MLM List Building Secrets.

What do you do with your prospect list you are building for your home business?

Do you build it daily? weekly?


Would you like 7 Tips on building a list that will help accelerate your lead generation?

Here are 7 powerful list building gems that you can use for your home business mlm that i use and have proven to rock any list building:

1. Power Focused Article Marketing.

With power article marketing, I’m not focused on the usual step of submitting your articles to the usual article directories for my home business. Do not get me wrong–that still works in today’s marketplace extremely well. What I’m referring to is FOCUSED SUBMISSION-which is submitting your power articles to popular Authority Sites  in your home business market. Let me explain. If you’re in the Internet marketing niche, popular sites like Entrepreneur, About, Ehow, Associate Programs and even popular blogs like Site Fling are possible places to submit articles.

Submitting your articles at these types of submission places means you’ll have less competition in your niche and receive a bunch more traffic without being forced to compete with thousands of other articles.

2. Power Forum Marketing.

This has been around for a long time-but it still works. The problem with many people when it comes to forums is they lack a VERY important component: A SYSTEM.  You’ll want to create a list of authority forums in your niche, and then submit to all of them DAILY– no exception. If you have a list of say, 7  forums, and you submit 4 posts to each of them every day, you’ll get a steady flow of new leads and names every day. And this is just ONE of the many ways you can build a list on forums. Forums can bring a LOT of traffic if you work them daily.

3. The Secret of “List Builders.”

What is a LIST BUILDER? Good question. Think RECIPROCATE. List builders typically work like this: you sign up for the exchange, and you can promote to thousands of other members with an email promotion, but you also agree to receive emails from other members as well. Examples of these types of list building networks include: List Joe, The List Auction, Viral URL and Viral Ads Unleashed system. I have personally used List Joe and Viral url,  and I recommend this as a great way to build a quick list.

4. FREE Giveaways

Giving something FREE away is another powerful method of building your list. The idea is that dozens of list builders promote the your giveaway so everyone grows their lists-including YOU. The issue with some folks to that you may be “giving” away a lot of your people to dozens of other lists. Well, these days, you don’t even have to promote the giveaway if you choose not to. Yes, you read that right- you are NOT forced to!  NOTE: Many list building events provide the option of upgrading so you will receive additional points that will increase and better the position of your free giveaway.

5. Power Video Marketing.

Video marketing is an extremely flexible and powerful strategy for creating traffic. The hard part actually is getting the video created if you do not know how. I suggest using the FLIP video camera as that is a great and quick way to do it. Once a video is done, promotion can be easy using automated tools like Hey Spread and Traffic geyser. These powerful tools (or websites) submit your videos automatically to more than a dozen of the most popular video sharing websites online. Imagine if you create a short 3 to 5 minute video every week and submit it to more than a dozen of video sharing sites weekly. That should be enough to give you a quick growing list from your mlm videos for your home business.

6. Craigslist

The popularity of is not even measurable.  Most people do not know this, the last 3 years, Craigslist’s popularity grew by 62% – A YEAR. This is probably because more people are going online to either search for bargains or to look for jobs or business opportunities. This means that Craigslist has never been a better ground for marketers to tap into- IF you know what you are doing. Check out our other posts about craigslist:

The ONE Power Secret of Recruiting on Craigslist

7.  Blog Marketing

Writing a blog is laborious,  there is NO DOUBT–but at the same time it can drive a flood of targeted visitors to your home business. The great thing about a blog is that there are many ways you can leverage it for traffic and lead generation – you can use it to tag and ping, it is easy to social bookmark, RSS is easily integrated and it is great for search engine optimization. And these are just a few of the amazing ways that you can create leads and build a list with your blog.

These are powerful list building secrets for your holidays and for your home business network marketing mlm.

MLM List Building- 5 Recruiting Rules You Cannot break


MLM Goal Setting- A Short Course on How to Set “MAGNETIC Goals” in 2012

mlm 2012 goal setting home business

mlm home business 2012 goals

Magnetic MLM Goals.

Are you planning on setting 2012 goals this year for your home business whether online or offline, social media or social networking LIVE?

Are you planning on having a DIFFERENT year in 2012– or the same year in mlm? Well you can do Pilates Instructor Training and can become the best instructor and build yours business too.

What are your PLANS for your network marketing goals and ar ethey gong to MOVE YOU?

There are only 2 types of goals – Goals that PUSH you and paralyze you, and goals that PULL you towards them almost effortlessly in your mlm home business.

I call them MAGNETIC Goals.

Most set PUSH goals and begin the laborious process of working, working, and working, and never feeling like they are going to achieve them.

Those goals end up becoming ANCHORS and you start feeling the weight of the goals. These types of goals become almost a burden and then you start to question whether or not if it is worth it, and if you really are going to continue.

