9 Super Lessons from Billionaires for Home Business Entrepreneurs and Internet Marketers to Super Charge your Business!
So who do we know? See lessons from billionaires means we know some right? Of course we do, the internet is full of highly successful people happy to share their lessons, strategies, wisdom etc. The lessons we learn from them can be priceless for the entrepreneur and internet marketer.
Warren Buffet is one of the wealthiest men alive. But he wasn’t born with a silver spoon. He started with very little and EARNED his way to the top. We all have read about a billionaire or 2 like this, question is have we learnt any lessons from billionaires at all? Whether by attending a mastermind, being mentored by one. Watching videos, listening to audios, or reading their books?
There’s a decision that they made early on that helped them to get to where they are today. See Warren Buffet, Sir Richard Branson, Lord Sugar, Simon Cowell etc. these guys are all just like you and I
Warren Buffet realized that in order for him to make good decisions, he had to focus on just a few companies. Many billionaires share this same lesson, that….
It would be impossible to make smart investments in 100′s of companies, he thought. So…
He picked 10, of the safest investments at the time and still so today. He invested HEAVILY in them…
He has achieved extraordinary wealth as a result. Then and true today, many were and are trying to invest in everything under the sun and going bust. Here is a prime example of Less is More.
Yet we hear some one say..10 investments that’s too much…lol!
Today, there’s a million and one ways to make an income online. But we know you have a vision and advise you to focus on the lessons from billionaires we are about to share today!
Lot’s of methods, systems, niches, and so forth that can keep you running in circles the rest of your life trying to figure the “”best”” one to go with. Instead of doing that, which is not only unprofitable, but also highly stressful…
Do like Mr. Buffet here and invest heavily in multiple streams of income, maybe 2… that cool?
The ones with the highest probability of success. And what is that you say?
Well, I can’t speak for you, but for many, it’s just too risky to try to do things all by yourself. To try to create from scratch isn’t very easy.
It’s not likely you’ll just pick up an e-book or course and make a ton of money from it either. Those all aren’t the safest bets for most today. However…
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #1: Decide on a Proven System or Create one!
You could research and decide on a proven system, one that gives you a coach, one that’s got a track record of making partners a residual income and for some even millions. And makes it possible for the little guy -and everyone in between- to succeed massively…
Now you’ve got something to invest your time and energies to. That exact system can be found right here:
This is the first step in leveraging your way into a very lucrative system that will get you generating your first MLM leads, make sales and grow your primary business too. VERY lucrative. If this year hasn’t panned out as you expected, You owe it to yourself to Try something new and hit the ground running in the new year!
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #2: Treat your customers, staff or team members well. You will have great retention. We have heard that one of the industry best known billionaires Mark Cuban renovated the Dallas Mavericks out dated locker room and got a private extra-spacious jet for his players. Right now today, how about you get your team something small, and keep doing. Ray Higdon sends his students some real awesome mementos. One of our mentors Always sends us birthday and seasonal cards. Its super awesome when we get them!
Depending on how deep your pocket and generosity is, you could have team or customer loyalty on tap! By following these lessons from billionaires, or you could also learn the secrets of MLM experts so you can follow in their footsteps or duplicate their actions!
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #3: Your Daily Personal activities. Seems wrong when you see many people blogging daily, posting on social media but clearly not progressing. The question is in your mindset AND activities. Are you focusing on your MMAs – Money Making Activities your High Value Tasks or just being busy! By the way if you missed our earlier post on Narrowing your Focus we dealt with this malaise, so read it here now!
As a solo-preneur you need to accept that you will always be enrolling, until! So focus your energies and daily activity on those strategies that produce the results you desire. We have created and use a funnel that brings in at least 8-10 new leads per day…yet we also reach out and connect with the same number on social media per day as well…and marinate that relationship till its sweet and soft! Can you do that? We aren’t done until we’ve made those connections, and continue to work through the numbers. Its a sorting and sieving numbers game which increases our odds for success.
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #4: Be Caring and Genuine. Be human. Show your softer side it’s not a weakness. Even big men do cry, right! Its thus wise to show your vulnerable side. Even the challenges you have gone or go through sometimes so others may relate to you and the lessons you propound! Heck you want to be macho type…we get it! But consider your prospects and new team members who definitely look up to you…to get the best from them. Show them your very human side, express yourself. Be dramatic sometimes, without causing drama if you get our drift! However uncomfortable it may feel to begin with, it is an awesome business strategy that Sir Richard Branson has perfected. J.K. Rowling advises that we need to be kind to those around us regardless of who they are. See you never know who may decide to join your team, and be your power hitter. And who do you wish to learn your lessons from? In our case definitely billionaires thank you very much!
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #5: Build Relationships – Make Friends. One of our mentors on social media etiquette; Jessica Higdon emphasizes that your aim online is to make as many friends as possible. Build relationships and rapport. The idea is not to sell to them but to make a friend. Later the business side will flow naturally. You are sorting and sieving. This advice from Jessica confirmed by Tanya Aliza has made a huge impact on how we connect with people on social media and how we promote our business online.
