Recruit Much?: Know Your Downline

Have you ever joined a program and after you have invested your money and your sponsor receives the payment you never hear anything back? Ugh! I hate that too. Your downline is super duper important, especially if you are selling an internet service or e-book. 

A downline "refers to the members you have recruited or who have joined the program after you did and whose sales or referrals also generate income for you" and is used generally in internet marketing and multi-level marketing (MLM). Not only is the quality of the product or service that you are selling important -- the quality of the human talent that is helping you sell the product is important as well.

When you post your ads on those social networks, often you see people using the words "highly-motivated", "self-motivated", "success-driven", etc. These words are not used just because they make us look like we are working hard. These are the actual factors that people must have to be successful in the online marketing world. There are many people that think that they possess these qualities, but when put to the test they may fail in some areas. That is okay, though! Not everyone is born with a natural talent for this industry. This is why it is important to train, support, and cultivate this human talent to grow your downline network and help them to achieve their financial and life goals.

To help your downline achieve their goals, there are some things that you need to consider about yourself in terms of your leadership. 


Are you willing to listen to the needs, ambitions, and goals of the people in your downline? Are you dedicating enough individual attention to assist them with individual scenarios? Are you actively involved in developing your downline and giving unique and honest opinions?

If you answered no to any of these questions, then your downline may be struggling in their development. Honesty is one of the most important things that you will ever be able to give a person that is trying to make it in this industry. Those that are making six-figures are not doing so because someone lied to them about how awesome they were doing and not giving them suggestions and advice along the way. 

Trial and error is a very good strategy to teach your downline because in the end you do not want to be a babysitter. You want each and every person in your downline to grow and develop into a leader this way that they can also be successful. Different personality types excel in different modes of advertising, marketing, and sales so allow and individual to discover this on their own. Just make sure that the tools are available to them to help them do the digging.

That is all I have for you guys today! Thanks so much for reading and stop by to see us again!

Scam Review: SlicethePie


What is SlicethePie?
Slice the pie is one of those websites that are almost a myth for those of us that like to work at home. When I first heard about it, I really did not give it a second thought. As I was doing a little bit more research on methods to earn money from home, the website started to pop up more and more, so I thought "Why not? Let's try it!" 

So the main purpose of the website it to rate and review different types of music from hip hop and R&B to easy listening, and even punk and ska. When you first sign up to the website, you get to choose the different genres that you would like to review. For me, this worked only for a few days before music started to seep in from genres that I do not like and do not really care for. A lot of these songs I skip (which you can do), but after a while you just want to go ahead and suck it up.Write the review and make the money from it.

How Does It Work?
To review the song, you are required to listen to at least 90 seconds of the song before you can submit your review. Some people think that this is a long time, but if you are familiar with music and you really think about it, you need at least that amount of time to really listen through all of the elements in a song.

The amount that you are paid per review is dependent on the length of your review and the quality of that review to use musical terms. The reviews are not read by actual people, but through a computer algorithm that measures your review by the use of key words. This makes the system extremely fallible and many people get errors like "the system has seen this review before" or "your review does not match your rating". Though this is frustrating, you will quickly learn how to write reviews to prevent these errors.


How Do I Get Paid?
SlicethePie uses PayPal as their payment processor. You are paid a certain amount of cents per song (usually between 0.05-0.25) and you are able to cash out at a minimum of $10. It normally takes about 3-5 business days to be delivered to your account. In the 2 weeks that I have used this, I have been able to cash out once and the funds were delivered right on time. I have read some reviews of people having their account blocked for not having "constructive reviews" but I have not found that to be a problem thus far.

So Is It A Scam?
From the experience that I have had with the company, I would say that this is NOT a scam. There are other reviews out there that claim the company would be a scam, but due to a problem where people have had their accounts terminated due to a a breach of TOS when they reach the $10 mark. Like I stated previously, I have not had a particular problem with cashing out with this company, but of course everyone may have a different experience depending on their use.

How Do I Sign Up?
You can sign up by visiting SlicethePie. It is 100% free for you to join and make money, so you do not have to pay or invest anything to use this website. Be sure that you sign up with your PayPal email address this way you can get paid seamlessly once you start reviewing music!

How to Blog: Find a buddy!

Many of the posts that internet marketers are putting up these days are about the importance of an active blog. Blogging itself can be a simple endeavor, especially if you decide to use some of the free blogging platforms that makes it easy to style and post content to your blog. When you are first starting in this endeavor, it can be quite the lonely task. The thing that I recently found out about is the "blog buddy" system.

