Outdoor Billboard Advertising works for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. It reaches out to millions of motorist across America selling service and products for thousands of products and businesses every day. Many of us rely on outdoor advertising to find services and places of business along America’s highways.The outdoor adverting business in America is over 100 years old and since it’s early beginning it has increased in advertising sales and revenue ever since. It has been the center of focus by marketers ever since they discovered its effectiveness with passing motorist on the highways and byways of America, As the years past the advertisers became more and more creative and motorist began to rely more on the roadside billboard to tell them where to go and what to buy.

I painted and built highway billboards from the early 60’s to the late 80’s across America I got to see first had how effective outdoor advertising is. One of the companies I work for became a national chain it name was Stuckey’s. I have seen on many different occasions when one of their exit billboards or a primary billboard go down from a storm, the inside store sales would drop several hundred dollars even thousands of dollars a day immediately.

If the billboards was not painted regularly and maintained sales would slowly drop to nothing. When the billboards were freshly painted sales would immediately pop up!

My company was treated like the US Calvary when we came in to saved the day.

Can you imagine if painted billboard would increase sales that much… How much would a bright digital billboard would have done?

Have no doubt billboards are a very powerful media. The Digital billboards are todays answer to advertisers everywhere. One digital can replace 6 to 8 conventional billboards on one location. An advertiser no longer has to settle for one static ad he can have many different ads all in the same day. McDonald’s can advertise every product on the menu if they wish. Ford can sell every model of car or truck on the lot. Digital billboards are not just for large companies they allow small businesses to advertise as well. Mom and Dad’s restaurant down the road can now afford outdoor advertising.

I once told a billboard buyer I wanted to be able to sell advertising to everyone in the neighborhood including the guy under the bridge” I pointed to guy holding an “I Will Work for Food” sign. Well I didn’t sell the guy under the bridge but I did sell the billboard to the guy I was talking to, he got the point.

Today 46 plus years after I began, I still own a company that consults, builds, sells and buys billboard across America. From the bright lights of Times Square in New York City to bright light of Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. I spend a lot of time consulting and telling others how to build their own “Digital Cash Flow Machines” that is the nicknamed I gave my own line of digitals billboards.

The point is billboards this is a very lucrative business and a win, win for everyone from the property owner to the billboard owner and the advertiser. You don’t have to be a large company to get in on a very lucrative business capable of producing a 100% return on investment in 1 to 3 years. To do that you do have know what you are doing. I would suggest you hire a professional billboard consultant first, you’re going to need more than a text book to make this one happen.

Successful People Do This And So Can You!

Did you know that by applying a simple strategy you can become successful beyond your imagination?Success is not dedicated for a certain category of lucky talented people and hence anyone can become similar to those success gurus.
Success doesn’t depend on your environment, circumstances, level of education, financial situation,…etc.All successful people faced a lot of negative circumstances and failures before they achieve what they want. They were poor, with little or no education, and were brought up under tough circumstances.

But they all followed the same strategy, to change their circumstances and reach their dreams.
You must follow this simple strategy, if you want to achieve your goals and become successful.

Here is the ultimate success strategy:
Apply the Principles of Success… Simple, right?
Always remember: “The true power lies under the real simplicity”.
This powerful strategy guarantees your success because principles are the same and always work.
Success principles are the same no matter where you live or when you live.
Success principles always work because they are proven facts used by all successful people to achieve their goals.

Success leaves clues. And these clues are timeless success principles.
Principles will work for you as well but this depends on a single condition.
This condition is: “Principles always work if you work the principles”
You must apply these principles and put them in action.
Action makes all the difference.

Successful people believe in principles and so they persist until they see the results.
Apply success principles and they will always work. Since they worked with all who applied them, they will work with you too.
But remember you must work the principles yourself. Don’t wait for somebody else to apply the principles for you.You must apply the principles by yourself. Don’t wait for somebody to give you permission to become successful.

Analyze your situation and see how this principle can work for you. Do it yourself.
You must lead your life and never surrender. Keep practicing the principle until it works.

It takes time to master success principles. Like when you start driving your car, it took time to be a good driver.You need to practice until you get positive results. And here comes the benefit of having a mentor in your life. He can guide you through your journey and support you in every step. And, he can teach you these principles and how to master them.

