Cash For Clunkers Program Still Lives

The Cash For Clunkers Program was a great success from the car dealership perspective and from the customer perspective as well. It was a win-win, giving people something they needed and giving the auto business an infusion of activity and income.

Now the official government cash for clunkers program is over. But the idea and the value still lives. Cash for clunkers allowed people to trade in something that no longer worked in their lives, add a financial investment to that trade and walk away with what they wanted and needed.

What if you could perform that same operation in other areas of your life?

Would it interest you to give up some things that are no longer working for you, and trade them for something that is more useful and beneficial?

I certainly would and I can't imagine that anyone would say no to question like that!

What would you trade in?

A job that takes too much energy away from your family in exchange for a career that offers money and time?

Unemployment income that barely covers the bills in exchange for a good paycheck?

A home business that is barely breaking even for one that makes it easy to cover your overhead and make a good living wage or even part time income?

If any of these rings a bell for you, you may find what you are looking for in this invitation.

Your Invitation

This is an exclusive opportunity to be on the front
lines with a most amazing company,
(Coffee and Tea are just the beginning)

I am so excited to share this opportunity with you! I do appreciate
you are taking the time to learn more about Tikanii.

We are a new company, (you probably will only find a few of our
founding members pages on google), we are setting high standards
and solving the biggest issues that plague the network marketing
and home based business industry today.

My guess is that you know what I am talking about. Most home
businesses fail do to lack of revenues and expensive marketing.
You never make any money. Along with several other factors;
the market is not responsive, or poor leadership and training may
have been the issue.

Maybe it was that no one really took action and developed the
right mind set. Mostly it was because you never made the income
you expected, and most likely deserved.

Believe me its all going to change. It already has.

Everything Good Begins With a Story

Tikanii began as a question. We knew, from over 70 years of combined
experience in the industry, that the same problems were occurring over
and over again in most network marketing companies, even with the
seemingly most successful.

These problems were preventing distributors and team leaders from
achieving success. Our goal was to solve the problems and create an
opportunity where everyone wins. A network marketing company
developed by distributors and for distributors.

We started with a mission and then carefully selected the right product
with extensive research and discovery. We know we have created
something very unique, an business that is systematically proven to achieve
positive results. And with positive results comes certainty.

And with certainty there is more belief, more potential, more action
and thus more results.

We are offering you an opportunity to be paid fairly and treated as the valued participant that you are. The product line we offer just makes sense for everyone, especially in our present economic climate. Do you know anyone who is not familiar with Coffee and Tea?

We thoroughly researched the market prior to choosing our product line. Our quality and delivery system is high end and unique. In fact, we have an exclusive in the network marketing industry for our products...coffee, tea and brewing system.

Sound good to you?

The Tikanii Cash for Clunkers Program will give you the tools and engine you need to trade in what's not working in your life for more income, more time and more flexibility.

Click this link immediately, fill out you contact info and a leader from the the
Top Tikanii Team
will contact you shortly.

If you're just too excited to wait for more details, call 970-209-7473 right now and ask for Deborah.

Is Attraction Marketing A Waste of Time?

I call myself an attraction marketer. In my mind that means that I prefer to present myself as a giver of value to other like-minded people and allow a business relationship to develop from that position rather then operate as someone who pitches and sells.

Those who follow me may then say, "But I've seen you advertise a product or a service or an opportunity." And the answer is, "yes". The difference is that I share what I have with those who have ALREADY ASKED to receive information from me. There is a very fundamental difference between that and soliciting people who have never before met or heard of Deborah Tutnauer.

The effort required to be a successful attraction marketer is one comprised of time and thoughtfulness. I truly value the people who I meet online in various ways. I want to witness their success and be part of helping them in their journey. Sometimes their journey will never result in a financial reward for me, and I am truly find with that. In the world of karma and law of attraction mentality, what goes around comes around.

