Network Marketing “the Brutally Honest Approach To It”

You join a program that utilizes network marketing to sell a product, and you make money by recruiting new sellers who have purchased their products from you and are now selling their own. You may get a cut of their sales and their recruits’ sales and so on for many levels. The possibilities are endless, and so is the income potential. So it sounds all gravy right? All you have to do is get your business up and running by joining the program of your choice and recruiting new prospects.

It sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? It sure did for me, and I cannot describe how excited I was about finally being able to do something about my job that I hated and the long, miserable days that I spent there. I was so ready and eager to go out there and be successful with my new network marketing business. I had all the resources I needed at my fingertips through my program, and all I had to do was turn the key.

Once I did a little research, I saw that there were lots of other people recruiting and advertising their opportunity. No sweat, it just shows how many people were having success with this concept, and it was time to get in on my slice of the pie! I mean, if people were not successful with it, then why would they be advertising it? I’ll admit, it started out a little slow. Well, very slow. I found myself doing everything I could within time and budget restraints to promote my program, but I was generating no results from my efforts. Day after day I would check my email, vigorously hoping to be greeted by an email from my program telling me I had signed up a new recruit. Every day I would have a little less excitement while opening my inbox, and a little more lost hope when I saw no email containing the good news I had anticipated. Weeks turned into months of unsuccessful promoting. I finally gave up, threw in the towel, and turned to face the miserable reality of a job I hated with no escape.

My name is Joe Borowy and this is the story of how I failed with Network Marketing. I’m sure its the same story many of you reading this would write about your experience with Network Marketing. The truth is 95% of Network Marketing Businesses fail. All too often, a story of one’s failure looks no different from my own. It can depressing when you think about how much hope and drive you had to be successful, all to see it slowly fade away.

After my Network Marketing Business failed, I continued to do research on the concept of Network Marketing and I was determined to figure out how the 5% who do succeed with Network Marketing go about doing it. I had to sift and search through many bogus methods, useless “secrets,” and sales pitches that targeted Network Marketing failures like me. Many websites out there try to target people who have failed with Network Marketing, promising new ways to make money from it and new methods to drive success. As you probably know, there are also many websites who target Network Marketing novices, and create false hope and promise. These are what I call “Vegas Airport Slot Businesses.” For anyone who has been to Las Vegas, you know that the airport is famous for having hundreds of slot machines for you to play right after you get off the plane. The airport makes shocking amounts of money from these slots. They have horrible odds, but most of the people who play them don’t know that. What is their goal? They want your gambling money to be spent as soon as you get off the plane. Most people are dying to play the slots for the whole duration of the plane trip. As soon as they get off the plane, the slots are right there waiting for them. You would be surprised on how much people blow on these things. After they’ve had enough, the people go about their vacations, have a good time, and most likely lose a good chunk of money. After a few days, they are ready to cut their losses, and get on a plane to head home. They are dissappointed because they didn’t hit any jackpots. They have a few dollars left, and they recognize the airport slots as their last chance to hit the big one. They sit down with a revitalizing hope of going home on with more then they came with. Soon enough, they have nothing left, and are dissappointed once again.

So what do these slots have to do with Network Marketing?

They are built on the same principles. The Las Vegas airport slots are designed to crop you up with hope and excitement for the opportunity to gain wealth, and take your last dollars after you lose. The sad reality is most of the network marketing programs you will come across are designed one of these two ways. They either want your first and foremost dollars, or your last, desperate dollars. Remember, the executives and founders of these programs know very well that 95% who enroll will fail. Its just the sad truth.

So…Is there any realistic hope of being successful with network marketing?

I am very glad to say yes, there is. I am not going to try to pitch a sale to you here, but I have found several factors that are essential for any success with network marketing. Some are more obvious than others, and some of the obvious ones are much more important than you might expect.

