Keep Up With Changing Network Marketing Techniques

Many businesses today advocate "continuous improvement" as part of their quality programs.  This applies to traditional business and MLM.

The focus is apparent that to be able to remain competitive in this current global economy the goal has to be to improve every aspect of the business.  If this fact is overlooked the competition will not be long surpassing them.

Life is a constant and continuous learning and growing experience. Growing and developing your “self” will eventually prepare you for when you do prevail and find success.

Your short- and medium term goals should be realistic and achievable, but your long-term goals should always far outweigh your present capabilities. As the Roman poet Virgil said, "Fortune sides with him who dares."

You have heard that to be successful in network marketing you should brand yourself. Improve you in every aspect.  Learn skills that will lead you to success.  If you are not constantly changing to remain attractive to your onlookers, the competition will move in where you have not kept up with the constant need for change.

MLM skills in marketing have changed substantially over the last several years.  It no longer works to use methods from the ‘70’s.  Making a list of your family and friends does not work.  This method has created a huge membership in the “NFLC”…”No Friends Left Club”.

Spamming your contacts in your bought list does not work. For starters these people did not opt in to receive this information.  And you are more than likely spamming individuals who know nothing of MLM and network marketing and neither do they care to learn. Most on your purchased leads list will be those who were looking for something for nothing such as signing up for a Free computer.


I invite your help to make the network marketing/MLM industry a more respected, truthful and trustworthy profession.

The road to an awesome improved professional industry is through increased knowledge and skills.

It continues to be our best wishes for your success in this industry which can be achieved through education and sharing expert knowledge of the skills that do work today.

To Your Success

Big Al Logic–Tough Prospects Who Believe They Shouldn’t or Can’t Do Network Marketing

We get so very frustrated as network marketers by times, more times than we even MLM Suicidecare to admit.  But there is one man, Tom Big Al Schreiter who has been sharing world wide his Big Al Logic.  Please read below to hear from the Tall Dark Handsome Texan himself how he works with tough prospects who believe they shouldn’t or can’t do network marketing.

Tom Shares:

My kamikaze wife teaches me a cool prospecting lesson while driving at 105 mph.

My wife is speeding along at 105 mph. I’m sitting quietly in the passenger seat, mostly because my fear is making it impossible for me to speak.

Finally I blurt out,
“Dear, you shouldn’t be going 105 mph!”  My wife calmly turns to me and says:
“But dear, you are also going 105 mph.”

How could I argue with that logic? I guess I just wasn’t seeing things from her point of view.
It’s the same principle when we talk with tough prospects. They believe that they can’t or shouldn’t do network marketing.

We can instantly change their point of view by saying:
“Most people do network marketing every day, but they just don’t get paid for it.”  Then we can explain how everyone recommends and promotes things every day, and we just choose to get paid for it instead of doing it for free.

Now the prospects are thinking:
“Hmmm, there are two types of people in the world. Those that collect a network marketing check every month, and those that don’t. Which group do I want to be in?”

We have effectively changed the prospects’ point of view. Now the prospects believe that they are already networking, so we can skip that entire part of our presentation.

Frustrated Network Marketer–Get Out Of the Starting Blocks

You’re never more grateful for being alive than after you’ve almost died,” ~ Aron Ralston.  Aron was a renowned mountain climber who had made a name for himself by becoming the 1st man to climb Colorado’s top 40 peaks in the dead of winter. Unfortunately, on a  climb in Utah’s Blue John Canyon, he suffered a freak accident.  A bolder fell and pinned his right arm to a crevasse wall. Some tough decisions followed in the next 5 days.  You know what, as network marketers we are probably not going to be faced with tough choices like this…but we will have to decide if we will carry on even when faced with frustration, struggles and fear.  Sometimes as a frustrated network marketer we never even get out of the starting blocks.  We fear to commit to our dream.  We fear success and we fear that we will fail in our attempts.

Aron_ralstonAfter 5 days of desperate attempts to free himself of that tremendous 800 pound boulder and the very real thoughts of facing death alone … while lost at the bottom of that pit… he did the unimaginable and the only thing possible to save his life… he amputated his own arm to free himself… Climbed out of the canyon… and then made it back the 20 miles to civilization.


Can you imagine having to make the decision to amputate your own arm in order to save your life? Could I do it, could I make that choice?  Could you? 

Making a choice to commit to your online business is no ways near as tough.  It is a choice; a decision…the question is do you really want to change your life through the opportunity that God or fate; however you choose to see your opportunity, has provided you?

If you are wondering what all the fuss is about concerning Network Marketing and you have no idea what it is or how you can get started,…we recommend you read Are You Walking Past a Fortune which you can download from our site above. This is an opportunity for you to get the facts and have your questions answered so you can determine if Network Marketing/MLM is for you.

Successful Network Marketing-Model the Sales Pros

How is it that sales people are so successful? Well a  good salesman goes straight to the heart…allow me to share from my good friend Jacque Payne.  She has figured out how the Pros are successful network marketing…model the sales pros.

It is all about visualization.  Read below her thoughts…

A good salesman he can have you picturing your dream life in moments, and then actually LIVING that dream life, because he’s going to leverage YOUR mental image to sell you HIS product or service. The better he can link what he’s selling to your dream, the sooner you’ll make that buying decision.

That’s how sales works. The best salesperson gets you to visualize exactly what you want, in all its detail. Knowing that, why not use this technique on yourself?

