TrafficWave - OceanSwell TEAM Update (#65)

Team building for TrafficWave is my passion.  That's because, in 'My Internet Marketing Journey', I have learned the true value of an autoresponder and how precious of an asset your opt-in email contact list really is.  I didn't know it before, but I know it now.  But more than that, I've come to realize the power of collective-recruiting and what Napoleon Hill always referred to as 'your mastermind group'.  That's because (in my opinion) you cannot succeed in an MLM-style affiliate sales program without being part of an organized team.  That doesn't guarantee quick success, but it does guarantee a legitimate chance at it.  You have to put yourself in a position to win before you'll ever have a shot at victory.

You see, when you are running a business you can count your assets.  Your building, your inventory, your established customer base, your name recognition & good will, your un-collected receipts, and so on, are all assets.  Online, it's similar in some ways, though quite different in others.  For example, your email subscriber list is a major asset.  If you are a part of Team OceanSwell, then having the entire Team working for you is definitely an asset as well.  In any business, your assets are a measure of your success, your worth and your potential.  Unfortunately, most people who fancy themselves to be Internet Marketers simply don't think about these assets... or even care about them.  They don't don't want to 'build a list'.  It's too much work and too much trouble.  They don't want to join Team OceanSwell or stick around long enough for it to help them.  It just 'takes too long'.  I work in a hospital and I see it there too.  People come in with chronic illnesses and expect a quick fix via a 'pill' or something.  That, and they expect fast miracles from the medical staff (and sometimes get very angry when it doesn't happen).  It just isn't reality - i.e. that thing that nobody wants to accept. 

I believe in having a personal philosophy and mine has evolved from reading biographies.  I like quotes too, and General George Patton has some that I like.  One of them (speaking about himself) was, "I am the master of the possible."  So what does that mean?  It means that if it can get done, he'll make it happen.  But if it isn't possible, then don't bitch about it.

That's what each of needs to become; 'a master of the possible'.  Did you know that this blog receives about 30-50 unique visitors from around the world on a daily basis because of it's content and page-depth?  It's true, but it didn't happen overnight.  Do you also notice that the links to TrafficWave (and Global NPN) are the rotating Team URL's and not mine (though I am in the Rotator too)?  Do you think that's a valuable aspect of being part of my Team?  These blog posts don't write themselves.  I do it for you - ME.  By the way, do you think it's possible that you could create a blog of your own like this one?  Of course it is.  As a demonstration, my buddy (Jeff) & I have created a generic Internet Marketing blog that you can see here:

Home Business Ideas for the 21st Century

Take a look at this thing.  Right up at the top, there is a banner that links to our Team URL for Global NPN.  In fact, there are links to Global NPN and TrafficWave throughout, and all of them (without exception) link to the Team URL's, rather than Jeff's or mine alone.  That means that, so long as you are part of the Team, that blog is working for you 24/7, 365 days a year.  That blog is going to grow, and grow and grow.  In 2011, even more are coming!  That's what I'm talking about by 'mastering the art of the possible'.  We also threw Amazon & click-bank stuff in there too to show everyone how to set up a blogger.com site like this and what you can do with it.  This is something that everyone who is reading this can do.  Did you know that blogger.com will give you stats on how many visitors your site is receiving and from where?  It will even give you the keyword searches used to find your site!  That's another asset.

Last, but not least, I want to recognize a loyal Team Member and good promoter, Mr. Bud Hall.  This month, he receives the $40.00 cash bonus to help with his marketing efforts - yet one more benefit of being a member of the now-famous Team OceanSwell.  If you're reading this and still haven't joined us yet, what in the world are you waiting for?

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.  Take a break from Internet Marketing, enjoy the feast and the time off.  We are going to have a very good 2011...
