Why Building a Brand Online Makes Recruiting Easier, Faster & More Convenient

If you’re a network marketing distributor, you may have been advised to…

“Build your business, not your brand.”

And quite frankly, I believe this is terrible advice and it hurts people.

What’s perplexing is I’ve heard this from the lips of leaders speaking from stage who’ve built big brands for themselves.

Not cool.

So if you’re trying to figure out ways of building your business online, because you’re tired of old school methods like home parties and hotel meetings, then this article by my mentor Ferny Ceballos is for you.

 

128192_Blog-Banner-Request_TW-02_092117 (1)

I was having a conversation with my friend, Rob Sperry, who’s a trainer and top earner in network marketing…

And I was sharing with him something REALLY PERPLEXING that another network marketing top earner said in front of a crowd of a few hundred people at a company event.

What was said was repeated over and over again like a mantra…

“Build your business, not your brand.”

I knew where this advice was coming from since many in the crowd had been building their business online and not exactly following the recommendations of the organization and it was essentially an attempt at warning people against not listening to their upline.

As I told the story, Rob jumped and said to me “I heard that too! I know exactly what you’re referring to!”

We both agreed that this was terrible advice. (And I’ll explain why in a second.)

That being said, it’s one thing to disagree with people in our profession. Happens all the time. People likely don’t always agree with me! Agreeing to disagree is one of the hallmarks of a civil society.

But the REALLY PERPLEXING part is that this was coming from someone who had built a big online brand, sells courses online, holds seminars, speaks at events worldwide, has a big social media following, does FB Lives, etc. etc.

This was very much a case of…

“Do as I say, not as I do.”

So if you’ve been trying to figure out ways of building your business online, because old-school methods like home parties and hotel meetings are not working, here’s what it actually means to “build a brand” and why the above advice is so terrible.

Your brand is your business!

It’s simple: every action you take in your business results in either…

  • Being more likable, or less likable
  • Having more credibility, or less credibility
  • Improving your reputation, or trashing it
  • Being memorable, or forgettable

Think about this: every person you talk to, you either leave either a good impression or a bad impression.

So if someone chooses to never talk to you again, because they think you’re creepy and weird after you tried to prospect them at a mall, then…

That’s your brand, in their eyes!

So with every action, you’re affecting your public image and your relationships in the world — which, in turn, all affect your brand.

And you can accelerate things by taking your business online, (that could be a good or bad thing), because social media allows you to make an impact quicker, more efficiently, and with more leverage.

Using methods we teach here at Elite Marketing Pro, you can reach out and connect with far more people than you EVER could with face-to-face prospecting or having home meetings.

The upside is that you can impact significantly more people by building online.

The downside is that if you are doing it wrong or in a sleazy way, you can destroy your reputation and the reputation of network marketing, that much faster!

A lot of people don’t know how to build online (without being annoying!)

Many distributors take the same awkward, repulsive recruiting strategies they’ve been taught to do offline, and make the problems worse online – and still produce zero results!

In the end, this ends up ruining their reputation.

They’re just doing social media recruiting all wrong.

They come off salesy and pushy, and before too long, people block them on social media.

Okay, so think about that for a second: what are they doing?

Well, they’re building their brand, just not in a good way.

Their brand is being defined as a “spammer.”

They are now that guy that people need to unfriend or block on social media.

That, at the end of the day in the context of business, is building a brand.

Thus my original point…

You can build a negative brand or a positive brand

It simply depends on how you conduct yourself.

If you approach building your business in a selfish and aggressive way, then your brand will be damaged and you’ll still get poor results, which is important because…

The results you produce in your business also affect your credibility.

And as you build your business and create more results, those results become a part of your brand, as now you’re associated with success.

Conversely, if you constantly creep people out and fail to create results, then that will be your brand and how you’re known to people – “the failure who keeps annoying us with his pyramid thing”.

This is especially true if you’re building online and interacting with other network marketers, as you will become known as that guy or that girl, who does network marketing all wrong and doesn’t know what they are doing.

On the flipside, 3-4 years into my network marketing career, I had personally recruited THREE 7-figure earners into my downline, because my BRAND as “Ferny Ceballos”, represented “online building”,”traffic”, “trust”, “results” and just being “a good guy”.

That was attractive to them at a time when they were looking for a new Network Marketing company.

No doubt I’ve made mistakes, but my overall body of work, made me attractive to them as a sponsor and they approached me!

