Dynamic Landing and Lead Capture Pages: David Dubbs Updates TCP

Let’s talk about landing and Lead Capture Pages. With a new update for TCP (The Conversion Pros) David Dubbs, the founder, goes over the latest tool to making dynamic landing pages and capture pages. It’s the new ‘Drag and Drop’ tool. This is a quick overview which shows you just how easy these tools are to use.

We replaced Stiforp Profits in our One MLM System with TheConversionPros more than a year ago now.  It was one of the best decisons possible, as it gives our team members more flexibility to make Landing Pages, or Lead Capture Pages to promote our team. They can also promote other projects that they are working on, outside of our group efforts.  These are the things networkers were looking to do anyways, and TCP gave us a way, to give Our members this ability – while preaching structure.

Do You need a System that comes with Landing Pages and Lead Capture Pages?

Below are a few articles from TNG about TCP :

The Lead capture pages have a lot to do with how top earners are making money in this business.  They build lists, then communicate with those lists.  It’s a major step that marketers overlook.  Throwing mud against walls to see what sticks, will never be as effective as sorting. True sorting is all about making lists, adding to those lists, and yes, removing names from those lists.

The LIST is the true foundation of any business.

Lead capture pages, allow you to get the names and emails (or phone numbers) of people who are interested. A person won’t fill that out if they aren’t.  When you deal with people who are interested in what you have, the sale tends to be the easy part.  TCP will teach you how to be these tools to be effective with your recruiting effots.

Why People Say No To Network Marketing

I don’t want to beat around the bush. I’m going to tell you Why people say no to network marketing. Are you ready …. ? The answer is … Conditioning.   It’s that simple, and that is why you are never going to get ‘through’ to some people.  In network marketing, if you are in a company with professional training, you will be taught to Sort. Too many people in network marketing however, are not in good MLM Companies, and do not work with well trained teams.  So unfortunately they are being taught to ‘sell’… which does not work, with the MLM business model.

That’s where people start talking about being scammed by network marketing.  They’re ‘sold a dream’ instead of reality, and ‘sold’ into buying tools to build a house of cards.  It’s because someone, decided to sell rather than sort.  When you are sorting, you are going into the ‘process of recruiting’ without getting emotional over who says yes, or no.  You’ll find people who are ‘looking for’ what you are offering to them.  You aren’t in the convincing business, and aren’t getting your feelings hurt by rejection.  This is a mental level that people have to work to reach.  It does not come natural to most people. (See our 1mlmsystem Training Information now)

Especially for anyone who’s like me, and has competitive fire burning inside.  When someone says no, or makes ‘fun’ of your income opportunity the instinct is to ‘win’ that encounter.  You won’t ‘overcome’ conditioning…

why people say no to network marketing

That too, is why people say No to Network Marketing. The people who are making fun of your opportunity are ‘also’ trying to win that encounter. Instead of recruiting, you’ve gotten yourself into a contest. Unfortunately because of the conditioning I mentioned earlier, nothing you ‘say’ is going to ‘win’ them over.  Let me give you an even more insightful understanding of what I mean by conditioning.

I’ll summarize this : The other day I shared a ‘well known example’ on my facebook…. which I put in quotes in case it isn’t well known, to you.

4 monkeys in a cage:a Ladder with a Banana at the Top;

Every time the Monkeys climb the ladder they get a Tremendous SHOCK!

After all 4 have been SHOCKED several times, they learn to stop climbing the ladder.

1 monkey is replaced with a New monkey who’s never been shocked; but when ever he attempts to climb the ladder the other 3 stop him!

Eventually that monkey stops trying, and another monkey is replaced – once again the New monkey attempts to climb, and all 3 monkeys (even the one who’s never been SHOCKED) stop him until, the new monkey no longer tries to climb.

After a while, all 4 monkeys have been replaced.

None of them attempting to climb the ladder.

None of them know why.

As it turns out there were five monkeys, but you’ll get the drift.

This is why people say No to network marketing. They’ve been conditioned to look for a job, and not to own the job. SO many people throughout our society have been trained to associate ‘pain’ with recruiting. Even the idea of being rejected, is something people have ‘learned’ to identify as a bad experience. Truth is, rejection is a great experience.  It helps you identify who you can make money with, and who is just a distraction.

