Creating Your Own Squeeze Page and Email List on WordPress
Ok so here’s the aha moment. My great friend Scott tells me, dude you got like 4 different email hosting sender list thinga-majigs and you should just add them to this wordpress app called MailPoet. I was busy at the time and then I remembered about it when I got hit with a $300 bill for blasting out to 12,000 emails in one month with YMLP (Your Mailing List Provider). So I exported all the lists I had in there using this process:
1) Login to your email provider
2) Go to Manage Contacts
3) Export the contacts into a CSV file (If they’re small lists you can merge them with others)
4) Then Install Mailpoet from the plugins area in your WordPress Blog (If you don’t have one, it’s super simple to setup, ask your hosting company). If you don’t have a hosting company check [this link out].
5) Mailpoet let’s you import up to 2000 leads. Once you pass that you’ll have to upgrade which I highly recommend doing.
6) Next Install Hybrid Connect. You may have to download the zip and install the plugin through your plugin link inside of WordPress. Grab the plugin here.
Any questions, comment below and I’ll be happy to help 🙂
When it comes to generating leads, that’s something we can all say is a pretty streamline type of deal. Once you find your niche of capturing leads, you are rocking and rolling in what I like to call finding your passion in marketing. You see this beautiful industry called Network Marketing has allowed my wife and I to retire from a J.O.B in our early 30s. I am absolutely grateful that my sponsor in a network marketing company cared about me enough to get me involved.
It wasn’t too long ago that I can recall feeling low and losing it all. I wasn’t prepared for the worst. I don’t know if you have been here or not, but it plainly sucks. Facing foreclosure and bankruptcy.
Since we pretty much hit rock bottom at the end of 2011, there wasn’t anywhere else to go but up. I guess you can the fear of having to get a job scared the crap out of me. I really don’t like to be tied into somebody else’s business / dream.
My wife had reminded me that I had been playing with this internet marketing / network marketing stuff since 2007 and it was time for me to bring her home. She no longer believed in working for someone either. January of 2012 she gave me the message of “I’m not going back to work next year, so you better find something to replace my income.”
My mind spun with ideas and I remember committing to ONE company for the next several months. I applied the concept of picking up the phone and calling my network marketing MLM prospects. From the moment she went to work to the moment she came back, I was hitting the phones calling leads I had built since 2009. 2 years of leads and I was sure somebody would listen. From all the NOs I got, I continued to push forward. They didn’t stop me because it wasn’t a No forever, just a No right now.
Believe it or not I was over my fears because I had a Burning Desire. I believe that a person against their will is of the same opinion still. Meaning that no matter how bad you want to help people change the quality of their life, if they are not willing to change for their own dreams, you absolutely unequivocally cannot do it for them.
So here’s my ultimate advice, if you have absolutely no system in place to build leads, then you should start by reviewing this system that has allowed me to create an influx of leads. I have more leads than I can handle and that’s a great problem to have. You want to be in that position where you have a list, and the ultimate next step is to pick up the phone and connect with them to collect a decision.
When you collect a decision you’re seeking the perfect person to be your business partner. Not all personalities are meant to work together. Therefore, on a scale of 1-10, 1 being the ultimate lazy person and 10 being the Top Income earner recruiter, give yourself your number. If you don’t know what number you are, most people are a 5 or a 6. In that case, you want to go seek 7s and maybe 8s. The reason for this is because when you find 7s and 8s they will go find 9s and 10s. And your team will duplicate that way. Seek people of influence and seek that pain.
Save Your Leads That Say No
A person’s pain today may be totally different 6 months from now. Don’t delete your leads. Even if they opt-out you can save that list for future use. I like to save the unsubscribes in my dropbox so I can have access to the leads in the future.
What Do I Ask People On The Phone Cesar?
So one of best questions you can ask that new person on the phone is “Hey John, this is Cesar I just noticed you requested more information on my website regarding leads for your business, just curious on where you’re stuck so I can assist you.” I can guaranty you that their sponsor hasn’t asked them that question because in my 15 years in network marketing, my sponsor never did. I had to go seek it somewhere else.
What’s You Product?
Human connection is a trait that will never go out of fashion. Your product is people and once you learn to leave your EGO at the door, you will no longer be afraid of picking up the phone and connecting. Since your ego is your opinion of yourself, if you’re afraid of the phone, it’s because your self image is more important. Ouch. I know that may sting a little but I had to wake up to that reality. If your EGO is of greater concern than helping people you are absolutely going to struggle. My final question to you is, are you willing to change?

