Why your closest friends don’t join you in your MLM

It’s no secret.

Your friends don’t join you in your MLM
because they know all your trash.

Your friends remember every failure you’ve
ever encountered in life. They remember
every time you said that “this was the one”.

The reason why your friends don’t join you
in you business is because you need to stop
making YOURSELF THE ISSUE!

Use the tools my friends.

Instead of yapping your mouth about what you
think you sound good explaining,
use a tool.

Instead of yapping your mouth about what your
comp plan,
send them the video.

Instead of yapping your mouth about your
company founder and the secret plant that was
found at the top of such n such mountain,
send them the video.

Basically, the closer the relationship…
The less you get yapping.

Vi-Crunch Crashes SnapChat

Overwhelming Response To Vi Crunch Launch Crashes Snapchat
Press Release | 8/27/2013

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23, 2013 — ViSalus, the leading weight-loss and fitness Challenge platform, inspired thousands of attendees at its Vitality Conference in Orlando to download Snapchat for clues about the company’s latest product launch. The ViSalus internal social team – whose initiatives continue to break new ground in the direct selling industry – utilized the popular photo-video sharing app to engage its independent Promoters in learning more about the patent-pending Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal. The response was overwhelming with nearly three thousand downloading Snapchat in the first 24 hours – crashing the app twice.
The ViSalus social team created simple, fun videos starring the internal staff that demonstrated a “crunch” sound, from crushing a can to doing a stomach crunch, to tease the Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal.

“We continue to try to meet our customers where they are. Their active social engagement on burgeoning social networking platforms, like Snapchat, demonstrates they are a unique audience on the cutting edge of communication,” said Blake Mallen, ViSalus Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Office. “We are thrilled that the launch of Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal, which we kept under wraps for two years, clearly inspired and excited them.”

Why Pinterest Should Be Your Best Friend

Ok, so this was a long overdue blog post. I’ve been spying on Pinterest
for the last few months now. Pinterest didn’t really catch my interest
because I didn’t really see a lot of value in it at first.

When I started seeing Pinterest links, social “follow me on Pinterest”,
and “pin this” buttons on numerous blogs, I realized that it was about
time that I paid some attention to it.

You know how the old saying goes, “there is power in numbers”.

Unless there were a ridiculously enormous amount of people on Pinterest
as there is right now, there wouldn’t be a lot of value in it.
However, once again, Where there are groups of people, there is power.

And as a Network Marketer, you know we absolutely LOVE the groups
of folks. New prospects.

Lets start off with a few basics…

What exactly is Pinterest?
Answer: you want to think of Pinterest like your very own personal
“cork board wall”. Whatever you come across on the internet, much
like a magazine or a newspaper, you would cut out an article or image
and pin it up on that corkboard.

How does Pinterest go Viral?
Answer: Well, just like that cork board wall, when you collect picture,
articles, etc.. you have friends that will see your content appear
on their facebook feed, twitter feed, email, etc… and they
will “like” or “re pin” your content.

When someone else repins your content, they now become a “follower” of
your Pinterest Wall and their contact, friends, etc.. will now somehow
connect with you with everyone else.

Let’s start off with the basics:

1) Your Profile

Your personal profile section will be your introduction to everyone that visits your profile page.
This lets everyone know that you are indeed a real person and that you actually
have a personality. Mention your name, what you do, what you find cool, what you love to
search on the internet, something light, upbeat, etc..
[Main point is to not get too radically serious]

2) Creating Your Pinterest “Boards”

Just as soon as you open your account, you want to start creating “boards” like crazy!
Divide your boards up into different categories (here’s mine below).
Everything from personal development to shoes, to jewelry, etc..
the sky is the limit here. Once again, keep it light.

This is where you want to get a bunch of categories up and running to get more
people to identify with you. If I only have a “Self Help” board and “My MLM Is
Better Than Yours And This Is Why” Board that really narrows the likelihood
of a ton of people identifying with you.

For example, my MLM company (visalus) gives out BMW’s and that’s our marketing
tool to reach out to more prospects. So of course, guess what type of corkboard
I’m gonna have in order to find people who love BMW’s now???

