Tips on How To Convert Your List

Listened to a great training call with Michelangelo Perez in Empower Network and he shares how to get your ‘list’ converting super fast no matter what Biz Op or MLM you are promoting…

Most people think they have to collect a HUGE list over 20k or more. Let me tell you after listening to Michelangelo this is a pure myth.

He earned over $400k with a list size of 13K. Personally my list is no where near this size, more like a couple of thousand, but hey we all got to start somewhere, right!

What I learned

List size does not matter.

It’s how you engage and interact with your list that will get people to open your emails and eventually ‘bond’ with you and build that trust and rapport.

You know you have made it when you still starts responding to your emails, you know they are engaging with you.

Driving leads to your landing or Biz Op page -99% have been beat up by a MLM Biz Op, or their sponsor has entered the witness protection program and gone underground, or they are already in an MLM or Biz Op.

The person who wins is the person instead of sending an email to join my program, send out value that will help them. The person who wins is the person who says I can help you no matter what you are already in.

When you position yourself to help someone no matter what they are in, you will be the one who they turn to.

Take the time out to create valuable content, videos, podcasts, blog posts. Send something out that is passionate from the heart, that you have learned.

Build a TRIBE not a list. Tribes, will stick with you, people can unsubscribe from lists.

If you share what you are doing with your business, with your teams, how you are recruiting and getting results, this may be useful to others.

Collect email addresses – this is the key to building your list, but building rapport will help you maintain and keep your list.

When you treat your list right, you list will treat you right.

Become A Good Copy Cat

• Subscribe to people who are making a splash in the business arena that you are wanting to get into

• it’s not just about subscribing to the gurus list, look at newbies, look at the people who have taken coaching programmes, look at what they are doing, and you will get the benefit of the coaching that they have PAID for… for FREE!

• swipe copy and make it your own – don’t just take a straight copy and blatantly re-use it. It is someone else’s copyright material, make it your own, use the same sentiments to get the message across.

• use videos that you have viewed where you have had value, and re make it with your own ideas and swing on things.

Biggest Mistakes Marketers Do:

• Spend a lot of money on marketing / solo ads and you don’t email enough

• Remember that the emails you collect are not unique to you, they will be on others lists. It is how you promote yourself and the content that will help them that will get people opening your emails and reading them.

• Autoresponders are not the answer to getting people to convert. It is a uniformed message that thousands of others are also sending out.

• Other people / gurus will be in their inbox. What are you doing to stand out?

• Just because they are in your list, doesn’t mean they will buy your products.

• The person who collects and converts the most leads is the one who is just being yourself.

• It takes time to build rapport, but providing value to your list in a consistent way will help to build rapport

• Be yourself, and only promote one product to your list (if you have to segregate your list for products, then do so, it will reap rewards, as you will look consistent and not a person who jumps from programme to programme.

• Invite people to connect with you via video message, podcasts or through your blog.

• What other offers are you providing to people who do join up with you? how will it benefit them and not just you? It’s how you communicate, talk to, email and encourage your list that will get them to open your emails and not delete it.

Success Happens For Us Not To Us!

Listened to a motivational call today and it made me think…

If you have problems, don’t run away from them, life is teaching you lessons. If you didn’t have these problems or issues, you would not be able to cope with what other issues or problems comes to you. Life has a way of letting success happen FOR you, provided you take the steps to help yourself succeed.

Where you are, in your life right now? If you focus on the negatives, then more of that will follow. Whatever is happening in your life, is because of what you have been focussing on until now.

Most people don’t realise this and continue to moan, or be miserable or focus on the issue, rather than look outside of the issue to see what the lessons you are being taught by life. It is up to you to change things going forward.

You are able to get what you want in life, if you are able to manifest it. To be able to do this you need to have vision and objectives to help you focus. Don’t worry about HOW you will get there, just focus on the vision and the objective daily until whatever it is has manifested itself. The law of attraction works, you just have to have blind trusting faith in what ever it is you want that you will achieve this if you focus and believe.

Being grateful for the little things in life, will also help to bring your intention closer to you. Having a mindset of gratitude will make you see life in a more positive and focussed way.

Some people have a way about them, they critique even the smallest things, what they don’t realise is the negative vibes they are creating around themselves by doing this. This will only bring more negative vibes. For those that are around these people, if you begin to engage it will also bring you down to their level, and negativity will follow.

Life is far from perfect, so why look for perfection in everything you do? Nature is full of imperfect things, but they still create a vision of beauty.

Send out messages of gratitude daily and you will start to see changes in your life.

Success happens when you have vision and goals and take action to work towards them, success does not happen to us, it is something that is made up of hard work and years of effort.

