A New Day

This is a beginning of a new day.

God has given me the day to use as I will.

I can waste it - or use it for good,
but what I do today is important because
I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving in its place something that I traded for it.

I want it to be gain and not loss,

good and not evil,

success and not failure,

in order that I shall not regret
the price that I have paid for it.

NEW: Design Dashboard from Marlon Sanders

Memo from: Mike Stokes
Re: New Design Dashboard

Web site: http://www.DesignDashboardDirect.com/

Do you need to design:

* Web sites?
* Sales pages?
* Mini sites?
* Blog graphics?
* Affiliate pre-sell pages?
* Landing pages?

You point.
You click.
You follow the big blue numbers.


What could be simpler?

It's A to Z.

All step-by-step screen caps supported
by videos where needed.

It's a MASSIVE time saver and literally
takes the pain out of the learning curve.

Here's what it does for you:

End Result:

a. Your own custom web site graphics
that are a cut above

b. You will do your own header graphics
faster than you may imagine

c. You will know how to do special effects
like scanlines and handwritten notes

d. You will be able to trick out templates
you buy or create your own

e. You save costs (No Photoshop CS or Dreamweaver needed)

f. You will get step-be-step instructions on ftp,
getting your shopping cart up, hooking up your
autoresponders, stick letters, fly ins, and
every other detail we could think of.

g. Saves you the costs of design fees.
At $150-$300 per header, just ONE and
you've paid for this product.

h. Even if you still use a designer,
there are times when you need it NOW,
not later.
You 100% can do it yourself and be surprised
at how good a job you DID!

i. You can create your OWN templates just
as good as many of 'em you buy --
and do it fast, once you learn the steps.

j. Most templates are NOT designed for "our type" of sites.
So they're never quite right.
You can do it yourself, get a better result AND save.

The Part-Time Millionaire Revisited

The Part-Time Millionaire
Business System


From:
Mike Stokes
Destin, FL
Sunday 6:06 AM

This can be a picture
of YOUR business
.

Here's what I do:

I have a few ads running online.

I get several (or a lot of)
GREAT leads every day.

You don't need many
when they're GOOD.

Quite often, they call me first.

I love that.

Makes for a very pleasant conversation.

Or, I may call 2 or 3 of the leads.

Takes maybe 30 minutes total.

Sometimes we really hit it
off and talk for hours.

Anyway, I don't worry about
the outcome of the call.

All I want to do is introduce myself,
and meet someone new, a fellow marketer.

Ask one or two simple questions.

Point them to some really good
FREE information in my system.

Let them sell themselves.

I do this when I'm at home,
and when I'm in a hotel on
the beach, like I am now.

A portable business only
requires a laptop computer
and a cell phone (or two).

Sound simple?

It is.

Stop spinning your wheels.

skilled and experienced mentor that
is “Walking-the-Walk.”

If You're Not Enrolling 5-10 People Per Month...

If You're Not Enrolling 5-10 People
Per Month in Your MLM...

You're Doing Something Very Wrong.

==> How do you enroll 300 people?

==> How do you stop the failure?

==> When will the pain of MLM stop?

TWO things are certain:

1- You keep advertising your MLM program.

(and)

2- No one is interested.

Tell me, what is the LAST thing
a fellow networker wants to see?

It's another MLM ad.

Think about it...

The MOST aggravating thing "we" see
is another MLMer trying to pitch us.

For the simple fact that we are
already IN another MLM.

Nonetheless, 99.9% of all networkers
continue to waste time and money
(not to mention their best earning years)
investing in ads that alienate the market!

Listen, if you would simply learn how to
get people to WANT what you're selling,
you could enroll 100s of people, as I
have, and you could make boo-koo bucks.

As I have.

So how many people did you enroll last month?

Did your organization grow or weaken?

Listen to this...

If you were selling vacuum cleaners
door to door for Electrolux, you
would NOT knock on doors and ask
everyone...

"Who wants to buy?"

Because NO ONE needs a vacuum cleaner.

They ALREADY have one.

Just like NO ONE needs another MLM.

They ALREADY HAVE ONE.

"Hello, M'am, my name is Larry from Electrolux.
I KNOW you do NOT need a vacuum cleaner...

But I make $5 from the company for every house
that lets me in to vacuum their floors.

THAT is the USP (unique selling proposition)
of vacuum cleaner reps.

==> Everyone loves FREE.

==> Everyone HATES to vacuum.

==> Everyone WANTS their house vacuumed FREE.

"C'mon in," says the housewife.

"Go ahead, and swab the date mate," she says.

Larry flicks on the vacuum...

Rooom-rooom-rooom...

Larry says, "Mrs. Smith...

Have you ever seen such a cool vacuum?"

"Look how well it works..."

"Here, YOU try it, Mrs. Smith."

(Expose, involve, upgrade)

Long story short...

Larry sells Mrs. Smith on a
$1300 NEW vacuum cleaner.

But it's "only $13.98 per month for 19 years!"

That is FORMULA SELLING.

Works like crazy.

And guess what?

www.StokesMedia.com is
ALL ABOUT formula selling.

==> How to get other networkers
to ASK YOU, "Can I join you?"

==> How to build BIG organizations with
as much effort as it takes to place a
few ads...

The RIGHT kind of ads.

Look, you can keep on doing
what you've always done...

And keep on getting what
you've always gotten...

Or, you can learn HOW to big dogs do it.

It's up to you.

Is what you're doing working?

Or is it TIME for a CHANGE?

Your LIFE can change.

First, you have to STOP
advertising your MLM.

Because, you are TURNING
people OFF.

How Does Selling Information Relate to Building a Downline?

How Does Selling Information
Relate to Building a Downline?


Published By:
Mike Stokes
Baton Rouge, La
www.EZPostCardSystem.com

All the "Masters of MLM" use this formula...

Dale Calvert, Big Al, Russell Paley, Robert Blackman,
Mike Stokes, Art Meakin, Joe Schroeder, Rebecca
Slough, David Nelson, Herbalife Hitters,
Amway Hitters, and many more...

99% FAIL in Network Marketing
because 99% TRY to do MLM.


How absurd and ridiculous is this?

"Hi, I'm Joe the Meatman.
I sell meat and seafood door-to-door.
I also do MLM on the side.
Wanna join?
We can make lots of money."

That never worked for me.

Or...

"My name is Joe Schroeder.
Please don't ask me how much money
I've made in MLM, but, would you
like to get rich with me in some
pyramid scheme?"

(People think MLM is a scam...
I hate that, don't you?)

The Master's Formula

Whether it's diet pills or books and
tapes or water filters or air purifiers
or whatever...

The "Master Formula" is to hide behind a
cash register and "play" buy-low-sell-high.

Hold tight, my (new) friend,
I'm about to change your life.

People do not understand MLM,
much less "levels" and "auto-ship."

