How an MLM Can Provide Retirement or Supplemental Income

retirement-jar-with-clock

I’ve stated a few times about how an MLM is a unique business concept in and of itself:

  • Low up-front costs compared to owning a small business;
  • Plug into an already well-established company with products, support, and training;
  • Constant development from successful entrepreneurs;
  • Unlimited earning potential;
  • Zero education requirement;
  • Automate your business through online tools;
  • Be your own boss.

Building Your MLM Can Last Generations

To some, it may sound too good to be true. The fact is, MLM’s are simple. However, there is a distinct difference between “simple” and “easy”. If you think about it, anything worthwhile in life takes hard work:

  • Meaningful relationships with loved ones;
  • Personal health & well-being;
  • Raising children;
  • Saving up for and planning travel and leisure;
  • Contributing to something worthwhile and fulfilling.

An MLM can offer someone the life they’ve always dreamed of. With hard work, dedication, and staying plugged in to daily, weekly, and monthly habits that generate financial freedom, it is very possible. Let’s talk about how MLM’s can provide supplemental and retirement income that last; not just today, or next year, but for years and decades to come for you and those with whom you choose to share it.

MLM For Supplemental Income

There are a few reasons why MLM businesses are perfect for building supplemental income for yourself:

  • Work it as a side hustle: If you’re worried that resigning from your current position would put you in an unfavorable position financially, you can begin working your MLM business as a side hustle. This means that while you begin to learn the product, develop plans with your mentors, and implement success strategies, you can sustain your current situation with your full-time or part-time job. The freedom of your own MLM business allows you to choose your own hours.
  • Build with your upline: In MLM, you are less of an employee and more of an equal partner. The people in MLM who are winning will expend as many resources as you need for you to win. It’s one of the greatest industries in terms of receiving the time and attention from successful people.
  • Build with your downline: The opportunities available to you as a leader in your MLM business are virtually endless. Time and time again, we hear about wealthy people who are unhappy. Why is this? Well, it comes down to fulfillment. Are you building something greater than yourself? Are you giving back to a worthwhile cause and developing others to do the same? The answer with MLM is yes. You can provide training, inspiration, advice, documentation, recommendations, and so much more when you make your MLM business less about you and more about helping others win. And in the end, when they achieve their goals, then so do you.
  • Millionaires have multiple streams of income: This rings true especially in the MLM industry. The average millionaire has five to seven streams of income, and with your team, so do you. Thanks to the MLM business model, your business volume (and therefore your profit) is generated by not one, not two, not three, but many individuals with common goals. By staying plugged in and being a leader in your team, you can create a healthy and thriving income that is as part-time or full-time as you make it.

It’s clear to see the benefits of amassing supplemental income through your MLM business. Not only that, but you are helping others to build the life that they’re after. As an introvert myself, it never ceases to amaze me that no matter how much someone likes the company of others or prefers that of themselves, how universally desired the trait of contribution is to every single human being alive.

MLM For Retirement Income

Now, let’s look into how your MLM business can tick the boxes of both short-term and long-term wealth creation. Because oftentimes we have the “here and now” problems of today/this week/this month in the forefront of our minds.

However, when done correctly, the MLM industry is capable of providing for you and your loved ones into the future. Mind you, if it was easy, then everyone would be doing it. But with the simplicity of this business, it makes sense how your expenses into retirement can be covered:

  • Working while you don’t: The beauty of leverage is infinite. What I mean here when I say “leverage” is capitalizing on the opportunity of passive income. Just as Bruno Mars gets paid each time a song of his plays on the radio, or a landlord gets paid every month when rent is due, you get paid for the work you’ve done in the past. This is mainly through the monthly auto-ship purchases if you sell goods, and the monthly membership fee if you sell services. It varies from company to company, and this is the general idea. When customers receive value through your offerings, then it is a win-win situation for you and for them.
  • A team that lives on even when you step back: Thanks to your demonstration of leadership, development, professionalism, respect, and kindness that you have shown over multiple years, the people in your team become leaders themselves, and that’s where the fun truly begins. You have shifted from the forefront to more of a consulting role. You have garnered a series of trainings and plug-and-play instructions, as well as a thriving community of like-minded individuals who want to win, and this combination boosts the success of everyone in your business. New leaders consistently prove themselves and you are no longer required to put in as much work as before, since others are now at that level.

Creating the Life You Want

All in all, the opportunities within the MLM industry are vast and plentiful, and we are not slowing down anytime soon. It is the perfect alternative for hard-working individuals who want to create supplemental income as well as retirement income through the beauty of togetherness, quality products, and leverage.

