Episode 1: Interview with Bitqyck Leader Kevin Jellerson

By Coach Roger

I’ve known my friend Kevin Jellerson for a couple of years now and wanted him to be my first interview on Coach Roger Radio because he’s always keen on new technologies, and has a great habit of being successful when he jumps in.

Kevin, or KJ to his friends, talks about Bitqyck (pronounced ‘Bit-Quick’), a new digital currency and business opportunity. To simplify the model, think Bitcoin meets Groupon. After listening to the podcast, if this is something you want to know more about, you can contact Kevin directly @ 972.954.7646 or kjellerson@me.com. Enjoy!

Women, Network Marketing and Facebook

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

 

Most people who start in a network marketing or home based business are on a tight budget. Considering you might spend $300-$600 every month in marketing dollars, you want to make money quickly.

The question then becomes how do you maximize the budget you do have, even if you’re starting from zero? More and more MLM companies suggest marketing directly to other network marketers, a great idea. The logic being these people already understand the concept of leverage, they have bought into the network marketing business model and have already proven they are buyers.

But if everyone markets to the same demographic, does that share of the pie become too small? The answer: Absolutely not! There’s room for us all, folks.

Robert A. Heinlein, considered by many as the dean of science fiction writers said, “Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.”

Bill Gates echoed the same sentiment, saying he would rather hire lazy people to do difficult jobs because they would find an easier way to get it done.

Is Your Website Mobile Friendly? Check Here

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

If you have a business, is your website mobile friendly? The technical term is “responsive” meaning if you view it from a smartphone, will it be visually readable or is the text so small you’re squinting your eyes? If your site isn’t responsive, why not?

Here’s why it’s so important: According to Google, more than 80% of us access the Internet from our phones. In fact, Entrepreneur Magazine echoes that with numbers, stating over a billion people access the Internet from a mobile device. You may be reading this from your smartphone right now.

So if the majority of us are within close reach of our phones and if your website isn’t responsive, think of how much business you could potentially be losing. It’s worth getting that fixed.

Here is a way to check if your site is responsive and if not, how to fix it for free. Check it out here.

Stop Babying Your Downline

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

If you’re in a network marketing deal you know what happens when you recruit people, right? Some go nuts and start building their business, others waffle about and do nothing. In fact, most people do nothing.

So what do some of us do? We call them, we encourage them, we push them to the point of practically stalking them. We exert so much wasted energy trying to help them build their business, ultimately it just pisses us off.

You also know you don’t have to do that, right? Stop babying your downline, or business partners as I like to call them. Nobody wins in this scenario.

By Coach Roger

Whether the economy is booming or slow, particularly in the last 17 years, it hasn’t affected powerhouse MLM Avon a bit. In fact, according to the New York Times, sales in 2009 were estimated at well over $10 Billion, double what it was in 2000.

“Just because someone is on a tight budget,” says Amy Robinson, a spokeswoman for the Direct Selling Association, “doesn’t mean she’s stopped buying her foundation.”

If You’re Marketing Using Twitter, Stop!

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

According Josh Steimle of MWI, a digital marketing agency, there are 5 marketing initiatives you should stop right now because this year they’re going to die a slow death. Here is a summary of the Top 5 digital marketing trends and the reasons why he thinks they will die in 2017.

In summary:
  1. Pop Up Ads

Reason: Google has data that shows people don’t like them and now boosts site owner rankings if they remove them.

  1. Fake Reviews

Reason: Writing fake reviews is in itself an industry and companies hire people to write them. However, today’s online user is more savvy and, for the most part, can differentiate between what’s real and what isn’t. Amazon launched lawsuits against companies for publishing fake reviews.

FIVE Critical Points To Help Your MLM Business

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

I was having a lively chat with a business partner the other day and he asked if being a network marketer meant he was a sales person. He was a little perplexed by my answer. To break it down, I listed five critical points everyone should know to help build an mlm business:

  • You Are A Leader

The short answer to him was ‘Yes’ he is in sales. First and foremost, sales people are leaders and the world needs good leaders. It’s also one of the highest paid professions. People WANT to be led because given the choice of work vs. the path of least resistance, that path will always win; it’s easier to follow than to lead, so be different.
