Finding Success in 90 Days

90 days to mlm success90 Days to MLM Success

I don’t always write about network marketing, but I did write an article today about 90 days to mlm success based on the premise that you can succeed in the network marketing industry within a few short months.

I don’t necessarily think that 90 days is going to do be the end all and be all of online marketing, but I have found that in 60 to 90 days of consistent and persistent effort applied towards an mlm or some other online business model usually produces significant results that just about anyone can achieve…

…anyone that is willing to put forth the effort that is!

Why 90 days?

Why 90 days to mlm success, or any other success for that matter? I’m not sure what the deal is here, but 90 days seems to work very well with the search engines, especially google.

If you are producing videos about your business opportunity or your niche industry then 90 days will start to get you ranking very well within the YouTube community. Just something about that 90 day period.

How Does it Work?

You know what? I’m not sure how the whole 90 day thing works because I’m not a technical guy. Not technical and don’t want to be. I’m a doer and a guy who likes to build online opportunities up.

What I suspect is this:

  • Consistent effort is rewarded by Google whether it is with blogging, article marketing or video marketing. Google loves active websites and fresh content so your “stuff” rises in search engine ranking pages (serp’s)
  • 90 days seems to be a period of time where articles and videos start to get a lot of traction in terms of organic and maybe not-so-organic linking, which causes your content to rise in popularity and start to generate quite a bit of traffic and start building an audience.
  • 90 days of consistent effort is probably more than what 95% of all marketers will ever do so your brand becomes more and more known and “solid,” you are that marketer that people are seeing more and more of.

Online Success in 90 Days Not a Magical Secret

If you are serious about wanting to build a direct marketing business or a network marketing business online you can and you can do it – or at least lay down a solid foundation – in 90 days or so. Yep, maybe 78 days or possibly 111 days.

The key here is not to ever give up! Be consistent…be persistent. You WILL see results if you put forth the effort, develop the content and get out there and promote for 3 months.

If you aren’t willing to put forth that solid 90 day effort then I would have to say that you probably aren’t going to find success with anything out there. Dare to be different, dare to lead and dare to succeed.

See you at the top!


Free Internet Marketing Tools

free internet marketing toolsPromoting Your Business with Free Internet Marketing Tools

There are tons of free internet marketing tools online that you can use to promote just about any business online. The difficulty can be sorting through all of the tools out there and finding which ones actually work.

I have been using specific tools for a few years now and have had some pretty good results in terms of getting my blogs to rank well on the Google search engine.

What Are the Free Internet Marketing Tools That I Use

There are some specific tools that I use to generate traffic to my site and to get “things” out there on the Internet.

While I talk about free internet marketing tools, there are a couple that I do pay for, but the costs are ridiculously inexpensive.

For example, socialmonkee.com is a tool used for submitting bookmarks and costs $7 for a basic membership which will provide 750 potential backlinks to your sites. The $7 is a lifetime membership, so it’s a one time cost.

Another great tool for generating some quick leads is imautomator.com, which will also provide 25 links per submission. This tool costs me $4.99 per month and is also more than worth it.

Now, as far as the free internet marketing tools that I use, hootsuite.com is a fantastic tool for submitting to social media sites like facebook, linkedin and twitter.

Turning Web 2.0 Sites Marketing Tools

If you haven’t figured it out yet, YouTube and some of the other hosting sites out there can be fantastic tools for marketing (video marketing) as well as excellent research tools.

Squidoo is an excellent site for promoting an opportunity online and creating squidoo “lenses” takes just a bit of time and returns big results in terms of both potential prospects AND high page rank links  – squidoo currently has a page rank of 7!

Traditional Marketing Tools

While I know that article directories are not necessarily considered tools, there are free internet marketing tools like Free Article Submission Tool. This tool is a tracking tool that will help keep you organized as you manually submit your articles to different article directory sites helping you get the biggest bang for your buck!

Marketing online can be challenging, but once you learn how to become efficient and more importantly, effective, online marketing can be very satisfying. Using free internet marketing tools is just another way that you can promote your opportunities online and start generating income from home.