Now before I give you the complete formula for the “magic branding pixie dust” which helped me recruit these three 7-figure titans, here’s what a brand isn’t…

Your brand is NOT a bunch of pretty pictures!

…or motivational quotes, or any of that stuff.

Your brand is all about the results you’re producing, the actions you’re taking, and the people you are affecting.

So even if you’re doing Facebook Lives, if you’re doing them wrong, then they’re a big waste of time and won’t do anything to serve your brand.

So you’ve got to be strategic with your message.

Returning to the terrible advice many distributors are being given…

“Build your business, not your brand.”

I think this advice is actually trying to get people to do this (equally terrible)…

Build your company’s brand, not your personal brand.

But here’s the thing:

Promoting your brand and your following VS the company’s products and the company’s opportunity, should not be in conflict.

In fact, by now you may have heard the VERY GOOD advice from leaders that GET IT…

You should NOT lead with your company’s products and your company’s name on social media.

Rather…

People shouldn’t even be able to figure out which company you’re with

…from your social media profile.

And why is that?

Because people join people and people buy from people in this profession.

Your brand is not this big intangible idea.

In addition to being likable and trustworthy…

Your brand is based on what people think you can do for them.

If you’re perceived as someone who can help people achieve their goals or solve a problem in their life, that means you are building a positive brand and people will want to join you or buy from you.

That ultimately serves the interest of the company, by helping you make more sales on their behalf.

On the other hand, when you post stuff about your company & products, in lieu of developing your brand, you are diminishing the role you play in the eyes of your followers.

Remember, people can literally go search the company name on Google without talking to you and buy the product from someone else or even join someone else.

By posting about your company, you are saying the company plays a bigger role in helping them than you do.

You’re just a salesperson – an unimportant commodity – they don’t need. In fact, if you are perceived as a salesperson, you are repelling your prospects!

Or they will read a bunch of negative stuff on Google and not want to talk to you.

Obviously, in a business that relies on trust and relationships, the prospect NEEDS YOU.

There is a time & place to talk about the company, but that’s only when you present the product or opportunity to someone, not when you are prospecting or marketing in public.

Create a little mystery and curiosity, by focusing on what you can do for people or help them with.

And if you haven’t figured it out already, all these lessons apply to building OFFLINE, as well as ONLINE.

DO NOT diminish the critical role you play as an advisor and expert in the eyes of your prospect.

Great networkers position themselves as advisors (not salespeople), who can help others get what they want.

Now, the reason I prefer building online is this…

“Old school” methods make true business-building nearly impossible if you’re a busy person

For instance, think about the time it takes to do a single home meeting.

If I do one home meeting — if I’m lucky — I might have 5 people there.

And most of the time, if I’m doing home meetings, I’m doing maybe two, three a week at most.

Now, think about the investment of time, one evening, 12 prospects, maybe 1 joins…

Or if you’re going to spend a couple hours doing 1-on-1’s!

That’s an even more inefficient way of doing things.

And think about it this way…

During that SAME two hours, you’re meeting with somebody at a coffee shop, or conducting a home meeting…

You could expose your business on the Internet to at least twelve people!

Meaning you talked to them about what you can help them accomplish and you referred them directly to whatever presentation process for enrolling them as a customer or new team member

So, the choice is this…

Introduce the business to one or two people…or 12 people…every two hours… any time of day?

Which one would you choose?

And that’s basically all we’re doing here at Elite Marking Pro, we’re teaching people how to connect with a lot more people, faster.

We teach how to brand on a mass scale where you can…

  • Reach literally millions of people
  • Scale your business to whatever heights you want
  • Build a brand that extends beyond your network marketing business
  • Create multiple streams of income (if you want)
  • Recruit en masse

Using our methods, with an online presentation, you can basically enroll a few hundred or even a few thousand people in one evening — once you’ve built your brand to that level.

Yes, it takes a little time to learn the skillsets, but that’s what we do here at Elite Marketing Pro.

So if you’d like to learn more about…

Online or Offline. It is the “battle royale” for recruiting.

Online vs. offline.

It can seem like the “battle royale” of our times when it comes to how you should build your business because folks in either corner are constantly slugging it out saying their way is best.

It can get ugly!

But what if it’s not either/or?

What if you could do both (…and get even better results to boot)?

As a network marketer, what are some of the things you’ve been told?

