Problems Posting Craigslist Classifieds

Having Problems Posting On Craigslist.craigslist


Looking at the post above, you can see that Craigslist is deleting all my posts.  The only one that is not deleted here is a post that is ghosted by Craigslist.

Craigslist is a great source of leads for any business, and my business partner Brian Jones is a Craigslist expert.  We have to get this worked out in order to generate leads for my Empower Network business.


After spending the last few years working systems like My Lead System Pro (MLSP) and Empower Network, I stumbled across My Proven Way (MPW).

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with MLSP, but I have found that the learning curve is HUGE for a newbie network marketer to get up and running …
generating their own leads.

There are systems out there that can produce leads, but really, how many network marketers are just not equipped to start building their own blog, create capture pages, learn how to write, spin, and submit articles, purchase the software needed to do those things, learn pay per click, create facebook fan pages, set up auto responders…Are you starting to get the picture.  The list keeps going.

I have put together this video that shows the system that I have been using and teaching my organization to use.  It can be DUPLICATED!

My Proven Way, Little Ticket To Wealth, and the Secret Lead Factory provide a great system for the average network marketer to use to start generating quality leads immediately.

How to organize and save passwords and username information has always eluded me.  As a marketer, I have over the last few years joined program after program or purchased different software programs to accomplish a task.

How many times have you had to go back through your old emails looking for a password or username?  I used to especially hate it when I had to go back and find information from years ago.

I ran across a simple little technique that you can use to store any kind of information including your usernames and passwords.  The cool thing is…you do it on notepad, and you can use the search function to find it wherever it is on your notepad. Read the rest of this entry

2 Network Marketing Tips To Explode Your Business

network marketing tipsThere are 2 Network Marketing tips that I wished that I had when I first got gotten started in network marketing years ago.  I, like most people getting started, did not have a clue.  I thought that if I just got a few friends started in the business, it would be smooth sailing from then on.  WRONG!  You see most people may have a dream, but they just don’t know how to set the dream in motion.  New Reps have good intentions, but without the right mentors and systems in place, they are doomed to fail.

MLM Sponsoring Secrets Of The Top 3%

MLM SponsoringMLM Sponsoring is the lifeblood of any network marketing business, and for most it is a daunting task.  Most new networkers get into a business hoping they can sponsor a couple of people and hope that they will get rich as a result.  You know the old whiteboard trick showing a rep that if they sponsor 2 and they sponsor 2 and they sponsor 2, after a year, you will have 1760 reps in your business.  That looks good on paper, but in reality, it really doesn’t work, so what do the leaders in network marketing do that makes them an MLM success?

Problems Prospecting In Network Marketing?

Are you having problems prospecting in network marketing.  One of the biggest issues facing network marketers today is finding people to talk to.  Do you get the cold sweats when you think about approaching someone to talk to them about your business.  In your mind, you are thinking…I know he or she is not interested in what I am doing.   Have you been rejected time and time again, and has your level of self confidence been shattered like a mirror being hit by a golf ball.  (I did that on a driving range in front of a lot of people…very embarrassing).

I got interrupted tonight by another one of those annoying voice broadcast messages telling me that they had the latest greatest lead and cash generating machine the marketing industry has ever seen.

I hate to admit it, but I was curious enough to take a look, but right in the middle of their corny video, IT HIT ME.

Gurus will be gurus, and really, most of them are selling you something and have never made a dime in network marketing.  They are throwing up the same old story about how the people selling the tools made most of the money during the California gold rush.  They are trying to sell you a system to sell the system.

Have you ever heard the phrase “Don’t leave money on the table”? Well, throw that thought out the window because leaving a little “money” on the table can and will make your wallet fat. Most of what I have written on my blog has been related to online marketing, because that is all the rage, but if you have a networking business, you HAVE to do a little offline marketing to be successful.

Much online marketing coins the slogan “be the hunted, not the hunter”, but it seems that most offline marketing adopts the hunter mindset. What I am about to share with you is one of the best offline marketing stratagies I have ever seen, and it enables you to still remain the hunted.

First off let me give some kudos to my friend Cedric Harris who really turned me on to this strategy and the game behind it. You see, you got to have a little fun while you are marketing, or it will become work. Now, if you are like me, you walk through the streets thinking that certain people would be great prospects, but you just don’t want to come across as a complete idiot by stopping them and spamming them with your business idea.

TA DA! The drop card. And I am not talking about any old business card, but a card that will actually get some attention. We have all seen business cards laying around places, and really who cares. The drop cards that will be an effective voice in your business will be $100 bill drop cards. These cards will look just like a $100 bill folded in half, and your message will be in the center. Benjamin Franklin is now your business partner and he is going to help you build your primary business.

Don’t get ahead of me here. We are not going to leave these things sitting on top of the urinals in the men’s restroom. I don’t know where you ladies leave yours, but you get the picture. These drop cards strategically placed can and will market your business to people that you would never come into contact with otherwise. Moreover, these strategies are duplicatable and easy to do.

Following are some of the best strategies and places to drop a card:

  • The Gas Station – Everyone pumps gas a couple or more times a week. Take a card and insert it into the credit card slot. The next patron will have to learn about your opportunity. If he doesn’t like it, he will probably throw it on the ground where the next guy can find it. If you are aggressive, most stations have 6 to 20 pumps…you get the picture.
  • Junk Mail – Ha! I like this one alot. Everyone gets 4 or 5 pieces of junk mail everyday. These junk mail pieces such as credit card apps have a return envelope that has postage prepaid back to their origin to return applications and etc. The people in the mail room of these business are making $10 per hour. Put a drop card in the envelope and send it back to the company. You could literally have 20 or more drop cards per week going out using this method.
  • Newspaper Stands – Put a quarter in a new paper box and stuff all the papers left inside the box with your drop card. Definitely worth a quarter to reach 10 to 20 new customers. This would include real estate books and auto trader magazines.
  • Book Stores – If you want to target the “entrepreneural” type, slip into your local bookstore and browse through the self help and business sections where you will find such titles as “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and “The Secret”. The readers of those types of books need to learn about your opportunity.
  • Housekeepers and Waitresses – Do you leave tips? If you leave good tips, you can throw in a drop card along with your tip. If you are not a good tipper, don’t embarrass yourself. A note might be appropriate to go along with your drop card. “I know housekeeping might not be the most lucrative job in the world, but if you would like to earn a little extra from the comfort of your home…check out my website.”

These are just a few ideas, but hopefully this will give you an idea of a very fun and duplicatable way to grow your business offline. Think about the numbers. What if 20 people in your team drop 10 cards a day for a month. If my math is correct, that would be 6000 + exposures to your business. A 1 % conversion would bring 60 people into your business. I like that.

A couple of great quotes to use on the inside of your card:

“If you want to work all your life that’s your business, if not that’s my business.” yourwebsite.com

“Disappointed? Don’t be! I can show you how to make 25 – 30 real ones every month.” yourwebsite.com