These types of goals do not INSPIRE you. They are not connected to the heart and these goals are what you think you should be gong for, not what you really want to go for.

These Goals lack MAGNETISM.

Magnetic Goals PULL you towards them.

Magnetic goals DRAW you towards them daily, and you find yourself accomplishing on a daily basis what needs to be accomplished.

Magnetic goals contain a powerful PURPOSE that your heart is connected to. It does not matter whether they are what other people want. These goals are what YOU want.

Magnetic Goals EXCITE YOU.

Magnetic Goals LIGHT YOU UP – just thinking of them.

Magnetic Goals FIRE YOU UP.


Magnetic Goals MOVE YOU on the inside and PULL YOU towards them.

You do NOT SET Magnetic Goals. You CONNECT TO THEM and THEY SET YOU – on a course to CAPTURE THEM with NO other option.


You do NOT SET Magnetic Goals. You CONNECT TO THEM and…


on a course to CAPTURE THEM with no other option for your network marketing business.

You are so DRAWN TOWARDS these types of Goals that you cannot see any other possibility except to capture those goals for your multi level marketing business.

Magnetic Goals STRETCH YOU and GROW YOU as they are powerful growth tools. They also ENLARGE YOU in what you think is possible in 2012.

How do you CONNECT to Magnetic Goals for your home business?


Magnetic Goals basically revolve around LIFESTYLE and INCOME.

Yes you can set goals as far as physical, and professional, and emotional. But Magnetic Goals are more powered by Lifestyle and Income.

Here is a Million Dollar question:

What part of your Lifestyle do you want to Enlarge in 2012 and when you think about that, it MOVES you on the inside with excitement and HOPE ?

Write that down.

Now, the next step:

What is the FIRST THING you need to do in order to start MOVING TOWARDS that Magnetic Goal? What are the parts to that first step?

BREAK IT DOWN into doable parts and actions. Then set a REWARD  for yourself once you have achieved these small steps.

For instance, the FIRST thing you need to do to increase your income in 2012 is to increase your activity level, say by holding 30% more business conversations in 2012, which will increase your exposures, which will increase your prospects, which will increase your presentations, which will increase results.

Start with Activity level and break it down into the actions that you will be taking:

Prospecting, approaching, presenting, following up and closing.

NOW you have to set goals for EACH TASK– BUT set a reward and Celebration for achieving the increased number in each task. The normal increase that most can get excited about and seeing done is 30%. If you wanted 6 new leads a week last year- focus on 8 new leads a week in 2012 (a 30% increase.) If you want 50 new leads a week, then in 2012, it would be 65 new leads.

Put a weekly activity sheet together now, and fill in your activities DAILY and let your sponsor know what you are doing and send them a copy of your weekly Magnet Sheet.


What is the SECOND THING you need to do in order to continue moving towards that Magnetic Goal? What are the parts of that step? BREAK IT DOWN into doable parts and actions. Then set a REWARD for yourself once you have achieved these small steps moving you towards your network marketing success and lifestyle.

Continue to focus on ALL the STEPS that are needed in order to capture the Magnetic Goal.  Write them down in order and break each one down into small doable actions and set rewards along the way a shown above.

These “rewards” are known as “Success Magnets” as they keep you focused on achieving the goal for your new lifestyle and home business.

Now….engage the FIRST small step — of the first thing you do to start moving towards the goal. Once you have achieved this action- write the Success down in your “Celebration Journal” and continue on to the next small step.

Now…here is the “secret sauce”- Get a poster board and some magazines and clip out pictures of those images that look like what your Magnetic Goal is in lifestlye and income. These represent your increased lifestyle and income, so STRETCH yourself and DREAM and then find the dream pictures. Paste them on the board and above the pictures write- “2012 Magnetic Goals Achieved” and look at it daily to weld that picture into your mind of where you are headed in 2012.

The secret to Magnetic Goal Success is LACK of OVERWHELM and LOTS of EMOTIONAL FIRE on the inside for the Lifestyle.

These types of goals are “chunked down” and not overwhelming. But they are also EXCITING to you because they are leading you step by step to a new, incredible lifestyle- one sale, one recruit, one new team member ar a time for your home based business.

If you set Magnetic Goals, you will start seeing them PULL YOU towards a life and lifestyle that you never thought possible in your network marketing home business!

MLM Training- MLM Leadership Secret Beyond Influence

mlm network marketing

mlm home business leadership


MLM Leadership.

What is the most powerful part of MLM Leadership?

MLM team Building?

Some say:



Decision Making?

Would you like to learn a more powerful Force in your mlm leadership that truly will rock your home business and recruiting?

Inlfluence is key to home business success, no doubt. But yet, when you learn the TRUE Marketing Power that PULLS people towards you, you will be light years ahead of most in our great profession.

Influence is what many Leaders say DRIVE mlm and network marketing.

But…does it drive Marketing Success and Recruiting?

