Unicity International – The Home Based Business Choice in the Wellness Industry

Ok so here’s the deal….everyone in the home based business arena MUST have a Wellness tangible product based business. You can be making all the money in the world, however without your health what have you got?

In my opinion the Wellness Arena will just continue to get larger and larger. It’s what will continue to create millionaires in the future. And that wellness business better fall inside these 8 criteria, which I developed for myself and hope they assist you. I learned my lesson the hard way and after 8 long months of investigations, I don’t want you to!

How I found Unicity International from my 8 Criteria for the Wellness Industry…..

1. Must have a weight loss and energy drink component as part of their product line.

2. Must have a rank based economic plan. Very similar to corporate America wages and bonuses. As you advance your business you earn substantial one time cash incentives. Seed money for long term growth! Most companies don’t have anything like this!

3. Must have Science behind the product line. Like clinical trials and placebo testing done by the company and credible institutions. Like Stanford University and the Cleveland Clinic perhaps. Not just by going to places like pub-med and pub-org to research ingredients.

4. Must be a company with a global reach. With an office in each country and licensed in each country.

5. Must be a company at least 10 years old. No start ups or what if’s.

6. Must have a corporate team or owners who have previously worked in the field themselves and built a successful network marketing organization.

7. Must have the Ability to grow the business online and offline professionally with your own marketing tools and the company’s.

8. Must have a minimum global sales of 350 million per year.

These 8 criteria helped me evaluate over 130 Wellness based company’s, to find the true long term diamond in the rough…Unicity International!

Unicity International is a two decade old 350 million dollar global preventative health care company that is still a secret here in North America. And what blew me away is 30% of our Franchise Partners are physicians. Here’s a video I had Stewart Hughes, Unicity International’s CEO create for me. Stewart Hughes has become a friend and a mentor of mine and what he shares here is quite simply the best opportunity in the Wellness Industry.

  • Gerry, I hear about a lot of different weight loss programs out there because people ask me what I think as a dietitian. My most frequent response is….if the program limits calories below 1200 per day, don’t do it EVER because it will only lower your metabolism and send you into yo-yo dieting. A lot of the programs with packaged food limit calories to less than 1000 calories. NOT GOOD!

    All your advice for choosing a great company is right on!

How to watch Flash videos on iPad or iPhone

Are you looking for a flash player for your Apple device? Well, you need to know “Adobe has not created a version of Flash for any iOS devices”, because iPad does not support flash, they think flash is on the way out and HTML5 is a much better option. Well I must tell you I am a PC guy who recently converted to the iPhone from Black Berry. But don’t worry, there are ways to solve the problem, such as downloading web browser apps for your Apple device. Here are a couple must have apps from the APP Store.

1. Puffin (thanks Liza for sharing this one!)

The Fastest JavaScript Engine Puffin Browser, with it’s revolutionary JavaScript engine and cloud computing technology, is faster than the built-in browser by up to 550% … No other browser even comes close to Puffin Browser’s speed.

And there is a FREE version to try out….

2. Skyfire Web Browser

Skyfire is a web browser that can run flash content on iPhone and iPad. It supports various types of websites and flash videos from the internet. So it’s kind of flash support for your iPad or iPhone.

Setting Goals & Resolutions in a 3 Step Goal Setting System

First let me share my opinion….Most New Year’s Resolutions Fail!

95% of people fail to achieve their New Years Resolutions. Your probably asking why? So what can be done to ensure we’re part of the elite 5% of people that actually do achieve their New Years Resolutions? This article explains, in my opinion, why most New Years Resolutions fail and what you can do to to increase your odds of makeing your goals a reality!

Because these “resolutions” are typically goals, rules or regulations we consciously impose upon ourselves. These resolutions can sometimes just end up being glorified “to-do” lists. Put simply, the techniques used by most people to set goals are ineffective and hence failure is the most likely outcome.

Research in the field of neuro-science indicates that at least 95% of our day-to-day actions are unconscious. This is quite alarming yet extremely useful to know. Knowing this statistic gives a nod in the direction as to where the solution to our perennial New Year’s Resolution problem lies. “Resolutions” that are merely consciously made without being more deeply embedded on that deeper part of our mind i.e. the unconscious mind, are likely to end up on the mountainous scrap heap of unfulfilled New Year’s resolutions and unachieved goals.

