The Need For Real Training

real trainingHow many time have you heard someone trying to “get you into” their business talk about how you would receive all of the training and support from the company once you signed up? Of course, once you in the program those first few days are extremely exciting! as the days pass and the “new” wears off iyou start to see the holes in the program and one of the biggest is the lack of a comprehensive training system.

I think one of the things that folks really need right now is a training program, even a course with a classroom, where they can come to learn from successful marketers and business people.

You see, you have to really understand something about me. I try to run on common sense and common sense tells me that there are a lot of people out there that would like to make some extra money online and even learn how to do this stuff well enough to make a career of it and that what they need is the education required to actually be able to pull off this whole idea of working when you want and where you want. Now if I use my common sense, I’m going to end up designing and implementing some course of instruction to serve those folks.l

Hmm. Novel approach to a problem that just shouldn’t exist. I say this problem shouldn’t exist because this is the very thing that network marketing programs and internet marketing “gurus” have said that they offer is training. Most of the time you get all signed up, these folks throw you a bone in the form of a link or two and maybe a video or an ebook and call that training. They ALWAYS seem to be able to offer tools that you can buy that will help you build your business, but this always seems to be a way to help these folks pad their own wallets.

People need training, it’s as simple as that, and most businesses are not providing it. So, without a doubt, there is a huge market for real training. I’m talking about a comprehensive training package here that people can sign up for, go through and come out on the other side with information that will propel them to the next level.

So what would the average person be able to complete if they had a real, comprehensive training course that would educate them in the ways of proper internet marketing techniques, methods and strategies? My belief is that it would be a HUGE benefit and you would see a rather large group of folks able to achieve online success.

This is the thought behind my latest adventure also known as The Elite Marketing Systems Group! This group does in fact take a novice marketer, give them the information in a six-week, step by step course that will teach them how to effective market, generate traffic and convert that traffic using various, but typical systems. There is no fee associated with this training, but there is a price to pay.

First, a person that wants this training is going to have to commit to a training regimen that is similar to an online training course.

Second, there is an opportunity that is attached to this program that everyone would have to join – there is no charge for joining, so this shouldn’t be a big deal.

Other than these two requirements, there is very little else that we concern ourselves with. This, hopefully, is going to be a “game changer,” and I have every intention of changing how business is conducted. So, if you are looking for something new, something that can really help you, this may be where you want to start!

Does Network Marketing Really Work or Is It Just a Huge Scam?

Of Course Network Marketing Works

Does network marketing really work or is it a scam? Well, let me first say that I’m no where near being objective about this. I’ve made money with my network marketing opportunity and I’ve seen a lot of other folks make money as well, so I could end this post up with a hearty YES IT WORKS!

However, doing something like that would make for bad blogging and while my blogging efforts aren’t always the best, I do OK and would like to continue down this internet path utilizing my whole blog platform.

Now, let’s get down to business. Why do you think network marketing doesn’t work for so many people? I mean this thing is suppose to have a 95% failure rate, right? Why do so many fail?

To Succeed in MLM You Must Get the Training

First, most people are NEVER properly trained. If you want to market your program online then you’d better get some information on how to effectively market on the Internet. So training, or a lack of training rather, is the first problem.

Learn to Generate Free Leads

Lead generation is the second problem with a network marketing program. Let’s face it, if you cannot generate leads and convert those leads into paying customers or team members then you are dead in the water. You HAVE to have leads for your program and you need to have highly targeted leads for your program.

The good news is this, if you learn how to do it, attracting people that are interested in what you have to offer is not that difficult a process to learn or even teach to other people. The key is to use systems to do the selling and closing for you.

The Problem With an Auto-ship

A third “problem” is that of an auto-ship. Now we can talk about how companies are ripping off their distributors by promoting the auto-ship process, but here is the deal on that.

If you have a steady flow of leads and you are recruiting new members to your organization and they are on the auto-ship program too then your own auto-ship is not a problem because you are making money. If you are making money then you are not so concerned with your auto-ship and you are even probably more than happy to spend the money and get the product or service every month.

