Business Training – A Message for Networkers Networking On Facebook

Every now and then we find ourselves having to Unfriend people on Facebook. They do not always respond well to being unfriended either, and it’s sad when they do. I was typing up a post to address all the networkers who seem to get this entirely wrong, nearly all the time – and decided the message was better suited for This Blog instead.

Because when it comes to understanding what it takes to be successful in business, It’s All Of It – Including having an Understanding of WHAT you are doing as a networker. The message I put together below, will explain most of it – I’ll include a few more links to help you find your way.

Dedicated to all the networkers, using social networks to find business partners… in hopes you’ll Finally wake up and learn to do this, the right way.

lol, lots of these Networkers have it twisted.This is Facebook. We’re on here “networking” — if over the course of Networking, we discover that we have NO INTENT to ever do business together —- it’s actually Very ok, to “unfriend” a person on Facebook.Again, lots of yall have it Twisted. Facebook may call it “Friends” – but that doesn’t mean we are Friends…… come on People……. for real.Friends are people I grew up with; People I’ve met and gotten to know over the years. Friends are the People I see all the time, and talk to all the time.

Do we Talk to each other all the time???

Do we See Each other all the time??

Did we Grow up Together? Are we Related?

If not………. We’re not “friends” ……..

I’m not sure what world people grew up in where they are So Easy to Define random people as their Friends; but that’s not what the Definition of the Term means….

Friends normally GO THROUGH SHIT Together, and Remain FRIENDS after going THROUGH Shit together —— and ‘cyber-meeting’ someone through a Social Network doesn’t actually give you and that other person a real chance to “experience shit together” ……….. Most of you networkers, who only wanna spam your opportunity on people; Do not have “friends” – and when people you Spam all the time, decide to Unfriend you, they’re not “mad at you” …. or “bent out of shape” …. perhaps they’re a veteran who uses Facebook for Networking; and Sorting; and perhaps they’ve decided You’re not the person they want on their “list” –

Because Networkers, that’s all this facebook thing is; Outside of your “real friends” those of you who are networking; the Fellow-Networkers you’ve added on here; are just Prospects on your List. It’s the truth, why not speak on it?

Some of us will end up doing business together.

Most of us will not.

Nothing is WRONG with that though.

We’re not ALL gonna be homies …. We’re not in BUSINESS to make friends; I got friends already. I’m in BUSINESS to make MONEY. We can be Friends later after we’re making a bunch of money together…..

So, Just setting the record straight for the networkers who have this twisted.

I’m a veteran. I got a game plan. I’m going into the next Phase, and if you get cut off my facebook list, so what. It doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. It doesn’t mean I hate you and think you’re a failure. It doesn’t think i have any hard feelings towards you. I’m just sorting my list. That’s it and that’s all.

I say it often, because these networkers need the reminder – but Stop taking business personally. It’s just business.

Do not be fooled into thinking you need to preserve every single relationship. Some people are just not who you are looking for, to get where you want to go….

However, if you really want to make “friends” with people you add on facebook, then you need to BE a Friend. You need to be supportive, actually interested in them; You need to give a damn about their best interest and not your own.

If you’ve decided to BE a friend to someone else, and they have not returned your friendship, you do not have to continue being that persons friend; You can look for someone else instead – “Choose Your Friends Wisely” –

The same is to be said about growing a successful MLM organization; you MUST choose your business partners wisely. You must become, a Master at Sorting people.

Facebook is an awesome sorting tool, but there are times when people do not understand the real purpose of facebook. Sadly, sometimes it’s the people who make a lot of videos and talk as if they are leaders in our industry, who truly do not know what network marketing is about; They’re just in it for a buck.

The truth is, if you’re willing to make videos and Sound like an Authority, there are people who’ll sign up with you. But, I can say without a doubt, that the ones who’ll Stay with you are the ones you actually take the time to get to know – You’ll also find while Trying to get to know them, that they don’t really want to know you; and if that’s the case – No problem, this is business, you simply let them go.

