The Duchess of Earle cordially invites all her readers to get online quickly to register for a meeting this evening with Loral Langemeier. Loral will be discussing how to strongly finish out the year 2010 with your business. Click here to register now! Rustle those stumps, dear readers, and finish the year with a bang!
Well, unfortunately the Duchess of Earle had to be away from her phone booth for part of Jeffery Combs‘ call on Tuesday evening when it was live, so today, she went back to listen to the archived edition online, so as not to miss any pearls of wisdom.
She shares with her readers herein some of those little goodies she heard – in hopes that they will also find them beneficial.

It is interesting that, just as the Duchess began to type this post, there was reason to assist the Duke on a little project he was working on. It led her to read a passage from Eugene Peterson’s The Message, where in Mr. Peterson was commenting on learning.
His remarks were specifically about happiness not being the result of book-learning, and this same notion seems equally as fitting to the notion of learning how to approach business. He says (on p. 2135), “Something more like apprenticeship is required, being around someone who out of years of devoted discipline shows us, by his or her entire behavior, what it is. Moments of verbal instruction will certainly occur, but mostly an apprentice acquires skill by daily and intimate association with a “master,” picking up subtle but absolutely essential things, such as timing and rhythm and “touch.” ” Timing… rhythm… touch… All qualities of thought gleaned by observation, put into practice by modeling the examplar. It seemed to the Duchess that this is just what she’d been hearing about on the archived call…
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
So now back to Mr. Combs: After a series of what the Duchess will call “speedbumps” in the road of life,” Mr. Combs has spent many years learning to discipline himself, learning how to prospect and be successful in business; therefore he has much to offer those that are willing to listen to – and act upon – his counsel. He has been in life situations that have been more than challenging, but has come through them, not only to survive, but to thrive – and now is easily a six-figure income earner from the comfort of his home in Stockton, California.
Mr. Combs’ subject for the evening had to do with closing a sale – a subject anyone in relationship or internet marketing should be studying and practicing continually. So here they come, friends, some of the ‘goodies’ the Duchess most appreciated:
In order to close a sale, one must be able to ask questions and they must come “early and often” in the conversation with the potential business partner/customer.
There is a “rock-solid science” to asking questions… It’s a science, but also an art.
Your questions should create a connection with the individual. To use questions successfully, you must have a genuine interest in the person and make them feel that in your voice and action. If your approach and execution are well done, it won’t feel like an interrogation by the local constabulary.
As you chat with people:
You’re looking for people who qualify for your time – please note, friends, that not everyone does!
You’re seeking those that can afford your product and/or service.
You’re watching for teachability – people who are willing to be coached, willing to learn.
You’re also looking for independence – those that are dependent upon you will never make it on their own.
Learn to spot resourcefulness – people who don’t focus on the ‘how’ of things, but on the ‘why’ of things and then go ahead and take action.
You require more leads than you have time to get to. If you don’t have enough leads, you tend to get attached to your potential customers/partners. If you don’t have enough leads now, get some more – buy them if necessary.
The science of closing comes down to two issues: hurting and rescuing. Your potential client/partner is hurting in some way (the number one biggest hurt is money). Find out where their pain is and then throw them a lifeline: offer them your product/service/opportunity.
Now, dear readers, assuming you’re here on account of one of life’s hurts and assuming that it’s likely financial, would it give you an assist if the Duchess threw you a lifeline? If you’re that person that is coachable, that desires to learn and is willing to take action, go ahead! Grab this lifeline by clicking below to check out Jeffery Combs’ excellent set of CDs on the subject of mastering the science and the art of asking questions. You’ll learn to build your business and close those deals!
Also, before the Duchess signs off this evening, she’ll mention to you all that there is a More Heart Than Talent event coming up right after the first of the new year and she invites you to seriously consider attending – you can even bring your entire team, as there is a group rate available. Click here for more information.
