Four Steps to Maximize Productivity and Resourcefulness When Dealing with Financial Stress and Worry

Stress and worry can seriously impact your business…

Because it’s extremely difficult to make effective decisions when you’re emotionally exhausted.

This comes up over and over again, especially when people are dealing with the financial risks inherent in advertising.

Case in point: I keep seeing this in our private Facebook group, especially with the brand new members.

They make frantic posts—in utter desperation mode—thinking they’re asking for help, but in reality they’re just emotionally lashing out, without providing any contextual information (which would allow us to actually help them solve their problems).

This, as you might have guessed, doesn’t help anyone.

So how do you deal with the stress of your financial situation?

How do you stay productive in the face of adversity?And how to you effectively ask for help?

These are skills you’ve got to develop if you want to succeed in business.

And the following 4 steps will help.

1. Bring yourself to a state of calm

First, you need to be in a positive state; or at least calm.

Because you can’t even think straight when you’re emotionally negative.

When you’re negative, you don’t have focus or clarity, so you can’t ask effective questions or make sound decisions.

You can’t have breakthroughs when you’re in a negative emotional state.

Returning to the example above…

Frustrated advertisers in our Facebook group, who are lashing out in a negative emotional state, often post this kind of comment…

“I don’t know what’s going on! My ads aren’t working!”

And here’s the thing…

This statement doesn’t provide any information or data to actually help them.

Basically, this type of post just lets the world know they’re struggling emotionally.

And why would someone do that?

Well, the answer is simple…

It’s because they aren’t even thinking, because they honestly can’t in that agitated state of mind.

Here’s the thing, though…

We have to train ourselves as entrepreneurs to deal with emotional stress

I’m sure many of you can relate to feeling this way.It’s common when we get started in business, because it’s a brand new experience.

We’re wide-eyed and overwhelmed, and that leads to a lot of negative emotions and reactions.

We’re scared because we don’t know what the heck we’re doing!

And that’s nothing to be ashamed of; it happens to everyone at first.

You know, it’s that whole “getting outside your comfort zone” thing.

But the bottom line is that when you’re in a negative state and frantically asking for help, you unfortunately won’t be able to get help you need.

Because if you want help, first you need to…

2. Ask for help in a clear, concise way

Say one of our team members sees the post of someone anxiously asking for help, who’s saying their “ads aren’t working.”

But there’s no concrete information provided.

Well, we then have to reply and say…

“Calm down. Please provide the information we need to know in order to help you.”

Which leads to a lengthy back-and-forth exchange, rather than doing a single post and immediately getting the help they need.

Instead it’s two or three posts later with numerous ongoing comments required.

This is not productive in any way!

We’re willing to work with you, of course, but there’s no need to make our mentors work harder than necessary.

Because in order to receive help, you have to provide the specific information (actual data) that allows the people in our community to help you.

And in order to ask for help effectively, you need to be in a state where you can actually think.

The best way to calm your emotions?

Hands down is through some sort of meditation.Now, I’m not an ‘esoteric’ guy, but I do see the value of meditation.

Meditation can help calm you down and bring you back into a positive state.

There are apps that you can download for your phone that provide a easy guided meditation.

Another option is prayer, if you’re religious.

Prayer is a great way to meditate.

You can check out my Prayers and Affirmations. Here is the link to the first of a series of blog posts.

But there’s a specific way to pray…

Most people pray in a way that is, truth be told, not effective.

Because they’re just asking God for stuff.

Instead, it’s much more helpful to pray for the things you’re grateful for.

Pray for the things that are going right in your life!

Pray for the people in your life and just be thankful in your prayer that they’re in your life.

Be grateful for what you have.

Focus on things that are positive

Now, if you’re not religious, and that’s not resonating with you, Tony Robbins has a great gratitude meditation.

It’s called “The Guided Reflection” or the “Emotional Flood” exercise.

You can go to YouTube right now and search for “Tony Robbins gratitude meditation,” and he’ll take you through the process.

In this exercise you go from a negative state, a state of internal conflict, to a state of gratitude and joy.

It brings you back to a point where you can actually think and focus.

This is so important, and it reminds me of something I’ve taught before called…

“Walking with Death”

It’s the ability Special Forces use to remain calm in a state of heightened pressure.

I mean situations where bullets are flying and people are dying.

How do you maintain your composure in that environment?

What soldiers have trained to do, especially in the Special Forces, is to already accept the fact that they might die.

They’ve accepted, and made peace with that idea, and then they go into battle.

If you’re not afraid to die then you’re not afraid, period.

Not to say that it’s as easy as that, of course, but it’s an advanced way of being able to deal with stress.

Most of us aren’t ready to deal with that level of stress.

A more attainable version would be simply bringing yourself into a state of calm (you know, forgetting about mortality for the time being).

So even if things aren’t going right, you’re able to physically feel calm.

To do this, it’s essential that you…

3. Separate your financial stress from the work at hand

You may be asking…

“How do I separate from stress? Especially if I have financial issues, or my spouse is negative, or I hate my job? How do I separate from those things?”

Well, you have to emotionally set those things aside and say…

“Okay, that’s over here. I’ll deal with that later. I have work to do.”

If you’re not able to focus for one or two hours, then you’re not going to be productive, and you won’t get the results you need.

When I was going through my journey in the beginning, I had an insane amount of financial stress.

I was deep in debt—sixty thousand dollars in debt

I was going through a foreclosure of my home.

And I was living at home and almost lost my mom’s house, as well, because I was also responsible for her mortgage.

Now even though that’s all going on, I still had to be able to mentally set that aside and say…

“Okay, I need to focus.”

Luckily, I cultivated the ability to focus on the things I needed to do.

And a big part of this equation is being able to…

4. Believe you’re going to succeed

I never doubted myself.

I never doubted that I was going to succeed and breakthrough in this business.

And honestly, I believed that as much as I believed in God or anything spiritual in my life.

I believed with absolute certainty.

Not only are you going to need to find a way to remain calm, and emotionally separate yourself from the stuff that’s not great in your life…

You must find the unshakable belief that you can do this

Because without that belief it’s going to be hard, even while being in a state of calm, for you to focus.

And hey, maybe your belief level is not quite there yet.

That’s okay.

A simple thing to do is believe in something you’re going to be doing in the future, which will be useful to you.

Let’s say an ad campaign that generates leads, for instance.

Believe, at least, that you can actually launch that campaign.

Develop the belief that you can at least do that.

Develop the belief that you’re going to generate that first commission, that first sale, or speak to that first prospect.

Believe you can accomplish the next step!

Maybe you’re not in a place where you can believe that you’re going to be a multi-millionaire.

That’s okay.

And maybe that’s not even your goal.

Maybe you have other goals that are more important to you—that’s fine.

But at least believe you can achieve the next level of success.

Whatever that looks like for you.

When you’re bringing yourself to the state of calm, the pressure of having to make a bunch money can be too much.

So the only thing you have to worry about is doing enough to get to that next level of success.

Ray Higdon mentioned something to me, which has to do with how you see yourself now.

He says…

“What’s in your bank account or what’s in your financial books, that reflects a past-version of you, or just reflects what’s in the books. It doesn’t reflect who you are.”

If you can believe that, then you can accomplish some pretty amazing things.

It’s another way to bring yourself to a state of calm, so you can get the job done, and do the things you need to do.

Remember, step one is to do whatever is necessary to…

Bring yourself to a state of calm

I know exercise and martial arts were part of the equation for me.

You need to set aside some time just for you—where you can forget everything else in the world.

If you don’t have a lot of time then simple meditation exercises can help.

Find out what works for you!

Again, you must be able to:

  • Bring yourself to a state of calm
  • Ask for help in a clear, concise way
  • Set your problems aside and focus on being productive
  • Believe that you’re going to succeed with your next level of success

By following these steps…

You can put your stress aside and be more productive

Now, if you’re ready to take some of the stress, anxiety, and worry out of advertising by focusing on exactly the steps you need to succeed (and none you don’t), then I highly recommend signing up for my free online recruiting bootcamp.

You’ll learn the online business-building strategies I use to passively generate 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business-builders into my business each month.

These are the exact tactics I’ve used to create a world-wide brand and over 14 million dollars in revenue.

I can’t promise the same results for you, because every situation and person is different.

But if you are committed to taking action, I know this could possibly be the thing that helps you have a breakthrough in your business.

How to Optimize Your Schedule for Maximum Profitability

Ever feel paralyzed by your to-do list?

Like there’s never enough time in the day to make any real progress in your business?

Listen, this is a challenge familiar to all entrepreneurs.

When I spotted this blog by my mentor and master marketer, Ferny Ceballos, I decided to share it with you. Here is the rest of the blog.Ferny and Connie

After all, when you’re first starting out and wearing all the hats, it’s easy to get bogged down as you juggle every…single…thing that needs to be accomplished—day in, day out.

However, there are certain “levers” you can pull to get maximum return on your effort.

And if you focus on what I call “Results-Driven Tasks,” you’ll find you can optimize your schedule to make more money, without working any harder.

Basically…

It all starts with one simple table

So here’s what you need to do…

Create a table with the following three columns:

  1. Results-Driven Tasks
  2. Preparation Tasks
  3. Distraction Tasks

We’ll get into the specifics of how to assign the items on your to-do list to these categories shortly.

First I want you to know how you’ll be divvying up your time on a daily basis.

  • 75% of your time will be spent doing Results-Driven Tasks
  • 20% will be spent on Preparation Tasks
  • And the final 5% is for Distraction Tasks

Now let’s dive into each of these categories so you can more effectively plan the time you’re dedicating to your business.

