Facebook Bans Cryptocurrency Ads

facebookCryptocurrency ads appeared to have taken center stage on the social media towards the end of 2017 due in large to the surge in Bitcoin demand and the rise of the first cryptocurrency in human history to hit almost $20000.

So a whole of people and businesses have taken to the Social Media, Facebook in particular to advertise their Cryptocurrency offers, especially investments and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). There is no doubt many of these are only out to scam the unsuspecting. There are lots of ICOs without White Paper on the coins they’ve created, and this is a pointer to what might look like a scam.

However, there are other ads on Facebook that are aimed at educating and empowering the people on how blockchain works.

Advertisers woke up this morning to realize that their ads on Facebook have been banned. There is also the drop in Bitcoin as a result of the Media misinterpretation of government’s regulation speech. There was the news by a government representative in India that government will not recognize cryptocurrencies as legal tender.

Facebook, in my opinion is doing its best to protect the users. Many are really out to scam the unsuspecting. But there are advertisers with good intentions as well.

I will be writing more on what this action by facebook holds for all of us and the cryptocurrency advertisers. For those that bought Bitcoin when the price was high above $10K I feel for you. But I think that investors can begin to apply the Warren Buffet rule of being greedy when everyone is fearful and fearful when everyone else is greedy. If time permits me , I might also do some analysis technically on where we could expect Bitcoin in the coming days.

 

 

Benefits of Blockchain Based on the Concept of Provenance

For many blockchain enthusiasts there is a lot of learning required to not only be ahead but get it right in the blockchain spaceBlockchain. Businesses and business organizations need to understand the real benefits of moving their businesses to the blockchain. There is the absolute need to be convinced just the same way we were convinced the Internet was the way to go before businesses started accepting the Internet migration.

In this piece I want to in a few lines state some of the benefits of the blockchain based on one of the five properties of the blockchain technology. There are actually five properties of the blockchain technology, namely; Provenance, Consensus, Security and immutability, High Availability, and Finality.

Each of these properties offers their respective benefits to the user of the blockchain technology. My intention here is to simplify the benefit of the blockchain to businesses, to the society, to the environment and to the customer or consumer.

Provenance: First, what is Provenance?

In blockchain technology it is called digital provenance. Provenance refers to the origin of things, tracing or tracking events or transactions back to their very origin to ascertain originality, authenticity and credibility of such events or transactions. When digital provenance is activated in the blockchain a number of benefits accrue to businesses on the blockchain, the society, the environment and the end-user customer. The following are the benefits I have identified we can get in the blockchain through digital provenance.

Benefits to Businesses: Incentive for Businesses to Invest in Blockchain tracking raw materials origin include but may not be limited to  Cost-Saving, increased profit, trust and reliability will increase for the finished product. Compromise and corruption in raw material procurement is eliminated through Provenance.

Benefits to Society: Society becomes more away of the sources and origin of what they consume before they even buy. This leads to a healthier and confident society. Best quality consumption by society is almost 100% guaranteed.
Benefits to the Environment: We will have safer environment since dangerous sources of raw materials are discovered and steps taken to either correct or eliminate them.
Benefits to End-User-Customers: Customers or end users will enjoy right quality and quantity of finished or consumer goods and service delivery. It simply means that before a customer pays for any goods and services, through digital provenance, he or she will be able to verify whatever claims made by the seller or manufacturer, as all these are already documented and cannot be removed from the blockchain.

Blockchain and Your Profitable Future

Blockchain is gradually revolutionizing the digital space. How many industries and folks are going to be affected in the coming revolution?

At some point in history we couldn’t write articles unless you were a journalist. In those days I remember writing an article and had to go the post office to post to the newspaper company. The article took another one month or so (to be modest) to be published in the newspaper in the Children’s column. This was when I was in primary school I guess. Then if you would write an article for a newspaper, it would take days, weeks or even months to get to the publishers.

Then came the internet and blogging-now you can write your article today and publish same day on your blog without delay or approval from anybody so long as you own and control your blog space.