We talk about visualization a lot. But do you actually ever DO it? And if so, are you doing it effectively?

Why not model the successful sales pro? YOU call the shots. Bond with your dream using all your senses – sight, sound, smell, touch, taste. Make it 100% vivid, just like you are really there now. Write down the details of the dream you are picturing, so you can use those details over and over.

Do it every day. The sooner you bond with your dream every day, the sooner you will pay the price to achieve it.

That is how life works.

To Your Success,
Jacque Payne

PS:  Are You Walking Past a Fortune…7 Day Weekends It’s Easier Than You Think


Are You Walking Past a Fortune-Create an Income

Lets look at 4 ways to create an income. There will be at least one method that some of you may not be familiar with.  Which leads to a question posed by  Tom Big Al Schreiter in his book “Are YOU Walking Past a Fortune?”.  He wrote  about this income generator, the thing is many just do not understand that this income generator requires some training or an education if you will. Before we move on to look at generating  income, let us look at some traditional methods of generating an income.

Most of us will go to school and a few of those graduates will further their education by imagegoing on to university or college. For their reward, whether we attend college or not, as an employee we are rewarded with approximately 45 years of hard labour.  This is  the employee mindset…some people are very content to be the employee, while others find no contentment at all and look for other ways to create income.

This is an age old concept. You work for another business owner to get paid for your contribution to the company. In many instances in this business model you do not get paid what you are worth, but what the employer feels you are worth.  You will have no chance to benefit from the profits…(unless of course the employer  offers an employee incentive program.  (A method to entice you to do more; bribery) You never really have job security because someone else controls this. You can be laid off at any time at the employers whim.

For those who feel that being an employee is just not for them they follow bigger dreams and look for a way to become the boss, the employer. You will create a bigger pay check as the boss (normally), but you are still sentenced to a lifetime of hard labour.  You will imageprobably put in more hours than if you were an employee, but it is YOURS!  After you divvy up the profits you get to take home what is left.

But what happens to your business once you decide to retire? Well it may be passed on to the next generation or it just might cease to operate.  Poor management may be it’s demise as well causing all or your hard work to go up in smoke.

Now there are still others who feel that becoming a franchise owner would be a little less riskier than starting a business from the ground up and tackle a huge debt in investing in a particular brand name.  They follow a blue print set forth by the franchise and for this dream the franchise owner must pay an established percentage of the profits to the franchise owner.  Those who have ventured into owning a franchise find that there is very little return on such a large investment.

We have looked at three ways to generate income.  From traditional to risky and not so risky.  Network marketing or multi level marketing has been around for many years.  Amway, Avon, Mary Kay, Shaklee, Watkins and other companies have been around for many years and are a household name.  But many customers are not be aware that these direct sales business men and women knocking on their doors were actually involved in network marketing.  Surprise!!

Although it has been around for years it has gained popularity with many people.  Many are attempting some way to generate an extra income from home.

So what is network marketing?

It is an income generating method or business model which allows you to be your own boss as in example 2, but with very little investment as described in example 3. (Word of caution…if you are investing more than $1500.00 to initially get started in an MLM company, RUN!  Just my opinion. It probably is not a legitimate business opportunity. You sure do not want to be joining a venture where you may be required to re-mortgage the house.)

The business (your business) grows as you tell others about the products you have and by others joining you as business partners.  Do not expect that it will grow over night, this is a real business and just like any business venture you would start it will take time and patience to see any results for your labour.  Most who are employees do not go from making $2000.00 a month to $10,000.00 a month in the space of a week.

Your income is distributed by your company to all the distributors which is determined in the companies compensation plan.  Note: not all compensation plans are equal.  Be sure you understand the very detailed commission plan, as it usually is not as easy as explained in promotional hyped up videos. (It is funny that some people we talk to think that they will only need to find 3 or 4 people and then they will be earning thousands of dollars…NOT TRUE! You have to do the math and you have to know the formula to be able to determine how many you really have to have in your business to generate the income that your sponsor tells you you can earn)  The formula is in the 10 K question.

You and your business partners are paid for your sales  down a determined amount of  levels and a set width again determined by the commission pay plan. In a 5 Pillar company you are permitted to build infinite levels deep and infinite levels wide, removing any financial cap which may be in other companies. You earn from your own efforts and the efforts of others. As your team grows, your business grows and your income grows right along with it. In many cases you will be able to conduct business worldwide via the use of the internet.

There have been many very successful business owners of this business model such as Jim Rohn, Tom Big Al Schreiter, David Bertrand, Randy Gage and the list goes on.   Even actors and other celebrities have gotten involved with network marketing or at least endorsed a product or two.

Are YOU Walking Past a Fortune?

As mentioned  caution is required in any venture.  If you are new to this business model and you lack education and training in this you very likely could fall victim to the dark side of MLM, even the veterans of network marketing struggle and fail and are taken advantage of by the… vultures, the gurus and the con artists. You could find yourself ripped off and broke.  There are some very unscrupulous individuals who prey on the unsuspecting and uneducated in this industry.

As a good friend of mine, Mike Sherratt says, “As in all business there are enough fly by night operators operating through your best friend or relative who are themselves an unknowing victim and may suck you in to the whirlpool of losses and failures.”

If you’d like to learn how you can avoid the cutthroats or would like to remove the mind boggle and meadow muffins from MLM, contact us and we would be happy to share what we know.
