Your Weekly Legend for December 31st-January 6th

Happy New Year! 

It’s that time of year where most of us are doing some level of reflecting on the past 12 months and what we want out of the next year. 

Are you possibly thinking about regrets? The what if’s? The could have’s? 

Well…the past is done. 

We can spend our time focused on what we have zero control over at this point, or we can dive into what we need to do in 2024 to turn our “What if’s” into ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY.

What if you made 2024 the year of YOU?

I saw a recent post that asked to name the most important people in your life, and if you didn’t list yourself…you should. 

What if this was the year where YOU’RE the main event

It's time to kick things up a notch and make this year all about what YOU want to do.

Go after the goals YOU want to achieve.

Step into the greatness YOU’VE been wanting. 

And hey, if someone says that's being selfish, just give them the ol' eye roll.

Because guess what? 

That eye roll, that negative comment they are throwing at you is more about THEIR limiting beliefs.

It’s more about them being the crab in the bucket, trying to keep you down in the hole with them.

Remember, when you prioritize you, when you gain new skills and an updated mindset, it’s not just a win for you. 

It’s like you’re the superhero in your own comic book, ready to help out your family. 

When you're at your best, you make everything and everyone around you better too.

Basically, making 2024 the year of YOU truly benefits your loved ones as well. 

Our final Best of 2023 Wake Up Legendary is tomorrow, January 1st with an amazing interview with Chelsea Ouimet.

She talks alot about finally prioritizing herself and only keeping people in her circle that charge her up instead of vacuuming her goals and energy away. 

It’s an excellent interview to kick off the year with. 

Then Dave is back LIVE on Tuesday with an all new guest, new motivation, and new inspiration to help YOU make 2024 your best year yet. 

Check out this week’s episodes below.

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn

ESCAPE BUSINESS DEATH

Stopped learning?

Think you know everything? 

Your business will die.

Yikes, I’m whipping out some strong language on a Sunday.

But it’s with the best intentions.

Recently in a conversation with Dave, we were chatting about the importance of ALWAYS being open to growth and learning.

The day one decides they know everything and becomes closed minded is the day their business begins to die.

Learning is like the sunrise – it has to happen daily, and each day offers a new spectrum of colors to be amazed by.

The moment we think we've seen all the colors of the sunrise is the moment our businesses start to miss out on the beautiful hues of growth.

It’s the moment we start sitting in the dark.

It’s the moment we’re stuck looking for all the glory and results, with little to no effort.

We want change done for us.

That same person who just wants a result without the effort is most likely… skipping days of the challenge

deciding their way “is better”

skipping opportunities to learn

And hopping around from online guru to guru, searching for someone to provide the magic and create instant success FOR them.

I can bet with pretty high certainty that the same person is sitting around throwing out the word scam,, saying it didn’t work for them, and ultimately…

STAYING STUCK.

Continued learning is key to continued growth and I don’t know about you, but my goal is to be a better version of myself than the day before.

So what did I do last week to keep to this goal?

Among other things, I listened to the following webinars:

  1. Overcoming Imposter Syndrome And Self Doubt
  2. How To Grow Deeper Connections With Your Audience
  3. Content Creation: How To Grow and Monetize An Instagram Account
  4. A Masterclass In Using ChatGPT For Digital Marketing
  5. An inspirational story of what determination, grit, and consistency truly looks like to grow as an entrepreneur

WHAT A WEEK OF CONTINUED GROWTH!

Now, you might be thinking, “JoAnn, that's fantastic, but what about me?”

Guess what? You’ve got the golden ticket too!

You’ve had access all along.

Ya see, this is what was covered and taught during each episode of Wake Up Legendary last week.

Monday: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome And Self Doubt
Tuesday: How To Grow Deeper Connections With Your Audience
Wednesday: Content Creation: How To Grow and Monetize An Instagram Account
Thursday: A Masterclass In Using ChatGPT For Digital Marketing
Friday: An inspirational story of what determination, grit, and consistency truly looks like to grow as an entrepreneur

Any of those topics spark your interest?

Would any of those topics help grow your knowledge and business?

Heck yeah!

I want you to take advantage of every resource available to you.

I'm practically leaping with excitement for you to dive into this treasure trove.

I’ve even heard some whispers, “Wake Up Legendary is just students talking.”

And you know what?

It sure is.

Because they’re the heartbeats of our community, learning, implementing, teaching, and now providing you a free masterclass in marketing and entrepreneurship with Dave.

It’s absolutely beautiful.

It doesn't matter their background, it doesn't matter what niche they're in.

I want to invite you to LOOK DEEPER.

Look at the bigger picture that's being presented to you. 

All that matters is the absolute GOLD that's provided to help YOU grow your own skillset, mindset, and online business. 

Even if you can’t catch the episode live.

We broadcast the replays right there on Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, & Apple Podcasts.

Listen in the car, while in the shower and getting ready for your day.

You deserve to get unstuck and tiny actions forward will help.

Your Weekly Legend for October 8th-14th

Wow, I have to say, you all are simply incredible! 

Over the last two weeks, I've had the privilege of leading not one, but TWO LIVE “Decade In A Day” Webinars. 

The energy, dedication, and heartfelt stories I've witnessed from our community have been nothing short of inspiring. 

We had nearly 2000 passionate students join us over the last two Fridays, and during one unforgettable moment, Dave asked a simple yet profound question: “What's the reason you’re doing this?”

The responses, like the ones below, left us all speechless:

“I want to be the mom I was to my kids before my divorce.”

“I want to have time again and not be just working or tired when it comes to time with my spouse.”

“I want to stop spending all my time working hard for a boss that doesn't care.”

“I want slower evenings with my loved ones.”

“I want to travel and not have so much worry in my life.”

“I want to improve my mental health.”

Dang indeed…

These are not just words; these are raw, authentic desires that come from deep within. 

It's this vulnerability, this honesty, that makes our Legendary Marketer community so incredible. 

We're not just here to learn digital marketing skills…

We’re here to support each other in achieving our dreams and transforming our lives. 

In our community, when you open up, you find a network of like-minded individuals who not only understand your aspirations but are also eager to help you achieve them. 

It's a place where you can share your struggles, your dreams, and your successes without judgment, knowing that you are surrounded by people who genuinely care about your growth and happiness. 

So, to all of you who shared your “whys” with us, thank you for your courage and authenticity. 

Your stories remind us why we're here and why our Legendary Marketer community is so extraordinary. 

If you haven't truly identified  your “why” yet, I encourage you to do so. 

Embrace your vulnerability, because it's through sharing and supporting each other that we all thrive and grow together.

Not to share from a place of complaining or as a victim…

But rather a place looking for growth towards your true goal. 

Let's continue to uplift, inspire, and motivate one another as we pursue our goals in this new season we're entering. 

Remember, your WHY is the driving force behind your journey…(and saying it's more money won't be enough to drive you into action.)

Go deeper and our community is here to help you achieve it.

Want even daily inspiration from others just like you? 

Don’t miss a single episode of Wake Up Legendary.  

These are LIVE free trainings on mindset, strategy, and a place to connect with others as well. 

Scroll down and check out all our upcoming episodes, along with this week’s Marketer’s Club topic.

Your Weekly Legend for October 1st-7th

Aloha!

This week I’m in Hawaii enjoying a change of scenery, perspective, and new experiences with my family. 

For weeks I’ve been talking with my teenagers about swimming with Manta Rays.

I’ve sent them videos…

I’ve shared my experience…

Yet, both kids had worrying thoughts enter their mind…being in the ocean at night, pitch black water, 12 foot rays swimming inches from your body.

Fear was clearly present. 

As a parent, I prepped and armed them with information and encouragement as much as possible.

I educated.

I shared experiences.

I reassured them.

But ultimately, I can’t throw them in the water or push them off the side of the boat and make them take action.(Could you imagine, a crazy mom chucking their kids into dark waters)

I can’t force them to step through the fear.

They’ll have to be the ones to make the final decision to literally jump off the side of the boat, swim in the dark waters and float as large manta rays come up close and personal.

No matter how much we talk about it, in the end…only they are responsible for the outcome. 

As I sit here on the patio enjoying my Kona coffee and hearing the abundance of birds as the sun rises, I was reminded how the same goes for you. 

Right now, as you read this you may be…

Fearing the what ifs… (what if I fail, what if I can’t figure out the tech, what if…)

The “What if’s” fill your thoughts.

Just as the “what ifs” were filling my kids thoughts.

But here’s the kicker! 

You're standing at a crossroads. You have a choice.

You can either muster the courage to jump off the boat and dive into this exciting adventure, conquering your fears along the way.

 or… 

You can choose to stay onboard, watching others embark on this incredible journey. 

Always stuck wondering what would have happened if you didn’t hold back. 

The choice is yours. 

Everyone on the manta ray tour had a paid ticket, no refunds once you were on the boat. 

How did it end? 

I jumped in first, and let them fully decide. 

I looked back and one after the other, I saw them jump in. 

I will also share, one lady just couldn’t muster up the courage to enter the water. 

The crew was doing all they could to encourage her.

She stayed on the boat and watched the rest of us.

As our adventure ended and we were gathering our things, I heard her say to her husband – I should have at least tried to go in.

Dang…the regret had already set in. 

We can't escape fears, but we can choose to confront them head-on.

I challenge you today to identify the narrative you’re telling yourself.

Is it keeping you stuck or are you swimming right through that fear and taking in every ounce of the experience? 

Here at Legendary we’ve been around many years, taught many students, and see lives changed daily. 

We are so pumped and excited to teach you, share with you, guide you, be available to answer all your questions, and have every resource available for you to thrive…but only you can be the one to jump, start swimming, and take real action. 

You’re jumping into an amazing ocean of water with unlimited options to design your business, your time, your future just as you want it be. 

You just gotta to recognize the fear…and take action through it. 

Looking for daily inspiration to help you continue to take action? 

Wake Up Legendary is waiting for you Monday – Friday. 

Catch it live or schedule in the replay, check out all our guests below. 

As always…

Stay Legendary,

JoAnm

Your Weekly Legend for September 17th - 23rd

Dave had such a great reminder this week…

We can’t help you grow, fix, pivot, adjust anything in your business unless you’ve actually taken action. 

“We can’t help you from the bench.”

Sitting on the sidelines watching others take action, isn’t going to help any of us get where we want to go. 

This exact discussion has come up a few times on Wake Up Legendary this week. 

But there’s one problem with this…

Many of us are asking ourselves “Well how do I get called in to play?”

