Complementary Businesses – Do They Exist?

Complementary Businesses – Do They Exist?



Why should I even be contemplating discussing this subject line?

Well actually the reasons just happen to be many… and varied & here’s WHY!!!



  1. One of the first rules… or “Commandments”… of online business building is not to dabble your toes into too many business opportunities which come your way when you are first getting started…                                                                                                                                                                                                                        … these business opportunities are money and time wasters… aimed at the inexperienced or “newbie” online business builder and are known in the industry as “shiney objects”. The temptation to pick them up is to be avoided at all costs (both… financially and of time)
  2. That said, there are occasions when a business opportunity comes along which… just feels right. On these rare occasions it pays to take take a step back… take a deep breath…and start some research into the business opportunity.                                                                                                                                                       Find out as much as you can about the offer… especially find out about the people in the background who are promoting the business. No… not the people promoting the deal to you... the people who are the principal “Team Leaders” in the “up-line”.                                                                                                                                        Do your… Due Diligence on the business, its foundation and the people running the show. Better still, if you know someone you can trust who has already become involved… or if you can contact one of the Team Leaders or trust them because of their reputation in the industry… make contact for a positive recommendation.
  3. If… and only if… you are satisfied with what you see following your preliminary investigations, take the initial step to get the “low down” on what is on offer.               If you are building a home business already… one of the most important initial considerations is… compatibility between your existing business and the proposed new business…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        i.e… do they complement each other? If they do then life will be easier if you can use similar strategies in the promotion of both your businesses.
  4. Look for legitimate businesses… with legitimate… industry recognised Team Leader involvement… which have tried and tested… robust business building systems built into them
  5. Oh!… and make sure the system has all of the Marketing Training/Education Modules included as part of the “Back Office” deal… the last thing you need is finding out that you need to shell out $thousands$ on additional training before you can even get started.

All of this seems pretty obvious to those of us who have done the hard yards and learned by experience… i.e. “the hard way”.

However, having “been there/done that”… retrospectively it’s easy to see how it all happens and if I can save someone the heartache with this blog, then… “job done”!

Like you, I get home business offers and marketing software deals across my desk on a daily basis… many of which on the surface look great… but I don’t even look at them… Why?… because I don’t need to any more.

You see… I have two home/online businesses which I have put through the ringer of due diligence … both are very legitimate and are completely complimentary to one another.

Both have respected top (6 & 7 $figure earner) industry entrepreneurs as Team Leaders/Business Associates acting as Mentors within each of the businesses.

They have full involvement in the Education and Training side and are also involved in the development of the respective unique business development systems which are incredibly well produced… offering all of the educational and business development/system tools needed to successfully market a home business.

Am I going to introduce them to you?… well yes I am… but not in detail. If you are really interested you should follow the links provided below.

Am I going to recommend them to you as such?… well… yes I am and here’s why…

One business generates an recurring sustainable income from e-commerce based upon the shopping habits of customer members who generate genuine cash-back on everything they buy online. One of the many nice touches is that these customer members can shop online at many of their favourite stores that they would shop at in any case.

My other business is in the niche market of gold bullion acquisition as a means of hedging my earnings against the deflation of currency (o.e. the $$$) by exchanging dollars for gold bullion… not in huge unaffordable amounts… but by affordable 1 gram bullion at a time.

This second business allows me to convert the (decreasing value $$$$’s) profits I make from my first business into Gold Bullion (increasing value real currency) gold bullion in a way that also generates a sustainable income for me.

My first businesses is in the viral niche of e-commerce/online shopping as a Business Associate Team Leader with DubLi Inc.

My second business is in the niche of Gold Bullion Acquisition with Gold Bullion Dealers… Karatbars.

Karatbars smelters its own gold and is based in Germany.

When you create an account with Karatbars you are given the option to be a business affiliate or just a customer.

Choose affiliate if you are interested in the rewards and income opportunity. Affiliates are customers too with no extra costs or obligations. The Karatbars generous binary-like pay plan pays unlimited levels down and is based on units and cycles.

Things I Like the most about Karatbars

  • There are no purchase requirements.
  • You can sign up for FREE and still earn commissions.
  • No capital investments required.
  • No sponsorship requirements.
  • Gold is a time proven, hard asset which retains its value.
  • Must have a sponsor to register.
  • The gold and debit card are connected to same account.
  • Paid every Friday (hassle free) to a debit card
  • Located in Germany where they have the most strict business laws in the world.
  • Paid unlimited “levels” down. ( Get help from unlimited “levels” up. )
  • The 12 week plan gives affiliates something to shoot for but not required.

The intention here is to demonstrate that there are online/home business opportunities which do complement each other and at the same time both provide a lucrative income for you and your family … going well into the future.

