April 2, 2012- Stop Being NormalTONIGHT – Money Call (Green Means Go)
Here’s a quick network marketing review:
3X3 4X4 5X5
7th level 2,187 16,000 ??? (78,000!!!)
The difference between 5 and 3 is not 2. The difference between 5 and 3 is almost 76,000!
Today I had a good friend in Reno tell me that his friend didn’t see the money
in SendOutCards. I asked if his friend had ever done network marketing in the past. He said, “no”. His friend does not understand business as it relates to
network marketing or distribution. There are many products that, on the surface, don’t appear to be very lucrative. For example; how can you make money on a .62 greeting card? Well, if you sell one or two cards, it’s true, you can’t make much money.
Let’s use our geometric progression example from earlier. Let’s say we focus just on the 4X4 equation through 7 generations (levels). Let’s say each person on the 7th generation does $93 a month in revenue (to stay qualified), your volume would be $1.6 million/mo (16,000 X $93 which, by the way, is what my monthly volume is today). At minimum, you would receive 5% (and in actuality, you would receive more because we are just talking about the 7th level here in your DISTRIBUTOR group!)
Distribution is very powerful. Remember J. Paul Getty’s quote, “I would rather have 1% of 100 people’s efforts than 100% of my own!” Our goal is to collect a small percentage off the work of many. There are many things we consume today that cost a fraction of a dollar and produce millions of dollars in sales. Ray Kroc could have never gotten rich on one McDonald’s franchise. However, by selling hundreds of them for $250,000+ he was able to create a distribution channel that would allow him to collect a few pennies off each of the millions of burgers, fries, shakes and cokes sold each day. There is even money in Q-tips and they sell for a fraction of a penny. It’s all about distribution.
The greeting card industry (now a $7.5 billion industry) was built on people buying $4 cards. Most people don’t buy cards and when they do, they buy one or two at the time. When you have thousands of outlets all selling a few, the money on the back-end can get huge.
So, we have a product that is in huge demand that is 1/5 the price of what someone can get it through traditional channels.
Plus,we have an opportunity that is second to none (we can go head-to-head with any other company out there with our compensation plan).
And, we do it without deceptive practices or manipulation. There are companies out there that use smoke and mirrors to recruit. This is almost always a time bomb. With SendOutCards, what you see is what you get. AND it protects our company for the long haul.
HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES OF WAYS TO MAKE MONEY IN SOC (3 perspectives):
1. MECHANICAL: Turn your dashboard green and teach a few others to do the same thing. It’s very simple. Do it and teach it. Green means go! Turning your dashboard green simply means to get at least 2 subscription customers, be on a $31 a month subscription yourself AND find $93 in total monthly volume (if need be, go out and purchase some samples for yourself from the Photostore or give away some gifts until you have enough subscriptions to cover your own qualification each month. Turn yours green and then help others turn their green. Do it and teach it. If you don’t know how to turn your dashboard green, simply go to your main menu and let your dashboard load. If it’s not green, click on the little “?” on the upper right hand corner and read the description. It’s very simple! Do it and teach it!
2. FINANCIAL: The numbers don’t lie. The equation is simple. Remember 3X3, 4X4, 5X5. If you’ll put together your SIMPLE plan to sponsor 24-48 people personally in the next 12-24 months with the goal of achieving the equivalent of a 3×3 (2187), you’ll be making bank. 2187 X $93 in volume = approx $200,000/mo. You’ll get 5% – 25% of this each month (and this is just your 7th level)!
3. ENERGETIC: Send Out at least 1 personal card a day and teach your team to do the same thing. Put your heart onto your cards. Send out daily love into the world each day. You get back what you send out. Give the gift of walking one person each day through sending a card on a “Gift Account” and then watching the videos. 100 people each day doing a gift account walk-through will typically yield a minimum of 20 new distributors per day and you will become a rockstar! Now imagine if you had 1,000 people each day doing that.
