There is nothing wrong with running a small business. Moreover, small business owners are familiar with their product, their business plans and the way their brand develops. However, it would be wrong to say that small business owners don’t daydream about their small business turning into the big international company. These dreams may be a bit easier to come true than it is obvious at the first glance. Here are some of the ways small businesses can get the taste of the international market and become a part of it. Internet makes it all possible as all markets are united into the global market.

Have a Website

First thing’s first, if you want to be internationally or at least widely known, for starters, you need a good website. Don’t overpay for it, but definitely hire an expert to make your website and to do proper onsite and offsite SEO for it. If the website doesn’t work well and people don’t like it, the whole thing is doomed.

Social Networking

Website is not enough. Your business needs a fast, reliable and quick way of interacting with its clients and potential customers. It needs to delivers your marketing message and it needs to establish a brand. Communication is the key and social networks are just the thing that make this happen. You can run your social network campaigns on your own, but once again, you can hire somebody to deal with that part as organizing this sort of campaign may be tedious for some small business owners.

Export Documentation

If you are about to become an internationally recognized brand that deals with people all over the world, you need to be very careful about the documentation needed for exporting your goods and for working with companies and clients that are not in your country. While this may be a very simple thing for businesses that sell ebooks or something similar, it may prove to be a challenge for some that have more complex merchandise to deliver and export. Be prepared and don’t allow this to catch you unprepared when the orders start coming.

Live Up to Promises

Marketing campaigns can be very well made and they can make your product and your business seem just perfect, but you need to make sure that you can live up to everything that you advertise. Otherwise, all the effort that you have put into your campaign is about to turn sour. Look at the big brands and learn from them. You buy from them and you use them because you know exactly what you get when using them. That is the standard that you want for yourself, otherwise, your efforts to become an international bran will fail.

Team Up

One of the ways to become a big brand is to team up with another company with the same goal and do it together. This is more than possible and it works best if the companies are compatible. Also, company incorporation by some of the big players in the game of international business should not be something that you should fear. Perhaps that is your big ticket to the world. It would save you the trouble of finding the market and it would save you the enormous costs of marketing to the unknown markets and clients.

Growing into a brand that is known worldwide is something that every small business strives. With careful planning and a couple of smart and bold moves, it is quite possible to outgrow the neighborhood and set off to the waters of the international business.

Obviously, you need some capital for investment if you are about to become a stock trader. However, another and equally important thing that you need is knowledge and the readiness to improve it and implement it. Your trading skills may already be good if you are not the absolute beginner in trading but you can always do better and there are always new things to find out about as trading is a very dynamic field and it moves very quickly. Therefore, here are the ways that you can use to develop your trading skills and to make the most of them by becoming the best trader you can be.

Simulators

There is not a better way to hone your skills in some area than to try doing it with reduced risks. That is why there are so many opportunities to try your trading skills by using some of the trading simulators. These simulators come in more or less realistic forms that are designed to help you understand the movements and the trends of the market. They mimic the market and they are the best way for you to check if you are ready for the real thing. All you need to do is to try and find the best simulator for yourself.

Websites

However, before you plunge into the game, you have to know the rules. While reading material and research are not the most popular way of learning, they surely are one of the most successful ways of making your skills better. There are tons of different websites that give you all the info that you need and answer to all your questions about stock trading. Websites like Investopedia or StockCharts will give you an answer to just about any question that you want to ask. There are many more very useful websites about stock trading education, of course, so you just have to take a look and take your pick among them.

Experts

Once you have read your reading material and you tried your simulators, some of the things that you don’t know how to overcome are bound to happen. All these training options are more or less tailored for everybody and after a while, they are not sufficient for improving your skills. What you need at that point is some personal approach to your trading technique and method and somebody who will observe you and give you some useful advice. This means that you should look online and offline and find somebody like Tim Sykes, John Bollinger or Alexander Elder. This may come at a price, but having the more objective approach on your trading skills is of priceless value.