My online business association with Fred may be just what Fred needs to jump start his plan and move to the next level. Fred becomes an online friend and goes forward to succeed in his business. I am thrilled for him. Later on, Fred might recommend me to Mary who is in a different position and ultimately joins my primary business. Now I've helped Fred and Mary and also created good karma in the world and developed a new business associate. It works quite well this way.

Attraction Marketing takes time, but pays it back in spades. By the time someone joins my network marketing organization they have become far more connected to me than just a lead or a prospect. What comes from that is a very solid and committed organization of people who are serious of this particular business and invested on many levels in their own success and the success of the team. I'd rather have 10 people like this than 100 people who join me because of hype, pressure or sales manipulation. What about you?

I Have Something to Confess...

Really...I have been keeping a secret from you, my audience, my business associates, my friends, for almost 9 months now.

It's been hard for me and I've let things slip now and then. But I've been sworn to secrecy and I've kept my promise about keeping quiet.

By the beginning of next week at the earliest, or the end of August at the latest, I'll finally be able to spill the beans.

But here is what I can tell you now, so I don't explode with excitement.

I am the leader of a power network marketing team. My upline is the Founder and CEO of our company. (So he's not really an upline in the normal sense). After 42 years as a million dollar ultra successful distributor in some very well known MLM's, he has started his own company and I am Front Line to the company.

We have a copyrighted compensation plan that was designed from scratch, over 7 months. The plan was created to solve the main problems that prevent people from achieving their goals in network marketing.

1. Attrition
2. Too many "hoops" to jump through
3. "Holes" in the plan that leave people hanging on between the fast start period and the time they begin making meaningful residual
4. Too much built in breakage back to the company
5. A mind-set that makes people think they can just "hold" a spot and someone will build their down line for them
6. Too much going out for auto-ship and not enough coming in to cover that cost
7. Customers not being valued as just customers (Long term residual is created by having a 70:1 customer to business builder ratio in the big long term picture)
8. A product that is used primarily by business builders, but does not appeal easily and for the long term to the average customer

There's more...
Our product line will make you open your eyes and scratch your head in amazement.


Because you'll be thinking, "Why didn't someone do this before..this is absolutely brilliant!"

It's recession proof. People require no explanation. The market is proven to be growing everyday, even in our present economy. Our presentation/form of the product sits at the beginning of a known wave in our product industry. In two years, most households in North America will have or want what we are offering..and we are the ONLY network marketing company who has it.

Gosh...I just want to spill the beans so badly!!!

But I can't.

Not here on the internet anyway. But there's a loophole...I can tell you every detail in a one-on-one conversation. In fact I've been doing that for the past few months and already have a team in place ready to hit the road running when our product ships for the first time (7 days from now).

So I can talk to you too...and if you like what we are doing and I like what you have to offer, you can become one of the first 100 distributors in the company. Not a bad offer.

Go here for a place to send me your info. You'll get to see a video I made and a basic lead capture page that I'm sharing with my team for the time being.

That link again is right here.

Of course you could just wait a few more weeks and we'll be all over the internet. But then you'd miss out on insider information along with one of the very top spots in the company.

That would not be good business

Cheating Husband Tied Up and Super-Glued

Please Note> I swiped this email’s subject line
from the cover of a National Enquirer magazine.

How does this risqué checkout stand tabloid pertain
to you growing a successful home-based business?

You’ll have to keep reading to find out! :-)

(Special Offer at the End of this Post--Don't Miss It!)

I just read a killer article that revealed
a practical – yet powerful – copywriting
trick I just can’t horde all to myself.

The article’s author, David Garfinkel,
eloquently nicknamed it the “C-factor.”

And you can use it pretty much anywhere
(your website, blog, emails, articles,
yeah, even your tweets) to develop...

Genuine Friendships With Potential
Buyers And Business-Builders!


(Because when people like you, and trust you,
they’ll naturally want to do business with you!)

So what’s the “C-factor?”


David strongly suggests to look at copywriting
as a conversation you’re having with your reader.

Or if you’re writing audio it’s with your listener.