Or…is there something MORE POWERFUL that you need to engage in your mlm home business?

Is there something that you need to focus on more powerfully and will create the results you want for your network marketing business?

Influence is something that is very critical. But there is a RULE that you need to understand about the shift that has occurred in the home business profession.

What would that New Home business rule be?

NOTE:  It is No Longer just about Influence, but IMPACT.

Read that AGAIN!

It is No Longer just about Influence, but IMPACT.

 Influence is at the core of Leadership and the secret to this business is Leadership Development. But today, things are changing and Influence is no longer the  “Power Factor” of Success with people in a Home business.


People today are not looking as much for Influence as something that stirs them up on the inside in a positive way and they FEEL the message-not just hear it or see it.

 Impact is the force that “something hits something else.”

What FORCE does your message for your company have?

What Impact does it carry?

What does your prospect FEEL from you and your company?

Take Nike.

That company has Impact with a slogan, or “meme” that you cannot forget. “Just do It.™

That carries with it Impact that amplifies Influence to take action.

And what today’s consumers and prospects are looking for is no longer to be Influenced to just DO something– but Impacted so they FEEL something and be moved by it emotionally and psychologically.

 Many people today create a weaker influence than they should, and thusly it weakens their results as well as actions.

Create and impact with your message and product.


Make a BOLD statement.

 Make an Extraordinary Promise.

Ask a thought provoking question.

Create a word picture that draws people towards you.

Display an image that tells a story-liker the Apple Ipod advertisements – just a silhouette that tells a story.

 Take your prospects somewhere away in their mind with the sharing of your business and where it could take them.

Amplify your Passion and get people magnetized to listen because of what is pouring out of you. THAT creates Impact.

 Influence will always be important NO DOUBT.

But today, Impact is Imperative in your network marketing home business.

Social Media MLM – Do YOU Know the New Rules of Home Business?


network marketing mlm

mlm home business new rules


Social Media MLM.

How does someone go about changing their home business success DAILY?

Would you like to discover how to do that?

Do YOU know the New Rules of Home business and what they can do for your network marketing business?

There is a reality for 2012 that will hit every network marketer between the eyes:

In the Home Business arena today, there are three very important words that are more than true.

 Things Are Changing. 

Those 3 words are right at the very core of a shift in the Home Business and Network Marketing Profession. What worked 5 years ago, may not work today, as there are New Rules that have been laid over the Home Business grid, and either you play by them-or you don’t.

If you do not, then that can end up possibly working against you in the long run.

 Many MLM companies have come and gone over the years, and I have seen some succeed wildly, and others struggle massively. And there many times is no rhyme or reason why it happens. But today, with the introduction of the new Rules of Social Media and Mobile Marketing and Recruiting in Home Business, things are transforming right before our eyes.

 The same traditional unchanging principles will always work for your Home business, but the approach to them are changing as we speak, and transitioning many companies either into dynamos – or dinosaurs.

Depending on the decisions being made, the same thing can be said for Teams in Network Marketing. Some teams are accelerating their growth like crazy through mobile recruiting and social media, while others look at those teams as if they are crazy. All this is occurring because of the introduction of Social Media Marketing and Mobile Recruiting and Marketing in the Home Business Profession.

 There is a New Marketplace evolving in the network marketing arena and we must accept that.

 There are New Rules that we have found that absolutely must be embraced and internalized, if you are going to embrace Success in this New Social Mobile Marketplace. Yes, you can still do it the old fashioned way and succeed, but it today is a longer and harder path than what lies before you with the New Rules of home Business Success.

 Let’s see what they are.

 New Rule 1: Today, it is NO Longer about just Conversion, but Conversation. Conversion is VERY important, but Conversation is IMPERATIVE.

 The focus of Network Marketing has always been and generally always will be converting people into customers or distributors. That is the thrust of most businesses –at least gaining new customers. But today’s companies that are accelerating sales massively are not focused on just conversion, as many people today are tired of “The Pitch.” Ask anyone you know.

 They are looking for something MORE- Conversation.

People today have been pitched, sold, recruited, called, pressured, hassled, manipulated, congregated, and have become totally frustrated with the old ways of communication from Network Marketers.

People are tired of the mlm pitch-and want THE PATH.

They want a Conversation that leads them to NEW Ideas, New Possibilities, New Thinking, and New Solutions to problems that no one else has taken the time to give them.


You be the one.

You be the leader they are looking for and lead them with words that guide and direct to Value and Solutions-not just Volume and Selling.

 Look at the highly successful companies today. They are playing by New Rules and adopting New Tactics.

 So should you.

The new way to start the conversion process today is back off—and hold a CONVERSATION- about the prospect, their challenges, your solutions, and how the two can intertwine.  It can be online through Social Media Conversation, or through Mobile devices, or it can be offline and through face to face or voice to voice Conversation.