The Duchess of Earle just crossed paths with a saying that impresses her today – one of those unattributed things that pops up in one’s life and arrests one’s attention. This idea is spurring the Duchess on this morning – and that’s a good thing. Actually, that’s a GREAT thing! Matter of fact, it’s so great that she thought she’d immediately post it here for sharing, in hopes that it will spur her readers on to plan their work and work their plan:
Well, it’s late, but the Duchess of Earle is arriving at Steve Renner‘s office in Bloomington, MN, for a Tuesday evening meeting. It’s been awhile since she’s found her way here on a Tuesday – or even a Saturday, as life has been just a bit too booked. Mr. Renner used to have a live meeting every week, but then altered his pattern and adopted a “meeting in a secret location” strategy for some months, which rather altered the Duchess’ schedule and allowed other things to creep into her schedule and overtake this Tuesday evening slot. But she’s been in attendance online when possible.
Anyway, Steve is in full swing describing the iNetGlobal business when the Duchess arrives. As she sets up her computer and gets ready to relay the events of the evening in this blogpost, she notices that the room holds a small number of other guests. It was announced at the end of last Saturday morning’s meeting that Annie from Toronto would be here on Tuesday evening and she is indeed present, wearing a cute black and white outfit. Alongside of her sit two other people – a man and a woman of Asian heritage – whose identities are unknown to the Duchess. Jim Eng, one of the local leaders, is also here, along with omnipresent Jonathan, Steve’s assistant, who mans the computer and the cameras.
After finishing the presentation of the business plan, Steve takes us to Acesse.com, which is the iNetGlobal search engine, for a short tour.
Next, he talks about getting started in iNetGlobal, saying it’s A-B-C,1-2-3 easy: A) sign up, B) get your distributor kit and C) get started surfing. It’s that easy, that simple. Then, to start building your team, 1) find one person to join the program as a consultant. Then find 2) another and 3) another – and now you’ve gotten to the Executive level. If you add those people to your team and help them do the same thing you’ve just done, you’ll build a business in iNetGlobal and be able to make money. It’s possible to build a million dollar business with this company, as many are well on their way to proving. The global Chinese community in particular is doing well at demonstrating this. Annie from Toronto has really been building her team, not just in Canada, but in China itself.
If you’re new to this program, you can get started with the purchase of the Consultant kit for $59.95 USD. There is a professional support team that will help you get started and help your people do the same. If you want to begin with the small business package, there is a special match of 500 advertising packs. And there are other matches for the larger packages as well, which the Duchess will not attempt to duplicate here – she can’t type as fast as Steve can talk!
Steve now asks for comments from those present about their experience with the company. So first, Jim Eng gets up to say he’s doing nicely with the company as he approaches his first anniversary, which comes at the end of this month. This makes the Duchess realize that, to the best of her recollection, this very day is the anniversary of the launch of iNetGlobal’s AdPacs program. The Duchess signed up for it on July 23rd last year and recalls being surprised to learn they’d already been taking funds for two days – so she jumped in immediately. Steve next invites the Duchess to speak and share her iNetglobal story, which she does. He introduces her with the comment that she really didn’t know much about computers when she first came to his training class in December of 2007. She pipes up to say that she did know how to email and search on a search engine, but that was about it. She really didn’t even have a clue about packing up her machine to bring to a meeting and getting it set up once she got there. In those days, she relied on her beloved Duke for that detail – but she has long since managed to handle that on her own. So she shares how she got started, that she learned a lot through the MIT Training and finally got her blog started in February/March of 2008. She offers the information that her iNetGlobal AdPacs organization grew quite nicely right from the beginning, that as a result of her blogging her business went international when people in the UK signed up under her and that her earnings paid for their share of the expenses for their son’s wedding last fall. Then Steve invites the mystery man to speak. He turns out to be Dr. Lee – or is it Dr. Li? (The Duchess frankly isn’t sure about the spelling and herein humbly begs the dear Doctor’s forbearance for her ignorance. But for the sake of being able to proceed with this writing she’ll spell it Lee, and repair it if she learns otherwise.) Dr. Lee, who is here accompanied by his bride, has driven here from Chicago; he steps up and offers remarks. Lastly, Steve invites Annie to speak. She is a single mom who works from home. She has “incredible focus,” says Steve. He met her in Miami last summer at the iNetGlobal rally – and she just went home and exploded her business. She does six webinars a week and last night’s webinar had 200 people on it. She also regularly runs trainings for her people.
