In a few days I’ll be talking about how to create a long distance
The hardest thing about recruiting big numbers in MLM is the fact that
you need to be really thick skinned at the core.
Recruiting 5-10 people a week isn’t normal. Infact, the average
Network Marketer only recruits 2.5 people in their career in MLM.
If you want to recruit big numbers, you need to take yourself out
of that equation.
Here’s what I mean by that:
If the average Network Marketer is only recruiting 2-3 people into
their program, In order to multiply those efforts you need to
use more leverage.
Step into my brain for a second..
Why am I gonna spend 45 minutes on the phone with a prospect when
I could spend those same 45 minutes on the phone with 500 prospects?!
You gotta be crazy!!
You need to MEGA MULTIPLY your efforts.
There’s no way I would be able to build a $100K/yr. business
in this industry if I were meeting EVERY SINGLE person at
starbucks to show them some silly presentation!
I’m simultaneously using sizzle calls, drop cards, mail outs,
websites, email templates, auto responders, webinars, video marketing,
voice shot blasts, major events, text blasts, facebook webinars, etc…
the list goes on and on and on my friends.
If you truly want to recruit like someone who absolutely KILLS IT
in Network Marketing, you need to start using TOOLS..right away.
Get out there and KILL IT in your Network Marketing business.
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.
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!
In closing, we conclude that it certainly DOES take money to make it.
Get out there and kill it in your Network Marketing Business!
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!
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…
-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).
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.
Using Social Media in MLM isn’t rocket science. It’s actually quite simple.
In this 11 minute video, I will talk about some of the basics.
In the next video, I will walk you through some really powerful social media
tactics to explode your MLM.

The funny thing about when I first started in the Network Marketing Industry is that I was really heavy
on sales and didn’t know crap about marketing. Because of my lack of knowledge about truly building
an MLM program, I failed miserably over and over again.
But that’s not the funny part.
The funny part is that I was actually a pretty darn good salesman.
I was making great money in Sales. I would also hear about other salespeople who
worked for the same timeshare company as me getting into other MLM’s and recruiting a
boat load of people in a matter of a couple days.
However, the story always ended up the same.
The TOP Salesperson type usually never had lasting success in MLM.
Although they could recruit in an almost effortless fashion, they
couldn’t lead, duplicate, and train if their lives depended on it.
That’s when I realized…It’s NOT just about being a slick salesperson!
For a few years, I stayed away from MLM (actually gave up on MLM to be honest)
and just studied intently on SALES & MAREKTING. I spent a ton of money
learning from the best in the world. I just knew I needed the knowledge to get
what I really wanted in life.
When I finally jumped back on the MLM bandwagon after studying
hard about the Network Marketing industry, true leadership, Offline
and Online marketing tactics, I hit the jackpot.
I was able to combine my super duper sales skills with my super marketing
know-how and lead & duplicate my way to a $100K MLM Success
I also paired up with some good mentors too. That’s a key element.
So, let’s get to business. This won’t take very long at all.
How to CLOSE the sale in MLM is kind of tricky. You see,
you close the sale by not really wanting it in the first place.
Now, obviously you probably want the enrollment more than
But you don’t manifest it. You don’t show it. Infact, you
act like you could give a crap.
Most times, the sale is closed before you’ve even started
talking. There’s a few dozen things that should’ve happened
in the very beginning stages of the greeting BEFORE you even
If you come from a place of, what is called “lack consciousness”, it will
manifest itself in your words and actions. If you are sitting down to
interview and qualify those people they will feel it and will try to
impress you and actually buy your time.
There is waaaay more to the mentality behind the sale, but I will
tell you this, no one wants to do business with the person who really
actually NEEDS the sale. Does that make any sense to you??
If you don’t believe me, just try and show up to the bank and ask them
to loan you money because you really NEED it. They most likely won’t give
it to you. No way!
Funny thing, is (especially nowdays) they are giving the money to the
people who don’t really need it as bad as those who do.
So how do you CLOSE the enrollment in your MLM?…
You STOP WANTING to CLOSE the sale, and START wanting your
prospects to start closing themselves to impress YOU.
Get out there and kill it in your MLM!!!!
I’ve often thought about the dynamics of events like the No Excuses Summit because since I attended it last year, it’s really changed my perception on the industry and how I market my business.
I’ve forgotten how much I actually paid to get into that event in 2010. However, I do know that I made tens of thousands of dollars within just a few short months after attending that event. It was directly related to the information that I obtained that I wouldn’t have been able to get at some regular corporate sponsored MLM company convention.
Because there is too much ego and “my way or the highway” leaders in every company at every convention. What do I mean by that?
Well, it’s an unsaid rule that you don’t want to offend other peoples group while you have the opportunity to speak from the stage at large events like a company convention. If you say something wrong or “against the grain” there will be hell to pay in the aftermath.
At events like the No Excuses Summit and a few others that are similar in nature, the people speaking from the stage and in the breakout sessions don’t give a crap about your upline or other upline leaders in the crowd. They tell you straight up how it is because it’s RAW info.
They don’t care if your feelings are hurt or if you are offended by them teaching a certain business building tactic that made them millions last year.
A few interesting people might go home and cry because they don’t agree with what’s being taught while the rest of us will continue to rake in terrible amounts of business these spineless distributors are leaving on the table.
Because of the fact that I’m a global top producer in my company, I sometimes get caught up in the “pleasing everybody” mode sometimes and catch myself telling people things they WANT to hear instead of telling them what they NEED to hear.
I have an email list much larger than my actual downline in my primary company. It’s sad sometimes to think that I can be more honest in building a successful Network Marketing business with my general opt-in list versus distributors in my actual MLM organization.
It’s mind bending at times.
Sometimes people get a little shaken up because I don’t hide the truth about building a successful Network Marketing business.
I sometimes ruffle some feathers amongst people in my own business. oh well.
I hated it when I found out that there was no tooth fairy either.
(I always wondered where that little fairy held all those rotten teeth and large sums of money.)
Let me ask you…
When something happens to your business (god forbid) and your organization gets wiped out, what will you take with you?
If you are like most people, you will take with you a very big chip on your shoulder and a lot of hatred, depression, and regret about the situation you ended up in. Most people quit the industry all together.
Here’s the tough question:
What type of knowledge do you have right now at your fingertips that would allow you to make money without your MLM business?
Here’s the even tougher question:
What type of knowledge do you have right now at your fingertips that would enable you to build a strong RESIDUAL INCOME without your MLM business?
…just some things to think about. Get to the “outsider” events, educate yourself and take the coaching & mentoring if one of a leader in your business is offering it.
Forget about all the nonsense and just get out there and kill it in your business.
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
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.
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.
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.