First and foremost, I actually want to work backwards, starting with…

So the column on the far right is Distraction Tasks, which should constitute around 5% of your time.

These, as you probably guessed, are the tasks that are not very productive.

They don’t lead to you making money in any way, shape, or form, and they don’t have anything to do with your business.

However, you should schedule your Distraction Tasks, because they are inevitable.

Distraction Tasks might include…

  • Cleaning house
  • Checking Facebook
  • Watching TV
  • Attending to your kids
  • Watching YouTube
  • Preparing dinner
  • Answering the phone
  • Reading a book

When you create these columns, you actually want to write out all the possible things that can distract you.

And be ready to put those things on your schedule, because at least some of these things are actually meaningful to you.

Obviously kids are meaningful, right?

But spending time with your children is not something that contributes to the success of your business, so it falls under the category of Distraction Tasks.

The next column includes more important activities…

Preparation Tasks are activities that help you get ready for producing revenue, but don’t directly produce revenue themselves.

These should clock in at around 20% of your time, and are a little trickier to define.

So here are a few examples:

  • Writing copy for an ad
  • Writing an email
  • Creating an ad image
  • Creating a thank-you page
  • Writing down goals
  • Researching content
  • Shooting a video
  • Writing a blog
  • Learning a new automation tool
  • Creating a sales funnel (since you’re still not directly producing a result)

Again, these are necessary and productive activities, but they don’t directly produce revenue.

For instance, every morning I spend at least a half-hour of preparation to outline what I’m going to cover on our Daily Dose of Awesome.

And I can easily get caught up in planning, so it’s important to stick to a strict execution schedule.

Now, on to the most important activities…

Results-Driven Tasks directly leads to you producing a result in your business, such as generating revenue.

And you should dedicate 75% of your time to these activities.

Importantly, Results-Driven Tasks fall under three subcategories:

  • a.) Building an audience
  • b.) Engaging an audience
  • c.) Selling to an audience

So, what are some examples of these?

Audience Building are activities with the purpose of creating an audience.

These activities include…

  • Anytime you’re advertising to a cold audience
  • Running a Likes campaign
  • Using Facebook Live to build an audience that you can re-target later
  • Driving traffic to a capture page

Audience building activities are necessary to constantly have a steady stream of new prospects coming into your business.

Audience Engagement are activities designed to deliver value to an audience.

Building an audience and engaging an audience are similar in execution, yet you have to do both.

For instance, while a Facebook Live can build an audience (as discussed above), it also engages that audience, because obviously you’re interacting with your viewers.

Similarly, when building an email list, you’re driving traffic to a capture page, which is technically building an audience, but you’re also engaging them in the process.

So some of these distinctions aren’t perfectly clean and dry.

So what could you be doing?

  • Running engagement ads
  • Syndicating blog posts
  • Broadcasting a Facebook Live
  • Posting images, videos
  • Asking your audience questions
  • Creating polls

Prospecting can either fall under building an audience, engaging an audience, and also monetizing an audience—which is what we’re going to discuss next…

Audience Monetization is the final and most important activity.

What’s an example of you selling to an audience?

The biggest one is connecting with people who have already bought from you, following up with them, and pointing them toward another buying decision.

This allows you to lead someone from being a customer to a member of your business, for instance.

Again, these distinctions aren’t perfectly cut and dry.

Calling your leads is selling to the audience, but it’s also engaging your audience too, because you initially have to engage them over the phone before you sell to them.

What are some other examples of selling to an audience?

  • Posting directly about a product
  • Facebook Live
  • CTAs on a video ad
  • Video chats with prospects
  • Hosting a webinar
  • Consulting calls
  • Calling leads
  • Emailing your list
  • Setting up a broadcast
  • Doing a network marketing presentation

Also, running Facebook ad campaigns, if the ad is specifically geared toward moving people towards a purchase.

As you might have noticed…

Facebook ads can build an audience, engage an audience, and they can also sell to an audience.

Thus, they are one of the most important activities you could schedule to do, because they lead so directly to a result.

And again, when you’re creating your schedule, you want to allocate 75% of your time to Results-Driven Tasks that either build an audience, engage an audience, or sell to an audience.

But what if you’re new?

Because when you’re new, and there’s so much to learn, preparation will be a big part of what you’re doing.

However, don’t let that stop you from taking action.

Because Preparation Tasks don’t directly influence your income.

They’re important, yes; they’re part of what you need to be doing, but when you allocate your time, you might be allocating your time backwards.

Many people allocate a whole lot of time for training, and too little time for implementation.

So you should prioritize anything that teaches you how to take action.

For instance, if you’re a member of Elite Marketing Pro, we take you through our curriculum, and each of the training modules has an action you can take.

So make sure you prioritize taking those actions!

Don’t give yourself an out and tell yourself, “Well no, I need to go do this other thing over here before I can do that.”

Take the action!

I’d rather have you launch an ad campaign that completely flops, but gives you the experience of running an ad for the first time, getting familiar with the ads manager, and seeing how it works.

Just the fact that you launched the ad was a victory, even if you didn’t know the ins and outs of every single part.

And here’s the deal:

You’re going to spend five bucks a day.

That’s your investment to learn the ads manager, how it works, all the intricacies, and all the things you find confusing.

And once you’ve done it a couple times, it’ll no longer be confusing, and that’s part of your growth.

The experience leads you towards a result.

So yes, beginners will be a little lopsided at the beginning.

But ultimately, as you learn more, there are going to be things you put in place to flip the script.

Then learning is only a part of what you’re doing, and Results-Driven Tasks are what you’re focusing on.

Quick note:

If you are currently doing anything in traditional network marketing that’s working for you, then continue to do those things the majority of the time.

Don’t replace activities that are actually producing income and results for you as you learn the online space.

Preparation Tasks should remain at 20% of your schedule, regardless.

Let’s summarize!

You should always categorize the things you’re doing on a consistent basis in your business.

So take your to-do list and divide your tasks into the following columns:

  • Results-Driven Tasks (75% of your time)
  • Preparation Tasks (20% of your time)
  • Distraction Tasks (5% of your time)

And when you create your schedule for the day—however much time you have—first make sure you prioritize the activities in the Results-Driven column, because those three subcategories:

  • Building an audience,
  • Engaging an audience, and
  • Selling to an audience,

…are what directly influence your income.

These distinctions will help you leverage your time much more profitably!

Say you’ve already been building and engaging an audience, then selling to that audience is what’s really going to move the needle from a money standpoint.

Now, if you’re ready to learn more about the specific Results-Driven Tasks I recommend filling your schedule with, then I highly recommend signing up for my free online recruiting bootcamp.

You’ll learn the online business-building strategies I use to passively generate 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business-builders into my business each month.

These are the exact activities I’ve used to create a world-wide brand and over 14 million dollars in revenue.

I can’t promise the same results for you, because every situation and person is different.

But if you are committed to taking action, I know this could possibly be the thing that helps you have a breakthrough in your business.

When you listen your friend listens too if you use Reflective Listening.

How did you feel the first time you sat down with a good friend to share your business and product?

How do you suppose they felt?

If you were like me there were a few butterflies. Maybe a lot!

And if you were nervous, I am guessing your friend felt it and wondered what in the world was happening.

She might have been thinking, “Oh no! Don’t tell me you’re doing one of those things!”

There is nothing like a case of nerves to derail all your plans. And you can forget the script some well-meaning up line gave you.

Trying to remember your script does not dispel nerves!

Even if you have perfectly memorized your script you nervously look for the right place to insert your opening line.

And then what do you do when your friend doesn’t stick to the script?

Would you like a better way to begin?

Try being fully present in the moment.

Enjoy the presence of your friend. Catch up on what is happening in her life.

And while you are doing that use a little reflective listening and mirroring.

Reflective listening allows your friendsReflective listening allows your friend to hear what he has said. It can be done using two techniques:

Restating: You repeat what your friend has said using their own words. Your tone of voice must be neutral and must not rise at the end of the statement or it will sound like you are questioning what she said.

Rephrasing: You take the most important part of what your friend says and repeat it using his own words.

Reflective listening will help you connect with your friend. So will another technique called mirroring.attractive-woman-applying-makeup-while-looking-at-the-mirror_rF1x9JETrj.jpg

Mirroring: You subtly mirror some of the actions of your friend. When she picks up her cup of coffee, you pick up yours. The Science of People has this article that will make you an expert at mirroring.

You should probably practice either reflective listening or mirroring. You might find trying both overwhelming. Plus, you want to see the effect of each one by itself.

Reflective listening is powerful. But you may doubt that something so simple could be powerful.

The best way to learn the power of reflective listening is to role play.

I remember role playing when I was acting the part of a reluctant friend who did not want to hear about network marketing. It went like this:

Me: I heard you have joined Jean in her business and I don’t want to talk about it.

My friend using reflective listening: You don’t want to talk about it. [This was delivered in a neutral tone. The voice didn’t rise at the end making it sound like a question. It truly reflected to me what I had said.]

Me [I was amazed to feel my defenses weaken with that one reflective listening statement. So my response was softer than I had planned.]: Not really. It’s just that we are a little short and we’re trying to save up so I can quit my job.

My friend resisted the urge to tell me that she could help with that; instead she reflected what I said: You want to quit your job.

Me: I am desperate to get out of that job. And we want to start a family.

My friend, has heard two different thoughts and gets to decide which is most important to me right now: You want to start a family.

Me: We have for a couple of years. But the job so drains me that I can’t imagine taking care of a baby.

