MLM Blogging – Ty Tribble’s MLM Blog Secrets Reviewed

Earlier this week Ty Tribble and Ann Sieg released a new two stage blog training course, MLM Blog Secrets and MLM Blog Code using a Launch Formula that was hugely educational in and of itself (a blog post about that is coming up in the near future).When I first heard about this new training program, I was honestly less than enthusiastic about it.

Before anyone rips my head off and leaves me nasty comments for saying that, allow me to explain why!

I have been blogging for a fair amount of time myself (not as long as Ty that’s for sure, but long enough) and getting a blog up and running for myself and for team members and private clients is a very simple thing to do now. I also teach small groups of brand spanking new bloggers how to setup their own blogs, how to choose a domain, get hosting, which theme to use, plugins, etc.

This is VERY time consuming training  and I can only work with a handful of people at a time.  I also have to charge a substantial amount of money for the training so that it actually is a revenue producing activity in my business. (Yes … it is called trading TIME for DOLLARS.) And that is where the rubber meets the road for a lot of people.

Many new entrepreneurs, especially new network marketers, turn to blogging as a cost effective solution to marketing their businesses on a really tight budget. Alot of times, their budgets don’t allow for a high priced training program. So they try to set up their own blogs and have no success. When they have no success, they decide that blogging doesn’t work and they abandon their blogs.

Here is another thing to consider. Setting up a marketing hub designed to truly support a network marketer/MLM’er is a bit different than setting up a marketing hub for a more “traditional” business or an affiliate marketer. And this is something that Ty specializes in. After all, he is recognized by the best of the best in the industry as THE top MLM blogger in the world.

After watching and listening to Ty, Ann Sieg and our beloved George talk about this new course at great length (I watched each of the videos they sent out at the beginning of this launch and took LOTS of notes), I decided to purchase this course so that I could get access to Ty’s insider blogging scoop and see if I could learn how to put together a more streamlined, less personally labor and time intensive training program for my own people.

Since price was never discussed during the launch videos, I was expecting to have to pay $97 for MLM Blog Secrets upfront. I was flabbergasted when I found out that I would only have to pay $47 for it during launch. I was SHOCKED  when I saw the upgrade offer of $195 (or 2 payments of $97)  for Ty’s MLM Blog Code My skeptical mind kicked in and said, “Hmmmmmmmm … I wonder what the QUALITY of this training is going to be like. I hope that George knew what he was talking about !!”

I downloaded everything, watched all the videos and took lots of notes…

MLM Blog Secrets

Three Modules – A Terrific Cheat Sheet – And Ann Sieg’s Copy Writing Class From Renegade Breakthroughs

This is a detailed click-by-click BASIC training that covers EVERYTHING someone will need to learn and implement in order to get their own blog up and running. Ty painstakingly covers all of the basics with great attention to detail. The best thing about this basic training is that someone can follow along on their own computer and mimic exactly what Ty is doing whenever they want to, even 3:00 am.  The cheat sheet is a great reference tool for folks that are just starting out and for established bloggers that are looking for additional content and syndication opportunities.

Bottomline, by the time people are done with this training, if they take action, they will have their own blog hosted and on the internet. They will have content on it targeted to their specific audience and should be seeing some traffic. This is the perfect training to offer people who do not wish to go into a private coaching program. And, as a team leader and business builder, it will give you back alot of time to focus on true revenue generating activities rather than systems training.

A question that I get all the time from my students and clients is ” What do I write about?”

The bonus copywriting call that Ann added into this course is over two hours long. It is delivered in both mp3 and mp4 formats. There are cheat sheets included, PDF’s, copies of Power Point Slides, and a bonus call with Master Copywriter David Garfinkle. What I really liked about this bonus is that Ann digs really deep into the mindset of what good selling is all about and how to create a valuable, pleasurable buying experience for your perfect customers that keeps them on your list for a long time.

Marketing, direct response marketing and copywriting are skills that just about EVERY self made millionaire has mastered and they are VITAL to the success of any business because they allow you sell your products and services effortlessly to the right crowd of starving customers. This call is worth 5 times the price of the course alone. (How do I know …??? I study with one of the best direct response copywriters in the business and I know how much I pay to work with him.) There is SILLY value here.