Here they are, in no particular order:

1. Relationships- This is probably the most important factor of developing a successful Network Marketing Business. When trying to find new people to enroll in your opportunities, you have to prove to them you are trustworthy and that you want them to be successful. The best way to do this is by working to make your network successful, rather than using them to make yourself successful. It not only will make your more money in the long run, but you will enjoy doing it. It will develop a “family” atmosphere of sort between you and your network. It will truly feel like the perfect job, because all of your colleagues are happy, and you all help each other. This is the x-factor of success with networking. Even if you were to do everything else right, your business would slowly fade away if you had no relationship with your enrollees.

2. Communication- This one is very obvious, but often is missing link for many up and coming Network Marketers. Most programs utilize some kind of autoresponse system for its enrollees. Too many Network Marketers label this as their communication with their prospects. To truly develop the relationships you need to be successful in the long run with Network Marketing, first hand communication is a must. Live calls and personal calls can be good, but many people, like myself, don’t like phone interaction for Network Marketing. I feel that calling prospects about opportunities, or calling new enrollees to motivate them to push forward with their business could easily put someone in a situation where they are back into a corner and do something they don’t really want to do. That’s why I prefer email as the main communication source for my network. It allows friendly communication, encouragement, advice, and motivation without putting anyone on the spot. More enrollees does not necessarily mean a better overall network.

3. A Realistic Opportunity- The Internet has become oversaturated with hundreds of network marketing programs, all of which claim to be the best. It is important only to promote programs with realistic opportunity in the long run. Look for a reputation, a good amount of included resources, or even in some cases, a new program in prelaunch that offers you an upgraded membership at no cost. Be careful though, there are thousands of great salesmen on the Internet, and it is very easy to be deceived. I have tested dozens of programs, and yet, only offer several opportunities to my website readers and mailing list. I wouldn’t want to waste their time offering them a program that probably would not work for me. If you are looking for a realistic opportunity, browse my website and see if you like any of the opportunities I promote.

4. Mailing Lists- Not only developing your own, but signing up for others on the Internet that have good resources and tips. By getting people to sign up for your own mailing lists, it allows you to communicate with them and share with them new opportunities, as well as feed the new relationships you are developing. It is very important to sign up for other mailing lists, as they often are the best sources for fresh, new opportunities. Pass these on to your own email list, and your list will do the same for their own lists.

5. A Goal, a Drive, and a Reason Why- Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that in order to be successful, you have to want to be successful and have a reason why you want to obtain success. I’m not just talking about wanting to get rich and live the easy life. You need to have a personal drive of why you want to achieve success and what you plan to do with it once you have achieved it. Wanting to get away from your current job probably won’t be enough. For me, it has always been wanting to enjoy the finer aspects of every day life, and not having to worry about little things, like finances. For most people, money is anything but a little thing. I always wanted to be successful not so that I could be rich, but so that I wouldnt have to worry about money. I believe worry is an unneccesary part of life, and I always hated having to worry about money. Money is the root of all evil, and even if you have alot of it, it doesn’t benefit your life quality unless you have some higher goal in mind of why you want it. If you don’t have any reason for being involved with Network Marketing other than wanting some extra money to spoil yourself with, then this business probably isn’t for you. The people who succeed in Network Marketing love what they do, and have a drive inside that fuels them to keep going.

The bottom line is this: To be successful with Network Marketing, you have to enjoy doing it, and help others enjoy it by working for their success. It is better to have a team of 10 hard working, highly driven enrollees who love doing what they do than to have 100 paid members in your downline who you never hear from. They wont last, and the chances are that only 5 of them will be successful. Network Marketing is not for everyone, and there is no shame in acknowledging that it is not for you at this point in life. Perhaps later in life, you will have a good reason why you want to succeed with Network Marketing, and you will be ready for it. You don’t want to get into this business if you won’t enjoy it. I promise you that.

If you are considering getting into the Network Marketing business, do yourself a favor and define for yourself A Goal, a Drive, and a Reason Why.

New Tactics to Increase Your Direct Marketing Sales

Direct Marketing Advertising Resources

I have had many questions from people on what are good strategies to find people in direct marketing. I used to be one of those big go getters who go out and leave flyers on cars, doorsteps, signs, lawns, dogs, cots, and etc. Then I go and talk to every single person that I meet and tell them about my business proposal to them. I have done pretty well with my direct marketing, but it is a heck of a lot of work then what I wished for it to become.

