Exclusive MLM Leads: Real or Myth?

Exclusive MLM Leads: Real or Myth?

On our site Live Chat we are sometimes asked if we have exclusive mlm leads.


People love the thought of having exclusive mlm leads, it’s something to do with a human desire for ownership and control.  Also, it makes one think there is a fear of competition involved as well.

As a race, we all like to own things; a nice house, a clean safe car, a big screen TV and a margarita blender.  But leads don’t really fall into this type of "thing"

MLM Leads are people, not a thing or a possession.  There is no ownership entitlement at all.  When someone makes a purchase with a mlm leads company they are actually renting access to a list of people.  Ownership never changes hands.

Let’s get into what leads are about.  They are regular people just like you, not so much like me because I’m pretty far from regular.

Quite often, how they became a lead is they went to a search engine and looked for something like best home business, "top 10 ways to make money at home"

When they scrolled through the results they probably saw a couple of different sites which looked interesting.  They liked the big header image on the page and they like what was being promised.  They could see themselves on that big power boat with the sexy bikini girl, or they could see that brand new gigantic house in the best neighbourhood.

They quickly completed the form asking for more information.  That’s the exact moment they became an MLM Lead.

More than likely they wanted to feel sure so they repeated the same process on another site and maybe even a third.

Now they were on the leads lists of a few mlm leads companies.


So much for being exclusive

MLM lead companies who claim to have exclusive mlm leads are not (in most cases) lying to you.  They simply mean the lead is being sold to you exclusively from them.  It’s not preventing other companies who the lead signed up with form selling them also.


Fear of Competition


Now on the point I made earlier about fear of competition.  I’m really sorry to tell you this but if you are experiencing a fear of competition from other mlm distributors then it’s a matter of confidence and experience.

Let’s say that somehow you were the only person ever to speak to the lead about a mlm business opportunity.  Do you truly believe they will get in with you just because you’re the only one they spoke to?

Fear Not The Competition

Getting back to reality; confidence is a big key to recruiting.  It’s not that much to do with products and comp plans.  Sure, that will get some people to join but not most.  Most people are looking at you and deciding if they like you, if they trust you and most importantly are you a leader who will show them the way.

Those are the most important factors whether or not someone gets into business with you.  Not the fact that you may or may not have been the only person who spoke to them

A better strategy than worrying if leads are exclusive or shared is to develop your people skills and choose quality leads.  Get some experience talking to a few hundred leads, fall over, get back up again and get better everyday.

how many times are mlm leads sold - don reid

How Many Times Are MLM Leads Sold

How Many Times Are MLM Leads Sold: In this post we delve into that question which we hear from site visitors quite often.


It’s a really great question and one which many of our competitors really hate to answer. They prefer to keep quiet about it and hope that no one asks them.


Even when they are asked they will often squirm and give confusing and misleading answers designed to make it sound like the leads are not sold to anyone else.


Before getting to the answers, there needs to be a little explanation of how mlm leads are generated.


The most common method is search engine marketing. This means the mlm leads generator places an ad on Google or other search engines. The ad will show up when anyone searches such things as “how to make money at home”, “best home business”, “work at home plans”

a sample of a simple mlm leads capture page

A sample of a simple mlm leads capture page

If the searcher clicks on the ad they will be taken to a lead capture page. The page will usually have a glossy image of a family enjoying all the money they have made from their home business. You know the kind of thing, big fancy pants house, foreign car, stacks of cash, cruise ships etc etc.


The page will have a form on it where the searcher can request more information about this exciting home business opportunity.


The form will ask for their contact information and often a bunch of other relevant questions such as how much extra money do they want per month, how many hours per week can they work in a home business, what their motivation level is. That and more.

 

When the searcher completes the form it’s sent to the lead generation company and this person is now a mlm lead.


Ok a simple enough process but actually quite expensive. None of it’s cheap. The design and construction of the lead capture page would have cost thousands of dollars. Because they didn’t build just one, they built quite a few and tested which one worked the best.


The database which collects the data from the forms cost money. The hosting of the site cost money.


Most of all the cost of advertising cost a huge amount. It probably costs around $10 to generate one lead!


