Generic MLM How To Steps

Are you wanting to learn the easy steps to success in an MLM business opportunity? Keep it simple, and just do something to get your website out in front of people.

There are so many choices in the network marketing and multi level marketing business, so please choose the right "fit" for you. This is the most important step. Take your time and read about the companies out there. If there are free trials so you can "try it before you commit" . Those opportunities let you see how they will work for you before you actually commit to doing that business.

Look for a company that has a vested interest in helping you in the beginning and getting you started and growing. A pay forward company that everyone who IS successful helps the new business owners BECOME successful. There are many choices but few MLM's that actually Do this, so do your research.

Now, you will put the blinders on to all the other opportunities because you have chosen. Choose and put your focus into it, even if it is a free trial to decide. Set it in stone and Focus, Focus, Focus! The grass can and will be greener where you are, Not next door!

Step one is to obtain a personal web address. Type in a search engine and you will find many companies that will host a webpage or just redirect your domain name to you business site. You want to choose an easy to remember, catchy site name. How catchy is Ebay or Google? Brilliant, isn't it. Step two is after you find an awesome, easy to remember, catchy website URL. You then need to successfully market this site and bring viewers and traffic to this site.

Step three is to find ways that work for you to market your site. My way may not be as effective for you. Fred, down the street may be using one thing and it does not work for me. Harriet has this awesome thing that is creating mass numbers to her site and you try it and you only get two people a week come and see your site. Find your ways by trying mine, Fred's, and Harriet's ways.

I have been collecting some of Fred and Harriet's and my ways. One is with e-zine advertising. Finding e-zines is as easy as a web search. Type in ezines. Then look for the ones that offer inexpensive advertising in their newsletters. They all work for somebody or the ads would not be there. Choose the ezines that you are interested in. You are in this business and are interested in health, dogs, plants, homes, tools, woodworking, etc. The people that read these ezines might also be interested in your business opportunity.

Reply to all of your personal bulk mail or spam with a short "I am currently busy with this awesome opportunity right now." Then add your link to your e-mail signature file.

Post a blog. Again use your search engine to look for places to post a blog. You can learn all about these on the actual blog sites. All the information is there and it is free knowledge and a free advertising tool.

Buy some leads from a lead vendor. Be careful to research your vendor and check the results of their leads. Most are posted on the vendor sites.

Get a sign or a bumper sticker for your vehicle. Everyone will see it everywhere you drive. They will read your personal website name. This is why your website name needs to be easy to remember, a one time read, and something they will never forget!

There are free business cards and low price T-Shirts available online to put your website URL on. You can be an advertisement everywhere you go. Hand out your cards, put them up on cork boards at laundry mats, colleges, stores and gas stations. You can create an empire with these tools alone.

Word of mouth advertising is indeed as powerful as ever. The t-shirts are a great conversation starter.

Step four is really the step before number one. Pray for knowledge and strength to get you through it all.

Step five is the awareness that you are creating a business that directly involves other people and their businesses. You teach them what you know and if you don't know you commit to finding out. Reach out and help those that found you. This is the key to great success. If you want to build a house, you have to be aware that it starts with a foundation and THEN move to step two. If you want to build an online empire you must know the steps to get to the top. You must help others and teach them how to get to the top.

Step six, be sure to set your goals and figure out "WHY" you want to get to your success driven goals. Do you want more time with your family? How about financial freedom? Is it that you need the means to help others? Would you like a house, car, or boat? Will extra income help you with a college degree? Do you want to see the world? Start a charity or be able to effect another one because now you have the means to effect it positively? How about helping your parents live more comfortably?

Step seven is knowing what steps are necessary to get there. If you want anything, you have to know what steps it takes to get there. Even if you want to eat, you have to know that you need to get into the car, drive to the store, and trade money for groceries. Study your business opportunity and learn the steps so you can teach others.

Step eight is BELIEVE, BELIEVE, BELIEVE. Believe that you will meet the people you are supposed to that will help you create success. You will need help early on and then you can help others as you gain success levels

Do not listen to anyone trying to take away your dreams. Here is an awesome short little story about crabs in a bucket:If you put one crab in a bucket, he will get out by flinging his arm over the top and then pulling himself out. No worries here. But, if you put more than one crab in that bucket, the one that wants to get out will flip his arm over, but the other crabs will grab hold and pull him back in with them.

See it as already being done. Write it as if you already achieved your goals. Speak it as if it already IS. Don't ever let the speed bumps of life stop you from reaching your goals. Here is another short story:A man was stranded on a desert island. He spent three days building a shelter out of palm trees and whatever else he could find. The day after his shelter was complete, he took a walk to the far side of the island to get more food and water. It started to storm. He began to run to get back to his hut quickly. He started dropping his food and spilling his water as he hurried faster. As he approached the clearing where his hut was located, a powerful lightning bolt ripped out of the sky and struck his make-shift home. He froze staring at the flames roaring up and engulfing his safety. He had dropped most of his food and spilled all of the water. Falling to his knees on the sand, he sobbed and cried out to GOD saying "Why?" So devastated and in such despair, he lay on the beach sobbing and fell asleep hungry, with no safety shelter. The sun and cool island breeze woke him from his terrible night. Looking out past his burned home, he saw a ship moored off the bay. Within an hour a small boat with a captain and crew slid onto shore. As they disembarked, the captain said "Ho there! We saw your smoke signal and came to help."Everything works for a reason to get you to your goals.

