Online Education Is the Fastest Way To Learn New Skills

Online EducationOnline education can be broken down in two categories. Free and paid. Nowadays pretty much everything is available for free through search engines such as Google or Bing and video sites like Youtube or Vemeo.

We live in world of abundant knowledge available at our finger tips. The good thing about free knowledge and online education is that if you know what you’re looking for and where to look for it you can get the information right away.

The problem with this free online education method is, is if you don’t know what you’re looking for, you’ll never even think to look for it.

Hence why you could spend hours upon hours of watching and searching through mountains of information just to get that one specific gold nugget.

Now is when you’ve got to consider and factor in the value of your time. Is it worth more time to try to figure things out by yourself or is it smarter to ask someone to point you in the right direction?

The good thing about the paid online education is that often you have a problem and you seek more information by asking the questions to an expert either for advice or you have a membership to a site that offers complete courses via online education on specific topics.

By knowing exactly what you’re looking for or being sent on the right online education track, you can save a tremendous amount of your valuable time.

Online Education Continued

More than likely if you’re somewhat like me, where you want to have your business online and are trying to get things up and running, you need to know some basics in online lingo. Like HTML for example, you don’t need to know all of it by heart but it’s good to understand the basics of it.

A really good free online education site that I’ve used to learn all kinds of stuff related to the internet, like programming languages, CSS, etc is w3schools.com On this site, it offers you a section to learn and safe place to try new code without “breaking” your website so to speak.

Another awesome free online education location to ask questions is a site called StackOverflow.com. Basically you can read through previously asked questions, or search based on keywords or topics and see the best related answers. This site focuses on programming. They also have a dedicated section for WordPress alone, which is another good place to look for answers.

If you want to learn search engine optimization, SeoInPractice.com offers a great complete web based e-book that explains SEO. You can also check out my other videos in the SEO category if you want more information in an “easy to understand way”.

As for paid online education Lynda.com is one of my absolute best choices. They bring in experts on all kinds of software and they give online courses about the specific topic.

You can watch the whole thing from beginning to the end like an actual course, or you can jump in right in the section that you really are trying to figure out.

When I have a sticky point on how to do something specific about a software; I look for the answer on Google and Youtube first. Often, I find one method but sometimes I need something more specific.

So I go to my Lynda back office, I type the name of the software I want more info on, then BAM, I find what I’m looking for because of the expert advice.

Lynda.com is great place to learn intricacies about specific software or topic however when I want to get a marketing’s perspective on things, I go listen to successful marketers. Check out my article about “traditional education or specialized education to grow your business” for more information on this topic.

Now if you just want to learn other typical stuff you’d find in traditional schools like science, math, physics etc, but via free online education check out KhanAcademy.org. If you want to see all kinds of science lectures then FreeScienceOnline.blogspot.ca has a lot of them available or learn more about MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).

These are the tools and locations that I use on a daily basis to keep my skills sharp. What about you, where and how do you get your online education?

In the MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint I will cover what the 4 types of personalities that there are. If you’re not the right type then perhaps MLM is not the right wealth vehicle for you. If you’re not the right fit, there’s no point in continuing, you’ll only waste all your hard earn money on training, events, conventions, etc. It’s ok, it’s not for everyone but it’s better to find out now rather than later don’t you think?
MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint
If you’re the right type of person on the other hand, it is possible for everyone to who wants to be successful in MLM to achieve success. That being said, you’ll have to make a realistic plan over the next years. Within my presentation, I will tell you the exact amount of years that you should expect your plan to be followed.

Within your MLM journey, if you don’t have a road map to success you’ll be lost in the wild almost guaranteed. Over 90% of MLMers fail because they don’t have a bird’s eye view over the big picture, imagine seeing from above the full maze and the best part, someone who’s highlighted the way so you don’t have to go through the same pitfall, obstacles or dead end.

In MLM we’re only taught to talk to friends and family and ask them for favors by viewing our DVDs, our website, or try to drag them to a presentation which can be misinterpreted as desperation or neediness which is a bad business image. That’s like if I were to give you only 3 digits to a 10 digit phone number. Guess what, it’s not a complete number therefore there’s so much room for error.

Coming from a professional real estate background as a realtor, if I’d employed those strategies in my previous business, I would of failed miserably, no questions asked. You see, it’s not your fault if your struggling right now, you’ve just not received the full 10 digits phone number,  this is why I’ve created the MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint.

