If you are like me and have a blog for your business and/or like blogging from time to time or on a regular basis it’s important that you learn a few things about not only promoting your blog but also making sure that your blog gets good SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and is seen by others. Here are 6 ways that you can improve your blog to make sure it gets seen.
6 Ways To Improve Your Blog So You Get Seen.
Install a good SEO Plug-in. There are many to choose from but my favorite is Yoast. It’s very simple to use and has many great features, but the most important one is keywords.
Highlight Keywords and tag them. Make sure to “Bold” any keywords on your blog at least one time and tag them.
Do some keyword research. There is a great tool by Google called Keyword Planner which will show you which keywords are most popular based on the relevance of your blog post. Don’t just go for popular, but make sure your keywords are relevant to your post. I’d recommend setting up an Adwords Account if you don’t already have one even if it is just a free one If so that you can use this great tool. If you need help with using it, I recently made a video on it and you can view it by clicking here.
Choose one keyword, then include it in your post permalink, title, and first sentence. This is very important for SEO. Just look at the permalink of your post and make sure the title is included. For this post, I pretty much made my post about blogging, the blog would be in my title, first sentence, and permalink. It really needs to be in all 3 for your blog to get indexed well. Make sure that your keyword is included in the body of your post a few times as well. I usually just “bold” the first time I use the keyword, but it probably doesn’t hurt to “bold” it throughout. Keywords are the juice of your blog and need to be included in the “tags’ section if you use WordPress or in a Keyword Tool if you have The Yoast Premium Plug-in. This way, you potentially increase their importance as far as search engines are concerned
Be sure to offer ways for people to subscribe to your blog. We give away a free E-book, have a few pop-ups on different pages, and a contact us page.
Lastly, make sure that everytime you blog that you always share your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Linkedin or any social media site that would be relevant to your blog.

I heard this guy on the radio the other day say that you need at least 1 Million Dollars to retire comfortably. Now that is pretty vague considering that if you live in Southern California in a 10,000 Square foot Home and your monthly bills require at least $20K per month to keep your head above water. Or what if you live in Des Moines, Iowa and your home is paid for and you don’t have any credit card debt and you’re living on social security and get medical assistance from Medicare.
The above isn’t too far off from my brother and my father. I think I am somewhere in the middle, but my point is that financial freedom is different for everyone. If you want to know if you’re financially free – simply calculate how long you could go without working and still be able to pay all your bills? For most, many are still living paycheck to paycheck and their only hope to retire is to collect social security.
If you’d like to be able to retire one day it will be based on 2 things – your monthly outgo per month – bills (homes, cars, boats, and health insurance) and how much you make (income). It’s pretty simple if your bills are only $1000 per month, it will much easier for you to retire or take much less than someone whose bills are $20,000 per month. For someone who’s bills are only $1000 per month they could live without working for 10 years if they had only $120,000 tucked away. For someone whose monthly bills are $20,000 per month, they would need to have 2,400,000 tucked away to stop working for 10 years.
As you can see retirement will be very different for everyone. For some, it may be just working part-time and living on some savings and for others, it may not even be an option and for a few lucky ones, they will be able to do it with their life savings.
Personally having worked for almost 30 years of my life and raising kids, I know how hard it can be to save money, so I would rather create income streams via investing in stocks, cryptocurrency, digital marketing, and selling Health & Wellness Products online. This doesn’t take a lot of years and can create nice steady income quickly if you know what you are doing. In fact, you can create all the above in only 12 to 18 months if you are smart about it.
Creating wealth beyond being an employee has been one of the most satisfying things for me personaly and fortunately, I have only worked as an employee for a few of the past 10 years. I will say that it hasn’t been easy, but it has been very fulfilling at times. Imagine being able to work a few hours per day and go do the things you love? Take a vacation when you feel like it, not because you get a week or 2 weeks a year of paid time off, drive a luxury vehicle and have it paid for because your investments will pay for it. The above is all possible if you think you can, are resourceful, and have a mentor to show you the way. And the best part is, you become your own boss and create a lifestyle that most only dream about in a very short period of time. It doesn’t mean you don’t work, but trust me it’s always more fulfilling working on your own schedule than someone else’s. In fact, you may like it so much that you may never feel like you need to retire. Being a home-based entrepreneur is like being permanently semi-retired.