We're sitting on the bench learning, wanting big goals, big dreams, big results.

But our desire to feel wanted is stronger.

We're waiting to be chosen.

Our internal training to wait to be picked to play is actually in control and calling the shots. 

Guys this isn’t PE class. 

And we don’t need to ever wait for someone else to decide we’re ready. 

As we build our own business…

No more waiting for a boss to give us a raise.

No more waiting for a manager to tell us what to do next.

No more waiting for the coach to tell us it’s our turn to play. 

We never have to wait to be chosen to play again. 

We never have to wait for someone to say “I pick you. It’s your turn.”

Ya know why?

Because the only way to win and actually turn your education into a thriving online business is to decide to pick yourself.

When we start looking for someone out there to do that for us…

We end up buying some icky, crappy product in the DMs and believing said “gurus” with big promises. 

When they actually have little to no experience. (Their whole marketing “strategy” is DM’ing people with big promises and usually fake accounts…yikes.)

All because we felt “chosen.”

This is where all the uncomfortable talk about self worth and mindset come in, so I will keep it simple today. 

Today choose yourself to go in and play.

You’re the boss.

You’re the coach.

You decide the rules for your business…no one else. 

You’re the one that holds the power, holds the key, holds your future.

If you’re sitting and watching everyone else, waiting for your turn…

STOP.

Right now is your turn. 

Grab it.

Jump in.

Take action.

Today…choose yourself and get off the bench. 

Because you’re frickin’ worth it.

As always…

Stay Legendary,

JoAnn

WHAT

WEEK…

I’m still fired up!

On Friday I was asked this question: 

“This is beyond valuable, why don’t more people talk about this single bonus more because it’s worth so much?”

I thought to myself…HECK YEAH it is! 

What is this I speak of? 

On Friday, with nearly 1000 students gathered on a live teaching webinar, cohosted by yours truly, this question was asked. 

Every couple of weeks, we pick a new niche with new offers and build out everything, including a content plan. 

We take all the skills taught in the Blueprints and put them into action. 

We break it all down and demonstrate how the skills we teach are used in all areas of digital marketing regardless of niche or offer. 

We poured our hearts, marketing wisdom, and experience into this incredible group, and the energy was electrifying! 

If you’re a Blueprints student and haven’t attended Decade In A Day (or haven’t in a while) I highly suggest you revisit it! 

But that's just the beginning. 

Our interviews on Wake Up Legendary are nothing short of mind-blowing. 

Day after day, there is so much value given, it’s like a masterclass in entrepreneurship and marketing. 

Thursday's guests took the excitement to a whole new level!

If you crave inspiration from genuine, hardworking, and heart-centered individuals, then you cannot afford to miss Thursday's interview with Rodney & Amy.

It's a massive dose of motivation that will leave you fired up to conquer your dreams.

If you don’t know these two…it’s time that you do! 

RUN to that interview. 

And here's the cherry on top – Legendary Marketer has once again been recognized as one of the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Businesses in America. 

We're absolutely beaming with pride for this remarkable achievement!

Gone are the days when a formal university education was the only path to success. 

Today, we're living in an era where credibility and authority are built on real skills, not just degrees.

E-Learning isn't just a trend; it's a necessity. 

At Legendary Marketer, our students are gaining practical, valuable, and transferable marketing skills that will serve them for years, even decades to come.

We're not just another “guru” or mentor who disappears overnight or hops around from offer to offer. 

We proudly declare that we are a Leadership Factory, dedicated to your growth and success. 

So many marketers, course creators, and coaches got their first introduction to the online space right here.

Their first realization that something MORE is possible for them as they go through the challenge. 

Proud of their beginnings, their journey, and their new future. 

And you, regardless of what stage you're in, in your journey…

We are here to guide, teach, and inspire you as well. 

I’ve also had many of you reach out asking if you can share this news with your communities…

The answer…ABSOLUTELY! 

Below are various links you can use to share the Inc. 5000 news:

Check out our insightful article and blog post here: READ & SHARE BLOG 

And for a visual treat, watch and share the electrifying announcement video here: YOUTUBE LINK FOR EASY SHARING

We're focused on what's to come and will continue to revolutionize the way education and success are achieved. 

Join us in celebrating these remarkable milestones. 

Thank you for being a part of our Legendary journey!

“The best is yet to come.”

Legendary Marketer named to the 2023 Inc. 5000 list

 

For the 2nd year in a row, Legendary Marketer Appears on the Inc. 5000,  Ranking No. 30 in Fastest Growing Education Companies In America 

 

Inc. has released their 2023 Inc 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America. This year, it revealed that Legendary Marketer moved up over 1000 spots from last year in the overall ranks and up over 30 spots in the education niche, demonstrating continued growth, trust, and value within their customer base.

The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. Legendary Marketer, in its 7th year of business continues to deliver education simply and with integrity. 

“We've built more than just a company; we've created a team, a community – one bound together by the shared vision of transforming lives, unlocking potential, and revealing that building legacies is indeed possible.” – David Sharpe, CEO of Legendary Marketer

With the continued accolades that Legendary Marketer receives in creating quality, alternative education of transferable skills in the online space, a deeper story of our founder and CEO, David Sharpe not only continues to prove determination, grit, and consistency are crucial to entrepreneurial success but that culture and community are key to longevity.

David Sharpe has built a company that is 100% remote, with employees and contractors from all around the globe.

Your Weekly Legend for July 23rd-29th

Scroll hole…

I almost spit out my coffee when I heard it. 

It’s so funny yet sooooo true. 

I’ve been a victim of the scroll hole. 

In fact, I see it as the enemy. 

For me, it’s the killer of focus.

The killer of creativity.

The killer of doing my own income producing skills

It’s the time suck that I’m pretty sure all of us fall victim to at some point.

The scroll hole will bury your goals, dreams, and focus.

What’s the scroll hole you ask? 

 It’s the endless scrolling and consuming of content on our social media accounts. 

And it usually ends up with a massive chunk of time of our day completely wasted.

Leaving us with a confused brain and a massive dose of self doubt. 

When we're watching everyone else, it’s easy to start comparing. 

When we're watching everyone else, it’s easy to forget what actions WE should be doing to grow our own business. 

When we're watching everyone else, our education, our goals, our business all get placed on hold. 

But JoAnn…this is digital marketing! 

I have to stay in touch with what’s happening and trending…

You're right…and you're wrong. 

It all depends on how you scroll…and you can't use it as an excuse to endlessly scroll social media each day. 

Scroll with a focus and goal for the day and set a timer if you have to.

Ask yourself these questions beforehand:  

What specifically are you researching? 

What goal do you hope to achieve from the research?

Are you taking notes of your findings and then implementing them? 

Once complete….stop the scroll. 

THEN IMPLEMENT

This is the only way to have productive use of scrolling.

Are there going to be times where you just want to lose yourself and scroll your feed…sure. 

Just be aware that it's probably not helping your education or new business. 

It's just a time suck.

Plus staying out of the scroll hole will actually bring out more creativity, more authentic content and you won’t look like you’re trying to be like everyone else online. 

Please go watch last Tuesday’s episode of Wake Up Legendary with a former Doctor of Audiology. 

Gwen is the one that shared the phrase “scroll hole” and she and Dave dove into all things MLM, mindset, and what it truly means to be on an entrepreneurial journey.

Your Weekly Legend for July 9th-15th

I witnessed a really cool moment this week.

As I was talking with one of our guests prior to the show, she shared something absolutely beautiful…

“As of this week, my husband is now home full time.”

It wasn’t just what she said, it was how she said it.

I could feel her heart bursting out of her chest.

She was filled with joy, care, and excitement for this new change within her family life.

16 months after starting this journey of building her own digital marketing business, Em’s husband got to choose to spend more time with family, more time with his spouse and no longer miss out on his kids growing up.

He got to choose time.

Here’s the thing though…

When starting out on this journey, Em’s main focus wasn’t necessarily to retire her husband or make a specific amount of money.

She first wanted to be able to homeschool her kids.

She wanted to be able to have a date night without guilt.

She wanted to end the crazy work hours her and her husband were doing and never feeling like they were getting ahead. 

There was a badass version of Em waiting to be unlocked.

She knew there could be MORE for her and her family.

As her business grew, her goals did too.

As her mindset evolved, even more was revealed of what’s truly possible.

She had big dreams when she started, but also smaller goals to run for.

All of this came from a day 1 with zero followers in March of 2022.

She didn’t have a secret massive following.

She didn’t have years of marketing experience under her belt.

She was a busy mom looking for more.

More time

More freedom

More peace

Sometimes when we are wanting massive changes in our life, we forget what the start is going to look and feel like.

We all have a day 1.

We all have a period of time of zero followers.

We all have that first choice to make…to implement or sit on the sidelines and watch.

If you committed to working on your business every single day for 16 months, where do you think you’d be?

Heck if you committed to focused time everyday on your business…

Imagine what’s possible 6 months from now.

Do me a favor and think about your goals today.

Answer the questions below and make sure none of them include a dollar amount.

GO DEEPER!

What are some things you want to be able to do for yourself?

For your family?

What’s a smaller goal you can set for yourself 90 days from now?

What’s a 6 month goal?

12 month goal?

2 year goal?

Write these down and look at this each day you sit down to work on your business.

Em and Dave really dove into a ton of topics during Thursday’s episode.

Watch this interview asap.

It’s an absolute must watch!

Have you ever heard the 5 people you are around the most are the ones with the biggest influence in your life?

In your decisions…

In your mindset…

In your future…

As entrepreneur and motivational speaker, Jim Rohn shared –

“You're the average of the five people you spend most of your time with”. 

In fact, five people around you are determining your success!

Dang…your circle and who you allow in it is pretty important. 

If all you hear day in and day is complaining, whining, and around those that looked at life with a glass half empty mindset…most likely you will also.

Now you find yourself working to create a real change in your life. 

You’re embarking on becoming an entrepreneur or have and now growing your business. 

This takes courage.

This takes grit.

This takes determination.

And getting the right people around you sure can help. 

But how do you do this when everyone is “online?”

Let’s find your virtual besties! 

They live in our community facebook group (just not the ones that live in your DMs)

Your Weekly Legend for June 25th- July 1st

I saw a comment recently…  

“I  wish they had more “real” people on as guests on Wake Up Legendary.”

To be honest…

It kinda threw me off.

Do they think we have advanced AI conversations with bots?

Maybe they think we have hired actors? 

I have watched WUL put out over 750 episodes (752 to be exact) of interviews with real students who are now digital marketers.

