Opportunities don’t come by every day but when one does, how easy is it to spot? If one fell in your lap would you know it? Say you were convinced that it was for real, how much would you be willing to invest? Some people are willing to whip out their wallet and place anywhere from a few dollars to hundreds or even thousands and sometimes millions for the right thing. The risk varies with every opportunity and the more the leverage the greater the risk. The person with the entrepreneurial mindset understands this and realizes the potential for gain increases with the risk. He also realizes that with the Internet network marketing opportunity there has to come commitment, a willingness to invest either yourself and or your money if you are to expect any return.

As an Internet network marketing entrepreneur you understand the business mindset, but the question remains how do you convey this understanding to others so your business will grow? Most people have a hard time seeing the potential in the Internet network marketing business model and find it hard to come up with the sign-up fee no matter how small. How do you get future team members to understand that without even a small investment they should not bother signing up?

Here are 10 things to consider when signing up leads that will literally save you countless hours and enable you to enroll the best people into your organization, people who will not hesitate to plunk down the sign-up fee. I selected these 10 guidelines from a webinar by Barry Burns on his 3-minute qualifier. I hope that they resonate with you as they did me.

  1. Spend more time talking to the right people and less time talking to the wrong people.
  2. Do not use a script, talk from the heart, do not use hype.
  3. Be upfront and do not hide the fact that your company is an MLM business. Avoid using euphemisms such as network marketing, friendship marketing, etc.
  4. Be proud of your primary business and state the name up front as the prospect might already be in your company.
  5. Ask them the qualifying question as quickly as possible. Here is the qualifying question, “If you found the business of your dreams would you have $500 to invest in it?” If they say no, you don’t want them in your business. Any answer but a Yes answer means No.
  6. Ask those that say yes, if you have their permission to give them a 3-minute overview of what you have to offer. If they say yes, then say to them, “If what I have to share is not what you are looking for, please tell me immediately so I don’t waste each others time.” What this essentially is doing is asking them to say no, which is completely opposite to most Internet network marketing sales pitches.
  7. Go on to briefly state some unique feature of your company. 
  8. Next make sure they know what your company’s products are, such as wellness products, cosmetics, etc. If they don’t have an interest in what your company sells you don’t want them in your business.
  9. After the 3-minute qualifier we start building the relationship and gathering hot buttons with the 10% who qualified by saying yes. Barry Burns use the 80/20 rule, which means that you spend 20% of the time asking questions while your lead spends the remaining 80% answering them. Reveal first and ask questions later.
  10. Your prospect will join if they can see themselves doing the Internet network marketing business successfully in their minds eye. Your job is to paint them a reality that they can believe in. For training information and strategies on on how to set up a sales funnel that will show you how to attract endless leads to your Internet network marketing business why not try My Lead System Pro I do.  For further training give Mike Dillard's free interview on attraction marketing and how he became a 7 figure marketer after learning about the power of magnetic sponsoring, a look see.

There has always been money in marketing. A good salesman is never without money to spend and a place to rest his head. The problem today in the network marketing industry is that most network marketers are without training or marketing skills and are clueless on how to run any business, let alone an Internet network marketing business.

The typical Internet network marketing entrepreneur looks around to see whom they can recruit. They are naturally drawn to people who are desperately in need of money. Typically most start by pitching their down and out warm market leads; old school marketing strategies of pitching your warm market still abound. How many of your needy warm market friends know anything about running a business? People who are broke are quite often broke because of the poor choices they continually make. Are those the type of people you want in your business. A good phrase to remember is, "Quit spending too much time with the wrong people."

To recruit a winning team is to recruit winners, people, that are already in a business and understand how an Internet network marketing business is run. You only want those that have an entrepreneurial mindset in your organization.

I watched a video today that illustrated this very well. There were two conference rooms side by side. In one there were employees and a recruiter goes in and asks them this question. "How many of you would like to make a living from the fast food business?" He is going to get questions like these. "What are the hours?" "What does it pay?" "Will I get health benefits?" "Will I have to flip burgers, or work behind the cash register?"