Like all companies the lead generation company needs to make a profit to cover all the expenses and salaries of the staff involved in the actual lead generation. Don’t forget there are other expenses as well, administration staff, rent on the office, office furniture, equipment, utilities etc. The list is long.


In case you would like to give generating your own mlm leads a try, I wrote "The 6 Best Ways To Generate MLM Leads


All in all each lead can cost $20 each to generate.


In the MLM leads industry, no one is going to be willing to pay anywhere near that much for a lead.


To make the leads available at a price which the market will bear ALL mlm leads companies sell leads more than one time. Otherwise the prices would be much more expensive, it’s just a simple fact.


Those companies who are telling you they only sell leads one time are either:


a. Lying or
b. Selling rubbish leads that are worth nothing


Apache Leads offers top quality phone interviewed mlm leads and to make them available at a price that is attractive and beneficial to the market we sell all fresh leads up to 3 times. That depends on demand. Sometimes we have more leads than is needed and so those leads are sold less than 3 times. But, as a general rule, we sell them 3 times.


One thing to remember with Apache Leads is that our software prevents the fresh leads being shared with people working the same business. That’s why we ask you which business you are working when you set up your free Leads Manager Account.


Leads are not silly, they are going to want to look at a few businesses before deciding so, it’s really not a negative thing to share the leads.


Aged leads are, of course, leads which have been sold before and are then sold again at a vastly reduced price to reflect that they have been sold before and are also older now.


Sadly some mlm leads companies are not very ethical and will sell the leads many times in order to maximize their profits. This hurts their customers and the industry as a whole. We stand for openness, transparency and honesty. We do not support lying to our clients and do not condone these bad practices in anyway.

apache leads guarantee

We guarantee all our leads and want to make working with Apache Leads as pleasant, profitable and risk free as possible for you.


Toward this objective, we are not afraid to answer any question you might have.

mlm leads affiliate program

MLM Leads Affiliate Program

Yes, We Do Have an MLM Leads Affiliate Program

In this post, we’re going to explain about our MLM Leads Affiliate Program, why we chose the one we did and why we believe it’s the best for your MLM business growth

Do you have an mlm leads affiliate program?

This is a question we get a couple of times a week.  Usually from experienced Networkers.  Yes, we do have an affiliate program. It’s listed under the Services menu and directly in the page footer.

Does your affiliate program have software to run it?

No, it doesn’t, sorry about that.  Here’s why.

Apache Leads is a diverse site which offers a range of different products and services.  These products and services require different handling, different systems to manage those products from sales to delivery.

Most of our MLM leads are handled within The Leads Manager.  That system provides the sales, importing, delivery and client management of leads all within a very complex application.  It was purpose designed and built and is exclusive to Apache Leads.

When we were designing it, an affiliate program, did not cross our minds and so it’s not included and not able to be without a total rebuild.

The other and probably the more important reason we do not have a regular affiliate program is we have never supported the idea of an upline profiting from their own downline who are investing in leads to build a business.  A business which the upline will benefit from in due course.

Affiliate Programs are Not Free

Leads companies who have an affiliate program which pays out commissions are not doing it out of the goodness of their hearts.  They are doing it to increase sales and to cover the cost they have to either increase the price of the leads or decrease the quality of the leads (or both). some mlm leads affiliate programs

Do you want an upline who directs you to a company that pays them a commission for sending you to them or an upline who cares about you and does everything possible to support your growth?  Your upline and your job if you are an upline is to be diligent, honest and focused on helping, training and guiding your downline.   Making money from them with affiliate programs takes the focus off your downline and puts it on your wallet.  That’s a short term outlook and one which will be duplicated and strangle the growth of everyone’s business.  It’s a slippery slope

Because we believe in doing all we can to help you build your business we developed an affiliate program which helps everyone.  If you’re a success in MLM, then if we were of some help in your success, we could reasonably hope you would encourage your downline to also avail themselves of our services, right?  Damn straight, so of course we want you to be a success!

It’s like a “refer a friend” program. 

great mlm leads affiliate program

Our affiliate program is not about money.  It’s about leads.  Yes it’s very cool and very easy to use.

