Revealed: How A Video Challenge Boosted My Views on Facebook

It’s like almost 4 in the morning.  Thirty of us have taken on a challenge by our mentor David Wood to shoot a video, get the most view, likes, comments, and shares all in an effort to win a contest to be apart of his leadership mastermind event in Costa Rica this October 2016. Now, I will confess that I was like “huh?” Like why not just charge me to attend or something like that. Well now that I have taken on this challenge to compete for a spot at the table, I’ve come to realize a few things.

1. It’s was a lesson to get us out of our comfort zones. That’s right. Most people are so afraid of not doing things right, saying the wrong thing, etc. That fear holds most people back. This challenge was to inspire us to make action and overcome that fear. I will confess I was nervous and like “WTH?”  If I want to be able to help people, I’ve got to conquer my own fears.  <—Click the link to see the video.

2. It was a lesson to show us that we can influence people to take action, get them engaged, and earn their support. That’s the basic definition of leadership. It’s something we all have.  Even if I got 2 views on a video, I still had engagement and support from those viewers. They viewed the post!!!! That’s the biggest  battle with any advertising/internet marketing/etc. Getting people to actually look at your content, and hold their attention. I did that!!!!

FACEBOOK STATS

3. It got us over our fears of making fools of ourselves on camera. Now, I will confess I don’t like video blogging. Yet, it has been proven time and time again it’s the most effective and produces the highest engagement with audiences.  So, I did it!!! I made my video on   Facebook Live .  <— click this link to see the video. I’ve only used that Facebook feature two times. Today was the second time.  I was so nervous!!!!

4. This challenge also proves that people are more likely to engage with you with a video because it shows your personality… basically you.  It’s raw and live. More importantly…it uses the majority of people senses: see and hear. Where as a blog post is only seeing, while a PodCast is only hearing.  The more sense that are engaged, the more people are engaged.

Thanks to what I have learned this weekend on internet marketing and taking on this challenge, I have generated several hundred views in minutes.  Thus proving his point of the power of videos in internet marketing. It’s like woah!

Take a look at the video, like it, comment, and share it. Then go do your own video and put it out there. Let people see you, connect with you, hear your voice, and know that you are real. You’ve got value to add to their world that can make a huge difference for them. That’s what it is all about, we each help each other to be better!!

I want to thank you for supporting me in this challenge by viewing, liking, commenting, and sharing the video. Please let me know that you have, so that I can thank you!!! This challenge is major proof – no one wins without the support of others.

 

Thank you!

Tools To Help You To Be Who You Must Become To Win

The Slight Edge

First let me just say this – buy this book! If you ever think, feel like, wonder, doubt, or can’t seem to figure out why crap just keeps happening to you… despite the fact you’ve done all you can to keep it 100. Then this book is for you!

Listen, I’ve struggled with success and failures. In the real-estate bubble I had 3 homes and lost them. In the sales bubble, I would hit high numbers – then go back down. It wasn’t until I started to learn to internet marketing with Empower Network, that I discovered this book and why I was not being consistent in my actions. This book is knocking the gray lenses on my eyes right off. This book has shown me that it is the little things that we do or don’t do, that makes all the difference.  Success is just a bunch small little boring things that must be done. This book reminded me… that winning is in the completion of the small things. The stuff no one cares about, because it just seems so unimportant. For example in business to business sales, you must make sales calls to schedule appointments. No sale calls no appointments. No quota achievement, no commissions.  League bowler…rush the shot -pull the bowling ball to the left or right. In our rush rush society everyone wants the baby – not the labor/pregnancy. You will learn that time is really on your side. Just in chapter 5 alone, you will clearly see that time is going to pass regardless of your choices – the question is will you let time help you or let time pass you by.  One more cool thing about this book. At the end of each chapter they actually share live testimonials from people all around the world. People who have different goals and desires, and how they have put the book to good use to reach them. You and I can do the same.