MLM Blog Code

This is the motherload of Ty’s MLM blogging success

  • Ty’s personal blogging success formula
  • Keyword research, SEO and re-purposing content
  • Building flagship content based on keyword research
  • More copywriting strategies and resources
  • How to monetize your blogging – affiliate marketing, properly funneling people into your business opportunity
  • Correctly using statistics and analytics for your blog including which plugins to use to make this as efficient as possible
  • And an in depth analysis of three of the TOP BLOGS in the world (NOT network marketing/MLM related)

I got a tremendous amount of value from these videos.  So much so, that the Attraction Market Kitchen is now undergoing a total renovation. Even better, the training and services that I provide both my team and private clients will be even more valuable than before. Can anyone say world class solutions provider? What do you think that is going to do for my business ? Imagine the possibilities of what it could do for YOURS !! 

Ty has poured his heart and soul into this training course. He is sharing his 7 years of successful blogging secrets with you for next to nothing. The presentation and delivery is top notch. The  bonuses are off the hook. I know what I would have to charge for this training to make it profitable for myself and it would be at least 10 times what I paid for the whole she-bang.

MLM Blog Secrets – $97.00

MLM Blog Code – $195.00

MLM Blogging – The Tribe Syndication Association (TSA) X-Factor

Tribe Syndaication Association (TSA)

I am always looking for better ways to get my blog content in front of as many of the right people as possible and I know that lots of other people are looking to do the same thing. There are lots of different ways to do this: article marketing and directory submissions, different social networking sites, traditional press releases, social media press releases, ezines, newsletters, video sharing sites, photo sharing sites. I am sure that you get the basic idea. However, all of this takes alot of time and the results (i.e. more traffic, comments and higher Alexa ratings) are not guaranteed.

As a business person, I am always looking to find ways to leverage myself, my time and my resources (this is why I LOVE MLM :-)).  As blogger who is busy building a business, there are only a couple of seemingly viable options available when it comes to content syndication. I could either outsource my blogging and content syndication, hoping that I could find someone to write in my voice (a VERY hard thing to do) or I could become a member of a paid “Syndication Network” and  in exchange for having others syndicating my content, I would syndicate other people’s content (this requires a HUGE time commitment in big communities) while paying a premium for that privilege. Neither of those options worked really well for me. However, as things usually happen in this world, I found out about the Tribe Syndication Association (TSA) from Gavin Mountford, our resident Facebook Network Marketing expert at thatMLMbeat.com.

The Amazing VALUE of TSA

No question about it, promoting yourself on the internet these days is viewed as a VERY anti-social, newbie thing to do. VERY dew experts toot their own horn. They always have other people do it for them.  Google is VERY SMART and understands this. Consequently, they rate your MLM BLOG on how much your content is promoted by OTHER PEOPLE.

Herein lies the TRUE VALUE of the TSA.

Have you ever wanted:

  • more comments on your posts?
  • more views to your videos?
  • more friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube?
  • more natural exposure on the internet? (Google pays attention to this as well. If they feel that your “exposure” is not natural, you get penalized)

The Tribe Syndication Association (TSA) can benefit you tremendously. Additionally, the TSA is a great opportunity to network with other MLM Bloggers and create strong relationships that could possibly pay off handsomely in the future.

Dave Cook, creator of the Tribe Syndication Association is a true leader and visionary.

His vision for TSA is very simple – To Become The Most Powerful Syndication Tribe On The Net! PERIOD!

The more that content is syndicated by TSA members,  the more outside syndication will occur.  ONLY GOOD CONTENT will be syndicated by TSA members. Everyone is responsible for managing their own reputation. Dave has created an organized system to help get people’s content promoted and it works !! 🙂

One of the things that I truly appreciate about the TSA is that it is a “free” syndication network. And by free I mean that there are no monthly charges associated with membership in TSA. Most MLM and Network Marketing syndication Tribes are now charging monthly fees for their memberships. The only real “cost” to being a member of TSA is the amount of time that you spend syndicating other people’s content. Here is where the Law of Reciprocity comes in – the more members give to each other, the more they will  receive!! “You have got to GIVE in order to RECEIVE !!

If you are considering syndicating your content in order to get better distribution, you really should take a look at the TSA.  There are a number of great bloggers involved already. The relationships that you build with these other MLM bloggers could be very important to you in the future.

