Five Key Leadership Attributes

As I’ve progressed in my entrepreneurial journey, and take time to study what makes the people who make totally life changing kinds of income and create awesome lifestyles for them and there families, I’m struck with the realization that they all possess five key attributes which they’ve turned into habits.

The good news is since you’re reading this, you can now choose to study and apply these traits as well!

Five Key Leadership Attributes

  • Take time daily for visualization and meditation on your goals
  • Spend the majority of your working hours on income producing activities
  • Invest time daily in personal development
  • Mastermind with other leaders every day
  • Cultivate the expectation of leadership from all you associate with.

I know many who read this, will say hogwash, I don’t need to do those things to succeed

Well, I’ve talked to a lot of millionaires, and I can promise you this is not all unicorn and rainbows. Study, master and apply these five habits and you’ll see results like you’ve never seen before!

The Conscience of a Libertarian

Wayne Allyn Root has just released his blockbuster NEW book: “The Conscience of a Libertarian.” In fact, Barnes & Noble Book Store has chosen to special display the book at over 300 book stores across the United States starting this week.

Andrew J. Cass had a chance to catch Wayne for a great interview in his home about this explosive book release.

Working With the Law of Averages

In any marketing that you do, either offline, or online, certain ratios begin to develop. These ratios allow you to plan, test and tweak your marketing message.

For example, on a good lead capture page for the MLM niche, you should expect to have to send between 5 to 10 visitors to your page to convert a visitor into a lead (10% – 20% conversion rate). Depending on traffic source, I have a landing page that converts as well as 50%, and another that converts just under 10%.

But the point is, once you have driven enough traffic to any point in your sales and marketing funnel, you should be able to predict and scale your efforts to produce what ever results you want.

Here’s the catch, though, and it has to do with statistics, but I’ll avoid the detailed technical stuff.

Let’s say the fundemental (meaning millions of visitors ratio) conversion rate on your landing page is 10%.  When you are sending your traffic to your page, you may not see a single conversion with 10 visitors, or even 20 visitors. Then again you may see 5.  The numbers are just too small to start to see what the fundemental conversion rate is.

They are good to watch, but until you have at least 3 times the number you think you need, the real ratio may not be revealing itself, so don’t panic (or get too excited).  My baseline for my landing pages is at least 10% conversion, so for me this metric means I don’t even start to get an idea of the peformance until about 30 visitors; and then as more time progresses I get a better and better feel.

This is law of averages and it takes large numbers to know what they are.

Dominating PPC

My favorite marketing method by far is Google Adwords.  I’ve used it for the past several months, and really kicked it up a notch when I jumped on the pre-launch of a training program offered by Mike Dillard’s PPC guru, Jim Yaghi.

I applied what I learned from the training and now routinely generate 25-40 leads each and every day for my business, and here’s the best part, I do it for FREE!

The program called PPC Domination is released the public today and I highly recommend it to everyone serious about generating and never end supply of free leads on the internet.

Mastering the art of generating leads on Google is a must have skill. Look at all the top internet network marketers and you’ll find them on Google. The PPC Domination training will bring up to speed fast, and avoid the costly pitfalls that many have when venturing onto G without the help of a mentor!

Thinking Things Done

Is it time to start achieving your goals instead of just setting them? Then be sure to watch and apply what you learn in this short 10 minute video. This is powerful stuff that will help you make 2009 your best year EVER

Using Social Media Correctly

I see SO many people using social media wrong, it drives me crazy. You know sites like twitter, facebook, myspace and youtube to name just a few.

So if you’re just learning how to use these sites to build your business, I want to share a video from one of the most brilliant marketers alive, Perry Belcher who has MASTERED this relm.

He’ll give you the perfect approach when it comes to using social community sites to grow your business. If you’re using ANY of these sites, watch this video, and say “thanks Perry!”.

It’s 100% pure content.

Stop Bugging Your Family and Friends…

If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Hey there, this is David Hanson from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I want to thank you for investing a few minutes of your time with me today.

Now chances are good youve landed on my website because you are already involved in network marketing. In fact, you may even be struggling I know this because over 97% of people who start in our industry never make more money than they invest.

What a shame!

Today, what I’d like to do is to share with you some vital information that literally turned my network marketing career around instantly, and it can do the same for you as well.

But first, a little about me.

Ive been in network marketing for over eight years now, and I struggled when I started out, I was taught to go talk to friends and family invite them to home partied, drop sizzle cards all over town, put up flyers, and when those things didnt work to go buy some way over priced leads and cold call them.

What a waste of time.

What I had going for me however was a burning desire to succeed, so I went on a quest to find to use technology like the internet and websites like myspace, facebook and twitter. I invested over five thousand dollars over the past several months in training classes and online ebooks, and finally have discovered the secret recipe to succeeding in MLM online.

As soon as I applied what I learned, my business started to explode, and went from making less than what I was paying in autoship to creating a full time residual income in a few short months working less than I ever did with the old school techniques.

And it was a lot more fun too.

So if youre sick of bugging friends and family and wasting a fortune on worthless leads, then simply visit, and Ill share with you the instant access to the exact MLM Success Truth for you to create the same kinds of results.

Expect Success!

If Their Lips are Moving…..


Over the last 3-4 years, Wall Street placed bets on risky debt obligations called derivatives. Now, trillions of dollars in losses are hitting Main Street right between the eyes. We just lost another 159,000 jobs this month, the most in five years, and it’s clear that we face the most serious recession in over 25 years.


