First of all let me start off by saying that I may offend some people by what you are about to learn. MLM and Network Marketing isn’t for everyone. This is a business and you have to treat it like one. There are no “FREE RIDES” in this world and everyone that is successful has gotten their because of their hard work and dedication. So if you are looking to “GET RICH QUICK” without putting forth any real effort or work, you have come to the wrong place and may as well stop reading right now and continue looking for that magic bullet that doesn’t exist.

So unless you plan on winning the lottery soon, you need to change your way of thinking if you want to see a change in your results. The type of person it takes to succeed in any MLM home based business are those who are determined, focused, and passionate about doing whatever it takes to achieve their success. However those who are looking to make quick cash without putting in any real effort are almost always destined to fail. So take a good look in the mirror and tell me which category you fit into right now.

Notice that I did say RIGHT NOW… Because everyone who is willing change and make things happen can become successful. But until you make that decision to change things, you are more than likely to continue getting the same unfavorable results in your life and any business venture that you try.

So what does it take to be a success? How do you make things change in your life? How do you increase your odds of success? Like I said before there is no magic bullet or system that will do it for you, but the answer is actually quite simple but its not easy. Its actually a simple concept but not always easy for everyone carry out. There are many variables that come in to play and I will cover the most vital ones in order for you get a better prospective on what it takes, and also what to look for before you get involved. So that finding success with a MLM home based business opportunity isn’t an agonizing process but a fun and enlightening experience for you.

There are 5 very important things to consider before getting involved with any MLM or Network Marketing home based business opportunity.

1.Do you have the

Commitment, Desire and

Drive that it takes for

your success?

2.You need a Great Product

and Company.

3.A fair and achievable

Compensation Plan.

4.Proper Training and

Support systems in place.

5.It has to be easy to

Duplicate.

Commitment And Desire.

Both of these go hand in hand because if you have enough desire you will have a commitment to achieve your desired goals. In other words, if you want achieve a goal badly enough, you’ll have the drive to work hard, and do whatever it takes to achieve your goal. When run into an obstacle and things get tough and you get frustrated you keep pushing forward. You don’t quit because something doesn’t go how you planned or just because you’re not seeing results you want right away. You have the fortitude to keep going.

A Great Product and Company.

You first should do some research on the company and the people who own the company. Is it a reputable company that is stable and worth you investment and time? Do the people who own the company have integrity? What is their level of experience with in the network marketing industry? Is this a company you can expect to be around for the long haul, not some here today gone tomorrow operation.

What is the product that you will be promoting? Ideally it should have low competition, be something that is in high demand and that people would want to buy on regular basis. Something that will add value to the customer that purchases it. Any opportunity you get involved with must have a Superior product that you believe in and feel comfortable promoting to others. Not some scamy sounding thing that promises you that you can make ton money for little or no effort on your part.

The Compensation Plan.

This determines how you will get paid so it is very important for you to understand. It shouldn’t be a compensation plan that nobody can figure out because it’s so complicated. It needs be a plan where you see success quickly and easily. Each time you experience a little success you’ll stay motivated to carry on. It should be a fair, obtainable plan that is easy for anyone to comprehend and figure out.

Proper Training and Support.

This is an extremely important factor to consider.
Does the company have systems in place for to you to learn about the product and company quickly and easily? You need to know that you will have the guidance and support to effectively get off to a fast and easy start to be a success. You want to join a team that is willing to help you succeed. You will need Mentors who are ALREADY SUCCESSFUL. People who know what it takes to the reach the goals and results you want to achieve. Too often people get involved in a MLM business opportunity, mainly network marketing where the person who brings them in to the business knows about a much, if not less than they do. You should join a company and an upline team that has training and support systems in place that will increase you chances of success. However you must be someone who is coachable and willing to do what you upline teaches you.

Easy To Duplicate.

You need to ask yourself is this something that I can easily implement and duplicate to get my desired results? Is there already a system in place that anyone can easily and do over and over again? Something that you can easily teach to the people who come on board under you. Success breeds success, and in network marketing there’s no better key to success than a duplicatable system.

