How To Generate MLM Leads With Email Marketing AutoResponders


The most common question asked by Network Marketers is:

"How Do I Find People To Talk To About My Business?"

The traditional method of making a list of friends and family members usually doesn't work out very well. And even when it does, the list gets blown through pretty quickly.

And anyone with any experience with this method can usually tell you that nobody is quicker to pour water on the fires of enthusiasm than "friends and family".

So what is a new network marketer to do?

Enter AutoResponders.

An AutoResponder is a system that allows you to begin generating leads, building your own lists of targeted prospects, and making more sales and referrals.

The best part is that once you get your AutoResponder set up, it runs on auto-pilot.

There are a few keys to being successful with AutoResponders. They are:

Make sure you have your own web site.

I know that a lot of mlm companies have their own replicated web sites and they're fine once you have a truly "hot" prospect on the line. But when it comes to prospecting and building your lists, you want your own web site for a number of reasons.

Having your own web site allows you to build your own credibility.

Having your own web site allows you to build personal rapport with prospects.

Having your own web site helps you stand out in the search engine results.

Having your own web site helps you stand out over your competition.

Your web site can be a simple one page site that gives an overview of who you are, your business, your lifestyle, etc...

Your web site should invite visitors to request free information from you. This brings us to the next key:

Add a subscription form to your web site.

The subscription form should ask for a name and email address. This form is the key to turning web site visitors in to prospects.

How do you get people to fill out the form?

Offer them free information on how they can make money from home.

Offer information on how your product can help them with whatever it is your product does.

In my case, I sell AutoResponder services so I offer a free report on how AutoResponders can help boost online sales.

When a visitor fills out my subscription form, they begin receiving my report giving them helpful information on understanding autoresponders, email marketing, how to create follow-up letters, and more.

And, of course, my letters invite them to purchase my autoresponder system for themselves.

Suppose your network marketing company offers a weight loss product. Your report could talk about the obesity epidemic, common causes of weight gain, some success stories from others that have used your product, and information on how they can order the product for themselves.

Your AutoResponder messages are where you would include a link back to the replicated site offered by your mlm company.

An added benefit of building your own targeted lists with your own web site and autoresponder is that if your mlm company should experience problems, go out of business, or become unavailable for any reason, you would be able to continue building your own credibility, switch to another company, and continue operations without having to start over from absolute zero.

Finding Targeted MLM Leads

The objective of multi-level marketing (MLM) is to sell the product or service and to encourage the client to become an independent distributor, who then sells the service or product as well. Leads are vital for any business to grow, and in order for the business owner to have the greatest success, the leads must be curious enough in the business opportunity to have expressed an interest. The prospects that have expressed an interest in becoming distributors are known as Targeted MLM Leads. To find targeted MLM leads, business owners must first have ample knowledge of their target market. Are they self-starters? Do they have the commitment necessary to be part of a network? Business owners must also understand the product or service, the company mission statement, and its goals and objectives well enough to offer a good sales presentation. Delivering a presentation, however compelling, to someone that has not shown interest in the product, service, or business opportunity is a waste of time and resources. Business owners can acquire targeted MLM leads from various sources. The most convenient sources are the companies that compile and sell lead lists. The business owner, however, should be careful when choosing a lead list source, as some may be fraudulent. Some targeted MLM leads are identified through telephone interviews or direct mail response. Business owners can also obtain targeted leads from promotional give-away programs that have high traffic. Usually a person will fill out a simple survey to claim the promotional item, and the business owner can then use the survey to assess whether he or she will be a quality lead.

It is something we enjoy doing as a family. and We take huge offense to this, though We dont live in Connecticut  whether your a wrestling fan or not it affects us all taking away our First Amendment rights!!!!!!!!!!!!"

McMahon Says WWE Fans’ Right To Vote Are Being Threatened


Filed under WWE News, Wrestling News · Tagged with Vince McMahon
World Wrestling Entertainment issued a statement this evening in response to Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz ruling authority to Connecticut poll workers to determine that if anyone shows up to the polls on Nov. 2 wearing any WWE merchandise,
whether it be a Dolph Ziggler T-Shirt or Nexus Santa Hat, they may be forced to go home and change, cover it up, or take it off in order to vote.

“Denying our fans the right to vote, denying them their First Amendment rights, regardless if they are Democrat, Republican or Independent, is un-American, unconstitutional and blatantly discriminatory,” said Vince McMahon.

are you on Facebook?




