The Power of Resilience in Business

By JIFU Success No Comments

Building metaphorical strength can be the difference between failure and success, whether personally or in the context of business. This metaphorical strength is sometimes called resilience. 

Resilience is defined by psychologists as the “process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress.” In business, this means that your company can adjust to difficult situations, whether that be because of the job market or a dip in the economy, without losing critical functionality. 

The business market is more unpredictable than ever before, and prioritizing resilience is unprecedentedly important. An obvious example of this can be seen in the current pandemic that threatens even the most stable of businesses. The companies that have been able to pull through and even thrive are the ones that have been flexible. 

Any national or international crisis that disrupts extended global supply chains or contributes to the breakdown of economic activity can spell disaster, especially for small startups. However, building resiliency can be difficult because the leadership has to forgo a certain amount of short-term productivity for long-term adaptability. Identifying threats and potential risks that do not yet exist is another obstacle to overcome. 

The Harvard Business Review’s “six principles of long-lasting systems”:

1. Redundancy
2. Diversity
3. Modularity
4. Adaptability
5. Prudence
6. Embeddedness

It is nearly impossible to measure or check resilience. The majority of companies already engage in risk management, but even the most comprehensive risk management systems often only tackle “specific and known risks.” 

The concept can seem abstract at first glance, but think about companies whose business strategies have paid off. Some examples include Eric Kiariwala’s Capsule or the extremely successful Uber. Both of these companies saw a profit in 2020 despite all the challenges that were thrown at them.

Let us know which of these tips you plan on acting on in 2021 in the comments below!

How to Design a Proper Workplace

By JIFU Success One Comment

Despite all of the challenges that 2020 brought, businesses have learned how valuable it is to be flexible and be able to pivot quickly. A huge part of this is employees having to work outside the office in their homes. Individuals and companies alike have discovered that productivity can remain high even outside the office.  While this may be a different experience for some people, affiliate marketers have been doing remote work for years. As an affiliate marketing company, JIFU wants to share how to make your home office into the ideal workspace. 

Equipment 

It is important to make sure that you have the equipment necessary to successfully work at home. A perk of working for a company in their office space is that they usually supply all the things you will need, but that is not always the case when it comes to remote office work. Be sure to get a comfortable chair so that you can comfortably work on projects without injuring your body.

Often overlooked is a great Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Find a mouse and keyboard that is compatible with your work style and will be pleasant to work with for hours at a time. With Zoom and web chat meetings becoming the norm it is important to consider your webcam quality and decide if it would be worth it to invest in a good external chat camera. Additionally, good internet connection is one of the most valuable things a remote worker can have. Decide what company could offer you the best connection and consider upgrading to fiber optics if possible. 

Design 

Another valuable thing to consider when setting up an at-home work space is the design of the space. People are more impacted by their surroundings than they like to admit, so it is important to think about the aesthetics of your office space. If possible, put your desk near an area that has lots of natural light. This can also increase your quality of light when it comes to digital meetings and chats. 

Be sure that you are not backlit in your video chats, and situating your desk in front of a window is a great way to do this. If it is not possible, strategically position lamps and light fixtures for premium viewability. A popular way to liven a room up is adding plants and greenery to the space. 

Efficiency 

Here are some additional tips to increase your at-home efficiency. Maintaining a clean and tidy workplace is important, even if no other people are going to see it. Another great tip is to keep your work and living areas as separate as you can. Even if these areas overlap, it is important to have a section of your house solely devoted to your work.

 With this comes maintaining office hours. Not only with this help the other people you work with know when they can reach you, but it will help your brain remain focused for a scheduled amount of time. A benefit that comes with working from home is that you can dress more casually than you would in an office setting. However, it is still good to get dressed in the morning to set the expectation for yourself throughout the day.

New Year- New You?

By JIFU Success No Comments

It’s the same old trope, the one that has come out of nearly everyone’s mouth at some point. While the beginning of a new calendar year can be a great opportunity to reset and refocus, it’s important to realize that nothing will change if you don’t try. If you actually want to make a tangible change in your life, use these helpful tips to actualize your goals in the new year.

Flexibility is Important

Remember when you set goals in the beginning of january that your circumstances throughout the year may change, which could lead to a change in your overall goal. Being kind to yourself and allowing for your objective to change as time moves forward is a very valuable tool. However, it is important to make sure that you are being truthful with yourself about how things might have changed, and adjust accordingly. 

Build on Past Positivity

Think about some things that you like about yourself, or something that you already do that you would like to expand on. For example, if you already exercise two days a week, that’s a great start! Don’t disparage the work that you have already done, just expand on it. Set a goal of increasing your workouts to three or four days a week. The “new” you can only exist if you take some of your positive actions and traits into the new year with you. 

Take Accountability

Holding yourself accountable is possibly one of the most valuable things you can do. Being truthful with yourself about what you are doing (or not doing) to achieve your goals is vastly important. If you feel yourself start to slip, it’s okay, just evaluate the situation. Why are you struggling? What is holding you back from doing the best you can? Is this goal important to me any more? Why or why not? Becoming comfortable with being honest with yourself will help you become more efficient. 

