How Important Are Events to My Network Marketing Business Success? Do you NEED to attend events? No. Is it advisable? Yes! Here is what events do:

 

Build belief - yours and your team.

 

You’ll see lots of other people who are normal, fabulous and it will instill in you the belief that you can do this, too, if others were.

 

It will build a team bond and culture that can’t be replicated over conference calls.

 

You and your team will learn more in a weekend than 52 weeks of conference calls.

 

Your company event is always the most important, and there are also generic events.

 

If you are interested in a smaller, boutique type event with 10 people where we develop a vision and a plan that fits you, contact me! We are putting this together for January 2016.

 

Now, as far as your kids and your spouse - they will be fine. Your kids will love the time they get with just your spouse, and you will enjoy the break! Speaking mostly to the women here. Listen as I share the kooky things I did to control the universe when I traveled! As far as your spouse’s support, now is when you need to have a heart to heart with yourself; decide how committed you are, and then have that heart to heart with your spouse.

 

I share some language on the podcast for how to do this.

 

I LOVE and appreciate reviews!

Jessica asks - I’m scared to talk to my warm market about my new network marketing business. I know I have to overcome this to be successful. what do you recommend?

 

Great question and one many of us have struggled with.

 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

How do I let my warm market know about my Network Marketing Business?

 

First, you must detach from the outcome. You can’t base your decision to stay involved or to keep going based on what any one or two people say.

 

Go through each person on your list.

 

What does the opinion of each one mean to you?

 

Try visualizing a positive outcome as you contact and invite them to take a look.

 

Use good Success Language. You can find that at StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Use a third party approach. Be calm and use no hype!

 

Write out what you might say and then look at it from their perspective. Is it simple, not salesy, and much like you were asking for their opinion on a pair of shoes?

 

Get yourself to that point.

 

And, don’t forget the take away if they get negative - I would love to have a conversation with you about what I am doing, but until you’ve reviewed the details, you don’t know what it is, even though you think you do. If you want to watch the video, and then we can talk, I would welcome that conversation.

What Should I Blog About 

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 189 and on today’s show, Savanna asks - what should my blog be about? Network Marketing in general, or more specific to my company products and the information about it?

 

Great question. Listen in to my answer.

Should I Blog About Network Marketing or More on My Company

 

To answer this, I have to take you full circle on my journey online:

Started 1999

Was scared to mention Network Marketing

Built my first website (no blogs then) around my Telecom company.

Changed companies and changed content to reflect Health and Wellness

Got caught up in Internet hype and changed wellness companies a year and a half later, so changed my site again.

Did not like the company or products and figured out the health products were not a good fit for me.

Started with a candle company, where I become the top income earner and built an entirely new site around candles and a business with candles.

in 2009, launched JackieUlmer.com as a blog and was doing a lot more generic training, so I switched to mostly generic content.

January this year, started with a new company in makeup and skin care, and have now launched a new blog, MakeupBizTips.com all around that product and all things have to do with makeup, fashion and fun.

It’s easy for me to find content for this, as it is EVERYWHERE. Ideas are everywhere.

So, the question for you - what are you excited about creating content around? What will you find it easy to write about? What’s your passion around?

Can you see yourself creating this content month in and month out, as that’s the commitment it takes with a blog.

Be sure and consider my Inner Circle Coaching Program and go through the target market and branding modules and learn how to define a niche for yourself and a focus.

How Do I Become a Six Figure Income Earner in Direct Sales

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 188 and on today’s show, Tom asks - How do I become a Six Figure Income Earner in my Network Marketing business. Great question and it’s one that I get asked quite a bit as I am talking to new potential team members, or among my coaching clients.


Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

What Does It Take to Become a Six Figure Income Earner in Network Marketing

 

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you are building - network marketing, party plan, a coaching practice or online business - it comes most often down to Mindset.

 

It takes a specific mindset to get to a six figure income in any profession.

 

The first question I always ask is -

 

Are you already earning a six figure income? The answer to this will say a lot.

 

It’s more than just developing your business skills, or the perfect script and sizzle line. It’s a mindset.

 

You must be willing to go through the challenges that it takes to build a six figure business.

 

If you’ve seen someone where it appears to happen overnight, there is typically a story before, that you are unaware of. They went through the process and paid their dues somewhere else before.

 

How much time are you willing to invest in building your business?

 

How much money are you willing to invest?

 

The time issue is critical, because when someone says - I’m gonna give it a try and I have about 10 hours a week.

 

Here is the reality - if they are working 40 hours a week now into a job and not making a 6 figure income, even 40 hours invested into their Network Marketing business is going to take some time to get it to the six figure income level.

 

It takes some time to learn the skills, develop the business flow and get comfortable with a daily routine and what to say, etc.

 

So, at ten hours a week, how long would they be willing to give it to get to the 6 figure income level?

 

We must be realistic about the time investment needed and the risk tolerance needed to get there. Will they make the list, make the contacts, follow up and develop that tough outer shell.

 

Get with the sponsor and have them help you lay out a daily action plan and develop the list of skills that you’ll want to learn to get there.

 

And, you must be a self starter. PERIOD.

 

It’s up to you - both your success and your failure. Look within and find what you need inside yourself.

 

If your sponsor is inactive, oh well. Contact your company and find someone active upline who is invested in your success, too.

 

Becoming a Six figure income earner starts with mindset, daily actions and business skills.