So, for example, say you refer your friend John.  He invests in 10o Fresh Phone Interviewed Leads.  We will not pay you a commission, however, we will give you 25 Phone Interviewed Leads for free

We feel that’s a nice and reasonable reward for you.

Why How and Where to Buy the Best MLM Leads

Why, How and Where to Buy the Best MLM Leads

Why How and Where to Buy the Best MLM Leads

Some people make a huge mistake and think that all mlm leads are created equally and that the only reason to buy is price. This is the biggest mistake they ever make in what will be a short career in network marketing.

Before getting into the real reasons you should choose wisely when buying mlm leads, please allow me to introduce myself to you.

My name is Don Reid and I first was introduced to network marketing in February, 1992. It was all very new to me and I didn’t have any of the skills which successful Network Marketers need. But, over time I acquired them by investing in training and with a lot of help from my sponsor.  I listened to everything he said and went to every event, every meeting and devoured all the training.

I went on to build a moderately successful mlm business.

In August 1995, I was distracted by a new craze called the internet. My partners and I developed and operated membership sites from August 1995 to December 2000. During that time we generated gross revenue of a tad over $18,000,000.

In 2002 I decided to give MLM another shot and use the new tools the internet was providing. I joined a company based in California. It was the usual lotions and potions and a fairly standard compensation plan. There really was nothing “new”, “revolutionary” or even interesting about the products.  In fact, when my monthly product shipment used to arrive, I used to throw it in the dumpster. The taste of it was really quite revolting. Even with vodka it was pretty gross.

don with diamond awards

Getting My Diamond Level Awards in Florida 2002

From the day I started that revolting tasting MLM, to the day I hit the Diamond Level was only 3 months!

That’s a record in that company and probably in most others. My income at that time from that business was averaging $71,000 per month.

When I looked downline to help my group grow it became very obvious there was a problem. My people had no leads.

My rapid rise to the Diamond level was made possible by my email list of over 2 million names. Every day I was promoting the business to the list and getting dozens of people signing up.

How great was that!

A big problem just popped up to kill that.

Spam.

Yep Governments all over the world were sick to death of spam and so they enacted laws which prevented sending spam email. My list was actually legitimate, everyone had signed up of their own free will. Problem was in those early days we had no proof of their signup so the email blasting had to stop.

That’s when I decided to provide leads to my group.

Apache Leads was born

It had been designed just for my own downline but in no time, word spread about the great quality leads we were providing and people form all over the world began buying leads from us.

To cut a long story short, since 2003 Apache Leads has been at the forefront of providing awesome mlm leads. These days we just offer mlm leads from two countries and two types of leads. We’ve distilled a big range down to just the two best leads for network marketers.

What we have focused on is providing these very valuable tools and services to our clientele

1. Very attentive and responsive customer service which includes, toll free numbers, email contact and live chat.

2. An advanced Leads Management System which is provided at no cost to our clients. This very easy to use system is a very powerful tool for managing all your leads, reporting bad leads, pausing and resuming delivery, setting delivery times to the the minute in your own time zone and downloading.

3. Free mlm training. As you now know, I’ve built two mlm businesses and have learnt a lot since 1992. I’ve shared my experiences, script, tips and shortcuts in a number of books which are available on the site.

4. MLM Leads which are phone interviewed quality, the very best there is. For example, the Australian Phone Interviewed Leads are the only phone interviewed Australian leads in the world.

Valuing MLM Leads

The value of the leads you invest in is directly related to the result they can bring to you.

Before we go any further, a word of warning. Many people new to MLM make the biggest mistake of all, they choose to believe they have all the skills needed to call leads and sponsor them.

They don’t

It’s a silly as thinking, “I know how to use a phone so I know how to make calls”, they don’t. The people who make this mistake are excited with their new busienss and think as soon as they mention it to some stranger, that stranger is going to be as excited as them and want to get int he business.

They forget they were approached by a professional and given a professional presentation, that’s what got them excited.

Anyone calling mlm leads without training, practice and a script is doomed to failure and will quit the business in a very short time.

Everyone needs to be teachable.

OK, enough said

Lets look at valuing how much a lead is worth to you.

When you sponsor / recruit someone into your business they will be worth at least $1,000 per year to you. Of course, that’s assuming they are active. They are likely to be worth a ton more, maybe even $50,000 a year.