Make each prospect the superstar of your conversation and make it about their wants and desires. Take them to places of possibility that they never thought possible through the New Media. If you do, you will be holding many more conversations with them as your new Success partner in your mlm home business.

MLM Training Secrets- 3 MLM Secrets on How to Soar Above a Bad Economy

mlm home business

mlm soaring home business


MLM Training Secrets.

If you could learn three secrets to Network Marketing would you LEARN them and not just read them?

Would accelerating your home business be something that you would want to happen in a DAILY BASIS?

Here are 3 MLM Training Secrets that will help explode your MLM business quickly.

MLM secrets 1:

People are looking for “Destiny Insurance.”

They are looking to be “insured’ with their income, jobs, housing, mortgage, and cars. They are looking for “Lifestyle Insurance.” They Are looking for “Excuse Insurance” so their excuses will be valid during these tough times.
But the best insurance for today’s tough times is REASSURANCE that reassures the prospect that they will be ok, they will be moving forward, and they will be in a BETTER PLACE next year then they are now- by working with you.
People are looking for Reassurance in their life direction. “I understand that you are worried- but let me assure you that you do not have to feel that way, as there is an incredible answer. It is taking control with your own business from home.”
People are looking to be reassured that NO MATER WHAT HAPPENS– they will be fine and their family will be as well.
Reassure your prospect- to insure – their moving forward with you.
MLM Training Secret Secret 2

Talk Smaller Goals and Goals that are more reachable. That is where people are During Tough Times.
People during tough times have a tendency to “downsize their dreams.”

They have a tendency to think, act, and accept smaller due to the Fear factor. When you are talking to a prospect- TALK WHERE THEY ARE.
Do NOT make the mistake of talking where they are NOT and they miss your message. You start talking to them where THEY ARE– not where you are.
Start where their mindset is.

Talk where their focus is.

Talk where their heart is.

This is what they understand and comprehend. Ask, “What is the ONE THING you want to do this year because of these tough times?’ And then listen to what they say. They are telling you what they want and are looking to happen.
Then you help them make that happen with your business. “I agree- that is important and I am there with you. This is what I have done and would love to walk this path of Success together as a team.”
MLM Training Secret 3

You first must LISTEN to the prospect and listen to their language. If they are saying anything about the economy and the times, you need to make a mental note of that. They are worried and looking for help.
Then you CONNECT with the prospect. “I can relate to that and you are so right. Things are a little tough right now- but we can help change that.” Connection is the forerunner to New Direction.
Then you AGREE with the prospect. “I agree with you that you must do something-change something-and I am right there with you.” 

MLM Training Secret:  “Agreement is the forerunner to Partnership.”

Read that AGAIN!
Then you TRANSITION them to a New Possibility. ‘Here is an idea that we have found that has really helped people during these times, and I think can help a lot of people. Imagine NOT being worried about the economy because you have no income worries. How would that FEEL?”
LCAT —  Listen-Connect-Agree-Transition.

 That is a MUST during any economic times- but especially TODAY for your mlm home business success.

5 Powerful MLM Recruiting Tips No One will Teach YOU

MLM Training- 3 Secrets on How to EXPLODE Business During Tough Times

mlm home business

mlm home business slump


MLM Tough Times? Not Here.

What would some secrets to getting through tough times with a home business help?

Are you open to looking at your mlm home business through a different perspective then the average do?

There are many secrets to this business and working it during tough times can be a bit of a challenge. But if you know what to do, then it can be a piece of cake!

What are some of the things that you need to do to create a business explosion with your network marketing business?

MLM Success Secret 1:

Understand the Psychology of People During Tough Economic times.

People today are worried about their income and lifestyle. It is that simple. They are worried about being laid off, not being able to pay their bills, and what the future holds. Let’s be real folks…The last thing they want from a network marketing professional  is a “pitch.” ‘Pitching” people during “Tough Economic Times” (TET) is the last thing you want to do.
People you talk to want more than to be another “pitch’ or presentation.

They are looking for CONNECTION to something that will guide them and lead them to a more powerful income possibility and more secure future for their family. People today aren not looking for another “job,” but something beyond that. Something that makes sense to them. Something that they feel can move them forward during these TET.
You want to CONNECT to them, and then CONNECT them to an emotion that says ‘Things are going to be OK.” You need to be understanding, and empathetic to the prospect, and come across like you care.
Do NOT pitch the prospect. Listen. Empathize. Understand. Offer a path out of the worry they are feeling.
MLM Success Secret 2:

Deal in Reality- NOT Misery.

