Conclusion - Learn The NEW Universal Truths of Network Marketing

Hi Again!

Yesterday was very busy for me. I had every intention of completing "Learn The NEW Universal Truths of Network Marketing". My offline business in mortgage processing did not allow for me complete it. So, I am going to pick up where I left off yesterday.

Why Network Marketing Companies Need Reps

Why would a company pay you to recommend their products when they could just spend money on advertising instead? Well, in short - its the most beneficial way to do business GLOBALLY.

Advertising is a hit or miss, we all know that. Networking companies could spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a national ad campaign, and there is still a chance it wouldn’t be profitable, and it would only be aired nationally.

On the other hand, with the network marketing model, the company pays only when a sale is made. It’s a win/win situation for them and their reps.

GDI loves network marketing because it has allowed them to expand their product and opportunity into over 200 countries worldwide. They know they could not have done this without their reps, so they choose to reward them handsomely for their efforts.

Reps are also needed to train and motivate their downlines. They work as a team to achieve a common goal, and they love doing business that way!

When is the Right Time to Join a Network Marketing Company?

Does timing matter when it comes to joining a network marketing company? Well, only you know when the time is right for you. Most companies never hit their full market saturation.
There are usually two major phases of growth where it’s very fun to be a part of a network marketing company.

1) Early Growth Phase – in the early startup growth phase, a company starts to pick up steam and build its base of distributors. It can be extra- profitable to join and start building your network in a company during this phase.

2) Momentum Phase - in this phase, word starts getting out about a company and serious reps start making very good money. This is where “duplication” really kicks in and organizations start taking on a life of their own. This is the 2-3 year period before a company hits its “critical mass” and becomes a household name.

If you want to make a lifelong income in a network marketing company, it is highly recommended that you join a company during one of these phases, before the company hits critical mass.

GDI is currently in its first growth phase. Although the company has been around marketing domain names since 1999, as of this writing (early 2005) – the opportunity has been around less than a year.

The company is starting to attract the attention of serious network marketing players, which in turn is beginning to make GDI reps some very nice income as a result of outstanding activity and sales that are being generated. NOW is a great time to get involved with GDI, before they hit their quick growth during their momentum phase.

How to Present a Network Marketing Product

Okay, you’ve decided to become a rep of a network marketing company and it’s time to get things rolling. But how do you promote the products?

First and foremost, you must be confident in the product and know that it is everything the company says it is. If you don’t use the product yourself, you might as well find another company before you begin.

To successfully market any product, your prospects must be able to hear and adopt your own excitement about what you are selling.

The best way to market a product online is using a combination of automation, which explains and presents the product and the reps, then follow-up and answer questions, and tells prospects where to signup.

An example of such a automated presentation GDI uses can be found at:

GDI keeps it simple by, SHOWING PEOPLE THEIR MOVIE. The movie does a very good job of signing people up for a free trial of with their company. Those who don’t signup immediately after watching it often just have a question or two before they signup, so it’s always a good idea to follow-up whenever possible.

If you are working with another company, make sure that they have a set way of doing things that isn’t going to require you to memorize lengthy sales pitches or ingredient lists. Most of your prospects just care, “What’s in it for me”, so the company presentation needs to get to that as soon as possible.

YOUR job as a rep is to be there to answer questions and inform, and to guide people in the right direction.

A Closing Technique that Really Works

People make closing the sale a lot more difficult than it has to be. To sum up what “closing” really is, it’s asking for the sale. (Or in the case of GDI, FREE SIGNUP).

Before you ask for that sale, you must know that you have given your prospect proper motivation to purchase (or join).

Know a person’s reason for looking at your opportunity in the first place, so you can show them how your opportunity fits into what they are looking for. There are so many great reasons for joining and promoting a network marketing company, I’m absolutely sure you’ll find plenty that fit in perfectly with the prospect you are talking to.

Simply put, just bring out their own motivations for wanting what you have, then ask for the sale in the most simple way possible. Don’t beat around the bush. Answer any questions they have, then ask for the sale and be confident that the outcome will be what you want it to be. It’s as simple as that. This technique works both on the phone and by email.

The key is to LISTEN and LEARN about your prospects.

Training and Duplication

No matter what company you work with, they should have a system for training and duplication, to show new reps what needs to be done and how the business works, and tools that will allow them to duplicate the success of their upline members who are already successful.

A simple proven system is key. GDI has this. Does your company?

When a new member signs up with GDI, the member receives an entire series of training/instruction emails. They also have access to company’s twice weekly opportunity calls, so members can bring prospects to them if they are not comfortable answering questions themselves.

To get a sampling of how these conference calls work, you can listen in on one of GDI’s conference calls, right now at:

I hope it will help you in making a decision to work with a great network marketing company in the near future and has shown you why GDI is an outstanding opportunity that you can get started with, for free.

