Most People are Wimps

most people are whimpsYep, going off on an emotional twist tonight…I’ve pretty much gotten to the point where I’m just sick and tired of the bullshit.

Yes mom…I’ll try to keep my tongue civil.

Of course, I am right, there is a lot of bullshit to get sick and tired of

If you are on this blog looking for ways to generate income I’m going to assume that you have a bit of courage on your side, that you are not the type of person that would bow down to the boss man and you are the type of person that leads the way when it comes to entrepreneurship! Right?

Well, statistics show that most people are not that type of a person. Most people like and hunger for security versus an opportunity to break free of the norm, break the chains of slavery and move out into a world of financial and time freedom.

I like to call this “Absolute Freedom!” It’s as close as any of us will get I believe anyway…

But I must say, with all of these assumptions that I have made I can only come to one conclusion and that is that most people are either too damn scared to do what it takes to succeed online (or offline), i.e. they most people are wimps…


People are lying to me and telling me what they think that I want to hear.

I’m about to launch a fantastic opportunity again…yes, I’ve been involved before…and it is the cash gifting activity.


Because it works. It is probably the number one way that I EVER found to generate a LOT of cash very quickly.

I’ve never had a problem with gifting as I think it’s more honest than just about any other form of biz ops out there.

I mean let’s get this straight…

People come online to make money, not to fiddle with pills or lotions and potions…People want $CASH$!

So here’s the deal.

I’m going to start walking away from all of these bullshit programs – that may even be the All in One Profits program – and start building up the gifting activity hardcore! You can either join me or not.

If you do join me, I will do whatever I have to do to make sure that you generate as much cash as possible. I will turn the Elite Marketing Systems Group into a cash gifting university! We will teach people how to generate hundreds and even thousands of dollars a day

We will walk away from the “herd” and forge ahead creating awesome lifestyles!

Yes, it sounds weird, but I can promise you, with the right marketing and the right advertising, we will be pulling in a bunch of cash.


Or are you scared?

See you at the top!


How to Make 10,000 Dollars a Month Online

Make 10,000 Dollars a Month Guaranteed!

How many times have you been clicked on a link promising something like “Make 10,000 Dollars a Month Working Two Hours a Day or Less?” I can tell you right now, if you haven’t seen something like that online so far…get ready because you will.

Yes, most of the time that you see a lead in or headline like that above you can almost guarantee that it is nothing more than a headline designed to attract you to this person’s latest biz op. The question is, can you really make 10,000 dollars a month with most opportunities?

Want Success? Find Out What Your Consumer Wants!

Learning to generate income, whether it is 10K a month or 100 dollars a month is a process and it starts with your ability to attract the right consumer.

Who are you creating and producing content for? I hope that you are targeting your target audience. I hope that you are wisely choosing key phrases that draw people to your site and to your products or services.

You want to know who is looking for that whole Make $10k a Month line? Just about anyone that has ever dreamed or fantasized of the stereotypical “internet marketing” lifestyle has probably clicked on a link promising to show them how to make 10,000 dollars a month with very little work. Probably more than once if you want my honest opinion.

The key here is to always focus on developing exactly what your audience wants and believe it or not, many people would love to generate 10k a month.

Setting Those Realistic Goals to Make 10,000 Dollars a Month

OK…I have told you why and sort of flirted with the how of selecting an obscenely obvious headline, but let’s really look at this and use our common sense to determine what it will really take to make 10,000 dollars a month online.

make $10,000 dollars a monthRecently, just a few days ago, I saw video on the website SocialTriggers.com about setting realistic goals. Actually, I sort of stole the whole headline from them as well, but I thought that Derek Halpern, Social Triggers owner, made a great point about one of his students telling him that she needed to make 10k a month even though she had not earned a dime from the Internet. If you would like to check out his video then CLICK HERE!

Where in the world do these people come from?

Just today, I was speaking with someone that was telling me that they wanted to generate income online, but wanted to market a very specific way and were not interested in any of that social media “stuff.” Now understand that this person called me to ask me for advice. They had been “working” online for quite a number of years, but were still not successful, but still did not want to touch that social media stuff.

Are you kidding me? It seems to me that if you were interested in learning how to make money online and you haven’t been doing too well over the course of a few YEARS that you might be receptive to trying something new.

Look…I make money online and I don’t really think it’s that difficult. It’s not super-easy, but it’s not very hard when you know what you are doing, however, learning to set realistic goals starts with having realistic expectations and a realistic perspective.

Over the next few weeks, I will start pushing a new opportunity pretty hard and I’ll bet that I can get close or actually make 10,000 dollars a month in my first month or so, but here’s the deal…

…I already know how to market online because I’ve been doing it for quite some time now.

And herein lies the “rub.” Learning how to market your business opportunity, service or product is what is required to make any money online at all.

