4. The Compound Effect by Jeff Olson41hC5Pli3SL._SL160_

The small decisions that you and I make can either make us or break us. It may not happen right there on the spot, in most cases, however over time those little decisions add up. Either they can add up to a big win for us, or big loses.  This book isn’t just another feel good and be happy book. This book looks at every little thing we do or don’t do, and how it compounds to either spin us out of control or propels us to the next level. Jeff will point out stuff that you and I just probably wouldn’t even think about.  This book is good and so worth being on my list that I’ve written about it twice.  I promise you will not look at your decisions the same, because you will realize just how powerful they are. 

 

 

51Zm0PIE36L._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_5.  The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss

It’s a best seller.  Not to mention he lives in my area. This book talks about the life that we all want. We all want the ability to make our annual income in a month, weeks, or days. Tim took his 40k a year position and turned it into an 40k per month business in only 4 hours per week. I know!!! He will show you how to create your ideal life with proven methods.  Now I must confess, I just ordered the book because my mentor, David Wood suggested it during an event. Therefore, I got it. From what I’ve schemed so far…I wish I had read and applied its principles in 2007 when it first came out. It’s a must read if you are in any business venture! 

 

I can go on and on with book recommendations. Reading is how I changed my life and has helped me to reach some major wins in my life. I can’t stress it enough. The only way you will change into the person you must become in order to have your definition of success, you must change your thinking/attitudes/and beliefs.

Now get these books. Read them, apply their wisdom, and take action(s)! You will amaze yourself with your accomplishments.

How Does The Law of Attraction Work With Internet Marketing

In the last several years we’ve seen products and services offered on “law of attraction and marketing.” We’ve all seen someone who claims they have 7, 6, or 5 figures doing attraction marketing. So do you know what attraction marketing is? Can you tell me how the does the law of attraction work with internet marketing?  Exactly. So let’s break this down and put this in common every day language that folks can understand. Here’s why, this stuff does work and if you are reading this – you just proved it does. I can tell you that it works, again you are reading this blog. And I don’t have the budget for marketing like a Fortune 500 company does to get you to my blog.

photo-1457969414820-5fdd86fc0b84Let’s start at the beginning.  I will not assume you know what that law of attraction is or is not.  I am not going to quote too many people, because I want to keep this on “our level.” Esther and Jerry Hicks has a really simple definition of the law of attraction, “Like attracts like.” Napoleon Hill said in his famous book Think And Grow Rick.  “We become what we think about.” If you are a negative and grumpy person, your experiences in life will always be negative and grumpy.  If you constantly keep thinking you are poor, then the world will give you the experiences to support it.  You try to take a step to get ahead, then you take 2 steps back.  The car breaks down. The gas bill is 400 dollars past due. The kids’ need new shoes for school. Something always seem to come up, and take what little money you got left over from payday. Where as the rich person’s experience is completely opposite of that. We attract to ourselves what we think about!  We can talk about this all day, because it goes into actions/conversations with ourselves (verbal and non-verbal) right down to the foods to we eat. The law of attraction is real, and works regardless of how well you and I understand its impact on this planet.

So we know what the law of attraction is in a basic nutshell. Now let’s jump all the way forward to internet marketing. Let’s connect the dots. We get what we think about all the time. Whether you think about it or not, want it or not.  So now you want you to change your world. You want to leverage the power of the internet to create an extra source of income, start a business, get clients, or whatever. The law of attraction and internet marketing doesn’t care if you are promoting life insurance, books, Herbal Life, or free tips to hell and back. It doesn’t matter!!!!!  Here’s why, the basic definition of the law of attraction is “like attracts like.”  According to the  American Marketing Association here is the definition of marketing.  “Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.”   Now just combine them to come up with definition “the use of process(es) of creating, communicating, delivering and exchange offerings that are value to those who think about what I think about by leveraging the power of the internet.”   Yeah, it’s that easy.  If you are an insurance agent and you are looking for those people interested in insurance, you would leverage the internet to reach those customers.  If you are in selling old socks, then you would leverage the internet to reach those folks.   Now on a side note, 97% of the population don’t have a clue how to do that…and here’s what’s so awesome. They can learn and change their lives. Just a hint!!!