When the internet was invented I am sure the inventors never knew how big it was going to become ultimately. Gradually it moved from the internet of lines and dots to the Internet of Information and information began to travel at light speed from one part of the world to the other.

Something phenomenal happened to the photography industry which Kodak was the leader for over a century. In 1975, a new staff of the company Eastman Kodak by name Steven Sasson invented the first digital camera. But the company failed to build on that invention for fear of competing against itself. Fast-Forward to some three decades later, Kodak that in 1998 had over one 175000 employees filed for bankruptcy in 2012. That was a grand disruption to a company whose own invention took out of business because they did not believe in the invention in the first place.

The Internet has moved from the Internet of Information to the Internet of Things (IOT), and we now are talking of Internet of Value where real value is now exchanged on the internet at the speed of light.

Uber has already disrupted the taxi industry as AirBnB is disrupting the short time accommodation industry with hotels.

The question is, what and who is next to cause disruption and to be disrupted?

Blockchain is about to, sorry is already disrupting industries. Yours could be next.

The banking industry has not found it easy with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. PayPal even admits that indeed Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies are indeed causing a great revolution.

I am not here to suggest that you buy bitcoin, or any cryptocurrency as many are advising that you buy into ICOs now. My mission is simply to encourage you to invest some time to learn about this Blockchain and what the Future holds in it for all of us and our businesses.

You need to know from my point of view at this point the following 7 Important Things About the Blockchain to Profitably Key into the Future of the Technology.

Don’t take this call for granted because even Artificial Intelligence is already creating Blockchain. Let that give you an idea of what the future holds.

They are in no order as follows:

  1. From Internet of Information to Internet of Things
  2. What is This Blockchain all About?
  3. How Blockchain works
  4. Blockchain Disruptions-Are You Also Disrupted?
  5. Why You Need to Care About Blockchain?
  6. The Future of Blockchain and Your Future
  7. How You Can Profit from Blockchain

 

The Trade Secret of Top Earners in Network Marketing Online

Most people come online to do business without finding out the trade secret of top earners in network marketing who are already seeing some high level success, in doing business online. If you have been following my trainings through my blog, I have made it clear that top earners in network marketing don’t chase their family and friends around, begging them to join their businesses, instead, they apply the concept of “ATTRACTION MARKETING,” and I want to dig a bit deeper on the subject matter today so that you will have a complete and comprehensive idea on why you should do the same if you want to be a success in your network marketing business using the internet technology.

Every one need a leader that will show the way and top earners know that and do all they can to be that leader everyone wants to associate with.

I will tell you a shocking truth about network marketing that this top earners online has figured out and the day I figured it out, my life changed completely and it turned me to a leader that most people want to join in my business.

I pray that the shocking truth you will hear today will not scare you, but give you the courage to do what is right for you and your family. Network marketing is the best business when you talk about flexibility and the kind of money made with little capital, but if you start wrongly, you may be surprised how frustrating it will turn out.

You will know more than many who are into network marketing by reading this article today, but you will be at the same spot with them despite all that you know if you don’t take action today.

There is a big problem in network marketing, and many networkers don’t even know is a problem, but the top earners has identify it and start building themselves instead of the company they are promoting.

You have to realize that your business is much bigger than an MLM product or opportunity – which, in fact, is not real “businesses” at all. That’s right… Your Network Marketing business isn’t actually a real business, and here’s why…

  1. A real business cannot disappear or be taken away from you overnight. It has employees, contracts, and inventory.
  2. In a real business you have control and ownership of a core asset.

So let’s take a look at your MLM business.

As an independent distributor, you have zero control and zero ownership. You have a tentative contract with a networking company that can be ripped up at the drop of a hat, and often we have seen that happen.

This industry likes to sell people on the idea that their downline is an asset “you own and can even WILL to your children.” Well let me be frank with you… That’s 100 percent bullshit.