Setting Goals is an Art Form

Be fanatical about writing down your goals – daily, weekly, yearly, etc. You’ll find it useful for keeping yourself on plan and keeping abreast of where you’re at. However useful these goal tracking mechanisms are, you’ll find that these tracking methods are not so useful when it comes to setting goals.

Setting goals is an art form.  Done properly it requires a much more sensory, full of visions, emotions and actions than the usual plain listing of goals with deadlines allow us.

Turning the Invisible into Visible

In our day-to-day life, there are invisible forces at play. The world is not really as people think it is. There’s much more happening to us than we see and there’s much more potential within us then we truly realise. In a way true goals are uncovered rather than set. True goal setting is about turning these invisible forces into outcomes, enabling you to have a deeper, more meaningful relationship with life. Taking the following 3 simple steps will serve you better than any list of resolutions or goals ever will.

Step 1 – Make a Mental Movie

Sit down at a clean uncluttered desk in a room with no distractions. Take some deep breaths and look inside your mind, feeling around for both short and long term goals you have knocking around. Forget about what goals others are setting for themselves. Focus only on what you feel is important to you based on your priorities and values. Now, take a blank copy book and start writing down those things you feel you’d like to achieve in 2013 and the reasons why.

Most people are familiar with the use of vision boards as popularized by The Secret and The Law of Attraction. A Vision Board is just a poster or foam board onto which you paste images of thing you want to have, do or be. Well, a mental movie is like a vision board except it’s a rolling picture, complete with sound, feelings, tastes and smells, played out in your mind’s eye.

If you’re not sure how to go about writing these goals down, the following method may work for you. Start by describing the desired goal/scenario in the context of what you See (scenery, people, things etc); what you Hear (sounds, voices etc); what you feel (emotions, textures, sensations etc); what you can Taste and what you can Smell.

Most people write goals as one-liners on a piece of paper but in order for goal setting to be truly effective you need to bring all your senses into the creation of the goal and develop a mental picture completed with accompanying feelings of what it would feel like when you achieve that goal. This is a bit of a Jedi mind trick to be honest. You’re trying to trick your unconscious mind into believing the outcome has already occurred. To do that you need to overload the senses so that the movie kind of spills over into your unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is non-reasoning. It can’t actually tell the difference between whether something’s right or wrong and something that’s happened and something it thinks has happened.

So, as a result of doing this “mind programming” your unconscious mind dictates your conscious actions so that you start behaving and doing things as if you had already achieved that goal. So, for instance, if you managed to successfully install the program of you being fit and toned looking deep into your mind using the techniques outlined in this article, your behavior will actually change despite yourself. You’ll stop reaching for the nachos and beer, maybe go for a run, have a slim or a delicious shake instead or pump some iron down at the gym or in your home.

It’s really about creating a movie in your mind (like the movie I have shared here with you) as you’re essentially giving yourself the opportunity to direct a movie of the ideal circumstances for your life. There is little point in forcing yourself to do something you fundamentally don’t want to achieve. You need a compelling, burning desire blazing inside your mind and vibrating in every cell of your body. If you’re sort of not really excited about the goal in the first place you set for yourself you really won’t achieve it so why waste time setting goals you’re not absolutely 100% jacked up about.

Goal Setting Sub Conscious Movie How To

 

Step 2: Get in a Relaxed State Often and Enjoy

Far too much traditional goal setting and achievement require force – serious physical or mental effort. People essentially beat themselves up over their goals. This is a crazy, ineffective method of setting goals. The easiest way I know of achieving any goal is getting a clear mental picture of the outcome, relaxing deeply and enjoying the possibility of the outcome. Add a large attitude of desire and your there. It’s game over. If you can replay your mental movie or “program” in this state of deep relaxation, your outcome becomes imprinted deep in your unconscious mind.

Deep relaxation is a natural state just before you go to sleep or when you wake up. It is said your unconscious mind is most receptive to receiving programs i.e. goals/outcomes at this time. Ironically enough, relaxation and being energized go together. Through deep relaxation, you get to connect with your deeper self, your true nature. As a result you become self-motivated and cease following programs given to you by society.

