Should I Look at Your Compensation Plan?

Marketing is not what it used to be. Today you have to reach for more than a home party to make money at network marketing. So here are some things you should question before you start building your business with any company.

Is the compensation plan worth your time? That means an income stream that will support a steady flow of income. The training, product and an earning potential is powerful. You want to draw interest to your prospects. Those of us that work with a powerful earning team know how important it is to get what a person needs in their hands as soon as possible so that they can start making other money right away. A powerful plan that they can duplicate is important when adding a company to their business plan. How do you make money with this? By earning residual income, customers and recruiting.

Today entrepreneur are tomorrow’s teachers. Building a company that supports a team of business investors that count on the opportunities in place to recruit is much different from the news juice or supplement they offer. You can work yourself to death for a couple of dollars if the compensation plan is not worth the paper it’s on. See it doesn’t matter how great the product is unless you are the one who developed it. You need to distribute it. The hype about how much money we are going to make, means nothing unless you put it into the hands of the people driven to succeed. The entrepreneur will know whether they can work with your opportunity and will do what it takes to succeed. You are developing business relationship with people just like you who want to profit from the time and money they invest. These people are there to teach so that we all will profit.

Investing time and money on an opportunity is emotionally hard when you start. We work closely with you based on what our needs are. This is what is important to our company and the team of people I work with. The opportunity is not to work hard, it is to work smarter. The companies that want you to distribute their products through direct sales will do the research, testing the products, produce and ship the product and pay you to do it.

If the compensation plan that is worth your time and when everything is in place you are hungry to start, like bees to a meadow of flowers. We know that your plan will make it easy for us to present the opportunity to an entrepreneur and they will eat it up like nectar.

The fact is, time is our most valuable asset and we don’t want to waste it. Your opportunity is the tool we use to help people realize that they can succeed at owning their own business. You supply what we need and in turn we deliver your product and opportunity to the next generation of entrepreneur. So the things I look for in a compensation plan are can you build a business around it, Is it teachable to others, will it produce residual income.

Study the complain plan, asks questions and take part in a recruiting webinar and meeting to see if the person presenting the offer is giving you what you need to succeed. The compensation plain is more than the opportunity it is the person behind it. Do they have what it takes to train you to do what they do and show you how to earn that residual income? We are entrepreneurs and we hold ourselves at a higher standard when it comes to our business and when you put an offer on the table you have to back it up with action or we will go find someone who will.

Team Opportunity Are Creating Marketing Leaders

Team opportunity does not come knocking, you have to go out and find it. You wouldn’t eat something new without smelling it first. Get ready for an experience that will change your life for the better. You must take on this task as if your life depends on it and it does.

You are the leader of your team. When you start your business you will want a team that reminds you everyday why you are doing what you are doing! This is not a game or a dress rehearsal. You must work at this like you have never worked before. You will have times of doubt and frustration just like the rest of the team. Everyone has a journey that they go through as they are working towards the success. This is more than a job you have decided to live different the 90% of the world.

That means that you are communicating with others, yes talking. More important that you are listening to the other person and engage in what they have to say.. Showing an interest in what their concerns are and if they are qualified to start a business based on team work. Listen to them maybe they are only interested in making extra money and are will to work to get it.

Communication is 99% of this part of your business and that is because if you don’t listen and pay attention you will not learn what we are trying to teach. You will not be able to teach team building to someone else. The pay off comes when you are living the vision and realizing that your hard work pays more than the lottery will ever pay you. The best way to expand your business is to expand your team.

Set a time that you are reading and learning something new about your business. Apply your training and work on developing a well train your team. Your encouragement and guidance will go a lot farther as your team feels what they are doing is appreciated. The small things mean that you recognize builds the confidence in your team that their efforts will lead them to success.

The role you play in your team is to guide, encourage, praise, and develop a relationship of mutual respect and prosperity. So as you can see if you have developed a great team you will have earned a great team and there is enough wealth to duplicate over and over again.

You are not the person who plays the lottery, you would never trust in the odds that you will win this in your life time. Why would you believe that you could win with those odds? Yet you are the person to pick from the lottery of opportunity to make your vision a reality. Now you are a member of the 10 % that takes control of their life.

