MLM recruiting secrets that’ll bring in 3 per day

News flash: approaching well-dressed people in Wal-mart or spamming your Facebook with links is not a good look.

Scout’s honor.

Your whack approach is giving zero value to the marketplace, and you’re merely another dime-a-dozen money-chaser.

You’re chasing money, and just like “chasing” the opposite sex, it never works. You’re desperate, vulnerable and mainstream.

Luckily, there is a better way.

I’ve never begged anyone to join my business, and my inbox is looking like this these days:

…and most recently, like this:

99% of the time, I’ve never talked to them, either.

I have 3 distinct methods. You’ll want to take some notes.

Here we go…

1. MLM blogging

Optimized blogging is my secret sauce. Most people want to throw up basic, 20-minute blog posts about a deal they joined, hit publish, and think that people are going to be intrigued by their message.

First of all, the potential buyers will see right through this, because you aren’t offering any unique insight or value.

And then, Google knows better not to rank your site, as recent Google algorithm updates have specifically addressed thin content that does not give real value to the user.

So what is optimized blogging?

It’s blogging that plays into the potential buyer’s mind – and plays into Google’s ranking algorithm.

You want to whip up 1500+ words of posh content that is full of unique perspective, videos, graphics and discussion.

For each blog post.

You’ll see that I break down the concept into easy-to-understand instruction, I provide proof of the concept, and I have a strong CTAs (call-to-action’s) throughout the post to get people into my deal.

For one, it converts well from a user-end, and it also ranks well for “My Advertising Pays” keywords (second only behind the corporate site).

But that is just one post. That is only one audience (people searching information about My Advertising Pays).

Gotta take it further. Think about the hundreds – even thousands – of other audiences out there on the internet that would be interested in your deal…think about it.

There are hundreds of programs out there. Thousands, even.

People who do join those deals are also interested in my deal…you see what I am saying?

Find those niches and exploit them. If you’re in a vitamin deal, find 10 other vitamin deals out there and write the best pieces about them. You’ll find that there are few people taking advantage of this, which is why I am cleaning up on blogging leads.

Affiliate marketing programs, MLM companies, mindset books, internet coaches, and all the keywords related to “make money from home” or “make money online”.

There are literally tens of thousands of audiences that you could tap into.

That is what optimized blogging is all about…finding those audiences and putting out the best piece of content in that niche. You’ll either get leads or sales.

And with those leads, get in the habit of hitting up your email leads a few times a week, providing value, and offering them resources to becoming successful network marketers and internet entrepreneurs.

Yes, you’ll need a good email autoresponder for this, but for any MLM-er transitioning to the online business route, this is a necessary $20/mo expense.

Now, you’ll need your own blog to do this. I highly recommend you use your own domain for this, as it is hard to build authority to a Tumblr, Blogger or Empower Network blog.

You want 100% complete control of your own domain, and it will require you to grab your own hosting and domain.

If you haven’t done this, I highly recommend you use Bluehost for this, as their 30-second WordPress installations make it possible for you to have a website up and running in 10 minutes.

I secured a special discount using this link.

Once you get your domain and hosting, Bluehost has a sexy, one-click WordPress installation.

Seriously, it takes 30 seconds.

Click on “Home” inside your Bluehost account, then “Install WordPress”…

…then choose your domain (either www.domain.com or domain.com), fill out your site info…and then you’re done.

Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin, put in your username and password, and you’re inside your WordPress dashboard.

For the full MLM blog setup, i shot this video for everyone.

It will guide you through setting up your blog, installing WordPress, installing your WordPress theme, picking out opportunities to talk about, and the full execution.

Hosting: Bluehost

Remember, before your posts go live, you’re not done.

You gotta cut a video, amigo.

And get that bad boy ranking on YouTube…

How?

First, make sure the title and description have the keywords you’re going after…

Then, share your video in a few Facebook groups..

(for MAP, share it in all the MAP groups…this will get you 100+ views right outta the gate)

Then, pour some Youtube “ranking sauce” on your video:

First, social bookmarks ($5)

Then, some backlinks ($5)

Then, some retention views ($5)

I linked those 3 Fiverr gigs for a reason. They work.

Also, keep the video files on your computer or save them on a disc or portable hard drive in case “flaggers” get your YT account deleted (this rarely happens, but it happened to several people in Empower Network).

And remember, do not just make videos about My Advertising Pays (or whatever deal you’re in).

If you’re in MAP, go after Global Ad Share, Neobux, Zhunrise, Genesis Global Network, etc, etc – there are THOUSANDS of niches you could go after…

Great, now that you’re blogging better than 95% of the other MLM-ers, let’s move on to the next method.

