How Not To Make Money in Network Marketing

I was riding around thinking about how NOT to make money in Network Marketing last night, and wanted to share some of those thoughts with you.

I’ve had the honor to be around this industry for quite some time. I’ve seen the industry before the internet, when it was not nearly as accepted as it is now. Even still, it’s not nearly as accepted as it could ‘and should’ be. The reason for this in my observation comes down to the fact that the majority of people in network marketing are not evolving. They are not growing and getting better. They’re not becoming sharper, or wiser with their business decisions. They’re still thinking like employees, and like consumers, rather than learning to Think like a business owner.

They do not teach you business owner mentality in school. They do teach it in network marketing.

So much of the ‘old school’ aka pre-internet networking basics, are business principles that we’ve forgotten.  There have also been several ‘new gurus’ who speak out against all the old methods. Yes, some of their ideas are outdated. Others however are fundamental principles that are the underlying difference between the FEW who are making money in network marketing and all the rest who are barely breaking even.

In fact, the statistics on network marketing are horrid.

As an industry we are not doing a good enough job of representing what we do, at a level that would make them Want to join us. So much of the blame falls on OUR shoulders.

Still, there is good news. Network Marketing is such a flexible business model that it’s a matter of time, until a team of people take Full advantage of it.

The business model itself has the power and potential to truly transform entire communities.  Ripple Effects like these matter. Changing a community improves the chances that individuals from those communities will make an actual ‘impact’ in the society – impacting Other communities; creating chance for more individuals.

These are the ‘future results’ however. Many times these results won’t be experienced – at least not right away. There is work that must be done in the present in order to BRING those realities into our grasp. To, pull them out of our minds and into the flesh – (a quick Game of Thrones ref. 🙂 )- Why People of Color Need To Be In Network Marketing

With all of that being said; let me share a few ways NOT to make money in network marketing.

You can Not make money if you’re building with an Unstable Company –

This includes Pre-launches and companies that are less than 3 to 5 years old.  When building your network you will not make money long term if the company is not going to be around long term. It’s happened so many times, to so many people. Folks get excited about a new company, or a company that’s relatively new and after the company Grows Too Big for its britches it folds up. Time and time again, people lose their hard earned incomes; and are hit with Disillusion.

I thought We Were building Residual Income?

Some of these lessons have been learned through trial and error for me. We tried out several companies that had not been around past 5 years and they folded. Solavei, WakeUpNow, Crazygood – were all staples of our One MLM System; and they folded up on us. Yes, even though it’s true that Any business can go out of business, including a business that’s been around for more than 5 to 10 years, it is still ‘better’ to build around a stable company.   A few more thoughts….

You can Not make money if you’re Changing Sponsors All the Time –

Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should.  I was looking for some information to ‘back me up’ on that and found an article which, to my surprise turned out to be on the N-word. Great examples used throughout on why it’s not always a good idea to use that word. Just because you can does not mean you, or anyone should.  When reading the description for that article it was talking about how people should not buy a home they cannot really afford. You can buy a house that’s going to be super expensive just because you can. However, does that mean you should? Both, outstanding arguments.

Now let’s make one for network marketing – and why you should NOT change sponsors all the time. Sure, you can. But does that mean it’s a good idea?

What message are you sending to the people that sign up with you?  If loyalty is not going to be a cornerstone of your network marketing organization; then you’re building on quicksand. You might as well be out here marketing those unstable companies because you’re not going to be around long anyways. Neither will your team. You’re all disloyal. You’ve bred an environment of people who think they’re going to get ahead by stepping on the next guy. What’s that sound like to you?

It’s corporate america mentality – employee mentality. It’s not business owner mentality.

The person who sponsors you into an opportunity wants to make money with you. They have similar goals and can be an ally for you, when you come up against odds or negative people. They are someone you can lean on with questions, and usually have a little bit more experience than you. Should you take your time to find ‘the right sponsor’ ….? Sure.

However, once you pick a sponsor it’s a great idea to stick around. You’re going to learn a lot, but you have to do your part to learn. You have to allow that sponsor to challenge some of your ideas.  You have to change. The sponsor is really a guide to help you with that process.  As you change, as you grow, as you get better, so will your Odds at making real money in this industry. Because you will not be ‘alone’ – you’ll be part of something that is special and rare, in a society Full of disloyal people.

If you pick a sponsor that does unethical things like, stealing people out of YOUR downline – then naturally you should move on to someone who won’t do that to you.

Otherwise, just like grass, the Sponsor is not greener on the other side; it’s green where you water it.

Make Money Watering Your Grass

Which brings me to this last point. You can Not make money if You’re Lazy!

Should be a given but it’s not.

Most people who join network marketing are actually lazy. These tend to be the people who do not want to abide by the rules of society. They don’t want to get up early or go to a job and sit for hours at a time. They do not want to spend energy and/or effort at getting better On their jobs. We are in a society that doesn’t really ‘force’ people to work hard. It’s an Option.

People bring that mentality with them into network marketing. You Can not make money with this mentality though.

This should be a given but it’s So common for people to do absolutely nothing; and expect real results.

I recently saw a woman in a Group for TheConversionPros – saying she needed help! She had signed up a full week ago, and didn’t have any leads; After 7 whole days.

Like, for real?

The issue though is how common this is. She’s one of thousands if not higher who do the same thing.  There are also thousands who join that same group, and others like it for Network Marketing Companies to communicate to their entire organization; who ask questions that are already answered in the Backoffice; and in the Files Of those Groups; because too many people want things done for them; rather than have the desire to do things for themselves. In fact – to be more accurate, people do not understand WHEN to do things for themselves, and when things should be done for them.