Maybe because no one, I mean no one can pull a new student Monday-Friday for years to even hold these types of conversations.  

But beyond that, we had a guest that I think will finally fit the “real” category. 

She shared that her house is usually a mess. 

She shared that showering daily isn’t required to show up online. 

She even shared that there was a scorpion above her head on the ceiling during the interview. 

I mean, that’s pretty dang real! 

Multiple times she describes herself as just a normal person, with normal issues, and not trying to be some pinterest mom that she just isn’t. 

She also shared…

How she battled with self confidence.

How she created content from the beginning when she was not feeling like an expert. 

How she stays consistent in a daily schedule of a busy family. 

Oh and when I say share….I mean she spilled all the tea. 

She gave a ton of gold bars that will immediately help you understand what this journey looks like, that you can indeed show up authentically to your audience with confidence. 

This is an interview every single person in our community needs to watch. 

Please head over and watch Meagan’s interview with Dave. WATCH IT NOW

She’s as real as it gets. 

(And a pretty darn cool person!)

Then set your calendar alerts and don’t miss a single episode of Wake Up Legendary. We go live on Facebook Monday-Friday at 10am EST.

Every day, we have a guest that is “real.” 

I promise no AI bots or hired actors!

These interviews provide absolutely massive value, community, support, knowledge, and inspiration.

Your Weekly Legend for June 11th-17th

Have you gone all in..

Like REALLY ALL IN? 

I had the pleasure of sitting down for a bit with one of our Mastermind speakers.

Phil first launched his freelance digital marketing business in 2021 and he didn’t see immediate, overnight success like many think. 

You see, 4 months after Phil started his education and launched his business in digital marketing he had received a few small commissions but hadn't experienced a ton of growth or consistent income yet. 

His spouse has been super supportive and was someone he can always go to as a trusted ear.

On this particular day, she was also the wake up call he needed. 

He went to her and shared that he knows he can make this business work but can’t figure out what he’s missing. 

He so desperately wanted a breakthrough, but couldn’t figure out what to do next.

Then his wife asked the question that changed everything…

Did you actually go through the education? 

Did you actually watch ALL of the videos, take notes, and learn so you know what to implement?

Crap…

She just nailed it.

The roadblock he was facing was sitting right in front of him. 

You see, he got honest with himself and realized that he had only skimmed through the education. 

How can you really become great at something unless you become open to learning and growing about what it is you want to excel in? 

He grabbed a few key points and implemented them but never went ALL IN

He wanted to see massive change happen in his life, yet he hadn’t truly taken the massive action first. 

He went back through the education he had access to, implemented more and more each week and suddenly he started to see his business grow. 

You see, we can’t teach, give, or provide to an audience from an empty cup of knowledge and experience. (Em shared this on a recent blueprints training and I love it!)

Which also means…we gotta go all in to fill ourselves with what we need in order to serve others. 

It requires us to remember we are worthy of prioritizing ourselves.

We are worthy of learning to be able to then give more to others. 

We are worthy of going all in and create the change in our life that we are searching for. 

Going all in means facing challenges head-on, pushing boundaries, and redefining our limitations. 

Each step we take towards learning new skills opens doors to extraordinary opportunities that we could never have imagined otherwise.

Phil is now able to go live with ease, build relationships and connections in a way that is authentic and clear. 

His business is booming. 

And it all started once he went all in. 

This conversation was one of many that happened at Mastermind. 

So many in our community think those who have built successful online businesses got to that point overnight.

All of our speakers have experienced roadblocks.

All have experienced challenges, self-doubt, and fear.

Yet one thing remained consistent…

Going all in with their mindset, their actions, and their ongoing growth of knowledge are truly what’s set them up for ongoing success. 

By going all in, they refused to let fear hold them back. 

You can too…

What actions can you take today to go all in? 

Don’t forget to scroll down and check out the guests that are coming on the show this week and schedule in your success.

Wishing you a legendary week ahead!

June 4th – June 10th

Your Weekly Legend for June 4th-10th

There are a few things in this world that I would love to avoid…

One of those I experienced day after day.

The torture…

The public embarrassment and judgment.

The stress.

Yes folks I’m talking about the full blown, drop to the ground kicking and screaming…

Toddler tantrum. 

My second child was so masterfully explosive with his tantrums I swore he took a course on mastering momma manipulation.

Now…whether you agree with our decision at the time or not…

We quickly learned when he heard the word “no” it would immediately trigger into 10-15 minutes of sheer hell. 

An uncontrollable, inconsolable toddler tantrum.

It didn’t matter where we were or what was going on around us. 

So what did we start doing? 

No, turned into…”Maybe Tomorrow”

Didn’t matter what the question or demand was…

Even if was a completely ridiculous answer to his equally ridiculous question…

Can I ride motorcycle momma?

Maybe tomorrow…

I want candy for breakfast

Tomorrow…

Every time he would answer ok and move on to the next thought or go back to what he was doing. 

Tantrum avoided…

At some point, we were going to need to teach this kid how to appropriately handle hearing “no.”

We were avoiding it to stay comfortable.

We needed to face it…and we did. 

And for those wondering how this kid is going to turn out…he’s a 4.2 16 year and has a heart of gold. (So please no parent police today) 

Let me ask you…are you telling yourself the same type of lie?

I’ll launch my business next week…

I’m thinking about getting started…

I’m gettin’ ready, to get ready…(seriously see and hear this one almost daily) 

Tomorrow…

Tomorrow is the box of procrastination that we're trapped in.

It ultimately is an excuse that postpones our ambitions, our goals, and the work we have to put in to learn and build a new business. 

But here's the truth: Tomorrow never truly arrives. 

It remains a distant promise, forever just out of reach. 

When we say “tomorrow,” what we're actually saying is “no” to ourselves. 

We’re just hiding it behind the disguise of “soon or tomorrow” so we don’t actually feel like we quit or gave into fear. 

When we tell ourselves those little lies, we're saying no to growth, to progress, and to the incredible possibilities that await us in the world of digital marketing.

Trust me…taking action is messy, it’s scary, it might even be as scary as facing the toddler tantrum. 

But at some point we all gotta stop tiptoeing around the toddler and figure it out.

We only accomplish that…by doing it.

Look at it this way…

Taking action today and the next and the next instead of pushing it off with the lies of tomorrow, soon, getting ready opens up space for the following:

  1. Seize Opportunities: By taking action today, you open yourself up to opportunities that would have otherwise passed you by. Every day, there are potential clients, collaborations, and breakthroughs waiting for someone to seize them. Make it you.
  2. Cultivate a Growth Mindset: Embrace the journey of continuous learning and improvement. Each day, challenge yourself to acquire new skills, stay updated with industry trends, and expand your knowledge base. Your commitment to growth will set you apart from the rest.
  3. Learn from Mistakes: Instead of fearing failure, see it as an essential part of your growth. When you stumble, learn from the experience, adjust your course, and keep moving forward. Every mistake is a lesson in disguise.

I challenge you to recognize the words you’re telling yourself.

Are you delaying until ‘tomorrow”? 

Today is an even better day to take action. 

Lastly, don’t forget to scroll down and check out the guests that are coming on the show this week and schedule in your success.

Wishing you a legendary week ahead!

Your Weekly Legend for May 21st-27th

How are you serving your audience?

What does that even mean?

When you scroll your content plan or feed…are they all focused on selling?

Or are you serving…

When we focus on service over selling, beautiful changes happen.

A few weeks ago, we stumbled across a cute little bakery.

As we went inside, we were greeted with a warm welcome, the gentleman behind the counter was excited to explain the different items, which were his favorite and why.

He was oozing with excitement…

Confidence…

Knowledge…

And was clearly enjoying his job and day.

My family felt comfortable and couldn’t wait to try a few items.

He was never giving off used car salesman vibes.

He was sharing, conversing, and recommending instead.

As I scanned around, it was clear there were regulars…

The workers knew customers' names and it was the cutest little community built inside this little bakery.

It was clear they came not only for the yummy treats but also for the heartfelt conversations, the advice, and the genuine care that was oozing in the air.

In a world overflowing with advertisements and sales pitches, customers are yearning for something different.

They crave authentic connections, valuable content, and solutions tailored to their needs.

Building a digital marketing business is no different.

This is why we gotta stop trying to sell and focus on serving.

But what do I talk about?

This is where your business plan is crucial.

Your business plan will reveal a full understanding of your target audience, diving deep into their desires, challenges, and aspirations.

Armed with this knowledge, you can now craft compelling stories, engaging content, and useful resources designed to serve, educate, and inspire.

When you dive into it, your business plan will be the building blocks for all the content you create…

Your headlines

Your copy

Your imagery

A detailed and thoughtful business plan will help you lead with service and you’ll never find yourself asking – I’m new at this what do I talk about?

When we focus on serving, we build strong bonds with our ideal audience.

Trust flourishes

and soon…customers became advocates, willingly spreading the word about you and your brand.

Online businesses are soaring when they remove aggressive sales tactics.

Instead, show genuine care about making a difference in people's lives.

The impact we can create by embracing a service mindset is nothing short of phenomenal.

Plus…your content will be more fun to make, you’ll feel more creative, and soon your ideal audience will follow.

Lastly, Wake Up Legendary gives you daily tips, tricks, and hacks to grow your confidence, mindset, and business. Be sure to check out this week's events below.

As always…

Stay Legendary!

Your Weekly Legend for May 14th-20th

Are you overlooking this?

It’s crucial to strategy.

It helps us NOT look like virtual version of the door to door salesman. 

These guys annoy the heck outta me…

I didn’t ask them to stop by.

I’m in no way interested in what they have to say.

I know right from the start, they only have one purpose…

To make a sale. 

This week I had 3 door to door salesmen ring my doorbell. 

These poor guys are literally walking the streets trying to get eyeballs on what they're selling. 

They don't give two cents about me or any type of long term business relationship.

They want to close a deal and move on. 

The problem…

We don’t want to be sold to.

We want to be connected with. 

Showing up at someone’s front door uninvited usually isn’t going to cut it. 

The same thing goes for your social media content. 

We gotta stop creating videos that feel like a door to door salesman in the feed.

One way to stop looking thirsty for sales…change your Call To Action (CTA). 

So what’s a CTA? 

This is your “ask” at the end of your content. 

It’s the action you want your viewer to take after watching your video. 

Right now in our community there’s a whole lotta of “click link in bio” or “Download my ebook” 

Over…

And over…

And over…

Yes, these are great CTAs but we can’t use them on everything, especially if we are growing a new account and looking for followers. 

