Money is Not the Answer to Prosperity Problems

 

Years ago, when I was struggling in my Network Marketing business, leaders who were already making money would say - Have fun, enjoy the journey.

 

And, I thought that was the STUPIDEST thing I had ever heard. How could I enjoy the journey when the money was not flowing in at the time?

 

Here are some highlights from the show -

 

Prosperity is many different things and money is just one.

 

Gratitude and Appreciation for what you have and where you are NOW is the key!

 

Release, relax and find joy.

 

Are you looking? At a crossroads? I have been there, and there is no harm, no foul and no shame.

 

We don’t always get it right the first time.

 

Listen to my last show - http://JackieUlmer.com/288 where I share some of my journey and struggle the last two years.

 

That is how we learn and grow!

Choosing Between Two Direct Sales Companies

Here are the bullet points on today's show and why you want to listen all the way through.

I'm covering 3 things -

How to Choose Between Two (or More) Companies
Can You Work 2 Direct Sales Companies
My Real, Authentic Story


Criteria For Choosing the Company

What's Your Goal and WHY?
How do you feel about the product?
Do you understand what you'll be doing to market and share the product and opportunity? The language and the tools?
Do you understand how to succeed in the Compensation Plan? What do you need to do to make $500?
What's your relationship with your Sponsor and do they have what it takes to help you succeed, or can/will they connect you?
What's your gut?


Can You Work 2 Companies?

Again, what's your goal and your why?
Hard to succeed in ONE, much less TWO.
There is an issue of Transparency and Trust
How you feel about it and handle it will be big.
Develop Good Success Language around why.


My Story

6 years with first company
Frustrations
Health and Wellness - BIG NO
Being at a Crossroads
Finding the Perfect Fit
Getting Frustrated
Making a move to work with my daughter
The value in what I learned about myself
The value in branding you - website issues, non comliance and getting suspended

I Find the Beauty in Life and Business - Monday Mantra

Today’s mantra is Today I Find the Beauty in Life and Business. Say this all week. Write it down and speak it out loud, put it on your phone, on a sticky note on your mirror and anywhere to regularly remind yourself of what you are doing.

Wow, what a week it has been. Amazing things have shown up, It's funny how all of life and business are aligned and what a powerful role gratitude can play in bringing more of everything you want into life and business!

I practice gratitude every morning, day and night. I love stopping, being present in the moment and appreciating what I HAVE and appreciating knowing that more is coming.

Amazing things have shown up this week. One chance networking event, that I tried to talk myself out of, ;ed me to meet a beautiful woman, who invited me to an amazing party, where I connected with other amazing people and I ended up at a high end networking event that blew my socks off.

It's bringing good things my way and reinforcing how far I have grown!

Right before I recorded this, I received an exciting text from a great gal who is joining me in business. So, that is beautiful!

I met with a gentleman today and I feel like I can add such value to his business. And that is beautiful.

Be grateful for all encounters. Listen for the messages. Learn from every event.

So, practice today's #Affirmation, and see what shows up.

For the next week, practice our Monday Mantra for Direct Sales Success. Say it to yourself first thing in the morning, and last thing at night, before you go to sleep. And, repeat it many times throughout the day.

That’s it - Today I Find the Beauty in Life and Business - Monday Mantra.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 286, and this is my new monthly show that I will be bringing you on the State of Direct Sales, Social Media and Network Marketing.

State of the Direct Sales Profession February 2017

This show and content is for anyone who is a SoloPreneur -

Direct Sales
Network Marketing
Real Estate
Insurance Sales
Party Plan

Anyone who “hangs their own shingle!”


What’s Hot -

Customers - YES, there is no sin in having customers. We are moving away from just the personal consumption model, and putting more emphasis on Customers. The recent rulings by the FTC on companies like Vemma, Fortune HiTech, and even Herbalife to some extent, these past few years, more companies are putting much more emphasis on customers. And, this is a great way to get your own auto ship covered. 

IT keeps people in the game and gives them some immediate success.


Networking Events - these are also hot. These people are ripe for one on ones, and getting together to learn about your business and of course get the opportunity to share about their own. The challenge most network marketers have is that they don’t know how to be a professional networker. What to DO with that stack of business cards.