If you want to cut your efforts in half the time of my old strategies, then I would recommend you to mix your direct marketing in your public area to the whole world with internet marketing.

You may already have a duplicate website given to you by your organizations, but when prospects visit your website, they don’t want to see the sales page, they want to see the “YOU” page. They want to know who YOU are and what YOU do. Once your prospects see your personal website that explains why you are a part of this business and how it has changed your life, then the website will become more personal to them, and that the website is more than a screen that they are looking at, but it is you who they are looking at. If you can sell yourself before your sales page, you have just sold your product.

You can still go out and chase those prospects of yours day in or day out, but I would recommend marketing your business on the internet a little more if you tend to stick with direct marketing. I love affiliate marketing and am not sure if I will ever leave it, but maybe someday I will go back to direct marketing.

Data Network Affiliates Review – Is It Community Service?

Attention All Network Marketers – Learn How You Can INSTANTLY Generate More Traffic Than 95.4% of all Online Websites, and get THOUSANDS of leads, Using Free Marketing Strategies.

Data Network Affiliates has gotten a lot of buzz online over the last couple of months, mostly from people who are looking for something for FREE which is driving the growth through the roof. If you’ve found this chunk of information, chances are you’ve been looking into the company and trying to decide- YES or NO. Maybe you’ve already joined a Data Network Affiliates team and you’re questioning your decision. In either case, I’m going to give my honest feedback about this company, both good and bad, and help you clarify your decision to join or do something else.

Data Network Affiliates or DNA is a MLM/Network marketing company that specializes in the collection of information, specifically license plates. DNA was scheduled to launch in February 2010. They aim to provide a free business and has a well known MLM ‘veteran’, Phil Poccolo working behind the scenes of this company (just Google Phil later). If you’ve never heard of Phil Poccolo, great!

Alright, What is DNA about?…

First, let’s take a look at marketing INFORMATION and the validity of doing it through a MLM/Network Marketing model. The first thing to mention is the Information Age is a huge industry that is growing like wildfire, doing more than $ 14 billion in revenue last year. Out of that $ 14 billion, very little, if any, was done through the Data Network Affiliates Marketing model. (They haven’t launched yet remember?)

One thing that I would like to point out that a lot of Data Network Affiliates aren’t aware of, is that there is only one company out there similar to the DNA business model. Obviously, they were first to expand into the MLM industry with an info product because DNA has not officially got rolling yet. Now that’s not in criticism of DNA, because they will get their chance whenever they decide to launch.

What are the ‘Perks’ to Data Network Affiliates?

To begin with, information is such an easy product to MARKET. You don’t have to sell, use, or try anything. Most MLM companies have the issue that a new distributor has to get really educated to even share it in an effective way. And they have to make sure one is using, trying, sampling, tasting, or purchasing each month to create residual income. You won’t run into that with DNA. You can see a license plate and say, ‘Isn’t it cool to Turn Info Into Income?’ and you’ll get a bunch of people’s attention, especially since this is FREE business (at-least that’s what they tout).

Secondly, the information age is ever-evolving and IS relatively an untapped market. With major Fortune 500 companies expanding and needing information to increase their marketability and sales growth, information will be the key ingredient to them accomplishing such goals in the future.

Thirdly, I believe the leadership will hold up and do their part to launch this company, although they can’t lose anyway because they’ve provided a business to thousands of people who are currently working for them for FREE- Community Service.

Well… What are the Negatives?…

Data Network Affiliates has not done a lot to slow down the droves of people who are looking for FREE businesses. Why? Because they are growing THEIR database with peoples names, address, SS#’s, etc..(Remember you must sign up!). In addition to collecting the personal info, who knows what they are doing with that, after they get your personal stuff, you are now required to enter tags and work for a company that is not looking to pay you because they’ve never opened their doors for business. Sounds like community service to me!

