Link, share, curate, consolidate

Most people with a few years’ experience in network marketing will find themselves creating a presence online in a number of different ways. For instance, I have this blog, my personal Facebook account PLUS a business page, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ an IBO Toolbox account, a page on about.me and a LinkedIn account.

I already often curate and share content between the blog and IBO by re-purposing what I write in one place, for the other. This article is a good example.

Yesterday I wrote a new PR over on IBO about the wisdom of buying gold as a savings product due to the jitteriness of world financial markets. This is a curated quote and link and I hope you will go and read it – but after you read the rest of my post here!

The threat is that the value of your savings in traditional holdings like bank deposits and stocks and shares (and linked securities like UK ISAs) is going to decline very suddenly and very seriously. If you are looking at retirement in the next year or two, then this could be of very great concern to you. Your projected retirement income could be slashed and you could be looking at a future with not enough money to last your lifetime.

Wake up, or Lose Out, IBOSocial PR

I don’t want to copy it word for word over here and Google won’t like it if I do.
As a method of creating  your brand, linking your online places together in this way can really pay dividends and improve your business image.

Other ways I can draw attention to my PR/post:

  • Tweet about it
  • Create a Pinterest pin that links to it
  • Post about it on Google+
  • Update your Facebook status with a link to it
  • Use the same tags/keywords across all your references

People are more likely to remember you and trust you if your name keeps popping into their online experience – and they will also remember why you are online and what you are promoting,  to the extent it is very likely that they will subscribe to an offer or visit an affiliate site – exactly what you are aiming for.

Golden gifts for golden occasions

In an earlier post on this blog here I talked about joining Karatbars as a business. I now want to show you how you can buy the Karatbars gold products as gifts for your friends and family as a customer, and to show you some examples of the lovely gold cards that you can buy for your special occasions.

A change of direction

Since I joined Contact List Builder and became an active member, I have been promoting BodyByVi health and diet products as my ‘primary’ business.  I have taken the decision to change this to Karatbars.

BBV still make good products and I still use them. However, I have decided that Karatbars is a more attractive proposition with a potentially much wider audience. A few days ago, I notified everyone on my CLB mailing list of the change, and I have to  say that I had a good result.

Several people who hadn’t been active in my CLB line contacted me to ask about it and are keen to join when they can. I hope to be seeing some early commissions in there.

Find out more from this video, then read on to find out how you can join.

Do cultural differences affect the way you do business?

I’m a Brit OK?  We British have a reputation for being reserved in our dealings with other people.  Maybe that’s wrong and maybe it’s right but I feel that in my business and in my personal life, there are lines not to cross and places I should not go when talking to other people.

Recently that led to coming smack up against a business colleague who evidently thinks that I am being negative and something of a wimp and because of that I’m losing out on potential business. I have to disagree and this blog post is about the two sides of that argument.