If this sounds like a worthwhile pursuit for you and your life goals, feel free to take a no-cost tour of the MLM business I have grown to love, and learn about how it works. You can contact me at any time and I will be more than happy to help, or you can read my story and learn about my background as a person interested in generating income online using modern techniques. May you find fulfillment in doing what you love.

How An MLM Can Grow Your CBD Business

investment3

Perhaps you have heard about the benefits of CBD products and you want to create your own CBD business. Maybe you have used CBD products and have seen, first-hand, how they can change the lives of people (or pets) dealing with common problems like pain, anxiety, and sleep.

Or perhaps, even, you have heard some of the hype about the CBD industry’s estimated growth from $600 million to $22 billion by 2022.

You may be asking yourself, “I believe in the value of CBD. But how can I grow a CBD business that is profitable and sustains in the long term?”

One answer to that question is building a multi-level marketing (MLM) business that sells CBD products.

Before the red flags and horror stories of pressuring friends and family take you out, consider that the MLM industry you have been exposed to and the MLM industry that exists today are two separate things. For example, those awkward calls to your brother or your best friend from high school are a thing of the past, thanks to the internet.

Let’s explore the topics of CBD and the MLM industry, and how building your CBD business as an MLM could in fact be the move you are looking for. To do that, we must first look at how an MLM operates in today’s world, its benefits as a business model, and how you can generate passive income with automated tools.

Benefits Of An MLM

As there are multiple types of businesses, running your CBD business through an MLM may be a choice you’d like to consider. Let’s take a look at the benefits of the structure of an MLM.

  • Low start-up cost: Usually, an MLM will have an initial, one-time fee to get started, with a monthly membership fee or promise to re-stock your inventory. The initial fee is normally in the few-hundred-dollar range. In comparison to a brick-and-mortar CBD retail store, which with rent, insurance, technology equipment, advertising, signage, interior decor, and professional services can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars, the initial fee to start an MLM is small.
  • You are your own boss: Simply put, you call the shots. Without the expense of hiring employees looming over your head, you can re-invest your earnings or pay yourself earlier.
  • Opportunity for passive income: Consider Bruno Mars, who writes a song once, then collects royalties every time that song is played from then on. Similarly, with your CBD business as an MLM, you will get paid for work you’ve done in the past. That means instead of trading dollars for hours with a salaried or hourly position, you can continue earning money regardless of if you work today with the concept of passive income. This isn’t to say that getting to this point is easy to do; if it was, everyone would be doing it. However, it is possible. As a network marketer, I have grown my business to the point of generating passive income and helping others achieve their financial and well-being goals.
  • Unlimited income potential: Unlike a salaried or hourly position, with an MLM you are in a compensation plan with no ceiling. With the Top 200 Income Earners in MLM companies all making passive income north of $1,000,000 per year, there is no cap on income potential. Goals like a few thousand dollars per month to pay your bills and provide discretionary income are achievable with hard work and dedication. Nothing worthwhile in life is easy.
  • No education requirements: One barrier that is very real for a lot of people is education. They can’t make more money than they do because they need certifications or a degree. The average four-year degree will cost between $35,000 and $140,000. With an MLM, there are no education requirements.
  • Automate your MLM business: As stated, today’s MLM industry is vastly different than that of traditional ideas of Amway and bugging people you love (or being the one being bugged, for that matter). How? Through automation. By employing methods such as pre-enrollment, sales funnels, and email response systems, you can flip the script. That is, pre-qualified leads will come to you. Gone are the days of nervousness and landlines being land mines.
  • Constant training and development: While running your CBD business as an MLM, there are very often regional and national events where you are trained by the founders and top performers of your company. There is much to be learned from them. Furthermore, large repositories of free training in the form of audio and video exist to empower and enable you to reach your personal goals, financially or otherwise.
  • Tax deductions: If running your CBD business online, consider a few of these common tax deductions you can claim in part on your tax return: wireless internet, your computer, your mobile device, and any travel expenses related to your business.

Benefits Of A CBD Business

In addition to the benefits of an MLM, CBD has a number of benefits in and of itself, which is why the industry is currently in the stage of growth that it’s in. Let’s have a look at the benefits of CBD products and the sorts of issues they help to address.