One final thought. Just last week I was struggling with making sales calls. I didn’t want to call those cold leads.  However, after reading this book I was aware of the power of my choices. Yes, I could have not made those calls. And life would have continued. Yet, not making those calls would have resulted in no activity. No possibility for a closed deal, meeting with a potential client, or maybe an introduction to someone they know.  Thus I made those calls…and now I can honestly say I took the actions. Isn’t that what a 200% sales quota achiever would have done? He/she would have made those calls…and even if they didn’t reach anyone on the phone. While doing those calls, I got inspired to mail those leads some marketing materials… let’s see how it goes. When you know the power of your decisions and how they impact your goals, you will start to make better decisions consistent with who you want to be.  Get the book!

The Compound Effect

 Yes, I am going to say BUY THE BOOK!!!!!  So when I bought “The Slight Edge” it was recommended that I get this book by Darren Hardy! This guy is a freaking genius.  Look, I just wrote an article on the power of Be/Do/Have. If you focus on “be” then you will “do” and you will “have.” This book a tool to get you to “be” the person you must “be” so that you can “do” what must be done, so that you can “have” what you want. It’s really that simple.

If you look on page 72, you will see that he address the need to ‘be’come the person that is required to hit your new goal. You can’t be a professional bowler, as an amateur. You can’t lose and keep out 20 pounds without being a healthy person. I can’t be 200% quota achiever, as 140% quota person. It just doesn’t work – corn will never grow in sweet potatoes.

Another cool aspect of this book, each chapter has action steps for you and I to really drive home the message of the book. In the first chapter you will be asked to write out your excuses that you cling to not be a group fitness instructor, internet marketer, 200% of quota achiever in your sales job, whatever. Write out a list of small things you can stop doing that might be compounding your results in the wrong direction. Then write a list of steps you can take, no matter how small, to reach your destination. Finally write out a list of your successes. We all have them…marriage, a relationship that lasted more than a weekend. A cool thing with our parents, family, friends. Or just the fact you can sell snow to an Eskimo. We all have a lot more going for us than we acknowledge.  It’s eye opening to see that if I continue to build upon my wins, things just keeps getting better.   

Finally, this book is packed with a resource guide that’s designed to help you maximize your compounding experience. I don’t want to give it all away, go get the book, read it, and apply it – and win!!!

Listen these tools will work for any goal you have. They will work in any industry, field, lifestyle, etc. See a screw diver is only concerned with being a screw diver and being used correctly as intended. You want to use these tools to help you to become the person you need to be, so that you can start to do, do more of, become consistent in doing what’s required, for you to have what you want. That’s the only real way to get your vibrations in alignment with what you want. Your vibrations is reflected in your being and doing. If you aren’t getting the results you want, then only you can change it. The faster you realize that the success you want is waiting on you to line up, the faster you can have it. Use these tools to help you get there faster.  

Finally, I only discovered these books recently from the internet marketing program I am taking. I was listening to an inner circle audio training and they mentioned these books. So I bought them and read them. The program requires you invest in your personal development by reading 30 minutes a day and listing to an audio book. I’ve been doing it for awhile and things are just popping. The things I am learning, the person I am becoming, the way I respond to things is just different. One of my friends told me that she’s noticed a change just the other day.  So yeah, it’s worth it, because I’m worth it!!!! 

You’ve got to invest in yourself  to be a better husband, father, wife, mother, student, employee, bowling buddy, cyclist, uncle, employee, marketer…it doesn’t matter. Nothing grows on this planet without TLC! Your mind, life, and future are no different.  You must “be” who you must become to win. Start now.  

 Take care!

How Success Is Linked To Actions – 3 Quotes To Inspire You To Actions

We all have a dream of making it big, telling our love ones that they don’t have to worry about money, or telling the folks at the plant you ain’t coming back. We all dream of that day. Some of us take actions/steps to reach that goal, while some of us sit around and say some day. So for those of us who take those steps/actions, we open up a business or we join a network marketing opportunity. We get off to a great start, then we lose steam. This thing called life starts to eat at us. The wife starts demanding more time. The kids need new shoes, and of course the husband is acting a damn fool. Yet, that dream of success is calls and beckons you come forth. So at this point you just need something to help you get over that “hump.” You want to be reminded that success is a lot hard of work. It will keep you up at night, and you will need the physical strength of 10 bears to make this happen. So here are some quotes that I found to give your body/mind some needed recharge. Keep these posted somewhere, to remind yourself – success is just an action step ahead.

