Do you need leads and money? Potential business partners anyone?

Then I have a solution!

I’ll be discussing ViralUrl, the Internet’s best kept secret and Magnetic Sponsoring, a top affiliate program that converts insanely well.

As a gold member with ViralUrl, you can send 3000 emails every 3 days to Network and Internet Marketers or those wishing to learn more about making money from home. You do not have to provide the E-Mails. You send them directly to the ViralUrl community members, which is very sweet since it’s laser-targeted.

One key thing about marketing is simple: It’s called market discovery. If you know where people looking for a business or struggling networkers ‘go’ online, then you simply need to put what they are are looking for in front on them. It’s really that simple.

Now if you can put what they’re looking for in their inboxes, it’s impossible to not make money.
And there’s where
ViralUrl comes in. You’ll be able to send your offer to 3000 inboxes every 3 days, 100% legally and legit. You’ve probably heard the phrase “the money is in the list.” Well, ViralUrl has a fairly large list that you can tap into, in chunks by 3000.

But what exactly do you put in their e-mail boxes?

Ah, ha!

This is a million dollar question (and no this NOT a figure of speech).

I’ve always found that funded proposals work a lot better than anything else, period. And that’s where Magnetic Sponsoring comes in.

If you are not familiar with Magnetic Sponsoring, it’s a book you purchase for a small one-time fee of $37 that teaches you HOW to generate leads who will want to sign up with you.

You also get to become an affiliate of his free with lots of products you can sell and lots of capture pages. Also included is great Internet Marketing training in the back office (again, no monthly fees, only $37).

Now for my case study and “stats” (such a boring word I know, but learn to love it)…

Every time I send out 3000 E-Mails on ViralUrl promoting Magnetic Sponsoring, I generate, on average, 8.65 leads with an average opt-in rate of about 17%, a VERY good number.

On average, for every 34.6 leads I generate using this combination, someone purchases the Magnetic Sponsoring book and becomes a Magnetic Sponsoring affiliate. When this happens, I make $20.

So it takes me four blasts to get $20 and 34.6 leads, which equates to $5 in instant cash sales and 8.65 leads per blast.

Each ViralUrl account allows you to send 3000 emails EVERY 3 days, so you can send about 122 blasts a year.

Now I’m NOT perfect, and I probably use 85% of all my allotted blasts, so I do about 103 blasts a year per account.

Even at 103 blasts a year, you will see that per account, I generate roughly $515 dollars and 890.95 leads:

103 * $5 = $515


103 * 8.65 = 890.95 leads.

In other words…
are you REALLY ready for this?

For every ViralUrl account I have, I see on a yearly basis a 261% return on my investment (ROI)…
and 890.95 leads!

Now, I use 9 ViralUrl gold accounts, which will cost you a small $1793 a year or a meager $147.50 a month, one hell of an investment. That $1793, at the end of the year, turned into $4635 dollars and 8018.55 leads!

You will notice I only has 9 accounts that I use for this. However, this is scalable. You can always buy more ViralUrl gold accounts and generate more commissions and more money. And you can mix in different affiliate programs if you like. I love it!

By this way, this entire process takes me about 5 minutes every morning to do. It’s as simple as copy and pasting and pressing a button!

How You Too Can Do This
It’s quite simple actually, so check this out:

Step 1: (optional) Create a Gmail e-mail account at Gmail.

Step 2: Create an account at ViralUrl with the E-Mail address you created in Step 1. Fill out the form on the first page. On the second page, you will offered a one-time-offer to become a gold member for $197. Go ahead and complete that process.

Step 3: Check your E-Mail and confirm your account.

Step 4: Log into ViralUrl and watch the getting started videos.

Step 5: Decide what you’re going to promote. I highly recommend Magnetic Sponsoring unless you have your own informational product or bootcamp series.

It’s that easy! Get it done and contact me if you need help or some sample E-Mail copy I use.

A Review Of ViralURL.Com And Bonuses

So you have finally stepped into the world of making money online. You too, like the others, have decided to start with the affiliate programs. Also, you must have heard that it’s not a big deal to make good money with affiliate marketing, provided you choose the right programs and do some strategic planning while promoting your affiliate products. So far so good.

