Stop Repelling, Start Attracting Quality Leads With The Reverse Invite Method

What is better than trying to convince family and friends to look at your business? AGAIN!?

Attracting folks who want to look at your business. Right?

Stop repelling people. Start attracting them to your business with the Reverse Invite method!

Whit and Cari Higham had a discouraging start to building their business. Then they discovered a way to attract somewhere between 15 and 20 people a week.

You heard right. Folks were asking them for “more info” about what they were doing.

People were inviting themselves to take a look at Whit and Cari’s business.

And we can do the same.

It all starts with creating curiosity.

Instead of being an infomercial for our company we must showcase ourselves. Yes. Showcase ourselves.

Because we are unique.

And it is our uniqueness that will attract people.

So, embrace andshowcase your unique qualities, traits, personality.

As you do that, you make people want to reach out to YOU.

The neat thing is that Whit and Care are unique and attract lots of folks to them. But they won’t attract the people that you will attract because you are unique – you are different from Whit and Cari.

Now a days, Facebook is the best platform for showcasing our uniqueness.

Facebook advertising will make the process go faster but you can also use a lot of organic, non-paid stuff.

Andthis method works for your personal profile, your business or fan page and ingroups.

Wherever you use it, TheReverse Invite principles are always the same!

Startwith a post to create curiosity.

There are two types ofcuriosity posts that work best:

  1. Basic,text-based with picture
  2. FacebookLive

You can start doing unpaid, organic, free exposure in the NewsFeed if money is tight.

But when you invest your money to boost a post you get it accessto a global audience. That is when you can begin to scale and create leverage.

Sohow do you create a post that generates enough curiosity for people to reachout to you?

For many who have mastered the Reverse Invite, Facebook Lives are a “go to” strategy.

But I have also seen effective posts with written copy and an intriguing picture.

Whether you’re using a basic post or a Facebook Live, Whit and Cari say just ask yourself:

“What do people need to know about what I’m promoting to get them to enroll, or to move forward?”

“The answer to that question will be different for everybody. It might be one, two, even three things that people need to know. What’s holding them back or keeping them stuck?What critical information are they missing to solve their issue?What revelation or realization do they need to move forward? Find those things. Dig deep into whatever PAIN or PROBLEM they’re going through right now.”

Then…

You need to tell them what actionthey should take to learn more.

  • You could ask them to comment “more info” or
  • You could ask them to follow a link to get more information or
  • You might tell them to message you.

And thatis how you reverse the invite.

You havegiven them information.

You havelead them to the point where they think, “This is what I need to solve my problemand end my pain.”

And theywill invite themselves.

So, let’stalk about a frequent question.

Should you share your product on yourFacebook Lives?

And the answer is: absolutely, positively, NO!

Of course, that is not what our company tells us, but think about this.

It’s NOT your product or service that makes you unique.

You are, and should be, excited about your product or service.

But people who see your posts aren’t. They don’t care about your products because they don’t know enough about your products – yet.

First, they must know you and what makes you unique.

You need foryour posts to introduce yourself to them.

Explain how your product or service helps reduce or eliminate the pain they’re experiencing.

For instance, let’s talk about weightloss.

People are NOT interested in learninghow to lose weight.

They already KNOW how to lose weight.

They want to know how your product is DIFFERENT from any other product they have seen.

They are interested in your UNIQUEposition about your products.

When that happens, you can walk themthrough YOUR process and they will say, “Yes, I need to talk to YOU about this.”

This is a pivotal moment. Once they say that first “Yes” then you can have the conversation about why they need what you have. Make sense?

Gettingpeople to the first “Yes” is the most important part.

In your conversation with them, you will talk about the problems they’re having. You’ll show you understand and can relate to those problem. And then you’ll tell them there’s a solution—WITHOUT giving it away.

You’ll ask them to DO SOMETHING to get the information theywant.

In otherwords, you’ll set it up so that they have to take action and reach out to youto get the info they want.

It’s all about creating the curiosity.

And people are fascinated by stories.

You may have heard that “facts tell, stories sell.”

People in network marketing hear that all the time. Yet few people understand how this really works.

But your compelling story will make people want to get on board.

Don’t make the mistake many networkers make. They think that a compelling story needs to include a lavish lifestyle. They think they need to prove their amazing success in network marketing.

Even if it is the gospel truth, don’t use it. It annoys your family and friends. It annoys strangers.

You can end up repelling with that kind of compelling story.

For example, one couple to make it to the top rank in my company showed picture after picture of their affluence.

I was not only annoyed but offended by the seeming decadence.

I knew they had worked long hours for years. They made personal sacrifices to get where they were and it was their money to spend. Still their “compelling story” troubled me. It didn’t inspire to duplicate it.

So how do you keep from annoying people?

How can you attract people instead of repelling them?

Well, here’s another simple truth…

Your company, whatever system you’re using, did not get you where you are.

Your company or product may be the vehicle, but YOU did it

Instead of focusing on your product, service or company, focus on yourself. Focus on you as a unique individual with a unique story.

Focus on making YOU that unique selling point so that people reach out to you.

It doesn’t matter what company you’re with.

It doesn’t matter what product you promote.

Part of my compelling story includes my mom. As her caregiver, there are tons of people who can relate to my story and me.

As Cari and Whit tell us:

YOU create a bond and develop rapport with people through your story, through your posts, through your Facebook Lives, so your prospects will say…

“I like Whit and Cari. I want to work with these people.” The bond YOU create with people is going to take you much further with them than your product ever will. Think about it this way… When we first started, people used to come up to us and say… “Hey, you’ve been with this company for a little while – how’s everything going?”

I remember answering with a lie. I’d lie right to their face and say… “Oh, you know, our whole lives have changed. It’s going great!” The truth was that I was thinking…

“Oh my God – this freaking sucks! I not only haven’t made any money, I’m LOSING money since I started!”

Like the true professionals they are Whit and Cari turned things around.

They started telling the TRUE story about what they were going through!

When they started telling the truth people were disarmed.

People began to connect with them.

Their presence started to shift. They had posture that had eluded them before.

People found what they were experiencing valuable.

Ultimately, the “big secret” is to come from a place of SERVICE.

When they told people their life was “amazing,” they knew they were BS’ing.

They saw right through it.

“Yeah, that’s funny because you still live in your mother-in-law’s basement and your car looks like it hit a million animals, so obviously your life isn’t that amazing.”

People saw right through them.

It came through in their energy… body language… “presence.”

When they changed their focus to service, to asking…

“How can we serve the people we’re trying to attract? How can we bring value to their lives?”

Suddenly their circumstances shifted—quickly!

The more authentic you are, the more you focus on bringing service and providing value, you become that servant-leader, and that’s when people come and want to join you.

All you need is to share the truth about your story.

Don’t say…

“Yeah we’re making a ton of money. We’re doing this and buying that. Here are all our credentials about what we’ve done.”

Just tell the truth.

“Hey, here’s where we are. This is what we’re doing now, and this is what’s happening now. These are the results we’ve had. This is what’s working for us. You can make it work, too. Let us show you how to do that.”

It’s that simple.

This is what’s called “Attraction Marketing”

Gain an Unfair Advantage to Grow Big in 2020

Yikeys!

Another year is dissolving!

How are your business goals doing?

Do you need to listen to your upline and take all out massive action in the next 90 days. They are urging you . . .

“Now is your chance to get the advantage!”

“Now is your chance to build momentum!”

“Work hard now and you will be ahead of those who don’t.”

“Go for the Nos!”

I heard variations of this challenge many times.

And September through November is certainly a great time to get “growing.”

Those who see team growth now will have the advantage in January.

Unfortunately, it is easier said than done – getting this advantage.

I was challenged to go back to my list.

I was told to double, even triple, the number of calls I made each day.

As with most of my upline’s advice I saw the wisdom of their strategy. Of course, those who work harder will do better than those don’t.

  • Make more calls.
  • Schedule more home meetings.
  • Power through my reluctance to hear the cool reaction of family and friends to my invitation to one more home meeting

You know what I mean. I heard a few no’s but mostly I heard the strain in the relationships that meant so much to me.

As much as I wanted to gain an advantage . . .

As much as I wanted to grow my team . . .

As much as I wanted to be successful, I struggled with calling my list one more time.

Thankfully, we have another choice my upline never mentioned.

We can have what my mentor calls “an unfair advantage.”

He is talking about attraction marketing.

☑️ Attraction marketing uses the internet to generate leads.

☑️ Attraction marketing makes you the hunted, not the hunter.

☑️ Attraction marketing attracts people who want what you offer.

☑️ Attraction marketing attracts people who want what you offer.

☑️ Attraction marketing has freed me . . .

  • Freed me from calling family and friends unless I want to find out how they are. . . .
  • Freed me from scheduling home meetings. . . .
  • Freed me from posting before and after pictures in my swimsuit.

It is an “unfair advantage” I can embrace. You can follow your upline’s advice for the next 90 days . . . Or you can gain an “unfair advantage.”

Are you ready to hear it from the man who introduced me to the “unfair advantage.” He explains it so well. Here is my mentor Ferny Ceballos.

Attraction Marketing: Your “Unfair Advantage”

Would you like to know how attraction marketing can help you rapidly grow your network marketing business, completely obliterate rejection, and give you a completely “unfair advantage” when it comes to prospecting and recruiting?

Stay tuned if that sounds appealing, because that’s precisely what I’m going to share with you below.

First, let me ask you this…

Have you ever seen, at some point in your network marketing career, a well-respected, already-popular, and successful person join your network marketing company and almost overnight had dozens—if not hundreds—of people join their organization?

These people seem to create “instant” success, right?

All they seem to do is make a few phone calls, send a text or two, and a bunch of people join their team—just like that!