Right!! I’m gonna create a BMW board! You see how this is going?!
If you are marketing a weight loss product and you are seriously
wanting to tap into the groups of people that desire to get into
shape, guess what kind of board you need to make?!

Right! A board that has to do with weight loss and fitness.

3) How you “follow” people.

Whenever you go to someones wall either from the Pinterest
“search function” or just randomly browsing (how everyone
does like Faccebook or Twitter) and you “repin” their
content, you automatically become a “follower” of
theirs on Pinterest and you automatically start
syndicating their content.

Now, that isn’t 100% confirmed at this point but since
there is NO absolute answer on that online but it seems
like it certainly is pointing that direction.

I’m continuing my observation on this matter so stay
tuned.

3) Getting a Pinterest Following.

The easiest way to get a pinterest following is to get a
Pinterest logo on your blog along with the “pin this” logo
on your blog.


If you have an email list, you could blast it out to your
list.

Blast it out to all your facebook friends!

Just simply tell people to follow you on Pinterest and
watch what you pin over the next day or two!

3) Keep your audience (followers) on their feet.
Try not to stay “in the box” about business ALL THE TIME. I pin shoes, watches,
cool new tech gadgets, fashion, dream destinations, etc.. just to
keep my followers engaged.

Some people think they are doing their audience a favor by strictly
talking about only business. This goes for Facebook too!
Little do they know, it gets redundant and predictable and sooner
than later, your followers will see NO value in going to your
wall to see whats new.

CONCLUSION::

Pinterest is a powerful, new, fresh way to get more prospects, get your
content syndicated by tons of people.

All you need to do is get an account and figure out how to do it right.

Happy Pinning!

The “I don’t use Facebook” Mentality

It’s outright, ridiculous.

Sometimes, I think people try not to use facebook to prove
some kind of foolish point. LOL..

I say foolish, because those who are using Social Media are
stealing more leads from those people then they will ever know.

If you are a business owner, marketer, trying to make money
from home, etc… you have NO BUSINESS NOT BEING ON
FACEBOOK, TWITTER, ETC…

Just take 4 minutes and 25 seconds and watch this video
that might change your outlook on what you think about
Social Media.

If you are a Network Marketer and lightly smirking by not being an active
Facebook communicator, well, all I can say is..

You are losing money every single day, to people that are.
I don’t know if that is something to smirk about.

Facebook is the 3rd largest country in the world right now. It beats Google with
traffic. Watch the video above and tell me how many of your friends might have
already opted in to someone elses list to take a look at your opportunity that
you are trying to pitch to them with your little sample pack and opportunity
DVD.

Success In Network Marketing is based largely on “Expediting Of Information”.

He or She who expedites information the fastest wins.

If you take 3-4 days to meet up with your prospect and I only take 1-2 minutes
to email them a link or hit them up on their wall. Most likely, I’ll win.

Do you know how many people have lost prospects that are on their “chicken list”
who they haven’t even approached yet?! A TON!

The business savvy people are usually business savvy because they are
resourceful and don’t have a terrible amount of time to waste in coffee shops looking
at magazines and flipcharts. They like to do their homework on their downtime and
get straight to the point.

Question: Do you NEED Facebook to really pitch your opportunity??
Answer: NObut you also don’t need to drive a car to work as well!
You could easily ride a horse or walk.

Point:
Some things just flat out make sense.

If you are a Network Marketer.. doesn’t it make sense to actively NETWORK
within a MARKET that has the LARGEST network around??!!

So, next time someone asks you “are you on Facebook?” and you give the cute
giggle and smirk as you politely say “No, I don’t do that facebook thing”

Maybe you’ll hear some money getting sucked out of your business and mentally
see them walking into someone elses business…instead of yours.

Stop fighting it.. You are a Networker. Network!!

The “It Takes Money To Make Money” Myth.

Throughout my career in business, I’ve often overheard many traditional
businessmen casually state that it takes money to make money. I wanted
to address that and see if that logic actually holds any merit.

