Why Building a Brand for Yourself is Crucial to Success

joe stewart
Click for my Personal FB

As you read the word ‘brand‘ what comes to mind?

Coca-Cola, Apple, or maybe Amazon?

There are so many big brands out there nowadays it is hard to get noticed as a new business owner.

As an author and online marketer, I have it much easier… because I am just building my brand: The Joe Stewart brand.

Hmm that has a ring to it… maybe I’ll pick up the guitar again and start the Joe Stewart Band? Lol.

Anyways, I am not out there trying to compete with Apple or other massive companies… I compete with non-fiction authors in my niche, and other online marketers who usually make themselves look like dingbats anyway with bogus claims, and make my job really, REALLY easy.

So how did I get my brand started when I was flat broke? I started this blog in 2012 for like $18, and started writing company reviews and marketing training. Success from this blog didn’t come fast, it took consistent posting for a 90 day+ period so if you think blogging will get you hundreds of leads a day fast think again… it takes a lot of time, energy and passion.

After publishing 100+ something blog posts I was like well now what do I do? I had also recorded and uploaded 50 or so videos on YouTube with links in the description to capture pages, my blog, as well as my phone number and email at the time. Again, success with these videos didn’t come overnight, it took months to start getting free traffic and free leads!

At this point I was at a stand still in a business.

My team was cranking out multiple 6 figures per year in our business and everything was good, but we just couldn’t seem to get to that next level. I was reading a blog post on branding by the founder of Empower Network David Wood, and on that post he talks about everything that I was doing at the time such as my official blog, YouTube videos, PPC, media buys and social media of course… but no matter how much content I put out or advertising dollars I spent, my income was at a stand still.

If you continue reading that post I linked to about branding by David Wood, you would know that his recommendation to take your brand to the next level was writing a book… a physical book, not an e-book or PLR garbage. He used the example of Timothy Ferriss, the author of the Four Hour Workweek and other best selling books. Think about it, the people in bookstores will never find your blog, click your ugly banner ad, or find you online. They may however, find your paperback book in Barnes and Noble and hunt you down to join your team… it’s happened for me so it can happen for you too if you take action.

So after taking a few months off from the industry, I read hundreds of books about networking, marketing, among other stuff related to our niche, I went to every seminar I could and paid the best consultants to teach me how they were making 6-7 figures per month hand over fist.

With all this new found knowledge in my head, I applied everything that I had learned. I found out which strategies worked for me personally in my business, and which ones did not. I also took into effect what was duplicating for my team, and what tactics only veteran marketers could do vs someone brand new.

joe stewart's new book
Buy My New Book!

After testing and tweaking everything for months, I had a little system in place that worked very well for me and my team. I finally sat down in 2012 and wrote my first book which tells my story and explains my whole digital real estate system called ‘Create Your Own Economy.’

This is when my brand went to a whole new level!

Radio shows started contacting me by email and phone, top network and online marketers, you name it… I was literally attracting my ideal business partners into my life each and every day.

(Check out my radio interview with Syndicated News)

I’ve hung out with the owner of Salt Life many times, been featured on quite a few radio shows and news websites as well as been invited to do book signings at bookstores and coffee shops across the USA. I don’t say all of this to brag because I still have a longgggg way to go, but I am just showing you what is possible when you take the time to build a solid brand.

Some people don’t realize that its as easy as going on and having some professional graphic design done for your Facebook and website. This is the start of building a good looking brand, without having to be a guru or expert in the industry… (yet.)

Just be sure to constantly be growing yourself. What I mean is read daily for 30 minutes or more, something positive like personal development etc. Listen to some audios by peak performance trainers inside your specific industry, so this way you have tons of knowledge and leadership to be able to offer your marketplace and your potential customers. If you can’t help your prospects get to where THEY want to go in life, they have no reason to buy anything from you… period.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about why building a brand for yourself is CRUCIAL to success.

Empower Network’s New Product High Ticket Academy

What’s in High Ticket Academy?

In video 2 of the new High Ticket Academy product, founder of Empower Network David Wood stated that he reached out to one of his mentors Cedrick Harris to learn how he sold high ticket (more expensive) products. This was somewhat a funny coincidence to me, because I literally just met Cedrick Harris like 12 hours ago and definitely picked up some golden nuggets while we were hanging out for a bit… so I can see why D Wood hit up Cedrick for advice about selling high ticket stuff.

cedrick harris
Hanging W/ Cedrick Harris

He said he was riding around in Cedrick’s car one day and while he was asking him for advice for selling high ticket stuff, Cedrick’s phone rang. After talking with this guy for a few minutes he simply said “alright man well here’s what I want you to do… go to this website, and start putting in your credit card info.” Apparently David Wood was shocked as he saw all of this happen.