MLM big-dogs retail more than they "recruit".

MLM big-dogs understand that people don't
"get" MLM but they DO understand retail...

"Buy low and sell high."

That is why ALL of your (true) real "big stars"
of MLM are huge retailers of a retail item.

Your grandfather called it "trading".

Your parents called that system "bartering".

Today, it's called e-Commerce or "networking".

It's ALL true retailing.

LAW #1:
It's easier to sponsor a CUSTOMER who has
already swapped money with you for
something than it is trying to "recruit"
an absolute STRANGER.

Customers TRUST you.

LAW #2:
When you show your potential downline
member a way to earn cash flow, they
virtually cannot resist.

LAW #3:
Show people "MLM" and they'll go, "Huh?"

Make sense?

Good.

Best of Success!

11 Little Words That Can TRIPLE Your Business

== 11 Little Words That Can TRIPLE Your Business ==

From:
Mike Stokes
Panama City Beach, FL

Learn the LAZY way to earn an extra $50,000
annually becoming a Marketing Genius.

"If you tell people it's MLM you give them the objection."

(That's why your LEADS don't want to hear from you!)

There in front of you are 11 simple little words
that can change your business and TRIPLE it
IF you are open to reality.

Go ahead. TEST MY CONCEPT.

Erase that. Test that FACT.

If you TELL people it's MLM
you give them the objection
.

Go ahead...

BUY (100) leads...

Call them and tell them you do Melaleuca
or Amigo Health, ForMor, whatever.

Great...

ANOTHER $100 to $200 down the drain.

Tell me, how many (give me #'s!) of NEW RECRUITS
has your downline brought in lately calling COLD leads?

Step 1:
BUY a 100 leads so you can play COLD calling hound.

Step 2:
ASK those 100 REAL-TIME leads to look at your MLM.

REMEMBER, your MLM is "the best!" and everyone wants
to join your BEST IN THE WORLD MLM, right?

Step 3:
Now explain to your spouse WHY you can't enroll anyone.

Try this on for size...

Everyone is ALREADY IN a deal.

======================================
WHY CALLING STRANGERS DOESN'T WORK
======================================

Everyone you are trying to convince to QUIT their deal
and hop over to yours is ALREADY losing money in a few
deals so when you tell them IT'S MLM you give them
the REASON to BLOW YOU OFF.

That's why I never SOLD people it was MLM.

That's why I sponsored over 1,000 people.

That's HOW I built downline after downline.

=============================================
THIS FORMULA CREATES $5,000 to $15,000 per month
=============================================

Step 1:
SELL what 100% of the market is BUYING.

Step 2:
Make everyone an ally, not the competition.

Step 3:
Position yourself as an ADVOCATE.

Step 4:
Sell what the MLM world WANTS.

Step 5:
Sell a cash flow LEAD CAPTURE system and make cash.

Step 6:
Sell leads. EVERYONE actually wants leads.

** To give away to their new sign-ups.
** To use for their POST-CARD mail-outs.
** To use for their auto-responder lists.

Step 7:
EARN $1,000 per week and actually PAY YOURSELF.

Step 8:
Back-end and "puppy dog" the MLM
after you capture customers.

Here is a BRAIN-MELT answer and secret shroud.

A MYSTERY solved that you can call your EUREKA moment.

Etch this in the part of your BRAIN located by your GENIUS.

Ready?

Here it is.

You can thank me for this later.

Watch this...

READ this NEXT sentence until your heads HURTS.

Drum roll please --> here is the ANSWER:

Write this down.

Go grab a yellow highlighter pen.

==> It's easy to enroll 3-8 NEW people per month
if you FIRST collected 20 to 25 CUSTOMERS.

Guys, try to IGNORE this GENIUS fact-of-life.

The BILLION DOLLAR companies such as Mary-Kay,
Avon, Tupper-Ware and oh, like Herbalife.

SECRET:

They never taught their little Lambs
to ASK people to join anything.

They never taught their Cherubs to SELL applications.

Nope.

They TAUGHT their distributors to RETAIL
stuff at $5 and $10 and $30.

Here's why:

It's EASY to sponsor 3-5 NEW people PER MONTH
when 10-15-20 people are GIVING you money and
they are CUSTOMERS of yours FIRST.

That is the Avon secret.

That's is my secret I STOLE from Tupper-Ware.

That is the ANCIENT time tested MLM formula.

That is how MARY-KAY became a Billion dollar MLM.

Is your MLM company a Billion dollar company?

Does your MLM teach RETAIL (to) RECRUIT?

It's called a FUNDED-PROPOSAL.

=============================
"Hey Fellow, Can You Spare a Downline?
=============================

The REASON no one says to you "THANK YOU for calling,
what's your ID# I want to join" is BECAUSE if you
tell them it's MLM you give them the REASON NOT
to listen to you.

Tell them you're TRYING to get them
to join ANOTHER program and you
GLORY ME GIVE the suspect the OBJECTION!

Step 1:
RETAIL stuff. Everyone understands retail. (see eBay)

Step 2:
PAY yourself daily and weekly. What a concept!

Step 3:
FORGET your MLM suicide march.

Step 4:
FOCUS on gathering paying CUSTOMERS.

Step 5:
SELL hot marketing info and leads. Get paid.

Now HIDE your MLM program within the sales funnel
of your CUSTOM SALES GATHERING cycle and let
2-3-4-5 come back to you and cry

"IT LOOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUCCESSFUL MLM SYSTEM. "

Secret of the ages # 301

MLM people DON'T BUY MLM.

They buy:

** SYSTEMS
** Leads
** MORE systems
** More Leads

Go ask RANDY GAGE if this IS THE FORMULA for MLM riches.

Go ASK RUSSELL Paley WHY he RETAILS books and seminars?

Go ask Robert Blackman or Karl Jacobsen if this IS THE ANSWER.

Go ask MIKE STOKES what he does to be able to sit
up in an ocean-front hotel room half the time!

The GURU earns $15,000 per MONTH BEFORE he ever MLMs.

** That is the HIDDEN ORDER of the MLM GURU.

She makes RETAIL money and $10,000 per month
BEFORE she ever even mentions her program.

GET paid NOW so you can MLM in 2 years from now.

GET paid NOW so you can BE HERE in 2 years from now.

The GURU earns $4,000 per WEEK charging you for his MLM site

The GURU earns $10,000 per MONTH selling LEADS to his team

The GURU is a RETAIL cash FIRST capitalist.

He doesn't pray to his MLM.

He never made his SPONSOR his MOMMY.

The SMART Gals and Guys follow business 101 basics.

===========================================
THEY PAY THEMSELVES FIRST and MLM LATER ===========================================

Pop Quiz: MLM icon and MLM LEGEND Big Al.

Big Al (Tom Schreiter) leads with what?

RETAIL.

Geez.

I wonder why.

