Let’s face it, in these times the talk is tough, people all over the nation are out of work, the media talks day and night about how bad the economy is & maybe it’s not good but somebody out there is making good money because everywhere you turn, the stadiums are full, parking lots at entertainment events are FULL to capacity, restaurants are packed, plates are full and lots of food left on the plate at that at an empty table. Now, you are here more than likely because you need MORE. How much more do you need? I will keep it simple, what could $1000 extra do for you per month? For as little as 10 hours a week effort, you could be making AT LEAST that and more with what I have been doing for nearly a decade. The real deal opportuntiy awaits… For more information click here – fill out the form and get the details. See you on the other side.
One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see 95% of network marketers make is how they handle summers and the winter holiday period. And if you are doing this, it will KILL your business.
It is no secret that during the summer months and the Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years holidays, that the network marketing business has a tendency to slow down some. Most businesses do.
People go on vacation and there is a natural tendency to be more slack, take time off, be less active, buy less, etc.
But as a network marketer if you get lulled into this vacation cycle mentality for working YOUR business, you will NEVER, EVER have success in this industry.
Let me show you why, by demonstrating a typical network marketers work habits:
JOE Network Marketer comes into the summer months and mentally decides everyone is on vacation (Not true! No one gets a 3 month vacation from their job except teachers and they usually work a second job) and so he tells himself he is going to take the summer off as Ill. So right off the bat, that is 3 months out of the year he is not working!
Then around the middle of September, after the kids are back in school, he decides it is finally time to get back in action because EVERYONE is now back from vacation. (Again not true, but an easy way to mentally justify why he took the summer off).
So he starts back to work with a flurry, gets in the groove, prospecting, promoting, retailing product, etc.
The ONLY problem is it takes a couple of months to fill up the pipeline with prospects, get back in the swing of things and get the momentum going.
Ill by the time he does that, guess what? It’s the middle of November. And you know what that means, right?
Thanksgiving is coming and Christmas is right around the corner, and then New Years don’t you know.
I mean who works doing the holidays? What’s the point? Might as well wait until they are over. And besides there are so many good football games on. So before he realizes it, it is the middle of January and 2 more months have gone down the drain. And then the cycle starts all over AGAIN.
It takes another 2 months to get back in the groove. So it’s the middle of March, before he really gets humming.
He now has everything in place to REALLY start building for the next 2 good months – April and May! And boy does he.
BUT DARN IT ALL!!! It’s summer again. So he HAS to take summer off because EVERYONE is on vacation, right?
WRONG!!! Point blank – I am going to give it to you straight. This is the DUMBEST way in the world to build a network marketing business. Yet this is the cycle that most network marketers get lulled into. I see it happen every year. And it is probably one of the BIGGEST reasons why so many fail.
This example brings up two issues you have to address in your business. First, lack of discipline. Most people have never learned to discipline themselves to work for themselves. So they have a tendency to mentally give themselves all sorts of reasons and excuses why they should take time off. And let me tell you it is so easy to do.
Think about this, “If you had an employee who worked for you, the way you work your network marketing business, would you keep them or fire them?” Tough question, but the answer tells all. And if you don’t discipline yourself, who will? It’s not going to be your boss. He likes that fact that you work for him. If you want to be self-employed and make big checks, you have to learn to control your work habits.
If you want to achieve success in network marketing, you must discipline yourself to CONSISTENTLY work your business.
CONSISTENCY is the BIGGEST factor to your success in network marketing. More than talent or brains.
Second issue you need to address is: Incorrect thinking. Everyone is NOT on vacation.
Yes business does slow a little. But guess what? There are so many OTHER people who take this VACATION mentality; there is less competition in the marketplace. But more importantly… if you take the vacation attitude and slack off during the Summer and the Winter Holidays, guess what happens? You miss the 2 HOTTEST times of the year in network marketing.
When are they?
Mid-January to mid-April, and then mid-September to mid-November.
And if you don’t spend the summer and winter holidays actively working the business, filling that funnel with prospects, when the hot periods HIT, you will have nothing in the pipeline.
And instead of reaping the harvest, you will be spending HOT periods trying to plant seeds. You will be missing the most productive times of year, because you slacked off during slower times.
You will NEVER, EVER be able to create momentum in your business if you fall into this vacation mentality trap.
Use the slower times to be planting seeds, consistently filling that pipeline. NEVER letting it get empty or stagnant.
