How To “Keep It Simple & Keep Your Prospects Interested” VIDEO

One of the first things we hear our new upline leaders tell us is…
Keep It Simple! However, is it that easy?

Well, the ironic thing is that “Keeping It Simple” is
actually a lot harder than complicating it.

It takes practice, it takes skill, and more practice.

Here’s how I became really good at the “KISS METHOD”
for prospecting:

How to know if your MLM Business will last.

 

I don’t know if it gets any better than “walk away income”
(as they call it in the Investor world) in Network Marketing.

There is an actual method by where you can actually
figure out if you will ever have “walk away” income
in this industry though.

I figured this very complex formula ALL BY MYSELF. Can you believe that??!

Well, if you didn’t know about this FORMULA, you are about to know now.

You see, after years of being in the industry as
a six figure earner, I’ve figured out a pretty intense
method of figuring out if your business has the
longevity factor.

Ok, here it is.

ACTUAL CUSTOMERS + SYSTEM DUPLICATION= PASSIVE INCOME.

And there you have it.

The more customers you have PLUS
the more people you have duplicating a system,
the higher your “walk away” income becomes.

If you have NO ACTUAL customers (not promoter / customers)
and no one actually DUPLICATING a system then
your business is dead meat.

AC + SD= “TRULY PASSIVE” INCOME.

MORE AC PLUS SD= MORE TRULY PASSIVE INCOME.
CRAZY TYPE AC PLUS SERIOUSLY CRAZY SD EQUALS= RIDICULOUS PASSIVE INCOME.

VOILLA!!

whew…. that was intense.

How to cash in when your company rolls out new stuff…

ok, so this post is pretty self evident. Most people
in your company will get excited about the new stuff
that get rolled out.

However, as I’ve said before: Excitement only lasts
so long. If you don’t have a plan to execute, you
have nowhere to go and no target.

Simple Equation for NEW rollouts:

BEFORE THE ROLL OUTS

1) make sure you call your old, current, and new
prospects and let them know that there will be some
news rolling out that will be of great benefit to them.

Ask them if they are open to an update once you get it.

2) Make sure you call your old, current, and new
promoters and tell them to do Step #1 within 24 hours.
You can offer an incentive prize to accomplish that.

AFTER THE ROLL OUT / ANNOUNCEMENTS

3) Invite all your prospects on to a PRIVATE webinar where
you discuss the new rollouts. Prospects (whether they are
interested or not) love to be on the “inside track”.

4) Initiate a CALL TO ACTION on that webinar or conf call
with a TSO (Time Sensitive Offer).

Watch for my next post on more things to do to cash in
on your company’s promos.

I might even show you guys one of my recorded launch webinars.

Get out there and kill it in your MLM business
my friends!

Will tons of leads really fix your business??

It seems like everyone in Network Marketing are getting
more concerned about getting leads rather than getting
strong at relationship building and actually getting
people enrolled in their business.

It certainly takes some skill to generate a lead,
it takes even MORE skill to close that lead into your
business.

Today, I recorded this audio clip (which is downloadable)
to shed some light on this issue.

I also talk about another interesting Myth about building
a lasting business in Network Marketing.

Take a listen my friends and download the audio!

Cold Market Prospecting: “The Airport”

 

I’m sitting in the airport surrounded tons of people who are
Waiting for their flights just like me.

I can’t help but think to myself “how many of these people
Are thinking about making some extra money right now.”

Just so you know, I laughed just now as I wrote that line above.
It’s laughable because I know that’s how sooo many
aspiring Network Marketers think.

They canvass the terrain looking for the next
Overweight person to pitch their weight loss deal to, or they
wait for the hunt for the individual who looks like the
best “broke prospect” so they
Can offer them the opportunity of a lifetime.

It’s absolute craziness!

Just for fun, I’m gonna act as if I were going to prospect someone
right now…kinda like a challenge.

First thing I do (before the actual steps listed below) I pan the area.

So I’m looking around right now and I see about 3 people out of a mass
crowd that I would go out of my way to prospect to get into my business.
Let me show you my thought process as I hand selected these 3 people:

1) Hot Habits:

There are certain habits, or pieces of character that
I LOVE that I spot right off the top.

Certain things a person wears, does, or reacts to
says tons about the person. Today, let’s keep it
simple.

I instantly canvassed the place for the best dressed person.
First thing that caught my eye was this lady who looks like she
is in her early 40’s. She’s wearing designer sunglasses, great
matching colors, looks like she takes care of herself, has a Louis
Vuitton purse, and hammering away on her laptop which just so happens
to be the newest Macbook Pro. $2,000+ dollar laptop.

Why do I care about the way this person looks?

It’s obvious that she cares about how people view her. I’ll best you
9 times out of 10, she works in some type of marketing or sales that
forces her to be in front of people.

If I am hand selecting a prime candidate to mentor, who am I gonna choose?

The person who looks like she doesn’t give a flying hoot about the way
she looks in public, or the person who goes out of their way to portray
a professional image?

Of course, this is just me. You might be different from me and you might
be thinking on a total different wavelength on this one.
I’ve been doing this for a while, so I have my quirks on this stuff.

Ok, back to the real life scenario…

2) Situation Placement

Alright, so this lady looks like a prime SUSPECT for my
business right now, I don’t know if she is truly an absolute
fit but that is for me to find out.
Now, the next thing to do is place myself in the situation
very naturally.

