Part 4 of Series – Getting Traffic to Your New Blog and Your Work From Home Business Site…………

Hey guys, Robert Here. Hope you are having a good beginning week.

This is our 4 series out of 5 on how to be successful at blogging and what steps you need to take to do so.

What I want to talk today about is getting traffic to your blog.

IMPORTANT : This is a long post but please read it carefully and read all of it. Even if you have to break up your reading at 2 different times. You will NOT regret it !! ūüôā

Let me get one thing straight here guys. You can have the sharpest looking blog with all the bells and whistles and the best topic to blog about…….but if you do not have traffic going to that blog then all this stuff means NOTHING !

Getting Traffic is the lifeline of your blog. It supplies the blood to your blog to keep it going and put some profit under your belt. And if you want a work from home business it’s a must !

So lets get right into it.


SEO(on page) РIt stands for Search Engine Optimization and in my opinion is the most effective and important way to get laser  targeted traffic from eager buyers who want to purchase from you. From the git go with my Blogging career it has made me the most money bar none !

With SEO you work on getting your blog higher up in the Search Engines so eventually you get to page one or better yet to the number one position period ! when you get to the number one position for a high traffic keyword you are getting closer to having a real work from home business, no question !

It does take work because you have to target every individual Keyword phrase and work on them one at a time. (for instance if you have an Acne blog you may way to rank for ‘ how to clear acne’, ‘cures for acne’, ‘clear acne’ , ‘home remedies for acne ‘, ‘natural cures for acne’, ‘remedies for acne’ etc..etc..

It can seem like a daunting task to rank for each KY individually  but as time goes on you will see that Google automatically ranks you for KYs that you did not necessarily target.

There are two components in doing SEO.

1. On page SEO

2. Off page SEO


On page SEO  is where you optimize each and every post for Google to crawl and rank in the Search Engines. Do this by writing really incredible , unique content that will catch the eyes of google and  visitors alike.

When doing on page SEO you need to have the Keyword you are trying to rank for in the Title, a couple times in the beginning of the post ,couple times the middle , and couple times at the end . You can also bold the KY to get more attention and let Google be able to easier understand what the Post is about. ( so as to categorize  your work from home business site in the Search Engines) Be sure to NOT over stuff your Keywords in each post. Make it look natural and flow easily for the reader.

Make sure  with your WordPress blog that you have ALL in One SEO plugin installed and activated to really optimize your whole blog.

Also maybe this is common sense but in a blog try to stick with one general topic and one only. You do not want to have a blog about Acne and also talk about home repairs. This will not be effective.

One last thing is to be sure that you hyper link to inner pages and also to your homepage. What do I mean by this ?? Linking is the simple process of linking from one page to another. You know, when you see a word or phrases that is highlighted or even underlined and you click on it and it will take you to another page or site. (Google ‘how to make a hyperlink ‘ to learn how to exactly do this.)

This is called linking within your Blog. And doing this within your blog gives you added strength too all those pages and will give more google juice to rank higher in the search engines !

Offline SEO (off Page) – Hey folks this is where all the fun can really begin :>) Doing Search Engine Optimazation off page basically comes down to getting QUALITY backlinks from other QUALITY Sites.

Noticed how I said QUALITY. Google looks highly upon other Sites that have high PR ( page rank) and seem to do everything correctly for the most part. Each time they point to your blog with a Link it is like getting a popularity vote in your favor which Google recognizes and gives you credit for your WORK FROM HOME BUSINESS  Site .

Here are a few of my favorite ways in getting back links :

PRODUCING EXCELLENT CONTENT  that other site owners will naturally link to you

GUEST BLOGGING  which is right now one of the best ways to get great backlinks and also get quality traffic from the visitors of that site who come thru the link to visit your site.

BLOG COMMENTING¬† is when you go to another Blog and make a comment about that person’s blog in a very relevant and interesting manner while leaving your Link.

LINKING AMONG SEVERAL RELATED BLOGS YOU OWN ¬† is a good and quick way to get some back links. Just make sure you do not over do this because Google looks down on ‘Link Farms’ which is where people do produce 100s of short, aimless blogs just to inter link !!

ARTICLE MARKETING (1) at places like Ezine Articles and Go articles is a great way to get quality backlinks and get some direct traffic.