Next thing you know Cedrick’s OTHER phone was ringing (because he had one cell # for a high ticket business and another cell for a business opportunity or something like that) so he put the other guy on hold so he could take this other call and close them as well lol… talk about killing two birds with one stone, eh?

But the one thing David Wood noticed about this whole thing playing out, was that Cedrick pulled out his closing journal, where he would write down notes about the words he was using or some of the objections he would get or whatever. So the one thing I got from the first few minutes of this video was to have a journal with me whenever I am selling products over the phone or Facebook chat.

Aaron Rashkin – The Master of High Ticket Sales!

aaron rashkin empower networkMoving on into the other part of High Ticket Academy, Aaron Rashkin covers the importance of simply preparing yourself to make high ticket sales. Although it takes the same amount of energy to sell a $25 product as a $5,000 product, you still have to be prepared mentally and emotionally in order to earn the trust of somebody so they will fork over that large amount of money. You literally have to condition your mind in a different way to shift over from selling cheap stuff to products for $1,000 and up.

As a high ticket closer, you have to find out what your prospects want but can’t have because of what they are currently doing, so you have a lot of questions to ask and a lot of investigating to do! So yes that means you have a lot of chatting on the phone to do… I know some of you guys hate picking up the phone because we all got spoiled with capture pages leading to sales videos and making sales on auto pilot.

“You must know more about your prospects then you know about your product! You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going!” – Aaron Rashkin

Another nugget I picked up from Aaron’s high ticket academy training was something that me and my cousin Craig used to do which is to simply be each others assistants. As you have leads coming in to your marketing system with their phone numbers, it is a good idea to have an ASSISTANT to call these leads and screen them. It puts you in a position of authority and leadership, and if you have a personal assistant who calls your leads for you and sets up an appointment for them to talk to YOU, they are much more likely to see you as the person who can get them to where they want to go… its more of a psychology thing then marketing or sales.

Imagine when you walk into a doctors office or a dentist, there is an assistant or somebody sitting at the front desk in an office, hair salon you name it! You don’t just walk in and get access to the big important doctor right away. The assistant screens you and makes sure that you actually have an appointment.

Well I can’t tell you guys EVERYTHING I learned in High Ticket Academy because that wouldn’t be fair to the people who paid hundreds of dollars for this information.

Feel free to contact me below if you need any further assistance in selling your high ticket products or you want to get in the high ticket world of affiliate marketing.

I will see you on the beaches of the world…

FaceBook Marketing Tips from Author/Affiliate Marketer Joe Stewart

Watch my video below to see how I make money by simply connecting with people on Facebook chat, and how I use Facebook statuses to peak people’s interest so they literally message me asking for the link to join my team or buy my products.

Always keep it real and be authentic on Facebook! People hate to be sold, but at the same token, people LOVE to buy! I know its hard at first because everybody thinks direct sales or affiliate marketing is all about sales or marketing, but in reality I have made 99% of my sales by simply getting to know someone and asking them questions about their family, job, what they do for fun and so on.

Once you get to know somebody without pitching them for your biz opp every 5 minutes, they somehow feel obligated to ask you what it is that you do, which now gives you the option to tell them a little bit about it and see if they are open minded to taking a look and seeing if they would be interested in doing business with you.

Enjoy folks!

MLM Functions & Affiliate Events: Waste Of $ Or Secrets Revealed? (Video Attached)

Is your upline pressuring you to go to your MLM function?

should i attend MLM events
Some Friends @ Last Event!

My first few years in MLM I was involved in the mac daddy of them all known as Amway lol… don’t you just love Amway?

My up line ‘mentor’ kept telling me the importance of buying my tickets to the big ‘function’ every 90 days but for whatever reason I never went. I always came up with excuses such as not having the money, or I had to work that weekend, but in reality I could have easily came up with the extra money and requested off work a few weeks in advance.

After quitting Amway and fumbling around in quite a few different MLM companies and affiliate offers, I finally made the decision to attend my primary MLM’s big event as well as my online affiliate companies big event.

It’s not really about the wisdom being dropped or the big ‘secret’ you expect to learn, but more so just brushing shoulders with the 6 & 7 figure income earners in your company. Sitting down for coffee or lunch with them, or even hitting the clubs and partying it up with these industry leaders is really where the golden nuggets and tips you are paying for are revealed.

The first event I went to was a big conference for a weight loss deal I was promoting. This company had just hit momentum so they packed like 15k people into the  Miami Heat Arena for their big event almost 2 years ago. I think the main thing I got out of this event was just seeing all the average, everyday people who were making a full time income in this industry. Other then that it was really just a big old hype fest lol… maybe you can relate.

“Free BMW’s for anybody who produces X amount of sales each month.”