When should I quit my job? When going to your J.O.B. is costing you more money than being at home working your business.
My teams keep dying, how can I build a team that will last? Be a business owner of influence. If you can get people in the business with influence, chances are your business will be strong. Your legs will die out when influence dies evaluate yourself on a scale of 1-10, Recruiting is easier for less than your scale # Recruit Up the social economic scale. Good stuff 🙂 We have a new group, when do you recommend we do WEEKLY presentations? Too many people in a small location is exciting

So it’s been a minute since I’ve brought a new guest speaker to my list. I believe this guy’s story will help you understand the philosophy behind it all. You may connect with his story.
He went from literally broke to building a team of 60,000 people in his home business. Would that be worth getting value from?
Why has it taken me awhile you ask to bring someone out? You can say I hit a pretty high point in my business and life that honestly, I’ve been relaxing for the past few months. Living the lifestyle. I believe I put in some long nights and days when I started building my online system. I was in heavy momentum that when I achieved a high point, I really needed to relax.
So tonight’s call really brought into prospective how I got here. I’m paying my respects to this multi-million dollar coach that help me get here. Some of you know I spent over $2000 to get coached by another gentleman back in 2009, so the fact that Mr. Scott Aguilar was able to bring value to my list and offer his coaching service for less than what I paid was a blessing to everyone.

You may be a point in your life where you say, “man Cesar I wish I had $2000 to hire a millionaire so he can check why I’m stuck not making over $1000, $5000, $10,000 and beyond income in my online or network marketing career. I’m tired of putting blame on other people or situations and making excuses.”
You’re absolutely correct, 2014 may be the year of change for you. It’s not too late. I spent more than $2000 since 2009 to better my life, business and mindset to take me to the next level.

Hello my friend, today I’m going to share with you a little tip on what has helped me brand myself.
You know that tethering word on your smart phone. People talk about it all the time. You can tether your wifi enabled phone to your computer / laptop or even iPad, becoming “kid friendly wifi.” I’ve done it with an Android Phone as well as an iPhone. Well in the last 6 years of heavily marketing myself on the internet, I’ve came up with this simple free solution to be able to brand yourself and even capture leads at an Internet Marketing Event.
As of writing this article here’s some tips on setting up your devices:
iPhone 5S (latest update) 7.1:
1) Tap Settings -> General -> About 2) Tap on Name and change it to your domain or sales funnel (I changed mine to CesarRamirez.com for branding)
On Android Phones:
1) Slide down your finger from the top to the bottom to pull down Smart Phone options
2) Tap the Settings Icon 3) Tap More 4) Tap Tethering & Portable Hotspot 5) Tap Configure Wi-Fi- hotspot
Imagine this, you’re on a flight to an event. You just arrived at the airport and are looking to get online instead of using the airports wifi because it costs $10 an hour. You crank open your phone and tether it to your laptop. You realize that others around you are trying to get in but they can’t because you password protected it. Suddently you receive a message from them or an optin because they arrived at your capture page looking to snag your internet. You have just created a HTTP://WWW.ADINFUSION.COM and a perfect marketing system without working too hard. It didn’t cost you anything but doing something you were already going to do instead of branding “Cesar’s iPhone” as my SSID, you’re branding it as your domain name.