It used to be back in the old days if you got involved in network marketing you would need to make a list of 20 or 30 people you knew and then approach them about your new product or service. This will usually only work if you have a good sphere of influence and a network of people who have open mindsets and a disposable income to spend. Once you go through your network you are left with nothing to do or the dreadful thought of having to go out and talk to strangers. Unless you’re a unique individual the idea of cold calling in person or on the phone is pretty disheartening for most of us. My thought process is if I do something and it’s super painful – I’m probably not going to attract the right people to my business. So with that being said here are 3 more online network Marketing Tips You Can Use To Help Your Business. This is a follow up to my last blog 5 Cost Effective Ways To Market Your Business Online.
3 Online Marketing Tips To Help Your Network Marketing Business
In my last blog post I shared 5 things that you can do online to market your business. In todays post, I wanted to share 3 other things you can do. If you have not yet read my other post you can click on it here.
Facebook Groups– Facebook now has over 2 Billion Active Users worldwide and I find this to be the best place out of all The Social Media Networks to get partners for your business. Create a Facebook Group that is relevant to your business. I have created several and one of the most popular ones is Become an MLM Superstar. I think this group has over 3,000 members (mostly people interested in networking who are outside of my personal network). It’s my group so I get to control what gets posted and I can post anytime I want to this group. I usually will use this as a way to advertising my blog vs.spamming links. So if you write an article or your company comes out with a new product this is a great way to share it. If you’d like to join my group on Facebook Click here. It’s also a good idea to join other groups that are relevent to your products/services/industry and share to those groups as well. This is a great way to get your message out there and will help you get more good quality leads.
Boosting Posts – Now you’re going to need a Facebook Business Page to do this, but this can be a very affordable way to get your message out there. It’s very easy to set up and you don’t have to have alot of page likes to use it. You simply post something relevant to your business and boost your post. You can boost it for 7 days for anywhere from $5 to $25 (the choice is yours). I recommend starting with a small budget and look at it every few days to see how you are doing. If you want likes and comments on your post that would be a brand awareness campaign. If you want leads then you need to go with a website link (landing page) and get people to go there.
Solo Ads – are a popular way to reach out to your targeted audience via email without actually having a list of your own. Think of it like renting a list. Someone like myself with a large following of several thousand people can be targeted to for a fee of $30 to $100. Most of these prospects are interested in what you have to offer and you will generally get anywhere from 15 to 25 fresh leads from just one solo ad campaign. The only requirement here is that you hire a reputable marketer to send your email out and you will need to be a decent copywriter or hire one. One of the best sites I have found for solo ads is Udimi. You can get started by clicking here.
I hope all the above helps you grow your network marketing business. Keep in mind that you don’t need to master all the above to have success online, just a few marketing tactics will get you a steady flow of leads without breaking the bank without having to go out and cold call on people.
Let’s be frank! Online marketing is not easy. You’re spending money, time, and energy hoping that something sticks and that you hopefully become the next big thing or you get some ROI on your investment. What works for my business isn’t going to necessarily work for another. You have to be creative, diligent, and always be watching to see what is working and what isn’t.
Not only is there a huge learning curve for beginners, but you have plenty of marketers coming after your wallet claiming to be experts in online marketing. If you decide to go at it alone, it will take you weeks, months, or even years to figure it out. If you hire someone you pray you made the right decision and don’t flush money down the toilet.
Personally, I have been marketing online since 2008 and have worked with many individuals and businesses on their online marketing. I wanted to take some time to share with you 5 of my favorite Cost Effective things you can do to market your business online that won’t waste your time or your hard-earned dollars if done correctly.
5 Cost-Effective Ways To Market Your Business Online
#1. Blogging — Even though blogging can takes months or even years to build up any sort of decent following, writing about things that are relevant to your audience can always increase traffic and in return get you more followers and customers for your business. If you choose to blog there are 2 things you will want to always remember — consistency leads to results and you will need to have patience — lots and lots of it. I personally, write 2 blogs for my business weekly (try to anyway). One is tailored for the solo entrepreneur and home based business professional and the other is tailored towards the small & mid-sized business owner. At times if it makes sense — I may share an article like this that could be relevant to both blogs. I have to admit it is harder than it sounds as you always have to scramble for good content and you need to be somewhat of a decent writer. If writing isn’t your thing you can always hire a freelancer to do it for you, or use an employee.
