How to Avoid the Top 5 Mistakes First-Time Network Marketers Make

There’s no doubt We’re all prone to make a few mistakes as most first-time marketers do,thankfully we have  the lessons to learn from the mistakes of others so that history doesn’t repeat itself.

In network marketing, plan B is a must for when things don’t go as planned.

Below are some of the most common mistakes first-time network marketers make.

  1.  LACK OF DEVOTION:

Many first-time network marketers come into the field with a traditional business market state of mind and a 9-5 mentality.Which is a mistake. In order to fully succeed in network marketing, it’s all about the commitment, devotion, organization and undivided attention you will need  for your business to grow exponentially.

Although the upfront investment to purchase the product or sample kit is extremely lower than the traditional business, but you will need to put your business and marketing skills into play and pronto!

committing yourself to attend as many conference calls, events, seminars as possible will put you on the right track to success!

2 LACK OF ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS:

It is crucial that you make the time to be organized; here I show you how to efficiently manage your time.

When it comes to organization, we are all born with our unique DNA, and perhaps some of us inherit organization genes. Regardless of our genetic inheritance, we all have the ability to acquire some level of organizational skills. It is not necessary to go to extremes to keep yourself organized, but being well prepared and then diligently following through will help make each task easier and more efficient, which will result in better time management.    Time is money.Time is money

Like success, being organized comes over time. Your desired result must be crystal clear before you can prepare for it.

3. CHOOSING THE WRONG COMPANY:

Always make sure to be well informed with  thorough due diligence.

To do so, start by researching the company profile to make sure the company is financially stable. If possible, set up a meeting with the management team to determine their integrity, management style and track record.

Don’t disregard the compensation plan. Walk away from fast-money making programs, better yet, run, run fast from these type of programs. 90% of them will make a huge hole in your pocket and a very costly mistake.

Now let’s talk about the products… now is the perfect time to put that old saying into action: “preach what you teach! “You should always feel comfortable using the product you are selling to friends, family and acquaintances, and the product being offered should have real world value and not be over-priced.

4. A LACKLUSTER PROSPECT LIST:

Building positive relationships is key to your success in this field. Not having a full prospect list is a huge failure due to the fact that your new network marketing business is all about prospect sponsoring.

To begin, start populating a list with the obvious; friends and family. If you don’t like the idea of asking family, or close friends then use the power of 10. Find 10  acquaintances who  might be interested in your business, still a little unsure,then advertise the old fashioned way , put an ad in your local paper shop, your hairdressers ,in any free ads publication,anywhere where there is a good flow of people. Join the gym, hit up your local coffee shop

Believe me, soon enough the prospect list will grow.

5. FAILING TO BE PERSISTENT:

Persistence is having a vision of where you are and where you want to be and having the willpower to fulfill your dreams. When it comes to defining your vision and the life you dream of, you have two choices:

1. Accept your circumstances as they are…

2. Take ownership of your vision, and empower yourself with the willpower to draw a line in the sand and move forward.

If you empower yourself with the second choice, the synergy of vision and willpower will equal the persistence required to meet your goals.

These 3 Network Marketing Success Concepts Will Transform Your Business Forever

If you are serious about generating success in network marketing, you are going to want to pay attention to this powerful article. Success in network marketing does not happen by accident. It requires great discipline and great focus on the right principles. The laws I will cover here will allow you to be on your way to great success.

  • Work With The Willing

The first law you want to be aware of is that you have to be willing to work with those who want to work. In your network marketing career, you will bring many people into your organization. Therefore, it is vital to understand that you don’t have enough time to dedicate an equal proportion to everyone.

Focus most of your time working with those who are showing you that they are serious about the business. If you spend your time trying to convince or chase those who don’t show commitment, you will live in constant frustration and with little results. By focusing on the right people who actually want to succeed you will be well on your way to massive success.

  • Have Faith In Your Company

If you want others to join your company and to believe in it, you have to believe in it first. It is vital that you become a client of the products or services that your company offers. You cannot expect your recruits to do something that you are not willing to do. If you don’t show faith in what your company offers, you cannot expect your recruits to show faith themselves.

In your mind, you have to believe that you are representing one of the greatest companies in the world. You are representing the company which is going to allow you to reach financial freedom. By having this attitude, you will never be shy when it comes to sharing your opportunity with others, including family and friends.

  • You Will Go As Far As You Take Them

The second principle that you have to understand is that you will only go as far as you take your team. As a leader, your focus should be on helping your team be successful. instead of focusing just on your own results, try to change your mindset and focus on the results of your team.

The truth is that the fastest way to achieve your dreams is to help others achieve theirs. This is why it is important that you make it your goal to become the best leader you can become. When you do this you place yourself on an upward spiral of success. Once you become a great leader, others will follow you naturally.

