How do I make money and where does it come from?

I almost forgot to post this blog! It really has been a busy past couple of weeks!

So, how EXACTLY do I make any money and where am I making it?

Good Questions!

Reality-Networkers Awesome group networking site that offers a 5x6 matrix as well as huge networking rewards. The goal of RN is to achieve Level 4. At Level 4 you can take your entire downline with you to the businesses you're trying to promote. It's a very effective way to gain referrals and trust at the same time. These people are like family! This was my first online business involvement ever and I'm still receiving money.

Global NPN Awesome, awesome site that offers the BEST marketing tips, advertising features and monthly residual income on the net. I LOVE NPN! 

F5M Club One of the best business I've ever gotten involved with! F5M has been around for over 17 years and has been paying daily since. It's only a $5 sign up to begin and their prospecting and automated systems are great. It's a very good beginners business!

I also belong to several traffic exchanges. I don't make a lot of money with these but they do occasionally buy a nice pair of shoes or handbag once every 2 months.

So, how much have I made? Over the course of a few years, I've made more than $50K but less than $75K. I think my average 'salary' is around $30-40K a year. 

It's been enough for me to quit my day job. :)

Birthdays, Broken Noses and Businesses! Oh my!

Yesterday was my daughter's 1st birthday. It amazing how quickly she's growing up. She's her own little person, Lil Miss Attitude, and she, as well as everyone else, knows it. :)

My 10 year old broke his nose at school last week and we've been going between doctors and specialists. He's doing well and will be getting his splint off tomorrow. (He's really looking forward to it.)

I apologize for my time away but family always come first. Without family, nothing else matters really.

Now let's talk BUSINESS!

A business will only become a business if you treat it as such! Too many times, I have watched other get gung-ho on a project only to quit 2 weeks later becuse the money wasn't rolling in.

Guess what? It isn't going to just roll in!

You have to work to have wealth. The only different between working a j-o-b and working at home is that we marketers at home work smarter and not harder. We don't stick out our necks for a boss who is only out for himself.

We invest the time in our business, grow our lists, and network with other marketers.

In my business, I push it a little more and ask that everyone work together as group so we ALL move forward. I'm a firm believer in leaving no one behind.

If my sponsor had left me behind, I would have NEVER MADE IT my first year.

It's overwhelming as a newbie, isn't it?

There are good sponsors and mentors to help get YOU going. You just need to reach out and find the right one. If you don't mesh with your mentor, don't be afraid to seek out another. This is YOUR business, YOUR baby.

In closing, investing time and effort in your business will get you there. Be patient and always hungry to develop.

To Your Success!

Traffic Exchange Sites

So, tell me what you think about traffic exchange sites?

Personally, I'm all for TES but there are so many and it's quite hard to keep track of them all, isn't it?

The easiest way to keep track of all your TES, passwords, and referral links is Excel. If you don't use Excel, you're really wasting time. Go! Learn to use it. Now! You'll thank me later. :)

Also, make sure you're utilizing your ad trackers. I use Global NPN for my tracking system because I can view all my ads and I know exactly what ads are bringing in the most conversions. I love this program because it enables me to tweak what I know needs to be tweaked.

If you're not using an ad tracking system, get one now. It's the only way you're going to know what's actually working for you.

If you're unsure of how to even use an ad tracker, let me know and I'll personally help you.

32 Referrals in 1 day! Go team go!

Just a short little diddy... I'd like to congratulate my team on a job well done. 32 sign ups in 1 day!

How did we do it?

I think our overall approach is the best. We make sure our prospects know exactly what our program is and the ins and outs before they make a commitment. You see, when you decide you want to make your online income a reality, you really have to understand what you're offering to others and how it benefits them.

Are you going to buy something from me just because I tell you it's the newest, most awesome thing ever? (I certainly hope not!)

So many times we've gained new team members simply because their previous sponsors weren't communicating and they were left wallowing through a big mess after spending tons of money. They were sold on the sales pitch but knew nothing about the product and how it benefited them.

It really saddens me that so many get burned simply because others make a quick buck. Work together and we all can achieve more. There's much more harmony. Way to go team!!

So you wanna market yourself or something? My tips!

First, ask yourself these 7 questions.

1) Who am I? Be different! Who's going to buy from Joe Schmoe down the way that lives in a white house like everyone else? Now, I'm not saying tie-dye your house, start doing naked yoga in your front yard, or go shopping with your pet goat but make yourself unique. Stand out! Show some pizazz!

2) What am I peddling? What are you pushing that's so special?

3) Why should someone join my downline? Don't lie to yourself or anyone else! No one likes a liar and it'll make your momma cry. It'll also make you lose your downline before you even get your first click through.

4) What resources (aside from info located in the program) can I offer to my downline? Are you available 24/7? Email or phone support? Group meetings?

5) Do I love my computer and am I ready to lose sleep? You're gonna lose sleep and you're gonna spend a lot of time with your computer. I'm not lying here. The average newbie does NOT get rich quick over night or over the course of a week or two. It takes time to build your downline, develop your partners, and become successful. The results will pay off though.

6) What's my goal or end result? Are you trying to retire or just pay a couple of upcoming bill? Knowing your goal is key because that's what's gonna push you.

7) Do I have what it takes? This is the kicker. Do you have the drive to make it? Can you forfeit sleep, family time, social stimulation? You're gonna have to. 

In order to be successful in this business you have to do quite a bit of leg work in the beginning. I averaged 3-4hrs of sleep (or whenever I could) in the beginning and my husband referred to my laptop as my other man.

 The rewards are great if you have the drive and ability to get the ball in motion. If you want some more insight, send me a message. I won't try to sell you anything.

This blog was set up with the intention of offering help to those testing the waters. I will occasionally advertise but you are in no way obligated to buy or view anything.

Next blog post: How much have I really made and where do I make it. I think you'll be shocked and amused.