“Free product if you sell our overpriced product to 3 of your friends each month.”

“We believe in you.”

“You can do it!”

“It’s YOUR time!”

Yeah it was the hypest weekend of my life… no wonder why that companies sales are down $90 million from last year 🙂

Moving on, me and my team got tired of the hypey free BMW’s and selling overpriced crap to 3 friends every month made it hard for me to sleep at night. So we moved on to some online business that was a lot more affordable to start and operate each month. This made it a very ‘sticky’ business model, meaning once people joined they had a hard time cancelling their monthly product subscription. When it was announced that this internet based company that went from $0 to $80 million in sales in less than 2 years was holding their quarterly event in Miami just a few hours south of me, you can bet your ass that I bought tickets for not only myself, but the 3 leaders on my team in my neighborhood.

Now this event was a lot more in depth then Hype Fest 2012… that was my name for it at least. Sure there was some hype and rah rah chants, but some people need that excitement or chill down their spine… the rest of us however were looking for an action plan, proven marketing and sales tactics, and any advice that would help us get to the next level.

What this event did differently then the little MLM party was on day 2 of the event, they split up all their leaders into different lobbies of the hotel we were at and let them teach for an hour, making it a more intimate setting they called them workshops. This gave people who attended the event the choice between their favorite leaders and who they personally wanted to learn from. Since a lot of these training workshops were happening at the same time as one another, we had to split up and each attend different workshops and share the notes that we took later on.

So should you attend your MLM company events?

At the end of the day only YOU can answer that question.

What I will say is this: if you have the money in your checking, you can get out of work or find a babysitter, then yes you should definitely attend the event! If you are still on the fence about your company or whether or not you can succeed there, attending their event will definitely either make you a firm believer in your products and company, or it might be the one last thing that puts the nail in the coffin where you decide to leave that specific company.

Either way you look at it, the highest paid network marketers all attend their events, and they are the biggest promoters of their company events. Just keep that in mind if you want to become a millionaire in MLM or affiliate marketing.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about whether or not you should go to your MLM company functions and events.

I’ll see ya at the bank!

brig hart monavie
Brig Hart and I

Hi, my names Joe Stewart. 

Since 2009 I have been involved in the whole ‘work from home’ or ‘make money online’ niche and boy what a ride it has been!

I remember just a few years ago while working in a department store, my life would change… forever! 

A young gentleman would approach me and although he spent a few minutes asking me questions about a certain pair of shoes and the sale price, I was quick to catch on that he wasn’t in my store that night looking to buy a new pair of Nike tennis shoes…

…but to invite me to an ‘opportunity meeting’ where I could learn how I could create an additional $500-$5,000 per month income working from home.

After attending that meeting and listening to the speaker, watching him like a hawk draw those circles and numbers on the whiteboard, something clicked in my brain about the possibilities with this type of business model and stream of residual income.

I envisioned myself and my team on stage collecting those big bonus checks for multiple 6 figures, sometimes million dollar bonuses!

Little did I know that the multi-level marketing industry had a massive failure rate, huge drop out rate, and that the majority of people were making less than that of a part time Burger King employee.

I realized that even though me and a few of my leaders were making ridiculous income, not everybody on our team was having much success, if any at all :(.

Sure my upline mentor told me it was their fault, they didn’t follow the system, or didn’t devote enough time… which I knew wasn’t true because I worked that system with them and they showed up to all the meetings, training sessions… you name it!

Now when you tell your upline or somebody else involved in MLM this or point out the 90%+ failure rate in the industry they just brush it off with some automated response.

Well I don’t know about them but I’m no ding bat…

I am human.

I question things.

So eventually I took some time off from the industry to look at it and kind of reevaluate everything to see what my next move would be.

I was still obviously addicted to residual income and leveraging my time, but I didn’t want to get rich on the backs of my friends and family… I wanted them to get rich too!

So after looking around the internet for close to a year, I found out about a group of men and women who were making millions upon millions of dollars by creating high quality & low cost information products that not only people in THIS industry needed, but employees, musicians, celebrities, doctors… talk about mass market appeal!

I needed to find a product that paid out more money then peddling these silly lotions, potions, vitamins, and other crap that cost so much money to manufacture and cover ingredients as well as pay the product formulators AND us hard working distributors!

I tried everything… only to come to the conclusion that no matter what company whether a binary/uni-level/matrix compensation plan… no matter what product, juice, vitamins, skincare… doesn’t matter: the average person cannot get rich in this type of business model.


After splitting money with the corporate staff, everybody in your upline, the product formulator and scientist… you are left with NOTHING!

Yes, nothing… unless selling tens of thousands of dollars worth of their product to earn a few hundred bucks commission is worth it to you, keep pushing!

