Is December Really That Bad (For Network Marketing)?

(This timely article was originally posted at DeborahTutnauer.com)

I’m sure you’ve been told that December is worst month of the year for network marketing. Is it an old wives tale meant to make everyone feel better about taking the month off and pushing hard with your business, or is it true?

The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is traditionally a time in our US culture with a focus on the holidays and on retail sales and marketing. No one could possibly make you believe that business is not happening. You just have to open a newspaper flyer or enter into any retail store to see that business is in full swing. In fact, this time period may well be the best time of year for many types of businesses.

So why not network marketing? Part of the reason is related to solely to human nature. A network marketing business requires that individuals need to focus and take action. During the holiday period, many home business people experience a change in mind-set, choosing to relax and focus on family and festivities instead of on business. This is certainly their choice and in fact is one of the benefits of being self-employed. But when hundreds of thousands of people make this same choice at the same time, it effects the entire industry.

Another reason for the perpetuation of the idea that the network marketing industry struggles in December, is that people are hesitant to focus on recruiting members and prospects feel no pressure to start a new endeavor when the new year is looming just over the horizon. Unfortunately, this is short sighted on both parties parts. Given that January is a huge month for new business, setting everything up in December assures that January begins with a bang instead of a whimper.

Thirdly, many network marketing products are not focused on retail sales, and this is clearly a retailing/gift giving period of time. Those companies that have a product line that is geared to customers and retail purchases can take huge advantage of this holiday season by helping the people in the field see the opportunity and go for it.

As a network marketing professional, you do not have to succumb to the dreaded December doldrums. You can choose instead to stand outside the crowd and make this a great business month. Wherever possible, make use of your product line as gifts and make sure your team does the same. There is no reason to not shop in your own store, so to speak. As for business, there are people already open minded and preparing for the new year. Be the person who connects with them. While others sit back and relax, you have the opportunity to make an impact and a difference. This is just one more way that you can take effective action and grow your downline easily.

December is only really that bad for your network marketing business if you believe it to be. Just like so much in this industry, your mind-set and focus will determine the outcome. You truly have a choice to make. I know what I choose.

Social Media Outsourcing Solution

This is truly Cool!!! If you are using Social Media correctly for your online marketing, then you are most likely spending hours per day bookmarking your own and other people's content on a multitude of social media sites. (Unless you've hired someone to do it for you..smart!)

So if you could essentially hire that magic person who's only job was to make you a bookmarking, commenting, Digging and Mixxing superhero, you'd be the top dog when it came to your Google Ranking, Search Engine placement and traffic! The magic person it here!!

That's what I've been wanting to tell you now for weeks, but I needed to make sure that my personal results were what I had hoped. Well not only are they...they are more than I could have imagined. So start dreaming my friends. Your dream is about to come true!

First page of Google for my keywords with every single campaign I have put into place. These are not keywords for wimps. In fact in one campaign I hold two page one Google positions out of 550, 000,000 other listings. And it took less than two weeks..sometimes less than 3 days.

Wait! It gets even better. You can set up and try the platform yourself, with your content and your keywords for 7 days for just a buck. That's right. $1 for 1 week. If your content is good and your keywords are well defined and you have a page that converts, you could easily make many, many times that amount in that week.

So try the Social Media Outsourcing Solution right now.

RV Income : Making Money From Anywhere

The idea of RV income is about learning how to make money from anywhere. Think about the power in that statement...Making money from anywhere. So many people would love to have the skills to do that. You would not be tied to a specific location or home. You could follow the seasons if you'd like and still have a check coming in, waiting for you at the next post office.

How can this be done? In fact it's being done in a multitude of ways, from internet marketing, to affiliate marketing to online niche marketing..just to name a few. People living in their RV's these days are a very diverse group as well. Of course there are those who are retired and travel year round from one location to the next. But it goes way beyond that. Families with children will often live in their RV's and travel while schooling their kids. It would be wonderful for them to be able to create an RV income. People who are just plain tired of the rat race are investigating RV living as an alternative lifestyle. They too would benefit from developing and ongoing RV income from anywhere.

But being a full time RVer has expenses associated with it, and clearly you cannot hold a regular 9-5 job if you are traveling in your RV. According to a number of RV lifestyle websites, the average yearly cost of RV living is about $25, 000 per year. I'd tend to round up and plan on $30,000. So the question becomes, how can you create an income of $2500 per month, from anywhere. And of course, the answer is: On the internet! RV income is not just a pipe dream, it is entirely possible, probable and feasable with some information, education and fortitude!
