What I’m Learning About Massive Company Exoduses

Here’s what I’ve learned over the last year or so
about when leaders Jump Ship to a NEW MLM..

1. The exodus starts at the bottom, not the TOP.

The high rank leaders will usually follow their money. If they realize people are dropping out of their team and going elsewhere, they will try to find out the reason.

2. The power is in the MID LEVEL leadership.
the masses will follow the mid level because most times, the mid level level leaders are the ones working in the field.

3. The high rank leaders will sometimes “jump” with their MID LEVEL leaders if a substantial
part of their organization seems like they are leaving and agrees to keep organization in tact.

4. There are 3 different types of leaders that jump to new deals.
1) The ones that truly build organically and take NO money or volume. (this is rare)
2) The ones that take money and/or deal

3 Quick Tips To Attract NEW Customers For Your Business

Customers. That’s where it’s at.

That’s where “walk away, residual income” lives.

Here are 3 Quick Tips to Attract NEW Customers for
your Business:

1) Tell potential customers that you are looking for
a NEW “Before & After” project.
Comment: Believe it or not, most people love the opportunity
to be a part of any type of project, experiment, etc…
They want the opportunity to be recognized as well. If anyone
denys this, they are lying. Plain and simple.

2) Post a “major blowout sale” coupon on your facebook page.
No matter what, major “blowout” sales attract attention. When
people couldn’t care less, now they are curious about purchasing
your product for the “what if I really end up needing this?” clause.

3) Offer upsell promotions to your current customers. Offer free shipping
if they get 1 new customer. Maybe some type of cash incentive
if they get 2 new cusomters.

That’s it.

EC

p.s… I guess it should also be said that if you know how to correctly leverage
social media (Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc…) you dramatically increase
your chances of getting a steady stream of new volume. Here’s one of the best
courses that will teach you the PROVEN equation to get more new promoters and
customers through social media!

How to stick to your goals & hit it

If you haven’t figured it out by now, setting goals isn’t all that
hard. It can be challenging to set them because it takes a you
out of your comfort zone for a little while.

Let’s be honest though, how many people do you know that set goals
and got excited for a minute and fell right back into their
old set of habits willingly accepting failure before they even
started the journey??

We all know some folks like that.

Now, I’m no goal setting guru but I’ll share what has worked and
continues to work for me.

I set milestones for my goal and implement a Daily Routine
that gets me closer to that goal.

Let me quickly illustrate:

If I had a goal to purchase an $85,000 Porsche Panamera
in 12 months, I would need a solid 12 month goal to attain
that car.

porsche-panamera-01

First, I would decide how much money I needed to save for the
down on that car. Lets say I wanted to put $10K down, That means
every month I would need to set aside $833.00 to hit that $10K mark.

Second, I would need to figure out how much income I
would need to be earning in 12 months in order to afford
the monthly payments on that car.

Let’s say that the monthly is $825 a month and I’m already
struggling as it is to make my $200/mo. current car payment,
I’d need to figure out a way to be earning an extra $625
a month.

Now, here’s where I break it down to the daily operation:

1) Every 24 hours I need to set aside $28 up until D-Day
(when the purchase is made)
2) I need to figure out how to make an extra $21 every day
over & above my current income. That’s $145/wk extra.

3) If I got paid $130 for recruiting a brand new promoter / distributor
for my company and $15 for a customer, I’d be right on the money
if I recruited 1 new promoter and 1 new customer EVERY WEEK.
Luckily, in Network Marketing we are able to create compounded residual
income so if I built myself up to a “Director” in my company, I’d be able
to pay that extra $500-$800 a month given I maintain my rank.

I would then break down my “Operation Number”. That number relates into
how many people I would need to approach, send information, and follow up
with on a daily / weekly basis to hit my 1 & 1 goal. 1 Promoter a week,
1 Customer a week.

Now, I can very safely say… If someone is brining 1 new Executive Promoter
and 1 new Customer every single week (4 new promoters / 4 new customers) in
12 months in my company that person is easily at the $2,000-$3,000/mo.
residual income level.

Back to the illustration, if I need to talk to an average of 25 people
in order to recruit 1 new promoter that means I need to talk to 5 new
people every day (If I work my business 5 days a week).

If I can only work my business 1 hour a day… I need to be making 10-15
phone calls in order to be ACTUALLY TALKING to 5 people.