I don’t know where the idea that because you are online marketing a business for some reason it would be easy. Basically, it works like this…

You build a website and all of the sudden people will come running to your site and you make a whole bunch of money.


The Internet is simply another medium where you can market and promote your business, but I promise you that if you want people to come to your site and see all that you have to offer then you are going to have to get to work!

Still Think You Can Make 10,000 Dollars a Month Online?

Let’s be honest…do you really think that you can make 10,000 dollars a month using the Internet?

If you said, “Yes,” then you are right!


…you aren’t going to generate that kind of money right away UNLESS you know what you are doing and this means that for most of you…if not all of you that come here…are going to have to spend the time and effort to get the training you need to generate that kind of cash.

However, if you are willing to learn and if you are willing to work towards your goal of generating cash online then your 10k goal is well within reach.

Everyone has to start somewhere and a great place to start is with free training that we provide at the Elite Marketing Systems Group.

Whether or not you will make 10,000 dollars a month, EMSG will for sure help you earn your first dollar and that’s the first step!


leads network marketing businessesLeads Network Marketing and Other Opportunities Require

No matter what you are promoting, leads network marketing and other businesses need can come in many different locations and those with the ability to find these resources and are able to convert these leads are the very folks that are finding success on the Internet as well as finding it offline too.

While this may seem like a “no-brainer,” this is the one area where marketers online seem to struggle a bit.

So…why so difficult? Leads network marketing companies and affiliate programs and everything else under the sun requires to survive are everywhere, but one needs to gain an understanding of the process of generating these “elusive” prospects – and believe me, it IS a process!

Free vs. Paid

While there are a number of folks out there that would love to sign up with their network marketing, affiliate marketing or direct marketing businesses and start making money, most of us realize that this isn’t going to just happen on its own.

Basically, there are two different paths the modern marketer can take when it comes to lead generation, free lead generation and paid lead generation. This goes hand in hand with free and paid advertising (of course).

Free leads network marketing companies and marketers can really use come from many sources, but one should understand that the term free only means free when it comes to a dollar amount or some other form of tender. Free marketing usually requires a significant amount of work.

leads network marketing businessFree Leads Network Marketing Leaders Draw From

There are a few places where many network marketing and internet marketing leaders can pull from and some require less work than others. There are a number of facebook marketing methods out there that can provide a large number of responses in a short period of time and these methods are fairly simple and easy to carry out.

I love, Love, LOVE facebook because it gives ANYONE the ability to tap into a very targeted audience very quickly.


Many folks coming online to facebook place a LOT of information on their business and personal pages – ESPECIALLY if they are attempting to use facebook for networking and marketing purposes.

It is easy to find people on this social platform that are listed as network marketers, internet marketers, mlm professionals, etc., etc. just by viewing their profiles. Many will state in their mini bio that they are promoting this company or that company, that they are “professional” marketers or “coaches.”

Since most marketers are really struggling to promote and market their business opportunity (about 95% are struggling to do so) because no one has really shown them how to do it, many are still looking for an opportunity! This provides you with a great opportunity as well.

I’m not going to say that everyone is looking for your mlm opportunity and I don’t recommend that you bash these poor souls over the head with your business either. The best method is in understanding why someone is struggling and how you can help them.

So Why Do People Struggle With Their Online Businesses?

This one really isn’t that hard for most people to understand. As a matter of fact, if you are reading this then you too are probably struggling to successfully market your opportunity or your products and why? Usually it has to do with technical know how and salesmanship.

Since this is probably the number 1 problem stemming from a number one fear (fear of rejection) coupled with the fact that most people are not trained in sales or are even interested in selling anything to anyone, it makes finding success a bit of a challenge. Even online success!

The next hurdle for many people looking for success online has to do with the fact that many are technically challenged when it comes to creating web pages, blogs, etc. You name it and there are hoards of people struggling to figure it all out.

The good news is that leads network marketing marketers need to survive and thrive with don’t require any of the aforementioned “stuff.”

Well, that’s not an entirely accurate statement. What I mean to say is that marketers don’t have to have incredible sales or technical skills and when you remove these obstacles, many can get going with much more confidence.

Back to the facebook lead generation technique.

How You Can Help

Let’s look at this whole marketing dilemma with a little bit of common sense.

If 95% or so of all marketers are struggling, it might be sort of easy to find people interested in what you have to offer if you become someone that provides a solution to the massive problem of lead generation.

Hmm…sort of takes “selling” out of the picture when you think about it. I mean, if all you have to do is send someone a message on fb, someone that is probably having difficulties with generating traffic or leads for their business, with a link that provides a simple method or a little information that will allow them to tap into the mighty leveraging power of the Internet to generate leads quickly and easily, you could probably find a little success in a very short period of time yourself.