We all know what Zig Ziglar taught, in fact most of us keep regurgitating it…Do we walk the talk? That…anyone could be successful in network marketing if you help more people get what they want or become successful!
So how about we purpose to reach out and make some new friends instead of looking for “$$$ signs” on social media? We can later help them to successfully step on the business ladder. For once lets put aside our personal desires and serve our network of friends. The more friends we make and serve, the greater our success in the home business front. What awesome lessons from billionaires and mentors!
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #6: Know Your Odds! Are you willing to work smart and find others who have the same work ethos. To what degree are you willing to do this? How many No’s are you willing to take. How many cards will you flip before you either break through and find your aces…those are your odds! The thing is you will never know what those odds are until you hit your own Jackpot…! Are you willing to take that chance? The super successful billionaires do this every blessed day. Work through your numbers, keep flipping those cards and you will learn what your odds are sooner rather than later.
Its another of the prices we pay to get to our desired destination! That means that you must pay the price for freedom. Keep improving your chances through training, self development, learning and TEACHING OTHERS. And this brings us to….
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #7: Pay The Price…Hmm they’ve gone crazy! Nope Have you heard the saying:
“To whom much is given much will be required!” Luke 12:28 Scripture
Well that then follows that for every fortune a price is paid. Whatever that price is to you, you will find it out sooner or later! This is one of the lessons from billionaires that most neo-entrepreneurs still do not understand and also avoid…Leading to quitting! Very few wish to pay the right of passage from average to great! Most look for freebies and giveaways…Which are great. But what price are you paying to get to your desired destination?
Most people find the price when they meet these 4 dream stealers:
- Deception – Of the people who see your presentation many say I like it, and will get back to you. Then a big majority start to avoid your calls!
- Rejection – You invite your “hot market” 48 family & friends for a presentation and 30 of them say Nope!
- Apathy – You present to a room full of 50+ people at a product party and 33 of them say…Not interested…arrrrg AND
- Attrition – you get 5 customers or team members and 3 drop out/quit
If you are a home business entrepreneur or network/affiliate marketer and you haven’t yet met the above tax-men you are not building hard enough!
Anyone read Mark Yarnell’s story? You can relate!
Then you will also understand one of the biggest lessons from billionaires. Which is “Work through the numbers!” The emphasis here is on the words “WORK” and “NUMBERS.” What you lack in skills make up in numbers…i.e. the number of people you show your business presentation! We have said before business is a numbers game and Pauli Kalungi will swear as a mathematician that numbers never lie. Pick your income goal and then get into beast-mode aka massive targeted action.
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #8: Delete Excuses. Billionaires and top earners in any industry have one thing in common and that’s; they make no excuses whatsoever for their results, and actions. And they don’t really tolerate excuses either. Neither do they make excuses when things don’t go right aka failures or lessons. Taking full responsibility for their lives is one of the lessons from billionaires that we gotta embrace if we are to join the 1% of this planet. Sir Richard Branson has been known to say when an opportunity you cannot resist presents itself jump in with both feet and learn on the job. AND take full responsibility for your success or lack of thereof. Lord Alan Sugar always tells his Apprentices on the TV show The Apprentice, to take personal responsibility for their results. In other words one of the lessons from billionaires we are to digest is that to be successful one has to embrace being a member of “Team No Excuses!” In the process you will attract like minded people or employ those who trust that you will guide them right and never lay blame at their door.
LESSONS FROM BILLIONAIRES #9: Take Your Personal Success as A Given And Step up.
Its very easy to listen to all the noise online and let people like your upline, downlines, team members, coach, aunt May and everyone else who has an opinion on what you do, determine your Success by what they say about you. “Your Power Echoes” did a podcast on “ why do we say this, because as Andrew Carnegie said, “The world is watching”
This is so much more clear in this internet and big brother age! Everyone is waiting to see WHAT YOU DO. So why not produce your results and make it your business to deliver. Assume the sale every time, success follows those that believe they already have it!
So its important to learn this as one of the lessons from billionaires: Instead of letting everyone affect you and determine your results and success, DO it for YOU! Know exactly what success means for you and declare it every blessed day, then go get it.
So we’ve established via lessons from billionaires that; there is no such thing as luck in this industry. Winning big is a matter of being willing to pay the price. Are you? Your future is in your hands! The choices which you make today will determine the course of your entire future.

Prospecting Tips not as you know them. The Mistakes you Must Avoid – Lesson 1 – Podcast & Scope 🙂
Gee Julie I have a prospect with me now, If you get him to join, I will join you…Lol! Said Prakash, a fellow entrepreneur! WHAT, sorry but I am pretty busy at the moment! I answered? BUT I am going to give you a quick lesson. Some prospecting tips, by sharing the prospecting mistakes we’ve made, nothing held back?