Learn The NEW Universal Truths of Network Marketing

What is network marketing?

In simplest terms, it’s the promoting and distribution of products through personal referrals.

When you tell someone about a movie you enjoyed, or recommend a restaurant to a friend, that could be considered network marketing. – even though the companies involved are not “network marketing companies”.

A “network marketing company” is a company that has employed the power of network marketing and that compensates distributors or “reps” for telling others about their products.

Network marketing is one of the hottest ways to make money today, with literally MILLIONS of new distributors coming into the industry each year.

To some, “MLM” or multi-level marketing has a negative connotation, but a lot has changed. Today, network marketing is a globally accepted way of doing business, and is even taught at major universities.

These days there are some excellent, legitimate network marketing opportunities, one specifically being, Global Domains International, Inc. – the worldwide domain name registry for all .ws domain names!

Instead of advertising globally, they would rather share their profits with YOU for helping get the word out about their awesome $10 per month domain name and web site hosting package. It’s a product that the whole world can use. I have personally seen for myself why GDI is a hidden gem in the network marketing industry.

What to Look for in a Network Marketing Company

Besides the obvious things you should look for in any company you work with (like making sure it’s legitimate), there are many guidelines that you should go by to make sure you are working with a company that is going to provide for you month after month, year after year and leave you with a legacy of wealth.


First you want to make sure the company you are working with is stable. There are many “mom and pop” start-up companies these days that are run from a kitchen table. They are usually easy to spot – but not always. Make sure to do your research on the background of the company that you are considering.

If the company doesn’t have at least a 3-year track record of success, they have no foundation to build on. They are still in a learning phase and you will be a guinea pig in their experimentation. You don’t want that. One reason Global Domain International, Inc. is so stable is that they have a 5 year track record of success in their current industry – domain names. Although their home based business is very new, they have been selling domain names successfully since 1999.

In fact, GDI was recently named the 37th fastest growing privately held company in the United States on Inc. Magazines “Top 500” list, and #5th fastest growing in the State of California. Success like that doesn’t happen by accident.

Check out the opportunity you are considering with the Better Business Bureau or any other local agency that can give you information.

The product you will be marketing is also directly related to stability. I’ve seen successful companies come crumbling to the ground because of false or improvable claims made about their products, either by the company or by representatives. Just one well-publicized ridiculous claim, and a company that is on top of the world today can be gone tomorrow.

That’s part of the reason I know I have a REAL winner with the Global Domains International product. It’s a domain name, and a web site hosting package that really CANNOT be misrepresented in a way that is harmful to anyone.

It’s a product that MILLIONS of people are already using , except their .WS (dot ws) domains are more wide open than most top-level domains in the world. Many of their customers and affiliates get their first choice of domain name, whereas other more saturated top-level domains, like .com, would have already been taken.

Another factor that has an effect on the stability of a company is whether it is in debt or has cash in the bank. It is very beneficial to know that you are working with a debt-free company that has plenty of cash available for paying reps, and for product development, growth and expansion.

Global Domains International is an Inc 500 ranked, debt free Internet GIANT, that is endorsed by the Federal Chamber of Commerce.

So in choosing a network marketing company you should consider the following: Does the company offer a product that people can use, and do you know WHERE to find the kind of people who can use the product? And, is the product renewable?

Not a lot needs to be said here, it is pretty explanatory. To succeed in network marketing, you must have a product that people use, AND you must be able to tap into potential customers.

There are no network marketing companies I know of marketing cold medicine, because it would be nearly impossible to locate the customers who need it.

GDI product, on the other hand, is something that can be used by anyone who wants to promote anything online, anyone who wants to make more money, anyone who wants to share family photos, or anyone who can use their own website for any purpose. Nearly everyone online can use the GDI product.

The product you are marketing must be renewable. That is the basis of network marketing. You want to be paid again and again for work you do NOW. GDI customers have a tendency to want to keep their product forever once they have their web site setup and are using email accounts on their own domain. It’s kind of like cable TV. Even the people who didn’t know they could use their own web site end up loving it and don’t want to get rid of it!

Is the opportunity fast? Can you make money starting today?

Many companies require you to reach a certain level of sales volume before you earn a commission. Or, they require that the commissions on your first few sales are paid to YOUR SPONSOR instead of you, as a “training bonus”.

You want an opportunity that can start earning you commissions from the FIRST time you tell someone about the product, and you want DUPLICATION to kick in fast so the people that you refer to the company will also be earning you money fast.

The key to fast growth in your income and your organization is having a SIMPLE compensation plan that can be explained in under a minute and understood by everyone who hears it, and having a proven way of marketing the product, that uses AUTOMATION to do work for you even while you are not working yourself.