He leaves and goes into the second conference room filled with business professionals and entrepreneurs and asks the exact same question. "How many of you would like to make a living from the fast food business?" And he get a completely different response like, "What is the initial capital outlay?" "What kind of return on investments?" "What kind of training and support do you offer?" And the last and probably most important question, "When can I expect to move into passive income?"

This is not to say that losers can't ever succeed. There are countless stories of the classic “rags to riches,” in Internet network marketing, which causes us to take hope that some day we too can make it to the top. Two very successful network marketers that illustrate my point are, Ray Higdon, and Rob Fore. Both had made it big, Ray Higdon in real estate, and Rob Fore in network marketing, and both after going flat broke, rose again to the top in network marketing.

This of course illustrates a mindset, an attitude of success and it is best described in Mike Dillard's "Magnetic Sponsoring," where he spends considerable length on the roll of posture and how important it is in the success or failure of the Internet network marketing business. The question still remains, would you go out and hires a loser as a CEO for your multi-million dollar business? If not, then why would you recruit someone who was a business failure, to manage your Internet network marketing business, when with the right person you could be making a 6-figure income. For information and training on how to make a 6-figure income with endless leads, why not take a look at My Lead System Pro and what it can do for your network marketing business. For further training here are 25 marketing methods that will give your business a quick start, why not take a look.

Blessed is the person who likes what he does and gets paid while doing it. We hear over and over again of stories about individuals who make bags of money but hate their job, and can hardly wait to retire. If you are one of those individuals however, that love to write, why not turn something you like do into something that could enrich your wallet. What better way then by using something as simple as article marketing to maximize your time and get paid while doing something you enjoy.

 Maybe writing a best seller is what you really had in mind, well what are the chances of that happening? On the other hand if that were your passion, let me be the last to dampen your desire.

For those doing well on the Internet, article marketing can play a big role in many top earners arsenal of tricks. This strategy if used to round out a complete box of tools, can make a major difference in a successful home-based business.

As with anything done on the Internet there are a number of components that have to be put in place, but once things are up and running your prime concern is in creating your article and posting it.

Listed below are some of the steps that have to be put in place if you are at all interested in using article marketing as an avenue to greater financial freedom.

  1. Register and host your domain. Go Daddy for registering and Host gator for hosting.
  2. Use WordPress.org for creating your webpage. WordPress.com is not for serious businesses nor will it allow you any email accounts.
  3. Beginning with the construction, make sure your website is search engine friendly.
  4. As well as uploading articles to your blog upload to at least 3 or more article sites such as Ezine Articles.
  5. Be consistent and post an article every day if you want good article marketing success.
  6. There is total freedom for article content if posted to your own website.
  7. Check carefully the rules of each article website you post too. Many sites will not allow duplicate content elsewhere on the web or any articles on network marketing, be sure you read their policy first before you try to upload any articles to their sites.
  8. Keep your articles focused and directed to your marketing niche.
  9. Make sure that your article’s title matches the contents of the article. This is a turn-off for your readers as well as for Google.
  10. Use Goggle’s free Keyword Tool for the highest ranking and lowest competition key words. You can pay for such tools with more features but that may not be necessary.
  11. Make sure the keyword that you chose is in the first 70 characters of your title and is conveniently placed, but not more them once every 100 words in the body of the article. It should also be in the last paragraph.
  12. Branding is important and you should consider seriously what you call your blog site and your whole marketing strategy.

These are just a few of the things to consider if you would like to make some serious income using the Internet and in particular, article marketing to generate income. I have shown you the “what” you need to do, for a look at the “how”, take a look at My Lead System Pro to see on how the serious 6 and 7 figure income earners actually do it. And if you are really serious why not use Facebook to grow your business as many of the top marketers do.

Whether you are interested in network marketing or not, you probably know of someone that is involved in one. Most people are acquainted with someone, or they know someone who knows someone who is involved in network marketing, but they could care less. If asked to comment they would immediately say, “You mean one of those pyramids?” Meaning of course something illegal. Other then that the only time there is a negative reaction is when a friend or acquaintance falls prey to the guy drawing the little circles on the white board. This of course is cause for the usual shaking of the head and the sad look of pity, as they perceive that another comrade has fallen victim to the dream catchers.