Prakash is a “Passive income, I don’t want to recruit people type.” He has been playing this game for a while….The “I will buy/join when I get some of my own customers ready to buy with/from me first….A load of Hogwash if you ask us!
Why share these mistakes? Because we see so many doing the same today and it makes us pretty sad. Allow us to let you in on the multitude of prospecting mistakes we’ve made that killed many a sale and how we’ve overcame them! We wont just delve into the mistakes but also some super Prospecting Tips so you can get to your desired results faster! Closing more of your leads and make more sales!
Did you know that:
“Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” – Henry Kissinger
Yet most new network marketers, home based business entrepreneurs and small business owners give their power away completely to the potential customer or prospect. By the way they behave and the things they say. Today Paul and I are determined to help you take your power back By obliterating these prospecting mistakes and how to posture your self better today.
If you are stretched and wanna grab your prospecting tips on the run then listen to the Audio below but make sure you come back to this post for the meat and potatoes!
#1 Create a Collaboration Group akin to BNI or Leverage Non Competing Businesses:
We recently learnt this from a network marketing colleague Stephanie Irwine thank you! Join your Local BNI or create a network of collaborating non competing entrepreneurs and exchange not just leads but Real Business contacts and sales!
We attended one of the many local BNI chapters aptly named ! It is an absolutely amazing way to generate more leads and make real sales fast! Esp if you have services outside of Internet marketing like we do. This is a prospecting tip par excellence! At any given time you have buy now collected a plethora of entrepreneurs in different sectors. Including prospects who may not be buying immediately! Whoever you’re showing your business has dozens of other services and products being sold to or shared with them. E.g you are a motivational speaker promoting to a corporate CFO, an events planner sharing with a Hospitality Manager. Lawyer, propositioning accountants. You get the picture.
Establish alliances with others selling different but complimentary services & products to the same people, you will realise major benefits. This a prospecting super tip! Why?
Because you’ll gain access to each other’s lists and networks. Creating a “circle of trust” – people who know you and love your work. If you do things right you might also create partnerships on the same sales. In the construction industry we always found that we sent work to a plumber,electrician, trades we knew. Do you see just how powerful this can be? You will soon grow your network in amazing ways! And make more repeat sales….sweet!
#2 Prospecting Tips – Mistakes we made: Take Back Your Power: You deserve to have the good things you envision…and you cant do so when you keep making the same mistakes we made.
Network marketers and most sales people habitually do and say things that immediately and unequivocally hand ALL of their power to prospects and customers, who then hold all the cards for the success or failure of the entrepreneur, without the ! Talk about power. The ability to cause someone to succeed or to fail. Think about that for a moment. It’s like playing god with someone’s livelihood!
That’s exactly what it felt like in our early days of marketing when prospects wouldn’t buy and we had no power to do anything about it. The worst part about this is the fact that network marketers and small business owners think they’re doing the right thing and that they’re SUPPOSED to take these actions that give all their power away. So many times we’ve said and have heard others use the following statements. Pure prospecting mistakes:
“I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get you custom or earn your business.”
“If you join my team or buy from me, I’ll be at your beck and call.”
“I’m all about after sales service. I’ll be available to you anytime after installation if you need help.”
“I’ll even give you my home number. I want to be available to you anytime for any reason at all.”
Why give your potential a paradox of choices? Be precise what you offer and you start off on the right foot!
You must present yourself as an equal at the very minimum, and preferably someone with more knowledge if its is valid! Then, and only then, will you receive the level of respect from customers necessary to make them fall into a frame of mind that THEY must prove themselves to YOU and EARN a place as your customer.
Please keep in mind that arrogance and brashness won’t get you far. Our aim here is not only to make you recognize that you are more than enough as a professional entrepreneur. But also emphasize to you why this frame is an absolute necessity if you are to become hugely successful in your business. Its but – a game. A game of wits and psychological positioning aka POSTURE!
#3 Prospecting Tips – Not Following up on the NOs:
Here is a prospecting mistake we used to make its amazing. Have you considered all the Nos you have been getting? The last 5-10 sales you lost, have you considered why you didn’t get them? If not, go find out and below is what could happen:
- You could redeem the sale. When you ask for feed back your prospect may have been going through a bad patch so timing was all wrong! So if you approach them asking for their help and feedback, you just might resurrect the deal and make a sale. These are the prospecting tips you keep hearing and not putting into place…Lol Its called Follow up…with a twist!
- Practice makes perfect, so you’ll definitely gain confidence & improve. This is more so if your prospect decided to buy from a competitor…as they do! Use this chance to find out why that happened This kind of feedback helps yo improve your chances of making he sale. feedback will help you get those sales! Application of knowledge is power, You will find that your next deal brings different results.
