 Dear Friend,

My name is Linwood Austin. I am perhaps the only advertising copywriter in America who understands the MLM community.

This is Good News For Network Marketers

You see, I know how to quickly build a network marketing downline of 100 People in your typical MLM Business using a powerful direct mail strategy.

Note: 100 People Turns into $10,000 A Month In Almost Any Network Marketing Opportunity.

 THIS IS — Surprising New Way You Can Make A Decent Income In Almost Any Network Marketing Company.

A few years ago, Mark Yarnell wrote a book called …

“How to Become Filthy Stinking Rich In Network Marketing …

Without Alienating Your Family And Friends

If you read the book, you’ll learn a lot about marketing, period. Not just network marketing.

Here is how the numbers work with Network Marketing (also called Multi-Level-Marketing):

If you were to open up a bookstore, a restaurant, a shoe store, a plumbing company… etc… you could spend perhaps $100,000.00 (one-hundred thousand dollars) or more just to open your doors.

And… you know in your heart that you could NEVER survive by selling your products or services to just your family and friends.

No. With those kinds of businesses… you need hundreds of customers each week… or hundreds each month… thousands of customers each year just to make a go of it.

But with a typical network marketing opportunity (MLM)… generally speaking… you only need 100 people in your down-line—as customers or distributors… and you’ll make about $10,000 per month.

How it is possible? Because … generally speaking… if you get just 100 customers in your down-line… in a typical network marketing company… 80 people will do little or nothing for you.

But… and get this… 20 of those customers-distributors will be so excited about the opportunity… that they will go out and hustle and generate a down-line under you and them of some 10,000 names… and you’ll make about $1 per name per monthno matter what the company “compensation plan” is.

All network marketing companies give you some bonuses along the way for recruiting people personally… but the real kicker is – you’ll make some $10,000 per month by just bringing in some 100 people into the network.

For example, when you personally recruit 5 people, the MLM company might give you a bonus of $100 per person as you begin to grow your business. But that is not the point here.

My point is about the money you’ll make on the whole downline.

And it generally works out that recruiting 100 people will turn into a downline of 10,000 names… and you’ll make $1 per name, per month.

Listen, I know one lady who recruited only 3 people into her MLM and ended up making $5,000 a month off the efforts of those 3 recruits. How did that work? It’s because the 3 people she recruited were her 3 adult sons, who were very excited about the opportunity. And her adult sons created a downline so big that this lady never recruited anyone else… yet she made some $5,000 bucks a month from her sons’ efforts.

Again, Generally speaking, get one hundred customers/distributors and you’re almost guaranteed a $10,000 per month income. 80 people will be lazy and do nothing for you. But 20 will make it all happen.

NOTE:… These are much better numbers than trying to open up a bookstore, hair salon, coffee shop, etc.


The main problem with network marketing is that… most folks who jump in don’t know much about MARKETING.

Marketing is the missing element for most folks who join a “network marketing” company.

It does not cost much to jump into a typical network marketing company. You can get into almost any of them for $300 bucks… sometimes $1,495… depending on the level you want with the commission package and positioning.

So, the cost to join any MLM is way cheaper than opening up a regular brick and mortar store or restaurant, etc.

But after you join one, then comes the question of HOW DO YOU MARKET IT?

AND that’s where most folks lose it. They try to sell it to family and friends… and when family and friends are done laughing at you, you’re stuck. You might even think of quitting.

What you need is a customer or prospect universe that is bigger than your family and friends. Way bigger.

And I’m here to give it to you.

And I have the perfect SYSTEM to market your product or service to… if you’re into network marketing.

It’s a very special collection mailing lists I have, of people who are looking for a new income opportunity. AND… All you need is the RIGHT NETWORK MARKETING SALES LETTER.

I personally hate cold calling people on the phone. But I love direct mail. I have made a lot of money by mail over the last 30 years.

Since the late 1980’s I have created more, high-profit, sales-busting “direct marketing” sales letters than anyone you’ve likely ever met.

I’ve written sales letters that were mailed out to millions of folks selling everything from financial information to cars and furniture… and everything in between.

I know direct mail works. Even in this age of internet this and web site that… direct mail sales letters are still the overlooked darling of the marketing universe.

Even the high and mighty Google

uses direct mail to build their business.