Whether you are promoting other people’s products or promoting your own products - that doesn’t matter because after all it is nothing but your own business and your means to earn good money.

So whichever be your case, I am sure you would not want to leave money on the table and invite others to steal your share of profit.

Even though the industry of affiliate marketing is pretty competitive but if you are cautious and are strategic in your marketing techniques then, it could be very profitable for you.

Take a close look at the industry, you will see that not every one who gets into affiliate marketing is successful. People who are doing well leave no room for failure and take all security measures and understand its importance.Yes!

Security is one of the key factors in affiliate marketing. If you do not adopt proper security measures, then your business will be at high risk. One of the most important way to restore security is to protect your affiliate links. Do not take them for granted. A bit of carelessness on your part in regards to affiliate links may cost you a lot of dollars.

Do you know the long complicated links that you send to your prospective customers not only look convoluted but they can create a lot of problems too! If you send such an affiliate link to your customers, then the smart ones will definitely figure out that you are promoting someone else’s product and they would rather visit the parent company. Also, if your link does not function then your customers have to type a really long URL into the browser, which will definitely put him or her off.

You could be a victim of even a worse situation. What if some devious Internet pirates steal your affiliate links and replace them with theirs. If they do that, then you get no commission at all.Did I scare you off with all of the above possibilities? Well, that certainly wasn’t my intention. I just wanted to open your eyes and state facts that actually happen in the world of Internet. It happened with me until I came across ViralURL , that brought a revolution to my online ventures.

So, if you are not getting the desired results out of your affiliate marketing,don’t lose hope. There’s definitely a remedy to this problem and that is

Do I hear you asking, what is it and how can it help in averting any adverse situation for an affiliate marketer like me?

Be patient and read on, if you love your business.ViralURL is a link cloaker that protects you in the truest sense. There may be many unethical people lurking around, who might play with your affiliate links by cutting them off or replacing them with their own etc. How much effort you put in towards building your business and advertising your business, if your links are tampered with, then all your hard work will be rendered useless.In order to avoid such a rip off, ViralURL gives you full protection and sees to it that your affiliate links never get exposed to others.

So save yourself from getting ripped. Get all the commissions to your account that you rightfully deserve. All this is made possible by

Here’s How To ‘Pimp Out’ Your Profile to Create a Magnetic Brand, Attract a Constant Flow of New Leads, and Avoid Looking Like a Total ‘Poser’…

Earlier this week, I sent out a great training piece on how to use forums and since then the activity on the Better Networker forum has picked up like crazy, and we are even getting noticed by top-tier marketers thanks to the awesome teaching and sharing that’s being done.
Videos, podcasts and articles are also being posted at an insane pace, (I’ll come back to these topics in a later newsletter).
But where many of you are dropping the ball is with your profiles.
What good does it do if you put together an awesome article, an entertaining video, a compelling forum post, and racked up 2,000 rewards points, if your profile is as bare as bones?
Understand that your profile is how you are going to create that personal connection with your prospect and brand yourself as an authority in their eyes. They are going to read whatever training you put together then want to learn more about you.
At that point, if all they see an a lame 1 paragraph “About Me” section, 1 fuzzy picture, ugly affiliate links for your websites and very few friends/connections… what are they going to think?
I’ll tell you what they are going to think, “Oh, this person is a poser. There’s not much going on here”.
First impressions are everything. You can’t screw this up.
Your Magnetic Profile Formula

So here’s what you should pay attention to when working on you profile:

Main Profile Pic – Use a professional, and cool looking picture for your profile. Remember, you are a business owner, a leader, and an example to follow – look like one!

I HIGHLY recommend you hop on Google and find a professional photographer in your area and get some excellent pictures taken. You will be judged by your picture more than anything else at first glance, and it will either send the right message, or the wrong message. There is no in between. It will be the best $200-$300 you’ve spent.

Gallery – Add at least 8 pictures of you doing various activities. These can show you in a variety of settings, which can include business, sports, parties, family pics, vacation pics, etc. You want to demonstrate what the lifestyle of a successful entrepreneur looks like.