2. Facebook Ads

Most marketers on Facebook are doing it horribly wrong.

They just put up the same link on their FB wall every day, telling people to join, and spamming the same message in tons of money-making FB groups.

Desperate, much?

That’s not attraction marketing. With Facebook, you want to be a little less direct.

The solution: attraction marketing.

Just post results.

Your FB updates should be results-driven from your own production. Like a screenshot graphic showing daily earnings, or your weekly YouTube video showing the inside of your business.

Something like that.

A friend of mine (Frank Calabro) does this beautifully.

Every day on his Facebook wall, he posts the same graphic showing total income earned, new members he sponsored that day, and in big letters, the total amount of money he earned that day.

He does it every day, without fail.

Because of the consistency and the daily results, people are intrigued by his business. For one, it shows that he has nothing to hide because he is showing full documentation, and, it also shows that he is focused on results.

Now, this strategy only works if you are consistent (and you have results to prove it).

With My Advertising Pays, I would recommend daily updates because you earn daily on a company-wide profit-share.

Now, to supplement this Facebook strategy, you also want to do these things (H/T Frank Calabro):

  • BUILD your Facebook friends to 5,000. Only add business minded entrepreneurs. Go to network marketing groups and pages to find friends. Be selective.
  • Once per week, set up a Facebook event and invite everyone to see a live webinar in your company. Create your own webinar or live event if there currently isn’t one in your MLM or program.

3. Other paid traffic

If there was a drug that roided out your MLM sponsoring or recruiting, it’s paid traffic.

Bar-none.

With paid traffic, you could throw 25 people into your deal in one day.

You just have to know where the good paid traffic is…

There is banner advertising, traffic-exchange sites, ad networks and sponsored content sites you can use.

Now, without dropping just a few places to spend money on advertising, I compiled some exhaustive lists of validated places to advertise.

I’d recommend testing ad copy and ad graphics using Google Adwords or Facebook advertising before spending the big bucks at traffic sites. There are plenty of places on Google that will walk you through your first Google Adwords or Facebook ads campaigns, so I won’t cover that here.

(Hint: there are places on the web where you can buy $50 Adword spend coupons or $50 Facebook ad coupons for $5…the site rhymes with Diverr)

However, you want to test your copy and images so you can find one that converts well.

Then, when you find a winner, you’re ready to spend some cash.

Recap

These three methods work.

They’re income-producing activities.

MLM-millionaries have been created from these secrets:

…optimized blogging (see: Justin Verrengia, David Wood)…
…Facebook marketing (see: Simon Stepsys) …
…and paid traffic (see: Vick Strizheus).

Knowing this, you don’t have to master all three.

At minimum, become great at one of them before trying to master all three.

Either way, stick to these proven strategies. Mindlessly wandering on Facebook or buying more marketing products on the internet will not get you there.

Stick to these income-producing-activities…the “MLM recruiting secrets”.

Here’s to bringing in 2-3 people into your business every day.

How to start a blog in 5 minutes

Looking to start a blog but not sure where to start?

No worries. Funny thing, that was me 3 years ago. Seriously, I had no idea what I was doing, and now this blog gets over 1,000 hits a day.

Ready to get yours going in 5 minutes?

It doesn’t matter what type of blogger you’ll be…food blogger, beauty blogger, etc…you can be going in 5 minutes.

Then I’ll hit you with some blogging secrets that will have you blogging better than 99% of other bloggers right outta the gate, including:

  • how to unearth blog topic “gold nuggets” in 45 minutes or less, and…
  • my single-best advice for getting significant amounts of traffic.

OK, on to step 1…

Step 1: Set Up Your Custom Blog in 5 Minutes

For your website, go with an easy-to-install WordPress site, which will give you full functionality and control similar to 99.9% of websites out there.

You’ll need your own domain name and hosting, and I’ve found Bluehost or Hostgator as both fast and reliable web host solutions you could use.

Here is the exact process using Bluehost:

(A good way to go…free domain, and web hosting for under $5/mo)

Go to bluehost.com, then click “Get Started Now”…

( I secured a free domain and $3.49/mo discount…use this link here)

(make sure you already know your generic blog topic you want to cover before choosing your name)

…then, pick your domain name:

bluehost-domain-setup

Two things when picking your domain:

Stick to .com, .org and .net (in that order), and make the domain brandable.

A brand can be your name, a creative wordplay, or something simple like “Multiple Streams” (because I blog about multiple streams of income).