Or if you’re creating video it’s with your viewer.

Copywriting = Conversation.

He went on to stress that if you want to
build trust with prospects over the internet...

(People who don’t know you, and have never met you)

And then subtly persuade them to take whatever
action you want them to take...

You have to become aware of this principle! :-)

Then you have to learn how to actually do it.

How To Write To Someone As If You
Were Talking Face-To-Face With Them


Probably easier said than done, right?

Well, towards the end of the article David
made an unusual recommendation that will help.

Here’s what he said:

“Study the way they write in The National Enquirer.”

If you’re a little surprised by this piece of
“expert advice,” believe me, I sort of was too!

But then, it suddenly hit me.

The writing style in this cheap tabloid is like...

Hot Gossip Between Two People
Whispering In Loud Hot Whispers!


Which David says is a lot like the way you
want your copywriting to be.

You want it to be like you’re telling your
close friend about a really exciting secret.

Do you remember the principle?

Copywriting = Conversation.

Yes, you got it! :-)

Having said that, let me remind you about...

The Once-In-A-Lifetime Opportunity
That’s In Front Of You Right Now!


(I know that’s a bold claim - but it’s true,
and I’ll prove it to you in a second here.)

I’m talking about Ann Sieg and David Garfinkel’s
“The Ultimate Copywriting Crash Course,” which
became available just a couple minutes ago.

Click here to sign-up right now.

(Remember, there are only 350 available seats.)

To make a long story short

For six straight weeks, Ann’s having David
supply ALL of her team members with the
core principles they need to know to...

Quickly Write Persuasive Sales
And Lead-Generating Messages!


And you have the chance to pull up a chair
alongside them and (interactively) learn
from one of the best, most in-demand,
copywriting coaches in the world.

(Without actually being a member of her team.)

I also heard David’s going to be throwing in
over 50 of the most influential “drag-and-drop”
templates from his priciest ($1197) copy course.

Plus, he’s going to include some brand-new
ones especially for this six-week course!

Luckily, all this is very affordable.

For just a short period of time, you’ve got the
chance to get the condensed, accelerated, version
of the same training Ann Sieg paid $35,000.00 for...

For Just Pennies
On The Dollar!


Yes, you got that right.

You can get in right now for only $197 bucks.

(Which is the lowest price David has offered a
complete copywriting course for since 2000, when
he released “Killer Copy Tactics” with Mark Joyner.)

Here’s the sign-up link again.

As you might have guessed, Ann’s extending
this special invitation to ALL her followers.

And David is too.

Combine their fan-bases and you’re talking
about tens (if not hundreds) of thousands
of people all receiving word about this.

Which Means It’s
Going To Sell Out Fast!


(I’m kind of stating the obvious, I know.)

Anyways, I wanted to give you the “heads up”
about this just in case you’re interested.

If you are, go here for all the details.

Special Offer: Because I feel so strongly about this course and because I'll be taking it right along with you, I wanted to give something special to those of you who enroll through the link in this email.

Don't Read This Yet.....Release is on Monday

Sign ups on Monday morning for the David Garfinkel copywriting course are going to intense. There are only 350 slots available for this course and it is being marketed to a list of over 30,000 people.

My responsibility is to you...so I wanted to give you a "heads up" so that you can grab a space in David's copywriting webinar series..if you want one. Some people won't initially understand the value, while others have been around writing and marketing long enough to know that good copywriting can make the difference in almost everything. I personally plan to take this course. In fact I've rearranged my schedule to make sure I don't miss even one session.

When you wake up monday morning, there will be a post on this blog giving you all the details about the course and the link to reserve your spot. In terms of dollar...think about the money you make online right now. If you can increase the percentage of people who respond to your call for action--be it making a purchase or opting into a list or joining an opportunity--by even a few percentage points, your income will increase substantially. Do the math..here is an illustration.

Let's say you're selling a $60 product and it costs you
$20 to get 100 visitors to your site.