This is a phenomenon in network marketing I like to call the “unfair advantage” and it’s crucial in attraction marketing

brand building is unfair

These “overnight success” stories might even be brand new to the network marketing industry, but I can promise you this…

These people were already successful or popular in their day-to-day life.

Perhaps they were a successful professional or upstanding citizen in their community with a positive reputation.

These people already had a following and were highly regarded by their peers.

People already knew, liked, and trusted them.

And here’s why this is so important…

People follow WINNERS!

And that, believe it or not, is the basis of branding.

A brand is a following, a reputation, and results.

Now, depending on your background, you might not have had that kind of reputation or a huge network of connections when you started.

In fact, MOST of us don’t start out with an unfair advantage.

But imagine being able to create your own unfair advantage—even if you’re at zero right now!

It’s entirely possible.

And it’s all about leveraging attraction marketing.

Attraction marketing can help anyone—regardless of their background, create that unfair advantage.

How?

Your unfair advantage comes from building your brand using attraction marketing

people follow winners

It comes from investing in yourself so that you can continue growing your value.

And it also comes from investing in your followers and helping them grow.

This is the secret to attraction marketing.

The more you invest in yourself, the more you attract a larger following, and the more you invest in your recruits, the more they duplicate their own followings.

I’m about to walk you through the three phases we lead our members through here at Elite Marketing Pro to help them create their own unfair advantage.

But before I do, here’s a little dose of reality.

When most people hear us say we can, “Help you rapidly expand your network marketing business,” they’re thinking…

“Oh, they’re going to show me how to attract more prospects and recruit new people now, now, now… Oh goodie… gimme, gimme, gimme.”

The mindset this response conveys is that of people expecting something for nothing.The mindset this response conveys is that of people expecting something for nothing.

But here’s the thing…

Whenever people with an “unfair advantage” join anything, other people follow them…

respect the skillsets

Because they’ve paid their dues.

They’ve invested in themselves and they’ve invested in OTHERS over time.

So, when they pull the trigger on a particular opportunity, they’ll have a constant flow of new people joining their business because they not only have those connections, but they’ve also come with the ability to continue to expand their network.

But what if you could create that kind of following online, even if you are currently a nobody?

The kind of following that means you would never run out of prospects — ever again.

Would that be something you’d be interested in learning?

And if I said, because you are a nobody and starting from scratch, it would likely take you six months or even a year to build a big enough online following and network capable of feeding what would quickly become a six-figure network marketing business…

So I’m telling upfront that it will take a little time to ramp things up… would that still be ok?So I’m telling upfront that it will take a little time to ramp things up… would that still be ok?

I mean six months to a year, is still a heck of a lot faster than it’d take you to get to six figures holding home parties, home meetings, 1-on-1s and all the old school stuff… right?

Well, that is what Attraction Marketing is!

So without further adieu, let me share our roadmap for building a six-figure brand in three phases…

First, let me make this plain: network marketing is one skillset and attraction marketing is another.

You need to respect these skillsets and master them.

Knowing how to train people, build community, and develop leaders are network marketing skills.

The attraction marketing skillset involves online skills to automate what can be automated and what can’t be automated, at least make those activities much efficient, faster, and more leveraged.

The blending of these two skillsets is what makes attraction marketing so amazing.

But you’re not going to be a master of attraction marketing in two weeks, and that’s ok.

What we do is have you start with “training wheels.”

At Elite Marketing Pro, we don’t tell you to build your entire online following right out of the gate.

That’s like taking you and your bike to the top of the hill and saying, “see you at the bottom!”

Instead, you start with “Attraction Marketing Training Wheels.”

By that, I mean we’ve already created an attraction marketing online system that’s proven and tested to help you start building your network and attract prospects.

You can leverage what we’ve already created and…

Focus on learning — and mastering — just one thing

That one thing is in my opinion, the number one skillset in modern network marketing…

  • Sponsored Social Media Posts

Using sponsored social media posts (primarily on Facebook) you will learn how to attract a never-ending supply of prospects.

And once those prospects engage with your posts, the attraction marketing system converts them to leads – meaning they will have submitted their contact information so you can follow-up.

You can reach out to them, you can e-mail them, and you can private message them on Facebook.

They gave you permission.

That puts you leaps and bounds ahead of most traditional network marketers.

Starting with this one critical skill – Sponsored Posts – you start the process of rapidly building your following.

But in the beginning, this following won’t know you very well yet, so don’t expect people to be throwing money at you.

Fortunately, we’ll be giving them tons of value to keep them engaged and teach you a few things you can do every day.

This helps build the rapport with them that you’ll need.This helps build the rapport with them that you’ll need.

Plus the cool thing is that you’re able to make money from these followers (even before they join your business) cause we’re going to teaching them about attraction marketing on your behalf and you earn commissions if they invest in any of our courses, that puts money back in your pocket.

That helps you cover your operating costs during this initial phase which can realistically last three to six months.

Imagine having your auto-ship paid for, your business tools paid for, and your company event tickets paid for from the beginning!

Then it’s time to move into Phase 2.

In Phase 1, you’ve started to build a following.

You now have results. You now have some prospects in your network, and maybe you’ve referred a few sales and earned commissions.

Regardless of how many leads or new team members or sales you’ve achieved, the big win is this:

You’ve attracted people to converse and interact with you.

You can honestly tell people…

“Yes, I’m attracting leads every single day.”

Because it’s true.

This marks the beginning of building your brand, cause you’re getting results and naturally, your leads will want to know how you are doing it. That positions you as an attractive leader.

During this new phase, you start taking over piece by piece, little by little, your own attraction marketing system. That’s what we call…

Taking Over Your List (or Following)

Now the messages & value being delivered to your prospects start coming from you, not us.

You start to provide your own value to others, cause you’ve started to figure out this attraction marketing stuff, and you’ll know how to help others do what you did.

You send them emails, videos, and links to your own blog posts. You’ll also share whatever other useful information you create.

That helps you build relationships with people.

They get to know you. You develop a reputation for being a leader.

This is called investing in your followers, so the value of that following grows.

Now, you’ll start following the 80/20 rule.

  • You’ll spend 80% of your time and energy delivering value
  • And you’ll spend 20% of your time recruiting & promoting your business

Perhaps once or twice a month, you’ll hold an online presentation and invite people to check out what you’re doing. By doing this, you’ll see how they might be able to work with you as part of your team.

At the end of the presentation, invite them to apply to work with you.

Then you’ll interview and select the people that you want to work with.

That’s right: no more convincing! You are now interviewing and only working with people you like!

As your following grows, the number and quality of people coming through that application process increases.

Now you’re in “unfair advantage” territory.

Now you’re only talking to the serious leads – the ones who WANT to work with you

Phase 2 can take 6 – 12 months to fully mature.

But that is totally freaking awesome because in the process, guess what?

You’re still earning money by offering your new prospects (those that haven’t been in your network long) some of our products and you earn commissions.You’re still earning money by offering your new prospects (those that haven’t been in your network long) some of our products and you earn commissions.

This part is key, because not only are you earning money, these buyers will become your most valuable prospects because a) they are willing to invest in themselves and b) they will be getting trained in attraction marketing so they can be competent online business builders when they are ready to join.

Speaking of which, as a little time passes…

The number of people coming into your network marketing business will grow steadily.

But most importantly, you’re creating an asset, consisting of…

  • Your following
  • Your own e-mail & phone list
  • Your own unfair advantage through social media

As your brand grows, you enter the final phase of our Attraction Marketing Roadmap.

You’ll know when you transition into this phase.

It happens when you discover your skills, your brand, and your results are growing so much that you start attracting influencers – the “whales.”

Industry leaders start seeing your content, and they start following you.

Ultimately, they will see the value of working with you and will reach out to connect.

Why?

Network marketing is a business built on timing.

If you’re attracting leaders, and something is “off” about their company’s financial health, management, or integrity – guess who they’ll join?

Because you’ve developed your own attraction marketing skillset, and have demonstrated results, value, and integrity, leaders will want to join you when it’s time for a change.

I’ve seen this happen many times because let’s face it – strong leaders & good people can’t control the decisions their company executives make. Often times, those decisions lead to trouble and they gotta make a big move…

Let me share some of the results our community members are accomplishing in Phase 3.

Brandy Shaver joined us a few years ago

She lived in a small town, built a small team, and over the course of her first year made about $20,000 dollars in network marketing.

Not bad, right?

But because she lived in a small town, her team dwindled.

She ran out of prospects and ended up having to drive quite a few miles to prospect, recruit, and train her team.

She was ready to quit.

Then she found us and pretty much started from zero.

With hardly any computer skills, Brandy now has…

  • 17,000+ leads on her e-mail list
  • 17,000+ followers on social media
  • Produced over 1,251 customers
  • Enrolled, using attraction marketing, 133 people into her organization
  • Sponsored three top earners into her organization – two of them six-figure earners, and one recent seven-figure earner who chose to come out of retirement to join her
  • Multiple streams of income

Brandy is now attracting whales in the industry, and every single one of those whales reached out to her, looking for a home.

She never poached or prospected them.

They joined her because they saw the value in her attraction marketing skillset.

Here’s another example.

Whit and Cari Higham were not in a great place when they started with attraction marketingWhit and Cari Higham were not in a great place when they started with attraction marketing

…to put it mildly!

Living in Cari’s parents’ basement, they couldn’t afford to buy groceries, much less their own place and had 2 babies to care for.

After two years of working with us, Whit and Cari now have:

  • 26,683 total leads over several platforms
  • 16,000+ Social media followers
  • Generated 1000+ customers
  • Personally enrolled 67 people into their network marketing business
  • Sponsored four six-figure leaders into their organization

Not bad, right?

And here’s one more…

You might know Julie Burke

Julie was already a six-figure earner in network marketing having built without attraction marketing over 4 years, but a bad situation with her company resulted in her starting over with a new company.