- You could get a referral. Did you even consider that when you are prospecting, you could ask the person for a contact or connection to someone who may benefit from your product or services? recently Ray Higdon did say exactly that. If you lack posture you could lose the sale. But don’t let them get away without asking if they know someone who does need what you offer! In most cases, your prospect may have been excited about the deal. So always ask this powerful, question: “Who else do you know that could use some help with….?”
In our Short Broadcast Below we Did Share with you Why you need to take your power back and give some Prospecting Tips. Watch and learn 🙂
#4 Prospecting Tips – Not Laying The Client Risk Out! This is specially prone to new business owners and entrepreneurs. Hyping things up and failing to Clearly share with the potential client a strategy for managing the risk. At one of the training events we attended over the summer. One of the speakers stated that people shy away from purchasing from you because of two reasons:
- they don’t think they can do it
- they don’t believe you can lead them!
Your prospects may become overwhelmed by the information you share esp. if you go into explaining comp plans! Yes many entrepreneurs focus on selling on price or Comp plan. This is pointless! People need to know whether they can promote the services as you do. So Keep It Simple Stupid…So mush so an 8th grader can understand how it works and the risks involved…! Money or start up costs shouldn’t be the major focus. That only arises when someone is not convinced of their abilities, your abilities or worse still the benefits of both! Get them to see these 3 and you got a sale without even worrying about the price…that is something people pay or find a way to do so when they see the vision!
#5 Prospecting Tips – Do you Value Your Time? This is another mistake made by new home business entrepreneurs and network marketers, that needs to be cured! The struggle with attrition is real. And most of us fail to understand that Time is a precious resource. We have to make the best use of the time we get to build our business. Have you ever made an appointment with a potential client and they either show up so late or they are a no show with no apology?
Then you can relate!
Paul & I once went to visit a potential client, who made us wait for 65 minutes! When she finally deemed it fit to show her face, she was dismissive and rude. Paul politely stood up thanked her for showing her face – and said See ya! You should have seen her face! It was priceless! Know your value, Your time is priceless. We wasted 65 minutes of our time that day. BUT we also learnt a lesson and we since then never wait for anybody beyond 15 mins! By the way this woman rang apologised profusely and Promptly made an order!
Lesson: Prospects must earn your time too!
By the way you can Download this Definitive guide to Prospecting 101 as a PDF:
This will help you as you home your Prospecting Skills and GET THOSE SALES IN…
#6 Prospecting Tips – Its okay to walk away! Yes this is one of those prospecting tips and techniques that only works for those with super posture and experience, and thus needs lots of practice to pull off and still get the sale or referral! No business relationship is immune to speed bumps and challenges. If a potential customer, prospect becomes aggressive and derogatory, argumentative and even brings up the P word…It can be an uncomfortable situation, and sometimes, fighting to keep calm. To either get or keep the business is a lost cause. The smart thing to do – walk away with your respect and posture intact. This will believe it or not leave you in a position to redeem the business. esp. if its an old customer who knows your value and worth and sees this after the “Grass is greener” Syndrome wears off! And absolutely make sure you too would Join You we recommend you avoid faking it till you make it….a No no!
#7 Prospecting Tips- Call your Prospects! While cold calling may be dead, CALLING YOUR prospects is a Must how will you learn of they have integrity i.e. if they have provided a VALID number? Well by picking that phone up innit! BUT we just don’t like to reinvent the wheel. When awesome resources like Hubspot have created a super post a whopping 25 Phone prospecting tips to get you that sale so go read said article here! Remember your product or service or you are not perfect for everyone. But may be perfect for the right people. Doesn’t matter how great your solution is since sliced bread, if it doesn’t fit how a potential client/customer does business, you wont make that sale! It’s nothing personal, it’s just not for them. The face doesn’t fit he frame. This one is not just a prospecting tip but a life lesson!
Yes, you will soon be in a position to turn down any prospect who isn’t deserving of your time, energy, service or consideration. That’s the ultimate example of taking back your power. It’s done all the time. You have the power. Keep it and use it. Give it to NO ONE.

We share 4 Steps of our enrollment System that Work 90% of the time – Part 3
Ready to enrol new reps Create Breakthrough Selling days and Hit Your Income Goals?– MLM Recruiting Secrets!
Do You Know How to Effortlessly Enrol New Reps into your Home Business or Network Marketing Business?
Do you really struggle when it comes to developing new business? This part 2 of 3 part series will offer more tips on moving past the low-hanging fruit and succeed with new prospects.
Are you Time strapped? Listen to the podcast here!
Okay my dear here we are focusing on how to enrol new reps. By sharing The Enrolment Mindset and How to get to Breakthrough Selling. These are the MLM secrets they don’t want you to know…So pay attention and then go implement And we will wrap it all up in a bow with Part 3 so watch this space…Okay where were we again?
A lot of Home business entrepreneurs, network and affiliate marketers have some resistance, discomfort or lack of confidence when it comes to sales conversations and to enrol new reps.