On the other hand, looking back at these information based/digital products whether it be MLM training, personal development, or simply a software and service provider that has next to no manufacturing costs, a small group of employees, and high profit margins for us distributors because the products are either free to create or next to nothing!

That’s what I’m talking about!

Finally… everybody can make 6 figures with a small team of a few hundred people!

Remember traditional MLM? Haha…

‘Recruit an army of 100,000 people and you too can become a millionaire!’

No thanks! I have a better chance over here 😉

Dive right in, the waters warm!

Vemma Realizes Negative Perception of MLM: Now An ‘Affiliate Marketing’ Company… Not MLM

vemma scamI received an email the other day from an inside source I have over at Vemma.

She was explaining that a lot of brand partners were leaving and switching over to online marketing/affiliate opportunities due to the higher profit margin involved.

I told her it is definitely very difficult to make the 6-7 figure income that top Vemma leaders sell to hungry prospects with all the manufacturing costs, ingredients, and all the overhead involved in producing these energy drinks and ready to drink beverages.

A few days later I received another email from her… she stated that B.K Boreyko sent out an email to the “Vemma Elite” members with the following message below.

Vemma now Affiliate Marketing Company Instead of MLM? LMFAO…

‘The U.S Regulatory environment is the toughest it has ever been in regards to MLM/pyramid schemes. To get ahead of the impending storm, we are contemplating making some changes to our terminology as well as our compensation plan. We don’t feel that these suggested changes will affect our brand partners activities too much. But the changes will clearly put us in a favorable light with regulators. We plan to discuss these in the Bahamas with our leaders. The general outline is below, I realize that we cannot have one shoe fit all markets, but this outline can get everyone thinking. We will need to make adjustments based on rules in other markets. Our goal would be to launch these changes in January of 2014, if possible.

  1. Our vision is to be like Amazon with their affiliate program. In the future, all Vemma brand partners will be called ‘affiliates’. We will not use the word enroll or recruit. Instead we will accurately describe what we do which is we “sell” products to people. The fast start bonus will be renamed the “New Customer Bonus”. We will eliminate all packages to join over $500 and rename the pack the “Affiliate Product Pack”. Instead of network marketing, we will refer to our business model as ‘affiliate marketing’.
  2. Every person that signs up in Vemma will be signed up as a customer, unless they buy an affiliate builder pack. If they buy the pack, they will be signed up as an affiliate or “brand partner” as they used to call it.
  3. There are two ways to become an affiliate (i) buy an affiliate builder pack or (ii) if you are a customer, you enroll another customer or sell an affiliate builder pack to a new person.
  4. Currently, we have reduced CV for customers. This was to help fund the three for free customer program. We are going to raise the customer CV to 60, the same as for affiliates (brand partners). Currently, we don’t pay a fast start on customers. With the increase in CV, we will now pay a “New Customer Bonus” which is the equivalent of the old fast start. This way, Affiliate’s get paid the same whether the person is an Affiliate or a customer.
  5. During the sign up process, we will have one button that says “Buy Now”. If you buy an Affiliate Builder Pack, a screen will pop up congratulating them as an Affiliate and ask them to agree to the policies and procedures.
  6. If a customer enrolls someone, they will become an Affiliate and asked to agree to the policies and procedures during the enrollment process.
  7. An Affiliate can qualify his or her position by enrolling a customer or other Affiliate on his or her left and right. The reason this works is because points are the same.
  8. There is no requirement to be on autoship (although you will need to sign up to get your free if you do three for free).
  9. There is no requirement to purchase product to earn an income. You can qualify for commissions by simply doing the three for free customer program.

I hope you have enjoyed this brief update about Vemma switching their business model over from traditional multi-level marketing…

…to now an ‘affiliate’ marketing company, like Amazon or Empower Network.

BREAKING NEWS: YouTube Comedian/Rap Artist Steven Jo Joins Wake Up Now!

Hey what’s going on readers!

You got Joe Stewart here, Author of Create Your Own Economy (as you can clearly see above.)

Just wanted to shout out and say HEY to ya! Quick update in the MLM/YouTube celebrity industry:

I was just scrolling down my Facebook news feed like any normal Facebook addict, and I noticed that one of my favorite YouTube comedians and rap artists, a young guy by the name of Steven Jo has moved up to New York and decided to pursue the work from home opportunity that is called Wake Up Now.

You can “Like” Steven Jo on Facebook here to stay up to date on his music career, pranks and new network marketing ventures.

steven jo joins wake up nowSteven Jo Joins WAKE UP NOW

Soulja Boi, other rap artists, and even some celebrities have recently joined the company as well… I guess they are running out of money from the rap game or want to earn TRUE residual income through an affiliate marketing opportunity like Wake Up Now.

