Multilevel Marketing why is it so hard?
Have you heard this before? It seems like people do not understand the effort required to build a lasting residual income. I have likened MLM Marketing to planting seeds. To be successful you have to know how deep to plant and how much water is needed and how much nurturing they will need to grow.You also have to plant seeds every day again and again. Did you know that the top 1000 multilevel marketing income earners in the world make $25,000 to $1,000,000 per month? These people are making more than most of the doctors and lawyers in this country.
So why do most people who join a multilevel marketing company fail?
Using the analogy above it is because they grab a few seeds and throw them on the ground and stand over them and watch…and watch… and watch. Then after nothing happens they proclaim “See it doesn’t work”. If you were a farmer would you wait a few days and when you don’t see sprouts coming up decide to give up farming? Most of the reasons they do this and fail is because the truth about building an online multilevel marketing business was hidden from them. They were told that they didn’t have to do much. That they could go out and just get a person or two and then help them get two and everything else would take care of itself. Before they know it they would have hundreds in their down line and be making big checks. But it didn’t happen.
Multilevel Marketing is work but it doesn’t have to be Hard Work
The internet has made it much easier to reach out and find prospects and send information to them than ever before. Offline it was amazing to generate 20 to 30 leads a month. Online you can do more than that in a day. There are many leaders doing 50-100 leads a day and adding 3 or 4 new reps to their down line a day. What they have is a system.
Multilevel Marketing Lead Generation System
The leaders in Multilevel Marketing have proven systems that they use over and over and that are proven to work. They first drive traffic then turn that traffic to leads and then market to the leads until they are sales. Once you master this technique you will be able to promote any multilevel marketing company or affiliate program successfully. Find a successful group, join them and copy what they do.
So you have seen all the benefits of having a Blog and now you have one set up and are ready to make money from it. What is next?
For this article I will assume that you are already getting traffic. If not then please read my other posts on building traffic. Obviously you will need traffic to your Blog before you can sell anything from it.
The top ways to start earning some Blog Money:
- Affiliate Programs
- Accept Donations
- Your own product (Ebook etc)
- Training & Consulting
- Google Adwords
So lets go into each one and decide what is best for you and your blog to start earning some blog money.
Content – Some Bloggers make money by writing for other Blogs and/or syndicating content but the reason I put this one first is that having quality content that helps your readers is the most important thing you can do to earn money blogging. If your readers like you and relate to you and most of all begin to value your opinion then you have built a quality Blog. Do not underestimate your readers and think you can just post a bunch of PLR articles that have been all over the web or hire a cheap writing service to churn out keyword stuffed paragraphs and people will like your Blog.
Affiliate Programs – One of the most popular and easiest ways to make some blog money is to sign up for affiliate programs and earn commissions from the sales of any pass through clicks from your blog. This can be done easily with services like ClickBank and Rapbank. Make sure that the items listed on your site are related and valuable to your readers. It is best to sell things that you have personally used and can vouch for. You can even do a review of the product in one of your Blog posts.
Advertisement – If you have a good amount of traffic you can sell advertisement through services like BuySellAds and others. These services will help you charge a flat fee or a per click fee for ads being shown on your site. Depending on the traffic of your site you could easily earn a few hundred dollars a month in blog money from these alone. Choose your ads and how many you run carefully since your advertiser may show ads that do not fit your content or even worse from competitors.
Accept Donations – many Blogs overlook this and I think it has a valuable place in earning Blog Money. You can accept donations through PayPal and others to help fund your blog. This works best with blogs that offer a lot of free services and help to their readers. Again if you offer solutions and help to your readers they will be more willing to help you out by donating to the cause.
Your own Product – For those that have been blogging and establishing themselves as an expert in their field this is probably the one that makes them the most money. Top online marketers all have their own video course or eBook that solves a problem and/or offers training on a particular subject. You can have an introductory product such as an eBook for as little as $.95 and more in depth training materials for as much as $97. This can be delivered electronically very easily and you never have to get involved after you set up the materials and the processing system. Ejunkie is a very popular and easy to use way to sell downloadable products online.
Memberships – Membership sites can generate a lot of monthly income if you an ongoing service or training that offers a great deal of new and fresh value each month. The challenge will be to keep your members very happy with the value of the service and you can even set up your own affiliate program to pay them for referrals.
Training & Consulting – This goes back to having your own product or service but goes a little further. Perhaps you would like to offer personal training or a set of training videos with you in them. Good trainers and marketers charge upwards of $500 or more for in depth training and consulting. You should have established yourself as a leader in your field and have great testimonials to back it up.
Google Adwords – This one has been around a long time now and many people are very happy with their Adwords results. Google will place ads on your site and rotate them and then share in the revenue that those ads produce. Keep in mind that you want to control what kind of ads are displayed as much as you can since the Blog is your online reputation.
Word of caution: Do not make your Blog just a place for ads and loose what makes it unique. Let your personality come through and give your readers valuable content and the money will come. Some Blog owners just throw up a lot of ads and hope someone clicks on them. Your readers are looking for value in the content first and then if they like and trust you they will value your opinions and ads.