This is a Sorting Game. You’re looking for the people that are looking for you.

TNG Covering the Way to Make Money From All Angles

Yes, there is only one way to make money – the RIGHT way. We’re going to cover it from all angles. YOU will benefit from it all.

NEW courses announced that will focus on the way to make money with TNG – we’re pro multiple streams of income and are all about teaching others how to do it. The new youtube channel starts out by discouraging people from taking the advice of negative people, mentors, uplines and even sidelines.

The first video really gets the wheels in motion for a channel that is going to be chock full of information on how to take advantage of several ways to make money online, and offline too.

The first program under the scope is Crazygood – a favorite of TopNetworkersGroup merely because of it’s simplicity – and the fact they’ve paid out for nearly 3 years is impressive. BUT several people struggle to make money with it.

Through this first series of articles and videos, we’ll break everything down for you; whether you’ve had business training or not, we’re going to show you how to make money with Crazygood, PennyMatrix, LevelOneNetwork, 1mlmsystem – and so much more.

UPDATE from August 26th, 2013 – New articles, and materials from the CEO and Founder of TNG – literally covering it from All angles.

Earlier today I shared an article that went over many of my personal experiences both in this MLM industry and specifically with Crazygood. I have been very open and candid about Crazygood from the beginning. People always had complaints.

But We’re talking bout a case of Attitude – Where perception truly is reality; and if a person looks for problems they will surely find them. However, if a person will Look for opportunity they cannot help but spot it everywhere that they look. The fact that Crazygood has paid me every single month for the past 3 years confirms my feeling that this is the opportunity every man or woman in the MLM industry ‘should’ participate in.

Now that’s a perfect world; however Crazygood isn’t a perfect website. In spite it’s problems we still find solutions and ways to overcome those challenges – To get paid month after month, for the past 3 years (earning over $10 each month —) This also proves a Point.

If you really want to be successful this is the ONLY team that can teach you how.

You MUST use the advice we give you.

Or else the advice, will not work.

If a personal trainer recommends exercise to shed a few pounds; will you reach your goal and shed those pounds if you ignore the advice you’re given?

Of course not; and yet people do this All the time; They ignore or do not even take any business training – ignore the advice of their uplines and sponsors; but expect to meet their financial goal. It’s silly … to be frank.

Here are more TOOLS and RESOURCES you can use to meet your financial goals.

 

Maybe it’s You, and Not Crazygood

*Update 2/25/2015 ::: Crazygood Went out of Business – and you can read MUCH more about it in this article, which discusses how We ended up Replacing Crazygood with GDI in our One MLM System — This article includes our official video with thoughts on why CG was unable to make it past 3 years in business. Also – educate yourself about business – and understand that it’s rare for ANY Business to make it past 5 years in business; even fewer make it past 10. Our alignment with GDI, is a great move for us all.

The One MLM System To Rule Them All

Crazygood is an Awesome Opportunity………  If you’re not having success with it, then perhaps it’s you and Not Crazygood?

Where else on the Wide World Web can YOU find a $10/mo Opportunity that pays you and I $1 per referral, per month, through 5 levels ….

Other than GDI – there are NO Other ‘opportunities’ like that On the internet today.

Now, there are several $10 business opportunities; but NONE pay out as much as this one does; That makes this something special.

But if YOU Don’t Know that …. how will the people YOU are talking to?

If you’re running up to people telling them about Crazygood, and you’re not saying the right things in that conversation to Sign people up; then perhaps What you’re saying is wrong?

Have you thought about that?

Unless you already have people that will follow you into anything you are doing, you Must embrace the approaches of Network Marketing that have worked for decades…

Such as…

#1 – Getting Yourself Out of The Way!

Most people in Network Marketing talk too much…. its true. Lots of people join because they see a way for Other people to listen to them talk.