So if you think your the right type of person who has the dedication and a strong desire to do whatever it takes make your dreams become a reality. If you are coachable and trainable, willing to take action and willing to grow. If that sounds like you then I can assist you  in building a business from home part time or full time. It may be possible your quest to find that opportunity has just ended. If you would like to find out more about an Network Marking opportunity that has all of the criteria that was outline above for your best chance of success. I encourage you to take a close look at the business that I am currently involved in. I only work with people who are serious about building additional income. I am looking for the team players, leaders, action takers and people who are ready to make their dreams come true.

Fill out the form below and you will be immediately be taken to a website to evaluate the business.

In my experience the biggest reason that people are skeptical about getting involved with a network marketing business opportunity is because many are flat out lied to. After they are lied to by their sponsor they they get false expectations and when those expectations are not met, they become upset and blame the company,or the industry itself. However there is a logical way to evaluate any networking business as well as the person who is inviting you to look at it before you get involved. If you know what to look for you will be better equipped to recognize the truth and make an informed and intelligent decision. The fallowing are some common lies you need to be aware of when you evaluate any opportunity.

Lie # 1- You will get rich overnight.

One of the biggest things to question is how some
“Joe Schmo” made $20,000 the first week he was involved. 99.9% of the time it never happened or they are leaving out some element of their story that makes it nearly impossible to duplicate. Short sighted network marketing business opportunity companies that try to “buy” loyalty from existing leaders and cut them a huge check to come on board is NOT duplicatable so you should NOT take the success of someone else making a ton of money in a short period of time seriously. Anyone that tells you that Network Marketing is some sort of a get rich quick scheme is probably going broke and if they only broke that cycle and started plugging away at something that would produce a residual income, in 3-12 months they could have a decent way to make money. By its nature, network marketing is a long term business.

Lie Number 2 – It’s Easy.

Many time people are told network marketing is easy and
they translate that to mean they can put very little time and effort into it and not take it seriously. What’s easy is coming home and doing the same thing you have always done. Watching TV, complaining, hanging around the same people you always have, etc. What is EASY is staying in a job you hate and keeping your life comfortable, even if it is a comfortable misery. Looking inside of yourself to see where you can become better, ditching the bowling event to attend a presentation and working something your closest friends tell you is a scam, is not easy.

Lie Number 3 – The product doesn’t matter

In any network marking business there are always 2 products and you better believe that they both matter.
You are the number one product. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will. The product your company carries is the second product and eventually, it does matter. If your product is crap, it will eventually stop selling and people will loose interest. I recently was approached by guy who asked me a few questions and
then went on to tell me how we could all be rich if we all just bought one bag of grain each month with his company. It was $70 and it was just an investment and I could throw the grain away if I wanted to. Some people actually fall for that line of crap…

Lie Number 4 – The compensation plan doesn’t matter.

Let me ask you something. If you were searching for a job, would the one that paid you more interest you more or less or does that even matter? You bet it matters!
I have a story about this. A friend of mine was involved with a network marketing business opportunity which was a juice binary company. He was placed on an inside leg and had to build both legs. He I had 9, yes, 9, 6 figure earners in my team that he brought in. Unfortunately, they were all on one leg! If you know a binary, you just cringed. It means that he did not make squat off those 6 figure earners. Let me ask you this, if you bring someone into a company, and they help make that company profitable…should you get paid? Of course you should but old school binary companies only pay you off your weaker leg. This makes the company, not the rep, very profitable. I am shocked to find old school binary companies still exist. A binary can be very lucrative but the old school way of ONLY paying you off your weaker leg is pretty tough to swallow in today’s day and age.

Lie Number 5 – Follow our mlm system so you don’t ever have to talk to friends or family.

This is probably the most popular lie today. So many people that were poorly trained and burnt out their warm markets are being promised that some magical, mystical mlm system will help them so they don’t have to have an ounce of courage. Do you know when you should NOT approach people you know? When you don’t believe in what you are doing or you are so poorly trained that you actually care if they sign up or not. If you don’t believe in what you are doing, why are you doing it? A few months ago in Vegas Mike Dillard was asked about approaching warm markets, he said, “Once you no longer care if they sign up, you should talk to them”, I could not agree more. If you are terrible at talking to people, you don’t need an mlm system, you need to get better and get trained properly. This is a main focus of mine to the people I coach.