But think about it, doesn’t it make sense that if you need to hard sell, convince or manipulate someone to buy, neither they nor you are going to be very excited?
Seriously we can totally relate! I personally used to get the heats, tense up and my energy dropped before a presentation. I didn’t want to be pushy. Until I realised that in order to make sales I had to enrol new reps. We both have had to learn how to ENROL. You know we said it’s a better way to grow your business in Part 1…Haven’t read it yet. Well go do so now…coz this won’t make sense otherwise!
“Enrolling” means allowing potential clients to see the opportunity to get what they want.
When you finally shift to “enrolling,” properly, there will be zero pressure, and it is actually easier for someone to choose to work with you so you will enrol a new rep and do so very often. No convincing or cajoling is required. Coz these people come to you of their own bat…having filled out your form and qualified themselves, enthusiastically to get the chance to work with you!
If you’ve been avoiding presentations and prospecting because you didn’t want to go into convincing mode, here is one big thing you’re doing wrong…aaand
You’re offering “free sessions” and no up-sell…What!!!!
You have free offers of a sample of your work, Free Health sessions, Free 25 Recipes, Free Coupons, Free this n that and no up-sell, nothing to motivate your prospects to buy anything else off you, you just missed to enrol a new rep possibly!
We know, we know, we’ve been there…You’re hoping prospects will get a taste of what you do and sign up as customers or clients! Well guess what…
In fact, the opposite happens…we have tested it ourselves and the results are astounding!
Now that your potential buyer has a bit of relief or direction, their motivation to invest in your product or service is quenched & drops.
You see we asked our subscribers, who didn’t buy WHY and a large sample of the survey felt they had the solution. But it’s really just 5% of what they needed.
Same case with you, So they do not hire you.
They go off feeling pretty good about what happened. Yet all they got was a Band-Aid. The problem resurfaces soon after, they get upset with YOU. Yup you! Mirror mirror on the wall doesn’t reflect them…it’s your fault in their minds!
A classic lose-lose: You didn’t get a client and they didn’t get what they ultimately want either. This mistake is costing you thousands of dollars & a missed opportunity to impact someone’s life properly and positively!
Your FREE antidote is costing the people you are meant to serve, too. They start to think the industry doesn’t work and is a scam etc etc…aaarrrrr drat, that sucks!
Starting today, develop a system of enrolment conversations that transform (a win-win situation).
You could have offers or hold consultations with potential clients or customers that uplift them, so that they get that epiphany… that what they thought was difficult or even impossible is actually doable and totally within reach, if they follow a proven system!
Let’s give you an example…
Last week Pauli received a thank you note from a client after a 1-on-1 consultation.
He saw the 60minutes with him as a gift. He now has a plan, has a strategy & feels no longer stuck and paralysed with inaction. He left that meeting with clarity, restored commitment and a definitive determination to apply himself. BUT HERE IS THE DEAL…
Because he “enrolled” or signed up to work with us, it was a gift for us, too. We now have a new amazing, super committed client.
So remember that your intention in every presentation is to leave EVERYONE you speak with/to in a better place – feeling clear, inspired and ready to move forward. CLICK TO TWEET
Imagine people being grateful for the transformational experience they’re having with you in your program, rather than feeling scammed with a sales pitch.

ARE YOU READY TO ENROL NEW REPS & A PAY RAISE?
Because we work for ourselves WE are the only ones who can give us a raise. ARE YOU IN THE SAME POSITION?
So we wish to share with you 2 secrets to giving yourself a BIG raise…
#1 How to Enrol New Reps and Get a pay raise:
We were holding webinars, networking, throwing our ink on Facebook and to anyone who dared say hello, We then started a blog on blogger and Julie was blogging lots. I mean here we were involved in all these marketing activities and going nowhere…no sign ups, no enrolling new reps, no clients, phone wasn’t ringing, what??? Then we signed up for a webinar and this is what the marketing expert said…
“Don’t focus on getting clients with your marketing…
instead focus on getting consultations.” CLICK TO TWEET
To you and I that means set more appointments to SHARE your offers!
THIS felt doable!
We’d been expecting our efforts to lead us directly to enrol new reps. We had been trying to impress people and secretly hoping that they would call or sign up via our links by themselves and we’d get an email telling us we had made money. After all that’s what our upline said would happen lolol
As soon as we re-focused our marketing efforts on this one thing – Setting Appointments or consultations – We started getting LOTS more consultations! So learn this fast:
“Every marketing activity you do needs to lead potential clients to a 1-on-1 meeting or consultation with you.” CLICK TO TWEET
Your System or process needs to be designed to reliably and consistently enrol new reps or clients. When you do this well, it’ll lead to better client retention too. Your new customers want to say YES to one of your paid offers. So BE SURE TO CELEBRATE YOUR NEW CUSTOMER! Make em feel special!
