If you’re involved in network marketing or direct sales and plan on being successful with it, you are going to have to get on the phone and make phone calls. I’ve never seen anyone or had much success myself in network marketing without following up on my leads. In my latest video, I go over how to do this effectively and why objections are really no big deal (how to overcome them easily). I also cover the psychology of the buyers (your prospects) you will be dealing with and how to set appointments (follow-up).

If you’re anything like me and want to use Facebook to market your business, you will need to set up a Facebook Business Page aka Fan Page. Why is this important? Because without it, you will have a difficult time promoting your brand, service, or product. The trick is what to do you do once you set up your page to get more followers?
To get more followers in the beginning you simply send a invite to everyone who is your friend on your personal page. This will get the ball rolling and should get you anywhere from 50 to 200 followers quickly. You also may want to post a status update on your personal page about your new fan page and/or group. You could also ask some of your friends with big followings or influencers if they would be willing to put a shout out for you. Once you do this — you are on your way.
Next you want to be sure that you post regularly. Always try and come up with good content and post once per day if you can. This will get people coming to your page often and should get you new followers weekly. I don’t think its necessary to post more than one time per day — less is bet on Facebook and consistency is very important.
If you plan on doing advertising to promote your page this is another great way to get followers. Keep in mind that you don’t want to pay too much per like, so test some different campaigns to see which works the best and try to keep each like to less than 50 cents each (preferably around 15 to 20 cents).
If you’re on Instagram make sure to connect your Instagram page to your Facebook Fan Page. This will also allow you to post pictures and videos from Instragram page directly to your Facebook Page and this should help you get more likes as well.
You may also try and follow some influencers in your niche from your Facebook Fan Page not your personal page and like and comment on interesting posts, this will also get you some likes.
If you really want to get a ton of followers fast you can always pay a social media expert to get you lots of likes. Typically you can pay anywhere from $50 to $1000 to jumpstart your page. The only downside with this strategy is it may be a lot of followers who really have no interest in your niche. I have used this strategy above with a few who just wanted a large following fast. If you do the latter strategy do not stop there always be promoting.
Finally, if you blog or do videos, make sure to always post those to your page as well. This is a great way to keep it interesting and build value with your audience on a regular basis.
If all the above seems too overwhelming or you simply just need a some direction you can always reach out to a social media expert to help implement some of these strategies for you and your business. Myself and my team are always available should you need any help email me at email@example.com
I recently came across an article in a magazine that my company provides on the topic of 5 elements you must have to be successful in network marketing. In this article that was written by John Haremza author of “Right or Almost Right” he goes on to share that the 5 elements you must have are the following:
The Company (Leadership, debt-free, profitable).
The Product (is it easy to share and something you or others would benefit from).
The compensation plan (does it pay out well as much as 50% or better)
The timing (is the company growing, dying, or staying the same – you want to be with a company that is growing and hopefully beyond the $2 Million a month mark).
The Training (Does the company provide free ongoing training calls, and events to plug into.)
Those are the 5 things you are looking for in your opportunity or any opportunity if you want to be involved in network marketing (direct selling, mlm, home based business).
To learn more watch my video below.
5 Things You Need – How To Be Successful in your Network Marketing Business
If your company is missing 2 or 3 of the 5 above elements no matter how good you are – you are going to struggle in building your business.

I used to do a 100% of my recruiting for network marketing on Facebook and MySpace before it imploded. I realized recently that I have really gotten away from it for a few years now. It was so powerful a few years ago it wasn’t uncommon for me to sponsor 15 to 20 people per month by just using social media mainly Facebook. So today, I want to share with you some tips on how to get people interested in your business via Facebook. I know these tips still work as I tested them last month and sponsored a few people using some of these tactics.
Post something about your business without a link to your business, but maybe a blog or just something to spark some curiosity. I find that this usually works better than just posting a link to my company website.
