Hello George,

Now that you have your leads, this is where the concept of Attraction Marketing comes into play! You have to connect with them via phone/e-mail. One thing I might suggest is copying their e-mails and connecting with them on Facebook. It will let them see you and your business and that you are a real person. What you have to do with them once you connect, is to teach them how to market. Offer them some more free advice! Learn about them and their struggles, and help them. If you're unsure of how to help them, You can search for some advice in the forums and then share it with them. Doing that will not only teach them and make you look like the leader, but you'll also learn some new concepts in the process.

First off we have concluded by your "opt-ins" that your prospects are looking for help with mentoring or prospecting themselves due to the fact of they "opted in" to your MS website, quite possibly in a network marketing or affiliate business of their own. If you help them grow their business, they would surely want to help you by referring friends and family to be wed.

1. Call them, introduce yourself, ask what you could do to grow their business and offer your help in growing their business..... this is what Mike teaches, give value before expecting to receive anything. Obviously your affiliate link found a target market, you can offer your experience to them in marketing AS a successful wedding planner, no strings...a mentor-ship if you will.

2. I disagree with the posts that have remarked that this system is not set up for industries such as yours (wedding planning), as one poster put it, and I will paraphrase, "most everyone knows someone who is getting married" you can also offer your services to them as a "free wedding planner consultant" giving a free consultation for an hour for interested parties..put that out there...or write a blog on your experience on "Tips and Tricks for an Unforgettable Wedding" or "7 costly mistakes newlywed's make in organizing their nuptials" there are great (and free to low investment/high yield) courses I can recommend to accomplish this, email me for all the details.

Hope this gave you some good ideas. All the best! :mrgreen:

Successful business owners don't just communicate with prospects and customers for special sales. Today, making your business or product indispensable is a vital key to marketing success. It's a terrific way to add value, enhance your brand and position against your competition. Keep following up with your potential customer and keep building relationship.

1) Do a happy dance
2) Call your leads
3) Get these Leads into your list
4) Help your leads solve THEIR problems
5) Monetize over time
6) Re-invest your earnings back into advertising
7) Your system should then filter to allow exposure to what you use and your primary business.

Rinse and repeat on a GRAND SCALE. The breaking point most agree is 30+ Leads a DAY


lol @ 1) do a happy done..Love it! hehe

There are great comments here...hope all these ideas and comments comes out positive for you.

Just go through magnetic sponsoring and do recommend blackbelt recruiting too both from Mike Dillard, guessed you re not new to that. Take your leads as your associates and not just people you'll demand money from.
Be a valued person they have reference to and also a resourceful one too. Get on twitter and introduce them too if they havent. follow and be followed to build your relationship level. Solve their problems they mind have regarding wedding planning...just be an expert in your wedding planning nice business.

Hope this helps out and add to the lengthy comment here.

Well, from my understanding, MS can be used for more than one purpose.

The book itself is all about teaching you HOW to generate leads...having a way to capture the leads, using social media and videos, etc.

Using the MS or the BOAB capture pages as a "funded proposal" may or may not be a good "fit" for any and every type of business. I tend to lean more towards using it more so if you were promoting an internet marketing or MLM type of business/program.

But the CONCEPTS you've learned in reading the MS BOOK...apply those techniques to your wedding ebook.

Personally, I have my own natural hair-related ebooks that I've sold online since 2001. I was doing "some" of those things in MS long ago...but once I read MS, I began to apply some of the "newer" techniques and have been getting WONDERFUL results.

So, with your leads that you've gotten from using the MS capture page, as everyone has stated, build relationships with them by contacting them and just asking if they have questions and share with them what YOU'VE learned and gleaned from MS and how you've been using it for your business.

Hey...that's it right there!

"Hi, I was just wondering if you had a chance to read Magnetic Sponsoring and if you had any questions about how to apply the things you learn to whatever you're currently doing"


Then perhaps, as you are applying what you've learned to your wedding ebook business and getting results, document those results either in a blog, on YouTube, etc. and share it with your leads...

"Just wanted to share a bit with you on how MS has been REALLY helping me with my wedding ebook leads and sales!"


Re-teach what you're learning as you learn and apply and see results. Send them blog posts, send them videos or links to them.

Then IF anyone on your list of leads just so happens to at anytime need/want information on weddings, guess who's going to come to mind first?

Just my .02 for whatever it's worth!

Blessings and much success to you with your ebooks!

I agree with Andrew. You can use similar methods to produce leads for your own website and sell your ebook.

I built a site not involved with MLM and I built a list of over 500 opt-ins. It isn't that hard, but I think you will be sort of bait and switching people if you sell them on Magnetic Sponsoring etc and then call them to sell them an ebook about weddings.

You have the skills, you just need to refocus.

I have gotten people to ask me why I even contacted them. Just for introducing myself and pitching no product. :lol:

What would you say to those people?


Well mate, nothing much you can do. You see, people do not buy on logic but emotions, and because they may even with emotion subscribe to a lot of opt-in forms, it can be difficult to remember with who they opted in.

Which is why, it is best to have your own capture page, your email article, with your name on it. So every email, every info, every video has YOU in it, your face, your name, branding you. This is why the first thing I did is learnt..

1. To make my own capture page.

2. Brand me,

And when I did this, you as branding rises higher than the noise.

But even then, the people themselves are faced with noise. So I won't take it personal but as experience. You never know - something may come of this experiene to help share with us what you may have learnt to help with this in the future.

That's why it's important to aim at hungry, targeted audience who are hungry, serious, looking. And not jumping from one opt-in form to another for the "secret."

Introduce yourself, build a relationship. You can share ideas, it's not all about "buy my stuff" start marketing to them by sharing a unique story. Let them know you aren't here for a quick buck.

In your emails "tell your story" not others. Make it natural don't just copy and paste scripts.

My personal experience: Unique sells /copy and paste doesn't


PS. Just be yourself , it will all come together.

The message you deliver is the type of contact you will attract......at least at first.

When you make contact with them, learn to find what their interest was in buying one of the MS products. Help them with questions they may have and see where the conversation takes you.

I don't normally call any of my leads because my time is taken up with the ones contacting me. Last week I talked to a prospect for 15-20 minutes about him and what he was looking to do. He then said, "Aren't you going to tell me what MLM you are with?" I said sure if you want to know. I waited and he said "Well yes!"

It turns out that he is very interested in joining my team, even though he is already in a Network Marketing company for the past 3 years.

The reason this works so well is because I am there as a friend first. Asking questions and learning how I can best serve him. Many times I don't even talk about my MLM because I really don't need to. It's so much more fun this way.

I have been with the same MLM company for 27 years and it has and continues to pay me very well. But it is only part of my income and makes up only part of my company. If there is an opening for you to talk about your services, then take it. But also remember to monitise your marketing efforts as well.

You would be doing much better if you change your message to fit your niche market. That way your numbers will improve because the people you attract will already be interested in your services.

If you want to learn the path I took, which includes MS, visit my web site at http://www.Now8020.com and look for the "5 Step Success Plan". Don't worry, it's free and you don't need to leave your contact information if you don't want to be included on my free business tip line.

Hope that helps,
Bob Andolina
