Our New MLM Blog: What’s Coming Your Way IF Tomorrow Comes

MLM Blog | George Fourie

Welcome to our new MLM blog that might not live to see another day. Will this be it? Is this the first and last post? Am I attempting to make a blogging comeback on the day the world as we know it comes to an end?

Maybe a little too a controversial topic as a first post. Nevertheless, here we go and a warm welcome to you!

Why the new blog?

If you’re one of our longstanding readers, you might not see much difference in look and feel. Yes, same theme and structure, yet new location.There are 3 main reasons why we moved.

The first reason is one I’m going to avoid as it’s technical. But in short, we have more control and functionality having our blog separate from our community.

Secondly, we’re kinda flowing into a slightly different direction and angle to our posts.

Being a community of bloggers, we would like to focus on promoting members in the community or sharing the best tips from the best bloggers we can find.

Going hand in hand with blogging about bloggers is blogging about the industry.

Keeping you informed about the essential news and development taking place in our industry.

And the third reason is one that’s been missing in action from the blogging world, me!

Yes, sadly I’ve neglected the very skill set and passion that positioned me and this community as an authority in our industry.

I could justify my actions by saying I’ve been busy, but in my books that will just be an excuse, so I’m not going there.

So expect to see lots of me on this blog as well as our weekly video podcast with Troy Dooly on thatMLMbeat.TV

Over and above sharing industry and community news, I’ll give it my best shot to give you as much value and practical blogging tips as I’m capable of.

About You

thatMLMbeat is all about growing, connecting and building strong relationships that potentially lead to business. The latter just being a bonus if or when it happens.

So let’s connect. I want to get to know you, visit your blog and connect with you in the community if you are a member.

So here’s a video and some more information about me.

Now it’s your turn!

Please leave a comment below with a link to your blog or about me page on your blog that I can go and learn more about you.

Unless it’s all ended! 🙂

The End

MLM Blog | George Fourie

And finally, no pun intended, I must say the news hit me by surprise about this end of the world thing. Whatever happened to 2012?

What are your thoughts on this: Will this be the end of the world or have people completely lost their minds?

Let me know your thoughts below.

MLM Blog Secrets – Interview With Ty Tribble About Blogging For Prospects – Part 1

MLM Blog Secrets

Being an MLM Blog fanatic, it was an complete honor to get an interview on thatMLMbeat.TV with one of the most influential bloggers of the network marketing industry, and  in my opinion the Father of MLM blogging, Ty Tribble.

Ty started blogging about network marketing at a time when most people never even knew what the word ‘blog’ meant. In this time he has completed more than 5,000 posts, which averages at about 2 blog posts per day.

That is some SERIOUS consistent blogging!

So naturally, if there is anything that you need to know on the topic of MLM Blogging, Ty is the one to be asking.

There is one thing in this industry that I take really seriously, and that is to choose your mentors wisely.

One of my mentors on personal development drilled this into my head quite some time ago. There are simply far too many ‘experts’ in network marketing teaching you how to be successful without the experience to back it up.

While it’s important for leaders to step up and become leaders, it’s more important to follow in the footsteps of those who have achieved real, proven results.

Off the topic, but personally I think this is the biggest cause of MLM Failure, choosing the wrong leadership.

And when it comes to MLM Blogging, nobody to the best of my knowledge has achieved the outstanding results that Ty has.

Ty was  the fastest distributor to reach a $100,000 income out of 50,000 distributors using his Blog as his core foundation.

Enough said! 🙂 Enjoy the interview!

We were suppose to chat for 10 minutes, but we got a little carried away. And as you can imagine, there was no way that I was going to cut the interview short.

Watch out for part 2 of this interview which should be up soon.

After many requests from our members, Ty agreed to answer a few blogging questions personally for thatMLMbeat members. You can watch the video here where Ty shares his MLM blog secrets.

Last, but definitely not least, you can grab Ty’s three free online training dvd’s about Blogging For Prospects.

MLM Success Stories: Network Marketers Who Eliminate ALL Excuses – Part 1

Best MLM Compensation plans, company statistics, non me too products, best leadership, best teams are all great facts to promote your network marketing business.

However, NOTHING makes quite an emotional impact  like an inspiring, true MLM Success story.

Yes, we all enjoy a good (even bad) story which we can relate to. Stories are also the ultimate way to clarify any unanswered questions that anyone might have before joining your business.

What would you rather listen to: an explanation of statistics, product statistics and company history? Or a real MLM success story accomplished by a real person that you and I can relate to?

Enough said! 🙂

Well, I want to share with you a story like no other.

Here is one that will not only inspire you, but also eliminate all the excuses that might cross ones mind before taking action. Be sure to pass this one on.

Meet Dave Kotecki

Dave Kotecki runs his network marketing business successfully in an environment that is equal to most peoples worse nightmare.

Yes, a country no other than Afghanistan.

Besides being extremely dangerous and life threatening, Dave also deals with limited internet connectivity, small living quarters and limited time.

Yet, his business is growing rapidly day by day. Instead of using his circumstances as the perfect excuse, Dave rather focuses on doing what he can do when he can do it.

What more can I say other than watch the videos and checkout Dave’s Blog and connect with him on thatMLMbeat.

I hope that inspired you!