Because we helped her build her brand the previous year, she was able to recover quickly.

When we started with Julie, she had a 2,000 social media followers due to her own hard work and hustle prospecting on social media the previous 4 years.

Over the course of a year and a half, Julie has…

  • Built an e-mail list of 50,000+
  • Grown to over 53,000+ social media followers

And within 5 months of joining her new company, Julie…

  • Sponsored 6 six-figure and 4 seven-figure leaders into her organization
  • Passively enrolls ~25 people every month into her business

Those results within 18 months are pretty freaking awesome!

Here’s my attraction marketing story…

I spent my first year with attraction marketing in the training wheels phase and made about $10,000 first year in online network marketing.

I was learning the system, and getting familiar with the skillset (Phase 1).

The next year I got serious about building my brand and by the end of that year was able to quit my day job. (Phase 2).

A year after that is when I started landing the whales (Phase 3).

Those three years led to a six-figure business in network marketing, and ultimately my first 7-figure year by 2012.

Today my home businesses have collectively grossed over 20 million dollars.

But these results – mine, Julie, Brandy, Cari, & Whit – also reflect a level of skill that needed to be acquired through hard work, study, implementation, and determination.

It’s not gonna happen overnight and only you can determine whether it can happen at all.

If some of you, like Julie, want to take on things sooner and faster, that’s okay.

Others, like me, might spend an entire year in the training wheels phase. (I’m overly analytical, lol)Others, like me, might spend an entire year in the training wheels phase. (I’m overly analytical, lol)

There’s nothing wrong with that.

With attraction marketing, you’ll learn and grow at your own pace

It is not a race.

Now you know a bit about how we work, and why attraction marketing is by far the best way to build a network marketing business, in my professional opinion.

Find Your Team Without Being “That Person.”

You can find your team without being “that person.”

You know “that person”.

The person who ambushes friends to get them to a home meeting. The one who calls family and friends over and over with each new “exciting” announcement.

I did not want to be “that person” and yet the training I got from my up line made me feel like I was “that person.”

I remembered way back when I got an invitation to see a “project” an acquaintance said would interest me.

I found myself in a living room with other people I didn’t know. We were all asked to share our hopes and dreams.

It seems like it took an hour. Finally – we learned that we were being introduced to a network marketing opportunity. It seems like it took an hour. Finally – we learned that we were being introduced to a network marketing opportunity.

I was fuming.

I felt used, deceived, angry.

I never wanted to see that man again. I lost respect for him. He was not honest about what he invited me to.

And I never, never wanted to be “that person.”

And yet there I was!

My up line taught me to give as little info as possible.

My up line knew most people would say no if they had more information.

And I chose to trust my up line. And I chose to trust my up line.

I feared my friends and family would say no.

And I needed people to buy my product and join my team.

So I followed the instructions. I rationalized that my family and friends really did need what I was selling.

But I felt deceitful. Misleading. Underhanded. Untrustworthy.

I felt like a failure too.

I went to all the events and got pumped up.

I bought promotional items with a new excitement and hope.

But all the sales samples and gadgets couldn’t overcome the inevitable truth.

I felt like “that person.”

And I never felt good about it.

And it kept me from succeeding.

It is hard to embrace something that makes you feel self serving.It is hard to embrace something that makes you feel self serving.

No wonder my results were unimpressive.

But there is another way. We don’t have to be “that person.”

Today my friend and mentor shared with me that when she opened her email, she had 17 new requests about joining her team!!!

These are people who have been attracted to her. Not people she has been tricking into hearing her spell.

My results aren’t quite as impressive – YET.

But I am using her same strategy and getting requests from strangers.

That’s because I started working online instead of offline.

And I didn’t take offline skills and use them online.

We’ve seen that strategy and it looks spammy – sort of the thing “that person” would post.

With the strategy my friend/mentor and I are using, you get to be YOU – genuine YOU – enhanced YOU.

YOU kick “that person” to the curb and YOU thrive and grow.

Curious?

Here is where my friend and mentor and I got started: http://bit.ly/cjsamfbootcamp

So, how does it work you may be asking. Here it is in three steps.

First, you need to create a presence on the internet.

We call it branding ourselves.

When I started with my company I learned to brand the product and the company.

That works great for the company. Not so much for you and me.

Here’s why.

I can convince someone that Product ABC is awesome and the person I convince can buy it from Distributor XYZ – not me!

Why would that happen?

They know, like and trust, Distributor XYZ more than they do me.

That is why we create an online presence. So people get to know, like and trust us.

It takes a bit of time. But when you create an online presence, you create a group who will follow you where ever you go.

And they will want to do what you are doing, buy what you are selling.

For more information about building your online presence read this blog.
Attraction Marketing: The Roadmap to Building a Online Brand in Network Marketing.

Second, find a strategy that is working for a lot of people and then connect with those people.

One of the things that my up line taught was this: You are the average of the five people you spent the most time with.

They were quoting Jim Rohn. He understood our environment influences us more than we realize.

Whatever your “inner circle” believes and does will have an impact on you.

So, find people who are building a team with methods you are comfortable with. Hang out with them as much as you can.

I am using a strategy that has worked for many.

It is working for me.

And I am comfortable with it and enjoy using it.

I no longer feel like “that person.”

Feel free to hang out with me on my Facebook business page – https://www.facebook.com/theconniesuarez/

I share what is working for me.

Comment on posts I make. You can share my posts with your page.

And you will also see comments of others.

Go to their pages and groups and learn from them too.

Like their posts and comment on their pages.

You’ll find the right fit for you as you do that.

Finally, build relationships. Online or offline – building relationships is key.

There are a few nuances to building relationships online. Keep your online interaction with folks like your contact with people in person.

Here are a few examples:

  • When someone likes your page or a post on your page, go to their page and like a post that you genuinely like.
  • When someone compliments me. I say thank you. That is what I would do in person after all. If they have said thank you, I say you’re welcome. Adding stickers or gifs is even better.
  • If someone asks for more information I message them with a clarifying question. Then I take the conversation offline – in person with a zoom.us call.

The important thing is to listen to them. Focus on what they are looking for. We can guess what they need, but we need to let them tell us.

Check out this article by Brandy Shaver, my mentor/friend. – Seven Steps to Becoming a World-Class Recruiting Machine in Network Marketing
Brandy talks about the importance of building relationships in the third point of her article.

What I am talking about is Attraction Marketing. It is the best strategy I have found to keep from being “that person”.

I love being me and attracting people who like what I do. They are the ones who will be interested in either joining my team ore learning to create their own online presence.

You don’t have to be “that person”.

How to Attract High-Quality Prospects, Enroll Serious Builders into Your Business, and Grow Your Team – FAST! – Using LinkedIn

Social media can free you from ever bugging family and friends again.

But we don’t often think about LinkedIn as a good platform to find qualified prospects. And yet . . .

In this article by my friend and mentor, Ferny Ceballos makes a great case for you to consider LinkedIn. He even includes how to get it done.

network marketing advice-use LinkedIn to rapidly attract prospects and recruits

EVERYBODY’s using social media to market their stuff these days…

Even the biggest brands like Coca-Cola, Nike, Lego, American Express, General Electric, Lowe’s, Taco Bell, and NASA are flexing their social muscles and building huge fan bases online.

According to Infusionsoft, more than 70% of small businesses are planning to include social media marketing in their business strategy.

But while Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram get most of the buzz, many entrepreneurs are sadly neglecting a hidden goldmine of hot, receptive prospects.

After all, when you’re trying to get your business noticed, wouldn’t it make more sense to actually go where the business action’s really at?

Hint: LinkedIn’s where it’s at!

Let me tell you why…

LinkedIn is not a “social” channel – it’s a “business” channel

LinkedIn was created as a place to talk business.

Since the early 2000s, it’s where professionals hang out and network with other professionals.

It’s got such credibility as a business networking site that two professionals join LinkedIn every single second.

According to their own research, LinkedIn reports…

  • 51% of companies acquired a B2C (business to consumer) customer through LinkedIn
  • 93% of B2B (business to business) marketers consider LinkedIn to be the most effective site for lead generation.
  • 50% of LinkedIn members say they are more likely to buy from someone they’ve engaged with on LinkedIn.
  • 80% of LinkedIn members want to connect with companies to enhance their decision making.
  • 92% of B2B marketers include LinkedIn in their digital marketing mix.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, check this out…

  • Inside View reports that LinkedIn generates more leads for B2B companies than Facebook, Twitter or Blogging individually.
  • Econsultancy reports that LinkedIn is responsible for 64% of all visits to corporate websites from social media channels.

So how do you use LinkedIn to attract the kind of high-quality prospects and serious business builders that will help you build your team fast?

Glad you asked!

7 Steps to Market Your Business on LinkedIn

Whether you’re a brand new marketer or an experienced pro, you can use LinkedIn to generate leads, build brand awareness, and establish strategic partnerships with serious businesspeople.

Here’s how you get started…

1. Define Your Goals and Target Audience

Start your LinkedIn strategy by determining exactly what you want to accomplish.

  • Do you want to generate leads and sell products?
  • Build your brand awareness?
  • Recruit team members?

Once you know exactly what you want, it’s easier to define and narrowly target your specific audience.

Let’s say your goal is to sell a training program to network marketers. LinkedIn has over 700 groups specifically for network marketing professionals.

Or imagine you’re part of a health and wellness company, and you want to target network marketers in that field.

There are more than 1500 groups on LinkedIn dealing specifically with health and wellness, and 38 groups focused only on health and wellness marketing.

Depending on your goals, your LinkedIn job is to attract the audience who shares your goals and invite them to connect with you.

2. Create Your Personal LinkedIn Profile

When you’re clear about what you want to accomplish and who your target audience is, take a look at your LinkedIn profile if you have one – or create a profile if you don’t – and make sure it is professional and appropriate for your target audience.