Each piece of content you create needs a hook to stop the scroll, a piece of value/edutainment/or something to relate to your audience with, and then a call to action. 

Obviously we all want someone to click our link and buy all the things we recommend.

BUT…

That can’t happen without trust.

Without connection.

Without building an audience. 

If you walk up to a stranger and ask for them to buy, you’re going to get alot of NO’s.

If you do the same in your video content, you’ll get less views, less engagement, and your follower count won’t grow. 

We gotta build our social media “room” with excited followers first before we can present the offer. 

Social media is meant to be social. 

This is where engagement comes in. 

The platforms want to see engagement on your videos in order to show it to more and more people. 

Engagement metrics come from likes, shares, saves, comments, dms, and clicks compared to the number of impressions and views you had. 

The higher the engagement, the more the social media platform will push it out. 

Having the exact same CTA on every video won’t cut it. 

Did I possibly describe you? 

Don’t worry…I got you! 

Here are some TOP CTA’s to use when you’re growing an account that are not the same ol’ “click link in bio.” 

  1. Tag A Friend Who Needs to hear this (change friend to mom, co-worker, bestie, whoever makes sense for your ideal audience) 
  2. Double Tap If you Agree
  3. Save For Later
  4. Save For Later and Follow For More
  5. Drop An Emoji in the comments (give them the specific emoji to comment with)
  6. Who’s with me on this? 
  7. Maybe I’m wrong – what do you think? (use this when you are ready to hear a variety of opinions)
  8. What would you add? (After giving tips) Then engage with what viewers add in the comments. 
  9. Can you relate?
  10. Share your xyz moment in the comments (after you shared a story your audience can relate to) 
  11. Why is no one talking about this? Let me know in the comments
  12. What’s your go to (remedy/fix that your ideal audience connects with)? 
  13. Comment if you want a part 2 
  14. Like for part 2 (part 3, part 4, part 5) 
  15. Like if you agree! (Tap the heart if you agree) 
  16. Comment (insert a short fun phrase) for more! 

Also think of it this way…if all your CTAs are “click link in bio” I bet the content in those videos comes across pretty salesy…just like the door to door salesman.

Let your creative juices flow with all the variety of content you can create when you vary your CTAs!

Don’t forget to save this email and start mixing up your CTAs in your content.

Think back for me…

As a child, was there that unspoken (and sometimes spoken) expectation that you better choose to become either a lawyer or a doctor? Maybe an astronaut? 

And if you didn't choose one of those, it felt like you were choosing misery

Well, guess what? 

It was all a big fat lie. 

 

The truth is that no profession guarantees happiness or success.

Thursday's guest is a single mom who spent eight years in college and over $200k in tuition loans to become a doctor. 

But just six months into her career…

she was burnt out… 

miserable… 

unfulfilled. 

Like many moms, she was often filled with guilt, leaving her young child all day. 

She couldn't imagine doing this for another 30 years. 

 

She felt depressed and would escape her daily reality by scrolling through social media. During one of those scrolls, she watched a TT about a $7 course. It wasn't a quick decision for her to explore other options. But after a few months of watching videos, she finally decided to take the next step and see what this was.

What did she have to lose? She was already feeling miserable. She decided to dive in feet first and take action. 

And in just a few short months, she walked away from her medical profession for good and never felt happier.

This inspiring story will not only make you feel ignited but will also give you the fuel to keep going. 

You'll see first hand, what it looks like to take a chance on something new and find your true calling. 

 

Don't miss out on this amazing interview with Becca. 

Her journey will show you that it's never too late to change your path and find true happiness.

Your Weekly Legend for March 19th-25th

There’s lots a talk surrounding a possible TikTok ban. It’s sorta the elephant in the room.

I'm not going to dive into the political or the Meta business agenda behind this today…

Instead let’s dive into what this possible ban could mean for you and your business as far as day to day operations. (Plus at the end I share a few algorithm updates!)

First and foremost…If you’re setting up and growing your business properly, it will end up as a minimal shift.  

It’s really not much different than an account getting shut down and learning how to build traffic on other platforms. 

When it comes to using ANY social media platform, we gotta remember this: 

  • We’re using social media platforms rent-free
  • They’re borrowed spaces
  • We don’t own them
  • We don’t control them
  • We only utilize and learn how to capitalize from them 

A possible TikTok ban is not an excuse to quit.
(or an excuse to not get started)

No platform determines the existence of your business. 

While it's understandable to feel nervous about losing access to such a popular platform, I want to put your worries at ease.  

How consumers interact online will constantly change and evolve. 

Here are a few reminders to settle your TikTok nerves surrounding a possible ban. 

First, it’s important to remember that social media is just a tool in the marketer's arsenal. Just like we use tools/software for funnels and emails. Social media platforms are traffic tools. 

Yes, there’s no denying, TikTok has proven to be a powerful tool for reaching your target audience fast, BUT it’s not the only social media platform available. Other platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and even Twitter can also reach a wider audience. 

There are wildly successful online businesses that still haven’t touched TikTok. 

Is it useful…absolutely. Is it required for any level of success…nope. It’s not your only option. 

It never was and never will be your only option. 

If TikTok makes you uneasy…don’t use it! Find the platform you are most comfortable with using and begin to build your business there. New social media platforms are always emerging, and the next big thing could be just around the corner.

Secondly, even if TikTok were to be banned, its creators and audience don’t disappear with it. 

The creators still exist, and the consumer desire for short-form content is still there, it will just move to a different platform. 

This is why it's CRUCIAL to BUILD YOUR LIST. Your email list is completely YOURS. You own it. No one can take that piece of communication from you. Your list and followers can easily move with you to the next hottest platform with ease when you utilize your list. By staying adaptable and open to new ideas and strategies, marketers can ensure that they’re always using the most effective tools available to reach their target audience.

This is also why it’s important to stay plugged into an online community, always be open to learning and growing, and stay ahead of the ever-changing world of online marketing. 

Lastly…

Every single business needs marketing to survive. 

 

Learning marketing skills, and staying up to date on new trends, will always keep you in demand. 

If TikTok disappears tomorrow, consumers will still be buying, consuming content, and still looking for recommendations…where that happens will just shift. 

Be ready and open to shift with it utilizing the marketing skills you're learning. 

One way to stay on top of all things marketing is to listen to success stories, tips, and mindset advice that’s shared in each episode of Wake Up Legendary. 

Be sure to check out the recordings from last week and check out the guests below for this week.

As always…

Stay Legendary!
– JoAnn

P.S. ALERT: CONTENT AND ALGORITHM UPDATES! If you're on TT you probably noticed there's a shift in the algorithm…they are now rewarding content creators that create LONGER videos. Take a peak and you'll notice longer videos are landing on your FYP. If you're on TT, give a few longer videos a try if you've only been creating shorter ones. 

P.P.S. Instagram has released new updates! A whole collection of updates and recommendations were shared on a zoom between IG and top creators for what they want to see right now. (Remember marketing is always changing!) Here are two juicy updates you need to be aware of: 1.IG wants to see accounts posting stories daily 2. IG is rewarding accounts that post to the grid daily. (So it's time to kick up how often you post)

Who is Legendary Marketer?

Who is Legendary Marketer?

Who is Legendary Marketer?

Many new students ask WHAT is Legendary Marketer, but have you ever asked the more important question of…

WHO is Legendary Marketer? 

Who are the people, the humans, the hearts that are behind all that have created what Legendary Marketer is today?

who-is-legendary-marketer

Hey everyone, this is JoAnn, the Director of Marketing here at Legendary Marketer. For those that are newer to our space, I want to give you a glimpse of what you’re truly a part of. For those that have been around for a while, first and foremost we thank you for the continued trust you place in us and I want to ensure you know the people behind the brand. 

We have been in a season (heck, multiple years) of massive growth, not just with our continued growth of students but also within the team of Legendary Marketer. 

When Legendary Marketer was born, Dave, his wife Erin, and our COO, Juli didn’t just commit to building a course. They committed to building a brand of integrity and longevity. 

They committed to leading with service, value, and over-deliver for our students. 

Over the years, they had a small team of committed team members that also believed the online space can be one that delivers education along with value and ethics. (Something that is hard to find in the online space) Each year, the team inside Legendary grew a bit more and more…. 

Today…Legendary Marketer has over 120 amazing humans that play a role in answering this question daily- how do I continue to amplify the high standard that Dave set for Legendary Marketer? 

Along the way, we have had amazing team members that poured their hearts into our students. One of those, many of you know, is Matt Heltzel. Although we were sad to see him depart, we are grateful for Matt’s work and service here and it was fun and productive working with him. I, along with the entire Legendary Marketer team, wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors, one of which is his coffee shop in his local area that he owns and operates. 

As I look at the absolutely massive growth we continue to have, it’s clear our core team is absolutely phenomenal and continues to ensure we give YOU, our students the best experience possible. 

Let me take a moment and introduce you to a few of the humans, the hearts, and the passion behind Legendary Marketer.

Weekly Legend – Feb 19th-25th

February 19th – 25th, 2023

Your Weekly Legend for February 19th-25th

Recently, I was out for lunch with my youngest daughter. We were seated at a window that gave me the perfect view of a gentleman on the center divider of the road with a cardboard sign asking for money.

The sign read “Lost My Job – Anything helps”

As a new set of cars arrived at the light, no one was donating. We would watch and chat, and red light after red light…zero donations.

We carried on with our meal, and suddenly my daughter taps my hand and says “mom look!”

I glance at the gentleman on the center divider and while the light was green and cars were zooming by, he had whipped out a sharpie marker, flipped over his piece of cardboard, and was writing.

By the time that light turned red, and cars were stopped…

The sharpie was put away and a new HOOK was presented…

His sign now read “Short on cash for food & weed – please help”

OHHH we got a whole new angle now! My daughter and I were intrigued. I was impressed. Soon enough..he was given a donation.

The new hook was working.

Ya see, the ultimate goal of a cash donation was the same. Just like the ultimate goal for us marketers is a follow, an opt-in, and a conversion. This gentleman realized his previous approach was not converting on this given day, with this audience, so he tested out a new hook. And this one converted!

What can we learn here?

Don’t be afraid to try new types of content. Don’t worry about testing different hooks or captions. Don’t stress if the video “you saw another creator do” isn’t working for you…always be testing new approaches.

When you test multiple versions of your content you can compare their performance and see which ones are resonating with your target audience. Secondly, testing hooks, headlines, copy, captions, and various looks helps you optimize your content for different platforms.

