Here’s what my clients tell me, and I get it. Almost on the daily, they stare at their screen, spinning their wheels trying to figure out what to share on social media to create SOMETHING - a like, a comment, some interest, a Direct Message, maybe, and wow, a sale or signup would be nice.
Right? Is this you?
You ponder, write, edit, delete, and repeat.
And nothing ever gets out there. Or, at least not consistently and not content that pulls people to you.
And, you HATE how overwhelming and time consuming it is for you.
You’ve purchased content calendars to give you prompts, and you start, then stop because it's starting to feel so…forced, so generic, so stale, even.
You’ve probably even fallen into the trap of copying someone else’s content, maybe your upline or someone in your company, because it worked for them; it inspired you,...
How I discovered it, what I did with that when I lost my why how I got it back and where I am today.
When I started my network marketing journey, maybe, much like you I was asked by my upline and told in my training to "write down my why..."
I started to work on my "why!"
But the reality of it is, I was very confused about what that really meant. What's my why?
When I started my network marketing business, I just wanted to make a lot of money. I wanted to create lifestyle freedom. I wanted to create time freedom.
I wanted to stop looking at the cost of everything before making decisions.
Most of all I wanted to make sure that I could stay home full time with my children. That was absolutely my top my number one goal.
My guess is you can probably relate to the idea of having more money, creating more money in your life. So that was a big part of it.
When I first started my network marketing career, my husband...
Social media isn’t selling. It requires you to be SOCIAL.
Posting with the “Spray and Pray” process does NOT work.
Do you know the best way to get others interested in you? Be interested in them. TRULY engaged and interested.
Are you liking, and more importantly commenting in an engaging way, and having real conversations with people you enjoy talking to; and who might be a perfect fit for you.
Be real, be you, and don’t be graspy and loaded with an agenda in your conversations.
Just connect and get to know people.
Pick 10 people a day to engage with. Track it.
Be consistent. They will begin to see your posts.
This is how the algorithm works. Engage with them first. Get on their radar as well as Instagram or Facebook.
Try it for a month and let me know how it goes....
New year, new thoughts, new hopes and dreams. So, what is it about goals and goal setting that deserves our time and attention?And, why can this very thought and process derail us?
THAT is today’s show topic!
It’s human nature to always have hope, possibility, and expect the potential of what might be!
I want to dive into goals, goal setting, the fears we have around this process, and what we really must know about goals.
One of my favorite quotes is by Jim Rohn, on goals -
The true power and success in setting a goal is the transformation, growth and learning you accomplish on the way to achieving it.
We covered this on last week’s show, on Success Planning.
The challenge with most goal setting.
Random thought of what we want.
No true planning before.
No planning for actually achieving it.
And, 365 days stretching ahead of us.
I hear you, you are ready to kick 2020 to the curb and have so much more in 2021?
So, let’s do it.
1st, Create a crystal clear vision for your business and the lifestyle you want to create through your business. The why is the most important part of the whole equation. It doesn’t matter what type of entrepreneur you study - real estate, internet marketer, network marketer, inventor, author/speaker - and so on - the key elements to success are the same. Your back ground and your past history and experiences also have NOTHING to do with your ability to have success, so get over it. If you are allowing these things to interfere, you are doing this by CHOICE and not by chance. Most of the time, it’s a crutch we hold onto for some reason.
2nd, know your plan - I mean it this time. Write out your daily marketing plan and do it. Take steps daily, and invest in your education, refuse...
My greatest reward from my network marketing business is the ability I had (and still have) to be there for and with my children. Even though they are both grown and gone and my son is a father himself, I never lose sight of the pure joy that brought to me, and the peaceful world it gave them to grow up in.
Just a few weeks back, I was able to move a few things in my schedule and meet my daughter in New York City for 5 days, staying in a penthouse apartment 35 floors up, overlooking the Hudson, with the Statue of Liberty beckoning to me every morning and every night, right out the window.
My business didn’t stop. It didn’t need to. I have set things up so that I have a truly laptop life and business,
Corporate America could never offer me that.
In my opinion, there is no better time or option right now than network marketing. In my opinion, and...
Do you know how to effectively introduce yourself in a way that creates instant impact, curiosity and interest?
Far too many network marketers like to use their company name as a way of explaining what they do. I hear this a lot:
I do Arbonne. I’m with Herbalife. I am Team Beach Body.
Do you fall into this trap?
First, no one cares about your company or product names. In most cases, these names mean nothing to them. And, you miss a chance to make a connection when you fail to introduce yourself and what you do effectively.
There is one thing that is always on your prospect’s mind, even subconsciously and they is - WHAT’s in it for me.
What do you do, and how would it benefit me?
You’re likely having that thought too, when you meet people.
Right now, with everything going on, people are scrolling social media. They are...
Feeling challenged about what to share on Social Media that actually creates interest? Stops people from scrolling and starts a conversation with likes, comments and shares? Let’s talk about this in today’s show.
Get my video training on this process - how to write compelling copy and content that gets people to stop scrolling, read, engage and want to know more about you, grab it at -
This will make more sense as you actually go through it and I’m not just talking at you.
Are you struggling with keeping your business alive during Covid? Finding new people who are interested; and building true connection with them in the crowded space of Social Media?
Struggling to be seen.
Attract your ideal clients, ready to pay and join?
I see you. I know you. I get you.
I've been in that struggle, too.
Just like you, I wanted more for myself. More for my family. More for our future.
Other People’s Opinions are one of the most common things that hold us back. Keep us stuck. Keep us making up stories about other people.
We have deep fears about what others think and say about us. And, why is this? Do they pay our bills? Feed us? Care for our children? Are they really spending as much time thinking about us as we like to think that they are?
Do you spend much time thinking about and judging what others are doing?
Why? Or why not?
We spend a heck of a lot of time “thinking” that other people are thinking things about us. Most of the time, we “think” that their thoughts about us are negative.
Here’s a little secret - other people aren’t thinking about you as much as you think they are. People don’t spend that much time thinking outside of themselves and their own situation. Do you?
And even if...
We have fears; we are uncertain; we are not feeling up for the task and so we procrastinate.
When you are feeling the urge to put off, or procrastinate what you know are the tasks that will move you forward in your network marketing business, STOP.
Take 3 deep breaths. Just try it.
Ask you breathe, clear your mind. Bring your thoughts to your breathing and then ask -
Why am I procrastinating or avoiding the action steps that I know will move my business forward?
Be very open to what comes up for you. Your mind will always seek to give you the answer. The key is for us to dial in and really listen. HEAR what the answer is.
Write it down and analyze it. Ask yourself - why? Why is this stopping me? Why am I allowing this to hold me back from pursuing my goals? My hopes? My dreams?
Is it a person? Who is it? Why do they matter? Is it their...