[fancy_box id=2]Success in any field, any profession, or any thing is learned! Yes I said it. #EarlSaid [/fancy_box]photo-1422919869950-5fdedb27cde8

Now we’ve got the definitions down. Now let’s connect the other dots. How does all this work? It works very simply. Unlike the normal commercials you see on tv/print ads that tell you your life sucks without their products, law of attraction and internet marketing (attraction marketing) works by providing people valuable content on a particular subject.  Let’s take this blog post, I am breaking down this concept of law of attraction and marketing, so that others can finally get it and realize it’s so easy! If was promoting HerbalLife, (they do have some good stuff on weight loss/diet/general nutrition) then my blog posts would be about weight lose/diet/being healthy. If I was an insurance agent, my blog posts would focus on the personal benefits of insurance. If I was a bowling coach, I would talk about how to pick the 10-pin, or how to develop a strong mental game (yes, bowling is very mental. You would be amazed.) The goal is to show people how your product/service will benefit them before they buy. Yes, it’s a fine line… because our favorite car commercials fight to make us believe we will be so happy if we just drove their car.  Where are attraction marketing efforts strive to solve a problem before the client buys. A big difference. So, in my blog postsInstagram, etc, I am trying to help people before they ever agree to work with me or buy anything. A huge difference, because attraction marketing only wants you to buy because you’ve gotten value from something shared at no cost to the reader; once you’ve gotten value, then you buy/sign up/do a dance number etc….

photo-1444653614773-995cb1ef9efaSo who’s using this attraction marketing? Everyone who wants to find new customers, multi-level marketing, direct sales, real-estate agents, major companies, everyone is doing it! Why because it works!!! Would you rather tireless chase after potential customers, or would rather have them to find you, read a blog post, learn something, and get value… and agree to sign up on your email list etc; versus the alternative. Not to mention, this method of marketing is cheaper and more effective, because the potential customer qualifies themselves…not you! See when you combine law of attraction and internet marketing, the prospect comes to you because you are putting out yourself, content, and vibes out there.  You are driving traffic to your website so that people can find you. People are reading your stuff and connecting with you.  They agree to sign up to your email, blog, or products.  All you did was to put out the vibe, took action on a consistent basis and you made a sale. If you didn’t great. Maybe the reader will share your information with someone who wants to be a customer, either way – this type of marketing empowers the buyers.  If you still have doubts, then stop and realize you are reading my blog now. So it does it work!  And here’s what’s so cool about this. All you need to get started is a blogging system, an email       auto-responder,  and to shorten your learning curve a training program like Empower Network. Like I said, you can use this type of marketing to market anything you want – donations requests, swimming lessons, bowling lessons, your MLM products, your insurance products, anything.  Go to every major retail store’s website. There’s a link for a blog. There’s a place for you to put your email for their sales. As soon as you enter that email and hit send, you will receive an email from them. They will then email you frequently about their sales, articles, etc.  You and I can do the same. As a matter of fact, when you sign up for my blog – you will get an email from earl@earlljones.com… and then I will email you every time I write a new blog post, every time I find some thing of interest to share, or when something awesome is happening that can help you in your game! You can do the same, and it doesn’t matter if you are doing it part time or full time. The fact is you can do this! 

Now that we got that done, let’s wrap this up. Anyone can do this. I was just like “WTF” when I started this journey years ago. Pay Per Click, drivephoto-1429051781835-9f2c0a9df6e4 traffic, SEO, or SEPD, or whatever it was, sounded like a bad shopping experience. I was confused and just overwhelmed.  However,  I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, improve my sales career, and make sure that I can add value to those around me.  As result, I was attracted to this program with Empower Network. Empower Network program teaches more than just internet marketing. The program teaches success mindset, abundance mindset, and personal self-responsibility/discipline. Plus, I watched several of their leaders go from broke as hell, to 6/7 figures earners. I watched them…I signed up for their emails/blog posts. So I know it works.  Now Empower Network don’t promise/guarantee any income at all – the governments frown upon that. What they do promise, that you will get out of it what you put into yourself and the program.  I’ve tried 3 others and this is the best one. I’ve got 30 blog post, 230+ people on my email list, and I had 30 visitors to my website today. I also made my first sale on auto-pilot (another term and method.) I didn’t have those results with the other programs. And the Monday/Thursday training calls are just awesome (those are free to share with anyone.) So if you want to learn more, let me know. Just put your information in the box below labeled “Why are struggling to build a profitable blog...”  and let’s ride. You can run a marathon, ride 100 miles, snow board, ski, scuba dive, etc with proper training and equipment. You can do the same with attraction marketing and make a difference in the lives others and yourself!

You can always connect with me on Facebook Instagram Twitter / Pintrest (I hope I spelled that right.) Take care of yourself and continue to reach for the sun!

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.