Top Tips for How To Recruit with Facebook
Get in the habit of connecting or re-connecting with 3 to 5 people per day and watch your business grow. Who wants to join me in reaching out to 5 people per day on Facebook? And this isn’t about spamming, but actually sending out messages to people you have as friends or new friends. Just simply introduce yourself and ask your new or old friend about what they are up to. Again, you are not even mentioning your business unless they ask you about it. Then and only then would you even mention it. Just send a message with the following, “Hey John, it’s been awhile since we last connected, what are you up to these days?”
Start a Facebook Group for network marketers. I started a group called “Become an MLM Superstar”. I’ve definitely sponsored at least a handful of people from this group and it’s a great way to connect with others who may not join your business, but definitely are like-minded for the most part.
Just be consistent in your activity. If you’ve only got a few minutes per day, maybe you set a goal to just reach out to 2 or 3 new people per day. My goal is to go for reaching out to 5 new people per day with no ulterior motive except that I am looking for people who have similar interests (networking, business owners, music, entrepreneurs).
If you need a little more help with using the tactics above that I mentioned, please watch the video below to see how this could work for you.
I recently came across an online tool that is supposedly helping people get more leads and make money to support their home based business. Let’s face it one of the most challenging things we all face when doing network marketing is having plenty of people to talk to. In a perfect world, we would post a blog or a video and our phones would ring off the hook with prospects begging to join our business and all we would have to say is, “Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover.”
Unfortunately, if you’ve been involved in network marketing for any length of time you know it can take a little more convincing than that. I’ve personally purchased leads, bought google ads, solo ads, called friends and family, and still regularly buy Facebook Ads and am always on the lookout for new tools that can help me and my team members attract more people to my business.
With that being said, I recently found something that will help you build a list of people you can email to in just a few days for next to nothing. In fact, you can sign up for free to test drive it and even use the service without ever spending a dime if you choose. If you are serious about building a network marketing business and want to get more leads and build a large list fast, I recommend you at least take a peak at Global Moneyline. I took it for a test drive 3 days ago after learning that some of my team members were getting sign-ups into our network marketing business from it. In just 36 hours I’ve already got over 2000 people in my network that I can email or advertise my opportunity to. It could take weeks or even months to build a list of 2000 or more. I will add that nothing beats having your own email list, but while you are building your list – this could be a great alternative to building your list.
To learn more about Moneyline and how it can help you get more leads and distributors for your network marketing business click here. I think you’ll be happy with at least taking a look at it.
I recently made a goal this year to sit down in apply myself to reading 10 pages per day. I figured if I could get in the habit of reading just 10 pages per day (20 to 30 minutes or less), by the end of the year I would have read over 3500 pages of something. Most books are around 200 pages in length, so by doing this, I could read at least 10 new books this year.
In the past up until now I have read some pretty amazing books and for any of you that just aren’t satisfied or would like to continue to grow in this journey called life; I want to share with you just 10 books that I have had a profound affect on my life. So here it goes, my top 10 list of books that have changed the way I look at things and had a deep impact on my life.
The Bible – The inspired word of god is made up some amazing stories of men that struggled in life and were able to overcome great obstacles with God on their side. Whether you believe in the stories or not, The Bible has definitely had an impact in my life.
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki– When I had first picked up this book about 10 years ago I had all but given up on the idea of being my own boss. I was quite content just making a living working for someone else and really had never examined some of the ideas that were laid out in this book. I highly recommend you read it if you have any interest in investing or becoming an entrepreneur.
As a Man Thinketh by James Allen – This book was originally published in 1903, but holds some great ideas to how our minds and thoughts can affect our futures. This book really made me aware of how I thought about things and looked at the world.
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne – I had never heard of The Law of Attraction before reading this book. In fact, I was under the assumption that most everything happened for a reason and where I ended up was based more on my own destiny. This book helped me to realize that I could change my future by changing my thoughts. A longer more in depth version of As a Man Thinketh.
The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris – This book is awesome as most of us have been programmed that being busy equates to being productive. Most tasks can be done in only a few minutes per day and most of the time we spend is wasted when it comes to work and business. This book will help you become way more productive and recognize when you are wasting your time and get you off of auto pilot.
