Where Is Your Life Going?

Are you on track to achieve your goals? Are you one step closer to achieving your BIG dreams? I truly hope you are. However, the sad but true fact is that most people are not making progress in their life. They are either exactly were they were last year or even worse they are quickly moving backwards.

If what I described sounds familiar to you... intimately familiar (if you know what I mean) I have GREAT news for you. You can decide today to make 2016 the year you start your own business. It's not too late!

If you want the freedom to live life on your terms, I want to help you do just that.

There is much more to life than just being successful in business. If you are ever going to be TRULY wealthy you must have abundance and wealth in every area of your life. I know plenty of people who are well off financially but they absolutely hate their lives.

I look forward to working with you very soon! One of our main goals for 2015 was to assist as many people as possible to start a business of their own. I am VERY proud to say we assisted many, many people to achieve this goal.

The only question right now is will you be one of the people who achieves this goal or one of the people who lets opportunity pass them by?

Here's where you begin - Start your business!

Can't wait to start working with you!

How to Generate Free Network Marketing Leads

It does not matter which search engine you use - Google, Yahoo, Bing or any of the others - you are sure to find pages of results for companies offering "free MLM leads".  In fact, it is not unusual to find a lead generation company offering up to ten thousand free MLM leads.

The offer is usually pretty simple and basic. Complete the short form below including your name and primary e-mail and we'll send you a link to download your new list. Now think about that. Seriously. Because you may have just paid a very dear price to get your hands on one or two totally universal, definitely non-qualified names and emails. In fact, you could even find your own contact info on the list!

Free Network Marketing Leads? So you prefer Quantity To Quality?

It requires a lot of time, energy and skill to generate the name of a person who is not only actively intending to start their own business, but who also has the time and resources available to start right away. So why would any person offer to give away this valuable resource?

They do not. Not really. Any free leads you might pick up will cost you your contact information and, possibilities are, you will now find yourself on a list that's either given away or sold to dozens, perhaps even hundreds or thousands of other people who are seeking to promote their products, services and business opportunities.

These firms that give leads away for free, may put little effort into qualifying those leads.

They could have gathered additional info to better qualify these leads, but chances are they didn't. And even if the did, it is not likely that they will give this information away for free. A verified lead is much more valuable and that they won't go for free. Generally these free leads are gathered from co-registration forms and only contain the name and email address, possibly completed for something free just like you did .

A company that goes through the trouble of conscientiously corroborating whether a lead is really looking for a business venture and has discussed with the registrant whether or not they can afford to start their own business, obviously will charge a substantial price for this information.

The Best Free Network Marketing Leads

Generating your own leads through the rules of attraction marketing is the simplest way to generate a high quality fresh lead. And you do not have to go broke to do it.    

One methodology is to write articles about your opportunity and products, which addresses the concerns of your target market.

If you place a call to action before the end of your article, you can lead interested parties through to your webpage, or landing page.

All you've got to do is upload your article and then promote it. That way people that are looking for answers to questions about your opportunity will seek you out, rather than you having to chase them.

Forums, blogs, and other social media sites like Facebook or LinkedIn are wonderful places to find an audience.

Make friends, offer your expertise, be useful and brand yourself by becoming into a valuable and frequent contributor. Attraction marketing works by promoting yourself initially, then promoting your product later when people have learned to trust and like you.

After a while you'll have created relationships with people who are genuinely enthusiastic about your product and opportunity, and through attraction marketing you have created your own free, qualified MLM leads.

Help For The Beginning Network Marketer

Starting a new business can be scary. There is a lot to learn. But it’s not nuclear science.  The only real way to fail in network marketing is to quit.  But I remember how unsure I was when I started, and so I'm going to share some tips that will help.

Who Said You Need to Have All the Answers?

Remember in school when you were afraid the teacher would call on you for the one question you didn’t know the answer to? A question would be posed and you’d look down at your desk and frantically pray, “No, no, no, please don’t call on me. Not for this one. Please no, not me.” It can be traumatizing to some kids, if they live in fear they’ll look stupid in front of their peers.

Some adults still live with that same fear. Network marketers are particularly vulnerable. What if someone asks you a question for which you don't have the answer?

Here's the thing, though: Who said, or where did you read that you need to have all the answers?  Even if you're a sponsor, team leader, Manager or Director, what is the worst that would happen if you uttered the words, "I’m not sure, but I will find out and get back to you?”