The goal of your personal profile is to portray yourself as a professional – not as a goofy skateboarder or karaoke singer or kid’s soccer coach like you might on Facebook.

Why? Because people do business with people they know, like, and trust.

Your profile has to create the kind of first impression that makes people feel comfortable trusting you, and answer for themselves, “Can I see myself working with this person?”

Complete your profile as close to 100% as you can to establish your credibility, and add to it as your accomplishments grow.

Oh, and use a professional head shot for your profile picture.

LinkedIn’s own research indicates that profiles with professional portraits drive profile views up to 14 times better than those with non-professional portraits.

Putting your best face forward shows your target audience you believe enough in what you’re doing to put a professional face on it.

3. Start Connecting and Build Relationships

Starting from your own contact list, invite current and former colleagues, clients, customers, and others you’ve done business with in the past who fit your target audience profile.

Focus on who you are and who you want to reach with your messages.

Join groups and invite people who fit your target audience to connect.

As soon as someone accepts your invitation to connect, or reaches out to connect with you, send them a message and a gift.

Remember, the goal is to “give without want” – to provide value FIRST before you ask for anything.

Thank people for reaching out, offer a brief statement about yourself and your purpose, and give them something of value – a link to a lead magnet, your website, or an offer you think might be valuable to them. You might say something like,

“Thanks for connecting. I’m passionate about the home-based business industry and how it can help generate substantial incomes for people. Here’s something that I think might help you move forward toward accomplishing your own business goals.”

Then, stay in touch to build likeability and trust.

When you get LinkedIn notifications of birthdays, job anniversaries, or job changes, send a brief message to stay connected and always include something of value in your message – a link to an offer or article you’ve written or an invitation to subscribe to your mailing list or follow your Company Page.

4. Build Your LinkedIn Company Page

Your LinkedIn Company Page is your business’s LinkedIn profile, and it should help prospective leads, prospects, and customers get to know more about your business.

Your Company Page is where you’ll publish relevant content to your target audience; articles, blog posts, business tips.

It’s important optimize your Company Page for search – whether the search comes from within LinkedIn or not.

Make sure you incorporate keywords that speak directly to your audience: what words or phrases would your target audience use when they search for your product or service?

Another way to get noticed and boost your search rankings is to link your Company Page to any other places you have an online presence – your company website, blog, or other marketing sites.

5. Actively Attract Followers to Your Company Page

Whenever someone follows your Company Page, updates to it appear directly in their LinkedIn feeds. And the more followers you have, the greater reach your updates will have.

Start by asking your current customers or team members to follow your Company Page and share it with their networks.

Promote your company page in your blog posts, emails, newsletters, and website, and directly an unapologetically ask people to follow it.

Use a “Follow” button or link on your website to allow your visitors to follow your LinkedIn Company Page with just one click.

6. Publish Rich, Engaging Content to Your Company Page

What kind of rich content should you post?

While it might be tempting to focus on your own products or services, “pitchy” or aggressive sales content doesn’t work very well on LinkedIn.

Remember, LinkedIn people are business professionals first.

That means you need to provide content that your target audience finds useful: content that addresses a pain point, solves business problems, answers questions, or helps people do their jobs better.

The good news? You don’t have to write all that content yourself.

You can share other people’s engaging and insightful content with your followers, to position yourself as an authority and “thought leader” in your industry.

Offer your perspective on industry news and trends. Share the vision and ethos of your company. Showcase how your product or service can offer the best solution for your customers.

And don’t forget to include images – research shows that posts with images attract 6 times more engagement.

So, use pictures, YouTube videos, and SlideShare presentations to enrich your content and engage your followers.

Perhaps the most exciting opportunity of publishing rich, engaging content on LinkedIn is this: out of 560 million users worldwide, only about 1 million users have ever published any content!

That means less than 1 tenth of 1% (.001%) of LinkedIn users are providing content!

Combine that with the fact that 91% of marketing executives say that LinkedIn is their top source for quality content, and the opening should be blindingly obvious.

7. Take Advantage of LinkedIn’s Unique Advertising Features

There are three ways to leverage LinkedIn to grow your follower base through advertising:

  • Sponsored Content
    Sponsored Content is LinkedIn’s version of native advertising. It allows you to promote your most engaging content directly to the feeds of the people in your target audience (no matter what device they’re using), test variations of your message, and track how many leads you’re getting and where they’re coming from.
  • Self Service Ads
    LinkedIn has a very cool Campaign Manager dashboard that you can use to set up text ads and sponsored InMail campaigns in minutes. From there, you target your audience, set your budget, bid on your advertising rates, and track your results using LinkedIn’s analytics.
  • Managed Campaigns
    LinkedIn also offers Managed Campaigns for people with bigger budgets, which includes dynamic ads and account-based marketing services.

If you’re just getting started, you can go a long way by just using Sponsored Content and Self-Serve ads – all you have to get comfortable with is targeting your audience, bidding on your rates, and working with measurement, tracking, and optimization.

Your mission as a business owner is to attract high-quality prospects who are serious about business.

LinkedIn is where serious business professionals hang out

They’re comfortable talking about business there.

They’re actively looking for ways to grow their incomes and advance personally and professionally.

It’s what LinkedIn is for.

So, when you use LinkedIn to market your business, you need to do whatever it takes to make yourself, your business, and everything you communicate attractive to the kinds of people you want to reach.

That means polishing and perfecting your professional image and posture online.

It means being clear about how you can serve your target audience by providing something that has real, tangible business value.

It means positioning yourself a thought leader who attracts – instead of chases – serious business professionals who want to do business with you.

The Three Acts of Your Call to Greatness

Written by guest author ANDREW T DRAUGHON 

You already know the road to becoming a successful network marketing distributor is full of twists and turns.

And it can get kinda bumpy here and there, too.

Luckily, you’re not the first to take the journey and those who’ve come before you have left clues to reach the top of the mountain.

And while everyone’s path is different, there are three distinct stages of growth everyone will experience while building their organization.

Before we discuss these entrepreneurial milestones, though…

Let’s play a game

You’re about to read the story of someone you know all-too-well.

Someone who’s a household name; someone you grew up idolizing.

And make no mistake…

This special someone’s story is KEY to unlocking a never-ending flow of leads, sales, and profits on your own journey as an entrepreneur.

That said, I bet you won’t know exactly who I’m talking about after reading the next 40 lines.

Let’s see if you can prove me wrong!

Our special someone grew up as a nothing-special young man (though a tad odd) living a regular, boring life…

In a regular, boring town.

He yearned for an change, an adventure, a day that wasn’t like all the rest…

Knowing that he didn’t want to wind up like everyone else—grey, tired, and jaded.

Did his family understand him? No.

Did they encourage his dreams? No.

In fact, they told him to fall in line—to play it safe, to learn his place…or else!

One day, though, something different happens…

A mysterious stranger arrives and invites our young man on a quest out of boring, status quo town.

Yet, he hesitates.

He’s afraid, uncertain—what will this mean?

Is there any going back to how things were?

The pain of staying is too great and his desire too strong, though.

Home isn’t an option anymore—he’s outgrown it.

But once he departs…

His WORST fears materialize

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_400x400-03

The path is NOT easy.

The world is a harsh realm filled with dangerous denizens, and he doesn’t know if he has the strength to face all its challenges.

Luckily, he’s not alone.

Mentors guide his way.

He meets challenge after challenge and opposition after opposition, until…

SLAM!

He hits a wall.

There’s never been a test like this—

It’s paralyzing…overwhelming…insurmountable.

And at this moment, when defeat is imminent, the journey is in dire jeopardy, and all hope is lost.

Until, on the precipice of failure…

Eureka!

A life-changing insight—

shocking truth that rocks him to the core

Immediately, nothing is the same.

He experiences profound clarity; his latent abilities are unlocked.

Everything “clicks.”

Now, the challenge isn’t so great.

That wall isn’t so high.

And he now makes short work of scaling it.

After that…

The boy is a man.

Now he may enjoy the rewards of his quest (…though they aren’t quite as he originally imagined).

He returns home.

The familiar is now strange.

The journey is complete.

The story is over.

And the world is a better, forever-changed place.

So, the question remains…

Who’s our brave protagonist, our triumphant hero?

Any guesses?

  • Luke Skywalker? Harry Potter? Frodo Bagginses? Simba?
  • Katniss Everdeen? Ellen Ripley? Sarah Connor? Rey?

Okay, ready for the answer?

All of the above.

And many others.

via GIPHY

With me?

Now what does this mean, exactly?

Well, let’s take a moment to explore…

The cross-cultural “Hero’s Journey”

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_400x400-06

You might already be familiar; if not…

Allow me to introduce Joseph Campbell, a mid-20th century mythologist and scholar of comparative religion.

Campbell’s ideas of a “monomyth,” articulated in The Hero with a Thousand Faces, examines the universal themes of mythical heroes from around the world…

Embodied in such ancient characters such as Odysseus, Gilgamesh, Siddhartha, Inanna, and many others.

And as you read above, these themes are just as prevalent in entertainment today as millennia ago.

In fact…

George Lucas deliberately used the structure of the Hero’s Journey when writing the Star Wars trilogy.

The writers of Lost wove Campbell’s themes into each character.

And films like Harry PotterThe MatrixAladdinThe Lion King (Hamlet for kids), and many, many others all heavily “borrow” from the mythic tradition.

Cool, huh?

Why is the Hero’s Journey so universal and captivating?

Simple!

Because it speaks to the human experience—to the desires and challenges we ALL face along our journeys.

And these themes are most prevalent when you want to do something…

Different.

Much like becoming an entrepreneur.

Think about it…

Most people want to play it safe and not strike out on their own.