About Me – Tell your story, be genuine, be honest but confident. Remember, there is only one of you, therefore no one can compete with you. Think of this as the sales letter, which is selling you as a friend, mentor and leader. Tell people about your pains, struggles and your victories.

Friends – Be social. If someone lands on your profile and sees that you have just a few friends, they’re going to think one of two things… Either this person isn’t very active on this site or in the industry… Or that you’re a newbie and you just don’t know anyone. Introduce yourself to people on this community, by sending them a private message and connecting with a friend request.
Be Mr. (Ms.) Popular!

Note: Everytime you send someone a message or write on their guest book, write it from scratch and address it directly to them. You want to give the impression that you actually read their profile. (duh!) I hate copy past messages and it’s obvious when you are doing this. People who copy and paste the same message to everyone, or sign guest books with using the same strategy are seen as lazy and opportunistic. Be GENUINE.

Groups – Join groups and show that you are active, but don’t join too many groups. You want to demonstrate that you are active in the community, but that you are selective about with whom you hang out with. The rule is simple… Only join a group if you actually plan to participate.

Status – update your status at the top of your profile with some cool blurbs. If you are writing some copy or updating your adwords campaign, mention it. You want to be both fun and active.

My Websites – I recommend that you don’t post naked affiliate links here. Whenever you post an affiliate link or a link to your replicated company page which looks like, the first thing people will think is “Oh, this person is a newbie. They don’t even have their own website or domain”. You CAN post affiliate links, but buy a real domain name had use a redirect to send people to the actual affiliate link. This is about “image”, and using naked affiliate links is an amateur move.

If you need help with this kind of thing, invest in courses like Magnetic Sponsoring and services like Instant M L M Profits (IMP). So you can learn how to setup your own lead capture page, email newsletters and unique domain (.com).

Magnetic Sponsoring is the 'how to' on lead generation and IMP takes care of setting up your marketing in less than an hour for only a buck! I highly recommend both of them if you need help generating leads.

My Content – be an active participant of this community. Your history of activity will be shown on your profile for everyone to see. Just setting up a profile and hoping someone finds it is not enough. Demonstrate that you have a lot to contribute, by having a history. Update your blog regularly with cool pieces of news or tips, be active on the forums, post more extensive training pieces as articles and so on.

Points – and of course, the more active you are, the more points you build up for yourself. Again, show a history of activity but post quality content. Don’t repurpose articles and claim them as your own.

Note: If you want to reference an outside article, post a link to it on your blog or in the forums and comment on why you think it’s important. Don't not post it under Articles. Do this enough times and you risk getting booted from

So that’s my quick overview on creating ‘magnetic profiles’. A few great example profiles you may want to look at, while creating yours are below…

All of these people are BN Admins or Moderators.

So to get started, head over to:

5 Keys to Drastically Improving The Results You Achieve From a Business Website

by Matt Inglot

In preparation for launching a whole kit for customers of my main business, I have been giving some serious thought to which strategies and ideas a company should be most interested in applying to its own website.

Taking into consideration effectiveness, ease-of-implementation, cost, and applicability for different industries, I’ve put together a first-draft sampling of five that I feel must be known by every business owner. None of them are a quick fix, and some may sound obvious, but none of them require you to be a tech wizard or an amazing artist.

1) Start a Newsletter
Pay attention to your mail box. Every week you probably receive a grocery store catalogue, bargain newsletter, or similiar information item. Stores, including international brands, continue to deliver these week after week because if done properly they work. However this is far from a perfect system. How many of the fliers in your mailbox are you actually interested in? How many do you simply throw out? Every single flier represents marketing dollars for the company, and quite a few are simply going in the trash.

By starting an e-mail newsletter that your visitors and customers can willfully subscribe to allows you to reach the people that want to listen to you, and to do so for only the cost of writing the newsletter copy. Forget about printing thousands of flier that are destined for the landfills. Your virtual newsletter has no printing costs and will keep your company and your latest offers in the minds of your most interested customers. Just don’t overdo it and keep your newsletter opt-in. The last thing you want to be associated with is spam!