Some people actually LIKE the sound of their own voice so much, it motivates them to join MLM opportunities; the problem with these people is, they never LISTEN and/or LEARN what they should be talking about; because they are too busy talking….

One of the KEYS to getting yourself out of the way is … Knowing how and when to SHUT UP!

Most of the Top Money earners are GREAT at Shutting up, at the right time – they know when to talk; they know when to shut up; and if you’re struggling to sponsor people into a $10 opportunity, this is the first place you should examine yourself…

Are you talking too much?

Do you need to shut up?

Here are some examples to help you decide………

You approach someone that you know, ask them if they’d like to make money online with you, and then…. what do you do?

Do you wait for them to answer you?

Or do you SHOVE a LINK In their face/inbox/email —-without ever giving them a chance to Respond to your question?

Or perhaps they answer you and say “Sure, I’d like to make money, doing what?” … and then YOU think that is YOUR moment to Talk, so you explain every detail and aspect of crazygood; leaving out all the things they really need to hear; and Never once send them to a Website to view a presentation, NOR do you think of Edifying a business partner to talk to THEM on your behalf — all because you’re too busy Talking and Yapping away.

Your prospect decides this isn’t for them — and you can’t figure out why.

Did the person that sponsored YOU explain the business?

Or, did they Shut up, and Show you the business?

If they’re GOOD at this, they shut up and Showed you the business; so that YOU could see the business and decide for yourself if YOU wanted in the business. That’s what you need to learn how to do; You’ve gotta stop giving presentations before the presentations; you’ll get your chances to shine, you’ll get your chances to talk, you’ll eventually get crowds coming to see you … once you learn how to shut up, and show the business.

#2 Edifying and Using Team Partners

Network Marketing is a Team Sport; Too many individuals are joining the industry today; and here is why – the ability to conduct online credit card transactions has made it so much easier for anyone to join any company; at any time…

So people join every single day, who have not been brought through the process properly – and when the process is shown to them, they immediately judge it as too hard, too difficult, too time consuming, or some other ‘too’ – all because they were not introduced properly.

One of the most tragic aspects of this New Age in MLM where anyone can join, is the lost art of Edification…

People joining our industry are bringing the nonsense they got from Corporate America into our wonderful industry; such as backstabbing, stealing, talking bad about others — none of that has a place in Network Marketing ‘done right’ — and it’s a Major reason why people are struggling to succeed.

Edification is a Major Skill we all must have, and use if we expect to get results; Especially with Crazygood. If you just joined today, there are people who have been around longer than you; you need to respect these people — that’s where most of this begins; if you do not respect others; You will not edify others.

IF you do not edify others; No one will ever edify you.

Did that last part make sense?

When we build up respect for our partners; They can build up respect for us; When people see people who are speaking highly of each other, they want to be part of that; See most of you keep making Crazygood ‘the deal’ – you don’t get it…

You really don’t get it!

Crazygood is just a Way to make money; but we Must learn how to work ‘together’ if we are going to make Money together… the better we are at working together, the MORE money we are going to make together; but we must work together; not as individuals.

I’ve been on Crazygood for 2 years; and I have rarely done a 3way for anyone on my team; the few times that I have, I was not edified – and the people I was being asked to speak to, had No respect for me, or my opinion …

How do you think those calls went?

The point of Edifying others is to give our prospects a Reason to Listen – that’s mostly what they want to know  – “Who is your business partner and why should I listen to them?”

.. when YOU do your job properly, you tell your prospect Why they should listen  and like magic, most of your prospects will listen; and show respect while they listen…

When you get good at edifying your business partners, next you’ll learn how important it is to edify your team; to edify your calls; to edify your websites; your videos; This is a Lost Art and if We do not make this an Important part of what we do; we’re asking to fail!

#3 Using Events to Build …

This is our last  thing that I Must point out – the Importance of using Events to build your business. Events are ‘live’ conference calls, webinars, home meetings, or hotel meetings.

