The ‘Social Media Myth’ Exposed… (And Why You’re Probably Doing It The Wrong Way)

July 27, 2009

Most social media marketers have been suffering from an epidemic of misguided and ineffective information spreading around the industry.  I call it the ‘Social Media Myth’… And you could very well be one of it’s many victims.

In fact, I’d say about 99% of social media entrepreneurs have no clue that they’ve been just spinning their wheels and completely missing out on THE most vital, foundational, and long-term component of true social media success…

This ‘missing piece’ of the puzzle is probably the very reason you haven’t experienced the level of success you are looking for yet… And even if you have experienced success with social media, without this ‘missing element’, there’s no guarantees for how long it will really last.

Well, it’s time to put an end to the myth….

What I’m going to share with you today is NOT another facebook or twitter strategy… But an entirely new business model that will absolutely transform your entire business right before your eyes.

Up until now, only the ‘who’s who’ of social media were really clued into this… There is a very specific formula for integrating this ‘missing element’ with social media marketing that will:

1.  Instantly brand you as a leader and authority figure and is the ultimate trust-building tool

2.  Create a viral, automated stream of targeted traffic coming in 24/7

3.  Get you top search engine rankings within hours

4.  Set you up with a long-term profit center that’s YOURS forever, no matter what company or product you’re currently promoting

And it’s 100% FREE…

Ever since I discovered this formula, my business has undergone a complete and utter paradigm shift and I’ve experienced more success in the last few months than ever before.  This truly is the SECRET to a lifetime of unshakable, immensely powerful, and massively profitable social media success.

I’ve prepared a very special training video for you here today where I’m going to reveal EXACTLY what this missing element is and how the entire formula actually works… This is going to be THE MOST IMPORTANT training video you ever watch, and I’m not kidding.  Take some time, watch the whole thing, and then I’m going to let you know how you can get access to a VIP webinar I’m doing for the community for FREE later on this week where I’ll walk you, step by step, throughout this entire process.  You DO NOT want to miss out on this:

Please enable Javascript and Flash to view this Viddler video.

If you are truly looking to create massive success using social media, it’s absolutely IMPERATIVE that you have a personal branding blog

Your blog IS your profit center… And when done correctly, it will prove to be to be the most long-term, automated, and lucrative business model you could ever possibly imagine.

Why so many social media marketers have misssed this, I have no idea.  But we’re really at the forefront right now of something HUGE.  You have just been exposed to information that only the top 1% of people in our industry are even aware of.  And you now have the chance to ‘ride the wave’ before the general public.

I’m doing a FREE training webinar this Thursday night at 6pm PST/ 9pm EST where you will get guided through the entire process of setting this up for yourself.  I’m going to transform you into a master blogger and social media marketer who can literally create wealth on command.  This IS the evolution of online wealth creation and you are now sitting at the forefront…

We are about to experience a REVOLUTION… Never before in history has the average person been able to earn a living by finding their passions, blogging about it, building relationships and friendships, and create an unlimited amount of abundance by doing so.

I am so excited to share this new knowledge with you… Take advantage of this NOW by claiming your spot on the free training webinar this Thursday night.  I have no doubt this will prove to be the BIGGEST tipping point of your entire life…

Space is limited.
Reserve your Webinar seat now at:

After you register for Thursday night’s webinar by clicking on the link above, make sure you share this with your Twitter friends and followers.  They’re going to be so darn thankful you took the time to do so!

Awesome info, as always Katie!

EVERYBODY on your list and reading your blog should be on this live webinar, I will be watching very closely. I currently generate 50-70 free leads daily from social media and my blog, but there’s always another level.

Talk soon,

Hi Katie,

Great post and video. I have registered for the seminar but don’t think I can attend. I am in Europe (betcha have more fans here than you know!) and it will be 4 in the morning for me.

To reach the European market it would be great if you could present in the morning PST.