2) Share Your Knowledge With Your Audience
The internet has made major differences in the way customers shop and the options they have. One such key difference is information. With virtually everyone in your market having online access, obtaining detailed and impartial information on a product or service is easier than ever. Rather than trying to mask this information with marketing hype, why not turn your website into an educational resource? You’ll have potential customers using your site to learn more about the product, get excited about it, and when its time to purchase they’ll come to you, the expert!

It’s about more than just a really extended sales ad though. Having real educational pages is something search engines go nuts about - they love content. This is why blogs do so well in search engine rankings - they are content-oriented. This is the kind of optimization that you can’t buy. Go ahead and inform your visitors. You’re adding value to the site, the product, and you get to share your passion for what you do!

3) Say it Clearly and Concisely
I have a lot of personal emotion invested into this point because I’ve made this mistake multiple times and paid dearly for it. There’s nothing worst than painstakingly writing the most awesome copy ever and finding that it’s totally bombing. Well there is worst actually - writing that copy, not measuring it’s success (see point 5), and using it even though it’s a flop. I’ve done this too and received miserable results.

Writing for the net is part science and part art. First you have to entice the visitor in whatever microperiod of time studies today are showing you have their attention for. If you fail at this crucial first point then the rest of your site really doesn’t matter. Achieving it takes patience, testing, and viewing the site from the perspective of a visitor. Nice clear headlines (preferably written using proper HTML header tags for crucial search engine categorization) often draw the reader in. Like with most aspects of websites, not everything works the same for everyone. Spend some time reading about the basics, but then practice, experiment, and of course measure.

Avoid massive paragraphs, particularly on your front page. As wonderful as your writing abilities are, people want to know in words (not paragaphs) what you are offering and why they shouldn’t close their browser window. Sell them on that first and leave the long-winded explanations to the product details pages where the people interested in them can find them. Use bullets and images to help space things out and prevent the visitor from being overwhelmed. Creating your front page is a lot like writing your resume actually - you want to get the key points out there, be brief, and don’t clutter the page.

To make things confusing, writing effectively doesn’t always mean keeping it short. You can provide informative content that users want to read and still have a lot of it. It’s all about presenting that information when the visitor is ready for it and that means knowing your audience and testing your copy.

4) Invest in Online Marketing - In the Right Places
Having a website is meaningless without traffic. If you are a brick and mortar business then you may be promoting the site to customers in-store already, but what about bringing in new customer? If you are an online company then your website is your source of business. Either way there are many ways to promote online and almost as many ways to waste marketing dollars for low return.
This is where putting some serious systematic thought and action into online marketing can have overpowering results. Every single website is unique so different people will have drastically different results from different online advertising. As always the key is to try a bunch on a low scale and home in on the ones that work and generate targetted traffic. Not to leave you starting from scratch here are just some of the options out there.

Advertising on a specific highly relevant website.

Becoming known as a trusted expert in a forum community.

Blogging about your subject matter.

Encouraging visitors to add your site to their favorite social bookmarking service.

Getting listed in local website or subject matter directories.

Joining a context-driven advertising program like Adwords.

Offering an RSS feed.

Posting some free product or service (opens up entire new traffic sources).

Releasing a press release.

Requesting links from well-known websites on your subject.

Selling goods on an auction or marketplace site.

Some of the above are easy to test, and some are not. No doubt many will fail for your particular business, but the few that succeed can be a goldmine. In all cases do not ever spam or otherwise break the Terms of Service of whatever resource you plan to utilize. Be creative too - every type of site has its own special advertising gem waiting to be found.

5) Always Test Changes
Getting it right the first time is highly unlikely. Whenever you add a new page, feature, or write some crucial sales copy, always test test test. Without actual test data all you have to go on is speculation. Does the headline that emphasises the quality of your service do the best, or the one discussing your unique expertise? Seemingly small changes can have huge impacts, particularly on the parts of the page that decide whether your visitor will keep reading. See the
F-Pattern for Reading Web Content for an excellent study on how visitors read information on the web.