And there are websites that expose the evils of the network marketing industry and offer support for the poor devils that have been brain washed into dreaming of a better life. They forget to mention the fact that there are perils in starting up any business and that the success rate varies little with either kind, as those in the network marketing industry are well aware. This does not stop the naysayer’s however, from putting up websites such as the, “MLM Survivors Club,” linked to a “MLM Survivor Rules” page. I guess rules are needed for survivors too.

The truth is never found by reading a book written by a frustrated or disillusioned ex marketer or anyone that has given-up. These kinds of books however, make the authors large sums of money, because they quite often become best sellers. Never however, listen to a frustrated loser even if he writes a good story. You want the facts, as seen through the eyes of a winner.

With that being said where does all that leave those who are still passionate about the network marketing business?

It changes nothing as there will always be believers and those that refuse to take network marketing seriously. For those of us who go to the events and listen to the webinars of the winners, the negative rhetoric need not have any influence. Even though the network marketing industry is sometimes given a bad rap, the critics fall silent when the 6 and 7 figure income earners such as Ray Higdon, Michelle Pescosolido, Rob Fore, and David Wood, etc. go on stage and strut their stuff.

Even though only 2-3% make it in network marketing the odds are not a whole lot different for conventional marketing. Let’s put it in perspective. How many of your friends in the last ten years have started up a successful business with as little overhead and are still in business. And if they did go out of business as most of them will statistically within the first five years, they won’t be out just a few hundred to a few thousands of dollars, it will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Hold on to your dreams and don’t lose your passion for a better life for yourself and your family. Network marketing is not for the faint at heart but as Ray Higdon says, “Discipline trumps talent,” keep focused and don’t lose sight of your dreams.

If you are struggling to get endless leads, why not silence the naysayer’s by taking a serious look at My Lead System Pro to see how the serious 6 and 7 figure income earners actually do it.

 And if you are into the social scene I can give you some excellent free training on using Facebook to grow your business as many of the top marketers do.

Old school marketing was not all bad at least for those that had the guts to stick with it and come out on the other side. An old school phrase that has stuck in my mind over the years is, “Anybody can do it.” Well I suppose that is entirely true if we were all made the same, but we’re not, and it seems that we all have to learn the hard way, to even be remotely successful in our MLM attraction marketing business.

 Let me illustrate how human nature is our own worst enemy. We attend a rally and are totally inspired as the 6 and 7 figure leaders share their success stories about how they got to the top. They share step by step what they did to make it, and then we are upset when we get home and nothing changes in our business. If the truth were known, we tend to pick and chose and wonder why nothing happens. It is easy to fall into a mindset that says winners are some how born with a slight edge, which attributed to their success. Which is true, but only if we refuse to follow their example.

 So what is the, “The Numbers Game,” and how important are numbers to any MLM attraction marketing business. This industry has had many phenomenally successful leaders over the years, and most of them will tell you that their success was directly proportional to the number of contacts they made each and every day. They will tell you that it’s all in the numbers; it’s as simple as that.  What we are really talking about is leads. Without leads and lots of them you do not have a business, period.

 What prompted me to come up with this post was after listening to Ray Higdon’s webinar, taken from his recently released “Master Sponsoring Series” on growing your own business. On One of his slides he showed what he does every day to grow his business.

Here is the list and you be the judge as to which one is the most difficult to carry off, but possibly the most powerful.

  • Create 1 piece of content every single day as a Blog, Article, or Video. (I can do that; I’m doing it as I write now).
  • Average 30 minutes per day on marketing. (I can do that if I get my act together).
  • Average 15-30 minutes per day on mindset. (A good idea but do I think it is important enough to really matter).
  • Affirmations, what he calls the why questions. (I will have to figure out what he really means by that).
  • Make connections with 20 people per day. (This is the real kicker and the one that puts fear in some hearts).

Doing this list every day put Ray at the top of his game. The question is who is willing to do what Ray was willing to do? It worked for Ray Higdon. Logic tells me if it worked for Ray Higdon it should work for anyone willing to do what he did. Stay away from the biggest trap for failure by thinking that all winners have a leg up on the rest of us.

