Don't Get Left on the 'Ground Floor'

Written by Joe Bingham

That REALLY makes sense when it comes to business. Say I join up on a 'once in a lifetime opportunity' and it only lasts for 3 months. Well, I plan on living a LOT longer than 3 months, so unlessrepparttar 'once in a lifetime opportunity' nets me about $10 MILLION a month for those 3 months, I think I'll pass.

We all hear allrepparttar 122596 time about how it'srepparttar 122597 'Opportunity of a Lifetime' to get in onrepparttar 122598 'Ground Floor'. Well, I don't know if it will berepparttar 122599 opportunity of a lifetime or not, but isn't 'Ground Floor' just sort of a nice way of saying 'Unproven'?

I heard a statisticrepparttar 122600 other day that says only 10% of Internet businesses last beyondrepparttar 122601 2 year mark. That's hardly a lifetime. Personally, I think that number is very optimistic, too. I'll bet less than 10% of Internet businesses last more than ONE year, at least in Internet marketing circles. So, unless your willing to move your 'Ground Floor' every 3-6 months, you'd better choose carefully.

What most Internet marketers fail to realize is that being in onrepparttar 122602 'Ground Floor' is NOT what makes an opportunity a good one. What's more important to starting a successful business isrepparttar 122603 EXPANDABILITY ofrepparttar 122604 company's market.

I heard a good example at a meeting a couple of nights ago. How many of you would like to get in to selling 8 track tapes? Come on,repparttar 122605 market for 8 tracks used to be HUGE! It was a multi-million dollar market at one time. Of course, we all know that market is dead now, right?

So, if an MLM called "8 Track Mania" wants you to spend $49 to join up and market with them, you'll politely shoo them away and suggest they do some research on a silly little item know as a Compact Disc, won't you?

Onrepparttar 122606 other hand, if a company that did over $600 MILLION worth of business in North America last year explained to you that their name is only recognizable by 2% of their potential market, would you be more inclined to pay them $49 forrepparttar 122607 opportunity to market for them?

That one makes more sense, huh? The second opportunity has a lot more room for growth, and that is what counts.

All of us in Internet marketing were lured here by one of two concepts. One, get rich quick, or two, lifetime residual income.

The Ultimate Sales Organization

The Ultimate Sales Organization

If you want a great sales organization to emulate, you only have to look as far as your local church. Consider these points:

PRODUCT OR SERVICE: What does a church have to offer, but faith? They sell faith to millions of members nationwide. This is not a tangible. It is not even like a life insurance policy. A life insurance policy leaves money for your family when you are gone. Faith leaves only hope. If they can get people to buy faith alone, shouldn't you be able to sell people your opportunity or products?

FREE DISTRIBUTORS: Religious organizations have many thousands of organization members out beatingrepparttar bushes each week, trying to bring in new recruits. Best of all, they do all this without compensation! If religious organizations can fire up thousands of people to go out and promote their interests for free, why is it you have so many problems firing up your downline when they get paid for their efforts?

How is it a religious organization is able to accomplish these feats? It is simple. They have it down to a system. One that has been tried and proven for centuries.

Take your typical church service. Almost all of them arerepparttar 122595 same. They start out with singing to getrepparttar 122596 crowd fired up and motivated. Then they immediately hit them withrepparttar 122597 collection plate, whenrepparttar 122598 excitement ofrepparttar 122599 singing will insure they are willing to giverepparttar 122600 most. They then follow up withrepparttar 122601 sermon, which usually has a fiery message and a strong close, and then almost beg those who are willing to join to come on down and sign up!

Why is it most church services are so similar? Because, it works! Wouldn't this be a good model for an opportunity meeting? Of course,repparttar 122602 singing might be a little awkward, but you could replace it with a very strong motivational speaker.