#2. Video Marketing— If you haven’t already consider setting up a YouTube Channel. This will be one of the best ways to reach out to people in your network and beyond. I really think that SEO (Search Engine Optimization) from Video is 10 times what it is for a website at least in speed. I can create a video and get it optimized in days vs. weeks, months, or years with a website. It’s hands down one of the cheapest and most effective ways to market your business. I have seen my clients including myself add hundreds and even thousands of dollars to their bottom line by simply creating a few videos and getting them to come up on the top of YouTube. I will add that this is a very competitive space, but if you learn how to optimize your videos or have a professional optimize them for you-you will be very pleased with the results. I have had a few videos come up #1 out of hundreds for search terms and this can be very beneficial for your business if done correctly.
#3. Email Marketing — Email marketing may not be what it once was years ago with all of the spam filters these days, but I still think that it is an effective way for you to stay in front of your customers and prospects on a regular basis. Like with blogging you will want to be consistent at least once a month, weekly, or bi-weekly. You will definitely want to sign up for one of the many email services to broadcast your emails (MailChimp, constant contact, Aweber, Icontact, etc.) My personal favorite is Icontact.com, but any one should work and they all cost about the same. Don’t be over the top with your marketing as many people will be turned off if you constantly send out emails. The key to email marketing is good copywriting skills (sales copy) and knowing the best times to send out your emails. If you’re promoting your business, probably not best to send out your emails on a Sunday. It’s also important to always be growing your email list. You want your subscriber base to grow so you have more people (hopefully targeted) to reach out to. One of the ways that we grow our email list is by giving away a free e-book on both of our websites.
#4. Social Media Marketing — If you’re running a business and you are not on at least Facebook (over 3 billion active users are now on Facebook worldwide), you are seriously jeopardizing the future of your business in my opinion. Those businesses that are active in social media will thrive in the future. I feel like a few years ago no one knew where it was really going, but today it shapes our lives from the news, to whats happening now, to sharing photographs of our latest vacation. It’s a phenomenon that is not going away anytime soon. Even if you don’t like it (and many people don’t) get involved if nothing less for your business. Your life depends on oxygen and water to survive. Your business nowadays depends on Social Media. Find one or two social media sites that you feel will best represent your business and be consistent and simply put yourself and your business out there. NO one ever made it big by playing it safe. This is your opportunity to share your business with the entire world and really connect with others in a much more personal way. Think of it like a giant party and you have an opportunity to not only promote your business but to make new friends.
#5 Content Marketing — similar to this site or even linkedin.com which now allows you the ability to publish articles. The great thing about using sites like medium or Linkedin to publish articles is it allows you the ability to share content beyond your social media networks, email, or blogs. A lot of times I will write my blog first on medium than copy and paste it to my blog. Make sure if you do copy & paste that you reference the article on your blog. I have found in the past that some of my best-written articles that got the most attention were not from my blogs, but from my articles that I wrote on these other sites away from my blog.
Well, there are 5 cost-effective ways to market online. I hope this helps you with your online marketing whether you are a newbie or a seasoned pro. Marketing is pretty much everything that happens prior to an exchange of money. If done well, it can make you a fortune, if done poorly it can waste a lot of time & money and in some cases even cost you your business. If you feel like you would rather stay away from marketing and focus more on the things you are good at — always feel free to reach out to myself or another online expert for help on making your business stand out in a noisy overpopulated online world.
If you are like me and would like to make extra income or have multiple streams of income. I don’t think there has been a better time than today to create that for you and your family.
You don’t need a bunch of money to get started and in many cases can begin earning an extra $500, $1000, or even $5000 or more from home each and every month. Below I have listed some of the best ways I have found to make money from home.
Affiliate Marketing – affiliate marketing is taking a product that someone else has created either a how to book, a course, or a product and simply either promoting it online. When you make a sale you make a commission usually 15 to 40%. The best thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t have to invest thousands or lots of hours in time creating the product. You simply find a product you believe in and go out and market it to your email list, social media channels, solo ads, blog, or search engines like Google & Bing and when you make a sale you earn a commission. The downside is if you’re tigh on funds to pay for advertising you will need to have a big email list, a decent social media following, and an established blog to really make money doing this. I have honestly had the best luck doing this with Twitter and Solo Ads. The best place to start with affiliate marketing is Clickbank.com they have thousands of products to choose from and they do offer a bit of training on how to do it.