“Success Is Created By Learning and Doing Success.” Earl L. Jones
I really came to this conclusion while learning how to scuba dive a few weekends ago in Monterrey, CA. The only way to achieve anything, or any level of success in anything – at the job, at home, driving a car, etc. You must learn how to do it and then do what you’ve learned. Just think for second. Did you come out of your mom’s womb knowing how to drive a car? Did you know how to read? Did you know how to talk and form something of a complete sentence? You did not. Let’s take it one step further, how much training did you complete on your job/business/etc? So if you want to change your definition of success, achieve a new level of success, or just be a higher degree of success, then you must learn and do what you’ve learned to achieve the success you want. Go learn how to be the success you want, do what you are told, and watch what happens.

12552271_1014212235287001_369747923_n“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.” Richard Branson

Read this quote again. Do you notice a pattern here? Parents, did you read to your kids from the “rule book” on parenting about walking? No, you did not. You taught your little one how to walk…and you let them fall. At some point they got it down, but not without trying and falling. Exactly, that’s how we are with success. We must learn the success steps, fall down, then get up again. Walking requires action…success requires action. Hell even as adults we trip while walking, but that doesn’t stop us from getting up, laughing about it, and posting it on social media.

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk – and TO ACT.”  Andre Malraux 

We all have goals and dreams. Your goal could be to learn internet marketing, start a business, grow your business, or just to get through the day. The only way any of that is going to happen is with action. My experience has been that I get to caught up in the  “I don’t know what to do.” Or I got caught up in the “I’m scared they will laugh at me.” It happens to all of us. And we must just realize something. If we can get in our cars, on our motorcycles, on our bikes, jog in a not so well lighted park, or work at our jobs, then going for goals is just as easy if not easier. The biggest thing that stops us, is that we are so familiar with our “normal.”  That’s where learning, actions, learning, actions, etc comes in. That creates our new normal, and now the achievement of a particular goal is achieved.

Success is learned actions repeated over and over. Walking is learned repeated over and over. Talking is learned. Reading is learned. Even driving your car to and from work is learned. If you want to succeed in any business, sales position, career, publishing, even just how to work out better, you’ve got to learn and then take the actions required. That’s the only way you are going to know if you what you learned works our not. So whatever dream you have, there’s a course on how to do it and win. Go get take that course, learn it, and then do it.

Internet Marketing 2.0 – Tools That Can Have You Marketing On The Internet Like A Ninja

Did you know there over 2 billion people on this planet that have social media accounts? Of that 2 billion, about 1.5+ billion are actively used. Did you know about 45% of world’s population, that’s about 3 billion people actively use the Internet? Just about 3.6 billion people use their smartphone and tablets to access the web. That’s according to brief report posted on WearSocial

Now with those type of numbers, is it any wonder why successful organizations/home businesses/multi-level marketers/internet marketers focus on social media interaction and syndication? If you had the right tools, training, and support how much of that could you get for yourself and your business?

  1. Kalatu Premium

    kalatu imageNow before I describe this hack in details. Let’s just put this out here. If you have not read my previous blog posts about blogging/social media – go read them. This piece is the next step…that I discovered by talking with other successful internet marketers. (As I learn, so will I share. I want us all to win.)

    I know I told you to blog…and so now I am going to give you an actual tool. Kalatu Premium is a blogging platform that is being used by over 100’k online marketers. It’s what I am currently using…and I am using because of the rich content and online training it provides. This product not only makes it simple to create a blog post, it actually has learning modules on blogging/internet marketing/ etc. So you blog and learn at the same time. I tried it on a trail membership, posted a couple of blogs and was like… “this is so much easier than I thought.” I love the fact you can monetize your blog with affiliate marketing links ;-). It comes loaded with premium blog themes, widgets, plugins & applications. You have 10 blogs on 1 account  – a blog for everything on your mind. Check it out if you are still looking for a blog platform, or if you feel stuck with a free one/something that requires a lot of time to just make simple post. This could be a good fit for you and your internet marketing objectives. So far, it’s working for me and several 100k+ marketers.