How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie – This book will help you to understand people and how building a network is so important to achieving success. This will also give you tools to become a better listener, a better person, and help you gain friends much faster. It will also help you persuade others to your way of thinking or influencing others with your ideas. A must-read for anyone in sales, network marketing, or business.
Harmonic Wealth by James Arthur Ray – I loved this book. Unlike so many books on business or success, it talked about the 5 Pillars of Success – Financial, relational, mental, physical, and spiritual. It basically said you aren’t truly successful until you find success in all five areas.
The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer – Wayne is no longer with us in the physical reality, but he had some great ideas and certainly had made an impact on my life through his books and lectures. This book really stands out as my most favorite of all The Wayne Dyer Books I have read and would say it’s a must read for everyone regardless of their pursuits. This book will help you become a co-creator with the universe and understand that our intentions will ultimately create our reality.
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson – This book is based on the idea that all great things whether it be money saved, success on the football field, or a successful business owner all have one thing in common – an accumulation of good daily habits that compound over a period of time. The Slight Edge shows you how to get powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you and will help you recognize and become aware of your activities for the better. This book is a must read and I am so glad that I read it.
The Four Year Career: How to Make Your Dreams of Fun and Financial Freedom Come True Or Not by Richard Bliss Brook – This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in building a career or a 2nd income in network marketing. This will help you understand the business and why it works, how it works, and how so many have found above average income in this industry. I was honored to have given a testimonial on this book in the past.
Well, there are my 10 favorite books of all time and I hope that you find a few or add a few to your list to read in the near future. You will not be sorry.
I recently came across a health product Prevail Max by Valentus that literally blew my mind. Not because I actually tried it myself, but because of what I saw visually from a video on YouTube (see below).

Here is more information on the product and why you might want to consider Prevail Max for yourself if you have any health issues or you like myself you simply want better health.

Prevail Max Facts (Frequently Asked Questions).
Does this product assist with detoxification? If so, should I stop taking my other products that I am taking to help with bowel movements/constipation?
Detoxification: The increased bio-electric charge that your body will carry while using Prevail Max will assist in the natural peristaltic action of the colon and further assist in a natural and more comfortable bowl movement. You will be giving your body what it was lacking to perform its most basic function. Continue with your previous protocol and then abstain from said protocol after combining the Prevail Max and your bowl regulation products for three days. Continue with Prevail Max there after to further assist this and many other relevant conditions.
Will this increase my athletic performance? If so, has this been approved by the World anti-doping agency? I don’t want to jeopardize my athletic competitions, should I get randomly selected to provide a urine sample!
The Prevail Max formula has been shown to GREATLY enhance athletic performance in a variety of ways. It has yet to be certified by WADA but has been previously cleared by the NSF for Sport in the United States which monitors and controls the regulation for all banned substances in the U.S. for professional athletes.
Is this safe for children? If not, what age or body weight is recommended (at minimum) for safety?
It has become a customary standard in North America via the FDA to suggest that children under the age of 12 years old consult a qualified health care practitioner before using any supplemental product. This being said, we suggest that you consult said practitioner prior to use.
Is this product FDA approved?
PrevailMax is considered a natural supplement and is recognized by the FDA as such.
Are there any medical papers on this product that I can access to show my doctor?
There has been years of supportive and collaborating studies done on the Prevail Max technology that had been conducted by Dr. Mueller and his R&D company. Although, to date there has not been third party studies done that have been published.
Do I take this product with food? Or, can I take this product in the early morning when I take my other medicines? Do I take this product in between meals, when I drink my other Valentus beverages, or only during breakfast, lunch and supper? (Product says to take 3 times per day, when?)
PrevailMax can be taken at any time day or night without complication because it is administered intra-orally and absorbs into the blood stream quickly thus bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and avoiding the time consuming and often times interference of normal digestion.

A few years ago I began to boost my posts on my Facebook Business Page. Not because I really wanted to, but because I figured that with around 10,000 followers at the time it was apparent to me that only 2 to 5% of my followers were going to see my posts.