  • Anxiety: CBD can calm the mind and body. Oftentimes, people can suffer from anxiety, such as obsessive thinking, fear in public, on airplanes, in vehicles, speaking in front of others, or even reliving traumatic experiences. CBD has been known to slow down the mind and relieve the effects of anxiety.
  • Sleep: The relaxing effect of CBD can help people sleep. With roughly 60 million people in the U.S. suffering from sleep-related health issues, the market for helping people getting sufficient shut-eye is large. Your impact is tangible, especially given how coveted sleep is for human beings.
  • Chronic pain: Similarly, around 50 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain, with 40% of them having high-impact chronic pain, which severely impacts life and work activities. Users of CBD often report relief from pain.
  • For athletes: Whether it’s pain, the frequency of travel, or the nerves of performing at a high level, athletes can use CBD for a variety of reasons.
  • For pets: Just like their human counterparts, pets can get nervous. Personalities, types of breeds, and past experiences can play a role in the quality of life of pets, and CBD can help in this regard.

 

How Growing Your CBD Business As An MLM Is Smart

Now that we have covered the benefits of the MLM industry and CBD products, we can finally delve into the reasons why combining the two may be a smart idea.

  • CBD is on-trend: When the wave of momentum is strongest, the buzz of a community is too. As such, since MLM is about teams, mentors, and learning from one another, CBD and its current state of hype makes it a viable option for using an MLM to start your business.
  • Done for you: There are already plug-and-play CBD MLM’s such as Hempworx that have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into products, shipment, websites, and research. With features like auto-ship and warehouses of inventory, all you need to do is plug in and leverage what’s already been done.
  • CBD is a recurring expense: Since your CBD business is centered around generating revenue, the fact that users of CBD must replenish their supplies plays into your favor. This means that customers with whom you grow your reputation and trust will become repeat buyers with you. This is a cornerstone in any solid and long-lasting business.
  • CBD has a wide audience range: Given the range of problems that CBD can help solve, such as sleep, pain, and anxiety, the number of people you can help means that the number of people who can join your business or buy from your MLM store is equally as large.

As such, we covered the benefits of MLM’s, CBD, and why running your CBD business as an MLM may be a smart move. CBD is here to stay, and the results of the products speak for themselves.

What’s more, the MLM industry has evolved into a business model that can leverage the beauty of the internet and automation to grow your revenue without having to annoy relatives and friends. I’ve used this process, as an introvert myself, to generate passive income for myself and for others, and now it’s my full-time job.

If this is something you may be interested in, feel free to take a tour of Hempworx. Also, consider continuing your research into this topic of your CBD business. Knowledge is power.

How To Generate More Leads For Your MLM

ecommerce-lead-generation-8

If you are new to network marketing or mlm, you may have been asked to create a list of everyone you know, so you can share the products and business opportunity with them. Most people actually don’t write down every name of the people they know. They will write down 5-10 names of the “easy” ones typically. These are the people that they believe need it the most or won’t laugh at them because they are building a business like this.

Unfortunately, this generally does not lead to anyone joining who will actually build the business. Yes, sometimes you brother in law will join and build, but generally the people on your friends and family list that join do so, to support you or they don’t want to tell you no. Once you have been told by people that you thought would see what you do, now what?

Warm and Cold Market Leads

Now you will be told to start talking to your warm market. These are people who are your acquaintances. People on your Facebook friends list. You don’t really talk to them in person so how do you approach them about a business opportunity? As always, I say talk to your upline for advice first. They are the ones who are there to help you directly and want you to be successful.

Using social media can be an effective way to promote your products and opportunity, you just have to do it in a non spammy way. That upsets people and they will unfollow you. Depending on your product you may also get blocked by FB & Instagram. For instance, CBD and whole plant hemp products. They are legal but FB won’t let you use paid advertising to promote them. You can still post on your FB fan page though for free.

You need to find a balance between your curated information, you own information and funny or inspiration posts to capture your audience and then be consistent with your posts so your fans look forward to your posts. You are looking to build trust so that when they are ready to take a look at your products or business opportunity, they will check out yours.

How do you generate cold market leads?

For most of us this is the make or break point in the business. If you have not built the team you will need to grow your team from the above group then you have two choices. Work with people you don’t know or quit. To many people unfortunately choose to quit. This is one of the reasons why so many people quit mlm.

In reality it is the fear of talking to strangers that kills it for them. I understand it I felt the same way when I got started. I am an introvert so it is difficult for me to get comfortable talking with people I don’t know. Years ago, there were no choices about how to do it. You had to walk up to a person and talk or call them on the phone. You remember that thing called a “land line”. For most of us it was more of a land mine. We were so afraid to use it because we thought it will blow up or something.

What now?

