What really counts as SPAM?

Someone asked this question and thought I would share my opinion on this.

The world of social media has opened a whole new world for businesses and marketing. It has been a huge benefit for business owners and marketers but we have seen an increase of SPAM. We used to get tons of SPAM emails and then our JUNK folders came along and filtered out the good, the bad and the ugly. Now with Facebook, Twitter and other great social media sites, we are dealing with SPAM.

BUT what is SPAM? What do you think it is?

I believe SPAM is anything that is unsolicited that is sent to you, posted on your wall or in a post. Always ask yourself “would I want to receive this, read this or see this?” If the answer is no, don’t send it.

Also, stop posting and posting your business, comp plan and everything on your personal page. I know you are excited!! I am glad you are excited!! But not everyone wants to see it and you could get blocked. My opinion is 1/8 ratio; post personal, motivational, questions and every 8th post, say something about your business.

Watch this video and let me know what you think? Do you agree? Did I miss any?

Small Business Fact: When you don’t work You don’t get paid

Here is a quick video about small business owners and the truth about working and getting paid. I was chatting with my friend and fellow small business owner who just got over a terrible illness that lasted over 10 days which meant she did not work for 11 straight days.

The truth of small business owners is “If you don’t work, you do not get paid” If you are sick, go on vacation, have sick kids, have sick clients, you don’t get paid. This is the disadvantage of small businesses.

But when you love what you do, like I do – My personal training and healthy living coach business is my passion, you work around these snags of income. What about if you get injured and cannot teach or train, your pay check and bills will feel it.

This is why I love Network Marketing, Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing. It provides you with RESIDUAL INCOME.

Would you join someone’s team so they join your team?

After speaking with some of my networking friends, we were talking about Business Swapping. “I’ll join your business under you, you join my business under me”

Do you see any problems with this? Is it a favour or a good idea?

What is the endgame? Whats the purpose of it?

I do not believe it is the best way to work a business. Supporting other products, tools or courses is a great way to help a person out BUT joining another company just to help someone else, is not a good suggestion.

Watch the video to see why…..

Have you had success or a good experience with this ‘swapping” – I would love to hear about it. Please comment below and let me know.

MLM Success Tip – Setting Up Your Presentation

I have had many questions about setting up your presentation to a potential prospect. “What do I say” is the top question.

In this video I walk about the 3 step set up which includes:
1. Your WHY
2. Big Deal All In
3. With or Without You (Don’t care)

When you start your meeting off with these 3 and then use your company tool for the presentation, you will have great success.

Be honest, be raw and truthful. Be genuine and you will have great success.

Here is the blog post on really figuring out your why:

2. Rich Dad Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki
3. The Thank You Economy – Gary Vaynerchuk
4. Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Business Tip – Share in Others Success

I love being on Facebook and seeing all my networking friends having great success. I comment and say congrats to their team and their business. I am not negative or make excuses on why they did something well and I did not.

I was speaking with a networking friend of mine and we were talking about her success and the success of some of the people in her business. It was great to see other companies in our industry of Direct Sales/Networking Marketing doing so well. We need to celebrate with others on their success.

Watch the video to hear my views on why this is important.
