Speed Up Shipping with Barcodes

Did you know you could add a barcode to your ShipWorks template? That’s right, ShipWorks can take any order information you print on invoices or package slips and turn it into Barcode Format!

For example, you can convert a ShipWorks order number into a barcode and when you scan it, the order number will be displayed in the Quick Search field. Then, ShipWorks will display the specific order for you.

FedEx and UPS Announced New Surcharges

Do you use UPS or FedEx to ship large packages? If so, we have important news to share with you.

Both UPS and FedEx have changed the minimum measurements for large-shipment surcharges. This means that you will have to pay an additional charge for packages with a long side of 48 inches or more, instead of 60 inches. For example, this package measurement determines whether the UPS Additional Handling charge of $10.50 will be applied to UPS Ground services packages in the U.S.

Submit for Review of MLM Software Quote

"Losers visualize the penalties of failure.  Winners visualize the rewards of success." -Unknown
People who get quotes for MLM Software fall into two categories.  Those affraid of failing see cost as their hurdle, then trip into low-end systems which cripple the company.  Likewise, those who can not manage money have been known at throwing too much money at a project, wastfully driving it to it's knees.

Winners seem to see the reward.  Even if a budget is tight, they see the need for doing things correct, as well as taking a good look at the numbers, to prevent overpayment.  Winners sense the future, while being wise to the present.  Loosers are blind to the future and fail to be wise in their decisions.

Who wants to be a Looser?  Who wants to be a Winner?
Of course, you want to be a winner.  But you are entering a business, with little or no experience in the details of launching and running a legit MLM or Direct Selling company.

Submit for Review of your MLM Software Compensation Plan

"We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit." -Aristotle  The greatest reason for starting an MLM or Direct Selling Company is to sell MORE of your particular product or service, by leveraging an unlimited and growing base of sales representatives. 

You first need a written down Compensation Plan, as it can greatly effect the cost of your MLM Software System.  To write it down means, you need to make a lot of decisions about the compensation plan, bonuses, flow of funds and types of bonuses used.

Often times, we see people grab 2-3 compensation plan and bonus ideas from 5 or 6 different companies, combining them with the hopes of being unique and attractive.  "The best of existing company compensation plans have been pulled together to present ours."  In truth, while each of the bonuses and compensation points individually may have appeal and seem simple for programming, the purpose and culture of the members can be effected, commissions can overpay and the particular arrangement of bonuses from multiple company compensation plans often renders a complex and expensive programming requirement.  Face it, you're trying to get to a place in 30 days, where another company has built over 10 years to get... including the evolution of their compensation plan.

Have you stopped to think that the compensation plan and bonuses used by that company when it started, drove the early sales, but evolved to what you see today?  In other words, the compensation model and bonuses in place 10 years later are finely honed to sustain and control growth, not put 500,000 people in a company over 90 days.

MLM Compensation Plan Sets The Atmosphere

Some call it culture, some call it atmosphere.... it is the great purpose that embodies the great majority of your sales representatives.  Is it to recruit endlessly to get rich or to seek and close consumers of your company's products and/or services, keeping a watchful eye for consumers which may make an excellent sales representative? 
The MLM Software Compensation Plan will cause your sales reps to gravitate towards areas which they believe will provide the highest payout on their efforts.  If you lean heavy on Fast Start or Recruitment Bonuses, you will end up with a fast-growing, but short lived recruiting business.  If you lean heavy on Retail Sales, you will end up with a slow-growing, but long-life product sales driven company.  Ultimately, more Retail Sales will be generated for the company, if more sales reps exist, hence a balance is sought, in order to develop the best culture/atmosphere for your MLM or Direct Selling Company.

Foundational Types of MLM Compensation Plans

Straight Line - Imagine One Straight Thread Down, with every person directly under ONE person above.  These lend heavy towards recruiting schemes, and position seems to be the buzz-word to attract new reps.  That and earning through infinity, which seldom can occur without bancruptcy.

Binary - Limited Width (2 Wide), Unlimited Depth.  Often, the Binary simply counts the total group sales volume on the left, compares with the total group sales volume on the right, then provides a particular bonus based on such.  Due to limited width, the term Spill is often marketed, however this plan can often lead to the masses pitching a get-in-now recruiting scheme, missing the company's true value of products and services, and leading thousands to join and sit still to wait on spill.

Matrix - Limited Width, Limited Depth.  We can equally say, limited earning potential.  Of course, whiteboards quickly show how enormous amounts of money can be earned within a matrix, but this direction often leads to the same verbiage of spill, get-in-now and false expectations.

UniLevel - Unlimited Width, Limited Depth.  Pretty well proven to support the best long-term residual income, when compared to other programs.  That said, a UniLevel can also lead people astray.

Reverse Generation - Unlimited Width, without regard for depth.  It is actually limited in the number of ranks one may advance to, verses depth.  More common with financial or insurance products and often containing additional bonuses.

