Moms working online: are you Internet Marketing Leaders?

A leader is an…

A leader is an…


The qualities of a good leader are many. Some attributes are character, tolerance, enthusiasm, commitment, team work, willingness to go the extra mile, etc.

In the last post I mentioned that a leader is always learning.

She also knows that she doesn’t know everything. When we think we do, we can’t learn.

You don’t need to be familiar with everything about your niche. You are an expert when you learn basic concepts and keep adding to your understanding.

If you follow any training offered online, you become and expert too.

Practice establishing yourself as an expert next time you are talking with someone.

Show that you know few things about certain topic. No sales pitch, and no showing off either. The one asking questions controls the conversation so don’t over do it.

You are selling the idea that you KNOW what you are talking about. It may be or not related to your business. For instance, if you sell vitamins and someone mentions the need for Calcium, you can explain briefly why they need Vitamin D and Magnesium too.

Apply the same principle online. If you learn ways to optimize your blog, you already know more than many people.

Establishing yourself as an expert involves teaching what you know.

Only useful information that will educate! And admit it when you don’t know something. A leader is humble, too!

How do you establish yourself as a leader? Leave a comment about it. And remember to share this post with others, thanks!

Network Marketing Moms: are we lead-ers and leaders?

I just came up with the first one: Are you a lead-er?

The life of a Network Marketing business is having leads. The goal of Online Marketing is to attract prospects, to implement ways to generate our own leads. We can be the ones creating leads, lead-ers.

Have you read any of the information that is around about Internet Network Marketing, Attraction Marketing or similar (either from me or other authors)?

Then you know that is possible to generate your own quality leads.

You have to be a lead-er, the one who creates leads.

And you have to lead your prospects, teach them how to build a business. You have to be a leader.

Take the time to work on yourself. See yourself as a leader, the one who leads, who inspires, who influences people.

A good leader knows the people s/he is helping and leading. Do you know what your niche subject is? How can you become a “lead-er” in your niche?

A leader is always learning. Learn a little bit more about what you want to teach.

Is it important to be a lead-er and a leader? Why? Leave a comment about it and share this post with your network. Thanks!

Building A Smarter Marketing Funnel: Why we should NOT promote affiliate programs

As moms it seems like we always reach new levels of “being busy”.

That happened to me during the last few months when my priorities shifted from working my business consistently to staying online from time to time to keep giving value.

But when I came back a couple of weeks ago, after my family returned to Peru, I was in a funny place.

It’s like coming back from vacation. You need time to get back to the swing of things.

And I didn’t know where to start and what projects I should finish first. I did finish an e-book I was working on and my next step was to complete a training series. Even with that, I needed some guidance.

And then I read Mike Klingler’s article about Building a Smarter Marketing Funnel . Everything made sense!

Then, last night, he conducted a Webminar that made everything even more clear. I know what I’m doing wrong.

I know, for example, that I shouldn’t promote Mike Klingler here (and I know I'm not offending him). But I need to share this now before you keep trying to promote more affiliate programs in hopes to make more money.

This Hub is long but it’s worth our time. I read it after my children went to bed.

It will show why we should NOT promote Affiliate products before we promote ours first.

So I’m back to work on my Marketing Funnel but first I must draw my map (you can learn about it in the Hub, too). I see what I need to fix.

I have more ideas now.

I know it will take time and patience to develop them. But I will do it.

Do you have any tips for building a smarter Marketing Funnel? Leave a comment about it!
