You may have heard of the phrase “pay it forward” and not really understood what it meant before. If you have understood the concept, then you may not have put it into practice yet, or realized how it can relate to your home business opportunity online.
To “pay it forward” means that when you have been the recipient of an act of kindness, then you repay this act of kindness to others, which can start a whole chain reaction of random acts of kindness, leading to a whole transformation of spirit.
You may ask what this has to do with your home business opportunity online, but believe me, it has everything to do with it!
The concept and its effect is much like viral marketing when you own a home business opportunity online, where everyone gets involved and is affected in some way that can wind up being something huge.
I was recently reminded of the concept of “pay it forward” after having a foot surgery that has left me in crutches for most of this month. For one thing, I have a new and stronger feeling of empathy for those who are disabled, and less fortunate than myself. This makes me feel blessed for my health and soon-to-be two happy runner’s feet.
In return for these spiritual thoughts of late, I have received many acts of sympathy and kindness from those I know, people I have seen but have never talked to before, and also from total strangers on the street. These kindnesses will never be forgotten.
That’s where your home business opportunity online comes in, and why paying it forward has everything to do with your online business success. If you still don’t get what I mean, then think about how you feel when someone does something great for you with no expectation of anything in return.
A home business opportunity online is all about relationships – Relationships with people you know, and relationships with total strangers, prospects, clients, potential customers. The way you treat your customers has everything to do with what you get in return.
So what are some ways you can “pay it forward” with your home business opportunity online and treat your prospects and customers extra special so that they turn around and do the same for a few, if not many, other people to build a giant network of people helping people?
One way to pay it forward is to offer a mentoring service for your home business opportunity online. If you expect people to sign up for your programs and pay money to join, then you better be there to teach, guide, and offer continual, lifetime, and free support.
Forums, blog posts, articles, and emails are a great way to keep in touch with and assist your downline and prospects in your home business opportunity online.
It’s also a good idea with a home business opportunity online to give gifts on a regular basis as though your customers are gold. I don’t mean just the regular freebie downloadable e-books, but consider giving cash every once in a while to those who are struggling, or those who have helped sustain your business.
A small gift like this can go a very long way, and show how much you appreciate others, especially when it is totally self-less, random, and unexpected.
Another option of paying it forward in your home business opportunity online is by helping others by giving them some free public recognition to help boost their sales.
You could feature a customer’s name and product or service in a high-traffic forum, blog post, or article, spreading their links around in ways they can’t do themselves. You could also offer to rotate their links on your high traffic site.
The best ways to do business with your home business opportunity online are ways that are totally self-less, where you have the chance to do something good and heart-felt for someone less fortunate than yourself. Your act of kindness will not be forgotten, so don’t forget the power of paying it forward!