Seminars (his) and (his) books and tapes.

I wonder why.

Go ahead. Argue with me.

Meanwhile of the 100 people you call who
are all STRANGERS don't give a rip about
your hot-new MLM.

But remember, YOUR MLM program is THE BEST.

Right?

That's WHY everyone wants to JOIN with you.

Right?

Wrong.

Wise up.

Go ahead...

BUY MORE REAL time leads @ $3 and CHANGE each.

Great business model. Not.

Lies.

Lies.

Lies.

The people EARNING the RIDICULOUS money
are selling everything BUT their MLM
.

** Site fees.
** Audio CD sets.
** Leads.
** Retreats and seminars.
** Splash pages and lead capture utilities.

+++ SNEAK - ATTACK +++

And AFTER they acquire PAID CUSTOMERS they then sneak
in whatever subscription MLM they are doing.

Step 1:
If you tell people it's MLM you give them the objection.

Step 2
It's EASIER to sponsor 3-5-8 new people PER MONTH
if you FIRST collected 20-25 paid BUYERS who bought
something RETAIL from you.

How do you JOIN a gym?
Retail.

They FIRST sell you a personal trainer for a week.

Or, they let you SAMPLE the gym for a week at retail.

How do you JOIN Verizon on-line?

Easy...

FIRST they RETAIL you a PHONE.

How do you SUBSCRIBE to any newspaper?

FIRST they retail the darn thing to you at the Piggly-Wiggly store.

How do you SUBSCRIBE and JOIN Costco / BJ / SAMS CLUB?

Good gosh this is obvious AFTER you see the HIDDEN ORDER.

First they RETAIL food and ribs and clothes to you.

The REAL WORLD BUSINESS MODEL is -

Retail = cash flow = subscription.

The MLM crowd does it backwards.

No wonder they don't make any money.

They ACTUALLY walk around and ask strangers

"Wanna sign up at $150 per month, hi, my name is Paul."

Dumb.

Dumb.

Dumb.

IF it worked...

If THAT MLM Suicide march actually worked you'd be F/T already.

Guys, I am the messenger.

NOT the message.

DON'T shoot me.

I have brought you TRUTH.

I love you all.

ENOUGH to call it as it is.

TOMORROW I will expose the HALF-TRUTHS being told.

And it ain't pretty.

SAVE yourself YEARS of TRIAL / ERROR / STRUGGLE

You Don’t Have To Be a Genius to Make Money

You Don’t Have To Be a Genius to Make Money,
But It Sure Helps to Know One!


or, Maybe I Was “Lucky”

By:
Mike Stokes
Disneyworld, FL
Saturday 5:45 AM

Almost every day someone will tell me that
they want to make $10,000.00 a month,
and even more for goodness sakes...

But that they won’t do what it
takes to make $100.00 a month.

They won’t take the action required to cover
their product costs, let alone do what
it takes to cover some marketing expenses.

They want to be a “heavy hitter” marketing guru,
and make the big bucks, yet they don’t want to
INVEST in the education – books, tapes, seminars,
etc – to learn how to do what they want to do...

...to have SUCCESS.

They'd rather watch Lost on the TV and
learn how to make money by osmosis.

Yet these same people don’t bat an eye at
spending $100,000.00 and 4 years of their
lives to go to college to learn how to be
a $30,000 a year bookkeeper.

They want to quit their jobs and “go full time”,
yet they won’t INVEST one measly hour a day
in their business.

What in the world do they plan to do with
the extra 40 – 50 hours they have on their
hands if they quit their jobs?

They want to be in the marketing business,
but don’t want anyone to know about it.

Some even hide their business
from their spouses.

Good Lord.

If people in the “real” world thought
the way many people in direct sales think,
they’d certainly lose their jobs and businesses,
and maybe even be put in a mental institution.

Maybe I thought like that before I got
into the direct sales business, because
I certainly lost my home, my business
and everything I owned once.

Maybe I was “lucky”, because I went down
the “stupid” highway before I was exposed
to direct sales.

And maybe I was “lucky”, because it wasn’t
“just a couple of hundred bucks” that I
INVESTED to start my direct sales business,
it was every cent I had and could put my
hands on in the world.

In fact, it was our grocery money.

No kidding.

You ever make spaghetti sauce with
the ketchup packs you saved up from
fast food joints?

We did, more than once too.

Maybe I was “lucky” because I had
to take my new business seriously,
or my family wouldn’t eat.

Maybe you could relate this to putting up
your home, all your savings, all of your
retirement benefits, all of your possessions,
and quitting your job to start a business
of some sort.

Do you think you would take that serious?

As serious as a heart attack, I’d think.

I talk with people every day that
don’t want to sell any products.

I’m not sure that they understand the English language.

What could they possibly think that
“marketing” and “direct sales” involves?

I tell these folks to toss their products
out the back door if they don’t want to
sell anything.

That’ll work.

Sort of like opening a convenience store,
and not wanting to sell the cigarettes and
beer, yet expecting money to materialize
in the cash register.

Seems foolish to me, but whatever rings
their bell, so what the heck.

I don’t understand where they’re coming from.

Maybe they know something I don’t.

But then, I’m the one getting
checks in the mail every day.

Maybe I was “lucky” that I had to sell
my initial order of products, in order
to pay for my next order.

You see, I “stole” $57.00 out of our
so-called budget to start my new
direct sales and marketing business.

Fifty-seven dollars.

On September 2, 1998.

But, the difference is, I didn’t INVEST
“just $57.00” in my new business,
I invested it ALL.

I had just “moved up” from homeless to
a tiny apartment in what can only be
described as a ghetto neighborhood.

Drunks and bums for neighbors…

The occasional shooting.

Anyway, fast-forward…

Less than 9 months later, on May 31, 1999,
I bought my wife the first new car she
had ever owned in her life.

A brand new, never been driven,
shiny black Toyota Camry.

She was so proud of it.

I was too.

Then, 23 months after opening my $57.00
direct sales and marketing business,
I bought my wife a real home,
in a nice neighborhood.

Still selling the products that I couldn’t
afford to keep 23 months earlier.

I guess I was “lucky.”

Maybe I got all the “breaks.”

Didn’t seem like it at the time.

But, looking back, I think I did get all the “breaks.”

My first “break” came just moments after
I bought in to my marketing business.

My sponsor vanished.

To this day, I have never heard another
word from him, or even about him.

He simply vanished.

Maybe he was abducted, I don’t know.

Maybe I’m a “genius.”

I didn’t even know the phone number
to the company I had just joined.

I had to wait until my first $57.00 order
arrived to find out how to contact the company.

Well, at least I was smart enough to know
that I needed to hook up with someone that
knew what they were doing...

Because I was “blessed” to not know a
thing about this marketing business.

Well, I have to admit that I was
“lucky” about one thing at least.