Successful Marketers Don’t Give Up

Marketers that are successful don’t give up. I know this is where people are doing business and I want to be a part of this market place. Truth is that their are very few marketers that become the guru that people want to follow. You maybe in the 99% of us that are reaching for the lifestyle but not the fame. That’s great! Still in the game just not the one in front of the camera.

Look at what it takes to make a successful movie; the stars, the directors, the costume designer, the set designer and the list goes on and on. That is the Internet and the market place, each one of us have a row to play in the future success of our company. If you are here you have done the research and you are committed to your success. You are the marketing director and this is your (movie) company. The Job is to get everyone and everything working on the same team. That means 24/7 you are living and thinking how to improve your business. Then the amount of time you work is up to you.

Every ones idea of success is different. We are all ways learning, growing and changing. This market places changes on a daily bases. Technology is getting better thanks to the 1% of the marketers that bring changes to us as soon as they find it. People run the Internet and money controls the market place. Your job is to get people to your web site. Start today and do your job you are the CEO of your company.You need to know where your strengths are follow them. Just wanting something bad enough is not enough. Staying on top of your business is going to be your decision.

You have your why now go for it. When you are living the lifestyle that gives you the most time to spend the way you want, you won’t care if your on the stage. Create your own idea of success. You may not want to be the gurue, just a winning part of a great team. All making great wealth.

I have an opportunity to bring great companies and products to improve lives. See yourself in a roll that only you can do. You may want to lead your own team or work on a team that is successful.  They can lead to a wealth of oppertunity. Everything you do and everyway you grow will only add to your life. This is the easiest way to take control of your finaces you can earn as much as you need.

Start with changing the way you look at your time and how valueble it is. You may find that this is just what you were looking for. Who you decide to work with is easy. Look inside yourself and when you decide what your passions are the choices become clear. There are more then enough opportunities to feed your passion and when you have your niche the sky is the limit.

Look at me I am interested in health products and I find the best products and oppertunities from other marketers. If I like the product I become a customer. So there you have it in a nut shell. I get the products, and I like companies that everyone share in the profits, my cost are low and the company stand behind thier product. As they say this is a win, win for everyone.

Don’t give up it takes time to build a business. If you are going to do business on the Internet you are opening your doors to the world. Your job is to get people to come in to see what you have to offer. You are your business so get out there and socialize, meet people and have fun you are going to be here a while.

Are Your Comments Welcome?

Do you have something substantial to say or are you spamming the blogs that welcome your comments? It takes time to build a site that people take the time to read. Why your comments are never posted on the site? Hmmmmmm
you may not have anything I think others want to read when they come to my site. Some of us take great pride on sharing our tips and tricks if you post spam you should get slammed. This is not the way to get traffic to your business and I would never do business with you. Your first impression is something you cannot do over. Be proud of your opinion have the courage to stand behind you comments. Dropping a link is one thing taking advantage is another. Don’t spam!

The world doesn’t need it and those that read the comments do want it.  Time is one thing we don’t get back and you rob everyone when you leave spam. Like commercials that break in on the best parts of the movie we don’t want it. So again Thanks, to those of you that take the time to read the post and comment seriously about what you read.
We want to be validated that what we do is making a difference.
If you have nothing to say, stay away from the comment tab.

Next time open a discussion on the topic or leave a complement. Mom all ways told me if you don’t have something good to say leave it alone.

Marketers that do credible work are all ways will to share their knowledge with you. It is not that hard to get started and as you learn you will find more than just advice you may find a friend.

I hope you comment on this post, I do it in good faith and would really like to know what you think. D

Successful Businesses On the Internet Know People they Work With Are Real

Successful businesses know answers to these questions that are on your mind as your business grows? I found myself again in this situation. Do you go with the new company or do you cut your losses and move on? If you know its coming it might be worth it to stay, that is if they honor what you sign on for. It has happened to me more than I care to talk about and since I am holding the short end again I will cut and move on.

Preparing yourself is the key to the success of your business. The companies rely on us to recruit, advertise, spending our time and money on building our business around their products and services. You have to realize that every successful business is only as good as the people behind it.