 

Step 3: Install the Program, Rinse and Repeat

Now that you’ve done your homework in Step 1 and understand the purpose of achieving a state of relaxation in Step 2, you’re ready to install your Goals/Resolutions. All you must do here is run the mental movie (or program) you created in Step 1 through your mind in this deeply relaxed state.

Play it in your mind just like you would experience a movie. See, Hear, Feel, Taste and Smell the desired goal as a complete experience, as your compelling future, as if it is happening to you already. Engaging all the senses in this relaxed state allows your mind to virtually take a mental photograph of the desired outcome and imprint it onto your unconscious mind for future use. Once the “picture” is taken by the unconscious mind, the material is then accepted by the conscious mind as true (it may or may not be), and dictates our day-to-day actions and behaviors that lead us toward the desired outcome.

Don’t do this “installation” exercise only once. It’s really vital that you produce this in your mind by consistently repeating this installation exercise for at least 21 days in a row. Indeed, ideally you could try doing it every day for the remainder of your life and upgrade your program along the way as your life improves.

Many professionals have indicated it takes 21 days to make or break a habit; that’s if you develop the habit of doing something 21 days in a row you will keep the habit. According to Dr. Maxwell Maltz (who first introduced this science), brain circuits take engrams (memory traces), and produce neuro-connections and neuro-pathways only if they are bombarded for 21 days in a row. Or to put it another way, habits become hard-wired into your unconscious mind after constant repetition.

So, for the first 21 days of the year, repeat this installation exercise –  find a place and time you can relax for at least 30 mins (possibly either just after you’ve woken up or just before you go to sleep) and run this movie through your mind each day.

This technique is beguiling in its simplicity but immensely powerful and life-changing if utilised properly. I’m a big believer in writing down your goals on a piece of paper and beside each goal the reason why it is important to you. This is a fundamental basic requirement of goal setting. If you do this alone, you will increase your chances of success.

However, if you want to increase this “chance” to being a near “certainty” than you’ve got to deeply imprint the goal and its emotional outcome onto your unconscious mind and believe without doubt that you can achieve it.  In a way, this technique goes way beyond traditional goal setting and motivation and more towards self-realization.

Either way, whether you simply want to achieve some essential goals this year to move your life forward or want to connect with your true nature and fulfill your life’s purpose, the technique outlined in this article holds the keys to the vault to achieving your New Year’s Resolutions and all goals in life.

Network Marketing / Direct Sales / MLM Compensation Plan Comparisons

First let me state….in my opinion….that Network Marketing, Direct Sales and MLM companies that pay on levels are MLM. I will refer to them as Network Marketing. So, when looking for the right Network Marketing home based business enterprise, there are many factors to consider for your own personal preference. One of the most important factors when looking, in my opinion, is the compensation plan.

Do you ever feel like….some compensation plans are just too difficult to understand. I mean, sometimes you think some crazy nerdy engineer or mathematician must have created it. And trying to figure it out causes your head to swell! Well you’re not alone. Even with my engineering background most compensation plans give me a head ache.

Also, there’s too many variables to share here when considering choosing a network marketing business with regards to product compensation. While some companies are more generous than others in terms of money, you must also consider market saturation of products being sold, training methodology, sales tools and aids, residual income considerations, outside benefits, personal support, availabilty to market online or offline as an individual using technology…like blogs…marketing systems…funnelling programs and so much more.

For example…Avon is listed on MLM Company Rankings as #1, and while I can remember my mother having a couple of Avon parties, it’s definitely not a business suited for someone like me LOL. Avon, in my opinion, is for the most part a business for women. So your overall prospect base is severely limited. In addition, not everyone can sell skin care and cosmetics or has interest in doing so.

Make sure your company selection process confirms that it’s not only legitimate…meaning it’s licensed with offices in the countries it’s doing business in. It also gets you excited about the products because you will use them yourself.

So partner with a company you feel good about. No Network Marketing company can truly state that they are better than another. And please make sure the company is at least 5 years old! It’s also good to check out the corporate team online. Just google them and see if there are any red flags you feel uncomfortable about. Having trust in the corporate team is paramount. You don’t want to build a serious global business, and then have your income taken away from you because of mismanagement or some stupid policy violation that is most likely fabricated. Remember, you are building a Network Marketing business because you want long term passive income (income that comes in month after month for what you have done in the past).

Here is a short list, again in my opinion, of important factors to consider when narrowing your search down based on products.