Here’s an example of what I would do. I take notice that
she is sitting by the Airport massage chairs.
2 of the 5 chairs are taken.

She’s looking down at her iPhone and firing away some text
messages to her clients or friends I suppose. Maybe she’s
just playing a very serious game of AngryBirds or something.. who knows!

I notice that she has 2 bags in front of her. That makes me
wonder if she is traveling with someone else or if she is by herself.

Now, if she is married and traveling with her husband, that will
switch up the dynamics up a bit here but I will turn that into a
very positive thing in just a minute if that is the case.

Now, I would move in with the Situation Placement…

I would walk over to the massage chair a few chairs over and as
I’m walking to the chair, I’d make eye contact for a brief second
at her and acknowledge she is there. I’d openly smile and ask her if
she tried one of these massage chairs herself and jokingly ask if

It’s worth the “big money”.

I say a quirky one liner to gauge her “entertainment level”.
If she laughs or smiles as she says something in return,
I’ve got a LIVE one.

If she is nice right off the bat, I’ve got a runner.
If she is a snot, I’ve got a few more arrows in my quiver
until I call it quits on this suspect and move on to someone who is a
stronger candidate.

Someone with a bad attitude is definitely a huge minus in my book.
I would never want to deal with someone like that in the first place.

Let’s say in this situation she ends up having a great attitude,
she actually smiles, and responds back
in a favorable way.

BINGO. “Houston, we have liftoff”!

Now, I’m still waiting for that wildcard… does she have a
significant other?? If she does, I am not going to engage in
detailed conversation until I see the full hand of cards
I’m playing with.

The reason why I’m so picky on this is because what do you
think will happen if her unsuspecting husband shows up only
to have another dude there talking to his wife? I’ve learned
my lesson a long time ago with this one.

If she is just traveling with her co worker who
happens to be another female. Once, I verify that detail,
I’ll move in to Phase 2.

Just so you know, most times it’s a lot harder to cold
prospect a couple rather than a single party. Why? Because
it takes more energy from you since it’s more spread out.

3) Conversational Pieces

First question I’m gonna ask is, “Is that the NEW Macbook PRO?”
I’d let the conversation stem from there. Little does she know,
but this is a pre framed interview that I’m doing with her.
I’m going to find out if she’s the type of person I would
truly want to work with.

I won’t think about throwing the amateur pitch at her. My only
job is to find out if she’s a good match for one of my next
success stories under my mentorship.

I’m gonna test her ability to carry a real, meaningful
conversation. I’m gonna test her ability to engage in explorative
questions, posture, smile, personality, etc…

Because I’m more concerned about what she is going to say, I’m not
really focused on what I’m saying. That’s the reason why most
networkers drop the ball in cold market prospecting, they are too
worried about what THEY are going to say.

Once you have a conversation going, you really don’t need any other
tips. You just let the conversation go.. oh, and you throw
just ONE more thing in there.

This is how I’m able to get there information and/ or give them
my card. I rarely, if ever, give out business cards to prospects.

I’ll talk about that on the next
post.

Please comment below and share what you feel most
uncomfortable with when cold market prospecting.

Stay tuned for next post. It’ll be a good one.

How to make money with your iPad

How to use your iPad to explode your business.

It’s easy to give into all the hype about getting one of the newest little gadgets to look cool at the next training for your company.

Do you have one? Do you make money with it?

 

Most people feel that getting a tablet (iPad or similar) is the
hottest thing that Network Marketers are getting right now.

That’s not the purpose of this article.
I’m not gonna sell you on the idea of getting a tablet here,
I’m just gonna talk some common sense here for a minute.

Here’s where it makes sense to get an iPad:
1) You already have a desktop
2) you already have a notebook / laptop
3) You are planning on doing lots of presentations / powerpoints
4) You are planning on doing lots of traveling.
5) You are needing to have access to a multi media powerhouse
that has great battery life while on the road.  (8-9 hours unplugged depending)
6) Your company has an “app” to access your backoffice
7) You like to watch movies on downtime in your hotel room. 😉

Let’s talk about how I use my iPad on any given day.

When I show up to a 1 on 1 presentation, I’ll use my iPad to show the
video to my prospect while I mix up some shakes. I’ve found that the
“over the ear” headphones work real well, because it now captures
their attention.

The iPad (as well as most other tablets) audio is fairly weak, and
tends to be pretty less effective in keeping attention. If you want to lose
a prospects attention really, really quick, use some weak audio.

After the video presentation is done, I will scroll through some REAL
life B&A’s (Before & After) photos and a few 1 minute videos
of testimonies both product and business.

This really drives the “social proof” part of my presentation through the roof.

I usually use “Keynote” (apples version on powerpoint) on the iPad to
put together a kick A** slide show of testimonials.

After I show them the slideshow pics & vids (that usually last 8-10 minutes),
I’ll usually have them frothing at the mouth to sign up.

I even edify my upline on those slides, so when I’m ready to get them on
a 3 way call, my upline leaders are essentially “walking on water”.

I then proceed straight to my iPad App that my company provides
to sign people up. Visalus even provides a credit card swiper that allows
process to be painless, quick, and nearly effortless so
It looks even easier to my prospects.

I feel that inputting personal data on an iPad or laptop looks a little more
official than putting it in over a mobile phone…but that’ s just my opinion.
If you don’t have a mobile enrollment app for your company
then you won’t even be worrying about this issue.

