Why am I awesome? If you have worked with me, then you already know.

Hello Folks… Big Paulie back again to teach and train you exactly how to get paid quickly with Valentus.
This will be a very short, yet very powerful training. So pay close attention and take action immediately on what I give to you now.
Let’s get started.
First, you must join valentus at the Ruby package level. If not, bringing in just 1 person costs you roughly forty to eighty percent of commission payout. For example, Ruby pack holders who sponsor just one Ruby, can make up to $200. Let’s say you only get $100 from that sale. If you are not a Ruby (only paid the twenty bucks to activate your website and you bought just 1 box of product) and you sponsor just 1 Ruby level representative, you get pain a whopping $20.
Let’s see. $20 versus $100 for the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF WORK……
If you don’t understand that the $100 is 5 times better, then you do NOT belong in this business.
For more information on why you need to go Ruby, watch this video:
Next, Autoship. Get your Autoship locked in… No excuses. Why? Because you cannot quickly accumulate volume points if you are not on the products. In addition, Rubies who are on Autoship for six consecutive months get automatically promoted to Emerald. How is that for fair! This is the absolute best compensation plan me and my team has ever seen. Period. Watch this for more information about starting your Autoship:
It is important to have leadership that are moving fast and can provide you with powerful Valentus Training. My team is one of the fastest growing teams in all of Valentus and the team stretches across 4 countries. Plus, in addition to my Valentus Training, you get awesome bonuses that literally put money in to your pocket.
So what do I do now? You take action.
You take action. Use this Valentus Training to get your account, order product and contact just 5 people who will work with you and want you to make $15,000 per month. If you need help with any of this, including setting up where your paycheck goes, reach out to me. I help all 2,000+ of my team members. And I will help you.

I see way too many of you out there doing the wrong things when promoting your network marketing business.
I see you hitting people over the head with your new product, or your awesome new compensation plan and you’re even telling people (especially me) that some guru is now joining your business. Let me help you.
Please allow me to give you knowledge that will make you money.
NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT, SERVICE, COMP PLAN OR WHO JUST SIGNED UP IN IT!
OK, now let me tell you what you should do in to order sign more people up, sell more product and make more money.
Have you been to a department store or car dealership and the salesperson wasted your time with telling you about some new feature or a new product that you might like? Sure, you might like it, but you also might not. Remember that thought that ran through your mind during that incident? “Dude, shut up! Just give me what I asked for.”
That salesperson did not do what every successful salesman and woman have done since the dawn of the modern era. It is a technique that every single last successful businessman and woman have employed to make their millions – and billions.
Want me to tell you what it is?
You already know it.
Let’s go back to our little incident above…
“Dude, shut up! Just give me what I asked for.” Let’s look at that.
In that moment during their conversation with you, did the sales associate try to give you what you wanted? Or did they try and shove “something awesome” down your throat that they felt you might like?
Here is the secret sauce that separates the ‘successful’ from the ‘shitty’ in direct sales, network marketing or any business. Get ready. Because here is comes…
The successful individual merely finds what the customer wants and gives it to them.
Freaking amazing, I know…
Now let’s look a scenario where you just bought everything the salesperson told you to buy. What did they say or do to make you pull out your credit card and buy? It probably went something like this:
“Hi, how are you today?”
“What can I help you with?”
“That’s sounds good. Why do you want that?”
“OK, where else have you gone to acquire that?”
“Cool. Let me help you get that. Are you ready to buy it today?”
Review these statements carefully and learn how to stop trying to sell people into your “deal”. Notice the entire conversation was about what the customer/client wants! Learn to change your methods from “I’m going to tell you how awesome my powerline-matrix-thingy is.” to “How can I help you get what you want using my program?”
The commission only comes after the signup. And the signup only comes after the decision has been made to join. And people make decisions based on getting what they want.
“So, what do you want?
More money? Time freedom? More leads? More sales?
I can help you get it.
Let me help you get what you want.” -Big Paulie
I think MLM (MultiLevel Marketing) programs are a bunch of scams. Because nobody makes any real money in it… Except for maybe the company owners who should all go straight to prison, then to hell!
Network Marketing, MLM, “Home Business Opportunities” – they all SUCK!
No, my friend. Your information is false. MLM won’t work for you, not because it sucks. MLM does not suck…
A commonly asked question when a new independent distributor has been working for a few months in network marketing and direct sales is “Why won’t this business work for me?!” This thought usually creeps into the mind of the representative after he/she has signed a few people up and sees little to no activity in his or her organization and received little to no money either.