1. Do they fill a NEED (will people want it/them)
2. Can anyone use them
3. Are they consumable (re-orders)
4. Automatic Orders – ease of use (your insurance policy)
5. Scientifically Backed by the company (documented even with clinical trials)
6. Wow Factor (people notice a difference in days not months)
7. Priced competitively
8. Good retail program for obtaining customers

Spend the time researching….a few serious days….even a week. And you will be much better off for it! And asking questions is paramount!

If you’re looking into the Network Marketing arena, as a viable business idea, in my opinion you are making a good decision. The Network Marketing business model is growing every single year. Thousands of companies start up each year and go out of business almost just as fast, which means it’s definitely a business model worth looking at. Just like the many technology companies popping up every year competing in the computer industry. More and more people are thinking about Network Marketing because it’s a viable home based business that will create life changing incomes for those who work hard. And in my opinion, working hard for say 2 – 5 years is not much of a sacrifice. Especially when I’m talking about 6-10 hours a week part time. A word of caution though, look hard and long at the  economic business model the company offers. More importantly understand it!

There are a number of things to consider:

I’m going to assume, you’ve looked around and found a company you have an interest in. You’ve done your due diligence and weighed up all the information you found.

Be aware, you will often hear complaints come from people who may have tried the Network Marketing model who didn’t create any income. Maybe they were misled into believing a Network Marketing business was simple. You try hard at your job don’t you? And if you have a business outside the home you work very hard at it also, right? Nothing is simple!

Now when looking and perhaps interviewing support teams….did they leave out the information about the compensation plan? Did you even bother to ask? And if you did was the explanation so complicated that you just don’t get it?

Here’s the deal. A lot of Network Marketing financial rewards programs are actually not hard to understand if you take the time to figure it all out on paper. This is one of the many things you must be putting down on paper to understand…including a plan of action and some personal and business goals. Forget all of the fancy terms and language. Do not be disturbed about completely understanding the biggest difference between a matrix, breakaway, binary, unilevel or even an australian one up structure…..It doesn’t actually matter, in my opinion.

What matters is…are there people making the type of money you deserve to make? Are there people making 10, 20, 30 or even 50 thousand a month after 2-5 years with the companies you’re investigating? Are there people making well beyond that who have been with the company longer? If there are, then know you can also make that kind of money if you partner with the right people, get busy and grow a business.

One thing to do is compare active income bonuses offered. Say for example it costs $1000 or even $1500 to start your Network Marketing business the right way, and one company offers a bonus of $100. You may think it’s a nice sum, right? And when you have a glance at another company’s bonus plan, they might be offering $300 or more. You see, in my opinion, as you begin your business a good company will offer good up front or active income while you’re working to develop long term passive (residual) income. Remember your company’s economic business model won’t be paying you passive income until the third month into your business (which most probably won’t be a lot). So you must be rewarded for being active with fast start bonuses and rank advancement bonuses. Just like in Corporate America…when you begin climbing the corporate ladder many companies offer a bonus and great salary increases. So if there is no bonus for advancing in status/rank, in my opinion, I would not look any further into that Network Marketing business model. I say this because at some point you will be spending more time assisting others with growing their enterprise rather than personally sponsoring yourself….and you must be rewarded for doing so!

It’s all about rewarding the people who work the hardest! Paying the producer right? I mean if you bring more customers or volume to a companies bottom line, shouldn’t you be rewarded accordingly? You bet you should!

Either way, at some specific point everybody on your team is going to run right out of people they know and they’ll have to get involved in marketing. Because Network Marketing is a thinking persons game. It’s all about selling. And selling, because there will marketing, costs money. And if you don’t have a marketing budget set aside, then developing it with active income will allow your Network Marketing business to have continued growth.

So think about the fast start and rank advancement bonus’s as in the bank money, that you can tap into at anytime. They are production bonuses! Just like the men who worked for me many years ago in the refinery got when production numbers were hit, based are goals. You should have volume numbers set by the company with rank advancement bonuses attached. Which will add to and seriously start your marketing or selling campaigns, which in turn will add to your success in the future. These active bonuses are very important so that you can continue to market your business. And the amount of these bonuses and commissions is extremely important to keep your business going.