FORUM SIGNATURES  is also another good way I have found to get some backlinks. Just go to a forum and put up some quality posts there that are helpful with a backlink leading back to your blog in your signature.

SOCIAL BOOK MARKETING¬† is yet another good way to get some decent backlinks. Places to get back links are from Digg and Delicios. To find services that can automate this just google ‘services that do social bookmarking’

Back linking in general can be very time consuming and tedious. You can always outsource for people to do this. But I  MUST stress please do not go with a service that is going to blast out 10,000 links to forums or blog commenting at a work from home business site . They are worthless. Believe me  I tried it and learned  better !

It will definitely hurt your chances of having a successful work at home business !

There are some services where you can pay but pay pretty big to get some quality back links like .educ or .govt sites. These are highly sought after.

WARNING, WARNING¬† – Strictly relying on SEO for traffic to your blog can be dangerous. Mainly because you are relying on Google and¬† Yahoo for all your traffic. And this can fluctuate wildly. And sometimes you can suffer penalties like ‘Penguin’ and ‘Panda’ which were names for changes in Google’s way in ranking Sites. It literally took away the traffic and the earnings overnight¬† from many sites. And It has been devastating to many site owners. Be sure to capture leads and build a list so you can be safe from these penalties !!

ARTICLE MARKETING (2) РArticle Marketing the second way can be a very valuable way of getting traffic to your Blog. I know at I have personal friends who make easily over $100K from their  work from home business  using this technique. But trust me just like anything you have to be some work into it.

Basically, you sign up for an account at . Start writing articles that pertain to your blog topic. After awhile check the amount of Publishers who have taken your articles and used it as syndicate material on their own sites. After this you can contact them and ask if they would like a fresh, original, and unique article written for their blog. Ask for a back link for your work. You keep doing and you start building a group of syndicates who you write for on a continued basis, Many will have a large amount of visitors and they will read your article and go to the link that leads to your Blog.

The best thing is to have them sign up to your  list and build up a relationship with them and eventually gain their trust and sell them quality product they need with email marketing.

Once again this type of Article Marketing can be very, very profitable if you do it right. Just check out out this LINK at Warrior forum that is very valuable in showing how to do article marketing and be very successful at it and what it entails ! (particular note Alexa Smith and also MYOB here because they are experts who do this full time and are highly successful ; you might need to scroll down in the Thread to see them)

SOCIAL MEDIA – Lets face it everyone and their mother is on Facebook and Twitter. Places like this and Youtube videos are excellent ways to promote your business and these videos in of itself have made a perfect work from home business for many. Especially if you are into Network Affiliate Marketing. Connecting to others is a must.

But any business can get some great exposure on these Social Media Sites. As you get more traffic to your blog you can start building up exposure at a Fan Page at Facebook ( use business account). It can be very useful and you can earn and become profitable at these outlets. Personally, I am concentrating more and more in this area because of the potential !!


PPC-This stands for ‘Pay per Click’. This is Googles bread and butter and how they make so much money and why their stock is over $800 ūüėČ Personally when I started my Blog 5 years ago I went with PPC. With Google it is known as Adwords. You have to sign up with Adwords at . Once you have secured an account you bid on Keywords to get placed in the search engines. If you go to the google search engine you¬† can key in any keyword and those Adword advertise listings will be at the very right. Those are people who bid and pay to be there. Whereas the middle part of the Search engine, those are people who¬† built up SEO (usually over time)¬† and were placed there for free.

I had some success with PPC but it does take a lot of money to learn the ropes with Adwords and many people go broke trying to figure it out. My suggestion ? If you want to get your feet wet with Adwords if you join right now I know they have a coupon for $100 that you can use to try it out.

Solo Ads– With Solo Ads you can pay as low as a few dollars a month to put your Banner ad on someone else s similar blog or in a forum that relates to your blog.¬† This can be very effective ,and a I know a few people who make a full time work from home business doing this way of¬† Marketing. I would advice the banner to lead to a specific product ( whether it be your own or a an affiliate product such as a Clickbank one) ,but you can use your WordPress blog as a landing page ( a page that promotes your specific product) The one I use is a prime example. The post at top remains there at all times. I do this with¬† WordPress plugin called ‘sticky’. When you set up your WP blog go to Admin. dashboard and then go to plugins. Simply enter ‘sticky’ as a search then you will have the ability to install this and activate this cool feature !!