Watch my video where I share exactly how to do this -

https://www.facebook.com/streetsmartwealth/videos/10154951782049192/

At the event, lead with your product up front, and then share the opportunity side during the one on one!

You must expand your warm market because no one can build a business solely on the backs of friends and family. Get out and meet some people!!

Learn good success language and learn how to start conversations with people.

You can see my video on ice breakers here -

https://www.facebook.com/streetsmartwealth/videos/10154935279614192/

What else is hot - 3rd Party Approach and Referrals - get very comfortable asking for referrals and using the 3rd party approach. Resistance is created when you come AT people vs asking for a favor.

Asking for an opinion is always in style! People love to give opinions and do favors!

Follow Up - this is another HOT topic in ALL of business. What to do with that stack of business cards? See my video above on Facebook to get a GREAT idea of what to do.

My 5 Star Marketing System will train you on how to do this.

Treat Your Business Like a Business - have set hours. These can be whenever you want, but you must commit to a specific number of hours and activities each day.

Facebook Live - VERY hot in whatever business you are in.  Set a 30 day challenge do do Facebook live. And don’t worry about being great. Very few people will even SEE it when you are just starting. Remember Advertising 101 - it takes 7-9 times, on average, to make a sale! So consistency is important so you catch your prospect when the time is right!

Friends List - Creating new warm market on Facebook is huge, and an easy way to keep track of people is to sort them into lists. Your friends and contacts are your working inventory in your business. They are the ones who buy products; who buy/sell homes; who become team partners. Find people on Social Media sites and connect.

http://JackieUlmer.com/facebookprofits

LinkedIn is really hot for building business relationships.


Samples - people are receptive to samples and trying things. Use part of your auto ship and SAMPLE!

Instagram Stories and Snapchat are also Hot in Social Media!

Ask people the best place to connect with them. Identify where your target audience is hanging out!


So what is NOT hot?

Blatant Pitching - your target audience and prospects you would LOVE to bring into your business are watching you and the last thing they want to do is spam their friends. When you are blatant pitching on your wall, they are running far and fast.

Share things that create curiosity, above all.

Your Facebook Business page is where you want to conduct the bulk of your business!

Engage with people, including thought leaders. Not everyone is going to join your business, but they can help create exposure for you 

Adding People to Facebook Groups - this is SO not cool. It’s like ripping someone away from a conversation they are having and plopping them down in your living room.

Poor Listening. Online and Offline. But face to face, do not get on your phone in the middle of a conversation. Make the person you are speaking with at the moment the most important person in the universe at that time!


Join my team - this is WAY old school online and offline. Yuck. Where is the “What’s in It For Me?” 

Don’t use company graphics - bring yourself into the photo because that create authenticity.

Don’t use Salesy terminology like - “The Best”, Share the value in what you offer and let others tell YOU why it is the best.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 285, and it’s Mantra Monday, as part of the Monday Series - Monday Mantras, today’s mantra is Today I gave it my best and tomorrow will be even better. This is a great mantra on how to Do Your Best in Direct Sales!

Do Your Best in Direct Sales

Today’s mantra is Today I gave it my best and tomorrow will be even better. Say this all week. Write it down and speak it out loud, put it on your phone, on a sticky note on your mirror and anywhere to regularly remind yourself of what you are doing.

Let's face it, we only control so much of what goes on in our lives. We control our emotions, our thoughts, feelings and our actions. Our actions are how you do your best in Direct Sales.

If you will make sure that each and every day, you give it your very best, you will be happier, and success will naturally make its way to you.

Practice this in each area of your life, not just your direct sales business.

How can you do your best?

Show up with an action plan and actually ACT on it. Do income producing activities in your business. Reach out to two people a day and use the 3rd party approach.

Follow up. Be interested in others. Be engaged and be about more than just business. Always ask - how can I create a win win in business with my prospects and those who are interested?

Be a professional.

Be able to look yourself in the mirror at the end of each day and say - if everyone on my team did what I did today, we will all be sitting on a beach together soon, sipping coconut drinks!

Be the leader! Every day - Do Your Best in Direct Sales!


So, practice today's #Affirmation, and see what shows up.