Coop's - Unlimited regard to Width or Depth.  Coop's are built on the division of company-wide sales revenue.  You may view this as corporate pool(s), of which members earn shares to determine their division thereof.

Bonuses to use with Compensation Plans

There are many types of bonuses, each of which may be used to engineer the purpose, culture, atmosphere of your sales team.  CAB (Customer Acquisition Bonus) is designed to benefit a sales rep for landing new Customers, while FSB (Fast Start Bonus) is often used to benefit a Sponsor when a New Sales Rep chooses to purchase an Optional Product Package when they join.
With only these two examples, you can imagine how the mentality of your sales team is engineered.  This is important.  It determines the drive to sell a company's products or to recruit.

We can discuss hundreds of different Bonuses, but let's start with YOUR Compensation Plan.
Remember, it effects the sales team, but it also effects the cost of your MLM Software System.
And, dare we not mention, there can be huge legal implications.
Now, we are not attorneys, nor do we propose to replace an attorney.
Anyone starting a business should get a CPA and Attorney on board.
We do work with many of the industry attorneys and believe our guidance will save you a tremendous amount of money in software costs and legal expenses, verses handing them a botched up compensation plan concept.

MLM Marketing Part 3: SEO Marketing

The real title should be MLM Marketing and SEO Dangers.

In the last 8 months, we've seen a growing swell of companies seeking every venue they can to increase their sales and penetration into the MLM Industry.  Many companies will place tools at the finger tips of distributors, while others hire SEO Marketers.  Both meet a similar fate.

Today, we are releasing part 3 of our 4 part series on several marketing methods, their pros and cons... (at this point in time).  One of the most important things to understand in marketing your MLM Business is that successful marketing practices are continuing to change.

The series, as first planned, will cover 4 primary areas.

SEO Marketing

This is a HOT and every-changing topic!  For over 15 years, I've told folks that finding your website on the internet is similar to finding a needle in a haystack, only worse.  The haystack is the size of the Moon and there are billions of needles in the haystack.

The solution, by many, has been to build bulks of external linking pages, basically pointing thousands of needles to your needle.  That's absolutely correct, providing they are honest websites, with their own traffic, related to your website or niche and not involved with spam activities.  SEO marketers went crazy by setting up 10,000 back links, link wheels, fake social profiles, anything that would get a back link to a website.

For some time, they were successful.  That day has come to an end.  Google, the dominant engine, has taken an interest in locating and thwarting these types of back-linking.  You can actually be penalized and lose ranking, if involved.

Plain and simple.  Your MLM Website must be Contextually Relevant to a Search Term entered by a user.
That's it.  Multiply that by back linking that is also contextually relevant to their search and to your website.

I've been in heated conversations with SEO Marketers, that continue to promote the same ugly tactics.

Keep it clean, keep it real in 2014!

MLM Marketing Part 2: Admin and Distributor Tools

The real title should be MLM Marketing and SEO Dangers.

In the last 8 months, we've seen a growing swell of companies seeking every venue they can to increase their sales and penetration into the MLM Industry.  Many companies will place tools at the finger tips of distributors, while others hire SEO Marketers.  Both meet a similar fate.

Today, we are releasing part 2 of our 4 part series on several marketing methods, their pros and cons... (at this point in time).  One of the most important things to understand in marketing your MLM Business is that successful marketing practices are continuing to change.

The series, as first planned, will cover 4 primary areas.
  • Website Design (View Part 1)
  • Admin and Distributor Tools
  • SEO Marketing
  • Clear Marketing and Advertising

Admin and Distributor Tools

With a continual swell of SEO and Marketing Tools, geared towards fooling the search engines, to get you closer to the top... companies fall prey to ideas and methods which should not be used, often avoiding great ideas and methods.  Firstly, a solid Direct Selling and MLM Software Platform, designed to provide the best visibility of any MLM Software program... http://mlmsoftwarecentral.com/

Distributor Blogging

Hungry distributors will say anything.  Keep that in mind.  They will guarantee income to those joining their downline or a cure for cancer from a particular bottle of pills.  My father used to say "Desperate People do Desperate Things".  Let's face it... if your company is not focused on selling real products to real consumers first, then you have probably fallen in the direction of marketing your products to Distributors, creating an endless chain of recruiting.  It only takes a few web searches for you to see the folly in this method.  You've planted a big red flag on your corp, attracting the regulators.  Additionally, you set the atmosphere of your sales force.  This atmosphere often means lot's of registrations with little to no actual earnings.  Thus... "Desperate People!"  This leads to improper claims of earnings and products on public forums, blogs, posts, emails and more.

A few companies are in the market to specifically provide blog tools to distributors.  Avoid and live, embrace and die!