GDI has developed a $250,000 marketing system that does most of the hard work for their reps. They have a complete online animated presentation that does all the selling, telling and explaining – and they have a state of the art marketing system that allows you to simply input a prospect into the system and it presents, answers questions, and follows up for you automatically.

All this together equals FAST growth!

Is the opportunity UNLIMITED?

Think about this. Would you like to recruit a heavy hitter who could potentially earn you hundreds of thousands of dollars per month for his/her efforts, only to find out that your company’s compensation plan maxes out at $10K per month. Of course not!

The company that you work with should not limit your success in any way. If you generate the business, you should get paid.

What we are talking about here is an UNLIMITED Uni-Level compensation plan. This means the number of people you can refer and keep frontline to you should be unlimited. GDI plan is a 5 level unilevel. That means you can personally refer 5 people frontline, or 5 million. It does not matter. Each of them can refer as many as they want, and so on. Nobody is limited.

You get paid 5 levels deep, for ANYONE in your organization. The only limit to the amount of money you can earn with GDI is the number of people in the world who can use their product. They place no intentional limits on your success or income.

Is the product affordable?

It is no secret that network marketers are tired of asking people for $195 up front to get started, then another $79 per month just to stay in business. These are made up numbers but if you’ve been investigating income opportunities online, I’m sure they are not too far off from some you have seen.

You shouldn’t have to go broke just to start a network marketing business. Remember that YOU are doing the company a favor by marketing their product for them. If you are not going to be using a $100 starter pack of marketing materials, you shouldn’t have to purchase a $100 starter pack of marketing materials. That makes sense, right?

High start up costs and a high monthly cost to stay in business leads to attrition in an organization, and a high failure rate. And, a high startup cost also leads to massive rejection. Reps are sick and tired of being rejected all the time. So, it’s nice to have a product that is priced low enough that it’s easy to market without fear of rejection.

A low cost product leads to a very low attrition rate, meaning even if you do very little, it is possible for your organization to GROW and move forwards – instead of backwards.

GDI’s product costs only $10 per month, and they let EVERYONE try it for free for one week. Their reps basically get paid for GIVING AWAY trial memberships. They don’t have to “sell”. It is like you being able to refer a friend to a restaurant and telling them they can eat there free for a week, then getting paid a commission on all their future visits to the restaurant, after they are hooked on the food.

Nice rejection free way of doing business, isn’t it.

Tomorrow I am going to provide some more truths about Network Marketing Companies. Stay tuned in!

I hope this information will help you in making a decision to work with a great network company in the near future.

Is Affiliate Marketing For You?

There are several reasons for desiring to start an internet home-based business. For some it is simply to supplement their income. Others would like to gradually replace their offline income. Then there are those who would like to quit their current job which they absolutely hate. In the nutshell, this is why the majority of us today go online to start a business. Affiliate marketing is a great way to start making money using the internet. However, is it for you?

Affiliate marketing is an income generating business between a web merchant and one or more affiliates. The affiliate is paid a commission for referring clicks, leads or most often sales to the merchant. An Affiliate's advantage is, he can make money in a business without having the upfront costs of creating his own product. The Affiliate doesn't have to worry about e-commerce, bookkeeping, or even customer support, for it is the merchant's responsibility.

If you are certain you would like to be an affiliate marketer with all the benefits the affiliate can get, before you begin your venture, first decide what areas interest you most. Each of us have our own interest or hobby. Some love all kinds of books, music, and movies while others are into sports and traveling. There are also people who love to grow flowers and love pets. These things help us to relax and forget our everyday problems and troubles and these things are common to people.

Next, ask yourself, what products do you know the most and what products could you do the best job selling? Once you discover your specialty, perseverance, patience, and determination come next. These are truly necessary qualities to be a good affiliate marketer.

Being an affiliate marketer is not an easy task. You have to learn effective techniques of marketing your product or service. Advertising methods that were previously working may become ineffective because of new and changing internet technology. Affiliate marketers must stay tuned into effective promotion strategies and resources. This is accomplished by becoming involved with some type of internet business community such as forums.

While keeping abreast of new marketing trends, you will no doubt have other marketers attracting you to look at this or that particular business opportunity. That is what marketing is all about. However, a good seasoned marketer has learned not to sign up for every offer put in front of him. Successful affiliate marketers listened, learned and were taught by mentors or experienced marketers who cared about the success of others. Make a point early on to find such a person to help guide you along the way.

There are some people who think just having affiliate links on their website will bring them good profits. This can have some truth possibly, but most expert internet marketing specialists still believe making use of strong marketing campaigns gets the most visitors to affiliate sites. To get the most buyers returning to affiliate sites requires the commitment of establishing good
long-lasting relationships with your customers and visitors.