Now with today’s technology we can use many different ways to reach people who may be interested in what you are doing. Today I am only sharing my business opportunity with people who are already looking and who want to see what I am doing. That alone removes any fear you may have. I teach my team several different methods on how to generate leads for their business from the largest group of people on earth. The ones you don’t know…yet. Today I can share my opportunity with hundreds of people each day. Sure, not everyone will decide to join my team, but that is the same with anything. It is all a numbers game and you need to share what you have to as many people as possible every day.

My system is one step better because it allows them to pre-enroll on my team while they learn more about the products, compensation plan, etc. while I build a team under them to show them that it works. In effect they get to be on the team without actually joining right away. It is like a test drive in a way. I use an email response system that sends the lead a series of emails regularly to help educate and motivate them to learn more and join. Since I have built a team under them that is generating volume, they have something to lose if they don’t join. Hopefully the company you work with has the same thing. If not, you may want to build your own system or join my team and use my system.

I use as many methods as possible to generate leads and I shoot for 20-30 leads per day minimum on average. This will translate into several people joining the team and many of those will end up being business leaders and they will build good size, lucrative businesses that can generate an ongoing residual income.

You have to face the reality that it will take hundreds or thousands of people to join your business team. It takes some time to do that and remember it won’t just be you doing that work. In the beginning it will just be you and me. As you and I build the team, there will be more people like you who duplicate the methods and pretty soon you will have dozens of leaders sharing the products and opportunity to additional 1000’s. The growth starts to accelerate and reaches critical mass.

Give yourself time to be successful

In today’s Amazon.com world we want everything to be instant. We don’t like to wait for anything, even success. Unfortunately, you can’t rush that. You can go faster or slower but you cannot rush it or skip steps. It’s like losing weight. It takes just as long to lose it as it does to gain it. For me it seems it takes much longer to lose than to gain. Success is like that too. You have to build todays for results tomorrow. It will not be instant and everyone starts at a different place, with their skills, knowledge, finances and work ethic.

Earn while you learn

One of the best things about having your own MLM business is that you can learn as you go. You don’t have to know everything before you get started. In fact, you only need to know the basics to get started which take less than one day to learn. I work with all levels of people. Many have never heard of or seen a mlm type business. Some are like me, and have been involved in network marketing in the past.

 

The bottom line is you can learn to generate leads for your business from the cold market more easily and with more time efficiency than ever before. Since they come to you it is easy to share what you are doing and help them to join your team. I am happy to help you do it, just let me know.

Why Generating Content Makes Sense in Network Marketing and MLM

content

In this article I am going to share with you what content is and why you should use it to generate a larger team. Have you ever been told that the key to building a network marketing business is duplication? I am sure you have and yet you may have wondered how do you get that to happen. Is it something that you can direct? Are you duplicating anyone? Should any of your team duplicate you? Do you really want them to?

All really good questions that should get you thinking more about duplication. Typically, in network marketing it means that you are not the only person who is working your business. Since other are a part of your team, they are working their businesses and you can earn a percentage from the volume they generate. We used to explain it with the quote from J. Paul Getty. He said “I would rather earn 1% of 100 men’s efforts than 100% of my own effort.” Clearly this is one of the ways he got rich. It is also how franchises work. The corporate office gets a percentage of what your individual franchise location generates. Combined it is more than any single location. This is best illustrated by McDonald’s Corp.

What is Content?

It is the creation of information for the purpose of attracting, educating, motivating and in our case leading people to learn more about your products and/or business opportunity. I use many forms of content. Examples of content is this website of articles as well as YouTube videos. The creation of videos, articles, e books and other media can be one of the best forms of duplication for you. You don’t have to be the one to create it and, in many cases, you should have a combination of content that is curated by you from others content, and some that is created by you.

Think of it this way. If you have to grow your business only using the person to person contacting methods it will be a very time-consuming process and you may be limited by your time availability, location, and comfort level etc. That being said I do believe you may be able to improve your sponsorship rate because you can talk with the person and answer objections. That is what typical network marketers are trained to do.

Most people are not able to get comfortable doing the steps above on a consistent basis and thus never reach the levels of success they wanted. From my personal view point I don’t like being on the hunt for prospects everywhere I go. It seems hard to have the correct posture if you are always having to approach people and ask about their interest levels in looking at a business idea to earn extra income. Most people today are not comfortable being prospected by a stranger. Unfortunately, our society has so many scam artists that everyone is on guard, so I find this very ineffective and obsolete.

How content can duplicate your efforts?

Instead I focus on creating content that allows people who are on the internet already searching for the type of products I offer and the type of business opportunity I have. The duplication factor of this content creation comes in when you realize that a video, article or e-book can continue to be found by people for years after you create it. It is like an electronic person working 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days per year for you. That is how you can create an ongoing lead generating effort for your business.

