Network Marketing, MLM, Affiliate Marketing, Internet Marketing, or Direct Sales IS Always Harder at the Beginning!

Think of all the forms of Marketing I mentioned in the title like a rocket taking off heading toward the atmosphere. The rocket expends more energy during takeoff and its climb to reach the atmosphere and then outer space than at any other time of its flight. Once it reaches the outer atmosphere, minimum energy will be required to manoeuvre or fly. This is true in Network Marketing, MLM, Affiliate Marketing, Internet Marketing, or Direct Sales as well. To get YOUR business off the ground will take a lot of your time and energy in the beginning. Once you reach cruising altitude in your business, it gets much easier. And you can bank on most people taking about two years or less to reach that cruising altitude.

Sure some may do it faster or slower. The main factor that will determine your time to reach that cruising altitude will be YOU!

The question is……do you have what it takes to get to where you want to go?

Most people just play around with dreams of getting “lucky!” Forget about luck! Successful marketers create their own “luck” by taking consistent action every single day in developing their “skill set”. If you want to have success, get off the ground first! If you don’t know how, contact me! I will help you build your business and provide the inspiration and training that you require to make your dreams come true. I don’t care what business you are in, I will give you a helping hand anytime.

When you start out in marketing you’re like a space shuttle loaded with tons of cargo. That “cargo” wants to bog you down and keep you from taking off. The amount of “cargo” that you have will determine the amount of fuel and thrust that will be required for rocket to take off! And if you are like most people, you have plenty of “cargo”. This “cargo” is doubt, fear, and procrastination. To lessen the “cargo” or get off the ground you must have fuel and thrust! This fuel and thrust comes from a burning desire, your “why”, your belief level, your commitment, and most importantly your “skill set”.

If your reason for starting a Network Marketing, MLM, Affiliate Marketing, Internet Marketing, or Direct Sales business is not strong enough to overcome procrastination, doubt and fear, you will crash and burn somewhere between take off and the cruising altitude…the outer atmosphere. There will be technical difficulties that must be rectified…and excellent piloting! Most don’t even make it off the launch pad!

You will also need a like-minded team to keep you fueled up and motivated to attain your goals. There is simply no other way. Your Network Marketing, MLM, Affiliate Marketing, Internet Marketing, or Direct Sales rocket never lands, you need in-flight fueling that comes from a team that assists with feeding your attitude and cheers you on toward your goal or goals.

That’s why I HATE the hype out there. The hypster’s play into your desire to have something for nothing; they play into your fear of selling, meetings, time consumption, and the must of contacting people. It’s in our nature to desire things without effort. You must forget that junk! You must work! You must expend time, energy and make contact with other people! You must be involved with a team that will cheer you on when things get tough! You must use a system that anyone can learn and grow their business with!

AND

Don’t get involved with anyone or anything that promises the way of ease because you will end up being very disappointed!

If you want to make it BIG, you CAN! It’s up to YOU!

I believe in you….YOU must believe in yourself!

However, if you don’t know where to begin, let me know. I am here to assist. I will plug you into resources that will help you grow YOUR business.

Know it’s always harder in the beginning. This will help you understand that struggling is normal, and it will get easier and more rewarding as you work at getting your business off the launching pad. Just fuel up, get on the pad and give it all the thrust you’ve got. Get your business off the ground and keep applying the power until you reach the outer atmosphere….your cruising altitude. When you do, you will look back and say, “WOW, is sure was worth it!”

Happy Marketing,

Network Marketing is Evolving! Are You Keeping Up?

Weather you like it or not, Network Marketing has evolved over the years and is continuing to evolve. Most MLMers rely on ancient strategies to “get people” into their business. That’s the first mistake, “getting people”. Getting anyone to do anything they do not really want to do is USELESS (time-wise and money-wise), because that person did not intentionally want to be part of your team in the first place…until they gave in to your persistent pest-like behaviour. Those types of prospects never usually last long in MLM anyway.

The other BAD mistake marketers make is that they don’t incorporate technology into their marketing businesses. They don’t grasp the power of the Internet, specifically the power of Internet Marketing. Internet Marketing allows anyone who might be interested in network marketing or any home business concept today, buy from them and perhaps even partner with them in business without running around trying to get strangers to say yes to their business while they’re completely not interested.