Most people want security, not the responsibility of blazing new trails.

Entrepreneurs are different

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_400x400-04

Entrepreneurs are agents of change.

They don’t blame the economy, their boss, the President, or what their parents did or didn’t do when they were kids.

They realize no one else will “fix” their situation.

And they certainly don’t wait for permission to pursue their passion or create the life they deserve.

Does this resonate with you?

If you’re reading these words, I’m guessing it does.

You didn’t sign up for a life of mediocrity.

And even if your business isn’t where you want it to be today

You’re not going to work 50 hours a week until the day you die for someone else’s benefit, living paycheck to paycheck, counting pennies into your golden years.

Right?

If your reply is “that’s right!” then you’ve answered the call of entrepreneurship.

And in doing so, you’ve laid the foundation towards building a network marketing business…

And there’s no going back.

You’re never going to be content to watch others get all the glory while you’re sitting on the sidelines.

So to guide you along your way, we’re going to break down…

The 3 Acts of your Entrepreneurial Journey

Aristotle once said (paraphrasing) that stories have a beginning, middle, and end.

And the Entrepreneur’s Journey is no exception.

Here are the three acts:

  1. Separation (the Call to Entrepreneurship),
  2. Initiation (the Road of Trials), and
  3. Return (Cresting the Summit).

Once you understand the journey, you’ll be able to guide yourself and other folks through it.

You’ll soon see how mentorship and becoming a mentor in turn are integral to the process.

Let’s begin.

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_779x200-09

The journey of every entrepreneur starts with desire—the desire to live life on one’s own terms.

All that matters is that you refuse to settle and you refuse to quit.

Why?

Because it’s tempting to be complacent and live an average life.

That’s easy.

And let’s be real—building a network marketing business is hard.

Unless someone wants it somethin’ bad, they might hear the Call…but they’re never going to set foot on the Journey.

“The Call” is about the iron will to show up in the first place.

Here’s a word of encouragement…

It’s not about hitting a home run the first time you’re at bat.

Just ask Bill Gates.

Before Microsoft, Gates started a business to create reports for roadway engineers from reams of raw road data.

The business wasn’t a success.

Far from it, in fact.

But what’s important is that Gates answered the Call.

And his entrepreneurial DNA ultimately led to the founding of Microsoft and the largest net worth in the history of the world.

That doesn’t happen working for someone else!

Here’s the reality of the situation…

Failure to start is why most people ultimately fail

Most people listen to their “inner critic”—their limiting beliefs, the pain of their past experiences.

They say things like…

“I’m not good at math; I’m not good at writing; I don’t have a natural talent for selling.”

All that junk.

But at the end of the day, that’s all it is—junk.

  • Richard Branson is dyslexic.
  • Jerry Seinfeld was booed off stage during his first gig.
  • Henry Ford went broke 5 times before founding Ford Motors.

Etc., etc.

(I’m sure you’ve heard dozens of such stories before.)

So no—failing a few times does not excuse you from success.

Once you’ve heard the Call, there’s no turning back from building a network marketing business.

Onward!

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_779x200-10

Most people fail to successfully build a network marketing business.

That’s no joke—most ventures (like 9-out-of-10) end up making NO money.

And even when you’re doing well…

Sooner or later everyone winds up in what Campbell calls the “Belly of the Whale.”

An unknown, dangerous territory where anything can happen…

  • Neo swallows the red pill and wakes up in the real world
  • Frodo is captured in Shelob’s lair
  • The Millennium Falcon is detained by the Death Star
  • Harry and Dumbledore enter Tom Riddle’s cave

In entrepreneurial life…

It’s when you face the difficulties of building a network marketing business.

And yeah…

You WILL face them—ask anyone who’s achieved success.

People will “hate.”

Some will reject you—brutally.

Even your friends and family will caution you, often with the best of intentions.

And even when you achieve success, the Journey’s far from over.

Now there’s going to be a target on your back.

People are going to want what’s rightfully yours.

That’s life.

“Gee,” I can almost hear you ask…

“Can I skip all that with a mentor to guide me through!?”

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_400x400-07

Well, the answer is “no.”

And that’s the way it should be!

Here’s why…

Yes, you DO need a mentor; having one is key to your success when building a network marketing business.

After all…

  • Steve Jobs mentored Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Maya Angelou mentored Oprah.
  • Heck, even Mother Teresa was mentored by Father Michael van der Peet.

Who knows if all those people would be successful without their teachers?

Your mentor is your strategist and most honest critic.

But he or she is only there to guide you—to point the way, not to lead you through the Belly of the Whale.

That you do alone.

To succeed…

You must concentrate your desire to shine light into the pitch-black unknown that is your future.

Here at Elite Marketing Pro, we provide mentorship, it’s true.

But we cannot provide the desire, the WILL to follow-through and achieve your dreams.

That’s on YOU.

Is the reward worth the struggle?

What say you?

Let’s proceed…

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_779x200-11

The final, though never complete, phase of your journey…

Is becoming a leader and mentor in your own right.

Perhaps paradoxically…

Along the way you realize your journey isn’t about you or your needs.

Heroes and entrepreneurs alike aren’t serving themselves.

No, they serve a higher calling of service to others.

In business, your key insight is to discover the needs your prospects don’t yet know how to satisfy for themselves without your help.

Read that one again.

And hey, they might not even know what they need.

After all, who needed an iPad before it existed?

Who didn’t need an Apple Watch until after it existed? 😉

Or, how about this…

A Xerox think-tank invented the personal computer, complete with a mouse and point-and-click interface.

But the executives couldn’t understand how they would help anyone make better copies.

They were stuck in their own dying paradigm.

So the technology was shelved until Jobs and Gates came along to essentially steal these ideas.

Crazy, right?

Not everyone has the vision or courage to see what will best serve the market.

In this stage of the Journey, your ego is your biggest adversary.

So here’s your objective…

Give people what they need to reach their goals

29546-BlogBannerRequest-081316_400x400-05

Become the Obi Wan to their Luke…

The Hagrid to their Harry…

The Gandalf to…

Well, you get the picture.

See, facing your own challenges, trials, and the Belly of the Whale qualifies you to help others do exactly the same.

And that’s how you help other people get what they want.

Which is the key to reaching your own goals.

Like Zig Ziglar said…

“You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”

Thus, Act 3 of the journey is all about helping others and providing value.

That’s the heart and soul of any successful business.

At the end of the day…

We’ve all got to slay a few monsters to get to the top—and we need all the help we can get.

For example…

Jobs was booted from his own company in the early ‘90s, went through the challenge of co-founding Pixar, then came back to Apple and turned it into the behemoth we know today.

That’s one man’s Journey.

Naturally, he didn’t do all those things alone.

And neither did any other fictional or entrepreneurial hero.

Life isn’t a solo act.

It’s a team effort.

Your third act is all about inspiring others and guiding them through their second act.

Providing value to others is what makes you a leader

And creates deep, lasting abundance in your life.

Got it?

Okay, let’s recap!

  • Act I – The Call to Entrepreneurship
  • Act II – The Road of Trials (with the help of a mentor)
  • Act III – Cresting the Summit (through service to others)

This model is universal, older than the pyramids.

  • The first act is all about desire—you’ve got to get off your butt and take action.
  • Act II is about perseverance and having the humility to learn from others.
  • The final act is cultivating leadership and providing value to others to receive your ultimate reward.

And how do you become a mentor?

How do you engage in leadership?

Well…

You’re not a leader until you’re leading.

Leadership is a verb

So Grateful I Can Build My Team AND Care for Mom!

Today as I waited with Mom in the doctor’s waiting room I was filled with gratitude.

Yes, I am grateful that she is still with us. We came close to losing her a couple months ago.

And I am grateful that I don’t feel a tug from responsibilities elsewhere. Grateful that there is no job that I am missing to be with her.

And so glad I found a way to build my business at home. Or even when I was with her in a hospital room.

Sure there are distractions. I am guessing you can relate to that. Everyone’s life is full of distractions so I should tell you about . . .

How my business & my life was turned around by one ad.

It promised that I could use the internet to find my perfect team. No more asking people to join me. They would come to me!

It promised that I could stop bugging my family and friends.

Honestly, my family was kind to me. No one was really rude. They just didn’t want to join me in my business.

It sounded almost perfect and then I heard the magic words: to be effective I needed to focus on others’ wants and needs not my own.

Those words introduced me to the same Attraction Marketing training you can access by clicking on this link.

For me those words were – Beautiful! Wonderful!

Because what I really hated about looking for my team was the feeling of using people to benefit me.

This ad introduced me to people who showed me how to help others who were interested in what I do. People who would want to join me and my team.

That was a win-win solution. And . . .

You bet I clicked on the ad . . .

And I found the team that includes Brandy Shaver. I want to share with you some of the ways I have learned from her how we can build our teams without bugging our family and friends.

The best part of that is I get to enjoy family get togethers again. I love my family. They are nearly as crazy and I am and we have a blast together.

And when I am with them I don’t need to be looking for a reason to call them the following week and work into the conversation how my opportunity would fix all their problems!

As if !!

Brandy wrote a blog recently that had one particular point that resonates with me. She said,

“Becoming an effective recruiter means putting your prospect’s interests first.”

Brandy certainly demonstrates this truth. As she is building her own team – rather impressively – she reaches out to me and many others.

And we grow together.

Read on to learn five steps Brandy has taught me to become a recruiting machine.

And I know that you may want to just get started with the same strategies that Brandy and I  are using.

If so click here for a free Attraction Marketing Boot Camp.

But you won’t regret reading to the end to learn these:

Five Steps to Becoming a World-Class Recruiting Machine in Network Marketing

What would your life look like if you were drawing people to you without making phone calls, trolling family reunions, stalking at the mall?

How would it feel if you had strategies that enabled you to focus on your life and the people you care about?