Following the presentation, I will use my iPad to schedule their first
Challenge party and send them an email straight from my calendar to
remind them about their appointment with me.  I’ll input their info on
my contacts and show them their appointments on my calendar.

It’s also really powerful for visual sake because they see my calendar
and how jam packed it is, so they know not to fool around with my time.

Obviously, to have that effect you need to actually have more than
1 appointment for the week scheduled. LOL

I will have them fill out my PDF “getting started training” with their
first dozen names so that I have a copy of it.
I’ll even email them a copy of that and also FWD a copy to my
upline leader.

I’ll go straight to facebook and add them as a friend, I’ll get
them plugged into the team facebook group right then and there.

By that time, they are absolutely plugged into the
system.

There you have it! That’s how a multiple 6 figure earner uses an iPad in MLM.

Here’s the bottom line:
Yes, an iPad can absolutely add to the effectiveness of
the way you run your business. You can add things like iPads (tablets)
to your list of business expenses that you will most likely
be using as tax deductions at the end of the year.

The bottom line (my opinion) on the iPad for those of you on the fence:
If you don’t have a laptop, and you are thinking of the
“either/or” situation, you shouldn’t even be thinking of getting
an iPad. The average iPad will run you about $600-$700 and up (for
a decent one that is even worth using) when in the meanwhile, a decent
laptop would run you about the same, if not a little more, but more
functional as an ALL IN ONE stop.

That’s just my opinion however.

I feel that in a couple years, laptops / notebooks will be pretty well
on their way of going out the door as being obsolete because these
types of tablets will have stepped up their game in functionality.

I actually stole that prediction from Steve Jobs himself…but it
feels good to say it anyways.

I haven’t really even covered a lot of the functions surrounding
the iPad and all the other ways it can help you attract more
money into your business. I’ll probably cover that on a future
post. Until then, KILL IT in your MLM business my friends!

Title Leader vs. Real Leader

Just because you recruited some people and they
did the same doesn’t necessarily mean that they SHOULD
follow what you are doing.

That doesn’t make you FOLLOW-ABLE just yet.

 

That certainly makes you “someone-who-recruited-a-few-people”.

 

Don’t get too down on yourself if people aren’t
following you like you would like them to.

 The best medicine for that is, LEAD THE CHARGE.

If you are constantly recruiting NEW blood to your team,
help them achieve the smallest forms of success over
and over again and you will have people who will follow
you to the ends of the earth.

Everybody loves to be a leader but very few are truly
willing to do what it takes to become that leader.

 

1)   Consistently Recruit NEW people.

2)   Show them SUCCESS in it’s smallest forms early in the game.

3)   Always let your team know that you are ALL IN.  Mean it.

4)   Formulate a great game plan, do it yourself, show your team how.

If you run this 4 step formula, it will dramatically
change the way you do business and improve your
results of your team duplicating what you do.

Get out there and KILL IT in your Network Marketing business.

The HARD truth about recruiting big numbers

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.

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 Whiteboard That Makes Networkers Money

One of the worse mistakes any serious network marketer can make,
is drawing out an action plan that you can’t take on the
road with you.

Bad move.

Here’s a powerful tool that I’ve been using for a while.

Watch this video below —->>

The Information Vortex

Some people think that online marketing, email marketing, video marketing, etc…
is a bunch of magical “hocus pocus”.

Infact, most people think that they would rather not do anything online
and just go completely offline and build a Network Marketing
company the old traditional way.

Here is my thoughts on that:

That could work too. Infact, there are people who are making tons of money
in MLM without the internet. Yes, these people built businesses offline
before the age of the internet & social media came about.

However, it’s possible.

I believe it’s harder in today’s society to build offline…
However, it’s possible.

The only major factor is making sure you don’t get sucked
into the “Information Vortex”.

This “Information Vortex” is something I refer to that describes
what most Network Marketers get sucked into and spit out of.

Let me explain…

Whether you market online, offline, or a combination of both,
you need to be able to have a system that spits out information
to your prospects as quickly as possible.

If someone beats you to the punch with information to your
prospect faster than you, you will most likely lose the game.

You need to figure out a way to get your information to them
faster then your competition. period. End of story.

What’s your system…

Here’s mine: http://www.truemlmresults.com

Getting Traffic vs. Converting Traffic

It seems like everyone and their dog is hyped up about getting traffic to their
sites nowdays. Seems like anywhere possible, people are posting their “join now link”
for their MLM company up on Facebook on a wish and prayer that someone will
join them.

It’s amazing how upset and depressed people get when they realize that they
don’t get a lot of response.

Some do. It’s amazing how some people actually break the code and make a pretty good
run from doing what I call the “Throw It Against The Wall” approach with Social
Media.

I have a woman in my organization who rakes in thousands of dollars a month from
customers and promoters who have joined up with her through her Facebook page.

It amazes me.

However, most people don’t realize that this lady is using a few other tools that
brings up her marketing response. She has amazing poise and posture when talking
to her prospects — and yes, I did say TALK to her prospects– not HIDE behind
the computer screen and hope they buy.

She also uses a few internet / mobile marketing tools that help propel her even
further into the mind of the consumer.

For most people, they are so interested in getting traffic that they will just
about sell their soul to the devil in order to get it. It’s kinda funny but
also kind of sad.

