Zoom Mobile – George Burton the founder of Primoris Music Group, launched Zoom Mobile last weekend in Las Vegas. Since about May of this year, George has been traveling across the USA in the Zoom Tour Bus, attracting founders to the company. They launched this last weekend with 100 of the 300 founders with them in Vegas.
George understands branding and loaned the Zoom Tour Bus, out to the rock band, Tomorrows Bad Seed, as they travel the country on the Vans Warped Tour.
Primerica Financial Services – The 2nd quarter results are in and they are looking good.
– Recruiting efforts are up with 13.6% more new recruits this quarter over a year ago.
– Primerica clients have increased their investing and saving by 26.3% over last quarter.
– And Primerica Life has seen the face amount of life insurance increase to $653 billion dollars, more than any other single Life Insurer in the world.
My Shopping Genie – David Freed has taken control of this company, but I still have concerns. Although the compensation plan has been changed from a Matric to a Binary, the bulk of the money paid to the distributors comes from the sale of “licensing agreements” to people who join the compensation structure. The end users never pay the company or distributors for anything. They are given a free desktop widget, they use to find the lowest cost items on the internet. Distributors are paid for the PPC (Pay Per Click) but this is will hardly amount to anything.
Based on current federal and state regulations, I question this business model. It sure looks a lot like the old Burn Lounge model.
Essence’ Worldwide – Founded by former rocker Michael Wienniger in 2009, this company is the foundation of a life long dream Michael has had or creating a new standard for Green Living. Michael made his mark in MLM by launching Power-Pops a few years ago. Today, this Weight loss Candy is #1 in its niche.
MediaNet group aka DubLi aka Dubli Network – I hit this company pretty hard in the beginning because of compliance issues. From a current review I did on their policies and procedures, it looks as if hiring MLM Attorneys Grimes & Reese was a great move for them.
However, I am still concerned that if the regulators comes looking at this company they will get hit for the reverse auction model. I do have to say since they did their reverse merger with MediaNet Group, they have come a long ways. For those who may not know MediaNet, they are the company who provides private labeled shopping portals for other companies. FHTM (Fortune High-Tech Marketing).
DNA aka Data Network Affiliates – My good friend George Madiou is a co-founder and CEO of this company, but I still have issues with what has and is going on with the company. For the 3rd or 4th time, the company has postponed or missed the launch date. First they said they launched in March, then it was changed to June, July and now August.
Without a doubt they have been hit with a few issues, but I can’t let them use that as an excuse for letting down the distributors. As a matter of fact Patrick Pretty reported this last week, that the BBB of South Florida has given DNA an “F” because of all that is happening. Now although, I don’t worry to much about the BBB, it does cause distributors issues when they are trying to recruit other people.
I’ll have Phil Piccolo the spokesman for DNA on Aces Radio Live this month and we will be asking the hard questions!
Qivana – This young company is raising the bar and setting a new standard of excellence in Direct Selling! In June the founders of this company took their founding distributors and top producers and they all went on a trip to St. Thomas. Now if you know about the U.S.V.I (U.S. Virgin islands), you take an extra suitcase so you can bring back duty free treasures.
What the Qivana family did, was to fill up their extra suitcases with toys, games and school supplies for the children of the Island. When they landed they gave all those gifts to the Boys & Girls Club of St. Thomas.
Folks, listen we are part of the greatest profession in the world. Lord knows we’re not perfect, but if we all stand together to hold each other accountable, then before you know it, the whole world will know just how great Direct Selling/MLM/Network Marketing truly is for changing their financial future.
Living An Epic Adventure,
“How You Do Anything Determines How You Do Everything ~ T. Harv Eker”… It really is all about “ME” and how I “BE” in the world.
Last week I did a post about the “attractiveness” of Core Authenticity in your MLM Blogging. That post “attracted” Faith Barnard. Faith is a very empowered Network Marketer who has been studying Ty Tribble’s MLM Blog Secrets and Blog Code and has gotten tremendous benefit from the course. Faith talks about all of the benefits that she has received from Ty’s course on HER blog and even takes HER conversation further by talking about “HEO” and the critical role that plays in effective MLM Blogging. Faith also shot a video about what she learned from Ty’s course and put that on both her blog and her YouTube Channel. What impresses me about Faith is that she does what she recommends that everyone else do and that is VERY attractive to other people because it shows them that it CAN be done simply and easily.
Simple and easy duplication is a key ingredient to success in Network Marketing, MLM and MLM Blogging.
We all know that “perfect” duplication doesn’t exist. But, our job as leaders is to make sure that the “duplication” process happens as quickly and as often as possible within our teams. The quickest way to do that is to help the newest people on our teams gain clarity about what they have in their hands and help them move forward quickly.
For anyone that is considering “attraction based internet marketing” as a key building block in their business model, showing them how to do it quickly and easily is CRITICAL. Setting up an optimized, niche targeted blog is not difficult. Getting established properly on Facebook and Twitter is not difficult. Expanding outwards from there is not difficult. All of this can literally been done in a couple of weeks and then built upon over time. If this is something that you are encouraging your people to do, encourage them to work together as a team to help one another as you lead the way by showing, helping and supporting them.
MLM Blogging is a long-term investment into building a proper internet business presence. It does not happen overnight. It does not happen in 2 or 3 weeks. It usually takes about 3-4 months for an MLM Blog to get any sort of traction on the internet at all. And then another 6 months of disciplined blogging to start seeing results … and results are optins to an email list or sales that come about because of your blogging.
By working together as a blogging team, you can help shorten the amount of time it takes for traction and results to happen.
Awesome Blogging ROI = ME x YOU
Let’s take a look at what that equation means:
- I write a blog post that has good, valuable content
- I tell my team members about it
- My team members comment on the post, they Facebook it, they Twitter it, they go to my YouTube Channel … etc
- This is content syndication – my information is multiplied by the number of people that push it our into their networks which gets more eyeballs on the information …. this is what Ty teaches and what the Tribe Syndication Association is all about
- All of a sudden, new people OUTSIDE of the “syndicate” see the information and it gets distributed even further AND new relationships are started … a perfect example of this is what happened when Faith Barnard found my information, commented on it, then made mention of it on her blog and now I am recycling all of that “good karma” back to HER …
- And everyone does the same for each other … the results are HUGE exposure, multiplication AND duplication … the Law of Reciprocity in full force … EVERYONE wins !!
Fundamentally this is very obvious and everyone “gets it”.
But my biggest question is, “Why, if so many people “get it”, don’t they do it?”
Ty Tribles’s results speak for themselves. I see too many Dead MLM Blogs out there … typically abandoned after just 90 days and that statistic doesn’t lie. People are bailing out on Facebook and Twitter “because they don’t work”. Don Crowther’s new information from Social Profit Formula states that Facebook has close to 500,000 million users ( if it were a country, it would be the third largest country in the world) and that if a six month plan of implementation is put in place, the results are astonishingly profitable. And, one of the keys to leveraging the power of Social Networking is your blog.
With so many great blogging and social networking courses out there designed for all skill levels, with so many great services out there that provide a ready made “team” if someone doesn’t have one already, why do you think so many people are not capitalizing on the leverage blogging affords them?