For many of us in the Network Marketing or Direct Sales world, you know
that isn’t necessarily true…or is it??

When I first got started in my current company as an independent distributor,
I paid $499 for my start up kit.

Yes, I was broke so I didn’t have a lot of money to spend.

Now some people would claim that isn’t a lot of money but, you see, that
might not be a lot of money…on my part.

However, someone had to come up with the money to start that company.

  • Someone had to pay for the scientific research on products, didn’t they?
  • Someone had to pay for the licensing of those products..didn’t they?
  • Someone had to pay for the staff to start a company, didn’t they?
  • Someone had to pay for the manufacturing and distribution of that

product, didn’t they?

Somewhere along the line…the opportunity would not have been possible
if large amounts of capital were not invested.

Even if you want to purchase Real Estate with “No Money Down” someone
has to come up with the money somewhere down the line.

What does this mean for your business??

Here’s what I’m getting at…

If you aren’t making money in your Network Marketing business, chances
are you don’t have any MONEY moving through your organization.

If you don’t have money moving through your group, you don’t get paid.

Now..Let’s apply this to marketing your business.

If you don’t have new recruits for your business, what is your plan?
You obviously need more prospects so you can talk to more people, right?
If you want to advertise or do PPC, you need money in your budget
but if you aren’t making money in your business and can’t make the investment
you are dead in the water.

That mainly leaves you with virtually 1 option.

Go and personally talk to a bunch of friends, family, co workers, strangers, etc..

Now, the catch there is that you are DEPENDING on them to pay you..so you
are actually hoping they are in a better financial situation than you are. LOL!

Do you see, where this is going?? Without money, you aren’t going to make it.
If YOU don’t need to have it, But someone else WILL.

Now…Here’s how to leverage yourself into a Marketing / Advertising budget
worth thousands of dollars. This is where “Funded Proposal” Marketing comes
into play. It’s nothing new. Infact, anyone that tries to tell you that attraction
marketing is some new thing that people are “trying” to make work, they don’t
know what the H*** they are talking about.

So here’s how you do it.

1) You need to find a way that targets your specific audience.
2) You find a way to add value to that audience and appeal to them.
3) Get them to purchase a “low end” / entry level product that adds
cash to your pocket and their info to your list.
4) The money from that funded funnel will drive your marketing budget
higher so you can reach more people.
5) You create a relationship with those prospects / customers and bring
them into your opportunity.
6) You make even more money and the money you get from step #3 just
repeats over and over which enables you to advertise more and more.

So, that’s it! If you can’t pay for advertising PPC costs…

Get your prospects to pay that bill for you!

Take a look at my funded proposal / attraction marketing funnel that
I use to recruit with.

In closing, we conclude that it certainly DOES take money to make it.

Get out there and kill it in your Network Marketing Business!

Should You Do Social Media…Even If You Suck Online?!

Most people would wonder why I would suggest that someone uses social
media to drive more prospects to their MLM.

Truth is, most people would find that it is a heck of a lot easier to use
Social Media rather than crafting persuasive emails to every
single one of their prospects…

Or even meeting with their prospects face to face!

Why you are really an Information Marketer…Not an MLMer.

I think it’s interesting to see how people think that they really aren’t
in the Information Marketing business and how they are just MLMers
who have great products, blah, blah, blah.

It’s truly interesting to see networkers finally come to their senses
when they realize that they really only get paid to do one thing…

GIVE INFORMATION.

-When we prospect someone, don’t we offer to give them more info?
-When you tell someone about the “awesome products” you offer
aren’t you giving them more info?
-When you are telling someone about the comp plan, isn’t that info?

It’s crazy to think that you aren’t in the INFO MARKETING business.

Here’s my point..Even when people sign up into your business,
If you don’t have an email autoresponder system that keeps
them in the loop, you are simply losing money.

I personally use AWEBER…I’ve used a few different ones
but AWEBER is the best one (in my opinion).

Try AWEBER for just $1 by clicking here.