Facebook is a social networking utility that connects people together based on networks. Networks can be based on a wide variety of things and based on the information you provide in your user profile when you sign up for Facebook, you can connect to a wide variety of networks and meet a number of people that are similar to you. Many people have used Facebook in order to meet a lot of great people and if you are interested in using the internet to meet people then Facebook might be the website you're looking for.
Considering the small bit of history mentioned in the preceding paragraph, it should come as no surprise that the founder of Facebook was a student at Harvard University. A man by the name of Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook and ran it for a very long time as a hobby project during his time at University.
There are many different ways that a person can get security but the one that has specifically been created to meet the demand for security is what is known as a Facebook proxy.
Now that facebook has become so popular, two of the three initial creators have dropped out of university and dedicated themselves full time to improving and maintaining Face book layouts and all of its facilities. Today the Facebook website is used by people from thousands of University campuses across the English speaking world and is also enjoyed by a number of different companies and religious groups as well. In terms of total users,
Facebook has approximately 18,000,000. This number places it amongst the top social networking websites in the world; not bad for a website that was started as a hobby project by a Harvard student. This 18,000,000 number is reputed to contain multiple accounts; in other words there is an assertion out there that there are not actually 18,000,000 people using the Facebook service but that many people have more than one account on it.
To end on a high note in this game of statistics, here is something that you might find very shocking. According to web traffic numbers and taking into account the 30 billion page views Facebook gets on a monthly basis, it is now the 7th most visited site within the United States.

Discover 3 Keys To Effective Email Marketing

Email marketing is becoming a popular tool for many small and home based businesses around the world.

Email marketing allows businesses to eliminate expenses for things like paper, ink/toner, envelopes, postage, etc., and these savings make it a very attractive method of promotion.

Done properly, email marketing can be very effective. Unfortunately, too many businesses let the excitement of a low-cost marketing campaign overshadow their business sense.

Done improperly, your email marketing campaign becomes nothing more than a mess of sending the wrong message to the wrong market.

There are just a few key elements to launching and managing a successful email marketing campaign.

They are . . .
  1. The list (your database).
  2. The offer.
  3. The follow-up.
Start With the Right Email Marketing List

The temptation is to rush out and purchase a list from brokers or leads suppliers. The harsh reality is that most of these lists are simply harvested email addresses from search engines. The so-called "savings" of purchasing a list of email addresses can be effectively wiped out when email addresses begin bouncing and recipients begin complaining to your Email Service Provider for sending Unsolicited Commercial Email (or "spam").

The best (and only truly safe) way to build your database is to market effectively. This can be done both online and offline. Traditional methods such as collecting business cards in a drawing and offering free information in exchange for contact information still work very well.

Additionally, Search Engine Optimization strategies can be very effective. The key is to get prospects to visit a "capture page" that is designed to entice them to give their contact information in exchange for something you are offering, such as a free report or free download.

As your list begins to grow, if you have targeted your market effectively, you will find yourself with a considerable database of motivated and targeted prospects.

The Offer

Email marketing is about getting your offer out in front of your database. Yes, they have joined your list voluntarily but keep in mind that you are competing with hundreds of other email messages they may be receiving that day.

Your job is to make sure your email marketing message is opened and read by your prospects.

The key is to create a compelling subject line. Where possible, use the prospect's name in the subject line. Most recipients are much more likely to open an email addressed to them by name.

Once your message is opened, the copy must create a compelling interest so that the reader will want to learn more.

The key here is to think like your prospects. They all have the same question on their mind when they open their email:

What's in it for me?"

Answer that question in your copy and your email marketing campaign could be a huge success. Focus on telling prospects about the benefits of your offer. What will it do for them? What can they expect if they order from you? How will it help them save time, increase revenues, lose weight, feel more attractive, etc.?

The Follow-up

The next step is to follow up with your prospects. Studies have proven that prospects need to see your message over and over again before they make a decision to purchase. Using an AutoResponder to follow up with prospects can dramatically increase the response rate of any email marketing campaign.

The ability to follow up with prospects over time is critical to your success.

Your follow-up letters should essentially repeat your original message. Maybe each follow-up message can stress a particular feature and continue to reinforce the benefits to your prospects.

The idea behind an effective email marketing campaign is to ...

... Tell them.
... Tell them again.
... Tell them what you just told them.

Attention spans are short. Competition is high.

Keep your messages to the point and focus on benefits, benefits, benefits.