Annie tells how, after she joined the company, she learned the products and the compensation plan and then just shared them with a few of her friends. They shared with their friends and things took off. She says it’s easy to understand, easy to do and share. She offers webinars every day and trains in addition to the presenting the business opportunity. Now she has many businesss leaders around the world. They have a wonderful platform for online advertising, and if you have your own business, the company can give you the place from whence to market it. This is a “golden mine,” she says, both now and into the future. She brings the thanks of all her team to Steve for creating this wonderful business opportunity, so that they can all make a good living.
Steve takes the floor again and talks about how he started the business. A little over a decade ago, he’d never owned or even been on a computer. He was painting houses for a living, but had a desire to do something else to earn his keep. As he got familiar with computers, he started teaching himself how to design a website and then progressed way beyond that to making milllions of dollars on the internet. “If I can do it, anybody can do it!” he asserts. “I’m not highly educated. There are a few things that you need to know to be successful online. The best thing you can do is to gain knowledge. The more you learn, the better you’ll be! Those that are making money online these days are mostly young and very, very smart – and they’re out there making millions. They’re barely old enough to shave! I’m a grandfather, but still making money online.” He’s working to build a nice residual income for himself and his grandchildren. This is possible for anyone that builds a business in iNetGlobal, as it is becoming for Steve himself. He predicts that iNetGlobal and Acesse will be household names that everybody recognizes, just as Google and Microsoft are widely known today.
Well, says Steve, that’s the presentation for the day: If you want to build this, you can run your own webinars, as Annie does – and it’s bringing her “a couple thousand bucks a day.” Otherwise, get people on the iNetGlobal calls and we’ll help you build your businesss.
For our information Jim Eng has a webinar tomorrow, Wednesday, July 22, at 2:00 PM Central time, on the business plan. At 3:00 Central time tomorrow afternoon there will be leadership training. The next company-sponsored webcast will be Saturday morning here at 9:00 Central time. The link for that last meeting is www.instantpresenter.com/upline1 and the password is imtrain.
So that’s a wrap – at least that’s what the Duchess thought. As it turns out, it’s only a break – during which Steve sits down to touch base with her, since they’ve not had a chance to chat of late. But then it becomes apparent there is more on the agenda: Annie is to make a presentation in Chinese to her leadership group.
Soon, she starts her presentation. She talks a bit and then introduces Steve to the group. He comes to the front of the room and Annie vacates her chair for him. Dr. Lee then kindly comes forward to sit in as translator: Steve talks, then Dr. Lee offers the Chinese version and they alternate their way through the information that follows. Steve explains that they’re having to do much work to bring things up to speed for the growing membership. We’re now approaching a total membership of 10,000, which is up from the 2,000 we had and is requiring upgrades in servers and software programming. There was an experiment conducted which, as it turned out, failed to calculate the commissions correctly. They are in the process of correcting the errors in the programming and he asks everyone’s patience as they build a system that will handle the increasing demands made upon it. (They expect as many as 100,000 members in the near future.) Once this is fixed, they will back to paying commissions on a normal basis. He thanks everyone for their patience while it’s being worked on.
Annie comes back to make some additional comments. She then introduces Jim Eng, who comes to the front of the room to make his remarks. Dr.Lee comes to sit alongside Mr. Eng and they work as before. First off, he expresses appreciation to the people that are listening in, acknowledging their hard work for the company. He also comments on how hard Steve and his team are working for us all to build the company so that it will serve us well. The search engines are powerful and offer a huge opportunity to build a fruitful business for us all. The best part of iNetGlobal is in the future – the next six months in particular will be big. If possible be at the next conference, which will likely be in Las Vegas.