If you aren’t staying connected with your people by keeping them
in the loop by email or text, you are seriously losing money.

You are probably losing customers.
You are definitely losing distributors.

You will continue to lose everyone until you come to the realization that
you are in the business of marketing information that help people make
decisions to move forward.

What Game Are You Playing?

Some Network Marketers are so afraid of doing what works. As hard as it seems,
sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone in order to break
past the barrier that is stopping you. Most times, it will require you to
work harder and pay the harder price. However, as we all know…
No Pain No Gain.

If you are talking to your friends and family and it’s not working…
Think about what you need to do to become more persuasive. Switch It Up!

If you are attempting to do online marketing and it’s not working…
Think about what the top online marketers are doing and switch up your game!

If you are doing tons of presentations but HARDLY sign anyone up…
take a good hard look at what one of the top closers in your company is doing,
duplicate them and switch up your old routine.

If I’m 300 pounds, I’m not going to jump on one of the really aggressive short boards
that are also very thin. No matter how much positive thinking I put into it,
I’ll still sink the board underwater and have a very, very difficult time
catching waves. While in the meantime, other guys who are just as heavy
as I am are passing me up with the thicker, bigger, longboards. They are
catching waves with ease while I’m out of breath before even paddling out
to the lineup.

Switch It Up! It will most likely be the most powerful thing you will ever
do for your business.

Kyani -MLM Company Review

So it’s no secret that I’m involved in Kyani. I’m one of the top global producers in Kyani
so it’s no big surprise that I’m obviously gonna blog about it as well. A lot of people ask me
why I decided to join Kyani back in January of 2009. For me, it wasn’t really rocket science.

I wish I could say that I was making a lot of money prior to Kyani. I wasn’t.
I wish I could say that I had a huge organization in another MLM company…but I didn’t.
I didn’t have huuuge influence on the industry so I was very basic in my approach of
analyzing Kyani. I was broke, I was tired of chasing a dream with other companies that
didn’t stick around. I just wanted to know if Kyani was gonna be around. I flew up to a
major event in St. George Utah and met the company founders, corporate team, and
top distributors.

I was pretty impressed at how “un-hyped” the opportunity was. Now, I love hype. I believe
that hype has its time and place in any MLM business. The big downfall is when the whole
opportunity is based off of hype. Kyani wasn’t.

They were founded back in 2005 by a handful of very successful business people who had
nothing to do with MLM. At this point, I’ve met and have become very good friends with all
the company owners and founders so I know the story pretty well. Every other online review
that I’ve read doesn’t have a single real clue about the ethics and integrity behind this company.

So let me lay it out very simply here.

Dick and Gayle powell had previously sold their cinnamon roll franchise and had been traveling
to Alaska for a number of years. They were approached by some scientific researchers regarding
some study that had been done on the Alaskan Eskimo’s. More specifically, the Klinka tribe.

High blood pressure, gout, diabetes, etc… didn’t exist amongst their people which is why the
study was done. They were amazed and so the study began.

Without getting into some major detail, they went back to their hometown and approached
The Hansen family and the Taylor family as investors. Kyani was born.

Kyani means “Strong Medicine” in the Klinka (Alaskan Eskimo Tribe) language. Between the Hansens
and the Taylors, their businesses exceed a billion dollars in hard assets and straight capital.
Needless to say, Kyani is well funded.

Products:
Kyani has 3 products. Kyani Sunrise (Functional Juice Beverage), Kyani Sunset (Omega 3 w/ Vitamin e tocotrienol gelcaps), and Kyani Nitro FX (Nitric Oxide PreCursor). These products are actually pretty affordable. A month supply (which is 1 of each of these products) will hit you with a $140.00 tab. When broken down, you’re spending less than $4 a day for these supplements. That’s about the average in the industry.

Compensation Plan:
Kyani’s compensation plan is very, very, very strong on residual. Kyani has a feature in their compensation plan called a “paygate accumulator”. Watch my video on it by clicking here. It’s original. Most of all it works and it pays out heavy.

Timing:
