SeaAloe vs Worm Ranching

Does worm ranching provide passive
or residual income?

I don't know.

My SeaAloe business provides both
passive and residual income.

Passive income because I set it up
about a year ago and I still get
income from it without working in

it every day.

Residual income because I have
customers reordering and I get
paid every time they order.

Anyway, this is an update on
my worm farming post...

I have this thing on my blog,
I forgot what you call it...

Anyway, it provides analytics about
the visitors to my blog.

One of the things it tells me, is

what a person was searching
for when they landed on my blog.

Folks, I am here to report to you
that people ARE searching for

worm farming and worm ranching

And, they are ending up on my site.

I do hope that one of those folks
will call me so that I can get an
update on the state of the

worm ranching industry.

A SeaAloe Push Button Business

Does your business let you get
paid at the push of a button?

If not, you're missing out.

People "push a button" and
from me every day.

They push a button, and I
get an email that says,

"Anna Montana placed a $100 order."

"Buckwheat Zideco placed a $300 order."

Then, every Wednesday, I get a
commission check in the mail.

No calling strangers and trying to sell
them something they don't want.

I don't know what kind of business
you're looking for...

But this is my kind of business.

It took a little time and money
to set it up about a year ago...

And now it pays me every week.

Kind of like building an apartment complex.

You plan it, then you build it...

Then you sit back and collect rent.

Do a little maintenance every once in a while...

If SeaAloe goes to direct deposit,
I won't even have to drive to the
bank to deposit my checks.

A very wise business man once said,

"Define your lifestyle and create a system
to earn enough money to support it."

I'm glad I listened...

Are you listening?

SeaAloe in Margaritaville

Want the Jimmy Buffet lifestyle?

Internet Marketing may be the answer.

It was for me.

Starting a business of your own today has
never been easier, cheaper or faster.

Setting up your own Internet-based SeaAloe
is cheaper than setting up a snow
ball stand or buying the equipment to get
into the lawn mowing business.

And, your SeaAloe business has the
potential to generate life-changing

What are some of the advantages of
setting up a
SeaAloe business?

- Minimal start-up capital required

- Run it from anywhere

(I'm usually in a at the beach
or at a camp on the river.)

- No major technical skills or education required

(Heck, I'm as technology-challenged as
a person can be in this day and age.)

- Good credit not required

- You can be in business and generating
income in under an hour

- You can make money 24 hours a day,
365 days a year, even when you're
on vacation or sleeping

- You can run your entire business online

(My friends and neighbors think I'm
a drug smuggler or something...
I don't seem to work, am always traveling
and have plenty of money, lol.)

It doesn't get any better than this.

Your Product Costs Too Much

"Your product costs too much."

You ever notice who it is that
says that to you most often?

Who is it that thinks your
product costs too much?

I've been in the network marketing
industry for over 20 years...

I've built my businesses both ways -

Leading with the business, and

Leading with the product...

I have about 2,000 customers right now.

You know who it is that tells me
my product "costs too much"?

It's the MLMers.

Not the consumers.

The MLMers.

When you build your business focusing
on bringing in MLMers, your business
is built on shifting sand.

The MLMer doesn't want your product.

The MLMer wants to be a millionaire
without buying anything...

(Or doing anything for that matter.)

You can have the MLMers.

Give me a real customer any day.

A customer who wants my product
because it is a good product.

You can make money with MLMers.

Just always remember, the MLMers are
just passing through your business.

But your customers stay.

Want real residual income?

Customers create real residual income.

MLMers create temporary income, or at best,
"ongoing" income, but not residual income.

Do You Want To Make $10,000 in the Next 30 Days?

Do you get people calling you asking you that?

You ever ask them if they made
$10,000 in the last 30 days?

I had a guy call me just last night...

Used the Tracy Biller script right down
to the chuckle in the right place.

You know the script...

"Don't worry [chuckle] I'm not going
to bend your ear or try to sell you

[Right, so why did you call?]