IN this business of residual incomes this is a residual lead generator. It’s ideal because you have no fear to overcome. It does the talking for you and keeps on going.

There are new people every day who start the search for a product to solve their problem or an income opportunity to help them financially. I create and use content to build my own network marketing team and teach others how to duplicate this pattern, over and over.

For years this content will continue to work on your behalf leading people to what you have. Now that’s the kind of duplication I want and so do you.

How I Use Automated Sales Funnels to Build Network Marketing Teams

open meetings

I have been involved in network marketing for a number of years now. I built a large team in the Amway business back in the early 1990’s. I was in the group under Dexter Yager, Don Wilson and Randy Haugen, clearly three of the most successful network marketers ever. Eventually this team broke apart and I left the business and applied what I had learned to conventional businesses.

A few years ago I started looking for another network marketing opportunity but I knew there had to be a better way to build them. The old school ways of making cold contacts and meeting people in restaurants and coffee shops just doesn’t work as well today. People are way too busy. They are very leery of meeting with a stranger and who really has the time for no shows anymore.

What’s worse is then you are taught that you need to teach others on your team how to cold contact people and let’s be honest that’s usually where most people quit sharing the products and the business opportunity. If the business is built on duplication but no one wants to duplicate the old methods what do you do? I knew I did not want to do that again. Sure those person to person methods work but there are far fewer people willing to actually do that. In the old days we called those people leaders.

Face2Face+Networking

Here is what we used to do.

  1. Cold contact people in person or on the phone
  2. Ask if they are interested in other ways of making money
  3. Show them the “plan”
  4. Follow up with them
  5. Answer questions and sign them up
  6. If they don’t sign up right away continue to chase them until they disappear or get involved to shut you up and then do nothing in the business.

Kind of kidding about that last step but not really. Sure it can work but then if they do get in they say to themselves eventually; “do I have to do what my sponsor did to get me in”? You say “of course, and I will teach you” and there gone.

Most people have a fear of speaking in front of groups of people they don’t know. They fear it more than death according to some surveys. And to build this business after the friends and family have joined or laughed; or some of both they quit.

I could not see doing that again. Trying to convince people they can do it is exhausting and not fun for any of us. There had to be a better way! After searching and reviewing how the fastest growing network marketing companies were doing things. They all had a few things in common.

landing page

  • Personalized Websites and landing pages(example above) for each distributor- These are used to introduce people to the products and the business.
  • Lead generating techniques- You have your cold contact leads coming to you not the other way around. They get your information and can tour the products, business and compensation plan
  • Automated email responder systems- The company emails all leads for you with pre-written emails message providing information and encouragement. This does the follow up for you.
  • Automated sales funnels with a “fear of loss” approach
  • Have a pre enrollment function-This allows people to be placed on your team in a temporary spot with people being placed under them right away. This shows them that the business is being built and gives them something to lose if they don’t upgrade and lock in their spot.
  • Cellphone apps that can be used to build your business-access to videos for promotion and training, back office details and even business enrollment functions
  • Ability to build and online, offline or both
  • Are a binary structure- Amway and others were using a 6-4-2 model that was not easily sustainable for most people who build this type of business part time. How could you build 6 legs?

Some of the benefits are clear. Can you imagine having a business where your leads find you and want to learn what you are doing and how they can join?

This is the perfect way for introverts (like me), and time strapped busy people to still build an additional income in their spare time. I literally spend 1 hour per day and have been able to build a sizeable business. So can you!

After searching around I found companies that had all or some of these things and many still had none! Many companies are still having their people use the old methods and are run by people who are corporate business men not network marketers  who really understand how to build a large organization of business owners and entrepreneurs.

That’s exactly what I have been doing. I equate this building approach to online dating in this article HERE. I teach people how to get their business opportunity found by 1000’s of interested people looking for a way to start their own business. I can teach you too!

If you are looking for my #1 recommendation on Network Marketing Companies that have all of these benefits in place. Take the FREE TOUR HERE NOW!

How I Use Online Dating Methods To Build Network Marketing Teams

onlinedating

If you have previously been involved in a network marketing company during the 1990’s or even later you may have been introduced to the business and its products by way of a face to face meeting. It was probably a 1 on 1, or a home meeting or possibly an open opportunity meeting at a hotel. That is how I came to be aware of the Amway business opportunity back in 1989.

I call that the “old school” method for building the business and in my opinion, it can really limit your business growth and velocity. 1 on 1’s are still the best way to explain the business to your friends and family to be sure. But is it the best way to share with your warm market or cold markets?