For instance, a video that performs well on Facebook may not have the same impact on Instagram or Tiktok.

Thirdly, testing multiple versions of your content allows you to stay relevant and up-to-date with your customers' changing preferences. By regularly testing your content and analyzing the results, you can adapt your messaging to meet your customers' changing needs and preferences.

Ultimately, you just won’t know unless you keep trying, keep testing, and keep going.

That gentleman on the center divider was persistent. He was testing the performance of different offers to his audience right before our eyes. We as marketers must be willing to do the same.

 

As promised here is your TTT – Tip To Try…This Week!

TEST. YOUR. FUNNEL.

Above I talked about testing out new content, but this is different. Make sure everything is working as it should. Test the link from your social pages, test each button, test your autoresponder. Every time you update any piece of the process…test again.

PLUS, test it on desktop AND mobile.

How does everything look? Is everything working how you want them to?

TEST. TEST. TEST.

Now scroll down and check out all that's happening this week at Legendary Marketer.

The Weekly Round-Up is Gone…Introducing The Weekly LEGEND!

Gone are the days of simply catching up on what's happened in the past week. We want to make sure you're always ahead of the game and prepared for what's coming next. 

That's why we're introducing The Weekly LEGEND, your guide to all things marketing. A legend to refer back to throughout the week as you continue on this journey of learning and growing. Plus, I will add a TTT – TIP TO TRY this week in your marketing! 

 

Fix This ONE Thing In Your Content

Before we dive into what's ahead, let's talk about one of the most crucial elements of video content – hooks. Unfortunately, it's often the most overlooked aspect, but it's what sets the tone and direction for the rest of the video. You only have 3 seconds to stop the “zombie scroll” and draw your viewer in.

A hook is a compelling element that encourages the viewer to keep watching. Whether it's a visual, audio, or narrative element, it must be well-crafted in order to be effective. A hook that speaks directly to your target audience, is relevant to the topic of the video, and attention-grabbing is what will set your video apart from the rest and result in more views, followers, and conversions.

Here are a few tips to help you craft amazing hooks:

  1. Know your target audience and what they're looking for in a video.
  2. Make sure the hook is relevant to the topic of the video.
  3. Grab their attention with a hook that's attention-grabbing, not boring or unrelated to the rest of the video.

Video marketing has become an integral part of modern marketing strategy, with businesses of all sizes using videos to engage and persuade their target audience. However, simply producing a video and hoping it will go viral is no longer enough. In order to truly find short form content success, your hook is key. Take some time this week and review your content and specifically look at your hooks. It could make a massive different in your reach and business growth. 

As promised, here's your TTT (Tip To Try) for the week:

This week, try something different with your videos – instead of HOOK, Value, Call To Action like most video layouts… 

This week try this content layout instead:  HOOK, Call To Action, and END with Value. You might just be able to capture a few more seconds of watch time and boost your reach. Many are finding success with this and it's worth TESTING with your audience. 

So now, scroll down and see what's in store for this week at Legendary Marketer. You'll find details about each episode of Wake Up legendary, guest coaching sessions and more. Plus we've provided easy buttons to RSVP for each event. 

The Weekly LEGEND is here to make sure you never miss a beat in your marketing journey.

Legendary Marketer named to the Inc. 5000 list

We are excited to announce Legendary Marketer has been named to the Inc. 5000 list for 2022.

The Inc. 5000 list, is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful but have also demonstrated resilience amid worldwide financial woes and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. 

With Legendary Marketer’s ranking at 63rd in the education category, we are proving that alternative, quality, online education is how the world wants to consume knowledge that garners usable, transferable skills. 

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.” 

With the continued accolades that Legendary Marketer receives in creating quality, alternative education of transferable skills in the online space, a deeper story of our founder and CEO, David Sharpe continues to prove determination, grit, and resilience are crucial to entrepreneurial success. 

David Sharpe was a 9th-grade dropout who’s led a few different companies to multi-million dollars in revenue, and now with his latest venture, Legendary Marketer, he’s added an Inc. 5000 award to his repertoire.

When Dave was 24 years old, he found himself homeless, strung out, withdrawing from heroin and other opiate painkillers, and desperately needed help.

One day, he made his way to his Dad’s house, and as he stood at the door, weak, frail, almost unable to raise his arm to knock on the door, his dad answered.

Dave humbly asked, “Help me save my life.”

His Dad opened the door, let Dave sleep on his couch, brought him along on construction jobs, and gave him a safe place to try and piece his life back together. 

The hours working construction were long. 

After sweating endlessly in the hot Florida sun on job sites, Dave was again feeling stuck like there was no end in sight. He was driven to continue to grow more, push harder, and be something bigger than a construction worker.

He found himself surfing the web on his old clunky, painfully slow computer, and made the first (and most important) search that many people today find themselves making…

How do I make money online?

Dave may be a 9th-grade dropout, but he was smart enough to know that he wanted to own his own business. 

Like all aspiring business owners, he wanted to build a business with an endless supply of customers.

BUT, he wanted to achieve this dream by working from home. 

This was NOT a concept accepted 14 years ago. 

Working from home was almost unheard of, let alone building an entire business that is remote-based.

Dave went for it anyways. 

He had nothing to lose.

He kept searching for ways to make this dream a reality. 

One day, he had a million-dollar discovery while standing in a hardware store. 

“I looked over and I saw a man confused and I asked him if I could help out. He said his toilet was leaking and because of my construction experience, I was able to point him toward the little $5 wax ring that he needed to put under his toilet to create a waterproof seal. That confused man was instantly happy, so happy. In fact, he tipped me $100 Just to say thanks and that was the first money I'd earned from what I know versus what I did.” 

And that’s when Dave discovered the pathway to making his dream a reality.

Since then, he’s been packaging knowledge and selling it online.

He’s then taken all he learned, tested, and those proven strategies and results and is now teaching others to do the same.

Dave felt a calling to help as many people stop living a life of survival, but one that is meaningful, memorable, and filled with achievement and pride. 

And that’s when Legendary Marketer was born. 

Over the next five years, the company saw steady, sometimes surprising growth year after year. 

Then In 2021 alone, Legendary Marketer tripled its revenue and was named one of Inc. Magazine’s 5000 fastest-growing privately held companies in America (the 63rd fastest-growing education company).

David Sharpe has built a company that is 100% remote, with employees and contractors from all around the globe. It’s a company that is built on integrity and provides real solutions and strategies for the company's students.

Creating a 100% remote workplace also allows him to fill positions with the best talent, and not solely based on geographic location. From his highly skilled and sought-after team of advisors, top-notch customer support, and executive team, David Sharpe has created a work culture that is second to none. 

And the deliverable is nothing short of astounding. Clients of Legendary Marketer receive the highest level of education and support in the industry.

And speaking of those students:

Since March 2020, Legendary Marketer has interviewed a successful student from the program, on its LIVE podcast – Wake Up Legendary – nearly every single weekday, with over 500 success stories and a waiting list of countless new legends waiting to tell their story. Hundreds of normal, everyday folks who've turned their mess into a message, their struggles into their strengths. 

They're the real legends of Legendary Marketer. 

Now, in 2022, Legendary Marketer has broken even more company sales records and continues to deliver online marketing education simply and with integrity. 

Most of the traditional education systems train people how to become employees on the old, clunky, outdated hamster wheel. But at Legendary Marketer, students are learning real, valuable, transferable skills that will benefit them for years, even decades. And Legendary Marketer is poised to continue its growth as the E-learning age continues to expand.

Legendary Marketer and David Sharpe have proven to be the best-in-class source for high-quality, alternative education and will continue to dominate the space for years to come.

To experience Legendary Marketer for yourself, we recommend enrolling in their flagship 15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge: https://onlinebusinessbuilderchallenge.com

Important Affiliate Updates Effective July 20, 2022

Dear Legendary Marketer Affiliate:

Matt here, Chief Marketing Officer at Legendary Marketer.

Today, July 20, 2022, we're executing on a year-long plan to put more money in the pockets of all our affiliates and make our affiliate opportunity simpler and easier to participate than ever before.

If you're currently an affiliate with Legendary Marketer (or you're considering applying to be an affiliate), be sure to read this entire post to get all the details.

Please don't skim read.

Read every word.

So, why are we executing this plan?

Because unlike many of the so-called “mentors” and “gurus” out there, we're constantly asking ourselves “how can we make being a Legendary Marketer affiliate the best experience any affiliate marketer has ever had?”

It's a question that most course creators and influencers don't ask, because…

1. Usually their offer is weak and their conversions are lackluster… so they end up spending all their time worrying about how to get people to purchase their products. 

This gives them very little time to think about YOU and how they might serve YOU and make YOUR life easier.

But let me let you in on a little secret…

The 15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge offer has gone nearly unchanged for over three years, and at the time of writing this, there's only two months on record that have had higher conversion rates than July 2022.

This gives us plenty of time to split test and try a myriad of new things to make your life easier and make our offers convert even better.

In my humble opinion, right now is the best time in history to be an affiliate for Legendary Marketer.

The stats back that up.

So if you're wondering to yourself:

  • “Have the conversion rates decreased?”
  • “Is the market saturated?”
  • “Has the opportunity passed?

The answer is no.

I've told this to Dave's face, and I'll say it here too… Dave is one of the best, if not the best offer creator I have ever seen. It's uncanny. Many affiliates fail to realize this, but in 12 years of observing highly skilled offer creators, I can't think of anyone better.

But it's not just about Dave.

Which brings me to point #2.

2. Most “gurus” and “mentors” mistakenly believe it's all about them and fail to see how a winning team is the key to longevity in this industry.

Over the past few years, Legendary Marketer has carefully accumulated a highly skilled team of A+ players.

This is largely due to the foresight of Dave Sharpe and the leadership team at Legendary.

From management to support staff to marketing to business plan advisors… We ain't building for a million dollar “launch.” We ain't building to be around for a month, or a year, or even 5 years.

In our 6th year of business, we've got decades on our mind. That's why we're called Legendary Marketer, not Mediocre Marketer.

So settle in… We're not your “new kid on the block” guru who will be here today and gone tomorrow.

We aren't going anywhere, and we've constructed a team of people who have taken Legendary Marketer to a level this industry hasn't ever seen (and we've got no plans of stopping).

3. Most “gurus” and “mentors” are looking for ways to stuff money in their own pockets (not the pockets of their affiliates).

Put simply, as you'll see below…

This isn't the case with Legendary Marketer.

And we're willing to put our money where our mouth is.

So, let's get to it already. What are the big updates?!?

