Crazygood Work-a-rounds

Discussing Work-arounds for Crazygood
– by Al King, CEO and Founder of TopNetworkersgroup

Crazygood is a private social network that rolled out in November of 2010. It was a very promising website at the time, due to it’s affordable cost and lucrative compensation plan. Lots of people signed up during the first six months, and then things started to unravel.

Crazygood Community Issues

Crazygood CommunityThere’s a general rule on Facebook, perhaps the most popular social network on the planet. That rule is, never post links on other people’s pages. Several of the early members joining crazygood were violating this Rule; perhaps because Crazygood isn’t Facebook. I witnessed a few wall arguments, but other than that the community was always positive…

That wasn’t an issue – however the SPEED of the website always was.

Crazygood Slowness, and Newbie Attitudes.

The low cost of entry combined with the slow speed of the website caused a lot of the people who joined crazygood to quit just as fast as they signed up. After Six months Crazygood had a lot of Dead accounts; and for the next 6 months I watched more and more people slowly participate less and less.

My career in the MLM/affiliate world didn’t begin in 2010 however.

I started out in ACN, in 1998. We learned then, that when you find an Opportunity, in order to build an Organization you must first Create an Environment for your team to Win In.

We did that, by creating several Tools to help our Team Market the Opportunity, Capture Leads, and find Real business partners to make money with in Crazygood, and beyond.

In my eyes, Crazygood was never the opportunity to retire on; but it Did provide a lucrative earning potential for anyone willing to put in the work. We created a Version of Crazygood’s Earning Worsheet – To Show you The money.

What Else We’ve done ….

We built an entire Training Website to provide support, and Education so that a Newbie could learn HOW to make money.

Most of our team members chose not to use that website; but what else is new in network marketing?  In 1998 people would join my company, spend $499 and skip out on Coming to Training Events to Learn how to make money in the business they just signed up for. Even after struggling, several of the people would refuse any education. The idea that perhaps they needed more skill escaped many of them in 1998, all the way up through 2004, before I walked away from ACN, and began building websites for small businesses.

However the training and support office is still here, and exists as a Work-a-round for Crazygood; since it’s a bare bones affiliate program with literally no training or support for their affiliates. Depending on ones attitude, this can be seen as a bad thing – OR as a tremendous Opportunity.

Me and my business partners decided to be Leaders; and we created even more tools; Including the Crazygood Sales Funnel showing people how they can “Turn $10 into $10,000 per month” – and then rolled out a LIVE OFFICE Where we talk with Members of our team, and their guests – LIVE – using modern technology (the internet) – and lastly, in December of 2012, TopNetworkersGroup unleased the One MLM System to Rule them all – which initially used Crazygood as a Required Program to sign up for, to use our system; but is now one of 2 options, on our $10 Level, that Free members of our team can use to start Earning Money, with the network they build while using our mlm system.

To THIS day, Crazygood has Continued to Pay me, month after month.

And while I have not made a LOT of money, I can proudly say I’ve been In profit for all 3 years of my involvement with this company. I will even be releasing a funnel soon, that will SHOW YOU the Paypal Proofs; something I never like doing – but am only doing it to prove a point; that if you’re really Hungry to make money, you CAN make money here; you simply need to be willing to Commit to something so that others will follow you; Commit to a team that will work with you, and teach you the things you Do not know – You must leave your EGO at the door, because the truth is – Making money With Crazygood is no Different from Making Money with MCA, Solavei, iLA, ACN, Amway, or Any Other Opportunity in the MLM Industry.

The Mechanics, Fundamentals, Techniques, …. the Skillset – whatever you want to call it; it’s all the same. The ones who learn it only struggle to find people that can ‘afford’ the business they are offering. That’s what drew me to the Crazygood opportunity – I saw a way to help people earn money, and build a network – a core value of TopNetworkersGroup today. I have some more ‘specific’ Crazygood Work-a-rounds to share with you – because by no means is this a Perfect Website.

