Do you have the passion

How do you feel when you wake up in the morning?  What is the first thing you think about?  If you are going to succeed in this highly competitive world of network marketing I can tell you how you should be feeling. First should be gratitude that you are alive.  Pretty soon after that, should be ‘How successful is today going to be and what can I do to make it more successful’.

I have to admit that I am NOT a morning person. I’m a night owl and I struggle to be out of bed when most people are thinking about elevenses.  However, when they are all tucked up in bed, I’m still online, sending mails, and searching for new contacts.

A few days ago, I was watching TV and saw someone who was enjoying some success at last, after years of hard work and I wrote about him over on IBO Toolbox.  Here is an excerpt of what I said.

I learned a lesson yesterday in what can happen if you never lose sight of a goal. What most network marketers want is success and everything that comes with it. We want to see the results of our hard work in our bank balances and in our email – notifications every day about new people joining our businesses or enquiring about them.

Nuts and Bolts of Listbuilding

If you have read other articles about Contact List Builder here or elsewhere you may know that it comprises a set of programs that together make up a toolset for internet marketers.

Given that your primary objective is to bring new people to your business AND that doing that means finding leads, what are these basic tools and how are they used?

Did your autoresponder let you down?

A lot of people have had recent issues with autoresponders, in particular with the industry leader Aweber. I was clicking on safelist mail links and getting errors and 404s all over the place.  Not good for me or the advertiser.

What I heard was that they had a DDOS attack. So why should that worry you?    Continue reading

Why I do what I do how I do it!

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

Starting out, here is some info about the product and company I advertise and why you might not think that it was my primary business.

BodyByVi is a weightloss product range marketed by a company called Visalus and I decided to start promoting it after using it successfully for a few months.

Many marketers get so enthused about their main product that they concentrate their advertising on it exclusively and don’t even give a prospective customer an opportunity to express more interest via a form included in the ad. I confess to being absolutely guilty of making this mistake in the past, and have now radically changed the type of primary advertising that I do.

The type of ad I now use is called a squeeze page or lead capture page and you absolutely HAVE to get familiar with this format and know how to create one and  store the information, because it is fundamental to listbuilding.

However, although BodyByVi give me a capture page, I’m actually not using it – this is why. There are so many BodyByVi pages out there, that someone searching on Google is very unlikely to hit mine first. Also, I cannot customize it to feed directly into my GVO autoresponder or set up personalized follow up messages. 

I’ve found that I can attract many MORE visitors to my product by offering to help my visitors build THEIR business.  The marketing system I invite them to use is Contact List Builder and that is what I advertise.

The reason CLB is so very good is that the steps that you need to take to make it work are very clearly documented and support is very easy to get.  You can set the basic system up in a couple of hours – yes even if you are a non techie! Interested visitors to my CLB ads enter their name and email on a simple form embedded in the ad and hey presto –

Now I can send them information about my BodyByVi product as well as Contact List Builder. As just about everyone knows someone in their family or friends who is trying to lose weight, I get potentially more than one visitor to my product site because with a little nudge from me, my initial contact will pass on the info.