An extremely high percentage of new distributors do little to nothing. This is true regardless of the company, the compensation plan, or the sponsor. This is a fact. People suck at this.
I have studied thousands of people in different companies and organizations and there is a recurring theme to success (and failure) in this industry. Yes, Network Marketing, Direct Sales or MLM is a multi-BILLION dollar industry that has been around for over 60 years in the USA alone. I am quite sure that the US Government would not let such a large and robust “scam” run for 3 generations and expand worldwide without massive arrests, fines and public shaming. Yeah, it’s not a scam, Einstein.
So, why do the statistics say over 90% fail, do nothing or lose money in MLM, Network Marketing or Direct Sales if there are Billions being generated monthly??? How is this possible? Well, like anything and everything, there are those that do (about 5% of the population) and there are those that do some (about 15%) and there are those that do nothing (80%). These are the 3 core Performance Groups of Humanity. (This is trademarked. DO NOT USE WITHOUT MY EXPRESSED WRITTEN PERMISSION!)
Which Performance Group are YOU in??? I can tell you that those in the top 5% do not care about the thoughts, opinions and habits of the other 95%. And they try to focus on training, uplifting and building the businesses of those who show enough promise out of the 15% group.
QUESTION: “Paulie, there has to be some secret to how one can actually make a living out of this industry, right?”
Yes. But, I would even go so far as to say this is THE key to successful growth in a business like ours. It’s simple….
ANSWER: Consistently sponsor new team members and teach the fundamentals over and over again until one, two, or three people go to work. This is the only formula that works.
Read that again. And unlock the secret of the many “Diamond” and “Senior Vice President” and “Grand Poobah” distributors who have come before you, just to walk across stage at your events.
Read it again.
Now, it is 2015. (Well, almost.) So, we are a little bit more sophisticated. We (us gurus and diamonds, not you) utilize systems to automate and expand our reach to a much larger audience. This makes our lives a bit easier. But the secret sauce is still the same. Communicate the fundamentals to as many people as it takes over and over again until a few go to work. The secret has been in your face all along. You may have heard called “duplication”.
“So, how do I stop sucking and be a Diamond Guru like you, Paulie?”
This takes commitment and focus which, I’m sorry to say, most people just don’t have. But, the great thing is, to make a six figure income in this business, you really only need a few that take it seriously.
Here is a “To Do” list for you to follow. When you successfully complete each of these tasks, you will no longer suck. You will make decent money. And you will walk across stage.
- Show the business to 3-10 people a week.
- Sign up 1-4 people per month for 2-4 years.
- End of List.
So simple, yet so easy to mess up. It comes down to consistency in execution, no matter how you feel at any given time. The lack of discipline and tenacity in your business creates the “sucky” aura around your body. This aura causes slow movement, increased television watching, increased complaining, a decrease in your commissions and an increase in the tendency to ask stupid questions like, “Is this a scam?” or “Paulie, will you pay my way to be on your team?”
Hey, is one presentation per day too much to ask someone to do to grow a significant income that has the potential to set them free financially in less than 5 years? NO! Of course not!
So why do so many in this industry suck? Why is the “total suck percentage” between 80% and 90% of everyone in this industry?
Another easy question to answer for Big Paulie. At any point in time, about 80 – 90% of distributors choose NOT to complete the “To Do” list I gave you up above. The problem is you are not talking to enough NEW people. Or, you may be trying to manage your team, which just doesn’t work. This is a volunteer army. You cannot have meetings, conferences or webinar trainings and tell people what to do. People have to be led. And you lead them by doing exactly what you want them to do. SPONSOR NEW PEOPLE.
Nine times out of ten, you have not sponsored enough people to find the right people. (Remember, you want two or three from the 15% (or 5%) Performance Group who get to work.)
How do you know if you have the right people? How do you know what Performance Group they are in?
*They are doing something. Or they do a lot.
They are showing up without you having to remind them. And they are calling you with questions every week. And most important trait out of them all – they are talking to new people about their business. Remember that “duplication” thing?
Look, if you really want to stop sucking so hard, here is what you do. Stop complaining. Just do what I tell you. (Or what your upline 5%-er tells you.)
Next, take a look at your team. If it is just you, then take a look at yourself. If your team (you included) are not doing the “To Do” List above, it’s not your fault! It is not anybody’s fault. About 95% of people suck at one time or another. Do not dwell on your “suckiness”. When you stink, you take a shower or bath, right? Or do you dwell, analyze and complain about how much you reek? No, you simply resolve the issue.