Lets say you invest $100 in leads, you call them with a good script, build a relationship and sponsor one person from those leads and the calls. Just one, not 10, not 20, just 1.

You just invested $100 to make a minimum of $1,000!!

Now if you invest time and effort to teach this new person to duplicate your methods, they are very likely to follow your example and begin buying good quality leads, making calls and recruiting people of their own.

Now how much are they worth to you?

Warren Buffett would be doing that all day every day if he knew about it. You DO know about it.

 

 

price and value

price is what you pay, value is what you get

 

Hopefully now you understand, investing in quality mlm leads will bring awesome value and massive returns for you.  Returns which keep paying off to you, year after year

 

The very best, fully guaranteed MLM leads are the Phone Interviewed Grade. Both the U.S. and AU versions are incredibly good value.  Heed my words about getting training, practice and a proven script BEFORE selecting and calling these mlm leads to enjoy the biggest return.

Why, How and Where to Buy the Best MLM Leads

where to get more mlm leads

Where To Get More MLM Leads

 

Where To Get More MLM Leads?

Everyone in Network Marketing is always wondering; where to get more mlm leads.  Well wonder no more!  In this post I’m going to show you exactly where you can acquire more mlm leads.  It is a true saying that mlm leads are the life blood of your business.  I like to use the analogy of your business being a vehicle which can drive you closer to your dreams and the mlm leads are the fuel for your vehicle.  Now the thing is you can drive your car slow or you can drive it fast.  Of course, fast is better if it’s getting you to your dreams right?

Generate Your Own MLM Leads

Generating your own leads is definitely a thing.  Like anything it needs some skill to generate your own mlm leads.  But it’s truly doable and if you get good at it, you will generate exclusive mlm leads which only you have access to.  I wrote a detailed post covering The 6 Best Ways To Generate MLM Leads have a read of it and you will be on your way to feeding your vehicle with phone interviewed gas!

How To Get More MLM Leads

One of the things I used to do to generate my own mlm leads before the internet was to go to trade shows. It still works now, just most people don’t bother to do it.  It’s really easy and produces excellent mlm leads. Trade shows are packed with exhibitors who mostly hate their boring jobs.  They are there to promote and sell their company’s products and service so of course they are super easy to approach.  During the conversation, it’s very likely they will ask you something along the lines of what industry or job you are doing.  BINGO! As soon as they ask that you give them your practiced and polished Elevator Pitch. If they are interested in learning more (which they should be if you have a good elevator pitch) then grab their card and tell them you’ll give them a call to make a time to get together.  Too easy right?

Where To Buy MLM Leads

OK I understand that some people are very reluctant to buy mlm leads.  That’s because either they or someone they know has been burned by bad mlm leads companies in the past.  Yes, it’s a damn pity that there are some scammy lead sellers in the industry.  On the other hand there are some truly excellent mlm leads companies and it’s super easy to tell the difference.  I recently wrote a post called where to buy the best mlm leads its definitely worth taking a look and then being able to buy the best mlm leads for your business vehicle without any risk.

As a word of warning there are a ton of different types of mlm leads and a lot of dirty little secrets the industry would prefer you never find out, so….

The Truth About Buying MLM Leads

I started in the mlm leads business way back in 2003.  I’ve done well in this industry because I’ve always made sure Apache Leads was transparent and fair dealing.  Many mlm leads sellers have come and gone Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Leads during that time, mostly because they don’t do the right thing by their clients, they are more interested in a short cut to riches.

My allegiance is to you, my client, because without you, I have no business.  My success is tied to your success.

That’s why I wrote a training book which exposes the bad mlm leads and the bad leads companies and their dirty little secrets. It’s called Everything You Ever Needed To Wanted To Know About Leads  or you can get it and other mlm books for free on our MLM Training page.

MLM Leads Are Not Magic Beans

I answer a lot of live chat and support emails on the site and the biggest misconception I hear from new people is this:  They think MLM Leads are going to jump into business with them as soon as they call them up.  Please allow me to dis-spell that myth.  I made a video here called MLM Leads are NOT Magic Beans  MLM Leads really are a fantastic tool for your business and when you invest in good leads and use them professionally you will reach your goals and dreams faster.  Invest in yourself and master the skills required to make the most of the mlm leads you acquire.  No matter if you generate your own mlm leads or buy the best mlm leads, you still need to treat them like people and be a leader and not a needy baby.