This is all just a really funny coincidence that Steven Jo joined this Wake Up Now biz opp, because somebody that I used to do business with a few months ago actually pitched me for the company last night… Lol

So I went on to tell him I wasn’t interested because I was already focused on my current affiliate marketing opportunity and building the USA Association brand with Brig Hart, a cause that I am very passionate about… no hard feelings!

Just wanted to kinda update everybody and let you know about this shocking news! I was really surprised that Steven Jo joined Wake Up Now myself… it seemed as though he was 100% focused on his music career, pranks and comedy stints he produces and uploads to YouTube, just like I am 100% focused on my company and promoting my book.

(Subscribe to Steven Jo’s YouTube Channel by clicking here)

After speaking with Steven Jo late last night, he was very proud to announce he has already hit a rank in the company called Founder 3 and is only a few people shy from hitting Founder 4, meaning the company is going to be paying him $2500 every month and it only goes up from there! If you would like to join StevenJo’s team and start making a lot of money, email him at and get started on building your future with him today!!!

But there are points in your life where you hit a fork in the road.

Should you take the opportunity someone has offered you and run hard with it…

…or let it slip right beneath your fingertips leaving it available to the billions of people on planet earth.

I am wishing Steven Jo much success in his new journey in network marketing. He has teamed with his enroller Miguel Matias and Darren Fryer, who is only 21 years old and is making $14,000 a month with this company. Not only has he partnered up with some great leaders in the business but he also has a huge following, can make people laugh… and obviously already knows how to market hence the “huge following”. I’m expecting to see big things from Steven Jo and can’t wait to see where he’s at with this company 6 months from now.

This is great news for the network marketing and direct sales industry! It shows that more and more celebrities, musicians, sports stars… you name it, are aligning themselves with the best network marketing opportunity that is presented with them.

I hope you have enjoyed this post about the breaking news that Steven Jo has OFFICIALLY joined Wake Up Now!

Did Your MLM Upline LIE TO YOU Too!? (SHOCKING Truths Revealed!)

Have you ever sat there and wondered to yourself if what your MLM up line was teaching you, could possibly be totally wrong, and ass backwards?

You are probably asking yourself:

“Is there an easier, faster, more realistic way to build my new home based business, or do I truly have to “grind it out” and “lay a solid foundation” for 2-5 years in order to build a nice future?”

That is a great question and I’m glad that you are open minded enough to actually go on the internet and search for the answer, because as we all know most network marketers are pretty brainwashed by their mentor or the top income earner in their primary opportunity. So the fact that you are online today looking for a solution to your problems I’m proud of you and I applaud you!

MLM Upline Lying

So let me guess… your upline mentor in your MLM has probably been telling you to make a list of all your friends and family, call them and tell them about the new business opportunity that you have, and invite them to some hotel meeting this week so they can see a business plan. They say if you just repeat this process and work through the numbers for 2 to 5 years that you will most definitely make a very nice income, but is that the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

I call total BS.

Think of it like this… 97% of people don’t WANT a business, they want a safe secure job with a guaranteed income… they don’t realize that risky is the new safe.

So if you were to make a list of your friends and family members, we’ll say the list had 100 people to keep the math easy (I suck at math.) You can call the WHOLE entire list, tell them about the new “gold mine” that you found, tell them you guys are gonna get filthy stinking rich… and they are still gonna laugh at you and call it a pyramid scheme, PERIOD!

All you really need to do is get your message or business presentation in front of the 3% of people who have that entrepreneurial spirit. The 3% of people WHO DO realize that risky is the new safe, the 3% of people who keep their options open to making extra money.

After reading this you are probably like “WOW how come my MLM mentor never told me this stuff?”

Well my friend, it is probably because they don’t know it… and it’s not their fault. The reason 97% of entrepreneurs and network marketers fail is because their mentor is taking bad advice from his broke mentor, and spreading it around his team thinking it will help with “duplication” when in reality, they are just ruining their chances at success.

MLM Meeting? LOL
MLM Meeting? LOL

I know, I know… your mentor who joined back in 1980 built his entire business doing 1-on-1’s and hotel meetings before the internet launched. But nowadays, if you tell someone you have this new business opportunity that they must check out at the lobby of your local hotel Friday night, an immediate “negative light bulb” is going to go off where they already know its some type of MLM business, and without even knowing which company it is they will already come up with reasons as to why they can’t make it.

Maybe you have already experienced this… you found someone at your local Wal-mart, spent 10 minutes building rapport and getting to know them better, finding out that they hate their job and are looking for more out of life… but as soon as you brought up “business opportunity” or “hotel meeting” they ran to the hills right?