 If you just started your MLM attraction marketing business or have been at it for several years, and now want to learn how to make connections with 20 people each day take a look at My Lead System Pro to see on how the serious 6 and 7 figure income earners actually do it.

And if you are really serious why not use Facebook to grow your business as many of the top marketers do. Why not give your business a solid test drive and see what might happen in the next 6-months.

Go to any fair come fall and you will immediately know what I mean when I mention the word “pitch.” Who hasn’t been fascinated enough to stop and listen to some smooth talking hocker as he pitches his widget at the local County Fair. You are not even home yet when you realize that the widget you just got sucked in to buying was a waste of your hard earned money. You have to agree there is a certain fascination in watching these guys pitch there wares at the County Fair, they sure have selling down to a science, but make no mistake, what works at the county fair will not necessarily work for your MLM business opportunity.

To day the consumer is altogether wary, as we have been sold to the point of exhaustion. Twenty years ago selling door to door was still a popular way to earn a living, and many companies used that model successfully. I had an Uncle who went door-to-door selling books in the 30’s and the last house of the day would feed and put him up for the night. Go figure that! Times have definitely changed.

Successful marketers today have learned that the traditional methods of yesterday do not serve any useful purpose except to turn off potential customers and make their own lives suck. We naturally shun pain and are drawn toward pleasure. Very few people have the personality to endure the pain of rejection. What this means is that even if you are the exception and have the personality to convince someone to join your mlm business business they probably won’t, at least not for long.

Have you ever been pitched? How did you feel? All of your friends if you still have any left felt the same way when you pitched them your mlm business  opportunity.

Here are some pointers that all successful attraction marketers use to explode their MLM business opportunity with, and you can expect the same results too, plus you will have pleasure while doing it. 

1. The number one reason attraction marketing really works is that it follows the principle of giving value before you receive anything yourself.

2. Never pitch your mlm business opportunity. That may have worked 20 years ago but not today, at least not in any mlm business opportunity of today. Marketing is engaging people into your sphere of influence in such a way that they come to you for what you can offer. Selling is trying to convince them, to buy something that they don’t realize they need. The main difference is that in one instance they are drawn to you, but in the other you are aggressively pursuing them. This applies to any of your contacts whether you are using the social networks, blogging or a one on one.

3. Qualify, qualify, qualify, and if not before, the sooner the better. Do not make it sound easier then it is or they won’t stay in without major effort and you want a team that is self-motivated.

4. Do not beg or appear desperate. This is where posture comes in. Alpha leaders never come across as desperate. No one will give a desperate person the time of day and will run from you if you try to pitch your mlm business opportunity.

5. Do not sweet talk. A good salesmen if given enough time could sweet talk just about anyone into his or her mlm business opportunity, but that person will probably quite soon enough because of the pain. A question was asked of the top money earners in the mlm industry as to what they did wrong and they said, “They spent too much time with the wrong people." 

6. I have included this last point in other posts but it is extremely important if you are using a system like My Lead System Pro to generate leads for your primary business. Do not scatter you shot. MLSP has so many options to generate leads that you can just sit and spin your wheels. Find one that works for you and stick with it before you try something new to quickstart you mlm business opportunity. Only then add new options but never at the expense of those that are already doing well in their mlm business opportunity.

For more training and information in marketing your mlm business opportunity take a look at a free Mike Dillard interview on attraction marketing and hear how he became a 7 figure marketer after learning about the power of magnetic sponsoring.

Content Marketing: Your First Article

http://bobthetoolman.com/content-marketing-first-article/Its time to begin your first article and frankly you are feeling quite overwhelmed. Writing is not your first love or is it your greatest talent but after giving it quite a bit of thought you decided you wanted to give it a try as you heard some of the biggest success stories did quite well by using content marketing.

If the above paragraph summarizes your thoughts let me share with you some of the basics for content marketing. Hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.

I would like to discus four things that are basic to getting it right the first time. Take care of these five essentials and you are well on your way to becoming a copywriting and content expert.