So….

Here’s my schedule

Monday: Job 9am-5pm
Business Prospecting: 5:30-6:30
Prospecting Goal: Expose 5 people to my business.
Savings Goal: Save $28 (Transfer into Bank Account)

Tuesday: Same thing.
Wed: Same thing.
Thurs: Same thing.
Friday: Same thing.

Saturday: OFF JOB / OFF BUSINESS ($28 Saved)
Sunday: OFF JOB / OFF BUSINESS ($28 Saved)

12 months later… you are sitting in your Porsche Panamera
$10K down, and $2K-$3k monthly commissions rolling in.

This is pretty similar to what these 200 Network Marketers
did over a 100 year run. Check it out here…

There you have it!

How to land 3 Way Calls LIKE A BOSS

The “3 Way Call Thing” not working for you?? I mean, it sounds like a great
concept but some people just CANNOT get someone on the phone with their upline
if their life depended on it! So… how can you make some simple adjustments
in prospecting to make the 3 Way Call work??! Watch this vid —>

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.

Why Visalus Promoters Will Cash In With “Project 10”

Project 10 Visalus

What’s interesting about Project 10 is that it has easily taken the
Spotlight for Visalus’s New Marketing Angle.

You see, every MLM company needs to change it’s marketing angle every
once in a while. I was feeling that Visalus was needing a different
angle of marketing the message since the Body By Vi 90 Day
Challenge has gained so much traction since it’s roll out in
2010.

Don’t get me wrong… It works. Just ask our competitors.

Let’s take a company like NuSkin for example. Here’s a company that
is obviously one of the Multi Billion dollar companies in the industry.
They started off in the early 80’s with their Non Surgical Facelift.

NuSkin promoters cashed in BIG TIME from that. It was a “new category”
launch similar to what “The Challenge” was with Visalus.

That run lasted for a number of years but they were smart on
their marketing angle and knew that when the market started
to shift in the late 90’s it was time to re launch another angle.

This was when you saw “SkyBiz”, an e-Commerce / Online shopping mall
website. This was during the turn of 99-2001 when the dot com era
was booming and everyone was running around talking about the
dot com mlm this and the dot com mlm that.

It was still under the Nuskin umbrella but they shifted with the
marketplace demand and changed their marketing angle.

When Nuskin realized that the “Nutriceutical” / wellness product
marketplace was on the revolution and people like Paul Zane Pilzer
was talking about the trillion dollar industry being in the
“Wellness” market, they rolled out another “arm” of Nuskin called
“Pharmanex”. Different marketing angle ALL TOGETHER but
still went hand in hand with the Nuskin message of “all around health”.

There are many, many other examples with other great MLM companies that
we could analyze and study but I use this analogy to further illustrate
my point that this is Visalus’s shift in marketing angle.

It’s my opinion that this is Visalus’s next BILLION dollar marketing
angle just like how the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge had become.

I may be wrong with this, but I truly feel that the Body By Vi 90 Day
Challenge will become the mother ship that hovers quietly over the
newer, more aggressive, more instant marketing arms like Project 10.

I feel like the word “Body By Vi” will become a word that simply becomes
“dated language” amongst promoters in the know and up to speed.

Already it sounds much cooler saying that you are a
“Project 10 Promoter” versus a “Body By Vi Promoter”.

Think about it.

Infact, it’s projected that we will have over 200,000 new challengers join
the Challenge in the first 31 days of the year just because of this
Project 10 Roll Out.

In a nutshell, Project 10 is a challenge that gives away $1,000 dollars
a week to 10 different people that can document through video and
submitting their information that they have lost 10 pounds on their
Project 10 Challenge. Gaining 10 pounds of muscle also counts as well.

If someone loses 10 pounds, they submit their information with video
documentation in their Project 10 Backoffice, but doesn’t get chosen
as one of the $1K winners, their name will stay in the drawing
for 10 weeks.

Even though this sounds exciting…

There are still a considerable amount of promoters who have no
idea how to use this new angle to explode their business. This
is where proven marketing tactics like the kind I teach
at True MLM Results come in handy.

I have a proven track record with what I teach simply because
it works.

Some people love to drive all the way across town to talk to
total strangers in a coffee shop. For some of us, that doesn’t
really appeal to us that much.