My friend: You can’t imagine taking care of a baby.

Me: Not while working. I want to be a good mother. My mother went back to work and she wasn’t there for me. I would love to join you and Jean. But the timing is just terrible.

Remember, I was role playing and I had determined to be a hard sell. But even in role play the reflective listening so disarmed me that I found myself more agreeable to the idea of joining my friend in her business. [ This conversation only uses one of the Five Listening Skills. After you have learned the other four Listening Skills you won’t use Reflective Listening so much. Once is often all you need before moving forward with the other skills.]

At this point, my friend has many different options. She could start sharing how the business could work for me but she is smart enough to realize that I am still not ready. The timing may not be right. She values my friendship enough to continue the conversation with the other listening skills and see where I go with it. She has relinquished control of the conversation and I will feel free to be open with her.

From your experience, what would I do if my friend says something like, there are lots of couples building a business just so they can quit their job and be full-time parents at this point?

She could say that and maybe I might say yes. But most likely the conversation would end awkwardly.

Network marketing is a business of timing. You can ignore that and still experience success. But how many friends and family will you alienate.

Two important things to keep in mind:Use your friends own words

  • Use your friend’s own words.
  • Don’t let it sound like a question by letting your voice go up at the end of your statement.

By using your friend’s own words you are letting her hear what she said. Unbelievably, we are so bad at listening we don’t even listen to ourselves sometimes. Or we overstate what we are thinking.

Here are some examples:

Your friend: I won’t ever do network marketing. It’s a total scam.

You: You won’t ever do network marketing. [It would be easy to raise your voice at the end. That would change your reflective listening into a challenge that would put your friend on the defensive. Instead, your friend has heard how final her statement sounds.]

Your friend: Oh, I don’t mean never. I just can’t imagine doing one more thing right now.

Your brother: Are you crazy? Only idiots do network marketing.

You: [Family can say hurtful things. But do they really mean it? No! This is your brother who would give you the shirt off his back. Now you are going to repeat what he said neutrally. Don’t let the tone of your voice go up at the end even a little.] Only idiots do network marketing. [If you let your voice go up, you and your brother may not talk together at the next family reunion. If you keep a neutral tone of voice, you keep that precious relationship with your brother healthy.]

Your brother: Oh, you know what I mean. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Why are you doing this? [Wouldn’t you love to be able to tell him.]

One of the benefits of reflective listening is to put your sister or friend at ease. If they know that you just joined one of those things, they know what is coming. They may not want to join you but they don’t want to say no either.

Two smiling women drinking coffee and talking in outdoor cafe

By reflectively listening, you begin to release your agenda. They will sense that and realize that they can say no. It may make it easier for them to eventually say yes.

The Benefits of Reflective Listening:

  • It helps you release your agenda by giving their statements importance.
  • It puts them at ease once they realize you are not going to pressure them.
  • It demonstrates that you care more about the friendship than a sale.
  • It helps you listen to what is being said to you.
  • It helps your family member hear what they are saying.
  • It eases your nerves by focusing on what they are saying instead of trying to get an opening for “your script.”
  • It is the beginning of a productive conversation by preparing you and your friend for the other listening skills.

Here is why you may find Reflective Listening hard:

  • Reflective listening seems silly until you have experienced its power.
  • Many people struggle with keeping their voice neutral.
  • You may be nervous about your goal of sharing your business or product.
  • You are worried about your friend’s reaction.
  • You don’t feel in control of the conversation.
  • You haven’t discovered the power of not being in control.

Practice makes good; more practice makes better.

Restating Practice.

Find a partner, someone on your team maybe, and practice with these comments. Remember to keep your voice neutral and don’t let your voice rise at the end. Think about what your natural response might be and why it would be better to restate.

  1. I hate my job.
  2. I want a real vacation.
  3. I don’t want to hear about your weight loss products.
  4. I want to lose 15 pounds by my daughter’s wedding.
  5. We aren’t going to ever be able to retire at this rate.
  6. My husband is never at home when the kids are awake.

Rephrasing Practice.

Now you need to pick what you think is most important and rephrase it. You are still using the same words. Rephrasing is a better way to respond to comments you would like to refute. If you reflectively listen you will begin a dialogue that will be much more conducive for you to eventually answer their concerns.

  1. I hate having to work. I just want to stay home and take care of my family. [If you invest time listening, you will learn more about what could be a huge “Why”.]
  1. My brother-in-law did that and didn’t make a dime. [If you respond with a fact that refutes this statement, the discussion may end as an argument.]
  1. I get my essential oils from Vitamin Cottage and they cost less there. [If you tell them that they get what they pay for, the conversation is over. If you rephrase this, the conversation can go forward. Perhaps, you will learn that they aren’t so sure of the value of their essential oil. You will be able to continue with the other listening skills if you reflectively listen first. Who knows, this may be your next distributor.]
  1. I don’t have the time. I have been working overtime, my kids are starting soccer and ballet and my husband is always out of town on business.
  1. I did the last venture with you and we lost money, remember? I can’t afford to lose any more money.
  1. I don’t know as many people as you do. And I don’t want to make my friends mad at me.

The key to using rephrasing well is to pick a part of the larger statement for two reasons.

First, it would be weird to repeat a long complex statement.Reflective listening allows your friends (1)

Second, you can pick which one you want to learn more about.

In comment number five you could respond reflectively with, We lost money. Or you can’t afford to lose money.

I would pick the second because I am curious about the finances of your friend. Is there something she is struggling with that she hasn’t shared with you?

Practice reflective listening when you interact with people for the next few days and observe what happens.

When angry words are spoken to us, our first instinct is to react with anger. We all know how effective that is at diffusing an incident.

Imagine instead that we all use reflective listening. It might look like this:

Angry person: What are you doing? I was there first.

You: You were there first. [If you raise your voice at the end, it will sound like you are challenging the Angry Person and you better get ready to duck.]

Angry person: I had my eye on the end of the line and you came out of nowhere, so maybe we got here at same time.

You [Because you have kept your cool you will be gracious.]: That’s okay. Go ahead first.

Then as you stand in line you use the next of the Five Listening Skills: Interpretive Listening. You will not believe how that will turn this situation around.

Reflective Listening is hard. Practice it every chance you get and you will grow as a listener.

Find a friend to practice with. You can even try practicing on the phone.

I am considering hosting zoom sessions for practice. If that interests you, email me.

As always, I value your input.

God bless you,

If you could learn Five Listening Skills that would make you a better recruiter. . .

Would you?

What if those skills would be useful in other areas of your life?

Would that interest you?

With these Five Listening Skills, you can improve:

  • Your relationships

  • Your job

  • Your friendships

  • Your service to others

  • Your spiritual life

  • And your business!

I underlined your business not because it is necessarily the most important to you.

My business isn’t most important to me, but here our focus will be on your business; because your business finances the rest of your life.

The wonderful part is, that if you focus on being a better listener for your business, it will spill over into the other areas of your life.

And if you will practice your listening skills in your relationships, job, friendships, service to others and your spiritual life, your improved listening skills will automatically benefit your business.

As Robert Baden-Powell says, “If you make listening and observation your occupation, you will gain much more than you can by talk.”

If you make listening and observation your occupation, you will gain much more than you can by talk. (2)

So, if you want to change your life and your business . . .

. . . read (listen with your mind) on!

But listening isn’t easy; we have to learn how to listen.

You will be glad you learned to listen; because as Doug Larson says, “Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk.”

wisdom is the reward (1)

Perhaps you are wondering who am I to preach listening to you.

I am a natural listener, who sucks at listening.

What do I mean “a natural listener”? You might be a natural listener.

Do you recognize that people come to you and share their heartache and deep dark secrets?

You may be a natural listener.

Like when you are at the pool reading a riveting mystery and the gal next to you starts telling you about her failing marriage. It happened once.

All my life that has been the case. Even when I wasn’t equipped to listen properly, people shared with me.

In my freshman year of college, a friend shared something with me that I was unprepared for. I had no idea what to do with the information she shared with me.

To my shame, I just forgot about it, and a few weeks later I said something that must have been very hurtful to her.

She looked hurt as she said, “Don’t you remember what I told you?”

I still didn’t have anything to say that would help her. I hope she got help from someone; because she sure didn’t get help from me.

So, some people just are easier to talk to. I may be one of them. You may be one of them.

But we still must learn to listen.

Listening is a skill that if nurtured will serve those who are in your life.

I had to learn just like you.

I have failed — I have learned.

I have trained others.

For fifteen years, I was the director of a nonprofit organization that provided services to women and their families through our volunteers. Part of my job was to train those volunteers.

A large part of the training was teaching Five Listening Skills.

You can learn those same skills, and you will see them benefit your relationships and your business.

You will find that you can relax when meeting someone new; because these skills take the pressure off you.

You will make new friends and help others in ways that you never imagined.

That’s because of something Alan Alda said, “Listening is being able to be changed by the other person.”

Listening is being able to be changed by the other person

Who can benefit from learning these Five Listening Skills?

These Five Listening Skills are for you if you are:

  • New to network marketing
  • A veteran network marketer
  • A Facebook or digital marketer
  • An owner of a brick and mortar business
  • An educator
  • A spouse or parent

These Five Listening Skills are not for you if you are:

  • Someone in a hurry.
  • Someone who is successfully using “old school” techniques,
    • Unless you are a true leader ready to adapt old methods to new times.

Are you in? Listening is hard.

Consider this quote by Peter Drucker, “The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.”

The most important

Listening isn’t easy but it will reward you in countless ways.