 Never Show Your Desperation

There is a fine line between being assertive and being aggressive, between being proactive and being obnoxious. Okay maybe not such a fine line with being obnoxious – most of us can recognize that behavior.

What some network marketers have a hard time discerning is when their behavior makes them look desperate. Yet the rest of their audience can clearly see the desperation in their words or actions.

Help for Shy Network Marketers

Do you think you're too shy or introverted to be successful in network marketing? Does the thought of approaching strangers to talk up your product line or business opportunity give you a sick feeling in your stomach? Will you avoid asking for referrals simply because it feels too uncomfortable for you? Don't automatically dismiss a profitable network marketing career just because you get a little nervous about making phone calls to strangers - most everyone experiences this kind of fear at one time or another, and just about everyone can overcome it.
Should You Sign Up With a Company Because You Absolutely Love the Products?

There are so many options available if you want to be part of the direct selling industry. There is no shortage of product lines and of companies whose primary product line is similar to other companies. You certainly have your choice of which company to represent. In your decision process you should consider the company’s compensation plan, policies and procedures and whether or not the products are consumables – making it likely customers will reorder.

Not Everyone Will Be Your Fan

According to the Direct Selling Association, 15.1 million people in the U.S. are involved in direct selling. That’s a lot of people in this industry, and new people are joining every day. More consultants means more competition for you. In fact, competitors are everywhere – on different teams, working with different companies, or even on YOUR team. 

I am very involved in network marketing with a fabulous company called Ariix.  I love the network marketing industry - so much so that I have written a book about it that is scheduled to be published later this year!  Yes, I do have other ventures like coaching and Bob's store.  But my passion is for the network marketing industry because of its ability to help ordinary people change their lives.

So now I ask you.  Do you want the freedom to set your own schedule?  Do you want to be able to spend time making memories with your family before it's too late?  Do you want to wear your pajamas to work?  Then contact me.  Because the only thing I love more than building my network marketing business is helping you build yours!

Got Leads? Using Blog Comments To Get Free Leads for Your MLM

One of the easiest ways to get free leads for your MLM is by commenting on blogs that are relevant to the product you are trying to promote.

When you are just starting out promoting your business online, you should try to leave comments on as many blogs as possible.

Not every comment you leave will be accepted by the blogger and not every comment you leave will get a click thru from a reader. The fastest way to find blogs that will be applicable to your product will be by pasting this into your Google search box:

site: inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “your product”

Quickly interpreted this implies the word blog is in the URL with the words post a comment.

The minus before the second and third terms makes Google ignore any blogs where the comments are closed and where you have got to be signed in. And of course, "your product" is whatever you are promoting.

Look for Active Blogs

Be aware of the dates of posts, you don't want to waste your time posting comments on inactive blogs.

If you have the SEOQuake toolbar on your computer, this will tell you the Page Rank of the blog you're looking at. Page Ranks go from nil to nine, so if you can comment on blogs possessing a page rank above two or three, the standard of the link you get in exchange is better and Google will reward you for that.

The more readers a blog has, the more chance you will have to comment on other people's posts and the site's articles. When you leave your comment be sure it is beneficial. The blogger is giving you a valuable link so leave something valuable in turn. A pointless comment is no good to the blogger and it'll be deleted, so you have wasted your time. Occasionally even if you do leave a good comment it may be deleted.  Unfortunately you are in the hands of the blogger.

This is the reason you will have to spend a lot of hours blog commenting. The advantage is that you'll get links back to your website whether or not you get people opting in, which should bring your website up in the rankings.

Look for DoFollow Blogs

Many sites enable you to make public a comment , however they do not enable you to leave backlinks for your internet site. No follow blogs are not going to benefit you, so go on to the next .

You'll be able to see if the names in the comment boxes are spotlighted in blue, i.e. Links and a few blogs permit you to put two links in the comment box. If you want to get leads then you definitely should funnel people that click your link to a capture page where you can obtain their email address and other information you might need. If you don’t know how to create capture pages, don’t worry. Here’s the system I use. It comes with done-for-you capture pages you can use to drive traffic to your network marketing website and build your list of prospects

Make a spreadsheet of all the blogs you have visited and you can soon develop a connection with other people that visit that blog and potentially the blogger if he is a fan of your comments.

Your goal should be to comment in a way that makes others click on your link. They might not click your link or opt-in at first, but if they see you are a repeat visitor and they start to trust you, they may in time. Keep at it and you will build up a list of free leads for your MLM.