You already have the struggles in your life to reach the goals that you set for yourself. Life happens. Leave the negative luggage behind as you walk forward. Fear is just False Evidence Appearing Real. Belief is you tool against adversity and challenge. See the good in everything.When you look at a coin, is it heads side up or tails? Stress comes from resisting things that are, that you cannot change for today. Accept the things that you cannot immediatey change, work towards changing them. Life will respond to your thoughts and actions. Don't resist. What you resist, persists.

ie) Fred and Harriet are fictional characters.

Video Game’s, Mom’s, and Son’s

Generally speaking, although there are exceptions, it is easier to stay "in touch" with our teenage daughters than it is with our teenage sons. On the surface, it may not appear so, but how often do you get to really talk with your growing son? How much one on one time do you get? And I don't mean from the stands of a sporting event that he is participating in.


There are several ways to accomplish this major goal as a parent. You could go hiking together, camping, fishing, but these are usually "Dad" times to bond. Some Moms do this as well, but I found something that is fun, a bit challenging, and just about anyone can do it. Now, this is for the Mom whose boys enjoy video games and are completely brilliant at them, getting bored easily because they beat the game so quickly. Ask them to teach you how to play, be very interested, and genuinely wish to learn!


The easiest game I found, and the one my son taught me first, is Dungeons and Dragons Heroes for the XBox. It is a two player game, comes with a tutorial that you stay in until you have it all figured out and learn the controls, the graphics are pretty good, and will retain your sons interest for enough time to get you started. The choices in the two player game catagory are very limited, but after you master Dungeons and Dragons Heroes, try another XBox game called Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance 2. This is a more challenging game that will hold both you and your son's attention a bit longer as there is an awesome side quest to find soul shards. As you get more comfortable with the game systems, you start incorporating other topics into your conversations besides just the games and "which button do I push?" Before long, he will start to tell you important things about his day or even his thoughts. Understand, that if he is really good at the games, for him, it is a relaxing, no brainer activity, and those are the most opportune times to get to know who your son really is.


Yes, it might be a lot of work to learn something new, or you just don't have time, or it is too hard. OK, this is not for everyone and certainly there are other ways, but this way works And you obtain a skill to boot! Trust me, video games Are a skill! Some help with History, like Age Of Empires will give you is a big plus. Age Of Empires is a PC game that comes in different eras. A brilliant learning tool on the Roman Empire and tacticle manouvers, while you learn better to interact with your son.


Or, you could choose a racing game, like Mario Cart! It is a benefit to their later driving abilities and found with the Nintendo systems. Haunted Mansion is an XBox figure it out puzzle type game that boosts your thinking and reasoning skills. Even Fable, which is absolutely brilliant by the way, shows them morality as they and you journey through life. Fable and Haunted Mansion are one player games, but you can help him figure out the puzzles in the Haunted Mansion, and with Fable, the beautiful graphics are like watching a movie play out by your sons hand.


The best part of this adventure through gaming, other than the main purpose of getting closer with your son, is when you can play the cool old stuff we used to play, like Pacman and Gallaga. Nintendo has these for their system.  Your son might say that the graphics are a bit on the lame side, but you will enjoy the play time together, no matter how short.


Don't wait for them to want to do something with you, it may not happen right away. And, offering to do something with your son out in public is not always received with great eagerness. This is at home, no one has to be informed that your son is "hanging out" with his Mom, that is, until you get good and then become a bragging right for your son! Well worth the effort at that point!


You can spend time online at Amazon, or drive down to EB Games or Gamestop for inexpensive, used games. There really are only a few select "greats" that never get old. Enjoy your new skill and the new relationship with your son!

Choices Make Ripples

Decisions that present themselves in your daily travels are numerous. Each person separately may have many or few choices to make, but for the masses, they are quite similar.
The majority of the decisions laid in our paths involve what we will affect with our buying power. Which car will we drive, what home to purchase, how we dress, and when, where, and what we will eat. The vendor choices we have at all, depends solely on whether we have the income level needed to shop at Macy's or Walmart. Then, choices again for products or services offered by each individual vendor. The shower curtain assortment alone will leave you speechless! And ultimately, you are presented with the most American decision of all, credit or debit?
The way we choose, can also be varied. Some make a selection by flipping a coin, while others see the process as an arduous task, destined to consume them, interfering with every moment of their day.
The choices presented to us, change with the seasons, they change as we age, and with individual obstacles that sprout up in our way. Questions range from the simplest, "Am I hungry, and what will I eat?" to extreme complex problem solvers, "How will I get to work, if I take this new job?".  The "basic need" decisions have an affect on a grocer or small restaurant in a positive, but relatively small way. Although, if you have a positive experience, you will come back and might just bring or tell a few friends. Now, your simple decision turns into a long term positive force, driving future buying power.
The later, more complicated issues, impress on a much broader sector of the population. Employment searches require you interact with a much larger group of people. Your selection of prospective companies to apply with, in turn, create another list of possibilities. "Do I take the bus, or obtain an automobile?". Which then presents you with other avenues, roads, and trails.
Whether you are early or late, speedy or sluggish, bare or composite, realize first, that your conclusion to the situation is yours to establish. The choices are like stones, and what you choose is like throwing the stone into a pond. It leaves ripples. Produce positive, significant ripples, for the ripples we create today, will change the world tomorrow.