It is always important to grow and to learn all you can when it comes to trading. Even if one of these training options are not what you hoped them to be, make sure that you make the most of them and that you learn from that experience.

The stock market is a great area of opportunities and there are great chances for every one with a proper knowledge and feel to earn their living trading. However, one needs to be well informed and adaptable in order to be successful. To help you get familiar with activities on the stock market and pave the way for your future domination, here is a set of useful tips that will surely come in handy, regardless whether you are a total novice or a semi experienced stock market trader.

Be prepared and alert

Stock trade market is not a lottery. You cannot base your earnings on pure luck; you need to be familiar with essentials on how the stock market works in general. There are a lot of different categories when it comes to stock market trading, it is almost impossible to be successful at all of them, so narrow your choices. Also, be always alert and monitor what is happening in your areas of choice. Be prepared to act instantly and do not loose your patience.

Commodities

Investing in commodities that consumers can never do without is one of the best investments available. Yes, the prices vary and always fluctuate, but these are the things that will always be sought after and proper timing is what will bring profit, coupled with patience and not expecting to make a fortune over night, even thou it would not be the first time someone did. For example, trading in gold and oil has been very profitable for decades, even centuries, there is no reason that it would not be in the future too and they are goods that will always be sought after

Low value stocks

Investing in low value stocks is an opportunity to double or triple your money without risking too much. The key is to invest in stocks that had hit the bottom recently, or that are at their historic minimum. It is safe to assume that, unless the business went bankrupt, their value will eventually increase again, bringing you profit at a very low risk rate.

Use applications

There are a number of useful applications that can help you monitor stocks value, group them into categories, provide timely reports and keep you updated in general. Most of these applications have highly customizable interfaces and have all the markets in the world available and comparable at a push of a button. Make use of them. To see how this works in general, without any expense, try Equity feed free trial. I am willing to bet that you will find it very useful

Know when to sell

Selling the stocks is as important as buying them, that is the timing of it is. You are trading bonds to make a profit, not to own anything. It is the real value that matters, not the virtual one. Therefore, do not prolong the sale waiting to make an extra profit while risking the whole investments. Set your realistic goals and achieve them.

Once again, successful stock trading is all about being prepared, alert and timely. If you fit into all three criteria equally, you are surely to dominate the market at any area you choose.

The Different Types of Ads on Facebook: Learn about Them and Implement Them

I’ve been thinking about doing this post for several weeks because one part of our Facebook Marketing class that is often very difficult for our students is creating a publicity strategy.

Now, they don’t always tell us directly that this is the case, but they say things like: “I just want to create an ad that works and that I can run whenever I want.” “I want to figure out what ads to run, when to run them, and what sector of the public to direct them at.” Or “I want to know what ads work best depending on what stage of my sales funnel I’m on.”

I was surprised by this because I was expecting the creative part to be the hardest for them, or perhaps the goals or technical subjects pertaining to the use of Power Editor…

But in the end the conclusion that I’ve reached is that I need to write a post that talks about the different kinds of ads according to what step you’re focusing on and what demographic you’re targeting. Are you ready for this? Let’s begin!

facebook advetising

>>> Facebook ads to get Likes for your page <<<

-For people who visit your webpage

Ad type: Promoting your page

Demographic: Personalized demographic > Traffic from the website

Let’s take a look at ads aimed at getting Likes for your Facebook page from users who have visited your webpage, in other words, retargeting. To do this you should insert a pixel code that Facebook generates for you onto your website’s home page.

This is a great option because you know we’re dealing with users who have already shown interest in what you do since they’ve been to your website and will probably recognize your business when they see it in the newsfeed.

- For your subscribers database

Type of ad: Promoting your page

Demographic: Personalized demographic > Client list

With this ad what we want to do is show it to the users who are subscribed to our newsletter, for example. To do this, you’ll need to upload your database to Facebook (I recommend using .txt format since .csv sometimes causes problems).

- For fans of pages that are similar to yours

Type of ad: Promoting your page

Demographic: Utilizing ‘interests’ > Similar pages

Another great option is targeting people who have Liked a page that either belongs to one of your competitors or complements your business.