  • Create a list of 100 people
  • Talk to friends and family
  • Fake it until you make it
  • Go for “No”
  • “No” doesn’t mean “no forever”
  • The fortune is in the follow-up
  • It’s not selling, it’s sharing
  • Share with everybody within three feet
  • If they can fog a mirror, this would be a great opportunity for them
  • Give home presentations
  • Hit people up in the malls

These are all old-school, traditional, belly-to-belly ways to market.

What’s funny is that there are a lot of similarities here to how you should build your business online.

I am thrilled to let one of my mentors share with you her insight on how to blend “old school” network marketing with the greatest tool of the Twenty-first Century.

Here are thoughts from Chef Katrina, Elite Marketing Pro Community Insider.

The Online “Three-Foot Rule”

Especially if you’re first starting out, you should talk to everyone within “three feet” of you online.

No matter the social media platform, if someone connects with you, you should reach out and start networking.

For instance, on Facebook, you should send a personal message to anyone who…

  • Sends you a friend request
  • Likes or shares one of your posts
  • Comments on a post or an ad (more on this in a moment)

Ask them about their business and goals and see if you can determine what they’re struggling with.

The Online “List of 100”

Here at Elite Marketing Pro, we recommend using Facebook’s advertising platform to connect with people who are already invested in the network marketing industry.

…and thus aren’t skeptical your business is a “pyramid scheme” or “scam.”

You can make lists of targeted “interest groups” highly likely to respond to your offer—for instance, the followers of a big name guru like Tony Robbins or Robert Kiosaki.

So instead of making a list of 100 people who very likely aren’t interested in starting a business, now you’re actually talking to people who’ve been bitten by the “entrepreneurial bug.”

No more dealing with unresponsive friends and family members.

No more getting rejected by strangers in whatever strange land you find yourself prospecting.

Talking to people who are already interested is more than half the battle so your closing ratio will soar.

At the end of the day, though, traditional and online methods are similar, because much of the time you’re still going to hear “no.”

That’s just a fact—it’s still a number’s game.

But, it’s also true that “no” can simply mean it’s not the right time.

Hence the timeline advice…

The fortune is in the follow-up.

How Follow-Up Works Online

There are many forms follow-up can take online, and many of them are completely automated!

You can follow-up via email.

You can follow-up by providing content on your blog.

Follow-up can mean broadcasting a Facebook Live.

It’s a brave new world with today’s technology.

You’re not limited to the phone.

Social media is a highly-leveraged and largely automated follow-up channel.

You can also text message or host a webinar.

You have SO many options.

But what’s important to remember is that you’re still talking to people.

Traditional and online networking overlap each other in that you’re going to have to talk to people with either method.

Let me say that again…

You’re going to have to talk to people!

Because if you’re not…

  • Reaching out and talking to your leads,
  • Connecting with your audience,
  • Getting out there and making connections, and
  • Eventually automating everything possible

…you’re not building a real business.

You know, I was talking with a coaching client the other day.

One of the things this individual said was…

“This is a lot of hard work!”

Well, I’m going to be dead serious with you for a moment—it is hard work.

Whether you’re doing the traditional method of building your business or you’re building online, it’s still work.

Especially in your first year—you can’t avoid it, you can’t get around it, you can’t wish it away, you can’t hope there’s an easy button…

You just need to do the work.

I mean, seriously…

You can’t spell “networking” without “working!”

Your first year you’re online is the most critical in your business.

This is your year of building trust.

It tends to take a year of being online, a year of consistently being seen by your audience, a year of providing value, education, and training—for people to grow to trust you.

It’s easy to get distracted.

It’s easy to lose focus

Imagine this…

You’re teaching everybody how to build one business, and all of a sudden you veer off and start promoting something else (and then something else).

If you do that within your first year, you’re going to lose trust with your audience.

If you’re always looking for the next thing you won’t be able to focus on the task at hand.

So don’t waste time starting over again and again…

Commit to twelve solid months of delivering value to your audience

Think about it…

If you’re dating someone, you’ve got to commit to them.

When you’re in a relationship, you’ve got to show up every single day.

It’s the same dynamic with your audience:

You’ve got to show up, keep your word, and fulfill expectations.

The moment you disappear, the moment you veer off-course, the moment you come up with a new product (or service or offer) you’re going to break that trust.

And it’s hard to get back on track when you don’t show up.

So commit to the process, because…

You’re becoming the go-to authority they’re seeking

If you show up, you’ll become the trusted recommender.