(I know we're talking about social media traffic here but
just stay with me for a second)

Now let's also say your website has a conversion rate of
1%. So every time you send 100 visitors to your site,
you make 1 sale.

That means for every 100 website visitors, you sell 1
product at $60 a piece, which is $60 of revenue. Right?

But hang on because it costs you $20 just to get those
visitors, and the commission you make on that product
is only $30.

So what REALLY matters is your PROFIT, which is just $10.
With me so far? Okay, now watch this...

Let's say you could "magically" increase your conversion
rate to 2%. Your profits would double right?

Wrong! It would be much better than that!

For every 100 visitors you now sell 2 products at $60 each,
which is $120 in revenue. Your commission on these two
products is now $60 but it still only costs you $20
to get that traffic.

So your PROFIT is now $40.

In other words...



It gets even better.

If you do the math, you'll see how your profits can
exponentially grow much more quickly than the conversion

Going from a 1% to a 5% conversion rate increases profits
a staggering 1,200% (from $10 to $130)!

And the best part is, that's with THE SAME amount of traffic...
every 100 visitors!

So how does this apply to social marketing?

Well, instead of paying $20 for 100 visitors, just insert an
hour of your time.

(Of course the great thing about social marketing is that
it may only take you an hour to create a couple articles
or a video, but those pieces of residual content can
continue to generate a couple hundred free visitors for
you every month, sometimes for years.)

So now what happens if you increase your conversion rate
from say, 1% to 3%?



Here's how it looks with the same $60 product and a $30

100 visitors (1 hour) x 3% conv rate = $90 profits

With a 1% conversion rate, you have to work THREE TIMES
as hard to get THREE TIMES the amount of traffic to make
THE SAME amount of money!

300 visitors (3 hours) x 1% conv rate = $90 profit
Where else can you instantly triple your own hourly

Increasing your conversion rate is as close to "magic"
as it gets!

Now imagine how exciting your business gets when you
increase your conversion rate and you have a few THOUSAND
visitors a month.

Remember the profit formula?

Traffic + Conversions + Content + List + Monetize =
A Money-Making Home Based Business


With that information tucked into your belt..and your brain..watch this blo on monday morning. Enrollments begin at 10 AM Eastern time. (Put your information in the Feed box in the side bar right now to make sure you get notified when the post is published) Copywriting is the MAGIC formula for increasing your conversions. Learning how to write great copy is the easiest way to give yourself a raise.

Peace and Abundance,
Deborah Tutnauer

Friday Afternoon in August

There is a rhythm to the dog days of summer that can be felt by anyone in business. Things slow down. People appear less anxious to take action be it purchases or business decisions. Add to that the typical "Ahh, the week is over" feeling the permeated a Friday afternoon and you have a time period in sitting in front of you where not much is happening.

September is a huge month in business. Somehow the business community still feels like it is going "back to school". The temperature drops. It feels good to wear shoes again instead of flip flops. The renewed energy that has been ingrained into us all since our school days as children, rising to the forefront. September is traditionally the biggest month of the year in network marketing. The industry itself seems jump start in september and then rides that wave right up until the holidays that come four months later.

So right now, in the dog days of summer, good network marketers are preparing for September. This is not the time to take a step back and relax, even though it feels like it's hard to be productive. No, now is actually the time to get so prepared that when Labor Day is over, you can hit the ground running. Now is when you set up appointments for next month. Now is when you focus on developing your pipeline and when you lead people into your marketing funnel.

Becoming a light that shines out from the crowd is a matter of preparation and fortitude. While others are kicking back by the pool, you can be setting things up to make September 2009 your most productive month ever.

Useful "chores" list:
Update your website
Clean up your blog
Optimize your auto-responder emails
Revisit your vision, goals and objectives
De-clutter your office (including your email inbox)
Expand your mind
Watch training videos that you've been meaning to spend time on.
Read some new business books
Take part in a live event or webinar
Learn how to write good copy** (Good copywriting is the difference between websites that convert and those that don't...or emails that people open or those that end up in the trash.