The reason you are here is because you are DONE being normal. Normal is boring. Normal people are broke. Normal gets you poor results in terms of financial growth and personal satisfaction. Normal people struggle to pay their bills. Normal people have lots of debt that burdens them throughout their entire lifetime. Normal people are un-inspired and are living weekend to weekend. Normal people dread Mondays and live for Fridays. Normal people complain about their lives. We (in Network Marketing) get to live extraordinary lives. We are striving to make a difference in the world. We are on a journey of personal growth. We have a chance to travel to all the corners of the earth and bring a message of hope to people of many cultures and backgrounds. We can get excited about being part of a business model that offers unlimited possibilities for financial success.
Let’s take a look at what normal people do. Normal people watch 4-6 hours of TV per day. Most people say, “Oh, I don’t watch that much TV”. Well, someone is watching TV because the advertisers are still advertising and paying 10’s of thousands of dollars per minute. Normal people spend 1-2 hours PER DAY in rush-hour traffic. It has been suggested that network marketing is a cult. Network marketing is no more a cult than a job is a cult. If I have a choice to be brainwashed to offer something to people that will make their lives better or be brainwashed to; get up at 5:30am to an alarm clock (that un-naturally and violently jerks you out of bed) then, with glazed-over eyes, jump into my car with my coffee to creep along in 2 mph rush-hour traffic for an hour, for 40 hours of my week for 40 years with people that I typically don’t want to be around, causing me to complain about it year in a year out, all so I can scrape by with no prospect of every really getting ahead, I’ll join the network marketing cult!
When I was in my early 20’s I decided that normal wasn’t for me. When I got ridiculed or mocked, I said to myself, “it’s okay. You’re normal. I don’t want to be like you”. I watched the people around me at work (at the State of AZ, The City of Phoenix and then America West Airlines) and I said to myself, “If I don’t get out of this prison, I will die a slow death”. My co-workers (most of them) were numb to the agony they had been experiencing for years. It’s a slow lobotomy that very quietly eats away at your spirit. In most cases it kills whatever drive you had to grow and contribute. Now I know, this doesn’t apply to everyone, but it’s interesting to notice how many people complain about how much they hate their boss or their job. I also find it interesting how many people complain about not having enough money or not enough time to spend doing the the things they want to do. The negativity that permeates a typical working environment destroys the human spirit over time.
I don’t get mocked too much any more, although I know there are some people that do. Most of the people that mock me are people that are stuck, looking for someone else to blame. Network Marketing simply offers an opportunity. I do know this; if one person can do it, then many more can do it too. That’s the premise of our business. If one can do it, then others can do it too. I know that if I can achieve this level of success, the opportunity exists for you to do it as well. This is the REASON I was able to “break-out” in my last company. I saw others that had done it and I said to myself, “If they can do it, I can do it”. That’s how it all starts. I have never met a single person that made it big and said. “Yeah, that’s good for him, but I could never do the same thing!” There are MILLIONS of people that have never heard of SendOutCards and it is the perfect thing they need! Our job is to get to them and show them what we are doing.
Stop being normal. Step out of the status quo. It’s okay to buck the system and be different. We are different. We are not normal. Our chosen line of work challenges the status quo. It’s a better way of doing business. It’s more fun. It’s more rewarding. It has unlimited potential for growth. It doesn’t require expensive degrees. Yes, it’s non-conventional and as a result, MOST people don’t get it. That’s built in. It’s okay. Don’t fight that. Do your best to educate and find the ones that are ready. The REASON for our opportunity is because MOST people don’t see it. As soon as everyone sees it the opportunity is over. Be thankful that only a few get it. It buys us time. Would you rather have 5,000 people on your team once everyone else figures it out, or would you rather have 10 people on your team. Do you see why it’s better that most people don’t see it right away. Be thankful that we are in a line of work that is not normal (most people don’t get what we do). That’s a good thing! You must be bold and step out to FIND those that see it the way we do. Get really good at sorting for the right ones. If you don’t find them, someone else will. (I would rather it be you!)

This is just the beginning. SendOutCards is positioned for rapid growth over the next 3-5 years. My question for you is, “Are you positioned for rapid growth”?
I recommend stepping it up. If you were planning on doing it in a year, get it done in a month. If you were planning on getting it done in a month, get it done in a week. If you were striving to achieve it in a week, do it in a day. You’ll find it’s actually EASIER if you get it done quickly. Get excited and share your excitement. Energy is what attracts others to you and to our business.