"If I could show you a way to make $10,000
in the next 30 days, could you make time
for a 45 minute conference call tomorrow"

I replied, "If you could show me you made
50 cents in the last 30 days I'll be on the call."

The guy goes, "Huh?"

I said again, "If you made 50 cents in

the last 30 days, I'll be on your call."

He says, "Well, the man doing the call
made a lot more than that."

I says,

"Then how are YOU gonna show me
how to make $10,000 in 30 days if
YOU can't make 50 cents in 30 days?"

People, do you GET IT?

And you actually wonder why

MLM has a bad name?

Make YOUR business work before you

make a fool of yourself like this guy did.

And so many more otherwise good people
do every night making these foolish calls.

You don't have to be making $10,000 a month...

You just have to have a product that
a few people will actually buy and
like enough to re-order.

That's all.

If you make 50 cents a month,
you're way ahead of the game.

I'm not kidding.

Once you get your business to break-even,
you have a legitimate business...

And, you can stay in the game, because
you're not going in the hole.

I have a SeaAloe business

that pays me very well.

The first thing I did when I got in business
was focus on getting some customers to

buy my order every month.

Then, I could focus on making $10,000+
a month because I wasn't going in the
hole every month and having a bunch of
product stacking up that my wife was
fussing about.

You can't make $10,000 a month until
you learn how to make $1 a month...

Just like you can't have an oak tree
until you first get an acorn...

And most people don't get married until
after they've had a first date.

This is not new information, folks.

It's even in the Bible...

Seed time and harvest.

Sowing and reaping.

If you just get this simple "how the
Universe works" principle, you can
make money...

(If you have a legitimate product.)

SeaAloe is an all natural whole food liquid
vitamins and minerals dietary supplement.

People actually buy it and re-order it.

You can make money with a product
that people re-order every month.

How much money do you think a guy makes
that calls up strangers trying to sell them a

"$10,000 in 30 days" pyramid scheme?

SeaAloe - you can sell this stuff.

Does Your Product Sell Itself?

Products don't sell themselves.

Advertising sells products.

Marketing sells products.

People sell products.

If you got into an MLM business because
they told you the product "sells itself"...

I already know how much money you're making.


If you want to make money with a home based
marketing and distribution business, be sure
you get involved with a company like SeaAloe
and honest people that talk about marketing,
and not about products that "sell themselves."

If a product sold itself...

WHY would they need you?

SeaAloe is a product that
people WANT and BUY.

But, it still takes MARKETING
to get them to do it.

The truth on MLM is this:

You can get people to buy your
product "automatically"...

But, only after you set up
a marketing funnel for the

customers to flow through.

You're Asking the WRONG Questions


The guy asks...

"How many milligrams are in your stuff?"

"What's your ORAC value?"

"Do you ship to Zimbabwe?"

(Like he knows anyone there.)


"Who's gonna buy this stuff?"

"How we gonna sell it to them?"

"Why will they buy it?"

"What's our sales process?"

You ask wrong questions,
you get wrong answers.

You ask the right questions,
you just might make some
money in this game.

Water Filters, Diet Pills, Phone Cards...

What do they all have in common?

HUGE companies and fortunes

were made RETAILING.

New Vision

Billion Dollar companies.

Success leaves clues.

Notice ALL the BIG network marketing
companies retail to the masses...

They all follow a timeless sales PROCESS:


Expose your customer to your product...

They will come to KNOW you,
LIKE you, and TRUST you.

Some will upgrade to auto-delivery.

Some will upgrade to part-time distributor

Some will upgrade to full-time distributor.

In MLM, there is usually never a sales process.

They quite often don't have a legitimate product
that will sell in the market place...

So, what are they selling?

A money game.

Otherwise known as a PYRAMID.
Network Marketing is a BUSINESS.
A real business has a real product
that real people buy because it
has value.

