DO YOU HAVE A MENTOR?

Hello Everyone Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is: Whom do you talk to that is helping your grow?

From helping you grow as a person, to help your business grow? I have found a great mentor in ROB GEHRING. I have known Rob for many years. He and I did business in the past.

When I decide to get serious with my online experience, Rob was there giving me tips and strategies. I would ask a question here and there.

Rob always responded kindly, yet challenged me to greater visions.

I try to do a weekly session with Rob. With over 21 years of full time Affiliate Marketing under his belt, he has valuable insight on what works and what doesn’t.

Rob is always coming up with new ways to help people. I take action and implement them ASAP. I’m beginning to see results which are super exciting.

Today he shared His A/B scripts with me. This is a role-playing scenario that helps you get out of your comfort zone.

One is for our primary business when talking to leads, the other is for those who are not quite sure about what business they want or need. Both help you engage with your leads.

It’s ok to have more than one mentor. I have two. The other is Janet Legere.

I love Janet’s simple approach to life, business, and friendships. Janet goes way beyond the boundaries of helping.

She helps you to think outside the box by pointing out certain details of your questions, then makes you figure out work will work for you while offering her expertise in the Affiliate Marketing Arena.

Both of my mentors have helped me grow. When I first started, I knew nothing about blogging. Now It’s one of my passions.

Learning marketing strategies, list building, correct ways to use viral mailers, recommendations on whom to use for solo ad providers, all the while making you feel that YOU can do it.

Being on the road full time as a driver definitely has its challenges. Some days I’m not able to get on the internet. I can make calls and text when I have time at least to stay in touch with my people.

I’m learning not to make excuses for my lack of time. We all have the same 24 hour period of time. What you do with it will tell in the end.

I had a challenging defining moment from Blain Jones-Co founder of Click Track Profit. He pointed out: your posts average less than 20CTP in earnings each. I would look at ways to earn a bit more with them.

There are plenty of people making 100+ CTP on their posts. Looking at your posts it looks like a lot of them are exaggerated calls to action. These kinds of posts don’t really get engagement or response. It would be more effective to tell your story than selling financial freedom that you have yet to achieve.

This is hard to swallow at first. I thought I was putting real thought to engaging questions for people to answer. I thought I was putting myself into my stories.

Creating new stories takes time and effort. How do you engage people to financial freedom? I have a lot more to learn, so begins a new chapter .

IS YOUR LIFE REALLY YOURS?

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. The question above I have been asking myself for a period of time. This should be an easy question, the more I think about it the more complex it becomes.

I have a driving career, side hustle landscape jobs, then I have putting a lot of work into my AFFILIATE MARKETING.

I have great mentors, they inspire me to reach bigger and bigger goals.

People Working in front of the Computer

For me, my goals are small and steady. Driving takes most of my time. I really have to push myself to put time into my business. It’s way too easy to say I’m tired, don’t have time, no advertising time and the list could go on and on.

I truly enjoy writing Michael The traveling Trucker Blog. Bringing value to people is very important to me.

What is holding you back? I find I really need more people on my LIST. I do have a good start but I need more influx of people. The process from solo ads or co-op shares must be steady and on going.

Social media, traffic exchanges, and viral mailers need to be incorporated daily.

Running a business takes time, money, and effort. We have to step out of our comfort zones. Make those calls, follow up those emails and texts.

If people don’t respond after a period of time, MOVE ON. There is someone who really wants to change their financial circumstances. Work with them.

What are some of your GOALS? How can you improve them? Do you have a daily routine?

Do you make time for learning for self improvement? What books do you read, videos do you watch and people you hang out with?

When you decide to make your life your own, take out all the stops. Don’t let anything stop you. You are your own person. Everything you will ever need is already inside of you, LET IT OUT.

When you don’t know something, PLEASE ask for help. We in this business are here to support and help each other.

A few hints: write out your daily, weekly , monthly and yearly plans of action. Yes these are called GOALS. Take time daily for marking off your plans of action. It will give you a sense of purpose, a warm feeling, and Hey I Got These Done.

HOW TO PLANT YOUR GARDEN

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is ” How To Planet Your Garden”.

When contemplating how much return you want from your harvest, you must look at how much seed are you going to plant? The more seed you plant the bigger the HARVEST.

Business is the same way. Planting as many seeds as possible is PARAMOUNT. What is your seed? LCP-Lead Capture Page. I personally use several different pages.

People don’t like seeing the same offer over and over. Be creative in your thinking process. Do tests to see what works best.

What is your offer? ANYONE?—– IT’S YOU. You are YOUR OFFER. If people don’t know you, do you really think they will buy from you? Brand yourself TO BE the go-to person. Let people know you can solve their problems.

Look at OUR leaders. Their success has come from years of building their lists, Watering those lists ( communicating) with people, and guiding them to the best offers. Putting more people on your list is the NUMBER 1 GOAL of any marketer, so be SMART. Add to YOUR list daily.

Top View of Green Field
Make Your Harvest Look Like This!

You water your seeds through viral mailers, Udimi solo ads, word of mouth, business cards, videos, and a host of other tools.