  1. The Title: The title should be one that grabs. It should not be boring, too clever or cute, but should convey real benefit.
  2. Copywriting: This has to do with writing copy that draws people into your content. Good copywriters are few and far between. To become a skilled copywriter you need training and practice to refine your skill. There is a formula to the way it is done. A science to pull the reader in and a call to action.
  3. Content: For content marketing to really work you have to remember it is all about giving value and in the richness of what you have to say. Getting attention at least from the social sites by being bratty or controversial does not necessarily translate into readership or sales. An important thing to always keep in mind, does what you have to say make the reader want to come back for more. Will he in fact want to bookmark your page?
  4. Be Generous: Do not be afraid to give away content. When your generosity makes you feel a little uneasy it means you have the right mix.
  5. SEO: Write for content and not seo. Remember if you try content marketing, that content is truly king. Craft your article for its content and then go back and tweak it for the search engines. Your readers will be glad you did and so will the article marketing websites that you publish your articles on.

Remember to keep a balance between the two, you do not want to have a page with brilliant copy but once the reader gets there he is left with nothing to keep his attention because of a lack of value in the content. On the same token you could have incredible value but because of poor copywriting no one is drawn into your page and there is no call to action.

After your article is written, click here to learn how to position it properly so it can make you some money.

If you are just beginning or have been struggling for lack of leads, take a look at My Lead System Pro to see how the serious 6 and 7 figure income earners actually do it.

It has been said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” That being said, it still might be totally new to you. And for you the phrase, “mlm marketing tips,” could be a life changing experience by profoundly changing your life, especially if you are a struggling network-marketing entrepreneur and are just getting started.

I do not pretend to be an expert but I have been in the network marketing business long enough to pick up a few things that might be worthwhile for you to ponder. Below are some MLM network marketing tips that if applied to your business might make a major difference.

There are hundreds of reputable network marketing companies out there, do not fall for the hype when told “Ours is the best, it has the best comp plan, the best product, the best leaders etc..”

  1. Look for a company that has no objections to using one of the many attraction-marketing systems such as MyLeadSystemPro, to funnel leads into your business. Avoid if possible the pain of warm market recruiting, which quickly turns to cold contacts and expensive leads as you quickly sift through your warm market in a matter of weeks.
  2. Do not scatter you focus, as there are many tools in the attraction marketing tool bag. Pick one that fits you and stay with it until you have mastered it. Then go on to the next one.
  3. Get started immediately by using one of the following leads training tools that are part of the attraction marketing tool bag: article marketing, video, Face Book, Twitter, PPC (Pay Per Click). As I said these are just a few of the tools that attraction marketers are trained to use to generate 6 and 7 figure incomes in attraction marketing.
  4. I can’t stress enough the need to buy educational and motivational tools such as computer software for marketing, and books, and cd’s, as training material to keep motivated. As well as the weekly conference calls and or webinars. Without motivation most network marketers eventually give up.
  5. I have mentioned this before but it can’t be overly stated, have a daily do list and do it daily. Don’t bite off more then you can chew, however, as what works for someone else might not work for you, but be consistent.
  6. When leads start coming in, always do a follow-up. After all of the time and effort to get a lead, why throw it away. Foolish indeed.
  7. Always be positive, never criticize and always be ready to affirm, and give a helping hand.
  8. This leads me to my next point and it is the basis for attraction marketing and why it is so powerful. If you first bless a person by giving away something of value, you in turn will be blessed as they respond. That is how attraction marketers grow their businesses.
  9. Remember not all, but most network marketers struggled to get where they are, and are where they are, because of consistent daily action. You too can be one of the top 3% if you take to heart these ten MLM marketing tips. So don’t give up.

For further training with a complete marketing sales funnel, why not give My Lead System Pro a try. This could literally mean your success or failure. How serious are you in the success of your MLM business opportunity?

Network Marketing The Pain Free Way

It will not be debated by anyone if asked to choose between pleasure or pain. Today more then ever we tend to choose the path of least resistance, the road that offers the least pain or inconvenience. For most people pain is something to avoid at all costs. Is it any wander why so few succeed in the network marketing business?