Make your prospects WANT to buy from you by consistently keeping your email marketing message in front of them.

The reward for a job well done will be increased revenues and customer loyalty.

Damaged Goods

In my humble opinion, all war is wrong. However, I am proud of the soldiers who defend us in those wars. All the soldiers lost to war also are wrong. Soldiers are lost in many ways not just by death. Sometimes they return from war damaged goods like my dad. My dad for instance proudly served in the US Army and had been in Vietnam. He was a sergeant and was honorably discharged after having had a nervous breakdown. Allow me to explain what happened. One day, during the war, my dad went into a bar that also had a massage parlor in the back separated by a brick wall. Suddenly there was a large explosion. You see a little boy brought a shoe box with a bomb inside in to the bar. My dad discovered his platoon in pieces with no arms or legs screaming to him for help. There was nothing he could do. That is what greatly triggered his underlying mental illness. From that point on he suffered from paranoid Schizophrenia. My childhood was spent in the Stratton VA Medical Center – Albany, NY and the VA day treatment center Jast to visit and spend time with him. When I was four years old he was supposed to take me to nursery school and instead he took me to a cemetery. He then took me to a statue of the Virgin Mary and told me that he was GOD, I was Jesus, and my mom was dead. He then pointed to the statue and said she was my mother now. I told him I was hungry so he bought a candy bar and ate it in front of me. When we got home the police and FBI were waiting for us along with my mother. They were trying to find me. I know my dad loved me; he was just sick. I remember before he would leave to go to the VA Hospital he would say to me, ”Chris, you are the man of the house now take care of your brother and mom for me.” So that is what I did. My brother was 10 years younger than me. I babysat all the time while my mom was at work. My dad tried to commit suicide many times over the years to try to kill the thoughts. The last time he took three bottles of two month supply of pills. He overdosed on haldol,lithium,xanax. He died three times and they revived him each time. He was in a coma for eighteen months. He was never the same again. When he came out he was in a semi-vegetative state and spent the next 12 years in a wheel chair in Barnwell nursing home in Valatie, NY.  in that nursing home when the nurses refused to give him a cigarette and he threw himself out of his wheel chair. When he fell he cracked his head open. He had done this many times before but this time there were complications. He developed pneumonia and died. He was not only my father; he was also my best friend. But also he was damaged goods. He may not have died in Vietnam but in my opinion war killed him.

MENTAL ILLNESS tears families apart and ruins lives. i know this because my father suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and manic depression be for his pasing in 06, now my little Brother Suffers from it as well..

Stop Begging! Start Manifesting

Do you remember that first spark of hope you felt when you watched The Secret? I clearly remember the desire that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, I can make my dreams come true – FINALLY!
But how many of you soon saw that hope dwindle into frustration? How many of you (and be honest now) started muttering things like:
- “It seems to work for other people, but I just can’t get it right.”
- “I’m frustrated that sometimes I can get it to work, but sometimes I can’t. What’s the trick?”
- “Why am I having so much trouble?”
- “I think the universe is against me.”
- “I’m trying very, VERY hard but still nothing is happening!”
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. About 97% of people also couldn’t make the Law of Attraction work for them the first time round. Think about it, just like anything else, you have to practice many times before you see success. A child doesn’t learn to walk without falling over a couple of times, right?
But in practice, everything is easier said and done. When you’re frustrated, it’s hard to stay positive. And it’s especially harder to stay positive when the evidence all around you is screams negativity like the unstable economy or senseless acts of violence such as those recently seen in Mumbai.
And do you know what happens when you fail to stay positive? That’s right – you start attracting negative things in to your life.
So how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you – without getting frustrated? How do those who successfully implement the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence and finesse?
Well, here’s three quick tips so you will never feel frustrated or tired of begging from the universe, because you know how to start manifesting like a pro.
1. Allow Yourself To Receive
Just like a lost child who approaches a police officer and asks, “Excuse me Sir, can you tell me how to go to the post office? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you?” Well, if the child goes on and on asking, the police officer can’t even give an answer, right?
Well, it’s the same thing with your mind. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmit, transmit, transmit, the universe — which is trying to respond — can’t give you a single thing because you’re not allowing yourself to receive!
So, have the confidence in yourself and stop exhausting yourself by running around person to person begging for riches, and then wondering why nobody is dropping a penny in your cup (Hint: It’s because you’re running away too fast for them before they can even reach for their wallets).
Just think of your desires and leave it out there, go away, and trust that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right.
2. Be Patient With Yourself
Receiving takes time.
Sadly, many people give up just a couple of steps before the finish line because they’ve decided that if it’s not working by now, it’s never going to work at all. Worse still are those who throw in more and more energy because they think that with more resources, the results will come faster.
This is like expecting 9 mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in 1 month. You also can’t bake cookies in half the time by doubling the temperature. You’ll incinerate those cookies to ashes!
In simple terms: Everything in this world has a natural development time, and this fact will not change no matter what resources you throw at it.
So relax and be patient. Remember that you too, as part of the universe, are also governed by the laws of the universe, and you cannot change the natural development time.
If you remember this, you will less likely work yourself up into frustration, or worse, push yourself into a downward spiral of negativity.
3. Support and Educate Yourself
Like the child who is learning how to walk, you need support. You also need to guidance on how to do it, and also the role models to look up to.
Many people give up because they think that “The Secret” is the “be all and end all” solution. Well, it’s NOT. “The Secret” is just a small portion. It was never intended, and has never been, the whole answer.
Coming to the conclusion that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work when all you ever did to educate yourself was watch “The Secret” 19 times (without looking at changing the habits of other areas of your life) is like coming to the conclusion that exercising is not an effective way to lose weight because all you did is run on the treadmill for 2 hours a day (but you’re still stuffing yourself with fried foods and cheesecakes).
So seek and be hungry for new knowledge. Also, make an effort to be amongst people or communities where you can support each other, learn from each other and also share new knowledge that you have found.
While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too!