So, it’s time to ask yourself…

  • Are you committed to staying the path?
  • Are are you committed to following through?

If you are, then don’t try to avoid the work.

  • Learn how to build those relationships!
  • Learn how to offer the presentation!
  • And learn how to follow-up with people using the tools available today.

Find out what’s going on in your prospects’ world and match your product to their need.

There’s always a problem—become the solution provider!

There are problems galore out there.

So become the master at solving problems and you’ll always be the go-to person—you’ll always be the person they want to join.

Blend online and offline to your utmost advantage!

You can…

  • Follow up easier through the Internet than you ever could before.
  • Easily connect with over 100 people every single day using the Internet.
  • Get more “nos” faster to get to your “yeses” sooner online.
  • Show people your presentation, without having to invite them to a hotel or home meeting.

And you can do it all online.

You can do so many things that traditionally done offline and blending them with the online world.

Sure, there are some technical skills you need to learn, and you’re going to get frustrated at first—that’s the experience we all have.

But you need to realize that if you’re reading this article today, you are among the smallest percentage of people that actually understands how to build a network marketing business online.

You are a minority in this industry (use it to your advantage!)

Give yourself twelve months.

Commit to the process and make sure you’re taking action every day.

It’s your opportunity right now to “embrace the blend” and be one of the pioneers in the network marketing space who are successfully building their businesses online and doing what it takes to move forward.

AMF_Banner_800x250Finally

You have the opportunity—right now—to be a part of the transformation of the network marketing industry.

After all, we know that’s where the industry is going.

There’s no way around it.

In ten years, you won’t even recognize the industry.

But one thing will always remain the same: network marketing is one of the most powerful ways a person in a nine-to-five job can step out and start learning what it’s like to build their own business.

So be a pioneer.

Get out there and connect with people, make some mistakes, and have some fun!

How often do you make someone feel important?

And why should you make them feel important?

If you are Dale Carnegie, it is to help you influence them.
Or you may want your motive to be a little less self-serving. I can relate.
But if you are like me you want to influence others with great products and great income producing opportunity.Vip Keys Show Influential Of Very Important Person
We believe that what we are sharing has the potential to improve lives, don’t we?
And yet, if you are like me, you are tempted to hold back because you will also benefit.
Can you relate? I thought so.
I have one piece of advice for you.
Get over it.

You have something you are supposed to share. Get on with it. And while you are at it, learn to do it effectively.

Dale Carnegie has this book you may have heard of, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
One of his points was that when we make people feel important that we influence them.
Cool or manipulative? I vote for cool.
Because when was the last time someone made you feel important. Was that not awesome?
So, as we begin a national holiday let me challenge you to make one person a day feel important.
Start making that a habit without looking for ways to benefit. Just become that person that makes others feel important.
I suspect that we could change the world that way.
So, here are some ways that you can make someone feel important:
  1. Pay attention to people.listen-to-me-sign-shows-notice-or-message_GkY4xNwO.jpg
    1. Turn off the electrical device that has your attention, look them in the eye, and listen to them talk.
    2. Notice the name of your cashier and ask them how their day is going, ask them if they must work this weekend, thank them if they do.
    3. When your family member speaks listen, express interest in what they say.
  2. Be respectful.
    1. Open doors.
    2. Thank other when they open a door for you.
    3. Say you’re welcome.
    4. Wait patiently in a long line.
  3. Express admiration for people.Great Job Note Shows Praise Or Approval
    1. Point out when someone does a good job, perhaps even letting their boss know.
    2. Congratulate someone who has just achieved a business or education goal.
    3. Tell someone that you have noticed their ability to do something.
  4. Ask questions about them.
    1. Give them a chance to talk about themselves.
    2. Focus on what they say.
    3. Keep eye contact and body language focused on them.
  5. Tie your questions with action.
    1. If they are important, you will act when you learn of a need.
    2. Your action may be providing something yourself.
    3. Or it may be referring them to someone who is equipped to help.
  6. Include them.
    1. Invite them to events
    2. Ask them to join you for coffee
    3. Ask their advice
  7. Treat them like your dog treats you.Cute dog
    1. Light up with a smile when you see them instead of wagging your tail.
My challenge is for this holiday weekend. But I hope that you and I will keep it going long after we get back to work.
Oh, that reminds me, do you get the weekend off? Or do you need to work?
Whichever, please be safe.

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.

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

When you venture off to do something different, you’re going to meet resistance.