Do Safelists Work?

Do Safelists Work or Are They a Waste of Time?

You’ve seen the ads…send out thousands of emails every day to lists of people that have already opted into a site (usually double opt-in sites) and generate tons of traffic to your blog or website. Sounds great right? A low, low price and you receive tons of qualified traffic, right?

Not so fast…

The question is, do safelists work?

Yes, they can work, but more often than not you are going to find severe challenges with generating the leads you need to build your list and to build your business opportunity.

The main problem with safelists is that you really need to create something that has a “wow” factor to it and most new marketers don’t really know how to do that.

I don’t really like to waste time with safelists, although every so often I know of some marketers that do OK with specific lists.

My recommendation is to use methods that have been proven over and over and over again like article marketing, video marketing and the social media marketing methods that we teach at the Elite Marketing Systems Group.

For now, check out the video and make your decision from there.


Overcoming Negative Thinking

overcoming negative thinkingOvercoming Negative Thinking Improves the Quality of Life

Overcoming Negative thinking may be one of the best disciplines we can master as human beings. To say that negative thinking is a hindrance to your overall quality of life is a radical understatement. Negative thinking can be unhealthy and can one from enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

What’s worse is that most of us – if not all of us – experience negative thinking much more often that we should and overcoming negative thinking can do more for our general well-being and success

We all experience ups and downs in our daily lives and negative events that come along can send us spiraling into a “bad” mood, but learning how to recognize those times when we are starting to feel “down” and then having the mental discipline to stop that decent and change our feelings to something more positive is the trick.

So how do we insulate ourselves from negativity and what steps do we take to keep our thoughts positive, clear and focused about what is important to us?

In researching this particular blog post I came across a few good blog posts and articles online with some pretty good tips that I would like to share here.

Methods for Overcoming Negative Thinking

From the post at the blog “Inspired Every Moment” I found a few really good tips about overcoming negative thinking that I like. These tips came in two categories, tips that may help you to control negative thinking and exercises to help you “combat” negative thinking.

For controlling the negative thoughts:

  • Realizing and accepting that most challenges are temporary
  • Replacing negative thoughts with a positive one (positive thoughts are show to be 10x more powerful than negative ones!)
  • Fight fear or anxiety with action.
  • Inspire happiness – find and surround yourself with things that make you smile or laugh.
  • Cut out the material things that drain us of energy and happiness
  • Stop over-analyzing the situation. Immediately stop replaying the negative events in your mind.
  • Control what you can – remember you have a choice to choose a different thought.
  • Re-vamp your vocabulary and self-talk.
  • Focus on your feelings, be aware of them. Take a few moments out of each day to assess how you are feeling and adjust your feelings as needed with positive images and affirmations

Exercises to Combat Negative thinking:

  • Meditate!
  • Use affirmations. Write what you want (NOT WHAT YOU DO NOT WISH FOR) and repeat this many times in the morning and evening. You can repeat throughout the day as well, but make sure you start and end your day with positive affirmations. Visualize these desires as you say them aloud. Feel yourself receiving them already.
  • Become creative and use a vision board. Keep your goals and dreams in front of you.
  • Make a list of all of the positive things in your life. Being grateful will put you in the right frame of mind from the start.
  • Let it out! Write in a journal and get your feelings out there. Shout into a pillow (when no one is looking, of course!) and expel those negative thoughts and feelings from your body. Don’t hang on to them.
  • Wake up aware. When you first wake up in the morning, get in the habit of finding things to be thankful for…start off with the fact that you did wake up!

Overcoming Negative Thinking More Important Than Marketing Techniques?

While I talk about a lot of specific techniques and methods for marketing your business online here at my blog, I realize the need to start developing a category just for getting our minds right!

Learning to control your thoughts and overcoming negative thinking on a daily basis is a great start. Become disciplined, use these exercises and see if you don’t notice a difference within a week or so. You’ll be glad you did!