In my opinion it is not, and I will tell you why. Today we use all kinds of online and virtual methods of staying in contact and communicating with people we have not met in person. Think social media, right? Today we are using the internet to do just about everything and why not? Today we can even meet our future significant other online before meeting in person. It’s called online dating.

WHAT IS THE ONLINE DATING METHOD?

When I joined the Amway business in 1989 there was no internet really and certainly no one was doing online dating. Yikes it all seemed ridiculous when it finally got rolling. Who would actually use an online dating service? That is not for me. I still recall when my first friend used it and found a great person who eventually he did marry. They are still happily together today. Why did he use this method? Well he was too busy with work. He did not want to go to bars and clubs. He wanted to find someone who was already “screened” for compatibility to some degree. In actuality it all made sense, and it really does work. Why not apply that method to network marketing?

In Network Marketing or MLM as it is referred to sometimes what are we really doing? We are looking for compatible business partners. Just like with dating the two people can checked each other out before deciding to work together.

I use online tools to allow people who are looking for a business opportunity to find me, just like in online dating. It’s all very simple and very cool. They can take a free tour of my business. Check out the compensation plan, products and back office to determine if it is compatible with their goals and desired focus.

I can also establish their level of interest, commitment, experience and skills to determine if we can work together and if I have the time to invest in helping them get started and reach their goals. This is just like determining compatibility in the online dating process. Why shouldn’t you be able to reach out to others and have them be able to reach out to you, when we are looking for each other?

The fact is this process flat out works! I am looking for people interested in a business opportunity. There are many people looking for an opportunity. I just use online methods to connect the two groups and I teach others how to do the same thing.

time savings

TIME SAVINGS

One of the best things about network marketing is that it can produce time duplication. Meaning it removes the attachment of time and money from the equation. You no longer have to be income limited by the number of hours you can work. That’s what happens on the job, right? No one can personally work 24 hours a day, and that’s all we get each day.

It always seemed strange to me that we should limit ourselves to the constraints of time to limit how many people we can reach with our business opportunities each day. After all we want to duplicate our time not limit it. I can reach hundreds of people each day and generate 20-40 leads each day. There are few if any people who can do that using the “old school” methods of building network marketing.

Very few companies have supported the new methods and fewer yet even are aware of it. Today I can decide to reach out and generate leads in any state in the USA I want to focus on; or all of them if I want. This can also be done by reaching out into other countries of choice.

There are literally millions of people that I can connect together when they are each looking for each other.

SATURATION?

Some people who really understand this process I use and teach think that I can reach every person on earth and it will be “saturated” within a short period of time. Meaning everyone who wants to be involved; will be involved. I only wish that was possible. In reality it is not possible. Every day 1000’s of people who turn 18 years of age and are now eligible to start and own their own business. So, there is always a growing group of people who have never heard of what we do. Additionally, it is frequently about the right timing. Not everyone is open to a business opportunity at the same time. That openness changes over time depending on individual circumstances.

I hope this all gets you thinking out of the “old school” box just a little bit. Today network marketing businesses need to change and if the company doesn’t then you may need to consider adapting your methods fit today’s needs and learn to be the most effective you can be.

So if you think we might be a “match” then let’s discuss how we may be able to work together. Contact me. I can’t promise you anything but what have you got to lose?

Best Home Based Businesses

Can You Still Have The American Dream of Business Ownership?

It’s an interesting question to me actually. It may seem that today with all the large corporations merging and taking over the markets they’re in, is there still room for the average person to have their own business? From my vantage point the answer is YES! And it’s even easier today, than it has ever been.

INTERNET-BUSINESS

INTERNET BASED BUSINESS

I am old enough to remember the days before the internet. I know that was a long time ago right? When it began there were no business opportunities for the average American. It was all about the browsers, chat rooms and email back then. Netscape, AOL and others were trying to dominate it first. The start of being able to buy something online was in its infancy because no one knew how to take payments yet. Amazon was a baby still!

Today we can have our own online business that allows you to sell just about anything to anyone in the world. The “E-Commerce” term is not heard much any more because we are all used to shopping online and having the items show up the next day. Thanks to Amazon, we all have the expectations of see it now, get it now. So how can you take advantage of this?

You can have your own EBAY store or be an Amazon reseller. You can have an Etsy shop or just about any online business website you can dream of!

You can earn money by promoting others people products and websites through affiliate marketing too. The earning potential is pretty much limitless.