The right system allows you to attract dozens of leads into your capture pages, into your marketing training system and finally into your business. Even if the prospect does not reach a stage where they are interested in your business, the system puts them in your list for future use. All the while relationshipping with them. And by being part of your list you can then offer them anything in the future (even if they said NO to your business).

This is a concept I battled to GRASP for many years, “how can anyone (even someone on the other side of the planet) become capable of purchasing products or services from me at a reasonable cost and feed my advertising budget in the process?” It made sense when I started understanding the power of Funded Proposals…Funded Sponsoring and Marketing using Front End and Back End Affiliate Marketing Strategies.

This amazing system helped me realize that building any business, especially Network Marketing or MLM, is easier than most think it to be. Funded Proposals created right allow you to attract thousands of leads a month even if you don’t have tons of money for advertising……because in an MLM business today you must have a lot of network marketing leads added into your marketing funnel in order to convert them into business partners. Without an adequate number of them constantly feeding into your follow up system you would face a hard time to build your business no matter the opportunity in which you participate.

Generating your own quality leads is the answer to anyone doing business from home because they are better quality and more responsive. So it makes great economic sense to any home business owner, especially Network Marketing … MLM … Affiliate Marketing … Online Sales or whatever, to learn how to generate leads for his or her business. The best way to accomplish that is to figure out where your prospects….people that may be potentially interested in joining say ….. a multilevel marketing company……are…and advertise to them or use other methods to reach them. The purpose of your advertising campaign is to turn them into leads, people that give you their contact information and permission to approach them with a specific offer. And what we find is best is to not approach them about your offer. Approach them regarding how you build your business.

After that they are part of your marketing funnel and you are contacting them many times in a specific manner in order to relationship and friendship with them giving them information of value all the time. Doing this right, may produce new business partners.

Giving them something of benefit is the KEY!

What if you could show them a marketing system that works. A system to teach and train them to be a better marketer from home? This is the new way of growing your network marketing business.

Stop chasing Prospects and learn how to approach them successfully … better yet … learn how to have them approach you!

Happy Marketing,

Positive Thoughts Lead to Positive Success

Many times people do not achieve the business success they truly deserve because they do not think positively or are confident enough. They haven’t got a true life vision or formulated a plan to achieve their life vision. By their lack of “positive-ness” they sabotage their success. One decision. One small action. One step outside of their comfort zone. (Mine was getting over picking up the phone and prospecting). Any action can be the beginning of a series of decisions that leads to a FEELING and KNOWING of “I can do this” and ultimate success. Sadly though…..most people don’t realize they were meant to live a life of abundance!

For the next few moments imagine there are no limits to what you can have or achieve.

What do you deserve in your life? Let yourself drift…imagine freely like you did when you were a little child! Nothing is to excessive or preposterous!!! Take out a pencil and paper. Draw a circle. Put in that circle the most important benefit you expect to gain from being successful in your business. That is your WHY. Your “why” must be powerful so make it big! Draw eight circles around this circle. Place in each of them other benefits you percieve and expect to gain from being successful in business. Now close your eyes and put yourself in the middle circle.

Target that middle circle….really think and focus!

Imagine you have attained that success. Put yourself there. Everything in those circles is YOURS.

SEE the house you will live in.
SEE the car you will drive.
FEEL the feeling of accomplishment.
FEEL the admiration of your friends, family and business partners
FEEL the freedom of being in control of your life.

It FEELS good doesn’t it?

KNOW that it is ATTAINABLE! Know in every cell of your body that your ultimate success is INEVITABLE! Do not let a negative thought slip into your mind or a negative word utter from your mouth. Surround yourself with positive people who uplift you. Negative opinions or utterances of other people are NOT your reality. You deserve to surround yourself with positive people! Live each day POSITIVELY. KNOW that you are succeeding.

The possibilities for your success are limitless because they are within you. Hang in there. Persevere. Learn the proper Skill Set to take action everyday to move forward. Think positive. And success will come to you.

Happy Marketing,