 

Learn the art of contacting, inviting, presenting with tools, follow up, asking them to join your team and then duplicating the process.

Is Social Media Hurting Our Self Esteem and Ego

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 187. Is Social Media Hurting Our Self Esteem and Ego. Have you ever felt bad after scrolling through the Facebook Newsfeed? Wonder why you don’t have more likes, shares, followers, hearts and so on? We’ll cover that in today’s show.

Social Media and a Hallmark Moment

 

Doesn’t everyone’s life just look amazing on Facebook?

 

A few years back I was shopping with my daughter and saw a sign that said - My Your Life Be As Fabulous as it Looks on Facebook. I couldn’t resist snapping the picture!

 

And, it did start me thinking - do we read too much into everyone’s “perfect looking life” on Facebook?

 

This is from a recent Periscope I did and I had to laugh since I shot the scope later at night because I had just been shooting makeup videos for my new blog! How ironic, that I thought - I can’t waste this good makeup look by not making a periscope!

 

Much like the holidays, and dreaming of those “Hallmark Moments” decorating the tree, opening gifts and so on - we can get too caught up in how we think life and things are supposed to be. When, in reality, it most often doesn’t turn out just like we think it should or will.

 

Life is messy, and that’s just how it is.

 

Actually, Periscope has taught me to be much more authentic and not worry about having my look just right before getting on live. Slap on a baseball cap, with bling, of course, and just go for it!

5 Dos and Don’t to Move Your Brand Forward on Periscope

 

First Mover Advantage - I decided not to wait until everything was perfect before I launched on Periscope. I ordered my equipment, but started with the basics of what I had - a selfie stick, my iPhone and what I had.

 

First Mover Advantage is how I launched my business online as well, and made millions along the way.

 

First, people told me I was crazy, and then they told me I got lucky.

 

I didn’t get lucky, I got going. So, I’m going to give you the same advice.

 

Figure out the basics of the equipment you need, and jump in. Swallow your pride and your fear and make things happen now!

 

Those who take action and deliver value will make this thing rock.

 

So, here are those 5 -

 

1. Give Value - there is no limit to what you can provide to people regarding direct sales, home business and personal development. The topics are limitless. No, you don’t need to be an expert. You just need to get started. What are you reading, studying and learning?

 

2. Have a call to action - I share my website and my Profit in My Pjs Report.

 

3. Be consistent - you don’t have to be the exact same time daily, but do your best to be consistent!

 

4. Use Hashtags and a captivating title with keywords. This is how people find you, especially when you are linked to Twitter.

 

5. Get Started now, and don’t wait.

 

Now, the Don’t -

 

Don’t make your platform nothing but a blatant pitch for your opportunity.

 

Can you talk about your business and products at some point? Yes, absolutely. Just launch in a way that gives value and then expand your brand.

 

Questions -

 

What do you do when you have a physical product? Most of us do have a physical product. You can showcase it, and do so from a personal story perspective and keep hype out of it. Share your product story and that will engage people more than facts and figures.

 

I share some language of what to use on the podcast.

 

Always look at things from a prospects perspective.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 185 and on today’s show, we are going to talk about the recent temporary shut down of Network Marketing Company Vemma, by the FTC, and what it means for us all.

Vemma, the FTC and What It Means For You

 

On August 26, 2015, a federal judge in Arizona issued a temporary shut down of Network Marketing company Vemma, based in Tempe, Arizona.

 

According to the ruling, Vemma is operating a pyramid scheme that promised college students riches if they sold its nutritional drinks, but most ended up losing money. And, a lot of parents were not happy!

 

Unfortunately, most of the claims do involve college students who claim they were duped into thinking they could easily make $50,000 a week, and were encouraged to incur debt to do this.

 

The challenge with this age group is that they can often get extremely overzealous in their claims, excitement and what they share with others, without regard for laws, FTC compliancy issues, or how this might ultimately affect their company.

 

So, as we all await a September hearing, what can we do, as members of the Network Marketing profession?

 

First, let's all be supportive of Vemma. I am no expert, but I don't believe they are an illegal pyramid scheme, and I doubt that the CEO, BK Borekyo is guilty of violating laws.

 

I don't know, and I am not an attorney, nor am I with Vemma, but I have met him; and know many from the company who are solid, stand up individuals.

 

Let's not be vultures, circling those who have just lost their vision, their company, for the time being, and for many, their paychecks and livelihood.

 

Instead, let's band together as a profession and show compassion, and integrity so that other's aren't left shaking their heads, saying - "See, I told you so!"

 

Next, how do we protect ourselves?

 

First, don't make claims of any kind.

 

Not income claims, or product claims, especially for those in nutritional companies.

 

Do not use the word - investment.

 

Do not make any promises of what can happen if you just do this.

 

Instead of making income claims, show the income earnings disclaimer offered by your company, no matter how pathetic it might look.

 

Here is what I say when soneone asks me about what they can expect to make -

 

Well, we have people making 7 figures and people making nothing. Where do you want to fall in that range? Let's sketch out a launch strategu and business plan to get you there.

 

Share your own personal stories and never use the word - cure. You can say your symptoms are better. Share the stories of others, and again, be careful with word choices.

 

And, never under estimate the value in customers. Choose a company that values the customer model and have some ongoing, steady customers who are not part of the pay plan.