If you have a real product that has
real value, people will like it and
value it.

"It's easier to sponsor a happy customer
than to recruit a complete stranger."

Some will say, "Great vitamins,
can I make money selling them?"

This is network marketing.

MLM or Network Marketing?


1. You join a "program"

2. You call up friends and strangers and pitch
them on getting rich in your new deal.

(You have NEVER personally sold any of your product
or even made a dime of profit, but the product "sells itself,"

"everybody needs it," so-and-so made $23,000.00 her
first month, and she's a 19 year old day care worker...)


1. You buy in to a legitimate distributorship.

2. You learn how to market and make money
from someone who is actually doing it.

3. You get a few customers that

actually purchase your product.

4. You get into positive
cash flow.

5. You begin recruiting a "sales force" of people
that want to make extra or full-time income with
a legitimate home-based business.

Think I'll go the Network Marketing route myself.

Katie Couric's "Recession"

Katie Couric wants you to think we're in a recession.

I guess it helps her sinking ratings.

How to Set Up Your SeaAloe Business

1. Create a picture of what your business
will look like when it is finally done, set up

and running the way you want it to.

How will the business look?

What will the business do?

2. Focus on results, not on work.

The focus of a business is to free

the owner from working in it.

Does Your Local Health Food Store Sell Your SeaAloe?

Need more volume for your SeaAloe business?

Need help moving your qualifying order?

Need new customers that you would
have never found yourself?

Need more customers that
3-6-12 bottles at a time?

Go see your local health food store.

Selling SeaAloe to a health food store
is actually easier than selling it to
Aunt Suzie.

Because your local health food store owner
is a business person, and can see the
value of the SeaAloe product.

Don't go to the national chain
health food stores,
for two reasons...

One, SeaAloe doesn't allow you
to sell to national chains.

Two, you'll grow old and go broke waiting
for the national chains to pay you.

Trust me on this one, I've got personal experience.

The secret to selling to a health food store
is NOT talking MLM mumbo-jumbo.

They're not interested, and it
will turn them off bigtime.

They are just interested in a product that sells.

And, the SeaAloe liquid vitamin product does sell.

That's all you need to talk about.

A couple of health food stores can

make your business healthy.

The Truth on MLM and Worm Farming

Why do otherwise sensible people get into
a network marketing business and toss all
common sense out the window?

They want to make $20,000.00 a month,
but don't want to do what it takes to

make $200 a month...

They want to make $20,000.00 a month
but don't want to order any products.

They want to make $20,000.00 a month
but don't want to sell anything...

They want to make $20,000.00 a month
but don't want to invest in advertising...

They want to make $20,000.00 a month
but don't want to invest anything in
their business...

Yet, I imagine they DO want someone else
to do all these things...

Network Marketing is a business just like
a snowball stand or a health food store.

The only way to make money in any business
is to sell products or services.

The ONLY way.

Check the classified ads in your local paper...

Look at the "Business Opportunities."

See what other business opportunities are out there...

See how much they cost.

A snowball stand costs $10,000.00 to $20,000.00.

You think the guy selling snowballs

is earning $20,000.00 a month?

My lawn maintenance guy told me

his lawn mower costs $11,000.00...

And he has two of them on his trailer
(that cost a couple thousand)...

And lots of weed eaters and stuff also.

Probably has at least $30,000.00 or more invested.

To cut grass...

In the hot sun..

(And you think you got it tough,
got to place some ads and

stuff like that... )

You think the guy cutting your grass
is earning $20,000.00 a month?

Do they advertise those worm farming kits in your newspaper?

$3,000.00+ will put you in the worm growing business.

They even advertise those things in the USA Today.

That's because people are buying them!

I've yet to meet a worm rancher

making $20,000.00 per month.

I actually talked with a fellow that bought one,
and is trying to make a go of it...

I asked him how it was going...

He said the worm market was "depressed right now".

The guy does look at the big picture,
I'll sure give him that.

