About Peter Deth
Enough is enough! Something has to change right now!
From the outside my life looked pretty good and exiting. More than 20 years ago I made a big change in my life and choose my hobby to be my job, moved country and made Southern Spain my now home, learned new languages and a lot of other skills. Had my own business for all these years, had a great wife, a nice house, a nice car, travelled a lot in my time off but on the other hand … worked 12 – 14 hours every single day, 7 days a week for 9 – 10 months every year and that non-stop with rarely a day off.
After many years, even the nicest job can become a bit boring and you might be close to a burn-out. When you realize that you don’t have time for anything, no social life, no real hobbies outside your work and often also not enough money to really enjoy life if you finally have time; something doesn’t look right.
At that stage of life I was looking for alternatives and new challenges and … found Network Marketing or better it found me.
A friend of mine called me up and invited me to a restaurant for a business presentation …
When I got there I was exposed to the Network Marketing Environment for the very first time. The different
products were presented on a table, there was a Flip Chart and people were very nicely dressed. After seeing a short video and a really confusing presentation, the different levels in the company were explained and what the average income was. When the presenter said that they were earning a 6-Figure-Income and it took them 2 Years to get there, I took a pen and filled out the application form fast.
I thought if these crazy people making this kind of money and I am slaving at my JOB more than 12 hours a day and I have been working for many years doing the same thing making only a fraction of that … I am in!
As most people who are bitten by the Network Marketing bug, I thought that I am going to be a millionaire fast! I was out doing product and business presentations 6 nights a week while working crazy hours on top of this.
I went to every possible Network Marketing event and saw all the people who started at the same time than me having much more success.
I was a previous agricultural engineer, working in marketing and sales in the tire industry as well as a fully trained teacher; then moved to Spain being a scuba diving instructor and running my own successful diving center for more than two decades.
I saw the potential and value of building a Network Marketing business, but was constantly struggling, trying every strategy possible without ever seeing any great results. I couldn’t figure out what my problem was…
…. it finally became clear that I was treating my business like a hobby and a Plan B but I needed to start running my business like it was a 7 Figure Business. I made the decision to become fully committed to building my Network Marketing Business. I’ll be the first to say that success didn’t come easy. It wasn’t like I woke up the next day and was all of a sudden Multiple 6-Figure Earner.
I become realize that I needed 3 critical components in order to move forward in my business:
1) Pick ONE Lead Generation Strategy and Master It
2) Consistent Action
3) Build a Relationship with my Leads
The one strategy I connected best with was online marketing. I found this the best way to generate leads for my business. I had previous experience with online marketing but consumed every course I could find to bring my knowledge to the next level and most importantly took massive action.
Taking my Business Online
Once it was clear to me what I wanted to do, I started to research on Google ways to build my Network Marketing Business online and I found some Entrepreneurs that actually taught different ways to attract customers and reps through the internet … exactly what I wanted to do.
To be honest, learning the internet side of marketing your business is not easy but it’s worth it. I took me about 6 months to really learn the important ingredients and getting the hang of how to make it all work. Once I found my strategy and got committed to making it all work, some really great things started to happen:
• I started to recruit 1-3 new reps per week (that was 50 % more than before)
• I built an online team training site for my team … and didn’t have to sit down one-on-one anymore
• I started to build an international business
• I started to get more qualified prospects reaching out to me wanting to join my business
Having a good mix of Offline and Online Marketing has really boosted my results and I believe that it’s our job to embrace the changes in technology combined with Social Media being one of our biggest networking assets!
I can tell you from own experience, that success loves speed; especially in the network marketing industry. It is very possible to create a thriving business in a very small amount of time, as long as you are willing to invest in trainings for your business, work hard and be willing to be mentored by those who are already successful.
I can’t predict your success, only you can design your outcome. I can just share with you what worked for me through the trainings on my blog and inside of the products I recommend here as well. It’s your responsibility to dive in and implement what you learn here.
I have learned that diving in feet first was the best way for me to find success. I wish you the very best in your business and look forward to hearing about your success with online marketing soon!