It’s much too easy to just post an article online and get
20-30 leads in a day. Not saying that the coffee shop method
doesn’t work obviously. I know people who make insane amounts
of money sitting in starbucks mingling with the crowd all day.

Regardless, Project 10 has already made a tremendous amount
of disruption in the industry as is.

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.

Great Leaders Aren’t Born…Only Babies.

I recently heard a story told by John C. Maxwell. He
talked about a group of tourists that were roaming around
this really old town taking pictures, taking in the sites,
talking to people, etc…

One of the tourists sat down at a bench where an old
man was seated.

Right as soon as he sat down, he asked the old man
“How many great men were born in this town?”

It took a few seconds for the old man to respond
and he finally said “No great men were born here,
only babies”.

The moral of the story is that so many times we as
Network Marketers idolize leaders who have created
a phenomenal amount of success in the industry.

We sometimes forget that these great leaders are
GREAT because they got really good at doing the
small tasks very well.

If you can’t wake up at 6am to get front row seats
at your convention, what makes you think you’ll wake
up at 5am to get on the phone with your prospects
2 time zones ahead of you?

If you can’t spend $99 for tickets to a company convention,
what makes you think that you will get an entire team of
people to get to events.

If you can’t make 1 phone call to your “chicken list” prospect,
what makes you think that you can teach an entire team
of people how to conquer their fears of talking to their
contacts.

Remember my friends…

Great leaders aren’t instantly created in this business.
They sign applications, make their first call, write their
first blog post
, shoot their first video, & get nervous
in front of their first presentation…just like many
of you.

Only NEW PROMOTERS join this business.

That’s it.

**LISTEN TO MY TEAM CALL**
Listen to me close out the team call using this story http://InstantTeleseminar.com/?eventid=31790397

****IMPORTANT****
Do you know how to cash in on BLOGGING like I do?? A few of my
friends will teach you 3 MAJOR tips on CASHING in on your
blog EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW JACK ABOUT BLOGGING!!

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 ONLY Thing You Get Paid For In Business

What TRULY pays you in business?

If you really think about what really makes you money in this
business, you’d probably be surprised at what you are wasting
your time on—or even NOT spending enough time on.

What do you get paid for in MLM?

• Dropping off brochures to your prospects workplace?
• Making cool little prospecting packages?
• Making blog posts?
• Facebook wall posts?
• Creating cool YouTube videos with great intros?
• Setting up cool product displays in your house?
• Going to trade shows?
• On and on and on, you get the point…

The shocking thing is that you don’t get paid to do any
of these things above. Here’s a shocker…You don’t even
get paid to prospect!!

Prospecting leads to more information…that’s it.

The only thing you get paid to do in this business is…

HELP PEOPLE MAKE AN EMOTIONAL DECISION TO BUY.

Oh, I can just hear it: “But Elias, we don’t sell anything!”
…get over it.
Yes you do.
You 1st MARKET, then you end with the SALE.

If there is anything you really need to get good at in
this industry, it’s helping people make a decision.

Over the coming days in future posts and videos, I’ll be
discussing some seriously eye-opening tactics on how to
get people to make a quick, positive decision to move
forward with your information.

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.

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 —->>

What are you doing with your time?

How is it that someone who makes a million dollars a year
and someone who makes $25,000 a year have the same 24 hrs?

They have the same amount of time in the day but
somewhere along the line, the person who is making $1M
realized how to multiply every step.

So for every step he takes, he moves 10 feet ahead of
the $25K person.

Think about this:
If we were both headed to a destination 5 miles away
but you ran and I drove in a car, Wouldn’t we both
have traveled the same distance??

You see, the reason why I make more money than most
in this industry is because I found out how to multiply
every step and value every minute.

Here’s your homework:
Think about how you can double your production in your
MLM business in the same amount of time you have put
into it last week.

I’m curious, message me and let me know your progress.

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!

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!!

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!

How To Create Excitement Out Of Thin Air…

Here is a video that I rolled out to my Visalus team that I’ll share with
you (my loyal readers) to show you an example of how to create excitement
amongst your organization out of thin air.

There are a few components..

You need to “Rally The Troops”.
You need to help your team feel like they are ALL engaged in a cause.
You need to lead the charge from the front.
You need to think out of the box and address the field (those who are working)
You need to RALLY with your group, NOT RALLY at them.
