Nussentials Success Secrets Site Offers Step-By-Step Success

A new site was opened recently to help all you Nussentials or network marketing newbies. You can follow along each day's lesson, do the "homework" and start your business off on the right foot. After all the prep work, Nussentials Success Secrets (NSS) will introduce new concepts in network marketing that use the Internet as a prospecting tool and will bring in hot leads, pre-qualified as people who want to know more about working from home.

They also offer RSS feeds via email or a feed-reader, so you can bring the info right to your inbox. Listen, they know that starting and running a home based business is work, so for all you busy "homebodies", have the posts delivered right to your email so you never have to remember to go look for the next lesson.

So, take a couple of minutes and check out the new site, subscribe to the blog with email or your RSS reader, drop the author a note, offer a suggestion, ask a question or voice an opinion. I would love to hear from you!

Memory Jogger - See How Many People YOU Know

Reprinted with permission from Nussentials Success Secrets

It doesn’t matter how many leads we generate with technology, at the end of the day, you are still going to have to make some calls. You might think you don’t know enough people to get started, or be concerned that those you do know won’t be interested. Well, you can stop right there. I can help you come up with a pretty impressive list of people you know, that you don’t know you know. (Whew, I wouldn’t want to say that three times in a row)

You might be asking yourself, when is she gonna get to the good stuff? I want to generate my own pre-qualified-smoking-hot-leads now! Patience. Internet leads done right, take time to cultivate and educate. You want to be successful, right? Then trust me and start gathering customers and representatives for your team now, so the out of pocket expenses of products aren’t a burden on you while you put your Internet campaign together.

Okay, back to the Memory Jogger. This list is designed to help you remember everyone you know. Don’t do any “pre-sorting” now about their interest or potential interest, just make the list of people. Besides, it is not your place to decide for them. You are doing them a disservice. What if “Suzie” no longer is a successful stylist or is looking to start working from home because she now needs to care for her grandfather? You might miss out on a great business builder who is motivated to work from home if you presort. Okay, I’ll stop nagging now, and get to the list. Printer is plugged in? Got paper? Here you go:

Instructions for use:
Print out the main list. With either pen and paper or your favorite word processor/file editor, start adding names to your blank page. I recommend a word processor so you can sort the list later to see if you have any duplicates. You don’t want to waste time looking to see if you already added Uncle Bob (because he is bald) when you get to the Most trustworthy section. Just add the names, sort and file later. With me so far? If you see a category that you think doesn’t apply to you (like Bowling team), take a moment and try to recall if you know anyone who does bowl. While you might not bowl, you probably know someone that does. Take a least a few seconds “scanning” your brain for each category, more if you came up with 2 or more names.

If, after spending some time on this list, you only come up with two or three names, you might need to get out more.

I was sure it was obvious, but just in case… cut and paste the list shown above into a Word document (or something similar) or just print it out. Start making your list of people who come to mind when you read each “jogger”. Later, you can “presort” each name into a set of categories like “Business Opt” and “Products” or “Need More Info” and “Visit This Week”. Remember, this list is of people you already know, and might be interested in hearing what you are doing now.

Announcement: Nussentials Prospecting Is Now More Personal

In a continuing effort to improve our lead generation results, Team Infiniti just released a new set of personalized landing pages that list YOUR NAME on the page.

Our prospects are responding better to the fact that there is a real person on the other end of the offer, not just a replicated web site. So now, when the page is displayed, the next "member" of the ad rotation is preselected and your name, email and other contact information is displayed.

I am seeing consistent improvement in the CTR and CTA numbers as we make these changes. Remember that I am open to suggestions for improvement, so feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment here.

Announcement: Team Infiniti's Online Marketing Just Got Better

Of course, we didn't have a choice.

Recent problems with our hosting company forced us to upgrade our database technology to SQL Server. Three days on the phone with tech support, and this was the best answer they could provide about why our marketing site would just "die" and then come back a couple hours later.

Here's the good news.

I have successfully built the database, rewritten all the ASP pages to use the new database and even added about 3 more pages. I have moved all the leads each of you has received as a result of the marketing campaigns and even improved the detail we capture from the prospect, such as the date they toured the site. I have plans to add a new field of data to the capture process, asking them what their "burning need" is. This should help us determine if they are a good fit for the Nussentials business opportunity.

As one of the only Nussentials teams using the Internet to generate our own leads, we are blazing a trail that I hope others will follow.

Look for a new page in the members only area in the next few days that will allow you to see the prospects that have been assigned to you, and where they are in the marketing pipeline process.
