In light of all the changes that are occurring in the world, there are many people that desire to make multiple streams of income in their businesses to give them the security that they need. As an entrepreneur, this should always be your goal and it is not as hard as you make think to make it reality in your life and business.

Creating multiple streams of income without trying to use get rich quick scams, or doing something that is completely against your ethics can be your reality after you get clear as to where you want your business to go and how much money you want to make.  

Implementing these 7 strategies will set you up to successfully achieve multiple streams of income:

1. Always have low priced valuable items to sell

These lower priced items is the way that you are going to be able to get your foot in the door to help your potential customers. This will give them a taste of what you are about and if you give them enough value, for a low price, they will be compelled to work with you further. When you are thinking about your lower priced items, your goal should be to turn a customer into a repeat customer.

2. Write a book

To clarify, writing a book usually will not make you rich unless you have a huge following and can get a book deal. But what it can do is help you to have a book sized business card that no one will probably lose or throw away and you will be able to make money off of that same book if it is priced correctly.

A book that is written well and positioned correctly is a client magnet that can generate money from new and existing customers. It also gives you social proof to position yourself as the expert which can also bring clients knocking at your door.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” – Maya Angelou

3. Launch a virtual summit

Summits have been known to attract a nice sized crowd while giving you the ability to create multiple ways for you to make money. With a viable summit you will be able to make money upon registration, with partners that you have strategically partnered with, and if you have marketed it correctly and was able to draw in a nice sized crowd, you can choose to sell something during the summit.

4. Create an online course

Your ideal customers are hungry to learn about what you have to offer them. An online course makes it convenient and available. If you record it once effectively and give the value that your customers are looking for, you can use it again multiple times by just updating it by adding the best value and taking away things that are no longer working. Your online course can also be repurposed for other things that you can sell like virtual workshops, mini courses, and boot camps.

5. Start doing bi-monthly, monthly, or quarterly webinars

Webinars are amazing tools for you to make an impact on your audience as well as your pocket book. You can either do a paid webinar or a free webinar offering the people that are eager to work with you at the end an opportunity that they can’t refuse.

6. Create an effective up-sell

Effective up-sells help you give a person what they need that compliments something that they are already getting. Imagine that these people are checking out at a grocery store, they will see your valuable offer that is something that they now realize that they need and want. Think about how many times that you’ve walked into a store and didn’t know that you needed something until you saw it.

Once someone sees the valuable item that you have for sale for a reasonable price, they will have that same spontaneous desire to buy that so many others have also had. Perhaps, you are giving them something for free and you have this great product or service that can go along with it.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to introduce your irresistible offer and give them something priced just right for them to add value to what they already have. This strategy is best accomplished with an effective traffic generating plan. The more traffic that comes to sign up for what you have, the more people that will purchase.

“If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work.” –Dale Carnegie

7. Launch a membership site

Membership sites done correctly are amazing ways for you to give value for a reasonable amount and also have the opportunity to make a lot of cash. Depending on the kind of site that you create, members will be privileged to a certain amount of valuable content that you will give them on a monthly basis.

These are usually with no contracts so members could cancel their subscription at any time. The good thing is that if you are giving great value and have a certain amount of members per month, you can build up a lucrative residual income that can bring you security while you build up all of your other streams of income.

The very wealthy have said that you shouldn’t have less than seven streams of income and if you haven’t created your seven yet, utilizing these strategies will help you to get there.

How You Can Start Networking in Style in 2023

By investing your time and effort in networking, you will gain more business through the relationships you make

Are you completely new to networking?

Then this article is a great place to start. Networking isn’t hard on paper…you go along to online and in-person meetings, make new connections and build relationships, and those relationships lead to more work so you can grow your business! The challenge is that in reality, it isn’t quite so straightforward, as our emotions get involved and make things much tougher.

It’s incredibly common for nerves to creep in and to feel overwhelmed and apprehensive when it comes to networking – even when it isn’t new to you. But how can you become more successful at it, feel less self-conscious, and make networking work for you and your business?

Here’s a few tips to help you embrace every business networking opportunity you get, so you can grow your business and achieve your goals.

Rock up with confidence

If you want to keep those nerves at bay and ooze confidence at networking get-togethers, you’ll need to downplay it rather than seeing it as a big occasion. Try not to put pressure on yourself and see it as a casual meet-up with a bunch of people with similar goals to you. To help you relax in the run-up to the event, be sure to set achievable goals and expectations before you go.

Keep your chin up and your goals in mind – positivity is key. One easy goal for your first networking meeting is very simply to speak to one other person and see where the conversation goes. Introduce yourself and your business, but take the time to listen to their story, too. It’ll only take a few minutes and will be over before you know it, so it’s nothing to fear. You may even enjoy it and want to speak to a few more people, too!

“You can close more business in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.” – Dale Carnegie

Where to go networking

If you’ve never been networking before, it might not be very easy to find a group – but only because there’s so much choice and you don’t know where to start your search! Groups come in different sizes and styles, so it’s important to find one that suits you and your business. Informal, formal, big, small… the choice is yours.

For your first meeting, start small to ease yourself in – a big group could prove too daunting, and stop you from feeling comfortable enough to get involved. After all, you want to make a strong first impression!

If you’re wondering which group to opt for in the long-term, give a few a go! Get a feel for them, speak to as many people as you can, and see which one suits! You’ll know when a group feels right for you, and you can see where those all-important relationships are most likely to be built. If a group doesn’t feel like the right for you, give a different one a go.

Get more leads and referrals

This will happen for you, as long as you put the effort into building those relationships. If you take the time to get to know people, and then check in with them and support them, they’ll see you as a trustworthy and reliable contact who they can call on. And when they feel that way, those leads and referrals you’re looking for will come a-knocking.

Once you’ve made relationships with people who you trust, and they’ve had a positive experience working with you, you can even ask for referrals! But don’t rush this, as you don’t want to inadvertently push people away or try and force the relationship along too quickly.

When you do get an opportunity to work with someone you’ve met at a networking group, go above and beyond to offer more value than they’re expecting, as then, they’ll be much more likely recommend you and introduce you to more of their contacts!

Grow your business

By investing your time and effort in networking, you will gain more business through the relationships you make, and you will be able to grow your business.

We know that it’s not easy, going networking for the very first time. And that’s why we want to give you all the advice and tools that you need so you can walk in with confidence and make the most of the opportunity.

2023 is just around the corner, and you have the chance to make it the year you make networking work for your business. And the benefits could be incredibly amazing for your business, just like they have been for ours, and many business owners we have worked with over the years.