My Blog Suggestions:
You can get an already monetized blog with Empower Network and you can also get one set up at GoDaddy.com I suggest BOTH. Why, because your Empower Network Blog is already completely set up for you and can help you build a great income from referrals as you get paid 100% commissions and the GoDaddy Blog should be one that you grow and build over time to brand yourself online. Once you are experienced at Blogging then having your own branded Blog will help you establish your self as an expert in your niche.
Empower Network Pay Plan Explained
The Empower Network Pay Plan is actually a simple plan. You get paid 100% of the products and services of those you sponsor or of those coded to you. Let me explain: If someone, lets call him Joe, signs up and is actively paying for his Blog System then he will earn 100% of the payment for those who he sponsors in the Blog System in this manner. He will earn the commission on his First, Third, and Fifth personally sponsored person and will pass up his second, fourth, and sixth to his sponsor. After this he will only pass up every Fifth person.
Now hold on a minute you may say I have to pass up people? This is actually the BEST part. You see the Empower Network Pay Plan uses the power of leverage to increase your earnings faster. You have to pass up services but so does your down line. So using the example above, Joe sponsors his first rep Mary and he gets the 100% commission or $25 a month from Mary and when she sponsors her second, fourth and sixth reps, Joe gets paid his $25 a month for each. Now you see how fast income can build with the Empower Network Pay Plan.
It is really very exciting especially if you have been in pay plans that pay 5-15% of the sales. In many of these plans you will need to sponsor and sell quite a bit to just break even. With the Empower Network Pay Plan you break even after just ONE referral sale. Are you seeing the genius of the Empower Network Pay Plan yet?
So for just $25 a month you get a full featured Blog that is SEO optimized and monetized AND you get paid 100% commissions on those you refer to the system! Now there are other services available for you to sell that all work the same way and you can learn about them in detail after you sign up but this ONE service is worth getting started.
As a special bonus for anyone who joins my teams you will have access to the Empower Network University for free. This is where we post the tips and tricks we use daily. Oh and by the way, one of the top money earners in Empower Network, designed this website and allows us to see exactly what he does each month to earn $40,000 plus. You see you just have to find someone successful and o exactly what they do until you get the same results.

Your success in MLM will depend on the amount of training you get and the motivation you have. No one can do it for you and no company, no matter what is promised, will build success for you. The motivation must come within but the training can be acquired.
Some MLM marketing training is company specific but many times the best training comes from leaders of multiple companies that can share not only their stories of success but more importantly exactly HOW they did it. If a successful online marketer can show you exactly how he/she achieved that success then you can do the simplest thing and just copy what they did. No reason to reinvent the wheel. Find a successful marketer and copy what they do. Especially if the successful marketer achieved success in more than one MLM company. To me this is the sign of someone you should follow and emulate.
Unlike times in the past when getting everyone you could to a meeting was the goal, now your marketing should be focused online. Online you can reach the most people and you can do so in a much more efficient manner. You can easily filter leads to spend your time only with those that are serious. So now you can give up dragging friends and family to a meeting. Now you can advertise both free and cost efficiently and as leads come in you can follow up with automated emails to decide who is willing to do what it takes to succeed and then ALLOW them to work with you. I say allow because now you are being pursued by eager people wanting MLM marketing training and are ready to get to work.
If your company and or sponsor is not encouraging you to market online then you are being left behind. The leaders in most any company are leveraging their time by using online marketing. MLM marketing training will take your business further and faster. You will need capture pages along with a great follow up system that is automated so you do not have to spend all of your time emailing and calling people unless they are serious.
You can search Google for automated lead generation and follow up systems to help your business. If you are in MLM a few are listed here.

Vegetables and More Money? What?
So what do vegetables have to do with this? Is your mom watching you Blog and asking if you ate your vegetables? She might be, but what I am really talking about is online farming.
Imagine for a moment that you had money seeds and all you had to do was plant them in your yard and watch them grow into money plants. How many seeds would you plant? Would you plant five or ten seeds? How about 100 seeds? I think you would plant as many as you could get your hands on. Why? Well obviously the more seeds you plant the bigger your harvest will eventually become.
This is very true about marketing online!
Farming will make you rich. The problem for many people is that they hunt instead. They take out their biggest gun and they look for a prospect and they shoot 10 times and hope they “get em”. Farming is much slower and takes a lot more work repeated every day. You don’t even see the seeds come up for a while but when you do start seeing the plants come up you will see a lot of them.
Now of course just like farming you can’t just throw the seeds on the ground. You have to have a plan. You have to decide what you want to grow (your target market) and how much water, fertilizer, and sun (step by step training) they will need. You will need a system in place. If you have a sprinkler system (Auto Responder) then you know the plants will get nutrients even when you are not around (time freedom for you).
We have so much great technology today that you do not need to plant one seed at a time. With a great system in place you can plant and cultivate many seeds at once all online and all on autopilot. So just imagine that you have all these money plants growing right in your back yard and you don’t even have to go out in the hot sun to get the money. All you have to do is take care of people and treat them like the valuable asset they are. If you help them find solutions that THEY need instead of what YOU need then you will have built valuable relationships online for life. Relationships that will also pay you over and over again.
The system I use to farm online is MLSP (My lead System Pro) because it helps to capture attention, capture leads, provide training, and nurture my plants. On top of all that you get paid a commission for referrals. Now that will help your farming. Try it today for 2 weeks for just $10
Great Farming !
