How To Protect Media Uploads In WordPress?

Protecting media uploads and other files becomes important when you start selling digital content on your WordPress Ecommerce website. All media files on your WordPress site including the e-commerce uploads are located in uploads directory present inside wp-content directory which is located in your website’s root directory i.e. the main directory of your WordPress site installation.

You can protect this directory by installing-activating a plugin called Protect Uploads. Once the plugin is activated, simply navigate to your dashboard’s Media -> Protect Uploads page to see if the plugin is protecting your directory.

How It Works?

Anybody who wants to access your media files could list it by going to your-domain/wp-content/uploads from his web-browser. This plugin will hide the content by adding an index.php file on the root of your uploads directory or by setting a .htaccess which will return a 403 forbidden access error.

Depending on your server configuration, the .htaccess option could be disabled from the plugin settings page.

What Is People’s Personal Outlet And How Does It Work?

People’s Personal Outlet is your home employment where you work from your home following Sangkrit’s four-fundamentals to bring other businesses online. Your business tasks in hand are:

  1. Sale of your product
  2. Home-Employing others to work as your outlet
  3. Training your outlets, ensuring that they make a sale

Sale Of Your Product

You earn money when you sell something. Humankind makes private property. Registering and developing a domain is the latest of its kind. You simply earn money by helping others to register and develop their domain names to finally operate their businesses online. More businesses are coming online and the shift is going faster these days. Hence, you have got a lot of opportunities but that doesn’t mean to make yourself busy building a long list of prospects or randomly target people without having a good plan. For being successful in your business you will have to understand the market, find out the problems your prospective clients are facing, and then provide them a solution in their words so that they can easily understand the real need of your product and pay you for helping them out. Don’t waste time educating your prospective clients personally, do this thing by blogging your business on your domain to make value out from your thoughts by publishing them as your blog posts.

Home-Employing Others To Work As Your Outlet

Building a network of your own outlets will help you to close more deals and increase your sales. At the same time, you will help many people by home-employing them as people’s personal outlet. As a people’s personal outlet, you make and sell websites & apps to help other businesses come online. Your second task is to engage others to do the same and also encourage them to induct more people as their personal outlets.

You may also utilize your customer base and the people you know, to sell your products. When someone in your team makes a sale, both of you will receive a percentage of profit. The bigger network you have, the more profit you will make.

Training Your Outlets And Ensuring That They Make A Sale

In addition to inducting more people, you should also keep them motivated to help them stay active and sell more products. You should also encourage them to introduce more people to their business and build their own network of outlets. This, in turn, will give them a percentage of profit from each product sold by the outlet in their network.

Not All Employments Are Equal

Not all employments are equal. For example, a job can full fill your daily needs, but it gives you no chance to become rich even if you are capable of. It gives you no security, and you may lose it with recession or any time of crisis. So whether you want to work eight to nine hours a day for whole life or just two to three years rigorously to build a system that brings you income even when you are sleeping? Working under someone else is bad on its own, and it gets worse when the source of your support suddenly stops.

Second is self-employment which is of course better than a job but is itself a paid labor where your income stops when you stop working. Apart from the above two, a business is a much better option but not all types of businesses, as you need capital to invest and then wait for your business to thrive. It makes you invest in staff, location, bills, and other expenses and if in-case your business fails, you end up having nothing except the stress of loans you have taken.

So what is best? The best is home-employment and the best home employment is starting up as people’s personal outlet. It gives you a chance to earn from the very first day of your business and offers you the opportunity to become rich in two-three years of hard work. Being a people’s personal outlet you work from your home following Sangkrit’s four-fundamentals to help other businesses come online.

Everybody needs money to survive, your financial freedom makes your life better but it can also make your life worse if you choose the wrong type of work. The activities that make you independent are the ones that you probably don’t like doing, and this is the reason for all your problems. So change yourself, and your life will also change.

Be the owner of your business, make your own decisions, you don’t need anybody, your key to success is doing the right things every day and you will get the success you want. Start your day following Sangkrit’s four-fundaments of cleaning your private space, cooking your vegetarian meals, programming your world, and blogging your business to work from your home as people’s personal outlet and help people in bringing their businesses online.

The Problem Is You

Don’t wait for the things to get better, wish you were better in managing them. For your life to get better, you have to change many small things in your life. Everybody has problems, everyone faces rejection, don’t wish for a problem-free life, it is not possible. Instead, work on your skills to become a good problem solver. Selling is the most important skill of your life, everybody is selling something even if they don’t know about it, or how to do it properly. Selling the right thing in the right way at the right time makes you rich.

To get the best in your life you should start by following Sangkrit’s four-fundaments to work from your home as people’s personal outlet and help businesses to come online. You will have the success you want if you follow the system, consistently, every single day without getting disheartened from the problems and rejections you face during the survival phase of your business.

When you start selling something, you start to face rejection. Rejection simply means that you are making attempts, you are taking actions, and you are actively working for the success of your business. The problem is not how learned you are, how much experience you have, your financial situation, or your responsibilities. The problem is you.