These are a few of my favs . There are a number of other ways but for most people these will put you on the right track to getting that all important traffic.  And ultimately making it a very rewarding work from Home business blog !

The main thing with traffic is to diversify among some of the ones I have mentioned.

And to ensure long term viability of your blog you need to  build a List with a capture box somewhere on your Blog. Like I said earlier I use which I believe is the most reliable email service. It is $19 a month but if you are serious about making a home business with your Site you should acquire this.


I hope this has helped you in your quest to build a successful money making blog ( and a potentially  full time work from home business ). It is not easy but definitely doable with time and work.


In  part 5 of the series I will wrap up our discussion on blog building and briefly talk about some of the mistakes many make make and some that you could make if you are not careful.

So stay tuned as I will have that completed by the end of this week !


Have a good one,







Part 3 of Series : How to Monetize Your Blog to Make a Successful Business from Home !

Okay, now that you have your WordPress Blog set up what now?

Well, of course you want to have your topic chosen (that can make some money) and you to need start a few (Original) Posts to get your feet wet.

At this point if you want to make it a successful business from home you are going to have to have something on your blog that will get people to follow some sort of call to action. Action that will start putting some change in your pockets.

After all, we have already decided you want to make some money from this blog right? If you don’t then I ask you respectfully exit. But if you do here are some things you need to know and do.

One of the first things I did with my first two blogs was to make some good original content then went straight to Google and opened up an Adsense account. Now you have to be approved by Google for Adsense,and I have heard it is tougher to do so than when I started 5 years ago.

Just make sure to write some decent content( posts)for at least a month before you mosey offer to Google and get your Adsense account approved.

What is Adsense you say? Simply said its when Google places some of their Advertiser’s Ads on your page and when any of your traffic clicks on one of these Ads you get paid! Not when they buy something but you get paid just when they only click on the Ads.

This can be quite lucrative as I have gotten $6 and $7 clicks. Some people have made Adsense a business from home in of itself.

But be careful to not try to game this system because once Google bans your account it is permanent!!

Other forms of monetizing I use and you can too on your Blog include CPA offers, Affiliate Marketing Products, Amazon, GPT Sites, List Building, and creating your own product.

– CPA Offers are banners on your Blog that people click on and sign up or pay for a specific product or service.

For instance, one Site I have has done really well with CPA offers centered around survey sites. Basically, my traffic clicks on the banner joins a survey site and I get $2 to $5 for each signup.

One of the best CPA groups I belong to is They have some of the best CPA offers to put on your Site.

– Affiliate Marketing involves actual products ( usually informational, digital ones) that you are paid a commission when someone buys it. is a popular affiliate Company where you can find thousands of products to sell on your Site and you will get a very nice commission.

People do make selling Click Bank products their sole foundation for building a solid business from home!

So for instance, if you have a weight loss site you could join Clickbank and find dozens upon dozens of programs to put and earn money from on your blog from people who want to lose weight.

– Amazon Products is another form of Monetization you might want to consider selling on your Blog. Amazon has literally millions of hard products from jewelry to tractors to tvs to books. The payout on commissions are not as high (around %6) as traditional Affiliate products like on Clickbank, but they are typically easier to sell to your targeted traffic.

Many internet Marketers and Bloggers make a full time living from just selling Amazon to their traffic alone. It can make a very good business from home!

NOTE: I believe though there are a few states that if you live in you cannot be a Amazon affiliate with. So you need to check into that.

– GPT Sites are one of my favorite forms of monetization on my own blogs and can assist in making a highly successful business from home .
Okay, there are two I specifically like,and I will go more in detail in my free newsletter to you. But GPT sites are sites where you make money by filling out free offers, daily surveys, and best of all you can make money with their referral system.

For example one of my favorites is called Fusioncash. This GPT site has been around for years and their referral system is great. You get $1 for every signup and another $2 when they complete their first free offer. And get this, for that referral you will get $5 for Life every time they cash out (which is at $25)

Believe me it can add up. But I would consider it more of a supplemental income and not a true business from home in of itself!