While Jim talks and Dr. Lee translates, Annie sidles up alongside the Duchess and quietly invites her to speak to the group. While she certainly feels honored, the Duchess also is a bit stunned and hardly knows what to think that she’d say. Annie encourages her and next thing she knows, the Duchess is on her way to the front of the room. Dr. Lee once again graciously interprets. Well, the Duchess can’t recall all that she said, except that she felt quite honored to be invited and to welcome everybody to this meeting and encourage them to build their businesses. Steve encouraged her to mention her blog, which she did. When Annie sits back down, the question comes from the listeners about the address of the Duchess’ blog, so she comes back to the front and types it into the computer. (She’d like to say thank you to those that were so kind as to be interested enough to ask to visit this blog. It will be an honor to have you do so. )
After Annie wraps up, she comes back to thank those that have spoken. With a charming smile, she takes the Duchess’ hand and says, “Now you’ll be famous in China!” This makes the Duchess giggle a bit, as she has never really expected to be called “famous” – let alone in far-off China! As she looks back on the events of the year and a half since she took her first MIT Training, she is amazed to find herself doing things she’d never have dreamed. “Whodathunk” the events of this evening! Certainly not the Duchess!
In response to her question about the Chinese team reading her blog, Annie and Dr. Lee both assure the Duchess that many Chinese-speaking people read English quite well. So to the Chinese members of the iNetGlobal team, please know you are welcome here. If you look around, you will find notes from Mr. Renner’s MIT Trainings and those may be of some help to you as you launch your own internet blogs and businesses. You will also find this lady “has her fingers in a lot of pies” and sometimes posts things just for the fun of it or because they impressed her spirit. Hope you find things both useful and inspiring. Enjoy! If she knew how to say “Come again!” in Chinese, she would – but she’ll settle for sending the message conveyed in the video below, in wishing prosperity to all:
Well, friends, the Duchess of Earle is just quickly posting to let you know that the new and long-awaited merged website for iNetGlobal and AdPacs and iNetSurf has happened today. She cordially invites you to check out the new look!
It’s Wednesday evening and the Duchess of Earle is catching up on her latest blog posting, written this past weekend:
It’s Saturday morning and, full of blueberry pancakes she shared with her Duke over breakfast, the Duchess of Earle once again traverses Bloomington, Minnesota to meet with Steve Renner about iNetGlobal and AdPacs and the search engine Acesse.
iNetGlobal is in the final stages of pre-launch. In addition to the winding down of the pre-launch phase, the Fast Start Bonus program is also singing its swan song this month. One can enter the program at a cost of $1997 and earn at a VIP level of earnings for the first 60 days while they build their organization. It’s a great opportunity that lets one earn higher pay while they build – a rare thing, friends.
Steve is announcing that they’ve lowered the requirements to get to the VIP program: one now can get into the VIP program with only two consultants (previously it took three). This is a great deal – makes it so much easier.
When you build an organization, you will also position yourself for what is called the Leadership bonus, which allows you to earn overrides on your organization. That’s a pretty good thing! It pays you to build and it builds you a residual income. That’s the kind of income a person really wants to have.
There are other pieces to the earnings plan, more than the Duchess will go into here. Suffice it to say, there are many ways to earn with this program and the Duchess can gratefully tell you that it’s possible to make money here and encourages you to check it out.
Now there is a break in the program while Annie in Toronto gives the iNetGlobal presentation in Chinese. This is because this company is really rockin’ and rollin’ amongst the Chinese communities in Canada and the US and Annie is one of those leading the charge.
Renner now launches into discussion of his new geo-targeted advertising service (which is actually still in beta stage and not yet available online), called V-Local. They’ve been playing for a year with this in a prototype called Twin City Business Directory – and it’s been very successful, so they’re about to roll it out to the whole membership. Businesses can advertise, run specials, offer coupons, announce events, etc. This is a great way for them to get ranked in the search engines, which is a truly valuable service for the businesses. As an example, he brings up the ad for Minneapolis restaurant, Cafe di Napoli and shows how perfectly this site is optimized.
