# Writing Rita (TrafficWave)

What if you can’t decide and want to join more – or most of these businesses we just visited?

Watch out you don’t get to be like Busy BillieJo. Are you ready to work at this full-time? If you are single with no family making demands on you, you could do like Ruth and write up a detailed schedule for all your days, Monday through Friday. Spend all morning, all afternoon, and all evening until after midnight, and then you can probably run all these businesses too. Please note, that this has been her lifestyle though for a good number of years. If this would be a total lifestyle shift for you, go slow – give yourself time to learn and to adjust, or your brain will cramp and snap.

I don’t want to stand in your way. I just urge you to be sensible.

That all depends on how hard you are prepared to work and how well you are able to multi-task if you want to run all of them at once.

It really is not wise to give you exact numbers because you might walk away convinced that is a given. It is not!

To tell the truth, I would suggest you pick MLSP as your training in Attraction Marketing, and then pick one other business, MLM (like, Forever, or VoxxLife) or one of the others, such as INFINii, or SBI. Or, for that matter any other business venture you have discovered.

Actually, there is one more you need to sign up – no matter what you are promoting. You will be told over and over again that you need an Autoresponder & Mailing list. That’s where the true GOLD is!

You NEED a Mailing list – One of the Attraction Marketing techniques you learn at MLSP is to set up all your advertising efforts to lead prospects to your ‘funnel’ or ‘lead capture page’. This is where you get their email address in return for something you offer to them. It may be a free piece of information, as in a cheat sheet or a marketing ploy, or a short e-book with information they would really like. If that offer has real value, you might even ask a small price for it, like $5, or$10. Maybe as much as $20 or$30. (That money can then become your advertising budget).

Once they have received the info item, if you have embed in it, they will find an upsell message that offers them a more expensive offering, or affiliate product. By this time they may be so impressed with you that they will reach for it.

Even if they don’t bite for that, you now have their email address and it should have automatically been added to your mailing list at your autoresponder service. There you will have placed a series of automated and helpful emails that go out to each prospect in the schedule of days you set up for the next while.

However, the gold in that list is that you can also send out broadcast emails every few days. These are short, to-the-point emails that may offer more valuable tips and solutions, but every once in a while, you can make one of those an email that raves about some product or program that you want to share with them.

If your readers have been getting to know, like and trust you, a certain percentage will not be able resist clicking on the link you provide in the email to go check out what you are raving about. Not all, but some of those people will trust your recommendation and buy, or sign up.

Depending on the number of people on your mailing list, do the math in these potential scenarios:

1. The product you recommended costs $49.95; your commission is$24, your mailing list is just 1000 addresses. If 300 people click the link and go check it out, and half of those clickers buy, you make $24 x 150 =$3,600. (Of course, that may come in over the several days it takes those 150 people to make up their minds and buy).

2. Or… If you recommend a webinar that costs $199; (you are putting it on, so you clear$150 after expenses), your list is 10,000 addresses. If 30% (3000) click to investigate the webinar page, and if half of them sign up, that is 1500 x $150=$225,000. (Again, that comes in over several days or a week as they sign up and pay for the webinar).

Okay, that sounds like easy money, and it could come in to you in just a few days, BUT you need to be able to write good emails, and build up a rapport with your readers. You need to be able to draw in the subscribers, and maintain high numbers. If you can’t do that, all the above math is a fantasy!

Rather than spend too much time daydreaming these scenarios, you are wiser to get to work! Learn the necessary skills.

Instead of moaning that you can’t write, make up your mind to learn how, and then to write as a discipline every day. With time – (months/years) you will get better at it and it will grow easier. You cannot buy this skill. You gain it by DOING it many, many times!

Ah, but if you love to express yourself CLEARLY with written words, you will discover that writing these emails and setting up autoresponders is your most favourite part of running your online business. The proof will be in the pudding – that is, when you see your response rate!