The take home message is… don’t be afraid to diversify your online business… just do your due diligence homework before committing yourself and…

… let the business systems do the work!!!

Confused About Marketing On Facebook – Try This Advice Today

The reason I have this banner at the start of this article is … well … very obvious to those who want to immediately cut to the chase with Facebook marketing.

What strategies lie within will assist you to hit your Facebook advertising success … right out of the park!!!

For everyone else … if you are …

Confused About Marketing On Facebook – Try This Advice Today

Have you been told that Facebook marketing is a must for your business to survive? If you’re a bit confused here, no worries. This article will break down all there is to know about Facebook marketing.

Facilitate regular interaction with your followers so you understand their needs and interests. Make sure you notice when people make posts on your page. Many businessmen that are successful have received great marketing ideas that work from the general public. When someone posts on your page, make sure to respond to them.

Coming up with a giveaway is a wonderful idea to help your Facebook marketing campaign. Encourage new subscribers by offering free products. Let people know who won by announcing it on your profile, and use this strategy again if you wish to get additional subscribers later on.

Create a custom tab for your Facebook page. You can use custom tabs as a welcome locale for all of your new Facebook visitors. It’s a great place to promote your current offerings, products, and services. Plus, it’ll give a little personality to your Facebook page which is always a plus.

Make a group rather than a page. A group allows everyone to interact and feel like they know one another. You could also use a group and a page to get maximum benefits from Facebook marketing.

Create a contest on your Facebook page that only fans of your page can participate in. This will make them excited to come to your page. They may even tell family, friends, or co-workers, meaning you will have more visitors coming to your page. Of course, more visitors means more business!

When you utilize Facebook Offers, you are able to promote freebies and contests you’re running on your site. Set up your offer and switch it to Promoted Post via your Wall. If the offer is extra special, you can promote it to people that aren’t fans as well.

Offer something in exchange for signing up on your Facebook page. Having visitors register on your page lets you engage them in ongoing dialogue about your business. Offering them something, such as an entry in a sweepstakes, makes them more likely to register on your page and provide your business with valuable leads.

Creating content for Facebook can be tedious and frustrating. If you have a Facebook business page, you need to post new content every single day to engage your audience. Can you afford this type of time commitment? If not, use targeted ads instead to bring your message to your target audience.

Try using Facebook ads. Paid ads via Facebook can help your business because they let you target your audience in various ways. You are able to specify the gender, age group, location, and more of your audience. You can be as narrow or broad as you like when specifying their needs. Set campaign budgets and bid prices to test as many headlines, images, and ad copy as you like. If your campaign doesn’t work, you can stop it right away so that you don’t overspend on it.

Use photos in every Facebook update that you do. People love looking at photos on Facebook. The more visual a post is, the better chance it has of actually becoming a bit viral. So don’t let any opportunity to get visual pass you by, even if your trying to get a post out quickly. Take the time to make it visually great.

With all of these tips, you now are ready to tackle some Facebook marketing. Go to your Facebook account now and begin using the valuable tips you have learned. The sooner you use Facebook, the sooner you can attract customers.

So, get started right now!

How To Make The Best Poached Eggs – The Easy Way!

How To Make The Best Poached Eggs – The Easy Way!

Video Marketing Tips

Sorry about the wind gusts in the video, that’s just one of the charms of living in Wellington NZ.

Video marketing tips can be found easily just browsing the internet or just as easily by looking on YouTube. My video offers a few quick tips to help those who are new to home business marketing and in particular to video marketing.

  • The first thing to master is familiarity with your equipment and with being in front of the camera … R…E…L…A…X … think of the camera s a friend or having a chat with your Mom.
  • Get used to handling your “selfie stick” and switching your camera on/off. A remote on/off switch you will find is a great asset. They link via blue tooth to your smart phone.
  • Don’t try to be a perfectionist, you’ll never achieve it. So don’t worry if you stuff up your lines or stumble in a pothole, you’re only human and your audience is more likely to listen to you and watch you if you can show your human side … smile & laugh now and again.
  • If you are shooting your video outside you will encounter other people sometimes and you are victim to the elements (like the wind in the video here) don’t worry about that too much as long as the message comes across in the end (Wellington NZ by the way is considered to be one of the windiest cities in the world so if I worried about the wind I would never shoot a video outside … hopefully the looking at the back-drop scenery overrides the annoyance of the wind)
  • Avoid scripts whenever possible, they are an obvious distraction to the viewer … by all means write a script and try to memorise most of it … not perfectly … just know your subject and it’ll come across well


The most efficient and effective way to get video marketing tips is to surround yourself with online business entrepreneurs who have developed and are using a business system themselves which includes video marketing tools and who have experience in video marketing.