Testing is easier said than done of course, as you need a way to track the test. To be accurate the two test conditions should really be conducted and measured simulateneously. One way of doing this is an A/B split test where half your visitors have one version of your site presented to them, and the other half are given another. You then measure the performance of each page in terms of what you are trying to achieve, such as more sales, more downloads, or more sign-ups to your service. A small change can make a drastic difference. The ads on this site are a great example and as I strive to optimize the results while maximizing the usability of the site you may notice different ad positions and types over different periods of time.

How do you perform such testing? It depends how you run your site. If you have it professionally managed for you by a company such as Tilted Pixel then it’s just a matter of asking for the functionality. An experienced website provider should be able to supply the functionality at a reasonable charge.

If you manage your website yourself or have knowledge of a web programming language you could always aim to write a solution yourself. For a programmer a basic A/B setup is quite easy to write. There are also third-party statistics packages which offer various metrics for performing such tests. My understanding is that the free Google Analytics package does just that.

Every Magnetic Leader Has READ THIS

By David Schwind

If you haven't read this, you should be ASHAMED of yourself.

I'm serious, you should know this... and if you don't, it's ok... you can redeem yourself by reading this entire article...

So last week... I was at a Texas airport, drinking my Mocha, getting ready to fly back to California, when I purchased a small book before boarding my plane called "Minute Motivators For Leaders".

Now the information wasn't really anything new, but it was fun and inspiring. It did however, remind me of something I know to be true from psychological studies...

There are 3 Major ways to motivate people... 2 of which, I've already talked about in previous articles which were "flattery" and "inspiration". I've talked about ways to implement those methods in your ads for maximum response.

The third one is a bit different though, but VERY facinating, and VERY powerful.

It should not be taken lightly... and that's "guilt".

Primarily guilt by association... or lack there of.
Let me explain...

(This is what every Magnetic Leader knows or has read...)
"Every one of us wants to work with and learn from the best."

And there is some "extended- truth" to that statement... Everyone, including you, also wants to be "associated" with the best.

That's what put you RIGHT HERE reading these very words! ...Whether you realize it or not.

But it's true...

We ALL want to belong, even you and me. We all want to be apart of the "insiders circle". We want to learn, know and "do" as the leaders do. And most of all... we want to be recognized as a part of it.

This recognition will stem from our "association", which is where we sub-consiously know our recognition is going to be awarded.

So in essence, our association is where our motivation lies. All people want to be associated with the "supreme" of their industry.

It's instictive.

Now the funny thing is it's this "instinctiveness" that compelled you to click on this article, and it's the "guilt factor" that caused you to begin reading it.

But the funnier thing is how I did it.

I simply removed "you" from the "insiders circle". I removed you from the "group of leaders". Not litterally, but with my title, I removed your "association" and you sub-consiously didn't like it!

You needed to "re-engage."
To simplify... I used "guilt and association" to force you into reading this article. And it was for a good cause... as to teach you... I have to demonstrate first hand.
I hope you're not mad. ;)

Let me show you exactly what I mean... and why this worked on you...

1.) The title contains a blatant embedded command designed to catch the "searching eye"... "READ THIS". See it at the end of the title? It's even SHOUTING in all CAPS! But it still appears subtle.

2.) "Every Magnetic Leader Has READ THIS". - This implies that "magnetic leaders" know something you may not, and if you belong to their group, then you MUST READ it too! It also might make you "uncomfortable" feeling possibly 'out of the loop' if you consider yourself to be a 'magnetic leader'.

See how I sparked your animosity? Neat ay?
So when writing your ads, remember association and/or guilt can be VERY POWERFUL motivators to get prospects attension!

After all... it worked on YOU! ;)
Just be sure to use it in a positive context ...or you will be banned from the "circle of leaders". ;)
Well, I hope you found this article delightful, that's it for today!

Think up some ways to use "guilt/associatoin" in your own ads and go spin some heads!
Goodluck! :)
Now read and learn from some of the responses to this post:

Great Work!
Hey,nicely done.
I have experienced first hand that guilt association as a matter of empowering people to take action is more powerful then to just motivate.

I have realized like two years ago that motivating people is great, but some just dont get it.That is why I make fun of it now and I tell everyone that I do not motivate people. I irritate them - in a sense of a guilt association.

figured that if I just "motivate people" they all get hyped up, are ready to tear their business apart and at the end nothing was done.