When we bring guests to an event and they hear 10 to 20 other people who are as excited about ‘something’ as you are; it builds more excitement for that guest as well.

We ran some experiments with our Crazygood Live Office; where myself and a business partner brought in close to 3,000 people that were ‘clicking to make money’ — We signed up 10-15 NEW business partners; simply because they saw PEOPLE in the room.  The live office shows you how many people are currently online; So people would drop in, see 1,000 people logged in, and the FIRST Thing they started to do was ask us “what is going on?”

When people see Other people doing something, They want to do it too.

Using, and building Events is the MOST important thing we do.

All top producers in any opportunity do this …

However in the past 2 years with crazygood; I’ve seen several leaders, including myself and our team, Hold Weekly Calls that people just didn’t show up for…

And you people want to make money??

You wonder why it’s not happening for you??

Showing up to events is part of it; Inviting guests to events is the other part.

OUR job, when working together, is to BUILD from “event to event” … It’s to use the proper language and approaches to invite guests to Events that will properly expose them to what we’re seeking to do … together; and the better we are at that; the more people will want to join ‘us’ …

So if there is a Live Call on Monday, a Webinar on Thursday, and a Live Meeting on Saturday …. YOU should take a guest to each event.

You shut up, get yourself out of the way, edify a business partner, allow them to help invite your guest to the Conference Call on Monday, where they will hear from leaders on the team; get excited; and then your business partner edifies YOU to your guest, so that you can be successful at inviting them to the live Webinar on Thursday; Because you put in work, your leaders may recognize you on the call, in front of everyone on the team – including your guest — and if they do not Join you after the Webinar, but are still excited – THEY will come to the LIVE event on Saturday; after the live event — If they don’t sign up; it’s probably just not for them — however — it has been proven over several decades that when we build in this manner, we increase the odds of sponsoring new people.

Chances are, YOU are not doing ANY Of these 3 things…

So see, while you are making excuses, OUR team is making money.

*UPDATE 8/26/13 – Since Writing this post, a few changes have occurred with Crazygood. I do not know if there was a feud between ownership and their web designer; but there are several bugs that are absolutely not going to please people with poor attitudes; For the past several months it has been ‘difficult’ though, not impossible, to add Friends or even accept friend requests. So like with anything in life, Winners find Solutions.

Here are 2 quick Instructions to Work-Around this Bug in the Crazygood Code.

No Holes In Your Matrix

I can remember it very clear, about a year ago this ‘idea’ of social networks that pay rolled out. One of the first I saw was YourNight.

I’m not aware of any others that were doing this – so like many people I joined….. there was a small fee of $10/mo – which I felt was pretty affordable however, I never paid.

I simply used the site free, told a few people, and referred a handful of others – none of them paid either – So in the few short weeks I was promoting the site, I made absolutely no money. This is not about Yournight, so I do not want to spend much time on it. There were a few people who did Very well; they enrolled Thousands, and some of them paid – and so those teams made some money.

Then, another NEW social network came out – it was called, Aaachoo.

The PITCH that got my attention was this … “No Holes In Your Matrix” – which made perfect sense; Yournight had Holes; If people did not upgrade, they did not make money and neither did you.

So i loved the concept.

That’s truly what I look at when I evaluate a business – their idea, their concept, and their Opportunity; Immediately I and many others saw how THIS would be different; Yet another issue emerged – the Owner.

Steve Stigman will never get my money again.

There is tons of info about the fall of Aaachoo – and so again, I will not linger – just a month after Aaachoo failed misrably … a NEW network emerged…. Crazygood.com – $10/mo – and NO holes In Your Matrix.

I preferred this to the Join for Free and upgrade later – because I know that most will never upgrade later; and if a person is not willing to pay $10/mo for a chance to grow a Serious 6 figure per month income, they’re not serious about making money.