#2 Secret To Enrol New Reps and Get a pay raise:
Double Your Income not your Effort Or Marketing …WHAT…HOW’S THAT PAULI I hear you say…
Here is a scene…you hold a webinar for 30 attendees and make an offer and you make 20 sales, or enrol new reps to that number yaaaay…WAIT A MINUTE…are you thinking what we’re thinking? You are either super good or seriously undercharging for your offers or promoting a low ticket program!
MY RECOMMENDATION: Double your fees…Yes you heard!
As a Consultant with years of experience in the corporate sales world, I can assure you many of our clients pay our premium fees when we bid for projects over the less known and lower bids! Why? Because we give so much value and KNOW OUR WORTH!
When you double your fees, you MUST improve your enrollment skills. But then you’ll earn a lot more money with every new rep you enrol or client you work with. You’ll leverage your time a lot better. And you’ll only need a small number of clients to make a great income. (This is if you have a high ticket offer).

What Is List Building & why is a Mailing List So Important To Your Success?
Let Me Ask You a Question…Are You Building Your List? Why am I asking this…because list building is the only way you will create a viable income on or offline simple!
Today I watched people goggling a dress trending on social media, looking & seeing different colours at various angles…Wow if only its owner or the Vendors knew how to monetize this viral trend, list building gone viral… See #TheDress on twitter & Facebook. We are all confused as to its true colours. I see gold & white lol. Is your List building strategy allover the place too?
Well, list building is where you take certain actions to collect people’s emails, with the intention of sharing with them specific information at a later date! A mailing list is basically a database of email addresses used by an individual or organization to send an email to multiple recipients at the same time. (Not spam). A list of people who have opted in for more information on a set topic. In this part 1 of the list building series I am gonna take you thru some hard bits maybe tell you a lil story…in order to emphasize the importance of list building to your home business!
Julie & I have been involved in Internet Marketing for over 31/2yrs (at time of publishing) and we have seen a multitude of insane claims about cracked codes and push button, autopilot solutions to create a fortune online out there and still do! Yet Research has proved that 97% of HBOs are struggling and not making a penny…So you ask yourself whats with all the money photos, the claims, the posh cars online…Well Have you ever heard of “Fake It till you make it…! By the way Don’t Do It! Image below tells the Real story of people’s lists (Click it to enlarge)
How many times have you been burned? That’s right. You thought you saw the light at the end of the tunnel, then BAM! Something turned it off. You found yourself holding the bag. Sound familiar…We have been there too. What would you have given then to know or have had the ability to properly analyze such “opportunity” before you decide to spend a dime?
I am positive you too have been sent links with some super hyped claims about the game changing offers that promise to make you $253,187 from home in your Jim jams in 1 week!
Let me put it out there this very moment and if you don’t like it feel free to Leave Right now. It’s extremely important you know that EVERY single one of such claims is a scam.
Let me Say that again: every single one of such hyped up claims of push-button, autopilot solutions to making money today or in a week etc. without putting in any work is a SCAM!
Fact: push-button, autopilot profit machines without sweat & effort don’t exist…
…with ONE exception.
If you’ve built a responsive mailing list that trust you, you can write an email with an offer affiliate or otherwise in 25 minutes… Broadcast it to that responsive List, be it Hundreds tens of hundreds of thousands of people – all at the click of a mouse, or a push of a button. And Guess what….
Once you hit ‘that send button’ your job is done. You can go watch your son’s soft ball game, go for a swim in the ocean, Go do that Zumba thing, play golf, or simply roll in a Turkish mud bath – whatever rocks your boat! And with your trusting and trusted responsive list – sales WILL start rolling in on autopilot… That’s what List Building is about, its the sole aim of most business owners!
Or is it all that? See you have missed out on a Lil something…
Even if you KNOW about the mailing list business model, most people have no idea how to manage a profitable list building system. Most people email their list as and when they have something to offer…in other words “spamming” sorry….
So today –I am here to tell you that even with a responsive list, It’s not WHAT You are selling to them, it’s HOW You Sell it to them! There must be a relationship built as we said in our email series before and you have to be Consistent! Tell me have you purchased a ton of info from emails you have received? Was it from a total stranger, or someone you feel you know and trust because of The consistency of VALUE they keep sending you DAILY or at least weekly?
Want to learn how we and others do it? With a Profitable Mailing List You can Make Money By “PUSHING A BUTTON” This Is The Only exception to Push button make money claims!
See One of our mentors Ray Higdon does exactly this! He sends out a broadcast DAILY sharing his knowledge and experience every single time. Every so often Ray recommends someone else’ product or his own.and guess what, I can guarantee you that I and numerous others have pulled out our credit cards and purchased…Kerching…Residual income on a Push of a Button….
BUT is it just one push?
Nope. Its daily, consistent, value giving, selfless sharing, building trust, creating relationships and getting people to believe that they know You enough to Buy on YOUR recommendation. This is HOW a List Building Machine that actually pops out money on autopilot every time you Push A CERTAIN button works! All others are a pure lie!