There is a time to sow and there is a time to reap.
By knowing the cycles of network marketing throughout the year, you can strategically put yourself in place to take maximum advantage of them.
There are definitely times to take personal or family vacations and mini breaks. But there is no way you can continually take extended VACATIONS from building your network marketing business, and expect to have success. It is just not going to happen.
Don’t cheat yourself out of the BEST, by not disciplining yourself and consistently working during the slower times of the year, so you can take MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE of the HARVEST times.
If you apply this one principle to your network marketing business, you will NOT believe the difference it can make in your income after one year.

Today’s technology makes it even easier to reach more people per hour than ever before. It’s because of technology that some nearly 10 years ago I found a business opportunity in an email that would allow me to work from home, even outside the Unites States which has enabled me to earn 6 figures annually over the duration of my tenure with the same organization since 2002. When I got started in the day, the type of advertising mostly used was buying email list in bulk from reputable sources. After purchase you would then load them into your auto-responder email series provided by the organization and the masses would receive a series of emails about your specific business opportunity until they opted out or until they made a purchase. It worked very well. Ezine ads were also popular, affordable and worked but the downside was you never knew which ezine ad would pull good results so in a sense it was just like advertising in a newspaper without ever having a guarantee for your advertising dollars. Then came lead purchasing & is widely used today. The advantage here is that you get a guarantee per dollar spent on advertising. Depending on how qualified the lead was (depending on how it’s generated & whether they are desiring specific info on your opportunity) would depend on the price of each lead. Leads can be purchased from just below a dollar per lead & up to nearly $15 each. Your job is to make sure they are in your marketing system getting the email series of information personalized with all your contact information as well as making contact with them assisting the potential client along with the information gathering process coming to a point of decision. In return if it’s a YES, in my case that would be at least $1000 and as high as $9700. That’s a pretty big BANG for your effort wouldn’t you say?
With all that being said, Now–today–there are tools and technology that allow you to reach 100 people in 1 hour. Imagine leaving 70 voice mails, talking to 20 different people looking for what you have and sending out 100 emails in 1 hour. INCREDIBLE POWER! Now back in 2002, all that would take me at least 6 hours if not more. Let’s take it a step further – Imagine reaching 50 people a day, sending out 300 situational emails and leaving over 200 voice mails all in 3 hours – certainly less than 4. You see – you really can be earning a FULL TIME income at a part-time effort especially if you are making $1000-$9700 EVERY TIME someone says YES! You can be in control of your financial destiny with technology & the right opportunity => this may be the one JUST for you!
Wasting Time with Your Home Business? Well I can certainly tell you if you found a business that you felt was right for you but came in with the following mindset:
1. I am going to give this a try to see what happens…
2. I will give this 90 days
3. I hope this is going to work
4. I hope this isn’t a scam (most home businesses aren’t by the way)
STOP NOW!!! YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME! You will never see much if anything. Until you realize that the reality is that you REALLY aren’t commited, you will always be wasting your time. Commit, GET SERIOUS about your business and then you can be certain you will be investing your time wisely into your business and the results you desire will come.
If you find yourself in search for a way to earn extra money from home or to even replace a former income and are looking for a home business to do that for you, here are some simple pointers to help you with your search.
1. Don’t focus on the upfront cost or investment – This should never be your ultimate concern.
2. Focus on the individual opportunity – is this something that will pay you well for your effort.
3. Is this something you can get excited about?
4. How long has the company or organization been around?
5. Know your WHY – why are you desiring a home business?
6. Look through the information as soon as you can that was given to you by a company rep.
7. Look at one business opportunity at a time.
These 7 simple steps will help you find what you are looking for…GOOD LUCK!
When deciding that you are ready to start your online travel business with Coastal Travel what is important is that you aren’t coming in with a mindset of ..”let’s give this a try…” attitude. From my almost 10 years of experience here, the most successful are those that come in, know they want it, excited they found it (where can you find a fun business that offers wholesale pricing on travel and at same time HIGH commissions of $1000-$9700 every time) and know they are in it for long term. Also what is interesting is that the ones who invest the most are the ones that seem to succeed at another level (100k+ a year). Why would anyone want to pass up earning 10k a sale for doing the same thing as one earning 1k. If you come in treating this like a “NEW BUSINESS” you will get the results you are looking for. This truly is a MILLION DOLLAR earning annual business – let’s get you started today! I can’t wait to meet you! ~Eric Dye
