The Right Global Mindset For MLM Direct Sales

Jun 05 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

In any MLM businesses, having the right global mindset is key to success in the network marketing MLM home business. As in any MLM direct sales, you will need a sales pitch. If you have been told otherwise by your upline, you have had the wool pulled over your eyes.

If you intend to achieve success and financial freedom in your MLM businesses, you must first have the right mindset. The global mindset of understanding that your MLM direct sales business will require you to not only move products and/or services but to also recruit people into your organization is gravely important. By not acknowledging this, you are actually putting yourself right on the path to failure.

Before you meet a prospect, there are a few steps to take note of. Firstly, you must always have the intention of creating value. The more value you create for your prospect, the more likely he or she will purchase from you or join you in your network marketing MLM home business. Never approach your prospect with the aim of selling your product and./or service or getting him or her to join you. This will surely chase your prospects far away from you as they can sense that you are not sincere and have an ulterior motive up your sleeve. Thus having the right intention is important in your network marketing MLM home business.

Building a rapport and creating a relationship with your prospects can help you tremendously in the future. You may not see immediate results but by getting to know your prospects better, you will be able to learn of their wants and needs. This will be very helpful when you are doing the opportunity presentation. It will then be easier for you to approach them with your MLM direct sales products and/or services and even introducing them to your network marketing MLM home business which is also a great residual income business opportunity.

When you have the right mindset, you will somehow start to attract the right people into your organization. You will be able to position yourself as a network marketing leader and expert in your field. This will build your credibility in your MLM businesses. Once you have achieved this stage, you become an attraction magnet and will have people looking up to you and wanting to join you in your network marketing MLM business opportunity. In essence, you become the hunted instead of the hunter. This is how successful network marketers become more and more successful in their MLM businesses.

Once you have presented your opportunity, the next step is to have a proper follow up. Without this, you might lose your ‘hot’ prospects who may turn cold. Or if you keep putting the pressure on them to buy from you or insist that they join you, they will run as far as they can. Thus follow up is also very important. It is as important as building the relationship and presenting the opportunity.

Without the right mindset on the various stages of follow up, you are doomed to failure. Do not limit yourself within the confines of a specific geographical region. Reach out globally. Look for various ways of marketing. Think out of the box if you want to be a successful leader.

If you want to join the ranks of the financial freedom society, you have to adopt the right global mindset for your MLM businesses. In your network marketing MLM home business, remember to build your relationship with your prospects before your sales pitch.. Following up is also important and must not be neglected. Be open and innovative in your marketing efforts. Look at marketing worldwide.

Direct Mail List – Are You Using Yours Effectively?

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

What are you doing to grow your business today? No, staying open an hour later on Fridays doesn’t count. What are you really doing to grow your business? There are several ways to do it, and some of them can be downright annoying to many people. The reason most marketing strategies are considered annoying is because of the people being targeted. A mass marketing strategy doesn’t work because you’re dealing with a group of people who aren’t interested in what you’re selling for the most part. Every business serves a certain niche and the people outside that niche just won’t be interested, no matter how hard you try. A direct mail list gives you leads to people who are interested.

Direct mail list brokers can get you a mailing list you can utilize to its fullest potential. It’s filled with people who have opted in to receive information about a certain type of product or products. If your product is in that particular category, now is the time to do some hard selling. The people on the list are more likely to hear what you have to say; if they’re not in the niche yet, let’s put it this way: Your business is the bandwagon, and they’re wondering if they should hop aboard or not. Your frequent (but not too frequent) e-mails about new products and services will keep them in the loop about what you’re doing.

Furthermore, a direct mail list lets you nurture your existing relationships with your current customers. Create a mailing list of your regular customers and keep them up to date on your products. While going after new business is always good, doing so at the expense of your existing clientele will make them feel slighted. Your core customers are the ones you absolutely don’t want to lose. In fact, they’re the ones who can honestly tell you what you’re doing right and also what you’re doing wrong. Use that information to accentuate your positives and minimize your negatives.

Whether you’re using it to expand or maintain, a direct mail list is an easy way to get the message out to your customers very quickly and easily. Be careful not to send out too many updates! Remember what we talked about 3 paragraphs ago about marketing strategies being annoying? Well, that’s one of those annoying things. Don’t turn your business updates into a makeshift Twitter account. Keep them frequent enough to stay fresh, but don’t send out several updates in a week. No one will believe you’re that innovative with your product line.

Self Directed IRA Rules – 4 Easy to Understand Basics to Get You Started Right

Jun 03 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

There are many self directed IRA rules that you will need to learn as time goes by. Here, I have some basic information about self directed IRAs. It should be just enough to get you started in the right direction.

#1 – Choosing a Custodian

Different custodians have different self directed IRA rules. Some of them do not offer all of your investment choices. Many companies charge high fees that seem rather unreasonable. They are supposed to be “reasonable and customary” by law, but I don’t think there is anything reasonable about per-transaction fees.

Your goal is to buy and sell and make profitable deals with your self directed IRAs. When the custodian charges a fee for each transaction that you make, you may delay and miss out on a highly profitable deal. Choose a custodial company that charges a reasonable annual maintenance fee and always check for hidden charges.

#2 – Allowable Investment Types

Under the current IRS laws, self directed IRAs can be invested in the traditional choices; stocks, bonds, CDs, etc. But, they may also be invested in less “traditional” investment vehicles, such as real estate and mortgage notes.

These choices are allowed under the self directed IRA rules set down by the IRS, but they are rarely offered. Many companies have created their own mutual funds and they want you to invest in those. Some self directed IRAs are managed by stock brokers, so buying stocks is your only option.