One more thing…when comparing Network Marketing financial plans, understand what happens when you sponsor a person who goes out and develops a larger organization than you. Will you get paid reasonably for their efforts or, as in most binary programs, do you need to discover a 2nd heavy hitter to balance the effort to get paid.

Bottom line….when you have narrowed your search down to two or three Network Marketing companies, compare their financial rewards plans side by side. Pencil out the numbers and establish which best matches the revenue levels you deserve to achieve. One with a strong active and passive compensation in my opinion weighs the best. Where you can perhaps develop 6 figures in your first year just on the rank advancements, while developing your long term passive income.

Happy Marketing,

Online Branding Simple Tips

This article is about how to enhance your online branding. Simple information to get you started and what you need and how you can get your online branding working for you.

There are many ways to enhance your branding and branding skills. Some are common strategies that you may find are expensive such as SEO (Search Engine Optimization), PPC (Pay Per Click Advertising), Direct Mail Campaigns and so forth.

To get your branding started you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Start small if the budget isn’t quite ther yet. Always use the Kiss Method.

1. Google

Show Up on Google and Reach more customers with an ad on Google. Start with a free trial. http://www.Google.com/AdWords

Branding is all about TRUST…Consumers, businesses and people will look at your branding and read your content and search for you on the search engines. Ultimately if they recognize you, read testimonials or have heard of you by Word of Mouth, they will trust you, your products and services.

Brand awareness is fundamental when it comes to enhancing your online branding and there are many strategies of enhancing your exposure online. You can start with cost effective ways of getting your branding out there, and doing a multiple of techniques that can help increase your Brand Awareness/Brand Recognition.

2. Online Presence

Online is a great way of gaining the right attention, providing credibility on the world wide web and finding the best possible ways to enhance your online branding. Whether your a small, medium or large company, online presence is crucial and you can reach millions of people world wide with the branding of your products and services.

An online presence is one of the strongest attributes of your brand and its well advised that one gets started with their online branding sooner than later. It makes sense right? Just like offline branding, it waits for no one. The process of online branding takes time, and must be achieved much quicker online, due to the potential viral nature of the web, online branding can allow for faster growth than traditional branding might. Because of the time to be indexed, listed, and even searched one must begin as soon as possible.

3. Your website

Having a website to start off with is the first step and equally having a website that is branded correctly, easy to navigate, logical flow of information, juicy content, profile and site map are just some of things that are needed. Remember your website is the face of your business. It represents who you are and what you are about. It needs to look presentable, clean, informative and sticky. Sticky being it needs to grab attention, keep visitors on your website, browsing at what you have to offer.

4. Time To Decide

What is my purpose for my website/blog/blog?
Do I plan to sell products/services online?
Do I need a brochure or a catalog for people to download and print?
Do I need a CMS? (Content Management System) website where I can update my own photos, content, add pages, change colors and so forth. Blogs are great for this!

5. Do I want to generate leads and sales from my website?

Think about how you want to brand yourself online to your customers/clients.

6. Search Engine Optimization

There is no use in having a well-branded, beautifully displayed, easy to navigate, logical flow website/blog and great products/services if it’s not easily found on the Major Search Engines.

Your website/blog must be built with Search Engine Optimization practices in mind. If it isn’t, you’re wasting your time and money only building a website/blog/blog that will be uploaded into the never never land of the world wide web. We all know that consumers use the internet on a frequent basis and will look for products/services via search engine channels (Main ones Google, Yahoo, Bing and MSN). If you are not listed, consumers may not trust or find you as a credible source, therefore loosing potential leads and sales.

7. Start Your Own Blog and be Exclusive

This is a great tool that can compliment your online branding efforts. Blogs are great to write extra content about ideas, thoughts, strategies, powerful tools people would be interested in and any other related business factors that you can contribute to. Blogs provide a great platform for you to engage with your customers online (New and Potential) and connect/inspire your readers with great information. With great technology such as the RSS Feeds, this allows your material to be upload onto a RSS Feed, reaching more potential customers that are interested in what you have to say. Blogs can easily be incorporated into your website.

8. Use Competitions – Word of Mouth – Incentives

Take advantage of increasing your web traffic, leads and sales by discussing something that is happening in your business online. Have an area on your website/blog that can showcase a competition or incentive….then post it on your blog in more detail. Word of Mouth is still and will be a very important factor when it comes to enhancing your online brand presence, so create a viral buzz online that others will talk about e.g. Free Seminar, Free Consultation, Webinars/Webcasts and so forth.