Tribe Syndication Association has a group page here on thatMLMbeat.com as well. You can check it out by clicking ===>>>HERE<<<=== You can meet many of the TSA members, get a feel for what the TSA is all about, and even get some really good training that several of the TSA members conduct on marketing and syndication within this group!!

Hope that you have received some AWESOME value from this post !!

MLM Blogging For Prospects Works, Just Ask Ty Tribble

Recognized worldwide as the #1 MLM Blogger in the industry, Ty Tribble demonstrated consummate “SHOCK and AWE COOLNESS” (thank you Frank Kern for that phrase) this week when he gave away the secrets to his phenomenal success in an info packed FREE video training series that includes a speech Ty did a few months ago at an event that people paid over $1,300 to attend.

If you haven’t seen the videos yet, what the heck are you waiting for? Click right <<<===here ===>>> and come back to this post when you have watched Ty’s training. Yes … it is THAT good 😉

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about some traffic challenges that I was experiencing with my main MLM blog. I got some Tweets and a few comments. One of those comments was from Ty Tribble which kind of shocked me actually. I was thinking to myself … Self,  why did this LEGEND take the time to comment on this blog post …??? Ty’s action made me very curious ABOUT HIM !!! So, what else does a curious Rose do but check this guy out.  And what I found out was VERY IMPRESSIVE indeed. So, I subscribed to his mailing list and I started receiving  helpful emails from him EVERY DAY that lead me to information on his blog. You know what? I am actually beginning to LIKE this Ty Tribble guy alot.

Success Leaves CLUES

Ty has been blogging actively about network marketing for more than 7 years. He has written more than 5000 blog posts during that time frame. He is the fastest distributor in the history of MLM and Network Marketing to reach $100,000 in income out of 50,000 distributors.
He was also the  number one team-builder and number one recruiter for his former company.
So, what was the secret to his incredible success?
BLOGGING and setting up a MARKETING FUNNEL that allows people to get to know him, like him and trust him at their own pace. And he now has the ability to MARKET what ever he wants to his LIST (me included) whenever he wants to. This is how you start developing a “Launch Formula” of your very own 😉
Some of the things that Ty discusses in those videos,  JUST in case you haven’t watched them yet
  • The right way to start an MLM blog from scratch (or how you can transform your current blog into a lead generation magnet almost overnight)
  • How to create MLM blog content that helps your prospects solve their problems and gets them to take action
  • Several simple things you can do to keep people from leaving (bouncing off) your MLM blog right after they arrive
  • This is the most important one of all ~ How to get a year’s worth of free traffic to your blog in just 30 days. ( I paid big time attention to this one and I am beginning to see my Alexa rating start going back up after 48 hours. Thank YOU Ty!)

Lazy, Hazy, Summertime MLM Blogging

The Sun's So BRIGHT I Gotta Wear Shades

The 90 days of SUMMER 2010 are here already. Where on earth has the first half of the year gone to? Lots of MLM Bloggers just might find it a bit challenging to blog consistently with all of the summertime fun and activities that will be going on. So, here are some of my thoughts on how to joyfully blog on, while having some serious summer fun. Would love to hear what some of YOUR ideas are. Be sure share them below with everyone 🙂

I have got to be really frank with you, this is not what I originally planned to be blogging about tonight. But, after racing back into the house to write this post (which is 4 hours overdue at this point … George will just have to forgive me), I think it is a VERY timely topic.

If I had had my wits about me, I would have brought my Flip with me to the BBQ. Nothing is more entertaining or effective than delivering a great message through video, especially when everyone in the video is having a fantastic time . If you have been following all of the launches that have been going on for the past couple of weeks, each one of them has been delivered via video and then followed up by email. Video has become the little black dress of internet marketing.

Many  MLM Bloggers and internet network marketers have found that they can create very dynamic content and “stickiness” through this medium. They are also able to create an unparalleled  level of intimacy with their readers and subscribers through using video on standard blogs, or even creating vlogs. The fact is, video is far more effective than plain text any day.