When I "irritate" them with guilt - you see how that bothers them. And believe me they either fix it ASAP.

Anyway, it's nice to see good thinking leaders in this community.

All the best,
Brett ;)

You hit right smack on target!
I have this constant burning question on my mind: "How do i motivate my downlines to do what I am doing?" I have been asking them about their goals and objectives and to plan around that.

I will use your suggestion and up a notch in my approach. Thanks!


Use these same technics to write headlines for your advertising and you will see amazing results.

How To Dominate Any Social Community Forum, Gain Tons of Raving Fans, and Produce A Consistent Flood Of Free Traffic to Your Site

So a couple of weeks ago, I talked to you about the incredible opportunity to learn the most cutting edge web 2.0 strategies from our crack team of experts, so you can learn to generate 10-20 leads per day and establish yourself as an industry leader on Better Networker.

Well, the good news is that the time is here, so warm up the printer, grab a snack, print this sucker and get your highlighter out. You're guaranteed a REAL education...

Now, the only problem we had was trying to decide what we should teach you first.

There are SOOO many opportunities available to drive free traffic to your website on Better Networker, I was literally tripping over myself coming up with a starting point.
But then I remembered back to when I got started with this community and I got to thinking about what made the most difference in our profitability and branding, and then the choice was obvious...

Getting Instant 'Street Cred' and Traffic

When you think about, where else do you have an opportunity to interact and get advice from the top trainers in our industry?

Where else can you can you gain instant credibility by engaging a Todd Falcone, Rod Nichols or Mike Dillard in an exchange of ideas?

And where else can you tap into the 17,000 members in this community and expose your opportunity to thousands?

Quite honestly, my biggest break in the Web 2.0 world came from a single forum post on this community, which resulted in a flood of leads and some of the most powerful (and profitable) partnerships and JVs in the history of network marketing.

In fact, the reason I’ve been asked to lead you down this Web 2.0 rabbit hole is because you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who can do this better than me.

Not that I’m boasting or anything… (OK, maybe a little.) ;)
But seriously, if you want to learn forum marketing, you don’t need to take out your wallet to pay some guru for a generic and outdated course.
Your primer is all right here for you… let’s get going.

Log on to:
... or visit me there at

Uncovering the Built-in Traffic on the BN Forums

Let's begin by starting a new topic on the forum. Make sure that it relates to an interesting topic or piece of industry news. You may even want to use this new topic to begin an open discussion about an article, video, blog post or podcast you recently wrote.

Notice I said “you recently wrote”. If you spent time putting together something you put thought into creating, people would love to hear about it and give you some feedback.

And if you want to share and comment on a great article you just finished reading (from a community member or from an external source), the forum is a great place to begin a discussion, engage others and draw a steady flow of people towards your capture page.

When you post on an advanced or compelling topic, and can get a multi-millionaire to take part in a discussion, you’ll not only gain the benefit of their teaching, it also means that something YOU started was important enough for a Todd Falcone or Mike Dillard to respond to. That's HUGE!

When this starts happening, your alpha leader status on the community will immediately skyrocket and you’ll have people seeking out you out and wanting your mentorship -- guaranteed.

Also, don’t be afraid to cross-promote your articles, videos and podcasts on the forum as long as it’s bringing value to the community.


We’ve given FULL MODERATOR rights to a handful of trusted leaders within the forum and
any abuse will immediately get flagged by them, deleted and your membership on BN could possibly get suspended. (Don't mess with me on this one. I mean it!)

Rule of thumb with anything is always ‘add value’ and you’ll be fine.

How to 'Hijack' Active Forum Threads and 'Siphon' Traffic

One of the BIG opportunities you have to bring tons of traffic and leads to yourself is by contributing to an ongoing conversation with a good number of participants. You gotta realize that everyone who has replied to that thread will get a notification in their email inbox as soon as you post to that forum thread.

So literally with a post that took you less than a minute to write, you can have a flood of returning readers come check out what you had to add, on that particular topic.

But be careful with this tactic. If you are just posting, to post and not adding real value, you could be driving your alpha leader status straight into the ground and discouraging people on that thread from returning.