I CAN’T SAY THIS ENOUGH-BUILD YOUR LIST. No list, no money. You are here to make $$$$$$, RIGHT. Listen to your leaders.

Attend weekly webinars. Talk to your leaders, ask questions. Set up a one on one meeting to discuss your strategies . Using every advantage is not only smart but can be very PRODUCTIVE.

PLEASE follow up with your leads. This is the lifeblood of YOUR business, so don’t let one drop slip away.

I want everyone of you to have your dreams come true. Work hard daily, show up, do the work, follow up, advertise and then do it all over tomorrow.

If you need any help, please contact me. I would love to help.

Leaving Your Mark

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. I was thinking about the ways we leave our “MARK” on people around us.

Mention: https://www.pinterest.com/kenziebabby/people-leaving-quotes/

I was complaining to God, can you really hear me? Do you really understand? I got an instant text from a Chaplain Friend of mine from Breezewood, Pa, saying he was praying for me and my family.

Tears rolled down my cheeks. I knew right then and there God was listening and cares for me. Today I offer gratitude, thankfulness, and a heart full of LOVE.

I leave my mark on my sweet bride, by offering funny emojis throughout the day to let her know how special she is in my life. Telling and showing Regina my love for her by acts of service. That’s my love language to her.

I do special things for my two girls. I always want them to be daddy’s girls. Driving to my daughter’s work to put her tag sticker on her car because she forgot and was driving with a expired tag.

People I’m in business with, I leave my blog, share my ideas, and show respect and love for my personal leaders.

I share the best advice with those who come behind me. Things I learn from the leaders-Like follow-up, how to talk to people, how to set up ads, Why we follow the system to the letter.

Show your BIG SMILE every day. Find something to compliment them on. Be the person, others love being around. We all know that one person who people flock to. Become that PERSON.

Have you ever thought about Writing a book, Writing a song, A love poem? Creating a tee shirt, coffee mug, poster…… There are so many ways to leave your mark.

Be a trusted friend. Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Aunt, Uncle. Impart your wisdom into the hearts of people.

PEOPLE LOVE TO BE VALUED. In closing, “HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR MARK”?

Leave Your Finger Print, They Will See it

My Ads Better Than Your Ad

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. Have you ever felt like the kid on the playground. My Dad’s better than your Dad.

Mention: https://pixabay.com/images/search/kids%20playing/

Stick People, Children, Kids, School

In marketing, why is there the feeling of My Ad Is better than your Ad?

Yes, there are fabulous ads that catch your ATTENTION, others we just skip by. Why is that? Is it words we use, pictures we send, or the wrong words and pictures for the niche?

The simple truth is that most advertisers sound like a mob of two-year-olds in a day-care center, each one jumping and crying, “Me! Me! Me! Watch me! Look at me!”

Hanger and shopping bag in wardrobe

Here Are MY helpful hints:

You’re targeting the wrong audience. You haven’t addressed the needs of potential customers. Zzzzzzz…your ads are boring! Your ads are cluttered and overwhelming.

Your potential customers can’t relate. There is no call to action. You haven’t leveraged the right tools.

All these are factors in determining what will work BEST FOR YOU.

Does putting an amazing offer in front of people influence them to buy even if they don’t have an immediate or compelling want or need? 

Does an amazing offer force someone to buy if they don’t have a budget? No, it doesn’t.  So your ad gets completely ignored and you don’t get any response.

What if you find potential prospects and get their permission to market to them on a more consistent basis and with more targeted offers while spending less money?

Try Creating an ad offering a free report like this: “5 Easy Blogging Tips That People Love To READ”.

The goal of marketing is to get people who have a need to KNOW, LIKE AND TRUST you so when they are ready to buy, they buy from you. Offering helpful and useful information helps build your KNOW, LIKE and TRUST factors and yes, increases sales.

The goal of 2 Step Advertising is to get prospects to your site and get their permission to engage them by collecting their email addresses.

Once you have their permission you can share information on their specific needs. Be The Helpful Person, Who Knows what they need and willing to offer them the solution.

So what have you really LEARNED today? Can you see the value to offer people?

“Bad advertising is about the advertiser. Good advertising is about the customer.” 

Think about what people are LOOKING for, how to solve their problem, and offer it to them with LOVE.

BLACK AND WHITE OR COLOR?

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. I love black and white photos. Having someone describe what was actually going on in the photo is amazing.

Having those memories from days gone by creates a unique outlook on life.

Color has it’s place also. Paintings, photos, and nature burn an image on the brain and senses for a clear understanding of sights, smells, and tastes.

HOW DO YOU VIEW LIFE? How do you present your business?

Why do black and white photographs speak to us? In nature, colors are meant to attract, and cause things to catch our attention.

Still, even without color, black and white images are a mainstay of our craft and are powerful representations of the artistic spirit.

What is the mood you want to create? Do you want warm and inviting, calculating and precise, or business professional?

Creating your own style is fun and exciting. Taking a mixture of black and white and color invites all sorts of people.