Where To Get More MLM Leads

where to buy the best mlm leads

Where To Buy The Best MLM Leads

Where To Buy The Best MLM Leads:  In this post I'm going to show you where to buy the best mlm leads.  This is important stuff if you want to avoid wasting your time and wasting your money on bad mlm leads.

Do you know what bad mlm leads are?

Let's cover that first so you are up to speed on them.  Bad mlm leads are leads sold by scammy leads companies.  Sadly yes, there are still a few of them taking advantage of people.  But with the information in this post, you should be more knowledgeable and able to avoid buying mlm leads which are less than phone interviewed shall we say.

The bad guys are always going to be offering you deals which sound way too good to be true.  That's because they are.

Bad MLM Leads have these telltale signs:

They are old but sold as fresh

They have been sold a gazillion times and when you call them they are going to give you an earful of abuse.

They most likely never asked for information about a home business but were just sold to you as being genuine home business seekers

So now you know the telltale signs of bad mlm leads, lets move onto bad mlm leads sellers.

There website looks like it hasn't been upgraded since 2005.  It has all those pathetic stock photos of people in suits in an office conference room

The site is not even full width, it's narrow with a very clunk old fashioned design

The site is http not the secure https Look up at our url you can see its https and has the green padlock and says SECURE

They have a real lack of proper contact information, no real "about us" nothing seems legit about the site

They have no guarantees and no proper terms and conditions, no privacy policy

They have no free training to help you and support you

They have no free leads management system to help you contact and follow up your leads

They have no live chat program to make it easy for you to ask questions and get real answers, right now

They have no genuine testimonials from real clients

Live Chat to support you

There are a few of us who have been supplying quality, guaranteed leads for a long time.  I founded Apache Leads in 2003. So a long time in the business is a very good sign of where to buy the best mlm leads

MLM Leads are meant to be good and so I'm not blowing our horn because of that.  That should come with the territory.

Leads are supposed to bring you a profit via giving you real people who are genuinely interested in a home business.  Leads are quite expensive to generate, so that's why good ones cost more than the cheap ones offered by scammy sites.


Remember this though, leads are not just going to jump at the chance as soon as you call them.  A lot of network marketing newbies make that mistake and then complain the leads are no good.  NO!  It's not that the leads are no good, it's the newbie who was no good at calling and being a real leader.  Imagine someone you have never met calls you up and begins asking you personal questions about your desires, your income, you ability to work a business etc etc.  How eager are you going to be to respond nicely and give all the answers.

Remember, it's the person calling the leads job to be professional, be courteous and listen.  Listen to what they say, not just spit out the next line in your script.  Learn to be patient and genuinely try to understand and help them.

Anyway, that's where to buy the best mlm leads in a nutshell.  Watch out for the scammers, deal with professional mlm lead companies and be a great caller.

I wrote a course called Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Leads.  Read that and you will know it all and never be scammed by bad mlm leads companies.

You will definitely make it to your goals and dreams and then...

We will see YOU on the beaches

7 Habits Of Self-Made Millionaires

7 Habits Of Self-Made Millionaires

Millionaires have common habits they follow, so do poor people.  Which of these habits do you have?

An interesting thing about most millionaires is that they made their money, they were not born into it.  The made it without a trust fund or inheritance. These are the 7 habits of Self-Made Millionaires.  Please do let me know how many you have in the comments below.

Milionaires also have habits that help them accumulate wealth: “Your habits are the reason why you’re rich or poor,” says Tom Corley, author of Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals. “In fact, it’s often two or three habits that separate the wealthy from those who are financially challenged.”Rich Habits

Corley has studied millionaires for 12 years, and says many of them share the same daily practices and beliefs. Here are seven habits of self-made millionaires:

1. THEY READ

As the old saying goes: “Readers are Leaders” and so it is with self-made millionaires.  They are readrrs.  Corley says this is the number one habit to adopt if you want to become wealthy. According to his study, 85% of millionaires read two or more books a month, and they choose books that help them grow, including topics like careers, biographies of successful people, self-help, health, current events, psychology, and leadership.