Let me explain with a real life example. When someone goes out and picks up paper, bottles, and cigarette butts for their local community off the side of roads and highways with a lazy-sheriff breathing down their back, they are not getting compensated for their efforts. I know because I served my community for FREE once before due to a ‘heavy-foot’ speeding ticket…Oops.

The other negative is that how much can you REALLY get paid on something that is so called free? (Really not free…). Ladies and gentleman if you are looking to join DNA, I hope you are waiting on them to begin charging people an affordable enrollment fee. If not, then this definitely won’t be around long (if it launches). There has never been in American business history a company that has sustained itself by allowing free investors to catapult their sales. McDonald’s Free Franchise? Amway Free MLM opportunity? Avon giving away make-up for Free? Pre-Paid Legal hiring Free attorneys? Microsoft giving away Free software? (Take some FREE time to think on that…)

…Now, let’s analyze Data Network Affiliates comp plan:

D.N.A. operates under a uni-level commission structure, meaning that you build depth in your sales organizations. We’ll just use 5 levels of depth in our example:

Now remember I told you there was another company that began “Turning Information Into Income” before DNA. Let’s compare the two compensation plans apples to apples..OK? Both companies look to build depth by getting 3 people to get 3 people so on and so forth. Well, that is basically going to be the same in terms of depth and number of people in both companies 5 levels deep.

What’s interesting is that in the comp plans of both companies their is a tremendous difference in how much ‘money’ is paid out on each on each level. Let’s jump to the 3rd level where there should be 27 people with 3 getting 3 that got 3= 27 people. DNA will pay you $ 54 on the 3rd level and the other company will pay you $ 202 on the 3rd level. (By the way, there is a one time $ 124.95 start-up investment for the other deal). On the fourth level, with the same amount of people, (81) DNA pays out $ 162 and the other company pays out $ 810. Overall, DNA pays you based on the amount of people who get started for FREE and the other company leverages your pay based on each license plate through UNLIMITED levels. You choose…

My Conclusion in Reviewing Data Network Affiliates: May I stop there to conclude? I hope you see already that there is a HUGE difference in the two companies. One other quick note, DNA is requiring you to get 10 more license plates (20 required) per month than the other company (10 required). All in all, less work with the latter, although it is pretty simple to collect tag info.

Overall, you may have thought I was kind of harsh on this company, I’m actually not negative about it – it just isn’t in alignment with who I want as business partners-Freebies. Personally, I would never join DNA. I’m sure there’s money to be made if you’re patient enough to wait for them to launch, but here’s what you have to look at…

…what do you REALLY want from this new concept in the industry? What are your dreams? If you want REAL residual wealth creation, you’re better off in a company that is officially born. (Ideas are born everyday). If you’re like me, you probably want a company where 80-90% of the participants get a guaranteed check for 1/2 of their initial investment back within seconds of getting started. Plus, income is created from true instant residuals. Historically, when people re-coop their initial investment back quickly, those comp plans have produced more free lifestyles and bigger checks for more people.

If you want to do COMMUNITY SERVICE and gather unbelievable amounts of people for nothing out of pocket, you MIGHT make a lot of money with Data Network Affiliates, just understand what the comp plan will and won’t do – and make the decision based on objectivity and whether or not it is in alignment with YOUR vision.

I have created wealth at a very young age via the Real Estate industry (feels great to own my primary home outright), but now I impact the lives of many people across this country because of a POWERFUL residual creation Network Marketing model that I PAID to be affiliated with. Of course, it DOES depend on what you want out of it, remember that. Don’t be deceived by the perpetual, promiscuous, profit-promotional out there.

If you would like to see what company I recommend for ‘Instant’ residual creation, $ 120k a month from this little method… Without paying a single cent for traffic.

 

Now Pay Close Attention —

Affiliate Marketing is attractive to a merchant because he is only paying for his advertising once he has made a sale.

For yourself, the Affiliate, there are also many benefits, the main one being the profits that you can earn. By having a link or advert on your website, giving benefits of the merchant’s product, you will get interested parties clicking on the link through to the merchant’s site, hopefully resulting in a purchase. Once the customer has completed the transaction you will receive a commission. The more people that you attract to your site to make a purchase, the more commissions you will receive.