 When you are talking to your prospect, do not agree with their misery if they are talking that way. Deal in a NEW reality -the reality that they can change their position and place in this economy with your help.  Most people are dealing in a Misery of FEAR. You need to move them past that fear. You need to move them past that emotion. You need to get them to see that there is a Success Reality that is available and not just an economic misery. 
Give them a DOOR- Dose Of Ongoing Reality

And lead them through that door with showing them how normal and average people that are in your company, are getting past the misery and fear that you see all over the media. Let them know that they do not have to settle for what the media and news is telling them.
Reality is what you decide it is. Let them know that. What is REAL for you, is what you decide is real. Success is as real during tough times as it is during prosperous times. Show them the way. Give them a path. Open the door. Lead them through it.  Say, “You can have the life that you want, and during tough times, it is easier than during great times. More people are open to change and doing something different.”  Give them the Reality of Hope and keep them focused on that. 
MLM Success Secret 3:

There were more Millionaires Birthed during the Great Depression than any other 7 year period in the history of our country.

 This secret is HUGE. When you are talking with folks, you need to say that. “You may not be aware of it, but there were more millionaires created during the Great Depression than any other time in our nation’s history. This is THE time right now- to start creating wealth in our lives. You just need a direction and a plan-would you agree?”
TET are what you are looking to change as a marketer.

You need to change the Great Depression to the Great Incubator.

During these times, you are going to be either outside of the Millionaire Incubator, or INSIDE of the Millionaire Incubator. You need to ask what makes more sense to the prospect.
“Which makes more sense to you? Taking advantage of these economic times, or letting them take advantage of you?”
The LISTEN to what they say.
Their answer will speak volumes.

These are three secrets for getting through tough times in your network marketing home business.

45.  Offer a free drawing on a video and viral market it over social media.
46.  Promote shows that you have a booth with, and ask friends to come by.

47.  Describe, highlight, and promote  how to sponsor a PBR during every event you do. “I aml ooking for PBR Partners that want to make earn some great rewards by working with me for a night.”
48.  Be friendly and focus on talking about the guests ONLY —-not yourself–when you meet them…simple but a MUST to get possible referrals 
49.  Follow through with 42 hours on every possible PBR/ Luncheon/ Breakfast sponsor  lead and referral (VERY IMPORTANT!) 
50. ASK, ASK, ASK.  – You have what many people are looking for… 
51. Use open- ended questions, especially when dealing with conversations…and LISTEN to what they say for possible opening for your products and business! 
52.  Use ALL your products  at home, office, camping, parties, etc. Are their products that you may be missing talking about? 
53. Go to book stores, and read sales, self improvement and positive thinking books-input power- SO YOUR OUTPUT WILL BE EMPOWERED! Talk to others at the store who do the same thing! 
54.  Call at least two potential referrals every night-“You have people you care for don’t you? Who do you know that is having trouble financially – Wants to feel better about life – Wants more security – Wants more energy? I can help them.” 
55.  Dream and imagine the possibilities that you have been missing…what about the strip malls in your town? Take a brochure to them and ask for a referral. 
(This reallt works if you do it.)

56.  Set weekly prospecting goals and review them constantly.  Post them where you can see them…why? Your subconscious will start you moving towards them when you are not even aware of it! And it will become a part of your presence when you recruit or retail.  

57.  Ask friends to help you get started to reach a certain goal-get a “Support Team” that will help encourage you and help you and refer you- online as well as offline. 

58.  Use benefits flyers- products are sold on benefits, not just the ingredients. People buy drills because they want holes, not the drill! 
59.  Use postcards and or newsletters to continue to spark interest…”Are you aware that you CAN have the money you want? Don’t spend thousands on empty promises . We have an idea we would like to share with you that has made such a difference in our lives…” 
60.  Follow up phone calls to particularly interested people you have chatted with and tell them you appeciated the conversation. Most do not follow up. They may decide later to set a time for an appointment. 
61.  Do a review of your products on video, posts, articles, and audio. Get theat out on social media.

62.  Give  products as gifts or donations to charities, churches, and other opportunities. 
63.  Don’t be shy talking about your products or your business when in a crowd or with people. Tell your personal story, and ask if they know anyone who might need the benefits of your products.  
64.  Smile when talking on the phone. Simple idea, but people will feel it, and response to it. Nervous people rarely smile on the phone. 
65.  Review orders from past PBRs – who have bought frequently, etc.  Call them, facebook them, tweet them, or reconnect with them via email. Fill them in on a new product, or event, and invite them to lunch with you.
66.  Be prepared to answer questions about your work…don’t be thinking when you should be talking. Have a response ready at all times. 
67.  Write down names and numbers of people who “owe you a favor” then follow up…they will be a great help with opening doors. 
68.  Call the most familiar people first, and make the conversation an “I need your help” conversation. 
69.  Call potential customers who postponed on you, and ask if you can meet with them this week. 
70.  Spend time every day working on some aspect of our business… but MAKE IT A VOLUME PRODUCING aspect! 
71.  Be willing to share the business opportunity…not just the products. There are TWO products…The Retailing Product line… and the Business Product! 
72.  Call anyone who has said maybe or sometime…and if they are still saying this, ask for a referral. 
73.  Advertise in football, basketball, or musical programs…THIS WORKS! Been there done that! And sold product and recruited off of it! 

