Growing new income streams

Down the years, many have joined a company and thought: ‘that is me set for life.’

Unfortunately this is no longer true. A job for life no longer exists alongside final pension plans. All consigned to history.

It has meant there has been a change of emphasis, when planning how your life will pan out.

The biggest issue is creating a growing income. Some sectors have not seen a pay rise in over four years, whilst others have seen such minimal rise that are not worth writing about.

Last night, I was speaking to a young lady who has been rewarded with a pay rise of 13p per hour before tax. Her part time job (22 hours) now pays an extra £2.86 per week before tax. Not even enough for a coffee in one of the tax dodging outlets on our High Street.

How can a person be expected to create a future with income like that?

Presently this young lady is around £200 per month short of income, and struggling to find a job that pays more, since employers feel she does not have the qualifications or experience.

I have offered to work with her and help improve the future prospects through support and training, and together we have established a route for the creation of extra monthly income based on part time activity (usually five to ten hours a week), which will continue to grow and grow. There is no cap on earnings.

This excites me, since it shows that multiple income streams is a positive way forward for a person, who previously may not have thought they had a way out of simply surviving.

For some of you, this will be true too, and if this rings a bell, then could I suggest checking out this link: Your route to new income streams there are three boxes to complete and an information pack will be sent to you immediately.

Through this company, I will be helping her become financially free and independent of outside concerns.

Some of her short term goals include:
Having a horse again, so she can go riding.
Having a life, rather than simply surviving.
Create enough income to open an animal sanctuary.
Affording a season ticket at rugby.

These are all attainable goals, and will be her motivation for success.

What goals do you have?

There is clear water ahead as we work together to create a new growing income.

 

 

 

Passive Income

How serious are you about creating one?

In today’s world of business, it is vital to have multiple streams of income, and one of those should be passive.

It provides a rock of steady and growing income each and every month.

We at Combyne Group have achieved that and would be delighted to share our knowledge with you.

Please either email hello@ combyne.co.uk or call Laurence on 0795 789 0 757 to find out more.

Work one hour overtime for free – Monday to Friday

Imagine you are at work one day… your boss comes to you and says,

“Bad news – we’re going to have to fire you. Business is bad. And the economy stinks.”

You feel depressed. No more career. No more regular wage.

And then the boss says,

“You know what? If you were to work just one extra hour overtime every day for free, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, we’ll let you keep your job and you can continue collecting your same wage.”

Now, what would you do?

Well, most people would say,

“Well, I will work the extra hour of overtime just to keep my job. I know I will be working the extra hour for free, but it is important to keep my present job.”

And then the boss says,

“Well, I know it’s kind of bad news for you but there is some good news. If you work an hour of overtime, Monday to Friday for no pay, just one extra hour a day . . . at the end of two years, we’ll let you retire at full pay.”

All of a sudden, how do you feel?

You feel like saying,

“Wow! Excellent! What an opportunity!
Just work one hour overtime for free, Monday to Friday, and two years from now . . . I retire at full pay!”

So what would happen?

You’re working overtime and six months later one of your friends says,

“Hey, why don’t you quit doing that? You’re working an hour’s overtime and not getting paid for it.”

You say to your friend,

“No way! I only have 18 more months to go and then I’m going to retire!”

A year from now, maybe your partner says,

“You know what? You’ve been working that free hour of overtime for the past 12 months. Why don’t you spend more time here at home instead of working that hour’s overtime?”

You say,

“No, no, no! Just one more year and I can retire at full pay.”

And you would be at work faithfully, Monday to Friday, working that overtime so you could retire.

And you would be excited about the opportunity.

Well, we have the same opportunity to retire with our business.

We ask people to spend one hour a day, Monday through Friday building a residual income business. And all you have to do is
. . . talk to some people.

And you don’t have to worry too much about what you say or how good you are, because you know what? You’ll get better. The longer you do this business, the more you’ll learn.

So maybe after the first month you say,

“I really don’t know what to say.”

The second month you get a little better and say,

“Well, I know the name of the company is the Wonderful Company.”