  • Summary

You can be as successful as you want to be, but it can only happen if you make the commitment to follow these powerful laws. Always identify your top leaders and work with them. Don’t forget to have complete faith in your company and your products. Finally, always remember that you will only go as far as you take your team. Always stay focused on these concepts and you will practically guarantee your success.

Instagram a marketers dream.

Instagram a marketers dream providing them with everything they could ever ask for.

If you’re a newbie or even a seasoned marketer, we know the importance of building our list.

However looking on the web for traffic sources whether paid or free takes time and often a lot of money.

In previous posts I’ve talked about methods via social media ,and using blogging to grow your audience and your list .

How many times have you heard the term……..

The money is in the list”? Frankly that is a little misleading the money is in the relationship you have with your list.

People buy from people who they trust and like period.

Social media is “BIG” actively using it grows one’s presence and ultimately gives  authority and credibility. That doesn’t mean sitting at a  PC sending posts all day.  There are programs available which can automatically schedule posts they just need to be set up first, once done it’s set and forget 

We all know the popularity of Google and Facebook and vie for the #1 spot. The third contender to that race, is “INSTAGRAM

Developed in October 2010 it grew in popularity and by 2012 had over 100 million users. In April of that year Facebook purchased it for US$1 billion.

To date Instagrams Engagement is 57 times greater than Facebook and 127 times greater than Twitter.

So if you are serious about branding yourself, building a list and followers “Instagram” is a no-brainer, to exploit this medium it’s wise to learn how to use it properly, there are training videos on the web but the best I believe is “Instapro

Conducted via webinar trainings with support should it be required. The training is given by  Millionaire Mentor Jason Stone who grew his following to 2 million over a 2 year period. MAKES A WHOLE LOT OF SENSE TO LEARN FROM THE BEST.

The “F” word, I don’t mean fear or anything else which may spring to mind.

I’m talking about failure with a capital “F”.

Why is it that so many would be internet marketers fail?, the statistics site 95%, of start ups fail within a few months.

Now I’m not saying it’s easy because it isn’t regardless of what people say. You have to have the mental attitude to succeed. No one gets it right first time out , listen to the stories of the big earners, Chris Rock,Matt LLoyd, Shaquir Hussain , Paul Lynch, the list goes on, they all had setbacks but stuck at it and so should you.

3 Elements for Affiliate Marketing Survival.

affiliate

Every affiliate marketer is always looking for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Sometimes they think it is a magic formula that is readily available for them. It’s a little more complicated than that. It is just good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication.

These are tactics that have worked  with online marketing before and are continuing to work in the online marketing affiliate  world of today. With these top three marketing tips, you’ll be able  to increase your sales and survive in the affiliate marketing online.

What are these three Elements?

1. Use unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Don’t lump them together just to save some money on web hosting. Have separate sites focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site of the specific product you are marketing.

writing articles that highlight the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try to read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top right of your page so they  cannot be missed.  Create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their in boxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big if they do not avail of your products and services.

3. Get targeted traffic. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that’s focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.

SIX Methods to get leads

Six methods to get leads, getting leads to your site and offer is the fundamental first rule of IM/AFFILIATE Marketing regardless of what you have been previously told or read.

Traffic again you may say, but what of sales.?

Countless articles and books have been written on ways to generate traffic,and I suspect countless more will be, each individual has a different method that they say works for them, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will work for you.

Depending on what type of marketing you are into, whether you have your own business or an affiliate to one of the license rights programs your objective is the same the only difference is that the latter all you need to do is drive traffic to the sales funnel, then the telesales team take over.

So what are the methods ?

  • PAID AND FREE

  • SOLO ADS       Paid

  • BANNER ADS    Paid

  • BLOG                 Free

  • SAFELISTS     Paid/Free

  • ROTATORS.  Paid/Free

  • CO-OPS.         Paid/Free

Solo ads

Solo ads are stand-alone advertisements, meaning your message goes out alone without any others attached.

Put simply, some internet marketers/ vendors will send your ad to their list.

Costs vary from vendor to vendor. look for a few vendors and see what they offer, they’ll usually have contact details so contact them ask questions and effectively scrutinize them as if you were employing someone,asking if they’ve promoted your niche or company before ,whether they use rotators etc. Another point to ask is when can they send the solo. Never buy a solo ad without contacting the vendor.

Banner ads

A banner ad is another form of online advertising which entails embedding an advertisement into a web page.

It is intended to attract traffic to a website by linking to the website of the advertiser. Banners function the same way as traditional advertisements are intended to function:

notifying consumers of the product or service and presenting reasons why the consumer should choose the product.

Banner ads differ in that the results for advertisement campaigns may be monitored real-time and may be targeted to the viewer’s interests.