In the company newsletter that came with
my initial $57.00 order, they listed all
of the big money earners in the company.

They don’t list the people that don’t make any money.

Imagine that...

(I have since come to learn that most companies are like that.)

My “luck” is kicking in now, because if I’m
gonna call anyone for advice, it has to be
one of those big money earners on that list.

I just plain didn’t know how to contact anyone
as dumb and broke as myself, which is who I
certainly would have contacted given the chance.

Well, I’m about to learn my first lesson
in prosperity consciousness.

That lesson is this:

When you need business advice and counseling,
get it from someone who is already where
you want to be.

Not at the barroom or from your
dumb, broke brother-in-law.

Write this down:

If you want to make money,
you’ve got to get close to the money.

If you want to catch the flu,
hang around with people that have the flu.

If you want to make money,
hang around with people that are making money.

It’s not much more complicated than that.

Oh, and you do need to heed their advice.

And, take action.

So, what’s the “secret” of success?

1. ASSOCIATE with successful people.
2. INVEST in your success education.
3. DO what successful people do.
4. Take ACTION. In other words, do it.

You can’t PLAY business,.

You’re either IN business, or you’re wasting
people’s time and your family’s money.

If you’re gonna be in business, here’s what you need to do:

1. Find an honest and legitimate business,
not a money game.

2. Find someone that is already successful,
or is connected to someone that is already
successful, in that business.

3. INVEST in the products and the tools that
are necessary to be in that business.

4. Get a day planner and mark out and set aside
your business hours, those times that you are
working your business, just as if you had to
go to the job.

5. Do the work that your successful mentor
does to build his/her business.

6. Stick with it.
I don’t think Bill Gates became
a gazillionaire in a week either.

7. Read. Read. Read.
Establish a weekly/monthly budget for books,
tapes and seminars.
I invested $50.00 a week when I was
only earning $200.00 a week at my J-O-B.
It pays off big time!

8. Mastermind.
Stay connected to successful people.

9. Be consistent.

10. Just do it.

There are plenty of false prophets and false
gurus out there that just “talk the talk.”

You need to run with those that “walk the walk.”

Mentors that are really “doing the deal” can tell
in 3 minutes of talking with you if you’re making
any money or not.

So I recommend that you don’t try
to run any BS past a real mentor.

I can remember one time a “big shot” trying
to tell me how to market products to
convenience stores.

I was still a “little shot” at the time.

However, I did know a thing or two about
marketing to convenience stores.

She didn’t know I already had products
in over 200 c-stores and I could tell
100% that she had never even TRIED
to sell one or she wouldn’t be saying
what she was saying.

I had walked that walk...

She was talking the walk.

Interesting.

Anyway, I can remember driving
400 miles to meet my mentor.

Paying $1,200.00 to participate in a conference.

Borrowing $1000.00 for the trip.

Best investment I’ve ever made.

I’ve invested a small fortune looking
for my “assignment” in life.

I’ve moved on past friends that weren’t
going where I must go in life.

What we’re talking about here works,
pure and simple.

No getting around it.

When you SEEK correction in your thought process,
UNCOMMON mentors are “invited” into your life.

When you seek CORRECTION, you SCHEDULE
uncommon HELPERS into your life.

You MUST seek out MENTORSHIP with uncommon thinkers.

You can't find ONE BILLIONAIRE who did it alone.

Get some biographies at Barnes and Noble.

They ALL had a brain trust.

They were all TAUGHT.

Steve Wozniak MASTERMINDED with (iPod) Steve Jobs.

17 partners MASTERMINDED with (Domino’s) Tom Monaghan.

Siegfred MASTERMINDED with Roy.

Carson MASTERMINDED with Ed.

Oprah won’t budge without Gale.

Life leaves clues.

“Life was never meant to be a struggle.”

Get in the flow.

Masterminding opens up channels
of WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING
that you just can not access
on your own.

Best of Success!

The POWER BID - Part II

The Power Bid: Part II

Published By:
Mike Stokes
Grande Isle, LA

Tuesday 6:00 PM

Here's how a real Power Bid works:

I say this...

"Look, you get THREE front-line with
a monthly autoship of XXX, and I
will enter your life."

With 3 FRONT-LINE, you will prove
yourself as a highly capable and
valuable profit center for me...

And I will start to give you leads,
free products, all sorts of things.

But wait...

If you get SIX front-line,
I will "freak out"...

You will elevate to the top 1%
of my business and I will
virtually "assume" your business.

We will talk every day...

I will FLOOD you with leads...

Yes, I will even GIVE YOU PEOPLE.

You will get "loved to death" by me.

Now, what is really happening here?

The FACT is, myself and many others
who have a large fish-bowl of leads
can NOT enroll everyone front-line.

HOW could I manage all those guys?

Plus, if I DO NOT take the time
to help all my front-liners...

a) I hurt them.

b) I weaken my investment.

c) They quit.

So, what I look for is people with
People Skills and people with
Influence to manage my downline.

And, I find these types of leaders
by using the POWER BID.

I also tell everyone, that chances of
you having 3-6 front-line are slim.

Most can't enroll 3-6 front-line.

Most are burn-outs.

Most are weak and have little influence.

Most will enroll TWO within
the next 18 months...

But...But...

If you can prove...

That you have what it takes...

Look, if you can enroll 3-6 people,
and trust me...

I DO NOT care if it's your dog and cat...

99% will not.

99% can not.

99% couldn't even if you helped them.

But, if YOU can and you do...

I will change your life.

Period.

End of sentence.

How VALUABLE do you think anyone is
to me who can do what 99% cannot do?

Am I gonna "love bomb" these guys and
make darn sure they stay with me?

Am I gonna make darn sure they make money?

You bet'cha I am.

That's called a POWER BID.

No, MOST uplines not only don't use
this leveraged business technique...

Most have never even THOUGHT this way.

Oh well...

Imagine, building a downline based on
the LEVERAGE of a big-name marketer.

Having a tough time getting your pals
from work excited about MLM?

Imagine...

Think about the power of a POWER BID.

Not only was I TAUGHT the Power Bid,
I have performed it...

And let me tell ya...

You get the right kind of
upline to "bid" with...

And Katy-bar-the door!

See, YOU might be destined for
Millionaire-ship in MLM.

But, you just can't get off of
first base all by yourself.

You might just need a "leg up".

Somebody helped Muhammad Ali.

Somebody helped JFK.

Somebody helped Ronald Reagan.

Somebody helped...

Everybody needs help.

Everyone deserves a "shot".

Most people don't know about
the POWER BID.

Now you do.

This is PhD MLM.

Deals are made.

Downlines are moved.

Gurus are paid thousands of dollars
for "insider" deals.

And guess what?

That's life.

It's called business.

Hope this insight rocked your world.

Best of Success!