BRICK AND MORTAR BUSINESS

Is it still viable to have a successful brick and mortar store? I think the answer is a definite yes. There will still be the desire to have an experience and you can only get that when you visit a store and walk the aisles. Check out what Target and Walmart are doing lately. The motif has been changed to be more inviting. They have added back some old staples like music and lighting to make you want to stay longer. In some stores like Sprouts and others they have a lounge you can sit and enjoy eating your purchases all along with the obligatory free WI-FI. And even the world’s largest online retailer Amazon bought Whole Foods to have a physical store presence.

Some businesses will never be online 100%. You may want to consider starting a restaurant or other entertainment type business. The only concerns with conventional businesses is they are generally capital intensive and risky. If you have an online business you just don’t have the overhead, so you can start for a low investment and you don’t need to mortgage the house! Low investment equals lower risk!

HOME BASED BUSINESS

This one is a bit of a hybrid because most home based businesses are really run out of your home, but still may have a significant online presence. There are some that are home based, in that you are producing a product that is sold online and/or at regional shows or events. The lines are getting blurred. What about promoting your business online or using social media? Does that make it an online business? What if you accept order online and fulfil out of your home? Well you get the point.

MULTIPLE INCOME STREAMS

One interesting trend is being able to have more than one stream of income. There is  a trend where many companies are not hiring workers permanently any more. They are using contractors. This allows them to have the human resources on a per project or task basis. It may be more cost effective and they can be released easier and faster when the project is done. I know people who are more “freelance” in their work and are getting work from more than one source. Sounds a lot like having your own business. Tax benefits and all.

For many people there is the desire to start and own their own business in addition to working a job. This is for many reasons, including having extra income to live but also to have the extra things in life or set up a retirement income stream too.

Today it is even easier to have the American Dream of having your own business! You don’t have to quit your job to do it. You don’t need a second mortgage and you don’t need to risk everything. You can start small and build large. Earn while you learn.  If you have ever watched the popular TV show Shark Tank then you know all it takes is one idea to hit it big.

If it has always been your dream then don’t wait! It is easy to start today. It won’t fall into your lap so just get started moving forward.

MLM and Network Marketing Training, Network Marketing For Engineers

The Best MLM Business For Engineers

If you are an Engineer or other technical professional you are probably earning good money but also understand that time is the most valuable resource, and that is in short supply. If you have money but no time to enjoy it what is the purpose???

TIME AND MONEY!

Ideally we need both right? Time and Money! Yes that’s it, isn’t it? As with most high paid professions it can take a lot of time investment into a career to be successful. So how can you get both time and money? You need to consider leveraging your time to get more of it. As long as we trade time for money you will eventually run out of time in the day. There’s only 24 hours day for each of us. But how can we leverage it better?

TIME LEVERAGING

The only way to get more time in your life is to be able to buy it back. You need to stop only trading time for money. The MLM or Network Marketing Business model works off a principle of time duplication. It is based on the J. Paul Getty phrase where he said ” I would rather get paid 1% of a hundred mens efforts instead of 100% of my own efforts”

That’s what the concept of network marketing and franchising is based on. In reality each and every one of us can use this method to build an income that is ongoing by building a team of like minded people who understand the power of the numbers in this model.

Consider this: If you asked most people if they would prefer to have a penny every day doubled or a million dollars they usually say the million bucks. But lets see how this would really lay out.

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12

Network Marketing is like that too. You don’t need to know a ton of people because if everyone just knows a few the numbers on your team will expand greatly. Remember it starts out slow but build over time.

WHAT SHOULD ENGINEERS LOOK FOR IN A MLM COMPANY?

If you are an engineer and understand everything we have just covered then what should you look for in a network marketing company? Here is my list of must haves:

  • Online Lead Generation System
  • Email Auto Responder to follow up
  • Online Sales Funnel Tool
  • Teaching and Training System
  • I growing product category that is consumable
  • Ability to work with like minded people
  • Excellent compensation plan with no income limits
  • Ability to work in your spare time
  • Little to no investment
  • No home, hotel or restaurant meetings
  • No need to attend rah rah functions
  • Stable company financial position
  • Most important Introverts can build it successfully

If you are like me and are better with computers and machines than people you can still build a second income that could allow you to work less hours and spend more time with your computer or robots. You can also invest that money into your retirement or even retire early if you wanted too. Who knows, you may even be able to buy a ticket on the first passenger space flights soon! It’s up to you and yes you can do it your way!

How Hard Is it To Build A Network Marketing Business?

wealth-generators-pyramid

To me this is an interesting question. It’s really all relative to what each person has already accomplished in their life and what they have experienced. In the beginning it was very difficult for me to build a network marketing business.

