What is Direct Marketing ?

    Social media is a very powerful and ‘Now’ kind of way that people are able to connect with and make new friends and follow people they are interested in. That leads to interacting with new people and making new friends. These new friends are now world wide from all walks of life. We are no longer confined to meeting new people at the grocery store, post office, gas station, at work, through a few school friends
   Lord, thank you for the opportunity to get away from having to meet people in bars. That used to be the accepted way to met people as well as make business contacts. No wonder we had such an alcohol problem along with the broken homes from putting half drunk humans of the opposite sex all in the same room while the husband or wife is home with the kids. Fact of life, we just can’t handle that, to say nothing of the expense, a person can spend a months rent in one night if they are really having a good night.
   So the Internet is a relative safe way to ‘Expand Ones Horizons’ And I firmly believe that most people are good people. Sure there are people that are not to be trusted, so you need to take your time and get to know people by the things they talk about over time. Out of thy mouth, pourith thy heart.
   I try to take control of my circle of friends, everybody has a bad day and it good to try and lend a hand or a helpful comment, sometimes just a sympathetic ear. But for people that seem to always have a bad day, I will finally unfriend or unfollow them, because who we hang out with will rub off on us, they can drain our energy and influence our lives.
   Meanwhile lets say we all have about 500 people that we came in contact with on and off by way of all of our social connections, and by the way because of branches going out from those people the numbers are actually much larger.
  I n a normal store in your normal town, you need something, you make a list. You now go to the store (traffic, expense, pollution), choose from a limited selection for what is best going to fit your needs with what that store has in stock. Do you ever leave the store with just what was on the list?
   Now we can buy things on the internet, we can plan ahead when we know we are going to need something, research what company has the best product for what I need and buy it from them, no matter where in the world they are from and get it delivered to my door in a matter of days.
   So some companies no longer need the store and they can sell online in a number of ways. One way is to sell through big online marketers like Amazon or even Ebay and basically pay them a commission for handling the sale or they might choose to market themselves, and for anybody that knows it is very time consuming and expensive to do it in a big way to really get out there in the world. OR, and this is the one I like best, they let people like you and me become distributors and just tell others about their product, help them fill out an order to the company that than ships it directly to their door and than pay us a commission for helping with the sale, That is called ‘direct marketing’.
   Direct Marketing is not to be confused with Multi-level Marketing, MLMs work by signing up multitudes of small customers under you, endlessly, so that you get a small piece of every sale. There really is nothing wrong with this type of marketing, it just requires a lot of time, work and people. Unfortunately a lot of people get involved thinking they are going to make a bunch of money and hopefully make enough to pay for their own product that they use. But for most it’s a struggle to just brake even every month and they never really see the results the top leaders are doing, because they just can’t put in the time they do. It knocks down their self esteem and gives MLM a bad name. That kind of marketing is just not for me, I want to be sure I have happy customers.
   I hope this article has helped in some way, personally I have found a Direct Marketing company that has the top of the line quality and is something I think everyone needs. They even have a patented commission plan that no one else has. It payes a good healthy commission to a small number of people in such a way that I get an ever smaller amount from my downline while I show them the ropes and help them get ahead untill I no longer get anything from them except ‘numbers of sales’ and I can get bonuses as those numbers grow. That keeps everyone’s check bigger. The company has no time limits, quotas, auto-ship or anything like that. You make a sale, you get a commission, period. If you want to work for a Direct Marketing company, it is very important who you sign up under as to how much support you will get.
   I’m thinking of starting a “Chris’s Catalogue of Direct Marketing Companies” so if you think you have a product that would be of benefit, be top of the line and not conflicting with other choices in my Catalogue of products, I would be interested in partnering up with you.

A little bit about different alkaline water machines.

The big debate out there is not about “is Alkaline, Antioxidant water good for the body?” Everybody ,including doctors that have actually looked into it, (did you know that for all the years they spend in Med school, on average they only get 20 to 30 hours of training on Nutrition) anyway, everyone agrees it is good for you.

The debate is about PRICE.

Let me first explain about different metals that most everybody can understand. Lets say you are looking at getting a gold ring, pure gold is too soft for a ring what you find will be from 10K, that is about 41% gold to 18K that is 75% gold. But they are all still called GOLD. Nobody talks about what the other 25% to 60% is, it can literally be mixed with anything and you won’t know till your finger turns green or you have a reaction. Some gold is so watered down that it loses it’s yellow color and they call it ‘white gold’ but it is still gold.

Same thing with the plates inside of water ionizers. Enagic(r) the original Kangen Water machine is the only one that has medical grade solid plates, the rest of the ionizers use cheap plates from China and Korea. And there is people getting sick from the impurities and giving Alkaline water a bad name.

The problem with Enagic (r) is distributors just like me, get paid a commission based on the price of the machine. Sell a more expensive machine get a bigger commission. Did you know Enagic (r) has an excellent Alkaline, Antioxidant drinking water machine (it also does beauty water) for only $1480 ? Most distributors won’t tell you that, they want to sell you the $4000 machine partly because they get a bigger commission. Now don’t misunderstand the SD501 is a great machine, that is what we have and the DX model is very much the same. But my wife uses the High Alkaline water for stain removal and cleaning the oil based pesticides and junk off our fruits and vegetables, and we use the acidic water for killing bacteria and germs, like the infected eye our dog had a few weeks ago (all better now, thanks) to treating my athletes foot and disinfecting our hands on the go with a bottle she takes with us. Someday we will get the Super 501.

But not everybody needs or gets around to using all that, but everybody needs Healthy drinking and cooking water and that is where the Leveluk R model comes in. At only $1480 it gives you the healthy and alive 8.5, 9.0 and 9.5ph drinking and cooking water plus it also gives you the 5.5ph beauty water to keeping you looking good and is an excellent machine, we have sold a lot of them.

I made the mistake of getting one of those Korean machines at first because it was cheaper (didn’t know about the Leveluk R) and according to the internet they were all the same. Than within a couple months our good results went to bad and than to worse. We than bought the SD501 and got all our great results back. That other machine is in it’s box on the back porch. I can’t in good conscience sell it to anyone, so it turned out to be an expensive lesson. But it opened my eyes to the fact that people need to be educated and made aware of what is going on.