When people say No to your network marketing opportunity, let them go.

Your ‘job’ is to sort for the people who want what you have. In order to find those people, you don’t have time for contests.  When people have been conditioned to say no to strangers, they’ll say no to a business opportunity as well. It does not matter how great the opportunity ‘sounds’ to you. To them, the banana looks a lot different, and it’s just not worth it.  They’ve been conditioned to avoid the pain.  Work With TopNetworkersGroup – Get started by Joining our Email List and signing up for our Team building “System” – the One MLM System to Rule Them All. 

Multiple Streams of MLM Income by TNG

Let me put this on the record, as far as multiple streams of MLM income goes.

There has been much debate over the past 5 years over whether or not multiple streams of MLM income is a good idea. Many of the people who are considered to be leaders of the network marketing (MLM) industry have been unified in speaking against it. Most of them have the same message, and that is how you know that they are not really putting serious thought into whether it’s really possible  or not. However they are the ‘leaders’ and so what they say, matters.

People take them at their word – and do not consider whether or not these leaders have ulterior motives for the advice they are handing out so vigorously.  They’ve even got newbies who’ve only been inside of the MLM industry for 3 years repeating their jargon, word for word. They’ll say that it’s too confusing for new people. They’ll tell you that joining multiple MLM programs scatters your focus. I even saw a person today bring up that sometimes people will sign up for a MLM System – but that newbies still cannot focus with everything all in one place.

Seems like that person saw our system and just wanted to speak against anything that ‘might’ promote the idea of multiple streams of MLM income.

Meanwhile.

97% of people in the MLM industry are not making money.

Let me restate that.

It’s important for all of us to understand that right now, 97% of the people in MLM companies are spending more money than they are making.

This statistic has been a reality for my entire career inside of network marketing. That was the stat in 1999. That is the stat in 2016.

As an industry we are not taking this issue seriously enough. Our “leaders” are not taking this issue seriously enough.

Instead they are seeking to maintain the empire that they have built – for themselves. They have no regard for the rest of us in this industry….

The advice to avoid multiple streams of MLM income is misguided at best.

At it’s most malicious level, this advice is what’s keeping the industry where it’s at right now. Unfortunately, we are living in a time when MLM should be creating more and more millionaires and thousandaires and early retirees than ever before. Instead, not much has changed. As the job market continues to worsen, unfortunately MLM remains an option that isn’t ‘very good’ for the masses.

Over the years, I’ve been tackling this topic – as you’ll see Other related posts here in regards to this Topic.

I’ve even made sure to ‘back it up’ – with commentary I shared in a “Famous Facebook Rant on Multiple Streams of Income” – featuring T.D. Jakes –

What I may NOT have done, is make it clear that I Totally understand why so many leaders Speak Against Multiple Streams of MLM Income

They’ve yet to see anyone really pull it off.

There are No “teams” in network marketing that have a Duplicatable system – that Produces People who are Making real money in Multiple MLM companies.

Because the ability to even JOIN Several MLM Companies is pretty new. We’re talking the last 5-7 years when the internet got faster and more programmers brought their talents to the internets.

This has made it more possible than ever before for more and more MLM Companies to get started.

multiple streams of mlm income is possible

Meanwhile,

Because no one is teaching people HOW to take advantage of the industry today – while focusing so heavily against multiple streams of MLM income a vicious cycle has been created that we Must Stop!

The Cycle is, that no matter how hard people Trump this message, people will Continue to join multiple MLM companies. People are actually hitting Ceilings in their earnings, and we’ve seen so many Top MLM earners Leave their company after 4-5 years, to join a Newer company. It’s basically a chance for them to Step into a New situation with all the earnings from their previous venture, and ‘tap into a new market’ with many of their core leaders. You cannot be upset with people for doing this, but who’s really winning in those situations?

So rather than ignore the fact that people are going to ‘attempt’ to juggle multiple MLM opportunities one way or another, we ‘should’ be addressing ‘how to do it right’.

That is Exactly what TopNetworkersGroup.com was created for – so that We – the members of the MLM Industry could create a Plan that others could Follow; that would work!

