Internet Marketing has evolved over the years from a way to create a home based business into a beast that seems to be filled with the have’s and the have not’s. All too often I receive story after story from people who’s hopes and dreams have been dashed at an expensive cost. Retirement funds… depleted, credit cards… maxed out, and debt at a time when financial stability in the market place is teetering on recession.

In a sea of Internet Marketing shams, scams and greed there is a single voice, a quiet business changing the face of how business is done here on the Internet. They are putting an end to the elitist MLM pyramid schemes and have found a way to generate Long Term Residual Income and wealth creation, if you join their team. The Marketing group is simply called Its Good Business and is helping the individual by using a buy customers business model; for the first time, an individual can build a real business online. The residual income potential is eye opening and the financial calculator provides a realistic income potential over the long term.

The key to any good business online or off is to obtain customer market share. This is the heart of Its Good Business wealth creation and long term residual income. The Marketing Group works in teams separated into categories of SEO and lead generation, Blogging, Press release and finally Sales. Each individual who joins Its Good Business gets to excel at what they do best but receives the benefits of others talents in their field of expertise and passion. Its Good Business also trains their people to become complete marketers and business entrepreneurs by providing information on how to properly use search engine optimization, blogging; etc…. to help each member grow their future.

What this means is you don’t have to do it all. The team as a whole does. Its Good Business even has a sales team who does nothing but provide information to interested parties and help them join the group. The key here is individuals get strategic placement based on their skills and the groups line gets filled. No one had to make a cold call, recruit or buy a lead in order to grow. The only requirement is buying customers which create long term residual income for the life of the business relationship from this Quiet Business.

Some may try and undersell and over promise this opportunity because it sounds too good to be true. Do not allow this to happen to you. Its Good Business’s financial calculator is based on joining their group and following their marketing plan. Only then will you find the success you are looking for, speak with a representative or attend an information session on any given Saturday at 1pm PST and see for yourself. There is no pressure, no sales pitch and no recruiting. Its Good Business whishes to only offer information on how you can become successful and break free from the MLM bastardization of your dreams.

The continued struggles of the banking industry to stabilize itself
concerns many who have invested for years in 401k’s, the stock
market etc… in hopes of  long term residual income upon their
retirement.  The latest news shows that many institutions are still
reeling from over extending loans and credit debt.

“The Fed has been holding auctions to supply direct loans to
commercial banks every two weeks since December.

In addition to the auctions which supply loans for 28 days to
commercial banks, the Fed announced last month that it was
employing Depression-era provisions to allow investment banks
to borrow directly from the Fed. Previously, only commercial banks
had that privilege.”

Many of us are facing the uncertainty these challenging economic
times offer with trepidation.  Concerns are growing in this climate
the investments and savings we thought were once secure for our
retirement years are now in question. Others who thought they
could depend on those long term residual investment funds are
losing their 401k’s by getting edged out of their jobs for younger
lesser paid replacements and have no security to fall back on.

“Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said on
Tuesday the U.S. economy was in recession, and said it would
be appropriate to tap public funds to resolve the mortgage-related
crisis that has helped pull the economy under Greenspan went
farther than the Fed has by saying outright that the economy is
in a recession, although he said it is too soon to say how deep
or prolonged the downturn will be.

“Consumers are beginning to shrink in, the automobile markets
are beginning to contract, production is beginning to ease, and
we are in the throes of recession,” he said.

“I think if you’re going to deal with a situation like this it’s an issue
for appropriated funds of the Treasury to set up something like the
Resolution Trust Corporation, which as you remember was very
successful in resolving the S&L crisis,” Greenspan said.

The RTC was set up to liquidate assets of troubled savings and
loan associations that had been declared insolvent by the Office
of Thrift Supervision. It operated between 1989 and 1995 and
closed or helped resolve hundreds of thrifts, many of which had
gotten into trouble through sloppy lending practices.”

There is however an opportunity for growth that is ready to
explode where long term residual income can be secured. The
time is ripe for the Internet business entrepreneur.  MLM as it
has been known more for its pyramid schemes of that past, is
quickly becoming a legitimate home based business opportunity.
One example is the book published by Donald Trump and Robert
Kiyaski “Why We Recommend Network Marketing” which advises
the vast opportunity that is out there, if you find the right Internet
Business.  One such group making great strides in securing incredible
residual income is the “IGB” ItsGoodBusiness Group.  Focusing on
the investing in purchasing already paying customers instead of
spending dollars on dead end leads and over saturating their
opportunity marketing to other marketers as was the norm, is
sending savvy entrepreneurs right to IGB’s doorstep.

