Why Market Online?
If you’re like most people in Network Marketing or Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) companies, you’ve been told to start with your “warm market” and making a list of everyone you know. You’ve probably been told that this is a face-to-face business.
I’ve had success doing things the old way. So naturally, that’s what I taught my team, you know… make your names list, contact friends & family, go door to door, go out to shopping centers to talk to people, setting up tables in front of grocery stores, buying leads when times were slow. Those are the kinds of things we did, and you follow-up, and you follow-up and you follow-up.
We built a full-time income, and we were coaching those on our team. We went out prospecting together, called leads together… I showed them everything that I knew and how I built my business. We plugged into industry coaches like Dani Johnson, Big Al Schreiter, and many others; and we plugged people in to every leadership training we could find to empower them to be successful. I was always looking ways to create systems to help our team achieve success.
While those things are still very important to your business, especially if you’re new, I’m here to tell you that you can use the internet to leverage your growth. There are billions of people online today. You only have to reach a fraction of a percent of them to make a huge difference in your business. If you reach the right audience, you can create a profitable online business, and enjoy all the benefits of working from home.
Another advantage of leveraging the internet is to give yourself “time freedom”. We all want freedom in our lives, but most of us who are earning the income we want find that we’re doing it at the expense of our time.
Once you setup the system, the internet can prospect and build relationships for you 24/7 – whether you’re at the beach, sleeping, going on vacation, or whatever you like to do.
Of course, it’s not quite that easy! If it were, everyone would be doing it. 🙂 But if you are committed to learning and developing first, you can create a more automated business that will run on some degree of auto-pilot.
Think about it. When you want to know more about something where’s the first place you go to find out? I know I go straight to google.com. People who are searching for ways to make extra money or ways to work from home are doing the exact same thing. Wouldn’t it be great if your website was the one that came up when they searched?
It’s a well known fact that a prospect that comes looking for you is infinitely better than a prospect that you went looking for. The internet has the ability to bring people to you and to even prequalify them for you.
One the prospect has landed on your page, they are much more qualified because of the time they spent to look for and find you. After they’ve looked around your well-written website, they contact you to get more information. What more can you ask for?
Online, you have the ability to attract and sort your prospects. You can setup tools to market your website, sort through those who are really interested and those who are not, and even to sponsor them without having to be there. People sort themselves by either staying on your page or leaving, and by asking for more information. This assures that you only spend your time with those who are really interested.
But of course, just having a website doesn’t mean anyone’s actually going to look at it. So… come with me and I’ll give you the tools to do this yourself. But, keep in mind, to make this happen, you will need to spend some time and money learning this process before you can make it work. I will give you all the information you need, but you must be willing to put in the effort to step up to make this happen, or you might as well quit right now. OK… ready?
