Is Social Selling Hard?
That’s just a thought, and here is my answer to it after being asked this in my Street Smart Wealth Academy.
How is your social selling?
Do you consider it to be easy, or challenging?
It can be time consuming, for sure. I'm here, 21 years later after taking my business online and it WAS time consuming to learn it. To master it.
And, ALL of that is just a thought. It will be time consuming for some, and snap of the fingers for others. It's a choice, in other words.
I was old school, too, and I was SICK of old school. I made the decision and committed to learning this new skill set and it totally changed my life. It's what I wanted and what I was seeking.
I was tired of:
Family Friends/Warm Market
Business Cards on Windshields
Talking to “everyone” - waiters and such
Networking groups - small kids
I wanted to become the...
We all have a Super Power. Maybe more than one. When you figure out what yours is, then you can use that to your advantage. It’s a strength.
Do a personal inventory to explore what you are really good at.
For me, I am super strong in understanding and mastering my thoughts and mindset. I have tools I use daily and in turn, teach these to my clients so we can work them out of the areas they are stuck - I’m not good enough, who will listen to me; I’m afraid of the camera for social media….and so on.
I am also really good at messaging and story telling, so I use this to create my social media content, and teach the same to my clients.
We all have powerful stories inside of us and from our past. Stories that will resonate deeply and allow us to easily, effortlessly and elegantly attract our tribe to us.
What are those things you are...
You’re going to have Critics, Haters and Trolls. I call how you handle these:
Defining Moments In Your Network Marketing Business
We tend to think that we get more of these once we start a business of our own:
Any type of Entrepreneurial endeavor.
But, we all have them - Critics, Haters, shamers and Trolls - no matter what we do. We just become more aware of them when we launch a business.
We see them on Social Media, trolling others. And, often our fear is just a made up story.
Today, I want to share my biggest defining moment. The day I felt so humiliated that I wasn’t sure I was going to stick with it.
If you’ve ever asked what it takes for someone to go from stuck to stardom in Network Marketing…
Here are a few of my defining moments
1. Realization that the airline industry is NOT stable...
This is a question I ask myself each morning and then I ask the universe to put those right people in my path.
Chaos brings opportunity - and what I mean by that is this - there are all different points in time when someone is looking for what I offer, and what you offer.
For me, someone believes deeply in network marketing, social selling and the power in the business system.
But, they are tired of struggling to figure things out. They are missing the key knowledge and business action plan they need for success.
They are told by their upline to just “talk to more people; copy and paste this; get a bigger why.”
I know from personal experience that these are not the problems and the solution won’t be found there.
I’m looking each day for those who are looking for me.
Who is looking for you? What is their challenge...
What is the difference between Push and Pull Marketing? How do we not become that annoying person online with our friends and family and connections?
We build our brand, following and clients by attracting people to us. That is Pull Marketing, where we attract others to us through the fun, value, educational, entertaining content we share online.
Pull Marketing is Attraction Marketing, and the ideal way to grow your business, and your tribe, creating new warm market online.
Push marketing is when you are constantly pushing your marketing at people.
Offline, it is stuffing your business card into the hands of others, along with brochures and information about what you are selling. Billboard and magazine marketing is also push marketing, but we expect it in media content forms.
Online, we can get more annoyed as we don’t expect people, our family and friends to be constantly pushing their...
What truly Duplicates in network marketing? There are only 2 things, all the rest are Myths our profession has spoken of, and confused many people with.
The first and most important thing that duplicates is mindset. Belief, and learning to let go of self limiting, self sabotaging beliefs. PERIOD.
You can’t out earn your limiting thoughts and beliefs about yourself. You can, however, overcome them. This does not mean fear and doubt goes away completely. Ever, for anyone.
Once you have the tools and training to push through them, to evaluate them for what they are - just a made up story - then you will see things change. Quickly and dramatically.
The second thing that duplicates, in network marketing, are the systems in place for sharing how the business works. Most companies have these tools in place. Simple, and short is better. People do not need to...
What do we DO about money?
MONEY - it’s a thing right?
And, a struggle in some way for many. It sure was for me for years.
I want to share an episode that I recorded for insight timer, and to share a funny story. Funny, as in strange and odd to me.
This submission was declined because they are unsure how the word MONEY fits with spirituality.
Hmmmmmm - and we wonder why so many have an issue with money. A highly evolved, mindset conscious group and movement over there, and they clearly have fears and limiting beliefs around money.
I can use the words prosperity, abundance and wealth, but not MONEY!
I would love to know YOUR thoughts on that. DM me on instagram @jackieulmer
In the meantime, give a listen and see what comes out of this for you.
Many of us struggle with money; our thoughts and feelings about money; negative money programming. Let's shift our relationship with money by...
Ever heard that? Or feared hearing it?
Why do people say this, and even more important, why do we fear it?
Run from it?
Do you know what the best response is to that question? There are two, really.
The first is to simply ASK - what do you mean by a pyramid scheme?
Then shut up. I mean it - close your mouth and wait, as long as it takes, for an answer.
If the response is something negative, here are two responses -
First, you could say - do you really think I would get involved with something like that, and then share it with others?
And, again, just listen.
Or, you can SAY - wow, that is way too smart for me to put something like that together.
And, again, wait and see what comes next.
The most important thing you can do is keep your posture. Stay strong and in control.
You've probably heard it before - the Money is in the Follow Up.
And, Follow Up is so much easier with a list!

It’s a word, that usually has a thought or two with it.
What comes to mind for you?
That you’ve failed? It’s done? Over? No chance for redemption?
Are there other emotions that come up with that word?
What if we simply reframe the way we see and think about that word.
Common analogy - when a baby learns to walk, or starts to learn, we don’t give up on her when she tries those first steps and falls to her knees. No, we cheer for her, pick her back up and immediately encourage her to try again.
Why is it different in your network marketing business? With a prospect? Someone who says no?
It’s not. You are just choosing to make it mean far more than what it is -
Simply a chance to learn, grow and get better.
You’ve probably heard - Fail your way to success.
You’ve probably heard that from some people who have done just...