When I first got on Facebook back in 2008 it was not uncommon for most of your followers to see your posts, but nowadays that just doesn’t happen. I think it is even worse with the Facebook Business Pages vs. The Facebook Personal Pages.
So which posts do you post and so forth? I would recommend anything that is business (marketing related) be boosted straight away. You can do this for as little as $15 per week ($2 per day per post). If you’d like to do a boost on a non-business related post where there is no call to action than only boost those posts that are getting a big response rate (Facebook will actually send you a notification). Keep in mind that by boosting your posts you are doing 2 things — hopefully getting someone to opt-in to your email list if you are doing a marketing post (always post links to take people to a squeeze or capture page). And if you are boosting posts that don’t have a call to action (non-business) you are doing this to either get more engagement or more followers.
Since this can be a bit costly to build up your online presence over time you need to know pretty much what it is you are after before you boost your post. You also need to set aside a budget. You can start with as little as $60 per month. I would recommend test marketing in the beginning and stay on top of it every few days, so you don’t spend too much too soon.
I personally always target my posts to audiences whom I feel would be most interested in the post. For example, if the post is about cold calling on the phone, I may reach out to salespeople, realtors, or network marketing professionals. If the call to action is for weight loss products, I would probably reach out to people who have expressed interest in weight loss products. Or if I’m promoting plumbing services, I’m only going to reach out to people in my local area. Once you know your market, you can have lots of fun with boosting posts and get a lot more traction than you can with a non-boosted post. It’s the difference of having only 100 people see your post or up to a 100,000.
If you’re looking to get more followers never boost your post to your existing audience, always target new people outside your existing network. If you are looking to get more sales or expand your email list than it’s perfectly ok to just simply boost your post to your existing followers.
When you click on the boost your post button it will allow you to pick geographical areas (globally), interests, and/or if you just want to post to your current followers.
Hope this helps, you get more sales more followers and grow your brand on Facebook.

Around 8 years ago I lost pretty much everything after going through a divorce. I have spent the last 8 years not building my bank account so much, but building my mindset. I would take a strong mindset over anything on the planet. Your mindset if strong, can heal disease, always create money, get you out of debt, and take you to places beyond your wildest dreams. I’ve even used it to attract love and even cars. I have more faith today than ever and see the world where possibility is limitless for those who can believe and it all starts in the mind.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” Henry Ford
Here are 10 tips that I have used to save me from bankruptcy and create lots of money and much more.
Read books that inspire you every day (get in the habit of reading 10 pages per day)
Subconscious reprogramming (music and guided meditation), you can find on YouTube or the internet (most is free). Make sure to get a good pair of headphones.
Learn to be present (this will help you to control your thoughts and become a master at slowing down time).
Meditate and pray daily (I try to spend a few minutes a day praying and up to 30 minutes per day in meditation).
BE CAREFUL WHO YOU SPEND TIME WITH (Don’t cut off all friends, as you can be a great inspiration, but spend most of your time with those that have more of what you want).
Always be open to new opportunities for either business or investment. (Stay open because your faith is strong.)
BE REALLY CLEAR (Be very clear on what it is you want until you are clear don’t get into action).
Live life to the fullest (Don’t every deny yourself of life’s many pleasures, in other words, if you want to drive a luxury car or go on an exotic vacation – go get it. Know that you deserve it and go after it like you already own it before you do.)
Work harder on yourself than your business, than your job, or anything else. (Always be working on becoming the best version of you.)
Find a mentor or mentors. I’ve had life coaches, mentors, and connect with people often who I look up to. These mentors can all be of great help in helping you achieve your goals. One of my life coaches helped me increase my income dramatically in less than a year.
So there you have it. 10 tips I have used to help me get back on my feet, avoid bankruptcy and pretty much live the life that I desire most of the time. It’s not so much about how much money you have in your bank account, but how you feel about yourself. I personally know millionaires who are financially insecure. Security isn’t in your net worth but in your self-worth.
