Robert Minarich on 90 Day Blitzes, Blogging, and Internet Lifestyle
Robert Minarich is a successful internet marketer and successful home-based business coach. Here’s our interview.
Hey Robert! It’s been over a year since I spotlighted you in my Top 80 MLM Bloggers post. I’m sure a lot has changed, so let’s get started!
How old is your blog, how many posts do you have, and are you still blogging today?
My blog is about 2 years old. There are about 25 posts from when I was blogging weekly on there and I am not currently blogging on that site.
I am actually in the process of revamping it and doing a rebrand and then plan to start blogging again.
How is the traffic to your blog and do you get leads consistently from your blog?
When I was actively blogging and driving traffic via social media I was generating consistent leads on my blog. However since I have been inactive for awhile, the traffic and leads have dropped off.
Are you promoting just MLM with your blog, or do you also promote an educational platform, such as My Lead System Pro, Elite Marketing Pro, or another Affiliate offer?
When I relaunch my blog, it will be primarily my own products and affiliate offers. However I will be promoting my network marketing company on the back end.
If someone is new to MLM and wants to do everything through blogging, what would you tell them?
I would recommend not doing everything through blogging.
Blogging is simply a tool for building your business and if you are consistent with it, you can do really well.
However, I wouldn’t rely on it 100% when starting your business. I certainly would not be the fastest path to success in network marketing.
Going out and taking a more traditional route while blogging simultaneously would be my recommendation.
You write about 90 day blitzes. Could you tell us how you go about a blitz and what can someone achieve by doing a blitz?
A 90 day blitz is a great strategy if you are planning to launch or re-launch your business.
Essentially its all out massive action for 90 days focusing on only profit producing activities such as prospecting, presenting and recruiting.
After a 90 day blitz, you will not only have made a significant income, but will have created a a wave of business that will continue to grow.
If you could start network marketing all over again, what would you do and why?
If I were to start network marketing all over again, I would start with a 90 day blitz and show more people faster.
When I got started it took me years to get serious and I did a whole lot of learning and not a whole lot of action taking… They say ignorance on fire is better than knowledge on ice and that really couldn’t be more true.
There were people that start around the same time frame as me that took way more action and hit the top ranks way faster. You really do get out of it what you put into it.
Can you tell us a little about the “Minarich Method?”
The “Minarich Method” is part of my brand and a series that I started where I write about my specific marketing methods. I plan to keep that as part of the new theme of the site.
You’re good friends with Ray Higdon. I assume you have done his 3 minute expert course or one like it. Could you tell us a little about what you learned from a master MLM blogger, such as Ray?
Yes, Ray is a great friend and mentor of mine! I have done Rays 3 Minute Expert course and many others. I am also a graduate of Ray and Jessica’s Top Earner Club Mastermind.
I have to credit Ray with a good share of what I know about network marketing and internet marketing. The biggest thing I learned was how important it is to brand yourself and establish a list.
And not only grow your list, but communicate with them and create a bond. Once you have a list that is passionate about what you share with them, not only can you change a lot of lives, but you can write your own paycheck.
What does your ideal life look like being a home-based Entrepreneur?
My ideal life is doing whatever I want, whenever I want. Being able to travel the world and see everything in it while still being able to generate plenty of income.
Being able to provide for my family and be there for all the important things.
Being able to give to the causes that I am passionate about and being able to make a difference, and most importantly being able to retire my wife from her job.
If someone wanted to start making money online fast, what would you tell them?
I would say plug into a system that is already setup and proven and get good at promoting it. There are a few that I recommend.
What are your goals for 2017?
My goal for 2017 is to continue to scale my consulting and coaching business and serve my clients at the highest level.
I also plan to create additional streams of passive income.
I plan to launch my new brand and blog and start creating a lot more content to put into the marketplace. I also plan to help many other people on their path to financial freedom and independence in their lives.
What’s your favorite business quote, and why?
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
This has been awesome, Robert! Thank you so much for taking time out to do this interview.