Be Realistic 

Another great thing to keep in mind is to make realistic goals for your “new” self. Don’t choose something that is completely out of reach or unattainable. Dream big, but make sure that you are not setting yourself up for failure. Work towards your big goal by setting your yearly goal up in a way that will put you in a position to achieve the ultimate dream. Consider things like what you have time for and how much work you are willing to put into making yourself a better person.

Visualize Your Success

By JIFU Success, Personal Development No Comments

Believing in your own success is the most important, but often overlooked, part of actually achieving your goals. Visualization is the very beginning of creation. Whatever it is that you want to create in your life, the wholehearted belief that you will make it happen is a valuable tool in your pursuit of success.These are some of the most helpful tips to help you get on your way to mastering the skill of visualization from Wired For Greatness

“Visualization naturally has to do with the mind and requires the use of both imagination and cognitive processes working together in unison.”

Wired for Greatness

Flex your creativity by using your imagination to create images that encapsulate the best version of your future. Ensure that these images aren’t static and that you incorporate a shifting perspective into your visualization. 

While creativity is an integral part of this process, you must not forget to use the logical part of your mind. Picture that you are actually experiencing the environment in the future that you so desperately desire. This includes everything from sight to smell and feel. This may seem silly, but realize that these small details are what memories are made up of, so it makes sense to add them into your visualization practice. 

With visualization, you are working to make your future a reality. The more you can visualize the future you desire, the more likely you are to create this future for yourself and others around you. 

Listed below are the steps to creating a visualization success story. Download the JIFU2.0 app for more details on how to perfect each step in the process.

Now Step Back

Visualization is a sort of meditative thought practice that sets an intention. It also comes with several positive side effects, one being that you can experience less stress. Just having a clear vision and steps to take will erase much of the worry out of your life. You become more open to changes and different opportunities. 

Additionally, you will be able to focus better because you have a set list of intentional goals to direct your energy towards. In this way, you will become more confident in your everyday life. Feeling inspired to work towards a goal will give your days more meaning and intention. Instead of haphazardly blundering through life, you will have a particular future that each of your actions are meant to make happen. 

These are only a few small steps that can help you get to where you want to be in life, whether that be a personal or professional goal. Visualization is a valuable tool in any aspiring entrepreneur’s toolbelt. Envision your success and make it happen!

Personal Branding in Affiliate Marketing

By JIFU Success, JIFUlife, Personal Development No Comments

As network marketers, we strive every day to share quality products and services that offer outstanding value to our customers and members. JIFU affiliates are the lifeblood of our company, and a massive part of what makes our business model so special.

The individuals who we work with know how to not only market JIFU’s services, but are skilled in marketing themselves. There are five basic reasons why it is vastly important to build a successful personal brand in network marketing. These are helpful tips for someone who is just getting into affiliate marketing and they are great reminders for seasoned veterans. 

1.Credibility

When you establish yourself using your social media platforms, a website, or in person, you are able simultaneously establish yourself as reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable about the company you are representing.

Part of this is making sure you know answers to potential questions that clients or buyers may have, as well as having a good understanding of the company you are partnering with. It is also important to have a good rapport with corporate management, so as to become more aware of the company culture. 

2. Uniqueness

While it is important to represent the partner company accurately and correctly, it is as equally as important to add in your own unique marketing flavor. You are probably not the only affiliate that is trying to sell the products and services, so making yourself stand out is imperative. 

Oftentimes, loyal customers come back time and time again not only because of the products, but because of the connection they feel with the salesman/affiliate. Being able to achieve a perfect balance between the company’s brand and your own personal brand is where you will find immense success. For example, JIFU offers brand assets for our affiliate partners to use on their social medias, but it is up to the affiliates themselves to use those tools in a way that will make them stand out from the masses. 

3. Become a Leader 

As an affiliate marketer, you understand the value of selling products, but it is valuable to “sell” yourself as well. Build your personal brand on the foundation of leadership and knowledge, and you will establish an environment where buyers and members feel comfortable asking you questions. This will lead to a more committed customer base. 

Some things to consider when you are building your personal brand include consistency, professionalism, and coordination. These things will help you construct your online presence in a manner that sets you apart from less dedicated and experienced affiliates. 

4. Know your Audience 

Be aware that your personal brand attributes to who your audience is, so it is important that you are consciously working towards a specific audience. Despite that you are not the only affiliate, you are the only YOU, so use that to your advantage. Different affiliates can attract vastly different audiences, so don’t get lulled into a false sense of boredom. 

5. Strive to Reach a Goal 

We have talked about setting and achieving goals before, but a massive part of that is allowing your personal brand to set you up for success. Each affiliate has their own personal goals when it comes to their business, so you need to evaluate your plan based on what you hope to achieve. 