– List Building is something people always say “the money is in the list’. It really is a great way to ramp up you earnings if you do it right. You can set up an auto responder capture box in the left hand corner of your Blog and capture names and emails that way. Offer a free report or free e course in exchange for their name and email.

Many people build up a list of over 10,000 people or more and when you do this you build up a truthful dialogue with them and you can continue to make money on a ongoing basis.

– Create your own product is probably the most lucrative way of monetization you can do. Like E- Books and other informational products.

I would suggest that you monetize with the other ones I mentioned before above; before you get into creating your own products.

But down the road you can start selling your own product at clickbank and also have other affiliate marketers selling that one product you created on their Sites.

See how that works. There is huge money in this and believe me you can make a highly successful business from home doing it.

But for now stick with what I have talked about above. You do not want to half hardheartedly put out a crummy e -book together and waste a lot of time and money!

For me if I had to choose one out of all these different ways to monetize I would have to go with Adsense, although many might disagree! It has been a sensational way to make business from home.

It has made me much money!!

In part 4 will be talking about how to get traffic to your Blog.

So stay tuned,

Part 2 in Series – Setting up a Word Press Blog to Start Your Legitimate Home Business

I remember when I was younger I worked at a company that was based around yellow page advertising. It was a cushy inside sales position as I pretty much only had to renew other businesses advertising in the yellow pages they had in the previous year. I did it from the comfort of a cubicle. It was easy money,no make that very easy money ! As close to a legitimate home business there is !

However, I remember boss man came in one day and turned our lives up side down. He said in addition to renewing advertising for customers in the past it was demanded we had to actually go out and do selling in the field to drum up new business !!
Wow what a darn bummer. We ached and moaned about this new change. And I actually thought about leaving and starting my own legitimate home business !

But you know happened after awhile ? We found the whole situation produced much more money in our pockets. And we actually became enamored with the fact of meeting customers face to face and coming up with solutions for them!

There is a reason I bring this scenario up. When building up an Authority blog you can go the easy route and build a blog using the platform like blogger blog or you can put a little time and work and build a platform like WordPress and come out way ahead both financially and with much satisfaction and make it a legitimate home business if you want ! :>)

So here are the Steps to getting your WordPress blog started and why it is necessary to have WordPress :
– All your content is owned by you. With blogger blog your content is owned by google
– Google and Yahoo just love WordPress Blogs and all the formats associated it. So search engines tend to rate them high .
– Word press is really easy to use. And the plugins at wordpress are awesome to utilize. And endless at that!
– Capturing leads are so much easier to than a free blogging platform

Okay all this is great. But how do actually set up a WordPress blog ?

– First, you need to get a domain name. I would settle on one that fits the description of what your blog is about. A lot of people debate back and forth with this. Some say you should brand your name and try to put your name as the domain. I do not subscribe to this notion.

If you strive to get people to click on your Site in the search engines do you think they will click on first or ? I bet on the latter one . And is especially critical if you want to have a successful legitimate home business But it is up to you.

Remember, you can still brand your name in the Title of the blog and all throughout the blog to get name recognition .

Anyway, a great place to register your domain is Namecheap. I started with GoDaddy and their price increases from year to year were just too much.

– Now after you got your Domain then you need to get some hosting for your Blog. (Like I said WordPress is the place to go for the reasons I stated above.)
And the hosting you get should be Hostgator. IMHO, it is far and above anything else. I pay $9.95 for pretty much unlimited hosting. Sometimes they have special promotion where you can get Hosting there for $4 a month. Having a successful legitimate home business you need something as affordable and reliable as possible , and hostgator does just that!

Now that you have gotten your Hosting with Hostgator you need to go into and log into their c-panel. You need to go to the bottom left and copy the two name server fields.

Then go back to your Namecheap back office and put (or replace ) the nameserver fields there with Hostgator name servers. Now you have your new domain pointing directly back at your hostgator account. (It make take a day or so to actually go thru)

Now just go back to your Hostgator back office and down at the bottom under Software/Services area push the icon ‘Fantistico De Luxe.

Then you will see the Word Press icon to choose on the left side. Click on it and it is pretty much self explanatory from there. You will make up a password, username. etc…

After all this push finished and BINGO you have created your first Word Press Blog.

