However you can and will offer 10 steps to get rid of bad breath naturally. You see the difference.

2. Drive a stampede of traffic to you site.

Super affiliates are very conscious that only a fraction of their website visitors will click on their link and even a lesser number will buy. Knowing that they will play what we call the number game in the business. In a nutshell it goes like this: it takes about 500 visitors to your site to make a sale.

4. Use personal endorsement to add credibility to your product.

Super affiliates have work hard in gaining the trust of their customers or subscribers. As such they know that in return those people on their list will trust their advice and recommendation. They do capitalize on that. It is like recommending a movie to a friend. However those recommendation need to be crafted in such a way that it does not sound like they are tugging at the wallet of these potential buyers.

5. Focus on related product only on your website.

We have all seen those websites that looks like a toddler’s toy chest. The site is so busy and chaotic that is hard to tell if they are selling golf product or yoga courses. These websites cry out loud beginners. Their owners think that if they put as many affiliate product as possible into their cyberspace property they will make a lot of sale. Not so! On the other a super affiliate website is clean. Even if some has several products, they are all related. If it is a dog site, they have affiliate product related only to dog.

Super Affiliates are synonymous to testing. Testing is the only mean they have to improve their website conversion. They are never truly satisfied with the actual result. They are always testing different thing on their site. Every little thing is subject to testing. A comma can cause an increase in conversion and the only way to find out is by testing…

In Direct Sales – Ditch Your Frank List and Use Target Marketing

For most of us in Direct Sales, 10 new recruits equals a promotion – either for someone in our organization, or for ourselves. Sometimes it equals qualifications for a special incentive – perhaps a trip to some exotic locale, or maybe some designer jewelry.

Most of us, who follow the out-dated ideas that our upline offers have been spinning our wheels watching THEM earn trips and recognition, while we sit scratching our heads, wondering why we aren’t getting in on the action. I mean, after all, we’re doing exactly what they told us, exactly the way they told us to do it.

Is this happening to you?

Our upline said make a list of 100 people. Check.

Our upline said contact them all and ask them to “help” you get started. Check.

Our upline said it’s a numbers game, talk to everyone. Check.

Our upline said to stay away from running ads in the paper. Check.

Our upline said to do 3 way calls. Check

Our upline said bring our recruits to the opportunity meetings. Check.

Our upline said pass out 500 business cards each month. Check.

Is your team growing by leaps and bounds?

Our upline never told us to be an authority on our company’s best product (that would be YOU!).

Our upline never told us to market ourselves first, and the company second.

Our upline never presents us as the authority. They become the “guru” instead of us!

Our upline never told us we could use the Internet to build our businesses on autopilot.

It means you need to position yourself as the expert. Set yourself apart and start thinking and acting like a leader NOW. Change your mindset – even if you’ve been in the business for years, start thinking like a leader at the next pay level. Already at the top of your game? Great. Start thinking like the owner of your company.

By the way, YOU are the owner of your company. You have the best product to offer anyone – and that is YOU. You can’t get that product from any other company.

Christie Northrup, the Lemonaid Lady, is a champion of ditching the FRANK list. She talks about using “WILMA” instead:


Is a




Target marketing is the best way to see desirable results. The Shotgun methods still work, but the amount of time and energy you put into growing a business that way is, to me, excessive.

Let’s break down the numbers. ASSUMING you can buy 500 business cards for just the cost of shipping (there are online companies that run specials periodically), You’ve got a $10 investment in materials, plus the time it takes to deliver all of them. From here, we have to make a lot of assumptions:

Assume you give away 30 at every party (3 to each guest – who needs 3 business cards?)
Assume you have 8 parties per month (that’s pretty standard in Direct Sales)
Assume you give away 1 to every person you meet outside a party (that’s another 260 people each month)
Assume it takes 1 minutes to deliver each card outside a party (and really, you’re not building a relationship, you’re just shoving a card into their hand)
Assume a 1% conversion rate

You’re spending 4 hours each month just giving away cards, plus the additional 24 hours you’ve spent preparing and doing your parties. And I must reiterate – who really needs 3 of your business cards? More to the point, who’s going to TAKE 3 of your business cards?