I was sitting in a room with Inetekk CEO Tom Prendergast and we were discussing his new marketing concept and venture ItsGoodBusiness.net  He shared with me his vision and passion that is his new business.

Why “It’s a good business”. I have been in the MLM market since 1992. I have seen them come and go. I have watched the potential leadership of many men and women destroyed by unprofessional and corrupt MLM businesses. I have seen the frustration of many who deserve great success and have that potential constantly allude them.

I own an MLM business. It took 12 years to build it. We waited until 3 years ago to launch it as a 3 level affiliate program. We built it on integrity not hype. It mostly has customers, not distributors. This set me to thinking.

So I started to analyze why so many MLM’s grow so quickly then eventually collapse into obscurity. That reason is they lacked customers. The entire organization is sales people looking for more sales people. It was a shocking revelation and this is the reason so many buy the promise of financial independence only to watch their organizations eventually collapse.

This is why you see many potentially successful and capable individuals time and time again jump from one program to another. And doing so, they eventually are relegated to obscurity as their sphere of influence is destroyed by all the broken dreams and dashed hopes of those that at one time trusted them.

This is why, the pressure to never stop recruiting exhaust even the most stalwart individuals. This is why that most of the MLM companies constantly pound the drums to never stop recruiting. This is why so many marketers have given up. This is why, this is my personal calling and crusade. This is why the entire MLM industry is about to get an eviction notice via the Internet!

I have experienced this frustration first hand. However, I really am on the periphery of this phenomena destroying peoples credibility, because I was engulfed in building the 12 years of technology that is Veretekk. So I have only joined a few stinkers in that time. Globalwon and Exeler8. What a waste of time! And I experienced the growth then collapse on one and saw the righting on the wall with the later and quickly quit it and refunded the money to all the people I had recruited. Ouch!

But this is not about Veretekk. This is about a beacon of light in this MLM Sea of despair. This is about an MLM company I joined in October 2001. I was hesitant at first, but my good friend, Ricardo Ferrari, flew me to go see the company and meet them. There was something about them that was different. That difference was subtle and obscure. The difference was, this company had real customers. So I spent about 3 months building that business, and then had to stop because of a divorce and the massive demand on my time to build the Veretekk code. During those 7 years, my business with this MLM Company continued to grow, with no involvement from me whatsoever.

Just recently I have the time to get back to that business. As I was assessing why the difference, why did this MLM continue to grow while the others always failed, it hit me. Because in this MLM my organization was 95% pure customers not looking to make money, but real customers that just keep buying the products.

And this revelation is what inspired me to produce the Its Good Business Flash found at http://itsgoodbusiness.net.

In less than 3 weeks my new leg has grown over 700 members. And the growth is increasing every day. I have never seen happier marketers as I have in this new leg. They understand that with this company in which I am a reluctant leader in, they really do have a future because they understand they are building a real customer base that given time will produce an income they can rely on. In this new leg I have professional business people that see this as an investment, not another concocted stupid MLM attempt to drain the pockets of the hopeful masses. In this leg we have cohesion and delegated harmony. There is no stress in this company, because It’s Good Business”!

With the economic climate as volatile as it is, where do you turn to invest in your retirement?

Where can you feel secure investing your retirement savings?

The events of Bear Stearns is quite possibly the beginning of a recession states former
Treasury secretary Allen Greenspan and Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin last week described the situation as “uncharted waters”. The news in the Wall Street Journal is bleak.

These are trying times and many will take a financial hit in one way or another.

Statistics show that all too many of us are in debt with little or no way to get ahead.
What can you do to secure your retirement is one of comfort?

I’m Corie Wallace, an Internet Marketing Strategy Specialist, I am just like you. I find myself asking those very questions and trying to prepare for what may lay ahead.

Look folks, I’m not here to try and sell you anything. I’m just trying to give you information that can help you create long term residual income to secure you and your family’s future.

Research online, see all the opportunities out there asking you to buy leads, asking you to buy traffic? Where has any of that produced positive results of any substance? I bet very little if any. I know, I’ve been there. All I ended up with was less cash at the end of the month.

Clearly a poor choice to invest funds in hopes of gaining long term residual income.

What if there was a way to ensure long term residual income without having to take a chance on the stock market at this treacherous time. What if you could feel secure in creating interest on your investment that would be constant, no interest rate drops, simply growth, in fact growth that you yourself could control?

