MLM: Powerlines vs. Downlines

Written by Bethany Davis

Take every program that doesn't include a powerline system and trash it! This may seem like a bold statement, but byrepparttar time you finish reading this article, you will understand why.

The Multi-level-marketing industry has exploded overrepparttar 105672 last couple of years. Billion dollar giants worldwide are getting in onrepparttar 105673 hype because they realize it will make their company more money. Internet users worldwide are also getting involved because ofrepparttar 105674 endless opportunities to make some money as well.

In MLM, everybody wins!... that is, unless you're like most of us who get fed up with buying into promises that don't deliver results. The countless hours of advertising with nothing to show for it. The maxed out credit cards and empty bank accounts.

The #1 reason most people fail in MLM is because ofrepparttar 105675 downline system. And here's why...

In most MLM's, you are required to build what's called a "downline", or rather promoterepparttar 105676 company and have people sign up under you. Only once people sign up will you qualify to earn commissions.

But therein liesrepparttar 105677 problem...

Most people don't haverepparttar 105678 ability to build even one downline on their own, let alone several. Even worse, ifrepparttar 105679 program's compensation plan requires that multiple powerlines are built BEFORE you can achieve high-dollar status,repparttar 105680 chance of financial success is even less likely.

Imagine with me for a moment...

Let's say that you want to open up a retail store downtown. Would you ever in your wildest dreams walk down town, pick a location, open for business, begin advertising and within a few days ofrepparttar 105681 grand opening, go down and open up five more retail stores, one right next torepparttar 105682 other on main street.

The Lazy Man's Way To Building a Massive List In Minimum Time

Written by Daniel Kelly

As you read every word of this article, you'll be stunned by how quickly and easily you can build a massive list of opt- in subscribers without spending a fortune. (The idea is to make money, not spend money. Right?)

I'll get right torepparttar point...

It can be a real pain inrepparttar 105671 butt trying to build an opt-in list usingrepparttar 105672 "old school" methods of list building that every Internet marketing guru out there is teaching these days.

They tell you... "Use pop ups and pop unders, delayed pops, and exit pops", "Put a subscription box on every page of your website", "Use Pay-Per-Click (PPC) search engines to drive traffic to your opt-in page", etc. etc. etc.

Those methods are OK, in my opinion. If you're using them now and they are effective for you, continue using them. If you're not, I'd suggest that you at least experiment with them to see if they work for your situation.


The two biggest problems you'll face usingrepparttar 105673 "old school" methods are... either it takes way too much of YOUR TIME or it costs way too much of YOUR MONEY to build a list of any respectable size.

(Inrepparttar 105674 BizOp, MLM, and Internet marketing arenas, many potential joint venture partners won't even talk to you unless your list has at least 50,000 - 100,000 subscribers.)


Very simple...

Instead of waiting for customers to come to you (which you have to do even with PPC search engines)...

You can BUY subscribers.

That's right! There are companies out there that will sell yourepparttar 105675 names and email addresses of people that have REQUESTED information about business opportunities.


There are 8 things you want to look for from any lead/subscriber source.

Here they are:

1. 100% Opt-In: You want to buyrepparttar 105676 contact information of people that have actively requested more information. There are various methods of capturing contact information. Some leads sources sell you names that came from CD-ROM that has 12 million names on it. Some lead sources pre-checkrepparttar 105677 subscription box, so many of their leads didn't know that they were going to be sent any information from you. You want to make sure that allrepparttar 105678 names you buy have explicitly requestedrepparttar 105679 information that you are going to send them.

2. Targeted: You want Business Opportunity Seekers ONLY! What good is it ifrepparttar 105680 names you buy really just wanted to be on someone's joke list or recipe newsletter? I'll tell you... Absolutely NOTHING! Actually, less than nothing if you get a lot of SPAM complaints and your ISP bans you from sending emails or your email addresses ends up on blacklists all throughoutrepparttar 105681 Internet.

3. Only "Fresh" Leads: Plain and simple... The olderrepparttar 105682 list,repparttar 105683 less responsive it will be to your offer. As time goes by, people become less and less interested in what they requested information on. The more time between their initial request and your first contact,repparttar 105684 easier it is for them to forget that they even requested information. My personal recommendation is that you never buy leads that are over 30 days old, unless you can get them at a steep discount.
