Discover Big Al's Most Powerful Sentence

As a master marketer and networker, I always like to keep an ear up to what Big Al Schreiter is up to.

So, in his recent "Big Al" report when he talked about his most powerful presentation sentence, I was intrigued.

Are you? If so, read on!

In Big Al's words:

My most powerful presentation sentence.


Every presentation is different. You can't just take a flip chart and read it to a prospect. That would set off every "salesman alarm" in the prospect's head. (If you don't know about the "salesman alarm" - check out
"How To Manipulate and Control the Minds of Others for Fun and Profit." to learn why this is important.)

You will be surprised how little your prospects want to know about your business. Some prospects only want to know about the compensation plan, some want to know about the product ingredients, some want to only know if the founders are honest.

And any time you spend explaining stuff the prospect doesn't want to know, you are boring your prospect and turning your prospect off.

So my most powerful presentation sentence?

Before I start explaining anything, I love to ask the prospect:

"So what would you like to know next?"

When I say this sentence, the prospect relaxes. He is now in control of the flow of information. No more pressure, and he feels respected. And I don't have to talk about all the things I think the prospect should know.

The presentation is always short and only explains to the prospect what the prospect wants to know.

Try this sentence and watch the difference in the tension level and the interest level of your prospect:

"So what would you like to know next?"

How to Use Twitter To Build Your MLM Prospect List

Hey, I just came across a very cool tip from Big Al on how to use Twitter to build a mlm prospect list.

He and Mark "Google Superman" Davis share what they did to get more prospects. Both think the internet is a great way to build a prospect list .

In their own words:

Internet prospecting using Twitter.com.

I am bored, sitting at home during the holidays. So my good friend, Coach Mark Davis, says, "Check out Twitter.com - it is a great way to feed and build a prospecting list."

Now, I've been to Twitter.com, used it, and I just don't "get it" - I can't figure out why anyone would want to know what you're doing right now. I mean, don't people have lives?

But I'm bored.

Mark and I go to Twitter.Grader.com to see how popular we are in Twitter. We rank around 31,000. That means out of about one million Twitter users, we are in the top 3% and we don't have any idea what we are doing.

We then did a little "trial and error" to see if we could get our Twitter.Grader.com rating up. In just a couple days we ranked about 21,000. Hmmm, so there is a science to this.

Now the best part is, the more "followers" you have on Twitter, the more prospects you have to feed your various prospecting lists. Cool. And how many of us would like a cost-free list of prospects that follow you, and you don't have to worry about spam filters?

This got to be fun, and we still only had a vague clue of how to use Twitter effectively. So we figured, this is a skill we should learn. So what am I doing this week?

Picking on Art Jonak and Lasse Rouhiainen to find out how to make Twitter work better. And of course I'm in competition with Coach Mark Davis to see who can get the higher ranking for "incompetence bragging rights." :)

Internet prospecting is a great way to get "live" prospects to talk to.

Want some more Internet prospecting hints?

Here is a no-cost 13-lesson mini-course. Hope you enjoy it.

How to Use Squidoo to Drive Traffic To Your Website

Do you Squidoo? Have you even heard of it? What is the significance of Squidoo in the world of Internet Marketing and even mlm? How do you use it to drive traffic?

Squidoo is a popular website for social networking. It's gaining popularity due to its wonderful features that enables a user to make his own lens or as commonly called pages in a simpler and more convenient approach. It's similiar to a blog, but you can do much more!

A lot of people from all over the world are going gaga with creating lenses of various topics using Squidoo. They even said it's addictive. I must say I have made 4 Squidoo lenses already and they are indeed right, it's enjoyable! I had fun making my lens and it's as easy as 1-2-3.

There are modules that you can use in making your lens. Just add, delete, or edit them without computer programming or HTML knowledge, you can produce your own page no matter what topic they are and how many lenses you want to create. You also have a chance to meet individuals or groups of lens masters if you create a Squidoo account.

Squidoo lenses are a great way to build relationships with people and provide them with content that is beneficial.

Some of the modules featured in Squidoo that will add more color and content to your lens are:

* Text Blocks - A space for your text/blog entries.
* Polls - Use them to have a close interaction with your viewers or if you have an interesting question or issue you want to raise use the polls for voting purposes.
* Youtube Vides - Yup! This is a module where you can insert/upload video powered by Youtube that is related to your topic. The video will be easily uploaded to your lens and you have the option to let Youtube pick the video or just select a video by yourself.
* New Links - This is where you put other related links.
* Amazon - a module where you can present products from Amazon which are also related to your page.

Driving Traffic

Creating a lens in Squidoo is just the first step in promoting yourself or your business online. Remember to write content that will benefit the lives of your audience and update it regularly so that they still have reasons to come back for more. Write content that is highly keyword optimized.

Once you have everything set up right, it's now time to introduce your lens to the world where your goal is to drive more traffic to your site.

* Visit the Squidoo page where they display the top lenses to gain ideas from these lensmasters. Examine the features and the content of the pages and see if you can incorporate some ideas to your future lenses.