For example, there are many sites out there who get considerably more traffic than
my site. For example, a friend of mine and I were laughing about how he gets 10x
the amount of traffic than I do, but I have 100x the amount of converted traffic
than he does.

Consequently, I also make a tremendously larger income than he does. He probably
squeaks by with just enough to pay for his Pay Per Click costs, While I spend nearly
nothing on PPC.

Here’s the thing…

If you are attempting to have a prayer in online marketing / attraction marketing, you
need to stop worrying about pure traffic numbers and START immediately worrying about
what type of traffic / numbers you want to attract.

I’d much rather have 100 readers a day that come back everyday and re post my articles
online, opt in, and put money in my pocket versus 10,000 readers a day who spend
5 seconds on my site, never opt in, never repost my articles, and never put money in
my pocket.

Here’s your Challenge For Today:

Think about your brand. Think about the REAL YOU that you want people to subscribe to
online. Anyone can act like a Guru, but that never lasts. People want something
genuine. People want someone that can tell it like it is and show results.

Think about the message that you want to send to the world.
Decide today what your message will be.

Some of you will have a hard time. This is why you will need
my 7 Series Bootcamp.

Obviously, I use MLSP as a piece of my arsenal. I also recently threw in
Empower Network into the mix recently. No one showed me how to use either of those
tools. I just figured it out.

If you are interested in learning how to use Attraction Marketing, I will be holding
a 7 Part Bootcamp coming up.

Stay Tuned For That!

How To Speak The Language Of Success

Do you know that you are what you eat?
Most people know that…

You are also what you speak too.

Study after study has shown that if you have a larger
vocabulary, you are most likely making more money
than the person who doesn’t.

This one study showed that people with extensive vocabularies
most likely earn up to 3x what the average person earns
with an average vocabulary.

Think about a regular job… Maybe, think about your current job.
What type of vocabulary do you need there?

Think about a 6, or even 7 figure income earner in Network Marketing.
What type of language is being used there??

I’ll bet you that high 6 and 7 figure earners know another language
as well. Talk about Vocabularies in 2 different languages!!

Just think about this…

If you really studied your industry and your company,
wouldn’t you be using words and terms that most others
who AREN’T studying it would be??

If you are engaged in your company, opportunity, and
movement that your company is behind, you are probably
taking more action than most others as well.

If you are taking more action, you are probably getting
more results.

Here’s what you need to understand..

Success in MLM has a lot to do with personal growth.
Never stop growing. Never stop learning.

Here’s the assignment for you today:

Learn 5 new Vocabulary words that have to do with
either your comp plan, product, company, or Industry
and use all 5 of those words in your normal
everyday conversation when talking about your business.

Watch and observe the type of response you will now get
when talking to your prospects.

Eyebrows will be raised fairly quickly once you noticeably
step up your game.

When you start educating yourself and implementing that
education, you also start attracting those types of people
as well. Serious Promoters who are serious about building
their business.

Isn’t that what we all want in the first place??

Have some fun with it and start speaking the language
of Success.

Using Others Traffic To Boost Your Profits (Strategy #1)

If there is something that I’ve gotten pretty good at over the
Last few years in my journey to become a decent marketer on the
Internet, It would be “Learning to cipher traffic”.

I won’t spend a radical amount of time on this article because I do tons of
Webinars on how to “cipher” traffic anyway. Really, this article is for
Those that JUST read my blog (and you folks are awesome!) and don’t
Know what they are missing out on. [smile]

Do you often feel like a creepy, weirdo trying to chase people down
to visit your website or blog?? Let’s face it…
There are millions of websites out there? Why visit yours??!!

However, let’s discuss a couple of different ways to boost your traffic on
Your website, blog, youtube channel, etc..

That being said, most people would look at my youtube channel and see
That I don’t have much subscribers to my channel.
Infact, if you really look… I don’t even have much fans on my “fan page” on
Facebook. Currently, I only have less than 400 fans on my facebook page.

How do I go about making a hefty income on the internet
Without having tons of useless fans or random people on my youtube
Channel??

But I still make mad cash online! lol

Infact, some people in my prior MLM company got really nervous
when I was out there telling people that my online income was
surpassing my MLM income. Supposedly, I made waves.

So to appease them, I slowed down my online marketing.

Long story short, I’ll never make that mistake again.

I thought that was interesting…being that I was driving traffic to my
Company. Oh well. Onward.

So how do I make serious money online and MLM without having a TON of useless followers that hit like on my fanpage or hit play on my youtube
channel??

Because, I’m a list building specialist. I’ll take an organically built “opt in list”
any day of the week versus 20,000 views on my stupid
video on youtube. Not saying YouTube isn’t a legit source of traffic, it’s
just that most people have NO idea how to turn their videos into
cold hard cash in the first place.

One of my 8 figure mentors makes NO videos on youtube and could
Care less about it. Yet, this person has made more money than most
Could ever imagine in this industry.

I focus on building a list and turning that list into cash. How do I do it?

The answer: I cipher traffic.

I pull FREE (sometimes PPC traffic) from high traffic sources and
Direct them to my website (blog, capture page, etc..)

Why?? Because when I have an opted in list, I have a direct tie to their brain, their
Undivided attention, and emotional connection.

Once again, this is just my way of marketing. Some don’t agree with
My way. They say that they would much rather have massive numbers of
Followers to read their nonsense on their Facebook Page or video on one
Of the popular video networks.

