Achieve a True Diversification With Self Directed IRA

What do you get from self-directed IRA account?

The ultimate advantage of setting up a self-directed IRA account with an IRA custodian is that you are the one who is in control.

The other best attribute you are getting with the said type of IRA is that you get the flexibility you can ever wish.
If you are targeting investments that are beyond the confines of Wall Street, then self-directed IRA is the right one for you. It is said that the average balance in any IRA is more or less $25,000! And so that is enough funds for you to diversify your investments to get to the retirement that you are planning for! Retirement does not have to be achieved at an old age. You can retire soon if you pan for it!

DIVERSIFICATION

With self-directed IRA, you can directly invest your money in real estates. If you are leaning towards acquiring houses or an apartment complex for a continued cash flow, then this type of IRA can help you start that venture. Specifically, if a friend of yours mentioned to you a house down the corner being sold for half its price… or a short term loan at 15% from a credit institution, only with this IRA that you could do this.

You maybe into small businesses or getting a franchise and just the right amount of money is in your IRA but the only way to get to that is by having a self-directed IRA. Your traditional IRA will restrict you from doing that.

Personal loans is something you can take advantage also with this kind of IRA. Begging your fund manager for the money you own and saved would not occur if you have a self-directed IRA.

If there is an investment that will make sense to you at all, with self-directed IRA, money is readily at hand just by writing a check for it.

Purchasing of tax liens could also be done only with self-directed and not the typical IRA. It offers low risk on the investor’s side, the length of investment is often short-termed and the return is substantial unlike what the current market offers.

FINALLY, the precious metals that you can either hold or store in a depository. Only with this unique IRA that you can have a gold IRA or silver IRA started. Gold is expected to rise further its value to a staggering $5000 per ounce. And silver, with the stockpile at a very low mark, can match the price of gold. This precious metals BOOM is happening soon and may not last for long.
From an investment that will give you cash flow to a stable asset even in the middle of a weak economy, the self-directed IRA can give you so much flexibility! Your options are not limited to bonds, stocks and mutual funds! There are just investments nowadays that make more sense than the paper ones.

The 3 Elements Of A Solid Direct Mail Campaign

Are you looking to add direct mail to your marketing mix. If you’re an offline business owner, direct mail is almost a prerequisite if you want to expand your customer base and get fresh new people onto your customer list. In my opinion, the thorniest part of the direct mail process is buying postage.

If you’re on a budget, this can severely limit how many packages you can send out at a time. But despite the mailing costs, there are other factors also that play a part in your direct mail campaign. This includes your list, your offer, and your sales letter. All 3 of these elements have to be in-line with each other if you want to get the maximum effect from your campaign.

So for starters, how do you go and acquire a mailing list to mail to? Well, you start at your local library with the SRDS. The SRDS stands for the standard rate and data service, and it contains a wide variety of lists to mail to. This is where you’ll want to begin your search.

Never make the mistake of mailing letters randomly to people in your neighborhood. This is ineffective, and you will hardly get any response. Instead, go and rent out a niche specific list in the SRDS, so that you will have a higher chance of making money with your campaign.

The next thing to consider is your offer. Is your offer unique? Is it something that can’t be acquired somewhere else? What makes your offer unique?!? Well, a unique offer can come in a variety of forms. The uniqueness of your offer could be a 12-month money back guarantee. It could be overnight shipping. Or it could be simply that nobody has access to the product that you’re selling. In short, no one has the product that you’re selling.

If the latter part from the above is true, then you’re in a competition free zone. You could offer your products day-in and day-out, and make a hefty profit. So think about these things before you start mailing out letters.

The last thing to consider is your sales message/sales letter. Even though you’re not a world-class copywriter, there are many sales letter templates out there that you can follow and emulate right away. In fact, if you don’t know anything about writing sales letters that sell, I suggest you start with a swipe file.

A swipe file is a collection of winning ads and sales letters. It’s called a “swipe” file because you can emulate the successful parts of a sales letter and put them all together in a format that would make the copywriting task easier. There are many free swipe files on the internet. In fact you can download something called the “Magnetic Sales Letters” package for free – and it contains a lot of different winning sales letters and headline for you to choose from (hope that makes sense lol…).

So as you can see, all 3 aspects of your direct mail campaign has to be put together in order to achieve a cumulative goal. And if you can do that with your direct mail campaign, you’ll stand to have success with the mailings.

Good luck with marketing your business with direct mail today.

Network Marketing Success: Find Your Inner Voice

Are you struggling to achieve success in network marketing but it seems some days you just can’t get into motion? Have you had people, maybe a mentor or upline leader, tell you, “Just face your fear and so it anyway” Do you wander where your fears come from? Do you ask yourself, “Why am I here?” Do you wander what’s holding you back? Are you looking for your “inner voice” to guide you and point the direction?

Most of us struggle with trying to understand our real purpose in life. Many of us drift daily through whatever life throws at us and rarely, if ever, seek to understand the deeper meanings of why we are here. We have a vague notion there must be something more but what is it?

Have you ever tried to connect with infinite intelligence and then gotten confused as to whether your thoughts are coming from source energy or from your own mind?
If we could connect with source energy and establish clear direction and purpose for our lives, we would be off to the races with enthusiasm, purpose and infinite energy. We couldn’t help but succeed in anything we tried to do.

I want to introduce you to a book that I just finished reading. It’s Russ Whitney’s book and it’s titled, “Your Inner Voice, Unlock Your Purpose and Passion.” It’s all about getting in touch with who we are, and what we’re supposed to do with our life. It teaches us how to get in touch with our inner voice so that we can receive guidance and direction from the universe. Russ teaches us how to handle difficult situations, and difficult people in our life.

The book focuses on how to live a life full of joy, peace, and harmony. It’s a really powerful book. One of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a page-turner. I got my copy on Saturday and couldn’t put it down until I finished it on Sunday.

I highly recommend the book. It’s not very long, about 100 pages. It’s got some exercises in it for you to do to help you identify areas of your life that are holding you back, and what you can do to move through those areas of your life, and become more productive, get more in touch with your inner voice, understand what you’re supposed to be doing with your life, what your purpose is, what your passion is, and to live life on your terms. If you can find your inner voice and tap into source energy, you will find more success in everything you do in life and especially find your network marketing success. Now go find your inner voice and listen to it.