Designing with black and white

Mix and match your brand. The saying,” A picture is worth a thousand words”. It brings energy, spice, power, and health. What can you create from your imagination? What does your mind show you?

Don’t be afraid to show your heart, passion and soul for the life of your business. Let your lead capture page speak volumes. Your thank you page be inspiring.

Everything has a price. Everything has a goal. Everything has a breath to breathe.

There is a lot to learn at GLN and our first priority is to get you set up and on “auto-pilot”. Now, let’s be honest here, there is no such thing as “auto-pilot”.

We are going to do our best to automate as much of your business as we can so that you can spend your time doing the things you enjoy. CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES To Share.

Looking over this chart, a free member would need 65 people at beginner, 35 people at Pro level, 12 people at advanced level, 6 members at Elite level, and 3 members at VIP level to reach the 10K per month. This must be done each month to maintain 10K per month. Each Upgrade gives you higher commissions to help you reach your 10K per month faster.

When you want people to come in as a VIP level $1200, I believe you must be a VIP. How can you recommend VIP if you yourself are not VIP. I hope that is clear.

There is also the 20 different incomes in the Downline Builder. All these together gives you additional income to the overall 10K per month.

Take your time in writing down your goals. This is not a race. You are not in competition with anyone but yourself. Keep a steady pace, do your daily actions for income producing activities.

Social, Social Media, Communication

What exactly is the 10K BLUEPRINT? 1st it is a belief that you can make $10,000 per month after 90 days. 2nd, taking daily action is VITAL. We all hold strong beliefs in different things.

I have found out through my own beliefs, that many of us have a lack of vision when it comes to MONEY.

Here is my QUESTION: Do YOU believe you can make $10,000 per month after 90 days? STOP FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THINK ABOUT THIS QUESTION.

Have you ever heard the statement: Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees?

These negative thoughts have to be REPLACED with, I CAN and WILL make $10,000 dollars after ninety days. I have all the resources at MY disposal.

Business, Tree, Growth, Success, Team

What thoughts are going through your mind right now after you ask yourself that question? PLEASE remember that YOU are NOT your beliefs. Your past is your past. You CAN CHANGE your thought process.

What you feed your mind daily, begins to change your beliefs. Books, motivation videos, webinar training.

Who are you LISTENING to? I have a challenge for you, ARE YOU UP FOR IT?

Write down your limiting beliefs. Take ONLY the 1st one and begin working on changing that belief. DO ONLY ONE AT A TIME. Make sense? Look at your list and pick one that relates to money, like “I have failed at internet marketing before and never made any money”.

Begin by saying: I will make money from the internet. Money comes easily to me. Money is ATTRACTED to ME. Leave yourself “POST IT NOTES EVERYWHERE. Put them where you see them numerous times per day.

Whenever a negative thought comes into your mind, counter it with a positive thought. People love to complain. This is the BIGGEST NEGATIVE BOMB. Stay away from the negative nellies.

To avoid people’s negativity- keep your plans close to your heart and DON’T tell them what your plans are. Show them by EXAMPLE.

If you don’t tell people they CAN’T try to crush your dreams. People DON’T want you to get ahead of them or leave them behind. They want you to stay in the NEGATIVE PIT. RUN, RUN, RUN AWAY.

Job, Job Offer, Workplace, Job Search

The REAL question on your mind is: SO HOW DO I MAKE $10,000 per MONTH?

What steps do I take? I’m glad I have you thinking about this question. This is really your 1st step to positive mind change.

ARE YOU A ROLE MODEL?

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. I like role models. I have sought out a few to follow because I truly like what they stand for.

Remember that role models can be positive or negative.

Mention: https://www.rootsofaction.com/role-model/

5 Qualities of Role Models

 Visibility plays an important part in making someone a role model. People who are honest in dealing with others. They always uplift people. They are helpful in instructing others.

5 Qualities of Positive Role ModelsPassion and Ability to Inspire, Clear Set of Values, Commitment to Community, Selflessness, and Acceptance of Others, Ability to Overcome Obstacles.

When- did you notice I said, WHEN you create your own success, you will become a role model. Be willing to stand strong on your beliefs, gently guide others, setting the standard for your brand of excellence.

Mention: https://www.gettyimages.com/photos/role-model

I believe we have gotten away from good role model examples, they are still there if you are willing to research them.

Most of us don’t come equipped with a clear set of ethical standards on our own. We receive lessons from others, to a certain extent, but it’s more likely that we acquire our moral sense through vicarious processes.

Mentors are a second source of learning to be ethical leaders. When they take us under their wing, those who guide us in the workplace, or even those who work side-by-side as co-workers with us show us, again through vicarious learning, that we ourselves need to be honest and fair in our dealings with others.

When you play fair, communicate directly, and in general demonstrate that you hold high standards, other people actually do look up to you. 

If for no other reason than to be liked and respected, taking the moral high ground may be the one that ultimately benefits you as well as those who look up to you as their inspiration. 

Be the best you can be daily. Talk to yourself in the mirror, tell yourself great things each day, before you tell anyone else anything. Set the standard HIGH, people will respect you for the stand you take.

Be The Role Model You Respect