But that’s not all he’s got to announce this morning. The next new thing is the announcement of a strategic partnership with Expedia.com that allows members to have their own travel site. This will be available to members on the monthly autoship program (this means you’re paying every month for the automatic purchase of advertising – this autoship is fully commissionable on all levels). It offers another opportunity to members to build a business and earn on their sales – in addition to being able to earn on their own purchases. There will be an additional monthly charge for this program, as is the case with two other services in the Renner internet marketing arsenal, V-Shops (shopping cart and affiliate program) and V-Webcast.
Now he takes questions. V-Local will be up and running before the launch on March 1st. There will be a training session put out on the internet about the Affiliate.com program, which will walk members through the process of signing up.
In response to a question about whether our domain’s cpanels have autoresponder or email capability, he answers that the Cpanel has a simple mailing list. It’s not a smart autoresponder and you cannot set up a series of sequenced messages that go out. You just enter their names when they sign up for your list and send them out your letters with offers.
He reminds people that we have, in honor of the Chinese New Year, the $400 Laptop offer. If you bring in five people that buy in with the Gold Deluxe package, then you will be given $400 toward the purchase of a new computer.
Steve signs off, saying Tuesday evening is the next broadcast. And this is the Duchess of Earle, signing off too.
The Duchess of Earle came across this quote today and thought to share it with her readers. She finds it encouraging as she treads the road toward greater dominion over the processes of internet marketing, building businesses online and offline, networking, etc.
“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and the glory of the climb.” ~~~ Sir Winston Churchill
And here is a bonus set of quotes from the same wise and articulate gentleman:
Well, dear readers, the Duchess of Earle has been swamped with many things of late and, while she has written posts, they have not been proofed and finished, so they have languished in the ‘Draft’ file. Tonight, she avails herself of an unexpected opportunity to play catch-up and therefore, she offers this post, written on January 6th of this new year of 2009:
The first question is about the pay on the Widgets now displaying on the @cesse search engine. He says that they don’t have that part of the system operational yet, but that when they do, the Widgets in the @cesse search engine are likely to pay around 10-20% of what the advertiser is paying per click. How to put an ad on the search engine?
Go to your AdPacs site, he says and go to the Advertising Content listing on the menu. Click on Ad Texts. He selects one of the sites he has and sets out to write an ad for it. Write the first line with the title, the second line should be keyword-rich. The display URL is what people are going to see when they see the ad and the destination URL is the real address. The next thing to do is set up the budget for the ads. You can bid as low as $.10.
He invites other questions and the request for an AdPac PowerPoint presentation is made. Steve likes the sound of that and says that they’ll look at putting one together.
Next comes a question about getting cash out of one’s account. Steve goes to the AdPacs site and walks the questioner through the process of drawing cash out of one’s account.
The question arises if the ads have RSS capability. The answer is that this is something that could be done in the future, but it’s likely a long ways away because there are other, “bigger fish to fry” ahead of that.
That closes out this evening’s meeting. The next meeting will be Thursday morning at 11:00 CST. To attend that meeting, click here. Please note the password for the Thursday morning webcast is: imtrain
When you have checked out the program and decide you’d like to sign up, you’re welcome to do so at http://www.juliaearle.inetglobal.com and you can rest assured the Duchess will personally welcome you to the company!
The Duchess thanks you for checking out her blog and bids you all a pleasant evening!
It’s a gray Saturday morning – Baby New Year 2009 seems to be peacefully ‘sleeping in’ as the Duchess of Earle makes her way across Bloomington from West to East. The Duchess is running behind as she arrives. Merryn Flavell , phone in hand, is out in the lobby watching for the Duchess’ arrival.
Inside the meeting room, Steve Renner is already chatting with those online, finding out who is new and greeting everyone. As the Duchess and Merryn get set up with their computers, he launches into his presentation about iNetGlobal’s vast array of services for internet marketers. The computer system is running slowly this morning here at the Cambria Suites in Bloomington, so the Duchess must wait for the web to come up. By the time it arrives, Steve is well into his remarks. So the Duchess will jump in right where he is.
Cash Club is a great way for you to save money when you shop. Sign up – which is NO CHARGE – and get rebates on what you buy – and the best thing is that you can invite your family and friends to sign up and earn 40% on what they buy too. An easy way to economize in these lean times!