I know that you have to prepare your business and teach your team to do the same. Working with one company is a high risk when your business is on the internet; go in with your eyes wide open. Products come and go. If the company is stable everyone will benefit. There are businesses that grow quickly and sell out from under you leaving you with no product or service to offer.

It is hard to trust the next offer that you feel will improve the outcome of your efforts. That is why having multiple companies in your business model can help to absorb the shock and the aftershocks of financial waves that go through its foundation. The training and support you get from these companies are the same if the teaching come from the top earners in the industry today. So apply what you have learned and use it over and over in your business.

The goal is to take products to the consumers using the internet. Schedule service and work on improving lives by making things easier. The great thing is that everyone wins when you’re with a company that makes decisions with every ones welfare in mind.

There are people who build successful companies as an investment and sell them. Don’t think that it doesn’t happen here, it happens more than you might realize if you’re just starting out. If you own your own business site you can choose to have multiple opportunities and products. New product and opportunities are out there you just have to research them. Find out who are in the top positions, what is their business history and can you work with them.

Building a successful business with multiple streams of income we develop successful relationships with marketers. They are a wealth of what is working for them.

Successful restructuring becomes easy. We share what is happening, We brain storm the next move, Everyone is working towards the filling that space in their business with a successful minded person that benefits everyone on the team. Some may choose to stay with the new company and that’s okay.

Your business is on the internet but, you and the people you work with are real. You may not see every customer that places an order, but they are people and they don’t like left hanging around waiting to see what happens next. Inform them through emails and offer them an alternative. Be honest and things will work out.

Organic and Green Is the Way of the Future

Starting a green internet business is not much different then any other business adventure. Consider all the offers, do your homework and know your product. I found that green and organic products are hot in the market place. This is what more people are looking for and the major companies that produce vitamins, food, juices and dairy for retail know. People are paying more attention to their bodies and what they put in them. They can see value in green, organic and natural product. The world is going green people care where their energy, food and products come from.

The green movement is big bucks and if you’re not considering the opportunities that are in your grasps maybe you should give it some thought. Globally, organic sales reached nearly 51 BILLION in 2008, doubling the 25 BILLION in 2003 (The World of Organic Agriculture). The great thing is that these companies are green and always have been. The rest of the world is now taking notice to the fact that we are killing ourselves with food and products that we use in our lives. Wrap your brain around the fact that you are presenting them with opportunity to change what the use and that you can supply better products to your customers then they might find where they shop now, insuring better health and you deliver to their front door.

The green and organic movement is moving so fast that you need to jump in with both feet.The amount of money you make is up to how much time you’re willing to put in. With any business you have to know your product and give people the opportunity to try it. The company’s supply their franchises with so much training that there is very little for you to do. For a small fee they will set you up with your own site and the rest is up to you. The amount you pay could be as little as ten dollars a month, depending on the company and how they set it up. Some companies you will need a minimum auto ship of product to keep your website and they usually don’t need a monthly fee.

I love these companies they set you up with a website, you get great organic products and when you total it up your paying less for your real estate on the web then you would at the strip mall. I even sell green energy from my computer. Products for solar, wind and electricity are hot. So when you think of going green look at the product that we all use and need for a better tomorrow. Now think can I profit from this? Your answer is yes.

Organics are not going anywhere. In fact the Organic and Green Industry is well on its way to becoming a Multi-trillion dollar industry. We want to improve our heath and live a life with good health. There are companies out there that have done the research and product development all you have to do is share what you think about these products. You are their testimonial, they know how great their product is that’s why they make millions. People want green and we can give them what they want. If you don’t offer them with these products someone else will. Your in business to make money and if what you do is not working, thinking about green and organic it is what most consumers want now.This is the way of the future and an exciting way to go green and organic.

What Makes Your Business and Products Unique?

Today people are looking for something special in the products they want and the opportunities they seek. What makes yours special and different from others they find on the internet? Do you show the value of the products and how they changed your life? Here are somethings to think about when planning a business. No one needs a new restaurant yet there are new ones springing up all the time. Restaurants, at one end of the spectrum, will need well-trained employees with many customer and great advertisers on the other end, all working together to make a profit.