Thanks again. I love your approach and wisdom,


Melissa July 28, 2009 at 6:36 pm

Same with me- Also in Europe… would love to attend but won’t be awake at 3am my time :)

Hey there dude, I am still awaiting a reply to all those queries regarding Auth. Net.

If you can’t make it to webinar on, will it be a recording. I am really interested hearing the rest of this training.

Carolina, yes it will be recorded :)


Rhonds Maguire July 27, 2009 at 4:11 pm

Hi Katie … thanks for the great info. I’m pretty entrenched in a Ning site for blogging. Is this site as good as Word Press? Would love to know your thoughts!


Katie Freiling July 27, 2009 at 4:43 pm

Rhonda, no, it’s definitely not the same thing. Ning is another social networking site, just like Twitter or Facebook. You absolutely want to have your own blog that brands YOU! This is your ‘profit center’ that you will have for life and it will be the most profitable and long-term business model you could ever possibly create. Don’t get me wrong, Ning, Twitter, FB, and all of the social networking sites out there are very important, but they are not your central hub like I explained in the training video above. Hope this helps! And I’m looking forward to seeing you on the webinar!

kathy jodrey July 27, 2009 at 4:16 pm

Hey Katie,

I consider myself one of the lucky few to have received your awesome blogging training, and it’s by far the best thing I’ve ever done for my business.

You’re a remarkable leader and trainer, and rise above the rest in your selfless desire to share your secrets with the masses.

Keep up the great work…the world is watching!

Fathi Ridwan Basalamah July 27, 2009 at 4:29 pm

Yes, Katie you always speak the truth. Even for the most experience internet marketer or social media marketer they could sometimes become stacked, why it doesn’t sell.
In my point of view there are others things to consider beside HOW TO make business online using internet marketing tools or social media marketing system which consider as A NEW METHOD of online marketing or as a COMPREHENSIVE online marketing.
We have to considers:
I am not an expert of the above mentioned.
Internet as the tool or media marketing is nothing else to seek for high traffic, mostly used as advertising that can sell.


Gary July 27, 2009 at 6:24 pm

Good stuff Katie.
I just loaded WordPress on my servers.
It was a painless install.
Now I will start moving all my content to the WordPress package.
I will let you know how it works out.



Ivelina July 27, 2009 at 6:29 pm

Brilliant video as always.
Thank you so much.
I have a blog,but it does need a bit of makeover.
I am looking forward to the webinar.
Warmest regards


Jazz Siebert July 27, 2009 at 7:26 pm

Thanks so much Katie! Wow! Im so excited. This is something that’s actually been on my mind lately cuz I see the wave of the future is!! You Nailed it!

See you thursday. :)

Al Rod July 27, 2009 at 7:33 pm

Very informative video. I just got a blog with Wordpress but kind of on overwhelm as to how to get the rest done; such as tricking out the look, top navigation bars, opt in form, etc.

Your insight and suggestions to make progress here would really, really, really be appreciated. Thanks! Al Rod


Katie Freiling July 27, 2009 at 7:55 pm

Hi Al Rod, those are great suggestions for Thursday’s webinar! I’ll definitely address them and I’m looking forward to seeing you there! :)


Gary July 27, 2009 at 7:34 pm

Here is my first blog using the new WordPress software.
It really is that easy to install and get working. :)

It’s amazing what I am learning from you. I do not know how to thank for it. And the same as with Pam … I’m also in Europe and it’s going to be very difficult for me to attend the webinar because of the time, but very happy to know that it’s going to be recorded. Many many thanks


Paul July 27, 2009 at 8:27 pm

Hi Katie, enjoyed your info on blogging and look forward to your webinar later.
1 question …I have a wordpress blog put together by someone else …how can I change the theme?

Again thanks for your help..



Beth Hewitt July 27, 2009 at 8:48 pm

Hey Katie,

Great video…I can’t believe this! I actually worked this concept out like a week ago and asked my angels to give me knowledge to get my wordpress blog up and running….and you magically appear.