So how can you turn the tide around and have people approach you, who are already sold on network marketing or want to start a business for themselves? You do realize that THOUSANDS of people go on Google everyday and type in stuff like “How to work from home” or “How to join Amway, ViSalus, Your primary business etc.)

If you can really grasp this, you will finally start to sign up 1-2 people EACH and EVERYDAY into your opportunity!

You won’t have to go around Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Any mart… EVER AGAIN!

You are probably thinking Joe, this is too good to be true man… and yes, it is really good, but it’s also true.

It’s called attraction marketing.

The people you see on stage at your companies functions making 6,7 figures a year use attraction marketing. They don’t have time to chase people around Wal-Mart… people approach them.

That’s why they’re f***ing paid.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

How to Mix Affiliate Marketing & Home Business

home businessMany of us dream of being our own bosses. The lure of big checks and flexible work hours is quite attractive. However, many are afraid to venture out on their own. They fear that they do not have the capital required to get a business started or they don’t want to lose the security of their day job.

The solution could be starting a home business. The truth of the matter is that you can start your home business with no money at all. Ask yourself this, do you have a spare room or space in your house. Do you have a computer with an internet connection? Do you have a phone line? If you have these three things you have the essentials of an office from which your home business can be made.

Affiliate marketing can be a great way for you to get started in your home business. Affiliate marketing will provide you with the opportunity to sell either a product or a service. With low capital and little space you may want to concentrate on services.

Once you have made the decision, you need to evaluate your skills. What services can you offer and what skills can you bring. Many people start of with affiliate marketing programs from major search engines. If you’re good at website design, you could register your page with someone such as yahoo publisher. This way your site will get traffic with the help of the search engine Yahoo. If yours is a sales website, your traffic could translate into increased sales. The more exposure to your site the better.

The other thing you can try to do is attract traffic to other sites. Retail sites such as Amazon and EBay have affiliate marketing programs. If you can generate traffic and increase sales then you make money. Both programs offer ways to increase revenues through links and blogs. These are usually free and worth using. Remember, the more you make the more they make.

Finally, your site can make money in another way. When it is posted on sites such as yahoo publisher or Google ad sense, there will be ads placed. Whenever a visitor clicks on an ad you make money. The more clicks the more cash. The operators take care of all the advertising costs and placement. They also try to place appropriate ads to your page. If you’re selling rare books ads for fish food are not likely going to get clicked.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

My Fun Life Review: Recruitment Scam or Discount Travel?

My Fun Life Review: Recruitment Scam or Discount Travel?

myfunlifmyfunlife reviewe reviewHey there my friends thanks for stopping by the page today, most of you who are reading this are looking for a My Fun life Review. Maybe you saw a business card at Starbucks,  heck maybe your best friend tried to get you in this thing… How ever you found yourself here I just want to welcome you to my website.

So let’s get started folks!

My Fun Life was founded by Dan Edwards. On the My Fun Life website it says this about Dan;

“ His business experience encompasses over 26 years in strategic planning for direct sales organizations and corporate ownership responsibilities as President/CEO for several companies. “

Yet when you Google the guy and look for his home business experience you find nothing. Just one red flag I noticed.

Next we have the CMO Rod Goodman. Rod has been in the industry over 25 years, and actually helped set up the Black Diamond program at MonaVie. Their Chief operations Officer is Ron Pope, the official website pretty much gloated about what this guy has done over the last 17 years including.

“Most recently, Ron Pope consulted with an international online advertising company taking their Affiliate base from 36,000 to over 90,000+ Affiliates in just 5 months. “

And last but not least Matthew Edwards the chief visionary officer. Name sound familiar?

It should.

Matthew is the son of Dan, and according to the company website he earned his Boys Scouts of America recognition and started college all at the age of 14.

Matthew is now 16 and his dad decided to bring his young son into the office to see how to build a business as an investment in his future, and he also created much of the My Fun Life marketing system, lead capture pages, etc

My Fun Life Review |The Product

So what is the My Fun Life product? Travel discounts.

Yes… My Fun Life is another one of those travel discount deals that keep popping up left and right.

Except this time it run through a few companies most of you reading this have probably heard of…

TRAVELOCITY, FunCondos and FunTrips.

That’s right, through My Fun life you are now able to book low-cost flights, condo rentals, cruises, car rentals and more.

My Fun Life Review: The Compensation Plan

my fun life compensation planSo what type of compensation plan does My Fun Life have?

They have a 3 x 10 Forced Matrix totaling 88,572 positions. I highly doubt anybody will ever fill a 3×10 matrix and make the insane amount of money they promise, I mean 88k positions?

Ain’t nobody got time for that…

The only thing I did like about the 3 x 10 Forced Matrix is awesome because once you have your first three  people in, your next recruits start automatically filling in unlike a uni-level compensation where once you have your first three people you branch out and build a fourth and fifth leg.