Read success books and you will gain life time experience from the expert authors.
Attend success and personal development seminars and courses to get close to success mentors and learn from their experience. Success Principles always work if you work them. Keep practicing the principles until you master them.

You too can become successful with the same principles used by all successful people in the world.
Start living the life of your dreams. My friend you can make a difference. I believe in you.

Desire, Fuel for success: How to Keep it Alive and…

The Heart's Desire

The Heart’s Desire (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

What is it that makes one man go where others don’t dare tread? And that keeps him going even when the odds seem so insurmountable? When others around him expect the worst, and obstacle upon obstacle, cause him to wonder if perhaps, just perhaps, everybody might be right and he may be crazy?

That my friend is what is called DESIRE! Desire is one of the strongest emotions, and one of the greatest forces man has ever known. When harnessed properly it will give you everything you have ever wanted! Desire is the Fuel for success.
Just as a car or any other automobile needs fuel to keep going, a man’s desire is what drives him and will ultimately determine if he will hold that prize at the end of the race. The thing that determines why the one person does and the other doesn’t is not physical ability or the lack thereof, but desire and or the absence thereof.

It is said where there is a will there is a way, but what isn’t said is that the will doesn’t exist by itself and of itself. It is fuelled by desire. If you have lost your desire for whatever it is you want, you have lost the Race.

Desire doesn’t reason or justify. All it wants is satisfaction. It is not concerned with how you bring it about. Desire, like most things is not something you are born with. It is a force and power which can be induced through the senses such as sight, hearing and smell. Let me give you an example.

When you see a beautiful woman or man, it does something to you. It triggers a power or force that will either die a natural death, or will become a raging fire.

That depends on what you do with it from that point onwards. Now, I used the example of being attracted to either a man or a woman, but desire is not limited to that. You can desire a big house, a car or desire to travel the world. However this will not mean much, until you crystallize this desire into something tangible, something you can see, hear, smell or touch.

So, to induce desire for whatever it is you want, you have to introduce the object of your desire, to your senses. The more you see something, the stronger your desire for that thing will become.

Let’s take the example of a beautiful woman or man again. If he or she has made enough of an impression on you, you would want to see that person again, right? But if you leave it to chance you may or may not see him or her again. In the event you don’t, the feelings will likely die a natural death.

But let’s say, you see that person again and again, what do you think will happen? That’s right! The feelings you have will become stronger.

So what you need to do is to introduce the object of your desire to your senses, not once or twice but again and again and again.

If you can, physically touch and smell and experience the object of your desire. If you desire wealth, go to the places that are symbols of wealth and get the feeling of wealth.
This can be places like expensive restaurants or five-star hotels. If you can afford it, book a room or a suite, even if it’s just for one night.
If you don’t have a lot of cash just go there and book a table. Order a cup of coffee or something else which isn’t too expensive. I’m sure you get the picture. Do this over and over and you’ll find that your Desire gets stronger and stronger.

You can apply this to anything and you will find that your desire burns stronger than ever.

If you know someone who is wealthy, approach the person and offer to assist with anything, free of charge. Most people will appreciate this gesture. Some might even take you along to places they go and may even introduce you to their circle of friends.
Alternatively go to a Dealership that sells expensive cars and just sit in one of the cars in the show room. Experience the feeling of wealth. Touch the expensive leather and wood, smell it. You can do this as often as you like. The more you do it the higher your desire will be. Do all this in addition to your other efforts to accomplish your goal.

If you cannot physically go to the places I’ve mentioned, you can get these places and objects to come to you. Looking at pictures is another good way to increase your desire and it doesn’t cost you anything, other than a little effort.

You see, your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between a real and imagined experience. It will accept whatever is imprinted upon it, and will start attracting that condition in terms of the people and circumstances that you need to satisfy Your Desire!

There are thousands of magazines that have pictures of the object you desire. Here’s what I have done and what you can do too. Cut out some pictures that vividly depict the thing you want and paste it all over your room or office. Position some of the pictures in such a way that it is the first thing you see when you wake up or come into that room, and the last thing you see when you leave or fall asleep.