Historically pitching a product in traditional network marketing was restricted to the old school style of marketing. What that meant was that it was the traditional sales pitch, a proactive attack on some unsuspecting soul. It could happen to a friend, acquaintance or stranger that chanced to get within the proverbial arms length and was thus a potential lead. This was cause for the flight or fight mechanism to really kick in and created incredible stress for the network marketer. Talk about pain, this was far more pain then most could endure and after a few weeks business was over.

To grow a business, or make anything succeed for that matter, the pleasure of future success and the rewards it offers has to be equal to or exceed the pain of failure. What that translates to in the world of the network marketer is a method or system of network marketing that keeps pleasure and pain in the proper balance. If you can’t paint a picture and provide a system that does this, it is not duplicable and you are soon out of business.

What complicated selling for a network marker was that until recently, much if not most of the training came from the companies at their annual rally. This usually consisted of the traditional product hype and sales opportunity that the company offered and a pitch about the company founders and the unique virtues of their product, things that most marketers could care less about.

What gives most marketers pleasure is how to make money, and how to better their lives. Recently a method of marketing has arrived that does just that and it is pain free. Not only does it offer a pain free marketing funnel, but also a system that offers multiple methods tailored to the individual preferences of the marketer.

Today some of the methods that will fit right in with the My Lead System Pro sales funnel are video marketing, article marketing, Facebook, PPC, Twitter, and the list goes on.

If you are a serious business builder and really want to grow your network marketing business the pain free way, give My Lead System Pro a try and enjoy how pain free network marketing can be.

You are reading this because you either love or hate the network marketing model. Historically multilevel marketing has been erroneously lumped in with the shady operations of the illegal pyramid scams, because of its pyramidal structure. It is not the structure of the illegal pyramid of yesteryear however that defines them as fraudulent, but the fact that they were a money-making scheme that was based on a non-sustainable business model and many times without a legitimate product or service being delivered. These schemes were non sustainable and still are, and most people lose their money.

 Today as people see the thousands of companies that still use the the pyramidal business model to market their products directly to the public, most people realize that, the argument is no longer valid. What has lessened the stigma even further are such reputable and well-known companies such as Avon, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Herbal Life etc. and the list goes on. Whether one realizes it or not, and I must repeat it again, these companies all have one thing in common, and that is, they still use the pyramidal business model and have been doing so from the getgo. If the MLM business model was proven to be illegal why does the “Largest List Directory of MLM – Network Marketing Companies,” currently list more then 1500 legitimate MLM companies in its US directory.

 Another erroneous belief about network marketing that is currently held, and I have been told personally, is that because of its pyramidal structure only those that get in first, have any chance at all of making any money, as it will collapse for lack of people to recruit.

 This is just another paper argument, and is without basis and you can use it against any business. How many new McDonald franchises can any city, country, or the world for that matter sustain? That does not seem to stop a new McDonald’s from popping up on just about every corner.

 Whether you love Amway or hate the company, bare with me while I use them to again illustrate my point. Amway was founded as a network marketing company in 1959 by Jay Van Andel and Richard DeVos. Based in Ada, Michigan, the company and its family companies reported a sales growth of 9.5%, reaching US $9.2 billion for the year ending December 31, 2010. Amway was ranked No.114 among the largest global retailers by Deloitte in 2006, and No.32 among the largest private companies in the U.S. by Forbes in 2010.

 After viewing what Amway has done in the last 53 years, you can see there is room for incredible growth. Now with the advent of the Internet, which opens up the world as an instant market place, there is no lack of potential leads for any online business. The latest world stats for global Internet users as of December 31, 2011, listed on the “Internet Word Stats” webpage was just under 2.3 billion people. It will be a few years before we run out of leads.

 If you are someone who has always believed in the network marketing model but have not been able to make it work as yet, I have something that you might want to take a look at. It is a free interview by the father of attraction marketing Mike Dillard who went on to become a 7 figure marketer after learning about the power of magnetic sponsoring. For further training with a complete marketing sales funnel why not give a try. This could literally mean your success or failure. It takes Mike Dillard's attraction marketing and pushes it to the next level.
