Do You Need to "TWITTER"??

With the onslaught of "Social Networking", one has to ask... why???

Are these socially-oriented sites just another form of "match-makers" or "lonely hearts clubs" ???? Or do we really find an attraction in following along with the "personal goings-on" in some one else's life??
Is it the same sort of "popularity" that has given rise to the surge in the so-called "reality" shows on TV where we think we are seeing what other people do or would do in particular circumstances?? Or is it just the "voyeurism" hidden in the human psyche that provides us with a needed sense of comparing ourselves to some level of "predictable norm"??
Whatever it is..... we should realize that "reality shows" are not real; and what people say in their "innermost diaries" or their "public" social posts are still usually manipulative and hardly "real".

I find these social networking sites a hugh distraction and waste of valuable time. But, I know there are plenty of you that may disagree. I am always open to (and would honestly like to) hear views from any of you that feel differently and can help point out their "value".

Having said all this, you can well imagine that I don't find much use for Social Network involvement in or its application in Affiliate Marketing.

Don't think you're the "PIED PIPER"

I think too many of us...particularly those following the principles of "Attraction Marketing" and many of the techniques shown in Mike Dillard's "Magnetic Sponsoring";
may get caught up in the trap of trying to act like "The Pied Piper".
Your customers (aka Clients) are NOT rats who can be led by "attraction" into the waters of Hamelin!
I'm sure most of us do not intentionally think that way to begin with......but in the RUSH of grabbing followers, customers, clients, seems that we end up relying on the "autoresponders" to pass our word along instead of using more personal means.
I'm not trying to say that we should ignore the use of the various technical advantages that are out there now; but just remember that there is a "face" on the other end of that Email!
This will truly give you the "edge" that you seek!!

The Team System - MLM Way

If you've not heard of this. You definitely need to check it out.
If you are involved with any marketing efforts to earn money, this will be something to seriously consider. I am personally endorsing it .....and have signed on to be a Personal MLM Coach for the "Team System" !!

What is it about??

Well, its basically a relatively newer spin-off of the Affiliate marketing craze.....called "Attraction Marketing", it's a great "makes sense" program centered around "Branding" and multi-level marketing (aka MLM System). One of the big advantages it has is the great support base of training videos that take you thru each step. It can be applied to ANYTHING you are in business with... or thinking to get in business with! Any vendor, any product or service!

I Woke Up this morning!!

Sure enough....I just finished posting last night; and wake up this morning and find my own advice from my last post glaring at me on the news from AOL!!

"Marketing in the digital age offers entrepreneurs a bewildering array of enticing tools. But how to test them all with limited resources?
Answer: Only pursue the ones that align most closely with your strategic marketing plan. If you don't have a plan, prepare to blow a lot of precious cash on cool ideas that promise the world and deliver little -- not because they are bad ideas, but because they are bad ideas for your company."

Roger that!!

Beginning Advice

The best advice I've heard since starting in the Affiliate Marketing business is "Make a positive improvement (no matter how little) EVERY SINGLE DAY!!" It does take matter what they say! But if you stick to it and make those positive steps each and every will happen. You will reach goals that you may not even have anticipated.
Put together an overall plan or strategy on what you want to do. Then do something each day to improve it. Make a little list if you have to, but stick to it.
The nice part about "working at home" can make your own schedule. You can do many of the things you need to at 2 a.m. or 3 p.m. or just whenever you want.
Make it fit your day's plans...but DO IT!!
Many of the stories you read on some of the links to different opportunities will describe how quickly some have made money or how little time it took!! Don't be deceived because we all know those results are NOT typical...and are isolated exceptions.
Most successful affiliate marketers will tell you that it is only the "determined" ones who develop a plan and carry it out....steadily over a period of time that end up making $$.
You have to start pick your weapons and use your resources wisely!!

Let's hear some stories from others.

Ready or Not...Here it Comes !
