Systems are Important for Marketing Online

Over the years my business has evolved.  My goal has always been to help the most people possible make money and have successful businesses.  The problem I ran into is that I love working one on one with people.  When I do courses or generic trainings, I don’t feel like I’m thriving.  However, when I do a VIP day or work one on one with my Elite coaching clients and see them succeeding, THAT is my personal fulfillment.  My personal happy space.

What I’ve found is that most people are scared or just unable to make the financial commitment it takes to join the Elite coaching or schedule a VIP day.  So…I began looking for a system I could plug people into that was in line with what I teach.

Many of you know that about 6 or 7 years ago I worked with a wonderful trainer named Kim Klaver. Some time ago, Kim approached me about a new affiliate marketing company that was just getting started that had the systems in place I was looking for.  However, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to hear it. Many of you know I was involved with a “system” for quite a few years and ended up getting burned pretty badly. I wasn’t interested in promoting anyone’s “system”.

I did a lot of research and ended up joining Kim in Empower Network Here’s why:

1.  You can use Empower’s blog & training to promote your current business.

In other words, this system is “stand alone”.  It’s not connected to any MLM other than it’s own affiliate program so you don’t have to worry about anyone trying to funnel you into their deal.  There is no conflict with your existing company.  You are not required to sell or promote anything Empower.  You pay for the blogging platform (EVERYTHING is set up for you, you just blog).  You pay for the training.  I’ve gone through it.  These guys are brilliant and have some of the best training for the masses.  (Of course, you could always sign up for a VIP Day and my monthly Elite Coaching instead if you want.  😉 )

2.  You can use Empower’s blog & training to promote EN’s products and services.

Only if you WANT.  This is definitely not a requirement to use their system.  However, if you want to make 100% commissions when someone purchases their own system or training, you would want to be an affiliate of EN and promote their products.

3.  Use Empower’s blog & training to train your downline.

The training for marketing and everything is right there.  Just plug them in and off they go!

 

How will YOU use Empower?

Was 2012 Your Best Year Yet?

WOW…what a year this has been.  It seems every year in my life just gets better and better.  I am excited to be starting a new year on Tuesday.  Are you?

I hear people complaining about the economy all the time.  What they don’t realize is that the economy is not what’s bad.  It’s the nature of the jobs today.  We are moving more toward an electronic age.  Everything is online.  There are more home based millionaires today than there were total millionaires about ten years ago. But…how can that be with such a horrible economy?  It’s all a lie!!

The people willing to put out the time, effort and money to learn how to work WITH this changing world.  More people are shopping online than ever before.  More people are working online than ever before.

Where are you at the end of 2012?  Was it a better or worse year than 2011?  You can’t continue to do what you’ve always done and claim that life and the economy are getting worse.  The economy is great for people who are willing to work WITH the changes that come along instead of doing the same things that no longer work.

Make 2013 your best year ever.  Get started right with my “name your own price” New Year Group Coaching special.

Happy New Year!!  Here’s to making 2013 your greatest year!!

Social Space Group Coaching

Most of you who know me know that I do not sugar coat things.  I will tell you like it is and tell you straightforward the way I see it.  I won’t beat around the bush to get to the point.

With that said…in the past couple months I’ve taken four facebook marketing courses from “gurus” online.  Each course was at least $300.  I wanted to see what these guys were teaching.

What did I learn?

Absolutely NOTHING of value!! 

I learned that the reason I see so many people posting quotes and nothing else is because these nitwits taught them to do it.

I learned that the reason some network marketers are joining groups of network marketers and posting their pitch constantly is because these nitwits taught them to do so.

I learned from other course participants that when these methods are not working, these “gurus” tell them it’s because they aren’t posting enough.  Yup…that’s right  Not posting enough.   One poor lady posts to 15 different network marketing groups and on her own wall twice per day each and she was told that she’s not posting enough.

I am shocked and pissed!!

These people are taking hundreds of dollars from those of you in MLM, direct sales, real estate, etc… and teaching NOTHING of value!!

January 7th is the start of my New Year Social Space Group Coaching.  The investment is nowhere near what these “gurus” are charging and it really works.  I’ve got people joining my MLM that I don’t even know.   They have seen me on social spaces and “feel like they know me”.  I can teach you how to create that.  HINT – It’s NOT pitching your deal all over the place.

If you are not willing to learn how to properly market your business and if you are happy where you are, ignore this offer.  It will never be offered at this great price again.

