Leveraging Your Time

You have available to you the concept of leveraging your time if you are in the network marketing business. A lot of network marketers never fully understand how to maximize this concept to build wealth.

It is when you enroll a new distributor that the basics of leveraging your time start. This is where you have the chance to duplicate your efforts. Whenever this new distributor spends time working on their business, they are also spending time working on your business.

So this is how you leverage your time without personally working harder. Therefore, it only stands to reason that the more people you have working for you in this capacity the more potential money you can make.

This is why so many people can get wealthy in network marketing and never work more than a few hours every week. To learn how to leverage your time to find the quality people to grow your business is the key.

Now, this is where the Internet really comes into play. By using Internet tools such as landing pages to capture contact information for future follow-up is a smart way to leverage your time.

Before the internet was around you would prospect and try to individually follow up with those people in person, via direct mail, or on the phone. Needless to say that was a very difficult way to build a network marketing business.

In this day and age you can build a large list to follow up with via email and then let an auto-responder handle all of the follow-up for you. Thanks to the internet it is possible to literally build a list of thousands of people and develop a network marketing business of thousands of people all online.

Now the real power of this however is when your downline of thousands of people are all duplicating the time you're putting in. Can you imagine how exciting it would be if you knew you had a thousand people in your group all building large email lists to follow up with of their own.

I am sure you can see that you literally can build wealth in network marketing and the concept of leveraging your time and that of your downline is what made it possible.

Quote of the Day

I was recently reminded of one of my favourite quotes and mentioned it in another post (can’t remember where, I must be at that age LOL) and is very relevant and is from the famous scientist Isaac Newton who said:-

"If it appears that I can see further it’s because I am standing on the shoulders of giants". He obviously felt somewhat humbled by others who had helped him and who he had learned from.

After the help I have received from SFI, PIPS and more recently the brilliant PPG mentors I can relate to that as at various stages of our lives we have all relied on help from friends, family and business colleagues who have allowed us to stand on their shoulders.

Great Second Income Idea

Work From Home Online - It Beats Having A Second Job

The poor economy has driven some people outside the home to take on a second job. However there are people who are lucky enough to work from home online.

There are many good things to working from home online and we will discuss a few of those in how they beat going outside of the home for a second job.

1. It is great to be able to work from the comfort of your own home. You don't have to get in your car and drive to a job or a second job.

Depending on where you have to drive to it this can be a big time savings. As the price of gas continues to rise, it can also be a big savings for you on gas every month.

2. You get to be your own boss when you work from home online. This is a lot of fun to do for people who are self motivated.

When you have a boss you may not always agree with them. Plus a boss is always bossing you around! This may sound strange but the reality is they are paid to do their job and you have to go along with what they say.

3. At a second job you're going to generally earn a small hourly rate. Many times this is no more than minimum wage.

Working from home online allows you to make as much money as you want. The Internet works 24 hours a day.

This means you can actually earn a very large hourly rate. Plus if you want to earn more money you can build more websites or add more products to the website you already have.

4. A second job can pull you away more from your family. When you work from home online you can schedule your own time to do family things.

Many people choose to work after the kids have gone to bed or in the morning before they wake up. Others prefer work long hours on the weekends and keep their week free for things that come up.

5. Oftentimes people have to take a second job that they really don't like. In certain areas there are not a lot of part-time jobs to choose from.

When you work from home online you can pick how you want to make money. Many people choose to start a blog and make money doing something they enjoy. The same thing is true with niche affiliate marketing.

As you can see to work from home online offers many benefits over having a second job outside of it. You can join millions of other people who are already doing it.

It Pays to Help Others

One way to promote you own website is to offer to help other website owners by giving away ebooks from you site for them to use on their own sites. Lots of people do not have the time or skills to write and create ebooks to give away to their web site visitors. Giving away ebooks from your web site can easily increase traffic and sales. You could produce promotional ebooks for other people to use so they can promote their web site.

First, you will need to write and create your own ebook to give away to your visitors. If you don't want to write one, you could ask permission to use another writers' articles or material. Be sure to include your text or banner at the beginning of the ebook. Once your ebook is uploaded to your web site you can allow people to download it and give it away to their web site visitors. Your ad will continue to be spread all over the internet.

You can take this strategy one step further to make it even more powerful. Allow people to sign-up to get a version of the ebook with their own text or banner ad included in it. With their own ad included in the ebook, they'll work harder to promote it. That means your ad will be seen by even more people. It's now a win/win situation for you and your visitors!

Lets Smile

Lets Smile

Smiling is infectious; you can catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too

I passed around a corner and someone saw my grin

When he smiled I realised Iʼd passed it on to him

I though about that smile then realised itʼs worth

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth

So when you feel a smile begin donʼt leave it undetected

Letʼs start an epidemic quick and get the world infected!
