Who is the right candidate to become a network marketeer


Network marketing is not for everyone.  It takes a special kind of person with a certain desire for FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE and SELF RELIANCE who wants to break free from the old 9 to 5 box and the security of a paycheck.

While such people are profit maximizers and ambitious they are also very hardworking, love people and posses an entrepreneurial DNA.

Watch my talk with Bess McCarty on who qualifies to be a network marketeer.

Setting up online meetings


One of the most powerful features of your AIO is your scheduler.   Setting up meetings from your office with other AIO members sends a clear message that you are ready to seek new opportunities, discuss business potential and take the relationship to the next level.

We created this tool as a means for you to reach out faster and on a persona level.

To use it simply visit a members AIO, click on a specific date on their calendar date you wish to have a meeting on and a screen will appear where you can set a title of meeting, fix a start and end duration for the meeting and identify a time zone so both parties are in sync depending on your time zones.

It’s simple to use and very effective so you won’t miss another meeting ever again.

Try it out for yourself.

Once you have added all the other components within your AIO such as creating a video channel with content, uploading marketing material and adding products and services you can start introducing yourself to other AIO members and start expanding your network by setting appointments for a chat session, a voice chat or if you are in the same city a face to face meeting.

We truly hope you will have GREAT success on AIOconnect and now through your personal AIO can build a professional point of presence in the new MEconomy that demands high performance, rewards dedication and hard work and over time will help you build a POWER BRAND that revolves around YOU.

 

Your passion is in you,
turn it into a BRAND using AIOconnect

 

Business Networking from a single point of contact


In this section I want to talk to you about target messaging.  Not every post, every message, every thought every image, every video fits all of your social platforms the same way.   The second part is BRANDING.  When you post a message you are in fact leaving a “digital foot print” of yourself with the aim of leaving a track so others can find you on the world wide web.  And the third component of target messaging is pulling eyeballs to a single “point of contact” or “contact destination” and that’s exactly what we have created within your AIO.

The first advantage of your AIO message board is your internal twitter like feed where you can post comments on your AIO office board and have others who are connected to your network see and engage with you.  When you post a comment your network will receive an email.

The second advantage is access to AIOconnect industry groups where you can join and leave messages so other AIO members who are NOT in your network can see your posts and connect with you.

And the third part of the message board is your ability to post messages across other social networks namely Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

All three are designed in a way to increase your marketing reach and business visibility while leaving a professional impression of yourself on the internet.

The distinction between AIOconnect message board and other social media platforms is twofold, a) we are business focused with a network of “REAL” users and zero fake ID’s and bots.  And b) all of your communication, engagement and connections are “transaction” focused meaning people who visit your AIO have a desire to engage in some form of business with you as opposed to other platforms that are more focused towards sharing news content, leaving personal posts and commenting that generally speaking is a waste of time since there is no integration within their structures that offers an opportunity to buy or sell a product or service instantly.

The more clicks you add to an online relationship the less likely people will be inclined to pursue a deal which is why AIOconnect is so powerful as a marketing, communication and commerce platform.  We have kept things simple, functional and user friendly all from a single point of contact.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

e-Commerce in one click using AIOconnect


One of the powerful features that makes us uniquely different than all other platforms is our seamlessly integration of PayPal, the worlds leading online payment gateway, in to your AIO.

This integration allows you to list products and services and transact instantly with speed, convenience and greater online security without buyers having to jump through hoops.   All that is required is for both you and your buyers to have a PayPal account set up.  It’s that simple.

At present no other solution exists on the market that empowers the individual to become their own commercial center because either the portals like Amazon, eBay and Alibaba are too product centric or social networks like Facebook and twitter are too content focused.   And platforms like Shopify require backend integration that has its own headaches.   Let’s also not leave out platforms such as Fiverr and freelancer that take a hefty percentage out of every transaction, which is something we don’t do.

At AIOconnect we understand the synergy between branding, customer leads generation and sales and if the transaction gateway is missing the first two activities won’t lead to a desirable ROI which is why we added the final solution to the Golden Rules of eBusiness which are:

  • Find me (search engine optimization, WOM, content distribution, build awareness)
  • Trust me (become a credible, reliable and respected industry authority)
  • Buy from me (take the relationship to a transactional level)


“Buying happens when the value you offer is more than the price you charge.”

Let’s get in to the mechanics

Step one.  Create a category name

Step two.  Click on the category name to upload a product.

A screen will appear where you will need to fill in the following details

  • Product name
  • Product description
  • You can add a explainer video URL from YouTube or Vimeo OR an image that clearly shows the offering.
  • Add price, click the save button and you are ecommerce enabled.

Step three.  Go to your AIO account manager setting and make sure your PayPal email is correct.  This is vitally important because without it transactions will not go through.

As we are leveraging PayPal as a payment gateway each time a transaction is completed you will be notified via email.  All of the information between the buyer and the seller (you) will be logged on your PayPal account and you can always contact the customer for further details and follow ups.

NOTE: Here is the best part unlike other transaction portals that charge anything between 5% to 40% in transaction fee, we take ZERO so 100% of the profit is yours.  We are just the facilitator and we are proud and happy to play our part.

Organize content with clear access to information


We live in an attention grabbing world.  Whoever can demand attention, direct attention and HOLD attention WINS.  It’s that simple.

But you are probably asking, where is this attention coming from.  The answer is GOOGLE.  90% of people who are on the internet are searching for content related to their NEED.   From healthcare related search, to interior design, to cooking to education to fashion to automobiles to you name it people are looking information so they can then take ACTION.