There is such an opportunity to secure your long term residual income success. The concept is in buying customers, yes buy an already existing customer base to grow long term wealth and residual income for your retirement years that is secure. Doesn’t
that make a lot more sense then throwing you hopes and dreams away during a time of such uncharted waters?

Itsgoodbusiness.net can show you how to create a successful long term income through buying customers, not selling, not buying leads, no cold calls ever again.

Internet Businesses find New Ways to build revenue

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not
dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in
our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business.
He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing
us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. – Mahatma Gandhi

Customers are the key to business success, yes even on the Internet.

All too often I see lead generating services asking you to pay
astronomical prices for leads they claim are quality, one of a
kind exclusive leads.

Well, we all know that isn’t the case, what’s really going
on is people are capturing other peoples addresses and
regurgitating them out as new. Or, so called qualified leads
that really are just some survey some person filled out,
clicked the box “I’m interested in a home business” just
to get some $500.00 gift card to the local sizzler. And
how much do these “qualified” “targeted” leads go for in
the market place? I’ve heard easily $200.00 a month for
10,000. Your buying junk that is unqualified, soliciting
and marketing to deaf ears. I’m sorry to have to be the
one to tell you this, but thats pretty much how it works.

Now, If there was a way to invest back into your home
based business and receive residuals in return for that
investment guaranteed, that would be worth something.

Internet Marketing is changing, we can only sell to each
other for so long until we are tired and fed up. Lets not
forget the predators out there waiting to pounce on the
newbie as they enter the Internet Marketing Social scene.
No wonder so many are beat up, skeptical and thinking small,
who can you trust?

There is a new age upon us, cooperative business models
where you can invest and purchase customers, customers
who are already buying thus guaranteeing a return on your
investment. It’s almost like purchasing a CD, you invest
your hard earned cash and receive high interest for it.
Seems to me to be a no brainer. The ability to buy customers
and never buy leads again is here. The amount of time you
spend processing the needs of a customer are far less than
trying to recruit someone into your business to sell for you.
The old way of depending on someone else to increase your
sales and market share is going no where. Invest your time
into an educational program like Its Good Business where
you can learn and understand the concept of buying customers
and never buy leads again. The small Internet home based
business entrepreneur needs the opportunity to get ahead
without going into the red before they even get started.
Our industry needs to grow and attract more business minded
people and increase the types of opportunities available in my
humble opinion.

The MLM market as we know it today, is over saturated, over
priced and quite possibly elitist. Very few earn an income
that can achieve the success to self sustain them. Buying
existing satisfied customers who are already purchasing product
allows everyone to earn and grow at their own pace. This
practice has been implemented quietly for years now, but is
growing as Its Good Business educates the masses. Although
this is an unusual approach, it has all the ear marks of a new
business building success plan for the Internet Marketing
Entrepreneur.

e-mail, e-Marketing… EGADS!

February 21, 2008

I am slowly beginning to dread the sound of my “email alert”.

Dread you say?  Oui Oui mon frer.

I have always been interested in how others choose to market their
products and opportunities.  In the beginning I read every e-mail I
received.  Foolish?  Perhaps.  I felt it was better to learn what to do
as well as what not to do when creating my promotional marketing
pieces.  After all, I am keenly aware that the person on the other
side of the screen who’s receiving my e-mail, doesn’t know me from
a hill of beans and couldn’t care less what I’m selling.

Psssst, they’re too busy selling their own stuff.

Let’s face it, most of us have a “system” that helps us send out mass
e-mails to contacts, (if you don’t, contact me I’ve got a few suggestions
to help you choose what would be best for you), but hey, if you don’t
have the time or gumption to write an original letter about your business
opportunity why would I choose to join your affiliate program, your new
business opportunity or take the time to opt in to your newsletter?

In other words, what are you saying by what you send out in your emails?

People wonder why they don’t succeed in their attempt at creating a home
based business on the Internet.  Many times it’s right here, in the beginning. They are not treating it like a business.

Imagine yourself walking into someone’s office, let’s say it’s a cold call or
your very first appointment with them.  Would you walk in, drop off a piece
of literature and say “buy this stuff “ and walk out?  How many sales would
you make that way?  A big fat goose egg! Nada, Zilch, yes folks, Zero sales.

But, I see it every day in my e-mail box, e-Marketers saying “hey, check out
my site … oh, and join!”  What aren’t they doing here?  EVERYTHING.

Basic selling skills 101: Introduce yourself.  Start building a relationship.
When writing your copy for your emails, write them in a sequence, a building up of the opportunity.  This way people get to see who you are, what you are about, why you feel strongly about your product, that your passionate about it and why it’s a good business opportunity for them.