     

  2. blog 11 of 21 of 1GetResponse Email AutoResponder

    I can’t stress this enough. You must have an email auto responder. How else do you plane to stay in touch with your audience? I am currently using GetReponse – because it works will with the Kalatu Premium Blogging Platform. It’s simple to use. It also has a learning tools to help you with OJT (On the job training). If you have a blog/website and you don’t have this tool, then you are just playing. Real simple and easy to use…and very cost effective. (Yes, if you think you can build a brand online, without investing in tools and technology, then you might want to stick with watching reruns of your favorite tv shows.) You can create all sorts of email campaigns for your business. Let your clients know about every post, if you are going to watch a football game, any new products, or tips and tricks you have to cleaning up after our pets/kids/love ones/or those in-laws. People want to feel a connection with you and your organization…this a faster/quicker way of doing it!

     

Syndicate to Social Media 

OnlywireNow this hack I just discovered and I wanted to get it out to you as quickly possible. This tool OnlyWire will allow you to post your blog/website to over 30 social media sites in minutes! There are so many social media sites it’s hard to keep up. Yet this company does it for me. I’ve posted a few of my previous blog posts to some of the sites, and already got some new visitors to my blog. It’s all about driving real/genuine traffic to your blog!!! I can’t stress this enough…if people can’t find your website…they will never come to your website. So get this and use it. In extra fairness, you may want outsource the setting up the social media platforms they have listed. Or you may want to do it yourself. It’s up to you…but either way. This is a must have!!!

 

 

Internet marketing is not as hard as you think. Way too many people are doing it successfully. Now I’ve tried this before with a just a simple blog platform. It was cumbersome (like going a date with a cheap person.) I couldn’t easily add affiliate marketing links and banners. After I paid for hosting, I had to pay for better looking themes…and blah blah blah. It’s like hanging out with your ex’s parents at a shut-in. Plus I had no one/no support structure/no built in training. I threw in the towel!!!

Then I found Kalatu Premium blogging system. It had the training, learning, the support, the community. People I could connect with… and I was like okay. So I’ve now posted my 16 blog in the last 2-3 weeks. I’ve had over 1500 people look at my Facebook fan page. I’ve connected with some great people… and I learned of a new tool to help me push out my blog…that I am now sharing with you. Not to mention, I have a full time job, I also teach indoor cycling 4 days a week, a league bowler, taking swimming lessons so that I can get scuba diver certified, plus I volunteer in my community. Plus, I have to see my mamma back home several times year. Do I sound like I have time to figure this stuff out on my own, and expect to win at this new game? Exactly. Yes, it’s hard work. It’s not get rich quick/easy. Now the question is will you use these tool or something similar to get yourself to where you want to be?  That’s all that really matters.Let me know your thoughts/comments/feedback in the Facebook box below. If you want to stay connected you can connect with me on Facebook. And if you want to stay inspired and motivated, sign up for my blog. I am learning/sharing as I am going.

How To Win In Network Marketing – Top 3 Tools That Will Help You To Win

Regardless of whatever network marketing/direct sales program you belong to, you’ve probably have already realized that talking to family/friends may not be working for you. You may also find that just asking co-workers/bowling buddies, people at the park to join your gig is also a challenge. Well, there is another way to win at this thing call network marketing/direct sales. There are 3 top tools out there to help people like you and me – finally get the results we want and win at this game.  Let’s take a look.
  1. Blogging!!!!

    When I started my multi-level marketing ventures, I had no idea what I was doing. I was told to talk to my friends and family first. Talk to everyone I know about the business. Let’s be frank…why would I talk to people about a network marketing business while sipping on cosmos. Not to mention who wants to be that family member that running around the Thanksgiving dinner table talking about their HerbalLife ventures and meetings. Just the thought of it sounds so boring and hideous. People have enough drama in their family without the added support of some get rich thing. Man that’s the wrong attitude to have!!!!!

    Here’s what I’ve discovered now that I’ve decided to combine my passion for group fitness and training with a company like HerbalLife. Every business shouts their name(s) from the mountaintops. Can you name a successful business that does not toot their own horn every chance they get? Can you think of one successful business, even a small local business that does not shout out from the mountaintops about their business and what they can do for folks? Well, I can… all those who are out of business. Let’s be frank, marketing is huge and important. One of the cheapest ways to promote any business, especially network marketing is “blogging!” Dude, Dudeet, blogging gives any business street cred!