Here is what you are going to learn:

  • Four Common Listening Blunders
  • Four Cures for Ineffective Listening
  • Five Listening Skills
  • Strategies for Listening Online and Offline

Learning to listen is a cure for the NFL (no friends left) syndrome. That’s because of the truth of a quote by Karl A. Menninger, “Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”

Listening is the magnetic

You do want to draw people to you and your business, don’t you?

So, let’s get started.

We are plagued in our communication by four common listening blunders.

Once, you have identified them, you are ready to do away with them. The Five Listening Skills will help you.

First, we are often controlled by a closed mind or an agenda.

Having an agenda will close your mind to other possibilities.

How do you recognize that you are being controlled by your agenda? You feel frustrated with someone’s response to your question or comment.

If we leave our agenda out of the conversation, we won’t be discouraged by the direction it takes. But how do you know if you are controlled by an agenda? Here are a few clues:

  • You are using a script that you have been taught.

The problem with scripts is that your friend doesn’t have a copy. Scripts are great to help you see natural ways to talk about your business. But with the Five Listening Secrets, you will be comfortable with impromptu conversations that will become tailored to the needs of your friend.

  • You feel discouraged or frustrated by the direction the conversation takes.

You want to share the exciting new business you are in and your friend is talking about wanting to find the perfect job.

Or you want to share about the revolutionary new supplement that could help your sister have better health and she talks about seeing a new doctor.

  • Your friend raises an objection that you leaves you speechless.

This will happen if you see yourself as the message instead of the messenger. You should have a third party that is the message.

It can be a call or zoom meeting with someone in your up line or even cross line.

It can be a recorded video.

If you struggle referring to others, ask yourself why.

Sometimes we want to come across as the one with the knowledge. Have a heart to heart with yourself. Explain that third party sources are the most effective way to get the information to your friends.

Sometimes we don’t trust our up line. You may not want someone to put the “hard sell” on your best friend.

I had that fear. But after a call or two, I realized that I could trust my sponsor and up line. Give your up line a chance. If there is part of their approach that you are uncomfortable with, talk to them about it.

Sometimes it is the fear of new technology. Zoom.us is used widely today by network marketers and is user-friendly. But if you are unsure ask your upline for help and get started using technology. You will become proficient. Until then laugh off the mistakes. Your friends will laugh with you, not at you.

Second, we are limited by not empathizing or listening to understand

Stephen Covey said that one of the seven habits of highly successful people is to first seek to understand, then to be understood.
When we fail to first understand, we have overlooked one of the keys to being heard.
The problem is that you may not recognize that you aren’t listening to understand.
To be sure, assume that you aren’t listening to understand and learn the Five Listening Skills.

Third, you are distracted by surroundings.

You can’t get rid of all distractions. But you can be aware of their effect.
If you are going to a coffee shop, there will be the traffic of other customers and sounds of coffee machines.
If you go to someone’s home, there may be children or pets.
No matter where we go, we cannot escape the phone.

Fourth, you are bound by preconceived ideas.

One example of a preconceived idea is common with those of us who are “unemployable”. For us, there is no attraction of the “perfect job.” We believe that is a myth or lie.
But, that is our perception. It is a preconceived idea that your friend may not share.
You may believe in all natural health care options. That is a preconceived idea. Your friend may have no confidence in supplements and will only follow a doctor’s advice.
You cannot control your brother’s perceptions. He may not want to share with family and friends.
You do not want to change your ideas, but you need to be aware of them and their effect on your ability to listen effectively.

The good news is that there are Four Cures for Ineffective Listening.

Your best line of defense to the listening blunders are the Five Listening Skills but there are other ways you can be a more effective listener:

First, release your agenda. Recognize that you have an agenda and then let it go.

One of the biggest agendas is the need to sign up people. This probably is fueled by your need to make some money.

You should remember that you are not an employee. You are a business owner. Employees expect to be paid soon after they have worked. Business owners know that they are working towards making a profit; but that it is a process that requires patience.

If you have realistic expectations, your agenda will be less of a problem.

Empathize so that you can listen to understand.

Empathy is the act of putting yourself in the place of the other person. Imagine what it must feel like to experience what they are experiencing.

Empathy is greatly enhanced by the Five Listening Skills. You will learn skills that enable you to empathize.

As much as you can, remove or keep distractions at a minimum.

This is pretty easy to understand, not so easy to implement.

You can ask people to turn off cell phones. But not all of them will. Just make sure your phone is turned off!

If you are doing a home meeting, arrange for children and pets to be out of the picture.

My puppie Max is a huge distraction and it is hard to remove him. He is either in the room stealing attention with his cuteness or he is making a fuss because he is behind a closed door.

Zoom.us works really well for me. Max photo bombs the video sometimes but his presence is minimized.

You will have your own set of complications caused by distractions. Learn to anticipate and avoid all that you can. Learn to live with the rest.

Finally, you must be open to new ideas and solutions.

Be open to the idea that your best friend or sister is never going to join you in your business because it just isn’t what they want to do.

Be open to the fact that your brother would rather keep working and doesn’t want to sell stuff to family and friends.

Don’t be floored if someone you were sure would be your next “rock star” signs up with another network marketing company.

You know that what you are doing is absolutely right for you. People are not made with cookie cutters. What is right for you will be absolutely wrong for many of the people in your life.

What is wonderful for you might be awful for your next door neighbors. They might want to raise pit bulls.

The key is to remember that what works for you probably won’t work for your best friend, or sibling, or spouse. After all, if everyone wanted to do network marketing, you would not be nearly as valuable to your company.

We have finished an introduction to the Five Listening Skills for Highly Effective Recruiting. You are ready to get started. We’ll look at each of the Five Listening Skills in the next five chapters and conclude with a chapter on how you can use your new listening skills using online and offline strategies.

Watch for the next chapter on Reflective Listening. It is the skill that will help you to connect and create a relaxed conversation.

I value your input. Please email your comments and suggestions.

Chapter Two – Reflective Listening – coming soon.

How to Build Your Network Marketing Business Online Leveraging the Five Levels of Internet Automation

You are building your business in the 21st Century.

You want to use 21st Century strategies, don’t you?

My mentor Ferny Ceballos, outlines how you can use the internet to automate your business in stages.

Reality check:

There are a lot of people in network marketing—especially six- and seven-figure earners—who have to work their tail off to maintain their income.

And though they have created a successful lifestyle, when they stop working, their income immediately drops.

Which, I think we can all agree, isn’t what you want!

Because if you’re anything like me, you started your business to have more time freedom, not less.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way…

Growing and maintaining your network marketing income doesn’t have to be a perpetual “hamster wheel” of zero time-freedom.

In this article, I’m going to share the five levels of automation to scale your network marketing income in the modern technological era.

Plus, I’m going to reveal how you can do so, without being further involved.

So, starting at the top…

What I call “Level Zero” is where we all start and doesn’t yet involve building online.

This level has little or no systems in place for the purposes of automation.

At this level you’re simply focused on learning to be effective with the fundamental skills of network marketing, which are related to person-to-person activities:

  • Person-to-person prospecting
  • Person-to-person presentations
  • Person-to-person training

In Level Zero, everything is done in-person and everything is done manually.

This where we all start, because that’s where our upline starts us.

You must do hands-on training to enroll people, because there are no systems in place to automate that.

It’s also up to you to track how well you’re performing from a prospecting standpoint.

Any metrics you have, you must produce for yourself.

Basically, everything’s manual and person-to-person—the prospecting, the presentation, the training, and the tracking.

But, as you might have guessed if you’re read this far, there’s a better way!

And in “Level One,” you begin to automate your business.

The very first (and biggest) problem with traditional network marketing we solve here at Elite Marketing Pro, is automating lead generation.

This means putting prospecting and lead generation systems in place, so you’re no longer bugging friends and family, strangers on the street, or people at parties.

Now you’re no longer in “prospecting mode” every time you’re surrounded by people.

You automate the prospecting aspect of your business and create systems to make it happen.

That’s where we get all of our students started.

If you are ready to move forward with building your business online, I’d like to invite you to sign up for my FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp, where you’ll gain the knowledge to create an automated selling and prospecting system to attract highly-interested prospects to your product or opportunity online.

An example of automating the prospecting aspect of your business is learning how to effectively create Facebook Ads.

Specifically, Facebook Messenger Ads, delivered to a targeted audience.

Imagine being able to target the followers of Robert Kiyosaki, or John Maxwell, or Steven Covey, or Tony Robbins.

You target their followers, and send a compelling message that creates curiosity and interest.

If you think you can do this on your own, you’re sadly mistaken.

I highly recommend you get training from our team, because you don’t want to do the wrong thing and wind up getting in trouble.

Facebook doesn’t look kindly upon mistakes!

If you know what you’re doing, you can run ads that lead to actual Messenger chats, on your phone or computer.

And then you can segue those conversations to an actual live presentation, which either you or your upline presents.

At this point, you’ve created a certain level of automation where the leads are coming in, and you never have to worry about being out in public prospecting, ever again.

So that’s level one of this automation scenario—automating your prospecting.

However, at this point, you’re still doing the person-to-person presentations, so that’s still manual.

Any tracking you’re doing is still done manually.

And, of course, when you get a new recruit, you’re still going to have to train them manually, one-on-one.

But at least you’ve solved the number one issue in network marketing, which is finding enough prospects to talk to.

So that’s Level One.

Next up…

“Level Two” involves creating conversion systems, which means automating the presentation part of the business—that’s the conversion aspect.

So, at this point you’ve gotten the lead and now you must convert that person to an actual customer or distributor in your business.