This is as simple as selecting the name of the desired Facebook page in the interest. This will obviously be a little bit less specific than the other two options, but it can still point people with certain interests in your market niche or product type towards your business.

* IMPORTANT: Remember to always exclude users who are already fans of your page.

>>> Facebook ads for expanding your database <<<

- Convert your fans into email accounts

Ad type: Attract people to your website

Demographic: Your fans

One of the most important steps in your marketing funnel is converting your fans into email subscribers. You can achieve this more easily by using a landing page with a free product giveaway, such as an e-book or a sale or a class that requires the participants to register with an email address.

Your fans are probably the easiest demographic to deal with on Facebook, so you should enjoy a higher conversion rate with them.

- Offer a giveaway to fans of similar pages

Ad type: Attracting people to your website

Demographic: Utilizing ‘interests’ > Similar pages

This is a little less specific than using your own fan base, but even so, this demographic has a certain level of interest in your sector. Once again, in this case you’re directing people who’ve Liked other pages that complement your business in some way, or you can be even more aggressive and go for your competitors’ fans directly (you have to be a Rebel, even on Facebook, right?).

>>> Facebook ads that sell your products <<<

- Sell to your fans

Ad type: Bring people to your website

Demographic: Your fans

Everybody who runs ads on Facebook seems to think that this type of ad is going to bring them Coca-Cola-style success, but it’s not always as easy as you might think. The good news, however, is that from the moment your fans see this ad, they already recognize your business and so you’ve already got their confidence.

- Sell to your subscribers or buyers

Ad type: Attract people to your website

Demographic: Personalized demographic > Customer list

When you launch a new product, in general the first audience you show the launching to is your subscriber list. We really like using this demographic (subscriber or customer databases) on Facebook because it works great as a test audience.

- Sell to people who are interested in your product

Ad type: Attract people to your website

Demographic: Personalized demographic > Traffic from the website (URL of the product that you want to sell)

We’ve talked about remarketing (or retargeting) hundreds of times on the Online Rebels blog. But the difference in this case is that we aren’t going to show the ad to users who have visited our homepage; instead, we’re only going to show it to people who have visited the page for the product that we want to sell to them.

This type of ad is very effective since we already know for sure that this person has expressed interest in that specific product.

* IMPORTANT: When you create ads with the goal of converting (whether sales or registrations), you should set up a conversion tracker with the pixel that Facebook creates. That way, you’ll be able to keep track of how many conversions each ad makes. This pixel is a small html code that you should insert on your sales process’s thank you page (the page that confirms that the sale went through).

>>> Facebook ads for promoting your content <<<

- Promote your content to your fans

Ad type: Attract people to your website

Demographic: Your fans

This specific ad type is very important because due to the recent changes to Facebook the organic demographic that we reach with our posts is very small, and if we want our content to expand to generate value, confidence, and authority, we have to pay… Keep in mind that for this type of ad, content is what’s going to give us the foundation for making more sales further down the road.

In this specific case we can focus on our Facebook fans.

- Promote your content to a demographic similar to that of your subscriber database

Ad type: Attract people to your website

Demographic: Similar personalized demographic

In addition to being able to upload your subscriber database to Facebook, this gives us the option of being able to create a demographic that’s similar to the database that we’ve uploaded. That way we can get a demographic that’s different from the one that we already had but which has tastes and interests that are very similar to the one in our database, which means that there’s a good chance that they’ll like our content, too.

The real estate Mumbai latest news of the festive season does not seem to have brought good and satisfying news. The year before the market speculation was of a high demand but it fell flat on the face when the buyers were not keen on making investments in the market.

What was the scene in Mumbai?

There were many buyers offering seasonal offer to the customers which is a common practice yet that was not enough to attract the buyers to part with their money. All the relevant forces were seen working towards improving the conditions but in vein. The developers have offered a discount along with bank cutting on the interest rates to lure buyers, it was seen that the public sector banks and the private sector banks were making all efforts they could to attract the customers.