Multiple streams of MLM Income is not only possible, it’s what will Turn our industry from a Laughing Stock, to a Mutual Stock.

We can make this industry MORE appealing if Leaders will rise up and tell others which way to go!

We created a MLM System to give others our Plan for Successfully creating multiple streams of MLM income. You see….

Even though We Have that Plan; we still need the Right People.

We need Leaders who will go against the Odds, and who will go around and over the Obstacles.  We need leaders who are willing to go where No one in Network Marketing has gone before…

Are You That Leader??

The Student is Ready When the Teacher Notices Their Test

I wrote something a few minutes ago, inspired by that good ole’ saying … “When the student is ready the teacher will appear…”

I don’t know who said that – but it’s been quoted over the years; and has been so useful, and so true in my life. I was not always a good student; in fact I tell people all the time that I became a better student when I got into business than I ever was while I was in school.

— which I allude to in this short message; about the Bad student; and the Good Teacher;

I don’t care what company you’re in.

I’m looking for people who understand what I understand.

I’m not all that interested in the people who assume I don’t understand anything; and that they are here to teach me. Because they don’t know my teachers.

I’ve had some of the very best to ever do this….

When it comes to being a student; there aren’t too many like me….

I know how to be a bad student; because I spent MOST of my ‘formal school years’ being a horrible student; I spent more time chasing women, hitting parties, and getting my recreational on … than I did preparing for tests; or writing papers; I cheated on a LOT of tests…. (statue of limitations is up) — I guessed my way to a LOT of tests … and I don’t say any of that to brag.

That was super horrible student mode there.

So I know what a horrible student looks like when they show up to my Class.

My Classroom … is the system that was created to Educate and Train my Partners; like a good teacher does; I observe the class – I don’t waste my time arguing with students; I know what a bad student is gonna tell me “Teacher, I got this” …

The bad student, doesn’t understand the good teacher.

The good teacher isn’t threatened by the bad student; because it’s not the teachers job; the teachers job is to provide the lessons; to make sure the students have all the information; and have access to the answers; If the students aren’t asking the teacher questions; they better pass those tests …

Otherwise they better not blame the teacher …

Even though, that’s often what the bad student does….

————————–

When the student is ready, the teacher will notice their test score.

In Business there are several types of Tests…

Life is going to test that student; will the student quit or pay more attention to life? Other opportunities will test that student; will the student stay focused and pursue the goal? Does the student even know what the goal is? The relationship between the teacher and the student will be tested. When the teacher asks the student to do a task, will the student respect the teacher enough to complete it; knowing there is a lesson in the task?

Or will the student scoff off the assignment, thinking there isn’t much more the teacher can teach them?

When the student is ready, the student will recognize that teachers are all around; lessons are being taught; and all they really need to do is listen, learn, and apply.

Most teachers in business will tell the students that oftentimes the things we do will require repetition before we become really good at it; and more repetition to become great. Applying the knowledge is where the results come; Faith, without works is dead.

We (Myself and Others) put together a system that takes into mind what a network marketer truly needs. There is a lot of information out there, and while much of it is useful, so much of it is not really what a network marketer needs.

The only way for you to know for sure that this statement is true however, would be for you to sign up for our system; take our training courses (by watching the videos; taking copious notes) – and finally applying what WE are teaching.

Only then, can you see the results WE are promising to our ‘students’ – which refers to, the Students … who are ready. When the student is ready we’ll SEE Them applying our lessons; and we’ll SEE Them getting the results we are promising. When a student is not ready, or unsure of the teacher; the student will do what the student wants to do.

Unfortunately bad students will blame their teachers for their results.

It’s rare for a bad student to simply admit to being a bad student!

Afterall, if they had a good teacher, they’d MAKE them into a good student…..

Right?

…. absolutely WRONG.

Does the teacher Control you?

..(if you’re a bad student that is … are you being controlled by someone else?)

Who makes the decision to do the opposite of what the Teacher is teaching?

We have an old saying around here …

doallgetall

Do some of what we teach; get SOME of the results.

Do None of what we teach; get NONE of the results.

Do All of what we teach; get ALL of the results.

