Wow! Our Weekend With “Big Al” Schreiter Was AMAZING! INCREDIBLE! STUPENDOUS!
If you ever get a chance to attend a Big Al Schreiter seminar, do whatever it takes to be there! Our weekend in Houston last weekend was out of this world. We learned SO much! And had a ball in the process.
“Big Al” is quite a character! He really seems to have missed his calling as a stand-up comedian! I’m not complaining! He had us in stitches as we listened and took notebooks full of notes. No problem staying focused or getting sleepy at any of Big Al’s seminars!
He said that in his “former life” (life before network marketing) he was an engineer. It is really hard to imagine someone so funny working as an engineer! (The kind of engineer that works with a pencil designing things, NOT driving a train! lol)
Watch this short clip and see how entertaining he is. You can see how he makes learning fun!
Big Al explains how using a sequence of words can turn on or turn off the sales alarm and also shares a sequence of words. (Just want to show sample speech of him, he is a great speaker.)
The theme of the seminar this weekend was hands-on internet marketing. For two days we worked on our own laptops and actually learned how to do all kinds of things, like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter,and YouTube.
Yes! We even recorded our own videos and put them up on YouTube! I can’t believe I even have my own “channel!” (That really sounds high-falutin’, until you realize that’s just how YouTube works, huh!)
First of all, I could never have imagined how easy it was to do! And secondly, we thought we would have to go buy a video camera. Turns out our cheap little digital camera that we already had does just fine!
The technology turned out to be extremely easy! But content . . . now that is another story! When you see these, you will know for a fact that they are the first three videos we’ve ever made in our lives. (Except for family videos,of course.)
If you had told me that I would ever in a million years allow a video up on YouTube with me in it, I would have said . . . well, what I would have said just isn’t suitable for print! And now there are three videos online, with more to come! I must say, it is excruciatingly painful for me to watch and hear myself on video. (And when you see these you will understand why!)
I mean, after all, I’m the one that finally had to hide the Christmas 1990 video from my family just to get a little relief from being laughed at and ribbed mercilessly for weeks by my kids! Here it is nineteen years later,and they’re still imitating me! (Don’t even try to find it, Trevor — you never will! That video will never see the light of day again!)
I could have never clicked that “upload” button myself! But . . . I closed my eyes, covered my ears, gritted my teeth, and allowed my husband to upload them to YouTube anyway . . .
So why on earth did I allow them to go online, for anyone in the whole wide world to see? Because I keep reading that to be successful online, you have to let people get to know you, and that video is the best way to do that. “People join people, not companies,” they say. Well, seeing me on there will certainly give people hope! They will take one look at these videos, and be thinking “We’re gonna be RICH! If SHE can be successful, I KNOW I can!”
In addition to the technical, hands-on education, we had a chance to just sit and pick Big Al’s brain for hours on end! We learned sooo much from the master network marketer that it will take many posts to even scratch the surface. So keep checking back! Or better yet, subscribe to our RSS feed! (If you haven’t been to the training, don’t worry – I didn’t know what that meant until last weekend either!)
