The reality of the internet network marketing industry (The Home Business Niche) is people do not really know what they are selling.
Raise your hand if you had someone ever call you up and tell you they have been in the network marketing industry for 15 years and they have never seen a comp plan as good as the one they are telling you about now?
You will be told how they are having so much fun and are hardly doing anything at all. Often times they sound very sincere and very excited about their business opportunity..Â In some circles this type of selling is called reversed marketing and many times they got your information because they received your advertising, on not so rare occasions they straight up spam you.
This is the worse type of marketing you can do. The reason is , if I was interested in the opportunity I would have certainly contacted them first. Personally I hate being sold…. BUTÂ I really do love to buy. Most people are like that. We spend our money on all types of things , but we hate people telling us what to buy.
Effective internet network marketing strategies will bring the prospect to you in one way shape or form. The idea of using the internet to market your business is to get prospects finding you through YOUR marketing efforts. This is why you will hear many good online marketers tell you they don’t cold call.
Not only do we not cold call anyone, we don’t ask family members or friends to join our business. We are even dare I say lazy… While being good at internet network marketing requires a lot of hard work and is very time consuming it is also very rewarding…
The internet is the ultimate leveraging tool. While it does take time to set up your business once you have the pieces all together most of the tedious stuff is put on automatic pilot. Once your business is up and running you really can work 15mins a day and take the rest of the day off.
Re-read what I just said. “Once your business is up and running you really can work 15mins a day and take the rest of the day off.”
Before you are totally set up you will put in a crazy amount of hours getting your business set up.
This is where 95% of hopeful home businesses owners get it all wrong. There are not really many differences between starting a business offline as it is starting online. Both require Knowledge, Money and Time.
The difference is you can realistically start your online business for under $1000 If that figure scares you imagine starting a business offline.. Consider having to spend $50,000 to get your business started.
When I started my online business, I had no on hand cash to start with, just a credit card and boy did I max that out pretty fast.
The reality is you really can start a profitable online business for under $300 and if you have patience and are willing to put in the work you could potentially start your business on a shoestring budget of $10 a month, however the trade off is you have to be willing to put 40 + hours a week into your business if you hope to get anywhere with it.
I can tell you a million and one stories how people fail online, but I can only tell you a handful of stories of people that are successful.
The #1 reason why people fail is because of lack of patience. It takes time to learn everything you need to know to become a competent internet network marketer. If you are only working your business 5 hours a week and are not spending any money in advertising don’t expect miracles.
Don’t look for a short cutÂ because none exist I spent well over $80,000 looking for it myself.Â This is not like the movie field of dreams, just because you build it does not mean they will come. You have be an active participant in your business.
All the so called “guru’s” will tell you that they can show you their secret… They really don’t go into detail how much money they spent to figure out the “secret”
The real secret is there really is no secret, regardless how you get there in the end we are all doing the same thing.
This my friends is where finding a good mentor becomes very important. A good mentor can save you thousands of dollars in costly mistakes and they can help guide you in the steps YOU have to take if you are sincere about finding success online.