Writing a plain text blog post, like this one for example, requires a certain amount of pre-blogging work. You have to find the right photos to “garnish” your blog post with. Earlier this week, fellow team blogger, Derek Alvarez, wrote a blog post about “Choosing A Facebook Ad Picture That Would Make A Peacock Jealous”. The same concept applies to creating a blog post that will totally grab your reader’s attention both intellectually and emotionally. Pictures are a great way to engage someone’s emotions by hooking them visually and triggering a subconscious memory response. When that happens, people are subconsciously compelled to pay attention to what you have to say, allowing them to easily connect more deeply with you.

Transitioning From Traditional Blogging To Vlogging

Many bloggers, myself included, already use video on their traditional blogs to enhance their reader’s experience. I think that creating shorter written blog posts and adding video is a very smart way to leverage both time and the ability to build reader rapport alot more quickly. One of the decisions that I made to improve my personal blog’s rankings is to do shorter, more frequent posts enhanced with video. I will be using this strategy for  the entire summer and evaluating the results to see if I want to keep on doing it after 90 days.

Videos don’t have to be terribly time consuming. With a little bit of planning, you can pretty much use ANY real time experience to illustrate a valuable network marketing success tip that your readers will benefit from. You could even create a series based around a single event that you break into 3-4 minute multiple segments. And that results in a week’s worth of MLM blog posts created pretty much all at the same time.

What a really cool way to have your strawberry shortcake and have enough time to be able to eat it too!

If you have any questions about using video on your blog … let me know in the comments below !!!

MLM Blogging – Metrics and Management, The M & M’s of Your Blog’s Effectiveness (Part Two)

It happens to ALL of us. You are doing the do, following the plan that you have put in place for yourself to a tee. And then STUFFLIFE, whatever you want to call it, happens and throws you a curve ball and to quote Robert Burns, “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley”. This is why Metrics are such a valuable tool to use in measuring your blog’s effectiveness and pinpointing specific areas that require your immediate attention.

The last post that I did for this series  TWO WEEKS AGO,  (forgive me everyone, I should have done what I always tell others to do :-(), discussed using Google Analytics to track and measure the results you are receiving for your blogging efforts.

I was shocked and stunned today when I took a good look at my Analytics Account for my MLM Blog and NOT in a good way. Here are snapshots of my Analytics Summary for today and Alexa summaries from March 2010 and today as well. There is LOTS of bad news to be seen. The GOOD NEWS is that situation can be reversed. I’ ll talk about that a little later on.



The snapshot below is from today May 29, 2010 …

Alexa Rankings For RoseMis.com May 2010

This snapshot is from March 8, 2010 (almost 90 days ago) …

Alexa Ranking For RoseMis.com March 2010

This snapshot is from my Google Analytics Account May 29,2010 …

Google Analytics For RoseMis.com 05 29 10

My Alexa ranking was in the 240,000 range 10 days ago …. What Happened ?

Here are the three questions that I am asking myself right now:

  • What relevant conclusions can I draw from this information?
  • What can I do to improve these results?
  • How can this information help me serve my readers better and increase the number of readers to my blog?

Here are the answers that I have come up with (I’m inviting you to add your analysis to this in the comment section below):

1. Although my Alexa rankings are up from March 2010, they took a HUGE nosedive over the past 10 days. My traffic is WAY down compared to last month. The bounce rate is VERY high based on my historical numbers. People are spending alot less time ON the blog. And they are looking at fewer pages.

Why?

  • I was posting alot more 3 months ago
  • I was posting really interesting, relevant content
  • I was syndicating and commenting alot more on OTHER PEOPLE’S blogs
  • I was actively publishing articles to different article directories and social communities
  • I had just published my e-Book
  • I was alot more SOCIAL in the blogoshpere, Facebook, Twitter, Better Networker, Blog Talk Radio
  • I had alot of BUZZ going on around my content because I was creating alot of BUZZ around other people’s content

What Happened?

  • I took on several time intensive consulting projects
  • I did not allow sufficient time for Socializing – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Better Networker
  • I did not create another new product
  • I was not back linking to other people’s content adequately
  • I stopped posting 3 times a week and went to a 1 post per week schedule
  • I didn’t do any sort of article marketing to create back links to my information
  • My content became old and not relevant to the needs of Network Marketers and MLM’ers
  • My self-management went straight to hell

Can This Be Fixed?