Who knows what to buy in the stock market these days? During the recent historic sell-off, the only stock value that rose was Campbell’s Soup! Until that day came and went, I would have never considered “soup” a good stock option.

#3 – Prohibited Transactions

Under the self directed IRA rules, some transactions are prohibited. They are either considered “self-dealing” or “indirect benefits”.

Self-dealing means that your account, a legal separate entity is buying something that you personally own. That’s prohibited.

The indirect benefits rule states that you cannot benefit personally, today, from an investment that you have made. Transactions that fall into this category include taking a vacation in an investment property owned by the account.

#4 – More about the Real Estate Option

I have seen many self directed IRAs grow very quickly by using the real estate option. The average rate of returns on CDs, money markets and T-bills is just about the same as the inflation rate. If you want to keep up with inflation, you have to use all of your options.

If you want your account to grow faster than the rate of inflation, you need the real estate option. If you are unfamiliar with real estate investing, you should know that there is a large market out there for more affordable housing.

The market has been flooded with high-priced mansions and those are not selling. But, middle income Americans need a place to live.

Under the self directed IRA rules, you can find these deals on your own or you can get some help, just not from your custodian. So, get the help you need and start making money.

Direct Sales – 4 Tips For Part-Timers to Expect From A Home Based Business

Jun 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Direct Sales is the perfect home based business model for the part-timer. Selling clothing, housewares,beauty products, nutritional products, and other goods through in-home parties,one-on-one consultations, and online can be big business done on a part time basis. Last year, the 16.1 million direct sales representatives working in the United States generated $28.3 billion in revenue, according to the Direct Selling Association (DSA). With 90% of direct sellers working their home based business part-time. No wonder this is a very lucrative home business model for the moonlighter.

So what can a newbie expect when looking for home business opportunities?

Be Realistic about Sales

Typically direct sales companies pay representatives commission on their own sales and on the sales of any reps they recruit (as well as the sales of their recruits’ recruits) — hence the nickname “multilevel marketing,” or “MLM.” As a result, a common complaint is that representatives, in their zeal to sign up new recruits, skew toward the hyperbolic, promising five- and six-figure revenues that multiply exponentially while you sleep. But that’s usually not the reality.

Set Your Own Hours

To be fair, many people don’t enter the direct sales market looking for a full-time job. Instead, most are moonlighters who are looking for supplemental income and usually work their home business about 10-20 hours per week. This kind of flexibility allows more time with kids and family unlike getting a part-time job. Unlike a job where you go to work and always make the same amount of money, as a direct seller you can you create residual income and leverage the efforts of your sales team to work smarter, not harder.

Researching Direct Sales Opportunities

Make sure to research companies before investing any money. A few online resources can help you learn more about MLMs and help you stay clear of any scams. A few to get you started are the Direct Selling Association, Direct Selling 411, and World Federation of Direct Selling Associations. All these resources are great sources for U.S. direct selling practices and ethics,helpful FAQs, glossary,and reputable associations and accreditations for legitimate home based business opportunities.

Weed Out the Scams

Be careful not all direct sales companies are honest. Pyramid schemes and other bogus opportunities are common. Watch out for opportunities that are exclusively dependent on recruiting people instead of selling products. Another warning sign is recruiters who are unwilling to share details of the compensation plan. Likewise, your initial investment should immediately yield something tangible, be it product samples or training and marketing materials. Getting started shouldn’t cost you thousands of dollars. Make sure the direct sales company has a buy-back policy, meaning that it should refund you for any unused or undamaged inventory you’ve purchased if you decide to quit.

Perhaps the biggest misconception is that you can get rich in a matter of weeks or months without lifting a finger or selling anything in your home based business. Nothing could be further from the truth. Like any honest business, you have to work hard for each and every dollar you make.

Direct Linking – Is Direct Linking Dead?

Jun 01 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Is direct linking dead? In this article I’ll give you the truth about direct linking and whether or not it’s still a viable option for a successful business.

Lets get started.

As you probably know direct linking is the act of simply acting as a connection between the buyer and a merchant. We do this with our affiliate links. Years ago many marketers got rich simply by direct linking and nothing else. The truth was it was a piece of cake.

What about now. No matter what anyone tells you, direct linking difficult today. It’s not the same as years ago and never will be again.

However here’s the next truth: It is still possible to make good money with direct linking, in fact I personally know quite a few marketers who make as much as 7 figures a year strictly with this model.

However their strategies are very different from what worked years ago.

With Google’s new rule that they will only display 1 ad with the same website address and other quality score issues, if you want to direct link to affiliate offers you need to adjust your techniques to allow for the new ‘rules’.

When i personally set up direct linking campaigns, I only bid on SUPER related keywords. Like the product name or very specific terms which my site is about. I will also write super relevant ads that have my keyword in the ad 1 or 2 times.

This allows me to get good quality scores and therefore I can be the one ad that Google displays per search result page.

So no, direct linking is not dead. However it is much more difficult to make work. So if you plan on direct linking then make sure you use the tips i gave you above and stay on top of things constantly.

On the other hand if you don’t like the disadvantages of direct linking then your other choice of course is to take your visitors to your own website, where you can write a presell article or product review. The aim of these pages is to provide unbiased, high value information to your visitors and essentially sell them on your chosen product before they even get to the sales page.

This strategy often results in higher conversions as well because they are getting the information from a 3rd party source that is not selling the product but simply giving an honest recommendation, testimonial or review.

Also, try to recommend products that you believe in because firstly you’ll be able to write a much better presell/review and secondly you’ll be doing things ethically which is always good for piece of mind.

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this article on PPC and direct linking.