Affiliate Marketing is a superb way to make money working online from the comfort of your home. All you need to start with is a computer and internet connection.

Free Marketing – Article Marketing For The Online Business Opportunities

You have probably come across many business opportunities as you surf the web. Has it ever occurred to you that you can use article marketing for the online business opportunities?

The reason article marketing is so popular is because it really is effective. Couple this with a free price tag and you start to see why this method can be so popular.

Traffic is the key reason whether your business thrives or not. So it does not matter what you do or sell, if you have no traffic or very little, you can’t survive.

Now that you know article marketing brings you the traffic that you need, you will be more than happy to know that this kind of marketing is virtually free. The ‘catch’ is that you do have to be prolific.

This means that you should write as many articles as you can on any given topic.

Article marketing is effective, but don’t expect traffic if you have only got a few working for you. You need tens of articles for any given topic or sub-topic. This will result in hundreds of articles on a niche.

This is an option worth considering if you are already making money. Paying for submission can mean faster approval and other perks.

Don’t be hasty and submit your articles only to get rejected. Read the FAQs and guidelines first. Find out if your content falls under the category of non accepted content. How should you format your articles in order to be accepted?

Spend at least a few minutes going through these details if you are unfamiliar. Be patient because approval can take many days if the articles are humanly approved.

Some article directories actually frown on such automated submissions. If you do use one, ensure that the submissions are done correctly. Incorrect submissions can cost you your account if it is repetitious.

What you can really spend your time on is on the writing of the articles. You can plan this by spreading out the task and doing it regularly. This is not a one off effort, unless you already have an inventory of articles going for you.

You can also contact freelancers directly but when you find the right person for what you want, just stick with that person. The rates are quite established in the market, as is the corresponding quality.

It is easier to complete assignments when the relationship is established rather than looking and testing new services over and over.

As the biggest city in Scotland and the third biggest in Britain, Glasgow has excellent national and international transport links. And it’s easy to get around once you’re here too. This section gives you all the information you need to find us – and some hints on what visitors should see in Glasgow.

Live music. Glasgow is home to many bands that are now international names and there’s loads of new talent coming out of the city’s live music venues. So whether you are into rock or indie, punk or even country music, there’s a place where you can give your eardrums a treat.

High culture. As well as its thriving street culture, Glasgow has more than its fair share of high culture, with a year-round programme of arts and music. There are over 20 museums and galleries, and the city is home to Scottish Opera, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Scottish Royal Ballet.

Green spaces. People visiting Glasgow for the first time are often surprised at the amount of green space in the city centre – all the 19th-century landscaped parks and gardens are the perfect balance to the urban pace of life.

Sporting highlights. With a keenly contested rivalry between the country’s two top football teams – Rangers and Celtic – an international stadium at Hampden and hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow has a rightful claim to be Scotland’s sporting capital.

The Highlands and Islands. With so much to do in the city centre, it’s a wonder anyone finds time to venture out further – but with the highlands and islands less than an hour away, it’s too tempting to resist.

Platinum Explosion at Wealthy Affiliates, What’s it All About

The decision has finally been made! Wealthy Affiliate Platinum is here at long last. The wait is over and we can all get on with learning about the newest concepts in internet marketing.

Trying to learn internet marketing is not quite as easy as many would have you believe. It is just like learning anything else, it takes time.

Imagine if you were trying to learn how to fly an airplane for example. Would they let you in the pilot’s seat of a Boeing 747? Wow, I certainly hope not. No, more like a small Cessna or something like that.

First you would need to grasp an understanding of the basics of how to fly an airplane. You need to get the classroom learning done before you even get into the ‘plane.

And that is exactly the same as it is with learning to do internet marketing. You cannot start off right at the top and earning thousands of dollars every month, as much as you might want to.