Yes it can, but not without a serious overhaul of my daily method of operation. Things have gotten really busy because of the consulting work that I have picked up. Reviewing the LONG TERM results and goals I want, I allowed myself to get seriously off track because of “bright new shiny objects”. This is no way to build a business that is going to be around for the long haul. Here is what I can do right now to get back on track.

  • I can hire a VA to help with some of the more mundane tasks.
  • I need to get SOCIAL again. There are ways to automate some of that, but I will need to invest more upfront time interacting at a higher level with other people so that I can find out exactly what the new concerns are and how to best serve my current readers and attract more people to my information (which is how I got my consulting clients in the first place).
  • I need to create another high value, totally relevant information product.
  • I need to focus on getting more of my content syndicated. TSA (Tribe Syndication with thatMLMbeat.com) will provide a big boost for me socially as well as for content syndication.

Lessons Learned From All Of This

Maintaining  focus and self-discipline is CRITICAL to the LONG TERM success of anything. Having the right tools in place to measure results is IMPERATIVE to ensuring that one is on the right course. Responding to the detours and challenges that will inevitably occur, in a proactive rather than a reactive way, brings about quicker course correction and better long term results. It is VITAL  to be on the bleeding edge of current trends and information and to share that information with the people that can benefit from it. And most important of all, since we are in a social economy, being surrounded by a Tribe that shares my vision is paramount to my success online.

My hope that you received some real value from this post! Be sure to leave your comments and suggestions in the comments area. And take a minute to share this story with YOUR Tribe!!

Love him or hate him Eddie Van Halen is one seriously sharp Rock and Roller. I recently read an article that prompted me to take a look for Van Halen Style Brown M&M’s in my MLM blog.


Van Halen’s Brown M&M Business Strategy

Rock Stars get some amazing perks negotiated into their performance contracts. Whimsical requests are made and catered to by promoters all the time. One of the craziest “prima donna” requests of all time was made by Van Halen when he was actively touring. His standard concert contract called for a bowl of M&M’s backstage with the proviso, that all of the brown M&M’s be removed from the bowl. The presence of one single M&M was sufficient legal cause for Van Halen to cancel a scheduled appearance without giving advance notice and go on one of his infamous trash and bash rampages. What a prima donna act, right? Not at all. Turns out that Van Halen is a VERY astute observer of human behavior and a super savvy business man.

How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything

The brown M&M provision was included in Van Halen’s contracts as a very simple, easily measured test to determine if the technical requirements of the contract had been thoroughly read and executed. He knew that if he found brown M&M’s, he would also find other technical errors that could ruin their whole show or even possibly kill people. By simply inserting this clause into his contracts, Van Halen was easily alerted to a potential problem BEFORE it could affect his show. Sheer GENIUS !!

How Brown M&M’s Can Help Your MLM Blogging

Great story right? What does this have to do with your MLM blog?

Your blog is a 24/7 marketing tool and if it is not working FOR you, it is working AGAINST you. Your blog is your virtual business card and sales assistant. It allows you to present yourself as an expert in your niche while helping you connect and build relationships with your ideal prospects through service, trust and value. It is a very effective way of getting information in front of a large number of people and creating new relationships and leads.

So how can you determine if your blog is doing what it is supposed to do or if there are brown M&M’s in your blog?


Here are 20 questions that you can ask yourself  to see if your results are on track or your strategy needs to be tweaked:


  1. Are you REALLY blogging from YOUR core values? (If you aren’t sure what I mean by this, you can review last week’s post by clicking here.)
  2. How much traffic is your blog receiving on a daily, weekly and monthly basis?
  3. Do you know what that traffic is doing once they get to your blog?
  4. Do you notice certain spikes in traffic after you have blogged about a certain topic?
  5. How many repeat visitors do you have?
  6. How many new visitors are you getting?
  7. How long are they staying on your blog?
  8. How many posts are they reading while they are on your blog?
  9. Are people commenting on your posts?
  10. Are people interacting with the comments others leave on your blog?
  11. Are you acknowledging and responding to those comments?
  12. Are people sharing your information on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks?
  13. Is your content being bookmarked and shared throughout the social bookmarking sites?
  14. Are people opting in to receive your e-Newsletter or e-Zine?
  15. Is your mailing list growing?
  16. Do you communicate regularly with the people on your list?
  17. Are you providing value to people in those communications?
  18. Are people buying what you promote through your affiliate links on your blog or in your emails?
  19. Are people contacting you directly (phone, Skype, email) to get to know you better or to get more information about what you have going on?
  20. Do you know how many people are subscribed to your RSS feed?

