    10 steps to success in direct marketing

    By Shelley Lowery

    If you're looking for a lucrative homebased business, direct marketing may be just what you've been looking for; Offering you the possibilities of making your dreams come true.

    WHAT IS DIRECT MARKETING?

    Direct marketing is offering a product or service directly to the consumer via mail order, Internet sales, personal sales, etc., with no middleman involved. Many direct marketing companies are now being operated right out of the home. Home based business is the waive of the future and can offer you a wonderful opportunity to actually be able to compete with the large, well established companies with large bank accounts. That's what is so wonderful about the Internet. You don't have to have a large bank account to succeed. You just have to have a little "know how."

    * 10 Steps to insure your success

    1. SET YOUR GOALS
    What do you want to accomplish? Do you want a new home? Do you want to save for your children's college education? A new car? You can have whatever you want, but you must want it enough to do the things that have to be done in order to get it. Set your goals, write them down and set a target date for reaching them. Set short term reachable goals and long term higher goals, yet don't set them too high. This will cause you to become discouraged if you don't achieve them. Work consistently towards accomplishing your goals each day, each week and each month until you reach your short term goals. When you have attained your short term goals, set them a little higher each time. Ultimately you will achieve your long term goals. Goal-setting is a must in every area of life.

    2. BE SELF DISCIPLINED
    Get up early each day. Get ready for your job as if you were working outside your home. Have a list of all the things you want to accomplish during the day. This will give you an organized approach to each day. It's amazing how much you can get done using a "To Do" list.

    3. BE SELF MOTIVATED
    Set up a schedule and stick to it. Be Enthusiastic. Enthusiasm generates its own energy. Energy and good health are synonymous with motivated, happy people. Achievers.

    4. BE ENTHUSIASTIC
    Positive thinking will literally be your key to success. You have to convince yourself that you can succeed at whatever you desire, because you can.

    5. DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME DISCOURAGED
    Remember... The more "NO's" you get, the closer to a "YES" you become.

    6. SCHEDULE YOUR TIME WISELY
    A schedule is your roadmap to success. If you have no direction, you'll travel in circles and ultimately never reach your goals. Plan your work then work your plan.

    7. HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

    Success is 90 percent attitude and 10 percent aptitude. Learn the art of positive thinking. You can do whatever you put your mind to. It's mind over matter. Your attitude will either guarantee your success or guarantee your failure. You're only a failure if you give up.  

    8. SET UP AN OFFICE AREA
    Most direct marketers work from their own homes, but it is still essential to set up a specified work area. Take pride in your business to insure your success.

    9. HANDLE YOUR MONEY WISELY
    Set up a written budget. Set aside a percentage of your business income to put back into your business. This is a must. Failure to reinvest your money will result in the failure of your business.

    10. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
    Get plenty of sleep, eat right and take some time to stop and smell the roses... Be Persistent... Persistence Pays Off... Don't Give Up... Most Businesses fail Just At The Moment They Are About To Succeed...

    Sales is one of the highest paid of all professions. "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime."