Restaurants with something unique to offer have a well-trained staff ready to bring a culinary delight to each customer. Without advertising, no one would find it or know how special it is and there would not be a profit. If every restaurant had the same menu what makes this one special is its site, the atmosphere, or the staff. The point is you are in charge of your business and unless you bring out the special qualities no will know that you are there. Every part of your business needs a team of people with someone in place to supervisor and take an active role in how they show their reputation to the public. Network Marketing is no different – it needs people to make it work. Each person in your business is unique. Your strength is to bring out these qualities and play up to the strengths of your partners and staff so that your business benefits and grows.

Internet Marketing has many levels of opportunities, if you are an extrovert you can bring your company to the masses through trade show and large events that allow you to set up booths. There are multiple places that you can show the great products and the unique opportunities that your business has to offer. The way you advertise is up to you; flyers, bumper stickers, drop cards or events all are useful. Not everyone is comfortable putting themselves out in front; they may not want to make the phone calls, or address groups of people and yet they may excel when it comes to writing ads, newsletters, emails and blogs.

The fact is to help your business grow you must help others qualify and understand that they can choose how they want to share the business opportunity with others. They should start in their comfort zone and challenge themselves to grow as their business grows. As they grow their business the people they select from will have their own unique qualities to bring. By sharing your knowledge you are showing others how to do what you do. With your guidance they will do business in their own style. Now you can go forward with a clear understanding on how you may want to advertise the products and any opportunities you may have.

What’s the Catch

What’s the catch? Is it you? Are you a sponge sucking up everything that can help you get started? You have choices to make? Where do you start? Who do you follow? Who do you trust with your time and energy? More important what about the money? These are questions that are in the back of everyone’s mind when you decide this business is for you.

Research is the only way to find what you need. When you do a search on the net you are lost in a sea of advertising. So what are you suppose to do? Think about what problem you want to solve. If you are not manufacturing you are marketing products or supplying information. One thing to remember is that you are on the net and your name becomes your brand. As you are doing your search you want to find value, you want to find it fast and you don’t want to pay too much for that information. The catch is once you get it you share it.

If you are not at the top you have to find ways to get yourself to the top so that everyone one is seeking your help, you have to gain value it is not handed to you. The niche you decide to market in will decide what you are all about. You have to pick a product to market. I have some that may interest you; the value is in the product and the training that the company has to offer. The timing is always right to join a company that gives you the tools you need at little or no cost.

The amount it cost you in dollars is minimal to your pocket, but the catch here is the time it takes to start earning is up to you. Companies that are making millions with you represent them in promoting, selling and recruiting. They spend their money to supply you with all the tools to succeed. There are many ways and many products if you want to form your business with one of these companies. The better you work at representing the company, the more money you will make and the move valuable you gain to your business. You can start without a product if you have built a brand of your own. Your knowledge is the value your business. can you show others how to duplicate, train, become a brand of someone who is working and making money on their own terms. Now are you willing to move forward?

Well you came to a good place to start, I have worked for a year with and researching companies that have training in place or represent top ways you can learn, earn and start your internet business on the right foot.

Companies that help you train and supply you with product information that is current and new and are ready to work with you have to take their companies and your business to the next level. They are not out for just themselves they know the value of the people who help them bring their product to the world and are will to pay you highly for your brand.

Consultants, Reps and Independent Business Owners,  are the titles of the roll you fill and this is a way you can get started with companies that work hand in hand with you to represent their products and help you build your own business. Companies make a point of supporting and practicing being green is important to me and is one way I decide on whether I will do business with them.

If what you put in your body helps you feel better, you will want to tell everyone, so they can feel better to. You can help yourself feel better and share it. You are creating your business and become very successful? These companies all have the best systems in place; they give you the tools you need including a website, support and training. What’s the catch? You do have to put a small amount of money up in the beginning and there is a site fee or product order to full fill. These are very small amounts to pay for great products that support our health and wealth not to mention the training and support.

Building a business on the internet is easy when you have the tools, but most important is that you are going to have to work at it every day just like you would open the doors to a business at the mall, the difference is the world is your mall and you are in control of how well you do and what business choices you make will show everyone who you are. You want it, you have to start now. Who do you know that is doing what you want to do, as marketers you might follow a top person in products and companies in your niche. One way is to search for a product; Successful people are people who are more than willing to show you how to join their team. They will show you how to get started and lead you to success. You will only make money if you take action. Good luck!