Yes, it’s amazing but true. Google has a big direct mail campaign going on year after year to build their business.

But I want you to know that, even YOU can use a sales letter to build your network marketing business down-line and never have to make a cold-call again.  And live a happy, prosperous life.

The secret is in the mailing list… and the sales letter itself.

You see… you can’t use just any list… and you can’t use just any letter.

The mailing list has to be warmed up to the idea of buying from you.

And the network marketing sales letter has to be charming, helpful, informative and have elements of story appeal in it.

If the people on the mailing list are right… and the letter is strong…. I’ve seen as much as a 12% to 20% response to the mailing.

There are many thousands of people right now… all across the country who are desperately looking for an income opportunity. And many who will say YES to your offer– if it’s presented in the right kind of way.

Here is how a network marketing sales letter would work for you.

 I’ve told you that with most MLM opportunities, you only need 100 people in your down-line to make some $10,000 or more each month.

Most mailing campaigns of this type are done to a mailing list of 5,000 names of hot or warm prospects. And if we just get a 2% response – signed up with you… there’s your 100 customers… and you’re on your way to making your $10,000 a month.

Don’t think that direct mail “don’t work”. It does work. If done right.

You don’t have to mail out all 5,000 names to see if it works for you. You can mail out 25 or 250 or all 5,000.

The right kind of letter to the right list is magic when it come to sales, profits, income and a better life.

The wrong letter to the wrong list is a waste of time and money.

I talked to a network marketer the other day who snidely said “Direct mail doesn’t work… I used to own a restaurant and I used direct mail and it just don’t work.”

He couldn’t hear what I was saying.

I’m saying YES the right letter works to the right list. His mailing effort for his old restaurant did not work… why?… I don’t know, we didn’t go over it.

But even a restaurant can find direct mail profitable if they use the right letter to the right list.

(HINT: I can get the mailing list of everyone who’s going to have a birthday coming up soon… and the people on that list would really respond to a special offer from a restaurant to come have the party there.)

(SECOND HINT: I had a client, years ago, who would “mail like hell” to his own customers’ mailing list to get them to come back and he had tons of REPEAT BUSINESS. Wildly successful.)


Do you get my meaning? … If you don’t have a “marketing plan” for your network marketing business– You’re going to be stuck trying to sell your network opportunity to your family and friends… or stuck making endless cold calls on the telephone. Don’t do that. You’ll get burn out. No good.

Grab your phone… call me.

And You Can Use This Sales Letter In Your Network Marketing Business to Become “Filthy Stinking Rich”

Without Alienating Your Family And Friends.”

I’ll create a “killer” network marketing sales letter for you. And get you a “killer” mailing list of thousands of names.

When you call… Let’s talk about what network opportunity you’re involved with. Let’s talk about what kind of letter might work for you. Let’s talk about what kind of mailing list would be best for you.

The secret to making this work is the story, the appeal, the benefits, the “reason why”… and mailing out to the right list.

For years and years I lived and breathed direct mail sales letters. Selling everything from water heaters to weekend seminars to high-paid investment advice for various customers and clients… all by direct mail.

I used to look over the fence that “those MLM guys” and wonder what the heck they were doing. I couldn’t figure the whole industry out. Not until I read Yarnell’s book “HOW TO BECOME FILTHY STINKING RICH”…

And not until I discovered that, generally speaking, you only need one-hundred customers or distributors in your down-line… to make some $10,000 a month… then it all made sense to me.

Mark Yarnell was a network marketing man. He knew you MUST reach out beyond family and friends to make any real money in this business. And YES MARK YARNELL USED DIRECT MAIL TO BUILD HIS BUSINESS.

YES, I am a direct mail man. I write sales letters for network marketers. I have taken the time to discover what works and what doesn’t work in network marketing… and how best to BLEND your network marketing message with direct mail marketing.


I’m here to tell you… To get one-hundred people signed up under you… the quickest way is with a direct mail campaign… written in the right kind of way… and mailed to the right kind of mailing list.

Mail 5,000 letters… and you get the action you need to have the 100 customers you need to make this magic happen for you… with an income of some $10,000 per month. Or more.

Once you start getting $10,000.00 per month… your cash flow will go on and on for quite some time.