Here take a look a closer look at what you will learn. MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint Censored

Keep in mind that this was just a sample. But you can have access to the full unlocked and uncensored version presentation. I’ll get back to that in a minute.

Coming back to the sample, you’ve seen that there were multiple phases in business and within each phase, there were a series of steps that you have to be aware of in order to be successful. In the MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint, I cover the big picture and from there, you pick your strategy that works best for you based on your personality. It’s important for you to understand the options you’ve got and where they stand in the big picture. As you can see there’s a lot of information but it totally makes sense.

MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint

I wanted a simple way to explain business 101 but there was none hence why I’ve put that blueprint together to help out as many MLMers as possible. The reason is simple, I strongly believe that MLM is THE way for people to achieve their dreams, it’s the greatest tool that uses the power of leverage that is available out there that puts entrepreneurs in the driver seat with full control. I also know that if people are ill informed about the truth of the business, they will fail or lose money, then turn around and blame the industry. Which is pretty bad for our entire community of network marketers don’t you think?

In real estate I could easily charge $100 per hour for consulting, especially with something as valuable as this. But for a limited time only, because we’re in the same industry (network marketing) I want to educate as many like minded fellow network marketers to see the big picture free of charge.

Now the ball’s in your court, I’ve done my part to make it accessible, now all you have to do is take action. Enter your name and e-mail address in the form and when you confirm that this is you, I will send you a private link to my MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint.

Once you’re done watching it, come and reach out to me on my Facebook page, just like you, I’m a real person too. Come say: “hi”, ask questions, whatever, I’m very present on Facebook and check it pretty much daily.

So again, fill out the form below, enter your name and e-mail address, confirm that e-mail belongs to you (as I don’t want to spam anyone, I respect people’s privacy), go ahead and watch my MLM Secret Success Plan Blueprint and then finally come reach out to me on my Facebook Page so we can chat.

Never Buy Website Traffic For Your MLM Website Until You Read This!

Buy Website TrafficIt’s imperative that you don’t buy website traffic until you read through this! Yes, it’s that important.

If you’re anything like I was back then, this is probably where you are. You’ve just recently joined an mlm or network marketing opportunity, they give you give you access to a website that you can customize, enter your name, upload a picture and put your contact information.

The rest of the website is all done by the rest of the team and it’s a super fancy awesome looking website promoting you.

After signing up, you’re super excited about the MLM opportunity, you can taste your dreams become reality. All you’ve got to do is enroll your friends and family, then the money’s going to start pouring in overtime.

After all, if you recruit 2, that recruits 2, that recruits 2, down at the 7th level you’ll have 254 reps each sending you $30 in commissions from recurring sales month after month for a monthly total of $7,620 for years to come.

Maybe you’re a little shy or don’t have too much business background but you know that now you have a super awesome website and all you’ve got to do is send traffic to that website and the sales will come in. I know, I was kind of like that back in 2000.

A lot of us hear about how easy it is to just have everything done on autopilot without lifting a finger. The hard reality is that it’s not true at the beginning. You first have got to build a strong foundation in your business before you get to that level. If you can’t recruit someone in your business, you’re website will not either.

There’s no point to buy website traffic if your website doesn’t convert visitors into purchasers. If your website is just an “online brochure” so to speak, with no call to action, you’re just going to waste your hard earn money or even worse, you’ll stack it up on top of your current debt, might as well go to the casino your odds will probably be better.

If you want to buy website traffic you must first understand how internet marketing works and that is to build “YOU” brand. That’s right, you’ve got to brand yourself online before you promote your company. People will not join companies, they will join people. You’ve got to become a leader and inspire or help people. Without giving value you’re not going to be rewarded in return. That’s just how it is.

Buy Website Traffic Continued

At first (back in 2000) I thought my company site was giving value, but it’s not, sure it’s great at giving information and all but why would your lead, prospect, or paid website visitor join you when they can join any other reps from that mlm company?

Why should they follow you? What is it that you offer that’s different from all the other reps out there? In marketing we call that your “Unique Selling Proposition”.

Let me ask you, if you had to join under your company under yourself, would you do it? Or would you join under one of your super awesome upline? If you chose them over you, why is that? Could it be that they offer something pretty amazing, whether personally, charisma, leadership, etc?

To buy website traffic without branding yourself will only be a money pit if you don’t know what you’re doing. I hear it all the time when I ask this simple question: “What’s your marketing strategy to get more mlm leads once you’ve exhausted your friends and family’s list?”