The Marketing Truth

Most people you meet do not want to hear you’re in marketing and you’re in business for yourself. Your friends and family probably won’t understand 90% of the population works a job. They make money just fine and are willing to work at a job for forty years, at a company not knowing how their job security will change at the first sign of financial problems. Vacations scheduled for when it is convenient for the company and their sick days limited. While it may take some time and effort to build your business and you will making your own schedule with the funds to do everything you imagined.

A promise of retirement funds keeps them on a string like a puppet not knowing if they will have enough retirement. They see other retiring with funds that don’t match inflation. Medical problems can drain your bank account so fast. A diagnose can reach the most medical coverage that is not included in their retirement package you had picked 40 years before. The great thing about Network Marketing is building residual income, which becomes retirement income. If this is working for you, you are content to do what 90% of the world. Marketing is not for you and that’s okay, this is not a job this is a life style.

Family and friends are not supportive; they don’t understand that you did not fall prey to a scam. You have made a choice to follow a dream to have control over your destiny. Provide a life style for you and your family that is not bound by limits. You thrive on the endless opportunity you have for grow and are willing to share your knowledge with others that have the same goals.

The truth is that 90% of the people you talk to are not going to want what you have to offer and probably never will. Have comfort in knowing that the internet market is like throwing out a net in a galaxy of stars, you want to catch the ones that are going to shine for a long time. Bright enough to shine on everyone they touch, passing knowledge to everyone the meet.

The people who want what you are building are sick of the way things are going, not knowing if they have a job from one day to the next. They are living pay check to pay check and crippled with worry about how they will plan for the future with the way things are today. Then there are those people who look at this as the best opportunity to bring changes for the way they have always seen themselves living and helping others do the same.

You can live with fear everyday and do nothing or you can take that time and put it to work to change your life. This business is not for you if you don’t want to change and grow, if you don’t want to develop skills that will improve your life and the lives of everyone you meet. Not easy yet noting that last a long time is, the marketing truth is that 90% won’t want your business and that’s okay because the people you attract are those that are going to shine like a rare gem or a bright star. Those of us that are in this business take the training and improve our lives and the way they see the world.

Painting a Picture

When I am painting a picture I have pride in it. I want to share it with the world. It sometimes takes time to create a thing of beauty. Look at how long it took to create the art that is treasured all over the world. The work grew in each country and each country has a massive collection of beautiful art that tell a story on how the art grew and developed into a national treasure. Each piece added brought value to the collection.

Look at your business as a work of art, pick a subject and sketch out your ideas. Create the composition using the endless limits of the medium you wish to work with. Now start to build your piece of art work. Each step you take towards the execution of a beautiful piece of art that is treasure by everyone who sees it. The time it takes develop depends on how well you know your craft and teach it to others. You can go from making nothing to hundreds. It becomes the picture of a vision you have for you and your family.

Know there are some artists that hop from project to project not take the time to master the medium that they have chosen to create a style that is recognized as their work or a finished picture.  Your painting will take time just like your business you have to pick your niche and master the techniques you plan on using. Pick the colors you think are going to complement your work, apply the color and watch how your subject starts to appear on the canvas. Attention to every detail so that you can portray a piece of work that is beyond your expectations and a master piece of fine art. The artist who hops from project to project may never be an accomplished artist who can successfully create a piece of fine art.

Art is personal it stirs up feelings that will reach out and grab your heart. This is the way you should feel about the business you are creating. As you master the marketing techniques it may take some time until you are pleased with the finished piece of work. It requires dedication and practice before you are comfortable in your new role. Take the time to learn the products or services that the business you choose to market. When you have a good fit you will create a business that is like no other, attracting people who share your passion and want to develop a painting of their own. You have learned the art of marketing and can teach your skill to others.

Artist study the masters they are attracted to. When they are confidante they know the technique and are compelled to share it and teach it to anyone that is truly a student of the arts. Marketing is an art and I am confident that out of the millions of people who start out wanting to master it only a select few can truly master and teach without questioning how long it was going to take to create something worth showing.