“The key to success in life is growing your knowledge base and skills,” says Corley. “Devote 30 minutes or more each day to learning by reading books. If you do, it will set you apart from the competition, as most people do not read.”

2. THEY PURSUE THINGS THAT INTEREST THEM

Most people end up in jobs that were pushed on them by parents, teachers, counselors, friends or circumstances.  Very rarely do regular people choose a path which is something they love or are passionate about. Think about it, do you love your job? Wealthy people pursue their interests. “They put their ladder on their own wall,” says Corley. “When you’re passionate about what you’re doing, you work harder. “ Plus because it’s something you like, it’s much easier than the usual crappy job that sucks the life out of you.

3. THEY FIND A MENTOR

Ninety-three percent of self-made millionaires in Corley’s study attribute their wealth to having mentors.

“Finding a success mentor in life is one of the least painful ways to become rich,” says Corley. “It can put you on the fast track to success.”

Corley says there are five types of success mentors:

Parents. Parenting is very important when it comes to being a millionaire. Parents are your first mentors. If they teach children good daily success habits, they’ll struggle less in life.

Teachers. Teachers can reinforce the mentoring children receive at home from their parents, or step in to provide the success mentoring absent at home.

Career Mentors. Finding a mentor at work you admire, trust, and respect can lead to success in life. Choose someone at least two levels above your rank.

Book Mentors. Mentors don’t have to be real relationships. Sometimes the best source are found in books, particularly books about successful people, says Corley.

Yourself. This is also called “the school of hard knocks,” you can mentor yourself by learning from your own mistakes. “This is the hard path to success, because those mistakes and failures carry significant costs in both time and money,” says Corley. “But this is also the most powerful type of mentoring you can get, because the lessons you learn are infused with intense emotion and never forgotten.”

4. THEY USE DREAMS TO SET GOALS

In my many years associated with being self-employed, I’ve noticed many regular people shy away from the word “dreams” they often tend to think it’s a bit too airy fairy and prefer to talk about hard goals than dreams.  That’s a big mistake. Before millionaires identify goals, they do something that Corley calls “dream setting”–they write down what their ideal life would look like, then use this script to create a bullet-point list of dreams. Goals are then built around each dream.

“Think of dreams as a ladder, and the rungs are your goals,” he says. “Ask yourself, ‘What would I need to do in order for each wish or dream to come true? Am I capable of performing those activities? And do I have the necessary skills and knowledge? Then take action.”

5. THEY WRITE TO-DO LISTS

Goals are only goals when they have two things: 100% achievability and physical activity, says Corley. Millionaires break down goals into physical action steps that make up their to-do list, and many have lists that follow a habit.

“Millionaires process success,” says Corley. “When you create processes, you don’t have to think, which takes energy and contributes to decision fatigue. Habits are valuable because they brain fuel that can be used doing something else.”

6. THEY CREATE MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME

A multi-millionaire once told me that to be secure and independent you needed 10 separate streams of income, each with at least $100K per year.  Self-made millionaires do not rely on only a single source of income, says Corley. Instead, they develop multiple streams, and most have at least three.

“Sixty-five percent had three or more streams of income that they created over time,” he says. “Diversifying your sources of income allows you to weather the economic downturns that always occur in life.”

Revenue streams include real estate rentals, stock market investments, annuities, private equity investments, part ownership in side businesses, ancillary products, or services, and royalties.

7. THEY AVOID TIME WASTERS

Millionaires believe money can be recouped, but the bigger risk is wasting time.

“When we invest our time in anything, it’s lost forever,” says Corley. “Yet, because we are all given what seems to be an abundance of time, it has very little value to us.”

Sixty-seven percent of the self-made millionaires in Corley’s study watch less than an hour of TV each day, and 63% spent less than an hour a day on the Internet in activities such as Facebook or watching YouTube videos.

“This freed up time for them to pursue their dreams, goals, read, learn, exercise, volunteer, and network,” he says.

Hope you enjoyed the 7 Habits Of Self-Made Millionaires.  How many of these habits are you already doing?  In your opinion, which is the most important?  Please do leave your response in the comments below and I will answer you personally.