Network Marketing – You can join a company as a distributor for a small fee of anywhere from $20 to $1000. Network marketing is pretty simple you just sign up with a company like Avon, Amway, or Nuskin and pay a small fee order some products and begin marketing your business to others. When someone orders products you earn commission anyone that you refer you should earn a percentage off of their sales as well. The beauty with network marketing versus affiliate marketing is once you build a network you continue to earn commissions without having to go out and sell all the time. In other words, it should build up over time. There are many great companies out there to choose from, but try and stay away from the companies that require a big upfront fee unless they have been around for at least 2 years or more. Most start-up network marketing companies fail within a few years and you basically have a 90% chance if you join a new company that they won’t be around for very long. You really have to think in terms of a 12 to 18 month period to really make big money in network marketing, so you really want to choose a company that will be around when you build a pretty big network. You also want to find a company where you would buy their products whether or not a business opportunity was attached to it. I’ve met very few people in my lifetime that can sell or market a product they don’t believe in. If you need a great company or product to market – here is one that I recommend http://healthierwealthier.info .
Amazon & eBay Seller
If you don’t want to learn marketing and have a few dollars to invest you might want to look at Amazon or Ebay. With eBay you can start even if you don’t have much money to invest by selling older items in your home (usually recommended starting out). eBay is much easier to get started in as you don’t have the fierce competition as you do with Amazon as its more of an online flea market where as with Amazon, you’ll have to get really good at packing or finding some superb drop-shippers as I think the level of service on Amazon is usually a bit higher or expected to be. Plus it will be tougher to get a good rating on Amazon early on and you will definitely want to have a professional account at all times to be taken seriously on Amazon which will cost you $40 per month + 15% per item, so you’ll want to really get good at estimating your costs after all expenses to see if an item is even worth selling. Becoming profitable on Amazon and Ebay like anything else does take time and knowing what to buy and sell. I’ve personally had some big losses in the past and even invested over $10,000 with a single company to sell on Amazon. If you decide this is the way you want to go, I highly recommend you read some books and articles or take a course so you don’t lose money and make a profit everytime you sell something. You will also need to get really good at customer service (answering emails, phone calls, etc). Finally, if you’re willing to learn a bit, this can be one of the easiest ways to make money online. I’ve personally in my spare time since selling on Ebay since 1999 and Amazon since 2012 made thousands of extra dollars very part-time this way.
If you have a fairly new or reliable vehicle and don’t mind putting a few miles on it than ridesharing may be for you. The nice thing about ridesharing is you don’t need any special skills that may be required to be successful in network marketing and affiliate marketing. You just need to enjoy people and know how to drive a vehicle. You definitely won’t get rich doing this, but you can certainly make a few extra bucks. Many people do it very part-time and some do it full-time. If you don’t have a newer vehicle Uber will allow you to rent a car through their app or lease one with no mile restrictions. I would only consider the latter if I were going to drive more than 25 hours a week. If you’re just going to do a few hours per week than using your own vehicle will make a lot more sense and be way less expensive as you won’t have the additional rental fees (which can run a few hundred per week). There are also sites like hyrecar.com where you can rent a vehicle for pretty cheap if you like. To get started with Uber or lyft the 2 best rideshare companies and begin earning dollars weekly just click on either of the 2 links below. The best part about ridesharing is once you sign up and get your vehicle inspected you start earning money immediately and there are no up-front fees or additional expenses beyond gas, insurance, and regular maintenance which if you own a vehicle you already have anyway.
If you have any special skills like accounting, social media management, graphic design, photography or you know how to play and read music. You can apply any one of those skills to be of service to others or to teach. Simply figure out what your good at and create a blog a few social media sites and begin advertising your service on sites like Craigslist or if you have a few bucks saved up you can use paid ads on Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Bing. Its pretty tough to start a business on word of mouth, so once you figure out what business you want to make money in, you’ll need to get the word out that you have a business and get others to buy into it through marketing.
With the exception of Uber and Amazon & eBay, you will need to get good at marketing to have any reasonable success. Keep in mind marketing is simply what happens before a sale is made. Marketing can include telemarketing (phone), cold calling (in person or on phone), advertising (craigslist, google, etc), blogging, creating brand awareness by using Social Media. You can also use older more tested sources (radio, TV, or Print).