Jackie Ulmer has truly mastered the art of connecting with people online. And yes, connecting with people is one thing, but making sure that it leads to business is another.
Let’s just let the numbers do the talking: Enrolling more than 1200 people through social media and personal relationships says it all!
In this MLM interview Jackie mentions how traditional network marketing helped her develop strong communication skills that might not have been that easy to develop online.
And having those skill sets as a foundation has played a major role in Jackie Ulmer’s Online Network Marketing Success.
Your best bet? Watch this interview now!
Once you’ve watched this, I’m 100% certain that you’ll be inspired to learn more from Jackie.
WARNING: All content is not created equal! OK, that might sound a little confusing, so let me rephrase… Just because these interviews are free, doesn’t mean that they represent the same value compared to ‘just another blog post’.
Jackie didn’t hold back on any of these interviews and the tips and information that she generously shared could easily be charged hundreds of dollars for. And, most importantly, could be worth thousands of dollars to your business.
Take notes and listen with all ears! 🙂
Is there anything in particular that added value to your from these interviews?

Each week we bring you news from around the MLM and Network Marketing profession. This week we are covering several companies and providing you some warnings.
LiveSmart 360, is a new company launched by two old pioneers Mark McCool and Mike Potillo. McCool is the former founder of Cyberwize. This week videos started showing up allover the net showing huge checks and incomes. We are issuing a warning to the distributors and the company to be careful in shooting and showing videos without any income disclaimers.
Life Force International has release their flagship product Body Balance in a new freeze dried formula. This new packaging allows folks to take this great product on planes while they are traveling. Also, this new packaging also lowers the cost of packaging and shipping.
People Helping People Inc., CEO, Derrick Rodgers has finally answered the civil lawsuit filed against him be his former company Global Verge. Sadly, his response was more of a marketing piece, than an explanation of what has happened. Hopefully for the distributors of both companies this situation can be handled out of court. However, we have heard there could be 12 other top distributors and equity partners who may be sued.
Revolucion has just announced two new products, a weight management and eduction system and a new skin care line. This new company run by Derek Broes and his team is coming on strong. Derrick also terminated 20 distributors this week for unethical business practices.

Living An Epic Adventure,
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 !!
