SEO, especially as technology advances. Search engines are able to pinpoint a user’s location and show her relevant results in the same area. Technology is also changing the way we perform searches.

Voice search is already firmly establishing itself. Virtual assistants like Siri and Cortana are getting better at understanding what we say and are delivering more accurate results overall. This, of course, means that we have to change the way we run SEO campaigns.

The “Silent” Partner in Your Business Success

partner business success

If you’re a solopreneur like I am, you may long for a partner to help you achieve business success faster. Creating a business partnership has advantages. It can help you bridge the gap in expertise and knowledge that you may be lacking. A partner might provide a cash infusion that the business needs. And a partner can bring new opportunities to the business that you wouldn’t necessarily find on your own.

There are risks to having a partnership. Now you’ve got someone else invested in the business who may not always see things your way. There’s a greater chance of conflict and instability in a partnership. That’s why many solopreneurs opt to build a team of people instead.

You can hire virtual assistants to manage things like social media, copywriting, accounting, etc. It’s easier to grow when you have people doing the things you don’t like to do, or the things that are too time-consuming when you should be engaging in revenue generating activities.

Follow Your Passion and Trust the Outcome

follow your passion

I’ve frequently heard coaches and other experts say, “Follow your passion and the money will come.”

It seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?

I know many small business owners who have a passion for what they do, but they’re still struggling when it comes to money.

I think the disconnect comes about because even though we may be following our passion, there are frequently limiting beliefs that get in the way, and hold us back from the prosperity and abundance we desire.

I’m going through this process right now.

By Jock Purtle
Just because you don’t have a big business, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a powerful marketing strategy. A lot of companies assume that their one-person marketing department stops them from doing much with their promotional messages. However, the truth is that you can have just as big of an impact on your followers, clients, and even potential business buyers with one person, as you could with an entire marketing team.

The key to attracting, informing and delighting your customers online isn’t having the right amount of workforce – it’s ensuring that you have the resources available to manage the marketing avenues available to you.

Here, we’re going to take a look at just five of the top tools that a one-person marketing team can use, to access all the potential of a gigantic advertising department.