The third month you get better at this and say,

“I think this is a neat business. You might want to look at it.”

And the fourth month you get better and better.

Just invest an hour a day. And at the end of two years you might be pleasantly surprised and say,

“You know what, I can replace my full-time income and retire for the rest of my life.”

So . . . would you take advantage of that opportunity?

If you are like most people, you will want to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity . . . but, you won’t do it.

Here is why you won’t do it.

A little voice inside of your head is saying,

“But what if it doesn’t work? What if I waste an hour a day over those two years? What if I’m not good at this? I don’t know anyone who has retired in network marketing. I only know people who retired with a pension from a job. This might not be a sure thing.”

Yes, you’re going to have some doubt. You will have a belief problem.

And that’s pretty natural.

So here is what we are going to do to help you with your belief.

To encourage you along the way, every month we’re going to send you money on the 21st to your bank account  — just to keep your spirits up as you build your two-year business. When you get these regular monthly credits, you will say,

“I know it works! I’ve got these credits to prove it.”

And that is why you want to start your business today.

Residual Income – a real description

On Sunday 15 September, I attended the South of England half year conference with Utility Warehouse in Cheltenham – almost 2,000 there, and we are now looking for a larger venue for next year.

Some of us (the leaders) were discussing earnings over the years, and how they had built up over time.

The discussion turned to how long individual customers had been with us, and my first customer, I realised, had paid me for 190 months – in that time I have earnt £900 from this single customer, and still he pays me month in, month out whilst using the services. That is true residual income.

So for 60 minutes work, I have so far been paid £900. So how does your hourly rate compare?

Why does networking work?

UPDATE: June 2019

Lunch time networking is back on the agenda with OMNI Local Networking.

You can read more here: https://www.omnilocalbusinessnetworking.com/embankment-london

We meet every two weeks on the following dates:

OMNI is a membership based networking group, but entrenched in collaboration, rather than competition.

Come along and sample and if you like what you see and hear, please stay?

Exciting times.

This a question that crops up time and again – I simply enjoy the buzz of a successful breakfast. Yes, I accept networking for some on a cold winter morning is not fun, but you are in a warm and supportive environment, and cold is only felt, when you wear the wrong sort of clothes.

Also if morning is not your thing, then there are lunch time and evening groups – just accept though, numbers will be smaller.

More importantly, I was discussing the merits of networking with a colleague earlier this week, and I explained that an average group with BNI see 200 visitors a year through the door. Not all will join, but that is 200 companies looking to grow their business. Maybe, you have something to offer them through a joint venture? Or a product or service to make their life easier?

So no gate keepers, no voice mail, just you speaking direct to a decision maker.

How much effort do you have to put in to find 200 opportunities for new business? With a networking group it is presented to you, more or less on a plate, plus of course existing members will refer you too. Again no gate keepers, qualified leads and a warm welcome.

I am known as a networking tart – it is a great tag, and a reflection on the fact, I deliver again and again for members around the table, and they in turn deliver for me.

A real win-win.

With over 15 years of networking for my own business, I know it works, so why not give it a go at a number of different groups, and find one you like, then commit, and create a lasting stream of new leads.

Telecom plus Plc delivers again through photosynthesis

One of my friends spotted this and thought I would share it too:

This has to be one of the best reports I’ve read on the company. Even a non finance guy like me can understand it! I love the quote “Telecom Plus isn’t a normal utility, it’s not even a normal growth company, its more like a robust house plant, growing through photosynthesis and the odd sprinkling of water. And neither the sun nor rain get switched off”.

http://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/telecom-plus-both-weird-and-wonderful

For people looking to create new income streams, then the following is of vital interest, since it shows the potential profit for team members, which are called Independent Distributors.

“Over half of new sign-ups (55%) come in as Gold members, those taking at least four of its five services (gas, electricity, home phone, broadband, mobile), and when it gets them through the door, they tend to stick like flies to paper, churn down to just 1.2%.

What this means is that average revenue per user, or ARPU, rises on a seemingly unstoppable tide, jumping 14.5% to £1,363 last year. That’s nearly 200% up in 10 years and makes the £190 ARPU in its first year back in 1999 look laughably minuscule.”

