    If you have joined a network marketing company in the past you have most likely heard the following.

    1. Go to your warm market and prospect all your friends, family, and neighbors.

    2. Share your business opportunity with anyone and everyone (3 foot rule).

    3. Purchase Business Opportunity Leads and make cold calls.

    4. Go to all the major events that your company sponsors

    5. Get on the autoship program

    6. Follow our easy to use system and you will be rich

    7. Our company is the best and has the best compensation plan

    8. Just start talking to people about our company and people will be excited to join your opportunity


    Im sure you have heard of all those things up there and the truth is none of that stuff works anymore. We are using more high tech stuff today to make it more simple for home based business.

    The thing is that your not utilzing the right things to get more prospects into your business. Lets be honest here some of the people who join a MLM for the first time don't have a clue on how to get new prospect, your upline is assuming you know how.

    So lets get to the chase here try these methods if you want to succeed in your business.

    1. Pay-Per Click Advertising PPC is a very powerful marketing strategy I would learn how to use PPC before doing it but once you learn it you will have alot of prospect visiting your site.

    2. Article Marketing This is another powerful marketing strategy but you won't see quick results as PPC but you will get some leads, just make sure you post alot of articles to get exposure and make sure you are giving valuable information to the reader instead of just marketing your business.

    3. Social Media Sites Using social media is a very effective way of getting leads, if you are not using social media you are consider dead in the water. There are millions of people on social medias such as myspace, facebook etc....use the social media to get exposure.

    4. Video Marketing This is another one that can generate some leads if you can explain yourself in 2-5 minutes and get to the point of what you are doing then you will gain some leads and don't forget to leave a link to you site. Also make sure you are building relationship at the same time.

    5. Forum Posting Very effective it will take a little time but you will succeed if you learn how to build relationships in this area. Make sure that you are involve in the forum give feedback as suppose to just talking about your business opportunity. Give valuable information so people can keep reading your stuff. It's not hard it's about building relationship with people instead of looking at them like dollar signs.

    Hope that this help I will be posting some more good stuff so you can succeed at your venture. Take care and thank you for reading my post.

    Great post Abie!

    Yup, I was one of those that dialed leads FAITHFULLY for over TWO years..... whew, am I glad THAT phase of my life is over.[​IMG]

    I did learn a lot though, about personal development through all that. Network marketing is like a personal development on steriods program.[​IMG]

    While I personally prefer Internet marketing, I wouldn't say that the traditional methods "don't work." I know a good number of rich network marketers who could care less about online methods--they do it the old fashioned way, thank you very much.

    I think it depends a lot on your personality. I know some very personable, extroverted folks who would probably do better using traditional methods than via Internet marketing.

    My suggestion is to choose marketing methods that match your interests, abilities, and personality. More people on an Internet forum are going to prefer online marketing but then you're dealing with an audience already predisposed to working and networking on the 'Net.

    All the Best,

    Mark

    I definitely would recommend talking to your warm market! Because if you don't, someone else will. [​IMG]

    I have had my friends be sponsored by other people in my company, as well as other friends join other companies.

    Also, I definitely recommend going to ALL of your company sponsored events. It builds belief and duplicates (as long as you continue to attend!) as your team will continue to believe in your company.

    And of course you need to be on an autoship to build a team residual income. If that is optional in your company, then I suggest either looking at another company or getting into top-tier sales.

    However, I believe all the online marketing techniques should be practiced daily. The only problem is that it's not as fast as some offline prospecting techniques such as a home meeting.

    Where else can you have 3-10 people join your team within 10 days, pretty much for free?

    Well said Gabriel! You've got it down pat friend... my only qualifier would be tapping into the warm market of your prospects. Don't just stop at your level... Have them reach out to that warm market. Work down through their network.

    YOUR WARM MARKET!

    That's it right there for quick success and results. It is amazing that people will discount talking to your warm market, regardless if they join or not. To often people are caught up in talking to their warm market for fear of rejection. Well let them reject but not on an account of you making the decision for them.

    If you have a good rapport with people you know then you should not hesitate to talk to all that you know that would be open to earn more money.

    It seems very odd to me that a person would start their home business and then say well I only want to talk to strangers. If I was a stranger and I found out that you didn't even try talking to your warm market I would not want to join you. Why...

    If you don't believe in your business enough to talk to your warm market but are willing to try to only "dump it" on a stranger than you don't really believe in your business.

    Granted there are some people that you know, that are not worth talking with, but it's hard to see where that is a blanket application that should be applied to everyone that you know.

    Be about the business of promoting and sharing your "earn more income" opportunity with others in a variety of ways but don't let one of those ways be NOT taking to your warm market immediately.

    You can have the same or better success in the online MLM world because you don't really have to call leads in order to close them. You don't have to contact new people all the time face to face. You don't have to beg them to join. Etc....

    There are many good companies online that have videos and presentations that close the prospects for you.

    I used to call leads and it took the life out of me. I am and will never do that again. What a waste of time and my energy.

    The problem is if your warm market isn't successful and have a garage full of products they can't sell or can't recruit others then you have a problem.

    Why not just tell your warm market when they ask what you are up to these days and if they are interested in hearing more, then that's when you can give them your little shpill. If they want to hear even more, then you give them your big prepared shpill. Otherwise, it can and will drive them away. I don't believe that I would totally forget about them, but would be careful who I would shpill to and do it with much tact. People are hungry nowadays for extra income. This could be the most opportune time to attract the warm market. Asking them to "partner up" with you by doing a biz together has always been an effective way to build. No one wants to go it alone and they know and trust you, then be sure to act like a partner.