Examples of these types of automated or semi-automated conversion systems are sales funnels and webinar funnels.

A sales funnel is just a sales process that’s done through a website.

A webinar funnel is getting people onto a webinar—an online presentation—where you can have 100, 200, 500, or even 1,000 people watching and they can make a buying decision or a decision to join your organization, due to that webinar presentation.

Another example of a semi-automated conversion system is leveraging Facebook groups.

Now…

There’s not just one correct way to do it

There are multiple ways to create presentations and conversion systems.

It’s really about focusing on what’s most effective for you and your business.

However, at this point, when you bring in a new person, you still have to do the person-to-person training.

So you still have not automated the training and the tracking systems.

So how do you keep track of all the people you’ve brought in through the prospecting, and how do you figure out where everybody is at?

Read on to find out!

“Level Three” is when you create tracking systems.

At this point, you have a lot of people signing up and joining, and you need to track your metrics and keep track of where everybody is at in the process.

That means is tracking your conversions from…

  • Ad to lead
  • Lead to new customer or new distributor
  • New customer or new distributor to a properly trained distributor

These are numbers you have to keep track of in order to assess the health of your business

If these numbers aren’t reaching a certain threshold, then you’re not doing something properly.

And you’re in danger of your entire business falling apart if you don’t have the proper tracking systems in place.

You can’t grow what you can’t measure.

So you MUST have tracking systems in place.

Note that you can build “Level Three” and “Level Four” at the same time, because both are necessary at this stage.

Quick recap:

At this point you’ve automated your lead generation, and you’ve automated the presentation or conversion aspect of your business, and you have tracking in place, so you know where your numbers are at.

Now you want to automate the training systems for the purposes of duplication.

Once the training systems are in place you can create massive scale and duplication in your business.

Now, you can build this training as you go.

So as you build your prospecting, conversion, and tracking systems, you also want to create trainings to show your people how to also leverage each aspect of those systems for themselves.

This is going to be through some sort of private membership, so it’s not public.

And here’s what you’re doing…

You’re training people through the different stages of growth in their business

This could also be the stages of growth of acquiring certain skillsets.

And as their income grows, you can provide them with pertinent trainings as they hit certain rank levels in their business.

How you do this will be up to you, and unique to your business, but you want to have some sort of training systems in place.

Now, the final level of creating these automated systems is…

The business systems of “Level Five,” in and of themselves, have many levels.

Unfortunately, I can’t dive too deep into what business systems look like in this article, as it’s a huge subject, but as an example:

Business systems include hiring a team.

This means putting an in-house team in place to run all the systems I’ve previously described.

The point here is to create time-freedom, right?

So you want to hire a team to maintain what’s happening in your business.

But not only maintain it, you want to have them continue to…

  • Develop it
  • Improve it
  • Grow it
  • Update it

These are things you don’t want to personally do, so you hire a team to do them for you

Business systems are often pretty comprehensive.

Within business systems you have hiring systems, systems for creating the operating manual for your business, financial systems to assure the money is being taken care of properly, etc.

You have a lot of different systems for running an actual company, because by the time you get to this level you essentially have a separate business in and of itself, because all these systems essentially become their own business entity and are a valuable asset.

This is when you are truly free

Because it doesn’t matter what happens to your company, you now have your own asset which allows you to rebuild if something happens to your company.

Or you could choose to help others in the industry build their own systems.

Now, this all might seem overwhelming, and you’re certainly not going to do it overnight.

It took me quite a few years in order to get through all these different levels in my business.

In fact, it took me 10 years to get to Level Five.

You’re probably not going to get past Level Two in your first year, but you’ll be able to incorporate certain parts of level three:

  1. You’re going to automate your prospecting
  2. You’re going to set up some systems to automate the conversion aspect (or semi-automate the conversion aspect)
  3. And most definitely you’re going to set up tracking for those first two levels

Maybe you don’t have tracking as sophisticated as, say, we do, but you don’t need it to be.

The goal for your first year…

…should be to have Levels One and Two, and a bit of Three in place, so you’re creating more leverage and some time freedom.

Now, if you’re ready to start automating that first level of your business—your prospecting systems—and you’re not sure where to start…

Then I highly recommend you sign up for my free online recruiting bootcamp.

You will never again have to go to a party and talk to a single person about your business, unless you want to.

And you’ll learn the exact online strategies I use to passively generate 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business-builders into my business each month.

These are the same methods I’ve used to create a world-wide brand and over 14 million dollars in revenue.

From Underpaid University Professor to Six-Figures in Network Marketing

Why would someone with a successful, prestigious career in academia make the switch to network marketing?

Honestly, a better question yet might be asking why more successful people aren’t making the same decision!

And in the exclusive interview below, Ferny Ceballos’ special guest Grazyna Pajunen shares why she left her position as an electrical engineering professor to pursue network marketing, and most importantly for you, how she achieved six figures.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Felitemarketingpro%2Fvideos%2F1730814593600436%2F&show_text=0&width=560

Below area few key takeaways from Grazyna’s story…

1. Search for Freedom

Grazyna went from a prestigious career in academia, working on multiple types of research, loving what she was doing, to not feeling fulfilled how she thought she would.

She couldn’t set herself financially free; the money was just not there.

The financial and time freedom we all want, simply could not be found in her career as a distinguished professor.

Can you relate?

Nevertheless, there was one thing Grazyna knew, and it was…

“If she focused on something, she knew she could achieve it”

So, after looking around for some time, a friend introduced her to her first network marketing company, and…

When she looked at the business plan, it made perfect sense to her

So she went for it.

What Grazyna soon discovered was that although she had achieved some type of success, mainly in Poland and in Europe, what she was doing wasn’t sustainable.

She couldn’t keep traveling back and forth from Europe to the United States every 3 weeks, so she decided to give up her network marketing career and focus on her real estate business.

But, following the 2008 market crash, and after her husband developed a problem with his shoulder and needed surgery, she knew something had to be done and she needed to look elsewhere.

For this reason, Grazyna started doing some research to find something that could help her husband and as a result, she found a product that was able to heal his shoulder and help him avoid surgery.

Grazyna became fascinated with this product; she studied it and shared it, soon becoming a representative of the company that sold it, which led her to become a six-figure earner in that company.

Still, the same problem that she had encountered years before found her again.

How could she build a global company without having to travel so much?

In that moment, she decided to search outside of her company (and the “old school” way of doing things) and went online to find the answer.

After trying to teach herself Internet marketing without success, she found Elite Marketing Pro, way back in 2013.

She realized this was the solution she was looking for, immediately started with EMP, and soon began getting great results.

However, the company she represented discovered this and stopped her from promoting their products online.

Boo!

Unfortunately, this is all too common and I suggest you read the following post…

A Warning if You’re Building Your Network Marketing Business Online

Fast forward to now, and she has partnered again with EMP, and is super excited to grow her business using the Internet.

And if you are ready to move forward with building your business online, I’d like to invite you to sign up for my FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp, where you’ll gain the knowledge to create an automated selling and prospecting system to attract highly-interested prospects to your product or opportunity online.

In Grazyna’s words…

“I still believe that developing my business on the Internet is basically the only way to go…this is the way of the future”

2. Believe in Yourself

More network marketers than not, experience negative comments and backlash.

Sometimes it could be from well-intentioned friends and family members.

Other times from people that are happy to crush your dreams, for whatever reasons.

In any case, it is hard to hear negativity from anyone, especially when it comes from people whose opinion you respect.

But, and this is key…

You need to push through it and choose better advice

Usually, you can find great advice from people that have already gone through what you are going through, and have actually achieved the success you want.

You MUST find a way to drown out the negative comments, have confidence in yourself, and believe that you can do it!

Go with your gut feeling.

Like Grazyna, she had the confidence that she could achieve anything she set her mind to.

Despite being successful in her career and having achieved recognition in her field, she knew there was something missing.

Moreover, she didn’t feel fulfilled because she wanted to achieve the kind of money and time freedom only having her own business would give her.

If you feel the same, want to be your own boss, and do what you want to do, you need to let go and stop listening to the negativity of people around you.

But, how?

Well, if you focus on what you want, find the right people, and the training you need to improve your skills and follow it with consistent action, you will be able to achieve it!

It is only a matter of time.

Believe in yourself, and don’t give up!

However, there’s a crucial factor in achieving success, can you guess what it is?

Hint: it’s not about you!

3. Focus on Helping Others

This point is crucial in achieving success, because if we help enough people get what they want, we’ll get what we want.

So, find out how you can help other people with whatever problem they have.

And ask yourself every day before you start to work on your business…

“Who could I help today?”

You’ll be surprised how many people out there need what you are offering.

You need to provide a solution to people’s problems.

That is what marketing is about, well…good marketing anyway.

Focus on other people’s problems, issues, or desires

Remember, it’s never about you!

This is an important lesson, which most people in network marketing need to learn.

People don’t care about joining your, “billion-dollar company.”

What people care about is what’s going on in their life.

Whether you’re doing it offline or online, you need to focus on helping other people with their issues or to achieve their desired outcomes.

Stop focusing on how broke you are and how many people you need to recruit to pay your bills

That mindset will get you nowhere fast!

Focus on helping others; I can’t stress that enough.

Now, you need to find those people who are in need of your help.

And nowadays, that place is mainly online.

At least, it’s the place where you can reach more people in a shorter amount of time, not to mention in a more efficient way.

Like Grazyna, finding a network marketing company that has more progressive policies so you can work online, and are supportive of trying new ways, is key.