I have seen successful leaders in some companies in my country lose their distributorship due to one reason or the other. Years of work and millions of dollars were taken away in an instant.

If you think your downline is your asset, you need to wake up and read your distributor agreement.

The company owns it. If you doubt that, try to recruit your downline away into another opportunity and see what happens if in any way they find out. The reality is that you are a 100 percent commission-based sales rep who owns NOTHING, and by definition, “nothing” can’t be a business.

So how do you fix that?

Simple… You turn yourself into a business. You build your name as a brand in network marketing.

The skills that you’ve acquired to serve the needs of others or solve their problems and the relationships that you build by providing your value to the world become a real-life commodity that can be traded for money. So many people has a lot in their brain that can help the industry grow, but they waste it by promoting a particular company and releasing what they know to the company and the company use it to grow their network, and then turn back to show them that they don’t own the company with them when the chips are down.

This what they would have done

You, and the services you can bring to others as an individual, became your business.

The knowledge, leadership, and expertise in marketing and prospecting became your product.

The people who followed and consumed your work became your distribution channel.

The network marketing company you chose to promote to the people becomes your distribution network and also a single offer in the overall business model of your brand name.

Your downline or distributorship could disappear overnight and it wouldn’t matter because the primary asset, and all of the real equity, was located within you, your name, and the relationships you held with the people you served in the marketplace. Which means you and your business are now immune to outside circumstances and influences. No matter what happens in the marketplace, your business will remain intact and able to produce a profit as long as you want it.

BENEFIT OF BRANDING YOURSELF

The competition disappears forever; think about this for a minute

Any successful network marketing company will have 50,000-1,000,000+ distributors ALL OF THEM are marketing the exact same opportunity and products. Not only do you have to compete with over 1,000 other companies and opportunities in the market, and you also have to compete against the thousands of other distributors in your company.

To me, its looks like a crappy deal they are given us if you asked me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the network marketing industry because it has created a lot of millionaires and it is one of the businesses you can start with little capital to gain financial freedom if you put the work in. But a lot of people struggle in the industry because of the way they are building the business and it does not look as if the struggling will end soon because their upline is still teaching them the old way of building a network marketing business at this internet age.

As you start to understand the concept of BRANDING YOURSELF, you will see that its address the problem forever because you’re no longer selling a product or an opportunity, you’re selling yourself and the value you have to offer your team as a leader everyone will like to work with.

The best part in the whole scenario, there’s only one of you in the entire world, which means you have zero competition. Anyone that is providing value and leadership first will stand out in the crowd, you will become a voice of reason and a trusted advisor in a jungle filled with pitfalls and false promises.

As long as you hold yourself with integrity, people will tie their ship to yours and never let go, because you are oil that lubricate the network marketing world.

Every leader need to invest in their education to stay on top, I belong to a community that has showed me all I use in building my team today.

One of the places I started to learn how to do it the right way was inside MLSP.

Do these tips resonate with you? If so leave me a comment below as I would love to know. Also, if you get value, spread it around and share it with your fellow networkers through your social media account.

Four Steps to Success in Network Marketing Business

In every business there are steps to success in it and network marketing business is no different. Based on my experience in network marketing I have come up with four simple steps to success in network marketing and if followed religiously will make a star out of any dummy in network marketing.

Step #1 – Picture Your Success

In life you don’t get what you want, you only get what you picture.

If you can see your future by the picture you created of yourself without doubts in your heart about that great future in the picture you have in your mind, is only a matter of time for you to live in the reality of it.

Your dreams are the catalyst to your success in Network Marketing; they provide the pictures for your success. When you start to picture yourself living your dreams you will start attracting it minute by minute & your subconscious mind will find a way to make that dream a reality. Life & death is in the power of the tongue – the words you speak are directly connected to the pictures you see.

Most people get stranded because of their negative believe about network marketing, while some are because of the temporary defeat they had in their first network marketing company. There is no top earner in this industry that has not fail at one time or the other in their business, some fail many times than the other, but what kept them going is their dreams, the picture they have in their mind about what network marketing can offer to them and their family.