The MLM Autopsy Report

MLM As You Know It Is Dead:
Here's the Autopsy Report

From:
Mike Stokes
Baton Rouge, LA

Tuesday 4:30 PM

Are you ready to learn WHY you haven't
been able to make any MONEY in MLM and
WHAT you can do to start getting checks
in the mail every week?

This is an open letter to the 95% of
Network Marketers who have never made
$1,000.00 or more a month with their
home based businesses...

You spend your hard-earned money each
and every month on products you don't
need and can't sell...

--> You've TRIED calling your friends
and family...
--> You've TRIED putting up flyers...
--> You've TRIED placing ads in your
local Penny Saver paper...
--> You've TRIED handing out free samples...
--> You've TRIED mailing out post cards...
--> You've TRIED buying bogus "leads"
and Tele-Marketing strangers...
--> You've TRIED buying bogus "leads"
and sending SPAM emails to strangers...
--> You've TRIED the "opportunity seeker"
co-ops...
--> You've TRIED it ALL...

My sponsor in one program wanted me
to make a list of everyone I knew...

Even people I worked with!

He was gonna call them all,
with me on the phone.

Can you imagine?

I said, "Let's call YOUR friends."

He didn't like that idea.

Are you TIRED of having to be a
marketing genius to get any results?


You've bought all the books and CDs...

You've read all the information
you could find...

Written by every Internet and
marketing "expert" out there...

Some had some useful information...

But, none of it had that magic key
the opened the door to actually
making any money.

And cold-calling strangers at night...

That's called TELE-MARKETING.

No matter what they call it in MLM.

Is that what YOU started
a home business to do?

I don't know about YOU,

but MY idea of a home business
is NOT about calling strangers
to tele-market a money-game
pyramid scheme...

where the business is only to
recruit other tele-marketers
in...

so they can recruit other
tele-marketers into a MASSIVE
Tele-Marketing Pyramid Scheme!

Being in an MLM money-game pyramid
is like buying a McDonalds franchise
and they tell you:

"Don't worry about selling hamburgers,
just go sell some more franchises."

That's not a REAL business...

It's a RECRUITING business...

And, the last guy or gal
in gets the SHAFT.

A real BUSINESS,

Has a real PRODUCT,

That has real VALUE,

And real PEOPLE buy them,

Because they WANT them.

In a lot of MLM companies,
NO ONE is buying the products
except the distributors...

And, they only buy them so that
they can be in a position to
earn a commission.

Given the fact that MOST people
just don't know how to sponsor
enough people to be successful...

You have a blueprint for FAILURE.

If you're FINALLY ready to stop
playing the MLM shell game...

If you're FINALLY ready to start
making M0NEY for your family...

With a real BUSINESS that you can
manage from your HOME...

And be PROUD of...

Your FIRST STEP is to read this

How Do You Write Ads...

How Do You Write Ads That
Pull a Ton of Leads?


From:
Mike Stokes
False River, LA
Friday 5:00 PM

How do those fancy ads work anyway?

1. Advertise to a NICHE market.
2. Match the MESSAGE to the market.

As a networker, I can assure you,
the market does NOT want to hear
about YOUR opportunity.

Aren't they ALREADY in a program?

What changed my life back in 1999 was this:

Offering generic information to a crowd
that was failing miserably.

Only a FEW make money in MLM.

So, they will readily BUY RELIEF.

How-To information, leads, etc...

The game, is to sell 50 - 75
NEW people per month.

The game is to make $2,000 - $5,000 per month.

Selling INFORMATION.

Like...

Big Al, Joe Schroeder, Mike Stokes...

Randy Gage, Tony Robbins...

A ton of "big names"...

Sell information and back-door MLM.

The KEY, is to:

Earn BIG MONEY NOW.

Not later...

Not in 2 years...

NOW.

PAY your dang bills...

FEED your family...

Make MONEY...

Then, you have 50 - 100 NEW people
each month to show your MLM to.

They are your information BUYING customers...

You make money...

And, 5 - 10% or more
turn out to LIKE YOU...

Because you treated them
nice and helped them.

And they ENROLL with you.

Is that a promise?

No, I don't know what MLM you work
and I don't know if you're nice
and are serving your customers.

However, that IS what I do,
and it DOES work for me.

--> You can't get your buddies to work your MLM...

--> You're upline doesn't FEED you people...

--> Those you do have are NOT duplicating.

Ouch.

So, what can you do?

The ANSWER is right under your nose.

I already told you the answer.

It's the new Speed Enrollers system:

Magnetic Sponsoring

MLM Traffic Formula

Building on a Budget

your business on the Fast Track.

Your 60-Second Marketing Tip

From:
Mike Stokes
False River, LA

Do you know the #1 secret of the
heavy hitters in any kind of
marketing business?

It’s this:

The most valuable asset you’ll
ever build in any business is
your contact list.

With a good contact list, even if
your company closes down, or you
lose your product line for any reason,
you can start dialing and be back
on top within a year.

This is what we're all about.

Just think of all the people that you’ve
come in contact with over the years you’ve
been in the marketing business.

You can improve the value of your list
by maintaining a relationship via phone,
mail and email.

This is our tip of the week.

Best of Success!

Multiple Streams of Income

This report is actually an excerpt
from the best selling book,
"Multiple Streams of Income"
by Robert Allen.

The title of Chapter 11 is:

Network Marketing:
The Ultimate Money Machine

This is some GREAT information on
HOW TO build YOUR business.

Note: I begin quoting from the book here.

Principle 2:
Use the Right Marketing System

By marketing system, I mean HOW
you will attract your customers.

Here is the system that most people
use to get started in traditional
network marketing:

-> Make a list of at least 100 names,
including everyone you know.

-> Call each of them and try to sell
them your product or your opportunity.

What a formula!

It's simple...
It's cheap...
It's duplicable...

But 90% of the people who
follow this system FAIL!


Why?

Because, the odds of finding a truly
qualified customer in ANY average
group of 100 people is VERY low.

Maybe only 1 or 2 percent are
actually seeking your product
or opportunity at this moment...

5 percent if you're lucky.

Zig Ziglar himself couldn't find
more than five good customers in
this group.

Ninety-five people would turn him down.

That's a 95 percent rejection rate.

And he's the BEST SALESPERSON
in the WORLD!

What's going to happen when our
untrained beginner calls this
same list?

Massive rejection followed by failure.

It's not because the product is bad
or the opportunity is not good
or even because the beginner
doesn't know how to sell.

It's BECAUSE the odds of finding
two good customers in ANY LIST
of 100 average people is very low.

But the beginner doesn't KNOW this...

But here's the GOOD NEWS.

Although a beginner feels defeated
with only a 5 percent success rate,
ANY mail-order marketer will tell
you that a 5 percent response rate
is FANTASTIC!

It's the stuff FORTUNE'S are made of.

Mail-order marketers are ECSTATIC with
a 1 or 2 percent response rate!