74.  Leave your business cards on bulletin boards or in local businesses… this is simply creating a potential exposure… YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS LOOKING! 
75.  Talk about upcoming events with everyone on social media as well as offline. Invite them to a special event that is coming up. 
76.  Donate a basket to a local radio station to give-away during special holiday (mother’s day, Valentines day, etc) Sponsored by your company. You could even donate a brochure with it! 
77.  Keep a list of special interested folks in your success, and keep them abreast of your Successes and remind them you are looking for some leaders.
78.  Create a facebook fanpage and give away something for free to build a list for your marketing efforts.

79.  Offer an extra bonus for people who are willing to hold  PBRs on days and for months when you need the volume and it is down to the wire. 
80.  Give extra service and time to good customers and PBR partners – they will be repeat PBR Hosts, and potential distributors down the road. 
81. Carry a notepad to jot down names of prospects as you think of them. This works as you always run across people who you can follow up with later! 
82.  Let all PBR or luncheon guests keep a product brochure or catalogue.  They can keep it on hand or pass around work. This happens more than you think! 

83. ‘People that care about you.’  A warm or Hot market is a great place to start…but ask yourself a question…  who really cares about my success and future? Start there and ask for their help.  You will be surprised how emotions can be of benefit to you…If they do care about you,  They will listen to you and try to help…  

84. ‘People you truly care about.’ Who do you truly care about and want to see have a great life? Start there.  Your compassion and caring will come through and impact in a positive way.  People liked to be thought of, and this is a way to make that happen, and also to  show your feelings towards their future and Life…  

85. ‘People that you know that care about the same things… ‘ Who has a commonality with you in caring for the same things? Maybe in a club or church, or an association. You have already established that you have something in common that matters to you both. And your business would be a great way to expand that relationship. 

86. ‘Follow your Dollar.’  Who do you do business with? Who do give money to on a regular basis? Whether it is shopping or getting something repaired or simply paying to have something done that is who you want to target. Who did you buy your car from? Who sells you your clothing and groceries? Follow your dollar. There is a gold mine their in contacts and potential sales. They may be hesitant about joining you , but ask for referrals. They owe them to you

87. ‘The Goldmine on your desk.’  Most folks have some form of a Rolodex or card case on their desk, or in their planner. But most have a listing of who they have gathered cards from. Even in their palm pilot. Most Business owners have a great Rolodex but less than 10% of the cards produce revenues for them. Turn your or their Rolodex into a Goldmine that produces a secondary revenue source for them, by contacting the cards in the rolodex, and increase the value of their contacts.  ‘What percentage of your rolodex is currently producing you any type of revenue source? 2%? 5%?  If there was a way to increase that to 15-20%…would you want to know about it?’  

88. ‘Referrals.’  This business is not for everyone…but everyone knows someone who it is for. Ask. And it really depends on how you ask, that determines the response.’ Obviously this isn’t for you, but if you were me, who would be the first 2 people you would call to share this with? And then call them.  “Hello Mary? My name is Doug, and I promised Tom I would give you a call to share an idea he thought you would enjoy.’  

89. ‘Business owners you know…or someone else knows them.’  Business owners, especially small business owners are always looking for ways to increase value to their employees, and to increase the bottom line to their company. A lot of business owners have found Network Marketing to be a great secondary profit center for their business……..and they all have associations they belong to….with other business owners……A good way to prospect them is to ask for their advice on Marketing…..and their help. Don’t forget the Goldmine on their desk.  

90. ‘Stay at Home moms.’  One of the fastest growing sectors in MLM is the stay at home mom. Many women professionals are starting to leave their jobs and careers to spend time with their family. Values seem to be changing, and with that comes a great opportunity to help them reclaim the income they lost and they already have proven themselves in the workforce. And over 70% of all networkers… are women.  

91. ‘Chamber of Commerce.’  Every city has a Chamber and most are all business minded which means a goldmine for sales and referrals, and even some distributors. Join your chamber or at least attend some functions and get a listing of members. And here is an INFERNO Secret to recruit: Establish a relationship and ask for their help, and refer business to them.

92. ‘Civic/Charitable organizations.’  Join a Civic group to first make a difference in your city, not just to network. And become known as a go getter and helper, and as you do these things, ask for people’s referrals. And maybe a time you could let them try your products. But understand – FIRST make a difference in the group, and then you will have a better chance of making a difference with them with your business.  

93.  Print Shop Managers/Owners. Put a brochure in their place advertising your product or recruit them for a secondary revenue source.

94. Book Store Managers/ Owners- Spend time in the bookstore talking to like minded people who are looking for books on Success and Leadership.