Do you have one or have someone in your team with an MLM Success story we should know about? Contact us so that we can share it to the Network Marketing world.

Now what was that excuse again? 🙂

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

[Showcase] Great Member Blogs And How You Can Create The Same

Whether you use thatMLMbeat to simply syndicate your existing MLM Blog or if your primary blog is hosted here with us, either scenario is a representation of YOU and your personal brand.

Are your first impressions impressive or do they scare your potential business partners away?

Most importantly, is there something for your blog visitors to do once they have read your post or seen your video? Can they connect with you on Twitter or opt in to your mailing list?

Adding your blog to thatMLMbeat is a great easy way to build links, get more traffic and expand your readership to your personal blog, but what happens if they never get there?

If you post an article in a article directory, you have a resource box. If you create a Squidoo lens or a Hubpage, you might do the same or make sure that you have a link back to your Network Marketing blog or sales page.

We need to make sure that you do the same here on ‘the beat’.

So to help you along, I’ve put together a short case study of a few great member blogs who have added some really cool customization features which are really easy to do.

Remember, you only have to do it once.

There are more than 80 Free themes and a further 10 or 20 Premium themes with our PRO Membership.

Too many to choose from?

Sue Waters was kind enough to break them down into a easy to understand format to make it easy to choose which one will work best for you.

Go here to checkout the 100 blog themes review.

These should give you a few great ideas and inspiration.

Here are the featured member blogs:

John Counsel ==> http://johncounsel.thatmlmbeat.com

Melanie Milletics ==> http://melaniemilletics.thatmlmbeat.com/

Cassie Strom ==> http://cassiestrom.thatmlmbeat.com

Marc Menninger ==> http://healthnetworkmarketing.thatmlmbeat.com/

Dave Kotecki ==> http://davekotecki.thatmlmbeat.com

Emma Tiebens ==> http://therelationalmarketer.thatmlmbeat.com/

Then, as referred to as extreme in the video, is the Tribe Mastermind Formula blog.

The Tribe Mastermind Formula blog is a custom group blog for Kary Rogney, Eric Goldstein, Mike Feil and team members. The group / tribe blog allows multiple MLM Business partners or team members to contribute to one blog, share stories, host events for training and mastermind.

Better yet, you can attach your own public or private group and forum and import multiple tweets and RSS feeds to the blog for content syndication.

This is a custom feature that you will see a lot more of on thatMLMBeat in the next coming months.

If you would like to know more information about getting something similar setup for your team or business partners then get in touch with me.

Lastly, if you are in need of a great blog header for your personal or thatMLMbeat blog, order one from Attila. He will design it for free and you will only need to pay once or if you decide to keep it.

I have not met anyone to date that hasn’t been blown away by his attention grabbing graphics.

Questions are most welcome as always in the comment section. Cheers! 🙂

How To Create Dozens Of Blogs For Your MLM Team Or Niche Domination In Seconds

Setting up and managing blogs can be quite frustrating at times.

I am personally guilty of spending way too much time on technicalities of plugins, themes, layout and widgets that don’t contribute to marketing, which should be any top internet and network marketing professionals primary focus.

Furthermore, I’ve seen it happen time again how it brings an entire MLM Team to standstill. They get stuck into figuring out how to blog and social media technicalities instead of getting content up, taking action and building relationships with new prospects.

Now imagine your duplication if everyone in your MLM team is spending time on the how to’s instead of getting into action? That can be as productive as driving with you hand break on!

Be sure to read this post by Diane Hochman for a clear reality check.

That brings us to the first of many classic benefits our PRO Membership offers with our Blog And User Creator tool.

Let’s cover 2 scenarios:

Scenario 1 – MLM Team Blogs

You have 5, 10, 20, even a 100 or more team members that need to start writing articles, doing video blogging and developing content. Instead of spending endless hours getting your team setup with their personal blogs, why not create dozens of blog within seconds and take your team straight into action?

They can still use their own domain name for personal branding and customize their MLM blog with their own blog header. Not much different to owning your own personal blog.

If they need a blog header, our graphics designer will design one for free and you only have to pay if you like it and want to keep it.

Scenario 2 – Keyword and Niche Domination

Using web 2.0 properties for link building and piggy backing off their domain strength is a crucial step in offsite SEO.

{If you are not familiar with the term Offsite SEO, it mainly refers to building backlinks from other valuable and related web sites. Onsite SEO is the optimization that you do on your blog or website.}

The perfect way to increase your ranking in the search engines is to setup remote blogs, a.k.a. satellite sites, on web 2.0 sites like Squidoo, Xanga, hosted WordPress and of course thatMLMbeat! 😉

You then link back with anchor text, like I’m about to do in the next sentence, to the actual post that you want to rank for.

You can read more about this strategy in Front Page On Google In Less Than 18 Hours.

How would you do this on thatMLMbeat?

Well, setup a few remote blogs for keyword targeting and add various 400 – 600 word articles on them!

There is no limit to the amount of blogs you can create, but please use this tool responsibly.

We do not allow cybersquatting (registering domain names for the purpose of holding keywords and not adding any content to the actual blog) and spam MLM blogs get deleted.

No MLM Company names are allowed either.

Other than that… Go Wild!!!

The possibilities of this tool are endless.

If you find any a different use for this tool that you would like to share, please do so in the comments below.

Happy multiple blogging!