Most of the people who’ve posted on that thread have chosen to receive a notification via email when there is a new post to that thread. The more valuable any new content on that thread is, the more likely those readers will come back to read what’s new and the more likely others will join the participation in that thread.

From that point on, at any time in the future, you may come back to that thread and attract a small flood of readers to any comment, or article which is relevant to that thread. Make sure that anything you contribute is adding to the discussion.

If you are an active forum participant, you’ll be able to build up some valuable “real-estate” of forum threads, which you can then use to drive up your readership by a few dozen to hundred people per day to any new valuable piece of content you’ve produced. All this of course can lead to some big traffic...

The Only Time It's Totally Cool to Blatantly Pitch Your Biz

And of course, what would readership be without being able to lead those people to your website or capture page so you can generate leads for your business opportunity

Within the forum, you’ll be able to configure a custom “signature” box, which will be displayed under every single forum post you make. This signature can be anything, including a blatant promo for your business opportunity.

This is totally cool, as long as you keep any promos within the signature. I’ve seen people promoting their favorite presidential candidate or even a favorite quote. It’s all fair game, (short of anything that may be offensive).

What will boost your results even more is if you incorporate some compelling copywriting strategies. Writing a good signature ad, is a lot like writing a good Google Adwords ad.
You always want to convey to people “what’s in it for them” and creating curiosity.

So after you’ve created value for people on the forum, attracted other leaders into a discussion, people will definitely want to know who you are and what you are working on. The signature provides them an opportunity to visit your website and become a lead.

To setup your signature on the forum, log on to Better Networker and go to the Forum tab.

Click on 'User Control Panel'. Go to 'Profile' ==> Edit Signature

Click on the 'BBCode' link for instructions on formatting your signature.

And above all else, use the opportunity you have on the forum to learn from your peers, help each other, network and promote a real sense of community.

You want to make sure that the Better Networker Forum is viewed as a safe place where people can come to get help from honest and genuine folks. There are so many posers and scammers out there, your contribution to this community could really make the difference in someone else’s life who is struggling to make sense of all the noise on the internet. Not to mention that the more quality posts you make, the bigger the flow of people roaming the forums who will see your signature and click over to your website.

So logon to Better Networker and start building your forum real estate empire:

I'll be back soon with more cool stuff. Laters,

How do the Wealthy Get that Way?

The Secret Knowledge Of The Wealthy

I still have that MLM downline and even though I haven't actively worked with them since 2000, I still get a very healthy annual income from the effort I put into building the organization. Now, that's true residual income!

I achieved this success by figuring out how to not only overcome the common objections you get when you present your MLM business, but how to prevent them from coming up in the first place!

The only problem was, I could do it but it wasn't that easy to teach my downline to do it.

One day I had a new distributor join my organization named Donna. Donna and I sat down and did a Goals planning session. Donna told me that her dream was to buy back the family farm that her mother had lost due to financial troubles. The farm had been in the family for six generations and her mother just felt terrible that she had lost it. Donna's goal was to get the farm back.

This goal really touched my heart and I was determined to work aggressively with Donna and help her reach her goal. But two days later, it was as though Donna just came up missing. She wasn't returning my calls. I couldn't reach her. It stung me, it hurt really, really bad that she was now ignoring me.

I realized that what was happening to me was also happening to others. You know, you will be telling somebody about your company and it's in a trillion dollar industry and you've got exclusive products that nobody else has . . . . but you look at the person and it's as though you're speaking a foreign language - nothing connects.

And you think, "They don't get it. What's wrong? What didn't I say right?"

Well, through thousands and thousands of one-on-ones, I discovered that people go through certain phases and it's always the same. They have to become aware of a subject before they can become educated in a subject before they can take responsibility for the subject.

So, it always goes - awareness, education and then to responsibility.

The reason that someone cannot hear the information that you're saying often times is because they're not educated to even know what to listen for.

You see, the biggest challenge is this - the prospects that you're talking to, if they could be wealthy, they already would be.

Are you missing the secret knowledge of the wealthy?

"USA Today" ran a survey called "How do the Wealthy Get that Way?".

