Facebook Down, Instagram WhatsApp Too; DDos Attack

Today Facebook and it’s family of social media platforms are down; Facebook Down, Instagram Down, WhatsApp is down too. The outages apparently the result of a DDos Attack. Not too long ago I cut a video that you can see below, about why Facebook Sucks for Network Marketers. I feel that too many people in network marketing rely on this platform ‘only’, and tune out other options to use, while building. Along with the attraction to automation, networkers are losing the much needed human touch.

Plus with Facebook Down, and others you see how fragile your business can be.

“if”, this is how you’re building your business.  That facebook “Live” you were using isn’t going out to most of your audience today. The IG TV show you put together to launch your business, also failed you today. A while back, sites using facebook as a way for members to login, were unable to serve their customer bases. (Because users could not log in.)

Throughout the years, it’s grown too popular and far too powerful. I no longer use their ‘comment section’, so that our site is not going to go down, when Facebook is.

With Facebook down, we get lessons on ‘all your eggs in one basket’. This is an argument for diversity, and decentralization. more than likely Facebook, IG and WhatsApp will recover from this DDos Attack. Knowing these can happen at any time however, should make you, think more deeply about your approach to building.

Use TheConversionPros to build lead capture pages, landing pages, and use their auto responders to Market ‘directly’ to your leads through email.  Email marketing is a lost art. I guess the argument is, people don’t read their emails anymore.  It’s not a lie though.

Readers are leaders and frankly, the industry is missing Leaders … who Read ….

We used to recommend ‘building through our 1mlmsystem Live Office’, but now we have “The Secret Office”.  All part of The Rich Man’s Plan from TNG, it is a similar concept. When building, you and I have to get prospects ‘out’ of environments with distractions. Back in the day that meant going to a hotel conference room, or ballroom meeting. Pulling people out of environments that distract them, help you build better teams. Teams of people who will read email they see, from you.

While facebook down trends, and jokes are made on twitter, lessons await to teach the Student who is Ready.

This user isn’t joking, they’re… very frustrated.

Again, this is what happens when people don’t spread themselves out. Again, I’m the guy who blamed ‘the people’ when Crazygood went out of business. I said people using it, did not place value on using the network. They all kept putting value on Facebook. That ‘same energy’ has gone into instagram, and that’s why facebook bought them. When TSU rolled out, the same thing happened again.  Folks didn’t use it ‘like they used’ facebook.  Too many people treated it like something different, and that’s why it went out of business.

Home Business Education Matters Right Now

There is almost too much information available in the internet driven information age. Home business education matters more now than ever before. You see, the majority of society is taught to be an employee. That is how it’s been set up. We are absolutely born into The Matrix, and need to Free our Minds from the ‘digital prison’ we are in.

This prison fills us with myths, and mental limitations. When people are introduced to network marketing the mental obstacles are the toughest to overcome.

“I don’t like Selling” is a common rejection you’ll hear in this line of work.

It’s important to be okay with that, and to listen. People always tell you what you need to know. Your job as a network marketer is to listen and learn, to sort not sell. Most people have no home business education and, think they have to talk folks into stuff. That does not work. It only alienates a person and makes them run away from you.

Don’t guilt trip anyone into being your business partner, instead …. (sign up for Training to find out what we recommend!)

Knowing how to turn a NO into a quality YES that’s actually beneficial to you is only going to help you meet your financial goals. It’s also going to show that you value that person, when you respect their No, but instead make them feel like they’re still helping you. That’s one of many ‘skills’ taught to my Team inside of our 1 MLM System.

Let’s say for some reason you don’t want to be in business with me. That’s fine with me. TopNetworkersGroup has always thought about the BIGGER Picture.

So, you can and should also visit our home business education website, where you can be ‘part’ of our Special Business Education Community.

You’re saying, to all who visit that you also, believe in home business education.

You’re not a spammer with no skills who’s just going through the numbers are you?

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.