Here is a final thought. Desire alone will not accomplish your goals for you, it is just the Fuel. Imagine a car with fuel but no engine. Or a car that has fuel and an engine but no wheels. It won’t go anywhere. The same goes for someone who only has desire.

This by the way describes about 90% of all the people in the world, who only desire things but are not prepared to do what it takes to get what they want.

What Millionaire Business People Have In Common

Forbes magazine recently reported that there were 691 billionaires in the world. 1400people across the world turn into millionaires every day. Want to become one of them? Of course you do. Everyone wants the freedom to do business in the way they choose. There is so much power in running your own business – and having a business that runs itself, which for many people is the ultimate goal.Making money is not the only goal of becoming an internet millionaire – it’s about freedom. Many people across the world are gifted with experiencing this freedom every day. How can you become one of these people? What kind of life, and business, do you want to run? Would you like to be able to check your email from your private plane? These are the kinds of goals many people have in mind when they begin to forge ahead with their business ideas. But the truth is that the rich and the successful – the millionaires off and online – have about nine characteristics in common, not that different from a lot of people we all know. Most of them exhibit some or all of these. The truth is that we all have the potential for greatness – if we can train ourselves to keep this in mind as we go about our business day.1. They don’t blame. Successful businesspeople don’t blame others. Instead of making excuses for bad outcomes, or reassigning responsibility to others, they take time to learn from their own mistakes.

2. They are decisive. Millionaire-types have a vision. They take quick, decisive action aligned with that vision. They’re action oriented, always pushing forward toward their goals.

3. They trust their intuition. If something seems like it’s not quite right, they trust that instinct. If an opportunity excites them and sounds like a great idea, they go for it.

4. They are singly focused on their CORE business. Successful entrepreneurs may be inspired by ideas, but they always remain true to their vision. They focus on opportunities that are aligned with their business’s purpose. If you sell retail products on eBay, don’t try real estate investing the next day. They don’t lose focus. They may sell their products on eBay, write articles, focus on joint ventures, and go to marketing seminars, but all of their efforts, and FOCUS, help them move toward their main goals.

5. They are marketing focused. Millionaires, including such giants as Bill Gates, understand the importance of building on their core business. They hire people with specialties in marketing. They work hard at building their email lists, gaining exposure, and are constantly looking for ways to reaching a wider audience. If you want to build a decent income, you sell products and services. If you want to be insanely rich, then you create and control markets. The key to your business, and creating phenomenal success, is marketing.

6. They understand the importance of continuing education. Successful businesspeople are always learning and drawing from other people’s experiences. They listen to how other people have achieved their success, especially if these people have expertise in another industry. They are constantly learning about new approaches and strategies, and thinking about how they can apply it to their own business.

7. They are not afraid of making mistakes. Any big company online will tell you that they’ve had their share of downfalls, even such giants as eBay or Craig’s List. Mistakes are building blocks for success – by making mistakes, you learn what works, and what doesn’t. You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going. We all make mistakes, and one of the most powerful things you can do is glean feedback from them. Feedback is a great way to learn from your customers and colleagues. You need to look at feedback and take it with a grain of salt – it helps you learn and grow. See your mistakes as learning lessons.

8. They model their business for success. Internet millionaires model other people, strategies, and systems. They constantly look for models of success in everyday life and think about how to incorporate these lessons into their own strategy. They even look at their competition for answers. Whatever niche you’re in, subscribe to some industry newsletters, buy their products, and learn HOW they create success.

9. They build a team to rely on. No matter what stage you are in with your business, you’ve got to realize that you simply cannot do it all. You can’t be an expert in everything. You want to create a great team of people. How can you find them? Go to seminars and workshops. Hone your networking skills. You’ll often find that like minded people that are out there constantly learning and attending, seminars and workshops. Getting rich is a team sport. You have to have people that are cheering you on, encouraging your success.

These are some inherent characteristics of business millionaires. Can you apply them to your business and your life, too? Of course you can. If you can keep these principles in mind, you’ve got the millionaire mindset. No, you aren’t going to get there overnight. Making a million dollars takes some time. You can’t make a million dollars if you haven’t made your first hundred. So focus on the first hundred, first thousand, and first hundred thousand. Thinking this way goes a long way toward your goals – finding success, gaining riches, and living the kind of life you want to live.
