If you go out and purchase a top-of-the-line computer, it is very likely that in less than six months it will no longer be considered top-of-the-line. If you currently have a computer and you want it to be able to perform more functions, you don’t have to get rid of it and spend a lot of money on a new system. You can simply purchase components to upgrade your computer. If you seriously consider upgrading your computer, now is a perfect time to do so.

by: Gillian Tarawhiti

                                     <span class="style2">AFFILIATE PROGRAMS...WHO'S REALLY MAKING THE MONEY?<br />By Gillian Tarawhiti<br />Community Training Centre<br />http://www.millionairerippleeffect.com<br /><br />There will be a million and one affiliates out there who will tell you that the affiliate program they promote is going to be the best one for you.<br /><br />But have you considered who is really making the money and who gains the most out of affiliate programs.<br /><br />Let's take a step back and look at the AFFILIATE.<br /><br />What exactly is the role of the affilate?<br /><br />* The sole purpose of the affiliate is to PROMOTE the product and/or service<br /><br />What are the benefits of being an affiliate?<br /><br />* Get paid a minimal commission that is regulated by the owner of the product/service<br /><br />In short, As an affiliate it is your responsibility to make someone else rich whilst doing all the hard work. You take on the expenses of advertising, you are the one who usually misses out on subscribers if you haven't first made them your client before they buy the product/service you are promoting.<br /><br />And all this for what??? Maybe $20 per sale if you are really, really lucky.<br /><br />You also need to remember that when you are an affiliate, YOU are not the only person promoting that very same product/service.<br /><br />So what will make your offer any different to someone else who is promoting the exact same product, usually using the same sales technique, offering it at the same price.<br /><br />To be in the top 5%, which is the amount of affiliates who make more than $100.00 per month, you need to first have a really good, clean, targeted subscribers list of more than 50,000 subscribers, know exactly how to gain targeted traffic, and have a huge advertising budget.<br /><br />For the other 95%, the only way you are going to make alot of money from and affiliate program is to OWN YOUR OWN.<br /><br />It really isn't as hard as you might think to set up.<br /><br />So in conclusion, the best AFFILIATE PROGRAM, obviously is the one you OWN.</span>

Realism vs. Optimism in the Business Plan

Realism vs. Optimism in the Business Plan

by: Dave Lavinsky

The most important function of a business plan is to create interest among investors so that they write a check. In achieving this goal, business plan writers are often challenged by determining the proper level of optimism in their plan. That is, they must create a compelling story to investors while maintaining credibility.

Optimism shows investors that a company is confident about the market opportunity, its ability to execute on the opportunity, etc. Over-optimism, however, leads investors to believe that the management team does not fully understand the opportunity or the tough road ahead. As such, business plans must be sure to limit over-optimism and show investors they are realistic and credible.

Realism, the opposite of over-optimism, should be used in business plans to portray sobriety and credibility to investors. Realism should manifest itself in management team bios that tell the actual accomplishments of managers, rather than fluff. It should manifest itself in credible market forecasts and sober assumptions of the company’s growth.

While business plans must excite investors so they take action, if they are too optimistic, investors will discount their merit. Conversely, if they are too sober, investors may not feel they will get an adequate return on their investment. As such, business plans should present a compelling, optimistic picture, but continuously refer to hard facts and realistic assumptions to build credibility and genuine excitement

The importance of planning

The importance of planning

by: scott morris

Are you planning to start a new business? Or are you considering expanding your current business and require a bank loan or investment from outsiders?

If you are going to look for an investment of capital it is quite likely that you will be required to have a business plan. If you are starting a business, despite the work involved, a business plan can prepare you for the obstacles ahead and help ensure your success.

A business plan is something that many small businesses fail to create, however, many business owners are adamant that having a written business plan is one of the keys to their present success. Creating a business plan forces you to contemplate possible obstacles to your business and prepares you to find solutions that will help you to overcome them.

To find investors or get a bank loan, they will want to see that you have the experience or resources to run the business. They will want to see your projected income as well as your suggested repayment plan already laid out. Taking the time to do this is not only important for them, but it gives you a measuring tool to verify if your business is growing properly. You can gage your success on how close to the plan your business has actually performed. Perhaps you’ll do worse, or perhaps you’ll do better, either way it helps you determine how well your business is getting on.

If you have never seen a business plan before you may be concerned that is is too difficult a proposition for you to manage on your own.

While there are services available where you can hire someone to write a business plan for you, depending on your needs it may be wise to familiarize yourself with a business plan’s layout. This will not only help you to provide the necessary information, but may encourage you to try your own hand at it.

There’s a free tool at www.bdc.ca which will assist you in creating a business plan. Some of the topics you will be required to explain are your Market, Customer, Competition, Marketing Plan, Research & Development along with financial forecasts. You may consider hiring someone to help you with your financial sheets after completing the written part of the Business Plan.

Your Business Plan will become your guide and silent business partner – indicating where you need to improve and helping you stay one step ahead of your competition. Make it a priority to have this crucial road map for your business.