For example – not everyone should be building their own websites; not everyone should have a blog, or should be making videos. Some of you need to let others do some of those things for you. However, Everyone needs to read books on network marketing, on success, on thinking like successful people. You should do this for your self. You should read through the documents pertaining to your network marketing company, for your self. You should watch any videos that they’ve created already, for your self – and on your own. You shouldn’t need a sponsor to tell you to do this; but especially when your sponsor tells you to do this, you Must.

You can not make money if you Pick and Choose ‘when’ to be Self Motivated.

It’s so much easier to stay motivated when you’re working with people you know, like and trust. This is why developing that relationship with your sponsor matters so that when times get tough, they’ll be there to lift your spirits.  If together you’re pushing companies that might not be around, it’ll be difficult to believe what your Sponsor has to say. But if together you’re both promoting something of value that’s stable – that’s something to get, and stay excited about. That’s something that others will be motivated to participate in. But it’s up to YOU to be motivated enough to create that environment for others to join.

As you can see these are ‘simple’ factors – and the difference between the people making money in MLM and the rest, are not huge differences.

It’s the small things that matter afterall!

CopyPasteCash.com … is there any value in it?

The short answer is YES – there is value in just about everything although not much value in everything. I thought CopyPasteCash was another here today and gone tomorrow business. It was simple, and something that seemed to be TOO simple.

In a way that is exactly why it’s still here and not gone… and why it’s been a great way for so many people to make money. But I want to do more than just gloss over how great this opportunity can be – I want to talk specifically about how YOU Can get the most value out of it, or else what good is this to you?

Getting REAL Value from CopyPasteCash.com

The first thing you must do to get REAL Value out of CopyPasteCash is to watch the Tutorial Videos First – before you do anything else.

You’ll start to notice how this system rewards you for taking action and that is a lot like any area of business where you wish to succeed. YOU Must take action, and by getting training before taking action, the actions you take will get you RESULTS!

The second thing you must do after watching the Tutorial videos is CONTACT the person that referred you and COMMUNICATE with them… Do not attempt to work this by yourself. Let others know that you’ve done some work, and that you’re about to begin posting ads.

The third thing you MUST do is allow that person to hold you accountable. This is all about daily consistent action; and if you do not act daily you will not see the results you signed up for. Far too often people sign up for things, and have no one to hold them accountable. IT then becomes easy NOT to reach the daily goals that you should be setting for yourself. Let someone else keep you on target to reach your goals with this income opportunity.

This just in from FantaZ

Al King is not big on Hype — so when I read something, I’ll make sure to share My view point as well.

September 1st is HERE – lots of people who have been promoting FantaZ logged onto the site, to see …. nothing.

So I checked their facebook feed, and saw some interestingly exciting news — but again, it looks like we’re actually still “waiting” — which I am ok with; it’s better to take your time and get it right, than worry about meeting a deadline.

So here is the Latest NEWS Release from FantaZ.com’s Facebook Wall.

FantaZ is unlike any company you have encountered in the past. It aims for achieving a brand new paradigm in gaming, business and entertainment and will achieve that in spades. In the course of making this product, we have created tremendous synergies between many bright minds from many companies to achieve what we are about to roll out. In our review today we have determined that our very best next move is to work through a few more of the site integration details we are encountering as we incorporate very complicated software from multiple vendors. Then as soon as is possible, we will provide all of our early registrants with free FAKE MONEY accounts so that you may go onto the site and beta test with us. We are aware of some of the beta fixes yet to be done and with your help, we will learn of the others as well. We welcome our early FantaZ Pioneers to come to the site and play our introductory games and get a feeling of how the site will operate. But this is only just the beginning. We are still incorporating our FantaZLive Sports games that will come online in the near future, along with full season FantaZSports and FantaZ Fashion Divaz. In addition, we have countless new games that are coming to us from developers around the world that are going to be rolling out on our platform just as fast as we can intelligently integrate them into our tournament programs. We are very excited to be working with you in this project and hugely appreciative of your energy and enthusiasm for FantaZ. We can clearly tell you that the very best has yet to begin. In the interim, we are not charging anyone to join or to play games until we are ready to play for money. Then everyone will be sent their full registration package and your credit cards will be charged at that time. Please use this interim opportunity to continue to introduce your friends around the world to our platform and to see how you can grow your downline and set yourself up for fast start bonuses by signing up 5 Commission Qualified ZBOs in your first 30 days…. plus an additional $25 per each Commission Qualified ZBO you sign thereafter. We recognize that everyone wants to make everything happen yesterday. But greatness is not achieved through those methods. It is achieved by taking the time to do everything right. The nature of genius is to grasp the knowable, even when no one else recognizes that it is present. We will keep you updated at every opportunity. Welcome to the world of FantaZ… Where Skill Pays.

Sounds interesting – and plausible as well — this is how business goes folks; with anything NEW there will be hiccups along the way. When making a decision as a business owner to get involved with a NEW company, these are the types of things to keep in mind.

For some people, they do not want to deal with the headaches involved with a startup company. Others however, will hang on due to the tremendous benefits that come with positioning yourself ahead of a trend; that is what we are looking at here, as Onling Gaming is HUGE and there are no signs of it slowing down — if this company is going to PAY People to play games, then you should get positioned NOW.
