You, Internet and Network Marketing – How does it work?
If you are reading this article, you must be wondering how internet is related in your network marketing business. Before I started to do online prospecting last year, I thought that building my MLM business on the internet is not possible. I have heard rumors that there are a lot of scams that tricked people into believing that it is possible to do online prospecting.
I have been doing traditional offline prospecting for almost 5 years in this industry. I have faced countless of rejections and done a lot of cold calls. Still there is no much success. Till last year in 2007, I decided to look for help. I found an Expert who is an Internet network marketer. We have a coaching session and he taught priceless lessons that help me to recruit hundreds of downlines in less than 3 months.
So how does it work? Internet marketing has been around for a long time about a decade. Thousands of people have made millions of dollars online. To succeed in doing network marketing prospecting online, you need to understand the basic principle of how it worked in the internet marketing industry.
The 3 Basic principles to succeed online
This is the 3 basic principles that you must follow to succeed online:
1) Create your own marketing system. Most people do not understand that to make money online, you need to create your marketing system. You cannot have the mindset of a “get rich quick” mentality. Adopting the right mindset will determine your failure or success.
2) Set up your leads generation system. Leads are your lifeblood of your internet and network marketing business. Without leads, there is no one to pitch your business opportunity or sell your products. Example of a leads generation system is article marketing.
3) Set up your email marketing system. You need to purchase an auto responder to write emails and send it out to your prospects in automation. It acts as your sales assistant to help you build relationships with your prospects and sell your products.
Now you have understood the 3 basic principles how to succeed online, next, I am going to share with you what my mentor taught me about how internet and network marketing is related and how to use internet into your secret weapon to build a huge motivated team.