It can take up to 24 hrs. before you can put your domain in the browser and see the new blog. It usually has been just a few hours before I can see my new Blog with the default theme. Some people it has taken longer.

Then when you can see your new blog sign into the Admin. And here you will see the Dashboard. The best thing to do (which I did) was play around with it and by trial and error you will start learning how to efficiently navigate in the Dashboard.

One awesome thing about WordPress is they have thousands of plugins you can use to make your Blog better. Things like social interactive and SEO plugins.

I think two plugins you need to first install are the ‘All in One SEO’ plugin and the ‘Askimet’ plugin. Akismet will keep all the spam out and the other will help optimize your blog for search engines.

These plugins have proven to be critical for me in my legitimate home business !

Oh yeah another important thing is the theme of your blog and how it looks. Just go under ‘Appearance’ and you will see the Options to install. It is real easy.

So see its not that complicated to set up a WordPress blog. You did it, so pat your self on the back ūüôā

And off you go and start posting to your heart’s content in your new WP blog ūüėČ

BTW, if you have your own legitimate home business you have put yourself in a fantastic position with WP !

Part 1 of 5 Series – Setting up a Blog and Monetizing it can be one of the Best Work From Home Businesses !

Hey folks. Rob here. Just want to briefly give you a few tips on a simple way to have one of the your own Work From Home Businesses ! Notice how I said simple.
Now there is a big difference between simple and being easy. Blogging and making money is not necessarily easy. It takes some time and some persistently. But the concept is pretty down right easy. And if you have made it to my Blog here, chances are you can do this thing and make some money.

So in the next 5 posts of my Blog I will give you the exact run down on how I got into blogging and started making some nice income for many years now.

First of all, you need to ask yourself what exactly are you wanting to do with your Blogging. Is it going to be just a part time home business or something you really want to go all out and make it a full time gig ?? This is really important because it will determine the dynamics of your Blogging………… like the hours you put in, the frequency you blog, the amount of outsourcing you want to do, the amount of money you want to invest etc..etc… But there is no doubt about it it can be one of the really good work from home businesses !

Once you determine that then you need to decide what in the heck you want to blog about ?? Gardening, Dating, Weight Loss, Acne, Hair loss, house repair, car repair, speaking a foreign language, stock market and the list can really go on.

I think you should pick something that you have a lot of knowledge about and have passion for. The reason is you want to be a an Authority and build an Authority site. Make it a Site that people cannot resist to come and get incredible content from.

(NOTE : Make sure the topic you blog about gets enough traffic per month to make it worthwhile your time and investment. For instance, how to tame skunk and make it a pet might not be advisable because there is probably little traffic for that topic and thus it might be considered on of the worst work from home businesses you could have! Go to use the Google Adwords tool to see how much traffic a particular Keyword gets. You have to sign up for an account to be able to use this very useful tool. It shows the breakdown of all searches for every topic you can think of. Always make sure you blog about a topic that has at least 1,000 searches a month. I will go into this in more detail later on.)

Over deliver in your Content and you can also post videos about yourself and the knowledge you have.

Just make sure you pick a Niche that you can literally write effectively for about the 10 years to come. Really !! Google rewards Site as they get older and they place these Sites higher in the Search Engines which means more traffic and ultimately more money in your pocket and you will now see that it can be one of the really quality work from home businesses !

Once you have decided what you want to Blog about you can set up a free blog at !! I did this when I first started , however I would think about this for a second. It is much better to have your own hosting at a place like WordPress. You really cannot beat WordPress. If you are really serious about having one of the ‘primo’ work from homes businesses around then consider it.

And I will be talking in detail in the next few posts on how to go about this and setting up your WordPress blog.

For now , think about what you know and what you can blog about and come up with ideas on high you can make people interested in the content you have.

Next post we will be talking about how to step by step set up your WordPress blog. Followed by Monetizing your Blog and doing SEO and building Lists to maximize your profits.

Guys I am here for you and hope to help you having one of the most lucrative work from home businesses ;so do not hesitate to call me or email me at


What the Hell is Going through Your Mind When You Neglect Your ‘Warm List’ for Building Up a Network Marketing Business

Hey folks I hope you all are having a good one. I know I am looking forward to a good weekend with family and friends. It is always such a joy to interact with them and hang out with them.