Solid companies no the risk and the cost of legal battles.  These companies define in their Policies and Procedures that the company's name, products and opportunity may not be posted on any third party site by any distributor.  That sounds excessive to new companies, seeking distributors to spread the word.  As a kid, there was a game parents would play with children at Church.  Line up 20 kids and whisper a message into the ear of the first kid.  Let each kid whisper to the next.  The last kid would then right down the message.  We would all laugh, as the message was completely different from the original.  In the MLM Industry, as close as 3 generations from your lips... your corp message is so distorted that it should not be shared AT ALL!  Often 1 generation from your lips can create legal troubles.  Why is that?  Atmosphere of the crowd sways thoughts and intentions, personal situation and desperation, as well as mistake of understanding your message.

Conclusion: Distributor Blogging is a huge risk.  Only companies prepared to deliver pre-defined corporate messages, for Distributors to post un-altered should participate.  Additionally, multiple Distributors should have varied content and not duplicates of one another.  Thus, you will need a department that specializes in generating corp approved content.  Few have the resources to develop and approve content on this scale.

Admin Blogging

Admin Blogging can be a huge asset.  The important difference, is that you are stating the content yourself.  Hopefully, you sought legal review on the content before posting.

Proper replicated subdomain sites in your MLM Software will allow the blog to be duplicated onto all distributor sudomains.  Some will argue there to be negative marks in Google for the duplication, however we find this not to be the case, especially if sufficient differences exist of other content within the replicated page of Distributor.

AutoBlogging is a method of automatically gathering data and drafting blogs through software.  We have an incredible tool built in our platform, however you should use caution as it can be misused.  If misused, it will bring negative marks against search engine performance.  The best use of AutoBlogging is the automated creation, followed by your manual edit and rewrite into your own words.  Used this way, it could be seen as a memory jogger or blog content starter.  Either way, the true nature of your edits will take a couple paragraphs of an AutoBlog and quickly expand them into 5-6 paragraphs of unique web content.  This is the richest form of on-page content you can achieve!

Distributor Emails

In days gone by, many MLM Software and Direct Selling Software programs offered a back office feature for Distributor Emailing.  The featured allowed Distributors to upload or enter a list of contacts, draft an email and fire it out... Ok, what just happened?

  1. A list, unknown by corp, with unknown subscription confirmation was loaded into the back office by Distributor
  2. A message was drafted by Distributor
  3. Email was Sent to All
  4. Email was Sent form Corp Domain and IP

Do we really need to go into detail here?  Everything about this spells trouble.  SPAM is the unsolicited sending of email.  You have just provided a feature for Distributors to SPAM anyone they want, with any Message they Type Up, promising Anything, and sent from your Domain and IP.  OUCH!  Do you think the corp might be liable for the SPAM?  Do you think the corp might be liable for the Message of Email?  Do you think the Domain or IP could be added to SPAM Black Lists, preventing regular email from landing in peoples inboxes in the future?
Just a guess... I would say all the above!

Now I am not a lawyer, but come on folks... use your head!

  • Not everything you have seen before should be used.
  • Not everything made available in another MLM Software should have ever been there for use.
  • Not everything a Distributor claims another Corp had in Distributor Back Offices should be in yours.

Also, technology changes, tools change, as well as laws and best practices.  Consult with your attorney on features such as these.

If your attorney signs off on them... question his knowledge of technology and the subject you presented.  Not every attorney understands every feature and the implications as first shared by you.

Admin Emails

Very simple.  After reading the above, on Distributors... it should be clear that risks exist with emailing.  In fact, uploading an email list, bulk sending, the message content and IP implications should all be considered.

Use of external email relays, often allow for protected handling of large volumes of email, however there must be permission involved or will be spam.  For years, DNSExit.com has provided a reasonable service for relaying bulk email.  Using an IP rotation, they generally provide pretty good delivery.  Unfortunately, the receiving domains have increased their rules and checks for flagging as spam.  In short, delivery to Inbox is the final desire and we are now seeing SendGrid as the most desirable service to date.

SEO Marketing

SEO Marketing is a double edged sword.  Marketers promise the world, deliver little and that which is delivered is often penalized by Google.  There is "SOME" truth to SEO Marketing, however far from the promotions you are pitched.  It comes down to Content on your page, contextually relevant to what someone is searching for.  Enough pages of relevance, coupled with referring domains of relevance will aid in your results.  It is best to contract Marketing and Advertising Services verses SEO Marketing, as SEO Marketing will often lead to penalization, even if they promise it won't.

Distributors are often in need of success.  That said, they often act as if in desperation.  That said, they will often push SEO Tactics towards your site or their replicated one, leading to penalization.

Clear Marketing and Advertising

Take time to develop a true Marketing and Advertising Plan.  If you need help, see Inspetta.com or MLMSoftwareCentral.com for assistance.  We develop ads for TV, Radio, Web, Adwords and AdCenter, Print and much more.  We also lead a true focus on the contextual relevance of every area of your site.