This is as true in business as in life.

And network marketing is certainly no exception.

So to help you avoid any trouble with your company or your upline, this post is a preemptive warning for anyone building their business online.

My focus is to detail how you can mitigate any potential issues in advance.

This is especially important if you’re already producing a significant income with your company, because you obviously don’t want to do anything to compromise that source of revenue.

So to kick things off, let’s start with something that should be obvious…

Bottom line: you agreed to your company’s policies when you signed up to be a distributor.

You should have read them then, of course.

But if you didn’t, you need to go back and read them now.

Policies vary from company to company, so don’t assume they’re the same as another company you may have worked with in the past.

Some companies are such dinosaurs, unfortunately, and are so “old school,” that they won’t let you do anything aside from your network marketing opportunity.

In my opinion, you don’t want to be tied down to a company with that policy.

So if you’re brand new in a company like that, I suggest looking around at other options.

But, if you already have a significant income, then you’re going to have to give your future plans some serious thought.

You’ll want to reflect on your options and ask yourself…

“Is it worth it to go online when I have an income to lose and my company policy doesn’t support online activity?”

You may decide, “No, not worth the risk.”

Conversely, you may instead decide, “Yes, I want to go online and build my personal brand.”

It’s your choice.

Now, if your company’s policies are restrictive, but you decide to go online anyway, I’m going to give you some tips that might help you stay out of trouble.

But first, you’ll need to know what you’re dealing with…

  • Does your company allow you to build (anything) online at all?
  • Do they allow you to build a brand in a related niche?
  • Are you planning to build a brand around network marketing, or build a following in, say, health and wellness, or another niche?
  • If so, do they see that as a conflict?

Some companies are okay with you building other opportunities and some are not.

This should be clearly stated in their policies.

Note that some companies may view affiliate marketing as another opportunity (though they shouldn’t).

So be extra vigilant and…

Read all policies as they relate to another opportunity

Pay attention to whether you’re allowed to do any form of affiliate marketing, which is promoting other people’s products on the Internet and thus earning multiple streams of income.

It’s going to be pretty cut and dry in terms of what they allow and what they don’t.

You’re going to have to make some business decisions as to how you want to move forward.

Not emotional ones, but business decisions as to what you want your future to look like, so you can answer the question…

“Does my company fit into the equation given their policies?”

This can be a tough crossroads in certain instances.

But it’s necessary to move forward.

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.

Next up…

Here’s another important question:

Does your upline spread misinformation?

Because you must distinguish between actual policy and misinformation.

If your upline is not open to building online, and they are “anti-Internet,” it can make your life hard.

You know the type I’m talking about…

They just opened a Facebook account last year, they barely know how to use it, and they look silly on social media.

Thus, it doesn’t work for them, so they assume it doesn’t work for anyone.

And if they’re clearly anti-Internet, they’re going to push you not do it yourself.

They think, “the Internet is the devil.”

So they’re going to spread misinformation and tell you how you might get your account shut down.

This may or may not be true.

Again…

Read your company’s policies to know if your upline is telling you is the truth

You also want to look at how influential a particular person in your upline is.

How much sway do they have with the company?

In some cases they have a lot; in some cases they don’t.

So be familiar with both your company policies and your upline.

Next, here’s a very important way to avoid problems when building online…

This is a matter of integrity.

Whatever you’re doing—maintain a strict policy that you’re not going to sell or try to solicit people from your company.

Yes, this includes marketing other products and affiliate opportunities to them.

So if someone in your company approaches you asking for help related to building online, the wise thing to say is…

“Sorry, there is a conflict here. I want to be at integrity with our company’s policies, so I can’t sell you anything that’s related to these markets and so if you want to check it out, go to the home page of xyz affiliate program or talk to this person…”

Make no mistake, I’m 100% suggesting you…

Refer them to someone else!

I know it’s going to be really hard for you to give up that sale.

Some people demand a leader, so you’ll want to help them.

And you might take on the risk, especially if you’re not making much of an income in your network marketing business, because you wouldn’t feel you had a lot to lose.

You might also just be a rebel and want to do things their own way.

I get it.

And I understand the desire to want to help somebody even if they’re in your company.

If you’re really committed to their success, you might even feel like…

“Hey, there’s no one else that’s going to help them more than me.”

I get that mindset, but these are some of the decisions you have to make.

So if you want to stay on the safe side…

Don’t sell anything to anyone in your company!