Now the question is how do you draw attention to you and your business if your mission is to first and foremost build TRUST.

Well, as we discussed earlier it’s done through “CONTENT” which has two parts, what you create (text, image and video) and how you headline, organize, and distribute it.

Many internet marketing professionals will talk to you about the importance of content creation, which is tremendously important, as the content you produce will ultimately define who you are and determine the quality of people you attract.   But what I would argue is that second to the type of content you create HOW you make the information available within reach is equally, if not, more important.  Here is why.

Let’s say you’ve created the most amazing brochure in the world with the best product description and special offer BUT no one sees it.  What good will it do for you and your bottom-line?   Now on the other hand what would happen if you headlined that brochure with a catchy title and organized it in a way that was accessible to anyone who visited your AIO.   Or better yet you were able send out a message to your social network and asked them to come and download the file from your AIO instantly and in the brochure there was a special offer that if the viewer acted upon it they would get a special relationship bonus?   What a way to make someone feel special, right!

This is a key feature we focused on so our members can organize their content in the best possible way and share information in the most effective way from a single point of contact.

We call this the “Push Pull” system using content sharing with purpose.  Let’s go through the file cabinet system so you can get a good feel for its resourcefulness.

 

Setting up your file cabinet

Your file cabinet acts as your personal hard drive with private and public setting.

The first step after clicking on the file cabinet icon is to create a “category”.  The category is basically a methodology to organize your files so when you want to notify others where to search for your documents they will be able to access the information in a time efficient manner.

Depending on your business and line of work you can create various categories but avoid creating ONE category and dumping all the files into one space.

An ideal setup from our experience is to create between 4 to 6 categories and within each category add between 2 to 4 files.   You don’t want to overwhelm your visitors and you can always update your categories and files at any time as you post fresh content.

The best format for uploading content is obviously PDF and JPG as its easier to read both on laptop computers as well as on mobile devices.

Once you have created a category name and saved it you will need to click on the category and upload a file.  It’s that simple.

Once the file is uploaded you will see the “Lock” icon.   We have added this private feature so in case you wanted to upload a personal file or create a personal category you can do so.  Upload your documents onto your virtual hard drive and “lock” it for your own viewing.    If the icon is left unlocked (which is the default setting) it will be available for public access and for public download.

Type of Categories I would suggest are:

  • Public Relations – for uploading press releases
  • Marketing Brochure – for company bio / product descriptions / promotions etc.
  • Business Cards – Contact details
  • Presentations – seminar talking points, product user guides etc.
  • Articles & white papers – industry specific knowledge sharing that makes you an authority figure.
  • Special offers – this will help you pull in prospects and offer incentives to establish a relationship with you.

The type of content you post helps build credibility, trust and ultimately opens the door to new business opportunities so keep posting fresh content, encourage your network to visit your file cabinet often and as you start your journey on AIOconnect be patient yet consistent in your approach to content generation as you build up credibility via our algorithm that is search engine optimized.

Nature of Content Matters

Right now millions of people are posting content across social media that is “self-serving interest” and only feeds the ego which in business terms means the energy these people are using to generate such content may only serve in “entertainment value” at best but not necessarily be of “benefit” to end users.  There is a distinction.

Content with a benefit offers solutions, has purpose, is memorable, solves a problem and is “user focused”.  “Self-serving” content on the other hand is trivial information and serves a momentary pleasure, generates a laugh or amusement, and is quickly forgotten.   The most important characteristic of trivial content is that it is unable to influence or persuade others to make a business decision neither will it help you build “trust value” and open up the possibility of establishing a business relationship.

If you look at content being produced on social media I can guarantee it’s either self-centered to feed the ego or its very “Newsy” and most often it’s a URL link passed forward rather than created.  Sharing information about your dog, cat, friends, making a social observation, being pissed off or happy and sharing an emoji won’t help you build a BRAND in the new MEconomy.   Neither will creating a fraudulent lifestyle impressions that over time will wither away.  So many people are standing in front of multimillion dollar homes or sitting behind stacks of cash in hopes of trying to pass themselves off as successful on to rip people off.  DON’T DO IT.  It will backfire and hurt you.

On the other hand, having thousands of likes that don’t impact your bottom line are also irrelevant.  It’s all pointless activity.  Entertaining others is not the same as BRANDING especially when there are so many bots and fake ID’s out there.
So what do you “really” need to do?

You need a complete new approach with a new mindset.   Here are a few tips on how to construct content for business.

  1. Focus on posting content that demonstrates your industry insight
  2. Be solution oriented and solve problems
  3. Be engaging by taking questions and answering your audience by name. It shows commitment and care.
  4. Invite others to participate in the problem solving process and you will make a lot of relevant connections that will expand your network reach.
  5. Don’t hate the haters, stay calm and answer them rationally. In cyber space bad responses create a negative digital footprint and you don’t want that.
  6. Lead your audience to your AIO point of sale through your content road map.
  7. Stay relevant and over time people will turn to you as a thought leader & influencer

 

KEY NOTE – your time spent creating content MUST have a direct correlation with your income.  If you keep this formula in mind and you won’t lose focus.  This way you can measure the effectiveness of your content from the engagement and responses you get.  Use your content as a call to action which is then used to convert readers into buyers on your AIO and use every sale as a reference to create further testimonial content which demonstrates “BRAND superiority”.   Be persistent and play long.
