Network marketing and mlm: the silent giants

Network Marketing and Mlm: the Silent Giants

Robert Kiyosaki talks about all these new things that develop in the background and take over other known giants. For instance, he talks about those new ways to communicate that are suddenly making travelling for business a lot less necessary. Why do you need to fly from New York from LA and then to Japan when you can get everybody on a free conference call or even video conference?

Then he talks about the power of network marketing and MLM in that respect. And it makes so much sense to me! There is going to be a point where people realize that there is no reason why one good idea or product should benefit just one person.

Everybody uses network marketing. Yes, I mean it! EVERYBODY! Don’t you ever tell your friends about the last great restaurant you tried? About the last store you went to that had great sales? Look at something like facebook? How many of us just linked to our address book to tell people about facebook. Just imagine if you got 5 bucks every time your friends went to that restaurant you like, or for every item they buy in that store or for every friend who signs up for facebook!! Now imagine that you get 4 bucks for all the friends of your friends, and 3 for the friends of your friends of your friends… You get my drift? It makes so much sense!!

There is no doubt that THIS is the future. People want to take charge of their future and their destiny. They are fed up with the same people making all the money. The world is a better place. Successful people are the ones who GIVE to others.

Why is Microsoft so successful and made Bill Gates and Steve Jobs billionaires? Just think back 15-20 years ago. How hard would it be to live without a computer? So if YOU discover a great product, you will genuinely want to share it with your friends. So why should you not get a cut? It just makes sense!

I have referred hundreds of people to things like Skype, Facebook, Plaxo, all sorts of networking sites. Wow, would I be rich if all of these were network marketing companies! The truth is that I just did it because I like the people I referred and I really think that they could gain from it. I am not asking from anything back in return and it is beneficial for all of us because we get to communicate better and more cheaply. Wouldn’t it be only fair that we share the financial results?

It just makes sense. Some people are starting to see it. If you are reading this, you are one of those people. You’re like the people who went ahead and invested in this obscure company called Microsoft or Fedex. You are part of the Silent Giants. See you at the top in 10 years!

Manage your time to earn more in less time

Manage your Time to Earn More in Less Time

People talk about the 80/20 rule quite a bit.

20% of your customers produce 80% of your profits.

80% of your problems come from 20% of the customers.

20% of your activities produce 80% of your results.

Let’s talk about this in regard to how you’re spending your time. Since 80% of your activities only produce 20% of your results, and the other 20% of your activities are producing 80% of your results…wouldn’t you be better off concentrating only the 20%?

Let’s say someone works 12 hour days. It’s almost unbelievable to me that people work that much, but I’ve spoken with MANY who do so. Sure I could understand and have done a 12 hour day right before a vacation or on the last day of finishing a project. But working that long every single day? That’s the surefire recipe for a breakdown, both physically and mentally.

Applying the 80/20 rule to their 12 hour days means the 80% is 9.6 hours and the 20% is 2.4 hours. If we cut out the 80% that isn’t producing very well for them, we would only have 2.4 hour days. Now there’s a schedule I like.

Something I often suggest to my coaching clients is to make an activity log for the next week. Every day, simply list all the activities for the day and how long it took you to do them. At the end of the week rate each of those activities by how well it is building your business.

You’re going to find you’re wasting way too long on certain activities.

You may find like many of my clients these activities include:

– Reading too many blogs (Limit the number you subscribe to)

– Subscribing to Internet marketing newsletters that only sell without providing good quality content.

– Answering Email All Day (no more than twice per day and shoot for once per day or less)

– Surfing the Forums (I can’t think of a bigger waste of time if you’re not there for the purpose of generating traffic by participating)

– Calling Someone Without a Specific Plan in mind (you can waste an hour with no results – keep it short and planned)

All of the above are activities people do to make them FEEL like they’re working instead of doing any real work. They also consume your day.

What are you personally doing that is wasting your time?

What do you do to replace the real work of your business?

Usually these are activities that consume much of your day…and don’t show any real results at the end. They are part of the 80% producing only 20% of the results.

Next ask yourself which activities really bring in the cash.

For example, for me, these cash producers include:

#1 – Writing (used for the blog, new products, and article submissions)

#2 – Copywriting (sales copy for my sites, tests, and emails)

#3 – Product Development (recording videos and doing interviews to create products)

#4 – Business Development (creating systems for others to do the work – could also be listed as the real #1 cash producer but I love the writing part the best)

Where do I waste my time?

I asked myself this question lately and had to answer I had slacked on following my own email rule (answering no more than twice per day max which I do for the coaching clients). So I’m pushing myself strictly back to this.

I’ve also allowed myself to check the comments on my blog too often. So for the time being I’m turning off blog comments. For me they are part of the 80% that’s not really producing the results.

Be honest with yourself…and figure out where you waste your time. What parts of your business are the 20% producing 80% of the results? Which parts are the 80% only producing 20% of the results? What can you eliminate or outsource immediately?