Most of these problems have to do with perspective. Let’s face it, if you are making money then all of the other so called “problems” go away. If you are not making money then these same “problems” are magnified and that’s ALL you can think about. Eventually, you will quit.

The secret to succeeding online with a network marketing program is to have a proven marketing system that will help you generate leads, get the accurate and real training you need and that you can actually build a business with. This system will also have to have the ability to work online while you are at work or asleep.

If you are truly serious about building a network marketing business and are looking for a system then click here to find out more.

You won’t even have to pull out your wallet because there is nothing to buy – just information that you can get immediate access to.

Answering the Questions of an Internet Marketing Newbie

internet marketing newbiesA lot of times when I am teaching new students or promoting a new product I will have one or two that will give me a call and ask me simple questions about marketing and I’m pretty happy to help them out if I can. Of course, I don’t know everything, but I’m always willing to share what I’ve learned over the years.

I also get receive questions such as:

How long will it take to make money with this program?

Can I really generate traffic to my site with classified ads?

Do I have to start a blog?

Do I have to own my own website?

What’s the fastest way to start making money with [insert any program here]?

What I always have to remind folks is that internet marketing is a process. It’s a process of learning and it’s a matter of developing a consistent process in terms of the actions you take to market yourself and your products or services.

But, I’ve decided to answer some of these questions as I’m betting that I’m not the only person that gets them and sometimes it is just nice to get a different, although not necessarily better, perspective!

How long will it take to make money with this program?

To be completely and absolutely honest with you, there is not really any way that I can answer this question. It depends.

I know people that can sign up for a program in the morning and be receiving money in one form or another by the evening. It all comes down to how well you can market. Ironically, people that KNOW how to market online do not answer this question…they already know whether or not they can make money with the program and generally know about how long things will take.

The better you can learn to market and the more effective you become will radically change how long it will take to make money with any program.

Can I really generate traffic to my site with classified ads?

I never understand why people ask if it is really possible to promote their sites with a method that I recommend and teach. I just want to say, “No, I’ve been lying this whole time because I just want to watch you squirm.”

You absolutely can generate traffic to your site with classified advertising if you:

  1. know where to post ads
  2. know a little about ad copy
  3. post consistently

We have all heard of craigslist.com and it gets a lot of traffic, but posting in there a few times a week and doing nothing else is not going to get you anywhere. I always teach post 3 times a day everyday, post in different cities and post links that promote curiosity in what you have to offer.

Do not try and explain the entire program you are marketing. Focus on the market you are trying to attract. For example, if I want to attract stay at home moms, then I will write a headline like:

Simple Program Allows Moms to Work From Home

Just about any stay at home mom will at least look at this ad. You would just ad in something like “No experience required, free training included,” and you would then provide information to a website or capture page. You want people to start seeking your program or system. Let the system sale the opportunity. I don’t like to sell and chances are the people answer this ad don’t want to sale either and they especially don’t want to be sold! Remember, it’s called attraction marketing.

Do I have to start a blog? or Do I have to have my own website?

I would love to tell people, “Yes, you need a blog. Your competitor has a blog or a website, your consumers want to go to a blog or website. Of course you need a blog.”

The truth is, “Not necessarily.” I highly recommend a blog, not a standard or typical website platform, but a blog. Many reasons for this, but blogs are very Google and other search engine friendly. Blogs can rank well and rank fast. Today blogs are very customizable, especially WordPress blogs with all of the different plugins you can add.

You want to start branding yourself as an online marketing professional and a blog is one of the best ways to start doing this. Basically, you want to ask yourself are you going to do this with long-term goals in mind or are you just wanting to make a hundred bucks and move on down the road. The choice is yours.

internet marketing newbieOne thing that you have to get right in the head about straight away is that marketing online is a process. There is a steep learning curve that we all must get through and the education never stops! As the internet changes, as the algorithms of the search engines change we must adapt and we must learn the new rules, but if you are willing to learn and if you are willing to put forth the consistent effort to build something grand, you will find online success.