The magic of MLM is that you don't have
to invest very much, and you don't have
to sell very much and you don't have to

grow worms.

But you do have to sell something,
or else are you really in business?

How much do you need to sell?

Well, at least as much as it takes
to earn commissions on your sales
force (downline and customers).

Which is not very much, no matter
what product you're marketing.

For more information on How to Sell
Your MLM Products, check out:

The Cash Flow Strategy

The bottom line is...

There is no other business with the
ease of entry, and as low investment,
where you possibly earn as much money
as you can in network marketing.

So your first step when you "open the doors"
to your new network marketing business is
to just find enough customers to buy your
monthly order from you.

That's all.

Then, everything else will fall into place.

How To Build Your SeaAloe Business

You can’t grow your business without
new people looking at it, and there
are only four ways to find new people…

1. You can call on your friends and family.

You definitely should do this.

Don't look for your friends and family
to make you wealthy, but, you should
at least show your product and/or
business to them.

You'll probably make some sales, and
you'll definitely get some experience.

However, unless you're the president of the
Chamber of Commerce, you'll soon run out

of people to talk to.

2. You can work the “three-foot rule.”

This is a favorite of the Amway people,
where you go to the mall and hit on
complete strangers.

Believe it or not, there are still
a lot of people doing this…

I don’t think you’re one of them.

3. You can purchase leads.

The major challenge here is, finding
a good source and getting your leads
at a reasonable price.

In the past, it has not been possible
to find either good leads or a good
price on good leads.

4. You can generate your own leads.

This is the BEST way to find qualified
people to show your business and/or
products to. This method takes a lot
of know-how to get set up.

I do this.

How do you generate your own leads?

You advertise.

Where do you advertise?

A few good places are:

Local weekly papers


Online press releases


Posting videos

How do you learn how to do these
and other forms of advertising?

There is an easy-to-read manual
Building on a Budget.

It will teach you everything you need
to know about how to advertise for

leads on a shoestring budget.

You can get a series of FREE videos
that tell you all about it...

Who's Answering the Phone at SeaAloe?

Everyone that answers the phone at SeaAloe
has at least 5 years experience in liquid

That's powerful.

Isn't the person that answers the phone
the most important person in the whole
company when you have a question or
a challenge of some sort?

I know of one major network marketing company
that doesn't even answer the phone!

They always let it go to voicemail by design
so that they can call you back at their
convenience, whenever that may be...

That's sad.

A real business is customer-driven.

SeaAloe is a customer-driven company.

And it shows.

Who's answering the phone when you have a challenge?

SeaAloe Business Tip: There Are 2 Ways To Do Network Marketing

There are two ways to build your network
marketing business, and they both work.

You can use one or both methods,
depending on a variety of factors,
(not the subject of this article).

Network Marketing Method #1

You can contact your friends and family
and call complete strangers and try to
convince them that you have the best
opportunity or product in the land and
that they should buy it from you.

= OR =

Network Marketing Method #2

You can position yourself so that people
that WANT what you have will either
go to your website and order or
CALL YOU for more information.

Either way, the only way to make money in
ANY business, whether MLM or otherwise,
is for people (customers) to BUY what you
are selling.

So, all you have to do is choose HOW
you want to get your customers and
then "just do it."

It really is just that simple.

Now, if you're interested in Method #1,
there are lots of people willing to sell

you "leads".

Most if not all of them are worse
than worthless, unless you are a
skilled tele-marketer.

The best leads are leads that

you generate yourself.

If you're interested in Method #2,
here's a FREE Marketing Report
that will
show you how to do it:

Dead Downlines Don't Lie

If you need help with your business,
give me a call (daytime only please,
I don't "work" at night.)

I have built a very successful SeaAloe business
using Method #2 exclusively.

I can show you how to do it too.

Your SeaAloe Business Pays You Weekly

Would you work at a job all month long and
then wait another 3 weeks to get paid?