1. The 1st Update Is The Biggest – We Have Eliminated the PRO Affiliate Fee!

Effective immediately, July 20, 2022, we are eliminating the $29.95 fee to be a PRO Affiliate with Legendary Marketer.

If you're currently a paying PRO affiliate, you will no longer be charged the $29.95 fee, but you will still earn the same commission percentages!

You won't earn less.

Your commission percentage will remain the same.

We won't take any money away from you.

We want to make 2022 the most profitable year for your business, and what better way to do that than cutting your business expenses!

IMPORTANT: We are not issuing refunds for any previously paid PRO Affiliate Fees. We are simply not going to charge the $29.95 PRO Affiliate Fee any longer. All affiliates will earn the same commission percentage, which you can see on our referral plan page.

In short – If you were a PRO affiliate before, you will still earn the same commissions you were already earning. If you were a FREE affiliate before, you will now earn what the PRO affiliates earn.

If you have questions regarding the commission percentages, please do not submit a support ticket until you have fully reviewed the referral plan page.

2. We're Eliminating Lead Capture Pages (And Autoresponder Integrations)

Frankly, let's keep this short and sweet. We want you to build your business, not ours. And while it might be nice to send your traffic to our lead capture pages, this feature has caused more questions than the value it's provided.

So Matt, what will happen if I'm sending traffic to a lead capture page hosted by Legendary Marketer?

Effective immediately, those links will be automatically forwarded to our sales pages, instead of our capture pages.

That means your traffic will still go to an affiliate link, it just won't be to collect them as a lead. They will instead go straight to a sales page.

This change was made with the goal of you creating your own lead capture page (which we teach very clearly throughout our 15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge, especially on day 3). You can review day 3 of the challenge if you need a refresher.

In short, this feature was being used by very few affiliates and affiliates who use their own landing page and bridge page historically are more successful than those who use company hosted capture pages, so again… We're trying to put more money in your pocket, by making our platform simpler and easier for you to use.

NOTE: Don't worry! Your existing leads will still be available to export in your affiliate backoffice!

3. We've Added A Highly-Requested Feature: Webhooks/Postbacks

Note: This is for more advanced affiliates, so if this is something you're unfamiliar with, I would recommend taking some time to research what webhooks are (preferably do your research before bombarding our support team with questions about this)!

In a nutshell, webhooks/postbacks will give you the ability to run paid ads and send ‘events' back to your paid ads platform that let you track your ads better.

We're now living in a time where tracking paid ads statistics has become more difficult than ever, and some advanced marketers have requested that we have the webhooks/postbacks so they can run retargeting ads to their traffic and see what converts.

Now you finally have that option!

I want to stress and reiterate, though… If you're a newer affiliate marketer or are completely unfamiliar with these, I would recommend not even worrying about this particular feature update right now. It really is an advanced tech feature that should only be used by those who really understand it fully.

4. We Have NEW Lead Magnets For You To Swipe & Deploy!

Hmmm… How many times can I say it before it gets annoying?

We just want to put more money in your pockets!

And I know I shared a little secret with you earlier about how well our offer is converting these days…

… but can I let you in on another secret?

After pouring through endless piles of data over the last year, we've discovered that many of our top affiliates at Legendary Marketer are generating massive amounts of traffic, leads and sales by giving away free reports and eBooks.

And what's even better?

Most times, the affiliates with the highest conversion rates are those who are offering a freebie to their audience in exchange for their email address.

What it shows us is that the highest quality lead is someone who feels like they got value from you.

It's Marketing 101 and it's as basic as it can get.

And yet sometimes we forget…

… WE AS MARKETERS HAVE TO LEAD WITH VALUE!

So, we decided to hand you two free giveaways in the “Custom Funnels” section of your affiliate dashboard.

If you're logged in, you can simply click here and go straight to that section.

The first is called “The #1 Online Business To Start In 2022.” Of course, we'll update that date when 2023 rolls around, but until then, this lead magnet can be used as a giveaway to help generate leads and sales by showing people our favorite online business to start!

The second is called “The Step-By-Step Checklist To Start A Thriving Freelance Digital Marketing Business In 2022.” Again, we'll update the dates when necessary. People love checklists and this short little PDF will give them a taste of what they're looking for and leave them craving more. 

Both of these powerful lead magnets have placeholders for you to insert your affiliate links. We actually teach you how to do this yourself using free tools in just a matter of a few minutes. Click here to go to custom funnels and learn how to do it yourself!

The goal with both of these lead magnets is not just to provide you with Done-For-You swipe content to use.

We also want to show you just how easy it is to create these giveaways and resources for yourself!

We believe by demonstrating the exact steps it takes to create these types of giveaways, you'll feel empowered and emboldened to make your own (which is even more powerful and leads to even higher conversions).

It only takes a few minutes to do it, and we believe implementing something like this can have a massive positive impact on your conversions!

Last but not least, we want to express how grateful we are for your continued partnership with Legendary Marketer.

The team at Legendary Marketer values the partnership we have with so many of you.

You all have entrusted us with your audience, your traffic, and your leads.

We take this extremely serious.

It's an honor to wake up every day and try to help as many people as humanly possible see the opportunity that exists on the internet right now (and truly, the opportunity has never been greater than it is at this very moment).

We're here to do everything in our power to make you successful in your partnership with Legendary Marketer.

If you have questions, you can email them to support@legendarymarketer.com. We only ask that you read every word of this blog post before sending a support ticket in. Oftentimes the answer we're seeking is hidden in plain sight!

Until next time,
Be Legendary

ARIIX Review: Is It a Credible MLM Company?

David Sharpe bio

Did you know that one out of every 13 Americans has been involved in a multi-level marketing company, or MLM?

From weight loss to cookware to cosmetics, there’s no shortage of MLM companies to work for. Each one offers interesting, often innovative products, and promises rich financial rewards for participation.

Since you’re reading this ARIIX review, you’re probably considering joining an MLM company yourself. But is ARIIX the best MLM company for you? And is working with an MLM really right for you in the first place?

And—most importantly—is ARIIX a scam?

In this ARIIX MLM review, we’ll answer these questions and more so you can make a confident decision about your entrepreneurial goals. To learn everything you need to know about ARIIX and whether this MLM is right for you, keep reading.

ARIIX Review: Company Overview

ARIIX sells health, wellness, beauty, and weight loss products and supplements. These include products like protein shakes, nutritional supplements, skincare lotions and creams, and even water and air purifiers.

On the outside, ARIIX seems like a typical MLM: great graphic design, a compelling product selection, and an aspirational brand. But although their prices are steep, their products are held to a higher standard of quality than many MLMs.

ARIIX is not a scam, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get rich as an ARIIX salesperson. For one thing, membership dues are strict and costly. Not only that, but the real money is made—when it’s made at all—when you recruit other sellers. So you don’t get paid for selling products as much as for getting other people in your downline. This is far from unusual among MLM companies, but that doesn’t make it any less questionable.

ARIIX Pros and Cons

ARIIX isn’t a perfect company or even a perfect MLM, but it does have its strong points. Read on to learn about the advantages and disadvantages involved.

Pros

It’s not uncommon for MLMs to place more emphasis on money and membership than on the actual products being sold. ARIIX isn’t entirely different in this regard. However, they do have strict quality guidelines that set them apart from other MLMs.

ARIIX has its own Scientific Advisory Board, which ensures every product they sell is high-quality. This is highly unusual and shows impressive attention to detail on the part of ARIIX.

However, despite their focus on quality, ARIIX’s products are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Depending on your personal feelings regarding the FDA, this could seem either negative or positive. But most customers would be more comfortable buying from you if they knew your products were FDA-approved.

Of course, the products ARIIX sells are just one part of the entire system. Your experience as a member will probably revolve around the financial aspect of participating.

Every MLM promises the possibility of earning big money to its members, and ARIIX is no different. However, if you aren’t a truly gifted salesperson, you could easily end up losing more money than you earn.

For those willing to put in the effort and succeed, ARIIX offers one surprising benefit that most MLMs don’t: an annual cost of living increase. Around once every year, your commissions as an ARIIX representative will be increased to keep up with inflation. This is an unusual perk for traditional employees, let alone MLM sellers.

Cons

As far as multi-level marketing companies go, ARIIX is an impressive business. It prioritizes product quality and provides regular cost of living adjustments. But unless you’re truly dedicated to the business, it could easily become nothing more than an expensive club.

To get started with ARIIX, you must purchase a starter kit known as the Get Fit Advanced Pack, which costs $335. Following this, you’re required to either purchase or sell at least $148 worth of products every month. You’re also required to attend a full day of training, which you must pay a fee to access.

In total, you should expect to spend around $500 just to get started. As far as startup investments go, $500 isn’t bad, but it’s more than most people have lying around. If you want to join ARIIX specifically to make money, you’d better be prepared to work hard to earn your investment back.

Unfortunately, the only effective way to earn a lot of money is to get more people to join the MLM. For most people, this means persuading their friends and family to buy your products and join the company. While this works for some, many people have found out the hard way that selling an “opportunity” like this has a way of destroying relationships. And if your friends or family choose to invest and end up losing money, they might hold it against you.

Is This MLM Right for You?

As you can see from this ARIIX review, ARIIX isn’t much different from the majority of MLMs. Although it has impressive products and offers a real opportunity to representatives, it comes with several liabilities.

If you’re very socially connected and good at selling, you might make a lot of money with ARIIX. But you should consider whether it’s truly the best choice.

In order for you to develop your skills, you should consider taking a free or paid marketing course. There are a variety of digital marketing courses you can take from businesses that can help you enhance your skills. As of writing this, over 80,000 new marketers have taken the Online Business Builder Challenge (only $7), and that might be a good starting place for you as well.

LifeVantage MLM Review: Scam or Worth It?

David Sharpe bio

When you look at the development of LifeVantage stock over the years, you can see that in the early stages, LifeVantage wasn't doing as well as it would later on. Why?

From 2003 to 2008, LifeVantage sold its products through brick-and-mortar retailers and didn't make the kinds of sales they were hoping for. By the end of 2008, the LifeVantage MLM emerged, and sales skyrocketed.

After those first few years of using the MLM business model, LifeVantage sales started to fall. Now, their sales are strong but not nearly as strong as they once were. What does that mean for LifeVantage affiliates?

At Legendary Marketer, our goal is to provide you with the latest information on marketing and online business opportunities. Now, we're going to take a deep dive into the LifeVantage MLM and uncover the reality behind this health and wellness company.

Is LifeVantage a Scam?