If you haven’t done so already, join Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. It’s a great way to post, tweet and relationship with your competition. Create a viral buzz to people that may be interested in what you are offering.

9. Build your Online Brand

Get to know your target market. Understand who they are, what they like/dislike, what are they searching for, needing, wanting.

Set up your website/blog with the target market in mind.

Keep your communication consistent in content, message and tone to minimize confusing your customers.

Utilize an effective SEO (Search Engine Optimization) plan that will increase your search ranking and generate traffic of leads and sales to your website/blog. Build your reputation, be a credible authority and enhance your online branding through great strategies that will get you noticed online.

Happy Marketing,

Home Based Business Marketing Secrets Guaranteed To Make You Money

There is one simple formula that you can put into place that will significantly increase your bottom line in a short amount of time. That formula is one of the marketing secrets most network marketers or home based business professionals never learn about. Here’s your chance to find out what they are and where you can go to learn more.

Are you having a hard time finding people to join your business? Are you tired of dealing with rejection and dead beats? Well, you’re not alone. Many people encounter situations such as yours. The problem is no one has taken the time out to show you how to market and this is a problem with most Home Based Businesses and Network Marketing companies. Skills in marketing are important because marketing is how we let people know that we have a business and what we can offer. So, where do you go to look for help so you can learn these marketing skill sets.

First, here is one of the Home Based Business marketing secrets you should know. You need some kind of Home Based Business marketing system in place to help you generate leads. If you don’t, then more than likely you are going to struggle in your business. Having such a system in place can not only help you to generate endless leads to help build your customer base and business partners, but it can also allow you to generate a very lucrative advertising income while you are building your home business.

Most online professionals don’t know any online marketing secrets to succeeding. Learn the same marketing secrets the top earners know and you can be where they are, On Top!

Why a system? Having a system can help you avoid having to deal with those dead beats, you know the type. The ones who say they want a business and then do little to nothing to build a business. Here is another one of the many Home Based Business marketing secrets you should know. To overcome the dead beat issue, you need to increase the number of leads per day. The reason is, marketing is a numbers game. The more leads you bring in per day, the better chance you have of marketing individuals who are serious about business.

Now, what do you look for in a Home Based Business marketing system? The following are a list of three vital elements a Home Based Business marketing system should have in place:

1. Trainings and tools to help you generate leads

You can’t build a customer base or distributorship without first inviting people to your presentation. The way you do this online is through capture pages and a system should provide a way for you to quickly get your capture pages up and show you how to market you capture page so that they are everywhere on the internet.

2. A means for you to build relationships with those leads

On the internet, there is a simple way in which to do this and it can be done automatically. Of course, the phone is still one of the best tools in which to build relationships, but the phone is used after someone has come through your system. Once a lead is in your marketing system, they are already familiar with who you are. These leads are now your warm market. There is no need to do cold calling. By stepping through your system, they have already expressed an interest in your offer and they have also given you permission to communicate with them. How powerful is that?

3. You should be provided a way to market to the leads you have generated

This is where you can generate an income that you can use to pay for your marketing. No more having to spend your own money on your marketing, which means no more staying broke. Everything is paid for. One of the best things about having the ability to market to your leads is the more leads you generate per day, the more money you can make. In fact, you can earn a very lucrative income by marketing to your leads.

Basically, these three elements are what the top earners do to generate their income. These are the Home Based Business marketing secrets you should learn and put into action in order to build a successful business.

 

Happy Marketing,

  • Hi Gerry, Received your contact from Jan Bloom. I love my website, but it is not generating recognition needed, which was primarily designed to sell my yoga DVD which is not happening.
    Any guidance, or small amount of consultation you can provide, I believe is necessary to create more movement of these 1000 DVD’s!
    Many thanks,

Why More People Aren’t Showing Up To Your Network Marketing Meetings

A frustrating thing happens to all network marketers is when you have several people who are suppose to show up to your local MLM meeting and none of them come! I remember getting incredibly frustrated at times because I would talk to these people on the phone and give them directions and make sure they knew when the meeting started and then they just never showed up!

I couldn’t believe how excited they would sound on the phone and then they wouldn’t show up and I would just be so baffled!

