I was driving home tonight from one of my favorite local restaurants
listening to sports radio.Â I am not going to get into all the details
of University of KY football, but our quaterback hasÂ been an issue.
The young man that was supposed to be the starter this year got kicked
off the team right before the season started.Â So for the most part our
quarter back situation has been shared with a freshman, and a sophomore.Â
One of the callers said it didnâ€™t seem like the team â€œPlayed forâ€ the
sophomore when he was in the game.
This really started me to think about this concept as it relates to network
marketing.Â I have met so many people in the industry who have achieved a
high level in their companies marketing structure but they have very little
if any respect from their downline team.Â
WHY IS THIS?
Your team must know you have their best interest in mind.Â They must feel
like, if I follow this person, they will take me were I want to go.Â As a
leader you must feel like if you follow me, I will take you were you want to go.
Ladies & gentlemen this aura doesnâ€™t happen unless you build your business
on design based upon duplicatable systems.Â Â If you would like this point

The question isâ€¦DO FREE CLASSIFIED AD SITES REALLY WORK? The answer is yes and no. I know that is not the answer you wanted to hear, but it is the truth.
Let me try to explain further. All marketing is numbers! The more advertising methods you are using in the market place, ultimately the more website visitors you will have and the more sales you will make.
With that said, a few years ago when we rolled out our web cash leads program (http://www.WebCashLeads.com) we had associates using every method possible to drive traffic to their affiliate sites. There is no question that the best 2 ways to drive traffic to any website is with Pay Per Click Search engines such as Google and Overture along with solo ads in marketing ezines.
However FREE classified ad sites will work, provided that you are promoting a product or service that ADVERTISER can benefit from. Please re-read that statement. You must promote a product or services that A D V E R T I S E R S want!
What I am really saying is that not that many consumers actually visit a lot of the FREE advertising sites on the web, but a TON of Website owners see ads while searching to make sure their personal ad appears on the site. Does that make sense?
So if you can promote a product or service that website owners can use your chances for clicks and sales increase dramatically. I can tell you dozens of success stories from marketers that have used FREE classified sites to market their products and services. I can also share with you dozens of horror stories from associates who have wasted hours posting to FREE Classified Ad sites with little or no results.
So should you use FREE Advertising Sites are not? After all it can be very time consuming to post to these sites? We personally post to FREE advertising sites every week, and we make sales weekly. However we have a secret to our success.
We use a completely automated Classified Ad Blaster that allows us to submit unlimited free ads to over 50,000 classified ads sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse! That is right we can submit our ad to over FIFTY THOUSAND free classified ad sites in less than 5 minutes!
With those kinds of â€œnumbersâ€ no wonder we get a lot of website traffic and sales weekly from FREE Classified Ad sites. You can work hard, or you can work smart. In all businesses time is money and marketing comes down to numbers. Our submitter allow us to go post on huge numbers of boards in less than 5 minutes, we think it makes much more sense to approach marketing with FREE classified ad sites this way, than trying to submit our ads 1 by 1, what about you? You can get all the details about the classified ad submitter we use, along with several other great promotional products at www.Tunza.TipForSuccess.com

Yes online and offline classifieds, like every marketingÂ method
should be PART of your advertising campaign.Â I don’t believe
you should base all of your marketing around 1 particular method
no matter how effective it is.
â€œthe money is in the listâ€.Â Â Â Every Internet marketing seminar
you attend, you will here that statement over and over dozens
This concept is true, but I personally believe the money is in the relationship you have with your list.Â Â Ultimately, the success you have with your list will be in direct proportion to the value you provide.Â Â If you donâ€™t get this right, over the long haul a list with a bunch of names and email address is of no value.
You must focus on providing value to your list not making money.Â If you provide value, the money will come.Â Ultimately your income is in direct proportion to the value you add the market place that you serve.
The function of your website is to gather data from the potential
customers and clients that visit your website.Â Follow-up is always
more important than the initial contact, however you must be able to capture the prospects data when they visit your website or you have no way to follow up.
Unfortunately in todayâ€™s market place being able to collect legitimate data from your website visitors is becoming more and more of a challenge.Â I have seen statistics that indicated that over the past eleven months the number of people responding to lead capture or squeeze pages with legitimate data has decreased over 600%.
Think about this do you personally have a catch all email account that you never check?
So do your potential clients and customers.Â This is becoming more and more of challenge for credible marketers who wishes to market online.
So what is the answer?Â How can we increase our odds and insure that more potential customers and clients leave us correct, primary data?Â It may sound simple, but we have been testing this method for more than a year and have seen a drastic increase not only in amount of data received, but also correct data!
Offer your website visitor something of real value, free or at a ridiculously low investment that must be sent to them through the postal service.Â Dale are you telling me that I need to start mailing them booklets, CDâ€™s, DVDâ€™s or other physical products that could be delivered digitally?Â Â I am not telling you, you have to do anything.Â I am saying that if you want to increase the your opt in rates on your lead capture/squeeze pages with real useable data, this is the answer.
Think about it.Â If a potential customer/client is expecting you to mail them a physical product, arenâ€™t they going to give you their correct postal mailing address?Â Of course they are, and the odds of them including their correct phone number and primary email address also increases dramatically.
Doesnâ€™t this make perfect sense?Â It seems fairly obvious doesnâ€™t it?Â Yes there are a few challenges with this method, what physical product do you offer?Â Â Do your research; you will be able to locate a CD, DVD, or Booklet that you can buy in bulk.Â After you locate an â€œentrepreneur mindedâ€ product it simply becomes a matter of buying shipping supplies and adding a postage program to your computer and you are ready to go.Â This may sound like a little extra work, and it is, but it better than watching the value of your existing squeeze page and lead capture pages diminish every month.

Do youÂ have any suggestions on how to promote for an event. I joined a newer MLM
and they are coming to Chicago to help promote the opportunity. I know that it is
going to be big if I can get the word out, but I am looking for any suggestions. I have
done word of mouth and I am going to start putting flyers everywhere this weekend.
Oh yeah the event is on the 30th and 31st of this month so I only have a week to get
the word out and create a buzz. That would be another question how do you create a
buzz in a new area? Upline says word of mouth, etc. but it being new here is both a
blessing and a curse. A blessing becuase I am one of the few that are in this MLM, and
a curse because everyone I talk to thinks it’s a scam of some kind.
Here are some tips:
Design and print tickets for the event.Â Then all adv should say for your free complimentary tickets call or visit this particular website.
* Craigs List Ads in Chicago Market Under Events also Back Page and Walmart Classifieds
*Â Buy Movie Theater Advertising in the theater that is closest to where the event will be held. (Same neighborhood)Â This is basically a power point slide which promotes the events and offers free tickets.
These ads generally show before the previews in every theater and very reasonable.
*Newspaper Inserts in the zone around the hotel where the event is going to be held offering free tickets.Â Not an ad a INSERT and only in the zone where the event is taking place.Â Most newspapers have their markets divided into 5-10 zones, and allow you to place flyers in the entire paper or specific zones.
Ok, that should give you enough to think about for now.
Much Success to You!