“If you ask the universe your questions it will answer them!”, cant wait for the webinar.

Have a great day.


Damayanthi July 27, 2009 at 9:37 pm

Thank you Katie for your great information.
Timing couldn’t be any better for me as I just decided to start a wordpress blog.
I do have a blog but not a WP.
What is your advise on having multiple blogs?



Carole Holden July 27, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Hi, Katie,
You are so inspiring and easy to follow – great trainer. I’m part of JB’s Social Media Mastery course, and also have tapped into some of your trainings. Then Life Happened. I’m almost back, but here is my frustration and great desire: there is TMI and so much to learn. I get the content & blog & value conversations but where I struggle is with the tech. stuff. I have to re-visit all your tech. info on the Social Media course before I dare touch my blog. Have spent the last 4 weeks untangling other computer-like problems. Wish it were on video so I could stop and start. Wish it were in writing so I could follow step-by-step. I get almost in tears I’m so over my head but I will master it. One bite at a time, re the elephant!! anyhow, I look forward to tonight, possibly Thur. though I imagine you’ll be repeating what I just heard and I “get” that. I need technical, step-by-step instructions in a form that I can use at my own speed. :) Cheers! Carole
.-= Carole Holden´s last blog ..Hello world! =-.


Barry July 28, 2009 at 3:44 am

Carole, I was in the same place regarding a click by click instruction. It can be all overwhelming. Through all of my research and online tutorials, I found several great training areas. One great site is Renegade Professional. This deals with all subjects of internet marketing. It’s literally a walk thru, click by click tutorials. It may be what you need. Do check it out. You can also access a lot of information through with Michael Klinger and Ann Seig. If you want you want to fast track this information, I have provided a link.
Good luck!


Cynthia Chitty July 27, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Gil Pizano July 28, 2009 at 1:19 am

Thanks Katie,

I just recently started my blog and have learned quite a bit from you. So much in fact that some of the ideas I originally had for my site, I’ve since left alone due to the lessons you’ve taught. You have a very easy way of giving people a clear understanding of what you wish for them to learn from you and that is such a special gift. Looking forward to checking out the webinar this Thursday.

One item that I wish you would cover is how to best choose from all the widgets and plugins that people have available to them both on and off of Also, there are many plug-ins in Wordpress that state “Warning. This plugin has not been tested with your version of Wordpress!” which leads people to be hesitant to use it on there site. This for me happens more often than not. What is your advice for someone who would like to utilize a particular widget or plugin from Wordpress only to find out that Wordpress gives them the above message?

Warmest Regards and Thank You!

Again, thank you and best regards!

P.S. By the way would you be willing to share with your readers who have blogs themselves how you created the tabbed widget on the right-hand side of your blog site? The one the has “‘Popular’, ‘Comments’ and ‘tags'” as tab choices? I would love to create a similar setup for my blog but haven’t figured out how to do.

Your content is excellent! I think you provide such value to everything you present. You can’t go wrong with your direction!
Thanks again!


Rebecca July 28, 2009 at 4:16 am

Hi Katie,

I think you are awesome! Thank you for all the great content you make available!!

Katie, I have 2 passions & 2 different NWM companies. I’d love to know how to market them. Should I merge them on my main site, or keep them seperate.. One is Send Out Cards, the most awesome way to nurture relationships 😉 the other is Essential Oils. I Love them both!

I appreciate your wisdom and look forward to your response. You are wise beyond your years!!


Katie Freiling July 28, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Hey Rebecca, that’s a very good question. You want your blog to brand YOU, not your network marketing companies. So I would focus on a niche that represents who you are and what you’re passionate about. Once people get to know you, like you, trust you, and start following you, they’ll do some research to see which business opportunities you’re involved with and reach out to connect with you about them. I’ll discuss the best way to do this on Thursday, but essentially, I would start brainstorming on what you’d like to share with people that goes above and beyond your network marketing companies… Is it creating freedom in the home business industry? Is it empowerment? Is it growth, spirituality, social media, building relationships, or healing? I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!