When you see any top earner in your company, just asked them about their early days in network marketing and you will be shocked to know how many times they have failed before they come up to be top earners in the business.

Step #2 – Find Out What You Are Willing to Give Up to Get What You Want

The deposit is first, the withdrawal comes later. You have to decide what you’re willing to give up temporarily in other to get what you picture. …success is not easy or convenient. However… success is very simple to obtain.

It’s not easy to build Network Marketing business, but it is SIMPLE. Everything in life is about giving & receiving, if you sow sparingly you will reap sparingly. If you give a lot you’ll get a lot – simple!

Are you willing to give up you sleep for the success you have picture in your mind, are you willing to give up watching your favorite television programs, are you willing to give up going to clubbing or the over spending lifestyle you have to build your business, are you willing to stop spending your time chatting on Facebook to doing income producing activities online.

What are you willing to sacrifice, just think deep and you will find what has been hindering you from doing the income producing activities that will make the picture in your mind a reality.

Step #3 – Pick a Mentor

There is an old saying that said: “If you ever want to become successful in life, find someone who’s done what it is you want to do & duplicate them.”

This is a very simple principle that has created many millionaires till date and that’s a principle that I live by even to this day. Find someone who’s been there, done what you are looking to do and who is willing to teach you how to do the same thing. Follow the path they are going to set for you a more realistic path to greatness because it has work for one and it will work for you also. Success is much more obtainable when you have someone who is more experienced than you are and who has accepted personal responsibility for your success in life.

Find out who in your company has the money & lifestyle you want, & build a relationship with them. Based on who they are, they may or may not be personally accessible to you, but you can still be mentored by them, just from a far. Whenever you see them talking either in a crowd or on stage always be prepared with your notepad & recorder, they are the simplest & priceless tools that will make you millions. If they have any paid training event, endeavor to attend as they dish out the principles that they have used in building their business in their paid training events.

Step #4 – Vision

Without vision, people will perish by replaying their pasts, with all its failures.

You must have a vision of where you are going with a definiteness of purpose, what you want to achieve, what you want to be remembered for, how many lives do you want to positively impact personally, professionally, spiritually and financially. It is the vision that will keep you going. Make sure your vision is big enough to keep you awake even when you want to sleep.

Have a success ride in your business

STOP Struggling in Network Marketing Business

It is no longer news that 97% of Network Marketers Struggle in their business. The big issue is how to Stop Struggling Networkers and give them the tools that will help them to join the 3% that are earning big with network marketing.

That is the reason why I wrote Stop Struggling in Network Marketing Business to point the way forward and save a lot of people from missing their way to financial freedom.

When we ask people to join our network marketing business we are asking them indirectly to SIGN UP for a career in “sales and marketing” – yet most people do not have any experience in sales and marketing.

The company you joined has products that need to be sold before you make money and you need to know how to make people join your business so you can make more money.

What your team leaders show you in every presentation is a beautiful lifestyle in a video or picture in a presentation slide, the compensation plan, how the products are the best in the world, and ask you to pick your pen and paper, write down the names of people you know and go after them because they are all your prospects.

With the excitement of what you saw in the video testimonial, you go out there working hard to live the same lifestyle you saw; only to find out you don’t even know anything on sales and marketing.

Some leaders don’t think about teaching their prospects marketing online and offline, they only told them to be focus, put more effort, and make sure you show the plan to many people every day without showing them HOW.

So why are we surprised when most of the honest, hardworking people on our team fumble around trying to make things happen… but never really seem to get ahead?

Why are we surprised when they quit after approaching everyone they know without a single signup or sale of the products they get when they signed up?

Why are we surprised they DO NOT want to follow up their friends and family?

Why are we surprised when they never really get started after they left the presentation with so much excitement and hope?

The reason is lack of marketing and sales skills which makes them to approach their prospects the wrong way.