I’d rather have emotionally attached READERS and converted leads rather
Than traffic any day of the week…hands down.

Most of these “so called internet gurus” have never built a sizable downline
In MLM and would shake in their boots at just the thought of getting in front of a handful
of real people who have real concerns and real ambition to make
Cold hard cash. Obviously, I’m not concerned with massive traffic.

I’m very interested in targeted traffic, loyal followers, and converted leads to cash. That’s it. Period. End of story.

Over the years, I’ve targeted some pretty good sources of traffic like other blogs, other peoples channels,
other peoples fan pages, other peoples facebook profiles, etc.. that HAVE the traffic that I need in order to
“cherry pick” my target market.

Here’s the ONE major secret that I will unveil to you today. We’ll discuss more of
This on a webinar that I will be holding in the very near future.

The way you can start driving good amounts of traffic to your site is:
You find other blogs that have a good traffic flow, facebook pages, etc..
(and that’s a BIG “etc”..lol)

And you COMMENT ON THEM.

Did you hear what I just said, just then?? COMMENT on them.

I have a feature on my blog where people can share my blog with others on facebook or in their other content
share networks like digg, tumblr, stumbleupon, etc..

Most people will comment WHILE they share my content on facebook. There are some websites that I
regularly go to where I comment and give actual, valuable
Feedback and attempt to answer questions to other readers.

In this way, I’m proving in a real world situation that I know what I’m talking about and provide a
sense of value to the online community.

Most blogs, like mine, have an area where you can add your website or blog
Along with your comment. If you have a wordpress blog, you can install a plugin
Called “commentluv” that rocks.

I will be holding a webinar regarding setting up your own blog soon as well.
Make sure you are opted into my list at http://www.truemlmresults.com
To get a heads up when I show you the blueprint of how to set up a blog
Within minutes.
Just think about the dynamics of this ONE little (but powerful) traffic ciphering technique.
Think about how cool it is if you have a blog that has 20,000 subscribers and another 5,000 of
driven, targeted traffic ALL reading that same
Blog post. Think about just 300 of those people “liking” the article and sharing
That article within their network of an average 2,000 friends “newsfeeds”.

That’s potentially about 40,000 people reading that random article. If you post
A comment that is valuable with your “hyperlink” to your site, what do you think
That will do for you??

Can you say.. targeted traffic, converted leads, and cashflow?!

Just one of the many, many, many ways to legally and happily cipher
Traffic and convert it into cash.

Broke Financially vs. Broke Mentally

In 2004, my wife and I were so broke it wasn’t funny.

We had NO savings, I didn’t have a steady paying job. 100% commissioned. She wasn’t working.
Sometimes I would come home with $200 dollar paychecks..for 2 weeks.

We made about $18,000 in 2004.

I still get emotional about this time in my life even as I write this post.
My heart gets heavy every single time.

Anyhow, back to the story..

A friend of mine told me about a government program that helped you
Out with groceries, diapers, etc.. (not welfare or foodstamps)
We’d be able to save money on other things because the government
Would be able to pay our bills for us.

I was clueless as to what this entailed. All I heard was some program where
You got free groceries and diapers from the store.

After applying to for this program, I thought to myself. “There has to be a catch.
There is NO WAY that we are getting this stuff for FREE.”

However, I was fine with the idea for the time being.

Our first trip to the store was interesting. I started throwing in all kinds of stuff
Into the basket thinking that I was on some kind of shopping spree.
My wife stopped me and said that we could only get certain brands, certain
Types of groceries, etc..

I was shocked. I was upset.

When we finally got to the check-out line, I asked my wife “so, where’s the money that they
Gave you?”

It was at that time, she reached in her purse and pulled out this gigantic pink
Brochure type booklet. I was wondering.. “What the heck is she doing?” as I nervously
Looked around to see peoples expressions.

I tried hiding what my wife was holding because it was a symbol to everyone in
Line that I was getting government assistance.

Now, let me say..

I have nothing against government assistance. Nor, do I have anything
against people who are on those types of programs.

I was just in shock because I was taught by my parents to
never, ever take handouts…especially Government ones.

It all hit me in an instant what type of situation I had allowed my wife and I to be
In. When we got into the car in the parking lot, I looked at my wife with tears
In my eyes when I told her, “we can’t do this..I can’t do this”.

She just nodded her head in agreement, filled with emotion as her eyes welled up with tears too.
She was a few months pregnant with our second child.

At that moment, I took that pink brochure / card and tore it up. We made a decision
That night that we would not take part in anything of that nature.

Some people would say that I was over reacting and being irresponsible as a
Husband and father.
Others (who I really look up to as entrepreneurs) were proud of me
And congratulated me in taking the first step to being financially independent.

I share this story because it weighed heavy on my heart as I stood in that same
Grocery store tonight behind a young couple who looked like they were going
Through the same situation as I was just a few short years ago.

I felt like reaching out to the young father and putting my hand on his shoulder
Telling him that if he rips up that card in the parking lot things will be
Different. Truth is, I don’t know if that will really be the story.

I don’t know if that young man will have the guts to take a stand
and have the courage to be financially independent.

If someone would have showed me where I would end up a few years
down the road if I decided to NEVER be “mentally broke”,
my mindset would have very different through the whole
journey. All my mentors TOLD me that I would arrive at my destination
if I took all the right steps (like that one) through the course.