You Will Have To Train Yourself

Most of the problems in life are internal, not external and you can solve them out. Make yourself better by learning from your failure, learn from other’s failures too, read necessary books and articles, and most importantly you will have to train yourself. You have to master the skill of selling your product to anyone and that you can teach yourself by facing a sufficient amount of rejections because then only your brain starts to improve you and your way of handling problems. It all works in the background, just like gaining physical strength or muscle mass or learning a bicycle, you just have to take actions consistently and repeatedly. The more attempts you will do, the better you will get, the easier it will become and the more successful you will be.

The Harder You Try, The More Unconvincing You Become

When you do nothing, your results are nothing. When you do very little, your results are nothing. When you act massively, the results can be little, massive, or zero. But when you act consistently, the results become massive. So in order to succeed, staying consistent is your key. There would be some exceptions, they are also in science and math but for most of the people, it works like this only.

Being a people’s personal outlet, you are on the right track and this track is not a race with many competitors. Instead, it is like a no time frame marathon, where you can succeed only by moving in the right direction. The rejections you face in between are hurdles that cannot be removed, it has nothing to fear about but you will have to make up your mind for that to finally reach your destination.

Working as a people’s personal outlet, your objective is to make money by bringing all businesses online. You do this by helping people to register their domain name, and then you make their business website using Managed WordPress or WordPress Ecommerce.

Whatsoever marketing technique you use, you will certainly face rejections and if you are not prepared to face people who reject your offer, the first few rejections are going to scare you out, this is the point of time where most of the people fail by trying very hard to convince their prospects, and then they quit. Learn from the rejections you face but never let them stop you from taking actions.

You must have heard some marketing calls where the salesperson sitting on the other side tries to sell you some product or service on the behalf of some company. How many times have you said yes to their offer? Most of the time you would have cut the call in between or asked them not to disturb you further. Still, these people never stop trying. Why? They are making some value out from such boring attempts, there must be some people actually saying yes to their offers. Every salesman faces rejections on a regular basis, it is part of the selling process so just don’t worry about it and never try harder to convince others. The harder you will try, the more unconvincing you will become. You simply need to move to your next target and carry on with your efforts.

The Internet Is Here To Stay

Internet is here to stay and the requirement for essentials i.e. domains, websites & apps isn’t going to disappear. By working as a people’s personal outlet you choose the Internet as your place of doing business and you help others in doing the same. By doing this, you get a very big market to capture from your home simply by blogging your business.

As a people’s personal outlet your objective is to help other businesses to come online. You do this by helping businesses to register their domain name, then you make their website with the help of Managed WordPress or WordPress Ecommerce and you charge something for that.

This business marketing can be done in two different ways:

  1. Targeting the global
  2. Outreaching the local

Both of the ways have their own side of importance.

Targeting The Global Market

The first way is blogging your business on your domain, it helps you to target the global market. This is a long term plan, not a one day task. It helps you to establish your domain, your identity on the world wide web, and following that it brings you business with progressive passive income.

Passive income means the income which requires little or no effort in earning whereas progressive passive income is when you make little effort to grow your income. In your case, this type of income is built when you keep blogging your business on your domain and make use of Google Adsense to monetize your website.

Outreaching The Local Prospects

The second way works locally, it can be a short term plan which gives a boost to your new business as the income can get big, fast and you can start your earning from the very first day. Here, what you have to do is reach out to the businesses in your neighborhood, in your city and help them to come online.

When you will start outreaching your prospects, you will certainly meet two types of people:

  1. People who were already waiting for your call, message or email
  2. People who were not waiting for your call, message or email

The first kind is the group of people who already know that they have a need of bringing their business online, they already want a website from a good service provider. The reason they are still offline can be anything, maybe no one contacted them before, or the developers who contacted them asked for more money, trust issue, procrastination, etc. You can easily close deals to this type of prospects with a good offer Also keep in mind that these people don’t just want your services, they want a relationship with a person they can talk to and get help from.

The second kind is the group of people still living in the industrial age, even the wakeup call from coronavirus pandemic hasn’t woken them up so just let them sleep, don’t target them personally with calls, messages, and emails, etc. This group should be targetted impersonally with the medium of blogging and advertisements etc. You are already blogging your business to enlighten humanity, so your local efforts should be focussed on the first group of people.

Selling Homemade Products Online With WordPress Ecommerce

If you are a maker, consider selling your products online from your home using your WordPress Ecommerce website.

When you are a maker of your products, you get the power to control all aspects of your items, make them cost-effective and offer them to your audience from your online store, targeting consumer demand in the market simply by blogging your business. WordPress Ecommerce enables you to start selling anything online from your place and you can reach out to new prospects by blogging your business.

Homemade Production Process

Your homemade production process doesn’t have to be enormous especially during the starting phase of your business. You can simply target your neighborhood and when you are ready to scale you may expand in your city by establishing a process of making more products in your home.

You can start the production process easily from your home, just take some time out for it, just as you take some time out from your schedule for watching movies, making phone calls, exercising and yoga, etc.