… So we’re going to put that on a T-Shirt for you; and allow you to sell it through our 1mlmsystem; via a pretty awesome FREE program; that will allow us to Teach you even more SKILLS; when it comes to branding yourself. That company is TeeSpring.com – which I advise you setting up an account FOR FREE – right now – and standing by, for it to show up in our Members area, for the One MLM System, to rule them all.

When the student is ready of course …

Because if you’re not ready; Our system will spit you out.

TopNetworkersGroup is a movement; and we are still seeking Leaders who have what it takes; to take the MLM industry into the 5th Wave of Network Marketing; only some of us will survive. Our Team, will lead the way. Will you be with us?

Year End Thoughts from TopNetworkersGroup

TopNetworkersGroup.com was created in August of 2010 – mostly as an Idea to make a ‘roadmap’ for my business partners at the time to follow, and teach to others. I wanted us to be able to grow a massive network marketing organization, that makes money from multiple places; not just one. I didn’t know what kind of journey I was in for, but I have to tell you that I’m glad I made the decision to start. It’s been an amazing journey, and the future is brighter now than ever before.

When I started TopNetworkersGroup it was on the heels of a decision to leave the team I had worked with for all of my MLM Industry career. I never really had the greatest experiences working with them but I can say that there were more positives than negatives. In fact, having great teachers helped me manage my perceptions. I took the negatives and looked for the positives within them. I found so many – and they’re all an integral part of what TopnetworkersGroup is about to this day.

The Very Core Idea of TopNetworkersGroup is respect.

After respect, is loyalty – not to a company – to a product or a service; but to one another; To The Team; To the Network. These two core principles are the guiding forces of our philosophy – that … It’s About The Team, Not the Company.

I’ve always felt, that when you and I have multiple streams of income tied to one company – what we really have is One stream of income. An MLM company with a diversified product/service line is not enough for you and I to achieve absolute financial freedom in what is currently the 5th Wave of the MLM Industry.

Let me slow down a moment for you to understand what the 5th Wave is – in my early days of my career in MLM I read books About MLM. This knowledge of my field has always given me a distinct advantage over other marketers. It has also caused several of them to be somewhat jealous.  Sadly where I thought my partners would be inspired by my knowledge, many felt threatened.  More negative experiences like these, helped reveal deeper issues within the MLM Industry, that bring me to another Core aspect of our Philosophy. Education.

I figure if I am on the same educational plane with my business partners, if we are all speaking the same language and have the same understanding of our profession, together We can accomplish things that other networks have not. We can accomplish goals that other network marketers, will never seek to achieve – goals many of them will believe are unreachable – a belief that stems from the very lack of education I encountered coming up in this industry. This lack of education has gotten worse in today’s age, where Opportunity is abundant and absolutely everywhere. Meanwhile, actual quality training is not.

Education in MLM – is the Training I’m speaking about. This is a skillset. You will always need a system that will train (educate) you and your business partners; and their business partners, and their business partners. This is the true purpose of National Conventions that most MLM Companies hold, 3-4 times per year. This gives the entire company a chance to come and get trained (educated) by the very people who are Leading the company. During the year, most of these companies also host special events for the top leadership ranks, and top producers.

This allows the Top Leaders to get personally trained by the people who are Leading the company, creating a unified message. This is important to every single company, because there is no other way to ensure duplication. There is a saying in MLM; it does not matter what works, what matters is what can be duplicated. The essence of MLM is found in it’s simplicity, that anyone can do it. You and I refer things to people every single day. We just don’t get paid for doing it. Unless you’re part of a MLM company and you are referring people to products that also provide you with a % of what those referrals spend.

It gets even better as others can also turn around and refer people; and Both of you earn a % from those sales. Several MLM companies pay a % out on several levels, or generations of referrals. I tell Sam, and he tells David, and David tells John. John Tells Sue, and she tells Robin. All of them go out and gather a handful of customers. And because I told Sam, I am going to get a % of it all. It’s a beautiful Business model, not only for me, but also for Sam – as he too is getting a % from all that production.

It’s a fair business model too. Sam can out earn me. Robin can earn more than Sam and I combined. It’s all about what each person does with their opportunity. TopNetworkersGroup recently released this training which explains how this is possible. So many people who have never been shown this before, believe that the people at the top of an MLM make all of the money. The truth is – you are at the top of your own company within a company; and what you do determines your success or your failure.