Here is the FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE
behind ANY successful network
marketing business:

************************************
If you can find just ONE or TWO
customers in every 100 contacts,
you can build a FORTUNE.
************************************

To be successful in network marketing
you need a SYSTEM that...

-> Dramatically lowers the probability
of rejection.

-> Sifts through the 100 people to
AUTOMATICALLY find the five who
are most interested.

-> Get those five prospects to CALL
YOU on the phone and tell you
they're interested.

-> Automatically TRAINS the two
HOTTEST prospects to SELL
THEMSELVES and give you the money.

No rejection:

Only the HOT prospect RESPONDS.

The 9 cold ones don't respond.

Good.

We don't want to talk to them anyway.

Who wants unnecessary rejection?

In other words, we DON'T do SALES.
We do MARKETING.

(End of quoting from the book.)

Does this sound FAMILIAR?

-> This is EXACTLY how our
BUSINESS SYSTEM works.

-> This is EXACTLY what we do.

-> This is how THOUSANDS of people
just like YOU and me make a
REAL LIVING...

This is how I was able to leave my
full-time job in just 5 months.

I can SHOW YOU HOW to do this.

I do it every day.

This is WHAT I do.

I TEACH people JUST LIKE YOU
how to do this.

It ain't rocket science...

IF... IF...

IF, you have the RIGHT BUSINESS SYSTEM.

Get this...

You are ALREADY IN this system...

You are just on the WRONG SIDE
of the CASH REGISTER...

Come on over to MY side of the cash register.

You have NOTHING to lose,
and EVERYTHING to gain.

Got questions?

Call me...

Email me...

I'm here to show you HOW.

The Part-Time Millionaire

The Part-Time Millionaire
Business System


From:
Mike Stokes
Destin, FL
Sunday 4:40 PM

This can be a picture
of YOUR business
.

Here's what I do:

I have a few ads running online.

I get several (or a lot of)
GREAT leads every day.

You don't need many
when they're GOOD.

Quite often, they call me first.

I love that.

Makes for a very pleasant conversation.

Or, I may call 2 or 3 of the leads.

Takes maybe 30 minutes total.

Sometimes we really hit it
off and talk for hours.

Anyway, I don't worry about
the outcome of the call.

All I want to do is introduce myself,
and meet someone new, a fellow marketer.

Ask one or two simple questions.

Point them to some really good
FREE information in my system.

Let them sell themselves.

I do this when I'm at home,
and when I'm in a hotel on
the beach, like I am now.

A portable business only
requires a laptop computer
and a cell phone (or two).

Sound simple?

It is.

Stop spinning your wheels.

The Quick-Link System (At-a-Glance)

Mis-Marketing is using an affiliate site that
isn't attached to your OWN auto-responder.


No one else offers this because they are
trying to CAPTURE YOUR LEADS and
build a list through YOU.


Mis-Marketing is retailing an affiliate
product and allowing the site owner to
collect the funds.


With Quick-Link, you CONTROL the LIST
and the MONEY.


This creates INSTANT cash flow.

Why wait to be paid?

Mis-marketing is selling something that
doesn't have a "back-end" second sale
built in to it.


Without continuity of $14.95 then $197
and then $497 you have to start all
over with new people.


Mis-Marketing is opening your mouth.

If you do, you can only speak
to a few people per day.


If you're not funneling 100's of people
into your sales process daily...


Imagine if you could!

Mis-Marketing is spending money
promoting something that can
NOT bring back a $100 sale.


Pay yourself today so you
can be here next year.


Amateurs sell $20 and $40 programs.

Pros don't.

Mis-Marketing is trying to sell $500
and $1000 programs without a little
$10 and $15 trial offer.


Have you ever waited months and months
to sell one $500 or $1000 program?


Ooops. That must be hard!

Mis-Marketing is ignoring the 95%
who reject your main program and
NOT earning off them.


Now, with this system, you can earn
money from your prospects even if
they reject your primary program.


Mis-Marketing is trying to earn
residual income without leading
with a retail cash flow item.


It's easier to sponsor 3-5-8 NEW
people per month if you have
15-25 retail customers!

the Quick-Link System,

using this system is that I have NOT
had to have a job since Feb 1, 1999.

How I Turned A $200 USA TODAY Classified...

This is a prime example of HOW the
Speed Enrollers Quick Link System
actually works.

Print this one.

Use a highlighter.

And then use the steps to make a
couple THOU in the next 10 days.

YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!

“How I Turned A $200 USA TODAY Classified
Ad Into Over $800 dollars of RAW CASH”


(Not to mention 16 NEW enrollee’s)

My intent here is to PROVE to you just
how easily you can find NEW recruits
for your MLM—–

And how to make CASH FLOW
all at the same time.

Let’s move ahead and EXPLORE THIS!

A TON of people (still) think the only
way they can build a hefty downline
is using the old fashioned way.

God bless them. I DID NOT.

I used very NEW and un-orthodox
measures. As I will show you now!

Step #1: I secured LIVE operators to
take my orders. I was STILL going
door-to-door with my food truck.
This was back in 1995.

Step #2: I had “cut” TWO audio tapes.

Step #3: I had to come up with
$200 dollars to place my USA Today
classified ad.

Step #4: I had to secure a 1-800 line
that I could make a 3-minute out-going
message.

Step #5: I had to secure a 30 MINUTE
out-going message via voice mail.
That COST me about $170 to set up.

Mind, you, this was a LOAD of leg work.

Tapes...
TWO different voice-mail set-ups...
LIVE operators...
Merchant accounts.

This is a FACT.

If you want to make a TON of money, YOU
have to start assuming MORE responsibility.

Those that make BIG DOUGH have DECIDED
to HARNESS a LOT of responsibility.

THINK ABOUT THAT—–IT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU.

Let’s scoot ahead…..

Now...HOW ON EARTH did I USE all of
this technology and “STUFF” to turn
a $200 ad into a HUGE business?

FOOT-NOTE: What you are NOW reading
was my FIRST real USE of AUTO-MATED
ENROLLING…..

And, my first real venture into making
at least $100 a day selling home-made
how-to books and tapes!

Keep reading.

You’ll SEE what I mean in a second…

Okay, so the SYSTEM was in place.
And……I was BROKE!

So, I took money off some highway
money clipper (store) of about $4,000.

I KNEW I was CLOSE to my jack-pot
and I needed seed money.

Plus, (1995) I was also selling MOPS
at flea markets on weekends.

You got it!

I was DESPERATE.

The FOOD TRUCK was making me “beans”
and I simply would NOT BE DENIED.

I literally did ANYTHING and EVERYTHING
to make what I SAW IN MY MIND all come true.

LOADS of HARD work. TEARS even.
DISTRACTIONS everywhere.

Almost NO ONE believed in me.
My WIFE was FURIOUS at me.