Remember, this is only one way of providing help and this is the “free” way to do so. Other free methods include sending messages to people marketing on YouTube, twitter and other social accounts. People going to forums discussing different methods. People looking on craigslist or other free classified ad sites. The list is quite long.

Leads Network Marketing Businesses Will Never Run Out Of

While I’m a big fan of blogging, article marketing and video marketing (and I still get quite a number of leads using these methods) I think that the direct social marketing platform may be the way to go.

There are some specifics that you must get down, but once you learn the basic technique, you can use it over and over and over. The great thing is this technique is very simple, so most people will be able to duplicate it as well.

What is the technique? Using social media sites like facebook or google+ to track down folks with an interest in marketing or making money online and contacting them directly through that sites messaging feature. You still don’t bash people over the head with information, rather you set up a capture page that will direct someone to an ebook or a webinar or bootcamp, something that you can give away for free and something that will help people overcome a specific problem or give them specific training.

I go into this method in my 5 Day marketing boot camp, so make sure you sign up.

leads network marketing businesses Paid Advertising: Leads Network Marketing Professionals to Victory!

I’ve run a bit long in this blog post, so I’m not going to go into the paid techniques for finding leads…especially since many find quite a bit of success with the free facebook method. Why run away from a good thing?

I will create a new post soon though and I will get that information out to you. Until then, watch for my latest boot camp training and sign up. The information is packed with methods for creating traffic and leads including the facebook marketing method.

Leads, leads, leads network marketing professionals and others know that leads are the lifeblood of their business and once you learn to generate your own your business will take off as well.


Testing New Traffic Resources

This one is just an update as to what I am working on folks.

I’ve been working on trying to find good, strong traffic resources and not just any type of traffic either. I’m talking solo ads and using third party folks to generate traffic.

testing new traffic resourcesTraffic from China? No Good!

So here’s the deal. I’ve been going to fiverr.com in an effort to find someone over there that has a good traffic source, good for affiliate marketing and for marketing just about anything related to the internet marketing business and work from home niches.

Now these are tough categories in the first place and to be honest with you, five bucks is not a great deal of money to pay for any type of traffic whether it be from a good source or a not so good source.

The fiverr “gigs” that I have ordered so far –  this is a two day period – have produced over 6000 clicks to three different URLs.

I posted a link to a video, a buzzfeed post and an affiliate offer. I focused 2 solo ads on the affiliate offer and these 2 gigs brought me well over 3,200 clicks in a 24 hour period with NO SALES WHAT SO EVER!


Most of the traffic is from China and maybe even robotic. It’s like throwing five dollars out the window just because as this traffic will NEVER pan out.

Social Media Responses

I can’t really say that the other two gigs were any better. I got quite a number of responses, almost 1,800 clicks to my buzzfeed post, but I didn’t get any responses to my offer from here either. I suspect that much of this traffic was bot traffic.

Once again, this is a real bummer in terms of purchasing traffic/clicks and was equal to me just burning the money up with no results.

Testing New Traaffic ResourcesBack to the Drawing Board

I will never give up!

This is my mantra for the moment, because I know that I will find a good, inexpensive source of traffic out there somewhere. I just can’t believe all of the gigs on fiverr related to traffic are this poor, but I will be more vigilant in terms of who I purchase gigs from and how much research into these gigs I perform.

A second thing that I should mention is that I did not set up my own lead capture page to send any of this traffic to and I will be doing that with my All in One Profits splash page. I will create the splash page using the AIOP tools and will video everything including results good or bad.

Eventually, I suspect that we will find a decent source of traffic on fiverr and when that happens you will be the first to know!d


Making Money Online the Easy Way

Making Money Online Requires Listening, Learning and Realizing

Today I realized something about marketing and making money online the “easy” way…yep, even I, Mark “the Hard head” realized something today!

I say that I realized it, not learned it for a reason. I have heard over and over through the years about some of the methods and techniques that I was reintroduced to today and for whatever reason I have chosen not to take the plunge into using some of these methods.

The difference today is how this will effect not only me, but also all of the team members and the future prospects of the Elite Marketing Systems Group.

Don’t start thinking that all of the things I have been exposed to today is negative. On the contrary, much of the information that I have been re-introduced to is very positive because I know that it all works.

So why is there a problem at all? Why am I writing this post?

Because, while I’m ready to get out there and show people exactly how to implement marketing strategies, techniques and methods, I also want to make sure that students and members are getting the best and most up-to-date marketing methods available.

With all of that said, I’m letting everyone know that I will be putting the EMSG training on hold until I have the “Ultimate” training package put together and can show people how making money online the easy way is an actual statement of fact.

Stay tuned to this website and the Elite Marketing Systems Group website for updates and some awesome training videos coming up!