If someone could’ve showed me what my journey would look like
before I hit the six figure income level, I probably would have
freaked out. It was a tough ride.

It will probably be a tough ride for you too.
I hope your ride isn’t as crazy as mine was but I sure hope it is
as exciting as mine was.

What’s funny was once you get to the $100K mark in MLM, you
aren’t willing to settle there. You always look at ways to get
you to the $1,000,000 level next.

In conclusion, I will say that each and every one of you
reading this post have the absolute power to change your life
and everything in it IF..and only IF you are willing to have a lot
of courage and guts to take a stand.

Just because you aren’t making as much money in MLM
as you’d like, don’t stop.
Just because you aren’t where you’d like to be in life,
don’t just give up. That’s too easy. No guts required there.

That’s the stupidest (excuse the wording) thing I’ve ever seen.
When people give up because they got a few or a hundred “NO’s”.
To think that they are letting others dictate their future just
boggles my brain.

Misery loves company. When I see people give up, it breaks my heart
but I can’t take that experience away from them. Some people need
to feel the bottom before they get hungry for the top.

Some people need to feel the bottom a couple or few times before
they start realizing that rock bottom isn’t any fun.

I can’t take that blessing and opportunity away from people.
I think of it as a gift. Of course I’d like to see everyone prosper
but I don’t know if that person is really willing to pay the price
like I was.

Never let yourself go broke mentally. It’s just not worth it.

So my challenge to you today is:

Do something that you have always known you’ve wanted
to do. Make sure this places you closer on your journey to
being successful in this business.

It might be something small like getting a savings account.
Maybe making that call to that person you haven’t called yet.
Maybe it’s getting that t-shirt or pair of jeans that makes
you look and feel like a million bucks when you wear it.

Success actually comes in an instant. All you need to do is decide
right now! Decide that you are a success starting right
now! Don’t talk it…do it! KILL IT!!!!

The 1 Thing You Can’t Teach

There are a lot of things in the Network Marketing industry that you can teach.
You can teach someone how to be persuasive.
You can teach someone how to be a superstar recruiter.
You can even teach a few slick lines to say when you get an objection.

However, there is one thing that can never be taught no matter how hard you try.

This one thing is the major advantage that people who earn millions in
The industry have above those who make thousands or hundreds.

Do you have any idea what it is??

It is COURAGE.

Courage is a tough thing to learn and implement. Learning courage usually means
That you are in an uncomfortable situation. Someone once told me that
The money is made in the “fear zone” in this business.

You will never achieve your goals if you aren’t in the fear zone.
Usually, if you are feeling nervous about something it’s because you
Are faced with a moment where you need to dig a litter deeper in your
Gut and pull out some of that courage.

Some of you reading this might be faced with a single situation or a
Series of “situations” very shortly that will test your courage level.

It’s what us entrepreneurs call a “gut check”.

Here’s the challenge..

Face something today that forces you to give yourself a “gut check”.

Rally up some courage my friend. The only way to get more courage…
Is to put yourself in situations where you can practice.

Although everybody wants to be a conqueror, many run the other way
When they realize a battle needs to be fought first.

Will that be you? Get out there and face it!

What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas…Sort Of.

I’m writing this blog post from my suite here at the Luxor. I decided to stay
here because this hotel really plays a pivotal part in my
Network Marketing career.

In 2002, my wife and I were dead broke and we had just gotten married.
We didn’t have a lot of money at the time. Infact, I had just gotten
fired from my timeshare job as an Assistant Marketing Manager.

I worked for a tyrant. My boss was hilarous though. It was almost
as if he was always hyped up on something. He Always pumped about
something. He was always looking for the next person to
fire. Usually, it was me that was firing someone.

He made me do the dirty work. It sucked.

One day, I found out that I was on the other end of the firing squad.

My wife and I got married a few weeks later. She was making $12/ hr. at
a small local hotel as a baker. I was unemployed.

We came out to our Honeymoon here in Las Vegas. We stayed at the Polo
Towers, an older timeshare resort on the strip. We got that hookup
from my mom since she worked at their sister resort.

I remember looking down the Las Vegas strip at a beacon of light that
illuminated the night sky. We headed down to that bright spotlight
and learned that it was the Luxor.

Because I was a big fan of pyramid structures, I thought that it was
so amazing. At the time, $200+ a night hotel rooms were way out of
my league.

But I told myself that If I ever made it in Network Marketing, I’d
make it a point to stay in the Luxor.

After 13 companies and never making money in MLM, I was about ready
to give up on the industry. I thought I was done. Finally, I found a
great mentor and friend who taught me how to harness my focus
and power in MLM and I started to make money.

In 2010, I returned to Las Vegas and stayed at the luxor.

However, now, I had thousands of people in my organization and
was a six figure income earner in MLM.

I attended a Network Marketing seminar called “No Excuses” at
the Bellagio Hotel.

Prior to “No Excuses”, I hadn’t really done that much marketing
over the internet. I discovered a whole new world at that summit.
That’s actually where I truly started gaining an interest about
online marketing, social media, etc..

I remember sitting in my room here at the Luxor
contemplating about how I was gonna start using that knowledge
to explode my business even more.

The next year, I attended No Excuses 2. Only thing was, I was
now making even MORE money and had an even bigger group.
Infact, I surprised myself at the level of income I was able
to generate online…even without my MLM.