I can tell you another of the most ardent proponents of building a responsive list and who is raking the cash is a man from Wales UK called Alex Jeffreys, he gives away his stuff FREE so often its crazy
Are You going to start today to kick start one of your own list building systems? Well I sure Hope So! Because there are customers in all sorts of niches, Health & fitness, Porn, cars, travel, info products, baby food, shoes, cats… you name it and they are waiting to hear from you!
The reason we do our best to help so many people and why we keep wanting to help more people is because we remember when it was so frustrating. We know where you are and what you’ve been going through. We remember when we were buying every single product out there. I remember Julie trying to make money getting nowhere fast. I remember her getting very little sleep and I have to tell you, we were getting stressed.
Are you in this place today?
Not making much if any online. Most of your online purchases go on credit cards and, things are getting really out of hand. Spiraling into a whirlpool of debt? If your email inbox is anything like ours was, then you are receiving a nonstop flow of emails selling you stuff. Is that correct? Email after email of somebody selling you something new. A hundred a minute…Well you’re on their list!
Are you sure you want to carry on that way? There is a great way to Build your list and we show you WHAT IT IS because we have seen so much and still managed to build a List of thousands of subscribers, you might Like to try it out too!
We also did get with the right mentors and are part of the best team culture, training and support that there is online hands down…(I honestly believe so)! We consistently believe we share Value. We have built our list by creating a website where we share said value. But we started with a free WordPress blog again sharing value, and boy delayed gratification we have had to drink that cup in gulps!
Why List Building – The Power of the List
You definitely understand that traffic is the key to making money online…You believe that driving traffic to a website & Lead generation = making money…right? Well wrong my friend if it’s the wrong kind of traffic, it’s a waste of time! Its not WHAT is being sold to You nor the Traffic …Its HOW its Sold that matters! And the Key to traffic is NOT driving traffic…Its OWNING TRAFFIC…HOW? By building your own list!
When we spoke about delayed gratification, we didn’t mean go home pray, and switch the telly on and wait…Nope! You have to do some work upfront without getting paid. You have to have & USE A list building system the correct way. You have to either find one or build one & automate it. Once you got that sucker automated, that’s when delayed gratification starts to pay off! This is what successful people do, this is what we did last year and are continuing to polish and build our list this year!
It’s what Ziz Ziglar always said and its true today. It’s never really about you, you have to understand it’s about them; the subscriber, customer, what do they want? If you can marry up with what they want and give it to them, then you’ll get what you want too!
List Building & The Key to Making Money
The key is simply Reciprocity: Once you have built your list, you start to deliver value to them, whether you create it, or you get an expert to create it. Your subscribers will want to give back a certain percentage. Let’s say you give it to 4000 people, %ge of those are going to want to give back to you too. That’s just the law. By buying into the value you offer with their cash!
You can build your list faster by Offering something of value to other list owners in exchange for plugging your list. This has been done by 6-7 figure earners for years. Ben Settle suggests a strategy to do this. Using his unique style he was able to receive dozens of new (targeted) subscribers by spending just a few hours of his time. Learn what it was in this article.

Here is How To Work With Pauli
Who Else Wants To have a “Perfect Day” in Online Marketing? You will have an extremely productive day If you Follow a “To Do” List!
Well today is a Perfect day for me to share something deeply personal with you yet what has if got to do with Online Marketing? Well…a New year a New week, and its time for us to get Producing…so dig in !
Every single evening I write out a To Do list for the next day. Some people may think I’m highly organized…right! Well let me tell you but keep this Shusssshhh. 🙂 Between you and me, I can get distracted by just about anything, could be sponge bob square pants on cable. My goodness, are you like me, by gosh whatever distracts me does it real good to get me down a rabbit hole, it doesn’t even have to be bright and shiny…!
Yet here is the deal, in order to succeed in online marketing, affiliate marketing, network marketing etc, we must absolutely FOCUS and SINGLE TASK. Yes Multi Tasking will kill your braincells and your business…am not sure where I read that lol…Okay I’m joking, I do know exactly where, but you get the picture! You can’t possibly be going thru your emails and listening to a webinar…You will miss out on the webinar visuals and possibly the important nuggets you might have got to progress your home business! I am not going to delve into How to effectively Use a To Do List, that has been dealt with by other experts but go ahead and check out the article in the link above and Get Structuring your day better. In fact Brendan Burchard goes ahead to share with us How Millionaires Schedule Their Day & shares one of his daily Action sheets to help us get our To Do List Mojo on. Watch video below to see what he offers to help your online marketing:
Personally I use Evernote to schedule & sort out my day-to-day items together with IFTTT ( I wrote an article on this) for my weekly To Do List. If you aren’t using these two resources yet, Get going today!
