Today I will be educating you about a pre-launch business opportunities. This is information that you MUST READ in order for you to be successful in making money online.
In this post I will give you an illustration of a pre-launch from a traditional business position. Picture this, when you decide to start a business there are certain things you must do before it actually happens. The first thing is capital(money), then you would have to find a location for this business and from the beginning you should know how you are going to market your business (getting people to check you out). Okay having said all of that, let's talk about the marketing phase of it, assuming that you have the capital you need to move on to the next step. You are to decide when you want to open for business. So now you have set the date, this is your grand opening. There is a whole lot of preparation that has to take place before the grand opening. Are you following me so far? PREPARATION! Now let's get back to the internet and think about this, it's the same thing when you see all these pre-launch businesses popping up everywhere and they get people to join them and they're telling everybody to get locked in for the grand opening (pre-launch) of my new business.
What are doing? They are making sure that they will have someone at their business on that day. They want potential prospects so they can make money, but here's the difference between a traditional and internet business. In a traditional business, they have overhead expenses which can be costly, advertising and marketing is one expense and many others too.
In a traditional business you have to make sure that you have a constant stream of customers, and it's the same with an internet business. Now here's the difference with the internet, you get people's name and email address and build your list, it's those people that opted in for their new business and even though the new business went up in smoke on opening day, they have got a list of potential customers that they can send an email about their next business opportunity. It's a never ending cycle and did you make any money. Nope not at all.
What happened? They got your contact information and can email you or sell there list they just created and make a very good profit. Why? It's because people don't take the time to check out these companies that are in pre-launch. These so called businesses will promise you that you will make $10,000 in 30 days. It's an EASY LURE so don't fall for it. Check out the management team and see if they are qualified to run a business.
YOU MUST DO YOUR HOMEWORK SO YOU DON'T KEEP SPINNING YOUR WHEELS AND MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
A pre-launch is simply a new business and they want to get as many people to sign up and get on their list. There are many people that believe that if you get in early, or at the beginning of a new business that you are in the best possible position for success. Oh really then why is it, every new business opportunity that comes out, after the day of their pre-launch, you don't hear anymore about that business. It's because it was built on hype. "Get in now, get locked in now, or one of my favorites get in and have spillover." Oh my goodness don't fall the spillover myth, you're just targeting a bunch of lazy people that want something for nothing. If you have been to my blog before then you already know about spillover. If not you can read about it now.
Pre-launches is NO good at all, and people should realize this. You want to get in a company that has been in business for at least two years or more, and after that time they have gotten things pretty much in order and there is no need to be making a whole lot of changes and there is no need to be messing with the compensation plan so you won't get paid.
I wrote this post to educate you. I want your success and I will help you when you speak up. That's all it is to it.
All YOU must do is get my FREE e-book right now. It's located in the sidebar to the right. When you do this, I will contact you within 36 hours. So get my e-book now, and I can get started helping you to make that residual income that you desire.

Today's post will be different because I want to share a video with you that a Facebook friend of mine made about me. What I want you to know is this, I was just doing what I do everyday and that is help people when I see someone that I can help. It's not about trying to get them in my business. It's just about doing what comes natural to me.
On this day I helped a friend of mine and you will find out his name from the video I am about to share with you. When I was done helping him, he thanked me and he was very appreciative and I told him that I was happy to do it. I proceeded to continue with my daily work routine, and later on that day I went back to Facebook and to my surprise I saw a video and it was about ME. It was my friend and he took the time to make a testimonial video about me. I thought, WOW that was totally cool of him to do this. He really appreciated my help because he said it in the video.
It's very rewarding when someone goes out of their way to say thank you. Gratitude is the word I think of.
What a way to show gratitude and I really do appreciate you Philippe Moisan, you are a true friend and I am very glad to know such a kind person as you.
Just think if I hadn't taken the time to connect in the first place, then I would have been missing out on his friendship. Also I learned about his talent with doing videos, many people do not have this skill and if you take my advice you should look at his Youtube channel and subscribe. We can help each other and this is the way it's supposed to be. Forget about making money and just help someone without expecting anything in return, and see how it makes you feel. It's a great feeling and I am proud to boast about it here in this post, I love being this way and it is who I am spiritually inside.
Your life still goes on whether you have money or not. Having a lot of money didn't help Steve Jobs. He had a serious health condition and having all that money couldn't keep him from dying. We all have to die and that is the fact, but if you have no friends or family that you can talk to and share your feelings with, then is your life really a good one? I say it's not. You're all alone, well not really because if YOU believe in God then that's who you lean on the most and talk too. God will listen and hear you. Be grateful! Having a good friend helps a plenty too.
Gratitude is a good thing, and I encourage everyone to look at the video and think about what I said above. GRATITUDE is what I felt when I looked at it. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and here's to my friend Philippe and to all the friends I am to meet in the future.

Please leave your thoughts and comments below, and I will surely answer you back.