Don’t sell them your products training.

And don’t sign them up for any affiliate programs—even if they approached you.

You can actually go so far as to put a disclaimer on your website saying you can’t work with anyone in your company, due to a conflict of interests.

Bottom line…

Refer them to someone else and avoid any potential conflicts.

Next up is a strategy most have never considered…

A personal alias is a brand run under an pen name or persona—so it’s you, but it’s not you.

For example…

Eben Pagan has been in the Internet marketing space for a very long time.

He started another business called “Double your Dating” – it’s a dating niche and he did it under an alias called David DeAngelo.

It was still him on camera, but he used an alias name.

It was a way to create a different Google search term and separate his name from his dating brand.

That way he could create entrepreneurial training in the Internet marketing space and it wouldn’t get intermingled with his products in the dating niche.

You can create two separate brands this way

I know a few people that have done that and they’ve done it successfully.

You can choose to work under an alias if you think it’s the right choice for you.

It creates a clear line of distinction, so if there are any issues you can demonstrate that you legally tried to separate one business from the other, by operating under a different brand.

The final thing that I’d recommend when trying to avoid potential issues is…

People like to fall in love and commit to their company no matter what, I get it.

I was with an old company that had very archaic policies, but I also wanted to be the first to use online methods.

And I was so committed to making the Internet work for this particular company, I said…

“I want to be the first; I want to show them that it works and then hopefully they’ll see the light and follow my lead.”

But unfortunately, that’s not how it usually works.

Most big companies don’t care about how much money you’re making for them.

They care about their bottom line collectively as a whole, and if it ain’t broke as a whole, they’re not going to try to fix it

And they’re going to try to protect their business, first and foremost—as they know it.

That becomes the conflict between the company and the lonely distributor (or even an upline member who’s a top earner).

Their priority will always be about their bottom line

…not your bottom line.

That’s tough to admit, but it’s just business.

They’re protecting their income and they’re not going to make any changes that might radically affect their business.

They’re operating from a scarcity standpoint.

And especially if they’re building internationally, and they don’t really need the US business, that becomes a tough obstacle.

So, be with a cool company if you’re going to build online.

It helps a ton.

To recap…

  • Know your company’s policies
  • Know your upline
  • If you choose to go against your company’s policies, consider using an alias to show you created a separate brand
  • Choose your company carefully and join a cool company
  • Don’t sell to people working within the same company!

Again, I know that’s last one is tempting because you have a following in your company and you want to basically take advantage of that.

But some companies are cool with that, and some are not.

Now, here’s my take on the online dilemma; in my opinion…

Building online is the best security you can create for your business

Make no mistake, though…

It may create some conflicts or issues, depending on your upline and the company.

But it’s totally worth it.

I’ve personally made millions of dollars online and I have control of all the income.

So consider your options…

  • Maybe you may want to build a Facebook following?
  • Maybe you want to sell affiliate products?
  • Or maybe you want to sell your own training programs?

No one can take these potential streams of income from you!

When you build an email list, with a personal brand in whatever market or niche that’s related to what you’re doing, you’ve created the ultimate security.

Why?

Because you own your brand

No affiliate program is ever going to kick you out or get upset because you’re promoting some other affiliate program.

That’s not the way affiliate programs work.

You don’t have the same worries with that stream of income.

If you decide to do mentoring or coaching as a direct selling trainer, or in the health and wellness niche, it’s not a problem.

The income is yours.

The more streams of income you add, the more security you have.

For me, the risks outweigh the rewards.

And ultimately, that’s how you’re going to attain true freedom.

Remember…

With a network marketing company, you’re still an employee!

You don’t own anything.

The only thing you receive is a paycheck.

You don’t even own your downline, your company owns your downline; they’re not going to give you dominion over your downline.

Trust me, if they decide that you’re no longer a fit and they decide to cancel your account, you can’t take your down line with you.

And if you try to solicit them they will bring the hammer down on you.

You have no control.

But if you sign up for my free online recruiting bootcamp, I will show you how to change your situation – and in turn, your life.

You will learn how to create your own personal brand.

And you can go deeper into all these subjects and decide for yourself if building online is for you.

You’ll discover how to…

  • Get more leads,
  • Use Facebook ads,
  • Create your own brand,
  • Build your own following, and
  • Assure a secure income—no matter what happens with your network marketing company.

So if you’re ready to start learning the ins-and-outs of the entire online business-building process…

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

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.
