The Dirty Truth About network marketing That you Must Know
and Understand If You Ever Want to Succeed
"

Here it is: ( I just got this from daegan smith, the king of never having to call a lead and had to share with you!)

On the surface, network marketing companies appear to be
thriving communities of consuming customers all happy with
the product that they are consuming and they really are, but
what drives that community of thriving consumers has
absolutely nothing to do with the product itself.

Let's think about this statement.

Let me ask you a question:

Why did you decided to get started in a network marketing
business?

You don't have to say anything out loud but answer this
question in your head right now to yourself.

I guarantee you answer is somewhere along these lines "Well,
I started my business because I wanted to make some extra
money and who knows maybe even become financially free."

Am I right?

Well let me ask you another question now.

When you prospect and talk to leads about your business what
do you talk to them about?

Most likely you try to stick to the corporate script which
inevitable ends up with your prospect asking you questions
about your network marketing companies products or services.

And by the end of the conversation you've lost control of
the call and both you and your prospect end up confused
(usually get somewhere between details about your companies
product or service and the compensation plan).

You get of the phone and hope that my some grace of god your
prospect you paid $5 to confuse will decided to join your
business.

Likely story!

Here's why:

Successful Network Marketing has NOTHING to do with selling
your prospect on your product at ALL!

To the contrary, the only thing that you should EVER talk to
your prospect about is the same thing that got you sold on
your companies business . . . More Money and Financial
freedom!

You see network marketing is built on financial hopes and
dreams and honestly, if you're looking for business builders
to recruit into your organization your prospects hopes and
dreams of financial success are the only thing that you
should speak to them about, so they can sell themselves on
it.

As an illustration of this principle think about the
situation this way, if you had equal amounts of your
company's product in one hand and money in the other which
do you think your prospect would choose?

The top money earners know the answer to that question and
that's how why make all there money!

Here's the other shift in perspective that you're going to
have to make if you want to have ultimate success with your
business and it's simply a logical continuation on the point
just discussed.

What you think of as your company's product is NOT its real
product at ALL!

Do you think your network marketing company's product is its
moon juice or long distance service?

If you do you're very wrong.

Continuing on from my last point, remember your network
marketing business will not grow if you just push product it
will only grow if you sell people on their financial
dreams.

So if you think about it, your company's real product is
it's sales training and marketing system. The better your
company's marketing system is able to help you generate
sales the better any more quickly you will be able to reap
the financial benefits of your business.

To extend this point further, eventually you'll want your
downline to do all the work so you don't have to.

The simpler and more effective the marketing system plus the
strong the training your company provides the easier your
system will duplicate.

If you want to think about it in its most simple form, your
company's real product is its duplicability.

If you find a system that is easy to duplicate and you can
have your prospect "sell themselves" on their financial
dreams you will have a highly successful network marketing
business.

Your Job is Simple:

Find people that want to attain financial freedom your way
and then shorten their learning curve so that they can go
out and do the same.

Now that technology has exploded where even the youngest school children are getting their own smartphones at an early age, you are seeing a change in the way people learn. Many may be taking time away from their books and Cd purchases and instead downloading ebooks, audiobooks, digital files and Podcasts for instant gratification.

The focus here is on the later of these file types, the "Podcast". A Podcast is basically an electronic file that is in audio format, often an mp3 that can easily be downloaded onto a computer or smartphone, iPad/iPhone etc. This allows someone the opportunity to start listening right away. If you are in a business, this is a phenomenal way to get your content out to the masses quickly and very cost effective.

Using a program like audacity, you can easily record your message and save as an mp3 format, upload it to your own web hosing program or to many free sources that will take a file. You will often get a link so you know where to send your visitors to. If you are an experienced online marketer, you know about cloaking your links to protect your content, otherwise, people might figure it out (which could be a problem if you are trying to sell the mp3).

If you want to sound more professional you can add professional quality voice overs, intro/exit music and theme music, and this all can come easier with practice. There are of course many services out there that will do it all for you, but that will kind of defeat the purpose of your gain. When you make it big, this might be something to visit in regards to outsourcing your work.