First, let's put your mind at ease. LifeVantage is not a scam. It is a tried and true MLM that relies on affiliate marketers to sell products and recruit even more affiliates to, you guessed it, sell more products.

Founder Darren Jensen had quite a bit of experience with the MLM business model. It's no wonder that when his products were failing to sell in a traditional retail environment, he transitioned to multi-level marketing.

LifeVantage sells products that fall under the health and wellness umbrella. They are most known for their line of dietary supplements and anti-aging creams, serums, and more. Protandim, an all-natural supplement that is designed to reduce oxidative stress and reduce aging, accounts for over half of all LifeVantage sales.

It's worth noting that Protandim has faced criticism over the years. That means that in order to sell LifeVantage, you have to stand behind a product that produces anecdotal (and disputed) effects. That being said, this is not an unusual position to be in when selling health and wellness products.

Why Become a LifeVantage Affiliate?

What is the LifeVantage opportunity? How does LifeVantage encourage people to join their movement and become a LifeVantage distributor?

For starters, LifeVantage has a relatively low enrollment fee of $50. (What they may not tell you right off the bat is that in addition to this enrollment fee, you also have to purchase a starter pack or purchase $100 worth of products.)

Once you're in, there are a few ways that you can start making money. For example, you can earn a commission rate of 30% to 40% each time you bring in a new preferred customer. You can also earn a bonus any time someone purchases a starter pack.

You can also boost your ranking, and therefore improve and increase your earning opportunities, by recruiting a downstream. That being said, recruiting a downstream is only beneficial if your downstream is meeting the expected volume of sales each week.

For the most part, LifeVantage is following a standard compensation plan that you can expect from most trustworthy MLMs. One key takeaway is that you don't have to buy a costly starter pack to enter the ring, even if you do have to make an initial investment of about $150.

How Much Are LifeVantage Affiliates Really Making?

Now, let's get to the nitty-gritty. Thousands of people are already selling LifeVantage products. We don't have to guess how much they're making, because LifeVantage offers a fairly transparent annual income disclosure statement.

What we can learn from this income disclosure statement is that there really are people out there who are making six figures per month as a LifeVantage affiliate. The drawback is that less than 0.011% of the LifeVantage team has reached this level of achievement.

How much is the vast majority of the LifeVantage team making? About 75% of current affiliates are selling at the lowest level of LifeVantage rankings, referred to as Distributors. On average, this group is making $4 a month, although the most successful Distributor in the bunch is making over $22,000 a month.

What Challenges Should You Expect From Becoming a LifeVantage MLM Affiliate?

Why is it so difficult to make real money as a LifeVantage affiliate? Let's take a quick look again at the development of LifeVantage stock.

In the years just after LifeVantage became an MLM, the company's worth soared. After about three golden years, it started to drop back down to a more modest amount.

What this tells us is that when LifeVantage products became more widely available, they sold really well. People were excited for the opportunity to give their products a shot and to give the MLM opportunity a shot, too.

Then came market saturation. Market saturation occurs when there's no one left to turn to who hasn't already been offered the opportunity to buy or sell a product. Everyone is already doing so, already gave it a shot, or already said, “No, thank you.”

Your ability to truly sell people on yourself and your products can counterbalance market saturation. You have to be able to tell a compelling story and remind people why a product is worth their interest and money, even if they'd previously formed an opinion about it. You also have to be able to do this on a mass scale and reach thousands of people all at once, or you're going to waste your efforts.

How can you unlock these marketing skills? How can you reach such a wide audience?

Let Us Help You Boost Your Online Business Skills

The LifeVantage MLM is about as typical as they come. They offer a commission on sales and increased earning opportunities in exchange for recruitment. Their products are interesting but a lot of people have already heard of them, making it more difficult to find a target audience that is automatically excited about what you're selling.

Fortunately, finding success with any online business isn't just about the products. It's about your ability to market the products effectively. Watch this free video and get the skills you need to follow the right business opportunities and turn them into a goldmine every single time.

What Is Sunrider International?

David Sharpe bio

Is Sunrider International a scam? Can you trust any MLM company for starting a home-based business of your own?

The answers to those questions could change the trajectory of your life or inspire you to search for new options. Anyone considering this type of endeavor deserves a straightforward explanation of the pros and cons.

Does a Sunrider International MLM business make sense for your business goals? Is this the best MLM company opportunity for you?

Find out today by reading this no-nonsense Sunrider International MLM review!

MLM Company 101

A multilevel marketing (MLM) company recruits driven individuals who want to start their own business and distribute their products. If you know someone who has sold Mary Kay or Amway products, then you've already encountered this type of business. Anyone with an interest in starting a home-based business can run across these types of companies often while going down Google rabbit holes.

Sunrider International Essentials

Sunrider International started in 1982 in Orem, Utah. The company operates out of Torrance, California today, and it's a private company founded by Tei-Fu Chen and Oi Lin Chen.

The Sunrider Corporation distributes herbal nutrition, home, and beauty products to individuals who want to start a home-based business. They manufacture their own products and sell them through entrepreneurs in over 50 countries.

Sunrider focuses on herbal and natural products for healthy daily living that range from food to home cleaning solutions. Business owner testimonials often focus their praise on the earning potential they've found while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Sunrider International Products

Sunrider reps focus on providing products that help people live happy and healthy lives, like other MLM companies that gained popularity in recent years. The following represents the categories of products featured in their online shop:

Food & Drinks

The drinks offer a variety of health benefits and tend to come in pre-measured packs. Options listed on their website include:

  • Plant protein shakes
  • Probiotics
  • Energy drinks
  • Cleansers
  • Sleep aids

Sunrider International makes GMO-free food packed with micronutrients and antioxidants. A few examples to consider are herbal food bars, vegan gummies, and NuPuffs snacks.

Herbal Nutrition

Sunrider offers a well-considered group of supplements to support anyone's goals. The company has individual vitamins or blends for particular health concerns. This list is a representation of the options:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D3
  • Dong Quai
  • Dandelion Root
  • Fiber capsules
  • Beauty support
  • Men's health

These types of products are common in the supplement industry, but it can be difficult to know who to trust. Sunrider holds itself to the highest standards established by the FDA and has a strong commitment to quality.

Beauty & Body

Beauty products and herbal supplements pair naturally together in a product line. One offering tends to compliment or enhance the other, and that's helpful when getting sales going for your new business. Some of the offerings listed on their website include:

  • Hair and body wash
  • Hand and body lotion
  • Aftershave
  • Cleansing foam
  • Natural deodorant
  • Mascara
  • Facial toner

Any of the herbal solutions listed above can work well with the supplement line (or start a big conversation even with a small audience). In terms of vertical integrations, Sunrider does have that baked into its business model.

Home

Natural home cleaning solutions have gained significant popularity in the last decade. Offering these types of products with other natural solutions provides a fantastic opportunity for an add-on sale. The current items available for purchase at the time of writing include:

  • Chlorine-free bleach
  • Multipurpose cleaner
  • Laundry detergent
  • Vegetable rinse

Major supplement organizations have added these to their inventory, but not everyone is on board (or taking advantage of affiliate marketing). When you're creating a home-based business, most of your customers can appreciate having this as an alternative to chemical-based solutions at the big box stores.

How Does Sunrider Make These Products?

Sunrider International publishes a nine-step process for delivering its products to distributors. Here's a high-level look at their proprietary process:

Select

The website claims that Sunrider carefully selects the parts of the plant they want to extract for products. They may use the root, seed, fruit, leaf, or even the entire plant itself.

Cleanse

After they've found the right ingredients, the manufacturers clean the herbs. Any unwanted materials like dirt or debris get washed away before entering the heart of the manufacturing process.

Enhance

Some herbs respond well to methods of preparation that include drying, hearing, or storage in cold temperatures. Sunrider even cooks some of their ingredients in honey.

Grind

Herbs need to fit exact measurements, especially for capsules, so grinding is a necessary step. Getting the ingredients to a uniform size is critical to success for any supplement.

Formulate

Herbal remedies often have proprietary methods of combining ingredients for optimal results. Sunrider claims to combine their herbs in precise ways to benefit a person's health.

Extract

Some herbs require an extra level of effort to extract the ingredients necessary for supplements. The manufacturing process should include taking the healthy ingredients for use while eliminating anything undesirable.

Concentrate

If you've tasted orange juice concentrate from the grocery store, that should give a good picture of what this step involves. Herbs can become a “juice” with the right manufacturing equipment.

Flo-Coat or Spray Dry

Once a proprietary blend has reached this stage, the juice gets sprayed into an herbal base. This step is necessary to convert the ingredients into a powder.

Package

Packaging needs to occur in a safe and controlled manner to meet strict standards. While the FDA does not technically regulate the supplement industry, American products have respect around the world for having the highest standards possible.

Are You Ready to Start a Sunrider International Business?

We hope that this guide has helped you consider the pros and cons of this MLM company. Sunrider International has a long-standing reputation as a home-based business that offers quality products. Whether you plan to make some extra cash or build an empire, you can do much worse than Sunrider in the marketplace.

Whether you want to sell supplements or something completely different, the key to success is selling yourself first. If you don't invest in the right marketing strategy, quality products alone can't bail you out of a low sales rut.

In order for you to develop your skills, you should consider taking a free or paid marketing course. There are a variety of digital marketing courses you can take from businesses that can help you enhance your skills. As of writing this, over 80,000 new marketers have taken the Online Business Builder Challenge (only $7), and that might be a good starting place for you as well.

Make It Fashion: Cabi MLM Review

David Sharpe bio

Do you love fashion? And do you love to share your favorite fashion finds with all your friends and family? If so, then you might be considering working with a fashion MLM company such as Cabi.

If you've ever searched online for the best MLM company then you know how confusing it can be. Don't worry, we've got you covered, keep reading to get an honest Cabi MLM review.

We'll also show you an alternative idea for making money online with fashion. So, as they say, make it fashion, and make money sharing your favorite fashion ideas online.

what Is Cabi?

Cabi is a network marketing fashion company that sells high-end women's clothing at independent shows. The company was founded by fashion designer Carol Anderson who wanted to move away from working with retail stores and boutiques. Along with her husband and ten friends she founded Carol Anderson by Invitation (Cabi) in 2001.

Since then the company has grown to include more than 3,500 consultants who sell over $250 million dollars of clothing each year. Independent stylists sign up to sell clothing to their friends and family in exchange for earning 25-30% of everything they sell.