I have been around the network marketing industry since I joined my first company Pre-Paid Legal back in 2000. I have seen some great products and services being sold by word of mouth marketing over the years. Who can argue that Amway, Avon, Legal Shield (formerly pre-paid legal), or Shaklee are not great companies with great products or services? I’ve personally used products over the years where I never even became a distributor and was just a customer Juice Plus, Send Out Cards, and Nerium to name a few.
What I love about network marketing is it allows people to purchase products that in most cases are better quality than what they would get on the shelf in a store. Mainly because of the distribution model being word of mouth the companies typically pay out around 50% of all income to their distributors instead of going retail and paying out nearly 80% to advertising agencies, wholesalers, resellers, and so on. It also allows individuals with no experience or limited experience in business to create additional income with a very small investment. Unfortunately, certain companies out there don’t have that great of a product. I still remember a few years ago sitting on a phone call with a company owner who was bragging how he was getting his product from China for $6 and selling it through his network marketing business for $60. This is where I have a love hate relationship with the business as most businesses are built on a product or service first and a distribution channel later. In many cases in network marketing, the business is built on a compensation plan first than a product secondly. In fact, I’m shocked that after what happened with Veema (being shut down by the FTC), and all of Herbalife’s problems in recent years that anyone would even consider starting a network marketing company without focusing on a product or service first.
You see, for a company to be successful in the long-term it cannot be built entirely by just recruiting people who are going to join the business and pay out commissions. It must have products and services available to the general public that people would buy without a business opportunity attached to it. And this is where it gets tricky. Because as a network marketing begins the word of mouth is usually spread by distributors recruiting distributors. After awhile if the products and services are good and priced right many distributors who originally got into the business to make money will just become loyal customers and the word of mouth will travel and over time there will be many customers and that is where you want to be. In fact, if you just build a business model on recruiting distributors and have no customer base your business and company is doomed over a period of time – it will eventually fall apart like a deck of cards. That company I talked about earlier where the owner was buying his product in China for $6 and reselling it to his distributors for $60 is no longer in business today.
Why are price and quality important? If you put a product in the marketplace that isn’t priced accordingly then – it better make a person fly, because if people see they can buy a similar product that’s just as good elsewhere for a lesser price – you’re going to lose a customer. It’s as simple as that. And I still believe today that most products I come across in network marketing are of good quality, but many still don’t understand that consumers won’t pay double or triple for a product they can buy elsewhere.
So if you decide you want to join a network marketing company before you begin marketing it do some homework on the products to see if they are priced accordingly, good quality, and something you would personally buy whether or not you joined the business to make money or not. Keep in mind in network marketing you are building a business for you and your family that could potentially pay you residual income for years to come. Don’t make the same mistake I have in the past by joining a company just because you can make money quickly – that usually doesn’t last. Ask yourself, if this company will still be around in 3 to 5 years? Is this a business that I could put my mom or relatives in and sleep straight at night. If the answer to the above is YES, than you may have found your company.
If you are looking for a company that has better products, is priced right and can potentially add an additional $100, $500, or even $5000 or more per month to your families budget than definitely click on the link below.

What is the best MLM Marketing System? Since I entered The MLM/Network Marketing world online back in 2008, I have always been in search of good marketing systems. I’ve used company provided systems (that usually cost a fee). I’ve used free marketing systems by 3rd parties, and costly systems by 3rd parties. What I have found is that most have a few negatives – the free ones don’t have a good follow up program that allows you to make phone calls and schedule follow-ups with your prospects. The company provided systems are tailored only towards your company and allow for very little customization – no tweaking emails, videos, etc. Most company provided systems don’t allow you to make money promoting them to your downline. The company provided ones will be good for your friends or family members, but won’t allow you to generate leads on your own.
“The Fortune is in the follow-up” Every Successful Network Marketer Ever
Here is what you want to look for when using and an outside marketing system.
Capture Pages (non-company specific is best I think for curiosity sake)
Pre-Made and customizable pages (availability is good)
Customer relation manager (must be able to follow up, make notes, and schedule follow up calls.
An email autoresponder. (You need to have a way to follow up with people when you can’t reach them by phone. Great for list building too.)