“You fool…what are you doing? YOU are
jeopardizing our children's future with
your cockamamie marketing stuff.”

Yes, my “dear” wife did NOT believe in me.

(I sure showed her though!—-Bless her heart!)

The CLASSIFIED SAID THIS -

Dead Downlines Don’t Lie!
Names mentioned and scams revealed.
FREE audio tape.
1-800-555-buckwheat.

How could I AFFORD a 1-800 line?

I COULD NOT!

So, here is how I got people to call
my 1-800 line and then how I got them
to SWITCH over to a toll 201-line!

??? How Did I Do That ???

Gimmick #1:

THAT 1-800 line was only a 3 MINUTE message.

Telling the caller what was ABOUT to HAPPEN.

What that 3 MINUTE line did was say,
“I will change your life. FOR FREE.
GIVE ME 30 minutes of your life.

** Go to my 201-tel-a-seminar...
** Here is the other number.
** I will TRAIN you for 30 MINUTES.
** NO charge.
** Your FREE tape is THERE.

“HANG up NOW and go to my 201–NJ phone
that is a 30 minute training call.”

** They called the 1-800 line.
** They heard my “deal” and that lasted 3 minutes.
** Then they hung up and called.
** MY 30 minute training line…
** YES, they ACTUALLY DID THAT!!!

Gimmick #2:

THEY paid for the call via their
REGULAR long distance charge.

I would have been NUTS to sit there for
over 50,000 minutes and train all these
folks on some 1-800 line!

Gimmick #3:

MOST everyone clicked over to the 201-NJ
line. I had SUCCESSFULY baited them.

They wanted the FREE tape.
They WANTED the 30-minute TRAINING.

I hosted their desires.

Gimmick #4:

When they went to my second line, the
201–NJ 30-minute recording of me training
them, in the FIRST five minutes I told them
about my $15 TRAINING kit.

The GIMMICK was that I KNEW they wanted
the FREE tape and the TRAINING.

For FREE.

I also knew that I could sell them my
$15 course and they would NOT hang up.

The GIMMICK is that I made them
JUMP from hoop-to-hoop.

I made them COMMIT to me.

Now, I had them.

So, for the first five minutes I told them…

On the 201-NJ line……

(1) Enjoy this half hour call.
(2) If you like it…buy my $15 course.
(3) Live operators at so and so line.
(4) Visa and Mastercard...
(5) FREE tape (tape #3) ADDED to package.
(6) EXTRA FREE 22 page report.
(7) All of this only $15.
(8) Hear me NOW for 30 minutes.
(9) If I stink….HANG UP.
(10) If you like my training: BUY the $15 course.

TRY doing the above system and sell junk and
you’ll lose a fortune in time and money.

The fundamental reason this worked and WHY
the people HUNG with me, through all of these
hoops, was because they could SMELL VALUE.

Sell junk and you never win.

SELL PURE VALUE and over-deliver—-
and you can make a bloody fortune.

Okay, back to the system and WHAT was the RESULT?

** I sold well over $800 dollars of tapes.
** People LOVED the 30 minute call.
** I ERASED my $200 ad cost @ USA TODAY
** I had NEW FUTURE RECRUITS to enroll.
** I was CASH FLOW HAPPY.
** All of this happened BEHIND MY BACK.
** I had a TRUE “machine” making me money!

And the rest, as they say, “is history.”

Okay, last lesson:

What I learned is what I HOPE you have learned.

THINK about this:

1) ALL MLM networking does NOT have to be traditional.
YOU can go “outside” the box and use really cool
marketing like I do.

2) It’s easier to build an M L M downline
and make boo-koo bucks if you can make
10-20 sales a day…. And then BACK-END
those BUYERS into your downline.

It really helps when you have an extra
$100 to $500 a week streaming in.

For me it did.

3) YES! You can do traditional M L M. I do.
I also use MACHINES to:

** Do presentations for me.
** Machines sell and SPEAK for me.
** I can do 1,000 M L M demo’s a day.

Whoops. Cancel that. I CAN NOT.

My machines do!

And on and on...

TAKE ADVANTAGE of THE MACHINES!

Well, I hope this letter has inspired you.

I also hope it has shown you the POWER
of marketing and I pray this has RAISED
your level of awareness as to HOW TO
OUT-MARKET and by TWISTING your
THINKING around………

Just a teensy-weensy bit.

You can make all of your dreams come true.

** Use better marketing.
** TOUCH and GET to more people.
** USE this to make you CASH FLOW and
build yourself a downline that will
feed your family for generations to come!

I did. Twice!

And you can too!

Best of Success,

The Power Bid

The Power Bid

Publisher: Mike Stokes
(225) 218-1469 CST

"I've been busting my tail in MLM for years.

I've retailed.

Done the ad co-ops.

I've done the family and friends junket.

And now my MLM check is $17.09 over what
it costs me each month to participate!"

And if that does NOT sound like you...

It sure sounds like me five-six years ago.

And guess what--if you have a downline?

MOST of your people are saying
that same thing to themselves.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

Imagine this.

Imagine that you were under some
real "tiger" networker.

I mean this dude was recruiting 1-2-3 PER DAY.

I have one of those.

Yes, they DO EXIST!

But what if...What if you could use
the POWER and PRESTIGE of your upline?

What if, what if your upline...

What if you were in ka-hoots
with your powerful upline?

They would give you "cherry" leads.
They would give you preferential treatment.
You would leverage THEIR reputation.

WOW

See, as a "newbie" or as someone with little
success to wear on your sleeve, often times...

As Networkers, we just don't have the
"umph" we need to get-over-the-hump.

Then once you do, success begets success.

People seek you out.

You "snap" and people join you.

People actually ASK YOU,
"can I enroll under you?"

Yes, that too...actually happens.

But how?

How could anyone harness the
power of their upline?

Kinda like an "angel."

The answer is called a POWER-BID.

Most networkers don't have
a clue what this is.

So I will let you in "backstage"
to big-time MLM.

A Power-Bid is this...

You make a pact with your upline to do
"X" amount of work for a return agreement
that your upline will "build you."

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE

This is what I tell my NEW-INS...

I say this...

"Look, you get THREE (3) front line
with a monthly auto-ship of 2 cases
and I will enter your life.

With 3 FRONT LINE, you will prove yourself
as a highly valuable profit center for me
and I will start to give you leads, send
you FREE products, all sorts of things.

But wait...

If you get SIX (6) front line,
I will "freak out"...

You will elevate to the top 1% of
my business and I will virtually
"assume" your business.

We will talk everyday.
I will FLOOD you with leads.
Yes, I will even GIVE YOU PEOPLE.
You will get "loved to death" by me.

Now, what is really happening here?

The fact is, myself and many others
who have a large fish-bowl of leads,
can ***NOT*** enroll everyone front
line.

How could I manage all of those guys?