One thing I learned through all my frustration however is that it happens to pretty much everyone in the home based, party plan and network marketing arenas. I would see people who were much better marketers than me get stood up for meetings just as often as I would so I knew that it wasn’t about me personally. Still it can be frustrating and I wanted to cut back on the no shows as much as possible. So here are a couple tips that you can use to make sure more of your prospects show up for your local meetings.

 
Meet them beforehand

Instead of giving them the address and time of the meeting try meeting them a half hour before at a coffee shop or some place else. Give yourself a chance to meet them and let them meet you in a more relaxed environment. Coming into a meeting can be a little weird for some people. Having them meet you beforehand is more casual and they are more likely to come if they know it’s just going to be you. Then you can walk into the meeting together.

 
Call to confirm

If you set up an appointment earlier in the week make sure you call them the night before or even the afternoon of the meeting to make sure they’re still coming. That way you can know ahead of time if someone is planning on blowing you off. Also, your call will let them know that you care about them coming and it will make them feel important.

 
Give them a reason to come

Tell your prospect over the phone that you have someone who has a lot of experience in the business who you would love for them to meet if they come to the meeting. Introduce them to your business partner or someone who has had a lot of success and can answer their questions effectively. Sometimes letting them know that there is someone more knowledgeable than you at the meetings will encourage them to come because otherwise they might just want to play 20 questions with you on the phone.

The promise of someone else will peak their interest and they’re much more likely to show up.

I hope that these tips assist you to get more people to your local meetings therefore making you a whole lot more money! Good luck!

Setting and Attaining Goals

In this blog post you are going to learn a system, that can and will assist you in setting and attaining your goals, this year and beyond if you choose to follow it.

Setting goals is simple. Just writing stuff on paper is Flim Flam….anyone can do that! Goal setting is just fluff. Goal attaining is the end result and that is what I like to focus on. So if you apply these 5 steps to goal attaining, you to can get yourself from where you are now to where you want to be in record time.

 

Step One – Clarify Your Vision

What do you really deserve? If you could be, do or have anything, what would you choose? More specifically, by the end of this year what is your number one goal you would like to focus on and attain?

Grab a blank sheet of paper right now, write “Dream List” at the top of it and write everything you think you want to and deserve to be, do or have. Let your imagination run wild and take all things into consideration like…..family, travel, income, vehicles, homes, lifestyle, accomplishments etc…..

From that list you will have some short-term goals and some long-term goals. Now it’s up to you to choose a couple of those dreams to focus on for the remainder of the year. If you were to fast-forward to the end of the year, what would you look back upon and be most proud of if you were to accomplish it by then?

 

Step Two – Always Believe

As long as your goal is in line with your skill set and vision, you must always believe by committing to that goal and taking the proper action steps achieve it, then you will attain it! It’s the law of cause and effect right…sowing and reaping will come into play. As long as you are not treking out (going where no man has gone before) and if you’re aware your goal is attainable by others as well…then it can be attained by you with the proper action!

 

Step Three – Identify and Align

By being part of my list or surfing to my site and just reading this blog post, you have shown you’re good at this step. Now you must take it one step further and identify as specifically as possible who has attained what you are working towards. Then align yourself with them as best you can!

Align yourself with e-books they have written or regular books, courses they provide, seminars they put on, plus any audio and video you can find about them and their journey. Plug in and get your questions answered. Especially this one…”How can I, in the most efficient and timely manner, get to where I am to where you are?”

 

Step Four – Commit to Massive Action

You must be willing to pay your dues…with some sweat equity…massive action! Depending on your skill set and the distance between where you are now and where you deserve to be, this action can take weeks to months to years to even decades depending on the specific goal. And you must prepare yourself for this.

When you study most successful people you will find that they were overnight successes that took 3-5-15 years going above and beyond what was expected, major commitment and massive action. You will also notice they didn’t allow set backs or failed attempts to stop them. They learned from their mistakes, picked themselves back up, and continued on by taking more massive focused action!

 

Step Five – Have Fun

Whenever you have a goal that lights your fire and becomes a serious burning desire to attain, it takes on a life of it’s own and the hours of working towards that goal….studying and working….seem more like fun than actual work.