For the next week, practice our Monday Mantra for Direct Sales Success. Say it to yourself first thing in the morning, and last thing at night, before you go to sleep. And, repeat it many times throughout the day.

That’s our Monday Mantra - Today I gave it my best and tomorrow will be even better.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 284, and today is a Q and A show, meaning I am covering the questions you have asked me, either on Twitter, or the Facebook business page. And, today’s main question is How to Get More Facebook Fans and adding people to your list once they are on your page. I’m going to share 4 ways to boost your page likes.

How to Get More Facebook Fans

This really is the QUESTION of the year. Who doesn’t want to know more How to Get More Facebook Fans and likes.

We don’t want to wear out our friends with constantly posting on our Facebook profile, and yet we want to do business on Facebook.

Facebook has gone to more of a pay to play model, but there are plenty of pages that are getting engagement and growing without spending money, or at least not a lot. So how to Get More Facebook Fans without paying a fortune, then?


Create quality content.
Personally invite your TARGET audience.
The #1 Way to get eyeballs to your page.
Be consistent.

Creating Quality content that your target audience is interested in on Facebook helps tremendously with how to Get More Facebook Fans.

Did you listen to the show last week on the Facebook Algorithm? Go to JackieUlmer.com/282 to first understand this, so you can know how your content will better show up.

This leads me to #2 on our top 4 list, which is personally inviting your target audience to like your page. This is so important.

Do not use the Invite people feature that Facebook is going to show you. Why? How many times are you invited to Like a page and then just ignore it? Or miss it altogether?

Those notifications are annoying to many people and seldom really create likes and certainly don’t create raving fans, which is what you really want.

You only want to invite your target audience. And, have you taken time to identify who that is? Spend some time creating your target audience avatar and know who you are speaking to with the content you create.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not everyone. Fine tune the qualities you are looking for in your top prospect and speak mostly to that person. You will attract others.

My focus for years was stay home moms, as that is who I was and I could speak that language very well.

Today, I focus on Real Estate Agents, Solopreneurs and those in Direct Sales because I have something that can help them move their business forward.

Learn more about that at WorkWithJackie.com

So, what is your focus? What are the qualities of the perfect person for working with you? What are their challenges and pains? What solutions do you provide?

When you know these things, you can more easily create content that speaks to that audience.

Also, if you struggle with creating content, I have a done for you content program that is going to give you 3 pieces of content weekly that can be used on your blog, and on social media. This will get you in the habit of creating content and understanding your audience and what gets engagement.

Go to JackieUlmer.com/dfy

The 3rd piece in the equation to get more likes is Facebook Live. There is seriously no better way to get views, likes and engagement right now than Facebook Live. And, VERY few people are using it, so why aren’t you? 

The first time, just give it a try. Have fun and let people know you are just testing it out to see how it works. Share something funny or engaging and just get the first go at it out of the way.

Try to always end with a call to action. Live video can be an integral part of your social media marketing, so make the most of it by directing your audience to a specific place. Include a simple call to action at the end of your video, such as to visit your website or private message you for more information on the topic. Send them to your list or free giveaway. This is a powerful way to grow your list.


Finally, be consistent. You need to create a regular posting schedule so that you DO show up in the newsfeed of your target audience. Teach your fans how to select See First option when they like your page so your info does show up for them.

Begin to post daily and then bump it up to 3 times a day, at varied times. Check your insights to see when your fans are most likely to see your content based on when they are on the site. Facebook provides you with all of this info.

If you want to know more about the best type of content; why you don’t want to invite your whole family and everyone you know to like your page; how to know the best times to post for the most engagement; ideas for building your brand on Facebook, and how to really nail down your target audience, check out Facebook For Direct Sales Profits - http://JackieUlmer.com/facebookprofits


And track your page likes over the next 30 days and see what shows up!

Intentional Mindset for Direct Sales Success 

Thoughts are things, and we know this. It’s nothing new. What you think about, will come about.

Look where you are in your life right now. This is your vision, and you are living the intentions you practice, whether you like it or not.

Want to change it up? Shift your thoughts. Start with a mantra. This week, say to yourself - I have an Intentional Mindset for Direct Sales Success, and then practice our mantra -

 I intentionally develop the mindset, thoughts, and beliefs I need to move past the friction and obstacles in my life.