Anyway, I reckon I have a bit of OCD…plus, I love the rush of seeing everything on my To do list checked off and done. I believe and so do multiple 7 figure earners like Mark Accetta, that Laser Focus will absolutely improve your online marketing. Check marks make me happy, they literally make me a perfect day in my online marketing agenda and strategy. Crossing stuff off? Pure Bliss, Ecstatic….am I weird? Maybe but don’t mind me, simply implement & accomplish a strict agenda to GET DONE at Least 3 items DAILY if you are full time and 1 item if part time in your online marketing activities.
So getting back to the story…for a long time now, any day that I got everything marked off my list, I would tell Pauli all about it in the evening, with a huge smile I announced that I’d had “A Perfect Day” in our online marketing projects. (This I would say with all the fanfare of a footballer who’d kicked the ball straight into the goal Or a pitcher who’d thrown a no-hitter or a Cricketer who’d scored a home run… or is that a basketballer!)..you get the gist right!
A To do List can indeed create for you a perfect day online and if you use one thats set for your pace and gets you out of your comfort zone that is pure magic! I “Eat my Frog” first thing every Morning before or when I sit down at my work station in my home office! And I believe nothing can go any worse as I have done the hardest thing first, for my online marketing and day to progress! So of course, when anything throws me off of my game, I kinda tend to lose my mind. Undone items on my list make me just a tad crazy (and not in a good way.)
That is, until I sit down with Paul sometimes just before we get to bed. One day as I am talking to Pauli, he said; You are too hard on yourself, do you know you have a”Perfect day” every day, in online marketing & otherwise? I said why is that? And he says;
– My love you get to have a lie-in when you want to, do you know how many times wish I could just stay in like you do?
– No rush hour traffic for you, boy that motorway traffic sometimes kills,
– You get to be there for us all, our children, friends family & I love that about your work,
– You Get to Treat your family & friends, treasure that my love its priceless,
– You’re there for the parish because you have the Time, you are banking blessings!
– You determine your Pay check, days off, vacations!
– Heck You ARE the BOSS and you really are making money in Online Marketing! Many don’t make a sou, do you see just how blessed we are? So what if you don’t complete a thing or two…!
He then looked me strait in the eye and said! My dear Syl, because of our Home Businesses in Online Marketing, You set your working hours and what you Can Get done. So if you are getting many “unfinished” days, you need to adjust your “To Do List” items so you can Be happier with You! Its a short sprint & then a jog daily for your marathon, run your Own race! Heck You need to celebrate the things you have accomplished. Many people don’t even have half of what we have. Most children have a mom who works all hours, You used to! Would You go back to that…! A lil shame faced i replied, I honestly couldn’t imagine doing that again ever…!
So, he said; Why don’t we have a weekly review, to celebrate your Achievements?
That’s how we came about our “Week in Review” exercise and I cant Recommend it enough. As a home based business owner you must take stock and review your activities every week. You can do that with your partner, upline, mentor, friend…! Go ahead and give yourself a treat for achieving i.e. doing what you set out to do in the week before! And purpose to get what wasn’t done the next week ASAP, you will start to See amazing results! Talking about all the highs and the lows over the past week.
So back on track… Paul said gently…you know you had a perfect Week not only in online marketing but as a mom, friend, wife, leader…. And here is why
“Well, when Gloria stopped by to talk about her new job and to learn how to use aweber (another amazing online marketing & email tool) that was definitely a highlight. Our Trip to Rome, sudden, a dreamtrip, unplanned great fun courtesy of our travel dollars benefits. And that night Arvie and you Skyped for fifty minutes! Since she had her operation that week and couldn’t walk for a while, that was a gift, a total blessing. Oh, and our impromptu dinner at Red Hot! Loved it.”… He went on to ask, … were these on your To Do List And do you think they are important?
Celebrating our daughter and her GCSEs, a friend’s New Job, laughing and loving with a friend who was about to go in for major surgery, and flirting with my husband over strawberries and cream & Pilau Marsala. Not on the list. Not even planned. Precious. Each and every one. Its not all about online marketing is it…
So what’s a girl to do, to have a more structured day in Online Marketing? Throw away the list?
No – the list focuses us to accomplish everything that we have purposed our Day in our online marketing agenda. But my list? It needed some room. Room for when life shows up in an interrupting kinda way. We all should have room. Because if we are truly seeking to enjoy our lives as Marketers, as Home business owners as leaders, as team builders AND dare I say live God’s will, those interruptions to our lists such as the above are oft times Life’s most important tasks for our day. They can only enhance our online marketing experience and lives in general.
Is there such thing as a “Perfect Day” in Online Marketing?
My answer is, You can make it a perfect day every day, if you so choose! My Message for today is, Focus on Manageable Tasks daily, leave room for life to happen and embrace the gifts that drop in between your list. Go attend that softball, soccer, basketball game, that music recital, coffee with a friend, a walk in the park with your child. Go out and have a meal, Attend a concert, Sit and watch a movie every so often. Yes Sacrifices must be made. But we also Must Live our Lives Today.