An email broadcast feature (ability to send email broadcast to all your prospects at one time)
A way to earn commission (affiliate commissions). Get your system for free or get paid to share with others. Many may not join your company as they may already be with a company, but a 3rd party tool can always make a difference.
Which system have I found with all of the following above? The company is called Prosperity Central and they have been around for about the last 6 or 7 years. Everything is already set up for the novice and customizable for the pro. If you have lots of leads to follow up with they have a software called Phoneburner that is built into their program which allows you to make calls up to 4 times faster than dialing manually. I find it very helpful when I do big campaigns that generate a 100 or more leads a day and I need to follow up by phone. In terms of price? You can get started for as little as a $1 per day with all the bells and whistles ($25 per month) and if you refer 3 its free. I’ve had my system for over 6 years and it’s never costed me a penny as my affiliates pay my monthly membership fee. If you’d like to test drive it for free you can do that by clicking here. I’ve also put together a short video below that shows you how it works.
Can you build a successful Network Marketing Business Online?
The answer is that you definitely can, but the problem is that so many of the network marketing programs out there today teach that you can do it without having to do anything, but post ads, send out emails, pay for advertising or post on Facebook. If that is all that you want to do then network marketing would not necessarily be the vehicle that you would want to pursue. If all you want to do is place ads and never have to pick up the phone then what you really should be looking at is affiliate marketing. If that is the case, I’ve just saved you months or perhaps even years of your time. If you’re open to network marketing than keep reading and I will tell you what I have learned from sponsoring thousands, making thousands, and spending thousands of dollars online since 2008.
“Make 10,000 in 30 days doing nothing”
“We’ve found the secret”
“Just sit back and watch the spillover, while I do all the work”
“All you have to do is spend $200 and our team is growing so fast, you can get rich from our momentum”
The above is all BS for the most part and I see it every day online. Believe me, I have tried every program under the sun over the last 10 years and not one network marketing program has paid me any money when I haven’t sponsored people (customers or business opportunity seekers). If you want to get successful online you must get out there and market yourself consistently, pick up the phone, and get to work. Yes, just like anything else it will take work for you to succeed, but in the end, it’s usually worth it. I’ve been able to collect multiple checks from multiple companies for years, drive luxury vehicles, and go on luxury vacations. Below, I am going to share some tips on how you can become an online pro and make money with network marketing in any program good or bad.
Tips to Succeed Online in Network Marketing
Be YOU and Brand YOU. Yes, learn about branding YOU. This doesn’t mean you don’t do the basics of marketing your business and become a network marketing secret agent where you don’t mention your company (true BS). You simply work on marketing YOU, while doing all the network marketing basics as it can take months or even years to become an authority in your niche and have people chasing you to join your business or for coaching.
Be consistent. Consistently set aside an hour or two per day to market your business. Post ads on Craigslist, Backpage, Google Adwords, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. Be out there just like you would be if you were running a business. If people don’t know what you’re up to, then you won’t have anyone to market to.
What to do with leads. When you do get leads (I had over 150 in the past 3 days), set aside time to follow up on the phone with people. If you’re already like me and generating lots of leads you need to get Phoneburner (automated dialer that allows you to call everyone 4 times faster). If you’d like more information on Phoneburner click here to sign up for free and test it for up to 7 hours.
Doesn’t happen overnight. Give yourself at least a month or 2 at any one online medium whether it be social media marketing, pay per click, or classified ads before you pull the plug. Must always be paying attention to what types of marketing work and what doesn’t. Focus on a few marketing strategies, to begin with, and be consistent.
Work on yourself. Constantly be working on becoming a better person a better leader. Read every day and attend training calls and live events. Never stop learning, so you always grow. This business isn’t just about marketing, it’s also about personal development. There is a saying “As you grow, so will your business”. Tap into your mentors, get a coach, become not just good, but great at whatever it is you desire.
Create a Blog just like this one with your picture. If you desire to become an MLM Superstar you will need a blog just like this one. One with your name and your picture and what you do. You need step away from the crowd and become your own expert. And start blogging every day or once a week or at least a few times per month. This will not only generate you leads but help you generate clients for a coaching biz to go alongside your network marketing biz (2 income streams) and possibly more if you promote affiliate programs. I currently promote a few affiliate programs which also generates additional income. This blog actually has the ability to generate up to 4 or 5 income streams with the same amount of work.

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).