Would you sell Beanie Babies all month long and

not expect to get paid for another 3 weeks after
the end of the month?

What's up with working hard and not
getting paid for up to 7 weeks?

Nobody would put up with this in the real world.

Yet, this is exactly how most MLM companies
pay their commissions.

What's up with that?

You pay them IN ADVANCE for your products, don't you?

It's not like they have any accounts receivable...

So, WHY do they hold your money so long?

Maybe you should ask them.

Thank goodness that doesn't happen
with your SeaAloe business.

Your SeaAloe commission check is paid weekly,
and mailed to you every Monday.

You can also qualify for an override bonus
that is paid monthly.

But, you are paid weekly for your SeaAloe sales.

I have a check in my mailbox every Wednesday morning.

That's a real blessing.

I look forward to Wednesdays.

Could you use an extra check every Wednesday?

you can start getting checks in the mail

Why Has MLM Quit Working For Most People?

MLM is a great business model.

And, it used to work great!

That was back when people actually had a

great product to bring to the marketplace
and they actually marketed a product.

What has MLM evolved into now?

Well, what did your upline tell you to do
in the last business you got into, or

maybe you're still in it now?

Let me guess...

Get some leads and call them and tell them
you can show them how to get wealthy...

Get some "time and money freedom"...

(You haven't even gotten your product yet,
and you're supposed to tell your friends
and family how great this all is?)

Do you have any time and money freedom now?

Does your upline have any?

So why are so few people achieving this
time and money freedom that everyone

in MLM talks about?

Well, maybe it's because MLM has for the most part
evolved into a telemarketing "business".

You know any telemarketers with

any "time and money freedom"?

All the telemarketers I know go to a job everyday
and work for about $8.00 an hour.

Oops, except for the telemarketers that
"own their own" MLM business.

They're going in the hole telemarketing.

They may as well go get a part-time job
at a real telemarketing business.

At least they'd make $8 and hour,
and not have to buy their leads.

So, does this about sum it up:

1. A guy or gal called you on the phone (telemarketed you).

2. Sold you on the DREAM of "buying your life back", "being
your own boss", getting some "time and money freedom."

3. Then, told you to buy some leads, and call them
(they call that telemarketing) and SELL THEM on
this idea of "buying your life back", "being your own

boss", getting some "time and money freedom."

Now I may not be the sharpest guy around, but to me,
this sounds like a "business" of telemarketing...

Selling a telemarketing business to people

that don't want to be telemarketers...

Getting them to sell a telemarketing business
to the next set of folks that didn't really want

to be telemarketers either.


It's almost enough to confuse a politician.

So, you get in this so-called "business"...

You don't know how to make a dime...

And you're supposed to start right out calling
your friends and family to get them into the
scheme along with you...

And you have people talking about
the "NFL Club" (No Friends Left)...

Gee, I wonder why.

This doesn't even make sense folks.

Note to All Telemarketers:

Please don't get me wrong...

If you happen to BE a telemarketer,
then this business model WILL work
very well for YOU.

It's all the OTHER folks that
it WON'T work for.

How about a REAL BUSINESS scenario?

You get into a real business distributorship,
with a real product, that real people actually
want and buy.

You learn how to make money legitimately,
from someone that is actually marketing
a real product, and not calling people up
to join a telemarketing pyramid.

Make a profit with your own business,
before you bring in more people.

If you can't make any money with your business,
why would you want to pass this mess on to
someone else?

Does that make any sense?

The SeaAloe product is a product that people
seek out and purchase every day.

The SeaAloe business opportunity
is a business that makes sense.

1. Order a case of SeaAloe and get some customers first.

2. Then, after you are making a profit in your business,
that is the time to expand your business and bring in
new marketing affiliates.

You have an honest business to show them.

Not a telemarketing scheme where no one but
the guys in the ads are making any money.

SeaAloe business is a REAL BUSINESS