Things were moving sooo fast in my career and I started feeling
a little uncertainty about where I was in my company at the
time.

I was staying at the Palms during that trip.

I jumped in a cab one night and headed over to the Luxor
again for some reason. I didn’t know why at the time.
I remember thinking to myself, “So what’s next? Where’s
the next move?” I was shocked I was even thinking that
because to most people I was doing fine in my career,
But throughout my life, I’ve had a gift of gut intuition.

Whenever I start having that gut feeling like big change
is about ready to strike, I start feeling that familiar feeling.

I didn’t even need to walk inside the Luxor. I just stood
outside looking at the Luxor Pyramid on that warm summer
night and then I knew it. Something was gonna happen.

Well, something did.

I ended up ending my journey with that company and
headed over to my new company. It was a gut wrenching
experience and it was tough emotional transition.

I hit the rank of Ambassador, which is the top rank in
this company, in just 2 months.

I walked away from a pretty hefty monthly income
and walked into Visalus without taking any MONEY,
any VOLUME..nothing!! zilch!

I signed an application and made my first contact
just like everyone else.

I then felt like the whole world was watching me at
that point.

A lot of leaders talk a lot of talk from stages about how
to build your MLM. A lot of stuff is said from company
leaders.

Granted, it’s all good stuff.

But, the question is.. Do they really believe it themselves?

Could they really build from the trenches again??
Could they really build from scratch and attain the
same level of success…or higher??

I was one of those people that trained a whole bunch from
stage, webinars, phones, etc..

The spotlight was now on ME.

It was on!

Since I’ve joined, I’ve never NOT been at #1 in every single
rank that I hit. Obviously it’s not luck. A lot of preparation
has been made to get to this point in my career.

I’m now packing up and heading over to Atlanta Georgia
where I will be presented with my Ambassador Jacket
and Bonus Check of $25,000.

I writing this whole thing while I watch the beautiful desert
sunrise from my hotel room here at the, you guessed it,
Luxor Hotel.

I write this because my heart is heavy of gratitude.

My message today is more about realizing that you need
to have certain bench marks in life that you are able to
look back at and realize how far you’ve come.

I look back at that broke 22 year old kid who didn’t even
have a job at the time, walking around in the lobby downstairs
in 2002.

The Luxor is ONE of my many “reference points” in my career
in Network Marketing. I have many more.

As that old saying goes, “How will you know when you get
there if you don’t even know where you at NOW?”

Create a reference point in your life. Say to yourself
“I will know I’m on track with my life when I am making
X amount of dollars” or “one of my mile markers on my
journey to success will be when I stay in ___ hotel by
this date.”

That’s my message today my friends.

Remember, KILL IT in your business. KILL IT in your LIFE.

KILL the excuses. KILL excuses not to succeed.

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!

When Business Slows Down…

There is a lot of material that teach & train you how to “get going” in business.

The initial boom in your business is crucial, no doubt.

However, if you are like most people there will be a point in your business where
things will slow down and not be as “exciting” and quick as the initial boom.
The question is, “What do you do now to re-launch your business??”

Here are a couple of suggestions:

1) Seek out your leaders and hold a conference call.
2) Get all of your leaders on the same page with you.
3) Run an incentive for your team. Helps production.
4) Bring an outside “speaker” for an event in your team.
5) Start talking to people that you spoke to before and tell them about relaunch.
6) Start a blog about re-lauching your business.

If there is one thing that is a guarantee in this business, it’s this…

Your business will eventually “slow down”.

It has happened to me and every other leader that I know.

You can’t continue to grow at 1000% growth forever. It’s just reality.
However, it’s about what you do when business slows down that counts.

That’s when the creative juices need to start flowing and you can’t
be afraid to jump in the trenches and fight the good fight right along
side your team.

It’s powerful because it keeps your skills sharp.

The second you stop growing…you literally start dying in business.
Don’t become a casualty of the “MLM Epidemic”. Stay busy.
Stay in Phase 1 until you have built an empire that is stable.

In closing, let me just say one thing regarding “slowed growth”:

Just as much as knowing what to do when your business slows down
is important…

Knowing when your business is truly slowing down and addressing it
is even more important.

If you are in a state of denial on some level of consciousness that your
business isn’t slowing down and don’t attack and address it, your business
will implode right under you.

Don’t be afraid to accept the fact that your business is slowing down
and just get to work on it. It’s all part of the game my friend.

Attracting People Into Your Business

Have you ever wondered how people can create such an exciting
business while it seems like everyone else recruits like mad
and still gets nowhere?

I used to struggle with this issue as well.

It’s tough to pursue and recruit people into your business.
It’s even harder to attract them.

Here’s how you do it.

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.

Take The Blame & Make The Money.

Taking the blame for someone elses failures.
I used to really hate taking the blame.

Then one day I realized that When things are going great, it’s your fault.
When things aren’t, going good it’s your fault too.

Then one day a mentor of mine asked me, “would you rather be right,
or would you rather be rich?” That was a simple answer for me.

He said “Because, there are lots of broke RIGHT people in the world right now.
Just get over it and keep moving. Massive production solves nearly all complaints
and problems out there.”
You can never let the finger pointing game get to you. If you sign someone up in this business,
they will try to set themselves up for every excuse under the sun. As long as it isn’t their fault
that they will EVENTUALLY fail, it’s ok.

