What is Leverage?

Leverage is explained by webster in 2 ways which is the following

Leverage (noun) 

 as 1 : the action of a lever or the mechanical advantage gained by it 2 : power , effectiveness <trying to gain more political leverage> 3 : the use of credit to enhance one’s speculative capacity

Leverage

Main Entry:
2leverage
Function:
transitive verb
Inflected Form(s):
leveraged; leverag·ing
Date:
1957

1: to provide (as a corporation) or supplement (as money) with leverage ; also : to enhance as if by supplying with financial leverage2: to use for gain : exploit <shamelessly leverage the system to their advantage — Alexander Wolff>

Realistically if you put it all together you combine any numerous amounts of techniques, tactics, to get what you want. Hunh?

Ok let me put another way for you by actually addding a short list of things of which you can leverage but not limited to following list:

True and Real Assets

Time

Money

Contacts

Mailing List

Products  (Ebooks, Audio Ebooks, Videos Either on DVD or Downloadable online, Software)

Services (In Exchange for something else of equal or more value)

Content

Knowledge and Skills

Marketing Ability

Salesmanship

Alright I think that give you some kind of idea of what leverage is and how you can maximize your ability to achieve what you want, if you cannot do something find someone willing to partner with you and leverage each others ability to get things done.

Now choose someone where he fills in your weaknesses and you are able to fill his, that way you both are able to correct each other’s weakness through leverage, this will allow for you both to be a better structured and successful partnership.

If you have a group whereby you all lack the same abilities, find someone to help eliminate that gap of that group and you will see that your group will become so powerful through the art of Leverage.

So many people miss out on the real efforts and strength of what leverage can do for you both personally and business and as well as financially, friendships, etc.

All of it can deliver so much value to you and your goals, missions, plans.

This will be touched upon a little bit later on and should not be thought of as not valuable, because it will show you that you are not really using your head. Why do I say that here?

Think about all of the successful people who has come before us and are currently popping up all over the place, do you think that success just falls into their lap, no it doesn’t and if you believe that they are lucky, yes they maybe but not completely.

They used a variety of connections to the above list and helped them Leverage their past failures and turned them into successful leveraged leaders. Remember no matter who you are and what you do, even if you do not believe me, you are using leverage.

Do you use a alarm clock in the morning, tooth brush and tooth paste, fork to eat your food, keys to lock your door at night, I do believe I have given you a few examples here.

That’s how powerful Leverage is and how it can help you really achieve success.

Start thinking of ways of using the above list to start t achieve your desired lifestyle and take it from me, you will be hearing about how I am applying this strategy to both my personal and business lifestyles as well.

I have always loved this word but never really took that massive action that helps this really come alive for me until last year and now I am taking massive action and will unleash the power of leverage.

All the best,

Why Compete with Other Resellers in the Marketplace?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007


How can you compete with other resellers who are selling the exact same product for the exact same price to the exact same market? It’s actually easier than you might think!

First, remember that 90% of all people who hold the same resell rights license that you hold either won’t market the product at all, or won’t market it correctly. This essentially means that only 10% of those who have resell rights to the same product are in competition with you. However, it really doesn’t matter how competitive the market is or how many other resellers there are for the same product. When it is all said and done, the only thing that really counts is how the product is marketed – how it is presented to the market.

The first thing you must do is set yourself apart from the pack. Don’t concern yourself with what others are doing. Do your own thing. Do what works. Start by making the product as different as your license will allow you to. Change the package to include bonuses that others are not offering. Also change the sales letter. Make it completely different, and more effective than it already is.

Once you’ve changed the product and the package as much as you are allowed to, it is time to see what others are doing, to an extent. For instance, if you plan to market using Google AdWords, see what keywords your competitors (other resellers) are bidding on, and what they are paying. Either pay more, or bid on different, more targeted keywords.

For example, if you are selling an information product on weight loss, don’t use weight loss as your keyword, or any other common key words. Instead, use weight loss for men, or weight loss for women over 40. Narrow your market as much as you possibly can. You can bet that the majority of your competitors will not be using such care in choosing keywords!

Also use other methods of marketing the product. You need to Market to your own email list. Market to other people’s email lists. Write articles and distribute them to the article banks. Hold Tele-seminars. The important thing is to establish yourself as an expert in the field that is related to your product, and set yourself apart.