These advertisements can be annoying as they distract from a web page’s actual content. Don’t get confused by the term Banner, as when building your site or Social Media page you have a header picture which is termed a banner.

Blog

A blog is information consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page ,unlike a post in Facebook,Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject orimages-52 topic, ranging from politics to sports. Others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, digital images.

It is a good way of building your list organically, they can be monetized by placing links to various offers you have, but they should not be used as a glorified billboard. Revenue earned from blogs can be quite high , the only drawback is that ,that revenue isn’t instant, you could be writing content everyday for months and see little return of followers or income.

Usually before you start blogging you need to find out what your targeted audience want to read about, primarily if you are able to solve a problem regarding business issues, this can be done by posting surveys.

SAFELISTS

A safe list is a group of like minded people, in the marketing field, you sign up and in exchange for displaying your offers you read other members offers, a little like “you scratch my back,I’ll scratch yours” the only downside is that your inbox will be filled with e-mails which you could mistake for spam. It would be advisable to have a separate e-mail address another benefit from safe lists is the opportunity to make joint ventures with fellow members,and if lucky even make a few customers. There are quite a few on the net which you can find via Google.

ROTATORS

Rotators or traffic exchanges as they are also known by are. simply a URL or web address that stores all the web page locations that you want to use in your rotation system. Suppose you had 10 websites/ webpages that you wanted to send traffic to – you could store all these different 10 URL’s in your rotator, and then every time someone visited the rotator URL they would actually get a different site .

The key thing to understand is that Traffic Exchanges will often send the same visitors to your site over and over. So if you only have one site then people will be seeing the same page repeatedly. Its much better to get people to visit different pages or different sites – because if they weren’t interested in the first page they might like the second or third site!!

The golden rule is always use a rotator wherever possible.

If you are running multiple URL’s it would be a good idea to use a tracker, as you will need to see which are performing and which aren’t, then you can delete the under performing ads/sites.

There are a number of tracking programs available on the web.

CO-OPS

Co-Ops are becoming more popular in the traffic exchange marketing, arena With good reason, traffic exchange co-ops allow you to get your ads seen at a large variety of places without having to earn credits at each of these sites. The debate starts with the difference in owner purchased traffic or member generated traffic .

There are two types of co-op owner based and member based.

OWNER BASED

This is when the owner of the co-op decides which traffic exchanges to purchase traffic from and then buys the traffic from the selected traffic exchanges.

MEMBER BASED

This type of co-op encourages members to put a specified link in rotation at their favorite traffic exchanges. Each hit to this link provides the co-op member with a credit so they can get their own ads viewed. Basically the traffic you have earned at one TE is exchanged for traffic at another TE. Members of this type of co-op can earn their credits with this exchange link or they can purchase credits. The traffic you receive in return can be from anywhere and, in most cases, is un-filterable.

What exactly is the definition of “FREE”?

 

 

According to the Oxford English dictionary

Free-

adverb

  1. without cost or payment.

Adjective

able to act or be done as one wishes; not under the control of another.

verb

remove something undesirable or restrictive from.

When we look on the internet or in papers/magazines there are adverts wooing us with free offers, with Christmas only a matter of weeks away the stores are offering “free credit”images-28

Like fools we sign up Max the credit buying gifts for family and friends only to be slammed with a hefty invoice in the new year. Then you get bombarded over the following months with free offers dropping into your inbox like flies.

Free is used in advertising to entice us to enquire and ultimately buy something. We are under no obligation to buy but once these companies have our email they go out of their way to get us to part with our money.

Special offers, one time flash sales.       download

When we’re looking for ways to make extra money online we get “join for free, earn extra for free, sign up now. Etc. No card required”, the list is endless. All we are doing is looking for something that will give us a few extra dollars a month,just to make things easier that don’t really work.

What if I told you of a way you could make commissions of 1k,3k,5k? For  a 7 dollar investment.? Would you be more responsive?

Anyone who has an ounce of sense will know nought is free there is always a cost “TIME” What’s the saying ? Time is Money.

A little Story.

Many years ago I answered one such offer 60% off Double glazing free quote. For us Baby boomers I think you may relate.

Long story short. Rep arrives with samples, sales pitch on the advantages of the toughened glass and security features, quick survey, the deadly silence while looking at the samples and brochures while rep works out a quote. Expensive even with 60% off, you say “no” immediate reply is “we offer free credit terms”, as he produces forms to sign. Tempted but no, and say no again, call the boss time. “ we can let you have it at xxx, but you must place order today. Still you don’t want to commit, saying that you’ve got several companies coming to give a quote. Four hours later Rep leaves without a sale.

What has that to do with looking for ways to make extra money or indeed Free. In some respects nothing, except the rep was trying to get a sale, even when being told no. On the internet you can just unsubscribe and be done with.

Moral – You’ve spent your“ Free time”, which could have been better served.download-5