You cannot fly the 747, you need to start with the Cessna. Absolutely no difference with learning how to use the internet to earn a living. It is six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Enter Wealthy Affiliate University Platinum. The newest incarnation of WAU which promises the easiest and best way to get a thorough grounding in internet marketing. If you decide to join us-and I hope you do-you will see that I often use an expression in the forums there.

First you learn, then you earn. That’s it, very simple. First you learn, then you earn. Got it?

Once you get your head wrapped around this extremely simple idea and can accept that this is what you need to do, the battle is already half won.

My friend Steve the gorilla and I are inviting everyone interested in learning all about internet marketing to join us for the fun ride in store at Wealthy Affiliate University. Please join us for a peek by going to www.wealthyaffiliates-university.com and for heavens sake, bring your sense of humour.

Keith Elliott is a retired builder with interests in Astronomy, Architecture, Japanese Gardening, Photography, Writing, Woodworking and anything else that doesn’t move. He is cheerfully learning internet marketing and earning some of his income online.

Email Marketing – 3 Reasons to Use Email Marketing to Make Money Online

After spending a few years fumbling around making money here and there online, I have learned the most solid, consistent way of doing it is to make email marketing central to your sales marketing strategy.

Back in 2004, I naively drove traffic straight to merchant sites using affiliate links. A while later, I created landing pages so visitors would see something different, although I neglected to include any opt in form. Crazy, yes… what can I say I was a newbie. I quickly learned concentrating all efforts into driving traffic for one-time sales was only benefiting the merchant, not me.

That’s when I realized the importance of follow-up. Although previous landing pages were filled with targeted content and some personalized information, sales didn’t double or become more consistent until I added an autoresponder opt in form which gave me the lucrative opportunity to follow-up with visitors.

Which leads to the number one reason to use email marketing to make money online…

Reason No. 1 – Follow-Up

Follow-up allows you the opportunity to expose your product or offer to visitors beyond their initial visit. It gives you the chance to present your offer in more detail and answer common questions (FAQs) before they’re even asked in your follow-up emails. Providing answers before they are asked (reading a subscriber’s mind) will slide sales right into your account.

What’s great is when visitors opt into your form to receive additional information, they are expressing interest to learn more & granting permission for further contact from you. This places you in an excellent selling position. You are now graced with another opportunity to “CAPTURE THE SALE”. How cool is that? Right! Just remember…

Email Marketing = More Exposure = More Opportunities To Follow-Up With Quality Content = More Money

This flows nicely into the second reason…

Reason No. 2 – A Single Email Can Equal Mass Sales

Once you have established a trustworthy relationship with subscribers by sharing quality free content and making recommendations that actively helps them in some way, you will have cultivated a list where a single email promotion can equal massive sales. Such a privilege is akin to having an ATM in your desktop.

There is nothing more exhilarating in internet marketing than making a great product recommendation to your email list and having them respond with enthusiastic profits that start rolling in almost instantly. Just be careful to never take your list for granted; they are after all real-live people. Treat them with respect, not money machines.

Reason No. 3 – Automation

The beauty of having an automated marketing system that consistently brings in sales is it’s the closest thing to being able to “set & forget it”. Email marketing automation beats offline methods of follow-up any day.

Would you rather spend hours pitching prospects, answering questions, arming yourself with rebuttals, dealing with rejection… all aimed to capture one sale -OR- load up an autoresponder with meaty content equally aligned with money-making offers set to act as your automated sales force? I’d go with the latter. I’m sure you agree, that is if you understand the value of time/freedom & are serious about having a successful online business that will continually make you money.

Automation is key to success and profitability, both in the short and long-term. Having an automated email system for interested prospects to opt into, immediately positions you to receive automated sales. Automation allows you to leverage sales in countless, creative ways. I’ll leave you with this “food for thought”…

~ Millionaires Understand The Power of Automation & Leverage ~

So if you ever question whether email marketing is worth taking the time to establish as a central part of your marketing strategy, remind yourself of the “3 Reasons”… 1) Multiple Follow-Up Opportunities To Capture Sales, 2) One Email Can = Mass Sales, 3) Leveraged Automation.

The world is yours.