How would you feel when you rank advance or win the incentive trip?

What would it be like to have money leftover after paying the bills?

What would that be worth to you?

I decided two years ago that it was worth learning a new skill set, learning from people who had made it work for them, focusing on building my team in a way that left time for caring for my mom.

For me that’s priceless!! How about you??

Here’s the deal. Looking for people to join our team messes with our minds. It leads to us thinking about rank advancing, having money left over for exotic trips, winning an exotic trip.

We start focusing on US.

And in this business just like in life we fair much better when we focus on others.

We need to keep our focus on others.

Zig Ziglar knew that:

“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”

So, to be a recruiting machine we must put our prospect’s interest first!

Shifting the mindset might be hard until we start doing it.

Once we get that warm feeling of fulfillment from helping someone else get what they want it is far better than walking across stage.

The beauty of finding our prospects online is that we will never run out of prospects. You can learn how to find your prospects online here.

That is if we are equipped with these five steps from Brandy Shaver.

Strive for mastery. Be the best you.

Yesterday my mom quoted a saying from St. Jerome.

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”

Strive for the best and never let it rest.

But here is a quote that encourages me.

“Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.” Washington Irving

I found this quote while sitting with Mom in the ER recently. I could have used that distraction as an excuse for not working that day.

But I have chosen to strive for mastery. I chose that day to rise above the distraction and work from my cell phone. I was rewarded with that quote.

I realized that “mastery” or “having a great mind” is a mindset. It is a choice.

Once I choose “a great mind” I rise above distractions like a helium balloon rises above our heads.

So, choose to be a world-class recruiter. Choose to be good, better, best. NEVER let it rest.

As Brandy says,

“The only way to become a master, a world-class recruiter is to BE one.

Just be.

Cultivate and nurture the unshakable belief that you’re doing the right thing.

Believe in what you’re doing and the value you’re providing.

Believe so totally in what you’re doing it becomes part of who you are.

There’s no substitute for rock-solid belief.”

Then you’re ready to develop a recruiting mindset.

Have you ever felt grateful to someone for letting you share about joining your team? Have you felt like they are doing you a favor?

Now pretend for a minute you are a recruiter for your favorite sports team? When you, the recruiter, visit a high school or college athletic field who gets excited? Is it you or the star athlete you have come to check out? Do you feel like they are doing you a favor?

Of course not! You are doing them a favor.

That is having a recruiter mindset.

When you talk to your next recruit, put on the recruiter mindset.

We have a great opportunity. For us. And for select people.

Of course, your business isn’t a good fit for everyone.

Our business may be great for us. But it isn’t for everyone. And that’s okay!

When we have a recruiter mindset we know that and move on to the next person.

There are people who want what my company, my product line, my team and I offer. I just have to find them.

Or use the internet to attract them to me.

Once we understand that we can approach people with what Tyson Zahner has called “divine indifference.” It’s an attitude of you can take it or leave it.

In my company one leader said from stage that we needed to approach people as if we already had a huge team.

At the time, I agreed with the concept but thought it would be easier if I had the huge team he had.

Now I have learned that having a huge source of interested prospects works as well. I don’t feel a dire need to recruit every stranger I meet. That is what using Attraction Marketing did for me shortly after I started and long before I had people reaching out to me.

And as they reach out to me they become friends.

Now it’s your turn when you click here.

In this process, I collect friends and build relationships with them.

I have always believed that successful recruiters build relationships.

Great teams are a close knit network of real relationships.

And it starts with collecting friends.

We can find those friends at live networking events or in restaurants or malls or . . .

The Internet.

Using the strategies I have learned I connect with people on social media and build relationships.

I add people to my friends’ list on Facebook and contacts on LinkedIn. I invite them to Facebook groups.

When people respond to you and you build relationships you have opportunities to make them an offer to join your team.

And you can be professional about it.

It still takes time. Some people catch on quickly. Others need extra coaching.

I know. I am one of the ones who needed extra coaching. And I have received it from some of the best. Learn how to get that same coaching by clicking on this link.

Building a team isn’t a sprint. It is a marathon.

That requires preparation.

I need to make sure I am healthy which means getting enough sleep, eating healthy, getting excercise.

I also need to be filling myself up with great ideas and thoughts.

Consider yourself like a teapot. To make good tea the teapot needs to be clean and filled with quality tea and hot water.

A master recruiter should be reading every day. Set a goal of 10 pages a day. It’s not a lot but it is doable every day. We have to be consistent with our reading.

Listening to podcasts and watching videos from master recruiters that you want to be like is also great.

You also need to have a plan of activity. Some call it a DMO – Daily Method of Operation.

Learn about others’ DMO and adjust it to your goals and time available.

A while back I made the mistake of listening to several couples talk about their DMO and actually tried to do what they were doing.

Big mistake. I was overwhelmed and felt like I had failed until I heard a husband talk about how he gets up with their children and gets them off to school while his wife is still in bed because she was up until 4 a.m. putting together a presentation.

Oh, I thought, there are two of them. Single me maybe can’t do what married couples can do.

I feel silly telling you that story but I had to learn tha I can’t do what two people can do.

And to be honest I may not be able to do what other single individuals do for multiple reasons.

I have to plan what I can do . . . as long as I am stretching myself a bit.

Here is what I do right now.

I post motivational quotes designed to engage people. I post them on my personal Facebook page and business page.

I post two a day. I also post these quotes on LinkedIn. I don’t do anything else on LinkedIn but I get several connection requests a week because I am consistently posting.

I do two Facebook Lives a week. I get my material from my reading and the videos I watch.

I share videos from Elite Marketing Pro once a week. I post one of their blogs and one of mine every week.

That is my DMO.

Every day I check my phone and respond to those who have engaged with me in some way.

Each one is different which is part of the fun.

And as I engage I need to always be prepared to take the next step with them.

A master recruiter is always ready to enroll someone.

Know the links that you need to send someone to. If necessary have the forms that you need.

More importantly expect people to enroll.

If you have this mindset then when you are chatting with someone you will recognize when they are ready to join you.

When you hear the excitement in their voice be ready to ask, “Are you ready to sign up now?”

If your company has an app to use on line be sure you have it on your phone so you can go right to it.

Then training begins as you enroll!

Most importantly make sure that you do anticipate that they will say yes so you can move the conversation right to enrollment.

I love my family and they love that I recruit online!

We are a crazy bunch of people my family and me.

They love and support me in whatever I do. ‘

Like this picture. I told them I wanted a picture of my crazy family to use with a Facebook post and blog.

But they drew the line with joining me in network marketing.

The Lord knows I gave them plenty of chances to say no. And no they said.

I can’t imagine why.

Oh yeah, it was . . .

  • Make a list of everyone you know.
  • Call the list.

You know the drill. Truly, all of that was a good personal development journey for me. I don’t regret it. But my family loves that isn’t how I build my business now.

Three years ago I was running out of options.

I had called the people in the picture and many others – multiple times.

I was ready to work the cold market. In the back of my mind, I was even psyching myself up to call my list – one more time. I believed in what I was offering and wasn’t quitting.

I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t seen the ad. It was off in the righthand column. Not very big.

But it made a big claim.

That little ad claimed I could learn how to attract my team to me without bugging family and friends. I didn’t hesitate even for a minute. I clicked on the button and everything I read made sense.

I said yes to that little ad and . . .

I was introduced to a team of coaches, trainers, mentors who would teach me to attract the right people. They have proven to be people who are committed to my success. I was introduced to a team of coaches, trainers, mentors who would teach me to attract the right people. They have proven to be people who are committed to my success.

I have already shared more than that ad shared so I should give you an invitation to join the team. Click on this link to a free 10 Day Attraction Marketing Boot Camp with just one of the team I talked about.

Watch those videos and act on the offer they make.

Or don’t.

You can always go mall stalking.

But if you do say yes to the invitation and watch the videos maybe your crazy family like mine will love that you are doing it online. Because that means you won’t be bugging them anymore.

When you do say yes . . .

Here is some of what you will learn.

Going online has huge benefits.

  • You have a virtually unlimited source of fresh contacts.
  • You say goodbye to the no’s and awkward silences because you are talking to people who are interested in what you are doing.
  • You end the long fruitless drives and don’t have to pick up the phone.
  • You enjoy your crazy family because you are not looking for an opportunity to “pitch them” your business . . . AGAIN.

The benefits are huge but you will need to take different actions than you have in the past.

So, let’s talk about three steps that are required to take your business online, starting with . . .

Mindset is so critical don’t you think?

You may have been a great recruiter offline but you will need to approach working online as if it is totally new. Cuz it kind of is.

After you have progressed you’ll find similarities but begin with a mindset of being a student and an intern. Fortunately, your internship provides the potential of earning commissions.

Your mindset shouldn’t be of expecting a commission but rather learning with out that expectation. Then when the commission comes it is icing on the cake.Your mindset shouldn’t be of expecting a commission but rather learning with out that expectation. Then when the commission comes it is icing on the cake.

Keep your mindset on recognizing that what you are learning will make you a marketer. And just about everything boils down to marketing. I so wish I had this information years ago to use with all my other ventures.

Many online marketers (including me) believe that what you get with the team I have partnered with is equivalent to a college education – that has the potential to pay you as you learn.

So, to quote my mentor, Ferny Ceballos,


First, you must get comfortable with the unknown.
Basically, you need to be present and respect the journey.

Know that you’re not going to learn everything you need all at once, in one fell swoop.

When you go online, you’re learning a whole new skill set.
Almost a new profession.

Think of it…
When you learn a new profession, what do you usually do?
Well, you go to school for four years.
We’re not going to have you do that, and it probably shouldn’t take four years, anyway.

However, if there was a school of building a business online, it probably would take a few months to get through all the coursework, so be prepared for a learning curve.