They tell me they want to buy website traffic, either through Facebook Ads or through Pay Per Clicks. I’m dead serious, if you’ve never done that before, how can you expect a positive return on your investment? There’s nothing worse than to watch the advertising spending accumulate, yet having no conversions (no body buying your stuff).

Can buying website traffic increase your business? Yes, of course it can, but like I always say, it’s got to be done the right way. If you’re serious about getting into paid traffic, then I recommend you watch Michelle’s free Facebook training.

It’s about an hour long, so get your pen and paper handy to take some notes. I learned so much so I’m assuming it’ll just be as informative for you. She’ll explain to you in more details the #1 reason why 97% of new MLMers advertising on Facebook fail.

She’ll also show you how to get your ads approved and show you her action plan on how she personally sponsored 32 reps in 50 days.

After watching that, you’ll have a much better idea about what you’re getting into and only then, I’ll agree with you that it’s ok to buy website traffic because at that point, you’ll know how to handle the marketing side of things and most importantly, you won’t waste all your cash in ads and website that don’t convert.

What about you, before you go and buy website traffic, let me ask you that very same question, what is your action plan to generate some MLM leads? Share your thoughts.

Education To Grow Your Business – Traditional vs Specialized

Education To Grow Your BusinessEducation to grow your business is the smart way to go about it. Now should you go for traditional or specialized education?

There’s a saying that goes like this: “Ignorance costs money!”. I hope you have not been paying into the “Stupid Tax” lately.

How much is traditional education to get a college diploma or university degree?  From my understanding my friend paid $5,000 per semester to attend university.  My friend did 4 years at 2 semesters per year, which gives $40,000 to get their bachelors degree (that’s not including books, parking or other related expenses).  Now with all that education my friend can enter the work force and start working into their respective career of choice if their lucky and there’s an opportunity.

Now, let’s look at the price I used to pay for martial arts training.  It was roughly about $100 per month, times about 4 years to earn a black belt which is 48 months x $100, which is $4,800 to become competent and knowledgeable in that skill.  Perhaps the martial arts clubs around you are half that so let’s say $2,400 to cover your education.  Again, it’s about 4 years.

Here’s where I’m getting at, in the traditional education context, it’s kind of “normal” to hear about 4 year commitment and high tuition cost, yet students will find a way to pay for it regardless if they’re not a 100% sure if that’s what they want to do in life.  Some actually start from scratch in another program after they graduate because they were not happy with the first one or they simply had a change of interest.

Now, let’s look at us home base business owners.  A lot of us invested in an opportunity, so we have access to a wealth vehicle, it could be direct selling, network marketing, mlm, online store, etc.  That’s great; we have access to a service or product to sell.  Where the lack exists in small home base business’ mentality is the knowledge and education to grow your business in marketing and promotion.  Think about it, have you graduated in marketing or in advertising in school?

Business owners are very conservative or scared in investing in their own knowledge to market and promote their services or products using today’s platforms.  Such advertising platforms are: Google AdWords’ Pay Per Click, Microsoft AdCenters’ Pay Per Click, Youtube Video Marketing, Facebook Marketing, Twitter Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, etc.

Side Note! New business owners will blindly jump into advertising methods they do not know losing their hard earn money. Education to grow your business is important not to pay into the “stupid tax”.

New business owners will jump in any of those advertising methods, not knowing how to effectively market and they will end up losing money in overpriced cost per clicks, actions, etc.  The online gurus in the industry use this saying to describe the level of ignorance when it comes to online marketing amateurs: “Another beginner paying the stupid tax.”

So how do we prevent from falling under that total newbie mentality where ignorance costs money?  Instead of investing foolishly in advertising that we don’t fully understand, it is to educate ourselves on the matter.  What about doing our own research to figure out all that from scratch?  On the internet, everything’s available!  The problem is that everything’s available but scattered all over the place.

How do you sort what’s modern techniques vs old techniques, the internet is constantly evolving and changing.  Also, how do you know to look for something that you don’t even know that you don’t know?  How much time will it take you to put all that together? How much is your time worth trying to put all that together?  Is it really worth it?

Education To Grow Your Business Alternative Solution

Or, why not learn from the best online marketers who are successful at marketing and advertising online who put their own time, experience and education to grow your business in creating courses for beginners?

