One Controversial (Yet Highly Effective) Energy MLM Strategy

Let The Controversy Begin!

I was exhausted. Sick and tired of going to hotel meeting after hotel meeting trying to recruit my friends, family, and loved ones into my network marketing business. Heck I even missed an NFL playoff game last year to pitch a friend of mine, who ended up pitching me on his biz opportunity. Enough is enough, network marketing isn’t for everyone clearly. What if there was a better way to EASILY reach a super targeted audience that is 100% interested in your business? What if I told you that audience is right in front of you, recruiting dozens of individuals in one fell swoop is right in front of you, recurring monthly commissions right in front of you…

Here’s the controversial part. When I first joined an Energy MLM company a couple of years ago I quickly realized the opportunity wasn’t in the opportunity, the opportunity was selling valuable tools and resources within the opportunity. In other words, instead of going out and recruiting people into my Energy MLM business, I’d target people who were already in my MLM business with tools and resources to help them recruit more people into their business and thus grow their commission base. I quickly built a list of 1,000 leads and made way more money selling the tools and resources than I made within the opportunity.

Think about it, someone recruited you into your MLM business. I bet that either that person or whoever recruited them has a pretty large downline with the majority having trouble growing their business. If you could get a valuable training resource in front of your MLM leaders that would teach them how to recruit more easily and effectively AND get paid off of everyone they convince to purchase, wouldn’t that be awesome. Enter the Empower Network!

The Empower Network is currently being used by other MLM leaders as a training tool to help new recruits build their business. While it can certainly be a primary business, many people are using it as a complement to whatever MLM business they are currently in… and here’s why:

5 Reasons To Pitch The Empower Network Training To Your UPLINE

1. Valuable Recruiting Tool: The Empower Network system shows network marketers exactly how to recruit people from all over the globe into your business. No longer will you be bugging everyone you know to get in your opportunity. The Empower Network system shows you step-by-step how to capture customers online that are naturally looking for similar opportunities. Check out the video here!

2. Multiple Applications: You can use the system to recruit people into your specific business or simply to promote other affiliate offers. I personally use it to do both. I describe how I use it to promote certain trading products I like in my MarketClub post.

3. The Compensation Plan: The compensation plan is ridiculous. Through Empower you can make up to $125 recurring monthly for everyone who signs up plus one-time payments up to $3,500 immediately from Day One, check out the Compensation Plan Video Here!

4. High Conversions: It’s all about conversions. With multiple entry levels (starting at just $25), the value proposition here is a no-brainer. The 100% commission structure naturally entices individuals to join.

5. Available For Most Every MLM Business: Some MLM companies do not allow their members to advertise online. The Empower Network System allows you to collect leads without advertising your specific opportunity, thus you remain in compliance with your company’s internet marketing policy.

This Reverse MLM Strategy is so effective because you are just placing the opportunity in front of someone who has probably already built a sizeable downline, and if that person hasn’t built a downline, they will probably pitch it to the person who recruited them in and so on and so forth….Before you know it you’ve basically flipped the whole organization on its head and now you are at the top with proven recruiting leaders with large lists below you recruiting people into your Empower Network business. Go from complete newbie to a cash generating leader virtually overnight.

The Stream Energy Business Has Finally Been Exposed [TRUTH]!

Stream Energy is the gas and electric service provider affiliated with Ignite. The Ignite / Stream Energy value proposition is fairly simple; provide customers with a lower cost energy alternative with little to no switching costs. Stream Energy is able to supposedly charge less by not expending any resources on traditional marketing, instead opting to go the network-marketing route with Ignite. But does “Stream Energy” really offer lower rates for its Ignite Reps to market? Let’s take a look…

Stream Energy

Stream Energy – Rankings By State

Curious to see if I was really saving money by switching to Stream Energy I decided to do a little research. Instead of just concentrating on my state of residency I decided to check Stream Energy rates vs. the competition across all the states in which Stream Energy and Ignite do business. As of this posting Ignite Stream Energy are in the following States: Texas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.

Stream Energy – Texas Ranking (as of 12/27/2011)

A quick search across multiple Texas rate comparison websites yield no results for Stream Energy. Hmmm, why is Stream Energy not listed on Texas sites that compare electricity rates? You would think if the company had competitive rates they’d make sure they were included on sites like these. Hmmmmm.

Stream Energy – Georgia Ranking (as of 12/27/2011)

According to the Energy Shop website which lists a total of 9 natural gas suppliers in the State of Georgia, Stream Energy ranked first, meaning Stream Energy had the lowest natural gas rate in the state.

Stream Energy – Pennsylvania Ranking (as of 12/27/2011)

According to the PA Power Switch website Stream Energy currently ranks 20 out of 37 energy providers in the Philadelphia area. Price per kwH ranged from $0.0849 to $0.1060 and Stream came in at $0.0939.

Comparison results for both Maryland and New Jersey came up empty. So in the end I guess we’ll never know exactly how they compare or at least until the public demands fair disclosure.

Ignite Stream Energy reps basically can do a 1-to-1 comparison to attract customers into the fold in these cases. When it comes down to it Stream Energy should have lower rates versus the big, traditional energy companies because of the lack of marketing budget.

But My Energy MLM Biz Prohibits Internet Marketing…

The Ugly Truth About Marketing Your Energy MLM Biz

You’re probably not going to like what I have to say, but it needs to be said. You are not going to strike it big in your Energy MLM biz by simply contacting everyone you know and meet in person. There I said it. Sure you can make a nice little recurring revenue using this old model, and if that is your goal then you really don’t need to read any further. However if you really want to supercharge your Energy MLM Biz and take it to the next level, you need to utilize all the technology at your fingertips, most specifically the Internet.

But My Energy MLM Biz Doesn’t Allow Internet Marketing…

It surprises me (but I guess it really shouldn’t) that people hear this from many of the companies and basically just shut down, deciding not to even think about this alternative. We’ve received several emails from visitors of this site proclaiming my company doesn’t allow XYZ so why do you even talk about it on this site. Some even get upset and vow to never return. I GUARANTEE these people will never reach the levels they likely want to attain without using the Internet, and believe it or not YOU CAN use the Internet to promote your Energy MLM Biz IN ACCORDANCE with your company’s prohibited policy. I’m going to reveal 1 strategy below but I encourage to view a full range of alternatives in this video:

Internet Marketing Strategies For Your Energy MLM Biz

Read Your Energy MLM Biz Internet Marketing Policy

Are you allowed to tell your friends and family about your business via email? The answer is YES. Ok so now if you just had a list of people who may be interested in your business that you could email you’d be in good shape. So how do I reach these people without violating my company’s policy? Well if you think they’d be interested in your business then they are probably interested in your competitors as well…So what if you created a website that never mentioned your business specifically but targeted people who are considering your competitors who you name specifically? In other words what if you crafted a website that said “You Need To Read My Special Report If You Are Thinking About Joining ABC, XYZ, or DEF”. You never mention your company specifically on the website. If you get people to sign up to receive your free report, you can then email them SPECIFICALLY about how your company is better than the names you mentioned in your headline.

This is just one strategy, a very effective one at that, and one that you’ve likely already seen in action (hint, hint). If you are serious about making it in this business you need to start incorporating some of these tactics in your business.