This saying of ‘your company’ within a company doesn’t always feel like it’s real; depending on the MLM company you are aligned with. This is one of the realities that comes with the 5th Wave I mentioned earlier. There are so many MLM companies out there and not all of them are alike. We started pointing several of these differences out in the very beginning of TopNetworkersGroup – and everything came together with our One MLM System to Teach, Train, and Educate our entire team.

With So many changes and so much that is new and still, so much that is old, like anything everyone of us could use some help. We began putting together ‘training areas’ all the way back in 2010 – here are a couple of screenshots below.

tng-training-cg tng-training-tba

Once again, these training sections were created to make sure that our business partners had everything they would need to be successful. It also gave my business partners and I a central location to get together and build our organization. Consider these ‘early, less sophisticated versions’ of our One MLM System; Both however, come from my training in this industry, starting with the very first company I joined.  This is where I learned how important it is, to create an environment where my people can win; giving them the support and training they need to succeed!

However, Training – like a good book, is only useful when the education is applied.

As we move forward into 2015, we are excited about what the next year holds in store. It will be a year where all of our ideas start to truly come into fruition. So much of what we have been doing, has been all part of a process. Things like this take time. We’re not like everybody else out there, and what we are doing is so unconventional. It’s taking time for our idea to really soak in, especially with leaders who are resistant to change.

However the turmoil of the MLM Industry continues; companies continue to go out of business. Company owners continue to sell their companies to Other companies. MLM organizations have a tough time staying together – as people jockey to be ‘first’ in pre-launch opportunities promising to be the next BIG thing. Everyone believes the people at the top make all the money, so naturally this is why they are not making money now. They got in too late.

So they figure ‘getting in early’ is the answer.

Over the years I’ve seen so many people get in early with a company that goes under pretty early. Those leaders end up floating around from one opportunity to the next after that happens. Many fade out completely. This is a tough industry to be in, when you’re loyal to a company, that is not loyal to you. The owner of that MLM company did not create the opportunity for you to get rich. They created it, to sell a product or a service that they came up with. They need customers for it. That’s where you and I come in.

If (and when) that company gets bought out; the other company may not need their MLM customer acquisition sales force anymore. I’ve seen so many people lose their incomes overnight. If no one is telling you this, then how are you going to actually be prepared for it when it happens to you?

Enter, TopNetworkersGroup – and everything that has unfolded for us so far. Catch up on everything we will do for you – by watching our 2 Year Anniversary 1mlmsystem Overview – right now! This takes you on a short journey from where we have been for the past couple of years with our Training System for our team; and also where We are going.

After Two years, I am here to report – that TopNetworkersGroup will change MLM forever, starting in 2015. Every single development has led up to this moment.  For those who have expected us to be a large organization by now, they simply have not been paying attention. Many people talk without knowledge; this never stops people from voicing their ideas. It never matters if those ideas are accurate, these days, most people just like to hear themselves talk. That’s not the case with me, even though I do put out several videos. I do it because I have to do it. But I am looking forward to the day where I am able to take a back seat, and allow the Leadership Team of TopNetworkersGroup to take the helm; to teach, train and educate the entire organization.

That day is soon approaching. The day of Network Marketers making Professional Money is soon approaching. The day of seeing a higher % of people making money – by following a systematic approach, is soon approaching. I am glad to have played a role in it. I hope you will look back on your role and be proud of where you stood. You will either be part of what we do, or you will wish you had been part of it.

I recently watched a documentary on The Rise of Amazon. It’s pretty inspirational, because like Amazon, TopNetworkersGroup is seeking to do something revolutionary. We too, are seeking to change the world. Thankfully we’ve had the ‘time’ to develop ourselves, our ideas, and our system.  Thankfully we’ve had time to sort for leaders – and we have figured out, what so many are yet to. That team must be the focus; never the company. That fundamentals matter, and can be duplicated. That Together, we can do so much more than ‘just’ get customers for others; We can get customers for our selves…

The future is bright – I’m ready for the New Year; I hope you are too!
