Goodbye Timecard, Hello Residual Income

Think back to your first job – were you a babysitter, a paperboy, or punching the time card at McDonalds? In each of these jobs you were paid by the hour or to complete a job. When you were on the clock you got paid, but the moment you entered your employee number into the computer for your break the clock stopped. These jobs along with many more salary type professions are considered active income.

Active income is when you are paid for a certain amount of work. You work for one hour and receive one hour’s wages. To increase your income you must either work more or find a way to increase the amount you are paid per hour of work. Your income is a direct result of your actions. Active income is also limited, we all have 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week. You can only work so many hours so therefore the time that you can be paid for your actions directly limits your active income. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get paid when you are not on the clock? You can.

Hello Residual Income

In all things there are opposites and residual or passive income is the opposite of active income. In residual income you receive payment for an action long after the action has been completed. The rich and famous enjoy residual income from song rights, book sales, and patents. But you don’t have to be famous to enjoy the benefits of residual income.

Potential Sources of Residual Income

  • Advertisements, subscriptions, donations or affiliate links on your blog or website
  • Purchasing property and leasing or renting out the space
  • eBook sales
  • Investment programs with interest
  • Photography royalties for stock photos
  • Network marketing opportunities

Almost a Fairy Tale

Now don’t let the word passive fool you. With residual income you have the potential to earn money while lounging on the beach, but you need to put in the effort to get your investment rolling. Choose an opportunity that matches your strengths and has the potential for growth.

In network marketing you invest in the right product and share that product with customers that connect to its purpose and value. You move products or services through a vein of like minded people that become loyal to a product or service. As the customers return to the product again and again long after your initial contact and sale your residual income grows. The only limit to residual income is how much you do and are willing to help other people.

Freedom

Residual income allows you to free yourself from the timecard. As you grow your business you could go from a part time job that brings you full time pay to being financially independent. Whether this provides you with freedom from debts, the ability to move your location, or change your family lifestyle – investing in a residual income business is a postive investment in your future.

Becoming the Consistent Product

A strong foundation is required to be a successful network marketer

Network marketing starts with a connection. The person you connect with can make you wonderful promises, tug at your heartstrings, and make you want to join them on their quest to improve the world. But, what if they don’t keep their promises. Why won’t they return your phone calls? What happened to that ideal connection?

Network marketing gets a bad reputation because some individuals do not keep their promises. They scam others into believing in something that isn’t real and never deliver what is promised. Integrity is everything in the business of relationships. From the first meeting throughout all transactions and interactions your success will be built by honesty, integrity, and consistency.

Honesty

Honesty must run through your life and business. Keeping commitments, like being on a three-way call with a new recruit or delivering a customer’s first purchase must all be done when promised. If your word is compromised, then trust has been broken. Be real with people about yourself and your product and customers will develop a strong connection with you.

Integrity

Your motives must be sincere. Many individuals join a network marketing group with the goal of making additional or substantial income. That is a desirable goal, but not if you seek to harm others to line your pocketbook. Scamming and taking advantage of people do not grow a successful, sustainable business.

Consistency

I go to my favorite restaurant time and time again because I know that they will always deliver a consistent, delicious product. Knowing that I will have a positive experience keeps me loyal. You want to become the favorite restaurant that your clients can trust to deliver a consistent relationship and product.

True success comes from real relationships. As a successful network marketer my goal is to work with people who are looking for more in life, living a healthier life, and getting back to nature is my goal and I am committed to helping those individuals who are looking for the same thing.

GPN – your network marketing sales team

Increase Sales
Increase sales with a sales team

So you joined a network marketing company!  Congratulations!  Did your sponsor tell you to make a list of all your friends and family and start hitting them up with your product?  Did you know that your friends and family are the hardest people to recruit into your business?

I was talking to a network marketer the other day and we were discussing these very issues.  I was asking him how he was marketing his business and he told me that he made a list of his friends and family.  I asked him how it was going.

His response was classic, “Great!”

I asked why he was calling me since I wasn’t on his friends and family list.

Again a classic response was “We have to talk to everyone!”

I asked him how he got my name.

“I saw you were a network marketer on LinkedIn”

I asked, “What is your point?”

He then told me that I should join his network marketing company.

I asked him why.

He then proceeded to  tell me how good his product was, how it was helping people’s health, and it was a product that is ahead of its time.  It had been sold for some years in stores, but the problem was that no one would buy it because they had no clue what it did.  Through network marketing (word of mouth), the product could get a proper explanation.

Was I sold on his product or his company?  NO!

Why do you think that is?

For me, there was no emotional conviction.  There was a lot of information about the product, but I wanted to know how it was going to make me money.  I have been in network marketing for some time, so I know the process works.  Now what I wanted to know was how to present the product in the light of the needs of the person.  To make money, a product or service must be sold.  If I help enough people get what they want, then I will get what I want.  If I can help another person with their health and finances, then I should be able to get the finances for my health.

Here is the rub!

People don’t care about health!  People care about money.  If they can make more money, then they can afford to care about their health.  It takes money to eat better.  It takes money to join a gym to exercise. It takes time and money to entertain and feed the family.

Making money and having more time is the impetus for most network marketers.  Oh, they might say that it was the product, or the compensation plan, or the hype that got them involved, but the bottom line is that people want more time and more money.

However, people are not sales people.  How do you make money?  You either have to sell a product or a service or sell your time to another person who is going to use you to fulfill their dream.

What if you don’t like to sell or don’t want to talk to people?  I know a ton of network marketers who love to talk, to stand up on stage and pontificate with lots of braggadocio! They develop the hype that anyone can do this and if they can do it, then anyone can do it.

What a lot of hogwash!  NOT everyone can do it.

Sometimes we need help.  Sometimes we don’t like to talk to people.  Sometimes we don’t have the desire to talk to everyone within 3 feet.  Sometimes we don’t want to talk to anyone.

Sales people can’t afford to do that.  This is their livelihood and if they can’t talk they don’t make sales.  However, only 5% of the population are in the category.  What about the other 95%?

How can we build our network marketing company if we don’t want to sell or talk to people.

What if there was a way we could work with someone who will do the talking for us?

I found a company called GPN.  They do the selling for me.   The do the talking for me. They find the people who are interested in my business and give me a call to introduce me to the prospect.  Now, I only talk to those who are interested in my business.  In addition, they will coach me on how to talk to people successfully.