95.  Restaurant Manager/ Owner- Put a fish bowl in there and buy 4 business lunches. Draw the winner and keep the cards weekly to contact.

96. CPA- Who doe she/he know who is looking for an additional revenue source?

97. Attorney- Who does he/she know who is looking for a second start in life after bankruptcy?

98.  Stock Broker

99. Jewelry Store Manager/Owner

100. Service Station Owner

101. Local Pharmacy owner

3 Quick Tips on Creating KILLER Prospecting Content

Social Media MLM- What is More Important – Contacts or Content?

mlm social media home business

social media mlm writing


Social Media MLM.

Are you focused on creating content for your network marketing home business?

Are you blogging and filming videos daily to create content so prospects will engage your writing so they may contact you for your MLM home business?

Content is King.

Content is what has been driving the internet for over 20 years. It has been in many forms and especially in the beginning of the internet. It was quite simple and quite different than it is today.

Social Media  is all about great, usable content and we get that. But recently there have been a lot of folks on Social Media that are saying that it is your NUMBER of  CONTACTS that matter.

The debate goes on and it appears that there are 2 sides to the question.

 Which one are YOU on?

Taking Sides.

One side are the marketers that market on facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, youtbe, and other social sites. They market their trainings and information products.

The other side are the bloggers and creatives that want to give great content and revelation that folks can use and grow from. (Full disclosure – I provide content as well on many sites or social media and marketing from home professionals.)

Nothing wrong with either.

Marketers have  a valid argument, as they bring new ideas and new products to the marketplace.

Creatives have a valid argument as well, as they bring new how tos and teachings to the marketplace.

One says that it is all about QUANTITY of followers and friends you have.

The other says that it is all about the QUALITY of Content you provide that will create the Numbers of followers and friends you have.

Who Is Right?

Both may be right as far as their focus. Marketers need numbers to market their wares and information. This us how marketing is done and has been that way for hundreds of years.

But things are changing. New Marketing is starting to take ahold in the marketplace and transform the process of marketing online. Information and Content are driving a LOT of the marketing efforts now. That is what we do as well. We market using creative content that folks seem to like, and then with their permission, we will send them some future information that may see benefit in maybe ordering.

Seth Godin calls it “Permission Marketing” and that has been around for several years.

But seems that it has taken a while for folks to get it and understand the concepts of it. This is what is creating this great debate – Content or Contacts.

Here is my take-

Rule of Social Media- HOT, USABLE, FRESH Content that is virally marketed will DRIVE the Number of Contacts you obtain quicker than just about anything. Folks are HUNGRY for answers, solutions, howtos, and information.

You need both.

You need rocking Hot Content to brand your message and to get virally marketed, as well as a lot of folks to market it to. And you do this by building your list one follower and one friend at a time.

A List of what To Do.

1. Give away a free ebook. Folks will give you a look and maybe become a friend or follower.

FREE Social Media Recruiting ebook- “Social Recruiting Power”

2. Give away a free download. Folks will give you a look and maybe even send it to their friends.

New Rules of Home Business ebook

3. Have a HOT blog post or gift and put it on a pdf. It will be sent around and folks will follow you just from that gift.

103 Success Quotes FREE from Doug Firebaugh

It is not hard to do. Create Content that folks will want to use and apply to their life and business. But make sure that you do something that is CRITICAL to building the numbers of friends and followers.

ASK them to Follow you and Become friends with you.  BE BOLD! 

You will notice everywhere on PassionFire website are social “follow tags” that you can use.

That is NO mistake. I would like for YOU to follow me on twitter as I do send out some HOT findings (urls, blogs, videos, podcasts, etc) in the social sphere that we can all learn from. 

And one More tip: Promote OTHERS in your efforts. Become a “powerful promoter. You will notice that I use a LOT of names and links in some of the posts that I send out. This is to let folks know of these folk’s work, as well as let the person know that I admire their work and learn from it.

This is how that you BLEND Content with Contacts.

I call it  “Content Blending” and it WORKS great for social media marketers.

Add contacts to your facebook notes, videos and insert them in blog posts, podcasts,  video posts, and even keywords.

Blend names into your tweets using @theirname in your message-and also Retweet –put “RT” before your message or other folks tweets on twitter as that will be a way to promote them as well.

And also in groups, use other folks names in your communication as well as this will shw that you are connected to folks in that group as well.

Bottom Line –Content Blending” will assist you in building your list, and answer the debate of whether Content or Contacts is more important.  DOUBLE the power of BOTH by making sure that you have HOT content in all you do and then blend some contacts and promote others as you do it, and you will find your numbers of contacys rocking in your social media marketing efforts for your home based business in network marketing.

MLM Recruiting- The Magnetic Secret of Solution Based Recruiting

mlm recruiting home business

mlm recruiting network marketing


MLM Solution Recruiting.