Metrics Really Matter

Successful blogging takes thought, time and an acute awareness of what’s working or not. Paying attention to the brown M&M’s alerts you to potential problems and things that just aren’t working in your best interests. It allows you to leverage your time and efforts better by pointing out areas that need your attention immediately.

Van Halen’s story is a great reminder about the wisdom of setting up early warning systems. Having those systems in place saves time, wasted effort and frustration.

It is a great thing if you know the answers to all of those questions. It is a better than great thing if you know what TO DO with all of that information once you have compiled it. So that will be the topic of  next week’s post 🙂

Hope that you received some real value from this post! Be sure to leave some comments. And take a minute to share it with YOUR Tribe!!

What Is a Mission Statement and Why Does Every MLM Blog Need One?

  • null

The following is the Mission Statement for Starbucks:


“Our mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.”


It’s simple and it’s sincere. And, everyone that does business with Starbucks gets it.

Many network marketers and MLM’ers who blog make the mistake of not taking the time to craft a mission statement for their blog.

If you do not have one, I urge you to write one as soon as possible. Once you do, you will find that your prospective customers and business partners understand you better. You will begin working only with customers and partners who share your values. All of  your team members will have a better understanding of their purpose in your organization. You will also  find that it is much easier to make decisions about how to run your business.

Your mission statement should be a formal, short, written statement of your blog’s purpose. In a nutshell, it should answer the question “Why does this blog exist?”

If you’ve never developed a mission statement before, here are a few things it might address:
  • The purpose and intention of your blog (i.e., an explanation of what your blog is about and who will benefit from reading your blog)
  • What your aspirations for the blog are
  • What sets your blog head and shoulders above the rest of the network marketing and MLM blogs out there
  • Your core values, purpose, and future goals
  • The products and/or services that you offer and recommend

Your mission statement should be specific and narrow enough that it can’t apply to anyone else‘s blog. But, it should be written so that it is flexible enough to allow room for growth and change. Make sure that the statement is clear … by that I mean, it does not contain a bunch of buzz words or industry jargon and easy for potential clients and partners to understand.

Once you have your mission statement laid out, you can use it to help guide your blogging efforts,  laying out your blog’s basic design, providing content creation direction and cohesiveness, and also to assist you in directing your decision making process.

Blogging From Your Core Values Makes A HUGE Difference

There is one facet of your mission statement that is more important than all others: your core values.

Core values are those values  that form the foundation from which we do everything in life. The world is ever-changing, ever-evolving.  However, core values remain constant.

Core values are NOT descriptions of the work you do or the methodologies you use to accomplish your life’s mission. Rather, your values add definition and parameters to your work, how you interact with others, and which strategies you use to fulfill your mission. They are the basic elements governing how you go about your life and your work. They are the practices you use every day in everything you do.

Core values should:
  • Govern personal and business relationships
  • Guide business practices
  • Clarify who you are
  • Articulate what you stand for
  • Help explain why you do business the way you do
  • Guide you in how to teach others
  • Help you decide how to reward others
  • Guide you in making decisions
  • Require no external justification
Here is an example of my core values. These are the values that guide everything I blog about at the Attraction Marketing Training Kitchen:
  • I am committed to contributing to my readers’  financial and intellectual growth  and well-being.
  • I continually strive for excellence with all of my content, training, products and services.
  • I associate and do business with only those people and companies who share my commitment to integrity, excellence and service.
  • I strive to provide an environment that operates in the best interests of  everyone’s professional and personal growth.

Once you have written your mission statement and core values, add them to the “About” section of your blog. This a spot where everyone who visits your blog can see them and see you “walking your talk”.

Take the time review them on a regular basis with yourself and your readers. And always make sure when you are considering bringing a new business partner into your business they know this is what you stand for and why you are in business. Real people connect with other real people that they resonate with. Your blog allows the right people for you and your business to find you, get to know and pre-qualify themselves for your time, products and services.

It goes without saying, writing a mission statement and core values is simply not enough. What matters most is living them on a daily basis and showing people that you are a person of your word.

