Internet Network Marketing – In A Bad Economy The Internet Thrives

Between smart phones and the internet it is easier than ever to get noticed online. Before the internet people had to do things like leave their house to be productive. In today’s world you can run a thriving business from the comfort of your home and never have to leave. Now I am not implying that you shouldn’t leave your house ever, that’s just creepy. However I am suggesting that you realize that the internet is a virtual world just waiting to be untapped by the right people.

Who are the right people? You have to be driven by purpose, have vision and strong belief in yourself. While many people are telling you how terrible the economy is, somewhere in the world someone is doing well.

What this means to you is that if you are marketing in a global market the chances of you actually making money online are pretty good. You just need to find your niche of hungry buyers.

Internet Network Marketing – Networking Is About Relationship Building Not Selling

Only a foolish person would dismiss the power of networking.  When I talk about networking I am not necessarily talking about a network marketing business.  Matter of the fact the most important lesson I learned from the network marketing industry is the power of forming a strong network. Internet marketers have been using the power of networking for years in the form of Joint Venturing.

At some point in your online journey you are going to bring something unique and valuable to the table. It is at this point having created  a strong network of marketing friends can really help you get the word out about what you are doing.

I started this blog with the idea that I would help enlighten people to the reality of internet marketing online. After 10 years of marketing online, I realize that the best type of online business you could do is one that you have a strong passion for.

To many people try and chase the money. The problem with this is they end up not having any real passion other than the love of money.  Doing something you love to do is more gratifying than trying to make a zillion dollars by peddling something you really don’t much care about other than the financial rewards.

Internet Network Marketing – It’s All About The Marketing Baby!

It doesn’t matter what you are selling as long as you know how to get whatever it is in front of the right people. Things like knowing what type of web pages to use in front of safelist traffic vs what type of web pages to use in a ppc campaign is very important.  Are you using social media tactics? Are you building a list? Do you know how to establish a solid relationship with people on your list.

You will hear countless people tell you that email marketing is dead. I will agree doing solo ads and buying ezine ads are not as effective as they use to be. But having a homegrown list that you have loved and nurtured is priceless. So in essence email marketing is just as important today as it was 10 years ago, even though times have changed people still love being kept in the loop. Don’t automatically assume you are not in the internet network marketing niche just because you don’t promote a network marketing business.

Internet network marketing involves affiliate marketing, funded proposal offers, front end offers, back end offers. Basically internet network marketing is internet marketing. Heck even the ex president of the United States is in favor of networking.

I am not suggesting that a network marketing business is for everyone.  I am saying that the skills I learned as I was learning how to promote a network marketing business online are the same skills you need to understand how to use to promote any business online.

If you ask me Internet Network Marketing should be a niche all to its own. Some of the best marketers I know who are in this niche don’t even represent any particular network marketing company because they make more money off of selling shovels if you know what I mean. After its all said and done, the people who know how to get targeted traffic to their websites are the ones that are making money.

Tip: Always remember that you don’t need to know everything. Pretty much everything can be outsourced for a price. Focus on what you are good at and outsource the things you are not.To use a “system” could cost you on the low end $360 a year. Why not just pay that price 1 time and have a designer create a site for you? Maybe it will cost more depending on what you want created but my point is where there is a will there is a way.

What do you consider internet network marketing to be?

      Hi Jared, thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree the more you fail the closer you come to becoming successful. Sadly to many people give up just when they are ready to reach a break through. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

    Hi Larry,

    Trolling through my good blogs to read list this article caught my eye because today I wrote about something similar. I’m sure ComLuv will show it to ya. Stop by and let me know what you think! :)

    But, something you said really jives with me and it’s a message I’m trying to make sure my team understand. You said that “too many people try and chase the money.”

    I think that’s something that leads people into ignoring networking and sticking strictly to internet marketing. I separate the two terms, but believe that the real potential in internet marketing exists when you mix it with network marketing.

    And then, of course, passion has so much to do with it. When you love what you do, when you believe in your message, not only does it make it worthwhile (because let’s face it, money really isn’t everything) but it also translates across to the messages you put out. People can feel that passion. And people want that passion.

    Thanks for the great read! :)