4. Build Your Network Marketing Biz Online

Nowadays, more and more leaders in network marketing are building their businesses online.

They’re using traditional recruiting strategies alongside social media to create leverage, increase the number of people they can reach, and most importantly, maximize their time.

As most of us are aware, time is our biggest commodity and you don’t want to waste it running around going through lots of trial and error to get to where you want to go.

Right?

That will take you months or even years!

Not to mention, you’ll probably be throwing away lots of money along the way.

Therefore, for you to avoid, or at the very least minimize this risk, you need to find systems that will help leverage your time.

As well as mentors to guide you along the way, so you can succeed.

That’s why following a system that actually works is the smartest way to build your business.

And the smartest, more effective and efficient way to build your business in this day and age, is online.

A small caveat…

I’m not saying that offline doesn’t work, because it does

So, if you are already building your network marketing business offline and it’s working, that’s great!

Keep doing that.

But, know that there is more than one way to build a successful business, and online is one of the best, if not the best way of doing it.

Yes, you still need to build relationships with people!

And build the skills to recruit and create duplication in your team.

Just Wade In

Life can overwhelm.

Working to change your life, even more so.

It really doesn’t matter what area of life we are talking about. Life overwhelms us when we are attempting change. That’s probably why many don’t like change.

Even if life as we know it stinks, it seems better than wading into the overwhelming changes.

Learning new business skills can be overwhelming and when those skills include learning new technology it can be so daunting that avoiding the change seems a better choice.

Over the last year I have been with an affiliate marketing company that teaches network marketers to use the internet. Much of what I have learned has overwhelmed me. Yet, I moved forward and have succeeded.

As I considered this, I was reminded of a Bible event.

You can read it in the book of Joshua, Chapter 3.

Moses had died and now Joshua led Israel. They were ready to enter the promised land. But to do that they had to cross the Jordan. There was no bridge.

To make things worse the river was at flood stage.

sermon-on-our-way-to-the-promise-land-5-638
I googled Jordan river at flood stage. I found this image that includes statistics.

When they left Egypt, God took them in a direction that required that they cross the Red Sea. God parted the waters and they walked through on dry land.

So, parting the Jordan wasn’t a problem for God. But Israel still needed to grow in their walk with Him.

God instructed Joshua to have the priests carry the Ark of the Covenant into the water. Then, and only then, did a way across the Jordan appear. The Bible says that the waters were cut off and stood in a heap.

All of Israel was able to cross the Jordan in this extraordinary way.

I learned that with internet marketing I needed to just wade in.

The technology seemed to flood in and overwhelm me.technology_zyQIwkw__L.jpg

But I chose to just wade in to learn the next skill, and I moved forward.

As I look back I am amazed at all I have learned.

Want more info on what I am learning? Here is a link to a free Ten Day Attraction Marketing Boot Camp.

Just wade in and see if it is a fit.

Although internet marketing can seem overwhelming, building a business using just old school techniques isn’t much better.

One of the first things that we teach is to make a list.

business-19148_1920Do most of your prospects like doing that?

I remember a friend who signed up with me – twice.

She loved the products and knew that she needed the business.

But every time we talked about making a list she literally froze. I tried to help her through it; but she never got past it.

I am pretty sure that if she had just waded in she would have succeeded. I know for me making calls became easier as I got more experience.

In my opinion, using internet marketing to build your network marketing business is the best method for today.

But I don’t think that building an internet list lets us off the hook for making the list.

The new people will still have to just wade in.

However, knowing that you have the internet as your back up list is a little bit like having the priests standing in the river with the Ark.

It certainly has given me a posture with friends and strangers that I didn’t have before.

Marketing to friends and family is problematic.

Marketing to strangers you can find that are already interested in what you are doing not so much so.

If you haven’t already checked out Attraction Marketing, just wade in and see what you think. Is it a fit for you?

I love hearing from you. Call or email me.

God bless you,

10 Actions More Effective Than Wearing Company Branded Clothing

I don’t know about you but it irks me when someone slams an idea without offering constructive alternatives.

So today, after yesterday’s blog –  I Will Not Wear My Company’s Branded Clothing! And Why You Shouldn’t Either.,  I challenged myself to make a list of ten actions that are more effective than wearing your company’s branded clothing.

My list comes with this disclaimer: You can still wear your company clothing. Just don’t think that it is working to build your business. And be aware that you might be advertising for someone cross line of you.

I believe that any action other than wearing company branded clothing is likely to work better as advertising for your business.

And you need to be advertising even if you don’t have an advertising budget.

  1. Be a Product of Your Product

approval-15914_1920Your advertising budget should include purchasing of your product.

Enjoy the benefits of your unique product (I hope your product is unique. And can you explain to someone simply why your product is unique?)

Talk about the benefits you are receiving.

If you represent a health and wellness product, share how you are feeling.

If you represent a beauty product, share selfies of you feeling more beautiful and confident.

If you represent a technology product, share how your life is more productive.

  1. Be a Positive Person – Even When Negative Things Are Happening

woman-in-home-office-using-computer-smiling_StveHcpAHj.jpgThink about your Facebook Friends and their posts. Which ones are you drawn to? Is it the people who are constantly complaining? Are you drawn to people who see themselves as losers and victims?

You are drawn to the people who can post positively even when events in their lives are negative.

They may be sharing a prayer request when life throws them a difficulty. But they most likely will also share gratitude to those who offer encouragement.

Are you especially impressed by those who are grateful?

Be positive. Be grateful.

Give yourself a gratitude challenge. For thirty days post about something/someone you are grateful for.

  1. Take Responsibility – Make Those Calls

woman-indoors-using-cellular-phone_SKOX3RHo.jpgThis one falls under the category Anything Is More Effective than Wearing Branded Clothing.

For some network marketers, making calls is highly effective. For some, maybe you, it just isn’t. But it is still better than wearing branded clothing.

And there are certainly ways of making calls that are more effective than others. It takes practice to find which works best for you. It takes practice at being effective doing it.

  1. Invite to Company Event

I can say ditto to my comments from #3. Still many people have grown their business using the invite. It will work for some very well. Try it and see how it works for you.

Today, most of us can even invite people in other parts of the country, even the world, to internet events.

Don’t dismiss this action too quickly.

  1. Brand Yourself

mobile-phone-1917737_1920Create a Facebook Fan Page.

(Or similarly use Twitter or LinkedIn or Instagram or YouTube. I decided to only focus on one and chose Facebook.)

There are good ways to use Facebook and there are better ways.

And there are ways that are business busters.

Don’t be spamy!

If you want to use Facebook, do it well.

Julie Burke built her network marketing business using Facebook. She didn’t make a list or invite to home meetings. She built a 6-figure business and trained her team to use her methods.

Here is a link to a blog by Julie about building your personal brand.

  1. Love Others More Than Yourself

join-770560People won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

And you won’t care about others unless you love them.

Decide to love those around you and you will find that you care more about them.

Once that happens, they will open up to listening to you.

Even so, your opportunity isn’t for everyone. When you love someone and they have a plan they are passionate about, do you encourage them in it?

There are several people in my life that I strive to be all the encouragement I can be as they pursue something other than joining me and my opportunity. I do it because I love them.

  1. Be Passionate About Your Company and Products

This is an affirmation of what you hear from your company and up line ad nauseam.

Attend events.

130413_lifevantage-366 (2)Events are designed to build and sustain your passion.

Passion is a key ingredient for overcoming your fear of sharing.

Skip events at the risk of slowing down your business growth.

  1. Interact with New Contacts Every Day

0o1a5090-1644 (1).jpgThree a day.

That is a pretty constant number when I hear folks from different companies talk about what it takes to be successful.

It is true whether your contacts are to a cold market or warm market.

If you don’t want to continue to hound your family and friends, you need to build your list from the rest of the world’s population.

Here is the good news.

There are more people you don’t know than people you do know.

Go find them!

  1. Listen to Your Warm Market with a Servant Heart

beautiful hipster young women sisters friends

After you have begun to practice #6 you can put this action to use. Listen to folks to hear what they want. Be ready to support them in what they believe is best.

You can only do that when you love them.

And even then it will be hard.

I have a product that I believe will change everyone’s health.

It is hard to accept when people I love aren’t using it.

Here are a couple questions that I ask myself. Maybe they will help you.

“Do you like someone telling you what personal choices you should make?”

“Do you want someone else to make decisions for you?”

For me the answer is a huge NO!

Remember that when sharing, allow others to make their own choices.

Keep in mind that you are an educator about your company and products. You are not in control of others’ lives.

  1. Attraction Marketing

AMF_Banner_300x300

You have another internet option besides Facebook.

It enables you to target an audience which is likely to be interested in your products and/or business opportunity.

It involves a bit of a learning curve depending on how involved you choose to make it.

It makes the internet your market.

You can choose to never trouble family or friends again.

If that is something that you want to investigate, I recommend a free Ten Day Attraction Marketing Boot Camp.

Attraction Marketing isn’t for everyone.

I have been challenged by the learning curve and exhilarated by rising to the challenge.

It has enabled me to continue sharing while staying home with my mom.

But you will have to commit to learning new skills.

And those are my ten.

Do you have any additional actions to suggest? I know you have.

Email me  your ideas.

God bless you,

Three Proven Ways to Grow Your Network Marketing Business, Using the Internet

Before I met my friend and mentor Ferny Ceballos, my business was dead in the water.

My mom needed more care; that meant not much opportunity to get out and engage with my cold market.

My warm market loved me, but not my business. They weren’t going to suddenly say yes.

But I loved the company and products I represented.