While you are doing all of this..watch this free interview and learn a skill that will add to your September success..and the rest of 2009 as well.

Who is David Garfinkel and Why Do You Want to Know?

David Garfinkel writes a blog called
World Copywriting Blog

He is one of the most successful copywriters in the world! You want to know about him because copywriting is the one skill that will allow you to maximize your time and your advertising dollars. Copywriting is what massages prospects to join and customers to buy. Copywriting can mean the difference between 1% conversions and 10% conversions on your websites and squeeze pages.

David Garfinkel is THE copywriting master. And get this...in just two days he will be sharing some of his secrets in an interview with Ann Sieg. I am so excited to learn what he has to teach us. I didn't want you to miss out on this, so I'm leaking the information a bit early, just so you can be prepared.

Right now, go over the the left-hand side of this page and SUBSCRIBE to this blog. That is the only way you will be assured of receiving the information and the link to this free copywriting training with David Garfinkel. I'll be writing a post about it, the minute the video is live!!

How To Influence Reluctant Prospects To Sign Up

Would you like to learn how to inspire even
your most reluctant prospects to take action?

It might be persuading them to open an email,
visit your website, or read your blog post.

Convincing them to surrender their contact info
(and willingly become your lead) in exchange
for a free special report or newsletter.

Or more importantly, influencing them to work
underneath you in your downline and getting
them to purchase whatever you're selling.

The reason I ask is this.

Ann Sieg just interviewed this unorthodox
fellow by the name of David Garfinkel

And guess what?

They Chatted At Length
About This Very Subject!


In other words, writing that inspires people
to take the actions you want them to take.

If you want to start learning how to craft
enticing sales messages and offers that
no sane prospect could ever refuse...

Click here to listen to their conversation.

(David really over-delivers on this call
and serves up plenty of proven-to-work
copywriting advice - free of charge!)

I was totally impressed and I know you will too!

Plus, Ann gets him to reveal a little-known
(and severely underused) mindset trick
you can immediately start using...

That Will Help You "Connect" With
Potential Clients Like Never Before!

It's not something that's taught in any
school, business, or industry.

The highest paid writers working for the
biggest advertising agencies don't even
understand this stunning sales secret.

But you can discover it today by simply
listening to their in-depth interview.

Here's the link again.

Now you might be wondering...

"Who Exactly Is This
David Garfinkel Character?

Well, he's considered by many marketers to be,
"The World's Greatest Copywriting Teacher."

Because from what I hear he's dedicated the
last 15 years of his life to teaching it.

Thanks to him, many of his students have gone
on to become rich because their websites, sales
letters, emails, and ads, rake in small fortunes.

(At least 3 of them have written sales letters
that made over $1,000,000 dollars in 24 hours.)

Oh, and I should mention this too.

Word on the street is that Ann Sieg secretly
hired this guy for 35k to personally train
3 of her team members for six months.

(And to help launch Renegade Professional.)

The results?

Over $1,100,000.00 In
Sales Within Just 72 Hours!


Almost 40,000 fresh opt-ins (leads) generated
in a single month.

Exactly 4,454 new customers acquired in less
than 8 hours.

More than 186,517 unique website visitors in
under 30 days.

Apparently Ann was so thrilled with David's
training and how things went...

(Who wouldn't be, right?)

That now she's having him teach copywriting
to her entire team for six straight weeks!

But you'll never believe this.

She's actually going to allow a limited
number of people from the general public...

To Sit In On These Closed-Door
Company Training Sessions!


I'm almost positive nothing like this has
ever been done before and I'll have to admit
I'm a little curious to see how it turns out.


Click here to find out more information.

By the way, Ann and David talk about
"The Ultimate Copywriting Crash Course"...

(I think that's what they're calling it.)

Towards the very end of the call.

Everything before that is pure content.

Sound copywriting (and business) advice from
David (and Ann) that will help you politely
influence folks to do what you want them to.

To Your Success!!