Meredith July 28, 2009 at 4:23 am

great info Katie – thanks!


when you dont have a list built out – what do you have to offer a “partner” any ideas for value one can provide when u have lack luster list…..?

i see this as useful after you have been doing this a while and are more established…any thoughts?


Katie Freiling July 28, 2009 at 5:02 pm

Hey Meredith, that’s a very good question… You do not need to have an established list to start building relationships and strategic partnerships. I would suggest starting off by building up a following on Facebook and Twitter and cultivating relationships with targeted people in your niche. You can start the relationship building process by promoting other people via a ‘tweet’ or facebook wall update. When you start promoting others first, they will be much more likely to promote you and you can start the reciprocity process very easily. You’ll also want to start off with people who are your ‘peers’, meaning people who have businesses similar to yours. These people will most likely be happy to promote you if you promote them first. On the webinar on Thursday, I’ll discuss how to get the attention of ‘bigger networkers or bloggers’ with a simple strategy… Looking forward to seeing you there! :)


Esther Braden July 28, 2009 at 6:39 am

Many Thanks, Michael.

Riina July 28, 2009 at 3:30 pm

Hi Katie,

I’m truely a big fan of yours and your blog. Would love to have an upline like you! That’s never impossible isn’t it.
Your webinar is held at 3am my time and I would really love if you recorded that and make it awailable later on.
I would like you to cover next things:
1. Did you set up your blog by your self or did you you use a webb designer/master?
2. How to post a youtube video on your blog?
3. Was this blog components already made as wordpress templet, how the posts are fysically shown on you blog?
4.How did you make these buttons on the top of your blog?

Thank you for your great content and you are truely doing an amazing job online.
Love and light,


Katie Freiling July 28, 2009 at 4:57 pm

Hi Riina, no problem! It will definitely be recorded and I will make sure to cover those things for you! :)


Riina July 28, 2009 at 5:31 pm

Hi again Katie,

Thank you some much for reply.
One more question.
Every blog should have their own niche right.
Your blog should provide valuabele information to your readers at the same time when you have your business side by side. Your niche is personal development and spirituality, the same what I’m also interested about but all the people can’t have the same niche. When you are doing mlm and your passion is forexaple out side of the business let’s say nitting or car racing is that still relevant in the business perspective?
How to tie business and your intress together in a relevant way? Or does it just happen according to the law of attraction.
And it’s also important to stay in you niche that you don’t confuse your readers too much.

Love to hear from you again.
When I have started and get it running a bit I would love to have you as my mentor if that could be possible!



Fonz van der Linden July 28, 2009 at 7:03 pm

Hi Katie!

I’m traveling on thursday and although I’m going to do my best to make it to the webinar, I’m not so sure. So it’s awesome that you are recording it! Deffinitely looking forward to learning more from you. You are a great leader and an awesome role model. :)

The question I have is how you monetize the email list that you create at the end of the formula you have shared. I’ve been on your list through your blog and have never gotten a single email from you telling me to buy something.


Katie Freiling July 28, 2009 at 9:09 pm

Hi Daye, that’s a great question… And that’s definitely something I will cover on Thursday’s webinar. If you miss it, don’t worry because I’ll have it recorded :)


Buff July 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

HI Katie,
You are fantastic and I’m so glad I found you. I am really looking forward to your webinar because starting a blog and doing exactly what you just recommended has been at the top of my priority list and now, thank you for helping me figure it out!!! I don’t even know enough about how to do it to ask great questions, but I am interested in being able to set something up that will link to multiple websites; have a simple, but fun and interesting layout; and be a place that people will love to hang out and return to. So, I know you’re going to show us so much and I can hardly wait. Thanks again.


Buff July 28, 2009 at 11:26 pm

I wanted to ditto Daye’s question….because I’ve been wondering the same thing and wondering how one can create income without being pushy or even obvious about the product/s.