Use your mission statement to help you make decisions about your business – the  companies you partner with, the products you create and promote, the way in which you communicate with your visitors, readers and business associates. You will never have to second guess yourself and your integrity will never be questioned. You will always provide high value content rich information to everyone which will have them coming back to your blog over and over again.

Hope that you received some real value from this post! Be sure to leave some comments. And take a minute to share it with YOUR Tribe!!

MLM Blogging Tips – How To Engage 98-99% of Any Audience With Every Blog Post

To Blog Or Not To Blog

As network marketers and bloggers we are always looking for ways to earn our readers’ and subscribers’ trust, build rapport with them and get them to take ACTION.

What if I told you that there really is a fast, easy recipe, that when followed precisely,  allows you to communicate very effectively with a large diverse group of people ?

If you answer these 4 BASIC questions with your blog post, you will reach 98 – 99 % of ANY audience successfully.

This little recipe is something that I stumbled upon going through some of Andy Jenkins’ (The Video Boss),  Mike Koenigs’ (Traffic Geyser) and Alex Mandossian’s free training materials.

They each use this formula successfully to engage and endear themselves to the 4 major personality types that have been identified over the centuries.

These guys  have cultivated HUGE reader bases, opt-in lists and they get people to want to buy lots of their products and services 😉

The Traditional Personality Types

  • the Driver (Red, Ruby, Bear)
  • the Expressive (Blue, Sapphire, Monkey)
  • the Amiable (Yellow, Pearl, Dolphin)
  • the Analytical (Green, Emerald, Owl)

Each one of these different personality types learns differently. To get and keep their attention you have to communicate into their style and values. And you must keep in mind that they have VERY DIFFERENT attention spans !

The Personality Types Redefined For Marketers (shortest attention span to longest)

  • Sales (Persuaders and Motivators) 35% of your audience
  • Scholastics (Objectives and Outcomes) 18-20% of your audience
  • Technicals/Geeks (Operations and Processes) 25% of your audience
  • Marketers/Supporters/Evangelists (Out of the box Creatives and Visionary Opportunity Seekers) 20% of your audience
  • Each of these different personality types uses a different question for forming ideas about something and HOW you answer their questions gets them to take action.

    The 4 Questions

    • Sales ~ “Why?”
    • Scholastics ~ “What for?”
    • Technicals/Geeks ~ “How?”
    • Marketers/Supporters/Evangelists ~ “What if ?”

    Here are some examples of the four questions…

    Your message is “Opt-In and Get My Free Training Course….”

    1. Sales will ask “Why should I opt-in and get this training?”

    You should answer this question with benefits.

    For example, “This training course will show you how to blog like a Pro-Blogger in the shortest amount of time possible allowing you to start building your list very quickly.”

    2. Scholastics will ask “What purpose should I opt-in and get this training for?”

    You should answer this question with practical results.

    For example, “This training course will get you up and running on the internet with your own blog in less than 2 weeks. This will save you the time and expense of hiring and waiting for a professional designer to do this for you.”

    3. Technicals will ask “How does this training work?”

    You should answer this question with processes or systems.

    For example, “This training will be delivered to you via email over the next 7 days. In each email there will be a link to a video on my blog that will show you the things you need to do to get your blog up and running within 2 weeks. If you follow the videos precisely, your new blog will be customer ready in record time!”

    4. Marketers/Supporters/Evangelists will ask ” What if I get this free training to…??

    You should answer this question by suggesting how they could use the free training in ways other than the obvious…

    For example, “Here’s how you can use this free training to get more people on YOUR team and how it can help YOU earn more money through affiliate marketing!”

    The Secret Sauce

    Cover all of these points in the following order to get the BEST results (think reader attention span here)

    • Why you should get this free training and how it will personally help you.
    • What this free training will do and what it will practically accomplish.
    • How this free training does what I say it does.
    • What are all the creative things that you can do with this free training.

    When this type of structure is used, you will be able to connect effectively and efficiently with the largest number of people possible. This is a great way to start creating wonderful relationships with a broad spectrum of readers that start to know you, like you and trust you so that the next action they take, is what you want them to do through your call to action!

    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

    Biography:
    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 thatMLMBeat.com:
