Unless that four letter word is LOVE, then no it’s not.

I  know, the word LOVE is a bit dramatic, however I couldn’t think of another four letter word that would convey “positivity” or my support for Multi Level Marketing (MLM)

From what I know and learned about MLM’s and Amway in particular it rewards those who work hard. There is this perception out there that your “sponsor” the person who signs you up will always make more money then you and they won’t be working as hard as you will. This is far from the truth, the person who works the hardest reaps the most.

If you are at all sceptical, please have a look at this video, it clearly explains the business model .

As the video states Amway is NOT a get rich quick offer, just like all good things in life, it requires us to work for it. It requires persistence, patients and yes, hard work.

Would love to hear from you, you can ask me any questions in the comment section or go to my contacts page.

Thanks to all my new and continued followers, I so appreciate it!! Would love to have more.

Have a great night!

in my search for more followers, i found…

Affiliate Marketing ……… I am reluctant to admit I had never heard of this term or what it means.

I stumbled upon it watching  a Youtube video on how to generate more followers to my blog, which hopefully in return will help me with my 20K goal. I found great advice; leverage Social Media sites, ensure they re all integrated, become a guest blogger(I will touch on this little gem in another post), and a lot other great tips.

But what really caught my attention was this concept of Affiliate Marketing and how you can use your blog to make money. Love it!

Maybe some of you are not similar with it either, so I found a short youtube video that sums it up. What is really embarrassing is that this video is 6 years old!! Talk about being out of the loop!

The more I thought about this concept I realized I am currently doing Affiliate Marketing, except in my case you buy the product directly from me and not Amway and that in lies my challenge. The Amway model is about face to face networking and not really designed for promotion on the internet. Because of this model I am left to build my own internet marketing materials(blogs, promos, ads. pop ups ect) to attract customers, where as other companies such as Amazon have this already built for you and your only job is to build content that attracts and promotes the products on Amazon.

Amazon Affiliate site, incase you may want to try it. There are a plethora of companies that offer this but Amazon seems to a popular one.

So how does this help me….lol it doesn’t.

However  I am so intrigued with this concept, of generating an income solely from your laptop with little ties to the products or the company you are promoting , I thought it was worth sharing. In fact I am now more convinced than ever I will be successful selling  Amway to customers strictly over the internet. Admittedly with a little more work a head of me but just need to find ways to be a more creative 🙂

Getting myself somewhat back  on track, click here to have a look at all the great products Amway offers, and be sure to ask me how you can buy them at a discount.

Hoping you found this info some what interesting, would love to hear your views on this topic, so please leave a comment.

building trust, by making a connection

If I think about those who are successful in my life, one thing they all have in common is their ability to connect and build trust with those around them.

Trust, Colorful words hang on rope by wooden pegI am thinking that in order for this experiment to be successful, I need to be able to connect and build trust with those I am in contact with in my social media groups.

Pretty sure that is easier said than done, so of course I have been googling my way to a solution, here is what has resonated with me about making a connection and building trust on line.(sounds a bit like on line dating ha!)

1. Be transparent! This can some times be difficult for me as I am trying to keep my personal social media sites separate from my Amway Experiment site, as I don’t want my friends and family to feel any pressure. So if you are really curious about who I am and if I am legit, here is my LinkedIn profile, feel free to connect with me there, however I do use this LinkedIn site to leverage my professional contacts for work, so there will never be any mention of Amway.

My LinkedIn Profile

I think I have also made it very clear on what my intentions are and have never hid that this blog is about MLM’s and Amway. I find with many sites, you don’t know what you are getting until you give them your contact info. If  it’s such great idea/product just be upfront about it, people are smart, you haven’t tricked them 🙂

2. Be helpful / do something for others / ask for nothing in return.  – so basically what you put out into the world is what you get back!

I genuinely  have come across some great blogs, twitter accounts, articles on line and I am doing my best to share, like comment ect.,  on those that resonated with me.

Here is are 2 great sites I found on line that helped me with this post. Social Media Examiner and CopyBlogger  Check them out for any help you may need with your own blog.

3. Don’t constantly sell. Teaching is a much better way to gain sales.

To be honest, I don’t really want to sell you anything, I am hoping to offer you an opportunity that is right for you! Multi Level Marketing is not for everyone. This blog is about connecting to those who have an interest in MLM’s and if you have ever thought about giving it a try.

As I start to get to use the products more, I will share my experiences with you and in turn you maybe interested in buying Amway products also.

4. Exceed expectations. Surprise people by being insanely helpful.

This one seems to be a no brainer in life! I have been amazed at the amount of followers who have shared and retweeted for me! and I hoping that in some small way I can help others that are thinking of following the path of MLM’s and hopefully be insanely helpful to U!

As always I appreciate the follows, likes, shares and comments!

Have a great day!