How do you get your visitors to return?

Let’s look at what you usually do when surfing the web. You see a site you like and start to read it. You are thinking  about what a great site it is and if you  really like it you bookmark it so you can come back again.
Then something interrupts you, it may be the dog barking at a neighbor or one of the kids starting to cry and you are called away.
What happens when you get back? You have forgotten what you were looking at and



what are the odds you’ll ever use the bookmark to go back?Want to find out? Go click your bookmarks
right now and see if you can even remember what half of them are for. I know I can’t.
Your site visitor is no different then you  are. No matter how great your site is
things constantly distract people and your
visitor is gone. Now if the site you visited had used a squeeze page and made you an offer of
interest, they would have a way to



contact you. When they email two days later you remember the great report they gave you and open the email to see what they have to say.
You are very likely to go back and see more of their site. What is more is that they can continue to invite you back time and again because they got your contact
information and your permission.This is why using a squeeze page and getting permission to follow up with your visitors is so powerful.Check out Instant Squeeze Page Generator to discover how easy creating your page can be. You can beat the cost -0-.

Ad Swap Magic

Here is a little used technique you can implement to build your mailing list for no additional cost. I call it “using subscribers to make subscribers” like much in the context of “using money to make money”.
This simple list building formula can be summed up in two words: ad swap.
Generally, you trade advertisements with other eZine publishers, preferably of the same mailing list size or bigger. You broadcast the eZine publisher’s advertisement to your mailing list while the eZine publisher endorses your ad to his list. Yes, you are actually cross endorsing or cross promoting each others offer to each of your mailing list.



Your advertisement’s goal should be to get as many subscribers possible from the other eZine publisher’s mailing list to sign up for yours.
The result: you grow your mailing list. This method does not require money, which means it can be done for free. And the return of subscribers? Infinite!
You only have to do this with one eZine publisher at least once, because his subscribers who are also your subscribers can now be followed up within the boundaries of your mailing list.



Perform ad swaps with as many eZine publishers as possible and soon, you will have a huge mailing list of your own – built free.

3 Things All Affiliate Marketers Need To Survive Online


Every affiliate marketer is always looking for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Sometimes they think it is a magic formula that is readily available for them. Actually, it is more complicated than that. It is just good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication.
There are tactics that have worked before with online marketing and is continuing to work in the online affiliate marketing world of today. With these top three marketing tips, you will be able to able to increase your sales and survive in the affiliate marketing online.

What are these three tactics?

1. Using unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site of the specific product you are marketing.

You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.




Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big if they do not avail of your products and services.

3. Get the kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.
Always remember that only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.



The tactics given above does not really sound very difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part.

Try to use these tips for several affiliate marketing programs. You can end maintaining a good source of income and surviving in this business that not all marketers can do.
Besides, think of the huge paychecks you will be receiving…

Strategies For Successful Business Networking

 



There are a variety of organizations that run networking groups across the country. The largest group is probably BNI, which offers members the chance to attend weekly meetings and develop new professional relationships to help them grow their business. some chambers of commerce are now organizing "leads groups" for their members as well. These groups are intended to offer members a way to connect with each other and potentially refer each other business.