Make products, click their pictures form your smartphone, and list them for online selling in your WordPress Ecommerce website. Another good advantage for your small business is that you can set a standard delivery time of one week or something and then carry out the production process as you get new orders.

What Homemade Products Can Be Sold Online?

The homemade products that can be sold online can be anything you know how to make. For instance: People are selling candles, pickles, cookies, candies, jam, jelly, dry pasta, chips, noodles, bread, snacks, and similar eatable items, white cement-based flower pots, and other decorative items (there are many YouTube tutorials on this), you can sell plants, arts & crafts, homemade cost-effective jewelry items, sweaters, and homemade clothing items, masks, homemade soaps or anything else you like. For better production and a professional touch, you can search for specific video tutorials on YouTube.

Apart from this, if you are good at cooking then you can also sell breakfast, lunch, and dinner in your locality on pre-booked orders. For-instance: Neighbourhood people may book their breakfast, lunch, or dinner in advance, all you have to do is make extra food, pack it and then let them pick it up from your house gate.

How To Start Your Online Store Website?

Simply register your domain name then subscribe to WordPress Ecommerce, follow the on-screen process and it will take you to your website’s admin panel from there you can add your products and start selling online.

Keep Blogging Your Business

By blogging your business you can promote your products online, Also keep in mind that people don’t just want products, they want a relationship with a person they can talk to and get help from. You can build your trust by addressing your prospects in your posts. You may also ask your existing customers to help you in selling by recommending your products to the people they know, offer them some commission for that.

You may also work as people’s personal outlet by helping others to bring their businesses online, just as you did. Help them in registering their domain name and then you can make their websites with Managed WordPress or WordPress Ecommerce, charge something for that.

Track Demand For Out Of Stock Items In WordPress Ecommerce

The online demand for products is increasing, surpassing an earlier peak of eCommerce businesses worldwide. The impact of the corona crisis has changed consumer behavior and has also created challenges to online selling which no one has imagined before.

If your products frequently go out of stock then you should also maintain a waitlist for customers to keep them connected with your online shopping website.

WordPress Ecommerce provides you everything you need to start selling online. By installing and activating a plugin called Waitlist Woocommerce ( Back in stock notifier ) you can easily track demand for out-of-stock items, ensuring your customers feel informed, and therefore more likely to buy from your website. Once the plugin is activated you can select options from its settings page on your website’s admin panel.

The plugin enables your customers to add their email and product demand using a simple popup form visible on out of stock product pages so that they can be notified when the items they were looking for are back in stock. It sends an email to specific customers as soon as the product arrives back in your stock.

You Are Safe Only At Your Home

Safety is your first priority because when you are at risk, your business is at risk, your family and your complete environment is also at risk.

Many states are loosening their stay-at-home policies as they don’t have a workable plan or strategy to run the economy in lockdown or recover from it after lockdowns. This means the businesses will be opening soon, but as the COVID-19 cases are still increasing every day, there’s nothing like coronavirus is gone or going away and you are safe.

Post lockdowns, if not most then many of the businesses are operating in the same old way. Wearing masks, sanitizing the premises, and maintaining social distance cannot be called a new way of doing business. The new way is when you completely leave the old way, the new way is to bring your offline business online and operate from home, the new way is to manage all your business activities on the remote.

Be 100% Sure About Your Safety

Bringing your business online is the best, workable safety measure to implement because you can stay safe only at your home. Any offline business structure can never be called a hundred percent safe and secure.

Offline business models will experience a reduction in sales. At the same time, they will have to comply with the safety and social distancing guidelines, they will have to make new policies to keep their staff and workers safe, provide sanitizers and masks to the team, install partitions between staff and customers, ensure bathrooms are stocked with soaps and disposable towels and make sure every new entry is following all safety guidelines. They will have to manage all these new expenses and work on new management policies at the time when their business is going real down.

Still, they will never be a hundred present sure about their safety loopholes, and every new coughing or sneeze by someone will make them wonder about the spreading COVID-19 infection.

Feel Safe About Yourself, Your Family And Your Business

Hence, it is much better to bring your business online and feel safe about yourself, your family, and your business. If your business type stops you from operating online then make necessary changes to it, adopt new and leave old, pivot in your business and build a new stream of income as people’s personal outlet and do whatever is necessary because now you know what is more important for you.

Design a new structure of your business that can be operated from home, and if some offline activity is necessary then reduce the number of people to work at a given time or limit it to one, this is the big advantage of a small business that most of the things can be managed by an individual himself.

Start By Following Four Fundamentals Of Sangkrit

Start by following Sangkrit’s four fundamentals of cleaning your private space, cooking your vegetarian meals, programming your world, and blogging your business. To blog your business simply register your domain name, then subscribe to Managed WordPress.

What To Do When Social Distancing Is Denouncing Your Small Business?

Such businesses include salons & spa businesses, individual barbers, teachers, instructors, event organizers, house management, home care services, individual experts such as plumbers & electricians, etc. The solution for them is to stop waiting for the crisis to end in order to meet clients in person.