Goodbye Message

MLM Leads: The Goodbye Message

MLM Leads: The Goodbye Message

Let’s talk about MLM Leads… How often have you had meetings with a person, they seemed interested and now all you get is their answering machine. You sent them an information pack, you took them to a meeting, you even had them on a conference call.  Everything was going great, you had high hopes for this prospect.

Now all of a sudden nothing

It really hurts, right?

It’s infuriating, inside its even humiliating.

You’ve put in all this time and effort and had high hopes for this person.  You maybe even told others that you think this person is going to be great, finally I’m going to sponsor someone who really makes it big and of course you really needed them because your mortgage payment is due, your car payment, etc.

Didn’t they say they needed the extra income too?  Sure they did.

An then all of a sudden….they are gone

So rather than dwelling on it and feeling pain and misery, how about a pre-emptive strike:

Be the first to say NO!

Yes!  This is going to make you feel sooooo much better.

To all your wishy washy prospects get really good at leaving them a great goodbye message, especially on their answering machine, you’ll be amazed at what happens, try it.

Remember your mission is to be finding people who it’s the right thing to be doing now, either joining your business or trying a product or service.  That means never having to recruit people you got to drag across the start line, let alone the finish line.

OK You ready?

You call them one last time and say the following words in a friendly, gentle, kind, warm manner:

Hi Joe, This is Don I’ve left you a couple of messages but this one is the last one.  I won’t be calling you anymore because I don’t want to be a pest.  But whenever you are ready to move out of your car and into an apartment you let me know.  It’s just that I’m on a deadline right now I have to find people who want what they want right now.  So when you’re ready call me OK, talk to you later, bye

Watch what happens.  The ones who really want to change their lives right now will call you right back.  Those for whom the time is not right for any reason will not, but isn’t that all you want?

To find the ones who it’s the right thing to be doing right now instead of spending your whole life finding them?

What do you think about this, do you have some goodbye messages you leave?  Share them with us in the comments.

Heres Why SMS Marketing Is Literally the Best Idea Ever

Here’s Why SMS Marketing Is Literally the Best Idea Ever

Here’s Why SMS Marketing Is Literally the Best Idea Ever

Texts are quick and cheap, and always read by everyone.

I’m always surprised that more network marketers are not using SMS/Text to contact large numbers of leads.  It’s legal, it’s ethical and it so much easier than dialing thousands of leads on the phone right?

Have a read of this really interesting article I just saw on Entrepreneur and then check out our amazing offer on how you can get in on this super method for recruiting in both Australia and the US.

This post is a response to Here’s Why SMS Marketing is Literally the Worst Idea Ever.

*Ding ding* One new text. Maybe it’s that cute boy you’ve been talking to in chem class. Maybe it’s your boss wanting to congratulate you on your performance. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s an irresistible text offer from your favorite retail chain. What’s the first thing you do? Open it, duh. If you swipe left and delete the message before even reading it — well kudos to you, you’re a borderline extraterrestrial. Personally, I can’t remember the last time I didn’t open a text message, and I’m sure you can agree.

Here’s a little bit more about SMS marketing and proof to back up my bold claim.

It’s not spam.

SMS messaging follows the rules of permission based marketing. It’s 100 percent opt-in based. Simply put, customers have to give their expressed consent before receiving SMS messages. This can be done in one of three ways. New subscribers can double opt-in¹ via web widget, add their cell number to a compliant sign-up form or text to join. The latter is the most common. After opting in, the new subscriber will receive an auto reply confirming their subscription. If the opt-in was accidental, they can simply reply STOP, and all messaging will cease.

(Don’s Edit: I want to just add here that leads who complete a survey form on the web requesting information about a home business are giving you permission to text them, email them or call them)

Everyone reads texts. 

Ok, well almost everyone — 90 percent of all text messages are read within three minutes of being received. This isn’t just a fluffy statistic. Recent research gathered by Dynmark.com also suggests that “almost one third of of those targeted with SMS advertising campaigns respond to the correspondence; with almost half of this group going on to make a purchase.” This research totally speaks for itself. And yes, U.S. citizens can register with the do not call registry, but this has nothing to do with the sending and receiving of SMS.