One network marketer I helped stopped marketing after he got enough downline customers to make some $2,000 per month. And he got $2,000 per month for about 15 years before his income started falling off because his downline fell apart.

Maybe some of them died. Maybe they just moved on. Attrition happens. It’s ok. Just call me and let’s rebuild your downline.

Are you game to talk?

Here is my number: 801-895-9598

I know that direct mail sales letters work. It even works for network marketers. IF you do it in the right kind of way.

One guy using my method was told by his CPA that he would have to quit the network marketing business until his divorce was over.

His wife wanted a divorce. And he was making good money using direct mail to build his network marketing downline. He quit network marketing and went through the divorce totally broke. After it was over, he hit the mail again… and GUESS WHAT… he quickly build his income again and he loves direct mail for his network marketing business. 

This is a special offer to serious MLMer’s who want a real solution to their marketing challenges.

Over the years I have used my direct mail marketing skills to help clients sell millions of dollars worth of products and services in every kind industry you can think of.

I’ve even made a nice chunk of change for myself testing my ideas in various MLM’s. I’m offering to help you solve a real problem. To help you build a downline no matter what MLM you’re involved with.

I know direct mail will work for MLM’s as well as it does for many other kinds of businesses out there. (Remember, I said that even Google uses direct mail.)

I’ve written sales letters for some of the biggest publishers in the country. (Agora and Phillips Publishing, to name two).

I’ve written a bunch of sales letters for two marketers (John Young and Jim Abrams) who were invited to be on Donald Trump’s Apprentice TV show… AS JUDGES.

I’ve written mailing packages for one client that helped him build a customer list of some 10 million names or more.

Now, I can help you market your network marketing opportunity.

It will cost you a small investment of $2,995 to have me write your package and help you get it in the mail. (If you just want coaching, that’s only $495 per month.)

The creative fee to have me write a sales letter for your MLM business is small compared to floundering around trying to sell your opportunity to friends and family.

Network marketing is frustrating without the right marketing strategy.

Don’t let yourself suffer failure and defeat when you could generate lots of money and hardly have to talk to anyone at all.

The goal of getting $10,000 every month for a long, long time… by recruiting about 100 people into your down-line… makes this a reasonable offer.

I’ve been called one of the top ten advertising copywriters in America.

And I didn’t arrived at that level of skill overnight.

I’ve spent many a year studying the science and art of what works and what does not work in direct mail marketing.

I’ve spent millions of dollars of my own and client’s money in testing and proving various selling ideas … measured only by sales and profits… in real world situations. My ads and sales letters were never created to win awards or look fancy with over-the-top graphics. No. My ads and sales letters are created to win sales.

 I’m telling you… you don’t have to wish and hope… for success… in network marketing.

You don’t have to do three-way-calls with your upline guy.

You don’t have suffer the scorn of your family and friends who are sure you’re into some “pyramid” scheme.

Truthfully… Every company, every business is a “pyramid” with the CEO at the top and the workers down below.

You can be smart and let me help you put together a direct mail campaign that you can send out in small batches… until you get a large enough down-line to more or less retire.

You’d be smart to pick up the phone right now… and put my skills to work for you.

The right letter to the right list is magic. I can make that magic happen for you.

I’ve helped others… now it could be your turn.

My services are not expensive.

But I’ll tell you what really is expensive…

·     It’s expensive to do nothing.

·     It’s expensive to run an ad or mailing campaign based on hunch or intuition. Not on time-tested, scientific, proven marketing principals.

·     It’s expensive to run a “little ad” for say $100 that brings you no calls and no sales.

·     It’s expensive to spend hours and hours on the phone chasing after people who resent telemarketers.

My services are cheap by comparison.

Depending on your MLM… I’ll craft a unique, powerful, charming and friendly sales message. A letter that asks the reader to say YES and join with you in the adventure of a lifetime.

And I’ll help you get it in the mail… and get your phone to ring… with buyers, customers and opportunity seekers ready and willing to sign up with you.

Are you game to talk?

I am yours,

Marketing is everything. Even if you own a hot dog stand. You don’t really own a hot dog stand, you are in the marketing business. And marketing is NOT about having a better hot dog. Marketing is all about finding a HUNGRY CROWD. If you find a HUNGRY CROWD… you can sell mediocre, so-so, hot dogs.

Marketing is about markets.