I mentioned the slowness, and lack of real community rules in place – no training or support; no marketing materials – they Recently created a Overview Video in just the past 4-5 months; that is a real upgrade; but thankfully We put several tools in place to fill in the gaps, where Crazygood was missing them.

If you happened to Join Crazygood and worked with any other team, then you did not have access to these tools. I am old school and am 100% against Stealing people from others; So I recommend you Reactivate your OLD membership – and then simply use our 1mlmsystem to Work with our team, Get Training, and access to the Tools WE provide for members of our team.

Read MORE from us – helpful information to put more money into your pocket – IF you take advantage of what we are sharing. When it comes to Opportunity, it is a window – it will close. Some will benefit from the window while it’s open. Others will look for reasons why they couldn’t benefit. We’re not looking to work with those people. We’re looking for winners. We are looking for problem solvers, and solution seekers.

Business Training : How Your Ego Blocks Your Success

EGO is the first obstacle in the road to success. Most people bring a huge one into a MLM company or opportunity. They bring the successes of their past, or success they had in a different company To the new one; and expect a red carpet welcome, with rose petals to walk on. I’m sure they want the Paparazzi there too but, hey they’ll understand if you don’t have that set up right away.

These people never make money in Network Marketing (MLM) – they have no real business training.

They have never learned the importance of teamwork.

teamwork

They do not understand network marketing because if they did, they would already know that only their Sponsor has a financial incentive in helping them make money.

Most struggling networkers, never grasp this simple concept.

Today I had an encounter with one who joined my levelonenetwork about 35 days ago. She was not able to sponsor anyone and 15 days later, joined a coffee opportunity; then of course – tried to pitch me on signing up for it. I got a firsthand look at her horrible approach to sponsoring people.

After 15 more days of trying to pitch me the new coffee deal; She tells me she has a LevelOne Sign up coming in; finally – Then … 10 days later; she tells me she Did Not Know The Cost was Monthly and that she could not afford it; because she Just Joined, another Opportunity; that’s $100 per month; And another business that’s $50/mo.

This is what all of these struggling networkers are doing.

If You are doing this; You MUST Stop today.

Business Training on Mastery – Featuring Tony Robbins

I Just watched one of the best “Tony talks” I’ve ever seen – If you’re in search of solid business training, look no further than Tony Robbins. Yes a lot of what Tony teaches has to do with being in the right mind state – That’s SO important in business.

Then there’s everything else. 90% of what we do in business is mental but the other 10% separates those of us with positive thinking, from those of us with positive cash flow.

Enter, one of the very Best Business Training Talks I’ve ever seen featuring Tony Robbins – It’s from his “Business Mastery” course; and he appears to be talking in Australia – The biggest nugget I picked up is his quote from Something Peter Drucker said about success in business.

These TWO principles he mentions really struck a chord with me.

When I look at the biggest difference between Levelonenetwork and Empowernetwork – really it’s how EN has been marketed; That’s really the biggest reason it’s done so well – and while LevelOneNetwork may be better at training people how to get ranked; and pull in traffic – at this current moment, EN is being marketed better.

Does that make EN Better?

Some would say yes – but it’s like the McDonalds example that Tony uses in this video. The Marketing makes McDonalds one of the most successful businesses in the world; Not their product – other franchises may make better burgers and fries; but if they can’t market them as well as McDonalds, they’ll continue to trail McDonalds, rather than surpass them.

So when I examine TopNetworkersGroup, and our 1mlmsystem, what’s really caused us to have sort of a log jam in production? Simple – Lack of marketers, marketing our system.

I’m currently in the process of looking for new business partners. My current partner has done as much as he can do, but it’s the time to bring in others who are more willing to be coached, and shown how to get results in business; My marketing skills are decent; however if I team up with 2-3 others who are marketing the same way I am; Together all of our marketing efforts will get Faster results; The team really does achieve more.

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.