Think about it, Thomas Edison spent years of his life trying over 10,000 ways to make the light bulb work.  If you knew you could make money creating and selling your own light bulbs in that era, wouldn’t be worth it to invest $500-$1000 in your own knowledge, learning the one successful method directly from Thomas Edison himself?

The great thing about investing in your knowledge like that is, it’s like a shortcut or a fast track learning curve that will have direct impact on your business once you’ve implemented those new techniques.  And, the absolute best part is that it’s tax deductible because it’s a business expense.

Side Note! Investing less than $1,000 (tax deductible) in specialized education to grow your business makes perfect sense.

If you’re trying to get new recruits for your mlm business, you’re trying to sell more stuff online or you simply want to appear on the first page of Google, you must educate yourself to avoid paying into the “stupid tax”.  Student can squeeze and figure out a way to invest $40,000 over 4 years in an education that they may or may not like.

Here were talking about investing less than a $1,000, that is fully tax deductible, into specialized knowledge education to grow your business that will have a direct impact in your business growth that can be learned and implemented over the next couple weeks.

Here’s a link for a free online video training by one of my mentor (someone I’ve learned so much from) that will give you the 3 hottest places right now to generate leads for your business.  Any clicks there also help support the show.

Over there, he will also explain to you this formula to become financially free with your business which is: “AL + AS = PI” don’t miss out on that one.  It helped me out tremendously in my online business and it’s really good education to grow your business.

What about you, what online marketing method have you been using so far?

Social Media Marketing or PPC to Grow Your Business?

Social Media MarketingIt’s no surprise that social media marketing and pay per click turned out to be one of the hottest trends to promote your stuff online. So which one’s better, social media marketing or ppc?  Unlike pay per click advertising (PPC), social media marketing is kind of like putting your ad in a tv show except you have all the benefits of choosing your audience and most importantly tracking the results from your efforts.

Allow me to explain; in the pay per click format, you’re targeting your ads on what people type in the search engine and who are actively looking for solutions to a problem they currently have. This means that advertisers are competing for specific keywords which can increase the overall cost of the bids.

Example of a keyword or keyword phrase: “mlm” or “work from home”.  The problem is if you go to more specific key word phrase like: “I want to join a home business to work from home in mlm”.  Sure you’re bid on the keyword will be super small however there might be no clicks coming through because no traffic is searching for that specific search term.  You don’t want to be on standby for the 1 search per month.  It’ll take you forever, remember it’s a numbers game.

Social media marketing on the other hand, allows you to target specific audience based on interests. Example, let’s say it’s for me, if I want to find people for my network marketing opportunity, well, I know that I want to deal with people who “Likes” Jim Rohn or Anthony Robbins.  I know these people have similar interest as I do and are open minded to network marketing in the first place therefore we have more opportunity to connect and build a business relationship.

So basically, your ad will show up on their screen, in a non intrusive way, while “they” hang out on the social media sites. And if it’s the right time for them and your ad speaks to your audience, then they will click on it to get more information.  There is so much less competition this way because you can target any kind of special interests.

Another example would be to target anyone involved in personal growth, fitness or residual income, sky is the limit.  Think of names of successful leaders that advocate the same kind of thinking as your business and market to people who likes them.

Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing is great way to get more interested people to see your offer or your website when you come to think about it. Ok, so obviously prices will vary but let’s say you pay $0.10 per visitor to your website, that is someone who saw your ad who shares the same interests as you and they voluntary went to see your site for $0.10.

That means for every dollar spent, you get 10 people watching your presentation; which means for $100 you get 1000 “rejection free” visitors on your website watching your presentation.  Out of a 1000 views, what percentage will join you in your business?  It’s a numbers game, nothing personal, it’s just business.

The more people see your presentation, the more you up your chances of having a new recruit joining your team.  Let me ask you, when’s the last time you got even 15 people watching your online presentation?  How much time and effort did you put into getting those 15 people watching your online presentation?  Do you really think that facing all that rejection is a duplicatable process for someone who’s skin is not thick as yours?

Social media marketing is truly awesome and cannot be summarised in this article but if you want to get started and learn the tricks of the trade of social media marketing, then there’s an amazing 1 hour free information training, that I personally used to get started in my social media marketing efforts, that I recommend. In there you will learn the “how tos” essentially.

In summary, if you are a beginner, I think social media marketing offers you a more affordable solution to promote your business online whereas PPC you have to have your own unique website and have to be better at tracking, measuring, figuring out metrics, etc.

What about you, will you consider social media marketing or pay per click to grow your business? Which one do you prefer?
