How to Build your Online Business Offline

I talk a lot about getting leads through online methods, Facebook ads, instagram and solo ads. These methods involve the Internet and take a little bit of technical knowledge to implement and others require you to put your hand in your pocket to pay for traffic. . Today’s blog is about the simplest, easiest way to get online leads offline that anyone can start doing immediately and for very little money.

What Makes a Good Lead?

In the words or Ray Higdon

“A good Lead is someone who is looking for more.”

We all know people who would benefit from having more money and more freedom.  However if they have given up the fight and accept their fate usually don’t make the best leads.  You need to look for the people who want more. More time, more freedom, more quality of life, more money, whatever their MORE is, they have to have the basic hunger and desire for something more in their life.

Best Offline Way to Get MLM Leads

The best way of getting leads is attending local meetings and grabbing the contact information of the attendees and following up with them.

Here is how it works

  1. Use meetup.com and find local meetings that would typically include people “… who is looking for more.” these could include property developing groups, stock investing groups or law of attraction groups.
  2. Attend the meeting and collect business cards. Don’t talk about your business or opportunity.
  3. Grab as many business cards as you can try not to stop and talk to anybody appart from giving your name and “Listen, I have to go and meet someone over there but I did not want to miss the chance to get your contact information as I heard you talking earlier”
  4. Call every business card but before doing so have a look at their information and do a quick google search.  ask them these three questions:
    (A) How long they have been doing what they are doing?
    (B) How they got into that line of work?
    (C) What is the perfect type of prospect for them in case you run into anyone that fits their description? Let them talk, be genuinely interested  If you let them talk long enough you can usually pinpoint an area of desire or problem such as, “with the market doing what it is doing” or “been putting in a lot of hours”
  5. Have them expand on their desire, need or problem. “You mentioned the market has changed, has that been tough to deal with?” Let them talk and tell you whatever it is they have a current problem with.
  6. Give a possible solution using their language. LHere is an example from Ray Higden:

“Jim you mentioned that you were working more hours now with the market doing what it is doing and the truth is I work with a lot of professionals that are in the same exact boat. If I could show you a way to start generating some extra money without interfering with your current job, would you be open to taking a look?”

Use capture page with a slight takeaway. Most marketers make dumb promises when they are introducing their business. If they learned to do a bit of a takeaway, their results would skyrocket. Here is an example:

“Jim, I want you to keep in mind that this may or may not be for you. I meet professionals like you all the time that make a decision to work with me but either way, it is certainly great having you as a new contact. I have a brief video I can send over to you, how soon can you take a look at it?”

Why it Works So Well

People like people who follow up.  “I said I’d call you and I have”  people like that.  I remember being offered a job once just because I followed up.  People do business with people they know like and trust and following up helps to build that,  you weren’t the guy that was trying on the hard sales pitch.

Finally  Only people who want more would be bothered to go to a breakfast meeting at 8am or leave the house on a rainy November night.

4 Dirty Email Marketing Hacks That Work

I got these hacks from one of my traffic guys and as they sends out hundred of thousands emails then they should know their stuff.  Remember in email marketing an increase in open rates and clicks can is the difference between making money and not.

Now they may seem ridiculous but try them out in your emails and see if they work for you.

Special Characters In Subject Lines

Before emoji s there was unicode and email providers allow you to use them in your subject lines. You can see some examples here, but I’ve also included a screen capture below

I simply copy and paste the Unicode I’d like to display into your subject line before you sending myt email.

They key with this is to keep the unicode relevant.  If you do that, it’s possible to see double your open rate.

Resend To Unopens

Sadly, this isn’t possible with every autoresponder.  Check the help area of yours to see if you can do this.

It’s early morning and you send out an email to your list.  You get a 20% open rate and a 10% click through rate.

While those numbers are normal, they suck.

A smart way to improve your results is to resend the same email later on in the day with a new subject line to those that didn’t open the first email.