You may want to become a top earner who makes more money than any affiliate before them. In which case, you would want to set aside a lot of time to speak with professionals, work with your team, and take your position in the business world very seriously. On the other hand, you may want to earn some extra income on the side, but affiliate marketing is not your main priority. In this scenario, you may not become comparatively successful, but your workload would decrease significantly. 

These are only five of the best tips that we have to offer when it comes to establishing and creating a personal brand. There are many more ways to do this, and JIFU.com offers the tools you need to become successful. Check out the website if you are interested in learning more about our affiliate program!

Prioritizing Your Motivation: How Get The Most Out Of Your Business

By JIFU Success, Personal Development 18 Comments

Think back to a time when you were excited about an idea that you had. Do you remember the incredible feeling of excitement and all the ideas that ran through your mind? You could probably hardly wait to start working on making your new idea a reality.

 

That memorable feeling is called motivation and is one of the most important factors in success. Wired for Greatness(WFG) is an e-book written by JIFU’s co-founder Jeffery Boyle, where he details some of his secrets to success and offers valuable tips for self improvement. WFG Module 5 is about harnessing and sustaining the power of momentum and motivation. Here, we want to share some of the most important tips offered by Jeffery, though the book goes much further in depth. Download our new app (JIFU2.0) to read the full e-book and satisfy your desire to learn, grow, and succeed! 

Three Types of Momentum 

Maintaining motivation is all about how to keep your positive momentum active. The three most important types of momentum are momentum of thought, momentum of action, and momentum in a relationship.An active thought process naturally leads into action, which is often the most difficult to maintain momentum with. Momentum in a relationship is important because success often hinges professional connections. 

“Without the momentum of thought, we tend not to make goals at all. We entertain ideas instead.”-Jeffery Boyle, WFG

Active Tips 

Everyone feels stress, but managing anxiety will often help your productivity level. Another great tip is to recognize your time-wasting behavior so that you can stop procrastinating. Video games, apps, Facebook and other social media have been proven to deliver a little jolt of endorphins the more you indulge. However, the little jolt is not sustainable, nor does contribute to your personal momentum. 

Four Step Back-in-Action Guide(Download the JIFU2.0 app to learn more)

  1. Recognize the problem
  2. Take a Step Back 
  3. Reconsider 
  4. Build a Road Map

Your Body and Mind are Connected 

The connection between your physical and mental self is not groundbreaking knowledge, but acting on this knowledge is key. For example, sleep is vital to maintaining momentum and motivation. 7-9 hours of sleep is ideal, but the power of a nap is not to be underestimated. Similarly, exercise contributes massively to your ability to be productive later. If you combine exercise with learning new things, you’ll retain the information better so you can use it later”-Jeffery Boyle, WFG

These are only a few of the many pieces of advice offered by the Wired For Greatness e-book series. At JIFU, we want you to be able to reach your full potential by strengthening your body, mind, and business. Personal development is a key part of our amplified business strategies!

Understanding Influencer Marketing

By Financial Success, JIFU Success, JIFUshop 26 Comments

Marketing has come a long way since the days of “Mad Men” and the marketing giants of the ‘50’s, but some still don’t understand the extent to which marketing has completely changed into an industry that is almost unrecognizable. 

The advancement of technology has created entire industries and careers that did not exist 20 years ago. One massive example of this phenomenon is what is known as influencer marketing, and its existence has changed the way that companies sell products forever.

If you haven’t heard of influencer marketing, chances are you have seen it in action, but just weren’t aware that it had a name. Essentially, it is a digital marketing strategy that consists of achieving a series of collaborative connections between companies and those people with high visibility and prominence on the internet. These people are known as ‘influencers.’ 

JIFU and countless other companies pay individuals to use the power of an influencer’s online presence to help sell experiences and products.

Social networks were created to connect people and groups to each other, regardless of location. This is clearly a beneficial system for brands to use to their advantage, and often they will pay influencers very well to do just this. 

Online influencers are followed by a target audience that are often very consumerist and whose opinions are easily impacted by the influencer. The brand is able to advertise to a more direct audience and increase their own online presence. 

In order to become an influencer, someone must have an open mind, perseverance, and dedication. Aside from these characteristics, it’s also important to master the leading social networks and create beautiful content to elevate them within their niche.  

Often, brands will pay more to influencers who have more interaction. Someone may have a lot of followers, but if they have low engagement, they could be paid less than someone who has less followers on social media than them.

For example, Christiano Ronaldo has 240 million followers on instagram and a reported engagement of 2.22%. This means that 5,328,000 people engage on average with each post he makes, which is a decent interaction ratio. 

However, nano-influencers (1,000-10,000 followers) can make a reasonable amount of money as well, as long as they have consistently good engagement. Micro-influencers(10,000-50,000 followers) generally make $100–$500 per post, again depending on several factors. 

So how much do they make? It all depends on the brand, the influencer, and the platform. However, no matter your reach or your niche, there is money to be had. The influencer marketing industry is on track to be worth up to $15 billion by 2022 according to Business Insider.
