A Look at Primerica From the Eyes of a Regular Person

March 2nd, 2012

In May of 2011 I was walking down the street on the way home from a doctor’s appointment when someone stopped me and asked me if I knew anyone who was interested in a position for part time or full time work. I then told him that I was interested, we then exchanged numbers, he called me and told me to come to a meeting so I showed up and when I realized that it was a Primerica function I automatically got discouraged because I was some what educated in the network marketing industry being in Amway years before (Who hasn’t served some time in Amway at one time or another). And I’ve heard a lot of negative things about Primerica so I automatically went in there with the “I’m not gonna listen to anything these people gotta say because THIS IS A SCAM.” type of attitude, I literally sat through that meeting with my arms folded and told myself “No matter what happens I WILL NOT GET EXCITED!”

As I sat through the meeting I was starting to realize that a lot of the financial concepts made sense to me, especially when they were talking about the importance of life insurance because I recalled the times some friends of mine who had unfortunately passed away and the financial devastation it took on their families. So after the meeting I had the opportunity to speak to the person who invited me so he could then explain to me on a one on one basis basically what they were about and how I could earn money with them. After the conversation I realized that this opportunity could be something that I could do in order to earn money so I immediately signed up.

Fast forward 6 months later I’m still involved in the company and it’s been a very educational experience. After being in Primerica for this time I have learned a lot of valuable of financial concepts such as buying term insurance and investing the difference so you will have money later in your retirement years. I have also learned the value of working in a team environment. The people in this environment are really positive and up beat and they are all looking to better themselves and their financial situation.

Every day I see someone new who inspires me to do better with myself and my business. For instance one of my colleagues who started at the same time that I did was able to earn close to three thousand dollars in two weeks! The best part about that was HE WAS ONLY 18 YEARS OLD!! Even though I was previously in Amway a couple of years before I didn’t earn any money being in that company but thanks to me being involved in the Primerica opportunity I was able to earn commission checks which solidified my belief not only in the company but in the network marketing industry in general.

Now that I’ve said these things let me get to the most important part of the article, which basically is “Is Primerica a scam? Can you earn money with the company? And will it work for me?” If you are asking yourself these questions let me tell you honestly that one, Primerica is not a scam it’s been around for a long time and the reason people don’t earn any money with this company or any company for that matter is that the network marketing industry has this giant misconception that as soon as you sign up with a company that YOU’LL BE ABLE TO MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS BY TOMORROW!! Obviously this is not true and when people realize this they are automatically put off on the business and the industry in general thinking that it’s a scam or a pyramid scheme because they wasn’t able to earn the money as fast as they thought they could. » Read more: A Look at Primerica From the Eyes of a Regular Person

MLM Lead Generation: Why Time Is On Your Side

March 2nd, 2012

A few days ago, my husband and I were talking to our eldest daughter about the wisdom of starting her MLM lead generation business right now, even though she won’t be eligible to officially participate until next year, when she turns 18.

Why are we suggesting she do this?

Because if done correctly, can you imagine what she will have achieved by this time next year if she gives herself 12 months to build an MLM lead generation online presence?

Think about it.

Effective MLM lead generation is all about three things:

1) Positioning yourself as a trusted source of online training and a leader in the industry;

2) Making your site a place where those interested in network marketing can come to learn everything they know about the industry and how to start – and maintain – a thriving home based business; and

2) Driving traffic to your site and offering a funded proposal in the (likely) event that, should a visitor not be interested in joining your downline, you still have a chance to earn some money.

There are at least a dozen different ways to accomplish this, but in the long run, article marketing just seems to make the most sense.

That’s because, when you write and post a well-targeted, SEO friendly, and valuable piece of content, it stays online (where potential clients can find it) forever, or until you decide to take it down.

(And if you really know what you’re doing, that content can live at the top of Google where the greatest number of network marketing searches will see it.)

Compare that to PPC, Craigslist and banner ads, etc., that only last as long as you’re willing to pay for them, and you begin to see why article marketing is a go-to resource for many top producers when they’re looking for MLM lead generation.

Effective article marketing is a subject in and of itself (and one I’ve covered extensively), so it’s worth your while to take the time to research how you can use this heavy-hitter approach to build a solid online business.

And that brings us full circle to the conversation we had the other night with our daughter.

I don’t know if she’ll take us up on our offer to help her get started now or not (London’s calling, and art school), but she’s thinking about it.

If she does decide to start her MLM lead generation efforts now, she’ll be in a good place in a year.

By that time, her site will have established history with Google (which takes, on average, about three solid months of daily content uploading).

She’ll have had a chance to establish herself, and her voice, within the community, maybe as a leader among young people looking for ways to put themselves through college, or transition into the career world.

And she’ll have learned the ins and outs of MLM lead generation, all free from the pressure of having to make money to survive.

A lot of network marketers who are new to the industry might not feel like they have that kind of time/luxury, but if you can swing it, if you can afford to take the time to build your business with care, your efforts are sure to pay off. » Read more: MLM Lead Generation: Why Time Is On Your Side
