Simple Points about Online Marketing

May 27, 2013


There are many great opportunities for online/network marketers today and those increase with fast changing technology particularly in the mobile industry.

There are some things that people should try to  find out about  when they take the step to become entrepreneurs in online /network marketing. The industry has many years of  future growth and the market is wide open. So if you have thoughts about getting into it and you have a great idea, there are a few simple points here that might be of use.

One of the  attractions about online/network  marketing is the low entry cost. Sometimes people don’t really know how much money they will need to kick off in their online/network marketing business. It’s easy to say all you need is a laptop and a phone. However then the costs can kick in before you start earning. So if you are thinking of getting into this industry, or any other business think hard about why you want to do it.  You do need some money. What for? To advertise to buy into training. There are some avenues for  learning and advertising for little or no cost, but those are  the ones  where you need to be able to learn quickly or you will get despondent and give up. Don’t get into that mode. It’s a good idea to get a good mentor. Sometimes to get a good mentor that person will want you to buy into his/her primary business, often for a monthly subscription. Monthly subscriptions  can be at various levels from entry-level to mastery.

There are some really good people who are putting out  really valuable free training and advice in the industry. Try to find those. It’s up to you to find out who you want to work with. After you have been on some  of the training that you’ve selected, you may want to sign up with the person who presented it because you were impressed with him/her, and you got value from it. It’s always helpful for the presenter if you give feedback in the comments section of their blog or demonstration. That’s your call.

Read the terms of agreement before you sign up to a  company membership.  If those are not available on the  exciting offer you are looking at, ask for them.  Just email the entrepreneur  who is promoting it and find out. That’s often hard to do in the excitement of getting into a great opportunity you’re  often busting to click buy and push through your credit card details.

Track What You Spend

Be focused on what you want. Be ready to track what you spend and only buy what you really need.  Calculate the hours in a day that you can work at this venture, this is so you don’t buy all the stuff that comes into you sight on the internet. Allocate time to work on each opportunity, before you buy.  Have a monthly budget for your operation  no matter how small or big it is, and know what you want to spend  it on.  Often there is a limited time offer that excites people to jump in and get started.  For example do a trial for a $1 for a limited  amount of days, and then sign up as a member. Later it can be time-consuming to  unsubscribe or cancel, because what you thought you were getting into is different to what you expected, and the cost is more than what you expected. Be careful about the term unsubscribe and cancel, and the way they are used. Unsubscribe could mean you just don’t get any more emails or offers. But you will still be paying that monthly fee.

Webinars and Hangouts

While you are looking for ways to develop your business, you can get on a webinar or a hangout about a business offer and be really blown away by the success that people demonstrate. It can be really attractive and exciting. If you do dive in be ready for some hard work and be practical about what you are taking on board.  Be  very disciplined when it comes to managing your  own time .

Good webinar hosts usually have a question and answer session at the end of their training or demonstration so be ready to ask questions at the end, in the chat box. Often you can get access to a replay of the webinar so that you can go through it again in you own time. Look for that opportunity.

When you have been on a webinar or a training session, soon after the training put that learning into action. Decide if it works for you and keep on doing it.

It’s easy to get onto lots of training and you can end up with many notes that you don’t have time to go over and use. Plan your work and work your plan.

Bring Vision to Life

March 14, 2013


In network marketing you have to know what you want out of life and you have to believe in yourself. Working for what you dream of takes drive and stickability. So you need a vision and then you need goals to help you to step along a continuum to make it to each milestone until you finally make the vision come to life.  I just think that you have to do all the hard yards to get each  of your goals to materialise. Each goal has to be linked to the vision that  you hold in your mind’s eye. You must not be distracted. That’s where your will power and discipline comes in. Establish a daily routine and stick to it. Ray Higdon has a daily  list of routines that you can get access to by going to his blog and search for daily routine.

Just looking at persistence and how it works here is a brief story.

Daegan Smith tells the story about Lawrence Tam  That I love.  I think it was in 2009, Lawrence went to see Daegan in Maui for a workshop with a small group of entrepreneurs. When Lawrence left he told Daegan that one day in the next year and a half he (Daegan) would see Lawrence do something big. After about a year Lawrence had a boomer $ month, now he does $100,000 month. This is because Lawrence left that workshop with one important skill and one belief. He learned how to create an irresistible offer and he held the belief that “It’s easy to make a lot of money than a little”. Lawrence is focused and he works to keep his family provided for and he tithes to his church, while he helps others in the network marketing industry.

That story is about top network marketers who care about the people they work with. They are both disciplined and expect people to listen and duplicate.  Make sure that what you focus on is what you love doing. If you can do that you are on a winner.