AdPacs is a system for online advertising and the @cesse (pronounced ‘access’) search engine are in the process of propelling iNetGlobal into a billion dollar business. Within a couple of years, Steve expects that this business will be turning a billion dollars a year – a hundred million a month. WOW! The Duchess is excited to think she’s part of an enterprise with such prospects as those! – and please consider yourself warmly invited by the Duchess to join in the fun and the prosperity!
Steve pauses for questions before presenting the business opportunity…then takes a short break.
There is a great business opportunity in iNetGlobal. The Duchess can attest to this fact.
There is a Preferred Customer Program, which offers a 30% discount on iNetGlobal purchases. This discount comes in the form of a rebate on your product purchases.
When you bring others into the program, you earn 5% on the purchases of your front line and 2% on the next five levels down. That’s a great beginning – but there’s more! As you move upward in rank in the program your percentage increases: at the Gold VIP, you earn the basic percentage mentioned above plus an additional 2%. At Platinum VIP, which is the next level, you will get the basic 2%, plus 3%. At Diamond, it’s an additional 4% and Blue Diamond 5%. It’s not quite a simple as the Duchess is explaining it here, so please be sure to attend one or more of Mr. Renner’s presentations in order to fully understand the operation of the program.
There are other excellent benefits this program offers, including revenue sharing and something called ‘royalty bonus.’ There has also been a recent change in the requirements to become a VIP. It’s now easier to move upward in the program, which is really good news. It takes at least three personally sponsored consultants to get to Gold level. To move to Platinum, you must have at least two Golds, both personally sponsored. For Diamond level , one must have two Platinums in their organization in different legs and for Blue Diamond, it takes two Diamonds in different legs. After that there is the Black Diamond level, which requires two Blue Diamonds in different legs.
To qualify to earn as fully as possible, one needs to do three things: sign up as a Preferred Customer, sign up as a Consultant and get the Consultant’s kit, select and purchase your starter package.
Now Steve begins to field questions again. He explains that your repurchase bonuses are based on the percentage you’re repurchasing each day. The higher level at which you repurchase, the more you’ll earn.
He mentions that they now have about a thousand spiders indexing the internet, which is producing 1,000,000 pages per day. Soon there will be two thousand spiders, which will double the production and after that they’ll bump up to three thousand spiders. By that time, there will be results that are equal to what Google can produce. Steve goes to Acesse to show the progress in the number of search results for the word ‘travel’ – which has been his yardstick since the beginning. At first, there were only about 12,000 results; a couple of weeks ago, it was in the 100,000 range and this morning, it’s in the 300,000 range – so there is huge progress in place. “This is where the real future of the company lies, ” says Steve, “because this is where the $100,000,000 per month will come from.”
Then he invites Merryn and the Duchess to step up to the camera and share their remarks about their experience with iNetGlobal. Merryn talks about how she earned her EdS degree from the University of Minesota and started her online university, which can be found at flavellonline.com. She says she’s earning money online every day. The Duchess comments that she took Renner’s MIT class a year ago and how it has turned her life on a completely different course: she has made her first money online as a result of this company and has started a company with Merryn and will very soon be launching their membership site, iNetRocket.com.
There are Rallies coming up. They’re working on them for Portland, OR, and other places. Next week will be the Rally in QuadCities area of Iowa and Illinois. You’re all invited! Tell them the Duchess sent you!
The Duchess of Earle is pleased to let her readers know that iNetRocket, while not online yet, is nearing the time it will be online. Please ‘stay tuned’, as the saying goes, for the launch. She and Merryn Flavell have been working hard these last weeks, getting ready for you, our readers. There will be webcasts and trainings in getting your internet marketing businesses launched. Registrations will be limited each month, so when you learn that the iNetRocket has launched, you’ll want to sign up fast. Otherwise, your name will wind up on the waiting list until the early birds have gotten their businesses underway. So, you’re invited to be up with Venus, the morning star, and get that proverbial worm – your iNetGlobal membership! Merryn and the Duchess will be pleased to work with you and assist you in getting your business LAUNCHED!