 

So it needs to be said that when you get to the point where you are a true leader with a great organization,

the reason why you are a leader is because
everyone else needs you.

John C Maxwell, author of the “21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership” said that you weren’t leading
the charge as a leader, but rather everyone else was leading instead,
they wouldn’t need you!

Who are you fooling?!

It goes the same way with your prospects. If you let the blame game get to you, you will
always lose. You will never become successful in this business if you let the blame game
mess with your head.

The best way to deal with this is when someone signs up, you just simply tell them..
“I don’t know if you can do this or not, but if you follow the system and be coachable,
you’ll see results. If you don’t follow the system and aren’t coachable, I wouldn’t even
fill out an application right now.”

You see, the magic happens all throughout the process.

Enrolling the person is just part of the process. Your job isn’t done. At that point, your
job is just beginning.

As far as I’m concerned, all they’ve done was just fill out an application to work for me.

Because I have employees in my restaurant business, I know what it is like to hire
someone who’s all excited and doesn’t even show up for their first day of work!

Is it because my restaurant doesn’t work? Sure isn’t, because I know lots of people
who didn’t show up to their first day of work with large companies like Hilton, Wal Mart, Target, Macy’s, etc…

It doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.
It just means that THEY didn’t work.

So stop beating yourself up over the whole thing and when someone signs up for your business,
just remember…
Let them show up to day 1 of their job before you start getting serious about them.

After all, they are trying to qualify for YOUR time.

No Excuses 2 & The Golden Gummy Bear.

So here I am, back from the No Excuses Summit in Las Vegas Nevada. What an unreal
event. Ferny and Ray put on an event that is really pretty hard to top for that
price. It also helped that I was in VIP too. Better pictures, better opportunities
to network with other leaders, etc…

I took away so much from the event.

Here’s the difference from No Excuses Summit 2 versus NES1…for me.

Last year, I showed up and no one knew who I was. I didn’t have anyone
from my primary company there. I didn’t care because I had no Idea what I was
in for. It was all new to me.

This year I showed up, not as a General audience member, but as a VIP.
I already knew most of the speakers, a bunch of them knew who I was.

But you see, last year I showed up and I was thinking with a different mindset.
I wanted to learn how to make money online. I wanted to learn what it was they
were doing.

This year, I was looking for more specifics.

I was looking for tools. I was looking for tracking. I was looking for smaller, more
specific things that would give me a boost in my online marketing strategy. It’s
interesting how when you actually know what to look for, you always find it.

I found it.

I am now in the process of just starting out using just a couple of new tools
that will help me out with getting even more traffic and connections.

I will be blogging about these new tools in the days to come. It’s very reality
show styled. I have no Idea how to navigate around these site (you can tell)
but I’m learning right in front of your eyes. Stay tuned…

Ok, so the Gummy Bear.

I’m walking down the hallways with a box of Haribo Gummy Bears I just bought
from the store. Some guys stops me and asks me if he could have one.
I pour out a few gummy bears in his hands and we start chatting.
He was there at the NES2 as a speaker. I’ve never spoken to this dude before.
I knew who he was but acted as If I didn’t know who he was. He also asked
me for some gum. I was like “what? this guy is seriously starving or something.” lol.

We chat for a few minutes and he begins telling me about some things that will
rock my world in MLM and online marketing over the next few months.

From just those few minutes, I will go on to earn another $100,000 this year.

I thought about it as we parted ways and headed back to my seat, I spent
$3 bucks on this box of gummy bears. Over the next few years, that conversation
that stemmed from this box of gummy bears will most likely yield me some possible
7 figures. It was as if those gummy bears were made out of PURE GOLD.

Lesson learned:

you never know when the opportunity will arise where the answers
you are looking for will come right by you. You might not be in some crowded convention
room or Super Saturday, conference call, or high ticket webinar.

It could be in a quick conversation in some dimly lit hallway in Las Vegas over a box of
Gummy bears. Question is: will you be ready to receive the info and process it as such??

Success is when opportunity meets preparation.

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.

No Excuses Summit…And Events Like It.

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.

Why???

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.

It’s laughable.

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.

The List Myth

Whenever I hear the big list shpeel I kinda cringe inside because I know that most people
aren’t truly understanding what their upline is teaching them. I would go as far
as saying that most of the upline “leaders” don’t know what the heck they’re
talking about either when it comes to compiling a winning list.

Truth is…

many, many top recruiters have made tremendous amounts of money
from the “list” and have sat at tops of companies. There’s no doubt about that.
The question really becomes…”How did they build that list” that they’re contacting
people from.

Are they full of joe shmoes, average annie’s, or nothing-special norman’s??? NO.

I know that the internet “systems” gurus will say that it’s all B.S. and to just go
online and don’t chase after friends and family blah blah blah.

However….listen very closely. They’re still gonna be talking about you building
and recruiting from SOME OTHER LIST!!!

No matter where you turn, you’ll be building from some type of list and the
kicker is this: YOUR warm market (that the “gurus” will tell you to stay away from)
are most likely on someone elses list.

It’s about how you can get that list to monetize you. In addition, how to get that
list moving through your information in a very, very effective manner.
It’s obviously not just about “make a list of 100 friends and family” period, end of story.

It’s actual tactic, marketing, and Networking Strategy.

I’ll be discussing this in further detail in tomorrow’s post. Until then,