On Wall Street, those masters of the universe with the obscene bonuses to prove it have been taken down by their own idiotic inventions. The top five firms on Wall Street were thought to be “too big to fail.” But Bear Stearns is gone, Lehman Brothers is gone, Merrill was forced to sell out, and the last big names, J.P. Morgan and Goldman, have waved the white flag and petitioned the government to allow them to become ordinary deposit taking banks…amazing.


How bad will this get? Well, listen to what our top leaders have lied to us about over the last 5 years. “FED Chairman Alan Greenspan relaxed about house prices…this is not a bubble of any magnitude” reported the Financial Times in 2005. “Most negatives in housing are probably behind us…” Greenspan said in October 2006. “We believe the effect of the troubles in the subprime sector…will be likely limited…” said Ben Bernanke in March 2007. It’s “not a serious problem…I think it’s going to be largely contained,” added Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson in April 2007. Every word they’ve said so far has been 180 degrees from the truth.


 Now, these same people are telling us that they will save capitalism from itself with this $700 Billion bailout. For the last 15 years, the U.S. money supply has grown about twice as fast as GDP. Federal government liabilities, meanwhile, have grown three times as fast. As a result, the USA now has 30% more financial obligations than assets. It is, effectively, bankrupt. This year’s US government deficit will add about half a trillion. The US trade deficit is about $700 billion. The U.S. bailout plan will probably cost at least $1 trillion more. Where will the government get that kind of money? Everything is at risk now. The economy, jobs, housing prices…essentially our way of life.


However, we see this as an enormous opportunity. For those that have been prepared for this crisis…the smart money….this is exactly when huge fortunes are made. Generational fortunes. Great values will be had in the next 1-2 years in real estate and the stock market, and this is when lasting legacies are created. We will be at the front of the line to take advantage of them.

The Proper Way to Use MLM Genealogy Leads

I’ve been struck by the absolute laziness of networkers again lately. It seems there’s another new voice broadcast system out that promises to make recruiting a huge organization at the push of the button a reality… yeah right.

They are mostly selling the “system” to do these broadcasts in some kind of modified 1-up or 2-up system and those unsuspecting prey are lead to believe they will be rolling in the dough in multiple streams of income, since you can use the same system to build your primary business later on… after you’ve recouped your system investment.

I’ve heard that before (remember Gold Calling?)

The problem with these systems are they way over priced, and you can get the same thing done for way less… especially if all you want to do is leave a voice mail message. So what if they are provided with a couple million genealogy leads, you can get free mlm downline reports online. Even if you wanted to have a live transfer of a prospect that listened to the pitch, you can get this for on a couple dollars per transfer.

Why pay the huge setup fee?

But that’s not the worst part about these systems… effective prospecting and recruiting requires live contact. Leaving voice mail messages and expecting people to call back or visit your website is not rational thinking. Yeah, some will, but the vast majority will just ignore your message.

You see, a live personal touch is required to pique their interest enough so that they want to go visit your website. That is the only purpose of your first contact, and if you are on the phone with a prospect for more than 30 seconds, you’re doing something wrong. The bottom line is you need to keep your initial pitch professional, quick, and fun. If you do it right, more than half the folks will agree to look at your website. Anything less than 25% means your pitch needs to be worked on.

Of course, only a percentage of you yes’s will follow through and look at your information, but here too if you’re doing it right at least half of them will. Much less than that and more work on that initial contact is required.

The fact of the matter is, MLM genealogy leads are your target market. They have at one time spent money on some kind of opportunity, which means there is a very good chance that they will join another, if approached properly and if the timing is right.

So get your self some genealogy leads, follow our professional and simple calling script and get to work!

Marketing For Network Marketing Lacks Solid Marketing

People getting into network marketing don’t know how to market their business. They most likely join a new program every few months praying that they will get it. These folks do not know that doing their business the old way does not really work well, and their fantastic new program is not really interested in teaching great marketing principles. But you can control your marketing. This article will reveal to you some of the problems in the industry plus a proven marketing way to get your business started.

Today is very hard to make your MLM business work with the old ways. The first thing that you hear when you join a program is to begin your list of 100 to 200 names. The second thing you hear is that you got to get on the phone and ring all of those folks. Your friends have gotten those telephone calls before so they get a little wary of your offer.

Then you start feeling dejected because of the dismal response from your list. You decide to ring your sponsor because if anyone can resolve the problem it would be her. She tells you to keep going and that it will get better. Does that sound like fun? No – it’s a horrible situation to find yourself in. That’s why many folks quit. Then you get an idea and you turn to the company for some help. This makes things worse.

Network marketing companies have the worst marketing as an industry. Sure they count on their independent representatives to sell their program but they do not provide any great marketing training. Seriously check out any MLM company web site and you’ll come away confused. It’s like their web site suffers from multiple personalities. Companies are more worried about branding and having their independent representatives follow company policy than real marketing.

Today you can apply twenty first century marketing to your MLM business and stop being a dejected distributor. Because an easy way to market your program is to blog about it. Blogging is a great way to discuss your business and people are able to leave comments to your postings. It’s easy to put up a blog and discuss the benefits of your program. Sending someone to read the program web page is a waste of time but you can discuss your story in a blog.

Starting a proven marketing plan today for your network marketing business will get you better results than using your MLM company and upline’s old MLM techniques. It’s easy to start a proven marketing plan that will not leave you in the NFL (No Friends Left) club. As a matter of fact you can create a blog for free and discuss your program and get the benefits of twenty first century marketing techniques.