A "blog buddy" is just like someone that you bring with you to the gym. This person will help to keep you motivated and on track with the content of your blog. Not only do they keep you company, but they are also there to give you a different perspective on the topics that you are blogging about. They can also provide someone that can relate to what you are doing. Not everyone that is in internet marketing will be blogging, so this person (if they are not into internet marketing or ecommerce) will be able to lend you their expertise in the blogosphere.


When you are selecting another blogger that you would like to buddy with, find someone that is roughly at your writing level.  It can be a little difficult to critique writing if it is a style that you are not used to. If you write in a very technical sense, you want to find someone that does the same. Technical writing can be hard to understand sometimes, especially if your blog buddy is not familiar with the common jargon that is used in your field or topic. I found that ProBlogger has stated it best when it comes to the process of finding a blog buddy. You can read all about it here on ProBlogger.


When you have found that perfect person that you would like to work on your blog with, you want to make sure that you keep the relationship open. You are both HUMAN, so if you are writing about controversial topics remember that everyone will have an opinion. Try to also make the relationship mutually beneficial. Comment, critique and assist your buddy as they are helping you. The give-and-take relationship makes sure that both parties contribute and have everyone come out on top.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, finding a blog buddy will help you to expand your networks. You can think of this as a large party and you get to meet your friends-friends and vice versa. Since not everyone will be writing about or selling the same thing, networking is extremely important. You have the opportunity to introduce friends to your buddy and they will have the chance to introduce their friends to you. You will also be able to link other interesting works and similar topics in these comments so that everyone will have a chance to grow and learn.

How To: Market Using Forums

How To Successfully Use Forum Marketing

There are very many ways to market your online business. Are you using the same old conventional methods, or are you branching out into unfamiliar territory to make your business stand out from the crowd?

Firstly, forum marketing is the use of public or private forums to share your expertise and answer questions that other members (consumers or other marketers) have. The ultimate goal of using forums to market business is to build an online reputation and establish trust in other members to the point that they want to do business with you. Forum marketing is popular among marketers that are just beginning online because the only investment required is time.

Do Your Research


First, you will want to find a forum that will fit your needs. There are many forums out there and you just have to do a little bit of snooping to find a community that surrounds your niche. If you are unsure of what your niche is, take a look at the consumers that you are primarily marketing to and narrow it down from there. For example, if you are selling exotic destinations, then you want to find travel-related forums. On most forums, spammers (people that just post about their opportunity willy-nilly with no respect for the actual topics of the forum) are quickly dismissed and the posts go largely unread. Most people that join forums want to get solid information, not sales material. Do not be easily offended by people that are a little bit more aggressive. All in all, everyone just wants to be educated.


The easiest way to get a feel of a forum is to lurk in some of the threads. Do not start posting right away. Forums that are more tight-knit with many members that are familiar with each other tend to be wary of newcomers. Spend some time reading the threads in the forum to get a sense of the community’s culture and norms. Figure out the users who are especially influential and learn which topics draw the most attention. Educating yourself and learning the information will help you fit in more quickly.


Introduce Yourself and Create A Profile


Once you have found the place you want to be, introduce yourself to the forum. Most websites encourage new members to introduce themselves by making an introductory post. In this area, you will want to include a brief description of yourself, a description of your expertise, and an explanation of why you had joined the forum. Here, you want to sell yourself, not your product just yet. You want to show everyone that you are a real person, not just a spammer trying to bring attention to a product.


You will also want to create a compelling profile –one that provides a good description of your expertise and experience as well as a little bit of your personal information. You will want to add information like your favorite sports team, how much you love your family and pets, or your hometown. This information will humanize your profile and make great icebreakers so other members will want to get to know you. When picking a username and avatar, I recommend using your name or what people can closely identify with your brand. Try to stay away from usernames that are hard to pronounce or only have meaning to you. The avatars are the small pictures that are attached to all of your posts. A good head shot of yourself or your family is usually the best option for the avatar. Avoid pictures that might be obscene or offensive.


Successfully Marketing


The key to successful marketing on forums is to make valuable contributions to the community. If you really are an expert in an area, answer members’ questions that are related to what you know. Give them useful answers and demonstrate what you have said you know and eventually people will start to believe that you are an expert in your area. If people are still skeptical of what you might know, give links to trusted sources of information and respond quickly to any follow up questions that might be presented. Try not to get drawn into arguments and avoid the drama. Remember, you are part of the forum to build your business. If any unwanted contention does exist, the forum administrator does reserve the right to ban members from further use of the website.

Once you have built up your reputation on the forum of your choice, you can them start marketing campaigns that are a little bit more aggressive. Members will tend to believe you more when you have established yourself in a community and newbies may turn to you for advice or offer to be part of your down line if they find you to be an effective leader.

You will also want to make sure that you include links to your business/blog/website in your signature. This will allow people to do a little bit of research while you are offline to make the decision whether they want to work with you or not.