And if you give away 6,000 cards each year, you’ve got 60 new leads (about 5 per month) that may book, buy or recruit. Most of those will probably come from your shows anyway, to be honest. For $120 in business card expenses (plus other show and travels costs) and 336 hours of your life. Each POTENTIAL lead costs you $2 and 5.6 hours of your life!

Is your head spinning yet?

Now if you really, truly have no other method of building your business, it’s a start. But I hope you realize that there are other, better options to growing your business. You could definitely be putting that time (and money) to better use elsewhere.

Find a niche and fill it.

In direct sales, there are targeted groups of prospects for every product line available. All you have to do is ASK your home office what the target demographic is for your direct selling company. If they can’t tell you, you’ve got bigger problems. If you sell kitchen tools, who it your target market? Men? Women? What about age, income, ethnic origin? The more you focus, the smaller your market will be.

Smaller market=bigger return on investment

If you invest your time and money wisely in your target market, you can easily bring your time and money cost to less than half of what you would have paid for the shotgun business card method.

Think of it this way, would it be wise for a retailer to send advertisements to everyone in an entire city, when all they sell is children’s clothing? Absolutely not! A better use of their advertising dollars would be to focus on places where there are mothers of children who want/need their kind of clothing. Moms buy the clothes, not the kids (in most cases), so it’s wise to find out where they buyers are.

Think about your product? Who are the most likely buyers? Yes, contrary to what your upline has told you, it IS okay to pre-judge. At least for now. Focus in on that market. You know where they are most likely to spend their money (with you!), now figure out where they are most likely to spend their time. Go there. Market yourself THERE.

You’ve heard it said before that parties/demos are the life blood of a direct sales business. Your most targeted market is right in front of you – in a semi-captive group. This is a place where you would NOT want to pre-judge. Everyone is there for a reason. That reason may be you.

Tips to Attain Financial Freedom

Financial freedom – a mere and simple 2 words and yet a complete statement in itself. A vision dreamt by most yet achieved by few. Many people believe that there is a secret mantra or that you need to possess something godly and unique to achieve the same. The question is, “Is there any level of truth to that statement”. Answer – a single syllable word NO. Like all other instances involving success, it just requires an out of the box thinking, commitment to it and hard work that shows itself.

What exactly is Financial Freedom?

In layman’s language, financial freedom is the ability of someone to work or not depending on his/her wish and still be able to provide more than enough for their family. Going a little technical, it means the state wherein a person does not have to depend on an external source of income or employment and still be able to provide sufficient wealth for a smooth functioning of both themselves and their families.

How to attain that freedom

The term “job satisfaction” is most certainly a good way to avoid the question of “Why you are at your current job”, but the reality is as small as 10% of people would prefer to choose job satisfaction over sitting in the comfort of your house and yourself being the one to decide if he wishes to work today or not. Also, there a handful of people who even like working let alone enjoy what they do. The question is how do you achieve the latter if you choose it?

Well, there are a lot of ways you can think of but all of them will take some time (provided you choose the right and ethical path to do so). All ideas are good enough to take you closer to your dreams, but they require perseverance, hard work and most of all the belief that if others can do it, so can you.

What to keep in mind

Before you go off gallivanting to chase your dreams, there are some things which need to be straightened out and sorted first. First of all, you need a foolproof plan and layout of what and most importantly HOW are you going to execute your plan. Secondly, do whatever you have thought of on the side. Don’t just quit your current job to tend to your dreams without thinking of future repercussions, because god forbid if your plan doesn’t work, all of your time and most importantly, money will be wasted – commodities that cannot be replaced at the pace at which they are lost.

Also, make sure that whatever you do, once it becomes a success, it should be the source of your happiness, not problems and worries. There are millions of people who have the money they always wanted but don’t have the peace of mind that is needed. There is always some variant of tension or troublesome thoughts that keeps circulating in their minds.

True that “money isn’t everything but without money there is nothing”. But what good is the money if you can’t take out time to spend with the people you love or for whom you went through so much pain and trouble. Think about all such things and go be financially independent!!

If you think there are very few opportunities to pave your way to financial independence, then my friend you are mistaken big time! Take out some time and research, and you will find thousands of ways to come up with something good. If you’re still struggling, check out []. They have some really unique and legit ways to make it big.