I can write from direct knowledge, since I have been involved in the business since 1997, and the ARPU referred to above is so on the money, if you pardon the expression. :o)

And the future is looking brighter and brighter, as more people hear about the award winning services and customer care.

If you are in London on Monday 3rd June, then there is a massive presentation taking place in the evening – details here:

http://super-cop-london.eventbrite.co.uk

Update: Tuesday 4th June – what an extraordinary evening. Over 500 people came along to the event last night. Clive Leach and Robin Brooks were in stunning form as they presented the business to the assembled numbers. It truly was standing room only and the attendees were educated and entertained by two stars in our successful business.

5 Top Networking Tips

These are my interpretations and what works from experience, and forms part of 20 tips – have chucked in a sixth one as well, and please remember Networking is not Selling:

1) Attend events where you will meet people that suit your profession/industry/business. Some events are industry specific. Some also insist upon one represntative per sector. No point going to an event where you are not welcome.

2) Set yourself a target of what you are seeking to achieve at each event. SMART Applies. Mine is usually Five proper conversations with a total of Ten business cards/contacts based on a two hour event.

3) Prepare yourself before attending – right image (formal or informal), business cards, A6 book or pocket diary, pens x 3, own professional badge (costs £6). Often people will attend events without business cards or simply run out. So having a pocket diary or A6 book, means you can write down their details, and make contact after. I just picked up a new business colleague, because I was the only person to do that at a recent event.

4) Speak to the organiser prior to the day to find out how the event works – are you able/expected to address the room, or is it a round table event? So a 60 seconds presentation should be prepared to reflects the needs of the people in the room. And very importantly what you can and cannot do at the event. Some have house rules.

5) Make a friend of the organiser, and ensure he/she knows, who you are seeking to meet, and ask them who are the best networkers within his/her group, who are likely to attend. Ask for a direct introduction. Find out beforehand, whether there is a list of attendees issued, and it becomes a great tool to establish, who you wish to meet and therefore part of SMART.

and a number 6 – follow up by phone everyone you meet, not just email, and if you have promised something, an introduction, a further connection, do deliver. It will ensure people remember you for the right reasons.

Double Dip Recession – land of opportunities

The headlines screamed out this week that the UK economy had re-entered recession after two negative quarters back to back.

There are many of us who believe the economy has been in recession constantly since early 2008.

It does however, throw up marvellous opportunities for those of us with large databases of customers and contacts built over previous years.

The key to any business success is keeping ahead of the game, and being aware of what is out there ……. newsletter subscriptions are a great way of learning more, and there are plenty of people offering them! Choose carefully.

Also why not consider Joint Ventures? There are loads of non-competing businesses, who would like to do so. Even Combyne Group do Joint Ventures.

Or how about adding an income stream by selling new services or products to your database of clients? Please do ask, since we have a scheme, which will do exactly that.

Or create a Plan B as an extra income stream over and above your salary, where you have not seen a pay rise in three years? Here is an example of one that works – please click here It is an award winning business, with full training and support, and five hours a week will be a great starting point. And it can be offered to existing customers too.

Your present customers and contacts already ….. Know, Like and Trust You, so why go through the hassle of finding new customers, when you already have them?

Many experts talk about re-inventing yourself and your business as a marketing ploy – you do not have to go that far, certainly freshen up your image, and keep your website (& blogs) updated, use all the tools to hand including twitter and other social media, plus regularly produce a newsletter, both as a thank you for customers and as a way of opening up new dialogue.

And even better, why not ask your customers, what they want to buy, and then source it for them? A simple survey via say surveymonkey will do the trick.

Both Jonathan Jay and Robert Craven promote this as a profitable way forward. What have you got to lose by trying this out at minimal risk?

Of course your systems are in place already to ensure you can handle the extra business. They are, aren’t they? If not, please address this issue, which is often the real cause of failure before progressing. Combyne Group provides UK based call handling solutions on a part time, some time or full time basis.

So here are a few ideas to help you grow your business, and I am happy to chew over others as and when.