If you really want to kick it up a notch, you could do something similar with anyone that didn’t click.

For those that didn’t click, give them new reasons to click the link and see what you’ve sent them.

Ask For Replies And Read Them

Roughly 75% of the time I’ve done this, I’ve made money.

Send a brief email asking a question related to something you sell:

“Hey NAME,

If you recently ordered PRODUCT, why did you get it?

If you didn’t order it for yourself, why not?

Just hit the reply button.  I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks,

YOUR NAME”

There are numerous benefits to this, but the first is sales.

If people are replying to a message like the one above, they’re interested.  You just haven’t done a good enough job of selling them.

Take this opportunity to address their concerns and conquer them.

This also lets you see what your biggest objections are.  If you discover what they are, you can build things that are designed to overcome them into your sales messages.

Video/Image Trick

This is sneaky and if you do it wrong, you’ll upset people.

We’re so used to watching video online that we naturally click a video’s play button.

Since we can’t (yet) embed videos into an email, use an image of the video instead.  

For this to work, you’re going to have to have the video be one of the first things they see.

As long as you do that, you’ll see people clicking the image like crazy.

The Best Diet and Supplement Regime to Combine With NowLifeStyle and HIIT Training?

The Best Diet and Supplement Regime to Combine With HIIT

So you just discovered NowLifeStyle and HIIT Training?

No doubt you’re loving just how easy it is to get a fat burning, calorie melting workout in now and you’re getting a kick out of pushing yourself so hard.

But while you’re probably feeling great, you should know that fat loss and muscle gain do not happen in the gym or on the track. Rather, they happen in the kitchen. If you really want to make the very most of NowLifeStyle and HIIT Training, then you should combine it with the right diet…

The Basics – Calories In, Calories Out

The great thing about NowLifeStyle is that it is a form of MetCon – metabolic conditioning. That is to say that it doesn’t just burn calories while you’re training, it also increases your calorie burn at rest by making your cells more efficient at burning through fat stores and sugars. Thus, even when you’re resting, you’re going to lose more weight.

But you still need to try and calculate this as much as you can and to do that, you need to figure out a rough ‘AMR’ – the total number of calories you burn in a day (this stands for ‘Active Metabolic Rate’). Likewise, you should track the calories you’re taking the NowLifestyle website what this will then allow you to do, is to make sure you are consuming fewer calories than you are burning off. If you do this, then you should lose weight – and especially with the metabolic benefits.

Carb Backloading

Some people will tell you that it is important to reduce carbs – at least the simple kind. That’s because carbs spike the blood sugar and your body responds by producing insulin, absorbing that sugar and then storing it as fat.  If you are a Diabetic like me carbs spike the blood sugar and I need to guess how much insulin i need to inject into my body.  Too little, cell damage and long term complications. Too much, a diabetic coma then death.  That might sound extreme but put simply that’s the way it is.

If you’re concerned about this, you can try something called ‘carb backloading’. Here, you simply consume complex carbs only immediately following a workout. This wouldn’t work with aerobic training but with a 7 minute NowLifeStyle it will deplete the glycogen stores in your muscles. Thus, the priority of your body will become refuelling those glycogen stores, meaning that you’ll be less likely to store the excess energy as fat!

This way, you can still enjoy your carbs but without the guilt!

Supplements

One supplement that makes a lot of sense in conjunction with a HIIT workout program is creatine. That’s because creatine allows you to recycle ATP in your system, which in turn means you can rely on the ATP-CP energy system just a little longer. This in turn means that you can go all out for a second or so more when performing the high intensity portion of your workouts. That’s a big difference and it will result in better results. All that and creatine has also been shown to add muscle (by increasing water retention in the muscles) and to boost IQ!

Meanwhile, you can also try other supplements that will enhance your cellular energy. Popular choices include l-carnitine, CoQ10 and omega 3.

You don’t need any supplements, but adding a little l-carnitine and creatine can only help you see results faster!