Bank rates, for example for home loan, property loans were cut down substantially and there were also supported with the processing fees which was either waved off in most cases are reduced to bare minimum. The public sector, state Bank has known to have offered the lowest interest rate on home loan which was close to 9.75%. ICICI a private bank was not far behind offering a lowered interest rate of 10.25%.

Despite the efforts the customers’ sentiments towards the Mumbai real estate market were skeptical. It was not the market they feel safe investing in and thus the real estate has to suffer losses due to the market response. The developers, however, have recovered and the new developments have picked up. The new areas are the suburbs where there are affordable developments that are looked up as great investment options.

When most of the link building blogs and forums out there talk about link building, you will usually hear about blog posts, article marketing and social marketing.  But one of the most tried and tested methods out there that still works today is link directory submissions.

Basically what you want to do is add SEO links to web directories.  You need to make sure that they are quality and established web directories like OrangeLinker.com. Most of these premium SEO link directories have an option for a featured listing that gets you the most exposure and quick inclusion to their site.

improve website ranking

While it might be tempting to use SEO submit software to submit your link and improve website ranking, I would actually recommend that you do manual submissions to get the best results.

Some web directories allow you to submit deep links as well, and you should take advantage of them. Deep links are links to the inner pages of your website, and by submitting the inner pages of your site, you will be able to ensure that you have a well-rounded link profile.

Just remember that a good link profile includes links from blogs, articles, forums, and link directories. By ensuring good link diversity, your website will rank well on all of the search engines.

Top Tax Tips for Small Businesses

Maintaining good tax and accounting records and preparing your own tax return are major jobs that can take considerable time and effort. Small business owners are usually so busy running their businesses that these tasks can be neglected and they may not always have the budget to employ a chartered accountant. In London and other major cities in your region look out for government funded Business Hubs that will often provide some free information to give you a helping hand with tax affairs. If you do not completed your paperwork fully and accurately you could end up costing your business a significant amount of money in fines and interest on unpaid taxes. Keeping that in mind, take a look at these top tips for making your business more efficient with regard to all issues relating to tax.

Keep a separate bank account just for tax

It is essential to open a distinctly separate bank account into which you transfer regular amounts to cover your tax bills. Depending on when you get paid by clients and customers set up a periodic automated payment. This will help with controlling your cash flow and ensuring you have sufficient funds once your tax bill arrives. If you keep funds intended for tax payments in your main business bank account it is all too easy to spend that money before the bill arrives then receive a nasty shock and risk potential fines if you are unable to pay the full amount.

Tax Tips for Small Businesses

Use tax efficient payment schemes

Companies that are set up with one or more directors can often pay the directors a basic salary and then their remaining income can come from dividend payments (assuming the company has adequate profit to issue a dividend). This does not affect the amount of corporation tax a company will pay but it will minimise the amount of personal tax that the directors have to pay and happy executives make for a happy company.

Claim back Value-Added-Tax (VAT) on bad debts

If any client defaults on a payment then your business will not want to have to pay VAT or sales tax on the unpaid debt, particularly since you will already be out-of-pocket. So remember that for any invoices remaining unpaid after 6 months the business can reclaim any sales tax or VAT that has already been paid.

Take advantage of free advice from an accountant

Whilst your business may not be able to employ a highly qualified chartered accountant, especially if you are based in London or some of the other very expensive cities worldwide, there are still various government-backed initiatives designed to help start-up businesses, often with free accounting and tax advice available. However, accountants and tax advisers can be more affordable than you might think and a fixed-fee accountancy service can help budget effectively for these costs. What many business owners soon realise is that an accountant is one of those costs worth paying for the peace of mind that all your tax affairs have been handled correctly; that you have paid the right amount of tax – neither too much nor too little.

There are also many ways in which an accountant can save you money because they are familiar with all the current tax-reliefs available, and hence can easily cover their fee in the tax savings they make for you.
