Can you really attract people to you online using attraction marketing? The answer of course is yes.

Attraction Marketing: Is the new  model for doing business. It leverages the internet and social media to attract interested customers to you instead of you chasing them. This is a very useful way of generating leads for your network marketing business but can also be used for traditional business.

This method allows you to leverage the speed of the internet, it’s cost effective and also the reach is unlimited for finding motivated customers and prospects.  You can do this as a part time business.

The first step in attraction marketing is to give your prospects useful information about how to build their business.

Your goal is to become a specialist in a specific  marketing method or strategy so you become the go to person.

Here are 3 of the mistakes I see online using attraction marketing methods and how they can be avoided.

Attraction Marketing is a great way to get your prospects to come to you . If you set this up correctly with a self-branding attraction marketing system  you will never have to worry about where your leads will come from in the future.

There are some attraction marketing mistakes I’ve noticed people making.

If you’ve made some of these mistakes never fear because I’ve also given you the solution to the problem!

Attraction  Marketing Mistake #1

You pretend to have all the answers and set yourself up as an expert before you’re ready.

It’s OK not to have all the answers!

A lot of marketers pretend to be successful and know their stuff when in truth they really don’t. It’s not surprising since many guru’s online teach this tactic.

Honesty is the best policy always!

The premise of attraction marketing is to set yourself up as the expert and a leader.

Many people pretend to be experts when they haven’t done the work and don’t yet have experience.

It is such an exciting idea to have a steady flow of leads coming in on autopilot instead of you chasing them that some marketers forget to check their egos at the door. It’s not about you the marketer making money off of people who are struggling. It’s about helping people who really need solutions to their problems building a business.

Unfortunately in the excitement to capitalize on this type of marketing many people go overboard. Some even live the lifestyle before their success happens. It’s a recipe for disaster. It’s ok to believe in the dream but it’s also a good idea to remain grounded and remain practical.

Do this instead

Admit it when you don’t have the answer!

This goes a long way to building credibility. Believe it or not you can build trust by admitting you don’t have all the answers. Honesty will build a strong foundation which will carry your business into the future.

Develop skills as you grow. As a marketer the more skills you have the more people you can help and the more success you will create. You don’t have to pretend. In fact most people will see through the facade.

Be yourself, you are the brand and you don’t want to tarnish that for any reason.

Attraction Marketing Mistake #2

You subscribe to a system and then find out it doesn’t’ brand you.

There are many mlm attraction marketing  systems out there that can help you learn and develop your skills. Part of the allure is the attraction marketing system also furnishes a way to attract and capture leads. The best way to attract leads is to build “You” as the brand.

Be careful which system you choose . Make sure it brands you.

 Your long term goal in attraction marketing  is to brand yourself and develop a business foundation you can build on for your future.

Do this instead:

The system you subscribe too must  be able to brand you and have a customization sales funnel. You want to put your own video  and audio into the system. You want freedom to change text and make it your own.

As with all things in life “If it’s worth doing it’s worth doing right.” Take the time to learn how things work.  Make sure you are building something that cannot be jeopardized by outside sources. Build “You” the brand and own it.and add to your skill set as you go.

BIG TIP:  Be dedicated to learning attraction marketing strategies.

Prospects are very knowledgeable in today’s online market. So look sharp and learn as much as you can.

Video is the quickest way to make an impression and helps your prospect make the decision to give you their contact information. Show confidence in the things you know and are good at. Offer value packed information with you own personal flavor.

Video allows your prospects to hear your voice and see you in action. This goes beyond any other marketing method for building your brand, establishing trust.

If you’re scared of video. Start slow but keep going until you become more comfortable because I promise you it will get easier.

We are all unique in our own way and there’s plenty of people looking for information and help with their home based business. Remember the failure rate in network marketing is a whopping 97% .

Attraction  Marketing Mistake #3

You give up before you reach your goals.

It takes time to build a business online. Unfortunately many people buy into the dream of supersonic speed in success working from home. Most people want it but they don’t know what it takes to achieve it. After a few failures they quit.

Online network marketing is not a get rich quick proposition. It takes time, dedication and staying power. Most people quit before they see results. They think they are a failure because they didn’t get rich in the first few months.

Do this instead

Read about network marketing before you join a company. There are some great books out there that outline the trials and tribulations of building a successful home based business. One of my favorite’s is ” Beach Money” by Jordan Adler. He was in 11 different companies before he finally figured out what it really takes to be a success in network marketing.

Set realistic expectations.

Know it will take some time. It could take as much as 3 to 5 years with consistent effort.

Learn how to stay motivated by setting goals and practicing positive mindset techniques;

It’s ok to get excited about your new business in fact it’s mandatory but soon the new shiny wears off, then what. You must find ways to keep going and it all boils down to your mindset and belief in yourself. Read my blog post here on mindset.

There are many things you can do to stay motivated and focused and there’s plenty of help out there. So just look around and you will find what you seek.

I’d love to hear what you have to share.

What are your experiences with attraction marketing? What has helped you more than anything else with marketing online? What are you biggest challenges?

The computer is a network marketer’s most important tool and makes it possible for us to connect to the world wide web.

The computer

Internet marketing Tool

So here we are the 10th Day of April. What’s on your agenda for today?

For me it is getting used to a new computer since my beloved computer of 6 years just gave up and died.

Let me explain how I felt when my computer died ….NO!!!!!!!!!