 

How Compensation Works

As a network marketing company, Cabi stylists also focus on bringing in new consultants to their team. This is how stylists make the majority of their income from commissions based on how much their downline orders each month. According to their website, Cabi consultants can make between 2-8% of everything their downline sells.

This might not sound like a lot but consider that their clothing items are high-end fashion. They cater to working women who want to be able to fill their wardrobe without having to run to the mall. Each item in their fashion line runs between $65-200, so commissions can add up quickly if you have an active team.

However, there are quotas to make each season. So, if you aren't actively selling each month then you risk losing more money than you make. Each season you must purchase a minimum of $2,500 of clothing which you will then sell to your customers.

If you don't sell those clothes then you lose your investment. If you love fashion and you love sharing your fashion finds with friends, but you don't want to make a large up-front investment, then there is another way.

An Easier Way to Make Money Recommending Fashion

Affiliate marketing works similar to network marketing, except you don't have to haul any inventory to friends' houses every Saturday night.

Instead, you still share your fashion finds with your friends, but you do it online. And you don't have to purchase thousands of dollars of inventory.

To succeed in affiliate marketing, you build your following online and then share your affiliate links when you find great items that you want to share. When someone clicks on your link and makes a purchase, you make a small commission. While the commission percentages might be small, if you have a large enough following you can make great money from home.

So, if you're interested in learning how to do this, we're sharing with you our proven three-step method to online affiliate marketing.

Pick Your Platform

First, you need to choose the platform where you want to build your business. Thanks to the dozens of social media websites available, you don't even need a website to build a booming business online. From social media platforms like TikTok to YouTube and Facebook, people all over the world are building their following.

So, decide where you'll share your fashion tips, finds, and deals. Then create your profile and start to build your following. This step is crucial as people want to get advice from people they trust, so build trust and relationships with your followers online.

Share Your Favorite Fashion Styles

For fashion, you want to focus on image-friendly social sharing sites. This could include Instagram or Pinterest where you'll share beautiful, share-worthy images of your favorite fashion finds.

To do this effectively, you need to share every day and you need to share more than just links to clothes. You need to share tips for how to create amazing outfits. Share how to make your daytime workwear into evening fashionwear. Your number one job as an affiliate marketer is to build your following and share every day.

Link to Your Favorite Brands

After you've built a relationship with your followers and gained their trust as a fashionista, then you're ready to start making money. Now is when you'll share your affiliate link and encourage your followers to purchase your amazing new finds.

As a general rule of thumb for about every four or five posts, you can sell something. If your followers think that you're selling to them every time you post, they will lose interest. Give value more than you ask for a sale and your followers will trust you when you recommend your favorite fashion styles.

Make It Fashion: Its Always Fashionable to Make Money Online

There are thousands of MLM companies out there. Don't risk your hard-earned money getting scammed by one. If you're interested in making money online and building a successful business, then consider affiliate marketing instead.

Yes, you can make money online. And if you find your personal trend, you can make it fashion and style-friendly advice. We've shared with you the three steps to take to build your online business, now it's your turn to get started so you can build the fashion-forward business you've always dreamed about.

In order for you to develop your skills, you should consider taking a free or paid marketing course. There are a variety of digital marketing courses you can take from businesses that can help you enhance your skills.

Everything You Need to Know About Color Street MLM

David Sharpe bio

One of the best MLM companies to advertise towards stay-at-home moms who want to make money working from their smartphones is Color Street. You might be wondering why that is?

Well, moms are incredibly busy trying to raise their children, and they rarely get time to themselves. Color Street offers them an easy and affordable manicure that they can do in minutes. That way, they will have cute nails that can last up to two weeks even through the trials and tribulations of motherhood.

Color Street isn't only for stay-at-home moms but rather for anyone who wants to make some extra money by selling nail polish strips to friends and family through social media and by hosting parties.

Be sure to keep reading for our guide on everything you need to know about Color Street MLM.

How to Get Started Selling Color Street

Getting started selling Color Street's nail products can be a bit of a process. Yet, like most MLM companies if you already know someone that is involved it will be much easier.

People that sell Color Street are called Stylists, and you will need to know a Stylist's team that you can join. The Color Street website can help you find a Stylist in your area if you don't know any friends or family members are already selling.

Once you've found a stylist, you're ready to buy the products you'll want to sell. That means you'll initially be investing $129 of your own money before you can even make a dime. Color Street says that this is a $250 value and comes with tons of business supplies that you will need.

You're also required to pay a monthly fee of $9.95 after joining. They claim this fee is to keep your eSuite subscription active. These are fees that you need to think about investing before you can make money.

As you sell your products and gain more clients, you can achieve higher tiers within the company. You'll get titles, such as Senior Stylist, Team Leader, Director, and many more.

You will make more money as a higher rank, but sometimes this can work against you. It is a very complicated system, and you will have to work hard to maintain higher rankings.

How Do You Make Money Selling Color Street?

The number one thing you're looking for in a Color Street MLM review is how you'll make money by selling the products. One thing that makes Color Street a good MLM company is their commission rate is fairly high.

You'll find that when you sell products you will earn 25% of the sales you make. That money is paid out at the end of each week.

Another great part of selling with Color Street is that there are bonuses too! If you hit a high sales volume, such as $600 or more, you can earn up to an additional 10% commission.

You can also earn money by recruiting other Stylists to join your team and start selling Color Street. You can earn 3% of the commission from Stylists that are just joining.

How Can Someone Be Succesful Selling Color Street?

If you think selling Color Street sounds good to you, you might be wondering how you can become successful selling the products. There are different ways that you can go about selling these nail products.

One of the first and most beneficial ways is by hosting parties. Pre-COVID, many Stylists were able to have parties at their homes where they could invite over guests and demonstrate the nail strips. After the demonstration, guests are interested in what you're selling and will be more inclined to purchase your products.

The problem with these types of parties is that people will expect food, drinks, and sometimes even games so that they're entertaining. You'll find that the costs of hosting parties to get more sales and customers can add up quickly if you're not careful.

Currently, with the state of our world, many parties have switched to online through Zoom or Facebook live. Some Stylists have found that this isn't as effective as an in-person party, but it does cut down on the costs of hosting a party.

Another way to be successful with selling Color Street nails is by having a large social media following. When you're first starting, a lot of your clients are going to be your friends and family members. If you're not careful, they can start to get annoyed and think you're always trying to sell to them.

Instead, to be successful, you need to branch out and start marketing to other people that will want to buy Color Street nails. Grow your social media following on all platforms so that more people will become interested in what you're selling.

David Sharpe bio

Everyone who has an entrepreneurial mind seems to be looking for a side hustle these days, or even an entirely new career. If you've always envisioned yourself as a business owner MLM companies may be your best bet for bringing in more cash.

There's no lack of MLM companies to invest in, the trouble is finding the right one for you. Pampered Chef MLM sells high-end cookware, cookbooks, and food products. Plenty of people are buzzing about the company, but you may be wondering if it's right for you.

If you're interested in a kitchen MLM or a food MLM, Pampered Chef could be just what you're looking for. Here's our take on whether or not you can make money selling their products, so keep reading to find out more.

A Brief History of Pampered Chef MLM

One thing that makes Pampered Chef unique is that it has a solid history in the business world. Unlike other MLMs, like LuLaRoe and Scentsy, Pampered Chef isn't a recently founded MLM. The company was founded in 1980, so they have a little over 40 years of experience in the food industry.

The founder, Doris Christopher, was an avid cook that wanted to find a way to educate other people about the best ways to utilize their kitchen and utensils. When Doris threw her first cooking party she wanted to share her expertise with her friends. Little did she know that she was about to start a business empire.

After taking some inspiration from Tupperware, she launched her own line of high-end utensils and cookware. The company is headquartered in Illinois, but they have a presence in the UK, Canada, Mexico, France, and Germany.

Can I Make Money With Pampered Chef?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes, but that's only if you handle your business the right way (more on that soon).

If you're looking for one of the best MLM companies to work for, consider working for Pampered Chef. One major benefit of selling Pampered Chef products is that you earn a direct commission on what you sell. A lot of other retail-based MLMs base their profit models off of resale profit.

Selling Pampered Chef products can feel like a regular job. The company pays its consultants twice a month. You also don't have to worry about deliveries, paying for host benefits, or having to deal with high overhead costs.

Although you do get bonuses for recruiting other people to sell, you don't earn the majority of your profits through referrals. This allows people to hyper-focus on selling the product itself instead of trying to sell the business.

How to Make Money With Pampered Chef

You know that Pampered Chef is a legitimate company and now you have a little insight into how people earn their money. Now that we covered that, let's dive into ways you can get the most out of your Pampered Chef sales.

This may come as a surprise to you, but you don't have to be a master chef to sell these products. All you need to do is use the right sales techniques to attract customers.

If you're serious about selling Pampered Chef and want to bring in money, here are our recommendations on how you can maximize your profits.

Utilize Social Media

Social media has become such a vital tool for people in the sales industry. If you aren't already active on social media, now is a great time to start building your presence.

Pictures are nice ways to show off products, but videos that demonstrate the right way to use them are even better. You'll have a more interactive way to engage potential customers, and the videos you make could be referenced later if people need ideas on how to use their products.

If you really want to kick your social media use into high gear, consider experimenting with paid social ads.

Social media advertising is surprisingly affordable and very easy to manage on your own. Start by targeting people interested in food and cooking in your immediate area. From there you can gather more metrics around what copy and visuals work and find even better ways to reach new potential customers.

Know Your Products

You may not have to be a world-class cook to sell Pampered Chef, but you should know the best ways to use your products. Before you start selling products at parties and events, we highly recommend taking some time to understand what you're selling.

Go to their website and read up on their product descriptions. Take note of any special features (non-stick coating, BPA free, etc) so you can bring them up during your pitches.

We also think it's a good idea to try to use what you're selling at least once. That way you'll be able to give people a good idea of what it's like to use what they're buying.

Find Your Audience

When some people join an MLM, they make the mistake of trying to pitch their product to anyone who will listen to them. Trying to convince people that would never be interested in your product isn't just time-consuming, it's eating into your profits.

If you're starting off with selling to family and friends, only try to sell to the ones that you know enjoy cooking. Get an idea of what their needs are in the kitchen, and find ways for Pampered Chef products to help them.

Starting off with this route can help you learn a lot about target customers that you aren't already familiar with. This can make attracting new customers a lot easier.

Find Your MLM Match

Out of all the MLMs you could sell for, Pampered Chef MLM is a pretty solid choice. Their revenue model emphasizes selling products over gaining people, and there are plenty of ways for you to successfully sell it.