Just get back to work. The “To Do” list did not change, so why should you? Set more appointments, expose your business to new people, sign new customers and sponsor new independent distributors, then teach what I taught you – over and over again.
I will leave you with this. The students I share this with usually pay me many thousands of dollars for this kind of information. I want you to stop sucking, so I will share it with you here and now…
“If you show your business to 1,000 people, you will make a six figure income.
In order to qualify to be one of these thousand, one must see the entire business presentation and receive at least two follow up communications from you!
These follow up communications can be anything from phone calls to emails to a firm handshake.”
Now, how fast can you get through your 1,ooo? Or will you continue to suck?
Email has become as common as the television set, the microwave and the cell phone.
But in 2015, many of us tend to ignore email messages as unnecessary, intrusive and down right rude. If you doubt me, tell me how many ways you utilize to avoid watching commercials.
Remember Tivo? How many of us do not fast forward through the commercials recorded on our DVR set-top boxes? And how many of us change the channel, turn down the volume or simply get up and leave for 2 minutes while the commercials are playing?
It takes a special kind of commercial to grab our attention and hold our focus for 30 or 60 seconds. Usually, that particular commercial speaks directly to us in one way or another.
Which brings me to my main point in this blog post: How do you get your emails opened and then read by your prospects and customers?
In the field of Internet Marketing, we call this metric your “email open rate”.
Here are 4 powerful pointers I use in my business and I hope you experience the same or better level of success that I have experienced with these.
#1: Your Focus Should Always Be Personal
The most important factor in making money with email marketing has little to do with the actual email itself. All of the other tips below are important, but they are all completely useless if you are not building a personal relationship with every person on your email list!
Don’t believe me? If your mother sends you an email, does it really matter what’s in the subject line or how the email is written? If you know that email is from mom, you are opening it and reading the message. Period. It also does not matter if the email is funny, entertaining, serious or even grammatically accurate.
The reverse is also true. How many email newsletters are you currently subscribed to that you never take the time to read? I don’t care how awesome the subject line is, you skip it, delete it or junk it. And you never open it. When the reader does not have a strong relationship with the email author, there is no urge or strong desire to read their emails.
For this reason, whatever you do with email marketing, you have to put the task of building a personal relationship first and foremost. Always ask yourself if the email you’re about to send is going to strengthen or potentially weaken your relationship with the reader.
#2: Use a Real ‘From’ Name and Signature
In order to build a strong personal relationship, I recommend you send your emails from a real person, not a company. No one wants to be friends with a company. This is just another way of saying people want to do business with people.
That’s why our emails are sent from Paul “Big Paulie” Moore, not Diamond Marketing Group, Inc. The Diamond Marketing Group does not have a wife and two daughters with a son on the way. Diamond Marketing Group did not retire from corporate America at age 36. Diamond Marketing Group does not do charity work with St. Jude Children’s hospital or visit the elderly in convalescent homes.
Even if this is your first time reading my blog, you are feeling some personal connection with me already. And to share more with me you will keep reading my entire website, opt into my email list, and find other ways to interact with me. This feeling will never happen if you hide behind some faceless corporate name or false persona.
#3: Use a Benefit or Curiosity Subject Line
All emails should either focus on a benefit or on piquing curiosity. A powerful way to do this is to address the person by name and ask them a question. Here are a few sample subject lines:
- “Frankly… I’m Puzzled.”
- “Bill, did you respond to my last email?”
- “Mary, did you get your account?”
- “Peter, is this you on Facebook?”
If you saw one of these in your inbox, you would be compelled to open up that email. You’re almost forced to open it or else it will bother you as the human mind automatically attempts to answer questions when presented with them. And even you do not ask a question, you always want to interest the reader to just find out “what this is all about”. That is piquing curiosity. The goal of a subject line is to make it nearly impossible for your subscriber to ignore the email.
#4: Write Like How You Talk
When you are writing your emails, make sure you write like you speak. You are not trying to write a PhD level dissertation. You are simply having a conversation with a friend. Try not to use big words, industry jargon, excessive acronyms or abbreviations and long run-on sentences. Think about the types of emails you send to your friends. Think about how you talk to your friends. Are your messages filled with long paragraphs and words most college graduates would need to look up in order to understand? Of course not.
To reiterate, it all comes down to building a personal relationship with the people on your email list. If you do that, then you will have a much easier time cutting through the inbox clutter. And you will see your open rates skyrocket!
I wish you much success!
