Network Marketing – Tips And How To

Make The Most Money Like A Pro

"What would you do to make the most money in the least time, if you were starting over today?" I get that regularly. But the answer might not help you one bit. Because an experienced person for 5-10 years will have a perspective you won't have, as a noob. They have experience and contacts you [...]

How Clear Are You On What It Takes To Be An Entrepreneur?

Did you know that if you want to be an income-earning Network Marketer, where your income is at least $5,000/mo or more, that you would actually need to become an entrepreneur? Of course if getting your product free, or just $100-200/mo, you won't need to become an "entrepreneur". For those who want $5K/mo or more, [...]

How I Attracted Only Ideal Prospects…

In the beginning of my NM career (20+ years ago), I wrote some ads asking for people who wanted to earn $10,000/mo.  Just like my then-upline told me to do. What happened: I got LOTS of responses.  Yep.  But almost nobody who stuck. Next ad, I wrote something similar ($ was still allowed in those [...]

Do as they do…Maybe.

Do as they do...Maybe. But don't hold your breath for similar results in a similar time period. A coach to whom you paid $1.5K told you to: 1) contact people on FB, based on profile similarities, or 2) join relevant groups and make helpful contributions, offer to help some with their business. 3) then, connect with [...]

NEVER send visitors directly to your “offer”…

NEVER send visitors directly to your "offer" I mean the web page where you offer something for sale - be it your NM replicated web page, or the affiliate page you're promoting.   NEVER SEND THEM DIRECTLY THERE. Why? Because your business success is based on your list. And sending others directly to your "offer [...]

I know who doesn’t buy…

I know who doesn't buy... Three stories... 1) 25 years ago, we were marketing a kind of "fruits and veggies" in capsules. Archie was listening - Archie's first question: "What's in them?" Bingo. Archie will not buy. Not now, probably not ever. How do I know? Archie is lonely and wants attention. He's a talker. [...]

How To Advertise Your Product or Opp On Facebook

How to advertise your product or opp on Facebook... Best way: Do not. Instead, use what some call "Bridge Marketing." => Say you offer a alternative weight loss opportunity. Instead of pitching that (which isn't allowed anyway), do this: 1) "Three strange ways to lose weight without surgery or drugs..." (MANY options here) 2) Have [...]

OK OK I was wrong…

I don't follow up. Have never done that in 25-some years of network marketing. But that's changed this month...and you might be surprised by the reason... Back in the day, follow-up meant calling people - on the phone. I'd learned early on that "maybe's" were mostly someone's weak way of saying no, and it was [...]

Your company does not “make” you…

Your company does not "make" you. YOU make your company. I have believed that and taught it since my first network marketing company in 1988 - the water filtration company (now Juice Plus). Way too many distributors identify who they are by telling others they are a member of X company. Like so: "What do [...]