You can splash your url for your biz-op all over the place… I wont be clicking it unless you can tell me why you think it’s a great business opportunity for me to invest my money in.  Oh and another thing, just because it’s free, doesn’t make it a good choice.  No opportunity is free forever.  If it is, how would anyone get paid!

One last thing in this rant before I go, article and letter builders; how many of you receive e-mails Marketing and selling something and it is identical to
someone else’s?  I mean identical down to the subject header !!!??  Come on folks, remember I said original content here.  I’m not going to read Joe’s, Mary’s and Tom’s if they are the same letter.  I got it once, I don’t need it 10 times!

Good copy is hard work, it takes time and effort.  But the only key to success in e-mail marketing, is to get the person to open your marketing piece and read it.  It’s your first impression, your opportunity to succeed or fail is right there.  So please, treat it that way.

“Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character;and character fixes our destiny.” – Tyron Edwards

I know I’ve spent a lot of time on the sales aspect of internet marketing. It’s what I love to do best! But I think it’s time we take a step back for a minute and evaluate what we do here. There are many different opportunities in network marketing and many different ways to sell them. The most important thing you can do is find something that you are passionate about, something that you get excited about and that personally interests you for starters. What we do can be very tedious at times, if we are not enjoying what we are marketing, it becomes difficult to write about, talk about,or stay self motivated.

As I continue to learn and grow here in Internet Marketing Wonderland..
I have
found myself part of several groups where there a teams working
together on
specific opportunities, usually, these rooms go silent. Why
you ask? Because
the few carry the weight of the rest and at some point the give and take becomes all about taking. Clearly these “takers” are out of their element, overwhelmed and unable to grasp the opportunity they are in. Their motivation for being involved? Purely to get rich quick with out any
effort. They never succeed
and end up running around bashing the program they invested in. But what they didn’t invest in it… was their time. Time is the most costly and valuable commodity we put into our online businesses. It is something, unlike a 9-5 job, that doesn’t pay when you start out. You must leverage your time in order to gain income in the future. So choosing what excites you instead of how much it pays is very important. Trust me, if you put in the time,you will see an income.

Ask yourself these questions when considering an opportunity.

Can I see myself talking about this in a positive manner for years to
come?

Can I imagine myself walking into someone’s office and presenting this
as an
opportunity that can grow their business and make them money?

Is my motivation with this opportunity to build a steady income or to
get
rich quick irregardless of the consequences?

Is it something that I can sell outside of the internet if given the
opportunity?


What kind of company am I aligning myself with?

If you are considering an opportunity, do your homework in regards to
the reputati
on of the company you are considering investing in. Once you opt in, you become the face of that company to your customers and prospects. It’s your reputation that is on the line not theirs. If you don’t choose wisely, you can destroy your internet business in a heart beat representing something that over promises and under delivers.

Be wary of this. Think long and hard about this point. Trust me, if it sounds too good to be true… it is.

All the questions I asked you to consider point to two things,longevity and reputation. Both are things that involve you. If one gets caught up in the big pay out, realize that it is very very hard to get someone to invest that kind of money and what true substance does that program really provide in return? Do you have people already interested in wanting to invest that kind of sum? If you do,then maybe it’s a good opportunity. If you don’t, how easy do you think it will be to get a return on your investment. I know a person who has been Network Marketing on the internet for over a decade, bought into a program that has a 2k price tag on it. You know the kind, where you have to drag people to a cyber call in to listen to a someone say “buy my program, I and only I can teach you the way to make money on the internet. If you cant sell this program you aren’t a closer and you need me to do it for you. All for the price of 2 THOUSAND DOLLARS!”

If after a decade you don’t have a base that can invest 2k, why on earth would you choose that opportunity? You’re setting yourself up for failure.

On the other hand, if you look at opportunities that are affordable
investments
cash wise, interest and excite you, odds are in the long run you would’ve made 2k in a decade. My poor associate is still waiting for that big sale. He spends all his time in social networks trying to get people to attend this call.

Eventually, if it hasn’t happened already, he will be known as the guy
who wants
you to spend 2k. His reputation will be in the cyber toilet.

Always opt for something that you see a value in, that you can be proud
of and
most importantly that you believe in. Your sales techniques
will improve at
an incredible rate if you know why you invested, what positives you see and what growth potential you believe there is.

Yes folks, it really is that simple. You just needed to hear it. Corie Wallace, EzineArticles.com Basic Author