Think about these 3 key things for a minute -

Mindset - check in on what your mindset is telling you regarding your business. Is it empowering, or disempowering?

Thoughts - check in on your thoughts regarding your success in Direct Sales. Have you had success? Have you taken action? What role do your thoughts play in either one? Your success and your actions? Our thoughts determine where we do, what we do.

Beliefs - mindset and thoughts enforce our beliefs. What do you believe about Direct Sales? Do you believe it works? Do you believe it only works for others?

When you reflect on these 3 things, what do they tell you about your Intentional Mindset for Direct Sales Success? Have you set yourself up for the success you want?

For the next week, practice our Monday Mantra for Direct Sales Success. Say it to yourself first thing in the morning, and last thing at night, before you go to sleep. And, repeat it many times throughout the day.

That’s our Monday Mantra - I intentionally develop the mindset, thoughts, and beliefs I need to move past the friction and obstacles in my life. This week, let’s set an intentional mindset for Direct Sales Success.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 282, and one of my most common questions is about Facebook and how, why and when people see your stuff on Facebook. Are you wondering why you don’t have more engagement? Or, are you wondering who is seeing your stuff on Facebook? Let’s talk about Understanding the Facebook Algorithm

Understanding the Facebook Algorithm 

Do you ever wonder how or why certain things show up in your newsfeed? How come you see Susie Q’s updates all of the time; and yet only occasionally see Joe Rockstars?

While Facebook never reveals exactly how the algorithm works, there is one and there are things we can figure out just by paying attention. 

A lot of what you see is going to be determined by a few key things -

How many friends you have
Your interests and those things you comment, like and engage about
Videos you watch
Common interests you share with others

Those are just a few.

Now, if you live in the US, and you experienced, or are experiencing the political circus we have going on with the November 2016 Election of Donald Trump; the defeat of Hilary Clinton and all of the craziness that has surrounded the political circles. 

Facebook has been full of “fake news”, Alternative news, mud slinging and unfriending. It’s a little scary to be out there.

Now, as you are listening to this, and depending on where you live, you may be oblivious to this. If so, it’s because of where you live, and the fact that you have not liked, commented or engaged much with anyone who is sharing about the election or politics.

I don’t personally get involved in politics on Facebook, but I do occasionally read the posts of others, or watch some video. Overtime I do that, I get a barrage of political stuff that overtakes my newsfeed.

Why? Well, Facebook noticed what I was clicking on and watching, even though I was not commenting or liking. Based on this, Facebook began to show me more of this because it assumed that I wanted to see this, was interested in this subject because I was clicking and watching.

This will help you have a better Understanding of the Facebook Algorithm. In a nutshell, that is how it works.

Facebook only shows up to 300 pieces of content in anyone’s newsfeed at any time. And, they are going to show you what they think you want to see, based on your friends, your interests, new friends you’ve made, pages you like, groups you belong to, things you’ve interacted on already, searches you’ve done and so on.

Have you ever thought that Facebook is saturated for your company, or even direct sales? Nothing could be further from the truth! Facebook is showing you what it thinks you want to (with no judgement) based on YOU and how you have told it to behave!

You tell Facebook how to behave with you based on your profile; your background; your friends; your interests; where you’ve been; who you’ve been with; what you did; who you tagged; keywords in your profile; business pages you like; new interests you have (like a new company, and new friends and new pages/groups based around that) and so on!

When you make friends with someone, Facebook sees what your common interests are. If you interact a lot, especially in the beginning, Facebook will show you more from that person and your mutual interests. 

When you engage with people, Facebook shows you their content, which is why you will notice if you pay attention that Facebook shows you mostly the people you interact with most frequently.

Take my son, for example. He’s on Facebook but is not a raving fan, nor social media junkie. He posts occasionally, and likes/engages from time to time. Unless I go find his page; or he tags me; or a bunch of our mutual friends interact with one of his status updates, he almost NEVER shows up organically in my newsfeed.

Creating friends lists can help you stay more engaged with the right people and move outside of that 300 post limit Facebook is choosing for you.