* Brag about your lens. E-mail the link of your page or tell it to all your friends, classmates, co-workers, and even to your family members.

* Go to the groups page of Squidoo where you will find several groups under many different topics/areas. If you spot a group of likeminded people, introduce yourself immediately, make friends and promote!

* Include some tips or advice in your articles/posts to attract more visitors and make sure they are clearly presented (with the use of bullets/numberings) for a more digestible reading.

* Log on to related blogs or forums, post a comment, introduce yourself, participate in the discussion, and don't forget to leave a link to your site. Ask for a link exchange also to build your social network.

* Install a Squidoo toolbar to your mozilla firefox as a free add-on to your browser where you can bookmark your lenses or other user's lenses that you like.

Have fun creating your first Squidoo lens!

Knowing Your Traffic and Why Not All Traffic is Equal

Have you ever wondered why some sites are successful online, and why some sites fold up after only a few days of being out in the open? This includes mlm websites. Have you ever wondered how the successful sites manage to get so much traffic despite the crowded Internet marketplace, and despite the fact that there are so many sites that are almost exactly like these successful sites? And have you ever wondered why some people decided that they should stop running their websites and instead find other day jobs?


Traffic is the currency of the online arena, and it is an important aspect of Internet marketing. This is simply because full and in depth analysis of it will spell either the success or failure of a site. In general, web developers and website designers of successful websites know exactly what their traffic is all about: they are able to differentiate between useful and useless traffic information, and they are able to use their traffic statistics in order to make their sites better. On the other hand, the web developers and website designers or less-than-successful, or even mediocre websites do not pay attention to the details of traffic and will instead tend to rest on their laurels simply because it seems as though they have a lot of visitors and hits.


The long story can be summed up in these few words: not all traffic is equal. Having a thousand hits to your mlm website only means that a thousand of your files were accessed by remote servers when people were viewing your website. If you have a lot of pictures on your website, or software that can be downloaded, each of the pictures, software, or anything that is not a text element on a web page will be counted as a hit. A hit is therefore not an accurate measure of web traffic, and should therefore not be used when analyzing the success of a website.


Instead, try relying on three major kinds of web traffic: unique visitors, referrals, and search strings. With your site, make sure you are personal, tell stories, and have lots of things to benefit your visitors so they will keep coming back.

Unique visitors are the people who come to your website, and this number is the most accurate when you consider how many people arrive and look at what you have to offer. However, be wary: search engine robots and spiders are also considered visitors, so if you see visits made by bots or spiders, they cannot be counted in favor of traffic for you.


A list of referrals in your web traffic statistics will simply tell you how people get to your site. This list may contain information on blogs that are linked to you, or sites that might have links to you and may have served as the jumping-off point for people to get to you. On the other hand, a list of search strings will contain a list of search engine queries that led people to your site: this can help you understand what keywords are being picked up in your site. If you know what these keywords are, then you can maximize on other keywords that might be of interest to your target market.


These are only a few aspects of web traffic that you might want to think about. Remember, not all traffic is good, and never rest until you have completely analyzed your web traffic. For more information, talk to software engineers and web designers in order to completely understand the intricacies of this online arena.

Free Network Marketing Information-How to Use Web Content Writing to Drive MORE Traffic tYour Website

Today's free network marketing tip has to do with how to drive more traffic to your mlm website for free.

Search engines are all about content so what better way to increase the number of traffic to your website than by providing high quality content writing that is relevant to the needs of whatever mlm niche your company's products or services would serve well.

However, article writing is the challenge that most webmasters and networkers face. However, if this is the case for you then you need not worry. There are various ghost writers on the internet who can write these articles for you; you can have exclusive rights for it and even put your name on it if you wish.

There are some rules you need to follow when you want to have content on your website that is suitable for search engine optimization purposes. For example, you need to research about the keywords that most people type on search engines. Then you'll need to integrate these keywords in the article itself . There is an ideal keyword density required. You should never try to fool search engines by spamming the article with keywords because your site will only get penalized. Instead, you should place the keywords in well-placed positions within the article such as the headline, as well as first and the last paragraphs.

Aside from writing great content for your website though, there are many other uses for your articles. You can submit these articles to various article directories and ezines so that a greater number of people can view them. These tools also offer a resource box at the end of the article; you can put your name as well as your website there. Inevitably, this will increase your site traffic especially if the visitor is interested in learning more about the topic.

Content articles will also improve your link popularity. When other webmasters see that your site is doing well because of the kind of content you have, they will be encouraged to link to you. Right now, getting relevant links will also increase your search engine ranking because of your improved page rank. In addition, content writing has the potential to stay forever on the internet and generate a lot of traffic as well as revenue for you. So the key to driving a lot of traffic to your mlm website is through creating quality articles that have timeless information. Imagine generating passive revenue ten years down the road because of the effort you put into creating content articles today. There are certainly many benefits you can derive from having quality content, it is no wonder then that internet experts always emphasize that content is king.

If you would like access to two training calls that teach you exactly how to write your own articles and to get them on the first page of Google, feel free to contact me and I will send the calls to you for free.

I hope you have enjoyed this free network marketing information tip!