Are you practicing Solving problems or creating ones in your mlm home business?

What if you could discover a powerful way to recruit that has proven to work but rarely anyone teaches?

How would that create an excitement to go out and talk to new home business prospects?

There is a Golden Law in Online as well as offline recruiting that we teach and it truly is all part of the process of understanding how to sponsor people.

What is that Golden law?

People are looking to be SOLVED not SOLD. People are looking for Answers, not Products.

With that in mind, then you have the beginning of a higher understanding of Network marketing recruiting. You will look at your prospect with a much different view. You will see them as people that are LOOKING FOR SOMETHING– versus YOU wanting something. Often the home business professional wants something from the prospect versus has something FOR the prospect.

There is a name for it, and it is an amazing way to recruit for your mlm home based business.

The name of the process is called:

“Solution Based Recruiting.”

This is where ALL your focus and efforts for sponsoring someone is put in one thing:


Solution based Recruiting has 3 powerful advantages:

1. It creates the conversation that the prospect automatically will connect to.

2. It PULLS the prospect towards the conversation as they sense you have something they are looking for.

3. It creates MOVEMENT in the prospect emotionally, as they think “Finally! Someone that can help me!”

Solution Based Recruiting involves taking the time to find out what kind of challenges that the home business prospects have and then help them discover through you, a viable and enduring SOLUTION for that challenge.

If they have a health challenge, then you simply talk to them about the Solution you are introducing to the marketplace.

If they have an income challenge, as many prospects do, you are introducing a Solution into the marketplace that helps solve that problem.

You get the picture.

How do you find their Great Challenge in their life?

If you are on facebook or google+ then look at their posts and you will see them talking about it. All you have to do is tell them you can help them solve that issue.

If you are talking to them face to face or on a phone call, then you simply ask them this powerful question:

“If you think about it, what is your greatest challenge today that you would like to get rid of?”

From the very beginning, you are SOLUTION FOCUSED.

This mlm recruiting secret has recruited tens of thousands of prospects and will work for you. FOCUS on SOLUTIONS for your mlm prospect and watch an explosion start to happen in your home business mlm recruiting.

MLM Training- 3 CORE Secrets of Personal Branding NO ONE TEACHES

MLM Home Business Personal Branding

How would you like to discover 3 secrets of Personal branding for network marketing that will skyrocket your home business BRAND?

Would you like to know how to accelerate your brand beyond what most people could imagine?

Well, that is the reason for this post. To help you with your Personal Branding efforts as well as results that you can achieve a few small tweaks.

Personal Branding is critical today in your home business marketing. But there are three CRITICAL Rules that you MUST adhere to if you are going to create a powerful brand. Most that attempt to create a powerful brand often end up with less then the power they wanted, and sometimes are still invisible.

THAT is simply not acceptable!

I have been building a brand online for 15 years, and have been blessed with a brand that is very recognizable in many arenas of our profession. You can do the same thing embracing and engaging these 3 Branding Secrets I am talking about.

And the power of these secrets have proven to create a brand of STEEL that will last and endure over time. And it DOES take time for Personal Branding in MLM to take a hold and create the visibility you are looking for.

That is why we teach “CORE” Secrets with Personal Branding.

What does CORE stand for?

“Consistent Ongoing Relentless Elevation.”

That says it all as far as your brand and what you need it do ot for you.

Here are 3 secrets that helped us build a 7 Figure Brand:

1. Relentless REPETITION.

The Power of Repetition is one of the most powerful “branding irons” that you can have. It will mark an IMPRESSION in a person’s mind, and in their memory as well. You MUST REPEAT your “Branding meme” over and over and over. This is part of the Personal Branding Track that you must travel.

What people see REPEATED can create  “mental hook” in their minds, and they will REMEMBER more of who you are and what you do.


WHAT do you and your Brand represent? What is your MESSAGE and what is that supposed to DO with people? What kind of EMOTION do you  represent in your brand? What kind of PICTURE does your brand represent and paint in the prospect’s mind?

What is the WHY that is represented with your brand? WHY should they listen to you? WHY are you someone they SHOULD listen to?

Representation will catalyze motivation.

3. Rock Solid REPUTATION.

One of the fastest growing segments of the managing of brands is what is called “Reputation Management.” This is where you manage what is being said about you, and for you.

What kind of reputation do you want your brand to have? What are your plans to create that reputation? What are your objective and goals to reach that level of pristine reputation?

Reputation is the GOLD of a Brand and is worth more than words can say.

You should strive to have a:

Honest Reputation.

Leadership Reputation.

Effective Reputation.

The BEST Reputation.

Unshakable Reputation.

Repetition, Representation, and Reputation.

ALL 3 of these are CRITICAL in your Personal branding. Make sure that you embrace and engage these in your mlm home business personal branding.