Plus, if I DO NOT take the time
to help my front-liners...

a) I hurt them

b) I weaken my investment

c) They quit

So what I look for is people with
***People Skills*** and people
with influence to manage my downline...

And I find these "types" of leaders
by using the POWER-BID..

I also tell everyone, the chances of
you having 3-6 front-line are slim.

Most can't enroll 3-6 front line.
Most are burn outs.
Most are weak and have little influence.

Most will enroll
TWO( 2) within the next 18 months...
But...But...

If you can prove...

That you have what it takes...

Look, if you can enroll 3-6 people...
and trust me...
I ***DO NOT*** care if it's your dog and cat...

99% will not...

99% can not...

99% couldn't even if you helped them.

But...If you can and you do...

I will change your life.

Period. End of sentence.

Now put yourself in my shoes.

How VALUABLE do you think anyone is
to me who can do what 99% can not?

Am I gonna "love bomb" these guys and
make darn sure that they stay with me?

Am I gonna make darn sure they make money?

You bet'cha I am.

That's called a POWER BID.

No, MOST uplines not only don't use
this leverage "business" technique.

Most people have never even thought this way.

Well guess what?

Two MASTERS used the power bid on me.

Yup.

Back in 1994 and then in 1995.

"Joe, you go get 8-10 front line and I'll make you."

And guess what?

I understood the gosh-darn power of
using them and their leverage...

Imagine, building a downline BASED ON
THE LEVERAGE of a big-name networker?

Having a tough time getting your pals
from work excited about MLM?

Imagine...

Think about the power of a POWER BID.

Not only was I TAUGHT the Power Bid...

I have performed it...

I have used it on my people...

And I have been on both ends of the "bidding."

And let me tell ya...

Get the right kind of upline to "bid" with...

And "huh Buddy!"

See, YOU might be destined
for Millionaire-ship in MLM.

I was.

I was bred to do this.

I was.

I was actually made to be what I have become.

A writer, a teacher and a leader and visionary.

But...I ***COULD NOT*** get off
of first base all by myself.

I needed a "leg up."

Somebody helped Muhammad Ali.

Somebody helped JFK.

Somebody helped Ronald Reagan.

Somebody helped...

Everybody needs help.

Everyone deserves a "shot."

Most people don't know
about the "Power Bid."

Now you do.

This is PhD. MLM.

This is "big -time" back-stage MLM.

Deals are made.

Downlines are moved.

Guru's are paid th0usands of do11ars
for insider agreements.

And guess what?

That's life.

It's called....

Bid-ness.

Hope this insight rocked your world.

How Does A Funded Proposal Work?

How Does A Funded Proposal Work?

Publisher: Mike Stokes
(225) 218-1469 CST

Many of you are still fairly new to the
"funded proposal" and how it works and
what makes it so powerful for part-time
networkers, even the professionals.

Well, here we go...

1. Generally, you rarely mail or advertise
anything that is not built to feed you with
IMMEDIATE CASH in return.

2. What you advertise is information and
"how-to" and you send out a letter or post
card, anything, that is selling information.

Myself and MLM pros do this by using MLM
information to sell - books and CDs.

3. You are still retailing items locally that
your company is selling.

You're still doing or participating in local
company MLM rah-rah meetings.

You DO NOT replace your traditional
MLM activities with this.

You use the classic funded proposal
as an addition to your campaign and
as the only intelligent way to enter
and remain active in the cold market.

4. It's best to make your initial efforts
in the cold market with a price people
can't refuse.

It's low-priced and value-packed.

A good price is a hard offer to say "no" to.

5. Inside your low ticket item ($10 - $29.95)
is your "mother load" for $200 - $500 dollars.

DO NOT try to make money on the initial
"front-end."

95% of your profits will and should come
from high-ticket back-end items...

In the second "upgrade" sale.

How To Erase Your Downline's Anxiety

If you look closely, most networkers have anxiety.

They rarely have enough leads, they rarely
get any real professional support, and
without enrolling people virtually all
the time, they tend to get depressed and
they start to second guess your MLM program.

However, show them an easy way to make cash
and generate a flow of it, and how easy it
would be for them to use, and you re-light
their FIRE.

I look forward to working with you!

Best of Success,

My Story

I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with my precious wife
and three beautiful daughters.

Things weren’t always so rosy as they are now.

I can vividly remember Christmas of 1999.

I was a desk clerk at a motel, working the 11 PM - 7 AM shift.

Take-home pay was $200.00 a week.

I had a wife and three children, and no money, no business,
no savings, no retirement, no medical insurance, no home,
no assets, no anything, and worst of all – no money for
Christmas presents.

I couldn’t even afford to buy my
kids a Happy Meal at McDonalds.

A very un-happy situation, to put it mildly.

There is nothing, except poor health, as terrible
to your soul as having no money.

It can ruin your relationships with your friends and your family.

It can make you feel hopeless, helpless and despondent,
and worthless to yourself, your family and to all of society.

I was at my wits end. I had nowhere to turn.

I had run across some information somewhere online.

A story about a guy that had
made it big in network marketing.

I called him up. Here’s a millionaire marketing guy
and you can actually call him!

Unreal.

It was Christmas Eve, and this guy takes my call.

I tell him my story.

Can you imagine listening to my mess on Christmas Eve?

And get this - I am not in his network marketing downline,
or even a customer of his!

He told me I needed to read a certain book.

I bought it immediately.

He sent me some tapes.

I went to his website and read all the articles.

I got on his free email marketing newsletter and printed
every one of them and put them in a binder to study.

It took more than a full week’s pay to order his marketing course,
and it’s the best money I’ve ever invested.

A couple of months later I borrowed $1,000.00 from
a friend to go to Atlanta, Georgia to meet him in person.

Was it worth it?

Fast forward…

In August of 2000, just eight months later,
I bought my family a home.

We’ve since then paid off all our bills.

I get checks in the mail almost every day now.

In fact, I dis-like holidays because the mail doesn’t run
and I don’t get any checks in the mail!

Thank goodness for the Internet, so I can
still make money online on holidays!

My wife and I both drive new cars.

We’ll be taking two or more vacations
(and I mean good ones!) this year.

We don’t have any bills.

We are major contributors to our church.

Waiters and waitresses at restaurants like to see us come in!

I just bought my wife a new wardrobe (not an outfit or two)
for Valentine’s Day.

I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

More importantly, we’re investing the money that
we’re making with our marketing business into
real estate and creating additional income and net worth.

Can I honestly recommend marketing courses?

What do you think?

I can honestly tell you that just the FREE downloads
and FREE email series can change your life like you
cannot even imagine.

Are YOU ready for a RADICAL change in YOUR life?

If you’re ready to really start making money in
your marketing business, it doesn’t matter what
business you’re in, MLM Traffic Formula can put
you over the top!

Your business and lifestyle can change like mine did.

Best of Success!