To make yourself available, so the world of smartphones and iPads can find you, you can submit your work to sites like iTunes. Where there is a large amount of free downloadable podcasts. Weekly updates or radio shows are available as well that members can subscribe to get your weekly content. If you plan on giving away free content though, I would suggest keeping it basic and not giving away all your tips. For the big tips, save these for the paid members or a special forum of elite subscribers that you can monetize later on with a similar product that you make or are affiliated with.

There are many professesions who can benefit from podcasts both as a teaching and learning tool, so do not think you do not have what it takes in order to be successful with podcasts. If you set aside 15 minutes you could probably get one online and see just how easy it is!

David Gardner, of http://FreePodcastProfits.com thinks you can learn quickly how to take a simple podcast and use it to promote and grow your business or even teach someone something new!

As the world of cellular and mobile device technology continues to evolve, you need to evolve with it. Whether you believe in evolution or not, you will become extinct if you do not evolve with the changing times. It seems that survival of the fittest comes into play as well as those internet marketers who have made adaptations to their websites will be the ones who survive as mobile devices will display a web page differently then a normal computer browser.

I am sure you have taken note of this before when you look at the same website on different computers between work, school, home, the library etc. If the dimensions are not suitable for your viewing medium, you may see pictures aligned wrong, or not there at all. Text that should have looked nice, is jumbled or overlapping. The problems go on and on.

If you have internet access on your mobile device, such as a smart phone, iPad, iPhone etc., you may have noticed you can not see everything you need when you view through these smaller devices. Scrolling becomes a mess and you often can not navigate as well as you would like to. There must be an easier way.

That way is through "Mobile Landing Pages" which are designed specifically to be smaller in dimensions and have limited information so that they get right to the point and yet still draw in new clients to whatever it is your goal is. Perhaps an internet marketer wants to give away a free ebook or audio of a report or interview, they can set up a capture page (also known as an opt-in page, landing page as well as some other names) and easily ask for a first name and email address to send the report to. The new client would then get an email directing them to the correct information assuming there was an autoresponder set up or a direct link to the product on the following page.

I had to of course check this out to believe it and what other way to do it but to check out some of my own sites to see where I was having issues. I borrowed my brother in laws iPhone and started tapping in the domain names to some of my websites and low and behold, they sure seemed to have issues with appearance on these smaller devices.

Some of the things I noticed that would deter a person from getting what they needed out of my site as well as would keep them from becoming a member of my list include but were not limited to are below:

1) The font size is dramatically reduced

2) scrolling options and navigation of the larger view did not all show up on my screen

3) Some of the videos were not mobile friendly and would not load

4) My opt-in box was not visible on top of the fold (this means on the top portion of what you see and therefore should not have to scroll around to find)

5) my links seemed to blend together when two words separated by a space or comma were present.

As you can see, these are all issues that would quickly deter a person away from your site. Why spend more time fighting with a site, when you can find another one right? This is exactly what you do not want to happen of course. You want them to stay with your site and opt in to your report, audio etc.

By having the appropriate set up or possible options in your web design, you will make your customer experience an easier one. The old saying of KISS comes to play here with Keep It Simple Silly (or substitute whatever else for the second 'S') where you really do not want to overwhelm the site visitor.

The whole point of a mobile device with internet capabilities is to make things quick and easy so people do not have to fight around in an effort to find your information. These devices are limited already in size, so you need to adapt if you are to survive these changes. I realize they are making larger touchpads, which solve some of the issues, but you do not see to many people walking around with a huge iPad in their back pocket or in line at the grocery store.

If you have advertising out in the real world, people are looking for instant gratification to look you up on the road and be able to experience what you have to offer without having to struggle with limited dexterity and typing on a smaller touchpad. Any change you can make to ease the customer experience will be one that will benefit you and your business in the long run so that you continue to evolve and be the leader.