If you are serious about wanting to move your business forward and make 2013 your greatest year ever, I hope to see you join the coaching in January.  Based on questions and emails I’ve received, many of you need to be part of this group.

Here’s to a prosperous 2013!!

PS – This group coaching is not just facebook, but social space marketing.  I’ve taught this material to some of my elite coaching clients and they are seeing a drastic increase in their sponsoring.  Isn’t your business worth this small investment?

Main Reason for Failure Online

I recently opened up some coaching slots. My intent was to offer this at a great discount to those who could FOLLOW DIRECTIONS.  If someone is unable to follow directions, it is a waste of my time and their money to hire me because they are NOT COACHABLE.

I sent an email to my list that clearly said

Many of you have asked me for one on one coaching.  I’ve decided to open up a few spots.  Unfortunately, I can not work one on one with everyone.  I can, however, fit a handful of you into my schedule.  If you want to apply for coaching with me, email roxanne at coachroxanne dot com and put “APPLICATION FOR COACHING” in the subject line.  Tell me what you are working on, where you are now and what you need help with.  Life or business…I can help.

Eight people replied.  Here are a few of the responses (the rest were similar);

  • I want to work with you.
  • Will you coach me for free please.
  • I love your trainings but have no money.  Can you work with me free?
  • Since I bought a course from you in the past can you teach me everything you know.

Now….I’m not in business for charity.  My prices are VERY reasonable compared to what others charge.  I have given away a LOT of free trainings in the past.

I am totally shocked at the online mentality of people.  Everyone wants something for NOTHING.  Life does not happen that way.  You spend time or you spend money.  Everything I’ve learned, I’ve paid for with time and/or money.  It makes me very sad when I see these people struggling.  Many of them I’ve been acquainted with for years.  And years later they are still wondering why they are not successful.

HELLOOOO???  Are you serious?

If just ONE of them had replied and actually followed the instructions in the email, I probably would have been so excited to find someone who is coachable that I would have given them a huge discount and given them way more value than they paid for.

======================

I recently told people about a program online that costs ONE MEASLY DOLLAR for the first 30 days.  They walk you through step by step how to make money online.  There are videos showing you EXACTLY what to do and EXACTLY what to say.   If people can simply FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, you can be successful making money online.  I am amazed (I SHOULDN’T BE) at the number of people who replied to say “I can’t afford $1” or “I don’t have the time to do this”.  OMG…really??  Are you kidding me?  Some of those people who have no time are playing facebook games for HOURS every day.

======================

A couple months ago, I had someone purchase a 6 WEEK self study course from me.  This course is clearly delivered in 6 WEEKLY lessons.  That was stated on the order page.  This particular woman had multiple failures to follow through.  First, she was directed by my payment processor to a page that clearly said

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PAYMENT

BUT WAIT!!  YOU’RE NOT DONE YET

Just one more step.  In order to receive the modules, you will need to fill out the form below. 

My payment processor verified that she was, indeed, directed to this page.  My stat counter verified that her IP address visited that page immediately after payment.  She emailed me to say that she did not get access to the course.  The reason was that she did not follow directions and did not fill out the form.  I did not tell her that, I simply apologized and gave her access to the form to fill out.  She then emailed me to tell me that the links in my email do not work.  I verified that the correct links were in my autoresponder series and send her the link to the first weekly lesson.  At that point I suspected her email was stripping the links so I said “If you can’t get the remaining weeks, just email me.”  I did not hear back from her.  Now, at this point, I know for a fact that this person received module ONE.  However, she did not send in homework from module ONE.  This was her SECOND failure to follow directions on her part.  Over the next few weeks, I checked with my autoresponder periodically to be sure the lessons were being sent to her.  They were.  I did not hear from her so I assumed she was getting the lessons.  She did not send in homework from lesson one, which I know she received so her failure to follow directions and send in homework was not an indication of anything.

WEEKS LATER…after the entire course was sent to her and I took the course down to redo it….she emailed me to say that she never received anything beyond week one and she wanted a refund.  ???????  I was very nice and let her know that my terms are 30 days on refunds and since it had been well beyond the 30 days, I could not do that.  I offered her a couple different options, one being a free one hour coaching session (worth well over $500) .  She wanted NOTHING but a refund.  We have multiple failures to follow through on her part.

In conclusion, failure to follow directions and failure to actually WANT to better your life are the main reasons that you are not successful at making money from home.
