Old School Is Out! Time To Learn The Latest Network Marketing Techniques

Updated on November 28, 2010

I Too Have Failed In Business

 If you've ever been involved in old school network marketing, there's no doubt you've heard of the 3 foot rule, hung flyers anywhere and everywhere, bugged your friends and family to join and held meetings in your home or in some hotel.  I know that's the way it was when I joined my first network marketing company.

Many years ago, my father got me involved in my very first network marketing company.  It was a long distance phone service.  I remember the sales pitch I got that very first night and how easy it all seemed at the time.  I joined that night and began to make my plan of attack shortly after.  I was told to start with my family and friends since they would be most likely to take the service based on my recommendation.  From there they would be able to see how easy it is to sell and they would want in as well.

It all sounded so simple.  But the fact of the matter is that I really had no idea what I was doing.  I was in my mid twenties, had little knowledge of the service I was selling, was faced with questions I did not have the answers to and was consequently faced with nothing but rejection.

After months of plowing through every person I knew, the only advice I could get was to go out and either cold call door to door or buy the leads from a service.

I spent a bunch of money for business cards, letterhead and envelopes as well as promotional literature that was not provided by the company and I set out to do what my upline had told me to do.  But this led me to nothing more than more rejection and an angry wife for having wasted so much time and money.

Now I was out of money, and had nothing to show for it.

Fast forward 20 years...

Now in my forties, I begin a search on the Internet for ways to make money online.  Having spent the better part of my life at the same company, which a family friend owns, I now have some business experience and feel better equipped to run my own business from home.

So I sign up for another network type business and follow the advice of my upline, just as I had done years before.  And guess what, I got the same results as I had before. Nothing...

In an attempt to gain answers why this kept happening to me, I scoured the Internet for something to tell me what I was doing wrong.  That's when I found what I consider to be the thing that saved my business...

That one thing was Magnetic Sponsoring by Mike Dillard.

What I learned right off the bat was that "old school" marketing techniques like I described earlier just don't work anymore.  I needed to throw away any notion that I could be successful by using anything I had learned from my past businesses.  It was time to come into the 21st century and learn the latest and greatest network marketing techniques from someone who was a proven winner.

Mike Dillard, A Man You Can Trust and A Proven Winner

All you need to do is listen to the way Mike Dillard talks to you in his "7 Day Free Video Bootcamp" videos and you know you can trust him, well at least I did. To me, Mike is more than just another "Internet Guru". He is a teacher, a mentor and a role model for anyone seeking knowledge and success in network marketing.

In these 7 free videos Mike explained how I could attract an endless stream of prospects to me ready to join and actually get paid to prospect.

These videos have really changed the way I do my business, and if you're looking for help I think they can help you too.