I am so glad I found my guest blogger.

Ferny Ceballos is incredible.

He has taught me a way to make the internet my cold market. He has taught me how to warm it up.

But you should see for yourself. Here is his blog; Ferny Ceballos, my friend and mentor:

They say attending events is the key to having success in network marketing today, but there is one particular generic event I attended this past October which was a game changer for the industry.

Spending a week in Vegas for many, including myself, can prove to be a dangerous proposition.

The booze, the partying, the gambling, the… well… you get the idea…

However, for this event, ‘discipline’ was the name of the game for me!

Ok, I did have my share of sipping tequila, but if you know me… that’s pretty normal.

And I did skip out on business meetings to grab a seat at the Sports Book to watch game 4 of Dodgers vs Mets playoff game.

Aside from that, I was there to learn some network marketing strategies and to actually network… and I was in bed every night by 11:00 p.ml and up in the morning by 8:00 a.m.!

With all the excitement surrounding the countless superstar entrepreneurs who would be speaking in front of 8,000 people at the main event, I was actually more excited about something else…

You see, last year, I had attended an event – exclusively for top leaders in network marketing.

I was excited to once again, be at this exclusive event.

And my excitement boiled down to ONE BIG REASON…

If you are a 6-figure earner and want to be a 7-figure earner… OR Are a 7-figure earner and want to stay a 7-figure earner…

Then you better find a way to be involved in 7-figure Conversations!

There’s so much I could share with you and in time, I will be sharing much of what I learned to those who subscribe to my bootcamp newsletter.

But for now, I’d like to focus in on what was probably the most important thing that was shared and discussed that entire week in Vegas.

Industry Leaders in Network Marketing Concede That “Internet Recruiting Works!”

19.supplemental_400x400_1

Friends of mine, who have earned tens of millions of dollars in network marketing, finally conceded that using “Internet marketing & recruiting can work!”

It is one of the most effective network marketing strategies ever!

Now, I’m not just talking about prospecting via social media, but marketing as well.

‘Internet marketing’ means using online branding strategies, advertising, Facebook fan pages, video blogging, email blasts, etc.

It always perplexed me that many leaders had this belief that Internet recruiting strategies were a “distraction,” given the fact that many of top earners have gone on to build their online brands using… well… Internet marketing!

Specifically, a type of Internet marketing we call “attraction marketing,” which focused on building a loyal following online and creating a trusted brand where people will literally buy anything you recommend, because they know, like and trust you.

Over the years, I had seen many people build successful network marketing businesses using the Internet, but since the majority of the industry still didn’t subscribe to these network marketing strategies, most leaders maintained the belief that it can’t be done and referred to it often as a “distraction.”

But standing in that room of about 200 top earners, were many people who had built their organizations partially or entirely online using pretty diverse Internet strategies, whom were recognized for their success and demonstrated that network marketing can be done using the internet with a diverse number of online network marketing strategies.

And believe me, I was paying special attention to these people when they stood up and shared, as did everyone else.

Therefore, as I’ve done many times before, I’m gonna share with you the top 3 Internet strategies that are actually used to build network marketing businesses today!

Strategy #1: Social Media Prospecting

19.supplemental_779x200_1.1

This strategy is an approach which will seem pretty familiar, because it’s prospecting as we’ve always done it, just with an online twist.

Now prospecting on social media is NOT “Internet marketing,” however it still beats camping out at Walmart.

This is the process my client, Jason, who is a 7-figure producer in network marketing teaches to his team, after their warm market runs out…

1) SEARCH – Use Facebook Search to find ‘friends of friends’ who live locally (at least to start with).

There are a few reasons for doing it this way…

First of all, Facebook allows you to directly message ‘friends of friends’ so that your message goes into their main inbox, instead of the “Other” inbox, which most people don’t even know exists. (I didn’t know either, prior to this).

Secondly, you start with local, because it will allow you to eventually meet face to face with them to form a more powerful personal connection. Given that you have no prior relationship, it’s important to meet.

2) QUALIFY – Next, you take a minute to look at their profile and identify key interests that might resonate with you personally, your business or your products. You are also looking for more subtle things, like are they smiling in their pictures? Are they outgoing? Do they seem to be a positive person?

Bear in mind, you are prospecting, but you are also qualifying them.

For example, an interest in Robert Kiyosaki might indicate an interest in entrepreneurship or diversified income streams. An interest in CrossFit indicates an interest in health and wellness and that might resonate with your company’s products.

3) MESSAGE – Then you craft your first message to them, which believe it or not, follows a somewhat standard prospecting approach.

You can come up with a template, but each message will be tailored to them specifically. This message will mention friends you have in common. You mention that you’re a recruiter for a “health & wellness company” or whatever the niche is, you’re “expanding in the area” and you ask if they are “open to earning extra money?”

As Jason described it, “You throw the ball in the air and see if they swing back at it.”

You DO NOT want to be posting copy/paste messages with links to sign up for your opportunity. Not only is that not effective, it’s considered SPAM by Facebook and can get your account shut down and get your company in trouble too.

In this initial message, you aren’t giving them any info or links. You are simply trying to get them to express an interest.

4) BOOK – If they “swing back,” book a face to face meeting, if local or at the very least get them on the phone. You just let them know that details are better explained in person and, “if we were to work together, it’s a good opportunity to see if we would like each other! ;-)”

At this point, if they meet with you, hopefully your company or upline have defined a solid process for you to follow here.

According to Jason, he and his team experience about a 30% positive response rate.

If they don’t answer back, there are some different approaches here. Some play it safe and leave the 70% that didn’t answer back, alone.

Jason is an advocate of following up with a 2nd message 4-5 days later, if they don’t answer back. It’s a short message simply to see if they a) received the 1st message and b) to see if they are interested. Sometimes they don’t get the first message or see the message when they are in the middle of something and forget to answer back.

The 2nd message, will usually double his overall results vs only sending 1 message.

Sending a 3rd follow-up message is not recommended. At this point, you assume a “NO” and move on.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg…

On top of this, there are some really powerful and high leveraged online prospecting & network marketing strategies utilized by a friend of mine, which you can learn more about it here.

Strategy #2: The ‘Mouse Trap’ Method

19.supplemental_779x200_2.1

This process is pretty simple and depending on your personality, may or may not be great for you. This pretty much involves posting your results on social media (i.e. setting the ‘mouse trap’) and waiting for people to express an interest via the comments or private message. (i.e SNAP!!!)

Additionally, to boost results, you can add a CALL TO ACTION to message you, if they want more info.

From a ‘leading with the opportunity’ angle, this would involve posting pictures and announcements about your ‘rags to riches’ story, income results, and the impact it’s made on your lifestyle. (Obviously, you can only do this if you’ve gotten results.)

I’ve seen people whom I know personally deploy this strategy with great success, but I’m a person that is very wary of this approach and I could see you running into compliance or even legal problems, if lots of people in your company are doing this. I personally don’t like this angle because it can piss off your real life friends & family, but I know it can work well too, because let’s face it, most people have a desire for more income.

Alternatively, with a ‘leading with the product’ angle, the mouse trap approach could be very powerful and usually more friend & company safe, especially if the results you are posting has to do with a personal or customer case study. This angle will help you generate more customers and a few of those customers may express an interest in the business, after they fall in love with the product.

We’ve seen this angle run rampant with weight loss challenges & case studies, which still work amazingly well, but can also work with other products, if there is a clear and visible result that was produced from product use.

For example, I’ve seen people in travel businesses, post pictures of their luxury vacation/trips and reveal how little they paid for that experience.

Or you can post pictures of yourself running a marathon, triathlon, or whatever, which would not have been possible without certain supplements.

Essentially, show everyone connected to you on social media a desirable change in your life, achieved in part or as a direct result of your product.

Once they express an interest, you follow whatever process you’ve been taught for closing people.

For closing offline after using strategy #1 or #2 for getting the prospect, I would recommend training by Tim Sales on presenting, closing, and enrolling new reps.

But if “closing” people is not your thing, then there’s my favorite Internet strategy, which I’ve employed in my business for the past 9 years…

Strategy #3: ‘Attraction Marketing’

19.supplemental_779x200_3

I think we will all look back at the year 2015 as the tipping point for when Internet marketing (i.e. passive online selling & recruiting) was finally legitimized as the force it deserves to be recognized as, in network marketing.

Person after person, stood up at the event saying they built their businesses, primarily using the internet.

Now, if they were only 6-figure earners, what has happened in the past is that ‘old schoolers’ would dismiss their success as a ‘fluke’ or ‘non-duplicatable.’

However, 2 seats from me sat a woman who stood up when 7-figure earners were asked to identify themselves and she openly said that she built online and she described her strategy. (I later interviewed her to get a detailed account on what she did.)

What she outlined as the blueprint for her business was exactly a method we’ve been teaching at Elite Marketing Pro for 10 years, which we call ‘attraction marketing,’ outlined in our FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp available here and published an e-book on called Attraction Marketing Formula.

In addition to her, others stood up and shared very similar approaches.

These folks didn’t message strangers online templated messages like in Strategy #1.

They didn’t fill their friend’s News Feeds with promotions for an opportunity or product as in Strategy #2.

What they did was they created a truly passive way of making sure that when they woke up each morning…

They would have an inbox full of notifications, letting them know that there were 10, 20, 50, or even hundreds of new prospects, interested in learning more about their opportunity or product or mentorship.

Or they would also have an inbox full of notifications of 5 – 10 new CUSTOMERS waiting to receive their product and excited about the possibility it holds for them.