In most "leads groups" each group allows no more then one representative from any industry, so if the group has a mortgage broker other mortgage brokers have to join another group or wait for the seat to open up. The idea is that by restricting membership, you eliminate competition within the group.

The agenda at most structured networking meetings is pretty straightforward. Each member is given an opportunity to introduce themselves, then there is a short presentation by one or two members (each member gets the chance eventually). The meeting ends with members discussing potential referrals for each other. This means that most of the members get about one minute to present who they are and teach the other members of the group how to refer to them.

Most people do a great job of presenting themselves. However, most people do not think to ask for referrals. At most networking events, you are not expected to ask for a referral or explain what a good referral for you is. However, at a leads group it is not only acceptable, it is expected!

I am involved in a number of networking groups and have used the simple outline below to create my elevator pitch (quick introduction). When I deliver my elevator pitch to a leads group, my goal is to educate everyone in the room about my company and what I do, as well as to teach them the best way to refer others to me. In addition, I want to make sure I actually ask for a specific referral. I will go through each piece of the outline in detail, but here are the basics.

* Introduction o Name o Position + company name o Location of the company o Overview of services * Tell a story * Call to action

The introduction piece of your presentation should stay the same every time you give it. You might say something like, "My name is Joe Smith. I am mortgage broker at ABC mortgages in Anytown, USA. We offer a full line of residential and commercial mortgage products." You can add some additional detail, but you should really focus on keeping this short and on point.

At each meeting, you will have the chance to differentiate yourself from the competition by telling a short story during your presentation. The story can be related to a specific challenge you helped a client overcome, a unique feature of your product or service, or you can simply talk about a new development at your company. Consider writing out your stories in advance so you know what you are going to say at each meeting. In addition, you can schedule the content so that the other members of your group learn more and more about you at each meeting. You need to focus on educating your group a little more each week.

The "call to action" is very important and the piece that most people overlook. You need to tell the other members of your group exactly what type of referral you are looking for. For example, our mortgage broker, Joe Smith, might say, "Today a good referral for me would be a Realtor at XYZ real estate company." Joe may also say, "Today a good referral for me would be anyone who purchased their home more then 10 years ago."

I alway recommend that your "call to action" is as specific as possible. If Joe stands up and says that a good referral would be anyone who needs a mortgage, the rest of the group will have a harder time thinking of people to refer. If Joe asks for an introduction to a specific person at a specific company, someone in the group may know that person or know someone at that company who can facilitate Joe's introduction. The more specific the request, the more likely it is to trigger someone else in the group's memory.



A last minute hint:

Keep focused on the networks of the people in the group, not on the people themselves. In other words, when you are participating in a networking or leads group, you should not focus on gaining the business of the people at the table. Instead, you should focus on gaining their trust so that they will refer you people in their network.









Marketing Earn thousands of Dollars




 



Top networking marketing opportunities, also known as multi-level marketing opportunities, run rampant on today's Internet. You've no doubt received some kind of solicitous e-mail or seen some kind of advertisement in the margins of a web site you've visited that talks about amazingly easy ways to earn thousands of dollars with a simple home based business.

The truth behind many of these "top networking marketing opportunities" is that they are using the sign-up fees from new members to pay dividends to existing members rather than actually generating any revenue from legitimate products and services. So no matter how much money they promise to make for you, if you can't see any discernable product or service of value involved in the opportunity, you can assume that this is one of those "top networking marketing opportunities" that is actually an out and out scam.

The truth is that for many of these top networking marketing opportunities, only one out of every fifty or a hundred people who get involved actually make the kind of returns that the opportunity dangles as a carrot in front of you. In fact, the actual numbers might be far less than this. It's never as simple as "pay for the secrets and start raking it in right away." Anyone who does make returns on these so-called top networking opportunities work hard to sign up plenty of other affiliates, many more than the "it's so easy" testimonials make it sound like you need.

When you come across one of the "top networking marketing opportunities" on the internet, guaranteed to help you retire and live easy within a year, be wary. Do your research and find out what people who have been involved in these opportunities actually have to say about their results. Make sure you research these opportunities on objective third party sites, not testimonials on the opportunity's home page. Keep your common sense, and good luck!
