Taking an MLM business to the next level
with“internet network marketing” is as easy as riding a bike…
But you have to get it right!
There are a lot of twists and turns on the road to internet network marketing success and plenty of traps and other time-wasting hazards to avoid along the way.
To give you an idea, my first few years online produced a only a few leads and I sponsored just as little team members FROM our online efforts.
BUT, in the past 18 months I “cracked the code” and have used a system to create over 9,000 MLM leads, earn tens of thousands of dollars in miscellaneous affiliate commissions and have sponsored over 200 new team builders into our various businesses.
So let’s talk about a few of the lessons learned over the years so you, too, can now start producing incredible results.
What Is Internet Network Marketing?
Before we can answer this question, perhaps it is better to start with something more basic like:
How can I effective promote my MLM both online and offline?
What is really required to build a profitable business fast?
If you break down what steps are required to build a profitable network marketing business, at first glance, it doesn’t appear too challenging…
- Connect With People
- Present Your Opportunity
- Follow Up to Collect a Decision
That’s it. Both online and offline.
Take those 3 steps consistently over an extended period of time and you are virtually guaranteed to have incredible success in this industry.
Internet Network Marketing Challenges
The challenge for most people starts at the first step:Connecting with people.
In fact, industry averages reveal most people who join a network marketing company (even the best of intentions) only sponsor 2.6 new distributors their entire careers – which might span across numerous companies – and many, many years in the business.
Why is it that most people struggle to bring new people into their internet network marketing business?
It’s is due entirely to the lack of making new contacts on a regular basis.
Think about your own experience…
You join a company with great products, a fantastic compensation plan, proven leadership, training and more.
You’re excited and immediately share this “opportunity of a lifetime” with your family, friends, co-workers and business associates.
Perhaps you sponsor one or two new builders and you’re off to a fast, profitable start.
Then your list runs dry and you have literally approached everyone you know.
Now what? Now what do you do?
Internet Network Marketing for Leads
At this point you might call your upline and they suggest you purchase leads and start prospecting on the phone… :s
Or, perhaps, they explain the “three foot rule” which means you strive to connect with anyone and everyone within three feet of where you are standing or sitting at any point in time
Another common remedy is to start advertising. Hmmmmmm…
- Car Magnets
- Classified Ads
- Drop Cards
- Tear Sheets, and
And while all of these methods work for some people, they do not all work for everybody due to the lack of an advertising budget, skill or even a lifestyle that contributes to meeting new people on a regular basis.
So again… “Now what?”
I read everything I can get my hands on and study people who were claiming to have great success. It boils down to create a generic or company specific lead generation system. The idea is to host a lead generation site, advertise… and drive prospects to your site. This will serve as the first point of contact (connecting with people we don’t know) and will then guide them into a simple presentation.
So does it work? Yes and no.
It works if we ADVERTISE and drive prospects to the page, we will collect their contact information.
So it works, but just having an internet network marketing website up doesn’t really add any value to the lead generation system. We could have produced the same result by leading prospects to a voice mail system or any other means of making first contact.
Standing alone, an internet network marketing site is practically worthless.
Internet Network Marketing Solution
The secret to enjoy massive internet network marketing success is to… … stop promoting your business opportunity!
STOP PROMOTING for Massive Internet Marking Success
I know, it sound counter-intuitive. But think about it…
- Do you open and read all of the zillions of new opportunity emails you receive?
- Do you click on biz opp ADS and readily give up your contact information to learn more?
- Or do you use the internet more to find answers to the challenges you are having right now?
The key is to start leading with VALUE first to attract the people most likely to purchase your products or join you once you have established a value-based relationship.
People like to do business with those they know, like and trust.
It is as simple and as difficult as that.
Solve problems! The KEY Is To Lead With Value
- Offer to guide people to a solution they are looking for.
- Offer software tutorials, tips, tricks and inside secrets you have learned over the years.
- Offer free training like included in our Blogging System.
Meet people where they are, offer a hand up and make yourself available.
Use internet network marketing to establish relationships first and foremost – then, when the time is right, guide your new friends into a solution that makes sense for them…
Like this might make sense to you!