And this brings a very important topic I want to present to you. It has to do towards building a successful Network Marketing Business and something many of you should take heed of.

I know with the popularity of social media (like Twitter, You Tube, and Facebook,) Network Marketers want to dive in and have ALL their focus on getting new associates utilizing these outlets !

Well, of course many of us know this is a great way to build a Networking Marketing Business. However, I would definitely NOT put all your EGGS in just social media.

Just let me take you down yesteryear back 20, 30, 40 years ago. I remember an influx of distributors with Amway, Herbalife, Shakelys and others who became millionaires and multiple 6 digit figure earners year after year after year.

People from the outside shook their heads wondering how they did it. Was it luck and just being at the right place at the right time ? Or maybe these people were at the top of the hierarchy and made money from all those below ?

I will answer this with a resounding NO !! You know how these Amway soldiers made their millions ? From good ole hard work by networking with family members, friends, co workers, Pta associates, church members, and literally anyone who could breath and eat.
Yeah you know the ones at the old strip malls who handed out flyers to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who was in the parking lot going to their car.

These people grew humongous down lines. They helped their personal sponsors in developing their own down lines. And trained them to do the same etc..etc.. This was truly building a business from the grass roots up !

And their was no internet back then. Just neighborhood Tupper Ware parties and Water filtration systems set up at local grocery stores.

These people were troopers and it all started with one person telling the other person on the street that he might want to take a look at this product and its income opportunity !

To me that is pretty darn powerful , and I think more of us should not turn our back on this seemingly archaic but actually quite effective way in building our Network Marketing Business ūüėČ

Cheers to those guys who blazed the trail for us Network Marketers in the 21st century !! ūüôā



P.S. And guys this is a very important P.S. ! At least have 20 to 30% of your personal sponsored affiliates be from your ‘Warm List’ ! Think about it. If many people do not know how to market a business online then how will that be duplicatable for Joe the pizza guy who has no computer ? Let him know he can do this working with his ‘Warm List’ just like you did.

Here are Two Kinds of People Who Almost Always Fail Even in the Top Network Marketing Companies !

Okay, recently I was getting off a conference call with the Founder and CEO of a pretty darn good Network Marketing Company. Actually one of the top network marketing companies around. One of the things he stressed on this call is not to use the word ‘spill over’ in any way ,shape, or form !

You know what I guys I completely agree with this notion.

And this leads up to something I want to expound on.

Here are three  kinds of people who for the most part will not make it in Network Marketing and historically almost never do.

1. The first type is what I call the ‘temporary go getter’. Yeah, he is the guy who is so psyched to have join the new network marketing company. He goes out and contacts his friends, family, co workers, church friends and everyone who pretty much has a blood pressure. After a few weeks he scratches his head because he has brought in zero associates into his Organization and has made a big goose egg financially.

After this ho hum performance he deems this type of business not feasible or not duplicatable and consequently throws in the towel for good.

So let us rewind this back¬† a second. This person has given this biz 3 or 4 weeks and he puts a lid on it ??¬† Is he crazy considering the fact most conventional businesses take over 2 years to see a profit. Sure this is not a conventional business but do NOT dare for a second¬† think that Overnight riches will happen to you even in the top network marketing companies. It Won’t !! It takes time and work to see results and you need to sow before you reap.

2. The second kind of person I refer to as the ‘wave rider’. He or she joins an Network Marketing Organization with the perception that there could be some so called spill over into his or down line down line. ( many upline members make deceitful promises that this will happen to them). He or she refuses to do much work and just waits for that lucrative spill over to occur in his or her¬† down line only to be disappointed when it does not happen. I have seen this scenario over and over again. People think that others will spill over from the top and be automatically put into their down line with no work. Folks, 99% of the time it will not happen.

3. Finally, the person who has little chance of having success is one that ask question after question about the program, product, compensation etc..etc.. They seem leery of the Company and no matter what you do they continue to have this mindset. Finally, after tugging back and forth in their head they join as an associate albeit grudgingly and are nothing more than dead weight. Their negative attitudes from the git go are their demise , and it is almost better that they not join in your down line because as I said they are useless weight.

