The Real Me part 2

Magnetic Sponsoring

What is Magnetic Sponsoring? I’m glad you asked. As I would like to expand on this some.

If you have done any network marketing in the real world then you have tried the old school network marketing techniques. You know the 3 foot rule, hanging flyers, bugging your family and friends, and holding hotel meetings.

I know that when I first joined my first network marketing company, I was told to use these same techniques.  I was told to make a list of 100 people that I knew and basically call every one of them to ask and see if they would be interested in making some extra money. I found this so embarrassing.

I was only faced with questions I wasn’t able to answer, getting hung up on, and faced with nothing but rejection all the while getting pressure from my uplines.

When I was officially shunned by everyone that I knew, all my upline told me to do was to go out and buy some opportunity leads. This only led me to some more rejection and spending a bunch of money. And still no network making me money.

Now jump forward 20 years and I have now gotten myself into it all again but on line this time. No calling people I know but wasting $1000′s on PPC and buying online leads, having my email account shut down for spamming. Hell I was just doing as I was told and I was out of money, and still had nothing to show for it.

Then just as I was going to give up, I found what I consider to be the “life saver” for my business.

This life saver I speak of was Mike Dillard’s 7 Day Free Video Boot Camp.

In these 7 free videos Mike explained how I could attract an endless stream of prospects to me ready to join and actually get paid to prospect.

These videos have really changed the way I do business and they got me keen again.

In fact they where the first stage of the marketing system that I was building and they are the part of the first stage of the marketing system that was way better than anything I could have ever build that I joined.

So Mike Dillard is the man behind Magnetic Sponsoring and his videos and books are worth every dollar you will spend on them and more. If I had read them on day one I would have saved about $6000 and 6 months non profitable work. So do yourself a big favour and watch the videos. Today in fact Now.

The Real Me

The Real Me

Its time for the real me to step forward. For the past year I have been learning how to make money from the Internet. Day 1 I fall for a great sales pitch and signed up for a $3000 product that was going to let me retire in a few months. Not. The monthly fees for this product was $360. The training was terrible, but I through it was great, as I didn’t know any better. So after 3 months I had earned $300 from this product but minimum pay out was $500.
I had used up $7000 of our savings on product, adwords and buying leads and traffic. Boy was I dumb and for what. An ear bashing from the wife.
So I cut my loses got out of that marketing system. I still have the product and can use it for life. So it was not a total lost. The end product is cheap 5 star holidays that I will use and market again soon.
During this learning curve which will never stop. I came across Magnetic Sponsoring. I signed up for the book about building your business on a budget and started to use it. Shock horror I made some money. Then like a dumb ass I went off chasing the next idea. Now this was a complete package, websites training and products. To date I have had not one sale from this product, BUT the training within this product opened my eyes. It was worth every dollar I spent on the product. All 600 + of them. Now I do recommend the basic product at $97 as the information in this is worth 10 times more.
The next distraction cost me a couple of thousand but this time it had a money back guarantee. I had leant some thing.
So after 3 months of technical problems with this product I got my money back and made a profit due to the exchange rate going in my favour.
I went back to Magnetic Sponsoring and finally read the book about Magnetic Sponsoring. Man I should have read this months earlier. I would have saved myself $1000’s and months of time. Anyway. I started to put all this new found knowledge to use by putting together my own mailing list and product. I was two months into this when I came across the exact system I was building already done. A system that was 10000 times better than anything I was going to build. So I gave up my dream. Not really. I just stopped wasting my time and plugged into the ready built system.
So here I am 13 months later still not making heaps of money but for the $20000 I have spent over the past year I now have a number of websites promoting different products. I can now build and host a web page in a few hours. Get number 1 page ranking on Google.
So Now I’m going to write a real blog about what worked and what did not. You are welcome to join me on this journey.

If I can save you $20000 then my job is done.

How to add a free ebook to your emails

All the marketing gurus that I have been reading up on all keep saying add value,
“What value?” I ask; “A free ebook is a good place to start,” they say.
“Great where do I find one of those?”
“You can’t use mine, write your own.”
“ If I knew how to write one I wouldn’t be reading yours.”

You get the idea. All I wanted to do was add a free ebook to my email that was send out as a Thank You to the people that joined my list.

Step 1. Find the ebook. Well I have downloaded a number in my time so I must have one that is free to pass on.
I spent most of a wet Sunday reading all the legal stuff under the copyright notice on all the ebooks that I had downloaded, only to find one that I could use freely.
The high point was I cleaned up a lot of files.

Step 2. Rename the ebook that you wish to use so it’s all lowercase letters and has no spaces in the name.

Step 3. Open up the FTP that you use for your website and upload the ebook to your website.
Just place it in your www. file. The one with your Domain name.
What’s FTP you ask? That’s the program that you upload files to and edit your web page with.

Step 4. Write your Thank You letter in HTML. Turn your ebook title into a Hyperlink by highlighting the text then clicking the “link” icon (The chain link).
When the Insert Hyperlink box opens insert the full web address, which will be made up of http://www.YOURSITE.com/ebooktitle.pdf, into it.

Step 5. Test your email by sending it to yourself and test the link.

Now seat back and watch the money roll in. Right? Sorry but this is just one of the many little tricks you need to discover.