    Like totally – yes freaking way. I am just as shocked as you are! Blogging is cheap, in some cases free, and has the potential to reach millions who could completely turn your business and life around in a second. Tell you what. Here’s a challenge go to the website of every company you love…and find the link to their blog. If the big boys/girls are doing blogging, then so must you and I. (This is the best peer pressure.  The one that makes us grow, learn, and become better for it. This ain’t that crazy stuff we all did in 5th grade and get our butts tore up by our parents.) We must tell more than parent(s) about our business. Aren’t we in business to help people to reach their goals?  The next time you drive down the street, notice the business signs you see. How are potential buyers suppose to find the business without a sign? How are your potential customers suppose to find you without a sign (blog?) If you are in any business and you don’t have a blog go get one or several! Write about whatever you want… and watch it change your business!!!!

  2. Social Media

    Like I said…uhm back in the day, I was not going to talk to my friends and family about my previous network marketing events while we are doing whatever. Like why would I? That was such the wrong attitude and approach, especially when they were talking to me about all of their business drama. Of course me with my masters degree from Webster University I was all to willing to be a sounding board. And I must admit…gave some good suggestions. Hey, Webster gave me a good education.

    Here’s what I’ve recently discovered. Everyone and anyone who is running a successful business use social media. Look at a Amazon!!! They leverage the heck out of social media! Another challenge for you…if you think I am kidding. Open up another internet browser tab and go to your bank’s website. Look for the social media links. Now go to your favorite secret website. Did you notice their social media links? Now go to Amazon’s website and look at their social media. Do you see a pattern?

    I can hear it now…but they have huge operating budgets. So what! Facebook is free for and we can leverage the heck out of it. We can post our blogs to our pages… we can talk about our favorite things…etc. We can do it. We are already doing when we post crap about being at the grocery store with Peggy, Barbara, and Susan who doesn’t like Barbara because she’s got to squeeze the tomatoes every time she in the grocery store. Even our favorite recording artists and movie stars leverage social media. Even the FBI use them!!! So if it’s good enough for them…then why not for you and I?

    If you need help with this stuff…which I did and getting…and now sharing with you, then click the link in the photos. Hell invest in your own success… and make your own dreams come true. Aren’t we worth it?

  3. MindSet

    Finally, we must change our mindsets about working for ourselves. As I’ve shared, my attitude towards my network marketing businesses was not on level or point, especially when I look at my performances in my sales career. I’ve produced over 100% of quota for years! That attitude I had toward my network marketing ventures would have never gotten me where I am today, nor the level clients.  In the day to day job I have call customers, set appointments, cold call, talk about what the bank and I can to do make life easier for them.

    My first straight only commission sales job, I walked the streets and passed out flyers for home security systems in neighborhoods that were not friendly to black people! One my biggest home security sales came from a customer who said, “My dog normally barks and growls at colored folks.” Yes, I sold that client almost $500 in extra alarm equipment, while sipping on sweet ice-cold ice tea and playing fetch with their vicious dog in their living room. The key was my mindset. It was all about making their lives easier. How can I show them a level of protection that eases their minds, while being cost effective? It never occurred to me I was in the middle of no-where and it was after 6pm. Nor did it occur to me that I could drive all that way and lose the sale. It just never entered my mind. When I sit down with a customer, all I focus on is helping them win at their game. It is all about mindset. To win at anything your mind has to be right.

    I have read many books on selling… and none of it transferred over to my own network marketing businesses until recently. Now that I’ve got coaching, support, and some help…things are clicking and connecting.  We’ve got to get our mindset from “employee” to “employer” and that takes some doing, training, and coaching. I’ve been in business to business sales long enough to tell you – a lot companies go out of business because they run their company as if they are still an employee. Change your mindset!!!

At the end of the day, we all want to win. We want what we want…and we have to find a way to get it legally. If you want to win at your business, take it to the next level, or learn some better ways to attract clients by levering the power of a blog and social media; then click the links to get some tools that can make a difference for you and your business. The time is going to fly by whether you make a change in this aspect of your life and business… the only question is which side of time do you want to be on.
