Today, many of us would say that your network marketing business is truly in jeopardy without a web presence. Why is this so? Well, have you seen the day and age in which we live? Ask yourself this, how do you find the answers you are looking for today?
Forever network marketing has been dogged by those who see it as only an opportunity for uncaring “opportunists” at some shady hotel meeting. Today, network marketing is seeing brighter times as people, with the help of the internet, can actually build successful organizations by helping others do the same, easier and faster.
So let’s take a look at why you need a web presence here and, how important it is to stay focused on your marketing efforts and how, together.
It’s A New Age, But The Same Old Practice
It is amazing how many network marketers still try the old “bait and switch” tactic of in home and hotel meetings, seriously, it’s 2013. It is time to take the thoughts and lessons from Jim Rohn to the internet already.
We live in the age of Google+ Hangouts, WordPress, Youtube and Facebook or Twitter for crying out loud. It is time you have a presence online and truly build your network marketing business the right way, the first time.
Today’s networker is in jeopardy of losing out, how do we know this? well look at these facts:
- We are not going to put 4$ a gallon of gas to go to your hotel meeting.
- We are not going to your home to be sold stuff.
- If we do not ask, you need not tell us.
- We do not like to be sold crap all the time.
- We know it’s wonderful…for YOU.
- If it really is going to “help” me? Then send me the LINK!
This is why a presence online today is a must, we do not want to be sold, we want to be informed, educated and find it on our own.
Sorry “old school” marketers, but I can do without home and hotel weekly meetings to pat each other on the butts for selling your mom on the “opportunity,” your mom would do it because she is your mom.
For those of us who are a part of the network marketing industry, leads are far better online, they are of a higher quality and, they are free, they do not even cost me gas in the tank.
There are those I have personally seen struggle for years trying to make it work. Eventually, they get online, learned how to build a real presence here backed by real information find massive success in a short period of time.
Some may say that getting in front of someone is better, well, what do you think we are doing here? We get in front of scores, hundreds, thousands and even millions here everyday. And, to tell you the truth, we get in front of them on a personal level at that.
Through such platforms as;
- Sales pages
- Email campaigns
- Social media
and so on, we have the chance here to not only get that personal influence happening, but because of these platforms, we can build trust.
We do not have to be “in your face” with the internet, which is why so many people prefer a Google+ Hangouts for a meeting than you in their house trying to mind melt them about your opportunity…we can mind melt ourselves.
You Will Lose, Eventually…
It’s like Cameron said about Ferris Bueller:
He’ll keep calling me, he’ll keep calling me until I come over. He’ll make me feel guilty. This is uh… This is ridiculous, ok I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go. What – I’LL GO. CRAP.
I do not want to be that person…do you? Thought so. See, most people today will search and join things on their own time for their own reasons. Of course we can share reasons why they should and, by knowing how to get found online, have the presence available for them when they search.
Network marketing has changed, but only in the fact of what we market with, and how we market to them ( i.e. creating good content, information and calls to action based on, once again, good content ).
Network marketing today is seeing a boom because of mass communication, the only issue is…where are you in all of this?
So, is your network marketing business in jeopardy of failing without a web presence? Yes, so get one now and learn how to change lives through good opportunities here.
