Announcing: New Theme, New MLM Blogging Team!

Wow, I’m excited! To accommodate our vision and focus on promoting passionate network marketing professionals, here’s a gear shift to drive us into the right direction.

Building new business relationships and getting more eye balls on your blog posts is still our number one focus. So instead of trying to cram that all onto the front page, we’ve made some changes to support the growth of our community.

So before we talk new team, let’s talk about the theme (new layout)…

Where the blog posts and conversations are at...

Previously we attempted to have everything happening on the front page our site to give our members as much publicity as possible.

Problem was too many distractions and communication was crammed into one place.

Our new home page (not active yet) will now act as an announcement page (magazine style) to direct both new visitors and community members to various parts of the site that will be of interest to them.

Right now, the home page is set to the main activity feed, but in the next few days you will find it here:

We will feature snippets of the activity on the front page and this will be the core page to connect with members and access new blog posts.

Enhanced navigation for easier browsing

Besides the standard top menu that can be used to navigate your profile and WordPress dashboard, we have added additional navigation tabs to the main menu with extended categories in the drop down menus.

This will make it easier to navigate both syndicated blogs as well as posts submitted directly on our main blog.

Meet the team

Now introducing the next 6 people has me REALLY excited! Other than featuring guest writers, we have 6 professional MLM bloggers who will each be the voice of a different segment of Network Marketing.

Expect tips, tricks and diverse knowledge coming your way from unique personalities who are masters in their specific MLM niche.

Let’s just say we have everything covered from Network Marketing ethics, Social Media strategies, MLM blogging, MLM company reviews, PPC (pay per click) marketing all the way to tips exclusively for Network Marketing moms.

So with that said, here is our elite MLM blogging line up from around the globe:

John Counsel

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Direct sales professional, author, trainer and speaker since 1965 (including MLM since 1982)

When people ask John what he does, his answer is “I teach”. Most assume that he means teaching in school or university. He’s done that in the past, but now he teaches people to be successful… and free.

In John’s professional opinion, the best vehicle for helping “ordinary” people to achieve extraordinary success and freedom is network marketing. He says “Network marketing, when it’s done PROPERLY, is the most ethical, enlightened, efficacious, equitable and egalitarian way to do business of all – but ONLY when it’s done properly by people who are equally ethical, enlightened, efficacious and egalitarian.”

He doesn’t just teach people HOW to be successful and free, however. That never lasts. The world changes, and so do the methods and media. He teaches the principles, values and standards that are the real reasons WHY they achieve lasting success and freedom. Including those five essential “e” words above.

Then he teaches them why and how to teach others, so that the benefits flow and grow in all directions, helping more and more people enjoy lasting success and freedom.

That’s John’s role and mission here at

Learn to learn -Learn to teach – Teach to learn – Teach to teach.
