Today more than ever the part time entrepreneur needs to uncover ways to attract quality targeted leads in a minimum amount of time. It’s tough to come home from work or school, have dinner, and get some work done between demands of time with the family, distractions, unanticipated phone calls, you name it. The evening hours slip away so fast, it takes discipline, time management, and efficiency to find an hour or two in your day for doing focused, productive activity and move your business forward.
Facebook is one tool if utilized to its full potential, that will allow you to make enough contacts and build quality business relationships in minutes. The Secret is consistent daily activity that will fill your pipe line over time. You can manage a home business along with a full time job and family obligations, until you have grown enough to scale down or eliminate your full time job, and experience the Legacy Income and Time Freedom that so many are dreaming about.
Like baking Grandma’s perfect apple pie, there is a recipe to follow. Alter the recipe and you will have a different product, stay with a proven recipe and your pies will be sought after and talked about, duplicated and passed on for generations!
Part of that recipe is getting education that will allow you to succeed in the least amount of time, with the least amount of effort. Like Granny’s apple pie, you need to learn the skills that will duplicate, and build your Legacy even while you sleep! Time is the most valuable commodity you possess, time to watch your children grow, time to exercise, time to build and enjoy your dreams…
For example, simple math will tell you how many active members you will need in your business to earn a specific amount of residual income. It’s an easy matter to take the average commission paid, and divide it into your goal income to see where you stand compared to other compensation plans. Why would you want to work five or even ten times harder then you need to?
The truth shows that most people do not understand compensation plans enough to be sure how much they are earning. Companies make them difficult to understand for this very reason, hiding the bottom line in terminology they hope no one will take the time to decipher. A good majority of the compensation plans are designed to profit the company and upper level affiliates while the part timer gets the scraps.
Another trap to watch out for exists in the policies and procedures of 98% of all the existing companies in Network Marketing. Gotcha clauses that give the company an unfair advantage on how they can control, or even take away your business and hard earned income, overnight.
Clauses like “Ongoing Training and Support” mean you can never retire. Renewable yearly memberships can be conveniently not renewed for what ever reason. You stand no chance in court because your checked the box in agreement with the companies Policies & Procedures.
A good question to ask is “How many pages are in the Company Contract?” The more pages, the better chance your company is building a pile of leverage against you, most definitely not in your favor! The majority of excited associates don’t even bother to take the time to do an in depth review of their company policies and procedures.
The bottom line is you owe it to yourself and your family to do your homework when it comes to picking an opportunity to work with. Learning how to attract leads on Facebook is of secondary importance if you’re in the wrong opportunity to begin with. Get educated, evaluate your opportunity, learn the marketing skills and get to work!