GET MORE Information on Crazygood, to find out why nearly a Year later, I’m So Glad I joined and stuck it out; The $10 investment has worked out to an extra $600 per year – not bad; and the good news is, the earnings continue to go up; Like any GOOD opportunity, Not everyone “see’s” it….

My team and I continue to build and find those who do.

SWOM Gold Members: Withdraw you Balance!

I’ve been one of the foremost promoters of SWOM since I joined in the middle of June 2010 – One of the reasons that I joined Swom, is because I am pretty good at ‘spotting trends’ and this one is a NEW trend that’s not going anywhere.

Swom was not the first ‘social network that pays you to be a social networker’ – but it’s concept was new, and fresh; relatively speaking. In the beginning, it was very exciting, as you could actually earn money FOR socially networking with others on the site.

Their compensation plan however, Changes.

Anyone who understands business, or networking, realizes how important the compensation plan is. If you’re not able to make money in a company, it is not a good business decision to remain there. IF you are operating ‘in the red’ – your business is about to go OUT of business.

That is what was happening to many people at SWOM; I didn’t realize it, until it happened to me, but SWOM is going around deactivating members of the site, even GOLD members of the site, for questioning the changes the site has made. Seems the people running SWOM think they are the Gestapo.

So if you are a Gold Member with SWOM, it’s IMPORTANT that you protect yourself, and Withdraw your Earnings NOW. Do not leave the balance on the books, because when Swom terminates you, they KEEP YOUR MONEY!

It happened to me …

As a Gold Member of SWOM, I thought the $25 per month I was paying allowed me to have input in how the site was going; I thought the 35 personal Referrals I brought to the site, many of whom were Gold for a time, allowed me to have input – but when My Input suggested that perhaps SWOM was heading in the wrong direction, I was terminated Immediately.

There was No warning Letter. No administrator reached out to discuss anything with me. I was not asked by the people running the site to do anything differently – which is what SHOULD happen, and always happens with successfully run companies… and especially, websites.

Think about Facebook for a moment …

When Facebook ‘thinks’ you are adding too many friends at once, or thinks you ‘might’ be a bot; they send a warning message. They tell you that if you continue doing something, that they feel is not ‘good for the community’ that you will be removed. Then, AFTER they send that warning, if a person continues, the company has protected itself, by having sent the Warning first. No dissatisfied user can claim, that they were not warned.

I received NO Warnings

Had I known there could Potentially be a threat of me being terminated, simply for discussing how the Changes in the Compensation Plan might affect those of that were not only on the site to network, but – let’s be honest – to Make Money.

YES, the real value is in the networking, the people you can meet, the fact that many of the members of that community are ‘business minded individuals’ – looking for solid investments, more stable opportunities — BUT, there are Millions of people just like that, on Facebook.

The ongoing objection, especially now, when it comes to Social Networks that Pay you to Network is this “Why pay money for something I can get for free?”

The answer to this Objection, MUST be “Because you can Make MONEY to do, what you are already doing for FREE” – or else, it will not attract people to what you’re asking them to be apart of.

For presenting this, I was attacked by people who’ve fallen in love with the company… and that is understandable.

When we look at the network marketing industry, 97% of people in this industry are NOT Making money. Many of these people remain with Bad companies, that are too challenging for them to make money in; but they’ve fallen in love with the company – or do not want to admit to others, that they picked a company, that isn’t as good as they thought it was when they first signed up; SO instead of making money, they LOSE Money, by remaining with a ship, that is sinking.

Many stick with these companies, until those companies go OUT of business; only to find themselves, in love with a company, that was not in Love with them.

Because of ongoing scenarios like this, our industry gets a bad reputation. That is one of the reasons I and Other serious networkers are coming together under the Moniker of “The Top Networkers Group” – we want to help create more Professional Networkers, who approach business, LIKE it’s a business – not like it’s a Hobby.

That pretty much is what SWOM has become.