Don’t try to learn everything at once.

Just focus on what’s in front of you.

Master that, implement it, and then move on.

You have to get comfortable with not knowing what’s ahead.

There’s always going to be a new technology that you don’t know about, and new skills that you have to acquire.

Keep that in mind and expect the unknown.

How to Build Your Network Marketing Business Online in Three Strategic Steps

But the other mindset issue is a biggie and comes up often:
You need the ability to overcome adversity and not give up.
By going online…

Do certain parts of building your business become easier?

They do.

It will be different for everyone. I have noticed that everyone implements what they learn depending upon their personality, past experience, and tech skills.

That is why in traditional network marketing some people build a team faster than others.

With this new online strategy, you will learn to automate some of the things you don’t like and aren’t terribly productive.

  • No more awkward phone calls
  • No driving across town to fruitless meetings.
  • No struggling to follow up after they have seen “the plan.”

But you should prepare yourself for adversity. What other folks breeze though I struggled with and had to reach out to the team for help.

But I was not going to quit. No way. What I wanted was far too important to quit because I hit a road block. I backed up and went around sometimes. Other times I plowed through it.

You need to have that mindset.

However you respond to adversity, expect it. And you’ll get through it.

And, I’m sorry, but being able to ignore peer pressure is a vital mindset.

Of course, if you have been network marketing for long you have already taken and passed Ignoring Peer Pressure 101.

When you go online and use attraction marketing your family and friends will still think what you are doing is crazy. But they will be glad you quit calling them about every new product or incentive trip.

Now you will probably add your upline to the list of people who won’t support you in your new strategy.

There at least two reasons for this.There at least two reasons for this.

First is fear. People fear what they don’t understand.

They may fear that as you depart from the recommended training that your company will respond adversely.

I wondered if my company would shut me down. I didn’t see how they could object. They would have good reason if I was trying to work with a competing MLM at the same time I was building with them.

But that isn’t what this is about. It really is making me a better representative of my company.

I read the company agreement and was confident I wasn’t breaking it.

This blog post by Ferny Ceballos is also helpful.

Are Online Recruiting Strategies Compliant with My Network Marketing Company

The second reason for up line push back is more likely. That is pride.

When we go online we are in part implying that their methods are inferior.

In reality their methods are just incomplete until they add the internet as a possible market and understand how to effectively reach that market.

I still love and respect my up line. After all, they are still building their business the harder way. So I give them the respect knowing that soon they will be coming to me asking me how I am building my business.

So, you need a mindset ready to learn new strategies and ways of building your business, to keep moving forward in spite of adversity and to not be affected by peer pressure.

What you will need next is . . .

There are hundreds of people telling us how to use the internet to find our perfect team.

Even in our community the difference in the way each person takes this program and makes it work for them can be distracting.

I have wandered off the path a couple of times. What keeps me focused is a Road Map. A 90 day plan of what I need to do next. It gives me links to videos explaining how to do it.

There are two Facebook communities I can go to for help.

There are fundamentally two ways that you can approach online recruiting and there are clear directions for both.

There is Active Social Media Recruiting.

You can start doing this right away. Without a lot of learning.

With social media recruiting there isn’t a huge learning curve.

You create a presence on Facebook or your preferred social media page. You will learn ways to attract interest.

Then you need a way to share your product or opportunity. If your company has a recommended video use that or whatever they suggest for offline recruiting.

You can start implementing a social media strategy to build your network marketing business today.

What you will do on social media is similar to what you do offline.

The challenge with social media is that you are always busy.

You are posting all the time.

You must constantly be watching for comments and responding to questions.

It is time intensive.

It has created great results and is duplicatable.

But often people move to methods that create leverage and free up some time.

And that is what I have been learning with Elite Marketing Pro.

Speaking of which, if you’re ready to move forward now with building your business using “attraction marketing,” I invite you to sign up for a 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.

The next level of social media is…Passive Social Media

It’s about posting valuable content or information that inspires people to reach out to you and ask you what you’re doing.

In fact, a lot of Elite Marketing Pro students are generating dozens of prospects reaching out to them, asking…

“What are you doing? I want to learn more!”

Then you start a conversation with somebody when they’re reaching out to you.

They are coming to you—instead of the other way around.

Now you’re able to create leverage and scale.

All the things you normally would do with social media you’re now able to scale and accelerate your results.

At this point, you’re going to need a Facebook Business Page (aka a Fan Page) and a training and lead generation system like what they provide at Elite Marketing Pro.

The idea is for people to reach out to you by going to your website and submitting their information, which can happen 24/7 (while you’re sleeping or at the beach).

They’ll do this in exchange for valuable information you’ve promised to give them.

Then they are automatically sent all the information they need to get familiar with your business and all the tools to allow you to do this in no time!

By the time you get on the phone, they’re 90% sold!

You only answer a few questions, and they’re ready to get started.

It’s all automatic.

That’s what a “funnel” does.

This is how you can passively have prospects come into your business, every single day.

As you learn how to passively attract prospects you will learn to create funnels or the process to be able to present offers to people en masse on auto pilot.

This allows you to take people that are brand new and fresh, and walk them through a presentation, in an automated way.

That’s essentially what we’re talking about with passive recruiting strategies (which is also referred to as “attraction marketing”).

Now, for the final piece, which is…

Of course, doing all this without some personal one-on-one help would be difficult.

Think about it, when you started in network marketing offline, somebody showed you the next steps to take.

The same is true with building your business online:

You need someone to show you a step-by-step blueprint.

Thus, when you become a customer or client of Elite Marketing Pro, you receive free, one-on-one coaching to ensure you get started right.

We know it’s overwhelming when you’re brand new.

So we take away the worry by having a mentor walk you through everything step-by-step (so you don’t waste time) and tell you if you’re doing things correctly or not.

This immediate feedback means…

You’ll never feel insecure about not being sure what to do next

Or being unsure if what you did is correct.

Mentorship has also kept me focused.

Before I found this team I had sought help from others who claimed they would help me. I am not sure that they knew how to help. They knew how to do what I wanted to learn but teaching and coaching is an art. I have experienced that kind of help with Elite Marketing Pro and no where else.

However, once I got the mentorship I needed, it put me on the fast track to achieving results.

I still need to grow in my online attraction marketing skills.

Still, in December my mom was hospitalized with some serious conditions. It took a week in the hospital and then two more weeks in a skilled nursing facility to recover. I was able to be with her throughout.

My business kept going. I mostly used my smart phone but I have a light weight Chrome book that saw some service as well.

I believe you can do it too, but…

You have to make the commitment and start with the first step

So if you’ve always wanted to not only have the right information but to have somebody personally help you, then I highly recommend you learn more about Elite Marketing Pro by signing up for this FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp.

Here I am with my mentor Ferny Ceballos.

It’s a video course where our premier mentor Ferny Ceballos walks you through taking your business online.

Because while it is possible to build your network marketing business offline, the way I’m offering you is more efficient, allows you to create income quickly and you can run your business from your laptop.

And just like this information changed my life two and a half years ago, it can change your life as well.

In fact, Ferny will share exactly how he passively generates 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business-builders into my business each month.

You’ll have the tools to build your business automatically—where prospects come to you on a daily basis—ready to sign up and get busy.

So if you’re ready to get started…

Do We Control When We Retire?

Reaching retirement may require more than following the pathway of our parents’ generation.

 
It used to be that if you got a job with a solid company you could count on having a job and retire with a modest but adequate retirement.
 
But today, according to a recent analysis from ProPublica, 56% of workers over 50 have been pushed out of the longtime jobs.
 
That is appalling.
 
Worse yet, only 10% of those workers end up making as much as they did before.
 
Some don’t find employment at all.
Screenshot 2019-01-14 at 9.01.02 PM
 
Tom Steckel, age 62, has been laid off three times since turning 50. He earns far less and has a killer commute now. Here is the link to the article.
 
But how can you protect yourself?
 

First, of course, you need to know your rights.

There are guidelines under The Age Discrimination in Employment Act.

The act basically says it’s illegal to discriminate because of age.

It is illegal but hard to prove or prevent.

Another way to protect yourself is to keep your skills fresh. It isn’t safe to regard your job as a sure thing today. No matter what your age is.
Unfortunately, changing rules require a change in approaches.
 

Today more and more people are looking to a side hustle.

 
My side hustle story goes like this.
It was my decision to take an early retirement at 64. My only plan was to care for my mom.
 
I knew that Social Security benefits would not be enough. I just trusted that God would provide. I assumed that I would write and sell an article here and there. I had already written a novel and was considering whether to send it to publishers or not.
 
I was correct in assuming God had a plan. I just didn’t think it would be a side hustle. Not that I had heard that term yet. And I sure didn’t want to do network marketing – which was my first side hustle.
 
But God laid it out before me so clearly that I knew I had to move forward with it.
 
My side hustle has blossomed and although my primary job is as a caregiver I am giving daily attention to the side hustle that now includes network marketer, affiliate marketer, and coach.
20180118_133136
 
All three fit together as one. They complement each other and allow me to do things that I enjoy.
 
My side hustle requires that I invest time and money.
 
I consider it a long term venture.
 
Many side hustles won’t replace income immediately. The ones that I consider worthwhile are actually business ventures. And a typical business needs time to become profitable.
 
So when considering a side hustle ask yourself if this is something that will take time to create the income you need. And are you willing to wait? And will you still enjoy it six months from now?
 