Lie Number 6 – You can build multiple companies at the same time.

Sorry, but this is a lie. The percentage of people that have the discipline to successfully build one company is very low but when you add another one in the mix, you reduce that percentage big time. A lot of people fall prey to big marketers with a big list that DO have the ability to “make some money” from multiple companies but that is NOT duplicatible. All that accomplishes is confusing those following the big marketer and ensures they fail in ALL companies they are involved with. This makes sense as you realize that networking is NOT about your efforts but the efforts of those you bring on board. When others see you do multiple, they will try to do multiple and the whole thing collapses.

Number 7 – You have to spend a lot of money in advertising to make money

Some leaders see a rep coming in as a big dollar sign. They sell anything they possibly can to this new rep and one of the most universally accepted big dollar items, is advertising. I have seen reps come into a company for less than $500 and spend $3,000-$4,000 right away on advertising. Now, for a typical brick and mortar company or business, this is not the far from being a smart decision, but, for a network marketing business opportunity, this is terrible. Why? Because it is NOT duplicatible. Network marketing has the ability to be built WITHOUT spending tons of money on advertising and I believe it is best to do it that way as then you can help anyone achieve success even those without huge budgets. When you become profitable in your business, if you want to play with some of the profits, GO FOR IT, but, my suggestion is until you reach that point, keep that budget tight and avoid attempting to spend your way to success!

The blogging conception began in the late 90s. At that time it was a way for individuals to comment and voice their view on issues or other websites. What started out as brief one or two sentence commentary has evolved into pages of an individuals personal take on just about everything and anything under the sun. As blogging continues to become more popular it has become an advertising channel that is sure to continue and grow.


Here are 5 reasons why you

should consider the

practice of blogging as an

Internet marketing tool.

1. Blogging builds credibility.

As you progress more and more into writing your experiences on a specific product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs. As such, you become an expert on it, as a result, additional readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs. As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.

2. Blogging is authentic.

In this day and age where advertisers inundate our lives, we question the credibility of a promoters claims. However, in blogs, real folks share their real-life experiences, untouched by paid advertising. Browsing blogs regarding first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. You undeniably want to obtain a tried and tested product.

3. Blogging is simple.

The simplest way to get your piece on the net is through blogging. No skills are necessary an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse.  Its like having a virtual piece of paper and you simply write your ideas, experiences, latest products, and trust that the truth behind your articles comes out and persuade your reader to also try your product. If you possess a PC and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can blog and advertise.

4. Blogging is free.

Blogging has developed into a proven mainstream in favor of free online advertising since a well-liked blog can receive a high volume of visitors on a ongoing basis. Any opportunity for free webspace is undeniably a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up. Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate additional profits for your seriously growing business.

5. Blogging

builds your market.

What can start as few visits from a small number of people can become viral with many people referring others to your blog. This assuming that the content that you publish adds value and is appealing to people who visit your blog. There are many ways to receive traffic to your blog, the following are several ways to promote your blog.

By joining a blog network.

A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc.  Consumers realize credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers regarding a single subject. Clearly, more bloggers are better than one.

By understanding your readers.

Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their needs and preferences. Ask consumers to furnish you feedback on a post, an ad link, or a trial that you shared. In this way, it is like interviewing your readers without the commitment and intrusion of a face-to-face interview.

By using your e-mail.

Email is a quick and efficient way to reach you contacts.
Expose people to your blog site by using a brief e-mail message as teaser to your blog. If your e-mail is on an entirely separate subject, use your e-mail signature to present a link to the site.

By using a RSS feed.

RSS is the fastest growing technology on the Internet today. As such, having RSS feeds to your blog is definitely an added channel of generating awareness in support of your readership base.  Having a variety of feeds can add appeal to your blog site.

By using subscription.

An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blogsite.  Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address. Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are a spammer.

By effectively using blogging as internet marketing tool you can boost profits for your business.
