Why You Should NOT Recruit on Social Media ...


If you were just getting ready to kick off your week by hunting for some new people on Facebook, I don't want to spoil your plans.

However, if you're even thinking about using Social Media for business, here’s something you need to know.

Imagine you go to a party. You’re having a good time, hanging out with old friends and catching up with people you haven’t seen in awhile.

Suddenly someone you’ve never met before comes up to you, introduces themselves, and a minute later starts selling you their business opportunity.

Would that immediately turn you off?

Absolutely.

You’re there for a party. Not a sales presentation.


Well, that’s how most people who are prospected on Facebook feel.




They are there to look at pictures, connect with friends, and check their news feed to basically kill time and get some entertainment.


NOT to be pitched.

I think when most network marketers hear about using Social Media to recruit, they take it literally, and actually try to recruit people on Facebook.

And that's a BIG mistake.

You don’t sponsor people on Facebook. You connect with them. And only after you make that connection, you move the conversation to your business.

That’s the right way to prospect and recruit with Social Media.

Which is exactly how network marketing superstar Julie Burke, personally sponsored 278 people and built a team of over 8,300 reps, through Social Media.

She reveals her entire step-by-step enrollment strategy on THIS PAGE.

If you want to use Facebook to find people for your team and grow your business, just model what Julie has done.

You can get your hands on her recruiting blueprint right here...

How I Quit Online Marketing and Still Make Money Online!

How I Quit Online Marketing and Still Make Money Online ...I even cancelled my Aweber account!

Huh ? What?  Are you nuts?

I 'm sure a lot of people reading this may think I've gone off the deep end and maybe rightfully so but... I found my "Niche" I found my path to my version of success and it does not include doing everything all the big "GURU"s are doing...Maybe some things but not everything.

Quick back ground - I have been trying to market online now for well over 15 years. Go all the way back to Amway when they switched to Quixtar!  Ya.. That long.  Most of you will not remember that train wreck but it's out there.

So what's the problem -  Here are the walls I continue to run into and I know most everybody out there do as well. Some push through (congrats!) Most do not... (welcome to my world).

Time and Money.

Time - We all have the same 24 hours in a day and one of the first things you have to be able to do is commit to the hours you need to learn marketing and grow your business.

Money - If you want to push you business forward you will need to invest money into it. The reason we get started in a business in the first place is to make more money. However if you do not have the money or the resources to get the money...you are at a disadvantage from the get go, IE ....

*You have to buy courses to learn this stuff... period.  ( I did off and on over the years)

*You have to have money to buy software or tools to get more out of your time. ( I have and still do when it makes since to do so)

* You need money to advertise your business because ...you do not have enough time in the day if you are working full time, raising a family  and have other commitments to contact enough people day in and day out to grow your business effectively.

THAT SAID IT CAN BE DONE AND MAYBE YOU ARE SOMEBODY WHO CAN PUSH THROUGH AND GET IT DONE BUT ... MOST CAN AND OR WILL NOT.

They are not lazy (most of them) ... it's just the overwhelm and frustration will wear you down and other opportunities come along ... or paying the bills and feeding the family just have to be priority #1 and that's that.

So what am I doing different that you may be able to use to help grow your online marketing business?

I went back to some basics. I am using some verbiage learned from my Amway days. I am leveraging the tools already in place on the internet, the one's that do not cost me a dime... or at least a lot less than many of the programs / tools available out there today.

I'm not being cheap! I have invested" money over the years.... A lot fo money actually.

Amway - went to a couple conventions, bought tapes and books and so forth

Blog training - Bought a $300 course

eBay - Bought into another $300 Course

Blog / Web sites - Paid monthly fees and purchased plug ins

Business Memberships - Can't even begin to count up the money invested monthly on those.

Social Media  - Purchased a few tools and apps to help build the list and save time.  

...and so on and so on just like most people are doing today

SO YES ...those investments have given some return and helped to teach me along too have the knowledge I have today! ...but I still was not making any money.

Now I am working on streamlining my business efforts to money making activities instead of just investing and or investing for the sake of investing into the next new training or program that comes out each week... (shiny object)

Here is the RUB,..all the big guru's really do not teach what I am doing because they want you to buy there products and teaching material....they want you dependent on them.

Well why wouldn't they? ... That's why they got into business also. Right? Sure it is!

What  I have figured out for myself, some will agree and some will disagree and that's fine, is that I can LEVERAGE all the FREE platforms out there and let the GURU's do the work for me so that I can still make money online and not take up extra time learning how to do all the following...

All I need to do is send some traffic.

I do not need to write emails emails every day
I do not need to build landing pages every day
I do not need to build sale funnels everyday
I do not need to develop lead generation products everyday
I d not need to do video's everyday
I do not need to write blog posts everyday

I just need to send the traffic to the folks who do and let those funnels  / systems do the heavy lifting for me!! 

Make since?