I found a list of 99 Side Hustle Business Ideas You Can Start Today (which has grown to 119). Some of them I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole. Doubtless, there are others that you wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole while I might. Find the list at this link

Three Things You Need to Grow Your Network Marketing Business Online

It turned out, taking my network marketing business online was much easier than I thought it would be and WAY more fun!
Five years of doing things “old school”, I had grown a modest residual check.
I had called my “list” multiple times to get that result. I switched to stalking folks at the mall and servers in restaurants. I got good at engaging strangers. But. like my family and friends, most of them didn’t want to do “a pyramid thing.”
I held home meetings and hotel meetings. I hosted lunch meetings at a local restaurant,  attended all the company events, and drove thousands of miles. I did not want to quit. But I was pretty much done with “old school”.
And then a little ad on Facebook got my attention. It claimed that I could grow my business online.
Yes, it clicked on it and what I learned made so much sense. I knew that I had found a better way. I said goodbye to “old school” and never looked back.
True, there is a learning curve, but fortunately, it isn’t that hard. In fact, I enjoy what I do. I’ve met a bunch of people who are committed to my success – people like my mentor Ferny Ceballos.

By Ferny Ceballos

If you’re tired of prospecting friends and family, doing home meetings, cold calling, chasing after everyone you meet, or being accused of peddling some “pyramid thing”…

Then you’re probably ready to build your network marketing business online.

Nine months into my network marketing business, I had recruited 17 people into my business and ALL of them had quit!

I had held home meetings at my mom’s house, friend’s houses, stranger’s houses, attended company events, regional events and after literally tens of thousands of miles driven and $10,000 in the hole, I was about ready to quit.

It was pretty embarrassing and I absolutely DID NOT want to face the “I told you so” from anyone, so I took a leap of faith and started searching the internet for answers!

By the grace of God and maybe a little luck, I found the website of someone who had built his network marketing empire almost completely online and thus began my journey into Online Network Marketing. I was saved!

Long story short, after 10 years and millions of dollars in income later, I thank God for the online mentors I’ve grown with because they literally saved my life!

And today, as my mentors did with me, I devote much of my time today showing others how they can take their network marketing business online and let go of everything you currently don’t like about building the old school way.

Now, if you want to build your network marketing business online, here’s what you need to know…

First of all, the benefits are YYYYUUUGE!

  • You can generate fresh, qualified leads from wherever (and whenever) you please
  • You can end rejection forever by only talking to people who are highly interested in your offer
  • You don’t need to drive long hours, your startup costs are low, and your business works for you 24/7—without you ever having to pick up the phone!

The best part is that you don’t need to be “techie” or particularly good with computers to get started.

There are three steps required to take your business online, starting with…

Now, I know people have different attitudes as far as personal development and mindset goes.

But my advice is pretty practical.

First, you must get comfortable with the unknown.

Basically, you need to be present and respect the journey.

Know that you’re not going to learn everything you need all at once, in one fell swoop.

When you go online, you’re learning a whole new skill set.

Almost a new profession.

Think of it…

When you learn a new profession, what do you usually do?

Well, you go to school for four years.

We’re not going to have you do that, and it probably shouldn’t take four years, anyway.

However, if there was a school of building a business online, it probably would take a few months to get through all the coursework, so be prepared for a learning curve.

Don’t try to learn everything at once.

Just focus on what’s in front of you.

Master that, implement it, and then move on.

You have to get comfortable with not knowing what’s ahead.

There’s always going to be a new technology that you don’t know about, and new skills that you have to acquire.

Keep that in mind and expect the unknown.

But the other issue is a biggie and comes up often:

It’s the ability to overcome adversity and not give up.

By going online…

Do certain parts of building your business become easier?

Yes!

That’s the purpose of going online—to create more efficiency, so you’re not doing things that either waste time or you simply don’t like doing.

  • So no more driving around town to get from point A to point B.
  • No more meeting people one-on-one.
  • Or following up over and over after they’ve seen “the plan.”

However, you are still going to face adversity.

You’re still going to hit roadblocks and get stuck.

If you’re somebody that easily gives up when you encounter those types of things, then don’t even try to build your network marketing business.

You have to respect the new skills you’re learning

And be willing to face the tough times.

Respect means when you actually get stuck, you don’t easily give up.

You push through and become resourceful.

An important part of the equation is knowing where to go to find answers or knowing who to ask to find answers (more on this later).

This is vital to your success.

The last thing is…

You’ve got to overcome peer-pressure

There are people that are not going to approve of you doing something that’s different from what they recommend within the company.

Maybe someone in your upline doesn’t want you to explore other methods.

That’s normal.

It’s normal for people who have not built their business this way tend to have a negative attitude.

Human beings fear of the unknown, which is why the first thing I told you was: master the unknown.

It’s natural for people to fear what they don’t know

Not only is it natural to fear the unknown, it’s natural to attack it too.

Know that your upline—even if they have a massive downline—if they haven’t built a business online, then they’re talking about something they don’t truly understand.

Building a business online is completely different than building it offline.

It requires different methods and an entirely different skill set.

Building offline is something you can admire and appreciate—and I certainly do—and respect anyone that’s done it.

But if a leader hasn’t done anything online, and they’re talking ‘smack’ about it, then they have no credibility in my book.

Respect them, but don’t give in to their doubt and fear.

But in today’s day and age, more and more leaders in the network marketing space are starting to accept that you can actually build on social media and using Internet marketing, and the proof is in the pudding.

You see people everywhere who are successfully building online.

The proof is all around you.

You don’t need the approval of anyone else

Move forward no matter what others say to you.

Our community provides a lot of support as it relates to this, and we can offer you advice based on your personal situation.

I’ll tell you how to receive more information at the end of this article.

This sums up mindset:

  • Master the unknown.
  • Learn how to overcome adversity (and not be a weenie).
  • Learn to overcome peer pressure.

Those three things will come up, but now you can be prepared.

The next thing you need is a…

You need an implementation blueprint.

Something you can reference along the way.

And there are primarily two different ways that you can build your network marketing business online.

First, there’s the…

Active social media recruiting

…which you can actually implement right away.

With social media recruiting, you honestly don’t have to learn much of anything.

All you need is a personal account on Facebook (no website required), and some sort of process—may be provided by your upline or somebody in your company—on how to present your opportunity and convert prospects into either buyers or new reps.

You only need to know where to take them, and how to process them.

You can start implementing social media recruiting strategies today to build your network marketing business.

In fact, this strategy is basically equitable to what you’d do offline, except you’re transposing the process online.

The challenge with social media is you’re always busy…

  • You’re always posting.
  • You’re always engaging.
  • You’re always interacting with people.

It produces results quickly (and it can produce massive results), and you can duplicate it quickly, but it’s time intensive.

Most of the time…

People will move beyond simple social media recruiting stuff because they want to create more leverage in their business and to free up more of their time.

And that’s what we’ve been teaching here at Elite Marketing Pro, for the past ten years.

Speaking of which, if you’re ready to move forward now with building your business using “attraction marketing,” 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.

The next level of social media is…

Passive social media recruiting

…which is about posting valuable content or information that inspires people to reach out to you and ask you what you’re doing.

In fact, a lot of our students are generating dozens of prospects reaching out to them, asking…

“What are you doing? I want to learn more!”

I prefer to start the conversation with somebody when they’re reaching out.

They are coming to you—instead of the other way around.

Then you’re able to create leverage and scale.

All the things you normally would do with social media you’re now able to scale and accelerate your results.

For this, you’re going to need a Facebook Business Page (aka a Fan Page) and a training and lead generation system like what we provide at Elite Marketing Pro.

The idea is for people to reach out to you by going to your website and submitting their information, which can happen 24/7 (while you’re sleeping or at the beach).

They’ll do this in exchange for the valuable information you’ve promised to give them.

They are then automatically sent all the information they need to get familiar with your business and we provide all the tools to allow you to do this in no time!

By the time you get on the phone, they’re 90% sold!

You only answer a few questions, and they’re ready to get started.

It’s all automatic.

That’s what a “funnel” does.

This is how you can passively have prospects come into your business, every single day.

In our business, we have between 500-to-600 prospects reaching out to us, requesting information daily.

There’s no way we could personally talk to every single one of them, so we had to create funnels or process to be able to present offers to people en masse on autopilot.

This allows you to take people that are brand new and fresh, and walk them through a presentation, in an automated way.

That’s essentially what we’re talking about with passive recruiting strategies (which is also referred to as “attraction marketing”).

Now, for the final piece, which is…

It would be very difficult for you to do everything I just described without some personal one-on-one help.

Think about it, when you started in network marketing offline, somebody showed you the next steps to take.

The same is true with building your business online:

You need someone to show you a step-by-step blueprint.

Thus, when you become a customer or client of Elite Marketing Pro, you receive free, one-on-one coaching to ensure you get started right.

We know it’s overwhelming when you’re brand new.

So we take away the worry by having a mentor walk you through everything step-by-step (so you don’t waste time) and tell you if you’re doing things correctly or not.

This immediate feedback means…

You’ll never feel insecure about not being sure what to do next

Or not sure if what you did is correct.

And hey, I know how powerful this is from personal experience.

When I first got started, I spent over $150,000 (mostly on credit cards) trying to build my business without mentorship.

It was pretty costly, to say the least.

However, once I got the mentorship I needed, it put me on the fast track to achieving results.

Two years later, I quit my job.

A couple of years after that, I became a seven-figure producer in my home business, and have done multiple millions of dollars ever since.

I believe you can do it too, but…

You have to make the commitment and start with the first step

So if you’ve always wanted to not only have the right information but to have somebody personally help you, then I highly recommend you learn more about Elite Marketing Pro by signing up for my FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp.

It’s a video course where I walk you through taking your business online.

Because while it is possible to build your network marketing business offline, the way I’m providing you is more efficient, allows you to create income quickly and you can run your business from your laptop.

And just like this information changed my life ten years ago, it can change your life as well.

In fact, I’ll share exactly how I 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.

You’ll have the tools to build your business automatically—where prospects come to you on a daily basis—ready to sign up and get busy.

So if you’re ready to get started…