What do you think the number one answer was? Would you believe that the number one way people thought you could become wealthy was to win the lottery? Number two was to inherit it.

Hard work didn't even make the list! That's the problem! When anyone puts the responsibility for their income outside of themselves, then they've lost the control.

Give your MLM prospect the ability to know that they can control their income. Wealth is not a mystery. It's a formula and this presentation explains that formula, without mentioning network marketing.

Help your prospect to understand from the very beginning that if they choose to own their own business as a way to wealth, they must invest in their business because when you're in business you've got to make yourself known.

Anyone who comes into your business and is unwilling to invest in products, advertising, buying leads, etc. - why, you did yourself no good by sponsoring them.

If you're a new distributor, you've probably been told to make a list of 200 people you know and call them up and tell them how excited you are about your product and/or your company. I don't know of a faster way to failure.

Your excitement alone is not usually enough.

You've got to know what to say and how to handle the objections that come up.

You're brand new. You don't know these things yet and statistically, only 3% to 5% of new distributors can handle the repeated rejection and failure and give up before getting through the learning curve.

There is a solution to this and that solution is tools and mentors. Tools sort through the objections that a new distributor encounters when starting their business and attracts people looking to generate additional income.

Mentors have oversome common obsticales and more importantly, have helped other distributors overcome obsticals and can provide a proven road map to success.

Follow in someone’s footsteps and DO what they have done and you will HAVE what they have. So people need to understand that this is true even if they are not aware of it. Just like the saying, ‘’You are what you eat”, you are also what you read, think and associate with.

Associate with wealthy people and do what they do, read what they read and think how they think and soon you will have what they have. It’s as simple as that.

5 Tips For Staying Razor Sharp When Starting Your Home Business Enterprise

Starting Your Home Business Enterprise The Right Way

So, you've decided to start a home-based business? Good for you!

You've just joined the ranks of 79 million North Americans who are expected to start their own home based business in the next 3 to 5 years according to Forbes Magazine.

You may be juggling a full time job, a part time job and family life. You know that there are many things you need to do in order to successfully start your business and work from home.

Don't let anyone fool you into thinking its going to be easy. It can be simple but it won't be easy. If it were easy everyone would be rich working from home.How are you going to fit your business project into your daily commitments?

It's easy to become overwhelmed and lose focus. Losing focus will cause you to take no action. Action is essential to moving on from where you are now, to where you want to go.

Here are 5 critical tips for staying focused and razor sharp when starting your home business enterprise...

1. Break It Down:
If you have a large task to tackle, it is always easier when you break it down into smaller components. You'll find it easier to focus because you won't feel as overwhelmed.

For example, 'Register a business name' can be broken down into: 'Think of five business name ideas', 'Find out how to register a business name', 'Get registration form' and so on.

2. Keep A 'To Do' List:
Once you've broken down major tasks into smaller ones, make and keep a 'to do' list. Always keep a note pad and pen with you so that you can jot down any new ideas as they arise.

3. Schedule Your Time:
Every evening, decide on three to five tasks on your 'to do' list that you wish to accomplish the following day. Stay focused on these tasks and only move on to the next tasks on your list once these have been completed.

4. Set Goals:
This is critical. There is nothing that will keep you more focused than setting goals and writing out your goals. Visualize exactly where you want to be in a month, six months and a year. In a month's time, do you want to have registered a business name and have a fully functional home office set up?

In three months time, how many clients or team members do you want? How much revenue do you want to generate in a six month's time?

5. Say No:
Be assertive and carve out more time for your home business. Saying ‘no' to that extra demand by your boss every once in a while can get you home one hour earlier a couple of days a week.

How about cutting back on the amount of housework that you do? How about watching less TV? Thats a BIG time zapper. Imagine how you could channel that extra time into your home business enterprise...

If you put these 5 tips into practice, you'll definitely find it easier to focus and stay razor sharp so you can achieve your ultimate goal of working from home and putting more LifeStyle back in your life.

P.S. Pay particular attention to Tip # 3 above. As a Home Business Owner and Entrepreneur, once you gain control of your time you will eventually have all the time you will ever need...