Have I developed some crazy product to teach how to do this?

NOPE!

Have I bought into some guru's program that teaches how to do this and I am sending you to it?

NOPE Again!

Then how are you making any money Jeff?

Simple.

I sell physical and affiliate products from already existing platforms like ...

eBay
Facebook
YouTube
Blogger
Amazon

..and a couple other E-commerce sites I am starting to work with like Bonanza

I invest my money into physical product ether buying it myself up front and shipping it once a customer purchases or I drop ship it once a customer purchases.

I also then do a little teaching and sharing on Video's / Blog Post and with in Social Media groups where those seeking answers will see other "Affiliate Products" are available.

These affiliate products all have landing pages (well most)  for passive list building  (on there nickle not mine) and ultimately purchases are made that just randomly show up in my accounts. ... normally Click-Bank or JVZOO.

It all came down to this - I like doing a video or a blog posts on occasion, like this one ...and I understand the importance of consistency in building up the SEO and a Following.

However...

There is only so much time in the day and so much money in the budget to run programs that take time to build before you start getting a return on your investment.

Soooooo.... I am more interested in "Quick Turnaround" and that means finding platforms to sell from that get the product sold quicker building up some "cash" to work with but still leaving you room for passive income down the road as you grow.

Make since?

PLUS  - I want to be on the golf course this summer and not in front of a computer screen stressing over an email,  daily blog post or video to keep my ranking up hoping that one post might just be the sale I needed that day...I simply prefer to let the Guru's do that work for me!

POINT OF THIS BLOG POST?

Just wanted to say thank you to my mentors and friends over the years ... Chuck Bartok, Chef Katrina and many others for working with me, following me or being on my email list.

I am still around actively working and growing but am no longer doing most of all that is involved in Online Marketing as most come to know it.

I am busy listing and selling products, making the occasional video and yes even writing the occasional blog post but on a different path than what we have been on in the past.

Anybody reading this and wanting to follow a similar path please comment below and we will chat. My sharing of knowledge is always FREE but certain tools and training I recommend still may have a investment attached to them.

Happy Selling!

How To Use Google Key Word Planner For eBay

How To Use Google Key Word Planner For eBay When Listing Your Item!

There are 3 key areas in listing your items on eBay or other platforms that will make or break your positioning in the eBay searches.

In short this is called SEO ( Search Engine Optimization).

You are optimizing your chances for your listing to be found by a customer typing in key words into the eBay or even Google, Yahoo and Bing Search bars!

The #1 Spot to get right is your Titles!

WATCH VIDEO!



The key here is to use as many of the characters allowed as you an in your titles ...With out unnecessary verbiage.

I have found making sure to say exactly what the item is ....

IE: Coffee Mug Darth Vader Star Wars Trilogy Death Star Tie Fighter

works a lot better than...

IE: Large White Star Wars Darth Vader Coffee Mug

Why?

You want to make sure you tell what it is and then fill in the extra descriptive keywords around it.

This helps the search engine identify the primary category it is in and then the descriptive keywords drill it down to the  page of listings that are most relevant.

Now of course many other factors go into getting your eBay listing on page one .. Your descriptions, Pictures, Pricing, Feedback Scores and more.

BUT ...

The titles are a key factor and when done correctly even if you are priced higher than other sellers you can be found outside of the primary category making your item stand out among similar items.

Happy Selling!

How To Ue The eBay App On your Smart Phone ...

How To Ue The eBay App On your Smart Phone To Scan Bar Codes!

Gotta love the Facebook groups where you can learn something new every day.

If you need to scan some items ( bar codes) to see what they are being listed for on eBay open your eBay app and touch the search box. When you do a scanning icon will appear on the right side at the top.



Instead of typing in keywords just  hit the scanner icon allow it to use your camera on your smart phone and hold it over the code.

I tried it out on one of the Golf Glove boxs I show in the video and it worked like a charm!

How To Edit Your Categories In your eBay Store


How to Edit Catagories on eBay and find your Manage My eBay store page.

I went back and did a google search for this information and found it to be outdated because eBay has made a lot of changes to there pages, tabs ad drop downs.

I figured if I had trouble finding it you may have also had trouble locating your My Ebay Store Page so you could edit your ebay categories.

Here it is in a nut shell ...




GO TO:
eBay -->

eBay Selling -->
Overview -->
Scroll down too selling tools -->
Click manage store -->
Left Hand Side - Edit Categories! 


Once inside you can now edit your eBay store categories and update your category keywords

Using store categories and using the key word tools inside of the categories helps with you SEO ( Search Engine Optimization) for your listings.

I highly recommend using categories inside your eBay store if you are a store owner because with all the competition out there we need every little advantage we can get.

I feel very confident saying that the majority of eBay sellers do not know or take the time to use this information!

Have a great sourcing / listing / selling day and if you found this information useful please share with the social media tabs provided below.

Happy Selling!