So what are the payout on each leg?

  • Level 1 – $1 per affiliate ($3 total)
  • Level 2 – $2 per affiliate ($18 total)
  • Levels 3 to 6 – 25 cents per affiliate ($270 total)
  • Level 7 – $2 per affiliate ($4374 total)
  • Levels 8 to 10 – $1 per affiliate ($85,293 total)

My Fun Life also has a nice bonus as well

  • Bronze – recruit at least 3 paid affiliates and earn a 10% match
  • Silver – recruit at least 6 paid affiliates and earn a 20% match
  • Gold – recruit at least 10 paid affiliates and earn a 30% match
  • Sapphire – recruit at least 20 paid affiliates and earn a 40% match
  • Ruby – recruit at least 50 paid affiliates and earn a 50% match
  • Diamond – recruit at least 100 paid affiliates and earn a 50% match (also unlocks level 10 earnings in the matrix)

* Note you only get paid on levels 8,9, &10 if you have achieved those rankings. So if you sign up a powerhouse recruiter and they start filling up their matrix fast, you are only going to get paid up to level 7 unless you are a level 8 or above. *


So should you join My Fun Life?

With no retail products or services and the travel side of the business handled by third-party vendors Travelocity, Cha-Ching, FunTrips & FunCondos, My Fun Life pay out commissions solely on the recruitment of new My Fun Life affiliates and when these new recruits spend money on trips, hotel, airfare etc.

Since there is no retailable products or payment outside of recruitment commissions, the company has deteriorated itself into a recruitment scheme dependent on the constant recruitment of new reps and their paying of monthly fees to pay out commissions.

My Fun Life paid affiliate membership provides nothing more than participation in the compensation plan (the ability to earn commissions on the recruitment of others). Once the recruitment of new affiliates paying these fees stops so too do the commissions My Fun Life pay out.

I hope you have enjoyed this third party My Fun Life review!

I will see you on the beaches of the world my friends!

Empower Network Donates $10,000 to Denver Charity

The Empower Network Company Helps Denver’s Homeless Community

“If you’ve been in Denver very long, you’ll notice there’s a homeless problem,” said Empower Network COO Jerry Ballard.

Empower Network DenverWhen Empower Network came to Denver’s Bellco Theater in July for its quarterly conference, it didn’t just give a presentation. It gave a $10,000 check to help the city’s homeless community.

Empower Network presented the check to CEO Bennie Milliner of Denver’s Road Home. Denver’s Road Home is working through a 10-year plan to end homelessness in the city. Now in its seventh year of the plan, Denver’s Road Home has created 2,653 housing opportunities for the homeless, prevented 5,871 families and individuals from becoming homeless and mentored 1,058 families and seniors out of homelessness.

Denver’s homeless problem is a major issue in the city. There are more than 11,000 homeless men, women and children in the metro Denver area. Of those, nearly 1,000 are living unsheltered on the streets, under bridges or in public buildings.

Empower Network co-founders David Wood and David Sharpe are no strangers to homelessness. Years ago and at different times in their lives, they were each homeless. Today, after putting their collective talents to work and enjoying a real-life rags-to-riches American dream, they run a $60 million company and want to give back.

“If you’ve been in Denver very long, you’ll notice there’s a homeless problem,” said Empower Network COO Jerry Ballard. “It wouldn’t be Empower Network’s style to not do something about that, and give back to the community that served us.”

The Empower Network team has a track record of supporting worthy causes, especially those benefiting people and families in need.

Prior to this donation, Empower Network raised $66,000 for Austin, Texas’ Habitat for Humanity and more than $30,000 for the American Red Cross in support of the Boston Marathon Bombing victims.

This most recent donation to Denver’s Road Home will help the organization feed, clothe and house homeless residents. Denver’s Road Home is the local affiliate of 100,000 Homes, a national movement of 205 communities working together to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the country’s most vulnerable homeless individuals and families by July 2014.

Empower Network is a new national sponsor of 100,000 Homes.

About Empower Network 

Empower Network hosts one of the largest blogging communities and publishing platforms online in addition to providing educational training products and services to online marketers and start-up, home-based and small businesses. Empower Network offers a program through which affiliates can earn commissions off the sales of Empower Network products. Headquartered in St. Petersburg, Fla., David Wood and David Sharpe founded Empower Network in 2011 to empower small-business owners to make money online without dealing with the technical, marketing, payroll and overhead challenges that frustrate many entrepreneurs and small-business owners. Empower Network’s signature product is a viral blogging system geared toward helping its 30,000 affiliates and 70,000 members use the Internet to grow their businesses online, taking them from disenfranchisement to full self-empowerment through the use of blogs, direct sales and online marketing.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

Wake Up Now Review: Is There a Wake Up Now SCAM You Should Watch Out For?