As the LEADER of your team, YOU need to immediately embrace marketing, more especially Online Marketing (not prospecting!) and teach your team to do the same thing.

YOU need to lead the way by example; you need to figure out the way forward to teach your team how to go through the numbers.

Nobody will succeed in network marketing with his friends and family no matter how many people you may know; therefore you need a system to market to a large audience

YOU need to dig deep and be willing to master marketing, more especially online marketing because that is the only way you can go through the numbers as your market online is so big and they are willing to join your business.

YOU need to get in and start getting things done. Now!

The goal is to get everyone on your team earning at least $500 per month within their first 30-90 days. Max. If not, most will quit and your business will suffer greatly from attrition.

I know of a system with which you will get all the education you need in marketing, sales and MLM lead generation

I have been equipped to be the leader everyone wants to join in his business opportunity because of what I learned from this system and what I teach my team on how to be successful in their MLM business

You may be on this page because you want to know the Best Network Marketing Financial Success Tips or Strategies

To be a success in Network Marketing Business, below are the Three Best Network Marketing Success Tips I know

1. The Company:
It is critical for the success of a marketer to join a company that is sound and viable to avoid seeing your hope dashed before you even get started. Here are few points to consider:

Check the Leadership of the company,
How many years’ experience do they have in network marketing,
Is the company fully registered with the appropriate bodies

2. The Product:
Along with identifying a sound company it is also highly important to know about the product you have to market. Do you love the products and how is the efficacy of the product. Remember your success as a Network marketer also depends on the sales of the product you are offering.

Here are few questions to investigate:
• Is the product marketable?
• Do you like the product?
• Is it reasonably priced?
• Is the product consumable?
• Is there a demand of the product?

3. Marketing
After investigating the company and their products, the next thing is how to start marketing, how to sign up new reps and sell the products if you approve to be part of the company. This is where most network marketers miss it and this is the most important part of the business.
The overwhelming majority of network marketers fail because they cannot recruit any one or recruited the wrong people and they apply the wrong marketing strategies and tactics.

The whole process of building a large MLM downline and making $10,000 or more a month seems so easy to accomplish. And in theory, it is.

But unfortunately, the MLM industry is overflowing with illogical theories and silly marketing strategies that have proven to be absolutely worthless.

There is however, a single time-proven marketing strategy that has repeatedly earned distributors exceptionally large five-figure monthly incomes . . . incomes in excess of $10,000+ per month.
It is a simple and logical strategy known as “Attraction Marketing”

Attraction marketing is a system that allows you to position yourself as a leader or expert. It makes you to be the hunted not the hunter.
People that are interested in your business will contact you because you are the expert they are looking for.
As someone who is providing value and leadership first, you stand out in the crowd. You become a voice of reason and a trusted advisor in the jungle of Network Marketing that is filled with pitfalls and false promises.

I am New in Network Marketing, How can I be an expert? You may ask!

Attraction Marketing systems consist of a program or more that allow you to target your niche market audience with relevant content provided by the system, this system allows you to generate leads for your network marketing business. Leads are then passed through your affiliate funnel in the system, the system start giving them relevant information to tackle their problems through follow-up messages to their email and they will see you as the authority they can trust.

Most network marketers face the following two problems: lack of leads and lack of money.
A good attraction marketing system will solve both of these problems for your audience. Attraction marketing systems give your niche market audience solutions to problems they are having.
This system puts you in the position of “the hunted” and not “the hunter” because you will know more than your target market and they will want to learn at your feet.

As a network marketer wanting to share your business and products with others, I hope you can see the value in an attraction marketing system and jump at it today.

Where Can I get A Good Attraction Marketing System?

There is one Attraction Marketing system that most top earners in Affiliate and Network Marketing has made their home and you can too, if you want to be a top earner, it’s known as MLSP

This system is the most cost-effective way to market you and your products to your respective audience. Instead of pushing your MLM business on people, a good attraction marketing system allows you to pull potential customers and business owners towards you.