It was 1989 and a friend from high school asked me if I ever looked at other ways of making money? I had already had a few conventional businesses that failed. I still had the dream of being a successful business owner, so I listened to the Amway business plan. It looked something like the image above. It seemed to me that it was a great way to start a business with very little investment other than time. Since I had finally paid off all of my business loans and credit accounts from my old businesses I was not to open to investing a lot of money.

The network marketing business needed time and duplication. What I did not figure on was that not everyone was looking for a business opportunity. Many people are just fine with working a job until they can collect social security. Now what? I was assuming that most people were like me. Wrong!

NOT EVERYONE IS LIKE YOU

That’s the first lesson in Network Marketing I learned. If I wanted to build this type of business I would need to learn how to find people who were open minded to a business opportunity. People who are willing to work for themselves. People who can invest time over the next 2-5 years to build an income that is reoccurring in their spare time. That actually is not hard to do, but you need to ask the questions. My issue was I was very uncomfortable talking with people; even the ones I knew. For other people like me this is where it gets hard. The biggest issue I think most people face is rejection. They don’t want to hear the word “no”. That was not my issue but I needed to overcome my fear of talking to people. It also required the mindset that I had something they would want and that not everyone would be able to qualify for it. I had to learn what is called posture.

Eventually I was able to learn how to do this and my business began to grow. One essential you will need to build yours is to have people know what you are doing. If no one knows then you won’t have anyone joining you. Sounds simple but you would be surprised how many people join then do not tell anyone they in involved. How will they ever be able to build a team?

GET PROACTIVE!

Now its much easier to generate leads in my network. I now have people who are looking for me. They will look for you and what you are doing too. The key today is to help them find you. You don’t need to go finding them. Thousands of people each day are looking for a new business opportunities, just like I was. I started searching using the internet and started looking for the best network marketing opportunity available. If  I was to wait to be asked, person to person it may have been a long wait. You see I am like a lot of people very busy and not really very accessible. If I was going to wait until I was cold contacted it might never happen. I had to go looking.

This is what makes one of the harder things to do in the “old” way of building networks a much easier task. Yes, there are still people who don’t rely on any online methods but they will never be able to extend the reach that you can. The old way of building required us to drive many miles, make a lot of cold contacts and even call out of the phone book to find prospects.

Of course today I talk to people I meet about my opportunity and use the online methods. But building online and offline work best.

HOW HARD IS IT TO BUILD?

The answer is compared to what? Compared to not having a business of your own it’s easy. Compared to building a conventional business with a lot of debt, pressure and risk? It’s not hard at all. Sometimes I wish it cost $20,000 to join network marketing businesses. This way you would only have the really serious builders. Can you imagine if you had a few really good builders working with you on your team? Together you could crush it and build a multi-million dollar business together. That being said it would also eliminate a lot of excellent people who don’t have that kind of money to invest. In fact you can start this business with almost no money at all. That gives everyone an opportunity to go from zero to millionaire if they are willing to work for it.

In Network Marketing you only need to find a few builders and you can develop a six figure income per year. It’s no different than if you had a franchise business; like Subway Sandwiches. You would want to own a few really good locations. If you just owned one you may be able to earn as much as you would on a job. You would probably need to work your one location and to free up your time you need to be able to buy it back, right? That requires being able to duplicate your time. As long as your trading your time for money you will have a limit on your income. No one can work more than 24 hours in a day.

DUPLICATION WHAT DOES IT MEAN ACTUALLY?

This is the key to earning big incomes in network marketing. You need to be able to teach a few leaders in your business how to build a successful business and then they will be duplicating what you learned to do and teach people on their teams. Once you have several builders or leaders doing this the business can grow very quickly. This is sometimes where people get crossed up. This is not pyramid building here. You are not getting people to join your team so you can get rich. It does not work that way. This is where you help other people become successful then the earnings your get from each one will add up to a lot of earnings for you.

It does not work the other way around and you are not looking for a bunch of people to go sell for you. You want business owners just like you!

Today it’s easier than ever to build a network marketing business. We have lots of online and offline tools. We have apps, websites and landing pages. We have funnels and email responders that can be used to help bring people up to speed on the opportunities we have available.

We have the ability to help the people who are looking for opportunities to find us and for us to build teams faster than ever before while staying in contact through phone calls, texts, blogs and videos. We can teach through video, webinars and conference calls as well as live video broadcasts over our cellphones and home computers. We can connect with more people in more ways than ever before. To me it is much easier than just about any other kind of business and with the incredibly low startup cost of virtually zero. The payback is almost immediate. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s what you choose to do with it that will make the difference in your income. Give it a try!
