Why You Should Attend Meetings

Hello There, VivBounty here with some reasons why you should attend meetings for your program or business.

Meetings are professional training to provide you with the tools of your trade just the same as a bricks and mortar business.

Meetings announce new additions to your business or program such as an additional way to earn with your program or help with advertising.

Meetings advise of new policies and procedures. In one business introducing six new referrals used to mean automatic placement in a matrix where cash is earned when filled. This changed to being placed in another matrix, one additional step, but one that fills faster than the first one, earns income while it builds, then feeds into the original ultimately earning in both matrices, meaning more profit, but you would never understand that if you didn’t attend the meeting.

Meetings tell you when online payment processors change their policies, affecting your ability to pay, be paid or lose your money altogether. One payment processor this past year lost its bank account thereby disabling it to process credit cards. In previous years others have come and gone, often with any money you have in accounts with them. Program administrators often have inside information of impending disaster that you would get at the meeting and possibly be able to protect yourself.

Meetings inform you of bonuses, incentives and competitions for referrals or sales. In my primary program, F5M Millionaires Club, we have had contests that gave prizes like business cards, silver coin and gold coin. We all know that the value of gold is currently at a record high. This week the bonus for attending the meeting was 10,000 hits to our referral site at a high response advertising source. Lead Generating Tools had an LGT Traffic surf party this weekend rewarding us with extra banner and text ad impressions for surfing.

The important thing about these nuggets is you then have to use them. Showing up just to get the bonus and then doing nothing with the tool or the training is unwise at best and just plain dumb at worst, not to mention the extra work you make for the support team when you e-mail questions covered in the meetings. You may find yourself being ignored just as you ignore the efforts they make to assist and teach you.

It is your responsibility as an Internet marketer to get to know your business, educating yourself about all facets of working this business, and doing your part to make use of all the training and tools provided. Any business requires you to show up and run it. Contrary to all the hype you read on the Internet, no business runs itself. There is no free ride, but I can show you where you can learn to do it right with lots of help. At Lead Generating Tools, our policy is learn or get burned.

Until next time, remember meetings and training mean the difference between your failure and success.

What Is The Busiest Advertising Season?

Hi There. VivBounty here with the question for you. Are you ready for the busiest advertising season?

In Internet Marketing, traditionally summer is the slowest period for advertising. Labour Day weekend is the last long weekend of the summer in North America. On Tuesday the students go back to school, the new season begins for your favourite television programs, and thus begins the most responsive advertising period for Internet Marketers. Will you be a couch potato or will you get back to advertising your online business?

I have taken the time during the "summer slump" to learn new things and sharpen my marketing skills so that I am prepared for this responsive season. We have kept up with our training in the LGT Training room throughout the summer. Our new jazzed up, interactive, marketing dashboard, with all it's viral traffic enhancers launched this spring and we have been very busy learning how to capitalize on all the wonderful tools at our disposal to explode our traffic building a network of like-minded marketers to support, encourage and promote each other. The new script really is your one-stop source for all your Affiliate Marketing Tools, Services, Money Making Resources, with Live Training Workshops all in one place.

In my last post, I wrote about our training on Word Press blogs. As a follow up to that our next training will be on Article Marketing to tie into blogging, honing our writing skills to make our blogs search engine friendly, enjoyable to read, provide quality information, creating interest in our personal unique brand to drive traffic to our online business and affiliate programs.

Whatever business brought each of us to Lead Generating Tools, for me it is F5M Millionaires Club and it's one-of-a-kind Wealth System, LGT has become an integral part of my marketing arsenal. Here there is ongoing training. As an Internet Marketer, I gather fresh, real time leads to market my programs bolstered by all the resources at my disposal as a member of LGT. I promote the lead capture pages I create using image and html editors to personalize, optimize and brand myself from my very own domain. I give away free marketing tools, services, and e-books like my free Millionaires Report, in exchange for a name and an e-mail address, known as a fresh real-time lead. Waaay better than the duds you often get by purchasing leads.

My autoresponders are easy to set up so I have one for each campaign, with it's own messages, lead capture page, tracking links and free resources so that I can monitor where my most effective advertising response comes from, which pages, images and slogans are working best, ultimately leading to my primary program. The best part about having autoresponders is that I can share with those joining me in F5M Millionaires Club the same free tools and resources from LGT that I use to optimize my advertising, thus giving them an edge in the marketplace.

Traffic is paramount, whether you are selling your own products or an affiliate marketer. You need to make your advertising stand out from the rest. Having fresh leads is crucial to any business. You need a continuous stream of potential customers. If you are marketing affiliate pages which look the same as everyone else's, make sure you have a regular, steady advertising schedule, particularly if you are using free advertising as your competition will be stiff! If you are using paid ad sites, make sure you test, and spend wisely by tracking response to your campaigns. If you are not getting results, go somewhere else. Just keep advertising, and never quit. The only way you can fail is if you quit.

Until next time, don’t sit back and let this momentum pass you by. Get back in the saddle and get in the race.

Prosperous Blessings,