This can’t be happening. In fact I had just said to myself concerning my computer…(you know mind talk), self I said, “I sure have taken good care of you  my dear, old, cherished, computer.”  I said ;” you may not be the prettiest, the fastest or have the biggest memory but you are consistent and you never leave my stranded by the side of the road.” I was saying this because it has lasted and lasted just like the every ready bunny with no end in sight! Ugh! Kiss of Death! Why did I say that to myself? Why did I have that realization?  Maybe it is because I’m reading “Think and Grow Rich” you know your thoughts have energy, right?  Maybe my computer was trying to tell me in oh so many ways and I wasn’t listening. You know listening is a skill you must master in network marketing. I didn’t listen, I assumed it would live forever. Very shortly thereafter it died, quietly without a whimper….

I should have known better for patting myself on the back thinking what a good person I was for the kind and gentle care I had given  my computer.

Do you believe it? Is this the way you treat your computer?  Heck, if the truth be known I had really abused the poor data works. Yep I admit it, I really wasn’t that good to it in fact I killed my computer. I admit it. I rode it hard just like riding a horse through the desert. It never complained, sometimes a little slow but I always had faith it could finish the race. Little did I know how my computer really felt; it was more than a little resentful. It was tired of all those late nights, all those webinars, all that Skype! It repaid me alright by choking up and crashing!  I know I’m to blame and it didn’t help that I had just started  some video marketing for my new You Tube campaign. I am to blame. I was shoving a steady stream of videos down it’s throat and little did I know it was choking on the volume with little memory left, I pushed and pushed until it could handle no more. The monitor blinked one last time and it was gone. I have no one to blame but myself! Rest in peace Gigabyte.

 What to do? Greive a little, but no time to waste cause the lead generation must go on.I had to go out and purchase a new computer, right then, right away, ASAP, after all I am an internet marketer!

How can I fill my sales funnels without a computer? How can I manage my Pay per Click? How can I connect on Facebook? How can I upload and download? How can I produce articles for my article marketing strategy without a computer? You get the picture.  Awwwww, I don’t need this! Not now. Where are all my files? They are still in the old dead computer!  I have no Article Marketing Wizard, Article Marketing Robot, or Best Spinner, I feel………naked and alone ….somebody please help me.

This is serious, don’t laugh!

I found someone to help me. His name is Shad and he works at Best Buys! Thank you Shad for your confident questionnaire that got me back on the right track. Shad has saved my internet marketing career! Do I owe him a commission?

What does one day off do for your internet marketing business? Well not much unless you have planned to take that day off. I didn’t so now it’s catch up time and to top it off; I now have to figure out this new computer. I have to connect with my new friend here. It’s so clean, so fresh, and so innocent.  I can’t wait to become friends with my new acquisition. First things firsts…..I want my files back!

Rest in Peace Sweet Dell……Hello HP!

How To Create A Facebook Fan Page Cover Photo

Facebook Timeline Fan Page Changes.


Facebook Fan Page Timeline

Last week I wrote a blog post on the changes Facebook has made to the Facebook Fan Pages in the new timeline format and I promised more information about these changes.

 In the mean time I have seen where many people are interested in making a cover photo for their Facebook Fan Page or WordPress Blog and may not know exactly how to do this.

So I put together a video explaining how I make my headers and cover photos for my Facebook Fan Page and also for my Word Press Blog.

Here it is: I hope this is helpful for those of you who may be struggling with this.

Let me know how your Fan Page cover photos turn out!

To Your Success,


Network Marketing: Levels of Success Part Two

Network Marketing :The Levels of Success Part Two

At this level you are starting to generate your own branded leads.

Congratulations You Have Reached the Top!

It is a good idea to start your on blog. You can also begin to participate in forums and advertise using many different methods, for example local classified, Craig’s List or even Drop Cards. Co-ops is another alternative method for advertising.

The goal here is to leverage your time and skills so you can work less than 20 hours per week and still sponsor 2 to 4 prospects per week.

At this time you should have leads coming in on a daily basis. Some push marketing and some pull. Also at this level you have team members who can participate in follow up calling. You can take a week off or a month!

You will be learning through personal development courses and training because you are the CEO of your company.

You are teaching other people to become leaders and do what you do.

The Third Level of Success

This is 90 to 100% pull marketing “Attraction Marketing”. This is where people are contacting you and connecting with you on Face Book, Linkedin and other social media sites. They are finding your content and training and they are buying you as the expert!

Because they “Know”, “like”, and “Trust”, you. They want to join you. They want you to teach them and train them.

Congratulations! You have become a master en roller by now. You’re getting people started in your business every day.

You are attracting who you are becoming. You are attracting a higher quality person. You plug them into your system and they will produce very quickly because they have experience. They are successful much quicker that you were because now you are attracting leaders. You have become a master communicator.

At this stage you are fully leveraged.

This is where you are building a business and not just a down line. This is where you are a marketing expert.

You can now write your own ticket!

You work less than 10 hours a week and still enroll 4 to 5 business builders per week. These are the people who want to get it done now! They have already reached success somewhere else in their life. They are winners and leaders.

The Fourth Level of Success

At this level you are a Jedi Warrior in Attraction Marketing.

Remember a body in motion tends to stay in motion and a body at rest stays at rest.

You must stretch and get out of your comfort zone. Connect with people, develop personal growth, pick up the phone and initiate contact!  You are getting better with these tools and your personal resources’. Your team is exploding and you’ll make so much money you don’t know what to do with it all.

You’ll be investing a portion of the money you make and contributing to charities you will have the ability to make the world a better place.

You will probably be a Millionaire!

This is the top of MLM Levels of Success.

Bam!……… over!