Success happens FOR those who take action or steps to make it happen…

5 Tips to Dismiss Negativity In Your Business And Your Life

positive vibes quote

Life is not full of roses and positivity all the time, there are moments when even the most inspired person feels down.

Here are 5 tips that I have used to help drag me out of a negative or ‘bad’ vibe and got me back on track to some good vibes. When we are in flow with the positive vibes in our own space, that is when the magic of opportunities start to happen.

1. Develop your mindset. Reading self development books, watching you tube motivation videos in areas where you feel you need to strengthen yourself will help to improve your mindset and confidence.

You are More than you think you are. Yes you are. You just have to look at ALL of your qualities. If you can’t see what they are, ask your friends, they will tell you the honest truth.

2. If you are not failing, you are not doing. By this I mean we all have to at least TRY something, right? If you are not trying SOMETHING then ultimately you are not doing ANYTHING, which means you are going no where.

However, when you go all out and try, but it doesn’t quite turn out right, then FAILING and learning from that failure, ensures you are MOVING FORWARD!

We have to move forward from our failures. Do you know that most successful people fail loads of times, but they learn from each failure and next time turn it into a success. So can you.

3. See the Positive in every Negative. Let’s face it, shit happens, we do get dealt some awful blows at a time when things seem to be going really really well. However, sometimes you just have to look deep into the situation to find out what the positive was. For instance, the other day my son had a car accident, (not his fault) and he felt so down, in fact distraught was more close to the truth… but what came out of it was that his car was fixed and had newer grills put on it. Now a few months before he was ‘moaning’ about the scratches and little stone dents on his bonnet, but now his bonnet was getting fixed as part of the claim. To me, that was a positive out of the negative, also the fact that a lesson learned was to be more aware of other drivers and what they are doing, and don’t second guess that they do know what they are doing!

4. Let it Go! Yep, just like the track Frozen, if you hold onto bad vibes, negative feelings, sadness too long it will bring you down, and possibly push those around you away. So just ‘let it go. There is nothing you can do about it anyway, but reflect and learn from the situation. Go out and have fun, watch a comedy, find the funny moment in the ‘bad’ event, do something to make you smile, the negative vibes will soon leave your body.

5. Look Forward, not back. Listen we were created with eyes in front of our heads, not behind us, so that gives you a clue as to where you should be looking right? Too often people get stuck in the past and keep looking back over old issues / problems. If you keep looking back, you won’t see a new door or opportunities opening up for you.

If you do some if not all of these things, your life will turn itself around and you will discover that there is more in life, through the lessons life dishes out. Yes every trial and challenge is a lesson life has for YOU especially, and if you don’t take head of that lesson life keeps repeating the lesson until you GET IT!

Why You Should Have A Blog If You Are In Business

If you have an online business then it is essential you also have a blog.

Just a few years back blogging was seen as geeky, not now.

bloggingBlogging can become a serious money making tool. In some ways it’s better than a shop front.

With a blog you can define your niche and build on it.

You can have your blog as your shop front.

You can promote sales, competitions and let customers know what is happening in your business. More importantly you can generate leads!

Leads = List= Freedom = Money

Many business people, especially those offline, do not see the benefits of blogging, and maybe it’s time to take a step back and look at how you can generate new customers using a blog.

More and more people are heading online, event if only to check if products are available at stores etc. so this is a great reason to set up a blog.

As you know by guest posting you are putting your blog posts to another audience which will serve to increase your audience and your list. We all want to increase our reach out there in the world wide web.

Look for other marketers in your niche and ask to do guest posts.

Marketing through blogging is another thing entirely and if you don’t have a marketing strategy you may need to be looking at writing to no one!

Blogging helps you to build rapport with customers, and also builds creditability for you also, particularly if you have lots of shares and comments.

You can blog about anything, take examples from around you, thing syou are passionate about, your kids, your experiences, from lessons learned that day or lessons from life itself.

If you market your blog correctly you can earn money from it.

You can earn money advertising space on your blog, if it is a niche area and if you have a high number of visitors each day or month.

You can market your affiliate products on your blog and get additional income.

If you already have a blog you may want to look through getting this reviewed. There are a number of sites that can review your blog and give you a report on how versatile it is for SEO, how you could improve your blog speed, or blog visitors. It is worthwhile the investment if your blog is your key method for generating your online business.
If you want to know how you can generate more income from your blog, why not learn from the man who has made millions of dollars from his own blog. Ray Higdon has taught me some great tips and marketing strategies on how to generate leads, interest into your business and income. You can look at the same programme I did with Ray here