If and when you have a goal you dread putting time or action into, because it feels like a job, re-evaluate the goal immediately. Zig Ziglar says it the best….”When you do the things you need to do, when you need to do them, the day will come when you can do the things you want to do, when you want to do them.”

4 Reasons MLM / Network Marketing Businesses are Considered Scams

MLM businesses, as a whole, have received a bad rap from many people. Most people think of losing thousands of dollars when they are asked their feelings about MLM companies. Unfortunately, this is not far from the truth.

What most people don’t understand is that few people lose “thousands” of dollars in the MLM industry in one MLM business.

Their loses build because they continue to search for the “holy grail” of MLM companies by jumping from one business to another every 6 – 9 months. After the 3rd business, most losses are over a thousand dollars and the losses build with each subsequent business that is joined and dropped. So, if people are willing to join a company and then drop out after 6 – 9 months, why are they calling these MLM companies “scams”?

Let me share my opinion as to why this happens.

  1. They were “promised” large incomes with little work and to be honest with any business there is WORK….hence the word NetWORK!
  2. The marketing literature and hyped up NO Integrity…Character Poor…Honesty Lost…distributors said people would flock to this new opportunity….and of course this NEVER happens.
  3. The testimonials, from people in luxurious locations or with fancy new cars, gave glowing reports of all of the money they would make and they didn’t make any money.
  4. The sponsors could not answer their questions as to how to build their business, where to find good leads, or how to make money. This is mainly because the sponsor is also not making any money.

 

So, what do you do if you are looking to add to your income by joining a Network Marketing / MLM company part time or full time?
Is MLM truly a scam?

The answer is quite simply…..NO!

MLM or Network Marketing in itself is not a scam. What is a scam is how the business is being marketed by all those hyped up, slime bag, unethical people out there. How do I know this? Been there and been sucked in before. I have learned that one must develop the skill set to become successful in any business…no matter what that business may be. And MLM / Network Marketing is no different!

I can and will show you the correct way to market your business.

So where do you start in your new venture?

First, forget EVERYTHING the MLM marketing literature says to do.  For most people…It does’nt work. Second, you must find a mentor who will work with you and those you introduce…who is already having the success you are striving for….who has Integrity….Honesty and Character. Thirdly, you must plug into a system that is current and internet masters are using TODAY to bring in five figure MONTHLY incomes.

And lastly….YOU must be coachable….with Attitude….Drive and Determination!

Got it! Now go for it!

Funded Proposal What Are They?

Funded Proposals are becoming more and more key elements when generating an income online in any business.

Let’s view an example of funded proposals in a traditional business sense. You saw an ad in the paper for a sale on milk. Your intention is to only buy milk. You go to the store and you end up buying other products, because you have to walk to the back of the store to get the milk. In the meantime you see your favorite fish, snacks, and other high price items you buy. It was the stores marketing strategy to give you a product below cost in hopes to have you buy other products with a high profit margin.

As a network marketer you must offer funded proposals to beat the competition. Without one you may run out of money before you make enough sales in your primary business. The top 3% of online marketers are leading with value…offering a low cost marketing tool to their list. A training program so to speak. Something people can start for FREE, and then later on actually upgrade. This will establish trust with their prospects before a business opportunity is presented. It also puts cash in the marketer’s pocket creating a bigger budget for marketing efforts.

And you know how most people require marketing capitol in Network Marketing. It’s so important.

The old school method was done without funded proposals. Most people that pitch their business opportunity fail. This is because no trust was established and the marketer spends more on advertising then income coming in. Remember there will be no network marketing business without network marketing business partners and customers coming in.

Funded proposals do help people make money. A huge need in online marketing is to show people how to make money. Most business opportunities talk about compensation plans. However, they do not teach you how to put cash in your pocket by effective advertising. I mean they don’t even teach you how to advertise or market at all.

These are the three most important requirements when building your network marketing business online.

  1. You must build a list by offering to assist people without selling them. Being a coach, mentor or partner so to speak.
  2. You must form relationships with the people on your list. By being available and at least mailing to them regularly.
  3. Assist them with generating a few bucks, utilizing the strategies of a funded proposal.
  4. Once they make a few bucks, they will be interested to know how to make more. And will inquire about what you do.

The moral is to always sell yourself, your team, your support and your marketing system first. NOT your business opportunity.

 

Happy Marketing,