Well I'm back and now I am going to reveal the answers and hopefully you have rated them as instructed from my previous post. If you are new here and have not read part one then you can just click here and do so now.
Let's begin, and we shall find out "Are YOU Thinking Like A Prospect?
The number one thing that is important to the prospect is:
1. Who gave the presentation? I hope this doesn't surprise you, because if you put something else as number one then it's not looking good for you. I've said it once before in previous post, and I will say it again here PEOPLE JOIN PEOPLE! It's YOU that they know, like and trust. It's not about the company or any products, it's just simply YOU!
So moving on to number two, and that is, Upline Support. Your prospect wants to know if you can help them, and and will the up-line be any help too. Makes sense, let's look at it this way would you want someone to sponsor you in the business and then you're just left all alone and don't know what to do next? It doesn't make you feel confident in your decision to join them in their network marketing company, and now you're wondering if anyone is going to join you because you don't know if you want to continue. It's a bitter pill to swallow, there again it's all about YOU!
What's number three, is there Training Provided? Still again it's about you and no mention of money yet. All that matters to your prospect is "Will YOU Help Me?"
Do YOU have a system in place which I can follow to help me be successful, and what about conference calls that they can get on, is it sufficient to teach me the skills that I will need for my business? These are all the questions your prospect wants to know before they want to know about your company. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ASSURE THEM OF THIS BEFORE YOU EVEN ATTEMPT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR COMPANY!
Number Four would be the "Marketing Plan and Potential Earnings"
Now your prospect is probably wondering "Can I really make money doing this and can you train me?" You don't want to get all into the details of if, just give them an short overview as as not to confuse them. Remember this may very well be someone who is a total newbie and they want understand if you go into too much detail. On the other hand, if they have been another network marketing company and didn't do so good, then you surely want to tread lightly with them too. In either case, just be brief as possible and give them a little bit of how they can make money and reassure them they can do it.
Coming up next is number five. Since we are here and now I will ask how are you doing so far? If you got them all right then you great, so you are thinking like a prospect. However if you have missed on all of the four mentioned above then that's something you have got to work on. It means the success of your business and it is vitally important. Here's number five and it is Product Line. Okay now you can finally talk about products, but hold up a minute, WHOA nelly slow down. All they want to know is "What is the product and can I use it?" Please, please don't waste a lot of time telling them ingredients and such things about the product. They're not ready to hear any of that yet. Just keep is simple, and that is that. Listen and if they ask a question, be ready to answer but be brief and KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Now number six is coming at you, and it is Being First In The Area. Now they want to know if there is potential for growth and this is important to your prospect because they don't want to join a company, and find out in a few years, that the company is shutting it's doors because there is no market for the product anymore. That would be a truly sad day for them because now they have to start all over again.
Moving right along to number seven, and I have to ask "How are you doing so far?" I hope that you have gotten some of them right because if you have missed them all then that would surely not be a good thing for your business.
Back to number seven and it is Company Literature Shown.
YOU CAN'T RELY ON SALES BROCHURE TO SELL SOMEONE. Not even an audio or video tape. Once again it back on YOU. It's making that connection and having a relationship with people. That's what network marketing is, it's a relationship business. I can't make it more clearer than that. If YOU don't have relationships with people then that means your business will not prosper. Bottom line because nothing else matters.
Oh boy we're moving on to number eight, and this a good one. Now your prospect wants to know if the company is legitimate and that they are there. They just want to know that they will send them a check, and that they have an office with an address and a phone they can call them if they need to.
Okay here's number nine Is The Sales Kit Provided?
Now you can tell them about the great videos, and the brochures and all the tools they will get to build their business. Notice this is almost the least important thing the prospect wants to know. Why do you think that is? It's about the top three things that I told you about at the beginning, YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT and what that means if you haven't taken the time to get to know someone, and you trust each other then nothing else matters they won't be a prospect for your business anyway. It's a relationship business and I believe that with all my heart. It's how you build your business and have lifelong friendships in the process. This is truly the only way to do it. It's YOU!
Oh wow we're at number ten and this is the least important thing that a prospect wants to know about when you're speaking to them, and that is Company Management Experience.
They don't want to hear stories about how the president of the company is a family man or if he is down to earth man and he shops at Walmart. It just doesn't matter to them. Just make sure they like and believe you. The only thing that you want to do is leave them with a great impression of you, and that you can call them because you have a friend that know, like and trust you for being who you are.
It all starts with YOU, and now it's time to tally up your score to see how you rank.
Here's how you would do that, take the difference between what you had and the correct answer. (Example: suppose you had number 7 Company Literature shown as number 3 then the difference would be 4.) Now just do that with each item, then add them up and see how you thinking, comparing how yourself to how the prospect is thinking.
I will leave you with this final thought "IT'S WHAT YOUR PROSPECT THINKS THAT MATTERS. WHAT YOU KNOW DOESN'T MATTER TO THEM."
If you have taken the time to do this quiz then you will do very nicely in this business and know that to be successful in this business YOU MUST get educated first.

I will start off by saying that it's not what you're thinking. In a few minutes I am going to provide you with a list, and from that list I am going to give you a little quiz to see if you are thinking like a prospect. This is critical that you know this, because it will make the difference of you having a successful business. No one wants to waste any time on building your business, because you want to create a residual income so that you can have freedom to do what you want, when you want.
Now grab a pen and write down this list I am about to give to you, and what I want you to do is, rate these items yourself, from 1 to 10, most to least important. I recommend that you take this quiz and I will give you the answers on tomorrow.
Added Note: The number one most important thing is... and I'm willing to say this much, that only a few people will know what it is.
OK are you ready.
Here's the list:
* Company Literature
* Marketing plan and potential earnings
* Training provided
* Who gave the presentation
* Product Line
* Company Management experience
* Up-line support
* Company image
* Sales kit provided
* Being first in the area
Now from the prospect point of view, list those down from 1 to 10. Go ahead and do it now!
On tomorrow I will give you the answers, and if some of you can't wait then YOU can always get the answer here. (Don't peek until you have numbered your list)