It would be wise to avoid the same mistakes some affiliates make everyday. They are only building a short-term business where they just make a quick, small sale. Make sure you understand that your success depends on building a trusted long-term affiliate business and not just something to make a few fast bucks.

Often times, too many online business pursuers lose out because they become impatient and are not willing to take the action required to move in the right direction. Make a point to know what your strengths, capabilities and abilities are for your chosen quest. It will save you both time and money. If you know you are absolutely terrible at something that is required for your affiliate business, just simply pay to have it done for you. There are many low-cost resources online to complete those tasks. Lastly, the most important thing an affiliate marketer needs is a burning desire and passion to succeed in affiliate marketing.

How To Get Off On the Right Internet Marketing Foot

More and More people are lured into internet marketing opportunities and you might be one of them. Indeed, internet marketing is one of the most effective means of generating a full-time income through the Internet. It’s a fair deal between the merchandiser and his distributors (affiliates) as both benefit from each sale materialized. Like in other kinds of business, a great deal of the profits in network marketing depends on the affiliate’s advertising, promoting and selling strategies. Everyday, as the online marketing industry expands, competition heightens as well. An Internet Marketer must be creative enough to employ unique and effective ways to convince potential buyers to purchase the products and services offered.

Compared to traditional advertising practices, internet marketing programs are more effective, risk-free and cost-efficient. But why do many people still fail in online home based businesses? There are a lot of reasons and a lot of areas in the program to look into. The most critical aspect is advertising. Many online marketers fail in this aspect because they lack hard work, which is the most important thing in network marketing and in all other kinds of business as well. Although it pays to be lucky, you cannot merely rely on it. Internet marketing isn’t as simple as directing customers to the business site. If you want to earn big, of course, you have to invest time and great amount of hard work in promoting the products. As earlier mentioned, the competition is very high and customers nowadays are very wise, too. After all, who doesn’t want to get the best purchase—that is, to pay less and get more in terms of quantity and quality.

Lack of preparation is also a reason why one fails at internet marketing, whether he is a merchandiser or an affiliate. Part of the preparation is researching. On the part of the merchant, he has to be highly selective in choosing the right affiliate websites for the online business program. In order to be sure he has the best choices, he must have exhausted his means in looking for highly interested affiliates whose sites are sure fit to his products and services. The affiliate site’s visitors must match his targeted customers. On the other hand, the affiliate marketer must likewise research on the good-paying merchandisers before he signs up for an affiliate program. He must ensure that the merchants’ products and services match his interests so he can give his full attention and dedication to the program. He can get valuable information by joining online marketing forums, comparing different affiliate programs and reading articles on affiliate marketing where he can get tips from experienced internet marketers on how to choose the best programs and products with high conversion rate.

The website is a very important tool in the network marketing program. As an affiliate marketer, you should plan how your site is going to be, from domain name to the design, the lay-out, the content, and ads. Some users are particular about what they see at first glance and thus when they find your site ugly, they won’t read through the content even if your site has many things to say and offer. On the other hand, there those who want information more than anything else. Internet marketers with “rich-content” web sites are usually the ones who prosper in this business because the content improves traffic to the site. Websites with high quality contents—with relevant keywords and more importantly, right information about the product and not empty hyped-up advertisements—allow you to earn big in affiliate marketing even when you’re asleep. If you are unable to sustain the interest of your site visitor, you won’t be able to lead him to the merchants’ site. No click-through means no sale and thus, no income on your part.

Selecting a top level domain name is also crucial to the success of online home based business. Lots of affiliate sites don’t appear in the search engine results because they are deemed as personal sites. Major search engines and directories would think of your site as transient ones and thus, they won’t list it in the directory. Before you decide on the domain name, know first what you are going to promote. Many fail because their sites are not appropriately named, so even when they feature the exact products the customer is looking for, the customer might think the site is not relevant and thus, won’t enter the site.

Above all, an effective internet marketer must be willing to learn more. Certainly, there are still a lot of things to learn and so online marketer must continue to educate himself so he can improve his marketing strategies. Many fail because they don’t grow in the business and they are merely concerned about earning big quickly. If you want long-term and highly satisfactory results, take time to learn the ins and outs of the business. Continue to improve your knowledge especially with the basics in online marketing ranging from advertising to programming, web page development, and search engine optimization techniques. Likewise, study the needs and wants of your site users and how different merchandisers compete with each other.

Keep on trying; don’t get disappointed if your first attempts did not pay off. Thousands are attracted by the possibility of generating skyrocketing incomes through affiliate marketing and so they sign up in any affiliate program without carefully understanding every aspect of the business. When they don’t get instant results, they quit and sign up for another program and repeat the process of just copying links and referring them to others. When you sign up for an affiliate program, don’t expect to get rich in an instant. Work on your advertising strategies and be patient. You’ll never know how much you can get if you don’t persevere.