Wake Up Now Review

wake up now reviewIf you have found yourself here then there is a good chance you are looking for more information about the direct sales company Wake Up Now that is currently one of the fastest growing companies in our industry based on data from

So what is Wake Up Now? Is it a scam? And most importantly can you make money with WUN?

The CEO and founder of Wake Up Now is Troy Muhlestein, a “veteran” marketer.

The reason I put the ” ” over veteran is because When you search Google for information about this individual, you won’t find anything negative. The problem is, you won’t find a great deal of information at all. Which threw up a huge red flag for me. Previous success in MLM is one of the best indicators of future success and a good leader. But If there is barely any information about Mr. Muhlestein having previous MLM experience how do you know he is a “veteran” like he claims to be?

If you are familiar with this company, please comment below to share what you know.

Wake Up Now Review – The Products

wake up now products

The Wake Up Now products are very interesting to say the least.

From financial software, to online shopping, to even their own travel club, they certainly look like products you might use for yourself or for your family. With the Wake Up Now HUB program, what you are paying for is a monthly subscription to their services.

With this subscription you have permission to buy certain through their “club.”

This may be a terrific deal, but it is kind of hard to sell unless you actually join and use the service. There are certain companies out there with these discount savings clubs, or vacation discount certificates, and when it comes time for you to actually shop, you end up spending more money on these products that you normally would because you have to pay between $25 and $100 per month to become a member of Wake Up Now.


Now lets dissect the Wake Up Now Compensation plan.

Most of the money in the comp plan is tied to building a team of members who have all purchased a subscription plan under you or one of your team members.

According to company documents, around 60% of revenue is paid back out to the field reps.

This is certainly a fair percentage to say the least. I know a few companies where you are lucky to get 30% of revenue back out to the field reps, so 60% is more than generous in my opinion.

The key to your success in Wake Up Now is being able to build a team, and helping the people you bring in build a team as well.

With the way the compensation plan is designed, I believe with a team of 12 you are earning around $600 a month which really isn’t bad, unless you cannot recruit 12 then you may be faced with quite a problem.

Wake Up Now Review – Can You Earn an Honest Living?

So can you have success in Wake Up Now? Of course you can! You can have success in anything you do, the real question is will you continue to pursue Wake Up Now after all your friends and family has told you no?

Most people only talk to their friends and family about home business and once they hear no twenty times they get made, discouraged as usually end up quitting.

But what if I told you there was a way to get qualified leads to call you? People who are already interested in Wake Up Now and ready to join your team.

Odds are it would help you grow your business to new levels, am I right?

Of course it would! I know I’d rather have 5-10 people calling me a day asking about my business compared to me chasing people down seeing if they are interested in making money from home. Because odds are they probably are not.

So look friends if your are ready to start having qualified people call you about WUN, with credit card in hand ready to join, give me a call and let me, help you dominate Wake Up Now and have you earning that $600 every week!

Promoting Your Site and Services with an Email Marketing Campaign

Promoting Your Site and Services with an Email Marketing Campaign

marketing campaignEven if you absolutely hate marketing, it is still an essential part of running a successful business, both online and off.

No matter how great your website is or how high the quality and value of your products and services are, you will never make a dime if people do not know you exist. Building a site or opening a store is not enough. It is just the first step of the process. The much longer and constantly ongoing part of the process is getting customers to walk through the door or drawing traffic to your website. The only way to do this is through marketing.

Things To Do Before Setting up a Marketing Campaign

Every successful marketing campaign will require you to have your business well established. For an online business, at a minimum you need a well designed website that is fully functional. You can create this easily using WordPress premium themes or build your own from scratch if you want complete control over the design. If your business has a physical presence in addition to an online one, you want to make sure everything is set up properly in that respect as well. Only then are you ready to set up a marketing campaign.

What Type of Campaign Is Best?

There is no single answer to this question. The type of marketing strategies you use should take into account all the relevant factors, such as the budget, business niche, size of customer base, and so on. You also don’t have to focus solely on one marketing strategy. It is never a good idea to put all your energy into a single aspect of your business, and marketing is no exception. Having a diverse marketing approach may be the best strategy.

Using an Email Marketing Campaign

Email marketing is best for businesses that already have a large base of customers. The first step is to actually get a list of your existing customers’ email addresses, which will allow you to distribute them emails and newsletters with promotions and information. You may also want to target a potential audience by getting access to a list of possible customers. The idea is to segment your customer base into similar groups, and create marketing emails that are targeted to their specific needs. A focused and narrowly tailored approach is best, because then your customers will not feel like you are scamming them.