It went from a great way to earn money; to a place where people are just ‘hanging out’ – and that does not work, for Serious, Professional Marketers, who get into this, to Make Money.

This is why I am urging ALL members of SWOM To withdraw your money, before SWOM terminates you for doing something ‘they do not like’ – without warning – and Keeps all of your Hard earned Money … and yes, it’s hard earned.

Let’s talk about how the comp plan changed, in just the few short months I was part of their Company.

Let’s discuss the original compensation plan.

Points = Money. You get a Point for things like, adding friends, interacting with the friends you add, joining groups, and encouraging free members, also known as blue members, to upgrade to Gold – of course only Gold members earn money for their Points, and the value of those points, Vary.

This was always iffy, but it worked for a while – they reward you additional, community chest points, for the participation – the more you participate, the more likely you’ll win “CC’s” – and again, for a time, this was good.

The issue, is that the Value of the Points continued to go down from month to month. People were earning less money, for the same effort; working harder the next month, to earn even Less than the month before. This made it difficult to KEEP Gold members Gold.

While attrition is normal for all companies, your Reputation takes a hit, when you are referring people to a company that continues to pay out LESS and Less each month, to the people who helped build it.

At some point, People are going to speak out, and that is what I did.

Now, when they made the decision to Terminate my account, I politely asked them to send me the Balance of my Earned Income.

They did not.

They will not respond to my requests.

If it happened to me, It will happen to you too. So, to be safe, Withdraw your Earnings – If you want to be Gold, I advise paying them $25 each month – what MOST Gold members on SWOM are doing is, living off of ‘earnings’ – They earned money when people they referred, upgraded to Gold; They earn money when those Gold members Stay Gold.

If you’re Earning money, Swom can take your $25 from the balance; So if you earn $100 in a month, you could go 4 months, without paying ‘out of your pocket’ – but again – the RISK – is that you’ll be Terminated, and NEVER see your Money.

Yes, I am indeed bothered that I was terminated, without warning, and did not receive my money that I earned. In all jobs, all companies, when people are terminated, let go, or fired, they are Paid for the work they did.

When companies like this, are not operating out of a code of ethics, Members of our industry NEED to be notified; We as leaders, have a responsibility to protect our industry, and each other – and we do not need companies like SWOM, giving ‘what we do’ a bad name.

What really, I feel, caused SWOM to act to prompt in removing me I was promoting another social network that pays; That network, CrazyGood. They have a much more ‘traditional compensation plan’ that is simple, the earnings do not vary, and you know what you are making for your efforts.

My guess is, SWOM is on the verge of going Out of business, and felt threatened. That being said, they should have paid me my money. I’d still promote Crazygood, over joining SWOM, but I’d do so, without feeling that SWOM is possibly scamming people, promising to pay them money, when ‘really’ what they are doing is, looking for ‘reasons’ NOT to.

So, Don’t let this happen to you. If you are a Gold Member, Withdraw your Money to AlertPay asap; so that you do not LOSE it – withdraw it EVERY month, to make sure you are able to hold onto it.

If you decide, that you’re really not making money with SWOM, that it’s too difficult to earn a profit from month to month – do not give up on the ‘idea’ – just realize you are operating in the wrong ‘company’ – and need to find one that does, what they say they will do.

This is the Social Network that I see taking the net by storm, ‘eventually’ – right now this concept is still a Baby; it’s very EARLY to get involved. People will not be leaving Facebook, or Myspace anytime soon. And I don’t think people should. Sadly, there will always be people who continue to make others Wealthy, and pass up on the opportunity to make Themselves wealthy as well – but there will also, always be people who will NOT pass up that opportunity. Crazygood is a $10/mo investment – how fast can you find 10 friends, with $10 = how fast you can Eliminate YOUR monthly payment. Help those 10 do the same, and you’re earning $100 Per month, every single month. They help their 10 do the same, and you are earning $1,100 Per Month … You can watch the video below, to see just how Crazy this compensation gets.