Next, when you are signing up, make sure you leave these 3 boxes unchecked:

bluehost-package

Short version: you don’t need any three of those upgrades.

I love Bluehost (their support is top-tier, and their web hosting is fast and reliable) but they got a little greedy here. Lol.

Ok, once you have your account, you’ll need to install WordPress.

Click “Home” inside of your Bluehost account, then inside your control panel, you’ll see a WordPress icon that says “Install WordPress”.

Click on that, choose either a http://www.domain.com or just http://domain.com (does not matter), fill out your WordPress credentials, and then click the “install” button.

You’re now live, and you can start blogging immediately.

Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin, throw in your WordPress creds in there, and you’re inside your WordPress dashboard.

Step 2: Find “Hidden” Topics You can Cover on Your Blog

First, find your topic on Stumbleupon to trigger ideas for your blog..

(or the closest category in Stumbleupon that is your blog niche)

Clothing, business, bodybuilding, day trading, film-making, international politics…whatever suits your blog topic the best, pick that category on Stumbleupon and begin “stumbling” (clicking the red “stumble” button will just bring up another piece of content in that category).

(after 30 minutes of this, your creative juices will reach colossal levels)

You’ll find outside-the-box pieces of content that went viral and unearth subtopics and categories that are goldmines for blog topics.

After 4 “stumbles” in the survivalist category on Stumbleupon, I found this post on DIY Bow-Making:

Great, great niche.

That is a niche that is so simple and targeted, (and virtually zero competition) you could start blogging about your journey of making your first DIY bow and arrow, and it would probably be the best “DIY bow” blog on the internet.

To further validate your blog topic, throw some keywords into Google’s keyword planner, which will show you monthly keyword volume (how often people search for the keyword).

You can see, for DIY bows, the keyword volume is decent, but probably not enough to be the flagship topic for your blog (maybe DIY hunting gear instead?)…

Next, for a more analytic approach, use Quora.

Quora is basically Yahoo Answers for techies and hipsters, and you’ll find exact questions of people desperately looking for answers.

Again, choose a category, and jot down specific topics and categories that people are having a hard time finding answers.

Quora provided me with this question in their survivalism category:

33 people followed this question, which means they’re all interested in the answers, as well.

This is pure data of what people want to know, and chemical survivalist hacks would be a niche worth exploring.

Think about it, if they’ve taken the time to ask a question in a forum, they probably couldn’t find a reasonable resource that answered their question elsewhere.

That’s it.

Use Stumbleupon to find hidden subtopics and Quora to source questions that people are asking.

Using the above exercises, you should find several creative (and validated) blog topics in 45 minutes or less.

Step 3: Become an “Authority” Blogger

To get the most traffic for your blog, you need to become an authority on your topic.

Become an expert in one thing.

Think: yoga for rock climbers…or paleo diet for diabetics.

In other words, don’t start a “weight loss blog for women” (dime-a-dozen), but start a “slow-carb diet blog for women” (doubt there is one), and then become the expert in that space.

You can think about expanding your audience reach once your blog is pulling in 100-200 visitors a day.

Sticking to your area of authority or expertise, Google will surrender groupie, boy-band love to your blog.

Just recently (July 2014), powerhouse brands such as ebay, Biography.com and History.com lost significant amounts of traffic from Google because their content became too far-stretched and generic.

These sites became too broad and, ultimately, too lazy with their content.

Thankfully for you, though, Google is letting these thorough, niche bloggers beat out huge, aggregated brands now, which wasn’t always the case.

Becoming the authority means putting out better content than other websites and bloggers. Content that is longer-form (2,000+ words) and stuffed with helpful graphics and visuals.

Typically, these are:

  • How-to Posts & Tutorials (“How to Double Your Blog Traffic…” step-by-step guides)
  • Resource Posts (“50 Ways to…” or “17 Hacks for…” titles stand out, great click-bait)
  • Expert Roundups & Interviews (“31 Nutrition Experts Weigh In On Energy Drinks”  hint: email 20 experts an intriguing question…boom)

Instead of hitting the publish button as many times as possible on your blog, brainstorm what resource or guide you could put together that would help your niche community.

Think more about epic, less about frequency.

Just like this blogging tutorial site is done: Start Blogging Online.

I wrote more about the phenomenon of less blogging frequency in Search Engine Journal

Remember, the internet is already cluttered with generic, regurgitated information (see: Empower Network). So, do whatever it takes to stand out, and find your cult following of dedicated fans.

And, as Seth Godin says, “become the purple cow” by being remarkable and different.

All killer, no filler.

Enjoy your blogging journey.