In the article cited at the beginning of this post, the author boldly claims that “a major chunk of the population is already registered with the DND.” First, there is no clear statistical research backing up this assumption. Second, in the U.S., the Do Not Call registry protects consumers from just that — unwanted calls. It’s designed to prevent telemarketers from harassing consumers. This has absolutely nothing to do with text messaging. Now, if for some reason you do find yourself receiving unwanted text messages, you can file a complaint. But, knowing the permission-based nature of this marketing method, you may never confront this issue.

Character limitation forces marketers to get right to the point.

There is a 160 character limit on text messages. With SMS, it’s simply about providing an irresistible offer. There’s no point in droning on and on with a 300-word marketing message. Subscribers are opting in to receive an exclusive offer, not to hear about how your day is going. Our current digital age rewards simple marketing messages with easy to understand calls to action. The 160 character limit on SMS messages is actually ideal.

Now, just like with any other marketing method, can SMS sometimes come off as obnoxious? Absolutely. But so can Facebook, direct mail, pay-per-click ads, and so on. It’s not necessarily the channel, but instead the quality of the message and offer.

OK ready to learn a bit more about this exciting approach to mass marketing / recruiting?

Imagine sending out say 1,000 texts each day with a cool message and an instruction to call back for more information.  That’s how to get hot interested leads to call you. We have everything you need to get started.

We have US Mobile Leads which are all 100% mobile numbers, plus all the usual contact information. We have Australian Mobile Leads which are mostly for SMS Texting Marketing.

To teach you how to choose a system to send your SMS message to thousands of leads and how to design a message that get results we put together the ultimate guide.  Initially we wrote the course for Ringless Voicemail Drops but we should have chosen a better name because it works exactly the same way for SMS Marketing

There you have it an explanation of “Here’s Why SMS Marketing Is Literally the Best Idea Ever”  it truly is a fantastically easy method to have any number of leads calling you wanting more information and you can set it all in motion by the press of a button!

Be A Leader Not A Needy Baby

Be a Leader NOT a Needy Baby

Be a Leader NOT a Needy Baby

OK guys, today is pretty hardcore.  Normally I’m fairly “kids gloves” on my training, today is an exception.

So many people come to network marketing with high hopes, big dreams and a bad needy employee mentality.  They need so much support, they need so much training, so need so much encouragement, they need so much recognition, they just plain need need need all the time.

This is how employees are they need to be told what to do, they need to be supervised, they need to be given schedules, they need to be told when to start work, they need to be told everything.

Jim Rohn once said “Life doesn’t respond to need.  Life responds to deserve”

Depending on others is not going to lead you to success.  Sure consult with your upline, mentors and trainers but don’t rely on them to build your business or to make decisions for you.  Don’t use it as an excuse to do nothing if your upline is not always available.  Don’t be gravitating to your couch and watching the idiot box.

Nobody makes money sitting on the couch drinking a beer.  Trust me, I’ve tried it many times.

Work harder on deserving something rather than needing something.  For example, if you have a guy in your downline who is always trying something, making calls, prospecting, getting to meetings, bringing new people to meetings and you have another guy who always needs pumping up, always needs motivation, always needs something… which one do you think deserves your time?

Being needy is employee thinking, it’s not at all entrepreneurial thinking.  Do you think Elon Musk is a needy baby or a real legendary leader?  Last week he had a rocket explode on the launch pad.  Do you think he went home and cried into his pillow and asked his mum for help?  No you know he didn’t, he just went on kicking ass!

Snap out of the silly employee mindset or go back to being one (of the sheep) Start relying on yourself, make your own decisions, make your own destiny and success.

Get fired up and kick some ass!

Set your own goals, seek more training, seek the knowledge on your own to become a success and seek out great mentors.

Pull up your big boy pants and be the strong confident leader you know you need to be. Strength, confidence and leadership are attractive.  Be that person who is deserving, say goodbye to the needy employee baby and start thinking like an entrepreneur.

A wise guy once said to me that we are the sum of the people we meet and the books we read.  What’s that make you?  Get into reading about entrepreneurs, read personal development books, read the training so many great sites, including ours, provide for free.

Get out there and make a difference to you, your family and the world