This business is tough. Even in the top networking marketing companies ! You can have a huge down line of Associates in your Organization. But that is no indication or guarantee that you will have huge Success in the future.

Your best bet is to work to find those few hidden gems just like pearls in a oyster. If you get 3 or 4 individuals that have your vision and mindset about the Company and its Products and the same work ethic then you can really go a long way in this business !!


Finding a Network Marketing Company that Fits Your Needs Can be a Hell of a Task……So Take Your Time and Do Not Rush into Things !

You know in this day and age it is so tempting to be sucked into the glitzy get rich world of business offline and in particular online. There are are just so many scams out there that can really suck the time and money from you if you are not careful.


So Network Marketing is one genre of business that is notorious for schemes and scams. Unfortunately there has been numerous network marketing companies over the years that have just made it a habit of scamming people out of money and wasting their time and work. They have followed the ‘good ole boys club’ mentality¬† where the first in are the first out and as they go out they carry off all the riches for themselves. And the ones left go home licking their blood filled wounds.

There was one back in the early 90s and it involved a scheme where people used Faxes to get their next lists of people they were to pay $50 to. It was a period scam but the newsletter (product) strangely was half decent. The Founder spent some time in jail for it.

Anyway, I think one good measure you should ask yourself when thinking about joining a network marketing company is how much can you afford to lose. In other wards if you have a few hundred bucks to play with and then  you lose it and consequently it has not adverse effects on your finances; then have at it !

I have been in the Stock market for quite sometime. And guys I can tell you one important thing that I always keep in mind. And this was engrained into my head by my dad. That is do NOT spend money you cant afford to lose. Just don’t !! It will send you in a downward spiral if you do.

Even if the network marketing company you are joining is seemingly on the up and up and has great products and great support just do not get in over your heads. It is as simple as that.

I know of some Network Marketing companies that push newbies to join the highest level in the Organization. Something like the presidential level in one I know of. It is like $3,500 to get to that level. And you get to reap huge commissions ( and technically it is illegal)

Now do you have $3,500 to lose and think nothing of it ?? Personally I do not. Maybe Bill Gates can ūüėČ

But you really have to think of this  as a huge factor if you are playing with the notion of joining a network marketing company.

Ask yourself is it a good fit for you. Are the products something you can get excited about and sell to retailers ( not just people in your Organization )?

Do you have a long term vision of growing with this MLM and helping others grow along with it.

Just do not get in over your heads with your finances and ask others around what their experience is with this company.

And you just might find a Network Marketing Company that is a good fit for you !!






To Those Who Say They Cannot Make A Living from the Top MLM Companies ? Well, You Can Do It Part Time for Sure !

Lets face it every person who joins a network marketing company is not going to be wildly successful and make 6 figure digits every month. It does not matter if it is one of the Top MLM Companies around, mathematically it is improbable that  everyone will be doing this business full time.

That being said I believe there is a distinct possibility that with some effort and time anyone can make some nice, consistent part time money. Especially with the Top MLM Companies.

Here are three variables or reasons why I think anyone can earn a part time income doing MLM :

1. If you really have a solid product/products that is the backbone of the MLM then you can sell the product to retail customers who really just love the product in of itself. I know there are plenty of network marketing companies that many people do this with. It is straight retail and with companies like Nu Skin or Herbalife you can make some income just by selling the stuff to friends, family , co workers, and even get it accepted into retail stores and get customers that way. Think of a product that even your grandma might buy ūüėČ

2.  Just build a huge down line with one of the Top MLM Companies. It takes some time and effort but it can be done. However, you might think this would end up as a major full time business with major residual income  but because of attrition rate within many downlines it will just  not happen. But even with this attrition rate  you can still have a nice little income to put in your wallet or purse.

3. Like the first one you must have a solid product to do this. If you do you can build a modest downline and can make a nice little part time income. The fact of the matter is near the end of your downline ( the people last in) will continue to use the product because they love it. Additionally, it should be a quality product at a very affordable price. That is the key.


I hope this short post gives people the insight that they can indeed earn some part time money with MLM. Particularly if it is one of the Top MLM Companies around !

Folks, this is aint no  rocket science and anyone with some commitment can do it.

You do not have much to lose just be sure that your start up costs are nominal and fair !!


Take care,