Or they would also have an inbox full of notifications of 5 – 10 new DISTRIBUTORS ready to get signed up (or possibly already signed up while you slept), waiting to be led in their new exciting venture.

You see, just about every other type of business in the world is now using proven network marketing strategies, passive and scalable online marketing & advertising methods in ADDITION to prospecting and referral based methods.

So why NOT your network marketing or direct sales business? The only reason would be if it wasn’t a REAL business. But you and I know better.

There is a proven way to build online and you can learn more about it here via my bootcamp.

Just like anything else in business, this will take work and study.

But ultimately, enhancing your skill set by moving you into the 21st century. Are you ready for this journey?

Look forward to working with you.

How to Determine Your “Unique Selling Proposition” (Even if You’re Brand New!)

What makes your business unique?

If you’re not sure, then you might not be setting yourself apart from the competition.

Which means you could be missing out on quite a few leads and sales, because other marketers (with a more defined voice) are likely dominating the conversation and monopolizing your potential prospects’ limited attention.

So what should you do?800-3115-18-120

Well, you need to decide on your “unique selling proposition!”

And – you should read the rest of this blog from Ferny Ceballos:

Now, you might not know the concept of having a “USP,” yet it’s vitally important.

In fact, it’s actually one of the most important things you can develop for your business.

Basically, it’s what separates you from the ‘other guys.’

How you develop your USP will be a little different depending on whether you have a large company, or just a brand new distributorship in network marketing, affiliate marketing, or direct selling.

Let’s dive into the details…

Unique selling proposition, defined

Here’s the question…

What do you offer, which sets you apart from everybody else in the marketplace?

Now, you may think that your company provided you with a ready-made USP already…

Such as your ‘unique’ comp plan, or your ‘unique’ products or services, or whatever the case may be.

But there’s something wrong with this logic, because while those may very well be the USP for your company or their products…

The question remains:

What’s your unique selling proposition?

What will make people want to do business with YOU over somebody else, even in your own company (much less a different company or the entire market)?

Now, the fundamental definition of unique selling proposition is your position in the market.

But let’s dig a little deeper.

When you do a Google search for “unique selling proposition,” the top two results are from Entrepreneur.com and Kissmetrics.com.

And guess what, these competing definitions don’t agree.

Two unique USP definitions…

In fact, the Kissmetrics definition actually calls out the Entrepreneur definition and says it’s not adequate enough.

Which is clever marketing, btw, writing an article referencing the result that’s right above it in the Google search terms—it’s a great way to get noticed.

Entrepreneur.com’s definition is as follows…

“The factor or consideration presented by a seller as the reason that one product or service is different from, or better than, that of the competition.”

Basically what makes you different from the competition is what Entrepreneur.com is saying.

And it’s true that this is traditionally what a unique selling proposition is all about.

However, I actually like the Kissmetrics definition of USP better, because it’s more relevant and more clear.

And more importantly, it’s also something that, especially in recent history, is a more contemporary definition for a unique selling proposition.

Kissmetrics.com’s definition is as such…

A unique selling proposition is what your business stands for. It’s what sets your business apart from others because of what your business makes a stand about.

What they’re saying is if you try to stand for everything, you’ll actually stand for nothing.

For instance, you can’t be known for having the highest quality AND the lowest prices, or the best food AND the most inexpensive menu.

It doesn’t work.

You’ve got to plant your flag on a certain concept.

So the question actually is…

What do you stand for?

To explore this idea, Let’s take a look at…

Two great USP examples

Starbucks stands for premium coffee, but NOT premium coffee and cheap prices.

They want to give you the best coffee and overall experience that they can.

If you walk into the store, it’s laid out very nicely and Starbucks wants to give you a high quality coffee drinking atmosphere.

Zappos started off as a shoe company, but obviously selling shoes is not unique.

So what they stand for is the highest quality customer service in the world.

Literally, Zappos customer care people are willing to do just about anything for you!

You can basically call them up and tell them that you need different shoes because your current ones don’t fit.

They’ll not only send you new shoes, but they’ll even let you keep the old ones if you ask.

I’ve even heard people call Zappos and order a pizza, which actually shows up!

It’s kind of crazy, but Zappos has the best customer care.

Hands down.

So what about our unique selling proposition?

Elite Marketing Pro’s USP

When the company started, our unique selling proposition was fluid, but it really zeroed in recently.

Our USP is that we are willing to teach online recruiting strategies and methods that your upline isn’t.

That’s what we stand for.

We stand for teaching network marketers the most cutting edge digital networking and digital marketing strategies that exist today, from the people who are actually building their businesses using these strategies.

And these strategies are not something the ‘orthodoxy’ in the industry are willing to teach you.

That’s the message we deliver and that’s how we’re attracting networkers from across the world.

Our anti-orthodoxy stance is attracting top earners

Because there are six- and seven- figure earners who are getting frustrated and fed up with the network marketing orthodoxy who only want to follow “old school,” offline methods.

There are even seven-figure earners in network marketing right now that don’t even have Facebook accounts!

And, I mean, honestly…

How can you be relevant in today’s age if you don’t even have a Facebook account?

Well, that is essentially what we’re up against here at EMP.

Obviously not everyone’s like that, but networkers without Facebook accounts push back against going online, because they don’t understand it.

But the pages are turning as far as this industry is concerned…

…and we’re in a great position to help people discover digital marketing strategies for the network marketing, direct selling, and affiliate marketing space.

Example EMP affiliate’s USP

Now, let’s say you’re a member of Elite Marketing Pro and you’re promoting our blog posts (such as the one you’re reading right now), so you can use EMP’s content and offers to practice your new digital marketing skills.

That’s great!

But there’s also a catch…

Unfortunately, you’re gonna be doing the same thing as every other EMP member who’s also promoting our blog posts.

And that means sameness.

So what’s gonna set you apart?

Well, one of our members, for example, is doing something that most people aren’t willing to do.

She talks to her prospects straight from her ads!

You can learn more about her strategy right here:

How to Recruit with Facebook Sponsored Posts

But the short version is this: her ads include a call to action that say…

“Hey, you can click on the link in the description and you’ll learn more. Or if you’d like to speak directly with me and get some more information through private messaging, comment ‘More info’ below.”

And guess what happens?

People start commenting “more info,” because they’d rather TALK to somebody directly than go through an impersonal website or sales funnel.

Now don’t get me wrong, such automated strategies work, and they work great!

After all, we get hundreds of leads every single day from our websites and funnels.

But some people would rather just hop on the phone and ask…

“Okay, what’s this all about?”

And hey, you may be that type of person too.

So make no mistake…

Being willing to pick up the phone and talk to your prospects straight from your ads is a huge differentiator.

And it’s where I recommend most people in this industry start to produce quick results.

The one USP that will never go out of style is…

The willingness to hop on the phone and serve somebody, based on where they’re at, without pitching them your network marketing business.

This means you make recommendations based on what they need and what they tell you…

Not based on your agenda to funnel as many people into your networking business as possible.

That may be difficult for the new networker to fully understand, and especially old school networkers who have been around for a while (because they always walk around with an agenda to recruit everyone).

But what you’ll discover is that if you switch your mindset to service and truly listen to people, you’ll actually end up recruiting MORE people.

The “non-agenda approach” is much easier

Once you get your prospect on the phone, you’ll benefit from being able to listen to them talk about what they’re struggling with, so you can then make recommendations based on those exact struggles.

That’s gonna set you apart from most people in this industry.

There are a lot of marketers running ads on Facebook…

But how many are actually willing to hop on a private chat?

My guess is very few.

Now that’s a unique selling proposition that will never go out of style and will always be in high demand, because, again, people will always want to cut through the BS and just ask…

“Okay, what’s this about? Can you explain what’s going on?”

In fact, being willing to hop on the phone with somebody was the USP I personally used when I first got started.

So if I didn’t already hammer it in enough, when you’re brand new, even through your first year…

You don’t need to develop a crazy unique selling proposition

You just need to be the person who’s willing to stand for the needs of other people first.

And to be the person who’s willing to hop on the phone and actually listen to people.

Because guess what?

Even though there are other networkers using this strategy…

  1. There aren’t many willing to hop on the phone, who are building online
  2. You’ll very likely be the first person who’s ever hopped on the phone with your prospects, so you’ll automatically be different from everyone else in their mind

Again, being willing to talk to people on the phone, through video chat, or through private messaging is what’s gonna help you stand out more than anything else.

In a crowded, noisy online space…

Your willingness to directly connect with people is rare!

Believe me, it is.

It may seem like a lot of people are doing it, but only select leaders are doing it.

The majority are not!

And even the leaders are too busy to talk to everybody, which gives all of us an opportunity if we’re willing to pick up the phone.

Did you know that at EMP, every single customer gets three free coaching calls with our mentorship team?

So even at Elite Marketing Pro, this big multimillion dollar company, we are also willing to hop on the phone and talk to people at every stage of their journey with us.

That should give you a clue as to what you should be doing as well!

Now, hopefully you’re fired up and ready to implement this strategy.

So the next question is, do you…

Need people to talk to?

Because let’s face it, before you can start calling your prospects, you need prospects to call in the first place!

Unfortunately, this is an area where a lot of business owners initially struggle.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way.

In fact, in just 10 days, you can easily implement a lead generation strategy that will bring you fresh leads daily, like clockwork.

So if you’re having any trouble generating leads for your business or finding enough prospects to talk to…

Then I highly recommend signing up for my free online recruiting bootcamp.

You’ll see the exact online business building strategies I use to generate 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business builders into my business each month!
